THE TALE Or
A Breakfast Lost.
When Farmer Green's cat looked
iround and discovered that Grand
father Mole had disappeared from
the garden a puzzled look came over
Tier face. She couldn't think where
he had gone in just a few seconds.'
Hut she knew then why Mr. Crov
had 'laughed. And she was no?
pleased. ; '
"Where is he," she asked .fr
C row. "You interrupted via at ,my
breakfast and now I've lost if." i
' Mr. Crow . was rocking hack and
1'ortli on his perch, for jt joke on
, nnj-'jody cM'cpt .himself always de
lighted lr'm. '
'Grandfather Mole i right lierc in
the jtarden," ,e declared. . -
v"'l'hcn he tntift have hidden be
iicath a vegetable," the cat observetj.
' "t shouldn't say that, exactly," Mr.
Crow replied. "
"How far away is he?" the cat
demanded. ' '
"That would be hard to tell," Mr.
Crow answered. '
Farmer Green's cat had ne.'er liked
Mr. Crow, for no particular reason.
And now she certainly had a, very
' special reason for being angry with
him. v . '
"It's all y6ur fault," she scolded.
"If you hadn't spoke to tne I'd never
The whole affair amused Mr.'
have taken my eyes off Grandfather j
Mole. . . . The least yon can do,
sue added, "is to tell me this instant,

reminded her. "He's here in the
..garden. Find him if you can!" , ' ; ,
Af that Farmer Green's cat began
ip-riln up and down between the
rows of yegetabjes. IJut she had no
luck at' alt. So after a while, she
came back and told Mr.. Crow hat
, she didn't believe him.
"Tut. tut!" said Mr. Crow. "You
haveti't looked in the right place.''
,; "I've searched the whole garden!'!
the eat cried. ' s, ,
' "Oh. nof Mr, Crow exclaimed.
"You've looked only on top of the
ground. II you want to find Grand
father Mole you must -look beneath
The f( was ceatly. disappointed
when she heard that, ;
"You don't 'mean tp sav that l,ie
. went into a hole, do you?" she asked.
' "I do," Mr. Crow declared. ,
"l don't see one anywhere,", she
said. "If I had I'd have been more
careful how. I let him run about." ,
"Ah!" said, Mr, i Crow. T see you
don't khow'that Grandfather Mole
always carries a hole around with
him, wherever he goes; He believes
in having one handy in case of sud
den need.", ;
"1 didn't see it," the cat told him
f 'Ot course not!" Mr. Crow agreed.
"How could you see a hole until'. it's
. put in a certain place, readv to-;us?"
Well, the, cat was puzzled. vSome-
, flow she couldn't "quite". ? understand
Mr.i Crow's ''remarks. And yet there
seemed some Sense in thepi, too. But
she pretended that she understood,
because she didn't want him to think
she' was stupid. And without thank
ing him for his explanation (for she
was still angry) she tum'ed and went
off towards .hc meadow. -
. The whole affair" amsed;- .Mr.
Crow greatly. It kepbJhini in a gocAi
.-humor all that day. And he went
about telling everybody how Grand
father Mole had dug himself out o
sight in the garden, almost under, the
cat's nose. , ! . .' . .

happened. . - v, , '1. 'v-"
