the note hunself," said Mr. Tumulty.
"He is an expert typewriter."
"Did any stenographer or clerk m

Opinion Would Be Speculative.
"Have you any information as to

No need to ask the department

blamed for all things, even for the
scarcity of coyotes in Wyoming.
However, dress patterns are made of
paper, and paper has doubled in cost
since the war began, so that may be
the answer. Women who were ac
