When I visited a friend in his office,
old chap, he was busy dictating a let

when your eye is hurt, but you don't
know my umbrella. This isn't mine
I borrowed It!"
Wonder if Aquila H. Dulaney is
mad or happy. Jailed at St. Louis for
forgery, he woke up to find his wife
in the next cell for bigamy. What
is the natural emotion when one is
stopped in the gentle and genteel
business of forgery, to find that the
only wife of ong's bosom has been,
meanwhile, marrying another man.
