Hardlv were the curtains drawn
when Mme Merne rushes from the

arms and Mareelle found in the
box which was still securely locked
and not a seal disturbed.
Though the courtesy of Mr. Roh
Hg, Manager of the Lihue Em

carpenters into which Mareelle was
nailed. Two minutes and twenty

how it was accomplished, which
gained unusual applause.

A few guests assisted in the simple
ceremony, and the Mag went up

who put up the building was some
kind of an alien, who had no use
for an American, Mag, so there was
