The Tallr Stick.
) An old time .way of proving one's
right to the payment of money loaned
was by tally sticks. A plain stick was
os&rt, and when a man loaned a sum a
stick Vas broken, and the creditor and
debtor .each took a part When the
lime for payment came the man who
had i. the ..stick which fitted exactly to
the stick -held by the creditor received
the* money; *^Two sticks never break
la exactly .Uio same shape, so there
was r never, any dispute about who had
a right to tile -money.
