Said the jolly bumble-bee, "' \here's there honey stored for me;" And he went buzzing, buzzing on his way.

Said the little bird to me, "There to feed my nestlings three," And he twitter-twitter-twittered on his way. Rippling o'er his pebbly bed in merry play, Next I met a little brooklet, glad and free; And he whispered in a very funny way, So I said, "Your secret prithee tell to me." "Oh, I'm going to the sea," Said the streamlet glad and free, "Back in rain I soon will be;" And he gurgle-gurgle-gurgled on his way. I had gone a little farther on my way, When I met a weeping laddie, sad to s...

It took him a longer time to gict to the IKlondike. In the first place, Ie made a. mistake. -le selected the trail fronm Skagway over the White Pass to Lake Bennett. Now that was bad, but not' so bad as his next error. Ile would not give it up and go by the Chilcoot Pass, though he heard Chilcoot was muclL easier. But that does not say much for the Chilcoot Pass. "No," said Olaff; "F started to go over the 1Vhite Pass, and I is going to make it over the White Pass." Olaff. had a hard time on the trail, though he didn't know it. That Is to say, any other man would have thought. it a hard time; but Olaff, expecting bad things, had no "kick," as he expressed it, against adversity.
