The Shy Girl (April 24)

Becky, a gold miner's daughter, dearly loved Clem, but was too shy to tell him. 

One day she learned that Clem was about to marry someone else, so she got her courage up and decided to find Clem, stop the wedding if necessary, and tell him how she felt. She had saddled her horse and was about to leave, when her father appeared and wanted to know why she was in such a hurry. 

"Oh, father," cried Becky, "I hope I can find my darling Clem in time!"
