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
"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

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. Her brown eyes
flashed out from under heavy black
lashes and her mouth was curved
t'So he does it to all the pretty
girls, does he?" she said spitefully
to the girl in the mirror. t'Huh!
didn't I see him speak to Sadie
Jackson? 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”
