Excerpt

"Oh, John, stop him!" she screamed.

"Whoa, Banker, whoa!" shouted a man who came running after the animal.

Blumpo was so scared by the accident that he uttered a short yell.

The horse disappeared from sight for a brief space of time and then came up and began to churn the water madly in an endeavor to save himself from drowning.

The little girl was nowhere to be seen.

"My child! my child!" she shrieked. "Save my Cora!"
