Well---let's see how this solution works---but what difference does it make if I do come up with the perfect cigarette filter?
Arthur Mellon; Susan Mellon; Newspaper vendor; Stock broker
Arthur Mellon is trying to perfect the perfect cigarette filter. He applies his latest solution to some filters and then smokes 5 to test. He leaves for home feeling dizzy. He buys his usual newspaper and reads about an assassination and an oil company making a rapid rise on the stock market. The next morning he hears about the assassination but can't find the newspaper. Susan tells him he didn't bring one home. The newspaper vendor says he was off sick so couldn't have sold him the newspaper. Arthur buys shares in the oil company with all his savings and makes over $200,000 from $2083.
