no person of your acquaintance who will tell
the world of your merits and take the trouble off
uo u r hands."

The picnic was an unqualified suc

fully 400 persons, enjoyed themselves
to the utmost. A better site than the

lulls instilled 110. v life and vigor into
nil who inhaled it. There was ample
space for the various sports and they
were conducted with all the abandon
of childhood, the elders for the lime
being forgetting that the ctre of a
sordid world had entered into their
lives, mid committed themselves unre
servedly to the gira-s which had made
life bright and hippy in their xounger
il.ixs All kinds of amusements were
indulged in the priucipil being the
baseball game and thu tug-of-tvar.
