THE AWKWARD NOT ALWAYS SIMPLE.
An Overconfident Man Bays m Little
An awkward looking man walked
somewhat timidly np to the hotel clerk
and asked if Armand Withersbeo was in
"Armand Withersbee?" replied the
hotel clerk. "Don't know him."
"Hasn't he a room here?" asked the
Not parlor D, on the second floor?"
he gasped, as he mopped his face with a
handkerchief and produced a check for
$100, payable to "Armand Withersbee,"
drawn on the Fourth National bank.
"Did he tell you he lived here?" asked
"Yes," answered the man, "and he
promised to be here at 7 p. m. sharp, to
repay me the forty dollars he borrowed
"Been lending him money, eh?"
"Why, yes; bnt he gave me good se
curity. 1 wouidnt lend money to a
man I had only known for a few hours
without good security. He gave me this
check for $100."
"How much did you lend him on it?"
"The bank was dosed and he had to
get the monev somewhere at once to
meet a pressing claim, eh?"
"Why, yes, th:it was it exactly. How
did you know it?"
"Hear of them every day," replied the
clerk, "and see 1heir victims.
"Yes, victims. You're one of them."
"You've been swindled."
"Yes, yon. You ought to know bet
ter than to lend money to casual ac
quaintances yon may make in this great
citv. You must learn to keep vour eyes
oprn and read the newspapers. It's a
pretty rank greenhorn that would be
taken m bv that old dodge.
"I'll thank yon not to call me a green
horn, sir," replied the man in an angry
tone; "I'm no fool, I can tell you. I can
read character in the face. This Mr.
Withersbee struck me as an honest man,
and I'm sure he'll come here to redeem
"Bet you he doesn't," said the clerk.
"I am not a betting man," replied the
other, "but I'm going to sit here awhile
and wait for Mr. Withersbee."
'All right." answered the clerk. "Sit
The man sat down, and kept his eyes
steadily on the door for half an hour.
Still think he's going to come, eh?"
6neered the clerk.
Yes. I ain't going to abandon mv
faith in human nature yet. He'll come."
Bet you ten dollars he don't," said
the clerk tantalizinglv.
"Well, I'll risk it," replied the man.
"Who'll hold the stakes?"
"The elevator boy." said the clerk.
Two ten dollar bills were put up, and
the man sat down to wait again. Be
fore ten minutes had elapsed a man
bustled in, went straight up to the
clerk, and threw down a card on which
was engraved "Armand Withersbee."
Has anybody been asking for me?"
he said. Then without waiting for an
answer he turned about and let his eve
fall on the man who had the check.
With an exclamation of pleasure he
saluted him, excused his lateness, pro
duced forty dollars in crisp bills, handed
them over, procured his check for f 100
and invited the lender to drink.
The clerk looked on in amazement.
while the awkward man reached for the
elevator boy, got the twenty dollars, de
clined to drink, took the arm of Mr,
Withersbee and marched out with him
As they passed out they had an inde
scribable, but unmistakable air of com
radeship about them that made the clerk
kick himself and exclaim angrily: "Done
again, by jimmy! Pals, of course! I
might have known it!" New York Trib
Shaving It Close.
"How much for a shave here?" he
asked of a Court street barber in Brook
"How much for half a shave?"
"Lend me a pencil, will you?"
Having got one, ha put the figures
down on the wall:
'I see," he said, as he returned the
pencil. "I save a cent by getting a full
shave here, instead of dividing my cus
tom between two shops. Go ahead
full shave lots of lather no talk."
