Passing the Mat.
After giving all they happened to
c!iave in their pocketbooks, Mr. Rab
bit and Mr. Woodchuck began to
' pass their hats to take up the collec
tion for the poor boy that Fet?r
Mink had been telling them about.
And all the people who had come
to hear Peter's lecture began to dig
.down info their pockets.
"Thrt's right !" Teter cried. "Give
,'Wh'Sre are you going V Mr.
Babbit asked him.
- what you can! Of course, I di't
. expect the poor people to give as
- much as the rich."
iThat made everybody decide that
he would give all he had with him.
" and nuny people wished they had
: brought more. Besides, no one
wanted to be thought , stingy, like
Uncle Jerry Chuck, who had hurried
away as soon as he suspected that
there was going to be a collection.
When Mr. Rabbit and llr. YVond-
chuck had passed their hats to every
person present, their hats were filled
. to the brim. And they marched
proudly up to the stump where Feter
Mink still stood.
Fetcr jumped down to the ground.
'.'Keep your seats, everybody!" he
v called. '!The next thing to be done
i7- to count this money. And I vi!l
do that myself." So" Peter picked'
up the two hats and started away.
"Where are you going?"' Mr. Rab
bit asked him.
"Just a little way into the woods,"
taid retcr. Its so noisy here, wit If

"We'll go with you and help you,"
Mr. Rabbit told hhn. "
"Oh, you don't need to do that,"

Mr. Woodchuck to follow.
Well, Peter Mjnk didn't like that
. very well. You "see, he had planned
to go into the woods aione with the
money. And nobody likes to have
his plans upset. But all three went
into a thicket of elderberry bushes
and counted the money.
"I thought there was more,"
, Peter said. "Maybe we dropped
some of the money. You and Mr.
Woodchuck had better go back and
see if you can find any," he told Mr.
But Mr. Rabbit said that they
could just as well all go back to
Rether and search along the ground
as they went
"All right!" said Peter' Mink.
"We'll leave these hatfuls right here
for a while."
But Mr. Rabbit said he didn't
; think that would be a .safe thing to
da So he picked up one hatful,
and toid Mr. Woodchuck to carry
eter Mink didn't like that at all.
Uat there was nothing he cou'd say.
j So. they all went back together to
Jieople were still waiting. And they
found no more money, cither.
Mr. Rabbit jumped up on the
stump where Peter had stood and
"The question is." he said, "who
i is goinp to take charge of all this
. "I am!" said Peter Mink.
But Mr. Rabbit said "he didn't
think that would be safe.
"You have no home, you know,"
' he told Peter. "And you can't very
well' carry the money about with
'you. I must have my hat back; and
no doubt Mr. Woodchuck will want
Mr. Woodchuck nodded his head.
He certainly did want his hat. It
was the best one he had.
- "I would suggest" said Mr. Rab
bit then "I would suggest that I
take one hatful home with me, and
that Mr. Woodchuck take the other
to his house. Then we'll each have
. our hats; and the money will be per
"That's a pood idea!" Peter Mink
said. "The only trouble with it is
that it won't do at all. For you
and Mr. Woodchuck don't know the
poor boy. So how could you ever
give him the money?"
Everybody said that was so.

If Ave had never found the hoe
We might suspect the pup.
We were not there when it was done,
No witnesses were nigh;

But in our eager quest for clues

When he came in tonight.

That Mother made today,
Or where the jam is that she meant
To cool and stqre away.
Although we do not trust the cat
As much as we could wish,
We know that she would not do that
For jam is not her dish.

As great detectives do,

When no one' told her to. '
We have not yet run down the thief
Who took a whole mince pie,
But it is our profound belief
That he is still hard by.
We haven't tracked him to his lair,
Or tried to trace the route
He followed, when with stealthy care
, He bore away his loot.
But we are sure that he'll be found
Together with his spoil,
For little Dick is hunting 'round
To find the castor oil!

Mr. Rabbit looked puzzled.
"What do you suggest, then?" he
Peter Mink smiled. He seemed
pleased, for one reason or another.
"This stump," he said, "is hollow.
As you can all see, there's a small
hole in it. We can put the money
in there and nobody can get it out.
It will be the same as in a bank.
"I know I can't get through thai
hole," he said. "But what about
you, young fellow?" he asked Peter.
"Oh, I can't squeeze through such
a small hole as this," said Peter.
"See!" He pushed his nose part

And everybody said, "Yes!"

Romance in Origin
By H. IRVING KING.
Spilling the Salt.
The superstition that it is bad
luck to upset the salt at table is
sometimes said to have originated
from Leornado da Vinci's picture
of the Last Supper, in which Judas
Iscariot is represented as overset
ting the salt-cellar. But the super
stition is much older than that.
In ancient times salt was a com
paratively scarce commodity; fre
quently it was placed on the table
in one dish for all hands and just
as a dinner guest of today would
feel that he was "playing in hard
luck" if he accidentally broke a
Sevres plate, so would one of the
ancients feel about accidentally over
turning the salt-cellar. Besides, as
the ancients regarded salt ad an em
blem of redemptive power, it was
not unnatural that they should have
looked upon the spilling of it as an
The custom of throwing a pinch
of the spilled salt over the left
shoulder three times to break the
"hoodoo" is clearly a pagan survival
of the times when salt was one of
the propitiatory Offerings made to
the infernal gods who sent bad luck.
Da Vinci undoubtedly had m mind
the ancient superstition regarding
spilled salt when he introduced the
overturned salt-cellar into his great
