Alice k a New Wonderland The Same “Alice” Who Fell Doivn a Rabbit Hole lOYears Ago and Landed in “Wonderland” Has Visited America and Written This Added Chapter on Her New Adventures. By Alice Hargreaves—/A<? Alice of “Alice in Wonderland” » As Told to Her Son, Capt. C. 'L. Hargreaves J J pv EAUTIFULLER and beautiful * * | j ler!” cried Alice (she was so lost in admiration that for the | J moment she quite forgot how to speak good English) as soon as all the animals let her go to the front of the boat and see the view coming into dock. “Now the buildings are opening out like the largest telescopes that ever were! Why, it’s quite a different place from when I was here last. But then, that is quite a long time ago, and things do change so quickly these days, don’t they?” she added—for she had just caught sight of the White Rabbit ap proaching. “Not so quickly as I’ve got to change if I’m going to be in time for the Duchess’ party,” said the White Rabbit, looking at his watch and skurrying away. Alice had just been beginning to think it was rather dull not having anybody to discuss all the new sights with, when the boat stopped against a sandy cliff, and before she could get out she was surrounded by a fresh lot of animals, which all wanted to ask her questions at the same time. Half of the animals were different from the others. These had five legs, and their square faces had only one round opening in the middle, which seemed to be eyes, nose and mouth all in one. They were very tame and came quite close and then began opening their mouths (or eyes, Alice wasn’t quite sure which to call them) and saying: “Look this way, please,” and “Smile, please, Mrs. Hargreaves,” and then shut ting their mouths again quickly. Alice did as she was told, because she had been brought up to do so, but after a time they could not open their mouths any more, so she turned to the other animals. These also were quite tame as soon as they got a little encouragement, but she found that they were more interested in her past history than in her present ap pearance, which had been the chief con cern of the camera-animals. So when she had answered all their questions, Alice was allowed to go and look at th« view. After a time, however, K got ad late that she thought she would have to start a caucus race round the ship witQ the finish at the top of one o£ tfr# taliaaft
