Do you have a Linwood Street memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

Take the Cash and Let the Credit Go

To the Editor:

Sir-The Treasury recently released a story to the effect that, if all the money in circulation were divided equally, every person would have $50.38. For some reason the Treasury failed to add that if the national debt were divided the same way, every person would owe $285. 

Put in one column what is taken in, and in the other column what is paid out. That is all there is to bookkeeping..

To the Editor: .

Sir-I have lost a little brown haired dog which I would like to have back if anyone has found it. I have three children and they are crying for it. She was their pet. The dog was lost around Ninth and Elm Streets. It is a long-haired dog. It is between a Spitz and a Pomeranian. The dog is a female and answers to the name of Peggy.

'INDIAN GIVER' JAILED ON WOMAN'S COMPLAINT

A man termed an "Indian Giver" by Judge Pancoast was sentenced to the county jail for 30 days on charges of stealing $7.50 from a former boarding house proprietress. 

John Dyskstra, 33, of 1012 South Twelfth street, Philadelphia, was arrested on complaint of Mrs. Elizabeth Perpetuyno of 634 Linwood street. Mrs. Perpetuyno, testified that Dykstra came to her home Tuesday night and stole the money from an envelope. 

Dyskstra admitted taking the money but said it belonged to him because he gave it to Mrs. Perpetuyno in payment of a board bill. 

"You're just an Indian Giver," the court said. "If you owed this woman the money you have no right to take it back."
