33. A Surprise.
A commercial traveller
quietly came up to .a stranger at
Croydon station just as the
train for Brighton was about
to start, and asked: »Are you
going by this train?» »I am.»
»Have you any luggage?»
»No.» »Well, my friend, you
might do me a favour. I have
two big trunks, and they
always make me pay extra for
one of them. You take one
for me; it will cost you nothing
— you see?» »Yes, I see; but
I haven’t any ticket?» »Why,
I thought you said you were
going by this train?» »So I am.
I’m the inspector.» »Oh!»
The extra was paid as usual.
34. Coins and Measures.
Some people think money is
a necessary evil, but all agree
that we cannot do (live)
without it.
The English coin that
corresponds to our Swedish »krona»
