FRIDAY, APRIL ' 23, 188C.
"Tlmt'B the tenth one this ore
noon," said a Woodward-avenue
floor-walker the other day, as a
woman hurriedly passed out.
"What tenth woman?"
"No; tenth portemonnaie."
"What do you mean?"
"Well, this house bought a job
lot of portemonnaies la9t spring, and
we got 'em so cheap that we. could
almost give them away. A few
days ago I took it into my head to
see how many of our customers were
honest, and I stuffed a porteraon
naie with paper and loft it on the
silk counter. It was slyly pocKCieu
by the very first lady who discovered
it, and she is the wife of a man
"And the next?"
"Well, wo lose an average of
twenty portemonnaies a day. That
means wo have twenty ladies come
in hero who are thieves, for it is
' theft to gobble up lost or mislaid
property without saying anything
"It must be interesting to watch
"It is. Now and then a woman
will observe the article and hand it
over to the clerk, hut that is an ex
ception. I have seen a woman work
for half an hour to get the poitc
jnonnaie into her pocket or shopping-bag.
But that isn't where the
fun comes in."
"Where is it?"
"Why, on a slip of paper stuffed
into the little wallet I wiite: 'Stolen
from the counter of & Co.'
At least one-half the wallets are re
turned. There comes a lady now."
She was a well-dressed and ics
pectable looking lady. She had a
portemonnaio in her hand ami a
smile on her face, and as she came
near she sweetly said :
"Beg pardon, but in trading here
this morning I accidentally picked
up this purse in some way. I pre
sume it contains money. I have
not even opened it. Please tell the
loser that it was all a mistake and I
am sorry if I have put her to
"Very well, ma'am."
"That was well done," said the
"Yes, fairly well, but it's the
story they all tell. She opened the
portcmounaic, saw the put-up job
and tries to play off innocence in
returning it. Wc arc all honest,
you know, but nevertheless a lost
wallet will tempt human nature
sooner than any other bait I know
of." Detroit Free Press.
