The Whirligig of Life by O. Henry

JUSTICE-OF-THE-PEACE Benaja Widdup is relaxing in the afternoon when he sees the cart of Ransie and Ariela Bilbro approaching. They want a divorce. The Justice is uncertain as to whether that is within his authority or not but reasons if he can hitch people he should be able to reverse the process. Besides, there is $5 cash money on the table. That five dollar bill is a minor character in the story and the reader is advised to keep track of it.
