The Three Piga.
Ellen Grobeck, 36M yaiiey mreei,
Omaha. Neb. Blue Slde
I will tell you a story about three Ilt
tlo pigs. You must know these pigs
lived In a farm yard. The first little pis
was named Whltey, the second little
pig named Blacky, and the third
' named Browny. The mother pig did not
like Whltey very muoh because It al
ways wanted to play In the mud. 8he
scolded him, but ho would not mind her.
And Blacky was always very selfish
when It was time to eat he would push
the others away; he wanted the most
food. The mother pig scolded him too.
Then came Browny, tho very best ot
all, for 'he was neither dirty nor selfish,
and he was a very nice little pig. Ope
day the mother called them and she
said; I -am getting old. but I .want you
to' be safe; so Sho said, what kind, ot
house do you want, Whltey? 1 want a
mud-house, of course, because. he always
played in the mud. And you. Blacky 1
I want a cabbage House. And you,
Browny? I want a brick house. Good
x for you. said the mother. You'll -be safe

the story of the rebuilding of this city after the Easter tornado. This book is "a companion
to the one issued a few days after the storm, and it has clear, sharp photographs 4x7
inches. They show interesting places in the district as they appeared the day after the tornado
and six weeks later. k
Omaha was wrecked in a few minutes, but the amazing spirit and enter
prise of its people resulted in repairs being made on nearly all the damaged homes within six
weeks after the tornado. No city in the world ever recovered so rapidly from a catastrophe.
