£ Bedtime Stories
i ——————
r I By THORNTON W. BURGESS.
A hunch Is just a thought that you
Ara certain In your mind ts true.
—Bobby Coon.
VV HUNCH is a feeling that some
thing is or isn’t so, a feeling that
tfdces possession of you even when
you have no knowledge of the facts In
the case. Little people of the Green
Forest often have hunches, and heed
ing them has saved many lives. Many
times has Reddy Fox had take pos
session of him a feeling that there was
danger Just ahead, although seeing
nothing and hearing nothing to give
him that feeling. As a result he has
abruptly changed his course and so
escaped a cunningly set trap. That
feeling is called a hunch.
It was a wholly different kind of a
hunch that Bobby Coon now had. It
wasn't a feeling that there was un
seen danger near. No, indeed. It was
a feeling that at last the time had
come for a feast to which eagerly he
looks forward every year. It comes
only at the time that com is in the
milk. That is the time when the corn
is big enough yet not ripe, the time
when each kernel is juicy with what
la called milk because it looks like
milk.
To Bobby came suddenly and very
strong this feeling that the com in
Farmer Brown's cornfield was at last
in the milk, in just the stage to make
a coon’s mouth water just thinking of
•■PERHAPS IT WOULD BE BETTER
TO WAIT FOR A DARK NIGHT,”
THOUGHT HE.
ft. Bobby hadn't been over to that
cornfield this year. It was too far
from the Green Forest and the protec
tion of the trees there to visit unless
there was some certainty of finding a
reward worth the risk. Now there
had swept over him without warning
the feeling that that com was ready
and waiting for him.
Bobby slipped away from Mrs. Bobby
and the children. Sure that none was
following him, he made his way to
the edge of the Green Forest. There
he paused. Moonlight made the Green
Meadows almost as light as by day.
To reach that cornfield he would have
to travel quite a distance right out in
the open, where any one coming that
way could hardly fail to see him. He
didn’t like it. He didn’t like it a bit.
“Perhaps it would be better to wait
for a dark night.” thought he. “No
one would see him then. Moonlight is
all right in the Green Forest, because
there are Black Shadows all about,
and it is easy to keep out of sight, but
out there on the Green Meadows there
Isn't one Black Shadow, not one.”
He lifted his head and tested a wan
dering Little Night Breeze that came
wandering from the direction of the
cornfield. It told him nothing. Sup
posing that com wasn't ready yet.
Supposing it wasn’t in the milk. He
didn't want it until it was. Perhaps
it would be better to wait. Bobby half
turned to go back. Then once more
over him swept that feeling of cer
tainty. It wasn’t to be resisted. He
looked in all directions, to make sure
that no enemy was near. Then he
started out across the Green Meadows,
straight toward the cornfield.
"Once I get there I will be all
right,” he said to himself. “I’ll be
out of sight of any one who may hap
pen along.”
A swiftly moving shadow caused
Bobby to look up. Hooty the Owl
swooped low over him, hovering there
an instant, staring down at Bobby, his
great round eyes glaring hungrily.
Bobby paused, drew back his lips,
Showing all his teeth, and growled.
Hooty snapped his bill in a threat
ening way with a most unpleasant
sound and went on to the Green
Forest. Bobby was too big for him.
He was too big and too strong. Bobby
grinned and went on his way. And
so presently he slipped under the
fence into the cornfield. He stood up
at the first cornstalk he came to and
pulled it over until he could get at an
aar. He tore open the husk. His
hunch had been right—the com was
Just as he liked it best. Bobby pre
pared to feast.

3EEN DYING TO
■UCILLE SOMETHING
MONTHLY martyrdom to func
tional periodic pain is out of style!
It’s now old-fashioned to suffer in
silence, because there is a depend
able relief for such suffering.
Some women who have always
had the hardest time are relieved by
Midol.
Many who use Midol do not feel
one twinge of pain, or even a
moment’s discomfort during the
entire period.
Midol brings quick relief which
usually lasts for hours. The principal
ingredient in Midol is one which is
frequently prescribed by specialists.
Don’t let the calendar regulate
your activities! Don’t “favor your
self’ or “save yourself’ on certain
days of every month! Keep going, '
and keep comfortable—witn the
aid of Midol. These tablets provide
a proven means for the relief of
such pain, so why endure suffering
Midol might spare you?
You can get Midol in a trim
aluminum case at any drug store.
Two tablets should see you through
your worst day.
