You may havo been a passenger on a

up a coin off the cushion or from tho
straw, and anxiously inquired for an
ovtner. At such a time every man in
stinctively feels in his pockets. Every
man feels liko saying that ho is tho lucky
party, but an Inward voice somehow
restfnins him. The mouoy is invariably
pocketed by tho Under, and ho Is set
down, in the opinion of his fellow pas
sengers, ns contemptible and mean.
On a South Boston car a young man
pin posely dropped a silver pleco on tho
