Instead Paterson, N. J. Br GEORGE FITCH, tathur of "At Good Old Simula." Paterson Is located In New Jersey, three turns and four comers by auto mobile pike from Newark; and is a city of 123,000 people, and a number of whom contrary to the general Idea, are satis fied with tho government. Paterson waa founded in 1791 at the suggestion of Alexander Hamilton, for the purpose of being a great cotton manufacturing center. Later on It was promoted to silk and now produces J23.0CO00O worth of illk In a good, free spending jear. It takei liWX) people to weave thfi silk, but they do not wear It themselves. They refrain with re markable firmness from doing so. After tlie Imported cltixen has woven silk all day in u Paterson factory he put orr his cotton coat and comes down town to promote the cause of anarchy as a pas time Paterson has more anarchists per millionaire than any other American city, but they are not as fatal as the Chicago breed. Paretson alsi manufactures locomotives and rebuilds itself whenevec necessary. It was burned In 1901 and flooded In 1902. but has recovered from both afflictions. It wanders over the New Jersey hills and along the banks of the Implacable Pas saic River and can be navigated In all directions by automobles with good springs. rater"on Is brand new and attractive down town, thanks to Its big nre. It lias many fine residence streets and one iar?M rastle with real ruins attached. which looms aloft from a high hRV and makes the foreign visitor weep with of merely checking, these Invading hosts. "My toast," cried John Adams, "Is a short and violent war" Others envied Washington his power and his growing fame, resented their own subordination and his supremacy, and Intrigued to put Gen. Gates In his place. Had not Gates won at Saratoga, and Washington lost at the Brandywine and at Gerroantown" Schuyler had pre pared the victor In the north. Arnold and Morgan had done the fighting that ecured It. but Gates had obtained the command when all was read, and was willing to receive the reward With a political committee-Congress In charge of affairs, nothing waa lmpossiDie B. of T.

Victor had seen champagne wine be fore, but the sight of a neatly and not gaudily dressed little girl, with big blue ee. drinking the stuff In the middle of the afternoon, was so contrary to the Wichita njatem that fie could scarcely keep his eyes off the pair. Unconscious ly, perhaps, he may have looked startled At any rate this Is what happened The girl, after noting the look Vic gave her. suddenly pushed aside her glas. half-filled with champagne, and ceased to drink, though her companion mlldl upbraided her for so doing Vie has always been a good student of human nature and he thought he could read her reasoning in her face In the first place, she probabl was not a bad little girl, hut had come to the big city from a small town and now for th first time was finding herself being drawn Into an eddy.
