Koger then began prying open the
crate while everyone stood around
and watched with interest. The noise
of the prying and the Jar as each slat
was taken off seemed to daze Bella,
who lay still staring into space.
"Now, you're free, old gal!" cried
Roger, giving her a gentle prod. "Get
up and go to the barn."
Up went Bella's ear, while her lit
tle eyes rolled around.
"O-o-o!" screamed Mildred. "She
looks kind of crazy or something!"
For a moment Bella crouched there,
then all of a sudden she Jumped 'up
and scuttled out of the box, grunting
so loudly that Jig. the dog, fled in
"This way, Beiia, this way!" yelled
Roger, pointing down the steps. But
Bella paid no beed. In fact she made
a fierce dive in the other direction.
Joe happened to be in the way. He
stood with his feet wide apart and hit
hands on his knee a favorite atti
tude when he wa watching something
Interesting. Bella must have taken
him for an archway because she
plunged madly between his legs.
Kek! Eek! He fell square on her back.
"Stop her!" cried Aunt Gert. "Oh
my! She's in the house!"
Everybody dashed after the fright
ened pig, but Bella dodged them all
and backed Into an open door. It
was the door of a bed room which
was on the first floor, and which Mil
dred and Gert were using. Bella
fouqd It quiet in there and so she de
cided to creep under the bed and rest
.Meanwhile there wa a wild search
going on which was at last given up
and Bella had a long nap in piece.
The next thing she knew she was
being disturbed by talking and laugh
ing. Gert and Bulla were getting
ready for bed. Luckily she couldn't
understand what they were saying
-o ut pigs. My! How hungry the
poor creature was!
"It ameils terribly musty In here,
but, of course, it's a very old house
and the plaster Is all falling down."
Just then Mildred began to scream.
"Look!" she cried. "A snake!"
So It was, curled up on the rug.
The cries of the girle brought Aunt
Oert and the cook, but Just as they all
came in Bella, who was famished,
spied the delicious morsel on the rug.
Out she darted from her hiding place
and before anyone could say Jack
Robinson, she was trampling that
snake. In two more shakes the snake
was no more. It had gone down
Bella's hungry throat.
"Did you see that!" cried Mildred.
"Th pi ssvd our lives I'm sure!"
