Fred and I caught a big fellow in our cabbage patch this morning, and we've watched him almost all day and he hasn't done a single thing that is useful." Walter's father loved the out? doors and he was delighted to see that his boy did. too. He seemed to know just how to answer all Wal t-r's questions, and for hours they would walk through the woods just watching and talking about the ani? mals and birds, so. perhaps, the question was not really much of a surprise to him.
