HENPECK DISCOVERED.
A stout lady entered a well
filled street car with her diminu
tive husband. They sat down side
by side and she'promptly moved
over on top of him to give room
for another passenger.
"Maria," came from some
where underneath, "will you
please pay the fare? 1 can't reach
for my pocket."
As the conductor approached
the following dialogue took place:
"Fares, please."
"Two," said Maria, handing
over a dime'
"One?-', he questioned as his
eyes searched the seat.
"Two,' disdainfully.
"Madame,N I can only accept
fare for one. Your size has noth
ing to do with it."
"Sir! would you insult a Jady?"
"Never, madam. But Where's
the passenger you wish to pay
for?"
Maria gave over an inch or two'
and glared at the man in the uni
form. "She's sitting on him," a pas
senger volunteered.
"It probably isn't . the first
time," mumbled the conductor
ashe gave the register a violent
ring. Maria's husband came up
suddenly for breath, but sank
with the next lurch of. the car.
