oddly. He wore corduroy pants
and a thick knitted woollen jacket,
coarse, ill fitting shoes and a greasy
skull cap completed his costume.
When we ianded from the boat, a;
the railroad wharf, he carried
ashore, in his hand, a queer look
ing hand satchel. It was almost a
perfect cube in shape, evidently
made of wood, covered with leath
er. He was ridiculously careful
with his precious satchel lifting
it with both hands and scrupulous
ly intent on keeping it level. I was
close behind him when ho stepped
from the boat to the wharf and I
noticed that when his foot touched
the floor of. the landing place, a'
distinct clicking sound was heard
to proceed from his baggage. I
would not have paid much atten

withstanding his pure accent, was
plainly a foreigner an anarchist.
He did not want any one to hear
' the working of his deadly machine.

a queer affair too queer to be

the way to Goldsboro : out could
advance no further in my investi

for Kaleigh so did I. He went
through the same careful manipu

as before. I wanted to telegraph
to some one in Raleigh to look out
