AMY BELL MARLOWE'S BOOKS FOR GIRLS
"Charming, Fresh, and Original Stories
"Miss Marlowe's books for girls are somewhat of the type of
Miss Alcott and also Mrs. Meade's; but all are thoroughly up-to-date and
wholly American in scene and action. Good, clean, absorbing tales that all
girls thoroughly enjoy."
"Oh, girls! such news!" cried Wynifred Mallory, banging open the door of Canoe Lodge, and bringing into the living room a big breath of he cool May air, which drew out of the open fireplace a sudden balloon of smoke, setting the other members of the Go-Ahead Club there assembled coughing.
Grace Hedges, who was acting as fireman that week, turned an exasperated face, with a bar of smut across it, exclaiming:
"If another soul comes in that door and creates a back-draught until the fire gets to burning properly, I certainly shall have hysterics! I never did see such a mean old thing to burn."
"Never mind Gracie. We're all here now -- all six of us. There are no more Go-Aheads to come," observed Bessie Lavine, yawning over her book in the only sunny corner of the room.
"There! It's burning -- finally," exclaimed Grace, with blended disgust and thankfulness. "I never was cut out for a fireman, girls."
"Poor Gracie," purred Wyn, who had approached the blaze that was now beginning to curl through the hickory sticks piled more or less scientifically against the backlog. "Don't you know it needed just that back-draught to break the deadlock in the chimney and start your fire crackling this way?"
"Bah! It was just hateful," grumbled Grace. "I hate fire
making. And it does seem as though my week for playing fireman comes around
twice as often as it should." Wyn had moved rather too near the darting
flames, and Grace suddenly pulled the captain of the club aside.
