By Blanche Johnson, 3M1 Cass Street, Omaha, ltcd Hide. "Children," said the clear voice of Miss Hcrford, one aftornoon near the close of the fccsslon. "f have decided to give a little play to celebrate the close of school, nould you like It?" "Like It." echoed tho children, "of roiuse we would." Tho next day Miss Hcrford gave out neatly written sheets of paper, contain ing the pails and the names of those who Tier to play them, and that same McnliiR ii group of girls stood disputing -tier the one ot which would be .chosen to play the leading part, which Miss llerford said would be glvon out the fol lowing day. "Dear me." said Margaret Kerly, "of eourse I whould lovo to be chosen to be the fairy mum. but Just think If you should forget your pnrt." "I don't oaro who gets It Just so Hazel Smith won't," cried Dorothy Pryor. Now, Hazel Smith was it new pupil In the little' Bedford county school and had .(inio from New York to this llttlo tnomi. tain town whero it was thought that the flue climate would help her falling health. When Hazel hnd entered tho school Bho had proved herself so dis agreeable to all the children that she soon found herself out of all tho merry making, but Miss llerford was charmed with ilnxel and she was fast becoming a favorltb with tho teacher, so that now sho stood u largo ehance of having the -oveted part.' "Why, what's all tho gossip between tho ladles?" laughed Hob Stone, who was a jolly hoy, and who had lieon chosen ilng In the play. ' "Oh, nob!" exclaimed pretty Patty Wold, "we aro so afraid that Hazel Smith will bo chosen queen In our play." "The queen." echoed Hob, and mode a wry face. "W.oll, so long girls, seo you tomorrow," ho cried, and made a Imsty exit. The llttiotarty soon broko up and the slrls walked slowly homeward still talk ing of the play. It was a week later, tho day of tho play, HuscI, as tho girls had said, had been chosen 'queen. Kverythlng was In readiness and tho stage, with the chil dren's help, bad been changed Into a forest glen reudy for a dance, of the fairies. Many of the small .actors were irrlvlng and all was In excitement. Mar laret, Dorothy iid Patty were some or ihe early arrivals, and now they were ready to appear on tho stage. The thrco had costumes nllkc except for tho color ing. Patty's was a fluffy light yellow, which suited, her dark complexion. Doro thy had pink and Margaret n light shndo f blue, and together presented a pretty '.Ho. Just then Hob sauntered up. "Ten minutes more and tlio curtain loes up seared?" he asked. "No," said Patty. "I could do two parts, and, by the wny, I Itnow two. mine and Hazel's, and" but her speech was stopped by the appearanro of Hazel, whoso eyes showed sho had been crying. '"Why. Hazel, what's the matter?" cried tho bujy Miss llerford. "Tell me." "Oh, I've forgotten my part. I can't hlnk of a word," sobbed Hazel. "Now my play Is ruined." exclaimed tho horrified teacher, "and nobody knows her part." "Oh, Miss llerford, Patty knows every word of it," said Margaret. "Patty, do you? Can you say It all?" sho cried. "Yes I can." suld Patty. And already Miss llerford had taken off the fairy costume and Patty had the right one on. "(Jet In line, quick," Miss Herford said, and when the line marched It waa headod by ltob and Patty, and Hob's face had a srln .on It which would not have been there had Hazel been taking the part. is Your Child's Tongue Coated If cross, feverish, bilious, tjtora uch sour, give "Syrup of Figs" to clean its little clogged-up bowels. ; v Mother!
