    The narrator describes his excursion to Fort Shingles on the 'East Coast'. After arriving at his hotel he is shown to his room and lets out such 'a fearful yawn' that it occurs to him that 'my mouth was becoming as big as [the inhabitants of the town], and that I myself was (Darwinianly) developing into a Shingleite'.
