6
 Giles Bateson and his fellow
students hard at their studies.

7
 The morning after the night 
before.

8
 "Hello Dad! As a testimonial
and a recompense for my exem-
plary conduct the Chancellor
has accorded me a vacation."

9
 "Music hath charms to soothe
the savage breast."

10
One hour later.

11
 "Be it ever so humble there's
no place like home."

12
 Squire Annesley about to go
on a journey quarrels with his
gardener on the discovery of
the theft of his roses.

13
 Giles informs his God-father
Squire Annesley of his unfor-
tunate predicament.

14
 "You want my help sonny?
Well take care of my rose 
garden during my absence."

15
The little rose thief.

16
 "I thought that flowers were
God's gift to us, made for rich
and poor alike."

17
 "I'm not a thief. Come on,
I'll show you why I took the
roses."

18
 "Keep it! I know you gardeners
don't earn much money."

19
Next day is washday.

20
 "Father, this is Squire Annes-
ley's new gardener."

21
 "I'll give you a taste of my 
own brew."

22
 "See ... that nice taste is
dandelion."

23
Their first tryst.

24
 "This Wishing Ring forged
of silver has the magic power
of granting any wish of the
wearer."

25
 "I wish to be kissed by my 
true love."

26
 "Oh! If only I could have a
new dress and shoes."

27
 The good folks of the village
in response to his invitation
gather to greet Annesley and
enjoy the Lawn Party.

28
 In the goodness of her heart
Sally starts for the Earl's, full
of hope, determined to do her
duty and reconcile father and
son.

29
"Do you play chess?"

30
 "How the deuce can I earn 
the half crown?"

31
 Sally has visited the Earl
every day for a week.

32
 Grieved by the Earl's suffer-
ings and wishing to relieve him,
Sally applies to the gypsies for
a remedy to cure his gout.

33
 "... Go at midnight by the light
of the moon to the Devil's Cliff,
on the face thereof grows a 
magic herb by which all ills are 
cured ...."

34
Early next morning.

35
 "Your little friend met with 
a terrible accident, fell off the
Devil's Cliff!"

36
 "My horse is lame get me
another at once."

37
 "Here take this half crown 
for the use of the horse."

38
 "Say! Did you know the par-
son's daughter was hurt falling 
off the cliff?"

39
 "You are bound to pardon 
him for you see he has fulfilled
your conditions."
