    • 1884, Puck, volume 16, page 294:
      A pen-knife, a bunch of keys, a Bland dollar, a punched dime, five pennies, a poker-chip and two cloves falling from a trousers-pocket to the floor in the dead waste and middle of the night, when a man is trying to get to bed without awaking his wife, will make more racket than a young and playful cyclone dallying with a tinware factory.
