the grandest in the world.
Cincinnati suburbs ars on Dm
tops, m, they ara died, am! extend
lor mile, .round the city Ito. > are
ways of getting up on the b 1-lop*.
One I» an ordinary incline rai way.
the platforms of some of which are so
la^e that a street car and a .ample
of horses drive right on it and is waft
ed to the skies, ami when the car get»
up there it goe» along for eight or ten
miles out in the oouotry. Another
way of reaching the suburb* is hy the
ordinary cable car. which winds up
to the hill-tops by following streets
that zig-zag their way up the eleva- 1
ti oll .
I askisl a number of Cincinnati men
which flw principal suburb was, and
it aeoinml to lie g<*nerally agreed that
Clifton wo» the best for a stranger to
•eeu. The [«articular cable line I pat
ronized took me a«-rosa Clifton ave
uue. and there I got off.
Cllftou is an aristocratic suburb that
Is conducted u# a sort of siiburlian
club. No person is allowed to got a
lot there who Is not acceptable us a
.neighbor to the rest of the residents,
and when he do«*» get a lot he must
build a house that will cost over a cer
taln amount and comply with u lot of
ruh-s and regulations all tending lo
make the place very exclusive, and
all that.
Clifton avenue Is a wide street, kept
ln perfect conditon, and is bordered ou
each side by fine trees. It run# straight
along fur a bit, then drops down Into
a valley, rises on the other side unira
paired, winds along for a long distance
and Iben amun» to come to an abrupt

and as 1 set my camera there came '

of merry, well-dressed rhlldren who

"Please, mister, won't you photo

"Are you going to take Mr. Bank's |)BW
'■And may we stand here and be in j
the picture?"
"Oh. IMimk you."
At this moment the voice of proprie

the vine-shaded veranda from soin-'

proueh was uttered the one word -

Now. tho thing that got me into
! trouble at Clifton wit# the distaste I
1 have for twice going over the «»me
' road. 1 did not want lo go back to
] Cincinnati over the cable line that I h
Imd coine out on. I thought I would
walk through the place and that I t
would come to some other line and go
in that stay and thus sec more of the d)
nirroundliig country.

| church. Filially 1 met some one and
said to him:
"How far is It to a street-car lin«?" c
"Oh. you're going the wrong way.
Tiie cable-ears are a few mites in the
ilhi-r direction.
"Yes, I know. I came that way nod j
I want to go bark another."
"That's your best way bock to town.
I don't know how far it is to another
line this way. Five miles. I guess."

a ,o I tram|>od along. The next |ierson
I accosted made it four miles and a
half, and the next four miles. 1 was

shape and so was satistied.
Clifton avenue came to an abrupt
I and untimely end, and the
street that branched off
