The American naturally supposes. for
example, thal h service advertleed as
the Calais-Puris-stimplon Fxpress from
London to VenKe is really an expreas
service. But he will lind that thla ?

With fre.iuent stops.
Whether there is on 8tiv of the BW-M
roada or State iUltwaya In Italy B real
express traln I do not know anv more
! than 1 know whether the traveller'a
luggage ls habltually held up at a June*
tlon, even tbOUgb registcred. as twice
I happaned to mlne, Bral between venu-e
and B. VltO and then between B VltO
BBd Yenhe. In the latter caae there
I may be a reason. sime Itahan travel
aeonu tO be organlzed on trade-union
: principles with :i vlew to provldlng
Iworh and wnges for everybody. Wbea
I waa laat ln Ng*g Vork tbe Pennsyl?

nor was it. in my expeneme. BCtUBlly

ia ns do not glve themselves away bv
? warnlng beforehand. They Just
take your bnggage, gtvg you a raCOlpt
for it. and doHver il when most OOB*
vanlanl to themselves. Tbe delav is tbe
leaa excuaable since no baggage is car
ried free, but you pay a tixed tarrf of
three cents for every pound.
The delay. moreovor, offer- .iti extra

1 quote from memoiy. but this is tho
Bubeteace and ataanlng of the notice.
I stayed at two dlfferent hotels during
my rer-ttiit visita to Venlce, and the no?
tice was the same in both. ln one of
them a friend had been robbed of ,*iOO
franes. He notifled the manager at
once and was told the matter would
be itniuirefl Into. He then lald before
the manager a full atatement. He had
drawn from a Venlce Imnk flfteen
banknotes of T\? franes each. Four of
tho flfteen had been pgid to the cashler
of the hotel; a flfth had l>een spen*
elsewhere; the remainlng ten had been
stolen from his bedroom. If hls state?
ment were not true he had glven the
manager the means of provlng it un
true ln essentlal partlcttlare. Tha man?
ager does not appear to have ques
tloned Its truth. Wor did he decllne to
pgy, He simpl did not pay. The In
(ident occurred last September. My
friend Is a man whose word WOttld be
taken for any amount a man well
known in London, where he lives.
After some weeks delay he pat the
matter in ihe hands of the Brltlsh ("on
sul. The hotel then offered to pay half.
This was declined and there the mat?
ter resterl when I laat heard of it My
friend was still *|100 OUl of pocket, and
My i ase was of leaa importenee. In
that the amount was less Three or
four llttle thlngs were stolen whlch I
valued modestly at .'!<> france, end asked
for the payment of that sum bv letter
from Paris. The manager replled ln a
tone of clvllity, expreaslng hls regret
that the thlngs could not he found. and
his .onvi.'tlon that 1 had mislald them
somewhure and hls hope they would
turn up. but altOgOther iKtiorinK the n

-ay that complainta about defects or
