""l"' fx 8 THE MANZANITA Jackson, i'Hello, Mary!" and Aza- lia in her jealous rage, saw Sadie smile and nod back at him. A tear started from Azalia's bright eye, but just then he turned and looked straight at her. "Hello, dearyl" his cheery voice cried, and then to astonished yet delighted Azalia he threw a Foolishly blushing, she stood in confusion, staring after his tiny form. "Why, Zaly, that clown frowed a kiss to you," cried Janet in a shocked tone. "Who is he, Zaly?" Azalia walked home slowly- thinking-wondering. She could not forget the clown's small face. How handsome and young he Was! And he had thrown a kiss-to her! At the dinner table she was so un- usually quiet that her father in- quired, "What's the matter with Puss today? Didnlt you like the parade? Don't you want to go this afternoon tl l guess you do not like circuses much, eh?" "Chl yes, she does," spoke up Janet," hut, Father, today, the pret- ty little clown boy frowed a kiss to her! My! l should think she'd he happy 'stead of mad-l would, if 'twas me!" And how Mr. Domincus did laugh. Ile laughed till the tears rolled down his face and still he laughed! "Threw a kiss to you, did he? Well Puss, l wouldn't worry about that. He does that to all the pretty girls.', As an answer Azalia made a face, stuck out her tongue, and flung herself out of the room. ln her own room she looked in the mirror. The face she saw was really pretty. Her long black hair was topped by a big pink bow, the very tint of her round cheeks.

And he never threw a kiss to her-and all the neighbors thing shc's pretty." The afternoon was one of excite- ment to every villager. The big white tent, spread on a green com- mon at the edge of town, was crowded to its utmost capacity. Mr. and Mrs. Domincus were there with all the family. Azalia could hardly wait till the performance began. Finally the band on the platform began to play "The Star Spangled Banner" and the whole audience rose. Twelve jet black horses came prancing out, bearing twelve girls. 'lhey tripped daintly to the rings, where they divided, six going into each ring. The skill of the beauti- fully dressed girls in their daring acts was a source of envy and ad- miration to Azalia. She watched their every move, her brown eyes flashing. Between each act the Baby Clown would come out, mak- ing fun for every one. Many peo- ple afterward declared they had never laughed so before in all their lives. Azalia tried to attract his at- tention by waving her hand or throwing peanuts at him and twice or three times she succeeded in get- ting a grin and a wink from him. The performance over, Azalia left the tent with reluctance. She linger- ed in the menageries as long as she could and walked oh! so slowly down the street toward home. Sud- denly, as she walked along, a bril- liant idea came to her, so brilliant in fact that it made her brown eyes shine like stars. At the same time
