I hope I will not have to go any fnrther south than this, but If some morning you wake It Was Wanderer the Horned Lark. up anil IIihI the snow so deep that nil the weeds are burled, don't ex pect to find me." "That’s what I'd call good, sound common sense." said another voice, mul a bird very near Snowflake’s size, and who at first glance seemed to be dressed almost wholly In soft chocolate brown, alighted on the snow and began to run around In search of seeds. It was Wanderer, the Horned Lark. I’eter had known him ever since his tlrst winter, yet did not feel really acquainted, for Wanderer seldom stayed long enough for a real acquaintance. Now, as Wanderer reached up to pick seeds from n weed top, Peter had a good look at him. The first thing he noticed was >vhat looked like two little horns above and be hind the eyes. It Is from these that Wanderer gels the name of Horned Lark. Of course, they are not really horns nt all. hut little tufts of black feathers. Ills forehead, a line over each eye, and his throat were yellow. There was a black mark from each corner of his bill curving downward and nlmost Join ing a black crescent shaped band across the breast. Beneath this he was solid white with dusty spots showing here and there. Ills hack was brown In places, having almost a pinkish tinge. His tall was black, showing a little white along the edges when he flew. Altogether he was a handsome little fellow. "Do all your family have those funny little horns?" asked Peter. "No," replied Wanderer promptly. "Mrs. I.ark does not have them." "I think they are very becoming," said Peter politely. “Thank you,'' replied Wanderer, “I nm Inclined to agree with you." Just then Peter discovered some thing that he hadn’t noticed before. “My goodness." he exclaimed, “what a long claw you have on each hind toe!" It was true. Each hind claw was about twice as long as any other claw. Peter couldn’t see any spe cial use for these, and was just about to ask more about them when Wanderer suddenly spied a flock of his relatives some distance nway and flew over to Join them. Prob ably this saved him some embar rassment. for It wns doubtful If he ldmself knew why Old Mother Na ture had given him those long hind claws. ©, T. W. Burumw.—WNII Servlea. The House Awakes!

The rumor Is that the husband bea's his wife up every morning. Do you believe this? Yours truly. L WONDER. Answer: I know the people you refer to and It is a fact that the husband beats his wife up every morning. He gets up at 0:00 a. w. and she doesn’t get up till 7:00. Dear Mr. Wynn: I am a scientist. At present I am experimenting with “flies.” I am trying to solve the big problem of the century; that is: “Should Flies Marry?” This Is my sixth year on the sub ject, and my greatest difficulty is to keep the flies over the winter months. Last winter I put a fly in a cuckoo clock to rest, but it woke the fly up every hour and the poor thing died from the lack of sleep. Can you tell me the best place to keep a fly so it can rest peacefully? Yours truly. WILL U. HEI.PMEE. Answer: Nothing In the world, excepting the discovery of the North pole, will be of greater bene fit to humanity than the solution of the problem, “Should Elies Marry?” I lind that the Importance of flies is a subject to think about. Some folks like tiles, others don't. I know one man who owns a candy store and he likes tiles so much that he has Just engaged a blacksmith for his store. This blacksmith is sup posed to “shoo the files." On the other hand, I hear, every day, of a man named Rahe Ruth who doesn’t like dies.

It looks like a two piece, but is in reality a one-piece dress. Swans Mate for Life and Share Responsibilities Swans are perfect models of con jugal conduct. They mate for life and the sexes share the domestic responsibilities, notes a writer in the New York Herald Tribune. The downy young when first hatched are not the “ugly duck lings” of popular belief, but lovely little creatures, clothed In silky, golden down and without the exag gerated neck and huge paddle-llke feet of their parents. Very soon, however, these characteristics be gin to appear and ungainllness re places their natal loveliness until the grace and beauty of maturity appear. Geese, like swans, pair for life, and the young birds remain In the company of their parents for near ly a year after they are hatched. Endowed with keen Intelligence and extreme wariness, they can be depended on to maintain a fair degree of abundance as long ns ade quate wintering grounds are afford ed them. But, above all, they, like swans, require freedom from mo lestation when they are at rest, so that a large measure of solitude and wide spaces are the chief requirements for their perpetua tion. Ducks, for the most part, are very different from swans and geese In their family habits. While they pair like other birds, and are not as a rule polygamous, the male In most species Is not a constant husband and abandons the female and all family cares as soon as in cubation of the eggs Is well under way. Stiff-tailed ducks, however, are notable exceptions to this rule.
