God of Thieves!

 

Among the Romans, the deity who presided over commerce and banking was Mercury, who, by strange association, was also the god of thieves and of orators. The Romans who looked upon the merchants with contempt, fancied there was a resemblance between theft and merchandising and they easily found a figurative connection between theft and eloquence; hence thieves, merchants and orators were placed under the superintendence of the same deity.

 

 

On the Seventeenth of May, in each year, the merchants held a public festival, and walked in procession to the temple of mercury, for the purpose, the satirist said, of begging pardon of that deity for all the lying and cheating they have found it convenient to practice, in the way of business, during the preceding year.

Orange Woman

 

One time in Mexico, Carleton Beals had fallen into the habit of buying two oranges from an orange woman near his house. One day, when he was planning to give a party, he undertook to buy her entire stock of four dozen oranges.

 

Severely she said, “Here are your two”, and handed him his usual purchase.

 

“But this time I want to buy all the rest of them”.

 

“Why”, she said outraged, “you can’t; what do you think I would do all the rest of the day with no oranges to sell!”

Socialism is 16 cents each!

 

Andrew Carnegie was once visited by a socialist who preached to him eloquently the injustice of one man possessing so much money. He preached a more equitable distribution of wealth. Carnegie cut the matter short by asking his secretary for a generalised statement of his many possessions and holdings, at the same time looking up the figures on world population in his almanac he figured for a moment on his desk pad and then instructed his secretary,

“Give this gentleman 16 cents. That is his share of my wealth.
