OUR OWN TRAVELOGUES
By Prof. M. Tv Cranium
"While In Hawaii I had the presence
of mind for once to visit the Hula
beefastewla region: In this queer
territory there is a volcano, the only
one of its kind in the world, Including
Wisconsin. It is a boiling water vol
cano and has tea bushes growing on
its sides. It only erupts when a fish
falls into the mouth of the volcano
and a bone gets caught in the vol
cano's n$ck.
Then it hurls the boiling water out,
which falls all over the bushes. The
natives all gather around at the base
of the volcano and have ah afternoon
tea party that lasts for many mqons.

SAFETY FIRST
Bobbie's savings had been spent
enthusiastically for a china cow for
his sister's birthday gift In trans
portation, both horns of the cow
were broken.
"Never mind, dear, it still has a
tail," mother said to tearful Bobbie.
The tail was painted on the cow's
side in black. '
"When I bought it," Bobbie sobbed,
"I did wish its tail had been out be
hind, but now I think- it's safer like
that"

"But you certainly eat a terrible lot,

set by this.
"I expect," he rejoined, "that I ain't
so little as I look from the outside."
