I almost dropped the receiver In

It took an endless tlmo to make him

oeivor-ho'.dor of my phone In an effort
to attract the operator's attention.
There waa a snap somewhere. The
'phono suddenly became absolutely
dead. It took mo nome time to realize

desk and ran to tbo door.
As I opened it , a cub was creeping

I tola her , clenching my b.inds , knit
