Our Kitten Min, Two-thirds Grown,...

Our kitten Min, two-thirds grown, was playing with Sophia's broom this morning, as she was sweeping the parlor, when she suddenly went into a fit, dashed round the room, and, the door being opened, rushed up two flights of stairs and leaped from the attic window to the ice and snow by the side of the doorstep--a descent of a little more than twenty feet--passed round the house and was lost. But she made her appearance again about noon, at the window, quite well and sound in every point, even playful and frisky.
