Tuesday forenooja passed away happily, with

1 would go out and take a walk. My garden door
has a sort ot peon-hole in it, covered with a wire
grating. As I got close to this grating, 1 tnougnt
i eaw sometnmg mysteriously oars on tne out

and instantly found myself face to tace with the
crape veil. "Sweet, sweet spot!" said the mutlled

the -name of Mr. Badgery was plaintively pro-
