Description

In this edition of "They Say," Bert Islew informs her readers, among others,

  • "That James G. Blaine Jr., youngest son of Hon. James G. Blaine was married to the daughter of Col. Nevins, of Ohio, two weeks ago."
  • "That a certain young man entered a certain hotel and wanted neither dinner nor a room. He only wanted to arrive. That it had been a long time since he arrived at a hotel."
  • "That it would be a good idea for the colored people to erect a few monuments, to the memory of heroes of the race."
  • "That the Selika Concert at Newport last week was artistically a great success. That not a very substantial financial benefit was reaped."
