story of mastering of a mighty 'ijues

Mr. Blythe departed. Then the com

the mastery as advertised and no Port

was sent to the Post and Its manage

about - Portland " which would do this

task but he had pot collected the neces

and do all the other tricks the cow-

without divulging the secret of their
sex or even arousing suspicion, and
