I’lie Three Traveling liagn.
j There were three of llreni, all of shirt
ing BJ;ick leather, one on ihe top ol'tlie
pile ol trunks, one on the ground, and
one in the owner’s hand—all going- to
Philadelphia, all waiting to be checked.
The last hell rang. The baggage
man hustled, fuming from one pile of
baggage to another, dispensing chalk to
trunks, cheeks to the passengers, and
curses to porters, in approved railwuv*
“.Mine —Philadelphia!” cried a stout
militarv looking man, with enormous
whiskers and a red lace, crowding for
ward as the baggageman laid his hand
on the first traveling bag.
“Won’t you plase to give me a check
for this now ?” entreated a pale, slen
der, carefully dressed young man, for
the ninth time, holding out baggage
No. 2 ; *1 have a lady to look after.’
“Say ! he you agoing to give a check
for this ere or not?” growled the pro
prit torof bag No. 3, a short pock*
marked fellow in a shabby ovetcoat.
“All right, gentlemen. Here you
are, ’ says the functionary, rapidly
distributing the checks. ‘Philadelphia,
this? Yes sir—2o63—l7lo —1026.
“All aboard !” shouted the conductor.
“W hoo-wliew !” responded the lo
emilotivi* nn fi t sic m wtw »»
out of the station house.
The baggageman meditatively watch
ed it as il sped away in the distance
and then as if a thought suddenly struck
him slapped his thigh and exil limed;
‘■Blest, il I don’t believe— ’
“What ?” inquired the switch man.
“That I’ve gone and gave them three
last fellers the wrong checks. The
cussed little black things were all alike
and they bothered me.”
“Telegraph,” said the switchman.
“Never you mind” replied the hag*
gage man. “They was all going to
Phiiadelphy. They will find it out
when they get there.”
The scene shifts lo Continental 110t 1
tel, Philadelphia. Front parier, up
stairs. Occupants, the young gentle
man alluded to as No. 2, and young
lady. In accordance with the fast
usages ol the times, the twain had neeu
made one in holy matrimony at 7:20, a.
m., duly kissed and congratulated till
8.15, put aboard the express at 8.45, and
deposited bag and baggage, at the Con
tinental, at 11,58.
They were sealed on the sofa, she
black broadcloth coatsleeve encircling
the slender waist of the gray traveling
dress, and the jetty moustache in equal
ly affectionate proximity to the glossy
“Are you tired, dearest?’
‘No love, not much. [Jut you are,
aren’t you ?’
Kiss and pause.
‘Don’t it seem funny ?’ said the lady.
‘What love !’
‘That we should be married.’
•Won’t they be glad to see us at
•Os course they will.’
‘l’m sure l shall enjoy it so much.*
Shall we get there to-night?’
‘Yes love, if-—*
Rap. rap, at the door.
A hasty separation took place be"
tween mail and wife, to opposite ends
of the sofa ; and then ;
‘An’ ye plaze stir, it’s an M. P. is
waiting to see ye?.’
•To see me —a policeman ?’
‘There must be some mistake.’
‘No, sur, it’s yourself; and lie’s
writing in the hall bevant.’
•Weil, I’ll go to —no tell him to cone
‘Sorry to disturb you, sir,’ said the
M. P., with a large brass star cn his
breast, appearing with great alacrity at
'he waiter’s elbow, ‘I believe this is
your black valise ?”
Yes, that is ours, certainly. It is
Juba’s —the lady’s things are in it.’
‘Suspicious circumstances about that
valise, sir. Teiegflapli came this morn
ing that a burglar started on the 8:45
Philadelphia train with a lot of silver
spoons in a black valise. Spoon3

Followed it up here. Took a peep
inside. Sure enough there were ihe
spoons ; marked T. 8., too. Said it

bridegroom. ‘But I assure you, my

•O, Charles ! this is horrid. Do
send him away. Oh dear! I wish I
was home,’ sobbed the little bride.
‘I tell you, sir,’ s tid the bridegroom,
bristling up with indignation, this is a
vile plot. What would Ibe doing with
your paltry spoons? I was married
this morning, in Filth avenue, and 1
, a u* (’U my wedding tour. I have high
relations in New \ ork. A ou’il repent
it it you dare to arrest me.’
i k Oli, come now,’ said the incredulous
official. ‘l’ve heard stories like that he
; lore. ( ids uin l the first time swind
lers has traveled in couples. Do you
s’pose 1 don’t know nothing!’ 'Taint
i no use : you’ve just got to come along
to the station house .Might as well
go peaceable ’cause you have to.’
‘Charles, this is pcrieetly dreadful !
Our wedding nitrht in the station house !
Do send for somebody. Send lor the
landlord to explain it.
J he landlord was sent for and came ;
the waiters and chambermaids and bar
room loungers came without being sent
for, and filled the room and adjoining
hall—some to laugh and some to say
they wouldn’t have believed it, but
neariv all to exult the he unhappy pair
had at last been found out.’ No ex
planation could he given and the upshot
was, in spite ol tears, threats, entreaties,
rage and expostulations, the unfortunate
newly married pair were taken in
charge by the relentless police »nd
marched down stairs e>i route to
the police office.
And here let the curtain drop on the,
melancholy " **
iv.nines ol the black valise No* 2.
When the train stopped at Camden,
four gentlemen got ofl and walked arm
in-arm, rapidly and silently, up one of
the by streets aid struck off into a
loot-path leading to a secluded grove
outside the town. Os the first two,
one was our military triend in a blue
coat, apparently the leader of the party.
Os the second two, one was carrying a
black valise. Their respective com
panions walked with hasty irregular
strides, were abstracted and appareiuiy
ill at ease.
The party stopped.
‘This is the place,’ said Capt. Jones.
•Yes,’ said Dr. Smith.
The captain ami the Doctor confer
red together. The other two studiously
‘V’ery well, I’ll measure the ground,
and do you place your man.’
It. was done.
‘Now for the pistols,’whispered the
Captain to his fellow second.
‘Tney are all ready in the valise,’
replied the doctor.
The principals were placed ten paces
apart, and wore that decidedly uncom
fortable air a man has who is in the
momentary expectation of being shot
‘You will lire, gentlemen, simulta
neously, when 1 give the word,’ said
the Captain. Tncn in an undertone to
Quick, the pistols.’
The Doctor, stooping over and fumb
ling at the vatice, appeared to discover
something which surprised him.
‘Why, what the d—l— ’
‘What’s the matter V asked the Cap
tain striding up. “Can’t you find the
‘Deuce a pistol or a cap but this,’
He field up a lady’s night-cap.
‘Look here—and here—and here,’
holding up successively, a hair brush,
a long white night gown, a cologne
bottle and a comb.
They were greeted with a long
whistle by the Captain, and a blank
stare bv tne princtpals
‘Confound the luck,’ ejaculated the
Captain ; if we haven’t made a mistake,
and brought the wioug valise.’
The principals looked at the seconds.
The seconds looked at the principals.
No body volunteered a suggestion.
At last the Doctor inquired : ‘Well,
what is to b? done V
‘D—d unlucky !’ again ejaculated the
Captain—‘the duel can’t go on.’
‘Evidently not,’ responded the Doc
tor, ‘unless they brain each other with
the hair brush, or take a pop at each
other with a cologne bottle.”
You are quite sure there are no pis
tols in the valise?’ said one of the
principals, with suppressed eagerness,
and drawing a long breath of evident
‘We must go over to the city and get
the pistols,’ proposed the Captain.
‘And by that time it will be daik,’
said the Doctor.
‘D —d unlucky !’
‘We shall be the laughing stock of
the town,’ consolingly remarked the
Doctor, ‘if this gets wind.’
‘One word with you, Doctor,’ here
interposed the principal.
At the end ol the conference with his
principal, the Doctor advanced to the
Captain and they conferred with him.
Then the Captain conferred with his
| principal. Then the seconds held a
: conference with each other.
Finally, it was formally agreed be
tween the contending parties that a
statement would be drawn up in writ
ing, whereby principal No. 1 tendered
the assurance that the offensive words,
‘You are a liar,’ were not used by him
. in any personal sense, but solely as an
j abstract proposition, m a general way,
in regard to the matter of fact nnder
dispute. To which principal No. 2
I appended his statement oi his high
j gratification at this candid and honor
, able explanation, and unqualifiedly
withdrew the offensive words,‘You arc
' a scoundrel,’ they having been used by
him under a misapprehension of the
NO. J 4.
intent and purpose of the remark which
had preceded them.
There being no longer a cause for
quarrel, the duel was of course ended,
l'he principals shook hands, first with
each other, next with the seconds, and
were evidently very glad to get out
‘And now, that it is so happily set
tled,’ said the Doctor ; chuckling and
rubbing his hands, ‘it proves to have
been a lucky mistake, after all, that wc
brought the wrong valise. Wonder
what the lady who owns it will say,
when she opens ours and finds ihu
•Very well for you to laugh about.’
growled the Captain, ‘but it’s no joke
for me to lose my pistols. Hair trig
gers—best English make, and gold
mounted. There ain’t a finer pair of
shooters in America.’
‘O, we will find them. We will go
on a pilgramage from house to house,
asking if any lady there has lost a night
cap and found a pair of dueling pistols.*
In very good spirits the party crossed
the river, and enquired at the baggage
room in reference to each and all black
leather traveling bags that arrived that
day—look notes of where they ( ,«’<*ftl
Wise 1 time they reached the Continental,
and as luek would have it, met the
unhappy bridal pair just coming down
stairs in charge ol the policeman.
‘Wliavis the meaning of all tliis ?’
inquired the Captain.
•O, a couple of burglars, caught with
a valise ol stolen property.’
‘A valise!—what kind of a valise?’
•A black leather valise. That is it.
‘Here!—stop !—Policeman !—Land
lord ! It’s all right! You are all wrong!
That is my valise. It is all a mistake.
—Tliev got changed at the depot. That
lady anti gentleman are innocent.—
Here is their valise, with her nightcap
Great was the laughter, multifarious
the comments and deep the interest ot
the crowd in al! its dialogue, which
they appeared to regard as a delightful
entertainment got up expressly lor their
•Then you sav this here thing is
yours?’ said the policeman,
his bold upon the bridegroom, and
confronting the Captain.
‘Yes, it is mine !'
‘And how did you come by those
‘Spoons, you jackanapes !’ said the
Captain, dueling pistols.’
‘Do you call these pistols?’ said the
policeman, bolding up to view one ot
the spoons, marked T. 11.
The Captain, astonished, gasped, ‘it
is the wrong valise again, after all * *
‘Stop, not so fast!* said the police
functionary, now invested with great
dignity by the importance ot the allair
lie found himself engaged in. ‘lf so be
how you’ve got the lady’s valise, she
is all right, and can go. But in that
case this is yours, and it comes on you
to account for them as stolen spoor.?.
Have to take you in charge, all four of
‘Why. you impudent scoundrel!’
roared the Captain, ‘l’ll see you in
h ; I wish I had my pistols here;
I’d teach you to insult a gentleman
shaking his fist.
The dispute waxed fast and furious.
The outsiders began to take part in it;
and there is no telling how it would
have ended, had not an explosion,
followed by a heavy fall and scream of
pain, been beard in an adjoining room
'Fhe crowd-rushed to the scene of the
The door was fast. It was soon
burst open and the mystery explained.
'Fhe thief, who bad carried off the
Captain’s valise by mistake for his
own, had taken it up to bis room and
opened It to gloat over the booty he
supposed it to contain, thrusting his
hands in alter the spoons. In doing so
the pistol had gone off, the bullet
making a round hole through the side
of the valise, and corresponding hole
in the calf of his leg.
The wounded rascal was taken in
charge first by a policeman, and then by
the Doctor ; and the duelists and the
wedding pair struck up a friendship on
the 'score of llicir mutual mishap, which
culminated in a supper, where the fun
was abundant, and where it would be
hard to say which was in the best
spirits, the Captain for recovering his
pistols, the bride l:»r getting her night
cap, the bridegroom for escaping the
station house, or tiie duelists for es
caping each other. All resolved to
‘mark that day with a white stone,’ and
henceforth to mark their names on their
black traveling bags in white letters.
