II was on Windermere, one annoy evening

venture was told rue by a kindly, middle-aged

had made at the hotel where 1 was staying.
We had coxae oot with the Intention of fish

finding the perch In no humor to ’ blto vrhiio,
the biin was so high, we sat chsttlng and

guard the head of the lake, biding our time
patiently till the fish should be hungry

by imperceptible decrees. I got up after a
