Recollection haa It that Mr. Stone'
disapproval waa shared by most men
of the time, hut It wus with something
like smiling that the home received the
"gun shouldering" and the "bugle

The tlllnolNiin started In with
"We are ruining. Father Abraham, a

repeated twenty rhythmical llnea end

"Night's enfolded banners and the I

arise, this merchant marine would ccae to be available, and our isolation
would at once follow, with if coincident disasters?

reason the cold statistic of the In

bare facta of the estate which are

of absorbing Interest. No personal
