The Call to Duty

Glinda, the good Sorceress of Oz, sat in the grand court of her
palace, surrounded by her maids of honor--a hundred of the most
beautiful girls of the Fairyland of Oz. The palace court was built of
rare marbles, exquisitely polished. Fountains tinkled musically here
and there; the vast colonnade, open to the south, allowed the maidens,
as they raised their heads from their embroideries, to gaze upon a
vista of rose-hued fields and groves of trees bearing fruits or laden
with sweet-scented flowers. At times one of the girls would start a
song, the others joining in the chorus, or one would rise and dance,
gracefully swaying to the music of a harp played by a companion. And
then Glinda smiled, glad to see her maids mixing play with work.

Presently among the fields an object was seen moving, threading the
broad path that led to the castle gate. Some of the girls looked upon
this object enviously; the Sorceress merely gave it a glance and
nodded her stately head as if pleased, for it meant the coming of her
friend and mistress--the only one in all the land that Glinda bowed

Then up the path trotted a wooden animal attached to a red wagon, and
as the quaint steed halted at the gate there descended from the wagon
two young girls, Ozma, Ruler of Oz, and her companion, Princess
Dorothy. Both were dressed in simple white muslin gowns, and as they
ran up the marble steps of the palace they laughed and chatted as
gaily as if they were not the most important persons in the world's
loveliest fairyland.

The maids of honor had risen and stood with bowed heads to greet the
royal Ozma, while Glinda came forward with outstretched arms to greet
her guests.

"We've just come on a visit, you know," said Ozma. "Both Dorothy and I
were wondering how we should pass the day when we happened to think
we'd not been to your Quadling Country for weeks, so we took the
Sawhorse and rode straight here."

"And we came so fast," added Dorothy, "that our hair is blown all
fuzzy, for the Sawhorse makes a wind of his own. Usually it's a day's
journey from the Em'rald City, but I don't s'pose we were two hours on
the way."
