the farther back we manage to wiggle the more we need the loan1
of a lens to see as much as the hen saw. Tip.2
    You is feeling like you was lost in the bush, boy? You says: 3
It is a puling sample jungle of woods. You most shouts out:4
Bethicket me for a stump of a beech if I have the poultriest no-5
tions what the farest he all means. Gee up, girly! The quad gos-6
pellers may own the targum but any of the Zingari shoolerim7
may pick a peck of kindlings yet from the sack of auld hensyne.8
    Lead, kindly fowl! They always did: ask the ages. What bird 9
has done yesterday man may do next year, be it fly, be it moult,10
be it hatch, be it agreement in the nest. For her socioscientific11
sense is sound as a bell, sir, her volucrine automutativeness right12
on normalcy: she knows, she just feels she was kind of born to13
lay and love eggs (trust her to propagate the species and hoosh14
her fluffballs safe through din and danger!); lastly but mostly, in15
her genesic field it is all game and no gammon; she is ladylike in16

down together publicly flank upon fleece. No, assuredly, they are23
not justified, those gloompourers who grouse that letters have24
never been quite their old selves again since that weird weekday25
in bleak Janiveer (yet how palmy date in a waste's oasis!) when26
to the shock of both, Biddy Doran looked at literature.27
    And. She may be a mere marcella, this midget madgetcy, 28
Misthress of Arths. But. It is not a hear or say of some anomo-29
rous letter, signed Toga Girilis, (teasy dear). We have a cop of30
her fist right against our nosibos. We note the paper with her31
jotty young watermark: Notre Dame du Bon Marché. And she32
has a heart of Arin! What lumililts as she fols with her falli-33
mineers and her nadianods. As a strow will shaw she does the34
wind blague, recting to show the rudess of a robur curling and35
shewing the fansaties of a frizette. But how many of her readers36
