boys running in front of burning housexx

this housexx is on fire.

Look! the roof is in a blaze.

Run, boys, and ring the bell. Call some men to put out the fire.

We may yet save the housexx , if we work hard


Bess, do you hear a noise?

Yes, Tom; what is it?

It is the mill by our housexx ; logs are cut there.

How do they cut the logs, Tom,—with an axe?

Not with an axe, Bess; it is too hard work; they cut them with a saw.

May we not go and see the mill at work, Tom?

Yes, I think so. the air is cool, and we can walk in the shade. We should go soon, Bess, or the pile of wood will be gone.

Our two goats and the cart are here, Tom; we can ride to the mill. It is not up hill, and the goats can pull us fast.

It looks like a church, but I think it is a schoolhouse.
