women who wpro exceedingly anxious that
his trip should bo a safe; one and bet v. eon
sobs they offered all sorts of suggestions.
"Good bye, Dan; go straight to tho ship
when you get to Philadelphia," "I will."
Then another anxious woman dropped her
apron and fald,"Don't stop any place.Dan,
but go straight to the ship." Tho laconic
answer was "I will." Then a thud cried,
beseechingly, "Danl" 'That?" asked the
old man. '"Go straight to tho ship." "1

the fingers went into the vest
pockets, the hands went down into
the pockets of the pants, csmo out again
and wandered over the breast p.ickots of

the old man's face as ho turned to tho other
passengers and seemed to ask, "Havo you

pocketbook or some other valuablo thing.
The passengers woro beginnlngto got as un
easy at tho old man, when the latter leaned
forward and looked under tho soat. As ho
resumed an orect position a smile was be
