Mari stood in the middle of the big farm-yard with a flock of hens around her. She was scattering grain among them from a big bag on her arm- not a sound could be heard except once in a while the scratching of the hens feet. They were too busy to notice each other or the big dog that sat on the door-step. The little girl laughed quietly as she watched them. They are so happy- they love this pleasant summer-time as much as I do, she said to herself. But the moment she heard her mothers voice, she turned quickly toward the house without stopping a moment longer to see whether her pet hen, Biddy Wee, or cross old Yellow Legs got the most dinner. Mari never in her life thought of answering her parents by saying: Why, papa? or Why, mamma? or Ill come in a moment.
