THE TALE OF

Tommy Becomes Boastful.
When Johnnie Green turned Tom
my Fox loose, out in the meadow, in
the moonlight, Tommy hurried
across the fields as fast as he could
go. You remember that lie heard a
t'ox barking:, near the foot of Blue
Mountain, and he thought it sound
ed like hit mother. So Tommy
barked, too. And as he ran he could
hear that other fox coming towards
him. Pretty soon they met, and
such a joyful meeting you never
saw in all your life. For it was old
Mrs. Fox. And she was so delight
ed to see Tommy that siie licked
him all over with tier tongue, and
'looked at him carefully, to see if he
was hurt anywhere. Mrs. Fox had
never expected to see Tommy aain.
Hut there he was, bigger than ever,
"and altogether too fat, tor Johnnie
had fed him well; and then, there
were those two hans that Tommy
Tommy Fox w very glad indeed
to see his mother crtice more. He
frisked about her, and yelped, and
jumped up and down. And when
she saw that Tommy had come back
safe and sound Mrs. Fox danced a
little bit, too. And then she took
Toning home. ' K
You remember that when Farmer
Green caught Tommy in a trap, right
at the door of his mother's house,
Mrs. Fo had been obliged to move.
Her new home was not far away
from the old one. It was snug and
!A1 rijhtl.Iwi.il!" .Tommy said
cozy, aii'd on the vwhole was a pretty
nice" srirt' 'of house, though the door
yard was not quite so sunny as she
would Jiave preferred, for the
branches of a big tree shaded it.
Tommy had to answer a great
many questions. His mother want
ed to know everything that had hap
pened to him. She was astonished
when she found that he had been in
the village, right in the daytime. He
was'.thfc only fox she knew of who
had ever been there. And when she
heard of Tommy's friendship with
the dog Spot Mrs. Fox was more
surprised than ever. She couldn't
understand it. And she shook her
head over and over again as Tommy
told her what good times he and
Spot had had together. Mrs. Fox
actually began to think that Tommy
was tenisg stories.
The ' other forest people, too,
thought that Tommy was, fibbing
When he" bragged ahout his strange
adventures. "And old Mr. Crow be
gan to cry, "Stop, liar!" after him,
instead of "Stop, thief!" as he used
to do.- ,
But Tommy Fox didn't mind that
very niuch. He knew that he wa;
ttlhng the truth. And he more than
half guessed that old Mr. Crow was
jealous. of him, because he had so
;nany wonderful things to tell.
Though the forest people always
listened to Tommy's stories, they
disliked him more than ever. Foe
he was always gtiing abflit boasting
of what' he had seen, and what he
had done, and- what 'his irfend, the
do Spot,: said.: " . .
"If. you're such good friends with
old dog Spot,; 'why don't you go
clown to the farm yard and see him.'
Mr. Crow said to Tommy one day.
Tljis was long after Tommy had
corne back to live with his mother.
In fact, it was quite late in the fall,
arid the weather was growing cold.
right! I ' will!" Tommy said
Hewal not going to let old . Mr.
Crow get the better of hurt. '1 11 go

"Golf-widows" is becoming a term
applied to too many wives. .
It is not right that, a husband
should spend all his leisure time at
the golf links.
True, he may need exercise, but so
does his wife.

like to go about alone, consequent

time in playing golf, the wives re

Women get tired of a monoto

as a companion, Mr. Married Man.
She married you because she liked
your society,, enjoyed it better than
that of any one else.
She has a right to expect you
will divide your time with her in
such a way that you will give her
most of your leisure time.

When a lady, in proof of her love, , '.
With a nice nickel plated revolver ;. ;
Effaces the object; thereof, . .
Although we tdon't think we are yellow,.
We are sure we should never incur
The risk that is run by the fellow
Who sends a proposal to her. '
It's tough, we admit, to be single
But small consolation we'd find . ,
If our nerves were forever a-tingle .
With the thought of a wife of that kind.
We, should have a decided objection
If the passionate lady we wed
Was likely to show her affection .
By loading our person with lead.
Though beautiful eyes might adorn her
And her cheeks glow like roses in bloom,
We know we should sit in a corner .
Whenever she came in the room,
Whenever we dined with the charmer,
Uneasy we're sure .we should feel, .
Unless he wore bullet-proof armor
And a hat made of vanadium steel.
We make no complaint of the jury
Which holds, as-we cited above,
That feminize outbursts of fury
Are merely expressions of lave.
We feel no surprise whatsoever,
Or even annoyance. thereat,
But we are quite sure we should never
Propose to a lady like that.

Romance in Origin
By H. I. KING.
The hunchback superstition is ex
ceedingly prevalent in Europe and
America, especially among those with
a liking for "taking chances."
Touch a ' hunchback and you can
"play the ponies" or "buck the tiger"
assured of success. Anyone who has
visited Monte Carlo or a racetrack
when horse racing was in 'flower in
New York State, can give you in
formation on this point. When Paris
went crazy over .Law's Mississippi
Scheme a hunchback amassed a com
fortable fortune by allowing specula
tors to; use his back as a writing
desk on which to make out their ap
plications for stock.
But the gamblers ot yesterday anu
today did not invent the hunchback
superstition. They inherited it from
the days when the mysteries .of the
Eevotian eod Bes was celebrated by
the Nile. Large numbers of the
statuettes of the hunchbacked god
are in existence and the modern
"Gobbo," so popular as a chafm in
southern burooc. is but a copy ot
these ancient statuettes of Bes. Bes
was a malignant god and was gen
erally represented with Horus when
Horus typilied death.
Wearine an image of Bes -as - a
tharm or touching a human being
made in his likeness, but an idea
haspH on the orinciDlef of the old
saying, "Always take. your hat off
to the devil." By the .charm, or the
touch, you proclaim yourself cue of
Bes's votaries: his malignity is dis
armed and he gives you his aid in
return for your devotion. The hunch
back superstition then is a survival
of the cult or Bes: a modified form
of devil-worship: afl attempt to
propitiate, and to control to one s
own use, the powers of evil by a
display of allegiance.

Is the Ant Proverbial for Industry?
"Go to the ant, thou sluggard;
consider her ways and be Wise,"
reads the familiar passage in Prov
erbs VI., 6; and tin's saying appears
in a number of forms in practically
all languages, because,, in spite of
the fact that the ant is a distinct pest,
human beings the world over have
recognized the fact that the insect
is the hardest of hard workers.' In
fact the ant has literally as wellas
figuratively acquired a name fori in
dustry, for "ant" is nothing more
than a contraction of "emmet," the
Anglo-Saxon aemetc, and leads back
to a similar significance whether we
follow the Teutonic or the Norse
language, the German emsig meaning
diligent, while' the Icelandic assert
means work. . , .
Ants are of three genders the
male, the female and the wingless
'neuters. The males, after a short
flight with the females, , die, the fe
males lose their wings, and are
each enthroned in a colony as its
queen. The neuters are the workers
who build the cities, make the roads,
provide food, watch over the eggs
and attend to the hatching and feed
ing of the young. The community
may be said to consist of various
groups engineers, soldiers, foragers
and nurses and in each group tlfe
members work in concert and with
remarkable discipline, carrying out
the orders of the officers obediently
and industriously, thus proving that
today, as in the days of the Old
Testament, the ant is the hardest
worker in the world.' -j. ' .,
