HIS UNFORTUNATE FACE. A bright-eyed, rosy-cheeked young sailor I was explaining to some friends ashore, says the Morning Post, how he came to possess much more of un-Excised tobacco and cigar- ettes than it is permissible to pass into civilian society. Well, you see," he said, one of our chaps was painfully unfortunate with his face. He'd never done anything wrong in his life, but when there was trouble of any kind on board he always looked guilty. He simply couldn't .help it. The matelots called him Crimey Jim. They called me Alice. When I found we were to go on the same leave I loaded up pretty heavily with tobacco, and then kept close to Jim. Sure enough, when we tried to pass out of the dock gates the look that came over Jim's face would have hanged a saint. Here, come in- side, matey,' says the thin policeman, and while he stripped Jim about naked I told the fat policeman all about mother and my little sister who was ill, and the presents I was taking them. Then the fat policeman says, 'Righto, sonny; carry on. Love to mummy,' and I just walked down the street and sat on the bundle of tobacco until they let Jim out."
