"In blissful tiiH'onsk'iousuefis of the

opened the door and was preeted by a
delegation of teamsters and laborers
who wanted work. He told them there
must be some mistake.
"Downstairs he was stormed by 200
more, racking his grip, be and his
bride fled from tbe hotel. Friends of
humorous Instincts had perpetrated the
Joke and got much enjoyment out of
