birthday. 

 

Two days later the Campbells went home, a larger party than when 

they came; for Dr. Alec was escort and Kitty Comet was borne in 

state in a basket, with a bottle of milk, some tiny sandwiches, and 

a doll's dish to drink out of, as well as a bit of carpet to lie on in 

her palace car, out of which she kept popping her head in the most 

fascinating manner. 

 

There was a great kissing and cuddling, waving of handkerchiefs, 

and last good-byes, as they went; and when they had started, 

Mother Atkinson came running after them, to tuck in some little 

pies, hot from the oven, "for the dears, who might get tired of 

bread and butter during that long day's travel." 

 

Another start, and another halt; for the Snow children came 

shrieking up to demand the three kittens that Pokey was cooly 

carrying off in a travelling bag. The unhappy kits were rescued, 

half smothered, and restored to their lawful owners, amid dire 

lamentation from the little kidnapper, who declared that she only 

"tooked um 'cause they'd want to go wid their sister Tomit." 

 

Start number three and stoppage number three, as Frank hailed 

them with the luncheon basket, which had been forgotten, after 

everyone had protested that it was safely in. 

 

All went well after that, and the long journey was pleasantly 

beguiled by Pokey and Pussy, who played together so prettily that 

they were considered public benefactors. 

 

"Rose doesn't want to go home, for she knows the aunts won't let 

her rampage as she did up at Cosey Corner," said Mac, as they 

approached the old house.
