"One would think" Lillian began
a bit indignantly, then laughed in

an amused laugh, then she sudden

less than her usual tactfulness, Lil

Dicky's errand. That she had guessed
also, the reason for that feeling I was
-sure, and the Knowledge made me
uncomfortable. My foolish jealousy
of Edith Fairfax was a feeling I was
not willing for even so true a friend
as Lillian to discover.

at his face told me he was in a bad
humor, so I forbore to question him.

with the necessity of hurrying up

He was terribly frightened. He

It happened that Mrsvtox heard
the baying of the dog. And she
knew what Spot was saying. He was
crying "I've almost got him! I've

A shiver passed over Mrs. Fox;

he gave a long leap to one side.
"Now make a big circle, and jump
again. Then go home!" That
was all Mrs. Fox had time to say.
She stopped just long enough to fee

- The dog Spoltsaw her and gave a
yelp of delight. He did not know
what had been happening. He only
thought that no he was going to
catch the foxi which was the
stupidest fox he had ever chased,
running, as ' it did, . straight away,
with never a leap; or a circle, or any
other sort of trick to fool him.
Little did Spot guess that old Mrs:
Fox had not the slightest idea of
being caught. Sha had been fol
lowed by Spot himself many times;
and she knew exactly how to escape
him.. She jusf lingered for a few
moments, to make sure that Tommy
was safe,, and that ..pot was chasing
her. And then how she did run!
In no time at all she left Spot far
behind. V '
Now, Mrs. FoiL knew that there
was a ploughed ftfld nearby, and
that was just what lie wanted. She
scampered towards lfeat great speed
and went straight acVss it. . And
when sfie had reached ie other side
of the ploughed groun , she sat
down for a short breathing spell.
You see, Mrs. Fox wa: very wise
indeed.. She knew thatfj. in dry
weather, such as there .vfk then, a
ploughed field takes no scljit at all.
She knew' that when Spofe reached
that loose dirt Spot could rkt smell
her footsteps. And so she sjust sat
there on her haunches, andlcaught
her breath again. V

over again - - ' '
When Mrs. t ox reached home she
found Tommy safe inside their
housp. He was crying, because he
was afraid he would never see his
