The dispute about this bet was peculiar, beca'use both parties to'the bet Insisted that had lost, and both sen-t cheques to each oilier, as if the days of chivalry had returned. And the arbiter to whom they submitted their dispute didn't have -to put his judgment .into rhyme. He actually did it voluntarily.
