Then they went on a little farther, and soon heard the sound of a drum and fife. Daffydowndilly pricked up his ears at this and besought his companion to hurry forward, that they might not miss seeing the soldiers.

" Quick step! Forward march!" shouted a gruff voice.
Little Daffydowndilly started in great dismay; for this voice which had spoken to the soldiers sounded precisely the same as that which he had heard every day in Mr. Toil's schoolroom, out of Mr. Toil's own mouth. And, turning his eyes to the captain of the company, what should he see
