ring at the right time and wake me up mornings,'' said Uncle Wiggily.
He took out some wheels and springs. He took the hands of
the clock down from in front of its face. "1 hope Uncle Wiggily
doesn't pinch his paw," whispered Susie. "Hush!" cautioned Nunc
Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy.
All of a sudden, after Uncle Wiggilv rot his paw loose from the
buzzer part of the alarm clock he was nxTng, there was a snapping,
cracking sound and the old rabbit gentleman gave a loud cry. "On,
what is the matter now?" exclaimed Nurse Jane, running out again.
Well, you can see what happened. The big, strong sprihf qt the
clock became loose and caught Uncle WiggHy in its coils. "Oh, this
is terrible!" cried the bunny, as he spun around like a top. "I'll never
try to mend an alarm clock again!"

Nurse Jane. "Whatever tn the world has happened?" Mr. Longears
twinkled his pink nose. just dropped some jaf the clock wheel*,

to rest, and fanned his pink twinkling note, with his tall, silk black
hat. "Do you want the pieces of the clock, Uncle Wiggily?" asked
Jackie. "No, I do not," answered the bunny. "You and Peetie may
have them; but what good are they?" The two puppies b&rkad
