CHATTERER GETS ANOTHER
Chatterer the Red Squirrel had
never had so many surprises good
surprises in all his life as since the
day he had been caught In a trap in
Farmer Brown's corn crib. In the
first place, it had been a great sur
prise to him that he had not been
given to Black Pussy the Cat, as he
had fully expected to be. Then had
come the even greater surprise of
finding that Farmer Brown's 1oy
was ever and ever so much nicer
than he had thought. A later sur
prise had been the wire wheel in his
cage, so that he- could run to his
heart's content. It was such a
pleasant and wholly unexpected sur
prise it , had quite changed Chatter
er's feelings toward Farmer Brown's
The fact is, Chatterer- could have
been truly happy but for one thing
he was a prisoner. Yes. sir, he was
a prisoner, and he couldn't forget it
for one minute while he was- awake.
He used to watch Farmer Brown's
boy and wish with all his might that
he could make him understand how
dreadful it was to be in prison. But
Farmer Brown's boy couldn't under
stand what Chatterer said no matter
how hard Chatterer tried to make
him. He seemed to think that Chat
terer was happy. He just didn't
understand that not all the good
things in the world could make up
for loss of freedom that it is better
to be free, though hungry and cold,
than in a prison with every comfort.
Chatterer had stoqd.' it pretty well
"and made the best of things until
Sammy Jay" had found him, and
Reddy Fox had made fun of him,
and Peter Rabbit had peeped at him
from behind the old -stone wall. The
very sight of them going' where they
pleased and when they pleased had
"been too much for Chatterer, and
such a great longing for the Green
Forest, and the Old Orchard filled his
heart that he could think of nothing
else.. He just sat in a corner of his
cage and looked as miserable -is he
felt. He lost his appetite.' In vain
Farmer Brown's boy brought im the

Just couldn't eat for the great long

until it seemed ready to burst. He

much pleasure at first. He was home

At last he crawled up and peeped out
of his little round doorway. Chat
terer gave a little gasp and then
rubbed his eyes. Was he dreaming?
He scrambled out in a hurry and
peeped through the wiresyof his cage.
Then he rubbed his eyes again wnd
rushed over to the other eide of the
cage for another look. Ilia cage
wasn't on the usual shelf at all! It
was on the snow-covered stone wall
on the edge of the Old Orchard:
Chatterer was so excited he didn't
know what to do. He raced around
the. cage. Then he jumped into the
Little Rd Flash Ha Was
wire "wheel and made it spin round
and round as never before. When he
was too tired to run any more he
jumped out. And right then he dis
covered something he hadn't noticed
before. The, little door in the top of
his cage was open! It must be that
Farmer Brown's boy had forgotten to
close it -when he put in Chatterer's
breakfast. Chatterer forgot that he
was tired. Like a little red flash he
was outside and whisking along the
snow-covered stone wall straight for
his home in the Old Orchard.
."Chickaree! Chickaree! Chicka
ree!" he shouted as he ran.
"Ha, ha. ha! ( Go it, -you little red
scamp!" shouted a voice behind him.
Then Chatterer knew that Farmer
Brown's, boy had not left the little
door open by mistake, but had given
him his freedom, and right 'then he
knew that they were going to be the
best of friends.

THERE'S NO QUESTION
That Phoenix Meat Company has a reputation of always having good meats.
Our buying ability is such that we can get the best stock on the. market.
We sell steer beef because steer beef is more tender, is more tasty, and has
more food value per pound. "With our years of -experience in Phoenix
makes possible superior equipment and skill for ageing and preparing meat
for your table. Yet many do not real ize that it costs NO MORE to buy such
superior meats at our markets. Sometimes the price per pound may be a
few cents higher but value for value our meats are no more expensive,. and
in the end, cheaper than any place we know of.
For instance: Steer beef costs no more than cow beef, but cow beef
contains more water and shrinks in cooking. When placed on the table, the
advantage is in favor of the steer beef.

his secret and Muriel's. He would
not share it with Marcia.
"That's where he belongs."
"Yes, he is where he belongs. In a
home." That ended all talk of the
boy until one night when they were
giving a dinner party. Marc(a re
garded their guests with the jrtory
of how John . had brought home a
red-headed boy expecting her to keep
him." They all seemed to , think it
But it gave Jchn a new interest in
life, a more intense interest because
it was shared by Muriel Doran. He
worked even harder now. but did not
give way so easily to Marcia's de
mands when she urged him to .leave
"that old desk" t go out with her.
He had the boy to tare for, later to

Mrs.,, Turner'" kindness to the little
chap in a way that made John feel at
rest about the boy. He had soon
ceased to grieve Jot his own mother,
Mrs. .Turner had been so quick in
sensing - his needs and filling them
by showering the mother- love he
needed 'upon him.
Often John went out of h'.s way to
stop and play with Kenneth, who
.called him "Uncle John" and loved
him deeply Nearly always there
was' a new toy, a bock, some little
gift in his hand. Really the com
panionship of the boy was making
John younger, smoothing the lines
of care from bis lace because of the
urge of youth to be youthful. .
Kenneth' was an added bond be
tween John Aidrich and Muriel Do
ran. Had Marcia known of the feel
ing Muriel's ready help bad awakened
in John, the comparison he could not
avoid making she would not have re
counted so gaily what she called a
ridiculous action in expecting her to
take the boy into her home.
Now when John thought of Muriel
there came into his mind the day she
had taken the boy to her heart and
helped him find a real home for the
little waif. , She had taken Kenneth
in her arms, had mothered him with
tears in her eyes for his pitiful condi
tion, while Marcia, under the same
circumstances, had angrily dismissed
him. ...... .
"Seme women are potential moth
ers. I- guess; others never could be
"rj;al mothers'," he said to himself as
he compared the two women, their
actions tonar.i the child.
This potential motherhood in Muriel
appealed strongly to the child love in
John. It strengthened dangerously
his feeling for Muriel, although he in
no wise allowed himself to think of
blaming Mareii. Marcia was just
Marcia. . . .
"I must have some new dining room
furniture. John. I law some yester
day when I was shopping with Claire.

"But, Marcia "
"No objections, please. You could
very well afford to take a boy to
bring up. You can afford to give me
a new dining room suite. I can get
rid of the old one in part payment."
And because he did intend to do for
the boy, even though secretly. John
gave Marcia the money for. the fur

feeling that he could not endure a
scene because of the orphan boy. and
