COUNTRY LOON, the [3889]

A warm-hearted comic tale, very much in the "Frank Marshall style", on the virtue of honesty. A boy playing by a river helps a wealthy estate owner and is given a silver coin as reward. Discovering he has lost the money when he tries to buy a toy boat, he returns to the river where he meets the older man again, who generously replaces it. The boy then buys his boat but finds the first coin by his spot on the river. He takes it to the wealthy man's mansion, explains, and is allowed to keep it for his honesty.
