Wo have lone known by tho signs that roach

of men ot forolnn birth but wo never knew un

Ono other thine that did us no credit oar

and even he mas well bo proud of It
But the town as I whole never was so gay
nnd as the fresh west wind raced the streets
and set all the ends and loops and folds of
bunting snapping and fluttering nnd as I
stretched each flag out rigid from Its pole the
sluht was beautiful Combined with the cnudy
trimmlriB hero and there were thousands of
portraits of Washington and those woro so
varied and so extraordinary as to demand a

then one wag seen that the rain had partially
dissolved so that tho austere features of tho

Tho scone ot preparation for the plgon tlo steam

Now and then the channel between the city II

the part of civilization to shoulder work

that nine in ten of tho corklike launches that
