"A law could be passed in the State Legislature forbidding the display of all advertising signs in public places in this county," he suggested. The boy looked at him eagerly.

Stopping to refresh himself at a tavern near Koevorden, he found himself in the tap-room in presence of Quartermaster Blau and a company of soldiers from the garrison.
