leg of the flrat regularly scheduled
flight between the United States
and Buropa 'At flrat It *a» plan

when the *er*’.ce had been properly
tried out, the big ship transported
The tremendoue Interest of stamp
and cover collectors fti the flight
waa ••'.denned hr the fact that more
than 187.000 pieces of mall were
stowed In the spacious holds of the
clipper before she took to the air.
The rate recently set by the Post
Olflce Department for transatlantic
letter postage Is 30 cents per ounce
to either the Azores, Lisbon or
Marseille, and a special 30.cent air
mail stamp has been Issued for this
The rate for west-bound mail has
been set at 12 25 francs per 10

Sam and Betsey were screaming
with delight upon seeing every

Some were in cages strung on
wires as high as your head, others
were sitting on perches along the
pavement and three or four bright
colored poll-parots were walking
up and down the sidewalks as free
ly as the people themselves.
As they walked further along the
bird market, Mr. Van stopped them
In front of a cage larger than a
packing box. In It, flying around
and resting on perches, were funny
little light snuff-brown birds.
"These," said Mr. Van, “a"#
nightingales,and the most versatile
singers In the world. Sometimes
they can be made to Imitate any

1 One windy day she asked me to
dr.ve there with her and “try out
the airways," as she pul it.
"But Doris, this is no day for a
novice to fly,” I advised her.
“Novice!" scorned Doris. "Mr,
Cmy, the instructor, says I’m an
exceptional pupil. You’re just
"Better not attempt flying today,
Alisa Marlin," the instructor urged
Doris. "You’re not an expert yet,
• Of course Doris ignored the ad

•'Going with me, Glenn?” she asked,
’ “No, I’m not afraid—exactly.
And if you’re planning to crack up
i might as well be there, too.”
So off we started. It was delight
ful floating through the air with
Doris. She was right. I was slow
and must learn -o fly.
For s while the landscape below
passed like a panorama, restful and
picturesque. Then the wind changed
and the plane careened in a sud
dent gust. I noticed that Dorie
suddenly grew white and fumbled
helplessly with the controls. How
I wished I knew what to do but I
did not. All I could think of was
to land as quickly as possible.
"Bring the plane down, Doris.
Down! Down! If you can,” I

and wrenchings in a farmer’s pas

placid but astonished cows.
It was then that Doris, instantly
became altogether feminine. One
thing that she was afraid of was a
cow and here were a dozen of them.
“What shall we do, Glenn?” she
cried, as I helped her out of th*
plane, shaken but unhurt. “Sup
pose these beasts attack us! Oh,
I’m so frightened."
"I’ll protect you, darling," I
'promised her. I bad been raised on
a farm and blessed those animals.
.They gave me a fine chance to dis

danger. Then I took Doris In my
arms and carried her all unpro
testing to a rail fence at the edge
cf the pasture and deposited her
on the other side.
“Now you’re quite safe,’* I as

Emerald ar.d Danny were look
ing for the d g who hai worried
the cat. They walked past the
s\, eet-smelllng celery field near the
cow pasture, where they found him
—a large brown and while dog.
The dog walked alowly toward
them and said, "Please, Miss Em
erald, don’t scold me, because I’ve
had an awful hurt."
"What Is the matter with you?"
The dog rolled his eyes toward
the top of his head. "See that
bump on my head? That's the
cow’s fault, and. Miss Emerald, you
don't know how I’m suffering'.’’
"0, you poor thing! What did
the cow do?" cried both the chil
dren as they felt the large bump
on the dog's head.
Emerald said, "I was very angry
w i you for worrying the cat all
day, but since you were troubled
too. we’d better go and blame the
Nearby was the cow pasture. A
low "M-o-o” came from the corner
of the field, and there stood the
c >w, looking over the fence at
them. She seemed angry, but the
c’ i'dren went to her and Emerald
s"’;l, "Why are you cross and why
did you toss the dog and make him

The cow shifted her cud and com
p' Ined, "You’d understand If you
w .e a cow, Miss Emerald. The
ri I's-mald forgot about me today.
Is it any wonder that I’m angry?”
"0, 1 didn’t know that,” said Em-t
era’d, "I’ll try to find tho milk-maid
and send her right over.”
So the children left the cow and
went In search of the milk-maid.
"Hurry," said Emerald, "If Jack
knew she forgot to milk the cow
she'd lose her lob.”
The children found the mllk-mald
leaning against the spring house
willing her eyes with her apron.
“Ah, she's crying,” observed Danny.
"She's had another quarrel with
her lover,” whispered Emerald ae
she went up to the maiden all for
lorn and said gently, "Don’t cry,
he'll come hack.”
The milk-maid looked at the
children In surprise, picked np her(
bucket and stool and ran oft with
out saying a word.
"That hired man ought to be
ashrmed of himself for making her
cry.” Emerald was Indignant.
“Jr.-’t wait till I see him!”
Then, from the other side of the
spring house came a man, whose
clothes were all tattered and torn.
He seemed happy enough for h®
was whistling. Danny asked, "Ie
that the man we're looking for?”
Einera'd and Danny ran until
they met the roan. Emerald said
angrily, "Why do you whistle when
you made the mllk-mald cry?”
The man looked surprised and
said, "Is the mllk-mald crying?”
Danny thought It was time for
him to say something. ‘ Yes, she’®
crying, and It’s all your fault.”
The man sat on the grass and
put his arms around the children
saying, “The mllk-mald Is crying
because she Is happy and tonight
we're going to be married.”
"Oh!” said the children. “That’®,
different," and Danny added, “I j
