' Settles the Counterfeit.
When a person comes into "Old Man"
Smith's cigar store and bands him
money In return tor sometmng pur-
cliased, the old man can ascertain by a
(single, glance or touch whether the
money is good or counterfeit. If the
money is bad, he puts it under the to
bacco cutter, or his money tester, as he
calls it, and severs it in two.
One day last week a rough looking
young man came into uis store ana
asked for a piece of chewing tobacco.
At the same time he laid a GO cent
piece lightly ou the counter. The old
man picked up the money and looked
at it It had a dull color and was not
as heavy as an ordinary half dollar.
The proprietor walked over to where
the tobacco was, and, taking down a
piece of the brand the young man had
called for, he pretended to put it under
the tobacco cutter, but Instead he slip
ped in the counterfeit piece and cut it
into halves. He then banded the two
pieces to the young man and command
ed him to "get." which he promptly
did. Chicago Record.
A'eir York la Provincial.
I'erhaps there is no city quite so pro
vincial as New York, says A. Maurice
Low in The Atlantic, due to the fact
that the average New Yorker, whether
in society or business, has got Into the
habit of patronizing the Inhabitants of
auy other city. The New York busi
ness man complacently ieeis mat tne
rest of the country is financed by New
York and must do as New York tells it.
The society man or woman of New
York believes that outside of New
York, with few exceptions, there Is no
society worthy of the name, and what
society does exist is merely a bad Imi
tation of its New York prototype. ,
