" What is this `hike'?" I asked, greatly curious. He replied:
" It is a long and rapid walk to some distant spot. To-day they have been to the top of Purple Mountain."

I was greatly surprised to hear this. It seems to me this life of ours can certainly be considered wholly modern and independent of old restraints. The garden wall is merely for privacy. It would not be fitting for any vegetable vendor or passing candy seller to peer at us. I thought:
" What will she do in the courtyards, then?"
