Transcription

Mr. Bunion: What a great thought is now in possession of me.
/
Mr. Bunion: It surely would not harm the train and might do me good
/
Mr. Bunion: They are slacking up well I swear.
/
Mr. Bunion: Aint' that but luck? Oh they will take it with them.
Conductor: It's an old valise but we'll take no chances. Get it off.
/
Mr. Bunion: They'll take it with them surely.
/
Mr. Bunion: I hope he puts it aboard the train. I hope they swipe it.
/
Mr. Bunion: Oh, pshaw!
Conductor: Some bodys trying to wreck us! I can see that.
/
Mr. Bunion: Oh well. I guess after all I'd better keep the old thing. I can't get rid of it. I'm doomed!
