A while ago I published a little
book on a tour I made in America dur

kindest people In the world," and 1
put the dedication In Latin to spare
their blushes. Should I write another
work of the same kind, 1 think 1
should dedicate lt "To the most good
natured, tolerant and patient people
In the world," writes Slr Arthur E.
Shipley In the Outlook.
Although as tho election grew fm
minent Interest In lt became keen and
discussion eager, still 1 only once
heard an acute disagreement between
the supporters of tho rival candidates,
and thia was between a husband and
wife. It seemed based upon a funda
mental difference of opinion on that
most Innocuous nm! unexciting tluld,
As a rule the discussions were most
amicable, and usually finished up, aft
er the method of Lincoln, In a Joke or
a story. Their toleration equals their
good humor. They bear patiently
every variety of religious dogma;
these are almost ns numerous In the
United States as nre patent medicines.
They quietly endure and Ignore the
most Infernal noises. Owing to the
enormous distances one has to trav
erse In the states, one spends a con-,

Mr. Lucas has recently reminded us
that Carlyle bequeathed certain books

very numerous, st lil they exist.
