I

IBYCUS, a Grecian poet who improved poetry by permitting words
to rhyme at the ends of the lines.

ICARUS, father of aviation.  Record holder for the first
tumble. Selected water as the spot for his fall, and was not
picked up with the debris. Ambition:  A Wright machine.
Recreation:  Tuning up. Address:  Greece.  Clubs:  Aero.

IEKATERINOGRADSK, of Russia.  Little is known of his life
except that he built a celebrated fort to protect the poor
Cossacks from the molestations of the populace.  Was probably
blown up or died in prison.

INGERSOLL, first man to bring the price of turnips to within
the reach of authors and artists.  Historians claim he would
have made another fortune had he lived when the sun-dial trust
had its own way.

INGERSOLL, Robt.  G., one of those contented souls who did not
believe in anything, and made a fortune by telling people what
he believed.

INNOCENT, thirteen popes.  Address:  Rome.

IRVING, Washington, a pleasing American writer who visited
Westminster Abbey, made Rip Van Winkle wake up, and wrote a few
biographies.

ISAAC (last name unknown), s. Abraham and Sarah.[5] Spent his
childhood like all little Isaacs and later married Rebecca,
claimed by historians to have been a Jewess.  Had two famous
sons, Esau and Jake (see both, but especially the latter). Died
at the tender age of 180 years.

[5] Ed.  Note:  The editor apologizes for a seeming familiarity
He did his best to ascertain the lady's last name, but failed.



ISABELLA, a Spanish queen who vowed she would not change her
clothes until the Moors were driven from the country. Her
husband, the king, raised an army and accomplished the feat.
I.'s name is sometimes connected with the discovery of America.
This, however, is an error, as Columbus took a more active
part.

ISAIAH, a prophet who wore second-hand clothing.

ISHMAEL, son of Abraham, whose appearance complicated his
father's estate. Traveled extensively in the desert with his
mother.
