and a diner. They had made up their minds that they would journey on the train even if they had to sit up in a smoking compartment. But the cars proved to be less than three-quarters filled, and they had but little trouble in obtaining a section. Then they settled down as best they could for the long journey to Chicago, 184where, of course, they would have to change 杭州按摩服务安全么 for the train to the East. They paid for their passage only as far
as St. Paul, so that they might leave the train at that city if a telegram was received assuring them that everything was all right.
“But I’m afraid we won’t have any such luck, Roger,” observed Dave, in speaking of this possibility.
“You can’t tell,” answered the senator’s son 杭州保健按摩上门服务 hopefully. “It’s 杭州哪里有咝足会所 just possible that Laura and Jessie may have returned home and explained their disappearance.”
“They’d never stay away so long without sending some word, I’m certain of that,” answered our hero emphatically. “They are not that kind of girls.”
“It certainly would seem so, Dave. But you must remember they may have sent some kind of word, and it may not have been received. They may have met some friends, sent a message, and gone off on an automobile tour or a motor-boat 杭州夜生活hzye123 voyage.”
Dave shook his head. “It
won’t do, Roger. I know Laura and Jessie too well. They would want to make sure that the folks at home knew where they were. And they would send us word too. Besides that, they wouldn’t go off on any extended trip, such as you mention, unless they had permission from my father and Mrs. Wadsworth.”
185All through the morning 杭州油压爽记 the two young civil engineers discussed the situation from every possible angle, but without arriving at any satisfactory conclusion. At noon they partook of lunch in the dining-car, making this repast last as long as possible, “just to kill time,” as Roger expressed it.
“It’s going to be a long-winded trip,” sighed the senator’s son, after they had finished their meal and had walked back to the end of the observation car.
“Well, we’ve got to make the best of it, Roger,” 杭州桑拿信息大全 was Dave’s reply. “Ordinarily such a trip as this would be fine. Think of what grand scenery there is to look at!” and he pointed out with a sweep of his hand.
The long train rumbled onward hour after hour, and the two youths passed the time as best they could, talking, looking at the scenery, and reading the various papers and magazines contained in the car 杭州按摩紫金沙 library. At seven o’clock they had dinner, and then sat outside once again until it grew so dark that nothing could be seen.
“Well, we might as well go to bed,” remarked Dave finally. “Which berth do you want, Roger—the upper or the lower?”
“It is immaterial to me, Dave,” was the answer. “To tell the truth, I don’t think I’m going to do much sleeping.”
“We’ll toss up for it,” was the answer. And 186the toss of the coin gave Dave the lower berth.
It 杭州kb场 proved to be a 杭州桑拿按摩小姐 long, wearisome night for both of them. Dave tumbled and tossed on his pillow, trying in a hundred ways to acc
