How Was He to Know?
I had an arnful of statements which
I had Just brought dowfn from the
fifth floor. As I went Into the main
office I saw the cashier behind a desk
in the center of the office. The desk
being quite large, I had to reach over
so as not to spill the statements, and
in doing so my foot, unawares to me,
became entangled in an electric lamp
cord. As I started to walk away I
was suddenly jerked from my feet
and I fotind myself on the floor beside
the lamp. In conclusion I will say
that it didn't take ime long to vacate
the place.-Chlicago Tribune.
