A, DID YOU tie that rooster outside our windie, so as We can be
sure and get up early?" yelled Mrs. Mundy from upstairs.
"Shore I did. Air you all ready Ier bed? You know it's a
long ways to thet city."
"Yes, Pa. Marthy has done gone to bed and I air a lixin' to go. Put
the cat out and lock the doors," called Mrs. Mundy.
"Foolish people, always huntin'su1npin' fer you to do. If it ain't the
cat it's the door," thought Mr. Mundy. "lN7here in the thunderation is
thet danged ole cat? Kitty, kitty, kitty, nice kitty," called Mr. Mundy,
going from the kitchen to the parlor.
"Charles, fer the land sakes, what air you yellin' at? I put Torn out
an hour ago," put in Mrs. Mundy at the head of the stairs.
Next morning, at sunrise, Mr. and Mrs. Mundy and Martha were all
ready to go to the city.
"Marthy, bring the lunch, and, Pa, you lock the doors. Did you put
any water in the engine? W e don't want to have to stop at the creek to
fill it up."
"Yes, everything is ready. Come on and let's get started. Marthy,
you get in the back seat," replied Mr. Mundy With a hurried gesture.
"Marthy, you do nothin' of the sort. I'n1 goin, to sit back there and
hold my umbrellie over me like Mrs. VVheeler does, only, a nigger drives
her around," put in Mrs. Mundy as she pulled Martha from the back seat.
Mr. Mundy hnally drove up in front of a large department store.
"You can't stop here, Pa. It's in front of one of them things you plug
fires with and our teacher told us thet it Wasn't allowed in big cities," Warned
"Oh, all right. I'll go over yonder."
. "Pa, do you think I ought to get me a new hat? I got this here one

"All right, do as you please. I'll see about the tires While you're gone."
"Charles Mundy, you'll do nothin' of the sich. You stay right in this
car and watch the lunch," said Mrs. Mundy crossly. '
Mrs. Mundy, with her head held high and holding her umbrella straight
in the air, marched in the store, with Martha trailing along behind. Mrs.
Mundy Walked up to the salesgirl and demanded: "I want to see some shoes
fer Marthy and a hat fer myself and I Want to see everything else 1,111 aiinin'

For only a short time it seemed as though I traveled in a different world
with this lovely family, sharing their joys, sorrows and excitements. VV hen
I finally arose from my chair I was startled to hear the hall clock strike the
hour of two, thus discovering that I had been reading for almost four hours.
How different everything seemedg the Weather no longer had a gloomy
effect upon me, and the wind seemed to Whistle a challenge for me to come
outside for a frolic, but my book and the fireside beckoned to me.
Throwing another log on the fire, I settled myself comfortably to enjoy
the remainder of the afternoon among my book friends, with nothing to cut
into my thoughts but the merry crackling of the burning logs and the Whist-
ling of the wind around the corners of the house. .

The one I love has gone away,

For she it20'Zlld1'L,l stay with the ice and snow,
And the winter that grips as here.
Bal slze'll return when the 'Lee has gone,
Iflfhea the dll'lS1l8S replace the snow,
When showers come and the birds sing,
And warm are the winds that blow.

The rzame of my love 'ls Sjnrlng.

"You will have to go up on the sixth floor for those things. And please
put your umbrella down, people cannot get by you," said the salesgirl in a
very polite manner.
"Humph, the nerve of some people, telling you what to do. Come,
Marthy, we'll go up to the sixth landing."
Mrs. Mundy went up to another salesgirl and asked, "Could you show
me and Marthy the steps that go up to the sixth landing?"
"VV e can't use the steps to the sixth floor, they're being repaired. But
you can go up on the elevator," was the reply. ,
"VVell, What's that thing?"
"Come on, and I will put you on it," said the salesgirl.
"No, I guess I'll just walk up the stairs. I won't get in a elevati I don't
know anything about!"
"But, lady, you can't use the steps that go to the sixth lloor. You'll
have to go up on the elevator," replied the salesgirl.
"Well, all right. Come on, Marthy. But let me tell you something,"
shaking her linger in the salesgirl's face, wif I get myself killed I am sure
goin' to sue you!"
The girl started the elevator only to stop it at a scream frorn Mrs.
"You stop this thing this minute! Elevati! I-Iit's a suicide car, that's
what hit is," cried Mrs. Mundy. "Come on, Marthy, we're going to get

Mrs. Mundy finally calmed down and listened to reason. "VVell, if I

The girl stopped the car on the sixth lloorg Mrs. Mundy and Martha
stepped out. The former called back: "If you think I'm goin' to ride back
in that elevati you're crazy. I'll walk down. Why you made ninety miles
an hour comin' up here."
Mrs. Mundy purchased what she wanted and went to the window and
called: "Pa, come up here and git me."
But the noise of the trafic prevented Mr. Mundy from hearing her call
for help. A salesgirl came to her and told her that she could get down only
by the elevator.
