"You have lost something, Fraulein?"
Midge came to the rescue, thinking that the less heard from Susan the better. "Well," she said very rapidly, hoping that the schoolmaster wouldn't quite follow what she was saying, "to be honest, we haven't exactly lost anything but we haven't any TICKETS."
"Tickets!" exclaimed the man. "Ah! You have lost your tickets---!"
"Well you said it, not me," said Midge under her breath.
The little man snapped his fingers. "Come boys! Hansli, Anton, search! Search! Search till you find!"
"That'll test them," muttered Midge.
