Quot professional Beauty Queen or Princess who has been photographed As Many times and in As Many different poses is has mrs. Domenico Boitano. In mrs. Brummo s Case it was nothing but a tribute first last and All the time for in each instance Sho was photographed Only because she was Beautiful. Moreover the photographer was a recognized authority of Fetuao Beauty a past grand master of Tho Art of photography a magician of lenses. He was a Pololu a Trouy mrs. You Nunno s first husband. When st Trouy established his photograph gallery in new York he conceived the idea of advertising his business by placing in prominent locations samples of Liis work. There were professional beauties and Hnud some actresses in those Days just As there Are in these Days but Sarony never found a More inspiring subject than his own wife and he used to Delight to make pictures of her in All sorts of artistic attitudes and in All sorts of garb to which her remarkable figure and charming features Best Lent themselves. So if came about that hundreds if not thousands of photographs were taken of mrs. To Nunuo before her first husband died. These photographs extend Over a period of Many years showing mrs. Younano in the flush of youth Ami up to the maturity of her personal charms. They make a remarkable collection that is highly prize by members of her family. Not Only was mrs.

The founding of the Parish dates from 1css, but the present edifice is modern. It was built in 1800. And the Good Man who preached the dedication Sermon described it As a work of stupendous magnitude. It is not however the building which attracts us. But its belongings. Here we see the old prayer Hook with the prayer for the president pasted Over that for the King Tho a vinegar Bible of which Only 40 copies were printed and but five of which Are in the United states. The Bell which Calls the Parish to prayers is a capture from Louisburg. And although twice recast once by Paul Revere Ciuco its voice was heard in its foreign Home it is yet the same old Bell.

As far Back As Tho year 1752 gut turd recognized that the Puy Sof Auvergne were volcanic Cones that had poured Forth streams of lava. But it was reserved to Desmarest 12 years later to examine the question in detail cud to establish the investigation of former volcanic action upon a Broad and Linn basis of careful observation and sagacious inference. To discovered that the volcanoes of Central France were not All of one age. But loud made their App Arauco in a Long series whereof the individual members became less perfect and distinct in proportion to their Antiquity. Whilo these Trail Fol researches were in Progress in France others of hardly less moment were advancing in Scotland. Hutton As a tart of his immortal a theory of the Earth Quot had conceived the idea that much molten material had been injected from la Low into the terrestrial crust and lie had found Many pools of such intrusion among the rocks of his native country.
