Making Three Ends of it.
A young fellow, wishing to turn sailor, applied to the captain of a vessel for a berth. The captain, wishing to intimidate him, handed him a piece of rope, and said, "If you want to be a good sailor, you must make three ends of that rope." I can do that," readily responded the lad; "here is one, and here is another- that makes two. Now, here's the third," and he threw it overboard.
