PAULINE'S FLAG

Pauline dropped the napkin she was hemming and, leaning back in her
chair, stared soberly down into the rain-swept garden.

Overhead, Patience was having a "clarin' up scrape" in her particular
corner of the big garret, to the tune of "There's a Good Time Coming."

would go right by on the main road, they always did.

"'There's a good time coming,'" Patience insisted shrilly, "'Help it
on! Help it on!'"

Pauline drew another quick breath. She would help them on! If they
would none of them stop on their own account, they must be flagged.
