Watterson lectured at Chautauqua Thurs
day and afterward came here. A reporter
found him at Sterlingworth inn, and Un

of the subject that I cannot bring it down
to politics, and wouldn't if I could. I
am not going around the country as an.

of. This thing has been so real a trouble
to me that I have to have my baggage
marked with another name and travel un
der an alias like a burglar in order to es
cape the interviewers. They are every
where, and they fire questions at me
whenever they see me."

pump a-going until Mr. Watterson, after
repeating several times that he would not

have such good facilities for talking in
print mysel', you fellows all over the
country keep at me, trying to make rae
talk to you." Still th fiend pursued him.

came to an end thus: "What of .Campbell

who invited him to promenade across t bed
room and be presented to his wife, And
