A Free Ride.
Inside the jiiK, where -he had hid
den to escape Henry Hawk, Grumpy
Weasel yawned widely And licked
his chops, lie was having a dull
time, wailing until he was sure that
Henry Hawk had given up , the
chase and gone away.
In a little while Grumpy believed
he could venture out in safety. But
suddenly, to his great disgust, a
wagon came clattering in from the
road and pulled up right beside the
)ile of empty barrels near him.
It- was Fanner Drown, driving
his old horse Khenezer. And of
course Grumpy Weasel didn't care
o .show himself just then, especially
with old dog Spot nosing around.
He had already heard Spot give sev
eral sharp yelps.
"That old dog knows I'm here
somewhere hut he can't tell exact
ly where," Grumpy said' to himself.
"He can yelp his head off, for all I
And then Spot began to whine, and
run in and out among the barrels,
until he all but tripped Farmer
Green, who was loading the barrels
nto the wagon.
"Let him whine!" said Grumpy
Weasel softly. "His yelping and
whining don't scare me. He can't
get inside this jug of mine. And I
certainly shan't leave it so long as
oe stays here."
Meanwhile he could hear Farmer
Green talking to old Spot, telling
him not to be silly.
"From the way you're acting any-
,TOld Spot didn-t getrintMs.tiine!:

body might think there was a bear
around here," he told Spot.
, Old dog Spot explained to Fanner
Green in no uncertain fashion that
it was no bear but a weasel that
he Avas looking for. His nose told
him that. And there was no mis
take about it. But somehow Farmer
Green couldn't understand a word
he said. So after putting the last
barrel on the load Farmer Green
climbed up himself and started to
But old dog Spot wouldn't budge
an inch. He hovered about the jug
where Grumpy Weasel was hiding
and made such a fuss that Farmer
Green looked back at him.
"Well! well!" he exclaimed. And
he stopped the horse Ebenezer and
jumped down and walked back again.
"I declare I'd have forgotten to
take this jug if you hadn't reminded
me of it," he told Spot. And there
upon he picked up the jug and set
it in the back of the wagon.
This time Spot followed. This
time he was in . the wagon' before.
Farmer Green was. And all the way
down the road, until they reached
the farmyard, he acted (or so Farmer
Green told himl) like a simpleton.
The whole affair made Grumpy
Weasel terribly angry. -He thought
it" was an outrage for Farmer Green
to kidnap him like that. . And he
. was so enraged that he would have
taken a bite out of anything Randy.
But there wasn't a thing in the jug
except himself. .
. At last the strange party drew up
in front of the barn and .stopped.
Farmer Green led Ebenezer into his
stall. . And then he took the "jug,
vith Grumpy Weasel still inside" it,
-and in spite of Spot's protests ; set
it high tip. on a shelf in the -bam.
';Jt was easy for 'Grumpy, after that,
.tt crawl out of the jug.- He scur-
Med along the shelf, climbed up the
' -Avail, and glided through a crack in
c ceiling, to hide himself in-the

Are Windows Broken by Ex
Those who were in the vicinity of
the Long Tom explosion in July,
1916, or the explosion of the bomb
vin Wall Street last year, will recall
'.clearly that the roar which an-
riounccd the detonation of the ex
. plosives was followed almost in
stantly by a shattering of glass for a
"considerable distance. The Long
jVfom explosion, for example, was
credited with breaking more than
$100,000 worth of glass in Brooklyn
-., and- the lower part of New York
T City, while the bomb which, was
.directed at the Morgan offices in
Wall street shattered windows more
than a mile away.
The reason for this lies in the fact
' that the force of the explosion sets
..'"the air in the immediate vicinity in
V violent motion, with the effect of a
high wind, which, instead of moy
' ing in one direction, sweeps out in
" a constantly widening circle. These
'ir waves move forward with great
?" force, and, coming in contact with
a broad expanse of brittle glass,
.' shatter it just as waves would shatter
a flimsy breakwater. In spite of the
. fact that it is thicker than window
v glass, plate glass present a broad
surface, and is not supported except
. at the extreme edges, so that an cx
: plosion will frequently break a glass
, of this nature, while the smaller
. panes just above or below it may re-

THERE ARE PEOPLE AND PEOPLE
There was a certain manager
Whose shows were mostly girls,
And girls who wore but little more
Than brown and golden curls.
He brought the show to old New York
And, simple truth to tell,
Though critics panned it out of hand
It really did quite well.
For though the somewhat human race
We do not like to knock.
It's really 'true that quite a few
, Are fond of shows that shock.
There was another manager
Who chuckled when he got
A play that had a very bad
Or wholly vicious plot.
He brought the show to old New York.
And though folks more or less
Were scandalized, as he surmised,
It made a big success.
We. hate to paste the human race
Which we belong to, but.
There's quite a lot who like a plot
That's very largely smut.
Another manager put on
A play of simple life.
The sort of show to which you'd go
And take your kids and wife.
And now there're crowds around the door
Who clamor and entreat,
And think they've struck a run of luck
If they can get a seat.
For though some members of our race
Are low and base and mean.
There's more you know, who like a show
That's absolutely clean.
ANY RATE THEY MAKE THEMSELVES
The railroads are willing to accept business at any rate.
Hotel prices in the big cities have dropped so far that the average
clerk can buy a dinner for himself and wife for less than two weeks' wages.
Since the booze raiders went to work the expression, "You can search
me!" has disappeared from our language.

Jewel, Flower. Color
Symbols for Today
By MILDRED MARSHALL
The talismanic gem for today is
the agate. Cardona, who was a great
authority on the meaning of precious
stones, claimed that the agate Was
sure to bring its wearer pleasant
dreams, and deep, calm sleep. It is
also said to be a protection against
accidents and contagious diseases.
'The natal stone for those born ou
an anniversary of this date is the
cat's eye. A superstition comes to
us from Ceylon to the effect that this
gem drives away evil spirits from its
wearer. In this country it is inter
preted to mean that the owner of a
cat's eye will be free from morbid
Green is the fortunate color for
today. It is symbolic of everlasting
hope and youthfulness.
The symbolic flower for today is
the pink rose.

Where It Started
"Up to the Scratch." ,
This expression originated in the
old bare-knuckle days of boxing. As
there was no. ring, but merely a
roped-off arena on the turf, a scratch
was made in the ground dividing?
the space into two equal parts, and
the fighters "came up to the scratch"
to meet each other.
