In a hoy to get It changed. In a few min
utes the boy returned and handed Trifle
mail one dollar lu change, nud the latter,
taking nut twenty-thru cents for the three
cigars, handed Adams ihe remainder, seventy-live
cents. Adams declared it was
n two-dollar bill lie had given Teichmaii
nnd refused to receive tho seventy-live
cents. Telchman, who bad not
scrutinized the hill ery closely,
wns not positive In his own mind whether
It was a one or two dollar hill, nnd sent
the hoy back to Charlie Frank at Gates'

mado iu making change. Charlie, to
make sum of it, examined the drawer
which he found did not contain n two
dollar bill. The hoy returned and told
Telelimau the cliange was rigid It was a
one dollar hill. Adams demanded change
for two dollars, and Tcichmau rclused to
