    I bought one hand-bag with the determination to confine my baggage to its limit. Silently I marveled at my boldness to attempt such a feat wholly unused, as I was, to sea-voyages. When our carriage stopped I got out and gave my hand to Mme. With a newspaper spread over our laps for a table-cloth, we brought out what the basket contained and put in our time eating and chatting about my journey until the train reached London. On the one lay a piece of blank paper before an ancient ink well and a much used pen.

    He thought that his first duty was to pay his respects to the Captain in charge of the ship, so he asked some one to point the Captain out to him. Without making me miss any connections? The crowds of men on the deck dispelled my fond hope. I felt that I was taking what might be called a bird's-eye view of London. These women were more helpless than I.

    Verne, as I was altogether unable to speak to her. One bright, clever, American-born girl was traveling alone to Germany, to her parents. Bly begged her friend not give her away.

They must have felt but illy paid for their loss of sleep, for besides the men who came on board, there were only the two large English women and my own plain, uninteresting self.

Supposing one had the measles or a black eye, then a compartment in a railway carriage, made private by a tip to the porter, would be very consoling. I stifled a strong inclination to kiss her on the lips, they were so sweet and red, and show her how we do it in America.

But to her horror, she found that only confirmed her diagnosis. Suiting the action to the words, the guard pulled at a knob near a small closed window, much like a postage stamp window.

It came soon, and I disappeared at the same rate of speed as before. Pasting a slip of paper on the window, which backwards looked like "etavirP," he went out and locked the door. If we want good work from others or wish to accomplish anything ourselves, it will never do to harbor a doubt as to the result of an enterprise.

The articles were subsequently collected in Six Months in Mexico I think it is only natural for travelers to take an innocent pleasure in studying the peculiarities of their fellow companions.

Beginning at either side of the mantel they were placed in a semi-circle around the fire, which was only broken by a little table that held several tall silver candlesticks. This I can prove to you later when I come to tell of their cruel treatment of the poor things intrusted to their care.

Two months would make her a mental and physical wreck. I had thought and expected that the English passengers would hold themselves aloof from a girl who was traveling alone, but my cabin-companion saw me before I got away from the door, and came forward to ask me to join herself and friends.
