A low years ago, there came to the Lion
Inn, at , a pleasant looking, great coat
ed, commercial sort of a body.
'Well, landlord, what have you got?
Rump steak, eh? oyster soup, eh? bottle of
sherry, good eh? send them up."
Dinner was served, wine was despatched
and a glass of brandy and water comfortably
settled the dinner.
"Waiter," said'the traveller, cooly and dis
passionately wiping his mouth with a napkin,
" Sir," said iho waiter, expecting a love
" I cannot pay you."
Sorry for that, sir I must call my mas
ter." ( Enter landlord.)
" ty good sir, you see this is rather awk
ward, good dinner! famous wine! glorious
grog! but no cash."
The landlord looked black.
" Pay next time often go on this road
done nothing to-day good house yours
a great deal in the bill way."
The landlord looked blank.
"No difference to you, of course! pleasant
house this plenty of business happy to
take your order-good credit good bills."
"There is my bill, sir, prompt payment, pay
as I go."
"Ah, but you must not go without paying.
Let us sec, 17s. Cd. Letus have a pint of
sherry together, make it up to a pound, that
will square it."
"Sir, I say you arc a swindler, sir, I will
have my money."
"Sir, I tell you I will call and pay you in
three weeks from this time, exactly; fori
shall have to pass this road again."
" Nono of that, sir, it won't do with me;
pay me my money, or I'll kick you out."
The stranger remonstrated, but the land
lord kicked him out.
"You will repent this," said the stranger.
The landlord did repent it. Three weeks
after that day, punctually, the stranger reen
tered the Lion Inn. The landlord looked
very foolish, the stranger smiled and held out
his hand " I've conic to pay you my score,
as I premised."
The landlord made a thousand apologies
for his rudeness. So many swindlers about
there's no knowing whom to trust. Hoping
the gentleman would pardon him.
" Never mind, landlord but come let's
have some dinner together let us be friends.
What have you got, eh? nice lit t lo ham,
of your own curing, good! greens from your
own garden ! famous bottle of sherry, and
two bottles of port; waiter, this is excellent."
Dinner passed over; the landlord bobbed
and nobbed with the stranger and they passed
quite a pleasant afternoon. The landlord re
tired to attend to his avocations, the stranger
finished his "comforter" of brandy and water
and addressed the waiter
"Waiter what is to pay?"
"Two pournds ten shillings and sixpence,
sir, including the former account."
"And half a crown for yourself."
"Makes two pounds twelve shillings and
ninepence, sir," replied the waiter, rubbing
"Say two pounds thirteen shillings," said
the stranger, with a benevolent smile, "and
call your master.
(Enter landlord smiling and hospitable,)
. "Sorry you are going so soon, sir."
The stranger merely said with a tierce look,
"1 owed you seventeen and sixpe nce three
weeks ago, and you kicked me out of your
house for it. I now owe vou two pounds
thirteen shillings. Vou must pay yourself
