NINE LIVES

Feasts and famines in the nine lives of the ""celebrated cat of Beacon Hill"", pleasant enough, but far too waggish for children who may well miss the rapturous pokes at Boston's Indies and their households. Mrs. Grenville, who lived on the sunny side of Louishburg Square, was determined to have no more ill-fated pets, but she could not resist the humble appeal of a persecuted raggedy cat whom she rescued from certain death. Dubbed ""Monmouth"", out cat became a favored member of the household, and all would have been fish and , were it not for the evil designs of the hateful butler, Mr. O'Boyle. But Mousmouth and young Smidging foil O'Boyle in his cat-napping attempts.
