Whereas, One Is Not Interested In The Girl; She Is Not The Prominent Feature Of The Legend.

Nevertheless, there you are left, and there you must remain; for if you live a thousand years you will never know who got the blanket.

We struck the home-trail now, and in a few hours were in that astonishing Chicago - a city where they are always rubbing the lamp, and fetching up the genii, and contriving and achieving new impossibilities. It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago - she outgrows his prophecies faster than he can make them. She is always a novelty; for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time. The Pennsylvania road rushed us to New York without missing schedule time ten minutes anywhere on the route; and there ended one of the most enjoyable five-thousand-mile journeys I have ever had the good fortune to make.
