learned from hla picture-books
ibsvt an man war ao covered, while
motakeye and apaa and every other living
thing went naked.
Clothea, therefore, must be truly a
bade of greatness, the Insignia Of the
superiority of man over all other ani
mals; for surely there could be no other
reason for wearing the hideous thing.
Mvny moons aco, when he rnd been

or Sheets, the leopard, to oover hla

Now tm waa proud of hi lek akin,

no sound save the deep and awesome
moaning of the wlim.
Then, suddenly, the Jungle giants
whipped back, laghlng their mighty tope

and blinding light ftaahed from the
