He bad been so sure that that house of I’nc' Billy Possum’s was going to t* bis bouse that It upset him a whole lot to find that be bad been mistaken and that he bad got to look some where else for a house. It made him angry. Disappointment la very apt to lead to anger 80 Bobby Coon «as angry. He thought be was an fry with Unc’ Billy Poesura. but really he was angry with himself for being so stupid as to forget all about old Mrs. Possum If he bad remem hered her in the first place he wouldn't have dreamed of trying to take that house for himself Two against one was one too many. But Bobby didn't let bit anger show As he looked up at the sharp faces of Unc’ Billy and old Mrs Pos sum grinning down at him he grin ned back and was full of apologies, pretending that his coming there waa all a mistake He begged to he excused, saying that be had got the wrong house "To* cert'nly have," snapped old Mrs Poesum "Must be that yo' haven't wholly waked up from your winter sleep to make such a mistake as this, Mi si ah Coon Don't do It again, because reckon It might lead to a Hi’ unpleasantness, and we-wns don't want anything Uks that to happen ’ y Bobby said that that was tbl‘ last thing In th# world that bs wanted and kept on apologising as he back ed down the tree He kept saying over and over that tt was all a mis take. a very great mistake, but he didn't let on that the real mistake was forgetting about old Mrs. Pos •urn "What to' yo’ looking for anew house. Brer Coon**’ asked UnC Billy as Bobby reached the ground. "Ah thought yo' had a very comfortable home in the big hollow chestnut tree." "So I did. So ! did," replied Bob by "I guess you must have over slept this spring If you don’t know wbat has been going on. Unc’ Billy Fanner Brown baa cut that tree down I hope he won’t take It Into his head to do the same th'ng as to yours ** With this Bobby started off chuckling to himself. You see. he knew that that last remark would be very likely to set Unc’ Billy and old Mrs Possum to worrying, and It gave htm a feeling of getting even with them, a feeling for which he had no real cause, is you and I know.

"Is have Imported goods examined as quickly and as efficiently as po» ntble. ao that the Importer wUJ not suffer delay in receiving bis goods, and so that the government will get its full duty." The war has cut down the amount of Imported materials by more than $1,000,000 a year, because Imports from Germany and Austria ' have been cu‘ off.
