MR. BEAR'S TRICK
TUT It. UK AR'S house stood oh the side

Mr. Bear' had thought out to punish
the one who had climbed up to the
chimney and slid' down' Into his pan
try several nights and curried off his
pies and cakes.
At tho foot of tho hill was n
muddy pond, nnd that also suited the
plan Mr. Bear had: for once any one
started rolling down the roof of his
house, Mr. Hear knew they would keep
right on until they landed in the
muddy pond below.
Mr. Hear was u very sound sleeper,
and though he hud tried very hard
to keep nwako at night and catch the
thief, he hnd not been ublo to do so.
And once Mr. Hear wits nsleep, the

And so Mr. Bear hud thought hnrd
and long of some plan to stop these
visits, and one day he climbed up a
ludder to the slanting roof nnd
smeured It thickly with giease.
Thut night he did not try to keen
awake. He went right to sleep iib
soon us ho touched his bed, nnd Mr.
I'Nr, who was wultlng nearby, heard
him snore nnd knew It was safe for
him to slide down the chimney.

He hurried to the window ,'nnd
tooked out, untl In the moonlight he
suw nt the foot of tlio hill two muddy
objects swinging their paws about In
a very angry manner. He could not '
make out who they were nt tlrst, but
after a while Mr. Bear saw it was Mr.
Kox and Mr. 'l'ossum.
Mr. Tosstim hud been the one who
had visited .Mr. Bear's house so often, j
and one night he had met Mr. Fox .
Just us he was coming away with a
basketful of pies and cakes. "There i
Is plenty more," he told Mr. Fox. "You j
meet me tomorrow night and I will
show you how to get In."
But Mr. Fox did not care to be
wanted to get there tlrst
nnd take his pick of things, nnd he did
arrive tlvst, so by the time Mr. 'l'ossum
rolled otV the roof and landed In the
pond Mr. Fox was Just coming out of
the muddy water.
Mr. 'Possum could not stop to be
polite; he was rolling fa"t : and lie
gave Mr. Fox a bump, and back they
both fell Into the tmnldy pond.
"What do you mean by knocking mo
over?" Inquired Mr. Fox angrily as he
"What do j on mean by pulling me
Into that muddy water?" asked Mr.
'l'ossum as he crawled up the hank,
and Just as Mr. Boar looked out of
his window they began to quarrel.
"All, two of them!" said Mr. Bear.
"I will give thorn u good beating."
He was almost down the hill when
Mr. Fox and Mr. 'Possum saw him.
They stopped wrangling, and, dodging
and dieting, they run by him and up
the hill. But as they passed Uie
house Mr. Fox suw the roof, and he
knew what hnd happened.
Mr. Beur was bothered no more.
Ills pantry was as well tilled In the
morning ns when he went to bed, for
Mr. 'Possum and Mr. Fox were cured
of their longing for Mr. Hoar's pies
and cakes by one ttitiil bath, and they
did not enro to take another.

TOO MUCH TALK

During the period of readjustment,
there undoubtedly was a great deul of
hardship of which little or nothing was
heard. But Just the same there was
considerable moro talk thnn was for
the best Interests of the public.

constant complaining about it will
