CHAPTER III.

THE TIMELY ORACLE.

A year passed by. Caruthers dozed with his cob pipe between the fingers of his limp hand, waiting for clients whose step was not heard upon the stairs.

I love Opie Reed and have read all his books. They are all light-hearted, romantic stories and I recommend them all equally. The title of this book can be mis-leading as you might think Old Ebenezer is about an old man, but that is actually the name of the town. The story is about a man in an new town starting a new career and through a unique twist mistakenly gets married. Very entertaining!
