In Which Paul Bunyan Again Demonstrates
His Superiority Over the Rest of Mankind

W.B.L., of Minneapolis, Minn., calls our attention to the fact that in our epic story of the "Round River Drive" we left Paul Bunyan and his logs still circulating on the Round River. He says:

“Maybe our historical accuracy is obscured by partiality, but somehow we can not associate Paul with the idea of ultimate failure in any of his projects. Consequently we hope that Mr. Malloch, upon deeper research, will find that Paul recovered his logs from Round River.”

Ah, but that is the point! Anybody else would have had to devise some means to get the logs out of the Round River maelstrom in order to get them out. But not Paul Bunyan. He could get 'em out without getting 'em out. That was another remarkable thing about Paul Bunyan.
