you have to show  t lem, and this bunch
lerefuse to be shown, they       were all

what East St.  ouis is.  the Avenue the-

I eret to saly that so far it doesn't look

of the fact that no pains or expense ire

Last, but not least, comes Columbus (no
relation to Christopher), although she has
made some discoveries: she has discovered
lowt to sit gracefully on a horse, how   to
look pretty while there, althougl nature
helped her wonderfully; she has also dis-
covered a beautiful horse and how to train
and dres him, and above all she has dis-
covered how to entertain the public.
