Tho ltrclc of expression on his faco, so

But when tho butt of tho topmaBt

my hands nnd tried to balanco It In

J had It I cried to her to slack away;

Again Instructing Maud to slack

In until it balanced nt right angles

tho very opposite was necessary. Mak

You havo worked hard nnd nobly. I

"Not half ho proud ub I am of you,
