 by  CHARLES J. BARNES, et al.


     "You are very kind, Mary, to have a nice fire for me. 

I am cold after my long drive."

     "Yes, Fred, you look cold and tired, but you will soon

get warm by this fire. How far did you drive?"

     "Seven miles, and the snow and ice made it a cold ride."

     "Can we skate on the lake now, Fred?"

     "Yes, the ice is strong. We can have a good skate. Do

you want to go and try it?"

     "O yes, Fred! I like to skate. Will you go with me?"

     "Yes, as soon as I get warm. But John and Ann are

coming over to see us."

     "Well, Fred, we will ask them to go with us. Ann 

likes to skate."

     "O yes! if they go, we shall have a merry time."

     "What fun it will be, Fred! I will run now and find 

my hat. We will go as soon as they come."
