Too Many Cherries
Only Two Quart* Billy, age seven, had been very ill. The doctor had been called. Evidently Evidently the cause of the illness had been too many cherries. A large cherry tree, full of ripe cherries, had been too tempting in spite of mother's mother's frequent words of caution. The doctor, who was a great friend of Billy's, said jokingly: "How many cherries do you think you nte, Billy?" "Oh, I don't know," groaned Billy. "Well, about how many?" asked the doctor. "Well," said Billy, hesitatingly, "I think that I ate about enough for two pies—about two quarts, 1 guess."
