Etienne But nau-Varilla, and consists of a light torpedo-shaped wood and canvas structure, which completely envelopes the richer, only the bottom half of the wheels boing visible. The contraption, —not/unlike an undersized airship—has a side-door through which the rider enters and mounts his machine. The door is then closed. Mica-windows in front enable the rider to see where he is going. INSIPID PEOPLE. Pale, tired, insipid people almost invariably suffer from indigestion.

All stores stock them at Is 6d a box. 1 9
