NECESSARY CAUTION.

Merchant ( to Clerk who is being carpeted ) : It has come to my ears, Grigsby, that you were a workhouse waif and have never known your parents. - Girgsby : Yes, sir ; but I hope you will find me no worse of that while I do my duty, etc., etc., ending, "and I did think, sir, that you are no the sort of gentlemen who would delight in reminding me of the fact." - Merchant : Oh, no, it's all right, Grigsby, but I may have to remind you of it if you want any more days off to bury relatives in the country.
