Transcript mitted, and no doubt serviceable; but of such assorted periods, or no period at all, as to make it clear that style and fashion had to no degree been followed. Old stuff: but still, what scrubbing brush and mop, bright paint, dull varnish, loving care could do, the people there had done. And it came over us that somehow about that house, in those soft colored, painted rooms warmly lighted by the daylight streaming through bright curtains, was an atmosphere of peace that was sweet to breathe. "Style? Period?" said one of us later; "Doesn't the honest taste of the John Smiths expressed in all they own achieve a homogenity that is as much entitled to be called a style as what a lot of craftsmen happen to have done under some king? John Smith or Louis Quinze: I choose John Smith". "And now", said John Smith presently, "let me show you what / did in this house". And he led us down one step into a large room, clearly a new extension of the older house. Enameloid Flame Red An S.W.P. Spanish Orange Door There was a fireplace in the center of a long wall, and windows were on three sides. "No, I didn't do that", said Smith as we stared out southwards at the view. We turned, he pointed up. "That ceiling; I cut the oaks for the timbers right here on the place, hewed them myself with a broad ax. That second big timber there: It was in August and hot. I was stripped naked to my drawers. When the tree fell I saw there was a wasp's nest up in the top branches, for they'd all come out and were flying around. I went off for a way and waited for them to settle down again. Sure enough, they did. So, thinking it would be safe to lop the lower limbs I took a last look at the nest, and seeing that all was quiet raised my ax and struck. The wasps, thick as a cloud, swarmed out. It didn't take them long to locate me—nor me to start. I raced through tangled underbrush, I tacked, I veered, I leapt over fallen trees, I picked the densest thickets and plunged into them and through and on again. Yes, I got home. It was a dead heat between the leading wasps and me. But they weren't as tired as I was; they had picked up a ride". Yes, John Smith loved his home. It must be grand to live among such memories! Glenlough, Meenacroos, P. 0., Glencolumcille, County Donegal, Ireland: That's a long address for one little three room peasant house all but lost in the vasl^ environment of moorland. "It is the last place along the coast", they told us. So on foot, over the thousand foot headlands, through bog and riven turf, we went; and standing at last on the rim of the wide valley of Glenlough sought with our eyes—and found—the little speck of white that was the solitary cottage. Long before we had completed our arduous descent Dan Ward and Mary saw us; and as we made our way across the meadow flat they came out-doors and stood to welcome us, two strangers. 23
