The little girl stood still to watch until the train had disappeared around a curve; then she turned to see where she was.The shed at Hugson's Siding was bare save for an old wooden bench, and did not look very inviting. As she peered through the soft gray light not a house of any sort was visible near the station, nor was any person in sight; but after a while the child discovered a horse and buggy standing near a group of trees a short distance away. She walked toward it and found the horse tied to a tree and standing motionless, with its head hanging down almost to the ground. It was a big horse, tall and bony, with long legs and large knees and feet. She could count his ribs easily where they showed through the skin of his body, and his head was long and seemed altogether too big for him, as if it did not fit. His tail was short and scraggly, and his harness had been broken in many places and fastened together again with cords and bits of wire. The buggy seemed almost new, for it had a shiny top and side curtains. Getting around in front, so that she could look inside, the girl saw a boy curled up on the seat, fast asleep.She set down the bird-cage and poked the boy with her parasol. Presently he woke up, rose to a sitting position and rubbed his eyes briskly.Hello! he said, seeing her, are you Dorothy Gale?Yes, she answered, looking gravely at his tousled hair and blinking gray eyes. Have you come to take me to Hugson's Ranch?Of course, he answered. Train in?I couldn't be here if it wasn't, she said.He laughed at that, and his laugh was merry and frank. Jumping out of the buggy he put Dorothy's suit-case under the seat and her bird-cage on the floor in front.Canary-birds? he asked.Oh, no; it's just Eureka, my kitten. I thought that was the best way to carry her.The boy nodded.Eureka's a funny name for a cat, he remarked.
