HE DOESN'T LIKE THIS CHECK.
RcmlUanr of ll-nkmpt'a Ai.ct. Tlia'
Ann. Chicago Ca.liler.
"Funny things occur occatlonallj
under the opctation of the' Federal
bankruptcy law" said the cshler of t
Chicago concern as he looked at t
check for two centR he had Just re
celved In the mall. "Here's one ol
them. This check for two cents !i
thojnto'rf share of the assets of a tie-
(unit Indiana enterprise of which wc
wrt one of the creditors."
'What's funny ahojt that?" Inquir-
ed the man to whom tho cashier wat
"Well there's several funny things
about It" answered the cashier. "Per-
haps I shouldn't say funny cither
thcy'ro aggravating. You will notice
that this check for two cents Is drawn
on a country hank In Indiana. To get
It cashed will cost lib fifteen cents ex-
change bo there's a dl ret Ios of thlr
teen cents to start with Then the
trustee who sent It had to pay tw i
cents In mailing It nnd we are expect
cd to pay return postage on the re-
ceipt making an outlay of nineteen
cents against a credit of two cent
I've hern Juggling with figures n lony
tlmo and been up against many qiieei
propositions but tills stumps n.e. I
don't know what to do with It."
"Why not tear tho check up and
throw away the pieces? You'll hi
mn ny ahead."
'"lhe firm would jou mean Hut
wlr.t about ui)self? Unless I r.pt the
check iTishcd I'll hare to take two
cents out of m own pocket to mak
my hooks hilance and I can't see an
reason why I should use my own
money for this pTpose.

probably the most remarkable collec-

Altogether there are more than 100
prints and engravings and some origi-

"Now I rnther pride myself on my
ability to read character" said tho
man who was given to buying detec-

really a very simple tnlng requires

friend. "That man Is a butcher."
"Impossible" exc'almcd cne nmatcur

tets to open tho lands for settlement
nnd the willingness of M inesota rep
