She didn't think much more about it until later on he came in, with the most tragic little face, and told her, his little body shaking with sobs, that he had drowned Stripey. "'Why did you do that? Mrs. Meredith exclaimed. "'To bring Jem back, sobbed Bruce. 'I thought if I sacrificed Stripey God would send Jem back.

"The same as Jem Wimble does, sir. I can volunteer, and fight, if you like; but I can't bear to be forced."

Kind, well-meaning callers and comforters gave Rilla some terrible moments. "You'll get over it in time," Mrs. William Reese said, cheerfully.
