Dnce' upon a- time the "confidence
games" of the world met to organize
an association for mutual improve
ment, and the gathering was one of
the largest ever known. The interest
manifested was intense, and the meet
ing promised to be a great success.
But, trouble arose over the selection
of a presiding officer. Every "game"
present, claimed the honor.. The
wrangling proceeded for many weary
hour's; and there seemed to be -great
danger that the proposed organization
-would fail through lack of harmony.
Finally, after nearly every "game"
present had presented its claims to
recognition, an unusually large one
appeared on. the, scene.
"Cease ' this wrangling, friends," it
said.,. ."I have hut to announce who 1,
am in order to settle this contro-;
versy. The mere mention of my name
will convince you that I am entitled to
be '-It' in this august .assemhly."
"W.oll, fwho are you?" queried an
unusually large "game."
