Huni certainly would have gone into the fire-pots of hell without complaining, and he left me quite cheerfully.
Upon reaching the door of the house it was evident that it had been deserted. Lucy had now assumed the command. "Dan," she said, "there is no shutter to the window of that upper room. You must manage to climb up there and get in at that window, and then open the door to us." "All right, missie, me manage dat," Dan said cheerfully.
We have had a great many Russian and English gentlemen and ladies on board to-day, and the time has passed cheerfully away. They were all happy-spirited people, and I never heard our mother tongue sound so pleasantly as it did when it fell from those English lips in this far-off land.
About twenty are worth putting labels on," answered Bertha cheerfully. "I'm a little inclined to think that that part of our plan was a mistake." "I don't believe it," said Dot.

In connection with this Board is the Samaritan Aid Society which annually contributes about three hundred new articles of clothing and bedding.
