New National First Reader
 by  CHARLES J. BARNES, et al.

Directions: Underline verbs twice and subjects once.

     "John, where did you get your fox?"

     "I caught him in a trap, when he was small."

     "Is he tame now?"

     "O yes! and he is very fond of me. We romp, and play,

and have a jolly time with each other."

     "What do you give him to eat?"

     "I give him meat and bread."

     "Can a fox run fast, John?"

     "Yes. My fox can run very fast. A little while ago,

Frank was here with his dog Rover. The fox was afraid

of Rover, and ran away. When Rover saw the fox start,

he ran after him. O how they did go! They ran and ran,

up hill, and down hill, but the fox ran faster than Rover,

and got away."

     "How did you get him back?"

     "O when Rover went away, he soon came back to

me. I do not let dogs run after him now."
