I bought a ticket last summer on
one of the busiest steamboat lines ;
running out of New York, where the
flat was "No whole stateroom to any
one passenger," and finding a suitcase
already on the lower berth I placed
ray own obligingly in the upper. When
1 turned in that night my companion
was still absent, but along toward
morning, when 1 finally awoke, there
was a bloody jackknife on the floor
and the window was open. Just what
had happened we never found out. I
told my tale to the purser and gave
him the "exhibits," but who uiy state-
room companion was, except for the
name on the boat's register, 1 have
never known, nor do 1 know what be-
came of him. •
In a Connecticut town one night 1
met a stranger in the hotel lavatory.
"What have you lost, my friend?" I
asked, as 1 saw him searching for
"I'm looking for tlie tooth-
brush," he answered without hesi-
tancy. "1 have found the house brush
and comb, but where the is the
One day I was busy with a cus-
tomer right up to train time, and j
asked an enterprising bell boy to run
up to my room and pack up my be-
longings. "Put in everything In the
room!" 1 called after him cautiously.
When 1 opened my bag in another i
town I found he had obeyed me. The
Bible belonging to the hotel was rolled
up in my pajamas.
One night 1 left a call to be awak-
ened at seven the next morning. It
was the only train leaving in the fore-
noon, and I simply had to take It. Of
course I ordered breakfast and I was
down on the minute. When I reached
the dining room another drummer was
just finishing my breakfast, and there
was not a minute in which to cook an-

she became aware of the error.
In the prohibition state of Vermont
I have had some amusing experi-
ences. Stopping at a hotel for din
ner, 1 asked for some vichy. They
did not have it, so 1 changed It for
ginger ale or apollinaris.
"Nothing doing in soft drinks, boss,"
said the waiter placidly. "But if you
want beer or whisky I think 1 can
fix it!"
in another prohibition hotel I asked
quietly for whisky, it was served In
place of tea, and I drank it from a

When Coffee Shows What It Has Been

witli me," writes a matron from Rome,
N. Y.
"Its lightest punishment being to
make me 'logy' and dizzy, and it seem-
ed to thicken up my blood.
"The heaviest was when it upset my
stomach completely, destroying my ap-
petite and making me nervous and ir-
ritable, and sent me to my bed. After
one of these attacks, in which I nearly
lost my life, I concluded to quit the
coffee and try Postum.
"It went right to the spot! I found
it not only a most palatable and re-
freshing beverage, but a food as well.

dizziness, the unsatisfactory condition
of my blood, my nervousness and irri-
tability disappeared in short order
and my sorely afflicted stomach began
quickly to recover. I began to^rebuild

children followed siiently in view of
tlie look on his face. He had sold
Sadie for $15, and had been glad to
get it. The driver, alarmed, called
after him.
"Say, mister!" he shouted, "maybe
we can trade. What'll you give me
for her?" The father turned.
I owned that horse once," he said
in a tone that made the driver gasp,
he had looked so mild. "1 sold her
for $15, and she was worth ten. I'll
give you $25 for her, spot cash. Take
it or leave it."

The Texas Armadillo.
During the last three years Drs.
Newman aud Patterson of the school
of zoology at the University of Texas
have been much interested in working
out certain points concerning the bi-
ology of the armadillo, probably the
most unique animal in Texas. rl his
little creature represents a migrating
species which has in large numbers
crossed the lrontier of lexas from
Mexico and now inhabits the greater
portion of the southern half of the
The point of special interest in the
biology of the armadillo lies in Its pe-
culiar method of development. Drs
Newman and Patterson have found
out that the Texas armadillo normally
gives birth to four young and that
the individuals of any given litter are
invariably of the same sex; that is
they are either all males or all fe
males, never mixed.
