only a young t tan, caroless, generous, jovial,

weather had rot cold, raw and stormy. He
didn't care, uid reortod just as ho was.

much merriment, and tho operators guyed

" 'Well, lot that new fellow try him, any

sat down, an i for four hours and a half wrote
out messages in a clear round hand, stuck a
date and number on them, and threw them on

One little fellow, however, was a little slow,

pennies by way of Illustration, she said:

Eliot Duun gave The Breeze the details of
quite an amusing incident that happeued on
board the ti am while on his way to Atlauta.
Shortly after the train pulled out of Bruns
wick he noticed a Suvuuntih man on board
with an unusually happy smile on his face.
The man seemed wrap;ed in silent medita
tion on boino pleasing subject, as he would
occasionally chuckle to himself, and Mr.
Dunn was quite amused at watching him.
rreseutly, much to tbe surprise of Mr.
Dunn, be sprang suddenly to bis feet with the
exclamation: "Great Scott! I've forgotten to
get a health certificate, and won't be admitted
into Savannah without it.''
Tho conductor coming through, the man
erplained his dilemma to him, and the urbane
official introduced him to Mr. Duun, who re
grelted his inability to furnish liiui with the
desired certiuVate, as be had neither blanks
nor pen aud ink.
"But, my dear sir," said the Savannah
man, "I'm on my way to got married, aud if
I m detained I shall be ruined."
"If you get me a ien aud iuk I'll write you
a certilicatc," said Mr. Dunn.
itie conductor said tuero was none on
board, aud that it would be impossible to
detain the train until it could be obtained at
"But, my dear sir, the girl, the preacher
and the guests will all be waiting and wou
deriug why I do not put in an ap;earance,"
said the man.
"Telegraph her," suggested Mr. Dunn.
"1 cau't! She lives some miles from Sa
vannah, where there is no telegraph station,"
Finally Mr. Dunn gave him his own cer
tificate and told him to see if he could pass
Mr. Dunn received a letter stating that the
certilicate liad passed him all right, aud after
getting married he had added the words "and
