doubt if many survive the mental strain attendant upon the
preparation of five lessons a week.

has to thank him for a beautiful new gas fixture with the
biler room" trade mark on it.
Gillespie can make more bad breaks in talking and not
know anything about it than anyone else we are acquantcd
with. When, after healing him talk to some girls for an hour

"I'm the ghost of John J. Benjamin Christopher Binns,
