me to decide it A minute before they did so Id have bet a thousand to one that there was a double s in the word but a minute after I was not at all sure As I doubted myself I re to decide and thou one of them said H Well Ill put up 10 that there is only one s in the word 1And heres 10 that there are wo replied the other and I this gentleman will act as stakeholder until we can consult a dictionary I could riot well refuse said traveler hand I took the two and put them into my vest pocket Ten minutes later the bet was decided in favor of the double s and as I handed the two tens to the man wo had won he asked me if I could accommodate himl with four fives I did so a shoved the tens back into my pocket and thats the way I was beaten The tens were counterfeit silver certifi cates and had I
