The Story That Goidie Told
Goidie was just four and a half years
old; but she had always taken bo much
pride in her language that with the ex
ception of an occasional "r" she talked
like a much older child. Her compan
ions had alwajs been grown up people.
"Did you hear about the mouset
Grandma, that mamma killed last
night?" asked Goidie, as she drew her
little rocking chair up close to her grand
No. No one else thought it worth while
to tell me. Can't you tell me about it?
"Oh yes! And it's weal etcitiug in
come places," answered Goidie as she
smoothed out her dress.
"You see," she continued when Grand
ma had her knitting ready, "it was way
late in the night and all at once a noise
'wakened mamma. It sounded just like
somebody was spilling all the water ou
of the pitcher. Mamma listened. Then
she felt to see if papa was up, but no, he
wasisound asleep. But still the water
went splash-ity splash, splash-ity splash.
Mamma was just a little bit afraid; but
ehe went to the sitting room door and
then the noise stopped.
And what do you think, grandma!
She was standing wight close to what
was making the noise, and didn't see it,
till splash ity splash it went again wight
at her feet. And she looked and there
in the washbowl was a mouse!
"Wasn't that funny?"
"Mamma almost screamed but she
didn't. She just put her nighty wight
close awound her feet and was going to
kill the mouse."
"But you 6ee grandma, whenever mam
ma would go toward the bowl the mouse
would jump and splash 'till Bhe was just
sure it would jump out and then oh my
wouldnt it have been awful? Cause J
mamma couldn't wun fast and hold her
But I wish I could see it stand up.
It was soap suds in the wash bowl aDd
when the mouse wasn't splashing to get
out it would stand up to keep the soap
suds out of its eyes. The water wasn't
very deep, just about up to its waist,
mamma said. And it would stand up
just like the dog "Gyp'
in the picture "
Papa said, "why didn't you lift it out
and just put it out of doors?"
But Mamma, 6he said, "I don't get up
nights to 'Macoo mouses from watery
"Why what are you knitting grandma?"
Tm knitting some silk mittens for
your mamma on Christmas. Now you
must not tell her. Did she kill f the
"Well, shethonght she would kill it
and she picked up the poker. Then she
thought that if she hit the mouse with
that it wonld break the bowl and it was
our pretty bowl; so she put the poker
down and got Papa's ruler."
"She was just going to hit the mouse
hard when she just thought that she
might hit it and knock it out of the
bowl and not kill it. And you know
Grandma that wouldn't do, cause the
mouse and she would have been all alone
in the room together."
"So then mamma got some more water
, in a bucket and was just going to pour it
on the mouse to drown it."
'Well did she drown it?"
r Oh no, she didn't pour it, cause don't
you see that would have made the bowl
full and the mouse would have gone
splash-ity splash right over onto the floor
when mamma was in her bare feet and
her nighty. That's what makes it so
" W&l I should think so!"
"YeB, but she did kill it But she had
to think a long time. And Mamma said
while she was thinking she looked at the
mouse and the mouse looked at her.
Then mamma said: Oh, this won't do;
if I stand here and look at you, and you
look at me, with yonr funny little black
eyes, I shall feel sorry for you."
"So she thought a little more, and I
v guess sho didn't look at the mouse that
p time for she just thought how to do it
