            A young matron, shopping, asked a butcher the -price of hamburger steak.

            “Seventy-nine cents a pound,” he replied.

            “But at the corner store it is only fifty cents,” said the customer.

            “Well, why didn’t you buy it there?”

“Because they haven’t any.”

            “Oh, I see,” said the butcher.  “When I don’t have it I sell it for forty cents a pound.”
