The box In which Beck enelod him
self contained also his extia clothlug
and a cheap satchel- In tho latter was
found a packago of letters addressed
to Johann Beck at No. 23 Langstrasse,

The woman's letters were written
from a hospital in Hamburg, where the
writer had undergone an operation.
They expressed hope that Beck
would secure employment, and a ref
erenco was made to a contemplated
trip to this country.
The other letters and documents
showed that Beck Is a mechanical
draughtsman and a painter. The box
iu which he began his Journey Is evi
dently one of his own construction.
It is made of light material, with
spaces between the boards sufficient
to admit air. '
The top was fastened down with
hooks on tho inside, and could be open
ed or closed by Beck at will.
There was also a small hinged door
or shutter In the bide of the box, near
tho top which nlbo fastened Inside.
Beck provisioned the box with seven
bottles of liquid coffee and chocolate
nnd some bread and sausages. Then
ho made aiiangemcnts for Its shipment,

is known as tho box traveler, and
who has made similar trips before.
