"Hello, boys and girls. Do you remember the little engine called Casey Junior? He is usually busy pulling the circus train, and here on our cover this week he is taking the train west, into Indian country! Little Hiawatha is very excited at the idea of seeing a circus, and he is trying to race Casey Junior to the railroad station. Some of his animal friends are joining in the fun, too. Here is a riddle for you. Do you know what two letters spell an Indian tent? the answer is T.P. (tepee). And what about this? What four letters frighten a burglar? The answer? O.I.C.U. Hidden in the picture are a top hat, a flag, wooden bucket, clown's hat, ball and a hoop. Can you find them? See you again next week. Your friend, Mickey Mouse."
