Reynolds knows that every month he makes out a warrant for Bt,16&.06 and twice a year lie makes out one for M, 106.70 In that way the books Hre kept straights Not being bound by the rules of the Semite that the day be gins at noon, Mr. Reynolds is try lug to figure out whether he snouid pay the president for March i or only lor half of it mid give the other bail of the day's wages to Mr. Tuft. The Semite, even If it liked Mr. Roosevelt, which It does not, would pay him only for March II, because so far as it is concerned the outgo ing president does not serve on March 4 at all, his term ending with the lust aessloti on March 3, which day comes to uu end at BOOB of the calendar day of March 4. The treas ury cannot even take cognizance of the fact that the president who signs bills on the calendar day March 4 always dates his signature March 3.
