ONE day a very large frog called Buster by the other frogs be cause he was the very largest "' In the pond, sat on a log look ing about and thinking how much he would like to live in a hole on the ground or In a cave. "There is Mr. Bruin now," he said, "sunning himself in front of his cave. He has plenty to eat, because he can store food away in his cave, and then all he has to do la sleep. Oh. dear, how I wish I could live in a cave." "You better be satisfied where you are." aaid an old frog, who heard Bus ter's complaint. "You would have aj fine time walking about on land with your legs. Why. a dog would catch you without half trying, or a boy who was looking for your hind legs would pounce upon you quick enough you will find If you leave this pond." "He is an old frog and does not know as much as I do." said Buster, as the old. frog went to the bottom of the pond. "The idea of wanting to stay here all your life and never seeing anything but water. "There is the squirrel family eating nuts. I wish I could live In a tree and eat nuts, too." "Blister blinked and thought, and the more he thought the more he could live on the land, so ne waited until it was past time for frogs to go to bed and then he hopped nlong the log on which he had been sitting and soon he was on the bank of the pond. He had been there often, so he felt very brave and looked cbout without the least fear. After a while he hepped further away from the pond. He could hear the other frogs croaking, but he did not answer them, he had deter mined to live on land and give up pond life. He hopped and hopped until he was so far from the pond he could hear only a faint sound of the croaking. "This Is more like living." said Buster. "I will sleep by this tree until morning, and then I can see where I should like -to make my home." But he could not go to sleep; he want ed water to make him cool, his legs were stiff from hopping ro far and he was panting for water, but there was only the trees and rocks, and poor Bus ter w-as beginning to think the land would not be surh a fine place for him to live after all. He tried to hop back to his pond but his legs refused to work, and he sat down wondering what would become of him. when he felt something wet on his head. He blinked and then felt another wet place on his back, und then the water come all over him. It was rain ing and Buster began to feel better. The place where he sat was in a little hollow, and soon It was filled with wp Under Government Supervision If you like to save, wish to save, or have to save, join this 32-year-old savings association.

"I should think they would die here on land," he said after a while, "all these stones and trees and no water. If ever I get back to my pond I will never wish for a home on land again." It took Buster all night to travel. He could not hop as well as he did when he left the pond, but he kept on. and Just as the light was showing in the sky he reached the bank of the pond. "Hello. Buster!" called his friends. "You are up bright and early this morning. Have you had your break fast?" "No, I have no appetite this morn ing." answered Buster, letting a big fly rest on a leaf beside him without catching It. "I thought the early sun might do me good, but I gueks I will go to the bottom of the pond and keep quiet for the rest of the day." Down he went with a splash and no one saw him again until the next day. "Good morning, BOster," said the old frog when he saw Buster on the log. "Are you still thinking you would like to live on land?" "No," said Buster; "I think water will be good enough for roe. I do not think I should like being dry all the time." "That is a good, sensible fellow," said the old frog. "I am glad you took my advice and did not try It." Buster kept on blinking. He knew the only way he ever should have been cured of his longing was to have tried It: but he was wise enough to let tlvj old frog think he had taken his ad vice and not be called a foolish young frog.

HANGING In a. handsome frame in the lobby of Chase's Theater is a silent, though none the Ies3 eloquent, tribute to the Prfison Klnetophone, more commonly known as the talking picture. It Is as follows: The Modern Historic Records Associa tion. In the history" of Its work of preserv ing for posterity the records of our con temporary history by he best methods known to modern science, the Modern Historic Association, with the courte ous co-operation of Thomas A. Edison, invited the Hon. William J. Gaynor, mavor of the City of New York, with some of his heads of departments, to make a talking picture record of their views on vital phases of the administra tion in New York, the greatest city of our nation. The record made by Mr. Edison's lat est Invention, the Klnetophone. taken on April 17. 1913. is nereoy certified Dy a those represented In the original record, and on this first day of May, 1913. was committed to the care of the Modern Historic Records Association, for pre servation, with this attesting parchment In its archives as a part of our civic history for future generations.

As a result: t the chief officials of the largest city in j this country are seen and heard n the active process of administration, "it Is hoped that similar records will now be made by other officials of the Uni ted States. What a much more simple matter It will be for future generations to refer to the record of a talking "movie," In stead of struggling through large and dusty volumes for historical data. 'The idea offers unusual possibilities In the field of comparative administration. Po litical agitators and these who are hopeful for the 'test possible govern ment for this country- will have their information at their finger tips ver batim, and if the other countries will only follow the example set by the Uni ted States In using the klnetophone In a like manner, it will not be difficult directly to compare constitutional mon archies, republics, and empires. The value of the work of the klneto phone in making a record for historical preservation has been Indorsed by the leading men of the nation.
