"But there is a trailer hooked on behind," Greg reminded him patiently. "According to the map, this secondary road is under repair. Uo«v do we know we'll get through?" I Daggett beamed with a misleading cherubic look. "We don't. That's what makes it interest- tralto. Their 3i( blended an imaginary mustache, leered at her villainously. It was that kind of morning.

"How about Hannah?" "There's nothing broken but she'll probably be black and through the rest of their reper- ' blue tomorrow."

Even the car spun •t Jdown it as lightly as though it ' were driving itself, and jounced "' ;over the bumps in a jocund, > devil-may-care manner. ^ This was no road for powerful ^ cars and streamlined trailers. - 'Greg felt like an intruder on the 1 domestic life of the birds and the animals. .

He could not remember when he had yelled like that and it felt swell. He was sorry there were not more people along the road so he could shout at them. He came upon the little plank bridge so abruptly that, although he threw on the brake, the car did not stop at once. The weight of the front wheels snapped the planks and they crashed through. "Hang on," he yelled, and then he was flung against the wheel. When he could push himself back he leaned painfully over the car to look at Hannah.

"I believe the four of us could lift her," he said in a pleasant baritone voict that was vaguely familiar. "Before we do any fooling around, I'll get Mr. Daggett out of the car." Greg's tone warned the stranger who took a closer look at the older man, winced involuntarily, and then controlled his expression. With Rupert's help, Greg moved Daggett but, though he had sailed over the side and lay ' was shaken, the old man refused sprawled in the ditch. to go back to the trailer.
