The music has commenced ... Where are the racers?All assembled together near the white columns.It is a beautiful sight. Forty boys and girls in picturesqueattire darting with electric swiftness in and out amongeach other, or sailing in pairs and triplets, beckoning,chatting, whispering in the fullness of youthful glee. In a little Dutch village covered in snow, Hans Brinker and his sister, Gretel, glide down the canals on hand-carved wooden skates. Metal skates are much too expensive.
