"Boys [should be] inured from childhood to
trifling risks and slight dangers of every
possible description, such as tumbling into
ponds and off of trees, etc., in order to
strengthen their nervous system.... They
ought to practise leaping off heights into deep
water. They ought never to hesitate to cross a
stream over a narrow unsafe plank for fear of
a ducking. They ought never to decline to
climb up a tree, to pull fruit merely because
there is a possibility of their falling off and
breaking their necks. I firmly believe that boys
were intended to encounter all kinds of risks,
in order to prepare them to meet and grapple
with risks and dangers incident to man's
career with cool, cautious self-possession... R.M. Ballantyne, The Gorilla Hunters

Mole, Rat,
The Mole had been working very hard all the morning, spring-cleaning his little
home. First with brooms, then with dusters; then on ladders and steps and chairs, with a
brush and a pail of whitewash; till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of
whitewash all over his black fur, and an aching back and weary arms. … It was small
wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush on the floor, said 'Bother!' and 'O
blow!' and also 'Hang spring-cleaning!' and bolted out of the house without even waiting
to put on his coat. …
'Hold up!' said an elderly rabbit at the gap. 'Sixpence for the privilege of passing
by the private road!' He was bowled over in an instant by the impatient and
contemptuous Mole, who trotted along the side of the hedge chaffing the other rabbits as
they peeped hurriedly from their holes to see what the row was about. 'Onion-sauce!
Onion-sauce!' he remarked jeeringly, and was gone before they could think of a
thoroughly satisfactory reply. Then they all started grumbling at each other. 'How
STUPID you are! Why didn't you tell him——' 'Well, why didn't YOU say——' 'You might
have reminded him——' and so on, in the usual way; but, of course, it was then much
too late, as is always the case.

How They Broke Away to Go to the Rootabaga Country
Gimme the Ax lived in a house where everything is the same as it always was.
“The chimney sits on top of the house and lets the smoke out,” said Gimme the
Ax. “The doorknobs open the doors. The windows are always either open or shut. We
are always either upstairs or downstairs in this house. Everything is the same as it
always was.”
So he decided to let his children name themselves.
“The first words they speak as soon as they learn to make words shall be their
names,” he said. “They shall name themselves.”
When the first boy came to the house of Gimme the Ax, he was named Please Gimme.
When the first girl came she was named Ax Me No Questions.
And both of the children had the shadows of valleys by night in their eyes and
the lights of early morning, when the sun is coming up, on their foreheads. …
Please Gimme grew up and his ears got longer. Ax Me No Questions grew up
and her ears got longer. And they kept on living in the house where everything is the
same as it always was. They learned to say just as their father said, “The chimney sits
on top of the house and lets the smoke out, the doorknobs open the doors, the windows
are always either open or shut, we are always either upstairs or downstairs—everything
is the same as it always was.”
After a while they began asking each other in the cool of the evening after they
had eggs for breakfast in the morning, “Who’s who? How much? And what’s the
“It is too much to be too long anywhere,” said the tough old man, Gimme the
Ax. …
So they sold everything they had, pigs, pastures, 6 pepper pickers, pitchforks,
everything except their ragbags and a few extras.
When their neighbors saw them selling everything they had, the different
neighbors said, “They are going to Kansas, to Kokomo, to Canada, to Kankakee, to
Kalamazoo, to Kamchatka, to the Chattahoochee.” …
The ticket agent was sitting at the window selling railroad tickets the same as
always. …
“Do you wish a ticket to go away and come back or do you wish a ticket to go
away and never come back?” the ticket agent asked wiping sleep out of his eyes.
“We wish a ticket to ride where the railroad tracks run off into the sky and never
come back—send us far as the railroad rails go and then forty ways farther yet,” was the
reply of Gimme the Ax.
