"I hoard a little creature talking the other day." said Mr. Moon, "aud this little creature I'm ~1 speaking of was a little girl named Anne. /If .. "\nne was look V "1>: ai I,,e ns -1 I? jKjf some of the gray V^jJ ut me and said: il^V n cotues Mr. Moon jj through those f KAr 'u> '8 co,,,'n? I -J Tm? through them. Doesn't he look Taking Their handsome?' B??ks. "Of course that pleased me. Even a creature as Important as the moon likes to he considered handsome. So I looked my brightest and best when I came through the clotnl at lust. "Then she begged her mother to let her stay up a little longer so she could see more of me, but It seems she had already stayed up beyond her time. "I could see. though, how she wanted to stay up longer. 1 have heard that It Is not only children who do not want to go to bed as early as they should, but that grown-ups, too, aren't very fond of going to bed as soou as they I should go! "To be sure, children and grown-ups l must all go to bed before they want to in order to be strong and well and happy, but none of them want to go to bed I do believe. "Nm, I don't believe nil grown-ups I want to go to bed as soon as they should, and that they tiud It hard, too, \ to make themselves go. "I've peeped into windows when | they've been reading interesting books | ?for you know books aro most inI terestlng. "You know that, eh?" Mr. Moon looked about at the stars. "We don't know much about books," said the stars, "even though we are so bright." 'Til tell you about books," said Mr. Moon. "And I'll tell you something of the way people feel about them. "I'll tell you ahout books and put my little speech into verso!" So Mr. Moon said: "Books have stories In them. Hooks have pictures, too. Whatever In the world Without them would we dot'* "Now," said Mr. Moon, "the first two lines of my verse told you what books \\;ere, or what hooks are. "1 gave a very good description. I think, of hooks, not using too many words. "I didn't want to use too many words, because I thought I should leave the words for the books. "That was good of me, I'm sure. "Now, the last two lines describe the | way I think people feel about them, | for the way I've , watched people ? ? 1 reading has made I "lie think that. T an though they E ; couldn't get along j ?r I t h on t their ^||||||||p|^^ \ books to some one J?K ! to read to them .jLy~ bef-?re they went , to bed, and they've ^tz^Sc : held those hooks i as If they loved them dearly. "gZT^"^^Se? "But I wanted to tell you about Anne, and how "Fast Asleep." uhe hogged tostny i wp. This I* what she said to her mother, after she had already stayed ' up a little bit longer still: | '"The Moon 1b lucky! That's what 1 say! He's not sent to bed at the end of the day!' "I laughed when I Jienru mm, ana j then I said, and I do hope she utuler| stood: ; " 'But then, of course. It's also true. That he sleeps all day unlike girls, and boys, too!' "I do hope she understands me when I said that, and I think she did, for I heard her say us she went off to bed, and as she was talking with her | mother: I '"But then, of course. It's also true, 1 That he sleeps all day, unlike me and you!' "And a little while Inter I peeped In her window and I found her fast fast asleep, with the Dreamland King perched on the end of her bed." Not Necessary. A little girl wanted to p'jtht some seeds that she found, so she took them to her grandfather to read the list. She is six years old, so he read: Limn leans, corn, salad, etc,, next horseradish. She said: "Oh, grandpa, we haven't any horses. What Is the use of planting that?" ' $1.50 gets the Register a year. Fruit Bud* All Right So Far.Examination of toe fruit buds in the Cumberland-Martinsburg - Winchester fruit belt since the late snowstorm and winter weather shows the buds to be in the best of condition, with the prospect excellent for one of the biggest fruit yields, including both peaches and apples, according to H. W. Miller, of Paw Paw. a pioneer in the fruit industry in this section. He said he has made a close examination of a great number or buds cut from trees in his own orchard and found them uniformly healthy, well formed, with the trees' growth and sap coursing so held back bv the winter weather that there was little immediate danger of the buds being pushed forward and opened to the dangers of later winter. The opinion of Mr. Miller was echoed by other growers in the fruit belt. Apple buds, according to the growers, seem further advanced toward maturty than do the peach for some reason which is not plain to the growers, although the fruit men interpret the fact as not indicating any dangerous condition. The apple yield usually follows the peach yield by two months and the apple buds come somo weeks after the peach buds in the normal course of events. The advanco apple growth is particularly true of certain varieties, the growers report. iMrs. Izetta lewell Hroun wiring ?r Congressman W. G. Brown, who has been prominently mentioned as a candidate for Congress from the second district Of West Virginia, and who made the nomination speech for John W. Davis for President at the San Francisco Convention in 1919, has been elected president of the Preston County Farm Bureau. She is the first woman to head a farm bureau organization in West Virginia and is probablv the first woman to head a county organization of farmers in the entire country, it is said. Mrs. Brown is the owner of a large and flourishing dairy farm in Preston county, taking grcal interest in pure-bred stock-raising, and last year was one of the West Virginia women delegates to the national meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation at New Orleans. Before ?hc became the bride of Congressman Brown, Mrs. Brown was rcgnrded as one of the most popular actresses that Washington has ever known. George K. McCormick, lt> years old, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. McCormick; Ernest Lloyd, Jr., 14, so', of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Lloyd, and Richard Ncwcold, about 18, all of Brunswick, Md., ; have disappeared from home and arc being sought by Sheriff James A Jones 1 and his deputies and officials of other counties along the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

The census registration officer had learned the spinster's name, occupation and parentage and at last broached the dangerous subject of age. Then, I says the Kpworth Herald, this con1 versation took place: "Have the Misses Hill, who live next door, given you their ages?" she ,snapped. "No, Miss Brown?" "Well, then, I'm the same aec as , they." "That will do," murmured the officer, and he pmcecdcd to fill out the space with these words: " Miss Brown, as old ns the hills."
