New Indian Animal Stories
How the Rabbit Stole the Otter*s Tail By JOHN M. OSKISON ■ ■ \\ . i J Q . V) Color the Animals to Suit Yourself. (Copyright, by McClure Newspaper Syndi cate.) Long time ago the animals met and held a council to decide who had the finest coat. In those days, they were always quarreling about their good looks, for they did not have enough to do to keep themselves busy. Far up the creek lived the otter —so far that he very seldom came down to visit the other animals. It was said that the otter had a very 'ine coat, but it had been such a long time since any of them had seen him that no one could remember just how it looked. When the word went out to come to the council the rabbit said he would go and make sure that the otter would come. And to himself the rabbit said: "I must have the most beautiful coat of all at the council. I will go to the otter, and If hiß coat 's as fine as I think it is, I must plan a way to steal it and wear it at the council.” So the rabbit went up the creek to where the otter lived and invited him to the council. As soon as he saw the otter, the rabbit knew that his soft brown fur coat was the most beautiful of all. "The animals sent me to bring you to the council,” said the rabbit to the otter. "It is a long way from here, and I will be glad to go with you." The otter thanked him and they started back to the council. They traveled all day and at night they made a camp. The rabbit se lected the camping ground, for, as he said to the otter, “you are a stranger here and I know just what to do.” After he had cut some little bushes for beds and they had finished their supper, the rabbit took a stick and be gan to shave it down to the shape of a paddle. The otter asked him: AMUSING FOR YOUNG PEOPLE Bow and Arrow Designed Chiefly for Those Interested in Archery— May Be Used Indoors. This bow and arrow has been de signed chiefly for those interested in the outdoor sport of archery, but may also be used indoors if care is taken to avoid windows and pictures. The i'viw 1 y V — ' A Bow and Arrow. bow. which is 28 inches in length, is made cl two pieces of strong steel wire connected to a nickel-plated hand piece shaped so that the arrow can be quickly placed in position for shooting. The bowstring is made of strong mate rial and the arrow is of hard wood. 15 inches long, with a soft rubber tip. and weighs only 8 ounces. Exclamations. Among the queer exclamations now in everyday use, "Hello!’' and ‘‘Hur rah!” have perhaps the queerest ori gins attributed to them. It i6 said that the people of Camwood forest. Leicestershire. England, when they desire to hail a person at a distance, call out not ‘hello!" but halloup!" Tnis. a well known author says, is simply a survival of the time when one cried to another: “A loup! a loup!” or ‘‘A wolf! a wolf!” "Hurrah!” according to Mr. Llttre. is deriv “and from the Slavonic "huray!” ‘ To par dise!" which signifies that all soldiers who fell fighting went straight to heaven. Placed. Teacher —Now James, do yju under stand the meaning of the word, “ex tinct”” . James—Yes’rn. Teacher —Tnen name one bird that Is now extinct. James —Chipper. Teacher—Chipper?

"The flirt." she said, "has a good •ime in the present—a good time of % sort In the present—but what about the future’ "Many a girl Is on the shelf today because she kept men on the rack jeeterday .** Hard to Turn. What key is the hardest to turn? A donkey. “What are you doing that for?” “Oh,” said the rabbit, “I have good dreams when I sleep with i paddle under my head.” Then the rabbit cut a clear path from the fire to the edge of the stream. “Why are you doing that?” asked the otter. “I will tell you,” said the rabbit. “This place is very near the Fire Sky, and maybe it will rain fire tonight. You go to sleep and I will sit up and watclf. If it does begin to rain fire I will shout. Then you jump right up and run to the water. But first hang up your coat on a limb over there, so that it won’t get burnt.” And so the otter hung his coat on a limb and went sound asleep. After a while the fire burned down to red coals; the rabbit called, but the otter never stirred; he called again, but the otter was too sound asleep to hear. Then the rabbit took up some hot coals on the paddle he had made and threw them into the air. At the same time he shouted, “It Is raining fire! Run to the water, Mr. Otter!” The otter woke up and saw hot coals falling all around him, and he lost no time in running to the river and jumping in. Then the rabbit took the otter’s coat, put it on and went to the council. At the council every one thought the otter had a beautiful coat, but he was very bashful, for he kept a paw over his face all the time. Finally the bear came up and pulled the paw away and there was the rabbit with his split lip! Before the bear could catch him the rabbit jumped up and got away. But the bear got a piece of his tail and so now the rabbit has only a stump of a tail left; and, besides, the rabbit had to give back the otter’s coat. OPPORTUNITY FOR FARM BOY Washington and Lincoln Were Men of Great Strength and Had Ad vantage of Open Air. For city boys, the correspondence schools and night schools afford the best means available in continuing an education. The main difficulty en countered is the fact tha. their hours of employment leave no time or strength for study. Many have im paired their health in attempting more than their strength would permit. Washington and Lincoln were men of great strength and endurance, and had the advantage of open-aii life in their youth. This is a tremendous advantage. All farm boys have it, snd they now have an advantage in many places after they leave school. Farm work is educational. The farmer who keeps his eyes and mind open grows bigger intellectually every day that he lives. The country agricultural agent, or demonstrator, adds to this advan tage. He brLigs the school to the farm. With Ms help and suggestions, the boys ra the farm can develop themselves in a way that makes the educational advantages of the city of negligible importance. Diseases of School Children. Tuberculosis of the lungs is the lead ing cause of death among American children during the period of school life. Next in order are accidents, diphtheria and croup, typhoid fever, and organic diseases of the heart. Out of a total of 51,603 deaths from all causes at ages of five to nineteen. 24.516, or 47.5 per cent, are caused by these five diseases. Tuberculosis causes 14.3 per cent and accidents 18.8 per cent of the mortality among children of school age. The figures are given in an article in the School Review. Who Could Resist? Alfred was having one of his “bad'* days, and upon coming to the table be gan to cry. He waß sent to the kitchen to wait until the family had finished. Several minutes afterward, when the incident was forgotten by all but small Alfred, the kitchen door opened softly and a small red head and a pair of dancing eyes, but a very serious little face, was thrust into the dining room, while a very pathetic little voice said: "Anybody here call Alfred?” Edna Was Curious. Small Edna gazed thoughtfully Into her grandmother's wrinkled face. “Grandma,” she said. ‘ I'd like to hava seen your face when it was gTeen.” Definition of W'.-,d.

Careful Handling to Remove Wrinkles la One <f the First Requisites— May Be Washed If Due Care Is Taken. The life of a veil depend* entirely upou the way it Is manipulated when not in act on. Few of us ever give our veils hard enough wear when they are actually in service to wear i then; out, out sometimes the careless handling of a day or so wi l ruin a i veil that wou.’d las', for week) if prop erly treated. Here is a good practice for the preservatio 1 of veils that an | economical English woman has ex plained to her American friends. Whenever you take ofT a veil, roll It. Now take the bottom c>f the veil in j your right fingers and the top in your left flngerc and give it a gentle pull to stretch any wrinkles, and after that do wbat you please with it. You may fold it over and put It in your handbag if you choose, or In a crowd ed bureau drawer or in a traveling bag. But when you come tc> use the veil next time you will find that It is jln good shape. Ideally speaking, a wooden veil roll Is a splend and instru > ment for the safe keeping of veils, but j who takes the trouble to put the veil on a roB? And, of course, It Is the once you don’t take care of the veil that does the damage. Never leave a veil on a. hat—that is, if you want to wear it a second time. Of course, no woman likes to make a show of preserving the life of veils by j spreading hers out every time she chances to remove It. Yet with a lit tle dexterity she-can roll it up as the economica little Englishwoman does, In a flash, and the life of the veil will have been doubled. I)ld you ever try to wash a veil? Probably not, yet it is not a difficult process if the veil is white, and with care a colored veil can sometimes be put through soap and water. Always use a suds of pure white soap and warm, not hot, water, and don’t leave the veil in the water for more than a minute. Finse he veil in dear water after it hts been in the soaoy water, and allow it to dry by pinning it out at rhe edges on a counter pane. Chiffon veils will lend themselves surprisingly well to a cleansing process and the woman who wears them for motoring or for seashore promenades will real ize a decided saving if she knows the kna.ck of washing them. Wedding Gc.vns. Silver brocades and embroideries are lavish’y used on the exquisite bri dal gowns that are being; made for the many weddings arranged for the neat few weeks. Satin mousseline, even finer and more supple lhan char meuse, is practically the only fabric ■with silver brocaded gauze introduced, ancl white roses and lilacs are the fa vorite flowers for bridal bouquets. For the Small Girl’s Coat. Separate collar and cuff sets are made for the small girl’s coat. Tor chon and Valenciennes, sometimes cluay and Irish point—arc combined in these collars and cuffs, and they give a particularly dainty and fresh appearance to the simple, dadk coats of serge or gabardine or silk on which they are used. Hand-Made Rugs. There is nothing more charming | than home-made rag rugs lor the sum- I mor cottage, and it is surprising that more women do not take up this prac tical if ol 1-fashionod handiwork. One do the necessary dyeing and weav ing at home and the utensils neces sary are neither complicated nor ex pensive. TO PROTECT DAINTY FROCK Ore-Piece Pinafore Almos" an Essen tial in the Wardrobe o’* the Small Girl. A most useful addition to the child’s wsrdrobe is the one-piece pinafore, which, mf.de to cover a dainty frock, can be slipped on and olf at a mo ment’s nitice, thereby solving the problem of keeping the child pre sentable during play-time, and also helping to curtail the weekly laundry bill. It should be made In galatea, brown holland, linen or any washing material (tat resists hard water. The piaafore is slipped over the head, and the making of it up offers no difficul ties whatever, for the piece of straight material is just doubled (to the length of pinafore required), and then shaped at the neck and shoulders. It is fas tened at ’he side with tapes, but little straps of the material fastened on one edge and buttoned on to the other can be used iastead. Pockets, of course, should be added to the apron, for children delight in these, and small designs, soch as fig ures, animals, flowers trees, etc., mf.y be worked on them. It should be borne in mind, however, thut all mate rials employed in these trimmings should bo of a washable and durable quality. Parasol Novelties. Paraso s w ith centers of plain taf- I feta and borders of plaid chiffon are among the latest novelties. r ..heee have long handies tipped with amber or enamel to match a color of the plaid. 1 Black and white in huge squares is the lates’ idea. TO PRESERVE HAIR'S GLOSS Most Effective Shampoo Ik Made of Yolk of Egg With Borax and Warm Water. The chief beauty of brawn hair is In the play of light and shade upon it. and of black hair in its gloss. Its health c<n be fairly gauged by the degree lit which it possesses these qualities.

It is built in crepe brocade, with hood and sash of satin ribbon. The Panama hat ir trimmed with a black wing. DICTATES OF FASHION Plaitings of net are very much used on the new caps for babies. Separate skirts of linen or pique for golf or tennis are severely plain in line and have patch pockets. Veils of extremely fine linen mesh are worn over the small hats and cover only the upper half of the face. The cap crown of moire, satin or taffeta finished with a heavy cording is a feature of many of the newest hats. The tango nightgown is the newest, and resembles a chemise and Turk ish trousers combined. It is said to be comfortable. Sashes and belts are a feature of children’s dresses. Sashes are quite wide.’ Belts are of suede and colored and patent leather. Frocks of white taffeta have super seded the ones of white crepe de chine, so popular last season. They ave trimmed with ruches, puffings and shirrings. Smart little eton jackets of taffeta accompany children’s frocks of crepe or batiste. These are sometimes bor dered with small bullet buttons of coral, jet or amber. Insect Beauty Patch. In spite of the long run which beauty patch styles in veils have had they continue to be widely featured and to sell with considerable free dom. There is an effective beauty patch design in the new’ circular veil in the form of a handrun floral design, large enough to cover almo • one en tire cheek. All sorts of Insect beauty spots con tinue prominent. Among the newest of these in a black bug on a flesh-col ored hair-line. The body of the bug is heavily embroidered on the mesh of the veil, but the wings are em broidered on a separate piece of net so as to hang loose from the veil. NEW AND STRIKING COLORS Some of the Prettiest That Have Been Offered for Many Seasons Are Now Available. The new r silver green is a lovely tint. It exactly resembles the color of a breaker just before it topples over below its crown of foam., and is par ticularly effective in velvet and silk cashmere, broches and soft silks. In satin its white lights are rather strong. It is the prettiest shade of green that has been seen for many years, and will undoubtedly be popular. Another new color that has caught on is called “coq de roche,” and is | deeper and warmer than buff and lias an affinity with tango tint. But the ! union of black and white is the most I noticeable of the moment, and Scotch j tartan is in great demand among the fashionable dressmakers. It is used for panniers and for frills, edging panniers of other material, also for the sash in some of its novel forms such as extending into a train, catch ing the folds of draped skirts, form ing an immense bow some inches be low the waist at the back, occasionally even in front, with ends falling beiow the knees. One may see before long whole gowns composed of sash and stole, and nothing more. The New Plaid Bags. The new plaid bags are quite differ ent from the brilliant ones of the i early spring. They are made cf gray or tan twilled silk for the upper part, j and with stripes in dull, soft colors for the lower part, and they are ended , ith a long tassel in the color of the j top of the bag. ing, a substitute may be found, good, also, for blond hair, in castor oil, two drams, and rectified spirits, one ounce. This may be perfumed with a dror of oil of verbena or oil of orange flower. Fans in Fashion. Fans ai-e likely to be more in vogue during the summer season than they have been for some time, and they :er tainly give a charming finishing touch to the toilet. Lace and feather fans have ever been favorites and can be very costly. Painted fans, too, may be very pretty and they are often gems of artistic design and execution. Feathers other than ostrich plumes ire occasionally pressed into serv.ee, mounted on tortoise shell or mother of-pearl sticks. Some of these sticks are studded with gems, turquoises es pecially lending themselves with bath to light and dark mounts. Asa rule, opaque stones look best. Her Way.
