tha "confidence” man finds it more
profitable to opare la in ibb lair of
the "coma on” than He did when he
waited for the easy marks to com#

Ed Warren because Gas Smith, his
Man Kriday, believed a slick yoonf
negro when he told Gus that he was
an old acquaintance:
Ed, who needs lot* of tcnsnU for
his big fsrm routScasf of town, is
shy $#7 BO and considerable of hi*
self esteem, and Gus Is determined
that the next young negro who claims
bis friendship shall ha turned over
to the police.
The trouble came about through
Gus' gullibility. I .art week be was
walking down the road when a likely
young negro railed: “Hoy dere, unk
Gus. whar you go’m'7”
Gus didn’t teem to recollect that
be had ever seen the man before, and
he told him so. “Yes, you doea, unk
Gus,” Use fellow replied; “you know*
me—ah’ve bean to yo’ plare lot# o’
tiures; you know* mo, James Smith—
don’t yo’ ’member.”
So ingratiating was the smile and
manner and no confident did the ne
gro seem that Gus did us many a
wiser man has done. He remember
