The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 l rougf) Jfatfjer dime ' s; spectacles; What is this group of children? Ah, yes, they are youngsters " prepping " for Abbot at a boarding nursery. Aren ' t they a jolly lot! There seems to be one little girl, extremely tall for her age, and rather thin, but quite a ring leader. Oh! it ' s Sydna! Who are these two rolling pudgies underfoot, quarreling lustily over a ball? Surely not Dyer and Amesse! Here ' s a sociable group by the little piano in the corner. Now that ' s a child with real talent — see, she even plays with all her fingers. Did you say she was called " Hen " ? That active young miss dancing from side to side is certainly rapid in turning the pages of that upside-down hymnal! I think she is Dot Spear, if I am not mistaken. Here comes little Mim with a hammer! Can she be a disturber of the peace? Why, the little dear, she is merely tapping every hard object with a gentle rap-rap-rap! But no! she mustn ' t hit that bottle of red ink! Stop her! — It ' s too late! Look! we must stop that reddish stream from dripping on baby Jane Graves ' head! Her mother will be hysterical to find a red-headed infant on her return! Now here ' s a dear, with an alphabet book on her lap; listen to her lisping " I. O. U., U. O. I. " ! Little Hat has no idea how much she ' ll have to do with these three interchangeable letters! Look at that bunch! If it isn ' t pretty little Ruth Harvey and Puss — yes, and I believe I see Prip and Decern, dressed up in the nurses ' hats and coats, playing papa, mamma, and family on the window-seat. Just listen to those blue- eyed Twins cooing on the same note of delight! And young Lee and tiny Ginnie giggling as much as they can! And now, did you ever see such charming sport? See little Gertie rocking contentedly on that hobby horse, and Squeeze " woofing " her toy terrier at the stirrups! There ' s Jerry tossing a rubber ball, twice as large as she, into the scrap- basket. This is rather a dangerous sport — That is wee Peggy Creelman behind the gate on the stairs playing post office. My! isn ' t that other child happy to receive so many letters! Did you say she was Bea? So this is Lucy jumping from design to design on the rug. Isn ' t she an active youngster! Why look at little Nancy flirting with Phillip out the window! But see! some youngster is banging the dinner gong in the hall! Well, if it isn ' t Polly, just able to reach it! Watch them all rush down to their luncheon. This little dawdler will surely miss the blessing ! You ' d better hurry, Ellen ! 43
