Cooks' tourists travel exactly according to schedule. The following conversation was overheard in Rome between a mother and daughter:
"Is this Rome, ma?"
"What day of the week is it, Matilda?"
"Tuesday. What of it?"
"If it's Tuesday, it must be Rome."
The man about to take a train was worried by the station clocks. There was twenty minutes difference between the one in the office and the one in the waiting-room. Finally, he questioned a porter. That worthy made a careful survey of the two clocks, and shook his head doubtfully. Then, he brightened suddenly, and said:
"It don't make a single mite of difference about the clocks. The train goes at four-ten, no matter what."
