'GALLI VAN T' is welcome, and will be 'welcomer' when he again visits us in another letter like this: DEAR CONTINENTAL: I have a friend who is not an artful man, though he be full of art; and yesterday evening he told me the following: 'In my early days, when I took views of burly farmers and their bouncing daughters in oil, and painted portraits of their favorite horses for a very moderate honorarium, and in short, was the artist of a small country town why, then, to tell the truth, I was held to be one of the greatest painters in existence.

The copper is after you." A woman's figure rushed stumbling across the way and into the shadow of the houses, pursued by a burly policeman. "Ah, but if that's part of the price?"

As he went down, the rush from the direction of the village green came round the corner. The first to appear was the proprietor of the cocoanut shy, a burly man in a blue jersey. He was astonished to see the lane empty save for three men sprawling absurdly on the ground.
