"If you did come here on an auto it's gone now, and there isn't a sign of it. I think you must have come two or three streets away from the car before you turned in here." "Oh, no!" exclaimed Freddie. "When we got down off the auto we saw the cat and we came in after it. The auto was right out in front." "Well, it isn't there now," said the cook.

She dropped into the Alden kitchen frequently of an evening to glean a melancholy satisfaction from the morbid details of Uncle Peter's lingering betwixt life and death.

"I want you to have all the fun you can, and play with Tommy whenever you can, and I want you to be kind and to help people. I also wish, as much as you, that we could find Tommy's father, if he is still alive. But you must not run off to sea without telling us." Sometimes Freddie, and Flossie too, used to get queer ideas about what they wanted to do, and once or twice they had run away together.

And Chirpy Cricket saw no reason why he and his friends should not enjoy one too, right there in the shadow of Blue Mountain. "What they can do in the village, we can do here!" he exclaimed. And though it was still broad daylight being not later than the middle of the afternoon Chirpy set out at once to find Freddie Firefly, because he simply had to get Freddie to help him.

But I am glad to say that all of the Bobbsey twins were promoted, and Freddie and Flossie came home very proud to tell that when they went back again, after the Thanksgiving holidays, they would be in the primer reading book.

But as such things always happen, the searchers went to the end of the woods, far away from the island. Of course they all called loudly, and the boys gave the familiar yodel, but the noise of the ocean made it impossible for the call to reach Freddie and Flossie. "Oh, I'm so afraid they are drowned!" exclaimed Mrs. Bobbsey, breaking down and crying.
