So Ned gave kitty a bath, and then put her into the nice warm shawl.



pass po’ny whip keep fast’er use go’ing than yours


Hold on, Frank, you are going too fast.  I can not keep up with you.

Use your whip, Fred, and make your pony go faster.  Come up to me and we will have a race.

Well, here we go.  Hurrah, hurrah!  Go on, pony, as fast as you can, and we will catch Frank.

We are going faster now, Frank, and will pass you in the race.  No, Fred, you can not pass me, for my pony can run faster than yours.

Well, we will see if he can.



Who said play hide and seek?

I did, Frank.

Well, shut your eyes, Ned, while we go and hide.

Shall I stand by this tree, boys?

Yes, we will hide, and then you must try to find us.

Well, go and hide.

One, two, three, four, five, six—­look out for me, hoys.

Here I come.  Ha!  I see your black cap, Frank.  Come out of that barn.

I spy you, Roy.  You are hid under the hay; and there is Fred in the box.

Now, Frank, you shut your eyes.

No, Fred, there is my pony, and I am going to take a ride.

Well, I will get my pony, and ride too.  Shall we have a race?

Yes, but my pony can run faster than yours.

If I use my whip, I can keep up with you, and I may pass you.

But there is my sister.  I must go and see her.  What is it, sister?

Please put this shawl over me, Fred. Wrap me up well, for it is pretty cold.

So kitty did not get sick, did she, sister?

O no! kitty is well, but she does not like the bath tub, Fred.
