"I find I have to go on a little southern journey," she said. "Something about our winter home, mother?" asked Jimmy. "Exactly that," replied Mrs. South brcczc, "but I'm not ready to take you with me yet this is just a little exploring trip. I'll not be gone more than two or three days. You make yourself busy and happy here in the garden till I return." "All right, Mother," answered Jim my, "and I'll watch for you every evening." And Mrs. South-breeze blew away toward the Southland. "Now I wonder what I'm going to do nrst, said jimmy to Himself; "it feels very queer to be alolic in the garden." "You're not alone," whispered a quiet little voice, "I'll stay and keep you company if you like.'1 "Indeed I do like!" replied Jimmy, warmly, "but if you please, who are you?" A gay little laugh was his only an swer. "Susy West-breeze!" exclaimed Jimmy, half-provoked, "do you, mean to say that was you talking so sweet ly and softly! The last time I saw you you were ranting around the garden in a regular hurricane 1" Susy laughed softly. "Yes, indeed, this is your very same cousin. You never can tell about us West-breezes! Sometimes we rage and sometimes wc smile! But I feel in a very nice humor just now. Don't you want to play?" And Susy smiled and sang so enticingly that of course Jimmy wanted to play with her who wouldn't? I guess she forgot!" Now who could that be? Jimmy and Susy looked all around the garden. It was the big old sun flower back by the alley fence! "Indeed wc will help you," replied the breezes, "but how can we get the seeds?" "Just shake me real hard and they'll fall right out into your arms," said the sunflower. Jimmy and Susy laughed, and then shook that old sunflower till the brown seeds rattled out! All over the garden, the alley and the lawn they scattered those seeds so thoroughly that next summer the garden looked like a sunflower patch. So interested were Susy and Jimmy in their seed scattering that they for got about playing and worked all the time till Mrs. bouth-breezc came back and told them they were two extra fine children I Copyright, 1014, by Clara Ingram Judaon. BLACKBIRDS AT ARDMORE "Susy. West-Brcczc!" exclaimed Jimmy, half-provoked. "All right," he said, "mother has gone away and I have two whole days to do just as I please with." "What do you want to do first?" "Please, before you start playing, won't you help me scatter my seeds? Your mother promised her help, but Public School Made Resting Place by Hundreds of Them. Ardmoro has been suffering from n plaKua of blackbirds. Hundreds of the birds have settled, for a time. In ri,u vicinity of School lano and Ardmoro avo- 1 nue, Where a larRo public Rchool m located. They caused considerable dam age, ana residents finally appealed to the police for the right to shoot them. Captain of Police Donaghy said that would be against the game laws. So he sent Charles Hall, Janitor of tho Station house, to the place. Hall and John Struthors, Janitor of the school, cllmboi to the school house roof and tried to frighten the birds off by firing blanks from shotguns. Soon a flood of tele phone messages were coming to Captain Donnghy from residents of tho neigh borhood, complaining that two colored men wero shooting blackbirds. By MALCOLM S. JOHNSTON 'HE evening comes, the day is done, I have my little nightgown on. Before my mother turns the light And kisses me the last good night, I kneel beside my cribby bed And fold my hands and bow my head ; And while her fingers smooth my hair, She teaches me to say this prayer: Dear God, I thank Thee for this day, And health and strength so I might play; For light and love and pleasant food, And for the times that I've been good. 11 &- ! m Q Bf XyA .z III Ijm sorry for all deeds ill done; I'm sorry for them, one by one; Dear Father, may Thine angels bright Keep me from evil day and night. When on my pillows I shall sink, Of Jesus, Thy dear Son, I'll think; For on His strong, His gentle arm, No child of Thine can come to harm. May parents, relatives and friends All know Thy love which far ex tends, By day and night, asleep, awake, To bless and help, for Jesus' sake. Amen, COrMIQIlTEO 10H Bt JULCOLM I.
