The Busy Bees
HE contest between tho
is growing very interesting. Tho Reds aro just ono point
ahoad of tho Blues, and thoro aro two moro Sundays bbfore
tho contest closes, and n new king and quoon will -too elected
to tako tho placo of tho nresont rulers. Several votes havo
already been received for tho now king and queen, and it
would be well for all Busy Bees to sond their votes in within
the next wook.
Tho editor wishes to call tho attention of tho Busy Bees to tho rules
for writing stories. You will find them on this page, and tho prizes will
bo given only to thoso who follow them closely. It is much better to writo
a story with 250 words in it than to' write ono that Is so long that it tires
ono to read it. Another thing, we want the. Busy Bees to writo as often
as thoy can find timo to do so. It is tho wish and hopo of tho editor that
original stories will bo tho only ones which will bo sent to tho contest of
tho Busy Bee page. Tho name of tho story should bo written plainly at
the head of the page, and thon tho writing should only be on ono sldo of
the page. Thoso rules aro written with tho other rules, but "many Busy
Bees forget thoso sometimes.

Once thero was a little girl whoso namo
was Mary, and she was always merry
Hid bright; she was a littlo sunbeam.
She always minded her mother, and
whenever her mother would tell her to
4o anything; aha would do It willingly.
Bho would never say, "I'm tlrod."
Ono day as Mary was playing outside
sho saw a little robin that had his leg
broken and was limping. Then she picked
It up and brought It In the house. Mary
then told her mother that Bho had a bird
with a broken leg.
Mary took some medicine to put on tho
little bird's leg and then sho took a rag
and put it on tho broken leg. Then sho
fed the robin some bread. When tho leg
was healed she brought tho robin outside
and let It go.
When she came In her mother said to
her, "You can go with me In tho woods
picking violets, becauso you havo treated
the robin so nicely."
Kindness is always rewarded.
The First Sea Voyage.
By Madeline Cohn, Aged 13 Years, 1302
Park Avenue, Omaha. Red
Sailing across tho beautiful Atlantic In
the month of April was tho magnificent
ship, the Titanic It was coming to Amer
ica: It was Its first sea voyage. How
proudly the ocean bore tho beautiful crea
ture aloft! How many of those on board
wero proud to accompany tho ship on Its
first trip. Tho very machlnory worked
well to keep tho vessel going and to help
It reach tho harbor in safety.
And so this mighty vessel, powerful as
Its namesakes, the Titans, held Itself
proudly and gracefully, and with swift
oas: It darted across tho ocean.
But it was also to bo doomed, as its
namesakes were. As tho mighty Titans,
who were proud of their power, wero de
stroyed by their power, so was this proud
vessel destroyed likewise.
n.i fim trln it. warn unexpectedly to pass
an Iceberg. This beautiful piece of na
ture rivaled It In grandeur and had been
made by the Great Workman. It had
power also, but no ono thought of that.
The rich and poor on board the Titanic
were proud and confident of the ship's
power. Their thoughts were on the day
whm they should land.
But they were too proud. Their prldo
mado them careless. While they wero
enjoying themselves, whllo they were
planning and hoping, this vessel, which
was not as strong as they had expected It
to be, was running to destruction.
As a youth or young girl needs care
and attention, even when thoy think tney
know enough, so did this young vessel
need extra attention on Its first voyage.
But people were too Bure It was strong
enough. Rocklessly It bounded on on to
destruction; and when It struck the Ice
berg even then many lives might have
been saved. But they realized the truth
too late. Its first voyage was also Its

By Geraldlno Roberts. Aired 10 Years.
4218 Cuming Street. Blue Side.
We celebrate Christmas becauso our
Saviour was born on that day, and I
think Christmas Is the happiest day of
the year, that Is why I liko winter best.
We get the word Christmas from the
namo Christ. When Christ was born
there were lots of people there, even the
shepherds came. The angels sang on
high, too. The Saviour was born in a
manger. First tho shepherds wero
afraid, because they saw an angel on
high. But the angel said, "Be not afraid,
bohold I bring you good tidings." Then
the angel pointed and said, "Go there,
then you will find out what has hap
pened." So they went to the stable and
saw the baby. He looked so sweet and
mild to them. Tho shepherds did not bring
any presents to the Saviour, but the
king a,nd other rich people brought pres
ents to Him. Then in a uttie wnue tney

When Jesus was a man the Jews were
angry at Him. So they had planned to
nail Him to the cross. So they nailed
Him to the cross on Friday. They made
a littlo house called a tomb, and Just
put a bed In the tomb and laid Jesus
on the bed. Mary was so sorry that
her son was killed that she went to tho
tomb door and stayed and wept. Just
then an angel camo and asked her why
sho wept so hard. She said, "O, my son
has bcon killed by tho Jows." then tho
angel told her not to weep any more,
that He would rise again. Then the angel
went away, while she was weeping. She
heard some one say. "Mary. Mary." She
turned around and saw Jesus standing
beside her. Then she wept all the more,
but those were tears of Joy.

I am a new Busy Bee. I am going
to writo a story about "Unlucky Hans."
Hans was a boy who worked seven years
for a man and ho wished to go home and
see hla mother. His master said he could
and gavo him a lump of gold for the
work he had done.
Ho walked a ways and got tired. The
Jump of gold was so big and heavy. Just
then a man camo along tho road on a
horso and Hans aBked htm to trade. The
man Bald yes and Hans went off feeling
as happy as ever. It was making Hans'

very smart with his horse. Just then

By JEAN ROBERTS.
The misadventure of a certain ex
tremely rich young lady at a well-known
southern seaside resort has recently ex
cited some amusement In society. The
woman was trying a little plan she had
long cogitated upon, It appears. Wo are
accustomed In stories to the lady or gen
tleman of no means at all who figures
at the seaside as a lord or duchess and
revels for a short time In tho glory of
false plumes. This young woman's Idea
was exactly the opposite. She went to
tho seaside with a woman companion to
play tho part of a poor girl of "no im
portance." The scheme was working beautifully
when a most disquieting rumor was whis
pered to tho manager of the hotel. Tho
nice young woman, he was Informed, was
In possession of certain articles belong
ing to an heiress of considerable rankl.
How did she come by them? Was she
an adventuress? Had she laid wicked
hands on them? Sharp brains were
summoned to concentrate themselves on
solving the mystery. All the Inquirers
could learn at first was that the heiress
had disappeared, and no one knew where
she was. Had the girl at the hotel
robbed perhaps murdered her?
In the end she had to confess she was
herself tho heiress. She explained she
had become tired of people paying her
attentions because of her riches, that she
had resolved to try Just a few months of
tho delight of being a poor girl.
It Is clear this young woman has not
found riches an unmixed blessing. There
has been a fly In the ointment perhaps
many files. Most of us have probably
set ourselves to work at times to lm
aglno how we should enjoy life on
forty thirty even ten thousand dollars
a year. Wo should take good care, we
flatter ourselves, there were no files in
our ointment But all the wealthy people
I know assure me that money Is far from
meaning happiness. Do they tell me that
to keep me from being envious?
"How to be Happy, Though Rich,"
was tho title of a book published some
time ago for the benefit of millionaires.
One morning the people with tho stuffed
money bags must have been considerably
surprised to discover In their letter boxes
envelopes containing a beautiful circu
lar. In silver and gold letters, announcing
they might, by digesting the contents of
"How to be Happy, Though Rich." learn
the way of escape from the miseries of
the people with more money than they
know what to do with "Price One Hun
Mark Twain once said he never knew
a millionaire, who did not seek to Im
press upon him that wealth was a bur
den. At tho same time he never knew
a millionaire, who could take his hint
to obtain relief by placing some of his
burden on his, Mark Twain's shoulder.
"When 1 suggested It," re declared,
"they always walked off quickly In
spite of their burden. They always took
caro to take It with them."
While we all think we should contrive
to be exttremely happy ourselves with
wealth, we all recognize that a remark
ably large number of rich people do not

It is wonderful what a mess they make
of It. Is It true after all that, as Lord

Busy Bees Who Aided in Relief
Two of tho busiest Bees In the city 'or
the last few weeks aro Dorothy and
Rudyard Norton. They are brother and
sister and havo been assisting with the
relief work at tho Auditorium. Dorochy
has been ono of the assistants in tho
baby clothes department and has put
up scores of bundles for tiny bablos. Each
road caught him for Hans. Hans asked
the farmer to give him his cow for his
horse and tho farmer said yes.
Hans walked away and he came to a
bridge and was very thirsty. He started
to milk his cow, hut it did not give
milk. So Hans walked away until ho
came to a watchman who had somo wet
stone and Hans wanted to trado with
him, so they traded. And Hans walked
by a brook mid laid down and went to
sleep. He pushed his foot a littlo bit too
far and It fell In the water. Ohl how
glad Hans was that he got rid of tho
gold, horse, cow and wet stone.
New Busy Bee.
AVOCA, la., April 3, 1913. Dear Sir:
I want to Join tho Busy Bees. Alma
Pattee, aged 10 years. I will send you a
Once thero was a lark. She had six
little eggs. It wasn't very long until
there wero six little larks. And one day
a lark flew to tho field and she heard
tho fanner and tho son talking. Tho
Turmer said: "I am going to ask my
friends to help cut the grain." The lark
flow to Its mother and said: "We have
to fly away." The mother said: "Do
We ' Be Happy
on Just enough. Perhaps a lot of money
actually places most people on tho road
to unhapplness. They Imagine they ought
to get a good deal more out of life than
tho poorer person. And they find In
time they aro mistaken."
Ono of tho wealthiest men In tho
world Informed Justin McCarthy that
ho once mistakenly entertained tho Idea
he ought to bo much happier than other
people, considering his means. Ho
thought he ought to enjoy himself, and
he made up Ids mind that he would.
Hang the expense! It was a dismal fail
ure. At the end of a few months he
gavo It up. Tho faot Is a life that Is
"all cake" won't agree with us.
I thought of that tho other 8unday af
ternoor when curiosity led me to a skating-rink
where some of the richest girls
and the richest men In the country were
trying to enjoy themselves seven days a
week without a rest.
They looked so unhappy that I won
dered they did not go on strike.
Perhaps the rich young lady I l)ave
told you about at that hotel was really
looking out for a husband. The girl
with no wealth Imagines she Is hardly
treated In her poverty, but she Is, In
this respect, at least more fortunato than
her rich sister the rich young lady can
not marry anyone Bhe likes, and she Is
often sought by the man who loves her
wealth considerably more than he loves
her. The hotel heiress, It strikes me,
was hopeful that somo nice young
gentleman would come along and pro
pose to her under the Impression she
hadn't a penny. Then there could bo no
suspect her lover of seeking her for any
doubt as to what he really wanted.
"It seems to me poor girls have greater
chances of happy marriage than rich
ones," once commented Francis Jeune,
the celebrated Judge. 'It Is wonderful
the number of exceedingly wealthy wives
whoso matrimonial troubles become pub
He." The poor girls can have no ground to
reason save that he believes her to be
the sweetest girl in the world. But how
can the girl be so sure? She Isn't, and
that Is the reason. It was stated, why
one of the richest women In the world
died a short time book unmarried. She
could never make out whether with
her suitors, and she had scores of them,
it was not a case of "It's your money we

home seems as trying as actual poverty.
I was some time since carried off by a
very rich gentleman I know to pay a
visit to a Jeweler's shop. Ho wanted to
make a present to his wife. Ho put aside
a heap of things as "too cheap." At last
he got a thing a pearl and diamond
necklet that ran Into a sufficient num
ber of dollars to be worthy of her ac
ceptance. He gives bis wife everything
she wants, or she buys it for herself
out of his money, and It has become a
horribly hard thing now to find anything
that she really does want to the extent
of being pleased with it when she gets It,

The littlo lark told lta mother: "We have

The Seven Goats.

Webster St., Omaha.
Once on a time thero wero seven goats,
and tho mother said Bhe was going to

not to let tho wolf In, and they said
they would not. So tho mother went and
got some wood, and tho wolf knocked
at tho door and said, "This is mamma,
and I havo something for you." and tho
goats said, "Ict us sco your paws." Bo
tho wolf let them seo his paws. So the
wolf went away to tho mill and told
The rich husband is not dependent on his
wife, and the rich wlfo is not dependent
on her husband. Thero Is no call for
mutual helpfulness, and it is that more
than anything else that preserves love."
It would be a bad Job for most of us
If Us preservation depended upon diamond
"When I tell people that money won't
make them happy unless they have It in
them to bo happy upon a little they are
disappointed," declared Stead. "They ap

chance of happiness left for them in thiJ

happiness, they become convinced there
1s littlo or none of it to be got without It.
So they neglect the chances of happiness

There's a good deal In that. Most nf

up your mind to both. Don't put off be

If you havo practiced being happy before.
