these disciples of gred and gralt will

As "all wealth conies originally

Hint the class of people who literally
dig down into the bowels or

family of Jamestown, Ya., who sine
the foundation of that historic cil;

js A few years ago Thomas Jatuos got
r. married an after a honeymoon of
eighteen mouths abroad returned
is home with little Jimmie James as one
ie of the most valuable acquisitions of
e their foreign trip.
0 As was the long-standing custom
? of the family, tho proud parents
wanted Jimmie's birtlr recorded in
*- the city registry, buit the city clerk
e politely informed them that it would
11 be impossible to oblige thorn, since
o the child was born not only out of
0 the city, but in another land.
3 After much exhortation and influy
enc-e brought to bear the oflieer, howover,
promised to do the best lie
