inquiry as to what he was doing
asleep, he said:
"I'll tell you how it was boss.
I have only been with the company
a short time and before coming here
I was working on such and such a
railroad. The fine was so rough
I could not gel any sleep. Since !
have been working for the St. Paul
the road has been so smooth that I
just could not keep awake."

negro had violated the rules, he was
premitted to keep his job on ac
count of bis wit.
