- Who to use the. The N.B.C. children's theatre present so story A from E.B. White. A world of Stuart Little. Johnny Carson. Well Mr and Mrs Frederick see little a second boy Stewart arrived everybody noticed that he was not much bigger than a mouse the truth of the matter was he looked very much like a mouse. It was only ninjas high and he had a mouth of yours a mouse with a mouse was pale in the pleasant shy manner of a mouse you not only look like a mouse but acted like one tool. Wearing a gray suit and carrying a small cane and Fedora. Mr and Mrs Little named him Stuart Allister little made him a tiny bed out of foreclosed engine a cigarette butt. Stewart could climb lands by shinning up the court when he was only a week or. Every morning this is a little way the modest small scale which is really meant for wing letters at birth story could have been sent by first class mail for five cents but his parents prefer to keep him. Read understanding the way. One of the age of a monthly again only one third of an ounce. His mother was so worried she took him to the doctor for a checkup the doctor was delighted with Stuart he said it was very unusual for an American family to have a mouse the listener Stuart hard with a stethoscope. And checked his temperature. It was ninety eight point six which is normal for a mouse the doctor told her to say. So that you get inspectors tonsils they were in good shape then the doctor looked into his ears solemn way with a flashlight. Not every doctor can look into a mouse ears without laughing. Everything's going to be justified in Mrs Little was pleased to get such a good report. Feed him up but buys the doctor as they said goodbye. The home of the little family was a pleasant place near a park in New York City. Stewart was a great help to his family because of his small size and because he could do things that a mouse can do man was agreeable about the way. He was helpful want to game the ping the littles like being a way of ruling on a thing. Stewart soon learn to chase boss it was great fun to see him pushing a ping pong ball. Throw is whole weight against it in order to keep it rolling the little is out a piano in their living room which was all right except that one of the keys was a sticky and didn't work properly. Mrs Lo said she thought it must be the damp weather yet the key had been sticking for five years during which time there have been many bright clear day anyway the key Saddam's a great inconvenience to stored when he wanted to play the piano it bothered his brother George tool particularly when he played the scarf dance. It was George who had the idea of stationing stored inside the piano is job was to push the key up the second it was played this was no easy task for Stewart is he had to crouch down the twin assault hammers so that he wouldn't get a. Majority like it just saying he would emerge quite deaf ears oh he just stepped out of an airplane after a long journey and it would be some little time before he really felt normal again. Mr in this little often discussed to it quietly when he wasn't around when they had never quite recovered from the shock and surprise of having a mouse in the family it was a very tiny and he presented so many problems to his parents. Mr Little said that for one thing there must be no unkind references to mice in our conversations more Stewart's reading. So Stuart always thought that the poem was the night before Christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse went this way. It was the night before Christmas when off with a house not a creature was stirring not even a lot of. Mr Little made his wife tear from the nursery song book the page about the three blind mice see how they run I don't want store to get a lot of notions and his head said Mr little I should feel badly they have my son grew up in fear that the farmer's wife was going to cut off his tail with a carving knife the such things of my children bring bad dreams when they go to sleep. Stewart was an early riser he touched his toes ten times every morning to keep him self in good condition is seen as Brother George two and then George will explain it except for mine abdominal thing to do after exercising. Steward would start for the bathroom. Been silently down the mall in the dark hall and past the head of the stairs the most the matter would be dark to Stuart father thoughtfully tied a long string of The Paul chain of the light by grasping at his eyes he glared enjoying his whole weight on it. Stuart was able to turn on the light. My little Friar fellow members on the string is way to get up to the wash basin Stuart had to climb with a tiny rope ladder which is fired six prime. Georgian promise to goes toward a small special washbasin But George was always saying that he was going to build something and then forgetting about it so soon just want to head to climb the rope ladder to the family was amazing every morning to such a small fellow the tasks of washing his face and hands and brushing his teeth presented many problems. Mrs Little have provided him with adult size was caught and how its old toothbrush and a dog's com which he used for coming is whiskers. Turning the water on was no easy task. Steward I can hold on to the first all rights to it and playing but I can't seem to turn it on because my feet keep slipping out from under me. Doris father provided him with a very small hammer and stored founded by swinging it three times around his head and letting it come down with the handle of the faucet you could start a stream of water flowing enough to brush his teeth anyway and. So every morning the other members of the house or those in their beds with here the. Stewards hammer not a faraway blacksmith telling them that they had come. One fine morning Stuart straddled the bannister to slide down stairs as she was doing. Nobody was around but the white cat belonging to Mrs Little Snow Belt was another early riser Stewart called Good morning to our fellow replied snow though sharply. Early artist or to. Look at this Washington yes it's only five minutes now past six felt good and I thought I'd come down and get a little exercise. Nobel replied I should think you'd get all the exercise you want to be there in the bathroom. Banging around waking all the rest of us trying to get that water started to brush your teeth your teeth are big enough to rush any way you want to see a good set to look at mine. Mary I said Stuart but mine are all right too even though they're small I bet my stomach muscles are firmer than yours but there are not said the cat but they are they're like iron bands but they're not said they can't. Do it lanced around the room to see what he could do to prove the snowbelt what good stomach muscles he had. He spied withdrawn the window shade of discord in the ring like a creepy gave him an idea you can't do this he called as he reached for the ring like a circus acrobat. Then a surprising thing happened during that meant to merely pull himself up but he'd taken such a hard jump it started to fade fine dragon stored along with it and rolling them up inside so that he couldn't budge Holy mackerel said he was almost two and I guess that will teach him a show off his muscles help let me out cried Stewart but his voice was so weak that nobody heard snowball just chuckled. She was not fond of Stewart instead of running up stairs and telling the truth Mrs Little she did a very curious thing. She glanced around to see if anybody was looking then took Stuart's watchin K. to hide them in the pantry at the entrance to a mouse hole when this is Little found them she gave a scream which brought everyone on the run to its down the Mousehole they all called to him. Stu to heart when he didn't answer. Mrs Little said he must be dead. If he is dead said George we ought to pull down the shades out of respect for the dead. George shouted Mr little if you don't stop but George had already run into the living room. Be bullish jaded and out drops too and. Everybody wanted to know how it happened. It was simply an accident that might happen anybody said story as for my watch in case and you can draw your own conclusions. One fine morning Stuart but on his sailor suit the Habs took as my glasses that out for a walk. Full of the joy of life and the fear of dogs. He sauntered along Fifth Avenue keeping a sharp lookout when he saw two poodles he hurried to the nearest On line is a lady blunders trousers Dillard Angel was passed. I'm not. Million of to be noticed are stored. Yet I'm big enough to want to go the sailboat pond in Central Park. When Stewart reach the wall that surrounds the pond. He gazed out of the ships through a spy glass over the pond the light wind blew and into the breeze sailed a single massive soups and Spooner's with to mass their triangular white sails reflecting pyramids in the water. The owner's boys and grown man raised around the cement shores hoping to arrive at the other side in time to keep the boat from bumping. Some of the toy boats were not a small as you might think but when you got close to them you found that their main mast was taller than a man said. The steward they seemed enormous. He hoped that he'd be able to get aboard one of them to sail away to the far corners of the pines he was an adventurous little fellow and love the feel of the great swell entering and the breeze and his face and the cry of the goes overhead. As he stood gazing out of the ships to a spy glass. Stuart noticed one schooner the seem to him finer and prouder than any other name was and why. She had a long sharp spoon bow and honor for deck abaft the galley skylight was a lunch. Latter cast. Stuart period up for you to flee ring for us to realize that the entire ship is the ideal of Applied Art. And was perfectly fitted for going this is. She's the shift from a top stood. As she sailed in Stuart hurried over to where she would be turned around. Excuse me sir are you the owner of the schooner was said Stuart I am replied the man surprised to be addressed by a mouse in a sailor suit to do it. I'm looking for a berth and a good ship and I thought you might find me on are you sober. Asked the owner of the Wasp I do my work said Stuart crisply The man looked sharply at him he couldn't help it marring the trim appearance and old manner of this diminutive seafaring fellow well he said I'll tell you what I'll do with you you see that big raising sleep over there that's the lily in the warm red and I hate her with all my heart and so do I cried Stuart loyally I hate her because she is always bumping into by both continued the man because her owner is a lazy boy who doesn't understand sailing and hardly knows a deck from a doc or a mask from a missed cried stood over Jim from a job but with a man but hold on tell you what I'll do a little Ian be warmer there's always been able to beat the wasp sailing up my a schooner were handled properly it would be a different story. So my young friend I'll let you say all the wasp across the pond and if you beat the law morass of give you a regular job I search said Stuart and he swung himself on board the schooner taking his place at the wheel when the word ball already storm was straight and true. Bravo cried the man good luck go with you. By the bye you haven't told me your name. Name is Stuart Little most toward the top of his lungs. I'm the second son the Frederick see little of this city. Many spun the wheel over smartly and had a discriminatory the starting line. When the people in Central Park learned that one of the toy boats was being steered by a mouse in a sailor suit. They all came running a naval officer a knowledge that everybody would have to stop pushing but nobody did. People in New York like to push each other the most excited personable always the boy who on little Elian be warmer at come back here and get on my boat he cried I want you to steer my book. Thank you for your kind offer cost work but I'm happy aboard the wash and continued toward the starting on I'll be the referees or the man an olive green pants is the wasp ready ready Sir Paul Stewart is the lily and be warmer at ready. Sure I'm ready sadly Roy. All right said the referee for the north end of the pond on your mark get set go away went the to vote for the north end of the pond. This is the life from the stewards were doing so I want to show what I want to race. I overhead Siegel's wielding fried taxicabs to didn't honk to seventy second Street and the wind which had come half way across America to get the Central Park. Whistled in the rigging and lose. Bray across the decks. Before the two boats and gone very far. Stuart noticed something happening on shore the people who are pushing each other harder to see the sport and although they didn't really mean to say push the officer right in the pond the way he made went curling onwards cresting and belittling. The great wave approach. Towering above the wasp like a mom. Media for the rigging but he was too late the wave swept him into the water where everybody suppose he would drown but steward kicked with his feet and thrash with his tail and in a minute or two climb back aboard the schooner and took his place at the home he could hear people cheering at a mouse Stuart bad a mouse this race isn't over yet Bob stored as he saw that Lillian be sailing on course close by. Suddenly dark cloud swept across the sun. Leaving the earth and shadow. Dirty whether I had searched or call out to the last dollar on shore. Never mind the weather cried the owner. One job for a plot summary dead ahead. Stewart saw nothing but grey waves ahead. Then glanced behind him. There came the Lillian be gaining steadily like how Stuart look out where you're going. Right in the path of the watch Stewart saw an enormous paper bag on the wheel over but it was too late the WASP a driven or bow spritz straight into the bag slowed down and came up into the win with all sales flat. Just at that moment. Stewart saw the Baba Lillian flowers who is rigging the last couldn't move because of the bag and William good move because her nose was stuck in the wasp rigging the boats were in a terrible tangle than Stuart heard the voice of the last owner yelled store to store down Jim down stay still I don't weigh all paper bags back your force alone sailor fallen by. Stuart did all these things and slowly the was an older rail out from under the Lillian's nose and shook herself free to let me and went off in a while direction. A lot of years two or one of the main Stewart turned to the LEO and answered it then as there was healed over with the wind. Stuart Taylor straight and true toward the finish line. Steward was proud and happy happier than ever been before in all his life. After he had crossed the finish line. Stuart was highly praised for his fine seamanship and daring the last owner said it was the happiest day of his life in private life he was Dr Paul carry a surgeon dentist he said and he would be the light of the have Stewart take command of his vessel in any time. Everybody shook hands towards everybody that is except that Mabel officer was too went mad to shake hands with a mouse. Once too I got home from the boat race. His mother made him some hot Broughton put into bed in a cigarette box with the dials hot water bottle against his feet even saw Stuart got a bad record and that's turned into bronchitis and Stuart had to stay in bed for almost two weeks. During his illness the other members of the family work stream we kind of story. Mrs Little played Tic-Tac Toe wedding George made in the clay soap bubble pipe that had promised him two years ago and the more full of soapy water from flowing bubble. Mr Little Dave Stewart a handsome paradise Kate made him self out of two paper clips and the ball's leather shoelaces. Well hello stored color the bird on it when the sale. Or did you come from. I come from Fields was told we'd. Come. And I love the question. Stewart a soul Macy's good old upright in his bed. Say that again he said I. Can't be applied Margot I have a sort for. All that too bad sex toy I have a sore throat too. I've got bronchitis. You better not get too near me you might catch it I'll sit right here so. You can use some of my guard. Water's edge to it drops and drops to thank you very much for your very kind replied the bird. Did you take your temperature S. toward was beginning to be any worried about his new friends help it's not necessary is a murderer. Well we better make sure it's doing this I would hate to have anything happen to your. Soul Margot put a thermometer under her tongue and she was tortured very still for three minutes then she took it out and looked at it slowly and carefully. Normal she announced stored value. It seemed to him that he had never seen any creatures or beautiful as just your bird any already loved her. I like the way you've done your room very much commented Mark alone. Thank you it's like Stewart modestly I rather enjoy it it's a nice place recently location you could sleep in the body fine on the bookshelf in the living with it like thank you said Margaret and if you don't mind I think I'll go to bed now I always go to bed Sunday nights or. Please don't call me sir cried Stuart Cami Stewart Very well said the bird. Goodnight Stuart. Stuart producing the go to sleep he kept thinking about Marvel on the front line thinking about snow bells gleaming eyes there's just something in me that doesn't trust the captain I can't sleep knowing Marvel is in danger. He stole the living room. Sinead up the lamp cord out of the book held up to the booked up so. There was a finger ray of light from the street where outside and store it could then we see more of the low safely snuggled in the for. Sleep dwell upon a nice piece in my breast he whispered. Repeating a speech in a very limited basis. Then he said watch I am of a souvenir Dutch with a shill waiting and listening for hours we saw nothing. Heard nothing but the faint ruffle of Margot's wings when she waked from a dream. Then the clock struck one loudly and for the sound of the stroke and died away. Stewart saw two gleaming yellow eyes he jumped down behind a wooden shoe store it was frightened but he was a brave mouse snowball restart noiseless rate or the Boston fern Stewart decide at the time would come this is the finest thing I've ever done thoughts toward any push toward issues greater than. The direct hit said the steward as a startles Nobel ran off toward the kitchen. Thank heaven said Stuart there's a good night's work and he drew a kiss toward a grateful mine alone. My girl I could solo the littles are she decided to stay for a while instead of returning to the open country are used to it and watch the ball games together and they soon became fast friends. As the days passed it seemed a story that she grew more and more beautiful. He would never go away from him. One fine morning Stuart but on a struggle X. water took years new skates and set out to look for a nice pile he didn't get far. The minute he reached the streets on English Sheepdog. So he had to hide in the coil of an old. Let's bring someone and set out for the junk man. While he was there waiting for the dog to go away. A truck drove up to the curb the driver picked up a spring. Loaded on to the big jump. If I jump now turn my soft are stored so he stayed in the coil in the truck started. We're going to East you said low self. When the truck arrived at the East River which borders New York City on the east and which is a rather dirty but useful river the driver drove up to the pier and backed up to a junk scour. Stood looking down at eighty five I bet I'm going to be sick at my stomach before I get out of this. Just I'm a driver started the dumbest steward went crashing with a spring in the it is. Quite still believe are dead. He lay that way for almost an hour. When he recovered his senses he looked about him. The sky was being towed out to sea. Wealth are stored this is about the worst thing that could happen to anybody. I guess this will be my last run in this world you know that he would be towed twenty miles out and dumped into the Atlantic Ocean. I guess there's nothing I can do about it. He thought hopelessly I'll just have to wait here bravely and die like a man. This thought made him sad and it again and think of this home of his parents and brother marvelous. Love how we love them all. The snow belt he was some. When a small voice behind him was pretty good. Margot pride Stewart there is two years how did you get here. Well said the word I was looking out the window this morning and I happen to see you get dumped on of the truck so I flew out the window and followed you thinking you might need some help. I've never been so glad to see anyone in all my life said Stuart but how are you going to help me I think that if you'll hang on to my feet I can fly ashore with us at Marvel. How much do you weigh five ounces and Stewart with your clothes on nest model certainly replied Stuart modestly. When I believe I can carry you are right our circle about you to get up speed he called take a firm grip on my ankles. Water wings Marlo's Mr Kerry Stewart. I feel diseased recall of them are the little window looked down she replied. Suppose I get sick of my family. You'll just have to be saying anything is better than then. Yes. BASH troops to a degree. Isn't there something you could drop to make yourself lighter the bird called well I could drop my ice skates edge to it. Goodness me his dear friend cried I didn't know you still had your skate over your shoulder. Toss those heavy skates away were both come down in the ocean in Paris so Stuart threw them away. That's better said Mark a little now are all right. Men together they flew high over the water and headed toward home I can see the towers and chimneys of New York called Michael we're safe now. As they approached Manhattan Margot change course I think we should take the water road she called it's more scenic as they flew along high over the Hudson River. Stewart side in August father would be able to get away from business one day long enough to see all these fine things. Feeler Russia wind in his face and hear the sound of silence in his ears. We're almost there. Marlo shouted I see our T.V. antenna. Two seconds later she flew down toward the little home through the open living room window and gently landed Stuart on the Boston fern. Mrs Little who had left the window up when she missed model was glad to see them back for she was beginning to worry everyone thank Marvel for savings towards life and it's suppertime Mrs Little presented her with a cupcake which had seeds sprinkled on top. Later that year when spring came the lamb Margo isn't joining a fine early morning sun bath on the living room window sill for Mrs Little and place different land she was thinking how good all the little as were two were when she spied a note popped in the branch of referring. To hop down to eat at. The end the where of strange cat who will come by night time a well wisher he kept the no hidden under her wing all that day wondering what she had better do it but she didn't show it to anyone not even to Stuart who tried to get her to eat her favorite celery Hartley's. But she couldn't eat she was so frightened. What had I better do she kept saying to herself finally just before dark without saying a word to anyone not even the steward she threw away it was spring and she flew north just as fast as she could fly because something insider told of the North was a way for a bird to go when spring comes to the land. Stuart was heartbroken yet no appetite refuse food even his favorite cake and lost weight. Finally he decided he would run away from home without telling anyone and go out into the world and look for Marvel before daybreak next morning he got out his biggest handkerchief and in it he placed his things. Bowl a strand of hair from Mrs Little's call. I have something to remember his mother by the late in a handkerchief with his other things. To it rolled everything up into a bundle tied onto one end of the toothpick slung the back over his shoulder and stole softly out of the house. Goodbye my beautiful home it was burning I wonder if I will ever see you again. The world was a big place in which to go looking for a loss. Which way should he go north south east or west. Stewart decided to ask the advice of his friend Dr Carey the surgeon dentist owner of the schooner was which direction you think I should start out in Stewart asked what color is the bird Dr Carey question. Coco said Stuart. Better go north said the doctor don't you think so Mr Clydesdale book and go all right said the patient. What kind to him. And said Mr Clydesdale he says look in Central Park explain Dr Carey It's a good suggestion. Oftentimes people with the Katie to have sound ideas. Later Dr Carey asked during our you're traveling on foot yes sir said Stuart Well I think you'd better have a car replied the doctor. Let's see what can be done about it. I enjoy building model cars and boats and I'm not extracting teeth I made this one myself it was the most perfect miniature automobile Stewart had ever seen it was a bright red with chrome trim a streamlined classy convertible of graceful design it as a real gasoline motor in it and a good deal of power do you think you can handle it. Certainly replied Stuart but on everybody stop and stare at such a small automobile nobody will be able to see you or the car replied Dr Carey why not asked or because this car is thoroughly modern is not only. Noiseless it's invisible nobody can see it. I can see it said Stuart. Push that little button said the doctor. Instantly the car vanished. Here again said the dentist I can see it replied Stuart then the feel for it. Stuart pushed what felt like the same button Watch out your voice the starter button yellow Dr feet away loose in the room. Neither he nor stored could see the car the other was rushing all over the room bumping into things. Dr place to it up on a table worry wouldn't be hit by the runaway car with each crash the doctor reach for the spot where the sound coming from but only was quick to dismiss and there'd be another crash someplace else. Oh Mercy Mercy Stewart cried when he saw what he had done. The get a butterfly that call the doctor I can steward yelled I'm not big enough. Dr Jerry went to the fireplace press the proper button than. There is doing it. It's from actual treated taxed it's when she'll shattered and quite a bit of the red paint scratched want a mess grown the doctor I'm sorry. Dreadfully sorry said Stuart. Stuart I hope this will be a lesson to you Never push a button or an automobile unless you are sure of what you're doing. Yes sir answered Stuart was already homesick and his eyes filled with tears. Each Tear being smaller than a drop of dew he was sure he was never going to see Marlo again then the doctor told Stewart he was certain he could make the necessary repairs on the car. Buyer leave the next morning Dr Carey had the car all ready to go and Stuart started out right away to avoid traffic. He thought it would be a good idea to get out on the road the boy they were too many cars. The mists of spring mornings on in the early lightest or drove through Central Park is little car purring along smoothly in the sparse traffic. As often as possible Stuart search the trees from are below. Recalling their past joyous times together in sweet silent thought each. Of course he constantly kept an eye out for danger. Reminded of the snow bells in the world. Store decided to leave the wiles of Central Park and cross over the west side highway. The tenderest greens of spring and palest Pastore blossoms repeatedly burst on his side as he drove north on the George Washington Bridge. Jewish guy around beautifully along the open Saw Mill River Parkway and although people in passing cars were inclined to stare at him and smiled. Store didn't mind you continue driving right along. He was very careful not to press the button which would cause so much trouble today before. During his North Ridge travels stored considered each town through which he drove as the possible side of Marlowe's new home when he approached the village of Ames crossing it seemed to him the finest town he had ever seen. Martillo would like it here he thought to himself the houses were white and high in the trees were green and higher than the houses and the wide yards were bushy and we're finding out about. The places where people think about God beach behind the operator. In this lovely as town a bald Stuart felt free and uncrowded. Driving up in front of the general store he called out to the storekeeper on the front steps of any SAS Brill in your store I've got a ruinous thirst certainly gallons of it. Beer birch beer ginger ale Pepsi Cola deplete all a popsicle or raspberry cream tonic anything you want to let me have a bottle of SAS Perilla please said Stuart. Ballast arguable went back in the store for the drink. Stewart waited enjoying the feeling of being in a new place on a fine day this was the most peaceful and beautiful spot he had found it always travels it seemed to him a place he would gladly spend the rest of his life and if it weren't that he might get homesick for the sights of New York and his family and if it weren't for the fact that something deep inside him made him want to find Marcelo when Stewart's all the storekeeper returning to the South Carolina he rushed up the front steps to medium. Pair you are storekeeper said kindly distort then sat down to join him on the steps. That's very refreshing remarks to it there's nothing like a long cool drink lead of the day when you're traveling. Are you going far. Asked the storekeeper perhaps very far replied story I'm looking for a bird name are below you haven't seen or read you I can't say I have he said. Say how tall are you. You mean in my stocking feet are stored vs five inches nothing in a quarter answers to it. I haven't been measured Recently however I may have shot up a bit. There's someone in this town you automate said the man was very kind of the replies stored but I'm not much of a society man these days. The highways in the byways are where you'll find me always looking for Margo. Which reminds me it's time I was on my way. Stuart called it by the storekeeper and drove off. He turn left onto a dirt road and headed down toward the river. Store drove toward a cool by a spot of the river bank. The bank and it didn't leave the woods and the woods climb the hill and disappeared over the top for the wonderful wise guys. The water flowed quietly. Until it was rudely interrupted by the work of farmers. Evening came and stood still lingered by the stream after a light supper of a cheese sandwich and a drink of water he said now no sleep in the warm grass with a gentle sound of the stream in his ears. In the morning the sun rose Warman clear. Already the birds were beginning to stir. Making friendly sounds in the branches overhead. Never let a bird pass without looking to see if it was. Refreshing. Glad to be on the move again. In their early morning. By the side of the. Stop and asked You're worried about something. Anyways don't ask in a friendly voice. Continued the man I'm a principal of school seven. To do it for a sick teacher. I just can't find another teacher. Landed a good place for a day suggested Stewart thank you can maintain principle of course said Stewart make the work interesting in the discipline will take care of itself. Be fine the Principal Frank stewardess school seven and a half an hour. Quarterly for Lima scholars gathered in school seven the news of travel fast and everyone knew they were to have a substitute and a rest from their teacher for least a day and they were going to have the wonderful experience of being taught by a strange teacher had ever seen before. Real at me have your attention. Stewart said of the children from the top of the desk as you know your teacher is sick but I am taking her place is anybody absent. Fine what's the first subject usually take up. Mathematics said Lydia Lacy Let's get that instead of taking up any special subject. Be a good idea if we just talked about something. Room. How many of you know what's important. They're a good said Stuart and reracked you tell us what's important the way the back of a baby's neck smells of its mother keeps a tidy answered Henry. Correct but what did Henry forget. Ice cream with chocolate sauce on it said Mary Bendix exactly said Stuart. Can anyone suggest any good laws for the world. Nix on swiping anything stated John pulled out he never poison anything but rants said Anthony Brandy see. That's no good said Stuart it's unfair to rats A lot has to be fair to everybody from Iraq's point of view. Poison is objectionable but chairman has to see all sides to a problem any other ideas for laws. Absolutely no being mean. Stated Mildred often seen that won't work. Some people are just naturally mean Herbert Pendergast remark. I'm not saying it'll work said Stuart it's a good law and will be able to try right now. Somebody do something mean to somebody. Airy. Fairy you do something mean to Catherine. Wait a minute now. What's that you've got your Aunt Catherine. Hides a little pillow stuff will sweep Bos'n and does it say for you I pine and for you I bought some on it. Catherine said yes. I suppose you love it very much. Yes I do said Katharine Graham and Harry taken away. All that Stewart said fiercely. Harry broke two laws. Know swiping that no being mean. Let's get Harry the children crowded around him while Stuart demanded he give up the pillow. Harry look scared although he knew it was just a test case. He gave Katherine the little pillow. She was very pleased to have it back. You see no being mean is a perfectly good law said Stuart. Breathless from the exertion of being shared one of the world. It had taken a good deal more energy than he had imagine. Let me see that little pill a minute said Stuart as he thought what a fine sweet smelling better would make for him he began to want to himself. You don't want to sell it to us toward all know it was a present to me replied Catherine I suppose it was given to you by boy you know like hop the gone last summer and it reminds you of him Ridge to a dream easily Yes said Katherine blushing you're sure you don't want to sell that little pillow Stuart persisted Katherine sugar head don't know as I blame you replied Stuart quietly. Summertime is important it's like a shaft of sunlight or note in music. Never forget your summer times my dears he said. Well I've got to be going along it's been a pleasure to know you all classes dismissed. Stuart strode rapidly to the door and the final wave of the hand. Drove off in a northerly direction while the children raised alongside scream goodbye goodbye. They all wish they could have a substitute every day.
