A New Kind of Pig.
"Stop grunting and squealing and
follow mel" Old Dog Spot growied.
And Grunty Pig, who had just
tumbled through a hole in the fence,
scrambled to his feet and trotted
after his guide.
Old Spot had promised to show
'These pitfg," h said, "won't vr
. hava tails."
Grunty a dozen pink and white pigs,
all without tails. He wanted Grunty
to see how handsome they looked.
"You'll like them," Spot told
, Grunty over his shoulder a. they
jogged across the farmyard. "You'll
ask Farmer Green this very day to
cut off your tail and nail it up on
the barn. I tell you, these pigs
look neat. There's style about
"Umphl Umph!" said Grunty Pig
as he shuffled along behind.
"Now, I wonder what he means
by that 1" Spot mused. It was some
times hard to tell whether Grunty's
umphs stood for yes or no.
Around the corner of the farm
house, near the woodshed door, old
dog Spot came to a halt before a
Stopping beside Spot, Grunty Pig
peered inside the cage. He saw a
number of odd little creatures run
ning about inside the sawdust strewn
floor of the tiny house, one or an
other of the'in giving a faint .squeak
now and then as if ordering the two
unasked callers to move on.
WhoeVer they were, they were a
bright-eyed little family. But Grunty
Pig thought, as he stared at them,
that they had a most peculiar look.
There seemed to be something miss
ing about them. Yet he couldn't
1 tell just what it was.
Together Grunty and Spot stood
there, silent, for a time; until it last
Grunty said, "Come along 1 Let's not
stay here any longer. I want to see
those 12 pigs without tails."
Old dog Spot snorted.
"You want to see them!" he cried.
"Well, nobody's stopping you.
They're right here in front of you!"
Grunty Pig's mouth fell open he
was astonished, v He knew, i now,
What mai1 (h Lett 1 A a-telfv nUiin

strangers look so queer. There
wasn't one of them that had even a
hint of a tail! !
Then all at once Grunty turned
angrily upon old dog Spot.
"These aren't pigs," he squealed
"You needn't think you can fool me.
1 hey re not pigs at all.
"Oh, yes they are!" Spot -tiststed.
"You didn't suppose that all the pigs
in the world were exactly like your
family did you?"
Grunty didn't know what to say.
He looked at the odd little creatures
again. And then at Spot once more,
s "If these really are pigs," he fal
tered, "they must be very, very
young. They're certainly smaller
than any day-old pigs I ever saw.
Maybe their tails haven't sprouted
.yet." i g
Old dog Spot seemed to choke
over something. He turned lU head
away for a moment or two before he
"These pigs," he said, "won't ever
have tails. Not one. of them would
"know what to do with a tail if you
gave liim one. They don't want
tails. They have no use for them.
And now that you see for yourself
how happy they arc without tails,
you ought not to delay any longer
about having yours cut off. I hope,"
Spot added," "I'll see your tail nailed
up on the barn tomorrow, where
everybody can see it."
Then Grunty Pig said something
that surprised him.
"Why don't you have your own
tail cut off?" he asked Spot.
And before old Spot could think of
an answer, Johnnie Green came run
ning Out of the woodshed.
"Get away from my guinea pigs!"
Grunty and Spot both turned and
ran in opposite directions. Grunty
didn't see Spot again for more than
a week. When they did at last meet,
old Spot never mentioned tails at all.
To te! Ve truth, he seemed to feel
somewhat ashamed of himself for
having tried to play a trick on

THE SAD TALE OF MICKEY THE MORON
When Mickey the Moron to Sing Sing was sent.
For seven consecutive terms.
The doctors averred that this criminal bird
Was a victim of larceny germs.
So they mugged him one day with, X-ray machine,
And when, undeniably plain,
The picture revealed where the germs were concealed,
, They took out a hunk of his brain.
The patient was cured of the habit of theft;
In a bank they could turn him adrift
Among screen-wire tills full of nice yellow bills
And never a one would he lift.
And yet a fresh criminal fancy he took
Which set the poor doctors aghast;
At night he'd go down to a dark part of town
And kill every person that passed.
This bothered the medical men quite a bit;
It bothered the sheriff still more, '
Though the man was bereft of the habit of theft
He did far more harm than before. '
So again was removed a small patch of his roof
To save, the poor chap from the halter.
And now he does time for a new kind ef crime
He's become a proficient defaulter.
The puzzle, we're happy to say has been solved;
The instruments used upon Mick
Had been used to take bugs from a number of thu
With criminal maladies sick.
And jn taking one sort of a microbe away
From the victim's felonious mind,
One crime to efface, why they left in its place
A germ of a different kind! V
'COOD ARGUMENT ANYWAY
Maybe when the delegates to the disarmament conference see how
many of use there are and how we conduct a subway jam, they will just
naturally want to disarm.
Beer still conies in schooners, but not beyond the three-mile limit.
THE REAL BELLIGERENTS
Maybe it will be possible to get the New York hold-up men to go
down to the disarmament conference.

The Way Dicky Greeted Grace
Draper and Masked His Chagrin.
Hush, Dicky! She'll hear you." '
Dicky abruptly stopped his ag
grieved mumbling over Grace
Draper's changed appearance, lifted
his hat and waved a greeting to her
as she caught sight of us. I also
waved to the girl whose hand I
never had thought to take in even
common courtesy again, and we
hurried swiftly to her side.
She had her suitcase in one hand,
fvr bag in the other, and Dicky took
them from her in as casual fashion
as if she had been a frequent week
I reflected that I did not know
the circumstances of their last meet
ing and parting, and I wondered if
there was in Dicky's mind a re
membrance of that time. No need
to ask if Grace Draper remembered.
She could control her face and her
voice, but there was an expression
in her eyes as she glanced quickly
at Dicky and then as quickly away
again, that told me she had forgot
ten no slightest incident of their ac
quaintance. "Hello. Grace 1" Was it my fancy,
or did Dicky carefully avoid anything
but the most casual of glances.
"How was the trip warm?"
"No, thank you, very pleasant,"
she responded in as carefully indif
ferent a tone, taking my outstretched
hand in a firm grasp.
An Odd Experience.
"Thank you for letting me come.
Madge," she said simply, and if I
ever heard gratitude and sorrowful
remorse for the past in any human
being's voice I heard it in hers. If
I had wished I could not have helped
giving her an, answer in keeping
with her greeting.
"I am glad to have you." I re
turned. "Come this way. The car
is right over here."
I drove rapidly to the inn of
which Dicky had spoken, with her
by my side and Dicky with the lug
gage in the tonneau. Ii Was one
of the oddest experiences of my
Iifa, and I found myselt speculating
upon the mental processes of the
girl. There was not the slightest
remnant of the sparkling coquetry
which had made her so alluring in
the old days. She was simply dignity
itself to Dicky, charmingly 'friendly
to me, with j'ist the correct touch
of humility. Was she truly repent
ant, or was she playing a difficult
part extremely well?
"Oh, what a wonderfully pretty
I think the exclamation burst sim
ultaneously from both Grace Draper
and myself, as I turned a sharp cor
ner under Dicky's directions and
drew up in front of a rustic archway
twined with climbing rose bushes
covered with buds.
"I thought it would hit you be
tween the eyes, Madge, Dicky said
complacently, and for a long minute
we feasted our eyes upon the low,
rambling inn, set in a grove of won
derful old trees.
"How one can rest herel" Grace
"That's right," Dicky said eagerly.
"You must get a good long rest and
pick up a bit before you begin work
He was plainly embarrassed, and I
think Grace Draper's sharpened wits
caught the troth then from his
"I suppose I'm too thin, and and
changed," she said with a gallant
attempt at a smile.
"Rot!" Dicky rejoined sharply. I
thought too promptly. It was as if
he had anticipated her question. "You
look tired, of course, but that will
only be a matter of a few days. And
I can't possibly begin work for over
a week yet. . Then , we'll talk things

voice, l knew she must have real

not only her exquisite beauty but her
power over Dicky was gone, and the
knowledge must have been misery it
self to her. Her voice haunted me
as we drove away, and I knew it
troubled Dicky also, although his
reaction to it took the form of irrita
"Why. she's positively haggard!"
he exploded, as we drove away. "She
won't do at all. " Of course, she still
is lissome, and she'd be graceful even
cranking a flivver, and I think rest
and good food will bring back her
lines in a week or two. But herfacel
It's as hard as nails, all the youth

I made no reply, knowing from
long experience that Dicky wished
none when He was fighting something
out with himself.
"I've got it!" he exclaimed, after
a minute s silence. Didn t 1 tell

Being a Guest.
Women who will visit at homes
where there is no maid to do the
work, or a part of it, should insist
upon doing a gocd share of the
work. 1 -
Most hostesses will object, but it
will be found that the helpful guest
is given a more genuine welcome
than the one who has to be waited
upon all the time.
Your friends who come to. visit
you want to sr.e you, and those
whom you visit want to see you lor
a visit, but as a guest you must rea
lize that your presence makes a
change in the daily schedule or rou
tine, not only because you are there
and are bound to make extra work,
but even the regular work in hot
weather is exhausting.
Even the best friend you have
eventually will resent it when you
come down late in the morning
dressed in cool garb and sit on the
porch or elswhere in the coolest
places while she toils over the kitcn
en stove preparing meals.
Usually this is one ol the best
tests of strong friendship.
But don t try it instead, work
right along with your hostess and
help her get done in half the time.
and vou can visit as you work, and
you are doubly welcome. Be respon
sible for your own room, put in
order early, and keep your own
things in your room, not scattered
all over the house and you will give
pleasure as a guest.

Love and the Peach Tree.
Among the various survivals of
tree-worship existing in this coun

Mrs. Bergen in a memoir of the
American Folk Lore society, which
superstition is as follows: Go out at
midnight and walk around a peach
"Low for a foreigner,
Bark for a near one,
Crow for a farmer
Screek, tree, screek, if I'm to die
This is to be tried by a young
lady who desires information as to
whom she is likely to marry, or to
know whether she is to die unmar
ried. If, after she has invoked the
tree, she hears a cow low, a cock
crow or a dog bark, or instead, the
tree "screeks," she has her answer.
Mrs. Bergen gives the invocation
merely, but adds in a note that pre
sumably the tree is to be circled
"sunwise" that is. in the direction
of the hands of a watch.
This presumption is hardly war
ranted, as direct tree worship sel
dom, if ever, involves the ritual of
sun worship. The peach tree su
perstition is analogous to several
Other forms of tree worship surviv
ing in Europe. For instance, before
dawn on Good Friday the Bavarian
peasant goes out to his orchard and

oh, green tree! that God may make

to one for it, and at night thev run
about among the trees crying, "Bud,

Does a Cow Give Milk?
The primary answer to this ques
tion is, of course, "to nourish her
young" the milk being intended for
the sustenance of the calves before
they are able to partake of more solid
food. But, in tracing the milk
through the body of the cow, we
find that its production is due to the
existence of what are called "glands"
certain parts of the body which
produce substances which the body
needs in order to function properly.
Some of the glands in the human
body are used in the production of
saliva, others in the making of the
gastric juice which enable us to di
gest our food and still others in fil
tering from the blood certain things
which It cannot use to advantage.
In the case of the cow, parts of the
blood produced from the grass which
the animal eats are transformed by
means of a certain set of these
glands into the white liquid we call
"milk" and this then flows into the
udder, where it may be extracted
either by the calf or by human
agencies, its high nutritive property
being due to the large percentage
of butter fat which it contains. Milk,
therefore, has passed through at
least two stages before becoming the
liquid as we know it: First, the
grass or fodder which the cow eats
and secondly the blood of the cow it
self, from which the udder glands
extract the easily digestible portions
and transform them into milk for the
calves or for human babies.
