ar-01 Once there was a young rat named Arthur who never could make up his mind.

ar-02 Whenever his friends asked him if he would like to go out with them,

ar-03 he would only answer, "I don't know;" he wouldn't say yes or no either.

ar-04 He would always shirk making a choice. His Aunt Helen said to him,

ar-05 "Now look here! No one is going to care for you if you carry on like this.

ar-06 You have no more mind than a blade of grass."

ar-07 One rainy day the rats heard a great noise in the loft.

ar-08 The pine rafters were all rotten, so that the barn was rather unsafe.

ar-09 At last the joists gave way and fell to the ground.

ar-10 The walls shook, and all the rats' hair stood on end with fear and horror.

ar-11 "This won't do," said the captain; "I'll send out scouts to search for a new home."

ar-12 Within five hours the ten scouts came back and said,

ar-13 "We found a stone house where there is room for us all.

ar-14 There is a kindly horse named Nelly, a cow, a calf, and a garden with an elm tree."

ar-15 The rats crawled out of their little houses and stood on the floor in a long line.

ar-16 Just then the old rat saw Arthur. Stop. he ordered coarsely.

ar-17 "You are coming, of course." "I'm not certain," said Arthur, undaunted,

ar-18 "The roof may not come down yet."

ar-19 "Well," said the old rat, "we can't wait for you to join us. Right about face! March!"

ar-20 Arthur stood and watched them hurry away.

ar-21 "I think I'll go tomorrow," he said calmly to himself, "but then again I don't know;

ar-22 it's so nice and snug here,".  That night there was a big crash.

ar-23 In the foggy morning some men with some boys and girls rode up and looked at the barn.

ar-24 One of them moved a board and saw a rat quite dead, half in and half out of his hole.
