The erowi bothered dour old grandpa
more than ever that year. They were
digging up all tin? corn.

"Yes, they il<?; I beard 'cm!" Perley
cried. "They got together In a regnlar

loud- 'Caw, raw, caw!' If tliat isn't

grandpa lilt upon n device. He came
In to breakfast one morning looking
quite satisfied and liappy.
"I've got Yui now." lie said.

"Or a circus tent." pot In Perley
gleefully. 11?? had been walking all
around the corn patch in a triumphant
procession of his own.
"I guess they'll laugh on the inside
Of their IDOUtha now':" he exulted.
But that noon, at dinner time. Perlej
came In out of the biasing sunlight
with his little red, moist face drawn
down lengthily. He waited till after
grandpa asked the Messing and tilled
all the plates. It was hard work to
"break It" to grandpa, but ? hen you
had a thing to do you bad better do it
before you began on your mashed po?

they had been burned to death.
After a long search he went a short
distance from tbe track covered by the

In It he found one ol the turtles down

Players stand In two or more lines,
one behind another, with the feet apart
In straddle fashion. At a Signal the
leaders of the lines etch slide an In?
dian club between the feet from the
front toward the rear of the lines. The
last one In each line, when ho receives
the club, runs with It to the front,
takes position at the head of the line
and starts It In his turn. The line wins
whose leader returns first to the front
If the club stops on Its way to the rear,
the player next whom it stops starts it
again. If the club Is allowed to skip
a player, It Is counted a foul and must
be returned to the playee skipped, who
then starts It This game can also be
played with a ball.

theological savants, the fragments arc
liages of a missing gospel which was
rejected ns uncnnonlcnl In the third
century, but widely accepted In tic
second. Tic papyrus dates from t!.''
fifth century, but the diameter of the
Qreeh words which are textually repro
doced proves thnt the original man?!
Hcrlpt belongs to the aecond century.
An Interesting feature Is the very close
connection apparently existing be
tween it nnd the login of Christ, tie
recovery of which three years ago cans
ed a sensation. It Is suggested that
both aie practically pages of the BIIW
manuscript \ lz, the version of the gos?
pel according to the Egyptians.
As the result of live years' work an
other line papyrus roil in n British mu?
seum has Just been published, it was
written between 70 and 80 A. I>. and i-<
a collection of folk legends current la
Egypt at that time. The hero of the
fitorles Is Sloslrls, son of Khiimua--.
priest of Memphis. Many of the pa
sages suggest that It Is an adaptation
of the story of Christ as told by hi-<
disciples, und, If so, It Is certainly the
earliest record known, being less thin
20 years after the Introduction of Cbris
tiinlty into Egypt b| St. Mark in m
A. I). Sloslrls was a miraculous child.
Ills mother's name was revealed to his
father In n dream, In which these
words were spoken to him: "His name
shall be Sloslrls. for he shall do many
marvels In Egypt"
He is described as being gnat, big
and strong. II'- sreul to school, rivaled
the scribe who taught and began to
talk to the scribes In the house of life.
All tho land wondered a' him, saying,
"Behold the boy who reached 12 ye.ns
of nt'e and there was no scribe In
Memphis who could equal him In read?
ing, writing and magic:"
Sloslrls takes his father to hades,
where the cycles In the land of death
are described. Here aleo are many
stories of Jewish Christian origin for
example, tin- story of the rich man and
I.a/arus. The doctrine of future pun
lahmest, m>t found In Egyptian rituals.
Is here clearly "rated. I.atei Is an a.
count of n contest between B!< -iris and
the magicians of Ethiopia, which is
strangely reminiscent of the tt<
Moeea, '?ne magician says, "i'ast my
s-x-ll opon Egypt and cause the people
? three days and nights without
seeing light." Another adds. "As a
sign thy water shall be the color of
blood, the lliMid shall turn color, and
heaven shall be the color of blood."

A "muskrnt supper" Is the latest gas
tronomlc Innovation at the University
club, famed for sucb wrinkles, says the
Haltlmore Sun. Periodically an Inform?
al sapper Is held nt the club at which
one or more culinary curiosities form
the chief articles of diet and the other
night the muskrat occupied the place
of honor nt such a supper.
The lowly muskrnt ns an article of
diet was suggested by Professor Tow
hatan Clarke, but It was noted that
some urgent business prevented his at
tendance nt the banquet. Nevertheless
under the skillful manipulation of the
club steward, John A. Biddle, the
muskrat was declared by those ?
to be a most toothsome delicacy, al?
most If not QJUlte equal to Maryland's
famous bird, the diamond back terra
pin, nnd much superior to the swifter,
not to say more beautiful, rabbit.
The festive board was ornamented
with whole muskrnts enveloped In hard
aspic Jelly, with tall rampant, with Bab
In mouth and wltb tusk and whiskers
In plain view. As a spur to the appe?
tite they were declared a success.
Steward Blddle had the famous animal
prepared In three styles, the Maryland
or Eastern Shore style, In which he is
stewed In his own gravy; the V:rginln
style, split and broiled whole, like a
chicken, and the New Jersey style, In
which be Is roasted whole.

An article In the otllclal Belcbain

twentieth part of the meat required in

of lard and tallow per head have he. n

In use In Union lodge at Greenwich In
