One night while Johnnny was guarding lie fell asleep, and while he was asleep a white bear, who had been hiding behind some bushes, crept In. There was a nice warm fire In the fireplace, and the bear put all the flro out but Just a little spark. After he was through, he crept out so no vbody would hear him. There was a robin sitting in the tree watching. After the bear went out the robin flew In, and fanned and fanned the spark until It burnt his breast and this Is why robins are called "Robin red breast."
