When Great Men

In writing biographies, authors have a
way of skipping .oyer the childhood of

from having it fall to pieces, nnd when
tho book ends, the venerable wagon Is
still In tho running,' or Jogging, If you
will. The story a quaint, homely tale
ot plain folks Is partly about life In
Philadelphia .and partly about the odd

but there's lots of good, wholesome
character drawing, ami Kome'very whole-'
