Man With Many Titles
John Caulfield, of St. Paul, Minn., who erstwhile and for some forty-odd years had the lone title of secretary of the water board, now has three or four titles in lieu of the one the board permitted him to drop. In fact. John now has so many titles that the stenographers get mixed up about it occasionally. Just the other day in his capacity of “clerk to the board.” John dictated a letter to one of the stenographers which was to he duplicated to all the officers of the department. An hour or so later the letters were duly placed on John’s desk for his signature. He signed them all, when lo! he found that he had attached his signature to one addressed in the stenographer’s neatest hand to “John Caulfield. General Adviser.” “Guess we can save postage on this one.” said John to the stenographer as he handed her the others to be mailed. And then he looked through the. bunch again iust to see if he hadn’t missed another letter addressed to himself as “purchasing agent.” but the steno apparently hadn’t been advised as to this title of John’s.—Exchange.
