"You could buy cigars enough with this to last you some time," he said insinuatingly.
"So I could. I declare, I've a good mind to take up your offer."
"You'd better. It's a good one."
"But why don't you do it yourself?" asked Dick, with sudden wonder.
"Because father's very strict," said John glibly, "and if I should leave the house at night, he'd be sure to find it out."
