 3 Anna had never seen a squirrel in her life, although she had always
   wanted to very much. One day when she was playing under a tree she

 7 Once a black raven wanted to have white feathers like a swan. The raven
   saw that the swan lived in the water, and thought it was the water that
   made the swan's feathers so white. So the............. decided to wash
   his feathers every day to see if it would not make them..............

 8 Birds' eggs are almost as different from each other as are the birds
   themselves. The robin lays four or five blue eggs. The dove lays two
   white eggs. The sparrow lays six or eight speckled eggs. If we should
   find a nest with four blue eggs in it, we could be pretty sure that it
   was the nest of a............. rather than of a............. or dove.

 9 Once there lived on a mountain near a village an immense giant whose
   cruelty kept the people of the village in great terror. However, there

11 When the bear appeared near the hut, Walter was alone. His father had

14 Richard and Miss Cabot quickly found their way alone to the house of

   her to come in. As soon as she had done so. Miss Cabot introduced
   herself to Mr.............. and begged him to come out and talk with
   ............., who was waiting outside in the carriage.

15 Joe made up a game which he called "Jac-alack." One person called Jack
   must climb a tree and hang by his arms from a low bough. The others
   stand behind him and say in unison, "Alas, alack, he fell on his back,"
   and while they are saying it, one of them hits Jack with a bean bag. If
   Jack can see or guess who did it, he may drop down, and the guilty
   person takes his place. Otherwise he has to............. there for
   another turn and sing out, "Alas, alack, another whack." It is quite a
   game and Jack must have strong..............

16 It is well established that the bee, which is commonly supposed to be

18 Energy is a measure of the fullness of life and is indispensable for

20 Some historians believe that the spread of anti-slavery feeling among

21 If I were writing about the rich, I should be inclined to divide them,
   according to their attitude toward life, into workers and parasites.
   The motto of the worker is, "I owe the world a life," and the motto of
   the.................. is, "The.................. owes me a living."

22 Caution, when not present in excess, is a desirable trait. Often it
   saves one from disappointment or failure. Occasionally, however, one
   finds a person so extremely.................. that his will is
   paralyzed and he is totally unable to set about any new undertaking.
   Too much.................. is indeed often.................. than too
   little.

23 A whale is not a fish, even though it does live in water. A fish has no
   lungs, is cold-blooded, and absorbs oxygen from the water through its
   gills; but a whale is warm-blooded and has a genuine set of lungs. In
   consequence, in bodily structure the is.................. like a
   shark, which is a true fish, than it is like a horse.

24 The brook on our farm has many whims. It ripples over bright and shiny
   rocks, and falls into a placid little pool so clear that I can see the
   pebbles on the bottom and can see myself down there, too. As I look
   straight down, it is hard to tell whether what I see is my nose or a

25 To pant for recognition, to yearn to impress one's personality upon
   one's fellow-men, is the essence of ambition. The ambitious person may
   think that he merely thirsts to "do something" or "be somebody" but
   really what he craves is to figure potently in the minds of others, to
   be greatly loved, admired, or feared. To reap a success which no one
   .................. does not satisfy the yearnings of the
   .................. individual.

26 Washington was a very silent man. Of no man in the world's history do
   we have so few sayings of a personal kind. As for talking about
   himself, that was something in which he almost never indulged. Yet it
   would be a great error to interpret his.................. as an
   indication that he was in any sense cold or unfeeling.

27 As a rule, it is more economical to remember things by associating them
   clearly and vigorously than by going through many repetitions of them.
   Thus, a clear understanding of the causes for the Democratic victory in
   the national election in 1916 will be.................. effective in
   remembering the fact than a dozen.................. of the statement
   "Woodrow Wilson was elected in 1916."

28 Fundamentally, education depends upon the capacity of a person to
   profit by past experiences. Past situations modify present and future
   adjustments. Education in its broadest sense means acquiring
   experiences that serve to.................. existing inherited or
   acquired tendencies of behavior.

29 "Naïve" and "unsophisticated" are frequently confused. The former
   suggests a type of behavior which is artless, spontaneous, and free
   from the restraints of custom. The latter implies fully as great lack
   of knowledge of social usage, and, in addition, conduct which is
   primitive and perchance inelegant. Thus, the.................. youth
   was the first to enter the car, and his.................. little
   sister warmly kissed him in the presence of the king. We may also say
   that a country boy is.................. with respect to city life and
   customs.

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
