In the association rooms they often eaw ,Mna poring over serious books./ He .began the study of French" one day in New Orleans when he discovered a school of languages where French, German and Italian were taught, one fn each of three rooms. The price* .was $25 for one language, or three for $50. The student was provided with a set of conversation cards of each, and was 'supposed to/walk from one apartment to another, changing his nationality at each threshold.

He did not return to the school, but kept the cards and added textbooks, lie studlefl faithfully when oft watch and in port, and bis old river notebook, still, preserved, contains a number of advanced exercises neatly written out. .
