Description

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

  • "That a well known young lady was looking for an earthquake last week."
  • "That Miss Cleveland has been a failure as an editor. That she will sever her connection with the Literary Life after the publications of two more numbers. That her brother, the President, does not approve of her course in thus placing herself before the public."
  • "That on the day of the parade one of Boston's best known and highly respected residents kept an open house."
  • "That she entertained the guests, while extra women were hired to pour the tea, and remove the dishes."
