1909. From the author of Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch. The story begins: I hope your passenger n't missed his train, observed the ferryman to Mr. Jimmy Fallows, who sat on the river bank with the painter of his rickety little naphtah launch held loosely in his hand. Mr. Opp? said Jimmy. I bet he did. If there is one person in the world that 's got a talent for missing things, it's Mr. Opp. I never seen him that he had n't just missed gettin' a thousand dollar job, or inventin' a patent, or bein' hurt when he had took out a accident policy. If he did ketch a train, like enough it was goin' the wrong way. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
