Why, make a remittance man of him
It's the only thing to do. A passage
ticket to Quebeo Is secured, the youth la
given 10 guineas in cash, and sails away.
You always find him In the steamer's
smoking room, and thcro does he order
up his favorite tipple and shuffle paste

who makn a pretense of Imbibing
