About twenty-seven years ago, one July day, a gentleman was strolling on the beach at Llandudno, North Wales. Dozens of youngsters were energetically piling up or digging in the sand, dozens more were wading about bare-legged with their shrimping nets and buckets amongst the rocky, weedy pools. The sun shone on the blue waves, and lazy big folk read or dozed. Presently he came across a disconsolate party of boys and girls tired of their spades and longing for something else to do. He dearly loved children, and so he paused beside them. Happy thought ! " Will you help me to make a big text here? " said he. " All right." " Well, get a lot of pebbles, some black and some white; you go for fine seaweed, and you lend me some string." The boys' pockets turnted out several pieces, which, tied and stretched between two pegs, made th...
