but for prudence nnko I keep my mobl

"How long bavo you licen in making

for his vast collection Mr. Guntber must
Imvo expended in nil more than half a
million dollars. Pcrhapj this is too
high, but with thousands upan thou
sands of articles which have cost from
$1 to $1,000, tho aggregate Mini must, in
