Although clever iu many things, she sometimes makes some blunders in financial affairs Such was the case when she purch sed tickets for fourteen to Americus. The rule of the road is that where compa des of fifteen are carried on one ticket, or in o >e body, a rate of cents per mile is given, but when there are less than fifteen the rate is '.1% cents per mile. This the little woman couid not unders and, although cautioned by members of the troupe. She insisted on buying tickets tor fourteen, when, had she bought one ticket for the fifteen pers ms, she would have saved $1 by the operation. Reaching the car, she immediately went to work on the problem, and as the train pulled out of the depot she was seen to wave her hand at Ticket Agent Hoge, vowing oter >al veugeauce upon his head.
