himself of every garment except the
one spoken of by Hood in that melan

bare poles, when he hesad a knobk at
the door, and supposing It to be his
man-who ought to hbve seen there,
and was not-he sang out, "Come in."
To his utter consternation that consti

minutes by.theI ock.,snd was veryt fer

when the constitutional Woodhull paus

When a working mpu owqs his home,

would or could feel if he were without
