A GEOGRAPHICAL PUZZLE.
One day Mr. ( a county in Nebraska )
Chase invited me to take dinner with
his family. I was very cold when I
got there , so I warmed myself by" the
( another county of Nebraska ) Furnas.
His daughter's name was ( a river in
Mississippi ) Pearl. We had a very ( a
city in Southern France ) Nice time.
The dinner was very good and we each
had an ( a river of Africa ) Orange after
dinner. Well , after while , we went
out into the yard and played croquet ;
but in a short time it began to get very
cold , and we all went into the house and
played on the organ. While I was
pla3'ing , a ( one of the Bah.imu Islands ? )
Cat jumped onto the organ , and
we were afraid it would catch the ( some
islands east of South America ) Canary
biids. Pretty soon I had to go home.
I liad to go through some ( mountains
of Nevada ) Snow. When I got home
I found company. Her name was Miss
( some mountains in Vcimont ) Green.
We had a very nice vi&it in the house ,
but when Miss Green wanted h > jro
home slip had to iret 01:0 : oK the ( ' . city
in Id.iho ) Dfiiito go : : : with hc-r.
After uhilc my siatur ( a city in Itaty )
Florence came home from u visit , and
for supper we had potatoes fried in ( a
country in Europe ) Gicece.

About 10 o'clock one night , in came
my two coiii-ins ( a city in New Yorl
and a city in noithein New York ) Kiid\
Clyde and ( a city in Texas and a hike
in Now York ) Con : Long. They were
going to visit my uncle , Mr. ( a lake ii
British America ) Frances , and the }
wished me to join them. After some
urging , I consented to go. They were
going to start in a week , and that gave
me a short time in which to get ready
The next day , I went down town am
purchased a ( a city in the Dominion ol
Canada ) Newmarket coat , then a ( city
in India ) Cashmere dress. The week
was up and we started. Thcie was s
young man on the train with whom ]
foimed an acquaintance. His name
was ( a city in Texas and a eitin Penn
sylvsinia ) Jasper Wilcox. A little bo\
v/as with him , whofcc name was ( a ci
in Iowa and a city in New York ) Clar
ence Wilson. They wetc going to the
same place we were. My cousin ( a
city in Michigan ) Florence and uncle
met us at the train. We went home
with him and stayed about two weeks.
One day when were out walking. I saw
something in the grass. I thought it
was a bear , but after examination
found it to be a ( some hills in Texas )
llorsehead. Uncle made Cora and I a
present of some ( a country in Noith
America ) Alaska diamond lings , and
aunt gave me a [ city in Morocco ] Mor-
roceo autograph albumand , also a [ re-
lion in Colorado and a lake in Minne-
sota ] Silver Knife. We were going to
start home the next morning , and aunt
asked us what we wanted for a lunch.
I told her she might put in a [ city in
Illinois ] Sandwich. Just then 1113'
uncle came in and wished to know if
we would like to take a horseback ride.
We all said yes. He consented to let
me ride his little [ a river in Europe ]
Rhone pony. We saw a [ land in the
Arctic Ocean ] Fox and u [ city in
France ] Lyon. We sat on the [ a strait
north of North America ] Banks of the
river and watched the pieces of [ a lake
in the Dominion of Canada ] Wood
float down the stream. After a pleas
ant ride we returned home. I rode
my pony up to the [ a city in South
