this point : "Is there anything you can ;
say by which the court can conclude that :
it was not a wild scheme'" 1
"I don't believe the defendant consid- J
ered it a wild scheme," said Mr. Coakley.j
"He believed if he had not been, arrested'
he would have paid dollar fo dollar and
made millions." j
United States Attorney Daniel J. Galla-,
gber, arguing for the government, urged ,
imposition of the maxiuiuna. sentence v lie ,
said : h,;. o
"It is true Mr. Ponzi did collect about
$10,000,000. It is also true that he paid
back about .SH.000.000, leaving a differ-'
ence of about $2,000,000 between what he
took and what he returned. This man is
a strange mixture of childishness ami du
plicity. In a way he committed a gov
ernment to a scheme he must have known
was fraudulent. The postal department
regards this case as the most flagrant one
of its kind, for Ponzi made the govern
ment an acquiescent observer of his
scheme.

So Dr. Jones Filled the Prescriptions
When Druggist Died.
Old Dr. Jones, who once practiced
medicine in a New Jersey town, was
known everywhere as a notoriously bad
speller. He slipped up on the simplest
words, and people wondered how he man
aged to write prescriptions, especially
in medical Latin, so that they could be
read and understood. Though the
"Doc." as he was called, could not sjh-U,
he was, nevertheless, accounted a good
physician and his patients swore bty
him. He sent his prescriptions regularly
to a certain druggist in the town be
cause this man was the only druggist
who could read them. How the druggist
succeeded in doing so it was a mystery
to every one.
Everything went well for a long time,
then one day the druggist was taken ill
and died. His funeral was largely at
tended and Dr. Jones was one of the
principal mourners. What will become
of the "Doc" now? Who will he get
t ) read his prescriptions? were questions
oi- . r-.-ry one's lips. It was pretty gen
eniy ngreed that the future looked
Muck for the physician, but this man
wIk- spe'led rheumatism "rumatiz" was
not to be discouraged. The day after
the obsequies of the druggist the follow
ing announcement, printed in longhand,
appeared in the window of the pharm
acy: "Dr. Jones has bought this drug
store. He will continue the bisness and
fill prescripshons hisse'f." New York
