FIFTEEN CENT LUNCH BILL.
An Echo or a Rock Islander's Recent
v Vacation Trip.
Upon returning from a vacation
trip a prominent young Rock Island
man was called into the private ofiice
of his father and asked to explain
himself for having a 15-cent lunch
bill sent home for collection. It bore
date of the day of his departure for
the north and wa9 from a merchant
in a small town. The father sug
gested that his son must have set a
speedy pace if he succeeded in going
through bis wad of long green in such
a short time. After thinking the
matter over the young man recalled
that he ordered a lunch at a town up
the road, but had failed to pay for it.
He also remembered that there were
several of his friends (traveling sales
men) present at the counter, and he
learned, upon investigation, that it
was they who put the merchant up to
sending a statement to his father for
collection. The amount was remitted
upon demand by the father, who had
a receipt for the same to show his son
on his return. -
