Aty Scotch Terrier have a cute, little Scotch terrier, who is only nine months old, and he certainly is mischievous. We tried to teach him to sit up, but his little back is not strong enough yet. One Sunday when I was alone, I managed to teach him to give me his paw. He is very awkward at times and gives it to me stiffly way out to one side and nearly falls over. One rainy day, which was the first one he had encountered, we put him outside. We stood watching the funny expression on his face as if to say, " Now what! " For a moment he sat puzzled over the matter. Then he started to bark but soon found he couldn ' t stop it that way. He sat looking like the " last rose of summer " for a while when an idea popped into his head, and it was a very funny one. There he was snapping at the drops one by one, pretending to be very fierce. Alas! All was in vain. He just could not make it stop raining. Flustered and wet he came in shaking himself vigorously. Then he ran in by the fire to see if he could solve this deep mystery. Rosemary Raybourne. Frifjlit Jt was just about midnight when I was suddenly awakened from a sound sleep. A dreadful, howling noise reached my ears which sent cold shiv- ers up and down my back. The howling noise came closer and closer to me, and something bounded upon my bed! I never was so frightened in my life. I dived under the covers, pulling them far over my head. Some- thing was clawing at the bed covers trying to pull them away. I decided to see what was there, so very cautiously I peeped from under the covers. To my horror a bundle of fur jumped into my arms! Then I heard a timid meowing, and something licked my face. There was Fluffy, my kitten, who had given me such a fright. Alice Kee loner. All ' s Well Tlmf timls Well Qne day I was walking through a narrow path in the woods when all of a sudden there in front of me lay a huge rattlesnake. My blood ran cold, and I could not move. After one terrible minute, I gathered enough courage to try to pick up a rock. Just when my fingers touched the rock, the snake coiled and was about to strike when there behind the snake was a flash of brown and white. The snake was dead in my dog ' s mouth. I gave a sigh of relie f and started home with my best pal, the dog, beside me. Yukio Hibino.

In a few days when things had quieted down and the Earl of Tun- bridge and the Earl of Salisbury had divided up the estate of the Earl of Southmore, John Moreland was called into the bedchamber of his master, who was having livery, and was told that in three days he would be made a knight as a reward for his bravery and quick wit on the night of the battle. Arthur Mcintosh. Kelly Koy I ' s Bravery N expensive car slid up to the side entrance of a dilapidated farm- house. It was midnight, and the moon half hidden by clouds. Two men jumped out of the car and placed their unconscious burden just in- side the door. Exchanging a whispered word with the opener of the door, they were back, and the car glided off as silently as it had come. Judy Boyd, attractive sixteen-year-old heiress, awoke in a strange hayloft. Her eyes fluttered slowly open, and a dull throb kept beating in her heavy head. When her dazed thoughts had ceased whirling and eddying in her brain, she remembered leaving Sue ' s house, the car sliding up behind her, her useless attempts to scream, and then darkness. Trying to move, she found herself tightly bound and gagged. She felt stiff, cramped, cold, and hungry. Surly voices beyond the wall heightened her fear. In another room of the same farmhouse, a girl just Judy ' s age was sweeping. Up since long before dawn, her position in life was housemaid to the kidnapping chain which used this out-of-the-way farm for a hid- ing place. Beaten and underfed, she looked scarcely more than half her age, much less the beauty she might have been. Her heart went out to Judy, and she determined to help her. " If only my parents had been able to pay the enormous ransom asked, I might now be back there instead of — " and hot tears filled her eyes. " Oh well, what is, is. It can ' t be undone, but I ' ll help her escape. I don ' t know how, but I will! " She swept more earnestly than usual and made an astonishing dis- covery. A thin slit revealed a trapdoor which opened to the light! Hear- ing footsteps approaching, she hastily went on with her sweeping. That night they had forgotten to lock her door. She crept softly into the loft, woke Judy, and cut her ropes. " The floor never creaked so much before! Oh, I know they ' ll hear us! " One last unearthly squeak, and they were free! How to drive a car had been a part of Judy ' s education. The gang used the old barn for a garage. Through an oversight, the ignition key had been left in one of the cars. They sped down the road, each moment sure they were being followed. Reaching the Boyd home, they aroused a police squad, and the links of another great chain were broken forever. The whole country rocked with the news, and the thrilling tale was on every tongue. The brave young rescurer was adopted by the Boyd family and christened Betty. She became a favorite and friend of all. Judy often remarks, " And I had to be kidnapped to get a sister! " Barbara Watkins.

That Future Shadow Oh, wouldn ' t life be joyous, And wouldn ' t life be gay If I could go to movie shows And bridge teas every day} Ne ' er have to wash and iron, Ne ' er have to bake and stew, Nor any of the tiresome things That housewives have to do. Oh, that would be an ideal life Quite heavenly, and yet — Perhaps it wouldn ' t after all — Just think how fat I ' d get. Marilyn Mitchell. A Story of Snakes man, his name is no affair of ours, lived near the Grand Canyon. Now you know that this country is full of snakes. The hero of this story extracted snake-oil from rattlesnakes, to pay for his meager expenses. In the winter snakes hibernate, and it was at this time that our hero dug them up, laid them out in the snow, and froze them. Then he slit them and extracted the oil. On a cold winter ' s night he banked his fire and left for a nearby town for a good time. During his absence a man floundered through the snow, very much inebriated. Seeing a cabin and finding it unlocked, he entered, and, the fire being low, he laid several, long, slender sticks of wood on it. Taking off his shoes and with one more good pull on his bottle, he settled into a chair. A slick, slimy feeling awakened him. Now partly sober, he stared. Yes, it was the truth, snakes! Look what whiskey had done for him! Leaving the door open in his haste, he fled from this accursed place. Our hero returned. He saw the door open and a much upset room. Several snakes lay slumbering on the floor. It was a much surprised man who straightened his cabin that night, and to this day he swears that the snakes became lonely and held a party of their own. Ross Snyder. " Bounding " Beau I have a dog whose ttame is Beau, Into whose mouth the food doth flow. He gobbles down his meal like mad, But still he isn ' t very bad. He ' ll walk for you on his hind legs. He ' s cute ivhen he sits up and begs. He ' ll " tunnel " ' twixt your lower limbs; In fact he has amazing whims. He ' ll get right up when you say, " Walk! " When his tail wags, it almost talks. Although he irritates at times, His pranks can hardly be called crimes. Stewart Mulford.
