whispered to another that something must be done
to put a stop to this unallowable smoking.

Miss S. called the stewardess: “You must tell
that lady that it is not permitted to smoke in this
room.”

“I have told her so, Missis, but she takes no
notice. It is of no use talking to her.”

Again they waited a while to see whether the
smoking lady would not pay attention to silent,
but very evident signs of displeasure. But no,
she sat as unmoved as ever, and filled the room
with smoke.

The lovely young Miss S. now summoned courage,
advanced toward the smoker, and said in a
very polite, but at the same time firm and dignified
manner, “I don’t know whether you have observed
that your cabin has a door which opens on
the piazza, and—it would be much more agreeable
for you, and for all of us, if you would smoke
your pipe there.”

“No. I prefer smoking here in this room.”

“But it is forbidden to smoke here.”

“It is forbidden for gentlemen, but not for ladies.”

“It is forbidden to smoke here, as well for you
as for any one else; and I must beg of you, in the
name of all the ladies present, that you will desist
from so doing.”
