Arthur had a box of paints given him for Christmas, and he had learned to color pictures very prettily; so just
as he was finishing the dress of a gorgeous Japanese lady such a happy thought came to him that he nearly
spilled some yellow paint all over Miss Matsuki's gay pink dress, in his haste to find mother and tell her about
it.

“I want to make my valentines all myself this year,” he exclaimed excitedly as soon as the yellow paint was
safely back in the box, “for now I can paint. Why can't I paint some valentines, same's Aunt Frances did last
year?”

“Why, I think you could, dear,” mother answered.

“'Course I don't mean I could make quite such lovely flowers as she did,” Arthur went on, “but I think it
would be lots more fun to do it myself than to buy them.”

“So do I, Arthur,” mother said, “and I think if you look through those papers in the lower drawer you'll find
some pictures to cut out that would make pretty valentines. Then you could color them with your paints and
paste them on a sheet of note paper.”

“But, mother, don't valentines have some verses written on them besides the pictures? Aunt Frances' did.
Where can I get those?”

“Perhaps I could write those for you,” mother laughed, “if I tried real hard.”

“Could you really write verses?” Arthur asked in round-eyed wonder. “Then we'll have some lovely
valentines, won't we? I'll make one for you, and one for father, and Alice and John and Clifton and Barbara
and oh, lots of folks.”

“Well, I guess you better get to work right away, if you've such a lot to do,” advised mother, “and I had better
begin on the poetry.”

It was fun to find the pictures, for there were such a lot to select from, and by supper time Arthur had a nice
pile all ready to paint next morning.

Two days before Valentine's day they were all done—prettily colored and pasted on note paper with a little
verse that mother had written, printed in Arthur's very best writing.

“Aren't they bee-u-ti-ful,” he exclaimed as he laid them in a row on the dining-room table.

“They are very nice, dear,” mother said, “and which do you think are the prettiest
ones?”

Arthur looked a long time at the row of little valentines and then he said, “These two.” One had
a little curly-haired child carrying a big bunch of flowers in her hand, and the verse read:

“This bunch of roses I'm bringing,


Is a valentine for you,
To show that in storm or in sunshine
My love is always true.”
And the other valentine had a picture of two little boys carrying a big basket between them, and this was the
little verse:

The Project Gutenberg eBook of Dew Drops, Vol. 37, No. 7.

“What do you s'pose our basket holds?


Give guess one and two.
You'll never think, so I must tell:
It's full of love for you.”
“And to whom are you going to give the two prettiest ones?” asked mother.

An earnest look came into Arthur's eyes.

“I fought I'd send the little-girl one to that lame boy at the corner. I don't know him very well, but he
looks kind of lonely, you said, mother. Don't you s'pose he'd like it?”

Mother nodded. “And who is to have the other?”

A little hand stole into mother's, and two brown eyes full of love were lifted to mother's face.

“That is for you,” he said.

“BOB'S LOST HIS TEMPER.”


Uncle Will, visiting in the family, heard this remark quite often. One day he said to Bob:

“I think it rather a fortunate loss, don't you?”

“What?” asked Bob, in surprise. “It wasn't a very good one, you know. If I were you I'd
try to get a better one, and then never lose it.”

Good advice for Bob.

GOING ALONE.
“I'm afraid will have to go alone this morning, Harlis,” said mamma. “My head is
getting worse instead of better. You think it will be all right for Harlis to go, don't you, papa?”

Mrs. Wentworth looked up inquiringly into the face of a tall man who had just entered the room.

“Certainly. He is big enough, and knows the way. Why not let him go?” her husband answered.

Harlis was quite proud to hear that opinion, and adopting something of his papa's emphatic tone, he said,
“Of course, I'm big enough, mamma. Willie Nelson goes every single Sunday alone, and he isn't only
two weeks older than I am. You needn't worry a bit. I'll take Esther, too, if you want me to. I'll take care of
her.”

Mamma smiled a little as she answered, “No, dear, I thank you just the same, but Annie will take care
of Esther this morning. If I let you go alone, you must promise to go straight to Sunday-school.”

“Yes, mamma,” answered Harlis, very willingly.

Proudly he walked down the street. He felt sure everyone was noticing him. One of the newsboys ran past him
and shouted, “Hello, little chap!” and grinned.

“BOB'S LOST HIS TEMPER.” 4

Mamma had said, “Be a good boy, Harlis,” before he left home. He couldn't help feeling how
foolish it was for her always to say that, but he excused her with the thought that it was probably mamma-like
to be a little anxious and worried about such things.

“Harlis! Harlis!”

Harlis was just entering one of the chief business streets through which he had to pass to reach the church. He
turned and saw Willie Nelson running as fast as his little legs could carry him to catch up.

“All alone?” Willie asked.

“Yes.”

“So'm I. My mamma can't come to Sunday-school. She makes me go, though. I don't care much. Let's
go this way.”

“No. I can't. Mamma said for me to go just the same way I always did. I promised.”

“Did you? My, I go the way I want to. This is just as good as any,” he added cheerfully.
“Let's look in here. Ain't that fine?”

It was a display in the candy shop they were looking at. Across the window, hung from the gas jet by ribbons,
was a huge candy cane.

“See that,” said Willie, pulling out from his pocket a five-cent piece. “Know what I am
going to do with it?”

“Take it to Miss Beatrice for the poor little girl she told about.”

“No, sir. Going to get some candy. Five cents don't get much, though. Not the best kind. That costs
money.”

Harlis put his hand in his pocket and quickly pulled it out. But the action did not escape Willis' sharp eyes.

“You got any?” he asked.

“Yes.”

“Let's see. Oh, a nickel! Thought maybe it was just a penny. What a lot ten cents would get. What kind
do you like best?”

“I like chocolate best.”

“Do you? Why, so do I. Say we get some?”

“I don't believe mamma would like it. She said we mustn't buy things on Sunday.”

“She'll never know. That's nothing bad, either.”

When the collection basket was passed around, Harlis looked almost ready to cry. “Did you forget your
money?” said Miss Beatrice, pleasantly. Harlis so seldom came without it that it was noticeable.

GOING ALONE. 5
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Dew Drops, Vol. 37, No. 7.

“Yes'm,” answered the little boy, almost without thinking what he was saying. He was so
uncomfortable, and Willie was making eyes at him.

“Never mind, bring it next Sunday,” said Miss Beatrice, noticing the flushed face and telltale
eyes, and not understanding quite what it meant.

If mamma had not been sick, the trouble would surely have come out earlier, because mamma would have
seen in a minute that something was wrong. After the late dinner, there was nothing to do but cuddle up in the
corner of the sofa with his books. Just as it was growing dark, papa came down from the sick room. He found
Harlis with his head buried in the sofa cushion.

“What's the matter?” said papa briskly, picking up his little boy. “Lonesome? Too bad!
Thought you went to Aunt Lucy's with Esther.”

“I didn't want to,” said Harlis, breaking out in big, shaking sobs.

Papa knew something was wrong, then, and by degrees the story came out.

Papa said very little, for he seemed to understand the real suffering Harlis had already gone through because
of his wrongdoings.

“But the nickel was mine,” said Harlis, as he and mamma were talking it over.

“Was it?” said mamma. “What did I give it to you for?”

“For the poor little girl.”

“You can put it back, but you must earn it,” she said.

“Oh, I will! I will!” Harlis was only too glad to do this. “And I'll never do so again,
mamma.”

And his mamma felt sure he never would.

THE LIGHT OF A SMILE.


If it drizzles and pours,
Is there any reason
The weather indoors
Should be dull, like the season?
There is something makes bright
The cloudiest places;
Can you guess? 'Tis the light
Of the smiles on your faces.

THE LIGHT OF A SMILE. 6

By Elizabeth P. Allan
“Davie boy, I wish you would get up early to-morrow morning,” said Mrs. Forbes; “I
want your help in sending out some valentines.”

Davie opened his sleepy eyes wide. “Why, mother,” he said, “I did not know that you
were in the valentine business!”

“There hasn't been a fourteenth of February since I can remember,” answered his mother
smiling, “that I haven't sent out at least one valentine. Do you know what Valentine Day means,
Davie?”

“It means sending funny pictures to the other fellows,” grinned Davie.

“First of all, it means a Love Day,” said Mrs. Forbes, “and valentines are supposed to be
sweethearts' love letters. But I don't see why sweethearts should have a corner on love, do you,
Davie?”

By Elizabeth P. Allan 7
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Dew Drops, Vol. 37, No. 7.

“What sort of valentines do you send, mother?” asked the little boy. His curiosity had waked
him up and made him forget that the hands of the clock had left his bedtime far behind.

“My valentines used to be made of little pictures cut out and pasted on a card or a piece of note paper,
when I was no older than you,” said Davie's mother; “and my mother used to write on them in
her fine, copy-book hand, little verses like this:

“‘The rose is red,


The violet's blue,
Sugar's sweet,
And so are you!’”
Davie laughed aloud at the idea of his mother ever having been such a little girl.

“And then, when I was in my teens,” she went on, “I saved my dimes and bought fine
valentines made of silver paper cut into hearts and cupids, with what I thought beautiful
‘poetry’ printed on them.”

“And what are your valentines like now?” asked Davie.

“You'll find them rather heavy, I'm afraid,” said his mother merrily; “you see, Davie, I
have found out that Love has something else to do besides playing with silver hearts and cupids, though that's
all right too. There are some poor and tired and lonely people in the world who don't want you to give them
money, or to offer them help on most days of the year; it hurts their feelings. But on love-days, like
Christmas, and Thanksgiving, and Valentine's Day, you can give them a love gift, and they are pleased. I have

some like that for you to carry around to-morrow.”

When Davie came downstairs early the next morning, he brought with him one of his cherished “Peter
Rabbit” books. “Mother,” he said, “I want to begin to keep Valentine Day like
you do.”

So “Peter Rabbit” found himself tucked in Mrs. Tobin's bundle for Jack Tobin, who had never
had that sort of valentine, or indeed any sort, in his life. And it was queer how all day long the thought of that
new sort of valentine he had sent out made Davie smile to himself!

VALENTINES.
The wind was blowing down our street,
And it was snowing some;
But I watched from the chilly porch
To see the postman come.
Across the street to Elsie's door;
And then I meant to run
Before she got the valentine—
I knew that she'd get one.
I knew it would be beautiful,
With lace and hearts and things,
And pretty verses on the leaves,
And tied with ribbon strings.
I knew the verses all by heart;
I knew the bows were pink;
The hearts were gold; the lace was white—
Oh, what would Elsie think!
I saw the postman come at last,
And Elsie at the door;
She got a valentine, sure 'nough—
I knew she would before.
And then I hid inside our hall;
And, when his whistle blew,
The postman called: “Hello! hello!—
A valentine for you!”
Sure 'nough, I got a valentine,
With lace and hearts and things,
And pretty verses on the leaves,
And tied with ribbon strings.
And I have wondered, ever since,
And guessed if Elsie knew
For sure I'd get a valentine,
Before the postman blew,
Just like I knew that she'd get one
And knew her verses, too.
I never s'posed that I'd get one—
Do you guess Elsie knew?

VALENTINES. 9

A TREE TALK.
What a wonderful thing a tree is! A live thing, a useful thing, a beautiful thing, and so common that we
scarcely think of it as a wonder at all.

Think of the great families of trees, the maple, the beech, the birch, the hemlock, the spruce, the oak, and so
on and on and on. So many alike, and yet each one different. What a world of wonders!

In the human family there are oddities, you know, and so in the tree family.

There is the whistling tree, for instance. It grows in the West India Islands. It bears pods with open edges, and
the wind passing through them makes the whistling sound which gives the tree its name.

Then there is the cow tree, which yields a delicious creamy milk. This tree grows in South America, and often
looks like a dead tree, but if it is tapped the milk will flow out freely. Sunrise is “milking time,”
when the natives come with their jugs and fill them with the sweet, nourishing fluid.—Selected.

“Oh,” said Millicent, watching the postman's blue coat up the street. “I wish he would
come here day after to-morrow and bring me twenty valentines!”

“Will he, Mitty?” Jimmy-Boy asked eagerly.

Millicent shook her head. “'Course not, Jimmy-Boy. I know only six little girls; I couldn't get but
six.”

Aunt Sara was listening. She was Millicent's very prettiest auntie from the city, and she nearly always found a
way to help.

“How would you like to send twenty valentines?” she asked.

Millicent laughed. “Why, auntie, I couldn't send but six, either. I don't know any more girls. Besides, I
haven't any more valentines.”

“Suppose I should show you how to make twenty valentines, and find twenty little girls to send them
to; would you like, to do it?”

Millicent came running from the window with Jimmy-Boy close behind her.

“I'd love to, auntie! Please show me right away.”

“Love to, auntie, right away,” echoed Jimmy-Boy.

A TREE TALK. 10
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Dew Drops, Vol. 37, No. 7.
“You can help,” Aunt Sara promised. “You can bring the mucilage while Millicent gets
the scissors.”

When they came back with these, Aunt Sara had a pile of gay pictures on the table, and some sheets of thick
white paper.

“We will cut this into hearts,” she said, “and you can cut out these birds and flowers and
paste them on. Let's see which can make the neatest and prettiest ones.”

Jimmy-Boy had to be helped a little in cutting out pictures, but he had learned to paste neatly at kindergarten,
and his valentines were so pretty it was hard for Aunt Sara to choose between his and Millicent's.

It was such fun making them that Millicent almost forgot about the twenty little girls they were to go to.

“Who are they, auntie?” she asked when she remembered. “Where do they live?”

“Away down in the city,” Aunt Sara explained. “Each one in a little white bed in a
Children's Hospital. I don't know their names, but I'll send them to the superintendent, and they will get them
safely on Valentine's Day. You can't think how happy they will be.”

“Oh, I just like to try to think!” cried Millicent. “I'm glad we made them so
nice.”

The twenty valentines went off in their white envelopes the next morning.

A TREE TALK. 11
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Dew Drops, Vol. 37, No. 7.

On Valentine's Day the postman brought Milly six from the six little girls and two from Jimmy-Boy and Aunt
Sara. They were lovely, and there were some for Jimmy-Boy, but they did not please the children nearly as
much as a letter that came a week later.

It was from the hospital superintendent and said: “I wish you could have seen my dear little sick girls
smile when they saw their pretty valentines. They looked at them all day and slept with them under their
pillows at night. One tiny girl kept hers in her hand. They all send a big ‘Thank-you’ to
Millicent and Jimmy-Boy.”

“Next year we'll begin sooner and make forty,” Millicent decided; “it's lots more fun
than getting them, isn't it, Jimmy-Boy?”

HAROLD'S SHETLAND PONY.


On Harold's birthday Uncle George gave him a Shetland pony.

I never saw anyone so surprised as Harold was. He thanked his uncle so many times that I thought Uncle
George would be all tired out saying, “You're welcome.”

The week of the Flower Festival here in Santa Barbara, where we live, Harold drove his pony in the parade.

The carriage was all covered with pink roses. There were roses all over the canopy top, and all over the
dashboard, and along the sides, and up the back, and on the seat where Harold sat. And the pony had a collar
of roses, and the roses were wreathed in the harness and wound in the wheels.

Harold enjoyed the parade very much, but he never thought of taking a prize till the money was sent to him.
He was as pleased as could be.

“What will you buy with the money, Harold?” I asked.

“Well, you see,” said Harold, “the money doesn't really belong to me. It belongs to the
Shetland pony, and I would like to talk about what would be the nicest thing to do for the pony.”

So we all talked about it and decided that the nicest thing we could do for the pony would be to put a big
screen window in the front of his stall, so he would not be troubled with flies.—Selected.

FLO'S VALENTINE
“I wonder where I'd better send
This valentine.” said Flo;
“It's pretty, and my dearest friend
Would like it much, I know.
“My dearest friend is Nelly May;
She'll have a lot, I s'pose;
She always does, for she's a girl
'Most everybody knows.
“I want to send it awful bad
To Nelly May, for she
Will likely send her loveliest one
To her dear friend—that's me.

“But there is little Molly Jones—
She said, the other day.
She'd never had a valentine
In all her life; now say,
“I've half a mind to send her this;
'Twill s'prise her so, you see.
That won't be selfish, for I know
She'll not send one to me.
“And Nelly May won't miss it, for
She'll have so many; so
I'll start right off and mail it now
As quick as I can go.”

HOW BLANCA SAVED THE KITTENS.


Blanca was a pretty fox terrier who lived on the fourth floor of a big apartment house, and the four kittens
were her adopted family. For when the kittens' mother died and left them wee, helpless babies, Blanca at once
proved the kindness of her heart by taking and caring for them as if they had been her very own.

One day a great danger came to Blanca and her family, as well as to everyone else in the building. A blue mist
began to drift through the halls, there was the smell of smoke, then someone cried “Fire!” and
the people in the different flats rushed out of their rooms in a panic.

Quickly a big, shiny, brass fire engine rattled up, followed by the hose cart, and the wagon loaded with long
ladders if they should be needed. The firemen rushed in, dragging lengths of hose, the smoke grew thicker and
the confusion worse.

Some of the people were so frightened that they did not know what they were doing. But there was one who
did not lose her presence of mind, and that was the little dog. When the first alarm was given, Blanca ran
down to see what it all meant. But she was not satisfied to be safe herself, and leave her foster babies in
danger. Up she went again, up the stairways filled with firemen and excited tenants to the top floor, and down
she came jumping over hose pipe, dodging between firemen's legs, with a kitten in her mouth.

This she carried out and laid down where it would be safe, then started back again through smoke and flame
and heat. Four times she made the trip to the top floor, and each time she came back with a kitten in her
mouth. Nor did she rest till they were all out of danger.

All the people who had watched the little dog said how brave she was. And so we all say. But what made
Blanca brave was because she thought of the kittens instead of herself.—Written for Dew Drops by
Adele E. Thompson.

Learn to treat everybody with respect and consideration.

A good friend is worth trying to keep.

Freddy's Way.
When the clock struck eleven, Freddy turned from the window where he had been watching for nearly an hour
and he said: “Guess Dan has forgotten to come for me. I think I'd better write a letter to
mother.” His aunt, whom he was visiting, answered:

“That will be a sensible thing to do, dear.”

Freddy worked very hard on his letter. When it was finished, he said: “It doesn't look as nice as it
might, but I guess mother will know I tried to do my best.” His aunt replied:

LESSON HYMN. 18
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Dew Drops, Vol. 37, No. 7.

“I'm sure she will, anyway, the main thing was to keep your promise and write to her.”

Presently, Freddy took his cap and went outdoors to find amusement for himself; it was a beautiful warm day,
just the kind when a boy loves to go swimming, and he thought longingly of the river. But his aunt did not
wish him to go alone, and for some reason Dan had failed to call for him. The next-door neighbor was
mowing his lawn and Freddy asked: “Need any help?” The man answered:

“Sure, I was just wishing for a boy to rake the grass.”

Freddy set about his work whistling and the neighbor never guessed that his small helper had had a
disappointment that morning. It was Freddy's happy way when he could not do one thing to find another and
do that cheerily.—Written for Dew Drops by Marie Deacon Hanson.

A Good Rule.
We have the wisest teacher, and she has
given this rule
That helps us in our lessons—you can use
it in your school.
Always add a smile or two when things
are going wrong,
Subtract the frowns that try to come
when lessons seem too long,
Then multiply your efforts when the
figures won't come right,
Divide your pleasures day by day with
every one in sight
Now if you always use this rule you'll
have a happy day,
For lessons then are easy, and the hours
fly away.

electronic work, you indicate that you have read, understand, agree to
and accept all the terms of this license and intellectual property
(trademark/copyright) agreement. If you do not agree to abide by all

The Project Gutenberg eBook of Dew Drops, Vol. 37, No. 7.
If you paid a fee for obtaining a copy of or access to a Project
Gutenberg-tm electronic work and you do not agree to be bound by the
terms of this agreement, you may obtain a refund from the person or
entity to whom you paid the fee as set forth in paragraph 1.E.8.

1.B. "Project Gutenberg" is a registered trademark. It may only be


used on or associated in any way with an electronic work by people who
agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement. There are a few
things that you can do with most Project Gutenberg-tm electronic works
even without complying with the full terms of this agreement. See
paragraph 1.C below. There are a lot of things you can do with Project
Gutenberg-tm electronic works if you follow the terms of this agreement
and help preserve free future access to Project Gutenberg-tm electronic
works. See paragraph 1.E below.

1.C. The Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation ("the Foundation"


or PGLAF), owns a compilation copyright in the collection of Project
Gutenberg-tm electronic works. Nearly all the individual works in the
collection are in the public domain in the United States. If an
individual work is in the public domain in the United States and you are
located in the United States, we do not claim a right to prevent you from
copying, distributing, performing, displaying or creating derivative
works based on the work as long as all references to Project Gutenberg
are removed. Of course, we hope that you will support the Project
Gutenberg-tm mission of promoting free access to electronic works by
freely sharing Project Gutenberg-tm works in compliance with the terms of
this agreement for keeping the Project Gutenberg-tm name associated with
the work. You can easily comply with the terms of this agreement by
keeping this work in the same format with its attached full Project
Gutenberg-tm License when you share it without charge with others.

1.D. The copyright laws of the place where you are located also govern
what you can do with this work. Copyright laws in most countries are in
a constant state of change. If you are outside the United States, check
the laws of your country in addition to the terms of this agreement
before downloading, copying, displaying, performing, distributing or
creating derivative works based on this work or any other Project
Gutenberg-tm work. The Foundation makes no representations concerning
the copyright status of any work in any country outside the United
States.

1.E.1. The following sentence, with active links to, or other immediate
access to, the full Project Gutenberg-tm License must appear prominently
whenever any copy of a Project Gutenberg-tm work (any work on which the

copied or distributed:

and distributed to anyone in the United States without paying any fees
or charges. If you are redistributing or providing access to a work
with the phrase "Project Gutenberg" associated with or appearing on the
work, you must comply either with the requirements of paragraphs 1.E.1
through 1.E.7 or obtain permission for the use of the work and the
Project Gutenberg-tm trademark as set forth in paragraphs 1.E.8 or
1.E.9.

1.E.3. If an individual Project Gutenberg-tm electronic work is posted


with the permission of the copyright holder, your use and distribution

to the Project Gutenberg-tm License for all works posted with the
permission of the copyright holder found at the beginning of this work.

License terms from this work, or any files containing a part of this

electronic work, or any part of this electronic work, without

Gutenberg-tm License.

1.E.6. You may convert to and distribute this work in any binary,
compressed, marked up, nonproprietary or proprietary form, including any

distribute copies of a Project Gutenberg-tm work in a format other than
"Plain Vanilla ASCII" or other format used in the official version
posted on the official Project Gutenberg-tm web site (www.gutenberg.net),
you must, at no additional cost, fee or expense to the user, provide a

License as specified in paragraph 1.E.1.

both the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation and Michael

1.F.

1.F.1. Project Gutenberg volunteers and employees expend considerable


effort to identify, do copyright research on, transcribe and proofread
public domain works in creating the Project Gutenberg-tm
collection. Despite these efforts, Project Gutenberg-tm electronic
works, and the medium on which they may be stored, may contain
"Defects," such as, but not limited to, incomplete, inaccurate or
corrupt data, transcription errors, a copyright or other intellectual
property infringement, a defective or damaged disk or other medium, a
computer virus, or computer codes that damage or cannot be read by
your equipment.

Gutenberg-tm trademark, and any other party distributing a Project
Gutenberg-tm electronic work under this agreement, disclaim all
liability to you for damages, costs and expenses, including legal
fees. YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE NO REMEDIES FOR NEGLIGENCE, STRICT
LIABILITY, BREACH OF WARRANTY OR BREACH OF CONTRACT EXCEPT THOSE
PROVIDED IN PARAGRAPH F3. YOU AGREE THAT THE FOUNDATION, THE
TRADEMARK OWNER, AND ANY DISTRIBUTOR UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT BE
LIABLE TO YOU FOR ACTUAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR

written explanation to the person you received the work from. If you
received the work on a physical medium, you must return the medium with
your written explanation. The person or entity that provided you with
the defective work may elect to provide a replacement copy in lieu of a
refund. If you received the work electronically, the person or entity
providing it to you may choose to give you a second opportunity to
receive the work electronically in lieu of a refund. If the second copy
is also defective, you may demand a refund in writing without further
opportunities to fix the problem.

1.F.4. Except for the limited right of replacement or refund set forth
in paragraph 1.F.3, this work is provided to you 'AS-IS', WITH NO OTHER
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO

1.F.5. Some states do not allow disclaimers of certain implied


warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain types of damages.
If any disclaimer or limitation set forth in this agreement violates the
law of the state applicable to this agreement, the agreement shall be
interpreted to make the maximum disclaimer or limitation permitted by
the applicable state law. The invalidity or unenforceability of any
provision of this agreement shall not void the remaining provisions.

trademark owner, any agent or employee of the Foundation, anyone
providing copies of Project Gutenberg-tm electronic works in accordance
with this agreement, and any volunteers associated with the production,

Project Gutenberg-tm work, and (c) any Defect you cause.

Section 2. Information about the Mission of Project Gutenberg-tm

Project Gutenberg-tm is synonymous with the free distribution of


electronic works in formats readable by the widest variety of computers
including obsolete, old, middle-aged and new computers. It exists
because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and donations from
people in all walks of life.

Volunteers and financial support to provide volunteers with the


assistance they need, is critical to reaching Project Gutenberg-tm's
goals and ensuring that the Project Gutenberg-tm collection will
remain freely available for generations to come. In 2001, the Project
Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation was created to provide a secure
and permanent future for Project Gutenberg-tm and future generations.
To learn more about the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation
and how your efforts and donations can help, see Sections 3 and 4
and the Foundation web page at http://www.pglaf.org.

Section 4. Information about Donations to the Project Gutenberg


Literary Archive Foundation

Project Gutenberg-tm depends upon and cannot survive without wide


spread public support and donations to carry out its mission of
increasing the number of public domain and licensed works that can be
freely distributed in machine readable form accessible by the widest

array of equipment including outdated equipment. Many small donations
($1 to $5,000) are particularly important to maintaining tax exempt
status with the IRS.

The Foundation is committed to complying with the laws regulating


charities and charitable donations in all 50 states of the United
States. Compliance requirements are not uniform and it takes a
considerable effort, much paperwork and many fees to meet and keep up
with these requirements. We do not solicit donations in locations
where we have not received written confirmation of compliance. To
SEND DONATIONS or determine the status of compliance for any
particular state visit http://pglaf.org

While we cannot and do not solicit contributions from states where we


have not met the solicitation requirements, we know of no prohibition
against accepting unsolicited donations from donors in such states who
approach us with offers to donate.

International donations are gratefully accepted, but we cannot make


any statements concerning tax treatment of donations received from
outside the United States. U.S. laws alone swamp our small staff.

Please check the Project Gutenberg Web pages for current donation
methods and addresses. Donations are accepted in a number of other
ways including including checks, online payments and credit card
donations. To donate, please visit: http://pglaf.org/donate

Section 5. General Information About Project Gutenberg-tm electronic


works.

Professor Michael S. Hart is the originator of the Project Gutenberg-tm


concept of a library of electronic works that could be freely shared
with anyone. For thirty years, he produced and distributed Project
Gutenberg-tm eBooks with only a loose network of volunteer support.

Project Gutenberg-tm eBooks are often created from several printed


editions, all of which are confirmed as Public Domain in the U.S.
unless a copyright notice is included. Thus, we do not necessarily
keep eBooks in compliance with any particular paper edition.

Most people start at our Web site which has the main PG search facility:

http://www.gutenberg.net

This Web site includes information about Project Gutenberg-tm,


including how to make donations to the Project Gutenberg Literary
Archive Foundation, how to help produce our new eBooks, and how to
subscribe to our email newsletter to hear about new eBooks.
