     "Look, mamma'! See what a pretty fish! It is a little

trout."

     "Where did you get it, John?"

     "Frank caught it in the brook. I went to dip a dish

into the brook to get some water, and saw this little fish.

Then I said, 'O Frank, look, look quick! See the little

fish!" Frank saw it, and ran to get his fish net. He put

the net into the water, and caught the fish, and I put

it into this dish."

     "Well, what will you do with it?"

     "I will keep it, mamma."

     "But, my boy, it will not live in that dish. Put it back

into the brook."

     "I wish I could keep it. It is so pretty! May I put it

into the pond?"

     "No, John. You must put it into the brook. A trout 

will not live in warm water."
