to a lady friend in the train when it be

stepped off, and must have struck some

and sprained his foot severely, so much
so, that he was brought home and is
now confined to his bed, and will be

tisappointment to the young man as he
is one of the most ambitious and suc
cessful salesman on the road, and he
was right, in the midst of a fine business.
