The Youth's Companion tells 0
the story of a girl who lived in
Mississippli and who' asked her Presi
brother to give her the money to J B.

could not afford it, and, tossing
her a nickle, added, "unless you Jose
can go on that."
The plucky little girl took the Frank
five-cent piece and bought some
calico,;'from which 'she made a Dr. H
bonnet that she sold for twenty- iarn
five cents: With this money she
bought more calico and made Ernest
