A young man, whistling as he cy­cled along Queen street on Fri­day af­ter­noon (says the Auck­land Star), sud­denly be­came aware that he was the cen­tre of gen­eral at­trac­tion. He looked back to find that his way along the street was marked by a trail of bank notes, blow­ing out from his side pocket, and rep­re­sent­ing the sub­stan­tial ac­com­pa­ni­ment of his em­ployer’s de­posit slip that was on its way to the bank. It stands to the credit of Queen street that when the young man took the back­ward trail and was as­sisted by an ex­cited crowd to gather up the trea­sure, he got it all back.
