Even then pesple addressed mail to Mr. ,Ezeklel Smlthers, "Atlantic Coast," and ex pected Ben to know Just where' Zeke lived. Perhaps they had Zeke's address In letters up In the garret, maybe a chest full ot 'era, but then it was easier to let Ben hunt Zeke. Today people are addressing letters to John Smith, New York, N.
