The most startling occurrence happened at about 11.30 of the first night. Some angry person on the second floor rang loudly and repeatedly for icewater. About one minute after the bell ceased ringing the night clerk was astonished by the appearance of Miss X, clad in a heavy coat and some high unlaced tramping-shoes. with her hair done up in a remarkable array of curl-papers. In her hand she carried what appeared to be a black leather jewel case. Upon being questioned she murmured something inarticulate about fires or drills and went back to bed. It was what happened in the dining-room, however, that turned the Alwaysproper family against her for once and for all. She finished breakfast before anyone else and started to leave the room. and as she reached the door she turned and bowed and smiled at the table in the right- hand corner. The table happened to be occupied by three young men friends of the Always- propers, who couldn't possible know this strange creature, and thereafter the Alwayspropers were distinctly frigid. Several days after her arrival one of the men brought up a bag which bore Miss X's name and which he had found in the basement. The bag contained some soiled clothes. On Monday morning Miss X had put all her laundry in the bag, tied it up and dropped it down the elevator shaft on her way downstairs. Hihen the day arrived for her departure the clerks were simply bombarded with questions. "YYhen was the ticket man coming?" "XYhere was the chart to sign up for trains? " "XYhen were the trunks coming up?" "XYhen were they to be checked?" "'YX'hat time would the check man be at her corridor?" After much patience and careful explanation she was at last persuaded that there was a railway station where she bought her own ticket. that she could take any train she wished without going through the mysterious process of "signing up that she could procure a taxi at the carriage door without first buying a little yellow ticket, that if she wished her trunk to be sent it was necessary to do more than write "Ready" on the top of it, and finally thatgthe hotel was not expected to furnish a chaperone to conduct her safely to the city. As we said before, Miss X was exceptionally absent-minded, but the habits of years are always hard to overcome. r -L8
