Jerry Goes With Paddy,
rES,” replied jerry Muskrat
•* \ / to Paddy the Beaver, "I
Y wish I had a tail like yours.
1 I’ve always been satisfied
with my own tail, but now
that I have seen yours, I realize that
my tail isn’t so much after all.”
Paddy chuckled. "No you don’t,”
•aid he
"Don’t what?” asked Jerry, looking
"Don't wish you had a tail like
mine,” replied Paddy. "You may
think you do, but you don't. You can
and do use your own tail in all the
ways for which you have any need.”
"But I can’t use my tail for a sup
port and I cai^t* sit on it. and I can’t
signal on the ground with it because
it does not make noise enough, and
you can do all those things with your
tail,” protested Jerry.
“And when would you ever want to
do any of those things?” demanded
Paddy. ‘‘I have to sit up to cut trees
and so need my tail for a prop and for
a rest, but you don’t cut trees and so
don't have to sit up as 1
do. I have to go some distance from
the water to do some of my work; so
does Mrs. Paddy; we need some way
of signaling. You don’t have any
such need, if we should exchange
tails I would have very little use for
yours because it is too small and the
wrong shape for me, although just
suited to you. You would have little
or no use for my tail because it is too
big and heavy and the wrong shape
for you. while just the right shape for
me. I long ago got over envying other
people what they have. It is a waste
of time and a foolish habit. Suppose
we go up to the upper pond and I’ll
■how you where I get my bark to eat.”
This suited Jerry and he followed
jpaaay. He naa to swim nis oest to
keep up. When they reached the
second dam Paddy led the way around
the end of it. Jerry found that this
pond was not quite as big as the other,
and the dam, being new. did not look
as solid as the old one. Paddy led the
way across this pond. On the farther
aide he waddled ashore and back some
distance to a little grove of poplar
trees. Jerry followed, but didn’t feel
easy so far from the water. Paddy
aat up beside a young poplar, using his
tall as a prop. Jerry wondered what
he was going to do. It didn't enter
Jerry’s head that Paddy intended to
cut that tree. It was too big for
Jerry even to dream of such a thing.
So you can imagine how surprised
Jerry was when Paddy opened his
mouth and drove his great front
cutting teeth into the trunk of that
tree and then pried out a big chip.
Jerry thought at first that Paddy had
cut that chip out to eat. but Paddy
paid no attention whatever to that
chip. Instead he cut out another.
"What are you doing that for?”
asked Jerry.
“Why, rm cutting down this tree,”
explained Paddy in some surprise at
the question.
“Do you mean that you think you
can cut down that big tree?” cried
Jerry in a tone of unbelief.
"Watch mef,” replied Paddy. “I not
only think I can; I know I can. I
have cut trees twice as big as this one.”
He drove in his teeth and pried out
another chip.
Meanwhile Jerry was growing more
and more uneasy. He didn’t like being
so far from the water. He didn’t want
to admit or show that he was afraid,
but he was. Paddy didn’t appear to
notice and went on with his work.
Presently from way over on the other
side of the pond there sounded a sharp
report. Instantly Paddy dropped to all
four feet and started for the water as
fast as he could go. Jerry, being
smaller and lighter, could run faster
and reached the pond first.
“What was that?” he panted as
Paddy slipped into the water.
"That was Mrs. Paddy signaling
danger,” replied Paddy. “It was just
a warning. You didn’t hear her
plunge after it. She has seen some
enemy and was letting me know. We
were not in any real danger, but we
might have been without that warning.
That is all.”

a single stem.
In May the trees are in bloom. The
flowers are in heads on very pliable
stems. The trees prefer rich bottom
lands along the edges of streams from
Maine to the northern shores of Lake
Ontario, west to Minnesota and Ne
braska, .south to Florida and Texas.
You will find them growing in our
city parks and along our sidewalks.
They reach heights of 75 and up to
150 feet, with strong trunks and sturdy
limbs. The bark on the trunks of old
trees is a deep reddish-brown, made up
of many scaly plates. But on all the
younger trees it is. smooth and grayish
green, varying to very light gray. The
reddish brown wood is light, hard and
strong. The top of the tree is a mottled
green in the Summer and the branches
are nearly white.
The buds are cone-shaped, with hood
like scales, and form beneath the hol
low bases of the leafstalks. The fallen
leaf reveals the bud in its Winter cloth
ing. The leaves grow alternately on
the twig, and are from 5 to 6 inches
long, sometimes 10 inches broad. They
are five-lobed and tooth-edged. In
Summer they are yellow green, with
furry stems. In Autumn they are yel
low and almost transparent.
In Summer when the tree is fully
clothed its scarred trunk is hidden.
When the leaves depart and the tree is1
bare you will see some of the bark
flakes scattered over Hie ground. It
makes the tree look as if it had leprosy.
At night it is a ghostly-looking tree, with
its dangling gray balls swinging from
crooked branches and shadows playing
on the white patches scattered over
the trunk of the tree.
Some folks have declared that the
fuzz on the baby leaves, just as they
were pushing their way out into the
sunlight, made them sneeze. It is only
for a short time, and soon the leaves
are out of their blanket and growing up.
The seed balls swing back and forth
until gradually the stems and sides of
the balls are worn through. Now the
many seeds are ready for their flight.
They were only waiting to be released.
Soon the pointed seeds with their own
parachutes are going through the air
on a spanking breeze. Many will per

Immortality. ,
Those who are unacquainted with
!he work of men of science sometimes
jet the notion that science is undoing
some of our cherished philosophies.
For example, many persons believe !
'through hearsay) that men of science
io not believe in immortality.
The point that most persons do not
jnderstand is *hat science is not
‘specially interested in immortality.
Wen of science are interested in
vorldly matters. They are busv find
ng out how best to get along in this
vorld. The fact that the majority of
nen of science have nothing to say
about another world should not be
regarded as a condemnation of
scientific men as such.
But there are scientists, and many
>f them, who believe in immortality.
For example, the majority of blolog
sts believe that the threads of life are
lever broken; that life keeps on being I
ife. This is called "immortality of the !
;erm plasm." It only means that all
living things die. They die p*son*Uy
They do live on in posterity, however.'
And sc the whole question of life
after death, as a philosophical question
turns upon the single question of how
and how long For science, life after
death is a social phenomenon which
history alrne may answer. For the
non-scientiflc. life after death is a
hope for personal continuance. As a
hope, it should never be abandoned.
