There is not the slightest Chance of his Corning to any harm if he behaves himself. Hun along Honey and bring us a great big fish for very Well Iko you May sighed Mamma anxiously but i will not have you sit with your legs hanging Over the Edge of the wharf. Promise me you will be said Iko. He was already half Way Down the Garden path. And Ohiko listen to Iko paused obediently but Tih Erc was. A slight indication of impatience a the he twitched his shoulders. Walk Down Between the freight car yes you make a perfect baby of that said aunt Allie. He s Iko is Mamma assented quietly and i suppose he is old fashioned from having lived almost exclusively Vith Gru Uii people bin he is to i afraid of Tulig Wocl his tenacity of purpose is sometimes quite tint Allie smiled so optically As be Bent Over her sewing but wisely said nothing. Meanwhile Rio vt5iose name was Isaac by the Way. And a very Good name it is for a fishes Vruir was walking As fast As his thin Little legs could carry him Down the Middle of the Long steam boat wharf and Between the Woodten rails on which the sat freight car eled flown and Back twice a Day. At the Landing the wharf widened and made room for a shed which opened on both sides to let the primitive railway pass through and beyond framed in by the opening of the shed was old ill. Pardee in the blazing Sunshine perched upon a Cluster of posts which projected above the floor of the wharf. A nervous flush spread Over Iko S.I. i Cate dark face As he approached the Bro and Landing. Lie had not yet made the acquaintance of or. Pardee and the figure on the posts did nor. Look sociable. The old Man wore a coarse Blue cot ton shirt discoloured in spots and very Patchy trousers his head and vere covered by a great hat of rough country Straw and All that Iko could see of his face was a pair of thin lips exhibited in profile closed but making a slow grinding Moti ii indicative of tobacco. Iko paused within a few Knees of the posts clutched his own hat from his head shyly and1 gazed with wretched Gucci i buy at the Oil Man. When some ten or twelve seconds lad elapsed the great hat began 10 revolve upon the Bent shoulders and the withered Sunburst face and smash. Eyes of or. Pardee were slowly turned upon the Little boy after which with no change 01 expression no Stop Ping of that relentless grinding motion of the lips they were As slowly turned Back again. Iko. Hopelessly embarrassed began to Fumble with his fishing tackle but he had never baited a Hook before and the Little pieces of meat persisted in drop Ping off before they touched the water. He grew redder and More Clumsy after each unsuccessful attempt once he pricked his Finger with the Hook and Tiwe to time he cast Side glances of mortification and woe at the silent Fisherman on the posts. After the Little fishing Rod had been jerked Back several times or. Pardee. Who appeared to be oblivious of a As going on below him. Descended from his Perch took the Rod from Iko aside the scraps of raw beef aunt Allie had provided As bait Hung a piece of Catfish on the Hook and led the toy around to one of. The wharf. Where the shed cast a parallelogram of Shade upon the floor then having ant cast the line Over with a careless Ness that made Iko tremble for the bait pm returned to his own sunny Pedestal. All this he did trip haul a work. Iko Teing a polite child wanted to S.I. thank but the silence of this Peculiar old Man choked the foun Tain of match huh in him and he found himself incapable of uttering a sound. The air quivered hotly Over by the Shore Ami along the tops of the Onty ing bathhouses. The sunlight of the water Hurt Iko s eyes and he Drew his hat Over his face. The heat and the stillness made him drowns. Lie wondered if old or. J urdu e suis annoyed Ssith him for coining Down to wish. Lie wondered parts of those queer Troun is had Helon ired to to Peiu they Sere first no Tilc. And if that Blue shirt had Eser smash of. Lie wondered if or. I Ardee was warm out there in the or if he was like the salamanders Mamma had Tolu him fairy creatures who were fireproof. He wondered of a great Many s ague sleepy thai grew Sleeper and Sleeper All the time till suddenly his body gave an unexpected Little As one s body still sometimes when one is just on the Point of going to sleep and he lifted his hat and discovered that the parallelogram of Shade had quite perceptibly shifted its position and he was on the Edge of the Silas hire. Lie stood up to move to a better place and As lit did so something at the other end of his line a desperate Jerk and pulled him at a brisk Trot Over to the Edge of the wharf lie Clun to the Rod with both hands and held Back As much As he could but the Lish on the end of the line tugged mightily. Once he saw a big Bob out of the water and a Tail swirled up As the fish went Down Arnin. Juko s dreamy Brown eyes were filled with the Light of Battle and a grim expression settled about his Mouth. Lie had stopped himself within about two feet of the Edge of the wharf and he dug his heels into a crack Between two planks but the fish pulled him Over on his toes and he was obliged to take a step Forward in order to keep his bal Ance. Try As he might he could not lift the fish an Inch out of the water but he could hang on to the pole and he did so his Little Knuckles were White and Grassy with the Strain. He rocked bade and Forth ind took another step Forward. It was perilously near the Edge his Eye looked As if they were starting out of his head and his month was tight shut stubbornly. Decidedly Mamma was Correct when she said that at times Iko showed an adj Bonishing tenacity of purpose " he made a feeble and entirely useless attempt to lift the fish tip and once More began to Rock Back and Forth. As he swayed Forward he could see the i water and the Green Slimy Post against which he must inevitably strike his head if he should go Over. As he swayed Back the sky went round a Bizily. Then he went Forward again and there was a singing in his cars. Instinctively he put his foot out to take another step but he knew that he was walking straight off into space Down. Tim still to the pole. Just at this exciting moment old Pardee s left hand gripped Iko s Collar i and hurled him backward anywhere the eyes grew a Litto the old Man would lend it to him afterwards for a few min to that he Boss it to Mamma Ami aunt Allie. He lifted the wish and pressed it against his shirt front with one hand to keep it from slipping out of and with the other he took Oil his hat then he or. Partite and said i am much o you. If it been for you i Rhc uld have Jie i lie gulped Overton in to give you my please re member me by. 1 can catch put of your or. Pardee. Iko did so. And waited Jfe was accustomed to being thanked for his gifts Thi unions abrupt ii a Dis concerted rim or.

This he said is the biggest fish Ever been caught Here senic i Ter git when and i m i-0. If you Ketch an other like it in -10 year i la give be a. Iko confused Anc humbled and won Dering Why i innocent remark should so suddenly appear to be an u a warrant Able , stood first on one 1 oot and then on the other while the old gentle Man fastened a piece of stick crosswise to the string for a handle. Does your come Over to night on the Iko. Well you give this Here to him with old or. Pardee s and say is a Fisherman is Fiat Means a Bass n gentleman. Take said Iko and stood with Mouth and eyes wide open. Come said or.
