Mr. Coyote Sings. j
Denny Badger was not at all glad j
to see Mr. Coyote. And after lien-
ny's ill luck the smile upon Mr. Coy- j
ote"$ face made the disappointed ;
digger feel almost pcc isli.
"What a beautiful evening it i!"
s.rid Mr. Coyote. "And what a fun
niglit for digging!" 1
Benny Badger glared at the new-,
comer, making no attempt to hide
his displeasure at ceiug liiin.
"1 don't notice you doing any dig
ging," he remarked with a sneer. He
had no use for Mr. Coyote, and he
did not mind letting that tricky fel
low know it either.
But Mr. Coyote was not one to
take a hint. If lie knew he wasn't
wanted anywhere, it never made the
slightest difference tp liim. And
when Benny as much as told him
that he was too lazy to dig a hole
Mr. Coyote did not lose his temper
even for a moment.
"No I seldom dig," he replied. "I
don't want to spoil your fun. If I
went to work and dug and dug any
where and even where tliere'd soon
he nothing but holes, no matter
where ,vou went. You'd have no
place to flip a hole yourself. And
then you'd be pretty unhappy."
Benny Badger hadn't thought of
that. And be didn't know just what
to say. because if Mr. Coyote meant
what he said Benny wanted to say
something pleasant, and if Mr. Coy
ote was only joking Benny wanted
to say something disagreeable. But
'Don't!' he cried.
before Benny had made up his mind
how to reply to Mr. Coyote's re
mark his noisy friend began talking
"Besides," Mr. Coyote added, '"!
haven't time for digging, because I
have to uractice sin gins;. . . . If
you don't mind, I'll practice a song
' right now."
And .without watting to find out
whether Benny Badger did mind or
not, Mr. Coyote began singing in the
harshest of voices:
The Coyote's Song.
When Mr. Sun has gone to bed to
seek his needed rest.
And Mr. Moon has climbed the
skies to flood the plains with
Aiid Mrs. Wind blows softly front
the foothills in the west,
I love to sing my yip-ky, oodle
doodlc in the night.
W hen morning conies I hurry home,
to take my daily nap;
But when the spooky shadows fall
i ' and all the world is dark,
Oh! then's the time I'm wide awake
and ready with a yap,
A happy, yappy yip-ky, oodle
doodlc and a bark.
And none that hears my lovely voice,
when startled from a dream.
Will soort forget how T ' cgin my
chorus with a growl;
Nor how I quickly run the scale, to
end ft with a scream.
A happy, yapny yip-ky, oodlc
doodle and a howl.
Let them that do not know my ways
cry fearfully "for help,
And shake and shiver when they
hear my loud and lusty call;
While I will merely jeer at them
with something like a yelp,
A happy, yappy yip-ky, oodlc
doodlc and a squall.
And now I will explain to you

A happy, yappy, yip-ky, oodle

"How do you like that?" Mr. Coy
ote asked with a grin when he had
finished. . J
"Not very well!" said Benny
Mr. Coyote looked just the least
"rcrhaps I haven't practiced the
song as much as I should," he re
marked. And thereupon he started
1 to" sing it again.
But Benny Badger stopped him
"Don't! he cried. And he lild his
paws, dirty" as they were, over his
ears, as if he couldn't bear to hear
that song another time.
Mr. Coyote smiled agreeably.
"I see," he said easily. "You don't
v enjoy music as I do. But I Relieve
we have one taste in common."
"What's rhat?" Benny Badger
asked him; for in spite of his paws
being over his ears, he heard what
Mr. Coyote said. "What's that?"
"Ground Squirrels!" Mr. Coyote
replied, licking his chops as he spoke.

Where It Started
" 1 Qigarets.
Cigarets, as the name signiiies, are
' little cigars." They were originally
made by the tobacco workers, who
wrapped scraps and sweepings in
some inflammable material, generally
a' husk of 'Corn, and smoked them.
With the application of raPer ' the
wrapper the cigarets became popu
lar as st-short smoke.

'Twas Ever Thus
A "squad of men come up the street
And work a week or more
To lay a pavement trim and neat
Before our cottage door.
And as the same vc contemplate
We say,- "How kind they are;
Now we can drive up to our gate
And not destroy our car!"
And then appears a second gang
With vilhatiotis intent,
To toss their mattocks with a bang
Upon our new cement,
And then with many A pry and wrench.
They rend the pave in twain,
And dig a deep and ugly trench
To hold a water main.
The 'trench is levelled by and bj ,
'The pavement is put back,
But when the surface once is dry
There yawns a ghastly crack.
And then a fourth uncleanly crew .
With an unholy din,
Rips up the whole blamed street anew
To put a gas pipe in.
And when they lay the pae again,
More burrowing human moles
Disguised as pick-ax wielding nun
' Will dig it full of holes.
In mine, or any otber town,
Now, as in days of yore,
They only put a pavement down
To dig it up once more!
Save davliffllt. Thr onvprnmnnt
