Unwinding One's Snarls

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Louise is a little girl who lives on a big farm in the country, and Francis, her older cousin, lives next door to her, so they often play together and are very fond of each other. However, something about their play troubled Louise very much. It seemed that it nearly always ended in a quarrel or some unhappiness, and Francis went home angry.

Now Louise attended the Christian Science Sunday School every Sunday morning, and she had learned there that error is not made by God, good, and therefore quarreling and unhappiness have no place in our lives. But she didn't see how to get rid of the quarrels.

Living on a farm as she did, Louise had not only dolls to play with, but live animals for friends and pets, too. There was Copper the horse, and Mollie the Jersey cow, and, best of all, her cocker puppy. The puppy's name was Golden Girl, because her silky hair was a beautiful golden color; however, Louise called her Wrinkles, because her pretty little face was all wrinkles, where she had lots of room to grow in becoming a bigger dog.
