THE BOLDNESS OF TERROR
For peace and aafety pray bewara,
And never take a foolish dare.
CEVEIt In his life had iteddy Fox
felt more uncomfortable than
lie did ns he stole up through the
Old Orchard toward Farmer
Brown's henyard In broad daylight.
Terror the CJoshawk had dared him
to visit the henyard and steal a hen
while Farmer Brown was about.
All the way there Iteddy hoped that
Farmer Brown would not he ubout.
He hoped thnt no one would be

that he hnd kept his tongue still
Before Farmer Brown Could Move
He Wac in the Air Again Carry
ing Away That Fat Hen.
when he had met Terror, and so
have avoided this unpleasant
The truth is, Reddy didn’t dare
visit that henyard when Farmer
Brown or Farmer Brown’s Roy was
about. He knew that he wouldn’t
dare go beyond the old stone wall
on the edge of the Old Orchard If
he should tlnd that anyone w as near
that henyard. So he hoped and
hoped that when he got there the
way would be clear, for he knew
that Terror the Goshawk was sit
ting In the top of a tall tree where ]
he could watch all that went on.
When Reddy reached the old
stone wall on the edge of the Old
Orchard and peeped over, his heart
sank, for Farmer Rrowu himself
was In the henyard feeding the
hens. Reddy stopped right where
he was. Nothing could have In
duced him to go a stt? nenrer.
"Anyway," muttered Reddy to him
self, “Terror won’t dare go any
nearer, and so we'll he even. No
one would dare visit that henyard
and steal a hen right under Farmer
Brown's nose. No one Is hold
enough to do a thing like that."
Reddy looked buck to where Ter
ror the Goshawk was sitting. Sud
denly Terror spread his great wings
and shot out from that tree straight
toward Reddy. Reddy could not but
admire the speed with which he
Hew. Straight over the Old Orchard
lie came, und swooping down Just
above Reddy's head, he cried,
"Coward I” and then shot up into
the air and over Farmer Brown's
hen.yard. There lie made a little
circle and then shot down tike a
thunderbolt, seizing a hen In his
great claws only a few feet from
where Fnriner Brown was stnnd
lng. Before Farmer Brown could
move he was In the air again car
rying away that fat hen. Farmer
Brown yelled. All the hens
screamed and raced for the hen
house. Terror paid no attention
either' to Farmer Brown or the
frightened hens. Once more he flew
low Just over Reddy’s head and
once more cried. “Coward!” then
swiftly disappeared over In the
Green Forest. He had made good
As for Reddy Fox, he sneaked
away toward the Old Pasture. In
his heart he admired the boldness
of Terror the Goshawk, but he
hated him more than ever, and that
hate grew ns he thought of the tine
breakfast Terror was enjoying
while he himself could And nothing
to put In his empty stomach.

I bought a home tn the country
from a real estate agent who told
me It was a two-story house with
modern Improvements. \Wien I went
to see It I discovered it didn't have
any Improvements and there was
no second floor at all. What did
the agent mean when he said It was
a two-story house?
Answer: The agent was right In
telling you It was a two story house.
As you say all the rooms were on
the ground floor, that Is one story,
and there aren’t any Improvements
in the house, that’s the other story.

1 met a woman my own age at a
party last week. 1 took her home
and on the way I told her that
her teeth were like "stars." I have
called her up on the telephone, but
she won’t talk to me. What do you
think Is wrong?
Answer: You probably hit the
nail on the head. You said her teeth
were Just like “stars" and she thinks
you said that because they come
out every nfght.

Only Two Natural Feara
Psychologists maintain there are
only two natural fears, namely, the
fear of falling, if unsupported, and
the fear of a loud unexpected noise.
However, fear of the dentist Is well
nigh universal and according to

Psychologist, It comes chiefly from
parents telling children of their
