CHAPTER XIII. Brass Buttons. 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 everyone." "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 the pond." "Then," said Mr. Turtle, "Paddy Muskrat will have to be our police man, for he's the fattest person in the neighborhood." 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 danger. i 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 me." Mrs. Paddy Muskrat said at once that on account of the new suit she, was willing to let Paddy be a tolice inan..,,. .' ' .. )-H - ' "What' color will the" suit be?" she Qslccd. i F "It will be blue," Paddy told her.

In three days the new sut was finished. Paddy tried it on; and he was much pleased with it. "I'll wear it," he saW to Mr. Frog. "And you can carry mv old suit home for me." , ' " "You, can't leave my shop until you pa me!" Mr. Frog tried. ' "Pay? you?" Paddy exclaimed in great surprise. "You said you would make me a blue suit with brass but tons free I" "And so I have!" retorted Mr. Frog. "Here's your bill. And you'll notice that I have not charged you a penny for the buttons." . ' You see, Paddy Muskrat had mis understood. The brass buttons were 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 and that was telling his wife about his mistake. (Copyright, 1920, by Oossett A Dunlap.)

Suppose Bobbie Had " There's Many Been Your Baby V4 N a Slip" ' ' --aaassMsaaw "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." " .. : '' ':'. .!.,' ' ' ,-.

Then followed anxious, interesting days' while the parents watched for the im provement Dr. Edwards told them would come. Then the thrilling moment when Bobbie took his first 'step! What joy to teach him to walk, and then to see the once 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.

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.
