-- "Blessed Jesus, at Thy Word We are gathered all to hear Thee; Let our hearts and souls be stirred Now to seek and love and fear Thee." he thought he had fallen asleep m church, but when he looked around to see it Far was frowning at him and saw--of all things-hay, he knew better. But that singing! What- where-who? How could he be sitting in a hay loft and hearing at the same time so many voices singing "Blessed Jesus"? "Mikkel, wake up. It's the middle of the morning." Mikkel stared. Per! Where did he come from? Hadn't he left him in- Milwaukee? Milwaukee? Why, to be sure, he was in America-in a hay loft -in America-in a hay loft. Whose hay loft? "Mikkel, wake up !" laughed Per. "You look as stupid as the farmer's oxen that brought me from Milwaukee." "Where are we?" asked Mikkel. "In Heg's barn. Almost all the ship folk came here. They're all down below. Mikkel, you are shaking your head like a dog with a fly in his ear."
