his habit and privilege to lie down on an improvised couch and doze With the advent of the ducks the dozing stopped The almost constant quacking of the ducks who could not under stand their strange environment would not permit of sleep One night a bright idea came to him After he had put it into execution the ducks were silent The next night he had two coops of unusually vociferous ducks As soon as it came time for sleep he wrenched a slat from one of the coops reached in and pulled out a duck From his pocket he took a small rubber band which he slipped over the ducks bill just back of the nostrils The duck tried to quack but rubber band while it stretched a little would not permit the duck to open its bill far enough to use ita tongue Only a murmur came from it One by one the ducks were muz zled and the baggageman rested com fortably Thfj commission men were surprised next morning when they re ceived a lot of ducks with rubber bauds around their bills and when the bands were
