think that 13 u nu unlucky number?"
"No, Cynthia," said Colonel Calliper.
"I can't say that I do, and I don't be
lieve that any of u- would if the subject
were presented to ns in a proper light.
Now we fortunat ly are rich; we don't
need money. Lut suppose we did, and
that somebody si ould offer us $13,000.
Would we, would tnybody, my dear, de

A acvei kind of i wiudle was practiced
in a German town " he other day. A man
struggling along under a heavy burden
suddenly stumbled and crashed through
a plate glass store window. The propri
etor of the store demanded payment.
The porter said he had no money. Pass
ersby advised that he be searched. A
thousand mark no:e was found on him,
which, he said, belonged to bis employer.
The storekeeper, however, deducted 100
marks for the value of his window and
handed 900 marks change to the porter,
who went away swe Bring and protesting.
A little later the r orekeeper discovered
the thousand mark note was spurious.
