  THE   PASSING OF TH4E
           SHEEP.
  At a very early hour one morr
ing, in Florence, I lay half asleel
when  the  bleating of a shee
brought me quickly to my sensel
and I remembered  to have hear
that at this season the shepherd
come  down  from' the mountain
with their flocks, to take them t
the warmer  plains below. So
hastily aroused the sleeping chi
hren, who only needed the wor
'lambs   to make  them  broa
awake, and we  flew to the wix
dows, and lo! what  a sight wa
there.
  The whole street and sidewal
below, as far as we could see i
either direction, was filled with
moving mass. Hundreds and thoi
sands of sheep and lambs; flock
following each other in quick su(
cession, with only room enoug
between  for the shepherd, wh
always leads the sheep with a bi
crook, and generally carries one a
more tiny lambkins in his arms.
  There was no trouble with rt
fractory sheep racing off in th
wrong direction; all were conter
and happy to follow their belove
shepherds, at whose sides trotte
the faithful dogs and the big lea(
ers of the flocks that wore the bell
It was the tinkling of these hur
dreds of bells that had aroused m
so early. Never shall I forget th
strange, weird sound as it rose an
fell on the early morning air.
  These numerous flocks of shee
pass through the city twice a yee
-in  the spring, when they leav
the warm lowlands around Perugi
for the northern mountains, and 1
autumn, when the frosty air dlriv,
them back to the plains. And, t
they must pass through the citi(
on their way, they are obliged 1
linger outside the city walls unt
all business in the streets is su
pended, when  the  night guar(
open the ponderous gates and a
low them to pass through.
  It was an impressive sight to s4
those hundreds of sheep followir
their leaders so happily, and spol
volumes for the friendly relatioi
existing  between  them. - Wi
Awake,
