The chief objection which we had to it was that it was one of a row of eight, all exactly alike, and it was extremely difficult to be sure of the right door. A week's practice, however, made that all right; ours was the fourth house from the acuth end of the row; as I walked from ihe office along the street immediately south of us I soon became accustomed to taking tho exact number of steps, after turning the corner, which would bring me to the door. Besides the hour at which I came home (I am a proofreader on a morning paper and my duties usually kept me at the office until after 3 a. in.) made it necessary for me to carry a latch-key.
