A London Adventure.
In my laBt article I had lost Mrs.
Walker in London Saturday ni^ht.
She and some others had lest M?M
Mr. Baty, our Canada friend,
phoned to Miss Delp's hotel to find
ont if she had returned. She and a
few others of our party had rooms
at a hotel under same management
as and near the one in which most
of our 80 people were staying. In
some way the hotel office did not
have Miss Delp's room number and
Mr. Baty could get no information
there. About 11:30 o'clock our five
people began to try to get hack to
our hotel. One of their troubles in
rinding their way was a drunk street
car or bus conductor. After goins.?
in different directions and trying
different modes of travel, they final
ly reached Miss Del p's hotel, anil
then how were they to find out
whether she had returned in safety
or not, for they did not know the
number of her room and had not
been able to find out from tin
office? But at last they aroused some
others of our party rooming in this
hotel and found from them the
Soon after getting her seat at the
horse show, Mies Delp grew uneasy
at being separatad from her five
friends in this crowd of 10,000 peo
pie in great London, so many miles
away from her hotel, and decided
while it was early she had best
start for her hotel. She happened
not to have enough money with her
to hire a taxi, so she had to make
her way by car or motor bus. In
ellinging and trying to find the
right way, she to her dismay found
herself wandering about in what
seemed to be one of tho worst sec
tions of London. But finally ?he
found her way safely home before
her friends reached her hotel.
By a little after 1:30 Sunday
morning Miss Delp had been found
in her room. Mrs. Baty, who in
great anxiety had been walking her
room, was relieved by the return of
Mr. Baty, and I was happy again

others bringing Mrs. Walker bac'<
