New Wrinkle in Love Letters

Writes Message of Devotion on One Sheet of Paper Sixteen Feet in Length

A certain love lorn swain in Fort Dodge has devised a unique method of communication with the lady of his affections. He recently mailed her a gushing epistle descriptive of his hearts emotions, written on a single strip of paper sixteen feet long and containing over 5,000 words. Needless to say that he was compelled, by lack of a sufficient vocabulary, to repeat often such expression as dearest, sweetheart, etc. It is reported that the girl in question was compelled to employ a Webster’s unabridged dictionary to assist her in the reading of the epistle.
