JtoriUas Miss Clancy's mother who
"had washed tho clothes, her pretty
daughters, sharo In tho work being tho
Tianglngiont process. Mrs. Clnncy was
roud of Sadie's hands Just as ho
was jproud of Sadie's crisply curling
tladclmlriand bluo oyes and tho gen

You're .hqrrid, ..nnd If you don't stop
"Vah-Ti'li;!" yelled Tommy, dorlBivo

Sadto Clancy shot down tho ono

and catapulted ttoward Tommy. Drop

With Sadie attar :hlro. Ho darted to

Bwcrved Just a ht .door filled with
the bulk of yeaog :Slmms himself.
Young Slmms feelsfc indie's devoted
worshiper, Tobumx yecpgnlzed that
hero was no safe tare, tindeed, after
r breathless word frm if Rdio, Slmms
also Joined the chase 4wxl the alley.
As ho ruBhed past one of tho delivery
wagons he caught his test In the
trailing lines and pitched fcdlong in
"Pickles and prunes!" youa Slmms
exploded as ho staggered up,
"Oh, did you hurt yourself?" Sadlo
cried, looking around in horror. Right
in her courso was tho water hydraat
and, hitting it, she, too, ornaxaejatef
the alley pavement.
"Don't you know anything worse
than thatH she gaspod out furiously
as Slmms picked her up, roaring.
"Coffoo cakes and buns! Let me get
my hands on him I"
Tdmmy, who had paused Interested
ly to vlow tho unexpected gymnastics,
was doubled up In mirth. Ho bogan
to run again when his furious pur
Mars darted toward him.. Spying an,
won. .door into, tho baserajsn.t .under..
Leigh's furniture store, he dashed In
and his pursuers followed. Sadlo was
In the lead. Rounding some crates of
jdressers, sho saw a human object
ahrunJc up close to the last crate. She
grabbed it with a shriek of triumph,
to which the object responded with a
fiowl. Young Slmms, arriving, also
'Gotcha!" tie object yelled in terri
ble glee. "Y'wlll play tag in my base
paeat and earve initials all oyer the
aahogany, will yer? Ill teach you

j Leigh, the furniture man, as he
spoke was shaking Sadie and young
Slmms, occasionally knocking their
heads together for emphasis. Sudden
ly the size of Slmms seemed to con
fuse him and he Jerked his captives
into the light of a gas Jet
"Good land!" Leigh gurgled, releas
ing his hold. He stared at his neigh
bors whom he had been shaking.
"Why why " stammered Leigh,
and. eat down meekly. Then he gave
a sort of groan and scrambled to his
feet He had sat down in a bucket of
"Oh-h-h-h!" Sadie wept hysterically,
clinging to young Slmms. He put his
arm around her protectingly and Jam
rand it atralnst a nail point that was
projecting through one of tho uprights j
in tho wall. )
"Woo-o-of!" roared Slmms, clasping
his wound. I
Somewhere In tho distance of tho
basement thoro was a strangled but
demoniac laugh that sounded as
though emanating from a rod-headed
boy with n wido mouth.
"Let him go," said young Slmms as
ho put his arm around Sadie again.
"Somehow I don't seem to mind him
now do you, Sadlo?"
"Let's help Mr. Leigh get that var
nish off him," said Sadlo with very
pink, cheeks. Sho did not move away
from tho arm. "Anyhow, ma's taken
