THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: SEPTEMBER 24. 1!U1.
The Little Busy Bees' Own Page
HERE ar fewer lttri oa tb Children's page today than there
tave been for several months. Surely the Busy Be- are not. '
losing Interest la their very own page. Perhaps their atten-
tion is entirely taken up with the beginning of school and that )
when they settle dowTi to the regular routine of school work, !
they will hav some leisure to give to letter writing. '
Of course, the Busy Beea should not neglect studies' for pleasure.
School Is the principal business rigM now. But out of business hours. Busy
Bees, remember tho Children's page.
Writing for for the Children's pa&e is a good thin? for the E".s Tees
because it gives them practice in composing letters and stories which have
definite purpose to interest all the other Busy Bees. Aad who knows j
out wna. some or the authors and authoresses of the future will be devel
oped through writing for the Children's page?
Reading the Children s page broaden the Interests of the Busy Bees
because It enables them to learn what boys aad girls In different parts of
the country are doing and thinking about. There is a Busy Bee away out
la Washington state who is very Interested in reading what Bees In Ne
braska are doing. There is a Bu3y Bee down ia Oklahoma who enjoys noth
ing better than finding out from the Children's page what boys and girls in
Iowa, Wyoming and ai! the other states are thinking ahou.

They were doing housekeeping on
the second floor ot :ie same building
where the telephone o.i:ce was. On the

much like our loading up. She seemed
to know we were dividing our family up,
and every time she got a chance she
would try to turn to the east or south.

More About Lincoln Park.

North Twenty-eighth Avenue, Omaha.
One morning when I was visiting la
Chicago, wa went downtown shopping.
Than took a launch at tha drainage canal
to Lincoln park.
We enjoyed the ride as It was cool on
tha water After landing we went to the
children's sanitarium. This sar.irsrvm
was for poor sick children. They doctor
and nurs them. W enjoyed looking at j
the ban lea In little hammocks. ar.d some
comfortably asleep in their beds.
After a while we went to the conserva
tory building. The building Is beautifully
built of glass. It la upon a little terrace.
There were gardens of geraniums and
foliage all around It: also, there was a
beautiful fountain, throwing Its spray of
water On entering the building all we
could see from top to bottom was palms
and ferns of every Imaginable kind.
After seeing all the flowers we got some
peanuts and fed the squirrels Once In a
while we would see a squirrel burrow In
the ground and bury one or two. They
were so tame that they would eat right
out of our hands. As It was getting late
we took the path homeward.
