The Keersburg House was like other small country hotels, only more so. There was the same old wet place on the office ceiling by it you could tell the exact situation of the wash stand ia the sleeping room above; the same cheap, spring-balance clock, surrounded by crude ly lettered glass signs telling travelers to go to Livermare fc Bacon for fine meats, Peleg Hos teller fur fine livery, Steve Hanking for fine fur niture and undertaking, and Tom Hawk for choice wine, liiUnrs and 1 5Jba pool.
