Willie's mother was amazed, but
Willie's Aunt Victoria was suspicious.
His mother said she Just knew the
child was ill and she held the medical
thermometer under his tongue by
main force, but bis Aunt Victoria
raised her eyebrows and narrowed her
eyes while studying him.
The trouble was that Willie had
not shrieked with joy when his mother
had said that she would take him to
the circus. He had not even seemed
faintly Interested. It was an unheard
of state of things!
"He hasn't any fever," announced
his mother anxiously, consulting the
thermometer. "Does, your head ache,
"Nope," Willie, said cheerfully.
"I never heard of a boy who wasn't
perfectly crazy to go to a circus!" per
sisted his mother. "Why, usually
you worry the life out of me from the
time the posters are put up! You
acted that way when this circus first
was announced, and I don't see are
you sure you don't want to go?"
"I'd ruther go play with Arthur
Jones," Willie said, wriggling. He
edged out of the door.
"I Just know he's going to bo sick,"
repeated his mother.
"I wouldn't worry," said his Aunt
Victoria. "He looks perfectly healthy."
But secretly she was as much
amazed as was Willie's mother. Re
yarding Willie from a calm, unemo
tional point of view, she recognized
the fact that there might be other ex
planations than any which came Into
the mind of his worried parent
There had been gorgeous posters
for several weeks in the suburb show
ing forth the glories of the small cir
cus that was coming, and Willie, with
the other small boys, had followed the
bill poster about, hysterically whoop
ing with glee. He had talked circus
and dreamed circus for days and had
nearly broke his neck practicing on
the tight rope In the back yard, to the
serious injury of the family clothes
line. And now, the second day of the
show, he had rejected hiB chance to
So. It certainly was not normal con
duct on Willie's part.
His Aunt Victoria cornered Willie
that evening and offered him some
chocolates. "Tell me why you don't
want to go to the circus, she said, be
fulllngly. "Huh!" said Willie. "I seen it."
"I knew perfectly well you weren't
going to be sick," she said, triumph
antly. "Have another chocolate. Did
ou go to it yesterday T
"Huh!" confided Willie. 1 wuz in
Victoria clutched the chair
arm. "In it?" she repeated faintly.
Willie kicked one foot meditatively
against the step. "Well," he amend
ed, "not eggzactly in it, y'know. I.
wuz on it"
Aunt Victoria felt her back hair dis
tractedly and swallowed hard.
"Willie!" she cried Impressively.
