to myself philosophically: Tncle Sam

bad money in particular. So he has
established a subtreasury where he ex
changes bad money for good money.'
I don't know why I thought this. I

found myself looking Into the weather

"Here is a half dollar I think Is bad.
Please give me a good one for it." I
said meekly. The clerk took the coin,
carefully placed it on a die and
brought a mallet down on It with a
resounding blow. Then he tossed the
coin hack to me and continued to

foreman of a Jury declared he would
not send a poor fellow to prison be

man's) birthday. Another jury hud
agreed upon a verdict of guilty when
the church bells began to ring. They
revised their verdict because a holi
day had begun. A burglar was allowed
to go free because the man whom he
had robbed had refused to lend him
money. This In the opinion or the Jury
was a direct incentive to crime.
