A Poser

A Poser.

This is a Chicago yarn, from the Union Printer. Harry, a Herald comp, is hard of hearing, and uses a pencil for his communications. The other day he handed his mate Jim a slip bearing the words, « Can you tell me where I can get a good drink of whisky for ten cents? » Jim (an authority on the subject), notes down the address of a saloon hard by. The slip is handed back with a second question: « Good. Now can you tell me where I can get the ten cents? » The rest was silence.
