O

O'CONNELL, Dan, said to have been an Irishman.  Probably born
in Dublin, raised in Dublin.  Raised cain in Dublin.  Repealed
in Dublin. Dublined in Dublin.  Died in Dublin.  Tradition
connects his name with the early stages of the home rule bill.
Ambition:  Ireland south of Ulster.  Recreation:  Oratory.
Address:  Dublin.  Clubs:  Dublin. Favorite Color:  Green.

O'GRADY, Sweet Rosie, also of Ireland, long dead, but still
bragged about.

ORANGE, William of, also of Ireland.  He was the man who made
it a crime to wear the color named after him on the seventeenth
of March.  (See St. Patrick.)

ORPHEUS, lutist.  When a young man he was given a lute.
Practised in obscurity, and later appeared before large
audiences.  Made several successful concert tours.  Married
Eurydice.  Spent a happy honeymoon.  The bride did not wear
shoes.  She was bitten by a serpent.  She died.  O. descended
to the abode of Old Nic, and charmed him with some Grecian
ragtime.  Nic promised to return the lady if O. would promise
to get out of the place without looking around to see what
other respectable people were there. O. started for the door.
He heard familiar voices and rubbered.  That ended the
contract, and for all the editor has been able to ascertain
Eurydice is there to this day.

OSTLER, William, a doctor who was knighted for proposing that
all fossils should be ostlerized.  Ambition:  To murder the men
who got that story into print.  Recreation:  Medicine.
Address:  Oxford.  Epitaph: He Practised, But Not What He
Preached.

OTHELLO, of Venice.  Born in Morocco.  Went to Venice and fell
in love with one Desdemona, an Italian girl.  They were
married.  Mrs. Othello lost one of her favorite handkerchiefs
and was killed by her enraged husband.  Shakespeare, of
England, a writer, heard of the incident and made some money
out of it.
