Encouraged by this suc cess, he kept It up during the next quarter. When the man came to col lect the amount due, Oharlie happen ed to be at home. The gasman had a look at the dial, and then he scratched his head. 'Is there something uip ?" asked Charlie, beillning to feel nervous. "I should think there is," replied the gesman, "the blessed gas com plny owes you half a crown."
