BRIGHT SIDE TO BUSINESS.
Occasional Flash of Humor Enlivens

It Is supposed that business .etters
are deficient In humor. Still there
have been exceptions, and the latest,
sent by a member of tho well-known
wholesale soap-making firm of (let us
say) Cake & Son, Is one of tho most
brilliant. A retail dealer in a small
way had sent, for a consignment of
their goods: "Gentlemen (he writes)
"wherefor you havo not sent mo tho
nope? Is it bekawse you think my
money Is not so good os nobody elses?

you not sent the sope? Flense send

that the sooner we forbid theai

THE WRONG MR. WRIGHT.
Out He Turned Cut to Be not So Very
Wrong, After All.
The story of Commissioner J.

Is the old story of the wrong Mr.
Wright, According to (he story,
Wright was llrst apprised of his ap
pointment by official advice from
Washington. He had not been an ap
plicatit for favors and hence the com
mission was a ureal surprise to him.
However, he Immediately departed for
the Dakota agency, to which he had
been appointed, and immediately as
sumed control. Some six months later
a federal Inspector visited the agency,
and seeing Wright In the agent's of
fice, inquired If Mr. Wright were In.
"Yes, sir." replied the young agent;
"1 am Mr. Wright
"Not J. (leorge Wright?" further
queried the Inspector.
Wright Insisted on his Identity and
the dumfounded Inspector was forced
to admit the evidence of his eyes and
cars, although ho was expecting to In
terview an elderly man. The inspec
tion, however, proved so satisfactory
that, despite the fact that, the ap
pointment was intended for Wright's
father, whose initials the department
had confused with his son's, the
young agent was retained In the crv
