There seems to be no end to the things that Mark Twain could do well. When he wrote history, it was a new kind of history, unlike any other except in its ac curacy. When he wrote books of travel, it was an event, and the world sat up and . noticed. He did many things stories, novels, travel, history, essays, humor but behind eacj was the force of a great, earnest, powerful personality, that domi nated his time, so that even then he was known all over the face of the globe. Simple, unassuming, democratic, he was welcomed by Kings, he was loved by plain people. He was a gallant fighter for freedom, for humanity. The simplicity, the kind ly humor, the generosity, the spirituality half revealed, that we like to think is America all these were in Mark Twain. If foreign nations love him, we in this country give him first place in our hearts. The home without Mark Twain is not an American home. The Centennial Half -Price Sale Must Close the people.
