[Written Especially for Children]

Bob's father was a soldier. He was going away in a few days and Bob did not know just where, or for how long. He and Bob had talked together about this, and the son knew that he had to be a soldier too. There would be many things to do about which he had never thought before, because father was going to depend upon him to help mother and to look after the house.

There was firewood to be brought up from the cellar, there were wastebaskets to be emptied there were errands to be run on his bicycle. He could hang up his clothes instead of leaving them on the floor, and could put away his boots instead of leaving them for mother to care for.
