HE WHITE KNIGHT
RUTH KIMBALL GARDINER.
A great many years ago, in the time which is known as the Days of Chivalry, there lived a King in Far Away Land who was called William the Good. There is nothing about him in any of the histories, for the grown-up people have forgotten him, and only the children speak of him when they play a game and sing a song which begins:
King William was King James' son,
And from a royal race he sprung;
Upon his breast he wore a star
Which points away to the ocean far.
