LJ Man Who Believes Himself A Humor-
RHI The most obnoxious form ef him Is
fSml found In what is known as the Village
VSI Cut-up. He is the youth who thinks
I it Is funny to play practical jokes. ar,.
who drops lec cream down young
men s collars, and turns mice loose In
H i ball room, and who achieves his

' then sonp you shrill have, as much'

his most Jolly, pink nose twinkling

He had not gone very far on his way
to the storo before he saw Dickie
Chip-Chip, the sparrow bo
Dickie, with his slater. Nellie, was
i flitting about In the air. and. every
once In a white the two sparrow bird
children would dart at a white feather
I floating on the wind. They would
Latch the feather In their bills and
then let go of it again, only to dart
alter It once more.
"Well, Dickie, v. hat aro you doing'.'"
e.ked I'neie Wiggilj . pausing on his
way to the store after the soap
"Oh, we are practicing at catching
floating feathers," Neillo anqwered.
"i ou see, L'ncle Wlggily, when we
grow up to be big sparrows and have
to build nests of our own. we II have
tj pick up feathers Often the feath

"Nellie Ifl better ut catching them

"That's the boy:" cried Uncle V. ig

"Maybe I'll find one back at my hol

When the bunny rabbit gentleman
reached his hollow stump bungalow

called the muskrat lady. I
"1 did:" laughed Cnclo Wlggily.
"Whoop- Je-doodle-do' How Jolly I

it like a baseball at Nurse Jane.
Oh, don't be so cut-up like!" laugh- i
cd the muskrat lady, as sbe ducked
down so tho soap wouldn't hit her I
