  1. I dropt into the post-office this morning for my mail and just inside the door I found a little boy crying very bitterly. Naturally I asked him the cause of his trouble, and lifting his tear-stained face to mine he said: I had two quarters, and a feller come along just now and took one away from me." What." said I "right here in the post-office." Yes, sir." Well, why didn't you tell some one." I did; I hollered, 'Help. help;" (said very weakly) Well," I said, "is that as loud as you can holler. Yes, sir." So I took the other quarter.
