without her inuddcr."
The speaker was n llttlo girl herself,
swinging a much soiled and begrimed
suubonnet by one string, whllu the oth

ungainly man walking by her side.
"And tho little girl," continued tho
man obediently, "walked round and
round the wheat field but could not find
her way out, for all tho wheat was
taller than she, and however much sho
stood on tip toe, sho couldn't see over.
And by nndrly, she lay down to rest
where a harvest mouso had built Its
nest. Shu was tired and hungry, and
oh, so lonely. Hut the wIihIh blew
through the grnln, humming a lullaby,
and the llttlo girl grew sleepier and

child. "Three times. Tell It right,

"And then," said lllrtlloglrl with
