Many American Citleg Suggest Age

Looking jack on It nil, I realize
that America never struck me ns u

often seemed to be a new people,

The cities .are more mature than the
citizens. Nnjv York-, Chicago, Boston,

To thq eyeof the ordinary Engllsh-
street, New York would not nppear
to be a younger place than London,

as older. Nor Is London more than
a little oldeivVvcept In spots, such as
yie Tower, anil the Temple and the
Abbey and that little Tudor row In
llolborn, all separated by vast tracts
Indeed, I would nlmost go further
and say that London sets up nn Il
lusion of being newer even than New
York, by reason of its more disturbing
street trafllc both In the roads und on
the footways, and the prevalence of
the gnyly colored omnibus which thun
ders along so many thoroughfares, In
uotnble contrast to the sedate and
sober vehicles that serve Fifth avenue
and are hardly seen elsewhere.
