perpendicular ind in many places impassable we 1ipa series of falls beginning at its summit from a small spring and feds incessantly to the pool at the baser by small rivulets that reflect the purity

quench their thir8t- Imagination cannot portray the beauties thereof and the beauties can hardly be realized when beheld by the naked jV fext we enter into the numberless fcavek and canons in variation of sizes from the smallest imaginable to those of huge extent and tremendous height Go also into the Thermal Belt valley on the Eastern side of Melrose moun tains and here we find an elevated fevel extending for thousands of feet along the mountain side where no frost or dew was eyer known and where on I the first day of January 1908 the writer plucked ripe strawberries from tfye

sumed Next we leave the railroad tracks to the left and follow a rough trail through the hills and valleys to the Melrose Falls These Falls are not equal in magnitude to the Niagara Falls but at an hour when the suns rays fall direct on the beautiful falling waters Niagara sinks into insignificance as to resplendent beauty The sprays shoot through the air for several feet as so many dia mpnds thrown from natures hand and fall to the depth below to find a sweet repose in the bosom of the peaceful lakes Herenature s handiwork bursts lorth with beauties untold and splendors un heard of One may think that with these beauties before your eyes a flow er would not appeal to the heart but a lover of nature never ceases to behold ner beauties and around these Fills can be found a perfect carpet of Galyx a small flower or rather o plant the leaves of which are the most beautiful the writer ever beheld They vary in size from a dollar to the size of a din ner plate and are of various colors Red and green beintf the prevailing colors There we behold the Rhododendron3 a shrublike flower that is among the most beautiful to be found in any mountain district the branches are coy eredwith long clusters of white and pale blue flowers of a ver fragrant odor Then turning to our right or left we notice the tiny sprays of trailing Ar butus covered with tiny Dell shaped flowers of very delicately perfumed petals These little vines trail over the mountains in every direction but will not grow elsewhere as it is impossible to transplant them successfully- We then hotice the slopes and mountain side bedecked here and there with patches of Azalia The flaming beauty of these sweetsc nted flowers cannot be imagined as their many branches are covered almost totally with large clusters of long cylinderical shaped flowers similar to our domesticated honeysuckle and would well be knownI as the wild honeysuckle For many yards the sweet odor arising from these flowers is easily perceived Considering the things described it would seem impossible to find anything more beautiful and in a sense it is practically so Yet when we thinkof the pretty views to be obtained from Sunset View Hog Back Mountain Warriors Mountain and other well known points too numerous tp mention j we realize that although it does rot surpass it it is equal to the beauties before described From Sunset View is to be seen the prettiest sunset ever witnessed The sun spreading its spent rays reflecting loer the thousands of acres pf pine for ests casts a hue of untold beauties over a vast area oi the prettiest landscape to be viewed from any other point Here we also get a fair view of Mt Mitchell in Mitchell county North Car olina the highest reak east of the Rockies it being 6762 feet The top most point is free from all natures growths except a small amount of Balsam From Hog Back Mountain we view the scope of pretty landscape in and around Greenville South Carolina tak- lDgin vast cotton fields and extending into Georgia WeV also have a splendid view of the mountains in Western North Carolina Lying in these mountains is a forest preserve of several thousand acres be longing to W K

we find homes of magnifi cent structure and Bithnlithic streets representing the expenditure of hun dreds of thousands of the Vanderbilt millions Not far from this pretty town is the magnificent Vanderbilt mansion overlooking avast area of the most fertile lands in Western North Caro lina and surrounded by miniature lakes walkways and driyewavs so artistically arrangedas to resemble the

took of the situation bar ring occasional moments of grumbling when the bills for ad vertising came in And this was tile exact status of af fairs when Brad hey the new city editor of the Daily Press Wok holdV a n d vowed to make a record and a newspaper at the same time- Naturally in a small city where almost everybody knows everybody else as the saying is the rivalry be tween the two newspapers was intense and the editorial columns vituperative The editorial forces of each paper watched the editorial forces of the other like the proverbial hawk and the rival pa per was always anxiously scanned upon arrival for beats and javelin thrustsBradley had been on the ground about a week when a wicker crate resembling a huge bread basket arrived and was duly delivered to him There was an unoccupied fourth story to the Press building and Bradley carried his basket the stairs and into one of the back rooms Then he walked down to the mill for a small sack of wheatI know whether a divine provi dence sometimes orders things just to suit a newspaper reporter or whether it Just happens that way At any rate when Bradley came down to the ofV lice that morning two months after the arrival of the basket with the rivalry still intense and both papers claiming the ascendancy he held the trump card in his hand During the night the daughter of onei iof the most prominent men of the county had wandered miles from her home after dark taken pQlson and been found dead in a creek near the river The Herald reporter had scurried ort ahead of Bradley to the inquest and the Press reporter cas duly excited Events of this character are few in small cities and the news was Important Bradley stepped to the telephone and ordered a team sent to the office Then he disappeared up the stairs and came back with a basket which he carefully deposited in the runabout Be sure and watch the bell he admonished his assistant and was gone up the road Three hours dragged by and the editor t of the Press was fuming at Bradleys nonreturn A careful ex cursion however showed that Briggs of The Herald was also still out on the story Eleven oclock came The assistant city editor was busy at his desk when he heard a bell tinkle on Bradleys deskVDropping his work he ran up stairs pellmell In a minute or two he returned with asJlp of paper In his hand Opening it he read Body taken to home 12 miles southeast coroners jury just empaneled Watch birds Fifteen times that afternoon the bell on Bradleys desk rang its sum mons Fifteen times the assistant rushed hurriedly Up three flights of stairs and returned with added information regarding the suicide At 130 oclock the bell rang for the last time The assistant returned to his desk bearing the verdict ofc the jury and the figures 30 signed to the message At 2 oclock the Press was on the streets and the newsboys were crying their extra illp in the office of the Herah there was chagrin and vituperative phrases Briggs the invincible had been dethroned by Bradley the upstart At 330 oclock Bradley arrived home with an empty basket Did they fly well he asked anx busty of the assistant who gave him a warm salutation Well I should smile

knowledge for the tale is so wild I would not write jt if I had not the proofs It is one of the stones tone sometimes hears from ignorant and superstitious persons and treats as unworthy of serious attention My informantt was an old friend one of the Italian officials but even his word did not carry conviction at first In a former letter I spoke of the torn t announcement of a paper published forI the first time the day before the de struction of the city and called The FutureThis coincidence struck me as sufficiently dramatic and pathetic without further details but the rest ofI the story is far more remarkable It seems that there were many freethinkers at Messina and free thinkers of the Latin type not merely doubting or unbelieving but violently opposed to anything that Savored of religious belief This new paper belonged to them and the first number was filled with attacks not only on the church but on all religion The ditor not content with saying in his hjeart There is no God devoted a violent editorial to the subject and used these words addressing GodIsend us an earthquake to prove you exist That very night the city was destroyed I have seen the paper and have read the editorial tyjth my own eyes or I would not write the story My Italian friend was deeply moved by it as indeed anyone would be standing in the midst of this hell that was Messina Hew so much mpved that I ventured to remonstrate j Surely you dont think that the great righteous God we are taught to believe in would destroy thousands of lives like this just for a petty spitea spirit of childish 1 told

Tramutola her grave will be opened City Clerk Connelly has is sued a permit for the opening of the grave and the members of Mrs Tramutolas family will hasten to make the substitution of veils Ever since the woman was buried a few days ago the members of jeer family have complained they are haunted by her spirit Mrs Tramu tola when the physicians toll her- she was dying asked her relatives to tie a black veil about her face before Mrs Tramutolas Spirit eproves Them Every NJght her body was placed In thecoHn She said she had strong reasons f r wanting the black veil and tho e who gathered about her bedside promised faithfully to carry out her request But In their grief after she d ed they forgot all about the black vii In stead they had a white one tiqd about her face Since then relatives of Mrs Tramu tota have made many efforts to obtain permission to open the womans grave so they might carry out her dy ing request The authoritiessbellev ing the reasons given for wanting to take up the body were frivolous refused to issue the necessary permit But Connelly became convinced that the Tramutola family would have no peace of mind until the veils were changed The dead womans children told him they feared they r would break down mentally unless they were mothe1sI r 11 L A AS i 1Tt Year i f sleep and that Mrs Tramutolas appeared eveijy night In their homej and scolded them for not Tied out her wish The spirit complained it was being choked by the white veil4 and was in constant tort tore I Please let us open the graVe and change the veil one of the womans children said tearfully to Connelly My mothers spirit must be suffering terribly or she would not come to us at night I see her sufferings in my dreams and I am afraid to goalone to my room In the house for fear her Spirit will appear before me Connelly decided the relatives were so wrought up over the mistake they made In the color of the veil that they really were suffering mental torture It was to relieve their minds he Issued the permit for the opening of the grave FLAGS TRAIN WITH NIGHTIE Man Saves Engine and Oil Cars from Burning Trestle Muskogee Okla Aroused from sleep by a bright glare in the sky

the aggressive members of the Ways and Means Committee is leading the fight for the wool manufacturers It was reported today that Rppresen tative Crumpacker of Indiana is looking favorably upon the change proposed by the member from Connecticut The committee is not divided on the Question upon strictly partisan lines as some of thejemocrats insist that if there is to be a tariff on wool it should be specific An ad valrrem duty would be almost as objectionable to the Ohio growers as free wool Some of the growers insist that they would prefer free wool to the schedules proposed by the carpet man ufacturers Under the system of collect ing the tariffvalues under the ad va lorem system are fixed abroad This the advocates of specific duties claim opens the way tor fraud and deception

OUTBUILDING IS SOUGHT LONG ERE FOUND Hungry Rat Comes to Bite Him Under His Vest and Cold Makes Him Keep Moving for Sever lI Hours New YorkAlbert L Percival Jr who is only a very little boy eight years old spent all Frida night and part of Saturday recently locked up by mistake in a shed in the yard ot- a school in the Bronx listening to the squeaking of rats and fighting the bit ter cold the best such a little boy could know howj j The boy had heard the janitors key turn in the lock just a minute afterhe- had run in th6re to hide fromhis playmates when school had be ndia missed for the aYeEven as he began pounding on the door he could hear the janitors footsteps passing through the yard and nto the rear ok the school building After he had palled and caned until his throat was ore began to walk about the dark alleyway of the room It was supper time before long and down under the fold of his sweater the little fellow felt the Hungry Rat mov ing around He had often wondered just how badly this Hungry Rat could bite especially on days when the range at home wouldnt work and his mother had told him thathe woiild haveto wait for his supper But this time the Hungry Rat did bite for sure just chewed and nibbled and made a pain come right where the supper ought to have been J Soon it was totally dark As fie walked up and down the little fellow would keep one hand on the walls to guide his steps Albert had never been taught that all kinds of bogies and skippy men swarmed t he night but it is one thing to be sitting in the circle of the reading lamp and look outside The Rats Held High Carnival Around the Imprisoned Boy to see how black it Is and another to 1lghtranywhere t Out of the dark strange shapes which changed every time he winked his eyes began to draw in closer and closer about the huddled little boy there on the cold cement floor And what was a good deal Worse there were sharp squeaks sounding from over his head out of black corners and cracks in the floor It was so cold Under the door the wind blew in with quick gusts that darned snow crystals from the piles out In the yard Albert pulled his stocking cap down over his face way to thneck and doubled his hands in under the roll of his sweater First his feet burned then they went to sleep and when he d it was like walk ing on somebody elses foot Shivers ran up and down his back The youngster remembered a story one he had read in the second reader about 1a man who had fallen asleep in pie snow and who never woke up Hje was bound that he would noMfall asleep So he took out his nickel wajfchxthat had been given him for Christmas and held it to his ear flrsyv1thone hand anq then with the otlrer tuin about so that the finger would not get too cold to hold the watch The ticking kept him awake until morning came SOn Sh urday the boys rather went to two camps of gypsies out on the edge of the IBronxthinking that the boy might b e been kidnaped Then about ten oclock he went to the school and asked the assistant janitor to make a search oil the buildings which resulted in finding the boy It was some time before be could speak GiJenfinBoy Horse Trade Tompldnsville Kyir Declaring he had run awa

won derful as the thralldom of thfe princess in the fairy books of our youth Let us walk with her through the paths of retrospection where the1 shooting star swayed in the breeze and the wild phlox painted the hillside with the pink and white of the setting sun Let us conjure up her rosy blush and the silvery ripple of her pulsestirring laugh like the singing of spring water over the jagged stones at the ford Let us look once more into the depths of those eyes and feel again the con fusion we knew of yore Let us stand beside her in the twilight at her fa thers gate and get anew that greatest thrill of the first kiss of love Let us feel the tremor of her hand and the lush wWm blood of affection innocent and undefiled Let us wander down moonlit walks at night and tell her again the old oldstory ever new Let us hear again the solemn vows that were made in the stillness of the room when our hearts beat like drums upon our quak ing sides Let us forget earth heaven the world and all

play same tune at the same time and a steam calliope whose notes at frequent Intervals dur lug the day woke al the echoes be tween Prospect Hill and the West par ish In the menagerie moreover were elephants three of them very mehuv choly looking and small to be sure but which would probably grow Indeed perhaps this was what the man ager was waiting for suggested Tenny Lynne that evening when

propitiatory of vengeance in mysterious ways Tenny was happily oblivious 1 Many fellows had cut recitations to see the parade and to attend the mat inee performance but socially the event of the day came off after sun set Then on the circus grounds were to be seen townspeople mucker and patrician members of the faculty theo logues and academicians en masse The fellows laid in vast supplies of popcorn and peanuts tested the elephants with the conventional plug of tobacco visited ail the sideshows and the menagerie and finally when they were about to take up a collectiori for the purpose of getting the beardejd lady a shave the performance began There is a pyrotechnical outburst of melody from the two bands and Rosina enters upon the sawdust wearing the colorsjof the senior class Wild cheers and fervent encores reward her ma jesty of the wire Next appears a deluded lady contortionist in the crimson of a rival academy Her gold filled smile and venerable collarbones do not save her from obloquy and scorn She retires ignominiously pelted with popcorn At length there Is a startling discharge of small arms from the bandstand a crack of the ringmasters whip and In the entrance from

pet and putting forth her hand could almost feel the canyas vibrate with the swinging trapeze Rosina costumed for the concert came from the opposite corner of the tent She had been crying and the powder drifted beneath her brows scarcely served to conceal the redness of herIgown a handful of wilted carnations which the signor had given her that morning She took the flowers from her belt and

sweating horses hearing the rattle of the band But she didnt She will die early tomorrow in some mis erable little lodging down by the tracksalonewith a woollyheaded old womanin the gray dawn And there will be a smell of frying Very early before it Was yet light Tenny was awakened by a heavy rumble of many wheels The tentwagons with a long cavalcade of cages and charlots were passing up Main street on the way to Reading He watched them lying on the windowseat in his study He saw the gleam of the tarnished gildings and the glare of the moon in savage eyes Aloft In the smoky glow of the wild torches sat a man and a woman She was asleep with her feet on the big drum Her head rested on his breast and his arms were about her A little wind blew cool from beyond the dawns brink and the signor was watching lest it bring rain and wet her majestys beautiful face Long after the last painted car had swayed over the edge of the hill and into the plain beyond Tenny heard the cry of a wild

mailbag whljch the biweekly steamer had just put ashore contained seven letters and postcards The addresses of six of these were familiar to her the addressee of the seventh was notor rather he was too much TO The envelope a tightly packed business one was directed in typewritten characters to MR DONALD MACDONALD Port Sunart Argyllshire N B The postmistress read these words aloud several tithes also the postmark which was London E CU She turned theenvelope and examined the back with its Oban postmark With a sigh she laid the packet on the counter and called her father A narrow door at the back of the shop openedand a very old man came slowly forth Here iss a letter for Toiiald Mac tonald she said speaking English as she and her father always did when the matter was officialccAnd I am not knowing what I am to do wis It She paused aiid the old man looked inquiringly There iss the letter Can you read itr He peered address and slow ly repeated atjhe It iss plain he said What iss vrong wig ftt Flora1ft How many Tonald Mactonalds are in Fort Sunart she asked meaningly The old man began to laugh Well well that Iss a oot Joke Five Tonald Mactonalds ahd a letter for one God pless me 4It iss fine fun you will be hafing Flora There iss Tonald Mactonald Fesdale and Tonald Mactonald Inerewe and Ton aid Mactonald the Ness andft Will I not pe knowing ItU tried Flora irritably Hal any of them peen puylng stamps the last mons month or twoUher father inquired The postmistress shook her head And there hat peen no letters for any of them since little Tonald Mac ton lds sister tied in Greenock And that will pe three years and more Then what iss to pe done Flora Could you not send pack the letterU How could I send pack the letter when there iss plenty of peoples to te liver It to Do not speak such fool ishness father If you will help me you will go to the five Tonald Mac Tonalds and tell them there iss a let ter for fone of them but they must all come togesser to see who iss to get ftt CIA fery goot observation Flora said the old maneel will pe going now Maype there will ps a fortune for one of the Tonald Mactonalds The five members of the ancient clan gathered In a semicircle before the counter behind which the post mistressshsoleI1n and dignified blinked through her glasses The men replied to her questions in Gaelic None of them had seen typewriting before They examined and touched the packet gingerly The letter was posted In London said the postmistress Hat any of you got friends in London There was a long Silence broken at last by Donald MacDonald In erewe Twelve years ago he explained he had tried the lobster fishing and had sent a consignment the crustaceans to a man In London who had never paid for the same Perhaps he concluded Uthe man has reformed and sends me the mon ey at long last IhI518 very likely indeed said Donald MacDonald whose croft was called Sligachan He spoke sarcastically I 1If the letter had been from Camp belltpwn began Donald MacDonald Fesdale California put in Donald Mac ICOr the NeescI once had a cous tnterIa on and was no great favorite in Port Sunart The from London he said drylyIftterls is no use speaking places I am the only Donald MacDonald whose ad diess Is nothing but Port Sunart and I will take the letter A murmur rose from the others LondonIrolled from under the cracked lens How can I tell till I see the letter f retorted the little man holding out his rough weatherbitten hand The postmistress looked at the oth ers With one accord they forbade her to deliver the packet W What am I to dott she said help lessly A tremendous discussion arose among the five and seemed like to continue indefinitely When the father of the postmistress who had been watching the proceedings with an amused grin held up his hand and i 1 called for silence He was hfi1ITN spected by the Port Sunart folk ulf you cannot agree who iss to get the letter he aiduwe will send It pack to the postoflBce in London Will not one of you open it and see what Five hands were outstretched One of you But that could not be arranged Draw lots who is to open It1t cried Donajd MacDonald SUgachanUIt It is not for him he will ge It to the right mab1t After much talk the suggestion was accepted The old merchant cut out five small pieces of paper marked a cross on one folded them up and shook them long and violently in an empty tin The biggest man will draw first he said and this was to in spite of little Donalds protestlX am the oldest said little Donald vainly Hold on exclaime4 Donald MacDonald Sligachan whose mind was fertile in ideaseel propose that the man who gets the letter stands a glass of good whIsk to each of the others before he opens it That will make it fair for everybody This suggestion was also carried in the face of Httle Donalds frantic protests The postmistress may not have ap proyed of the method for the delivery of a portion of his majestys mails but the glasses werecausing her such discomfort that she could hardly think of anything else Still she was determined to keep them on until the busi ness was concluded The drawing proceeded and tbe crossed paper was the las In the tin Little Donald took the litter and sulk ily led the way to the inn while Flora doffed her glasses and wiped her streaming eyes She was doubtful as to whether she had done right but the old man reassured her by saying If It iss for none of them you can still sen4 It pack At the inn little Donald stood treat in a surly fashion The others laughed as the glasses of Talik r were set before them Never before had a man in Port Sunart been treated by little Donald who was reputed to be a miser though what he could have found in his poor fishermans life to amass would have been hard to tell You can open the letter now said Donald MacDonald of Fesdal Little Donald said nothing but betook himself to the farthest corner of the taproom There he turned his back and the others heard the tear ing of paper It took him some time to understand the contents of the en velope When he did so he swore under his breath and scowled black ly Gradually however a sly smife dawned on his bronzed bearded countenance He returned the contehts to the envelope and turned towards the four who had now grown mightily curious For whom Is the letter 7 said two df them together For myself returned the little man grinninguI knew it would be for myself There was a short silence Nqne bf the four knew exactly what to say Then to their amazement little Don aId called for fiver glasses of the best Talisker1 You have good new Zu they ex claimed UIt will not be bad news said lit tIe Donald pleasantly But it will be private The whisky was bought and paid for The little man raised his glass Your very good healths all you Don aId MacDqhalds he said He gulped the neat spirit and left the taproom Alas for the four Donald MacDon aIds With the second glasses of whisky four fiends more potent than the fiery spirit entered into them and would not be at rest In two bosoms thefields were Curiosity in the oth ers they were Suspicion What i4az- the letter about Was It really for the man who now possessed it Ere long the entire adult population happily in thiscaset a small one of some 30 soulsof Port Sunart was stirred to its minds depths The farming and the fishing were no longer the chief topics of conversation th kirk con troversy then raging was for the iirne being allowed to lapse the hatchet was burled under an aval anche suggestions and suppositions regarding the mysterious letter Little Donald kept more alodt than ever but it was observed by those who contrived to see his tae at cioe quarters that he smiled the smile of one who knows something His entering and his leaving the lonely hut were closely watohsd did at night the men sneaked along the shore In the hope of niakins dscover ies But oihing happened By the end of a week the situation had become Irsverate It was ru moed then tat the little man had been seen purcha Incr a postasr svanip though no confirmation of his having posted a letter could be obtained One bold spirit made inquiries at the post office but the postmistress donning her glasses in a hurry sent him dtI- n quick time His majestys mails she informed him with crushing dig nity were private From beIng desperate the situation scon becdme intolerable The sus picious pa ty called for action the merely curious echoed the call Some suggested a deputation others pointed out that a deputation would either alarm or irritate tie holder of the ae crt Then came Donald MacDonald Slfga chan Leave Jt to meFrid he 1 wiri find out what U inthi letter He was of the curious party I And that evening Donald MacDonald i Sligachan called on Donald MacDo surprishefashion He was no hypocrite and he came to the point at once hIs it a fortune he asked Little Donajd stroked his grizzled eard smiling a knowing smile mightbeWhat in all the world did he meaa 1 thought the gligachsm MacDonald Had the letter not been for the little man after all eel would givea bottle ot the but Talisker to see the letier4ne said half to himself I ccI will let you see it for that Dpft aId MacDonald of Sligachan said the other quietly But you must swear to keepJt a secret s The crofter lumped at the otter Where Is ihe letter he cried eagerlyWhere is the best Talisker Eventually it was agreed that the bargain should be completed the fO- llowing night But what am Kto sat to the ptk ers 1u asked the crofter uOh you cn tell them that I give nothing for nothing tie fisherman calmly replied The infdignatlon aroused by tklst message was great but it did not over come the suspicion and curiosity which indeed became more than eyet acute when the crofter repeated the wordsIU might be a fortune for somebody One or two advocated the extreme measure of calling In tue policeman who visited Port Sunart twice a week but they were not en couraged After all little Donald fciul never really harmed anybody aid moreover he had once stood TaliskerEarlySligachan man reached the lonely hut his jersey bulging with his fee f tot knowledge Come in Donald MacDonald Mid the fisherman You sweat neve tc tell any soul what I show you The crofter set the bottle oa the table and tpok a solemn oath Read said little Donald handing him the letter Remember I never asked you to come here The other took the envelope IWIbig trembling fingers Three minute later he flung the papers on the tabtt and with a fearful curse strode to d4 door Remember said little DorifW quietly gathering up the papers and returning themJl carefully to the envelope remember that I have not worn not to tell asouL As the crofter hurried homewards he met several neighbors bound for the hut Each carried a parcel of some kind They accosted him and ender ored to extract information It fs nothing at allnothIBCat all he replied evasively We will see for ourselves they stoutly retorted They reached the hut and proclaimed their errand boldly One at a time said little DonUd coolly Come you first JQbn Mao Taylsh will give you thlsisaqk of ppta toesUsaid MacTayish slipping ithe load from his shoulder- It will do You have offered It remember John MacTavish took the oath read the contents of the envelope arid departed cursing softly He Iaiaged however to smIle as he paaaeii through the little cluster of neighbor I am next1t said a brawny matron at the door Little Donald shook his head fJ deal not withwomenv She would have made trouble but the men were in the majority and Ira patient to read for themselves Here are two pounds of fine but ter said Donald MacDonald PesdMla on gaining admittance to the hut It will do Four minutes later Donald MacDon aid went back to Fesdale cursing It was after nine oclock when little Donald was left to himself He Iooke4 about him with a satisfied grin OB the table lay five pounds of butter two dozen eggs a fowl a pound pl cheese half a pound it tea 12 ounces of twist tobacco a wooden pipe not quite new a pair of socks and two bottles of Tallsker on the floor rested a sack of potatoes and another of neatly chopped firewood- It will do he muttered atlha Ut his lamp He opened one of the bottles cut himself some bread and cheese trey the table near the fire and seated him self by the hearth He stirred the fire flung on a couple of peats got rid of his se toots and stretched his feet to r the blaze Presently he took from his pocket the now thuinbefi and frayed envelope He regarded jit almost affectionately 4cI wonder how they knew my name he said to hlmselk It la very strange that they should hay own my name in London But iave heard that the people who sent a ruth letters as this 011e1t he tappei the envelope are very eleven Pet haps they just guessed that there wa one of the name of Donald MacDonalcj In Port Sunart Now I remember there was a Sir Donald hjad the shoot I ing one year But it is no matter I has been a good advertisement foi them whatever Now II am inisho with it He emptied the envelope and threij it on the fire It was followed by a few closely printed leaflets Finallj the flames received a neat an4 bright ly colored booklet As the coyer ofthr booklet caught fire little Donald read the title and repeated it What Is Indigestion rie snxtled 1 thank the good God Tdp not know he murmwred and turned to Lila upper 4 j d r 3 7
