Slie confesscd herself '-oue ofïIüfijaAT'H fools ;" was pathetic in lier deer scène, lmmorous in her ralmlcry of Sameua Tubsbr, Zbke Bowbs, and Annt ÜAnAii - excelling, as we Iieard a jealous lady remark, h3r owu natural self ; roluminous if not tcdious on mielgos, mutjqiietoes, and black llies, sweet on flap jacks and maplc syrup, ainl "loyal" on John Bbowb With all tliis, there was littlc abuut the Ailirondacks, and ;uiy otlicr piece of woods ■would have forincd a peg on whicli to hang her narrativo.
