She evidently thonght Mr. Lansky an easy mark, and she tried to induce him to take some larger sized bottles. That is where she made her mistake. He incidentally picked one of the numerous paekages up. The bottles were ineased in a tin box. He noticed that the one he had selected was rusty, and opened it up. IX contained nothing but dark colored water. Then he demanded his money back. "You have bought the goods and I have your money and will keep it," she said. Mr. Lansky threatened to cali a policeman.
