second day he took physical culture
On the third day he could stand the
strain no longer and went down to the
dining room and ordered the best meal
the boat could afford. While tucking
It under bis belt he conjured up In his
minds eye a picture of a cell In the
bastfle In San Francisco.

the waiter, "How much do I owe you?"
"Nothing," replied the waiter; "your
meals are Included In your ticket"
