A train traveling through the West was held up by masked bandits. Two friends, who were on their way to California, were among the passengers.
"Here's where we lose all our money," one said, as a robber entered the car.
"You don't think they'll take everything, do you?" the other asked nervously.
"Certainly," the first replied. "These fellows never miss anything."
"That will be terrible," the second friend said. "Are you quite sure they won't leave us any money?" he persisted.
"Of course," was the reply. "Why do you ask?"
The other was silent for a minute. Then, taking a fifty-dollar note from his pocket, he handed it to his friend.
"What is this for?" the first asked, taking the money.
"That's the fifty dollars I owe you," the other answered. "Now we're square." - W. Dayton Wegefarth.
