Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Walter Trumbull
  Foolish as the disturbing phantoms of the night.  1
  Broke as suddenly as a widow’s saving bank.  2
  Thin as a costume worn by a Salome dancer.  3
  Welcome as the discovery of a five-dollar bill in an old coat to a salaried man the morning before pay day.  4
  Welcome as the rear view of a grizzly bear to a hunter who has left his firearms at home.  5
