What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

16 THE MONMAL concealed the laces. Officer: H’ m. Look here; the man who made the affidavit is out there on the box and I’ll call him in. Enter the driver. Officer: You’re sure Mrs. Carmody specifically stated that . there was no duties paid on this lace? Driver: Yis sorr. This lady here ast her did she pay any duties on it at all and she says, ’Not wan cint, ’ says she. ‘We de­ clared everything else to the smallest detale, ’ says she, just like that, but the laces seemed to’ve been—overlooked. Officer: There seems to be some confusion here still. But I guess you’ re all right. I haven’ t made any arrest yet here,—and I won’t. Good afternoon. Exit driver and officer. SCENE 2. Carmody and Lucy alone Lucia: You might have told me, dearest. Carmody, indulgently: What good would it have done? I ’d said my say on the subject—pretty definitely, I thought—and when, the second day out, I found the lace,—why—I’m not wholly with­ out a sense of humor, dearie, so I held my peace. But just the same, even if you don’ t respect law as law, you see how dangerous it is to trifle with. \ Lucia: Oh, I don’ t know. After all what did it amount to? It was all fireworks. Nothing really happened. (Carmody gives one astonished stare, then flops into a chair with a loud laugh). Curtain.
