NrE upon a time, when Uncle Wig'
J gily Long ears, the bonny rabbit
gtntleman, was oat walking in the
woods near the Orange Ice Mountains,
he heard some one say:
"But Blllle. my dear little squirrel
noy, I really cannot let yon do it. rd
like to, but it would be a waste of
sugar and flour, and for something
you don't really need.""
Oh. but mother! I -want It
much '" said another voice fIf I can't
have it there won't be any fun! Oh,
dear'" and then came the sound as If
-ome one were scuffling off through
the dry leaves of the forest, dragging
their feet unpleasant like.
Hum suz dud!" exclaimed Uncle
Wijrgily to himself, as he took off his
iati shk nai ana scratched his pink,
twinkling nose with it. -It seems to
me there is going to be trouble, rd
netter see what I can do to help."
So he stepped out from behind a
mulberry bush, and saw Mrs. Bushy
tall, the squirrel lady, mother of John
nie and Blllle. And Mrs. Bushytail
was looking rather sad. and off
through the woods Uncle Wlggily
rould see BlUie scuffling away, kick
ing the leaves.
What's the matter?" asked the
bunny uncle of the squirrel lady.
Oh, Billle wints me to let him have

r.ushytaiL 'I told him that to s've

cream ana caKe and candy now, when
sugar is so scarce, and so much needed
by our soldiers, wouldn't be right."
"Neither It would," spoke the bunny,
"But of course. Blllle, being only a
little squirrel, can't see that." went on

Blllle happy some other way.
Tm afraid you can't, unless you
give him a party with good things to
eat. spoke Mrs Bushytail.
"Leave It to me." said Uncle "Wig'

Then he heurried off through the
woods until he came where Blllle. the
squirrel, was nibbling bark off.

'What's the matter, Blllle?" asked
"Oh! I want a party. -and I can
have It," answered the squirrel boy.
I don t see what harm having a little
bit of sugar and cake and Ice cream
Uncle Wlggily didn't say anything
lor a minute, Then he soxtly asked:
"If teri thousand little squirrel boys,
each had a party, and at each party
ten little boy animals ana ten little
girl animals each ate a piece of cake
and a dish of Ice cream, how much
would that be, uniier-
It was a pretty hard example, but
mule did It. by counting on his paws.
.it wouja oe zuu,ifui, ne saia.
'And 200.000 pieces of cake and 200.
000 dishes of ice cream would use up
enough sugar to help a whole army
of our fighting soldiers." said Uncle
Wlggily. "Now. Blllle, Til give you a
surprise. Tou come to my hallow
stump bungalow this afternoon and
see what happens.
"And may I bring my brother John
nie ana some or the animal boys and
gins, uncle Wlggily?"
Tes. bring as many as you wish,"
answered the bunny.
"Hurray!" chattered Blllle. Then he
scrambled off through the woods, and

hollow stump bunsalow. He and
