I'M THE GUY who borrows
your garden tools and returns them
all broken and rusty. '
Why should I bother to repair
them, or pay to have them fixed
when I know YOU'LL have to have
them fixed before you can use
The breakage is a risk you run
when you lend them to vine. You
might have broken them yourself, so',
what's the difference.
And as for the rust, that's on 'em
because I left them out in the rain
instead of either taking them in the
house or returning them to you
when I finished using them. I
might have wiped them off with
kerosene before I brought 'em back,

V. How can city children study
nature, except in books?
There is a good deal of "nature"
in the city, if one looks for.it. The
parks have trees and birds and some
flowers. Many streets have trees,

himself king. Because of this
insurrection Mercury was sent
against him with a large army,
took him captive and cut off
