The homestead was built on a gentle rise that sloped gradually away on every side; in front to the wide plain dotted with huge gum trees and great grey box groves and at the back after you had passed through the well-kept vegetable garden and orchard to a long lagoon bordered with trees and fringed with tall bulrushes and waving reeds.
A yell from Wally intimated that he had something on his hook, and with immense pride he flourished in the air a diminutive blackfish--so small that the Hermit proposed to use it for bait, a suggestion promptly declined by the captor, who hid his catch securely in the fork of two branches, before re-baiting his hook.
