Shakespeare from his word cholce—or

There are times today, of course,

RANDMA TABBY had had her |
G day at catching mice and r:us,|
and now she was getting old, and l
as her kind mistress gave her plenty of |
milk and cream, she did not need to |
hunt for her food. ‘
Grandma Tabby's eyes were hrightf
and her wits sharp, even if she did not 1
hunt, and she decided she would give |
good advice to all the young Kkittens |
in the neighborhood about hunting |
mice and rats. |
So all the Mother Pussies brought |
their children to Grandma Tabby lu'
learn wisdom from her In the art of
mice catching and hunting.

Tabby, “must not eat too much. When
I was young I seldom had any milk
or cream. I had to work for my food.

tens than exercise. Just look at me at

when you see a mouse until you have
canght it. You must not expect your
mistress to feed you. She gives you a
home, and you should pay for this by
keeping her house free fromn mice.
“If it is the barn you have to care
for, instead of the house, just keep a
sharp eye on the bags of corn and
grain, and remember that watchful
waiting has its reward.”
All the little kittens listened with
up-standing ears and wide-open eyes
to all that Grandma Tabby was siay
ing, for well they knew that such wis
dom as hers was hard to tind.
“Now, there are the rats,” she said;

my advice to you Is this: When you
<ee a rat look for a trap, there is sure
to be one around; then all you have
to do is to keep that rat from getting
back to his hole.
wChase him toward the trap, and
when he finds he cannot get home he

sure, and there you have him.
wChasing rats into traps is just as
clever as catching them, but never let

that It is a disgrace to any Puss to
have a mouse caught in a trap in the
house where it lives.
«T have heard the saying, ‘Mind your
p's and Q's;’ but that is not for Pus
sles; you must mind your M’s and R’s,
and if you do this you will become
good mousers and rat hunters, which
is the ambition of all well-brought-up
kittens.” ”
As all the kittens trotted home be
hind their mothers they looked so wise
that any mouse or rat would have run
for its life, I am sure, but he would
never have escaped, so well did they

Your little one will love the “fruity”
taste of “California Fig Syrup” even if
constipated, bilious, irritable, feverish,

the bowels and you have a well, play

Millions of mothers keep “California
