not take us long to decide that while
New York wields a niisrhty influence
over the affairs and commerce of our
nation, yet she seemed to lack the

Undertook to do there proved the fact
that even if the displays of the luxn

noticeable that our city follows

Porch posts in the rough are hollow,

the rate of 400 revolutions a minute.
Computation shows that it made
3.800 revolutione. When the job
was done, the post was laid on the
