Leather to go in search of them without clothing and the necessary requirements for his horses, Mr. Sponge went trotting on, in hopes of seeing some place where he might get a sight of the map of the county. So they proceeded in silence, till a sudden turn of the road brought them to the spire and housetops of the little agricultural town of Barleyboll.

But strike the water with the halter and say, "Come here, O mare of the mountain witch!" and she will come. The prince did as he was bid, and the mare and her foal stood before him.

"I wish to heaven you had been caught in a man-trap and had all your limbs broken, you you you Oh!" ejaculated Old Hurricane, turning short and trotting up and down the room.
