Story # 6 At the Lake with Rover
New National First Reader
 by  CHARLES J. BARNES, et al.


     One day Ann and Frank went to the lake with Rover.

Rover can swim well, so Frank made him go into the

water after a stick.

     "Jump, Rover! Jump in and get the stick," said Frank;

and into the water he went with a big splash. 

     Pretty soon he came out with the stick in his mouth.

He did not like the fun so well as Frank, for the water

was a little cold.

     They had a fine time for a while with Rover, and then

set out for home, as it was late in the day, and they

could not stay long. 

     On the way home, Rover saw a rabbit, and away he

went after it, as fast as he could go. Ann and Frank ran

too, but could not keep up with Rover and the rabbit.

     When they got home, Rover was there, and Frank

said-- "Where is the rabbit, Rover?" 

     Rover gave Frank a funny look and went away.

     "O I know!" said Frank, "the rabbit ran so fast you

could not catch it."
