The noor do_. who was lying Btretcbed out in tbe mm not far off. heard all thm ?af eaid, and It made Vilm f.'hI t?. kr,"w that the mr,r".? would he his last day. Now. 8ultan had a good friend, h wolf. bo '.n the evening he Hllpped out Into the forest to vi.it him, and oaaaplalaad lo him af the Cata whlch awattad him. "Liaton. gossip," said the wolf. "take courage. 1 aill help >ou out "f jrour trouhie.

Instead of that, ydu wil! be in full favor. and nothiruj wlll ever cause them to glve you up." The dog followed this advjee. and. ae It had been planned, so It waa accom pllshed. Tl a father erreamed as he saw the wolf run away wlth hl? chlld thiuugh the wood; bat when poor old Baltaa brought it back hla Joy and gratltude knew no bounds. He Btroked and pettgd the old dog, aaylng. "Nothlng shall ever htirt you now. you dear old dog. and you elial never want for food and fhtlter as long as you Uve." To hia Brlfa he aald, "lo home at once, wlfe, and COOh eome bread and milk for poor old Rultan. It Is soft, and will not rer-utre teeth to hlte It.

To the Editor of the Trlbune Junior I orun, lt glvea me Rieiit ple_?\ne to re.id aboot there being a possibillty of a Btanp (ollecting department appearlng in the columns of The Tribune Junior Forum. ae the atudy of phllately. or the collectlng of stampe. ia intenaely ta tereatlng ae well aa Inatructlve, and there ls ao much knowiedge to be de rived. auch as geography. rulerB, flaga. coats-of-armfl, denomlnatlons of moneya aplmalB. htstorical eventa and mimeroua other atudlea. If the young generation of the preaent day would collect atampB and mount them neatly ln albuma or blank booka thev would he eurpriscd ln a faw years time to flnd they hBd something of value There aie thouuands of atamp col lertors to-day. not only in thla country. but throughout the world. who have vaiuable collectlons started on a small scale. and being intereatfd so lntensely not only spent their odd change ln pro (urlng stamra but nW friend collectors and traded thelr dupltcatea or eold them for the purpose of procurlng other varletlea to enlarge their collectlons. You wlll often hear people laugh and eaj, ' What a hobby' What good are they?

That hae been often done. but not wlth stamps. Though there are many counterfeits on the market they can easlly be detec.ted, and any .*tamp dealer wlll be glad to advlse you when in doubt. lt ia not neceaaary to ha\e a lot of money to begin atamp collectlng. Ask your boy or glrl friends to aak thelr fathers and hrothers who go to buaineaa to get you some stamps K\ery offlce of baauaaaa raoaivai maii. and the en velopes bearing the atamps often flnd thelr way to the waste basket. It takea but a s-cond to tear off the rorner of th.- envelopa bearing the etamp, and they wlll gladly do lt for you.
