LORD VIBRATE?

" Order the coachman at twelve. No ! Order him at one. Come back ! Order him in ten minutes. Stay! Don't order him at all. Why don't you go and do as I bid you? " Faced with the necessity of making up his mind about anything whatever, Lord Vibrate was utterly helpless. He dillied and dallied so long that he never managed to come to any decision, and never, therefore, got anything done. As a result he was one of the unhappiest of men and lived in a state of continually anticipating trouble. His wife, a gay, good-humoured creature, had no patience with him. She took her pleasure as and where she found it, and reproached her husband for " taking a lantern to look for misery, which the sun itself cannot discover." The vacillating Vibrate and his laughter-loving wife are two of the characters in Hol-croft's comedy: " He's Much To Blame," which is full of satirical portraits.
