Witch of the Night
The Witch is Unmasked.
(Prfiy, prisoner of the Witch of tht
Nlirht, la thrown Into tha csga of tha Man
Eaters. Bha eacapea through tha aid of
tha Froga.)
PEGGY, spurred on by the cries
of the Witch of the Night, fled
desperately along the bridge
made by the backs of the Frogs.
The queer path was slippery and
rough, but it held her up safely as
she sped over the murky waters
and black sink holes of the swamp.
"Hurry! Hurry 1" urged Bullfrog,
who was leaping along beside her,
showing her the way. But she did
not need his urging to make her run
her very fastest. The thought of
those awful Man Zaters put wings
on her feet. It seemed as if she
could still hear their menacing hum.
Glancing behind her. she found that
this hearing them wasn't just fancy.
A string of Man Eaters was chasing
Any minute Feggy expected to
come to the end of the bridge of
Frogs, but it went on and on until
she darted out of the swamp to the
epe of the open lake.
From the direction of the Witch's
den came a loud cry.
"The Man Eaters have found the
trail. Follow, follow! She must
not escape. She knows my secret."
stopped abruptly. Looking down
she saw that the Frog bridge ended
under her feet. There seemed no
wav of pscme across the rinnlintr
waters of the lake. The bridge was
now breaking up behind her, the
Frogs fiercely attacking every Man
eater that came within reach.
"Cro-ak! Cro-akl" sounded a fa-
injliar voice among the reeds, and
Peggy saw floating toward her a
.board on which stood her old
friend, General Croaker,
i "AH aboard, Princess Peggy,"
croaked General Croaker. Peggy,
never questioning, stepped on the
slippery craft.
"Full speed ahead," ordered Gen
eral Croaker, and the board headed
out into the lake, moving swiftly
over the splashing waves. Then
Peggy saw what was making it go.
It was drawn by dozens of strong
wimming Frogs.
General Croaker and Bullfrog
fought off Man Eaters that came too
rldse, but behind them stretched a
long line of the voracious fliers.
The storm which had been threat
ening for a long time now seemed
werv near. Flashes of lisrhtniiiK
:ame from all directions.
Looking around, Peggy saw the
Witch coming swiftly along the
trail of the Man Eaters. With her
were the Night Herons and the Ra
vens. "The Witch; She'll gobble us up,"
:ried Bullfrog, He had been very
brave fighting the Man-Eaters, but
he knew he stood no chance against
:he Witch.
"Shoot her!" croaked General
Croaker. Peggy wondered what
she could shoot with. In the water
ihead she saw a floating stick. As
she went by she seized it. It glis
'.ened in the moonlight and at a little
listance looked exactly like a gun.
The Witch was now directly behind.
"I've got you nowl I'll make sure
of you by eating you myself," she

Her pension, said to be insufficient
to provide maintenance, the case of
Dr. Mary Walker, famous civil war
surgeon, and the only woman in the
United States permitted by official
act of congress to wear man's at
tire, is presenting a problem to the
authorities at Oswego, N. Y., where
Dr. Walker has her home. Dr.
Walker, who is 86 years old, is in
feeble health. She returned to her
home recently, after receiving treat
ment for injuries at the Fort On
tario Base hospital. At present the
Grand Army of the Republic pro
vide a nurse, but this is but temporary.
To few women comes such an
opportunity for patriotic service
as was offered Miss Grace Crosby,
who left Omaha Thursday to take
a course in Carnegie institute which
will lead to her crossing the water
for reconstruction work in Italy.
Miss Crosby is a graduate of the
Teachers' College of Greeley, Colo.,
and was engaged as a teacher in
the Howard Kennedy school this
year. She has made a specialty
of psychology and through profi
ciency in this branch, won a scholar
ship at the Carnegie Institute of
Dr. Clara Harrison Towne, in
structor in the University of Penn
sylvania, is a friend of Miss Crosby.
Dr. Towne left last June for Italy
and has been urging Miss Crosby
to complete her work and "come
over" to assist her.
Having accepted the position in
the Omaha schools, Miss Crosby
felt she could not honorably leave
before the end of the year. Twice
she refused the offer without tell
ing her friends about it. The third
time, she spoke to Superintendent
Beveridge, who told her she was
making too great a sacrifice in giv
ing up the work offered her and
who freed her from her contract
Miss Crosby is very happy in her
freedom to continue the work she

Teggy raised the stick.
"Bang!" she cried. The effect was
amazing. The Witch gave a squall
and dived abruptly into the mke.
Clear out of sight she went, but up
to the surface floated her queer head
dress. Then Peggy saw that it
didn't belong to her at all. It was
false, just like a switch made out off
The head of the Witch came up,
but Peggy again raised the stick and
again shouted "Bang!" Down dived
the Witch, leaving more of her trap
ping floating on the surface.
"Why. the Witch is only a Loon,"
cried Bullfrog in astonishment.
"She's a Loon," croaked Night
Heron, "That's her secret"
"She's a Loon," croaked the Ra
vens, "She's been fooling us all these
Now Peggy understood why the
word "looney" had so upset the
"And we've been wasting our time
catching fish for her and waiting on
her because we thought her some
strange marvel who could do us
harm," cried all the Night Herons.
"Princess Peggy was right. She's
a fraud. Let's finirh her and change
from Dismals and Dolefuls to Joy
fuls and Gladfuls," screamed the
Birds, and away they went after the
Witch, whose head bobbed up a
short distance away, only to dive
out of sight when the Loon saw
that her subjects had revolted, and
that her tricky reign was ended.
Peggy didn't see what the finish
of the Witch was, for the frogs
quickly brought her board to shore
at the cottage. They were just in
time, for the storm broke just then,
and Peggy had to streak it across
the lawn to escape the rain which
swept down in a regular cloudburst,
while the wind shook the cottage
and the thunder roared.
"My, I'm glad I'm safe and snug
inside, instead of out in that awful
swamp, thought Peggy, as she
crawled back into bed.
(Next week Peggy will meet the Liberty
Fairy, who will take her on a marveloua
adventure In the warlanda acrosa the
ocean. )
If the housewife who is burdened
with the problem of what she can
feed her family will take her purse
and stroll among the markets for a
time, she can soon make an ample
selection from the innumerable
things displayed.
Of the more substantial vegeta
bles there are Irish potatoes at 40c

There are carrots, beets, turnips and
parsnips at Sc per pound and tine

Then come the relishes, such as
Honey dew melons at prices ranging
from 25c up and California grapes at
15c per pound.
Among the apples shown on the
market are some fine Colorado Jon
athans and Ganos at 75c per peck;
California Bellflower at $2.85 and
Yakima Valley Jonathans at $3.50
per box.
Dried fruits of all kinds are selling

about the same price as last week;
best butter bringing 62c and guar

Number one eggs are a little
cheaper and are selling at 48c per
'lozen while number 2's sell at 43c.
Best Wisconsin cheese is quoted at
37c, New York 38c and brick cheese
at 40c.
When it comes to meats, the mar
ket is about the same for all kinds
of beef and mutton, but pork is
down about 7c per pound.
Those who are in touch with the
markets in general state that just
at present everything is at a stand
still due, no doubt, to the uncertain
conditions of the war, that if peace
should suddenly be declared there
might be a temporary drop in prices
but only for a time until they could
adjust themselves to the new conditions.

Shall She Accept Him?
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am
deeply In love with a young
man four years my senior who is
soon to sail for France. Do you
think It prudent for a girl to engage
herself to a man who might come
home a cripple and be a burden?
I shall always care for him (leeply.
whether he Is crippled or not. F. L.
I don't think, in spite of what you
believe, that you would always care
deeply for your soldier boy even if
he came back a cripple. There are
indlci eVons in your letter that you
would find it considerable of a hand
icap to have this kind of a husband.
Unless you are so proficient in your
own particular line of work that you
make enough to help maintain the
family, or unless you have some
money, the risk appears to be too
There are cases in which girls love
their soldier sweethearts so deeply
that one feels they will manage,
somehow, even if their earning ca
pacity Is not great enough to put
them, in the financially Independent
class. But these girls are not con
sidering in advance if it would be
prudent to run the risk of having
such a burden as a crippled man on
their hands. They care enough to
assume that risk.
Red Cross Nurses. 1
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Will you please answer the follow
ing question, which is puzzling many
people? I have in mind a young
married lady who. before her mar
riage, was an experienced trained
nurse. During the last year she has
been taking a supplementary course
flod studying French. Her husband
expects to go to France as a Y. M.
C. A. man.
Will the Red Cross accept and
send her to France as a nurse? She
would not expect to go In the same
unit as her husband. MRS. J.
Government rules absolutely pro
hibit both husband and wife serving
in France. Since your friend is so
well equipped and nurses are so
badly needed, why does not the hus
band stay at home and let her serve?
If he will not, the Red Cross would
be glad to place her in cantonment
service in this country. There is a
great, shortage ' of nurses and she
could render a valuable service on
this side of the water. She should

British Soldier's Address.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Kindly give me the name and. ad
dress of a British soldier in the In
fantry. LITTLE GIRL.
No, I think I will not give it to
ryou. I am glad to give advice when
It Is asked for, but not to give ad

Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
I have three sons and one son-in-law
in service. Shall I have four
stars on my service flag, and wear
a pin with four stars? A MOTHER.
You may wear four stars, and no
doubt you will do so very proudly.

WAR times have brought about a marked change in the use and con
servation of food supplies, and the butter problem has been most
economically and satisfactorily solved with the delicious nut butter.
American housewives have quickly accepted this wholesome and nu
tritious product as butter's duplicate for the table and for cooking.
It contains only the purest ingredients, namely
cocoanut oil, peanut oil, milk and salt.
In accordance with an old law any competing product for butter is re
quired to pay a heavy tax if colored, so HOLIDAY comes to you a
creamy white with a capsule of vegetable color, the same as used by all
butter manufacturers in coloring creamery butter.
