that had borne her ail the way from San Francisco was due about T oclock Tho trip was made all right and Miss Elys train arrived in due time It came cr like a cannon ball and the Chicago reporters car was coupled 011 and the run to Chicago begun the newspaper men meantime invad ing tho parlor car in which the lady had rnado the trip Miss Globe Girdlev Appears The cheer of welcome had awakened Miss Bly and when a few niiies had been passed the door of her stateroom opened and into the aisle stepped a youug lady of medium Height her slender willowy figure clothed in a perfect fitting ulster of light check but toned from neck to toe A jaunty half jockey traveling cap fat gracefully en her bead Her coalblack hair was coiled in be coming fashion and her sparkling eyes and her cheeks richly

lookec grand Tlie AllPervading Briton But though Americans were scarce the English were plentiful and from London t San Francisco there were always a few o that nation among my fellowpassengers So I suppose I got rny accent from them But Ill soon get over it Anil tired So not a bit Why th journey has been one great delight If any body wants a vacation trip I can think o no more pleasant way to take it than to fly around the world The Inevitable Question And what do you think of America queried a reporter who had been to interviewing in Sew York fresh arrival from Europe you should have
