The day of ' the 1 farmer is at-hand.
I am proud off the way in which the |j
boys and girls are i taking '" to the .agri
cultural 7 movement. 7: At * any rate,
you're not afraid work, are you?

' .-"I congratulated .them on their in-?'
dustry and assured them that they, j

? Puppy and Ju-ju spend most of
; their time J encamped beside * the" corn ';.'
irows, waiting for the /sprouts 7 that»
s haven't sprouted. 7 Said Pup. the other
'day: 7 "I'll* tell you what,? Ju-ju: ??I
■ think something must. have happened
to those seeds. Maybe the bugs have
eat«a- th«m up." , **—~ — ••- -
At such a dire prediction Ju-ju's
eyes very 7? nearly $ popped ? out of his
/headland he halted right?;where he-j
was, with one foot in the air, which
he clean 7 forgot to': put down. .Wrapped
• in-startled ?speculation,;? he stared at
the Pup J for - three minutes. A ?
77 Finally} Puppy, lost 1 patience. "Well,
why*don't you say something? That's ;
no ;way? for you to act," he declared, ,
. in disgust f; "put your foot down; 1 you
look like a stork."" ' 7 7
*. Recalled J? to 7 the present,' Ju-ju > let
his foot T down to earth with • a thump
Un; fact, he "*twisted-his left toe badly. 7
7 Naturally, he blamed ? Puppy.7 The
? next it few 7 moments were devoted :to ?
• angry' mutterings,' for Ju-ju .when up- ,
... set £ expresses himself 7in i a", language
which would ; put a ; South sea islander
* : to shame, so impossible is it to under
stand.? Then he assured the Pup/that (
; the 'only way 7to * find ? out i whether . the ?
seeds were still there or riot?was to
I dig them up. '*Puppy f was digest
7ing this bit of birdly advice, I arrived
7on the 7 scene 7in time 'to rescue the
garden. I told them it might be a
• whole week 1 before the seeds sprouted,
■v and they'd simply * have '• to be patient 7
; and wait. Puppy ? said ?if 7 they 7 were
• sociable seeds 'they'd come-.;right out
and say "Howdy do?" but I told him
7 you? never could'tell how a 'seed was
going to act, so he'd ; have to wait and
see. Since then they've instituted a
watch, and, if ; mother would [ let him,
I'm 7 sure?? my young brother would
sleep in ? the garden. _;_-•
