some Jand at a distance, of being as
saulted and robbed. Sydney must
accompany him home. A sorrowing
daughter, who mourned him as dead,
greeted him at his own palatial home.
She was the original of the cherished
portrait, Eva Morse.-
When all the beautiful story of the
soulful fidelity of Sydney Blair to a
stranger was told, gratitude shone in
those lovely eyes.
And then love, and in the golden
days that passed by as a joyful dream

Of "Mister Connor's rank decision."
When Coltman has his landscapes
And full of art and erudition,
He rattles with an easy tongue
Of atmosphere and composition,
Though your remarks may be com

For many men have many views;
Some men are Christian, some So
