He was once traveling by steamer, and, as luck would have it, WHS obliged to occupy a state-loom along with a certain full-blooded Yankee. Both gentlemen arose early in the morn- ing and, while Sir Allan was dressing, he was astounded to behold his inquisitive companion make thorough researches into his (Sir Allan's) well furnished dressing- case. Having completed his examination, he proceeded, while the chicftan lemained in petrified astonishment, coolly to select the tooth-brush, and therewith to bestow upon his long, yellow fangs an energetic scrubbing. Sir Allan said not a word, but "kept up a divil of a thinkin'." When Jonathan had concluded, tho old Scotch- man gravely finished washing himself, silently set the on the tioor, soaped one foot well, and, taking the tooth-brush, applied it vigorously to his toes and toe- nails. You dirty exclaimed the as- tonished Yankee, who had watched every motion, "what the mischief arc jou doiucr that said Sir Allan, coolly, That's the finish I always do that with Life Il- lustrated.

This property was placed in the mate's room for safety until it could be sent to the public store. Presently a well dressed young fellow, not a passenger, was stopped by the gate-keeper, and interroga- ted as to the contents of a bulky parcel which he was conveying away. Not sat- isfying the official, he was detained and an examination made. Thc result waa, it was found that the stranger had made free to break into the mate's room, steal the prop- erty J and attempt to carry it away.
