A farmer had sonic kittens he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the kittens and ser about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

"Uncle,' he said, f 'I want to buy one of your kittens."

"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat oft" the back of his neck, "these kittens come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents, Is that enough to take a look?"

"Sure," said the farmer.

And with that he let out a whistle, "Here, Dolly!" he called. Out from the kennel and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the kittenss made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the kennel.

Slowly another little ball appeared; this one noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner the little kitty began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up..,.

"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt.

The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, 'Son, you don't want that kitten. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other kittenss would,"

With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers.

In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the fanner, he said,

"You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and the kitty will need someone who understands."
