HEN Peter Rabbit returned to
the dear Old Brier Patch he
could think of nothing but his new ac
quaintance, Short-Tall the Shrew.
This was quite like Peter, Anything
new arouses his curiosity so that he
can think of nothing else. He would
have liked nothing better than to gos
sip with some of his neighbors about
Short-Tall and his affairs, but to do
this he would have to admit that he
knew little or nothing about Short
Tall, and this he couldn't bring him
self to do. You see Peter felt very,
very foolish every time he thought of
how Short-Tall had been one of his

neighbors for so long and all the time
had been mistaken by him for a mem
ber of the Mole family.
So Peter said nothing to anyone,
not even to little Mrs. Peter, but re
solved to make up for lost time. The
very first chance he got he slipped
over to the old log where he had met
Short-Tall. He Intended to make a
call. Now Peter couldn't see under
the old log, so he couldn't tell whether
Short-Tall was there or not. He called
but got no answer. He thumped with
his feet. Finally he thumped right on
top of the old log itself, and then
looked quickly to see If anyone ran
t. No one did. It was quite plain
at Short-Tall wasn't there.
Then Peter remembered what Short-
Increases Wa^es and Adopts
Forty-Hour Week
For Plant
Officials of the the Hamilton Coke
and Iron Company, last Friday an
nounced a 15 per cent increase in
wages, effective as of July 15, and
the adoption of the forty-hour week
for the workers in the plant. The
reduction of working hours will mean
additional employment of 40 to 50
Under the new plan, while the
wage increase is 15 per cent, it means
that some of the lower branches of
pay, laborers, etc., will receive in
creases as high as 23 per cent. The
company's pay roll will increase 18
per cent.
This wage boost will effect 300 per
sons now employed by the Hamilton
Coke and Iron Company, as well as
the 40 or 50 who will be added to the
payroll. The forty-hour week will not
affect foremen and those in managei
ial and superintendence work. All in
these classes, however, will receive
the increas in salary.
The action of the company, the off!
cials announce, is in line with its
plan to take part in the great nation
wide business recovery plan.
The inhabitants of New Haven
Scotland, a little fishing town, are
of Scandinavian descent.
Tall had said about his private little
paths, and jumping down from the
old log he began to look for them.
Now It didn't take Peter long to find
a little path, for there was one leading
right away from one end of the old
log. It wasn't much of a path. Of
course such a little fellow as Short
Tall wouldn't make much of a path.
It was very much like one of the pri
vate little "paths of Whltefoot the
Wood Mouse. In fact Peter would
have supposed that this was just what
It was, had It not been for what Short
Tall had said. It was only about half
an Inch wide.
"He told me to follow his path and
we might meet," said Peter to him
self, there being no one else to talk to.
So he started to follow the little path.
Presently he came to another little
path, and where the two little paths
Joined Peter sat down and scratched
his head In a puzzled way. "Now
how am I to know which way to go?
he muttered. Finally he decided to stick
to the one he had started on. Half a
dozen jumps brought him to where
this little path branched. Peter was
stuck again. Finally he chose one of
the branches and started on, only to
have this branch lose Itself In a whole
lot of little paths, which crossed and
recrossed and were seemingly all
mixed up. Just looking at them made
Peter dizzy.
"I'm not going a step farther," de
clared Peter. "What Is the use? I don't
know which path to follow and if
did, It would merely lead Into an
other little path and I wouldn't get
anywhere." A sudden thought struck
Peter and caused him to sit up with
a funny look on his face "I wonder,"
said he slowly, "I wonder If Short
Tall was simply planning to have fun
with me, when he told me to follow
one of his little paths and perhaps we
would meet. Anyway, I've tried to
make a call, and that I couldn't is no
fault of mine. Now I think I'll go
home. My gracious! What a lot of
mlxed-up paths! Short-Tall must do
an awful amount of running about.'
"I have to," snapped a sharp squeaky
voice. "I'd starve if I didn't."
Peter looked behind. There was
Short-Tail, darting along one of his
little paths.
"Walt a minute!" cried Peter. But
Short-Tall had vanished.

The Butler County Agricultural
Society has decided to prohibit pari
mutuel race betting at the Butler
County Fair. The decision of the
directors was made informally at the
annual picnic of the directors, and O.
Barnhouse, superintendent, and
their families, held at the fairgrounds
with instructions to the secretary to
place the same on the minutes later.
The matter of allowing betting was
given much thought by the directors
before concluding that such betting
would not be compatible with the
present standards of the fair, in which
the 4-H Club members, of high school
age, take a prominent part.
