Alligator Pears

The Wichita Daily Eagle, Kansas, March 23, 1913

The avocado has long been afflicted with the name of “aligator pear.” Now many of the avocado types do not resemble a pear, and none of them grow on alligators.

“Resting Well” After “Celebrating” Her Divorce

Chicago Tribune, Illinois, March 9, 1934

In The Tribune of Feb. 26 we read that Mrs. Massie is “resting well” after “celebrating” her divorce. On Feb. 27 we are informed that members of the family of Gerald Peck, who was murdered, were “crushed by the news.” In today’s Tribune we read of New Yorks “worst winter,” of Lady Sibell’s “sincere public apology,” and of Dr. Wynekoop’s “confession,” all appearing on the first page. On the back page a line under an illustration tells of the walls of ice that almost “hide” the tall buildings. If the use of quotation marks in certain instances is intended to convey a hidden meaning, kindly explain your system.
