: and because their table manners are
horrible^"' Mr. /Riley Rowland, who
went to the Home from this county,

never enter, the Home again, unless
great changes take place. Mr. Row

ing his declining years. Mr. Row

years' of experience in deab"ng with

ored to conduct the Home just as he
-, would any place of like .character.

pressed all visitors as nearly like

be, ?nd "among those admitted are
some men of elegant manners, men
of culture and refinement.

Copeland thought it was only some
common ailment and called in Mr.
Greene, who is quite a dog fancier,

were bitten, the former's hurt, being
only the sHghtest scratch, though,
while Mr. Greene's right hand was
severely lacerated in two places. Mr.
Copeland will take treatment at
home. There seems to be consider

mad, had.no opportunity to shoot it
without endangering the large plate
