3) He examined his system. No illness or ailment was found and he investigated again. This time he thought he could detect some colicky symptoms, and he began to encourage them with considerable hope. But they soon grew feeble and died away.

4) Suddenly Tom discovered something. One of his upper teeth was loose. This was lucky. He was about to begin to groan when it suddenly occurred to him that his aunt would pull it out and it would hurt.

5) Nothing else offered for some time, and then he remembered hearing the doctor tell about a serious thing that threatened to make the patient lose a finger. So the boy eagerly drew his sore toe from under the sheet and held it for inspection. Then he fell to groaning with considerable spirit.

6) Finally Sid woke up and looked in his face anxiously. «Why, what’s the matter, Tom? 1 must call auntie.» Tom said groaning: «No, never mind. Don’t call anybqdy. I forgive you everything, Sid. When I am gone.»

7) Tom was suffering in reality now, so handsomely was his imagination working. Sid flew downstairs and cried: «Oh, Aunt Polly, come quick! Tom’s dying!» Her heart nearly sank. «I don’t believe it!»

8) But she fled upstairs nevertheless, with Sid and Mary at her heels. And her face grew white, too, and her lips were trembling. When she reached the bedside she gasped out: «What is the matter with you, child?»

9) «Oh, auntie, my sore toe’s mortified!» The old lady sank down into a chair and laughed a little, then cried a little, then did both together. This restored and calmed her down.
