He couldn't find It, and so. assuming an official air, he walked t'P to the lust carriage and announced in Menioriati tones: "All out here; this car doesn't go." There were exclamation of an noyance front the occupants of the car. but they all got out with their bags and made their way to cars ahead. The young man smiled as he took ose8sioti of a seat and filled another with his luggage. "Ah." he murmured, "it's a grand thing to be born clever! Now I wish they'd start." 1 By and by the station master put his head In the doorway. "Are you the young man who said this car wasn't going?" "Yes." said the clever one, smiling- "Well," said the station master, 'It Isn't. The guard heard what you nld, and he uncoupled It. He thougM nu were a director."
