So eloquently did hemauj his plea that , the local agent, though suspicious, concluded to wire headquarters, stating the circumstances, and asking if he should i�-sue a pass. The telegram was laid before Sir Thomas, who at onca recognized the old acquaintance as one he would rather leave in the w.'st. So he indited a telegram, which read: "Don't. Let Jim walk." A week later, to his astonishment, the persuasive Jim walked into his office and^ thanking him for the transpor-tat.on, proceeded to "make a touch" The great railroad man put the best taco on the matter he could, and having gotten rid of his unwelconw visitor, proceeded to make nn investigation, as to why his express orders had bean disobeyed.
