After dinner with a particularly
gracious Yankee friend, old chap, I
made overtures to summon the
waiter in order to inquire as to the
amount of our bill. But in a flash, as
it were, he produced a prodigous bun
dle of money andv protested against
my paying the bill in these emphatic
words:
"Nix, nix! Bury that mazuma!
When you're with me, Ballyrot, your
dough is strictly phoney. Here,
waiter, nab this frog-tinted ten caser
and make it cover the damage for
myself and this solemn-looking simp.
Toddle along, waiter, and' chew off
the change for your wife and kiddies.
Not a chirp, Ballyrot. This is my
splurge. 'I'm the guy that put the
buy in southern hospitality, and some
day when I roam over to your foggy
burg you can get back at me- with a
glad-hand wallop."
My word! " "
