Perhaps my readers may be wondering what the goblins could be about working all night long, seeing they never carried up. The Oran sold it. But when I have informed them concerning what Kurdi learned the very next night, they will be able to understand for Kirti, hand determined if his father would permit him to remain there alone this night, and that for two reasons. First, he wanted to get extra wages in order that he might buy a very warm red petticoat for his mother, who had began to complain of the cold of the mountain air sooner than usual this autumn. And second, he had just a faint glimmering of hope of finding out what the goblins were about under his window the night before, when he told his father he made no objection for he had great confidence in his boys courage and resources. I'm sorry, I can't stay with you, said Peter, but I want to go and pay the parson a visit this evening on. Besides, I've had a bit of a headache all day
