If it had not been for Mr. Crow,
no one in the mill-pond would have
thpught of having a policeman. You
see, Mr. Crow had traveled. He had
looked upon many big towns as he
flew . over their outskirts on his
journeys between Pleasant Valley
and his winter home in the so:th.
And he had noticed that most ..ities
had at leas.t one policeman and
some of them had as many as two.
"You ought to have a poli.eman
in this pond,", he told Mr. Turtle
one day. "It would save everybody
a good deal of worrying, for the
policeman would always be the
watch for trouble. And when there
was any danger he would warn
"I've lived here almost 100
years," he said, "and I've hud to
be on the lookout for danger all
that time. If we had a good police
man maybe I could spend the next
1 U0 years in peace."
"That's the idea!" said Mr. Crow.
"But where are we to fiild a police
man?" Mr. Turtle asked. "I don't
know of any in Pleasant Valley. In
fact, I never saw one in all my life."
"Oh I You'll have to find someone
right in your portd," Mr. Crow told
him. "AH you need to do is to put
a blue uniform on him and give him
a club. That's the way to make a
policeman. . . . But he must be
fat," Mr. Crow added. "All police
men aro fat. So what you need to,
dev is to choose the fattest person in
"Then," said Mr. Turtle, "Paddy
Muskrat will have to be our police
man, for he's the fattest person in
After Mr. Crow had flown away,
Mr. Turtle talked the matter over
with his friends in the mill pond.
And all agreed that Paddy Musk
rat was just the one to wear a uni
form and carry a club and warn
everybody when there was any
Paddy was much pleased when he
heard of the plan. And he felt very
happy, because Mr. Frog, who had
u tailor shop, promised to make him
a new suit with brass buttons free.
' But Mrs. Paddy did not like the
idea at first.
"Won't it take you away from
home a good deal?" she inquired. "I
don't like to stay alone in the house,
because I'm timid." , '
You'll be quite safe," Paddy as
sured her, "for I'll be on watch for
dan geh, every minute."
"Won't you need a new' suit?"
she asked somewhat anxiously.
"Your old one is patched, you know"
"I'm to get a new uniform with
brass buttons free," Paddy toM her.'
"Mr. Frog is going to make it "for

that on account of the new suit she,

In three days the new sut was

Frog. "Here's your bill. And you'll

You see, Paddy Muskrat had mis

all that was free. He had to pay Mr
Frog for the suit. And though he
hated to do that, there was some
thing else that he dreaded far more

"I want to walk! I'wantto walk!" Over
and over again came the pathetic appeal
from the three-year-old cherub who sat
helpless at the window watching the happy
children on their way to . school. The
mother turned to hide the quick tears.
Poor baby! He did not know the doctor's
verdict: "Both legs and one arm are para
lyzed. He will never walk."
" .. : '' ':'. .!.,' ' ' ,-. '

while the parents watched for the im

Bobbie took his first 'step! What joy to

helpless hand reach out to grasp the penny
which is the bonus paid all good boys and
girls at Dr. Edwards' office.
Several years have passed, and Bobbie
is now one of the happy children who run
laughing and skipping, to school. And
when Bobbie rides past 24th and Farnam
streets he points to the windows on the
second floor of the Ottawa Block and says :
"There's Dr, Edwards' office. He's the
doctor who made me walk!"

. A pile of wriggling arms and legs, and
the football squad all in a heap! Easy to
understand how such strenuous sport
might result in strained spines or broken
bones. But you have had plenty of falls
in your life, even though you may not have
played football. Icy sidewalks, waxed
floors, banana peels, dark stairways, auto
accidents--an endless number of oppor
tunities for falls and jolts which are sure
to jar the delicate mechanism of the spine.
The spine is the human switchboard, and
through falls and strains put upon it some
of the spinal switches often get turned off.
This causes a short circuit of the human
electricity which is essential to health, and
dis-ease results. The sensible way to re

Dr. Lee W. Edwrds was a medical
doctor for years before he knew any
thing about Chiropractic, the druglets
road to health. Ten years ago, after
studying both methods, he abandoned
the practice of medicine. Dr. Edwards
practices Chiropractic exclusively, not
fr6m necessity, but from chojee. Are
YOU skeptical ? Remember: Dr. Ed
wards knows, both sides of the ques
tion! Dr. Edwards says: "If you are sick
you want to get well in the quickest,
