They Passed the Fox.
The story so far: In order to
rescue Helga from the white fox
the sailor doll has challenged him
to a race. The sailor is to take
Helga in his ice boat, and the fox
takes the tiny squirrel.
Chapter XIX.
The Race.
THE white fox seemed to be
mightily pleased with the Idea
of racing the sailor In his ice
boat.
He was so pleased with the idea
that he stopped to brush his long,
white hair and to admire himself in
the mirror.
He started to tie about his neclt the
collar of silver bells that Helga had
given him. But the sailor remembered
that the Queen of Fairies had told
him he should get those bells. So he
said:
“That collar may add some weight
and become very tiresome as you run.”
"Right you are,” said the fox and
put them down.
They all trooped out of the den, the
white fox carrying the tiny squirrel
and. the sailor with Helga who was
tying on her ermine cape.
“There's my boat,” said the sailor,
pointing down the hill. They all
walked down the hill to the boat, and
the sailor helped Helga into her seat,
tucking her cape about her feet.
^7HEN they were all ready, the
white fox drew a line in the snow.
The W’htte fox toed it, and the sailor
swung his boat along so its bow just
crossed the line.
“We're off!” growled the fox.
He sprinted across the line and
streaked away across the hills. But !
the sailor’s boat was slow in getting
started because hts sails had to fill
with the wind. “What ho, North
Wind,” he shouted. “Come and help.”
The North Wind had been watching
from behind the mountain, so he
came running. He puffed into the
sailor's sails until they looked like fat.
white mushrooms, and the boat sung
across the snow. Soon it was along
side the fox. He was grinning, his red
tongue hung out and his eyes biased
red. But then the boet began to pass
him. He lunged to try to push the
boat over, but the sailor saw him, and
swung out of his road.
pjELGA was so excited she stood up
in the boat and shouted, "Watch
the sails; I'll handle the tiller.”
They passed the fox easily and the
last they saw of him he was so angry
he was howling hts head off.
The sailor and Helga sped along in
the boat, enjoying the ride.
Finally the sailor said, with a little
admiring smile:
“I must say you took hold of the
boat well.”
"This is wonderful,” said Helga.
“I’ve always wanted to sail, and I’m
so glad I’m free of the fox.”
“You should be,” said the sailor.
"But we must go back to his home
iust once more to rescue the tiny
squirrel.”
