Aunt Este's Stories Por Children My dear little ones: How often have each and every one of you said this little verse? , "Jack Spratt could eat no fat, His wife could eat no lean; And so between them both, you see, They licked the platter clean." I imagine there is no otie who will read this little story who does not know that verse, and yet X guess not one of you has thought HOW JACK SPIIATT CAMK TO MAIIKY MRS. JACK SPHATT. Once upon a time in Mother Goose Village lived Old Mrs. Spratt. Oh. no, not Mrs. Jack Spratt, bul Mr. Jack Spratt's mother. Of course his mother's name had to be Mrs. Spratt, too, or else he never would have had the name of Spratt. Well, Old Mrs. Spratt had almost as many children as the old woman who lived In the. shoe—and they were all such nice well-behaved children. They had such good table manners and were so polite and clean and gentlemanly and lady-like, that when they grew up they had not the slightest trouble to tind themselves hus bands and wives. So one by one they all left Mother Spratt's home and got married—all but her youngest son, Jack. Now Jack was a nice sort of a little fellow when he was a baby—just a smiling, cooing, sleeping little fellow—hut as lie was the baby, Mrs. Spratt started to spoil him, and whenever lie cried the weeniest little bit of a cry she picked him up and rocked him; and when he got a little older, whenever he wanted any thing his brothers and sisters hnd to give it to him: and when he did not want to do anything he never had to do it. So it really was Old Mrs. Spratt's fault that he grew up Into a willful boy and a dreadful sneak—for what he would not eat he WOULD NOT—and because his mother did not make him TRY a little bit of everything he got more and more sneakv each day, until when he was almost a man he ate hardly anvthing. Now the thing he never would try was fat—fat in any form. So my dear little ones you can Imagine what verv few things Jack Spratt really could eat. It was not only meat of which he did not eat the fat. but he would not touch butter or chees» or anvthing fatty—so he got thinner and thinner, until he looked almost like a shadow—and when he grew to he a young man and went a-courting no one would have htm. ''l wouldn't marry such a thin fellow," said all the nice girls In Mother Goose Village, "Besides he is such a dreadful sneak. HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH Big Rally at Lewisberry M. E.

So all the other young men who were Jack Spratt's friends, got married; but poor Jack just lived at home tormenting his old mother and getting thinner each day. One day, however. Old Mother Hubbard got company It was a niece of her s come to visit her from a distance, and such a great fat girl no one in Mother Goose Village had ever seen! She was so fat she just rolled into town, and every one laughed, and said: "Wouldn't she and Jack Spratt make a funny team," although they never know at the time that that Is exactly what would happen. N6w you see all the other young men In the town had been married, so Old Mother Hubbard asked Jack Spratt over to call on her niece. Jack came dressed In his shiniest suit, and whllo the girl was up stairs primping in her "bestest" satin gown, Old Mother Hubbard, who had to talk until she came down, got con fidential with Jack Spratt. "Jack." she said, "she nearly drives me wild—l don't know how to cook for her. My empty cupboard is now full of lean meat, and all the things that have no fat in them. She will cat nothing but fat." "My dear Mother Hubbard, I'll be glad to eat the lean part. I*ot me have It," said Jack. And as he said that a happy thought struck him. Why not ask this girl who would eat no lean to be the wife of the man who would eat no fat. Why that would be a splendid idea. They were Just made for each other, he was sure. And that it what .lark Spratt did. He courted that fat niece of Old Mother Hubbard for several months and one night he asked her to be Mrs. Spratt, and she said "yes"—for you see she didn't care how thin Jack was. Nobody ever before wanted her. and she was glad to have a nice home and plenty to eat— without be growled at for not eating the lean.

He knew his worries were at an end, for he never again was scolded for not eating fat—and the platter was alwava llck"d clean, nnd there was no uaste of anything. So they lived happily ever after. • Lovingly, AUNT ESTE SEPTEMBER 12, 1914.
