Talks to the Fairies
Wind," they exclaimed, "don't you know
how to play 'dress-up' 7 We thought every
body knew that! Why, it's the most fun
of any game in the world 1"
"I know that Is what I have heard
you say," replied Mr. North Wind, "but
I never saw you play It, And I never
heard ydu say how It was done. Bo
how should I know how to do It? I don't
even ltnow whether I would like to play
It!" He got almost provoked when he
thought about how he had been left out
of this pleasant game, and ha, blew around
In front of the fairies' cave ijulte fiercely.
"Be good fairies now," he said, when he
got his breath again, "and come out here
and show mo bow you play." '
Then, Just as ha was nbout to call to
them again, he heard a soft little laugh
in tho cave, "What is your Joke?" he
asked, "can't you come out here?"
Again the little laugh. Then one fairy
tuck her head out and said, "How do
you expect us fairies to come out and
play with you when you blow around and
make It so cold we can hardly stand It
In our cave? If you want to play with
us, you must make yourself warm and
pleasant.' And she quickly pulled her
"Now what do you think of that?" ex
claimed Mr. North Wind as soon as ha
got over his amazement enough to speak.
"Who ever heard of a north wjnd being
warm and pleasant? It makes me laugh
to think of' such a thing!" He laughed
and ho howled till the fairies huddled
still farther Into their cava and shivered
a tilt among themselves. "J couldn't be
warm and pleasant If I tried," Mr. North
Wind assured them as soon as he got
his breath- "Can't you oome out and
play with me anyway?"
The fairled thought a minute and then
one of them said, "We can't really come
out and play with you, you're too cold,
but U you'll promise to be as warm and
pleiuant aa you can, we'll tU you our

"There Is an art In baking woll, how

Tho successful bread baker, according
to this authority, never destroys the
effervescent qualities of the yeast by
using water that Is hot. It Is always luke
warm and must have been boiled to make
