He reached in his pocket and, pulling out a small box, held it toward her.

The lid was punched full of holes.

"Reginald," he said solemnly. "I've had him all winter. Some boys caught

him in the park, and I brought him home."

He left her standing there speechless with surprise, with the box in her

hand, and ran down the stairs and out into the Street. At the foot of the

steps he almost collided with Dr. Ed.

"Back to see Sidney?" said Dr. Ed genially. "That's fine, Joe. I'm glad

you've made it up."

The boy went blindly down the Street.
