Saved by honest onlookers


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.
