"Because," tho Janitor replied, "you
are tho only folks that novor lose any

"Don't worry," said her husband.
Of courso ho can't find it. but It will
do him good to stew around a little."
About 15 minutes later Brown was
summoned to tho dumbwaiter.
"Here's your milk," said tho Janitor.
I'm sorry 1 made a mistake."
Brown was bewildered. "Now,
whero on earth did tho fellow get it?"
He has taken it from ono of the
neighbors," wailed Mrs. Brown.
Next day Brown complained of tho
loss of a Dackage of sugar, which.
though purely Imaginary, so far as the
Browns were concerned, very soon
materialized in the bonds of tho re
sourceful Janitor. Even Brown got
uneasy then; but, being bent on ven
geance, he subsequently reported as
lost bread, a head of lettuce, and a
bag of potatoes, all of which wero im-
mediately produced by tho Janitor.
