who was considered to be the lion-trainer's child, was actually Grace Lee, and when, a few minutes later, he moved on with his father, he told him what lie thought.

` What a plucky little thing she must be!' cried Tom, excitedly. 'You'll let me go and see her performance with the lions on Monday, won't you, Father ?'
' I hardly know,' Mr Burford answered hesitatingly; ` I don't altogether approve of that sort of entertainment, because I don't believe that lions can be trained by kindness, especially forest-bred animals.

I begin to see, Tom, that those Sordellos may have been prompted by a selfish motive when they adopted that little orphan -no doubt she adds considerably to the liontrainer's earnings.'
` Yes, of course,' Tom agreed. His face had become very thoughtful and grave. 'Poor little girl,' he said, pityingly; ` I wonder if she is afraid of the lions? I know Nellie wouldd be in her place.'

Then the conversation turned upon Nellie, and in talking of his dearly loved sister Tom forgot every one else for the time. Later his thoughts reverted to Grace Lee, and lie went to bed with the determination to visit Hatwell Green on the morrow, and tell the gipsies all about her.
'One thing is quite certain,' he said to himself, I and that is that she's very miserable. I never saw any little girl with such an unhappy face before. And she seemed so frightened! I wonder what she was afraid of? I shall try to find out!'
