The Careless Young Deer.

?Light foot the l><N*r.
The Deer twins looked much alike.!
but really were quite different. One !
was a wee bit smaller than the other, i
and ever since they -were born she
had been most obedient, doing always
just what she was told to do and
never thinking of disobeying. But
the other was a bit headstrong, and
as he grew older he was more and
more inclined to think that he was
quite equal to looking: out of him
self. Secretly he thought his mother
very timid, but he admired his father.
Lightfoot. and tried to imitate him
in every way, and longed for the
time when his own head would be
crowned with antlers, which ar?. you
should know, what some folks wrong- j
ly call horns.
When their mother had warned the;
twins that now they were penned in
their yard by the deep snows they j
must always keep together for safety. '
this headstrong young Deer, who was
just about big enough to think he1
"ONE OF THESE DATS YOU WILL
GET LOST." SAID SHE.
knew all there was to know, turned
his head to hide a smile.
"Just as if we are not big enough
to take care of ourselves/' thought
he. "She's a regular fraidy. She
oan't scare me. I'm not afraid. Old
Man Coyote and Yowler the Bob Cat
couldn't catch us when we were lit
tle. so why should we be afraid of
them now? Besides, how can they get
around In this snow any better than
So this headstrong; young Deer Mil
inclined to be careless, to linger a
moment or two when the other* moved
ot. from one feeding place to another,
and to wander into Ride path*. More
than once his mother returned for
him and warned htm.
'One of these days you will get
! lost." said she. "Then you will wish
yon had minded."
To th/s tlie you ii? Deer made no,
reply, but to himself he said: "The)
idea of i?-eUlng lost right in our own i
yard! The very Idea! It is fitly to
mention such a thing."
So this headstrong young Deer cun
tinutd tc be r:ireless and heedless
and to worry his mother. Day aftsr
a;iy they moved about In their yard
of many paths and nothing happened
to frighten them. They neither t-?-?-l
nor saw nor smelled a single enemy.
But Dlghtfoot and Mrs. bightfoot
were not less watchful because of
this. They tested every Merry Dittle
lireeze that came their way. Their
ears were always open to catch every
little sound. It all seemed very use
less and even foolish to the twins,
especially to the one who felt that
he knew all there was to know,
j So It was that late one afternoon
' he lingered hehlnd for a bite or two
i more when the others had moved on.
He lingered longer than he Intended
to and when he started after them
he started in something of a hurry,
exnectlng to catch up with them in
a few hounds. Now. as you know, the
paths in a Deer yard cross and re
cross in every direction. This heed
less twin had not noticed that hta
father, with the others behind him,
had turned off on a cross path that
led to where many paths crossed, so
he bounded ahead until he came to
the end of that path.
Not finding the others there, he
turned and ran back to the cross
path and there turned in the wrong
dlreetlon. By the time he found out
thi9 mistake he began to be a little
frightened. Once more he turned
back and so came to the place where
many paths crossed, and by this lime
he was so frightened he forgot what
little he dtd know. He forgot to use
his nose, with which he might have
found the path which his father and
mother and slater had taken. He lost
his head, as the saying is, just as
many people older than he have done
when they have been lost, and ran
faster than ever, quite heedless of
the paths he turned, into, until at
last, when he stopped for breath, he
hadn> the least idea where he was
or of the way back to the place he
had started from. He was lost. He
was lost In his own yard.

Making the Home Attractive
BY DOROTHY ETHEL WALSH.
Correct Grouping of Fttniture.
To understand the needs of certain
articles of furniture is necessary to
the woman who would have her home
artistically furnished. For Instance,
the most attractive chair, table and
couch may be purchased for the liv
ing: room, but if they are placed un
wisely in the room the care given to
their selection has b??n nrpatlved.
To illustrate, the living- room is
U9ed primarily for visiting, and if
this fact is ignored when arranging'
the furniture an uncomfortable room
Is certain to be the result. If the
davenport is placed against one
wall and the easy chair in a corner
isolated from it. it stands to reason
that those sitting on the davenport
cannot well visit with the occupant
of the easy chair. Lack of mm in
the room ensues. Either the chair
must be carried near to the daven
port or talking across the room takes
How much better when the furni
ture Is arranged in "chatty" (roups:
Let the one arranging it visualise
occasions when several of the pieces
will be used simultaneously. That
will simplify the problem. It is really
BY sins. ELIZABETH KUT.
Marriage Is many )hing*. but,
whatever else It Is as society Is now
<4franized. It is partnership in the
business of housekeeping. Various
arrangements of the duties of hus
band and wife are possible in this
partnership, but the standard at
present for the average couple Is a
small home In which the woman
handles most of the expenditure,
either directly or through' charge ac
counts; she is ths spender. The man
Is generally the earner, and the ac
tual work of the house Is divided be
tween them, with such hired help as
they can afford. The heat, water and
?'Kht supply are often cared for and
paid for by the husband, also the
larger house repairs, tne care of the
m ounds and the rent or taxes. These
are house expenses and housework
which women are apt to underesti
mate in estimating, their contribu
tion to the whole. They are also the
aspects of his conduct by which many
a wife measures the success of her
partner from the practical side. A
man who does his share of these
things well does much to ease a
A workable family budget should
pay careful attention not only to the
regular, obvious outlays for rent or
taxes, fuel and service, but to re
pairs, alterations and labor of the
emergency or seasonal sort in house
and garden. People are very apt to
forget these details. That is one
reason why a budget should be made
out. not wholly on the basis of what
should be spent, but rather on what
has been spent for a number of years.
To spend money without plan or
record is Inevitably to waste money,
and It Is th& irregular, incidental ex
penditures. whether small or large,
that cause the greatest leakage and
upset the carefully planned budget

Boomers and Ramon Wanted. '
AT 2 o'clock on a bleak November
day Merriam Lindsay, looking
altogether adorable In a much
washed. fuxxy white tam and
sweater, stood looking dubiously at a
clothes basket stacked high with gayly
tied boxes of her own homemade fudge.
She was waiting for young Prof. Shel
don to arrive with a borrowed flivver,
in which they were to convey the fudge
to the boys' school in the next street.
She was having a bad case of state
flight. She paced up *nd down worry
ing. Suppose the principal of the
school wouldn't let lier piddle the
candy! . If was a very swanky school,
lie might not let her! Suppose the
boys didn't have as much pocket money

they didn't feel like fudge! She put In

But two hours later, when he brough'
her back, starry-eyed and pink-cheeked
her pockets literally full of nickels and
dimes and quarters, she waltMd hiir
ecstatically about ttie wee house
"Weren't the seniors dear!" (he babbled.
"And oh. Shelly, don't you love those
tow-h?aded twins? And weren't 'he
littlest ones dears? And wasn't Dr.
Leonard a darling to let me sell It! And
wasn't he perfectly dear to say 1 could
come every Friday!"
"Ahem! Am I the only one there who
wasn't a darling dear!"
"You 'bleasedest!" she apolopizeil. "I

grandly. "I didn't know earning money

Johii gets home! I don't think it
would be fair to count it till he comes,

"Well, I guess It would be all right."
Sheldon turned his head away. Under
his fun, the youthful professor was
rather a dreamer and Merry's valiant
spirit touched his heart. "We?er?
might count it and stack it "
"Let's " She dumped It In a noisy
heap on the kitchen table. "Shelly.
I've an idea. Couldn't I find some more

"Kvery other day. I'd say." Sheldon
was trying hard to be businesslike. "We

"Why, I'll be here every day." He
was casual, but the naughty twinkle
she liked was in his gray eyes. "Now

"What room?' she ejaculated. "What
are you talking about?"
"Tne sign In y?ur window." he an

arm to her own side porch. Propped
against the window was a mlcr<J?

Of course he isn't any happier,

children always could play in their
