Well, one evening they found
the Natural History book; lying
open on the library table. On
one side was a page full-of print

was a large picture. They stood
on the bottom margin and peered i
elosely at the picture, which show-'

they left him to pore Over the

Why is a mantel, anway? Like

fireplace, so as to keep lighter
