THE WEST SHORE.
A LITTL8 SINN HI!.
Mttle Ooldlooka ut on a orickot at har
mamma's foot, hearing papa read the Bible. He
read all about the Hood, and the ark, and Noah,
and the animals. When papa shut up the

folded thinking very hard.
"The rain fell and fell," she aaid to heraelf,
"and then the ark went into the deep water,
and Noah and his folks and all the oattle and
sheepe went, too. If Jimmy will be Noah, 1
will be Noah's wife, and we oan have the Ut h-
tub for the ark, and the shower-bath will make
rain nough, I guess.
Ooldlooka didn't aay one word out loud, but
she eat there on her orioket, thinking and think
ing. At last after everybody had left the room
she went to look np Jimmy. He waa only four
years old, and (ioldlooki waa aix. You am,
she waa two years older than her little brother,
and ought not to have led him into misohief.
"Want to make a Hood, Jimmy?" asked
"What kind of a fnd?"
"Why, like Noah's! We'll play that all the
folks in the houae are naughty, ami we are good ;
and I 'apoae we might have the canary for a
dove, aud the geranium for an olive-tree to light
on. Come up here to the bath-room, and 1'U

"The wicked folks ought to be in here," she
said, " oauao the good onea didn t got wet.
We'll have the clothes basket lor tbe ark."
Ho Jimmy 0 limbed into tho basket, and (iold
locks turned on the sliower-nain.
"Whore am the bad onos?" asked Jimmy
"We'll have the gray oat for one," said Onld
lucks, "'cause she scratchod me t'other day."
"She acratchad me two, free, aix times,' aaid
Then Ooldlooka oaught tbe gray oat and took
her oldest dollies, and pat them in the Hood.
Jimmy sat in the ark, and laughed and clapped
In hands. Kitty didn't like being a sinner in
the Hood, and ahe strugglod hanl to get out
but the little girl held her down stoutly.
"Jumn oat of tha ark. Jimmy," she said
"and open the bird-cage door; we must have a

Jimmy obeyed, and then ran hack to Ma

ark then waa a splash and a ory, and nothing
waa left of Miss Ooldlooka but her feet sticking
up in the air. She had fallen into the Hoot
