Birsky nodded sadly.

that it should be a suspended sentence

"The wholesaler wouldn't miss it if

me, Zapp, for every child that lays
awake the night before Christmas

to hand him the next morning, there is
u fifty manufacturers counting sheep
jumping over fences, trying not to
think what some of their customers In
the retail drygoods trade is going to

ary. It don't require much water to p
drown a shaky drygoods retailer. He a
can sink like a stone In two days' rain c

"Don't I know it?" Zapp said. "If o

salers give 'by mistake to shaky retail
drygoods men was put on trees the
way other Christmas presents are, they
would cover all the redwood groves in

the following year Immergllick cut out

his luck he didn't also buy stock in

in November the thermometer goes
down to zero on him and stays that

millinery opening. Can you blame such
a feller that he settles with his cred

"Listen, Zapp," Birsky said, "a 30

pin his bust-up on either a warm

wife, whereas the fgares show that
