"This is My Garden," Said the Lite Boy
Lucy's Boat Ride
Uf 9f 8r
. VE day Lucy Atterbury com-
menced to cough and sneeze, and
she continued coughing and
snerzing, so her mother sent for the
family physician, who said: "I think
that girlie of yours, Mrs. Atterbury, has
the whooping cough. She can not go to
school at present, and perhaps she can
not go until next September."
"O! Dearie! Dearie! Me!" cried
Lucy, "what will I do with myself for
so many w eary weeks. I dearly love to
go to school, and I dearly love to play
with my little girl friends."
"I know how hard it will be for you,
little girlie," said the land old physician,
"but the weather is quite moderate
most of the time, so on clear days you
can take your doll for a ride in her go-
cart and you can go jolting in your
pushmobile, and there are lots of things
ytra can do, because the medicine I
am going to have yon take will prevent
you from feeling ill. Then, too, if there
are any children around here who have
had the whooping cough, perhaps they
will play with you.
"But doctor, if I just say I have a
bad cold and am not going to school
until I am cured the children will play
with me, and then I won't feel so lone-
Jy," said Lucy.

That wouldn't be honorable, Lucy,"
said the physician. "You must not al
low your little friends to rim any risks;
it's no fun to have an attack of whoop
ing cough. Say 'my doctor thinks I've
fot a cold which is going to turn into
whooping cough, so you'd better run
home tnd ask your mamma if you've
ever had it and if they have any objec
tions to me playing with you.' "
Lucy was indeed sorry that she was
not going to be allowed to attend school,
and she hoped very much she was just
suffering with a bad cold. But in a few
days she began coughing so continually
and to violently that there wasn't a par-
ticvle of doubt in any one's mind that
she had the "horrid whoopcrs," as she
Her playmates were very few, but she
made the best of her trouble, as every
one should always do, and the doctor
told her when he came to see her on
Monday that she might take a boat ride
up to Philadelphia if her mamma could
spare the time to take her, "and be sure
and keep away from any other chil
dren who may be on the boat," he
Oh ' how dcliehted I.ucv was with the
idra of srK.nding ,uch an enjoyable day
after being so lonely, and her mother,
seeing her so joyous, rejoiced with her,
and in a few davs took her for the
Knt riHe on the Delaware river. It was
a hrantifiil sunshinv morning, and
Lucy and her mother spent most of the
lim nn the second deck.
And the little girlie made some ac
quaintances, because there was a family
of children taking the ride who were
also just recovering from the whooping
When the, boat reached Philadelphia
Lucy and ber mother first walked up
Arch street and they saw Benjamin
Franklin's grave in an old burying
ground at Fifth and Arch streets,
And next they walked to Chestnut
street and Lucy was greatly interested
in seeing the State House,
Then Mrs. Atterbury said: "We
will go to Wanamakcr's store at Thir-
teenth and Chestnut streets," where
they enjoyed a good wholesome lunch.
"Xow for the big department, mother,
dear!" cried Lucy.
How wonderful the handsome dolls
seemed to Lucy. "They are all so sweet
and dear and beautiful. I'd like to
have every one of them,'
said the little

And how glad she was when the first

waiting at the top of the stairs for her.

times, and she pointed out many points
of interest to Lucy and Mrs. Atterbury.

I should be none the worse!

And that's what I tell mother.
When she is buying dolls for me.
And then she buys another!
