I-want-Gwen-Gascoyne!"The speaker-Ida Bridge-a small, perky, spindle-legged Junior, jumped on to the nearest seat, andraising her shrill voice to its topmost pitch, twice shouted the "Gwen Gascoyne", with an aggressiveenergy calculated to make herself heard above the babel of general chatter that pervaded theschoolroom.

Scoot!"The "kid", however, stood her ground."Shan't move till you've answered my question," she replied with aggravating impudence.

Get down from my desk, I tell you!"The Junior cast what was intended to be a withering glance before she descended."Gwen Gascoyne, why couldn't you answer when I called you?" she demanded abruptly.Gwen paused in the act of sharpening a lead pencil, and eyed the intruder."Who asked you to come in here?" she retorted."You babes must keep to your own classrooms!
