Tommy Fox Makes a Strange Friend.
There was one thing, especially,
that surprised Tommy Fox. And 1
think it surprised the dog Spot even
more. Tommy and Spot became
At first, whenever Spot came near.
Tommy would run into his hole, as
far as his chain would allow him.
Hut after a time he began to peep
out at his visitor. And finally he
grew so bold that when Spot came to
see him he , stayed above ground,
though to be sure he sat close to
the door of his house, so that he
could whisk out of sight if Spot
should come too near him.
Since Spot often came to look at
Johnnie Green's new pet, he began
to like Tommy. And instead of
growling, he would wag his tail, and
try to be friendly. And the first
thing they knew, they were playing
together, and rolling and tumbling
about, pretending to bite each other.
Now, Spot was much bigger than
Tommy Fox, and stronger. And
TURN OVER, YOU'RE ON YOUR BACK

But after a time he began to peep
out at his visitor
sometimes when they played together
he would get so rough that Tommy
would run down into his under
ground house and hide. But he
never lost his temper, because he
knew that Spot did not mean to hurt
him. And Toniniv was always ready
to come out again and play some
Johnnie Green was very proud of
his new pet. And one day when lie
was going to drive to the village he
took Tommy Fox with him. He
tied Tommy's chain to the wagon
and Tommy sat up on the seat be
side his ycting master. He had a
fineride. It frightened him at first
to see so many people, for it was
market day, when the farmers for
miles around came to the village to
sell their butter ana eggs and vege
tables. There was a great number
of dogs, too, running about the vil
lage streets. Tommy was glad that
he was high up on the seat of the
wagon, beside Johnnie Green, for he
knew "that he was perfectly safe
there. He saw so many strange
sights that after that first day when
ever he saw Johnnie starting off for
the village he was never satisfied un
less lie went too.
On the whole, Tommy Fox did
not have a bad time, being Johnnie
Green's pet And although Farmer
Green often complained that Johnnie
would rather play with his young
fox than drive the cows, or fe';d the
chickens, or fetch water from the
pump, still Farmer Green himself
rather enjoyed watching Tommy
But at last something happened
that made Farmer Green very angry.
One morning he discovered that a
fine hen had disappeared, during the
night. And the following night an
other hen vanished.
Farmer Green was puzzled. Old
Spot had been loose all the time, and
he had never barked once. That was
what made Farmer Green suspicious.
Farmer Green went out into his
dooryard, where Tommy Fox was
basking in the sunshine. Tommy
looked up at Farmer Green very in
nocently. You would have thought
lie had never done anything wrong in
all his life.
Farmer Green began to exa.nmc
the -ground about Tommy's . hous;.
He didn't find anything unusual. But
when he knelt down and peered into
the hole Tommy Fox had dug for
himself, what should he see but sev
eral hen feathers 1
That was- enough for Farmer
Green. He knew then where his lat
hens had gone. But he was puzzled.
There was Tommy, chained 'fast to
the stake. How could he ever have
visited the hen house-?- -
Farmer Green picked up Tommy's
chain. And to his surprise he ir.imd
that the end of it wasn't fastened
to the stake at all. It had worked
loose, somehow. And Tommy had
been free to wander about as "much
as he pleased.

More Truth Than Poetry
' By JAMES J. MONTAGUE.
When little Mr. Sleepyhead
Who slumbered, as a rule,
Until we dragged him out of bed,
In time to go to school.
Upon the minute in his chair
At breakfast time appears
And we observe he's brushed his hair
And washed behind his ears,
Mother's rather ill at ease
And wears a puzled frown,
Until it happens that she sees
The circus bills down town.
When he don't play around the yard
Until the set of sun,
But in his bedroom labors hard
To get his home work done,
When blithe and willingly he goes
Upstairs at nine o'clock.
And neatly puts away his clothes.
It gives us quite a shock.
And yet it all would be quite clear
If we but only knew.
The circus will be showing here
Within a week or two.
A week or two the pussy cat
Will never make a wail
Of bitter protestation at
The pulling of her tail.
A week or two the tools and toys
Will all be put away ,
And not a loud or jarring noise
Will mar each perfect day.
We'll think that Mr. Sleepyhead
Has turned a halo'd saint,
But after circus day has sped
We'll find out that he ain't
One wonders if Mr. Stillman is preparing to go into the movies.

Why Are Rivers Never Still?
The law of gravitation, reduced to
its simplest terms, declares that
every particle of matter attracts
every other particle of matter in the
universe with a force which operates
along a straight line joining the two.
So far as the earth is concerned, this
force of gravity tends to bring all
objects as close as possible toward
the center of the earth.
The water in rivers therefore is
always seeking to reach the lowest
possible level which in this case is
the ocean. Starting with the rains
and snows of the mountains, the
water trickles downward, gathering
force by reason of the broks and
springs which constantly increase
the mass of the stream. . Then as it
continues to grow the body of water
moves gradually onward and down
ward until it finally empties; either
into the ocean or into some large
lake; which, in turn, has an
outlet leading toward the sea. A
very few rivers, it is true, have a
hidden or subterranean . outlet, but
even this niusf in time lead toward
the sea. In other Avords, rivers are
always in motion because they" are
constantly trying to reach a point
nearest to the center of the earth

The Question That Puzzled And
Dicky's lips clamped together in a
thin line at Lillian's aspersion on his
working habits. If any one else in
the world but Lillian had made such
a speech an explosion of his hair-,
trigger temper would have followed"
But Lillian is a privileged person
Dicky. owes her too much to ques
tion seriously any censure of hers.
But I knew that she - had "drawn
blood" in her mocking little speech,
even though Dicky gave, a forced
laugh and answered her with a cred
itable assumption of carelessness.
If you 11 kindly explain to me the
reason for all this palaver. I'll be
very grateful, he drawled. "Asking
me what I think of your scheme, forsooth-,
when it's all cut and dried till
it's like jerked beef! It's like a hold
up gent putting a revolver to your
head and saying, 'Your money or
your life. Will you be kind enough
to make a choice, and what do you
think of my offer?' I'm on, of course,
there's nothing else I can do appar
ently, but I can see myself camping
in the studio a good share of the
time this summer."
His voice had a distinct note of
self-pity, and I saw that he was in
dulging himself in what Lillian has
dubbed his "martyred mood." She
shot a furtive, amused glance at htm.
"And a very comfortable camping
place it is, Lillian retorted. You
needn't lug any fagots and boiling
oil around with you on that account,
,1 sdw a reluctant grin twitch the
corners of Dicky's mouth, and knew
that, his good nature and his adnnra
tion for Lillian would soon banish
You win, Lil! he said,, patting,
her shoulder affectionately. "I know
I'm an awful grouch, but I'm sort of
habbergasted ovver the situation."
"I know," Lillian returned with
instant 'comprehension. "We all are
But we're lucky that we happen to
be situated so it will only be the
minimum of discomfort for us. I un
derstand that any number of families
are being driven beyond the com
muting zone. That means week
ends only for the fathers, while you
and I, Dicky, need only to run up
to the city occasionally. I'm mighty
glad now I kept my studio through
all this. I haven't been in the place
a half-dozen times since Harry-
went to South America, but I'll fit it
up a little more adequately and have
a regular light housekeeping apart
nient whenever I come to
the city. And my own apart
ment sub-let will be bringing in
nice little sum."
Dicky glanced at her rtuickly, and
I fancied I saw upon his face an ex
pression that was not disappoint
ment or apprehension, but which
smacked of both. I he next instant,
however, it had been replaced by a
mocking grin. '
'.'Listen to Shylock chinking his
.coins," he gibed. "Well. Madge, I
suppose we might as' well be driving
along home. , If you re going to look
up places out on the island you'll

quickly, that is for me. I shall
have to go into the city tomorrow to

Madge won't have to come back to
the house at all after she leaves day
after tomorrow if she doesn't wish
to. You -can take a few necessary
things with you to the studio, and
the rest can come out on the van."
"Sounds dreary," Dicky com
mented with a ittle, shrug, and I
echoed his lament in my own heart,
even while I wondered at Lillian's
sudden decision to spend, the next
day in the city.
. It was the first I had heard of it,
and I could not help wondering if it
had anything to do with 1 er investi

allusion to the subject, to all appear

her mental processes well enough to
be certain that it was far from being
either forgotten or neglected.
I speeded up the car with a feel
ing of vague irritation at both Dickv
and Lillian, a feeling of being left
out of their plans. That the feeling
was a totally unreasonable one as
far as Lillian was concerned I knew,
and I was also conscious that the
origin of mv annoyance at my hus
band was silly to say the least. But
I could not rid myself of the recol
lection of the queer look which had
crossed Dicky's face when Lillian
had spoken of changing her studio
ir.to a "light housekeeping apart
