WHERE DID THE FIRE START?
A fire occurred on premises rented by Jews in London. The circumstances were somewhat suspicious, and an agent of the insurance company with which the property was insured was sent to investigate. He interviewed the senior, and the junior partners as to the probable cause of the fire. This was his report: “I find that the senior partner thinks it was caused by an arc light on the second floor; the junior partner thinks it was caused by an incandescent light on the first floor; but my opinion is that it was caused by an Israelite in the basement.”
