Look at a bad piece of road and a

dry. Study, particularly, the ruts

Never before have bracelets been produced equal to these in richness of finish and
perfection of design. Engraved by the manufacturer's special process which leaves
the gold on the bracelet at the same time producing the Moire effect background that

started next to the ditch or at the

drag the whole road one way, or

direction? Should the dragging be
done when the road is dry, or after

of horses with a well-built drag can
drag about three or four miles of

Poor Daggancourt was terribly cast
down at the news and expostulated
tremblingly, with tears in his eyes. He
was so humble, so quaveringly re restrained,
