A Hunting Party.
Cuff Bear was one of those lucky
people that eat almost everything. He
liked blueberries and he liked honey;
he liked maple sugar and he liked
baked beans. When he was eating
he never complained about his food
if only there was enough. Whatever
he had, he wanted a plenty of it.
He was wandering through the
v-oods one day when he heard a tap,
tapping a little way off. He
Problems That Perplex
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am 17 y2
years of age. The man In the case
Is 22. Now. I have known this young
man for about four years, but have
only been going with him for the
past four months. I really like him
and ha knows it, and I guess he likes
we well enough, but here Is where
ths trouble lies: He thinks that I
absolutely should not go out with
any one else as long as I am going
with him. He wants me to be his
wife some day, but I positively can
not get- married until I am 21 at
least, and he knows It. This is his
point of view, that as long as a per
son Is going with a certain person,
go with him and not with any one
Whenever I do go out with any
one else he has sevsn. cat fits and
Is ready to knock the guilty party
cold, and just gets awfully angry. I
have told him time and time again
that I don't care if he goes out with
any other girls as long as they are
not married), but he says that is
not the point he does not want to
Ko with them and he does not see
why I v.-ant to go with other boys.
Now-, we have agreed between each
other' that we will take your advice
on Vila subject, and I have promised
hi .n that if you think I should not
po with any other boys. I won't: but
do you really think I should give up
all my friends for the friendship of
this one? 1 do love him, but, as be
fore stated, cannot marry any one un
- til I am 21 at any rate, and I think
it is foolish to promise him I will
never go with any one else, don't
you ? '
Thanking you in advance for the
promptest reply possible. I remain
P. S. We are not engaged or any
thing like that. D.
You say you are not engaged, but
the young man has asked you to be
his wife. Three and a half years is
quite a long time for an understand
ing of that sort to drag along, and
they are the very years when you
would naturally crave, and ought to
have, a good time with plenty of
young people your own age. You
are right to wait till you are !1 to
marry. Xo one can tell at 17 whom
they want as a life partner, because
one's character and tastes are devel
oping all the time, and at 21 you
might have very different Jdeas.
Since there is no deflnte engagement
between you, the man has not the
right to assume such a proprietary
attitude. It would be better for both
of you to see something of other girls
and other men. and then, if you still
continue to care for each other in
two or three years, there is plenty
of time to settle down to definite
"twosing." The man ts older than
you and he ought ts realize that you
re entitled to a few years, of whole
some good times before you make up
your mind, i It seems to me that he
is unreasortble to be angry,
"Don't fly so fa-st,"' CufTg
stopped and listened and sniffed. And
then he said, "Woofl It isn't a man.
Unless I'm mistaken it's a Wood
pecker." Cuffy Beas turned aside and
plunged through the bushes until he
came into a little clearing. There,
working away upon a dead tree, was
Reddy Woodpecker. One couldn't
help seeing his bright red cap.
"I lay," Cuffy Bear called to him,
"let's go hunting 1"
Reddy looked around at Cuffy
"Hunting I" he echoed. "What sort
"Let's go hunting for grubs 1" said
Cuffy Bear. "I'm very fond of grubs.
And I know you are, too."
Now, Reddy Woodpecker never
had dreamed that Cuffy Bear would
ever invite so small a person as he
was to go hunting with him. So H
was only to be expected that Reddy
should be pleased and even some
"All right 1" he agreed. "When
you're ready, say the word."
"There's no time like the present,"
Cuffy declared. And he went on to
explain how they could help each
other. "You can scout around for
old stumps and fallen trees. And
when you find one with plenty of
grubs, come right back here at once
and lead me to it. I'll tear it open
to we can get more grubs in a min
ute than you can reach in a day by
drilling for them one at a time with
your bill. I'll show you how to
gather grubs in quantities. You'll al
ways want to hunt with me after you
see the way I find 'em." t
Reddy Woodpecker nodded hu
head to show that he understood.
Then he started to fly away. But
Cuffy Bear called him back.
"One thing morel" he said. "Prom
ise me that when you find a likely
tree or stump you won't stop to eat
any grubs. You mustn't eat any until
I come. It wouldn't be fair."
Reddy Woodpecker promised. Cuf
fy Bear waved a paw at him to hurry
him on his way. And off Reddy
He was back again in a few min
utes. "I've found one," he said. "Follow
"All right!" Cuffy Bear squealed.
He went lumbering through the
woods, trying to keep Reddy Wood
pecker in sight. In a few moments
he gave a frantic roar. "Come backl"
Reddy Wood peeler returned.
"Don't fly so fast," Cuffy order-

Miss Fort Is a Visitor

Adele Garriaon'i New Phaie of
"REVELATIONS OF A WIFE"
Miss Louise Fort, attractive guet
of Miss Elizabeth Barker, is a for
mer Omaha girl. She is the daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Gerrit Fort, who
made their home here for a number
of years and who now live in Boston,
Mass. Miss Fort is a graduate of
Holton Arms, in Washington, D. C.
During the last winter she has been
active in social service work at the
Boston dispensary and in the Red
Cross motor corps. Her sister, Miss
Henrietta Fort, who graduated from
Smith college in 1920, has been teach
ing this winter. She, too, is coming
west early in July and will vfit in
Cedar Rapids, la., and may spend a
few days here with Mrs. Burdette

"I can't fly ilowly," Reddy re
tarded. "I don't know how."
"Then go a little way and ait
down on a tree and wait for me,"
Cuffy directed. "But don't go out of
my light 1"
Reddy Woodpecker did exactly ai
he wai told. And in that manner
they soon came to an old stump
which was half crumbled away.
"Ah!" cried Cuffy Bear. "This
looks like a good one . . . I'll show
show you how to get the grubs."
With a few steps of his great pawi
he quickly tore the old stump to
Reddy Woodpecker gaiped at the
huge number of lovely fat grubs that
Cuffy Bear had uncovered. He gasp
ed again when he saw how fast Cliffy
Bear ate them. They were gone in
Licking his chops, Cuffy Beat
stepped back and said, "That's the
way to do it."
Reddy alighted on what was left
of the old stump. He looked at it
closely. And at last he actually
found one grub that Cuffy Bear
hadn't noticed. This Reddy ate,
making a wry face.
"What's the matter?" Cuffy Bear
inquired. "Isn't it good?"
"It's good enough what there is
of it," Reddy Woodpecker replied.

Why (Madge Felt the Impulse to
Shield Allen Drake.
The meaning of the trite old
phrase, "walking on air," wai re
vealed to me as I went out of my
father's room, after I had written
down the lists of names for which
I had aiked. I had no sensation of
solid floor beneath my feet, and I
reached my own room in a raptur
ous, tremulous excitement which
only those can realize who have seen
afar off the ligm of a long-cherished
but eminently absurd dream
I knew Allen Drake'a moods suffi
ciently to be sure that he was not
speaking lightly for all his appar
ent nonchalance when he had asked
me to bring back to him the code
which I had long ago worked out
for my own amusement, and in which
I had just transcribed the names he
had dictated to me.
Could it be possible, I asked my
self, that Allen Drake was to bring
me the realization of the absurd se
cret ambition I had cherished from
early girlhood, but had put away
from me when I married the am
bition to constiuct a workable code,
absolutely baffling to any one not
familiar with its details, a code
which should have its foundations
in the cuneiform inscriptions I had
studied with old Prof. Severance?
Curiously enough, the fact that the
man Smith, or some one else for
him, already had attempted the same
feat, did not dampen my spirits. In
stead, it gave the most potent flillip
in the world to a worker that of
Ia Lillian Suspicious?
I put my hand quickly to my bod
ice in which I had thrust the trans
criptions of the names Allen Drake
had given me, and more important
still, the copies of the queer charac
ters which had baffled the great ex
pert, and to which I felt I had the
key. It was an instinctive appre
hensive gesture, for I knew that I
should have no peace of mind while
thoie scrawli of such vital impor
tance were in my possession. But
it wai a distinctly betraying gesture,
as I realized when I aw Lillian
Handing in the doorway of my room,
evidently waiting for me.
Had she seen that quick, protect
ing movement? I could not tell, but
I fervently hoped she had not. With
resolution I put aside for future ex
amination, the ii stinctive feeling I
had that Lillian must not gain from
me any possible hint of the aid I
was attempting to give Allen Drake.
If she ever learned it, the knowl
edge must come from the govern
ment agent himself. And yet the ne
cessity of keeping so vital a secret
from Lillian, of all people in the
world, weighed me down with a feel
ing of actual guilt.
, "I was just about to send out an
S. O. S. for you," she said gayly,
as I came up to her, "when I saw
you coming down the corndor."
"Yes, I've been playing the role of
a model daughter." I returned flip
pantly, grasping, inanely enough, at
the first words which came to me.
"You're always that, I think," she
returned warmly. "Who's the bene
ficiary, Dicky's parents or yours?"
"Father wanted to 'dictate some let
ters to me," I prevaricated. "Come
Father Spencer Helps.
"Sorry, but I can't," she returned.
I want your permission to burglarize
Dicky's room. My crayons have
gone floey, and he has some peaches
i,n there that I'm going to annex
if you don't mind."
"It annoys me terribly," I scoffed.
'Here's the key get whatever you

me a graceful little curtsey, and de
parted for Dicky's room.
As soon as 'she was out of hight
I locked my door in feverish haste,
and hid the papers from my dress
in a secret receptacle in my trunk.
Then I unlocked my door again and
threw it open, almost upsetting my
father. A glance along the corridor

a way of getting the juice out of a lemon for you
without losing any of the flavor. Merrell-Soule ,
Powdered Lemon Juice is just what the name implies
the juice of lemons, powdered. It ia not an extract

revealed it till empty, and I drew
my father iiuidc the room and put
my hps to his ear.
"Mri. L'lidrruood was jut here,"
I whispered. "I told her you had
been dictating letters to me. Don't
ny anything different. I I don't
think Mr. Drake would like her to
know I was helping him."
My father looked at me oddly,
wai silr.'it for a moment, and then,
as we heard Lillian's returning foot
steps in the hall ouuide he said in
"Those letters were wonderfully
done, Daughter, dear. Do you sup
pose you could find time to help me
tomorrow and next day? I have so
much to do."
Lillian was in the room as he fin

for me to mention Junior's name
uncertainly before the interrupted
"There in't a thing the hat to do
that I can't do for her," she assured
my father. "I'll attend to every
thing, and leave her free to help you.
How is Allen Still at it?"
"Still at it," my father repeated
gravely as he turned away.
"1 suppose I'm a beast, but I ca.-i't
be sorry that Allr.n's having luch

She had uttered much the sanie
eiitiment a few hours before, and I
had heartily agreed with her. But
now I found myself mentally ranged
against her instead of with her. And
I wondered at the resentment I
found vi my heart toward her atti
tude, the fierceness of the resolve I
made that she should never know of
Allen Drake's failure.
