THE MAYSVILLE MINSTREL

" 2. The Gas Business.
The Maysville Gas Co. has eight hundred meters
The biggest consumer in town is Mrs. Arnold Peters Who owns the big house on Taylor Hill And is always giving parties come who will. Our collections amount to about $2600.00 per month
Five per cent discount if paid before the tenth of the month. Mr. Townsend the owner considers people a fool Who do not at least use gas for fuel. As for lighting he claims it beats electricity As electric storms often cut off the electricity And when you have no light at night And have to burn candles all nig~t. This is hardly right 1 A specially if you have company ~ Who will ask you what is the matter with the electricity. So patronize the Gas Company which storms do not effect And your friends will have no reason to object."

" You are cheating yourself, dear," she said. " The poem about the railroad, for instance, the way you have got it, it is nineteen lines, or nineteen dollars if they really pay a dollar a line. But it would be almost double the amount if you would fix the lines different."
" How do you mean?"
She got a pencil and piece of paper and showed him:
The Lackawanna Railroad Where does it go? It goes from Jersey City To Buffalo.
" You see," she said, " you could cut most of the lines in half and make thirty-eight dollars instead of nineteen."
But Stephen, with one eye on profit and the other on Art, could only increase the lines of " The Lackawanna " from nineteen to
thirty and those of " The Gas Business " from seventeen to twenty-one.
Three days later a special delivery came for Stephen. It said :
Dear Mr. Gale :
