are several thousand calves outside,
and it is likely that one of them is
bawling. "
"This one bawls a-- it' it was unhappy, "

locate it. And down in the canon
bottom she came upon a tiny, red-and
ivhite morsel of calf, so young thai its
spindle legs bent and twisted alarm

With a glad little noise thai sounded

like the gurgle of a hungry baby when

from its motner, and what its fate
would be she did noi .are to think.
