Checkmated. As most people know, when travel ling by train in America, the passen ger at the depot of departure hands over his luggage to the officials, and on payment of a fee receives a metal check, v.-hich he returns in exchange for his trunks on arrival at his des tination. The system has its advan tages, but also its drawbacks prob- j ably, the fatal one of loss of the i checks, for the baggage master will ] only hand over the luggage on receipt : of the vouchers. i A leading light of English Comic Opera, Miss C.P., was going from New York to Philadelphia to join a com- j pany.
