    The Milkmaid and her Bucket

A SENATOR was dreaming as follows:

 "With the money which I shall get for my vote in favour of the bill to subsidies cat-ranches, I can buy a kit of burglar's tools and open a bank. The profit of that enterprise will enable me to obtain a long, low, black schooner, raise a death's-head flag and engage in commerce on the high seas. From my gains in that business I can pay for the Presidency, which at $50,000 $ a year will give me in four years - "

 but it took him so long to make the calculation that the bill to subsidies cat-ranches passed without his vote, and he was compelled to return to his constituents an honest man, tormented with a clean conscience.
