sell the same at public auction to the highest bidder at such place
and time as may be designated by the carrier, provided that the
carrier shall have published notice containing a general description
of the baggage (that is, whether trunk, hand baggage, suitcase, box,
bundle, etc.) and the time and place of sale once a week for two
successive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation at the place
of sale or at the nearest place thereto.
