THE GLIMPSES OF THE MOON

famed as the scene of romantic raptures that they were rather

as ours, to risk the experiment," Susy Lansing opined, as they
hung over the inevitable marble balustrade and watched their
tutelary orb roll its magic carpet across the waters to their
feet.

glancing upward through the branches at a long low patch of
paleness to which the moonlight was beginning to give the form

the Chicago flat."
