How are you, Thatcher?” asked the new-comer, laughing. “I say, Jim, what’s your game?” “I really don’t understand you,” said Burnett. “Come into the next car with me a moment.” 125 The other laughed, and followed Burnett. “I don’t much fancy that fellow,” thought Tom. “Why did he call Mr. Burnett Jim? His name is Percy.” He was still wondering that his employer should have such a friend, when Burnett came back. CHAPTER XXII. A ROUGH DIAMOND. “RATHER a rough fellow that,” said Percy Burnett, as he resumed his seat beside Tom. “Yes, sir.” “A rough diamond, I call him,” said Burnett.

“Just as you like, major,” said the clerk, indifferently. “We sha’n’t have any trouble in letting the room.” It is a Western fashion to bestow titles on strangers, and this accounts for Burnett being dubbed major. Percy Burnett hesitated, but just
