But one day the other witches In that part of the woods put their heads together and decided that Lillace would have to move to a different forest.

''That's 'no reason why she shouldn't~sweep~her house out once- a month, the way the rest of -us do." " "Wholl tell her to move? asked Gilofena. '1 won't." "I shall,"-said Vilace.. "I've old her more than once that I •going' to do something about those chewing gum pa- iers and this is-it." Lillace didn't make any fuss at all. "That's hbnkey dory with me," she said. "I was going to move again anyway, ril ust go farther out." She took her house down, put it in the wheelbarrow and started off. . . • Somehow or other the woods seemed awfully lonely without her.
