ny about the cuffs. The derby hat--and in October, in Wellmouth, derby hats are seldom worn--the derby hat was new and of a peculiar shade of brown; it was a little too small for its wearer's head and, even as Raish looked, a gust of wind lifted it and would have sent it whirling from the car had not Mr. Bangs saved it by a sudden grab. Raish chuckled.

"Come pretty nigh losin' somethin' overboard that time, didn't you?" he observed.

Mr. Bangs pulled the brown derby as far down upon his head as it would go.

A wonderful story of an "absent-minded professor" archeologist, and the sensible landlady who take him in hand.

An absolutely delightful book; funny and clever, but also a sweet, gently romantic tale.
