HENRY WAS LOST
But Not for Long-A Little Thought, a Telephone and Thirty
Cents Finally Bring Him Safely to Hi? Uncle's Again.
This :s a true story of what oni
?tt!* b y did when he was lost. Hit
?imc ?I Henry tkissier and he is i
t*w York boy, who lives or
per West Side. He is onlj
fight \c.,rs old and he had never be
fore been allowed to go anywhen
?0MH Mother or father had alway!
jone with him
lu-t before Easter, Henry's aunl
. nele, who li?e about twenty
I : Long Island, invited him
-ml his Lastet vacation with
:hem. Henry was quite delighted and
?oked forward to his trip very eager
y The night bef??re he went, -when
?ring every one for the
tniie wli,i! he was going to do,
lather said. "Here'? I quarter. Henry.
Buy yourself a kite or a ball or ?ome
Ilenry wriggled with joy. He knew
e could buy much more than a
r a ball for twenty-five whole
"And here's ten cents for some ice
crein?. Henry." said mother.
A friend oi father's, who lived in
the apartment house across the hall
?r? thee. ! "Well," he said.
'?hue you're at it. Henry-, you might
just ai well buy yourself an automo?
bile or ? li'iusc and lot " And he
; -bed in his pocket and produced an?
. enl -' With the privilege of
ftsding it sll uist as he pleased! He
?vonderrd if there were "movie"
ih-i".?. d?wn on long Island.
The next morning, an: ?1 much ex
citement, Henry departed. Uncl
Jim met him at the station and drov
; him home. How he enjoyed it all
1 He wondered that night about th
moving picture theatres. He hadn'
' seen any. bul he knew there was ?

One d; ?us aunt asiteri him to g(
to the -t<>re tor some milk. She gav<
him e> pi .it directions, and he rr.uliei
the stoi vilely, bought the milk am
start, i! h me again.
Bui how different everything
looked It wrts easy enough going
but coming back, when he saw every?
thing from a different side, and when
"turn to your right" had to he
changed to "turn to your left," it was
much more difficult.
Henry became confused. He thought
a few minutes, then turned around and
walked back to the store where he
had bought the milk.
"I don't know how to get home,"
he said to Mrs. Smith, whose husband
kept the store.
"What's your name?" she a?ked him.
"I Icriry Gossler."
"Where do you live?"
"\'ew York! My goodness, how on
earth did you get way down here?"
"I came down on the train. I'm
Maying with my aunt and uncle."
'What's your uncle's name?'

He never fights or run? away,
Because he goe? on wheel?.
I couldn't ride a real dog;
He'd hrte, or ? hu.se the eat.
And he would never like to stay
Inside s city flat.
i v hen he saw that Mrs. Smith didn'l
! know he became really frightened
"Oh, I want tny mother," he cried.
Then he saw- the telephone.
"< )h. let me telephone to tny mother.
She'll come and get me and take me
He took the receiver. "Riverside
4.;r,J, please," he said.
"Thirty cents." said "Central."
Thirty cents! That would have
taken him to two moving picture
shows, bought an ice cream soda and
live cents' worth of candy. Neverthe?
less, he took from his pocket thirty of
his oO cents and manfully deposited it
?n the telephone slot.
Then he heard his mother's voice.
"Oh, mother." he sobbed. "Come,
Ret me. I'm lost snd I want to go
Naturally Henry's mother was als->
"What do you mear?, Henry? Where
"I'm in a store near the railroad sta?
tion. You come down on the train
and I'll wait at the station for you,
and then you can take me home."
Hut then Mrs Smith interrupted and
took the receiver from Henry to talk
to his mother. She learned that Uncle
Jim's other name was Davis, and that
he lived about a half-mile away, and
she promised she would se? that
Henry reached home safely.
When Mr. Smith came back with
his horse and wagon he lifted Henry
I in and drove him back to his uncle's.
PUSS IN BOOTS JR.
Stops at Inn Where Dame Trot Serves
Trout for Lunch?Sees Goosey Gander
and the Dog That Worried the Cat.
B- DAVID M. rORKY.
Since he ssid goodby to Little B
Blue early in the morning Puss Juni
had met with no adventures.
"If there's anything I love it's fist
he exclaimed as he sat down at t
table. He was very hungry after 1
long day's travel, and the little inn
which he was stopping was cool ai
"Little fishy in the brook,
Papa catch him with a hook,
Mamma fry him in the pan,
Johnny eat him like a man,"
sang a sweet voice, and in came Dan
Trot with a big platter, on which w?
steaming a delicious trout.
Puss Junior looked up. "Did M
Trot catch it?" he asked, politely a
sisting her to place it on the table.
"Of course," she answered, "fis
don't catch themselves, unless they'i
playing tag in the pool. There's a di
ference between being caught an
Puss Junior nodded. "Yes," he ac
mitted. "there is."
INQUISITIVE KITTENS WATCH
HIM AS HE EATS.
Dame Trot had left the door aja
rnd peeking through the crack wer
ali of her cats, watching with longinj
eyes the feast on the table.
"He is a very handsome cat," re
marked the elder Miss Puss to her sis
ters, "isn't he?"
"Beautiful whiskers." replied thi
youngest, "but his boots?oh, my
aren't they splendid?"
Puss Junior looked up and, seeing
the curious little faces in the doorway
gave a knowing wink.
"Shoo!" shouted Dame Trot, as she
turned from the table to leave the
room. "Shoo! You naughty kittens;
you'll have your dinner when this gen?
tleman has finished, and not before."
I And she closed the door and left him
to eat his meal in peace.
'T know now what it must be to
have a cat around when you're eating
fish," he remarked aloud; "they act as
if they were half starved, althougn
they look as fat as can be.
"I suppose I might as well stay here
until to-morrow morning, as it seems
to be a very well kept inn, and per?
haps there might be fish for break?
fast. At any rate," he continued, as
he walked out on the front porch, "it
is too hot to travel any more to-day."
PUSS FINDS A SWING AND GETS
There was a swing under the treej
nnd Puss Junior stepped off the piazza
and walked toward it. "Let's have
swing," he called out, seeing son
small kitten heads peeping around tr
back of the house. They disappear?*
for a moment, and then five kitter
lushed from the rear of the inn an
stood around him in a ring. There wa
a glossy black kitty, a snow-white on<
a silky maltese. a tabby and a prett
"Look out!" he cried. "I'll fall if yo
aren't more careful."
A DOG APPEARS AND SCARE
THE KITTENS AWAY.
Just at that moment past the in
came the Dog That Worried The Ca?
"Run!" screamed the little Tabb;
Kitten, and away they all scurried un
derneath the piazza, squeezing througl
a small hole in the lattice-work tha
screened the open space beneath th?
Puss Junior had sprung out of tht
swing 'when it was up high and wai
sitting safely out on a limb.
The Dog That Worried The Ca
sniffed around the porch, but the kit
tens did not come out. Presently ht
ran out of the gate and down th:
Puss Junior scrambled down th?
tree and walked into the inn. "Will
you show me to my room?" he said
to Dame Trot.
"Go right up the stairs and open the
first door on your right." He followed
her directions and ran up two stepi
at a time.
PUSS MEETS THE GANDER.
To his surprise when he reached the
top he met a big Gander.
"Goosey, goosey, gander, where
shall I wander?"
"I don't know, I'm sure," replied the
Gander, "but if I were you I wouldn't '
Puss Junior didn't reply for a mo?
ment. In his excitement he had re?
peated his Mother Goose almost un?
consciously, but he didn't tell his big
goose friend on the stairs that he real?
ly didn't need to ask him where to go
"I guess I'll go.to bed." he answered.
"I don't like strange houses."
"I've always heard that cats didn't,"
said the Gander, carefully waddling
down the stairs. "But it's pretty early
for bed; perhaps you meant you were
going to take a nap!"
PUSS TAKES A LONG NAP.
Puss Junior turned the key and
opened the door of his room. "I don't
know whether I'll take a nap or go to
bed," he remarked, "but ii I once go
to sleep I don't believe I'll wake
up till to-morrow morning." And ne
OUR DRAWING LESSONS
We are glad to say that we received
a great many drawings this week.
Some were evidently made exactly ac?
cording to directions ami were just
what we wanted. Others, which
showed perhaps just as much skill,
were very apparently not made from
tilt shadow of a crumpled paper, but
were carefully planned drawing-.,
either copied or originals. Those of
you who have a natural talent for
drawing have an advantage over the
oth-rs, but in order to keep every one
on as equal a footing as possible the
lesson conditions must be regarded.
We want to see YOUR drawings?
not your father-, or your mother's.
or your older sister's. YOURS are the
only ones in which we are intereste?!.

drawings which were received by
Thursday morning, and the three we
considered the best were sent by
