And, if the mental reply as to whether sympathy will beo appreciatoed, l n the aflirmative, it will gain its re ward in the good.will of those to whom It is shown, "Waal, some ways I'd like to an' some ways I guess I wouldn't," 0?ai1 honest Farmer ilentover, when the suave (dispenser of encyclopaedlas had paused in his siren song, "Ye eeo, it I was to sign for that 'ore eyclopedee in forty-seven i)arts, includin' the in. dex an' appendicitis, min sorter afraid I'd hey to work so hard to pay for it tht I'd be too tired to enjoy rea(ld in' it; while if I read it at my leiotre, as I'd ort to, in o...
