TOM'S PRESENCE OF MIND

` Peter,' Tom said, after a brief silence, ` which would you rather be, rich and blind, or poor and able to see ?'
'Why, poor and able to see, of course,' Peter answered decidedly. He paused momentarily, then continued: ` I shouldn't so much mind being blind if it wasn't for Father-if he didn't trouble about it, I mean. I heard him tell some one once that he would make any sacrifice if by doing it he could give me my sight. I'm glad you're going to see my Father, Tom; you know he's coming to Chilaton at the end of the month, and Aunt Harriet says she shall insist on his staying a few days at any rate.'
` I shall like to see him,' Tom admitted frankly; ` he's going to take you back with him, isn't he ? '
` I believe so. He misses me, I expect-not that he sees a great deal of me when I'm at home, because he's away in the city all day, but we generally have a little while together in the evening. Listen! What's that row ?'
` I don't hear anything.'
` I do. Your ears are not as sharp as mine. It's far away, but it's coming nearer. I hear dogs barking, and men's voices shouting, and a cow bellowing.'
