Tbe rood natural debate between

BY WAY OF DIVERSION.
The things I fall to think of when
I'm needing bright replies have al
ways been a source to me of deep,
regretful sighs. It's ever been that
wben It seemed I might have been a
wit, my mind has always lagged until
too late to make a hit. 11111 Hmlth
will say: "Your brain Is like a sheep's
brain on tbe dead I" And I should
aswer. "Hah!" at blm. I don't at all.
Instead, I make some commonplace
reply that has no point at all. For
something always seems to cause my
thought machine to stall. It's ever
thus. I'm worried, too. Suppose, the
King of Hpaln should say: "Why,
Dud, you're looking fine." It drives
me near Inrano to think that I might
hem and haw and answer: "So are
you," or something on that order.

Irof. Dombus's lovely home, Slowly
and steadily darkness crept upon
them. A coot breete stirred among
the trees and a btrd's voice was heard
singing a beautiful, tuneful song, It
was a new, strange song to Besa and
Uob. A bird that they had never met
was entertaining them this evening.
"That Is a mocking-bird which we
hear," the Professor told thorn.
"What Is he mocking?" asked Uess.
"Nothlnir at present. That Is his
own sweet song. As he sings It ho
works Ws way from the lowest
branohes up to the topmost twig of
the tree and down again."
The sons ceased and the Professor
gave a short, trilling whistle. Tho
Imitation of it came back to tho chll-
dren and him from the branches of

whistled and Hess called. The bird

Sometimes this feather-covered echo

This made It all the more interesting.
They called playfully to the bird
almost all evening. Ho was delightful.
"Is he always so much good fun?"
asked Hess and Hob.
"No, Indeed," answered their friend,

Dearest Cousin o' Mine:
1AM more than pleased with the
good work that you have been do
ing (I am speaking of tbe lied
Cross work of which so many of
you have told me). There is not a
nobler, more helpful way that my

work through tbe winter, too. Keep
up the little Kiddie Klub branches
that you have formed to do knitting
and sewing for our brave, noble men.
That many of you boy Cousins of
ours have taken up this, work Is a
delightful surprise. How you would
like to Join the troops going abroad
to servo their country and their flag,
If you only could! But that cannot
bo, and Instead you have done tho
next best thing! you havo deoHed
to help keep our men from suffering
untold hardships by making caps,
wrlstlots and a dozen other klndu of
comfort-giving woollen things to keep
