The Danbury man visited a "baronial hall" in Norfolk, England, and had his first view of a tapestried wall: On one portion of the wall, at the stairs, was ft piece of tapestry. I think the word tapestry is suggestive of luxu- ry, taste, rciinenient and wealth. "Walls hanging with tapestry." I suppose I have read that sentence a thousand times during a life actively devoted to the pe- rusal of fiction. This was tho first tapes- tried wail I bad seen. It was right b store me and it made me sick. The bit of wall was about twelve feet square, and the tapestry was about two thirds of that size. The wall was of wainscot, acd the tapestry was tacked to it. It had not been cut with any ac- curacy, and its edges were fraying. It was held by large tacks, and their great heads protruded and stood out as promi- nently as mud on patent leather boots. I said to tho butler: "What is that carpet nailed up there fat on the wall'.' or is it to keep out the yon, no sir; that's tapestry.
