Text Appearing Before Image:
henever ate any because he had a Conscience. This bear, replied the shaggy man, with a sigh,, hadno Conscience, you see.s The Road to Oz The shaggy man sat silent for several minutes, apparent-ly considering the cases of the bear and the tiger, while Totowatched him with an air of great interest. The little dog wasdoubtless thinking of his ride in the shaggy mans pocket andplanning to keep out of reach in the future. At last the shaggy man turned and inquired, Whatsyour name, little girl? My name s Dorothy, said she, jumping up again, butwhat are we going to do1? We cant stay here forever, youknow. Let s take the seventh road, he suggested. Seven isa lucky number for little girls named Dorothy. The seventh from where? From where you begin to count. So she counted seven roads, and the seventh looked justlike all the others; but the shaggy man got up from theground where he had been sitting and started down this roadas if sure it was the best way to go; and Dorothy and Totofollowed him.

Text Appearing After Image:
THE seventh road was a good road, and curved this way andthat — winding through green meadows and fields coveredwith daisies and buttercups and past groups of shady trees.There were no houses of any sort to be seen, and for some dis-tance they met with no living creature at all. Dorothy began to fear they were getting a good way fromthe farm-house, since here everything was strange to her; butit would do no good at all to go back where the other roadsall met, because the next one they chose might lead her justas far from home. She kept on beside the shaggy man, who whistled cheer- 27 The Road to Oz ful tunes to beguile the journey, until by-and-by they fol-lowed a turn in the road and saw before them a big chestnuttree making a shady spot over the highway. In theshade sat a little boy dressed in sailor clothes, who was dig-ging a hole in the earth with a bit of wood. He must havebeen digging some time, because the hole was already bigenough to drop a foot-ball into. Dorothy and Toto
