London and Parish Ive invited her exhibit. Her work 1 requested from scientific societies and publications in both England and America. Her collection of Micro ectopic photographs is among tie greatest in. The country one has everything from a close up of the immortal a Cootie Quot to a giant reproduction of a Cricket s Gizzard. But Ehe is not a Stern austere priestess of science. works a and lives for a the fun of the and hero is her Story. 4, a by e. Cipal study in Photomicrography. And to be a scientifically successful photo to Micrograph or one must he a botanist chemist photographer biologist and what not. Miss Bootle is All of these und a dozen More. It a not generally known that it was site that helped the government to rid tie country of the Buo Only plague. It wan she alone who at the request of surgeon general Blue photographed the plague ideas on the rats in san Francisco. It was these photographs that taif general used in the extermination of the plague. Miss Booth will not Tell you these j things however. You must discover Iscem for yourself. She will smile gently and Tell you what a wonderful old world this is. Boredom we rut he Are in comprehend Luibl to her. Joy is the Motif of her life. And n member she is 77. Quot i do not understand Why old folks got so indifferent to life. My existence has never been so. My work has always brought Joy and enthusiasm. Have lived and worked As the Noys would say for the fun o the almost at her feet by the fringe of i of surf a woman intent on some seaweed. It seemed strange at first that on should turn Back to sea and sky for Tome tangled seaweed on the Sand. She talked with the Friend of the sea j Quot and when i see Chance to one i am a Cricket thinking of ten his sound unusual treasures among her photographs afe the Connecticut state militia before the revolutionary War. He enlisted in 1775 and served throughout the struggle. Miss Booth a father Samuel Cotton Booth was a Well known mineralogist almost every country in the world i fing represented in his Large collect in of minerals. This he left to the museum of natural history in Springfield. The collection was so Large that it took eight j spine of the sea Urchin the Cross Sec two horse wagons to transport it to the married men greatest heroes says novelist there a a seat in the very last Row. Please take it or. Bachelor. Unmarried men Aren t the heroes of today. The medals for bravery All go to the husbands. Maxwells views Pouch at any rate 1� the idea of w. A Maxwell the Well known English writer who Snye it la curious How one still meets traces of the old superstition that bachelors Are a More reckless splendid race Luan married men. Above All there lingers that notion that your hardened Bachelor snatches from life a fearful Joy because of his disregard of danger his daredevil spirit. He probably believes it himself he certainly Fosters the belief in others. Yet what can he More absurd ? Forsooth when. O stands confessed it having shirked he most Fackles thing that a Man ran do that la gelling a married the bravest words of a Bachelor Are a hang the expend a a but what a worry figure a Cut oven when tested by the essential measure of today the Money Standard. No it 1� he married Man who really a gees it a a doing things every Day and thinking nothing of them that would frighten an Ordinary Bachelor out of his wits. Consider the picture of the Ordinary married Man with his wife and children. He pays and looks pleasant. If he hesitated a moment those dear one w Ould lose their Happy Trust in him they would think he Hud failed a hem his glorious legend would be gone. And observe that in ids ease unlike that of the Bachelor the legend is a real live thing based on fact. Once to was a Bachelor himself with just enough for one. Then there came to him the stupendous thought of making it enough for two and As Many More As Providence chose to bless him with. By taking All risks resorting to desperate measures in regard to toil endurance push Folmsb he must fill the huge monetary deficit. And he has done it. He has walked with a Cool head and smiling face on the precipice of financial ruin while the Bachelor wan making up his diary of Petty Cash and tamely guarding a competence in the shelter of colourless safety. The gambling spirit if you judge. It by that Good gracious the married man1� life is one terrific Gamble he is playing for the highest Slakes nil the time for life or death the happiness or misery of himself and everybody dependent on him. No certainly not. The husband and fathers Are tha daredevils of today. A miss Mary a.

And miss Booth knows what health and happiness Means. For she is one of the very few who at last discover the Bright Side of that at once terrible and Beautiful contrast. With her the fates reversed the theme of their drama. A spider the Gizzard of a Cricket the tips of the Wilrigs of various mosquitoes the Eye of the spider and countless other.

A i have spent the greater part of my Al life with my Microscope Quot she tells you. Each discovery a new revelation this is what miss Booth will talk about the Joy of living.

In 1877 she purchased her first Corn round Microscope. Since then Sho has been working arduously and persevering a in. Her we of k is one that deman is in Lin to toil and infinite pains.
