Cabinet officers are generally re- garded, as exempt from such petty annoyance as would arise from a constable; but this one was out for arrests, and, following the Secret- ary's machine, hopped on the foot- board and told the Secretary he was exceeding the speed limit by about two miles. "My- machine is a trine out of or- politely returned the Secretary, "and I am afraid It I stop I cannot get it going again." "Then I'll stick with you till yon got returned the constable, who sized up a fat fine, of which he got half. The Secretary drove on silently, not increasinir or, slackening his speed.. He spoke not a word, until he had shot across the boundary line of'the District of Columbia. Then lie turned upon the constable and be- gan. He used words Uie man had never heard before. Finally the constable realized he was In the District of Columbia, a.nd not in Maryland, where lie had some authority. Dropping to the ground, he ran as fa.-t as he could in the op- posite direction.
