FIVE DREAMLAND ADVENTURES The Slumber Sprites By DADDY Copyright 1021. by Public Ter Co. Jack and Janet go with Sleepy Woodchuck to find where he goes when he goes to sleep. They become Slumber Sprites, and he takes them aboard a steamship bound for Egypt. The kindly Capta'n of the ship has befriended two little ragged orphans The ship is overrun with rats, and Jack and Janet try to scare them off by telling tales of shipwreck. CHAPTER VI The Rats Say Farewell JACK'S plan for Hearing the rats off the steamship was working finely, lie and Janet and Sleepy Woodchuck and Chip and Chipper Chipmuck had told such scary tales about ships being lost at sea they had the rats in a panic. The rat's wanted to got ashore Just, as fast as they could. The steamship drew up to a land ing at the mouth of the river the last stopping place before reaching Egypt on the other side of the ocean. The Bailors threw ropes over posts on the desk, the screw churned the The sailors were astonished when they saw the rats rushing off the ship water, and the steamer came to rest. My, but there was squealing and a scrambling then! The rats swarmed on deck and poured overboard like water out of a dispan. "Let us off! Let us offi!" squealed the rats. "We don't want to be lost at sea." The sailors were astonished when they saw the rats rushing off the ship The kindly Captain was delighted. "Hurrah!" he cried. "Now we will have enough food so my two orphans and my crew can grow fat and happy.

We consider this as an indica tion that such service has been satisfactory. If you are looking fi an investment service drop a line to the i Locks and bonds department. So to serve that we may continue to serve. With the rats gone we will not need more supplies and can sail straight for Egypt." "Hurrah!" cried the cook. And "Hurrah!" cried some of the sailors. But the oldest sailor slowly wagged his head. "It Is a bad sign when the rats leave a ship," he muttered. "It means the ship is going to sink." "Nonsense!" cried the captain. But the other sailors began to wag their heads, too. "It is true," they said. "When rats leave a ship it is hecause the ship is going to sink. We will not sail until the rats come back." Jack and Janet looked at each other in dismay. Here was something they hadn't expected. Their plan had worked too well. It had gotten rid of the rats, but. it had scared the sailors, too. Jack thought fast. The only way to remedy things was to get the rats back. So Jack jumped upon the ship's rail and looked down upon the lats scampering back and forth upon the dock. "Ha! Ha! Ha! There is nothing the matter with this ship," he cried. "We told you those scary shipwreck stories just to drive you off so there would be more food for the sailors and the two orphans Ha! Ha! Ha!" The rats, stopped their scampering The wise old rat blinked up at Jack. "I was sure there was nothing the matter with this ship," he squeaked. "It will take us safely to Egypt. We can get back on as quickly as we got off." With that the wise old rat ran up a rope and jumped on the ship. Half a dozen other rats followed him. But the minute the rats began to return on board the sailors got over their scare. They picked up clubs and beat the rats back. "Throw off the ropes. We will sail before the rats can get back," cried the captain And so the sailors did. The ship moved away from the dock so quick ly that hundreds of rats fell into the water. Only the wise old rat and a few others got safely on board, and they sailed away rejoicing. "I think good fairies must have driven those rats from the ship," cried the ragged little orphan hoy. "Yes, and I think a good fairy brought back those few so the sailors wouldn't be scared," said the ragged little orphan girl. But Jack and Janet just laughed at each other, and turned with Sleepy Woodchuck, Chip and Chipper Chip muck, Colonel Croaker and Black Snake, to look out over the sea across which they were sailing to Egypt. . 1 I The Daily Fun Hour jg i8 (Next week will be told the queer adventure they have in Egypt.) ll- A T El E N JiiiERE O DO YOU KNOW WHO are the former Presidents f the United States who still are alive?

In the Isle of Skye version, the players Join hands and do a skip-dance three times around In a circle, singing. Here we go round a-jing-a-ring, Jing-a-ring, jing-a-ring, Here we go round a-jing-a-ring, Around the merrv Matnnsv. Three times around, and then we fall, Jing-a-ring, etc. At the word "fall," all stoop down and rise again. The last one up be comes Matansy, is blindfolded and led to the center of the circle. Then the others dance around again, sing ing. Blindfolded Matansy, dinna catch me! Blindfolded Matansy, canna catch me! Matansy then tries to catch one of the circling dancers and, if success ful, the captive must become Matansy in turn, is blindfolded and takes the center, while the other joins the cir cle. It is not permitted to break the circle (unclasp hands) in order to evade capture. As played in Inverness, Matansy goes to the center after the word "fall" Then the others dance around and sing repetition verses, of which the first lines are: 1. Choose your maidens all around; 2. High gates till the bride comes in, each verse ending "Around the merry Matansy." At the end of verse one, Matansy chooses a partner; at the end of verse two, all raise hands high while Matansy and partner dance in and out all round, blindfolding the other players, after which the two return to the center and the blindfold play ers try to catch them. The first two captors become Matansys. IU1AILE BUTTER 2 uu ,l.iuo v ruunu You'll enjoy its fresh and delicious flavor.

T. H. No Color Maims""' J Color management simply r.ielins i arranging colors by iheii position and proportion ro that wo seouie har mony. And harmony means agree-! mcnt I Now harmony in t.I.e arrangement of colors is obtained, first by contrast and, second, by analogy or likeness, Harmony by contrast means using , two colors that have nothing at all ' In common, such as blue with red, ' yellow, or orange, or yellow, with, red, blue, or violet; or red, with1 yellow, blue, or green. As a rule, It is safe to say use only a very little of the more brilliant contrasting color as a spice or accent to enliven the greater quantity of the less brilliant i color. Harmony by analogy or likeness allows a broader range of choice, al though in many cases it is not pos sible to secure the same emphatic degree of brilliance as we get through harmony by contrast. Harmony by analogy means that two colors com posing such a harmony contain more or less of some one element common ; to both. For example, we may have an harmony by analogy or likeness where the colors yellow, green and blue are involved. There is enough in common between green and blue go that they agree. JAMES M.
