It came from the shut-in cut they
had just traversed.
"My sister!" cried Lora sharply.
"Oh. listen!" A runaway!"
There was no doubt of it from the
sounds. Rupert halted Fleecy and
bent his ear intently. He couid trace
the sharp ringing hoofs of a horse,
the jar and jangle of a swaying ve

"Miss Vane," he spoke hurriedly,
"please alight If a runaway horse

he is liable to go over the side of
the gully to sure destruction."
He knew just what to do. He cal

Save the paper napkins when you picnic in the grove!
Soon your old waste paper can will be a treasure trove.
Paper prices going up, forests coming down;
Soon a tissue paper cap will be a costly crown.
Save the daily paper too, call the paper man;
Put a combination lock upon the garbage can!
Save the paper dollar bills, now and then a five;
You'll be glad you did it, sure as you're alive!
Rent a safe deposit box, "daily stuff therein
All the paper you can find, long and green and thin.
Rent a room some afternoon in a big hotel;
Tear the paper off the walls, pack and guard it welL
Take it to the banker man, store it in the vault,
Then if you're not rich some day yours is not the fault
Paper soon will he too dear to waste on silly rhyme,
So I'm saving postage stamps against that sorry time.
