"It Isn't a little town, It's a big country, and In fact It's more than that." "Gracious," said the Grizzly. "That's a lot for it to be." "Tes, it's a continent, I believe. Any way, it's made up of lots of countries." "Something like a family," said the Grizzly. "Now I am puzzled," said the brown bear.

And though I look like a pear of this con tinent, I am not. "But I like it so well here that I ask to have beautiful cubs come to enjoy It, too. I've had several hand some sets of children." "You speak as though you were talking of China and that when one set broke you got another," said the Grizzly. "Not at all." said Mrs. Brown Bear, "I mean that I have had several dif ferent sets of children but not because one of the sets or two of the sets broke or because the children broke, Such a thing didn't happen. "No, Indeed, It didn't happen. But I like It here so much that I like to have the little onss enjoy it, too. If I didn't like It I wouldn't welcome them here, for I care for little bear cubs and wouldn't have them anywhere If it wasn't nice." "I see," said the Grizzly.

I pray you what is asleep? Tile lily pads, and riffles and the reeds; No longer inward do the waters creep. No longer outwardly their force recedes. The windowed Night, In blackness wids and deep, Resumes ber weeds. I pray you, what's awake? A host of stars, the long, long milky way That stretches out, a glistening silver flake. All Rlorlous beneath the moon's cold ray, And myriad reflections on the lake Where star-gleams lay. I pray you, what's astir? Why, naught but rustling leaves, dry, sere and brown; The East's broad gates are yet a dusky blur. I And star-gems twinkle In fair Luna's crown, And minor chords of walling winds that were Die slowly down. I pray you what's o'clock? Nay, who shall answer that but gray- stoled dawn?
