So I gave up hooks and took up little time and labor saving articles in the way of egg beaters , potato parers , can openers and cheap little article...

As swiftly as a reach of still water is crisped by the wind the rock strewn ridges and scrub topped hills were troubled aud alive . with armed men . Mercifully it occurred to tiiese to stand far off for n time , to shout aud gesticulate joyously . One man oven delivered himself of a long story . The camel corps did not fire . They were only too glad for a little breathing space until some sort of square could be formed .
