been Inken by ye populace In yo mos

ral of those most prominent 'among ye
populaiu have expressed their view's ion
ye question through ye meillum of yo
publicities, mid likewise there have
been sewrul who from sheer modesty
have kept yo light ot their Identity
well under a bushel. In this respect
Ihelr modesty reminds yo scribe of ft
' certain ludy of uncertain years. Ye
fair dame was so modest that she al
ways made 11 a habit, to turil' out ye
light while sho disrobed.
Ye scribe took ye trouble during lost
week to inako some Investigations, and
during the course of hyx wanderings
butted Into u one of ye populace who
hutb tuadu a study of yn small Insects

' scribe many Interesting things, which
nre set down herewith for benefit of ye
populace at large. Quoth lie:
