eager interest by all present and the re
pented applause proved (lie spirit in which

where a banquet was served. The Menu
was of (lie usual order and was served in
i lie pleasant corteous manner (hat is char
acteristic of the popular hostelry. At

Jiut eat) Judging from the manner in
which the oysters were' ' *y were
mistaken for haughty J among

to be there.
