But why in all bookkeeping systems, from banks to the smallest retail shop, is it invariably the •customer who gets cheated if anybody? Tell ton, ye winged winds, which o'er my pathway roll! It is useless to contradict and say that it isn't. Tho one exception in a thousand years does not count against the millions of oppos- 1 ing instances. I have lately read the pathetio account by some recluse, who never: goea shopping, of the bloodthirsty monsters who take* more change than is due them and stalk out, leaving no address behind them, little recking tho sufferings of the poorly paid employee who has to make good the deficit out of his or her own pocket. Fudge 1 No such mistakes occur, or, if they do, they aro rarer than fresh vegetables on a country table. In all largo establishments there is a hawk headed Horus at tho "desk" waiting to pounce on a mistake in tho customer's favor of 1 cent, and rnany's tho time ovciy ouo of us can testify tho little slips have been returned to bo corrected of mistakes to our credit, while we fumed. Thank goodness, there are instances in which tho sharpshooters have wounded themselves. Once I was on a "sound 1 ' boat going from Now York to Fall River, and tho man at the desk gave me a $5 bill too much iu change when paying after supper. There was something of a crowd, but that mistake would havo made itself evident to mo in a mob. I dashed back and said, "You've made a- mistake iu my change." "Can't help that," Raid the lordly clerk. '' We never rectify mistakes here.'' "Oh, you don't?" retorted the head of the party. "Well, it will cost you something this timo, for you havo given us $5 too much. But if you never rectify mistakes yon aro tho loser for once.'' It is foolish to dwell on tho sequel, and I havo forgotten it. I only remeni- ber that tho young man, palo and agitated, danced in supplication around tho unmoved figxiro of the stern admouisher for some minutea. I suppose ho got his money, and I daro say there was no law upholding ouo in keeping it, but I hope, at this distance of timo, lie didn't. One day, not long ago, I was at a furnishing "shop in State street, Chicago, buying a tio. The price was $1.60, and I presented the man with a $2 bill. He swung over the little birdcage on a telegraph lino and it came swiftly back with a CO cent piece. . Seeing another tie for that price, I handed back the change and was fibout to leave, when a voice came from the elevated desk at the other end: "Hi! This half dollar is counterfeit!" Although it was a ' public. place and I am a retiring lady, I burst wildly forth into a clarion shout of joy. It is so seldom a modest customer has the chance of beholding a natural enemy caught with his own quicklime. The mortification of the salesman eeryiug me was something to see. It did me good for a whole day. Sending a counterfeit half dollar cheerfully and with promptitude in change and repudiating it 'on its return tho next minute 1 It was a sharp game aud a little too sharp. Everybody who shops much knows that it is next to impossible to get a "returned" article credited, or, indeed, for.
