out of hii shop on Third avenue this
morning, Fahrenheit in hand. There was
perfect Icok of combined horror and
amazement in Fiebis's countenance. He

Of a solomn truth, Fiebis's shop need
not have been so terrifically hot as it
was, though the temperature has been

Fiebig had used as a receptacle for old
