Riding Down Hill. 1. There is a steep hill near our house. 2. Last week there was good sleighing.

3. All the little boys and girls went out to ride down hill.

4. Some grown up boys and girls went too. 5. Where did they go to ride down hill ?

6. They went to Fourth Street. They rode down Fourth Street ‘and across Green Street where the horse cars run.

7. I should think that was dangerous. Did any of them ever get hurt?

8. Yes, an accident happened last winter. I will tell you about it.

9. One moonlight night six large boys drew a long bob-sled to the top of the hill.

10. They rode down Fourth Street so fast that when they reached Green street they could

not stop.

The boy

11. They ran against a horse car. in front was hurt so badly that the doctor thought he would not get well.

12. He did get well after a long time, but after that he would not ride across Green Street again.

13. There have been no accidents since. 14. Why? Are the boys more careful ?

15. No, they are not; but the city keeps two policemen at the crossings on Fourth Street to take care of the children.

16. Now the children can ride down hill without being in danger of getting hurt.

Shining on us everywhere,
Making all so warm and bright
In the vales and on each height,
Painting them in colors gay
As you smile on them all day;

If I have a cheerful mind,
And am glad and good and kind,
Then will in this heart of mine
Evermore be sweet sunshine.
