W Burgee* I For a long mtnute Danny and Naany Meadow Mouse stared out at the auaay place among the bushes beside the fence where Mr. Black snake lay sunning himself. It had been a narrow escape, i very nar row escape Indeed It had been such n narrow escape that Denny *as still trembling so that his funny lit tie short tall shook. You know he had almost run right into Mr. Black snake. It was lucky, very luck), for Danny that Mr. Blarksnake was • sleep at the time. Danny could hardly believe even now that Mr Rlackanake hadn't heard him as he scampered back so suddenly that he knocked Naany Meadow Mouse over But Mr. Blarksnake hadn't, and as soon ss runny and Nsnny were rure of this they began to breathe easier Then they stopped shaking. “What shall we do?” whispered Nanny “Get away from here ss fast ss our legs will take us.” Danny whia pered bar k "Shall it go the way we hare com#*'' asked Nsnny "No.” replied Danny promptly "We are going home to the Green Meadows in «plte of Mr. Black snaks aad every other danger that ever was or ever will be Now you follow me and mind that you keep right at my heels." Nanny promised that she would, and Danny led the way out into the open in order to go around Mr Riarkanake He took good care, did Danny, to go a long way around, for he is much afraid of Mr Black snake 9 and he Intended tr take no chance that Mr. Blarksnake might wake up and see them. Perhaps this was the wisest thing to do. hut it was also a dangerous thing to do. You se*. It meant leaving the safe cover of the bushes and grass along the fence and going right out where there was Nothing at all to hide them. They had safely passed the place whera Mr. Blarksnake lay and were beading back toward the fence again when Danny caught sight of a shadow sweeping across the ground Now a shadow wouldn't frighten you or ma. but Danny's bean jumped tight up In bla throat at sight of that shadow He didn't have to look up La the air to know who made that shadow Danny knows the shadow of every one who flies over the Green Meadows and of every one who walks there He has made tt bin busineas to know shadows and all about tbsm “Rad tail the Havt!" squeaked Danny.

But if he hadn't caught her what eould have become of her? She must have reached the shelter of tbo buahea and graaa along th*' fence at a different point from where bo bad Thinking she m,gh f be somewhere a heed of him.

Itanny darted strmgni ahead for the fence-row as fast as hlx >hort legs could be made to go Nan n> darted off to one side, dodged and crept under some old cornstalks she had seen Redtail hesitated ust s wee second undecided which ont to try to catch That one wee second gave Danny Just time enough to reach the bushes along the fence and Red’all's great claws closed on nothing, tho the tip of on*- actually scratched Danny. With a scream of disappointment Redtail swung up into the air on his broad wtngs and there he sailed in circles watching below He had seen where Nanny had gone and he hoped to get her when she should venture out. Now Danny hadn't seen where Nanny had gone and Nanny hadn't seen Just hat happened to Danny. She had to stay a long time under those cornstalks before Red’ai! finally gave up and she could safely get across to the fence-row When she got there she could And no sign of Danny You see he had run some distance both ways along the fence row looking for Nsnny and then dw tided that she must hare gone on ahead thinking that she was behind him. So at last he had hurried on hoping to catch up And ail the time he kept saying over and over: “Nanny's loet. Poor Nsnny. She never can find her way alone. What will she do without me?” And right at that very time Nan ny was hunting Danny and saying over and over to herself: "Danny's lost I know he is. Perhaps I’ll never, never see him again He's lost! I know he's lost'” _ *• **t hate Redtail!* h« broke out flerealy. I hat* him!* and found no trace of her b* Just had to mako up hla mind that Nan ny was lotL It was a dreadful situation.

But Danny had great confidence in himself, and self-eon (Idence is a splendid thing He felt absolutely sure that ha oowld take car* of himself, and Nanny, too And now before he was half way home Nanny was lost “If she hasn't been caught by somebody already she surely will fce.” moaned Danny. “And It's all my fault. I ought never to have taken her away from the safety of that bam. What does she know about the dangers of the Great World* If Redtail the Hawk hasn't get her Reddy or Granny Fox or Old Man Coyote will get her. Bhe doesn't know how to take care of herself.

He kept thinking of all the terrible things that might have happened to Nanny Meadow Mouse It never once entered Danny's funny little head that Nanny was anything but helpless He thought of her Just as If she were one of his babies, with no knowledge of the Great World, when the truth was that Nanny was quite as smart as Danny and a lot more careful.

This war has been declared in the name of liberty and democracy. Let us not undermine our own liberty and democracy by adopting CONSCRIPTION! The volunteer system is the only just, democratic, and effective means of raising an army. Congress is considering a bill to draft an army of one million youths, between 19 and 25 years of age, presumably for service in Europe with the Allies. Compulsory military service is unjustified: It conscripts conscience. It forces a man to kill against his will. It makes adherence to personal religious con viction a penal offense. Those who refuse to serve are subject to court-martial and imprisonment. True patriotism demands a united country. This principle will not unite the country in carrying on the war; it will divide it. Conscripted men may fight for territory, but only free men can fight for ideals. Canada, with a population less than New York State, has raised 400,000 without conscription; Australia, with a population less than Illinois, 250,000 without it, and recent! y defeated conscription for over seas duty by an overwhelm* ing vote of the people. Even Germany has never conscripted men for over seas military service. Lieut.-Gen. Nelson A. Miles and other military authorities oppose conscription as unnecessary and ineffective. Vol unteering is our American tradition. V olunteering can be controlled and guided to build up an efficient army. Is our cause so weak that not enough men can be found to volunteer? We believe the great majority of the American people are opposed to conscription and in favor of the volunteer principle. If that is your conviction, HELP DEFEAT CONSCRIPTION NOW: 1. By writing or wiring your senators, congressmen and the President 2. By getting others to do so. 8. By getting organizations to take action. ACT NOW. KEEP UP YOUR PROTEST UNTIL CONGRESS DECIDES CUT THIS OUT AND This advertisement is paid for by the voluntary contributions of patriotic Americans who believe that patriotism demands the main tenance of our democratic institutions and individual liberties.
