 About the Book 

I was down on the card to make a quick jump to Pittsburg a few nights ago, and Im a lemon if I didnt draw an upper berth in the sleeping car thing! Say! Ill be one of a party of six to go before Congress and tell all I know about an upper berth.MoreI was down on the card to make a quick jump to Pittsburg a few nights ago, and Im a lemon if I didnt draw an upper berth in the sleeping car thing! Say! Ill be one of a party of six to go before Congress and tell all I know about an upper berth. And Id like to tell it right now while Im good and hot around the collar. The upper berth in a sleeping car is the same relation to comfort that a carpet tack is to a bare foot. As a place to tie up a small bundle of sleep a boiler factory has it beat to a whimper. Strong men weep every time the ticket agent says, Nothing left but an upper, and lovely women have hysterics and begin to make faces at the general public when the colored porter points up in the air and says, Madam, your eagles nest is ready far up the mountain side. The sleeping car I butted into a few nights ago was crowded from the cellar to the attic and everybody present bumped into everybody else, and when they werent bumping into each other they were over in a corner somewhere biting their nails.
