while, we stopped dead.
"I'm sorry," .said Teddy, apolo
getically, "that I couldn't cut
loose."
- It seems Teddy did 132 miles
an houronceand 90 miles an hour
bores him. I can understand that
feeling.
For the madness is on me.
Speed Jthatis the thing! Speed!
Let's have speed! Enough of
dawdling along at 100 miles an
hour. A snaU's pace at best.
Nothing terrestial is fast enough.
I want to ride a shooting star.
CAT ADOPTS RABBITS.
You don't have tb believe this
story if you don't feel like it, but
nevertheless at George Hutt's
house in Mt. Healthy, Susie, the
Hutt cat, is mothering two wild
baby rabbits which she kidnaped.
Susie had a. quantity of infant
cats which died untimely deaths.
Susie mourned fully one hour and
then she wiped her tears away
and her face brightened. (Nature
fake.)
"Mother love shall not be de
nied," she said. (Nature fake No.
2).
She fared forth into the night
to the home of Mrs. Jack Rabbit,
who lives in a meadow close by,
and was at that moment rocking
her two baby rabbits to sleep.
Susie kidnaped the rabbits.
If you wish you may deduct
from this story Susie's conversa
tion, but the fact remains that
George Hutt's cat has actually
adopted and is mothering two
wild rabbits.
SOME EXCUSE
This was the note which was
handed to one of the school teach
ers the other day:
"Dear Mum Please ixcuse
Johnny today. He will not be at
school. He is acting as time
keeper for his 'father. Last night
you gave him this iximple; if a
field is 4 miles square, how long
will it take a man walking three
miles an hour to walk 2j4 times
around it? Johnny ain't no man,
so we had to send his daddy.
They left early this morning, and.
my husband said they ought to be
back late tonight, tho it would be
hard going. Dear mum, please
make the nixt problem about
ladies, as my husband can't afford
to lose the day's work. I don't
have no time to loaf, but I can
spare a day off occasionally bet
ter than my husband can. Resp'y
yrs. Mrs. Jones."

Before declaring the hotweath-er-
condemnation unanimous, it
might be well to ask the laundry
man, the ice man, the summer re
sort hotel keeper, the ice cream
manufacturer and the corner
druggist.
