Tommy Tit Brings a Message
BY THORNTON W. BURGESS.
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.
