of the Electric Light company, who is
now serving In France. The meeting
took place at a banquet given in honor
of Fred B. Freeman, regional secre
tary of the Young Men's Christian as

base hut, to which Mrs. Kalk is giving
her services. Mrs. Kalk is the sister
of Mrs. T. F. Kennedy of Omaha.
General Harries, always in demand
as an after-dinner speaker in this city,
bears the same reputation in France,
for he was one of the principal speak
ers at the banquet.
There was plenty to eat at the din

rarities in France are plentiful in Brest,
according to a letter received by Mrs.
Kennedy, but of Brest itself, Mrs.
Kalk has no flattering opinion.

Peggy Is summoned to attend the trial

by Birds. On the way they are attacked by j
a large flock of Crows.) j
THE Crows raced eagerly toward
Peggy's train. The Bluebirds,
the Warblers, and the Tanagers
seemed such easy prey that they were
keen to attack. They had not had

Pfggy. knowing how self-preservation
is the first law of the Birds, ex

they did not. They bravely held fast
to the c.ariot, which the Bluebirds
pulled along as fast as they could fly.
The Yellow Warblers, which were

Just as the swiftest of the Crows
carted ahead to begin the attack,
there came shrill battle cries from be
neath the chariot
"Thseel Thsssl Thseel Fight!
Fight! , Fight!"
Up at the Crows earns the King
birds Peggy thought they had fled. But
they had no idea of fleeing. They
were so eager for a battle with the
Crows that they had hidden just to
make the Crows think the other
Birds were defenseless. Then when
the Crows, taking cowardly advantage
of their size and numbeis, had swept
down on supposed easy prey, the
Kingbirds were ready to give them
the surprise of their lives."
When the first Crows saw the King
birds they stood right up on their
t.-.ils trying to stop their swift rush.
But the other Crows coming along
like t swift flowing river swept them
The Kingbirds pitched into the lead
ing Crows with a fury that made
the black feathers fly. The Crows
squawked an screeched. They had
no desire to fight the pugnacious
Kirgbirds, and so tried to run away.
When they turned they became tan
gled up with the Crows behind them.
Instantly the whole Crow army was
thrown into a mad panic. Crow

The Kingbirds added to the con
fusion by hoverinn above the strug

down tor repeated slashing attacks.
Every peck of a Kingbird struck
home, and the Crows screeched the
louder and fought the harder among
themselves to escape.
Peggy, alarmed as she had been,
now couldn't help laughingi The
Crows were getting just what they
deserved. And they were so scared
that they were doing more harm
among themselves than the King
birds could possibly do. Indeed, there
weref so many Crows that if they
hadn't been cowardly bullies they
might have beaten the Kingbirds
by force of numbers alone.

Officer Martin did not follow the
pursuit of the Crows. Instead he
led the way straight for Birdland.
The Kingbirds chased the Crows into
a heavy forest, then remembered
their duty as guards and came hurry
ing back. Not one of them had lost a
feather, and they were as fresh and
noisy as if they had just been having
a frolic among themselves, instead of
putting a whole arniy to rout.
Judge Owl had his court in a
rocky ravine not far from the castle
of the Giant of the Woods. It was
already in session when the Scarlet
Tanagers softly lowered the aerial
chariot to the ground and Peggy
stepped out to greet the Birds.
"Hello, every one I" she called' out

high above the others, frowned down

Miss Nellie Farnsworth, who will

The question of preserving eggs in
water glass was brought to the at
tention of the food administration
recently. It is not advisable to pre
serve the summer eggs for winter
use. The supply of fall eggs will be
more likely to keep through the win

served in the spring to advantage.
