and startled that for a second or

Now It seemed an absolutely
crazy thing for Danny to run
straight at Buster, but the truth Is

have done. It wasn't wisdom that
made him do It No. Indeed, It
wasn’t wisdom at all. It was Just
pure fright and nothing else. Danny
was so frightened that he didn’t
have any Idea at all where he was
running. He just ran, that was all.

6y ED WYNN, ' he Perfect Fool I
Dear Air Wynn:
In our little town there has start
ed a movement which Is called “The
Own Your Own Home Movement.”
Can you tell me what this Is and
why It la called a Building'-Loan
Scheme? Truly Yours.
Answer: The Idea Is a simple
one. The building companies ad
vance the money to build you a
house and you pay them so much
money every month. By the time
you have become absolutely disgust
ed and dissatisfied with the place,
It Is yours.
Dear Mr. Wynn:
Yesterday 1 happened to be on
the East Side, nnd Just as 1 passed
two men. 1 heard one man say. In
a loud voice, “I’m a brick." In an
Instant the other chap punched him
In the Jaw and layed him flat In the
sidewalk. How do you account for
U. WOOD RUNTOO.
Answer: One man said he was a
brick, and the other fellow must
have been a bricklayer.
Dear Mr. Wynn:
Two friends of mine left yester
day on a camping trip. As they left
me I noticed that ench one had a
stone Jug In his hand. They told
' — r
me they were taking them along to
use for their pillows. Don’t you
think stone Jugs are rather hard
things to sleep on?

Answer: Your friends probably

to make them soft
Dear Mr. Wynn:
I Just received a letter from a
friend of mine In which he says he
intends coming clean from Denver,
Colo., to New York on a bicycle.
Do you believe he can do It?
Answer: He can come that far on
a bicycle, but not clean.
Dear Mr Wynn:
1 took my first trip to Chinatown
and the Bowery last Sunday. The
funniest thing I think 1 ever saw
was a sign In front of a Chinatown
hotel which read. “Booms 50c and
55c." Now what could possibly he

and a 55c room?

* MOTHER’S ♦
DURING the warn) weather Is
the time to let down on all un
necessary work so that mother may
have a little vacutlon as well, in
formal serving—letting the young
sters do the work—it will be a
change from school work, and It
is a good thing to train them to do
all kinds of household tasks. The
girls, of course, are expected to
have this training before they go
into their own homes, or how will
they know how to deal with house
hold matters and spend the money
given to them for the upkeep of the
home? Boys, too, should begin
early to learn how to cook simple
foods, be able to make a good cup
of coffee, prepare a crisp piece of
toast, and serve a well-cooked egg.
These accomplishments are not only
helpful but often necessary In cases
of illness or absence of the house
It Is not always easy or agreeable
for a good housekeeper to turn
over the work to her children, but
It Is most gratifying In results. Now
Is the time to serve the meals on
the porch or In the garden; the
young folks will enjoy taking the
extra steps and the novelty will
serve to delight the whole family.
Serve the breakfast buffet style
as the English do. Everybody has
a few covered dishes to keep things
hot, and with hot coffee and toast,
one may make a fine breakfast.

Can we Improve on Thackeray?
No, but we can add this thought
that while It's silly enough to lose
sleep worrying about a tooth that’s
got to come out anyway. It’s abso
lutely Insane to worry about losing
a tooth that after all may never
have to come out!
And that’s the heaviest burden of
most of our worries, Isn’t it—the
misfortunes that never do occur!
That’s what worry Is for, Isn’t It?—

for—to give us bald heads and acid
