European sight-seeing curiosities, limited

was of the autumn sunshine type, which
with the recreations of the day left sunshine impressions on the individual expression as they gathered back home.

Brookside park, near Graniteville. The
assessors were asked to join in the search.
This park being mostly water of the frogpond variety, and steep precipice, and tbe
balance imagination on paper to help sell
the park, it is a difficult task to satisfy the
many lot owners that this uninhabitable
frog and mosquito headquarters is their
property and is identical with that thriving, growing park they boaght on paper.
A Lowell party when shown her property
wished the assessors were all in that hot
region where water is not reported to be
as abundant as at this park. Maine, New
Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey
and lihode Island are- alt represented in
ownership in this park and still coming.
It is gathering a national reputation like
unto Yellowstone and Yosemite. Look
for a low rate of taxes from prospective
land and water sales.

and he supposed "the t h i n g w a s . f u l l

" W h e r e did y o u learn to write English correctly V"
"At school."
"School be hanged!
There's somet h i n g else here that y o u didn't learn

believe It will be. It will corae back

T h e y took me a w n y , and t h e mother
said to tho daughter: "Your uncle is
sore because all his o w n manuscripts
como back to him. Don't y o u believe
him, m y dear. Your story will bo accepted, a n d you will g e t a good price

W h e n m y poor little m o t h e r s a w by

been returned to hor the tears started
In her e y e s . H e r uncle said: "I told
y o u s o . I dou't bollevo t h e y read a

my work, but perhaps they'll read this
if I m a k e a personal r e q u e s t Let m e

T h e n e x t day h e took m e to Simpson
& C o . a n d had a long talk a b o u t m e
with t h e editor, w h o •nas very polite
and promised to give m e h i s especial

And s o I w a a

A n d s o I continued to go from ono

Ilo'wevor, my mother g o t nothing
but tho printed slip when I w a s returned, though It w a s couched In just
a s polite terms a s t h e first.
M e a n w h i l e a publisher told my mother that s h e would better write something "startling"—a trifle erotic, he
