Story of the Man Who Wanted to
Open a Small Account.
A WALL STREET EXPERIENCE
The Would Be Depositor of Modest
Means Found Himself In a Place For
Millionaires—An Official's Courteous
Explanation and Advice.
“When,” said the man who writes
pieces for magazines and things, “by
some strange and unprecedented chance,
I had got hold of a matter of $350 all
at one and the same time it looked big
to me. By an even more curious
chance there wasn’t anything that I
ready needed to do with the money, so
I decided that I'd bank it.
“Now, I knew in a general way that
in order to put money in a bank you've
got to be known and give your pedi
gree and look respectable, and all that,
and I hated to approach a bank with
out any sort of credentials. Therefore
I went to the business manager of a
certain magazine which occasionally
priiits pieces that I write and asked
him what I'd better do.
“‘Simplest thing in the world,’ said
he. Til give you a note to our batik.'
"That sounded fine to me. lie wrote
me the note, and I started for the bank
a good deal tickled over how easy the
little depositing proceeding had been
“The bank to which I had the note is
in Wall street. I asked the uniformed
man who was standing around where
I’d find the receiving teller's window,
and he pointed that window out to me.
I got into line and watched the teller
take in money.
“I must own that I was a bit stalled
to note the great size of some of the
deposits he was receiving. Why, fel
lows were giving the money to him by
the satchelful. But I had my note in
my pocket, and 1 remained complacent
enough with that consciousness,
“When I reached the receiving teller

teller, a decidedly civil young man.
opened it and read it. Then he looked
at me, after which he read the note
again, this time with a sort of puzzled
expression on his countenance. 1 didn’t
see why the receiving teller should be
puzzled over such a simple matter, but
puzzled he seemed. He rang a bell,
and the uniformed man wbo’d directed
me to that window appeared.
“ ‘Show' this gentleman to the office
of the cashier,’ said the receiving teller
to the uniformed man, at the same
time regarding me with a pleasant
smile, and the uniformed man led me
down the passageway and took me
behind a railing where there was a
handsome gray haired gentleman sit
ting at a desk.
“The handsome gray haired gentle
man received me cordially and invited
me to be seated. 1 handed him my
note, which the receiving teller had
returned to me. and he leaned back in
his chair and read it carefully. Then
he. too, looked puzzled after he’d read
the note a.second time. Then he look

"Well, that was a civil enough ques

months, and probably I shall carry a
