"The poor thing is tembly lone- some right now. and she is going to be more so. We'll be nice to her and try to make her feel at home here, but that won't be enough. With none of her own kind to talk to, or even to see. she is going to be more lonesome and unhappy everv dav. poor thing. That Honker belongs here. Probably he has al- readv forgotten her." Mrs. Paddy was inoignant. There was no doubt about, that. Mrs. Honker lonesome, and growing more so. There had been times when she had been alone. Of course. Evervbody is alone at times. But always she had known that it was for onlv a very short time. Usually Honker or some of her family or friends had bees within call. So, ihough alone, she had not been lonesome. This was a very different matter. Though she should csil her loudest, there would be no answer. And she knew that withT every passing minute the great-wings of her flock were tak- ing them farther from. her. She paddled about aimlessly. She was continuously listening for the honking and gabbling of familiar voices even though she knew she wouldn't hear them. She had no appetite. This was just as well, for there was little in that pond she could eat. She would have to find her food elsewhere. A lone- some lady was Mrs. Honker, and growing more lonesome.
