Nancy spent the next few day*
setting her apartment into shape.
She succeeded in locating: the '
Irate Anna, who had left under the
Harding regime, and by great tact '
and reassurance that such an in- ;

bit, while Edith was busy shopping
and winding up affairs, preparatory
to her departure for Europe. Nancy
found the damage done by the
Hardings oven greater than she had
first imagined. j
Bits of rare pottery, fragile glass
ware, small pieces of fine embroideries
were gone from their accustomed
places. Some of them
turned up in fragments in the bottom
of the kitchen cabinet; others
had disappeared forever. Table;

It was a hot afternoon. The
sun glared down from the cloudless
sky. Everyone was melting.
Dean sat on her front porch,
melting with the rest of them.
"Oh. such a day." she sighed,
as her dainty handkerchief
mopped h#r brow. "I wish it
would get cool?or that I had
something to do so I could forget
I am so ho?"
"Oh, Dean." It was the musiical
voice of Katherine, Dean's
chum. Dean looked up. Katherine
dashed through the front
gate, up the steps of the porch
and perched in the shade beside
"Dean, dear." she began, "you
know the circus that came to
town this morning? Well, It's
leaving tonight and Jim Just told
me they are loading some of the
animals on the train right now.
And Dean. I do so want to get
a picture of that blood-sweating
hippopotamus to send to my little
cousin in the country. But I
haven't a camera. Will you bring
yours, and snap the picture?"
Anything?Just so it was something
to do. Dean Jumped up
from her cushions. She ran (despite
the heat) into the house
and a few minutes later was
again on the porch with her
camera in her hand.
"Jaat Oie More Plctnre."
"I've got room for Just one
more picture on this film." she
announced, "and then I can have
the whole roll developed at the
drug store, l.et's go."
The animal trainers w*re Just
making ready to load the great
hippo onto the train when the
two girls arrived breathless and
hot at t'.ie clmig crrounds which
were not fs?r from Dean's home.
Very kind men they were, and
at the girls' request, paused in
their work to allow Dean to snap
the photo. The sun was shining
Just right and Dean had no trouble
in ^atchintr the ferocious animal
in a most striking pose.
The Hippo Leave* Town.
"Wem never get another picture
aa good as this in a hundred
years." said Katherine as she
watched her friend taking the
picture. Of course that was
stretching It a bit. for usually a
circus visited the girls' town
once a year. But -it was a good
After the girls had finished the
men continued their loading.

Hammocks A re
:Made of Staves
"Dad. did you ever make a
hammock from barrel staves?" It
was a hot evening, and the family
were seated on the front
porch trying to fan up ?ome cool
breeses. Ralph had spoken.
"Made four or Ave of them In
my younger days, son?why. are
you thinking of making one?"
"I am. but I can't figure out
how to go about It."
"Simplest thing in the world.
First, you' must have a good sised
barrel. Take it apart carefully.
I>on*t crack any of the staves.
"Then get out your brace and
bit and bore a one-inch hole in
each end ? all the staves. v
"Get four pieces of rope about
the ?i*e of a clothes line. Proceed
to fasten the staves together.
"Two ropes are woven through
the holes on each side. One rope
goes up through the first hole,
down the second, up through th*
third and down the fourth. The
other goes down the first, up the
second, down the third, and so
on, always traveling In the opposite*
direction." As he talked
Ralph's father sketched with his
pencil on the corner of the cover
of the magazine he had been
reading. The drawing was similar
to that which illustrates this
"You thread the ropes through
the other side in the same manner."
"Two holes must be bored in
each end of the two end stavesThis
i? done so that the ropes will
cause the staves to lie flat. Knot
the two sets of ropes, and then
bring them together about three
feet from the last stave. Attach
them to the tree* or the posts, or
whatever objects you are going
to hang the hammock to?and
there you are."
