No privilege la quite so dear At carrying a word of cheer. ?Tommy Tit. Tommy Tit the Chickadee was flit ting through the Green Forest to see what harm the great ice storm bad done and If ail his friends had come safely through. The Ice everywhere was very beautiful as it glistened in the sunshine, but Tommy had'no thought for the beauty of It. He could see nothing but the torn and broken trees, and it filled him with sadness, for Tommy Tit dearly loves the trees. No one does more than does this merry-hearted little feathered friend to ?car^ for the trses and keep them free from the insects and worms that would destroy them. So, as he saw how his friends, the trees, had suffered in the great ice storm. Tommy was filled with great sadne-s, and he was silent as he flit ted from tree to tree. This was most "DEE, DEE. DEE! TM OLAD TO SEE YOU. CHATTERER." unusual for Tommy Tit. for even on the dullest or coldest day Tommy ha* to tell everybody within hearing of the gladness In his heart. He seems to think that Old Mother Nature placed him in the Great World to carry a message of cheer and glad ness. and he always tries to do it. Presently his sharp little eyes spied Chatterer the Red Squirrel, sitting on an ice-covered log and looking as If he hadn't a friend in the world. At onoe Tommy found his tongue. "Dee, dee, dee! I'm glad to see you, Chatterer. I was afraid you might have been hurt in trfat dreadful storm,'' gaid he. Chatterer loked up, but in his eyes was only fear and something very like despair. Tommy Tit saw It at once. "What Is the matter, Chatterer? Are you hurt after all?" he asked, anxiously. Chatterer shook his head. Tommy flitted a little nearer and looked at Chatterer sharply with those bright little eyes of his. Never before had he seen Chatterer the Red Squirrel looking like this. There wasn't a particle of spirit in him. He looked? well, he looked hopeless. You know he was hopeless. "Dee, dee, dee. chickadee!" crfed Tommy Tit, cheerily. "This is dread ful, but it might have been worse. You might have been killed by a fall ing tree. Yes, indeed, it might have been much worse." "I might as well have been killed," replied Chatterer, "as to starve to death, and that is what is going to happen to me if this Ice doesn't melt quickly. I haven't a thing to eat and no way of getting anything." '."What's that?" Tommy Tit looked surprised and as if he were in doubt that he had understood. You see, he knew Chatterer's thrift. Then Chatterer told him everything. ?HlllllHilllllllllimillllHltt]lllllllllllllllllllllllfItllllllllllllll now nmi one nu taken ail the seeaa and acorns and ,nuts In hi* largest storehouse, and ' how all his' other storehouses were ao covered with loci that he oouldn't ret Into them, and how he couldn't climb the treea be cause of the ice. "I'll starve to death. That la what will happen to me," concluded Chat terer. ? "Dee. dee, dee. nonaenael" cried Tommy Tit, and his voice was merry. "I am surprised at you, Chatterer. Indeed I am. How came you to for get Farmer Brown's Boy? There la plenty of food for you and for every one else up In the Old Orchard. You are no worse off than a lot of others. I would starve myself, and a great deal more quickly than you. were it not for Farmer Brown's Boy. But he knows what a storm like this means to us. and the first thing he did this morning1 was to put out food for all who need It. It is there waiting for you now. Come on. Chatterer! Dee, dee, dee, come on!" Tommy started toward the Old Orchard. (Copyright, 1922, by T. W. Burgee*.) RIFLES TO BE SELECTED. Board of Army Officers Ordered to Meet Here.
