. Johnnie Green's Guest.
There were enough night noises
before Chirpy; Cricket came to live
in the farmyard. What with Solo
mon Owls hooting, his cousin Simon
Screecher'sj quavering call, and the
musical Frog's 'family's concerts n
Cedar Swamp, it was a wonder that
Johnnie Green ever managed to fall
asleep. The Katydids alone were
almost enough to drive anybody
frantic if he let himself listen to
them with their everlasting "try of
Katy did, Katy did; she did, she did.
Johnnie Green himself said . he
wished the Crickets had gone some-
Magba h wanted to punish
where else to spend the summer. At
least, . he thought they might play
some, other tune besides cr-rr-il
cr-r-r-i! cr-r-r-il over and over again.
If they would only fiddle "Yankee
Doodle" now and then he said - he
wouldn't mind lying awake; a while
to listen to it. ;, '
Perhaps Chirpy Cricket heard
what Johnnie Green said.' Maybe
he wanted to punish him. , Anyhow,
he crept into the farmhouse one eve
' Jiingr and found his way into Johnnie
Green's chamber, where he hid in a
gaping crack behind the baseboard.
And that very night, as soon as
Johnnie Greert put out his light and
jumped into bed, Chirpy Cricket be
gan to fiddle for him."
vv Johnnie had been sleepy. , But
the moment Chirpy Cricket began
fiddling right fhere in his room he
became wide awake. He had had
no idea how loudly one of the
Cricket family could play his cr-r-r-il
cp-r-r-if cr-r-r-i! indoors. The high,
shrill sound was piercing. It rang
in Johnnie's ears and drowned the
tnufflcd concert bf the fields and
Swamp which the light breeds bore
through the window.- " V
For a few minutes ' Johnnie' lay
still. And then he sat upin bed.
"Til. have to get up and find that
fellow," he said. "If don't, he'll
keep me awake." J.K
The momenttie stirred, the fiddling
stopped short, i, Johnnie was glad
of that. And once more he laid
his head upon his pillow. " But. in a
few moments; that, crr-r-i! cr-r-r-il
! rang; out again, ; v ; . .
Then Johnnie Green tried several
remedies. He shook the bed. He
knocked over a chair. He; caught
up, a shoe and threw it toward a cor
ner of the room, whence the sound
seemed to come.' And then he threw
the other shoe. V
Every time Johpnie Green made a
noise Chirpy Cricket stopped fid-
dling. And if Johnnie had had
enough shoes ho doubt he could have
kept Chirpy from making any more
music that night. But, of course,
Johnnie couldn't have slept any, if
he had done that. Besides, he, would
have kept the whole family awake,
too. He thought of tht after he
had hurled the second shoe.. J, For
his father called up the stairs and
asked Mm what was the matter.
"There's an old Cricket .- in my
room!" Johnnie explained. "He's
keeping me awake."'i"r -
"I should think you were keeping
him awake," said Farmer Green.
"Get up and look for him if you
must. . i . But don't let him bite
youl" , -
"You wouldn't joke ' if this old
Cricket was in your room," Johnnie
He did not grumble often. .. But
he had had a long, hard day, swim
J Ming in the 1 mill-pond and climbing
apple trees. , ,And he wanted to go
to sleep.
Johnnie Green thought it was -no
time crack jokes. .

Parents' Problems
How can a boy ot 12 be helped
to be considerate of a visiting in-
, valid relative? ' r
' i A ereat deal in this case "might
" depend ' upon the aunt. If cheer
ful even though ill. the by will
easily be induced to try to be con
siderate of her. " Should her invalid
ism, however, be such as makes
cheerfulness not always possible, the
parents of the boy must do the best
they can to explain the situation to
- their son, and if necessary, insist
toon fight behavior
