I should say it. If ho did nul sho would
accept young bpoonay. hho had
heard, of lata, that Mr. Softhoort was
"a llirt." Unhappy man, ho always

It was not his fault that whon ho told
Miss Bluebird that "ho did not cave
for an aviary one bird iu a cago was

or that, Lily Bloom being tho objuct

And Angelina tiptood with barefoot

Biddy meanwhile had recognized
