    They closed the tent-door to keep out the terrible blaze of the sun, stretched themselves on the mats, and slept until just now, when the night-wind began to come. Her sisters' children were as if they had been her own, and she revelled in all their wonderful manifestations and development. I believe you would call them black, but they are not really quite so. They stopped at the door and asked for milk: the mother brought them brimming bowlsfull, and the shy little girl crept up behind her mother with her birch-bark baskets of berries. Good, patient camels! He sits very still, and his earnest eyes are fixed on those distant hills.

    I am afraid you won't like it. That is the door; but one must creep on hands and knee to enter. There is something like a little yard built all around this boat; in it are ducks — more ducks than you can well count. She was a precocious child, early matured, and strong in intellectual and emotional experiences. This is the way Agoonack lives through the long darkness. Perhaps you have in your own house or in your schoolroom pictures of some of the pretty things that may have been there, — little children and ladies dressed in flowery gowns, with fans in their hands, tea-tables and pretty dishes, a great many lovely flowers and beautiful birds.

    When every thing is bright and beautiful in nature around us, we feel like singing aloud, and praising God who made the earth so beautiful; then the earth also seems to sing of God who made it, and the echo seems like its answer of praise. It warms the small house, which has but one room, and over it the mother hangs a shallow dish in which she cooks soup; but most of the meat is eaten raw, cut into long strips, and eaten much as one might eat a stick of candy. She, too, must look into the swinging bed, and shine on the closed eyes of the little brown baby. They were all friends, and in a very sympathetic and eager attitude of mind, you may well believe: for in the midst, by the centre-table, sits Jane, who has called them together; and knowing that she has really written a book, each one feels almost that she herself has written it in some unconscious way, because each feels identified with Jane's work, and is ready to be as proud of it, and as sure of it, as all the world is now of the success of Miss Jane Andrews's writings for the boys and girls in these little stories of geography and history which bear her name.

I would like to bring before young people who have read her books some qualities of her mind and character which made her the rare woman, teacher, and writer that she was.

Can you guess, or must I tell you that it was the little girl's mother? She said that happiness was to have an unselfish work to do, and the power to do it.

I tell you this, that you may also play in tents some day, if you haven't already. Brave men have gone to those lonely places, to come back and tell us about them; and, alas!

It looks like the great brick oven that used to be in our old kitchen, where, when I was a little girl, I saw the fine large loves of bread and the pies and puddings pushed carefully in with a long, flat shovel, or drawn out with the same when the heat had browned them nicely.

But all this heat comes from a sort of lamp, with long wicks of moss, and plenty of walrus fat to burn. While we had the sunshine, she had night; and now, when night is coming to us, it is morning for her.

This rolled-up ball unrolls itself, tumbles off the seat, and runs to meet them. Her mamma has sewed them from the skins of birds, with the soft down upon them to keep the small brown feet very warm. She accepted the situation which her uniform correctness of judgment assured to her, while she always accorded generous praise and deference to those who excelled her in departments where she made no pretence of superiority.

The Seven Little Sisters by Jane Andrews

The Seven Little Sisters Who Live on the Round Ball that Floats in the Air book She was born among the hills where the tea grows with its glossy, myrtle-like leaves, and white fragrant blossoms. See, the sun has gone from them. You must know that a little way down the mountain-side is a grove of chestnut-trees.

Is this an oven standing out here alone in the snow? They ride until the stars are out, and after, but stop for a few hours' rest in the night, to begin the next day as they began this.

The sun looks down upon them through the yellow leaves, and the rocks give them mossy seats; while here and there comes a bird or a squirrel to see what these strange people are doing in their wood.

Sometimes at night, after the day's work is over, the ducks have come home, and the stars have come out, she sits at the door of the boat-house, and watches the great fireflies over the marshes, and thinks of the blue lake Syhoo, covered with lilies, where gilded boats are sailing, and the people seem so happy.

Let all the house, from floor to ceiling, look Its noblest and its best; For it may chance that soon may come to me A most imperial guest A prouder visitor than ever yet Has crossed my threshold o'er, One wearing a royal sceptre and a crown Shall enter at my door; [Page 26] Shall deign, perchance, sit at my board an hour, And break with me my bread; Suffer, perchance, this night my honored roof Shelter his kingly head.

Her hair is straight and black, hanging softly down each side of her small brown face; nothing at all like Bell's golden curls or Marnie's sunny brown ones. She seemed always to have considered carefully any thing she talked about, and gave her opinion with a deliberation and clear conviction which affected others as a verdict, and made her an oracle to a great many kinds of people.

There she takes a job doing what she loves; caring for animals on the vast and isolated Kinnaird estate, employed by the enigmatic and troubled Laird, Charlie Kinnaird.Her first book was Seven Little Sisters Who Live on the Round Ball That Floats in the Air ().
