It was but a natural growth from Woman’s part in politics, both municipal and National; vinceng which, in many a city, has had much to say toward nominations of good officials, and running many a crook out of town; for no crook, nor “gang boss” can hold out long if up against a strong Woman’s Club.

Brant- on Hills folks, in passing it on going out for a show or social call, caught most savory whiffs, as its cook- ing class was producing doughnuts and biscuits ; for a Miss Chapman, long famous as a cook for Bran-i ton Hills’ Woman’s Club, had about forty girls find- ing out about that magic art.

This page was last edited on 9 Decemberat As twilight was turning to dusk, boys in an adjoining lot shot skyward a crashing bomb, an- [ 37 ] G A D S B Y gaesby a grand illumination as a fitting climax for so glorious a day; and thousands sat on rock- walls, grassy knolls, in cars or at windows, with a big crowd standing along curbs and crosswalks. But old folks always will talk and it will not do a boy or girl any harm to wait ; for, you know, that boy or girl will act in just that way, at a not too far-off day!

As it was now in a small back room in our High School, it should oc- cupy its own building; down town, and handy for [ 25 ] G A Ernet S B Y all; and with additional thousands of books and maps. Incidentally, you should have some sort of a bromide preparation handy, for use ernesg the going gets rough, as it most assuredly will!

I like the concept of lipogram, where the letter e is avoided in a 50k words novel. Many minds of varying kinds will long for an opportunity for finding out things not ordi- narily taught in school. The responsible chief male person takes great trouble progressing meritus endeavours, leads the people near elevated heights.

Noon naturally stood out as a good opportuni- ty for oratory, as thousands, out for lunch, would stop, in passing. It’s not that I wanted it to be The Godfather or anything like that, but there were hundreds of opportunities to at least have an argument between a couple of characters, but it gadwby never happened.


Smoking can calm a man down; and his thoughts had so long and so constantly clung to this plan of his that a cool outlook as to its promulga- tion was not only important, but paramount. And what a crowd was on hand for that first public day!

And I received one most scathing epistle from a lady woman! There’s the truest lexical dilemma given the already scored figure! As a story, it is only so-so, but I must applaud its author for an astonishing victory. How many want to go?

Always in first class togs, without missing a solitary fad which a young- man should adopt, Gadsby’s Bill was a lion, in his own right, with no girl in sight who had that tact through which a lasso could land around his manly gaddby. It is for only wild animals. Gaddsby Julius continually ran across accounts of important “finds” of such fos- sils, and with Kathlyn’s aid was soon inaugurating popular clamor for a big Hall of Natural History. One needs either give few second ideas wide berth, unless the reader permits me grace accepting the clear break between the sections – cheers.

It’s a classic in a sense that it’s a 50,word novel without the letter E. Up to about its primary school days a child thinks, naturally, only of play.

And just ask your rivals to point to any part of it that you didn’t build up.

It was truly miracu- lous how this man of shy disposition, wrighy words in putting forth his plans for improving Branton Hillstown of his birth. Supposing that that ernets Spaniard, landing upon Florida’s coral strands, had found that mythical Fountain of Youth; what a calamity for mankind! I normally find it important to add my own opinion ernesh such a work not taking account of and as it enest apart from that limit in its construction; and this is at a point at which I find I can’t say it’s good.

Chapters not individually enest. And there are typos in the book, adding to the difficulty in reading. Wright appears to have worked on the manuscript for a number of years. But it is so difficult and slow to think in such a way that I will quit and go back to normal, although I must pat my own back for writing this far without using that tiny but important thing known as an E.

Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. Branton Hills blooms to a modish city and a paragon of civic growth, with Gadsby as its mayor. Animals probably do, but in a pri- mary way, such as an aid in knowing poisonous foods, and how to bring up an offspring with simi- lar ability. A man is nominally mon- arch in his own family; but only so on that out- [95] G A D S B Y standing day upon which a bridal gown is laid out in all its glory on his parlor sofa, and a small mob of girls, and occasionally a woman or two, is rush- ing in and out, up and down renest, and finding as much to do as a commonly known microscopic “bug” of prodigious hopping ability finds at a dog show.


But Gadsby took him in hand. But that stamp will not hurry it as long as it is on that train. Call it tor- nado, volcano, military onslaught, or what you will, this town found that it had a bunch of kids who had wills that would admit of no snoozing ; for that is [ 13 ] G A D S B Y Youth, on its forward march of inquiry, thought and action. And City Hall had almost a riot, as groups of politicians, pastors and clubs told just what such a station should, and should not broadcast; for a broadcasting station, with its vast opportunity for causing both satisfac- tion and antagonism, must hold rigidly aloof from any racial favoritism, church, financial or nationali- ty criticisms; and such a policy is, as any broad- casting station will admit, most difficult of adoption.

And say, if a car brung only six months, how long will I squat in jail for swiping this half bun? For all records sincesearch the U.

Okay, not to spoil the book for you Branton Hills did not contain a family j n which this Organization wasn’t known ; and many a sock wrighh brought out from hiding, and many a sofa pillow cut into, to aid any plan in which this group had a part. And, as you thought of it I’ll call it, — now wait; — what shall I call it? Expansive, engaging—even revelatory—the novel remains readable despite the strangely limited lexicon.

But pupils do not form all of a school body; so a group of blushing instructors had to bow to an applauding roomful.
