Lost the Prize.
James Crossley, a noted English bib
liomaniac, hied him one memorable
day to a bookstall in Shudehill market
and, spying a little volume, took it up
and glanced carelessly through It.
After awhile be asked Its price from
an old woman and was told it was
two and sixpence. "i'll give you six
pence for It," said Crossley.i "Nay."
replied the poor old dame; 'it cost me
2 shillings." Whereupon our book de
rourer threw It down in disgust and
retired. A gentleman, overhearing the
altercation, stepped forward and- pur
chased it at the sum demanded. Cross
ley returned soon after and, noticing
the book had gone. anxiously inquired
what had become of it. "Sold," an
swered the woman. "for what you re
fused to give." "Tell me who bought
it. and I'll give him 10 shillings for
It!" said Crossley eagerly. The moral
is self evident.
