Cronin is a middle-aged man w ho has

dishwashing- is the most important and

Saturday morning' walked into the
office of District Attorney Clegg,where
he began to give orders to the janitor,
who happened just then to lie the sole
occupant. He said:
••You want to get around earlier
than this. \\ e can t have you stirring
up a dust when it istimetodo business
wit n our clients."
••What have you gfot to do with it?"
inquired tiie astonish* d janitor.
"i have got a whole lot to do witii
it. and you don't want to get sassy,
responded Mr. Cronin. "I'm Mr.
Clegg's partner, and you'll get tired if
you don’t brace up."
The janitor lied in consternation as
as he thought lie saw a crazy gleam in
tho eye of Mr. Clegg's new partner.
A little later Mr. Clegg arrived and
found Cronin sitting' in the best office
chair, with his tort on the table just
like a man with a license to practice
law. Cronin nodded politely to the
now -comer and inquired:
-What can I do for you? Mr. Clegg
isn’t in but I'm bis partner and I can
tend to your business."
•*1 think I'll come back and see Mr.
Clegg personally, as l happen to be
well acquainted with him." replied the
district attorney , sizing up his visitor.
Then he went out and directed Deputy
Marshal Wyorant to gather in Cronin
as a crazy man. which was done.
