Broun man. "We are the
Gnomes and we Jfnow what fo do, but
the giant would know if we weni to
his cave, and we could never get near
enough to him to carry out our plan.
If you can do what we ask you will
help us. and at the same time you will
be paid for what you do by 'having the
finest farm anywhere around, 'for back
of the old giant cave Is a beautiful 'gar
den filled with vegetables that grow
large?"than any In this part of the coun

what they asked, for he very much
wanted a big garden.

Get on," said the Gnome who did
a" the talking. Peter did as he was
told. As quick as a flash all the little
men sprang up after him. They perched
on the head or the .horse and clung to
his mane and hung to his legs; In fact,
Peter could not see the horse at all.
ie little men were as thick as files.
Away flew the horse, for he did not
walk, as Peter soon dlscoverd. ami
looking down he saw a tiny pair of
wings on each of Its feet.
They landed on the top of a mountain
and the Gnome told Peter to dismount.
"You must go to that cave you see Just
below," said the Gnome, "and there you
will find the giant. You must find some
way to get his boots."
Peter was filled with the spirit of ad
venture by this time, and he randown
the mountain to the door of the cave
without thinking what he should do
when he got there.
"What Is that I hear?" said a voice
which sounded to Peter like thunder.
"Please, sir, I want a drink of water,"
tald Peter, not knowing what else to
"Well, I'll give you a drink of water."
said the giant, coming out of the cave
and grabbing poor little Peter by the
hair he took him to a woll.nnd plunged
him into it face down. Peter thought
he would surely drown before the ter
rible giant removed him. but he suc
ceeded In holding his breath until the
giant took him out.
"Where did you come from?" asked
"I enme up the mountain to see you,"
bald Peter, frightened out of his wits
nt what he had said, for he had no no

giant asked him the question.
"Well, what do you think of me. now

"Do your' asked the giant. "Well,

"Come in here." The giant led tho
way Into, his cave, which was the whole
Insldeir the mountain, and so high .that
Peter could not sec tho top.
The giant went to a kettle that was
hung over a fire and put some herbs
Into It. This ho stirred and stirred and
then he poured It Into a cup that was
so large that Peter had to set It on
tho floor and climb up on the sldo to
drink out of It.

this time he took a good big drink.
By the time he had finished he was as
big again as the giant, and Peter saw
a way to get the boots.
He awoke the sleeping giant, who sat
up. rubbed his eyes and looked at Peter
first With astonishment and then with
fear. - Y "
"Take off your boots," said Peter.
And tho giant obeyed. Peter'put th"em
outside the door of the cave. Then he
thought of something. He did not want
to be as large as he was all the tune,
so he- asked the giant, who sat trem
bling on the floor, how he could be
come small again. I
The giant told him In a 'hurry, for
he thought he could get his boots back
when Pete.r was small again.
He ran to his cupboard and took from
It a jug and poured some liquid Into a
"Drink this," he said, holding It
"No," said Peter, "you drink first."
The glnnt began to tremble and step
away from Pe'ter. But Peter followed
him and told him to drink. He looked
so tilg and strong the frightened giant
obeyed, and Peter, as he watched him
, grow small, made him drink and drink
until at last he was smaller than Peter
"Drink more," said Peter, as the,
giant or what had been the giant
I stopped drinking. He took one more
swallow and gave a queer scream, and
Peter saw running through the door
way of the cave a rabbit, which soon
was lost to sight in tho bushes. Then
Peter drank some of the liquid from
the jug, but he stopped when he was
the size of a man, for he thought he
could get on better In the world If he
did not have to wait to grow up.
He went to the door of the cave to
get the boots, but all he found were two
stones. While he stood there wondering
what had become of the boots he saw
tho little brown men running toward
"Brao, Bravo," thev cried, gathering
around him. "Don't worry about the
boots. They will remain stones and
never trample gardens again. And now
look around your farm." Peter looked
and where he had seen only a mountain
before ho now saw a big garden -filled
with growing vegetables.
"Go to sleep In the cave," said the
brown men, "and In the morning you
will find you have a house as well as a
garden. An.d now good-by; you him
helped us nnd we will not forget you.
Your garden will be the finest in the
land and your pockets always will be
well filled with money."
The little men scampered away, leav
ing Peter alone, wondering If It all were

But the principal reason for the wel

.that here and there throughout the au-
dlence will be scores of the school girl .
friends and classmates of the little
prima donna, for it was In Washington i
that Miss Claire spent her girlhood
days, and. In fact, it was in this city
that she received the first opportunity
to go upon the stage and to prove her

autographed pictures adorn hundreds of
dainty feminine boudoirs, for Miss

name has been linked with several fa

Is a wonder her pretty little head has
not been turned entirely.
But, strangely enough, this sudden
leap into the very center of the high
powered limelight of publicity and fame
has been taken by Miss Claire as a
matter of course, and she goes on her
way, studying and working and looking
ahead, for she has a future that must be
spelled with a big capital letter F.
SIIss Claire was born here In Wash

mother, who has been her persistent
tutor and adviser, early took the notion
that Ina would some day do big things

was fifteen, and began the lo-g and
wearisome round of the theatrical

her a chance and she did -what is known
as a "single" turn; that is, she went on
the stage alone and sang -and danced
Just about this time Harry Lauder,
the famous.. Scotch entertainer, was
playing in New York for the first time
and was the reigning sensation. Miss
Claire saw the famous product of the
London music halls and was struck im
mediately with the Idea of nuttlnir on
an Imitation of Harry in her act. The
management of the 'theater where she
was playing objected at first, but after
one rehearsal clamored for her to put
on the "stunt" at once.
That evening she- came on and did

Daisy" song letter perfects with the
kilties, flopping boots, swagger stick
and Scotch burr all In delicious mlmcry

an Instantaneous hit, for no imitator
had attempted to do the Scotch mono
