PILLOW FIGHT-Two children waking earlier than their companions proceed to wake them very unceremoniously by throwing pillows at the heads of the sleeping ones. Thus roused, the victims commence a vigorous defense. In the fight, one little one tumbles out of bed, but regaining her feet dances in delight at the sight of the others, when suddenly a pillow bursts and everything is merged in feathers.

"A Pillow Fight". This is splendidly realistic. You watch the youngsters as they rise from their beds and advance to the attack; you enter into the excitement as the contest proceeds; and when the pillow cases burst and the combatants are almost hidden in a shower of feathers you vote the fun both fast and furious, and are compelled to join in the general roar at merriment.
