"Rio is the easiest city in the world to get credit in," said a New Orleans man who lived for awhile at the Bra killan capital, "bat If the worst place In the world in which to dodge a debt. All business there is done on the semi annual account system, and you can get anything you want and have It charged without difficulty, but the end of every six months is settlement day, and If you are not on hand with the cash—well, I'll give you a little experi ence of my own to show you what hap pens. "I went to the city as the representa tive of a well known American house, and at the outset I was surprised to find that it was practically impossible "for me to pay for anything. 'Don't bother about that, senhor,' the store keeper would say. 'I will make an ac count of It' Of course my American friends soon explained the system to me, and, while I didn't like it, I thought best to conform to the custom of the country without rendering myself dis agreeable by kicking. "About two months after my arrival I went to a native shoemaker's one day, ordered a pair of English riding boots, and, as I had been used to wear ing ready made footgear, I mentioned. Incidentally, that my number was 8%. The shoemaker gravely made a note of the fact and promised to send around the hoots as soon as they were done, Several weeks elapsed, when, one morn ing, a porter cable staggering Into the office almost buried under an enor mous load of English top boots. To be exact, he had 17. I was thunderstruck, but as he could give me no explanation except that they were mine I rushed immediately to the shop, where the proprietor received me blandly and in sisted that he had merely sent what I had ordered. 'You said that you de sired them to the number of eight and a half,' he added, "and I accordingly made you eight pairs and one boot, a right, which, If you desire, I will ex change for a left.' 'But, good heavens,' I protested, *you ought to have known there was some mistake! Why on earth should I order half a pair of boots? He shrugged bis shoulders. That was not for me to inquire,' he said. "I realized that the fatal reputation for eccentricity which Americans en Joy the world over was partly respon sible for the muddle. Still It was an Inexcusably stupid blunder, and, after vainly arguing for an hour, I put him on notice that I would only accept one pair. When I returned, I sent back the other 15 and considered the Incident closed. 1 beard no more about it, in fact, until exactly six months' later, when 1 received a bill for 8% pairs of riding boots at $15 each—total, $127.50 gold—and a polite notification that 7% pairs awaited my pleasure at the shop. "That made me furious. I sent the man my check for $15 and told his messenger to sue me and be hanged. But be didn't sue me. Tliey have a much more effective method down there. "Within a week every tradesman with whom I did business advised me courteously- that he had closed my ac count—meaning that my future cus tom was not desired. Moreover, the foreign colony all gave me the cold shoulder, and when I dropped in at the club the frost was something awful. "At last I sent for a particular friend. •Look here,' I said, 'I want you to tell me frankly why I am getting this ta boo.' 'Because you haven't paid for your boots.' he replied. 'But this is monstrous!' said I. 'You know very well that I never ordered 8y% pairs of boots. 'Of course not,' said he, 'but you'd best pay for 'em all the same. It ruins a man here,' he went on to ex plain. 'if he allows any bill to pass set tlement day. No explanation is per mitted, and everybody joins in cutting him. It seems bard, but we have to do It to sustain this credit system. If we didn't, we'd all be ruined by bad ac counts.' "I groaned in spirit, but I sent the shoemaker $112.60 and told him to let me have the rest of my boots. I was so mad I could have worn out the whole 17 on bis anatomy, but I pre served my outward calm and was promptly reinstated socially and finan cially throughout the town. Later on I used seven pairs of boots as Christ mas presents to friends and gave the one odd one* to a one legged beggar on the plaza."—New Orleans Times Democrat. Cnappreelated Efforts.
