One evening that I took ten with an
intimate friend of mine, while we were
seated at the table, Mr. Baker, my friend's
husband, while absently feeling in hia
vest pocket, found a five dollar note which
he had no recollection of putting there.
"Halloa I" he exclaimed "that is no
place for yon. J should have pot it in
my pocket-book. Here, wife, don't you
want some ready money r and he threw
the note across the table to her.
"Many thanks," she replied ; " money

present use for it. She folded the note
and pat it under the edge of the ten tray,
