“It was a crazy thing to do,

“What was a crnzy thing to do?”
demanded Danny, looking puzzled.
“Going so far away from home

To this Danny agreed, for he

Whitefoot slept a little and talked
a great deal. Danny learned many
things about the Green Forest and
in turn told Whitefoot many things
about the Green Meadows. W’hlte

Great World in which to live. Dan

with the Green Meadows, and they
argued the matter over and over.
But the argument was quite good
natured and simply showed that the
things one Is used to are the

terrible dangers. To Whitefoot
the Green Meadows seemed a place

Why should we pretend things

friend one day to the zoo where
something in the weather or some
thing else which could not be helped
had adversely affected the disposi

that is one place where there is no
“affectation,” no "artificiality”—
and no breeding, which in other
words is consideration for others.
Of course our friend would uot
stay there long enough to make
much of a study of the matter—no
longer, probably, than necessary to
get away. But the din ot very In

question as to why it is not feasible
for humans always to Indulge their
Impulses, to do In the presence ot
others what they really want to do,
to express without restraint our

carry that to its logical conclusion,

perhaps by throwing things; In any
