LOUISE H. GUYOL i
"Quick! Quock! 'Coni quickly." Pat,
tiptoeing from the rose-bed, called in a
loud whisper and beckokned to his
brothers and his sister.
Nat -flew across the lawn, followed
by 1ill and 'PI1.'
"Sh-sh-sh," Pat warned as the chil
dren drew near and he led them, again
on .ti:toe, toward the rQse-bed and
signed to them to kneel at its edge.
It was a cloudy day, soft and gray,
but not raining. The low branches of
a big rosebush made a shadow of dark
er gray and In that shadow sat a fat,
-Across his shoulders was a spot of
very bright green, but all around his
forelegs was what looked like a heavy
gray material, all wrink'led up.
"How funny--" Nat started to whis
per, but Pat put a finger oii his lips
and signed to him to watch loppy-the
Hoppy -put his right foot in his mouth
and lie tugged and lie pulled and hei
pulled and he tugged, and off came all
of the wrinkled old gray material that
was around his right foreleag. Then
le put his left foot In his mouth and
lie tugged and lie ipulled and lie pulled
and lie tugged, and off came all the
wrinkled old gray material that was
around his left foreleg.
And there was loppy, all dressed ill)
In a brand-new suit of clothes.
iNow what do you suppose Hoppy
the-Toad (lid with his old clothes? He
didn't have them .lying around so that
his poor, tired mother 'would come
along, by-and-by, and have to say, "0,
I am so tired of picking up after that
child." But there was no closet un
der the rose bush, nor any nice little
tacks on the garden wall, nor even a
little clothes-hamper where lie could
throw his cast-off coat and trousers.
So, what do you s'pose he did
He ate 'em up!
'Yes, sir. That's what the toad al
ways does. And Nat and Pat and Bill
nd Li1, who live in the HIlajppy House
and play in the Gay Garden that str
rounds it, sa whim do it. And so can
you, on any nice, coollf:h, grayish day,
just before It rains, or early any ev
ening, when the sun goes down.
"Itsn't he beautiful " whispered pat.
All the other children nodded, and
floppy-the-Toad admired himself, first
over his left shoulder and then over
his right. 'He, too, thought himself
quito beautiful in his nice new coat
and trousers, and so lie winked his
heavy eyes at the four nice children
and this is what he seemed to say to
"Now! I'd .best get busy and work
for you nice children, who never hurt
me, nor any of my kinl-folks. And so
I'll go help you ill your garden, be
cause if I didn't hllp you, you kn11ow,l
you would never have any vegetables
nor flowers, nor plants of any kind."
And away lie hopped, to work for
Pat and Nat and Bill and %Li, 'because
thley were so good to him.
Hloppy wyill help yeou, too, if you will
let .hii, and this is the way thlat lhe
wvill do it:
There are a great many insects that
are not good for gardens. 'rhey eat
our young, green leaves; they cut our
bab~y ivlanits down at the base; they lag
eggs by the hlundreds in the buds ;be
fore they came .to flower4 And these
eggs hatch out and the young grub that
conmes from the egg eats his way from
the inside to the outside of our vege
tables and our friut and our rose-bios
You may work In youri gardenl till
your back seems 'broken and your
hands are iblistered, and you can't
catch all these insects.
That's his 'business.
Watch him seome day, wvhen the sun
is not too bright, or watch him, as did
the children of the GIappy Hlouse, u~n
der' the shadow of low-hanging bhushes
on soft, gray days.
See him there, never winking, never
blinking, novelr moving., Suddenly the
tiny .fingers resting oni the gr'oud, will
quiver .like lightning aiid then the lit

to sec'atchi very fast andl very furious

laugh, for that might startioefloppy,
and wvhien lie makes those little ges
tures it always 'nimeans that lie has
seen a bug.
Then, suddenly his mouth opens and
out conmes his tongue, anid in it goes
again, and Hloppy is swallowving hlard(,
4efore you've even haid time to see the
