which time he was on a Journey to
the Holy Land, Egypt, southern
and western Europe and other
points across the ocean, as well as

New England, northeastern and
central portions of the United
States. He comes home looking
mighty fine and states that he en
joyed to the full every hit of the
time while traveling; was with an
excellent company of people, and
nothing occurred to mar the pleas

has thus gratified an ambition that
steadily grew upon him for many
years, and he believes that such a

of a sheep was sufficient to wrench
his knee, causing him to be laid off
