Russia On his journey through Japan he met Stapleton Neville aup posedly an Englishman They agreed to go together to Russia Because of sus plclOl circumstances they were several time molested by the Japanese Hardy his fortsjHardymerchant In Nevilles shoes Jap found picture of forts proving him to be a Rusglan spy for Rus ala on a steamer which was wrecked shortly afterward Ha was rescued by a Ruslsan steamer On reaching Vladi vostok ho was well treated lie started for Siberia meeting Princess Romonovna on the train Hardy boarded a vessel for Amur Hardy showed the princess his xportneM as a rifle shot The steamer was stranded Tho princess and her maid were attacked by Chinese Hardy saved their lives The princess thanked Hardy for his heroism Manchurians tired upon the craft Hardy slew their chief Burning arrows were hurled upon the Pushkins decks An attempt was made to board the vessel CHAPTER XVIContlnued There were tour of the crew be tides thecaptaln nil armed with rifles to which bayonets had been affixed by the generals order Add to these Smolders the general himself Hardy and three Qourlats and the defending party consisted of 11 members Bravo Stenfca Pugachoff of the crew had gono down the river for help and the attack had been delivered so sudden ly that there was no time to call Ro- manoff who was sleepIng below In deed It Is doubtful If at that moment of extreme excitement anybody thought of him The Chinese were receiving a mur derous and unlookad for reception but they wore not to be easily beaten off Several of them gained the deck and began to swing their clumsy two handed swords and the clash of steel on steel rang out amid savage grunts snarls and cries of rage Tho Cossack crew and the Bouriats fought like dev ils leaping and darting about with the agility of wildcats and handling their more modern weapons with murder ous dexterity and skill A man never knows what sort o- man I he is still a supreme trial comes to him The American found hlmsel- cool His faculties wore all at state of extremes tension with the result that be could see and hear beet tel think faster and decide more quickly than in ordinary moments He took his revolver from his pocket and ran lightly toward a Manchurian who was Just throwing one leg over raiL He fired at the bead of the man who fell back Into the water with a loud splash dropping his sword on flip deck Another leaped over the rail almost at his side and swingin- his great steel blade high In the airo chopped at Hardys head The latter threw up his rifle and received the blow on the barrel The impact brought him to his knees but as he sank he shot his assailant beneath tho chin killing him Instantly- At this moment a blazing arrow passed over him and stuck In one of the cottonstuffed pillows that had been used as a barricade Hardy snatched the pillow threw it overboard and ran to the downstream side of the boat The attack of tho boarders had not lasted In all over four or five minutes and yet In that tlmo several sf the wading party had approached considerably nearer The moon gave sufficient light for him to see the sights of his rifle now and the dark form of the Chinese made conspicuous marks in the gleaming water This was not over two or three Inches deep on tho sand In which the prow of theI boat was imbedded and two of the Chinese were running close in Hardy killed theta both with bio rifle and then began to shot deliberately at those who wero farther away wltbI ouch effect that bo put the entire party to flight are the ten remaining shots in his weapon wore exhausted Ha turned to reenter the melee just- In tlmo to see Doris Romanoff burst raging on deck wrench a twohanded sword from too fingors of a dead Chin nese and ply It with as much ease and skill as though It wero lightest of rapiers The attackers wore gaining ground Euough of them had come I over the side to defend a portion of the rail over which others were rapidly scrambling while several of their number were keeping the defending party so busy that they could not use their guns to shoot them down which Indeed they would not have been likely to do in any case as Cossacks and Bouriats are primitive fighters who do not think of shooting when brought to r lose quarters Boris Ro manoff charged with such deadly skill that the hoarders leaped over the side back Into the water leaving two of their number dead Tho other brigands followed their comrades with the excoptlon of one who was bayoneted In tho back Just as he jumped the riflebarrel striking the rail made a fulcrum of It so that tho weapon was wrenched from the own ers hands And now a thing happcnod that mado Hardy glad that he had not taken Boris Romanoffs hand One of the Chinese was not dead but had been stunned by a blow on the head with atPole Ho sat UP and looked about 1- i Was Bayoneted In the Back Just as He Jumped him when Romanoff kicked him 1 backwardaa gun one of e Bouriats pinned the man writhing to tho deck So firmly was the steel blade Imbedded In the planking that the combined efforts of two men were needed to pull It out again Tho fight was over There was no further danger of the Chinese return- Ing to the attack that night It at all They bad been taught a terrible les son though with considerable cost defendersgwas deeply at the base of the neck from a blow with a twohanded sword Smuldcrs was wounded In tho head by a gash that caused the blood to flow over his cheek His clothing was copiously stained Romanoff It was found too had received a thrust in the lOS of which he made light but which was bleeding profusely The general ordered him balow While tho men were washing down the decks Hardy went into the passage leading to the cabins He wished to reload his rifle and pos sibly get a little sloop Ho wondered how the princess bad fared during these terrible moments of uproar and carnageHer cabin door was open and he saw her within comforting her maid and Smulders Julia both of whom wero in hysterics The two girls clasped in each others arms were lying on a berth with a blanket drawn over their heads sobbing and prayingWe have driven them off madame announced Hardy I think thero Is no further cause of apprehension at present The princess leaning over tho girls pulled the blanket from their heads and made them understand that the enemy had fled I had no fears of the result she said simply with such heroes on- board Her taco was pale but it flushed and her eyes flashed as she cried Oh why am I not a man that might have helped you You have helped us a thousand times more by giving us such a cause to fight for replied Hardy earnestly You arc good at making pretty speeches to women said a sneering voice behind him I roust tell tear highness of the effect which they produced in Japan Hardy turned and btheld Boris Ro manoff towering in the passage be hind him But ho IR wounded my bravo Boris cried the princess as Roman- off entered tbo room limping painfully As the princess sprang anxiously to her cousins sldo and assisted him to a couch Hardy turned away and went to his cabin Sho had not been able to understand her cousins remark reflected Hardy as ho had made it in English CHAPTER XVII The Figure on the Cross When Hardy awoke In the morning he sun was shining against his open cabin window He looked out and saw- n a stretch of yellow water gleaming like gold in the bright rays of the early light and farther away the dark green of the interminable Si berlan forests It was a peaceful scene with nothing In It suggestive of tho dreadful conflict of the night The corpses of tho slain acre even now miles below floating on and on by Cossack villages and stretches of Manchurian woodland proclaiming with mute tongue that another con flict had taken place between tho Slav and the Mongol and with the usual result Hardy went on deck and there beheld a solemn and affecting scene The dead Bourlat lay on a bier improvised of two benches with a cross on his breast The general the princess with her maid and his com rades with uncovered heads stood by while the captain read the burial service All wero weeping The simple service finished tho dead soldier Just as he was In his high boots and faded bloodstained uniform and with the rude wodden cross tied to his breast was lifted and consigned tenderly to the water to float on and on In tireless but vain pursuit of tboso other corpses some of which ho himself bad sent on their long sad Journey to the sea dandshe detained him Have you noticed she asked that the forests aro on fire Ho looked It was true A dense cloud of smoke was rolling up from be hind a long ridge that ran parallel with the river but no flamo could be seen as yet Half an hour later the wind shifted and blew directly fromTthe fire bringing the acrid smoke to the nostrils of the people quarantined on tho Pushkin The firefcolumns wore evidently advancing up tho hill for soon trees began to burst Into flame here and there along Its crestAnd now tho Manchurians appeared again on their own side of tho riversas before They could be plainly seen as the distance was in reality not great and their dark forms stood out distinctly against the strip of white sand that stretched between the woods and tho river They were ma king preparations of some kind The general brought his fieldglass and studied them carefully There was no doubt that they were digging a hole but for what purpose it was 1m possible to tell The Chinese did not leave their In tentlons long in doubt for they brought a hugo cross out from the shadows of the forest and a drug gllng prisoner whom they cast down to on tho earth and proceeded to nail to tho cross The general turned to on Hardy with white drawn face Stenka ho groanedbYes thero was unfortunate Pugacheff had been captured and was now being crucified In plain sight of his comrades The ef of foot upon the latter as soon as they comprehended wn Indescribable They seized their rifles they shook Impotent flits at the shore and screamed imprecations at those fiends engaged there in their horrid work One of the crew mounting a coil of rope addressed a few impassioned remarks to his brethren crying Como on brothers lot us save poor Stenka or die with him Every member of the little band shoutedWe will save him or dlo wlt- bhlmand In a moment more all would have been over tho rail had not the old general drawn his revol ver and leaped before thorn crying In a voice of thunder Stop The first man who attempts to loavo the boat I will shoot through the headand so great was their habitual respect for authority that they paused and regarded him in dumb amazement What my children ho said would ye fall into a Chinese trap Those fiends there are crucifying poor Who to Leave Boat Will Ghootl Stenka that we should our wits and plunge into tho water when they will kill us ono by one We must be brave It Is harder to stand hero and watch comrade In torture than to ie with him Do you suppose that 1- thero were tho least chance of saving him would hold you back Is thero hero any man will accuse mo of No If you go It is who should lead you But 11011 you we could do nothing for poor Stenka and that wo should all bo killed Let us rather pray for divine help and that Virgin will relieve his he tlmo will surely come in Gods good for your revenge promise that you shall foed tat Even as ho spoke the cross was heaved on high and Stenka loomed upon it very largo and plain In the light of the sun shining on tho white of sand The general with his back against the rail tho pistol in his hand Isle volco had been tender but bis eyo was stern and there was that in his man ner which com mand and thin prestige K dozes famous battles It was critical moment during which tho of aU on board was at stake For 10 20 seconds for half minute tho men stood their weapons their muscles rigid In various at titudes of men about to rush into tho fight and then the general Several dropped their rifles tbo deck and covered their faces with their panda sobbing Some fell their knees and prayed while others with pale faces and set teeth re ho tasks on which they had een engaged Tho Chinese having finished what they had to do retired Into the cover the woods leaving that awful thing thero in the light Hardy turned away hit teeth chat tering sick giddy with horror Ills eyes toll on the Princess I white as ghost wringing her hands I and staring at the awful object Oh why does not the Virgin help me Why is not a miracle she Listen my friend she cried grasp- Ing Hardy by the arm could you not shoot so far Could you not put him out of his misery This is no place for you said lardy como away Como inside will go and pray for him she lotting tho American lead her toward the cabin door nave sacred Icon with roe will promise tho Virgin half my fortune if she will save blml- And now an idea occurred to Hardy the of a remedy for case Ho had nothing of the words that had passed between the captain and ih crew though there was no of their Import Why should I I j I j I IStopI The First Man Attempts the I I lose I a I who ccrwardlco I sufferings providence I was- tanding suggested accustomed a a fate a grasping conquered clattering Romanovna a performed whispered hoarsely convulsively I murmured I a I application desperate a desperate understood possibility mistaking bo not again take advantage of his Ig noranco of Russian and act on his own initiative While the generals back was turned Hardy walked to the prow and dropped over the sldo upon a bit of hard sand Then rifle In hand ho ran straight toward tbo Man churlan shore plashing through tho shallow water that flew about him In a spray Men shouted after him fromhthe Push kin Ho paid no but ran on his eyes fixed on tho cross and tho burden that it bore Onco ho stopped into a channel where the wa ter was up to his armpits and running- so swiftly that It nearly swept him from his feet but he struggled through and dashed on again A dozen or more Chinese camo out of tho forest and regarded him In theytookto shoot the bullets striking about him in the water Ono that hit sev skippedliKeto him And still Hardy ran on his eyes fixed on tho man on tho cross He could see the features now but could not recognize them they wore so distorted with agony The bead was moving slowly from sldo to sldo CHAPTER XVIII A Hard Shot The number of Chinese who surpllsIngthem at least 20 of whom were mounted There could bo no further dturlngjcomrades nwoulding that the Chinese had gone away and loft him there to suffer So tlwhenson was coming to Stonkas rescue that they ceased shooting and stood staring in wonder And still Hardy run on across tho wldo and shallow river his eyes fixed on that spectacle of agony At last ho stopped for this time had como for him to do tho thing he must do Ho could get no nearer without tho absolute certainty of bo Ing shot down There wns no other way It would not havo been pos sible for Stcnkas friends to reach that cross without all being picked oft from the woods Ho cast one glance at thin shore measuring the distance with tho keen accurate eye of the marksman Then ho removed his glasses and wiped the moisture tears perhaps from his eyes Re placing thorn he aimed at Stenka and prayed Receive his soul 0 God Ha fired The head stopped that dreadful moving from sldo to side and Hardy thatothe eyes were fixed on his own In AJcomprehension Ho will believe to his dying day that thero was grati tudo In them Ho had missed how over and now tho Chlnosc grasping his purpose began shooting nt him In earnest and several of tho horsemen urged their steeds Into tho water With the bullets scattering all about him Hardy sot his teeth and fired again Poor Stonkas sufferings were over His chin toll forward on his breast and tbo body collapsed limply on tho wooden peg thrust between his thighs Thank God cried Hardy and turning ho ran back toward the boat ran madly desperately as he had run but onco before and that was tho time when ho heard tho princess scream and saved her from tho brigands On ho ran over tho hard sand cov crcd with a shoot of rippling water carrying his rifle low and bending at tho hips Ho realized that every step wits taking him farther from those savages on the shore was putting a greater distance between himself and tholr rifles Ho scarcely believed that ho could get away without being wounded If they would only kill him outright or would hit him in some spot that would not prevent his running lie listened as a barn before tho pursuing hunter for the sound of the guns and still he ran on nut the Chinese did not shoot again haltitrained soldiers with their eyes fixed on something behind him They wero shouting to him but Hardy could not understand He turned looked and knew why tho enemy had ceased shooting They feared killing their own horsemen who were between him and the shore and bearing down on him rapidly There were at least a dozen of them and In a minute moro three bolter mounted than the others would have been upon him These wero bonding close to their horses nocks and were armed with long swords to cut him down Tho American aimed at the horses and fired rapidly three times One of tho animals mortally wounded sank to his knees white tbo others stung and maddened by the bullets became unmanageable and ran snort Ing back toward the Manchurian shore Tho Cossacks now camo up and turning In a volley on tho mounted brigands emptied ono saddle avid compelled the entire party to retire which they did slowly shaking their swords at tho Russians and yelling Imprecations They were destined however to lose ono moro of their Tho man whoso born Hardy ad killed was making frantic but un successful efforts to got away his leg being pinned down beneath the dead animal To him one of the Bouriats ran up and wrenching tho mans own sword from his hand cleft his skull with It and left him there with his dead steed When Hardy again reached the deck of tho Pushkin tho general and the captain each shook his hand In silence and the princess her beautl ful eyes red with weeping said to him It wns an act of mercy my friend for which we all thank you The benvenIrepliedHardycould not cndur the sight of the youlookwanted some ono to do for me ha added

departure for Now York for Inauguration as the first president News of his mothers death came to him in a letter from Col Burgess Hall Tho president was at dinner with Baron von Stoubcn and Gov St Clair Tho letter was handed tho president by his nephew and private secretary Rob ert Lewis After slowly reading It Washington retired to his private room and remained thero for some time He then wrote this letter to his sister Betty Washing ton Lewis at Fredericksburg My Dear Sister Col Halls letter gave me the first account of my mothers death Since that I have re ceived Mrs Carters letter written at your request and previous to both I was prepared for tho event by advices of her Illness coming from your son Robert Awful and affecting as tho death of n parent Is there la consolation In

leave of my mother never expecting to see her more Your affectionate brother GEORGE WASHINGTON Three days after her death Mm Washington was burled The grave was dug In the grounds of her daugh ter Betty The site of tho grave was near a group of rocks Jutting out of a hillside overlooking a tranquil little valloy between Fredericksburg and Maryes Heights ono of the bloodiest battle ridges of the civil war This little group of gray rocks was a favorite spot with Mrs Washington She retired there In fair weather to knit pray and read her Bible Because of this association with Mrs Washington these are now called tho Oratory rocks They aro shaded by heavy oak trace It was a shady place In the days of Mrs Washington and tho trees that shielded her from the sun survived till 1862 when they were torn to death by the storm of shot that rolled over the grave of tho mother of George Washington In tho battle between tho Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of tho Potomac Susan Revlero HcUel in a history of tho Mary Wash- Ington association writes of Mrs Washingtons funeral as follows Business was suspended In tho city of Fredericks burg crapo hung from tho hqusos Tho church was thronged with her friends and neighbors Her body was followed by her loving daughter and grandchildren to a place chosen by herself to bo her resting placo near the granite bowlders now called tho Oratory rocks where she loved to retire and pray for her beloved son during tho troublesome days of tho American revolution The coffin was carried from tho church on mens shoulders tho knoll whore the grave was dug was covered by the concourse of mourners and spectators for they had lost not only tho mother of tho president but an old and be loved friend Tho mourning was general all over the country Iress and pulpit made noto of the event Members of conS gross woro crapo for 30 days as for a distinguished offi cial Congress passed a resolution to erect a monument to tho mother of Washington and to that resolution President Washington responded in a noto of thanks addingI attribute all my success In life to tho moral Intellectual and physical education which I received from my motherThe never erected tho monument called for In tho resolution Washingtons administrations were hampered by tho Indian wars the whisky Insurrection and Shays rebellion Adams term was taken up with

chase and Aaron Burrs conspir acyDuring Madl sons administra tion congress could think of little but tho second war with England It took a long time for the country to settle down after that war and so It happened that nothing but a little headstone marked the grave when Lafayette revisited this country In 1825 La fayctto had known Mrs Washington To him Is given tho credit of call ing her a Roman matron Some of tho prettiest observations on the character of this woman were writ ten by Lafayette After the surrender of Cornwal Ha at Yorktown the citizens of Fredericksburg gave a great ball to Washington and a number of Amerl can and French officers Lafayette was there Mrs Washington though an old woman and not much Inter ested In festive things was after long persuasion induced to attend

of Fredericksburg and asked the honor of being allowed to build tho mon ument Tho design adopted was elaborate The cornerstone of this monument was laid on May 1 1833 by President Andrew Jackson who delivered perhaps the longest discourse of his career Soon after this ceremony Mr Burroughs sustained financial mis fortunes and tho work was suspended Tho pedestal was In placo and marble columns had been hauled by ox teams to the grave It was found difficult to raise money to continue the building The big pieces of marble lay scattered around the place and lay there till after the civil war They

but little progress was made toward the erection of a monument- It was In 1889 that a strong Impetus was given the monument movement The country was wrought up over the approaching inauguration of President Harrison when there appeared In one of tho Washington papers over tho name of a local auctioneer this sensational advertisement The grave of Mary the mother of Gen George Wash Ington to bo

lovely fragrance of Its flowers to gladden the passerby although It has seen moro than n century of a charmed life tho Nelly Custls rosebush at Mount Vernor famed for its potency in securing hU- llJ bands for tho unwedded Is as beautiful today- as when George Washington himself sot it out in his garden and gave It the name of his fascinating stepdaughterTo hamlet that has over furnished a Mount Vernon tourist tho fame of tho magic rosebush has gono and the marriages attributed to Its mysterious Influence would make the reputation of any Schad chen or Jewish marriage broker pale Many a mar rylng parson who boasts of the number of ceremonies ho has performed owes more to the humble little rose bush on the shores of the Potomac than ho dreams of The present generation of Washingtonians have somewhat neglected the rosebush leaving their sight seeing friends from afar to reap the rewards which are supposed to be the inevitable result of preserving a sprig plucked from it and tho census records show that there are 11000 moro unmarried women than unmarried men In the District of Columbia Yet the efficacy of even one leaf from the bush named for ono of the most beautiful of Virginias daughters is vouched for by a number of Washington matrons as well as by many women in other cities As an aid to Hymen the bush has no rival In tho minds of Virginians and among older Washingtonians there are many who still cherish for It a sentimental fondness regarding it as tho kindly fairy of their happiness Time was when no girl who visited Mount Vernon was contont to depart without a leaf of the Nelly Cus tie safely stowed away in her pocketbook or wrapped in her handkerchief Some of these wlllln feminine Borkuscs treated the leaves after the manner of four leaved clover and bashfully tucked thorn into their shoe tops Nothing but the roses themselves would satisfy exact ing damsels for their whltopctaled sweetness was cer tain to have the effect of Inspiring some Prince Charm Ing with love for the possessor within tho following year Lucky indeed was the girl who could successfully eludo the watchful eye of tho gardener and carry off in triumph one of tho flowers so soon to be followed by orange blossoms Tho wiles used by some of these lovelorn little vandals would have done credit to a skilled secondstory man In tho last few years however the faith in the pretty old legend has somewhat died out among the younger generation Whether It be that skepticism follows the trolley as the constitution does the flag or that the bach elor maids of the present think too little of matrimony to cherish any sentimental stories of white roses and proposals there is far less eagerness now to find the bush of fable There is nothing in tho appearance of the bush which has created such havoc In romantic young hearts to awe tho onlooker It is sot close to one of tho main walks of the little old formal garden which was considered one of tho show places of the estate in the days of the great American generals residence there The bush Is near the greenhouses and not far from tho old slave quarters It is not more than eight feet high and still bears its pretty white clusters as freely as over F A Wbelan tho gardener at Mount Vernon Is au thorlty for tho old age of the tradition which ascribes such wonderful potency to this particular buahTher- ose saId Mr Whelan is said to havo been set out by George Washington himself There wero two bushes of this same variety Noisettes in the garden One of these Gen Vashlngton named for his mother Mary J U ll F1Yi IW13ttIlIrGTON C TfiGE Washington and tho other for his wifes daughter Nelly Custls I have never heard any question raised about the authenticity of the story that he planted both of the bushes Just how the tradition of tho efficacy of the Nelly Custis as a lovocharm origi nated I cant say but It is certainly very old The negroes on the place used to loiter around it while court fag because they believed they would soon be allowed to marry through Its InfluenceWhenever thero was a dance or pic ale in the neighborhood say the old timers every young wench about the vicinity wanted to go armed with a sprig of the white rose for each of them believed that once sho got on good terms with the Nelly Custls no colored swain could resist her Every warm evening saw dusky couples sneaking around Mount Vernon and colored wallflowers tramped miles to get ono of tho matchless posies Thero is good ground for the belief that tho legend Is nearly as old as the rosebush Itself A Virginia matron of the old school one of thoso to whom tho bush will bo ever dear told the writer that charming Nelly Custls her self is said to have worn one of the white roses in her bosom when her future husband Major Lewis proposed to her My grandmother said this lady used to tell me that the bush was a great favorite with Nelly Custis She tended It assiduously and used to placo her chair near it when sho read and sewed The white roses which it produced were her favorite flowers Perhaps it was only because she knew they became her that sho so frequently wore them but they came to bo as sociated with her I have somewhere seen a portrait of her with a white rose nestling among the laces of her frock and I for one would gladly be lieve that It was one of tho blossoms from this Identical bush My grandmother also used to tell me that Nelly wore one of these roses when Mr Lewis won her con sent to his suit for her hand Tradition further says that sho took a cutting of the bush with her when she left her homo at Mount Vernon to go to her husbands estate at Arlington The veneration she had for the rose evidently Impressed the superstitious negroes and Its fame grew with every generation Even emancipation failed to shako the confidence of tho negroes In the powers of the bush Tourists were the next to become converts to the faith of the posy Boarding school misses from VIr- gin111 and Maryland schoolmaams from New England and college girls from tho middle west tho frivolous little flirt and tho seriously ambitious bluestocking pretty girls and plain tho very youthful who wore long dresses to look grown up and the somewhat passe who wore short dresses to look youngall succumbed to that spirit of romance which springs eternal la tho feminine breast The romance of Mattie Mitchell now the duchess de la Rochefoucauld the best known beauty of the Wash ington of 20 years ago gavo additional Impetus to the rose bush fetichIsm Miss Mitchell tho daughter of the late Senator Mitchell of Oregon was one of the loveliest girls Washington society has ever known She was as unspoiled and charming as she was beautiful and a belle of two continents In spite of the fact that sho was not credited with the possession of a fortune she was be sieged with flattering offers of marriage But none of the proposals seemed to find a soft spot In her heart and It was not until Miss Mitchell accepted ono of the Nelly Custis roses on a dare that the curtain was raised on the love drama of her life and elm figured as a principal in one of the first great international mar riages of American girls Many of her girl friends pointed to tho fact that Mattie became the wife of Ii bearer of one of the noblest names of France as an added distinction to the little rosebush at Mount Vernon So unusual a romance could not but add to tho pres tige of the old rose charm In tho eyes of believers Yet oven the skeptical wero convinced when not long after a penniless young army officer who had be como Imbued with the idea that one of tho Custls posies might help his fortunes In love and war was enabled to announce his approaching marriage to one of the wealth lest heiresses in tho country This young fellow who it must bo confessed had been looked upon In army circles as extremely unfortunate in his lovo affairs ad matted that he credited the success of his siege to the heiress heart to a bit of faded vegetation which had onco been a Nelly Custis rose There are other roses equally lovely in tho garden Mr Whelan tends with such care and skill but there Is not a girl tourist
