Suffragets Brass Band
to Serenade House of Lords
Loudon, July IL —“When woYds fail,
try music!” That's the Slogan of the
suffragets, and they have organized a
woman's brass band, which is going to
play under the windows of the house of
lords to attract the noblemen to their

that the lords would be glad enough

The girl of the Brookland Farms
stepped from the leisurely accommoda
toon train and looked abyut for the
people of her tribe. Not finding them,
•he frowned, spoiling a pretty fore
head, until a young man, bearing a
whip, a suit case aud a new saddle
blanket, hailed her.
“Hello, Virginia. Gol ding, T’m glad
Co eee you! ’’
The young lady elevated her gloved
hand to a level with the mas’s felt
hat. “Ah, Bub!” she exclaimed, “a
gKmpse of your bucolic presence is re
freshing after an urban ‘ojourn.”
“If you mean you’re giad to see me,
don’t you say so?” murmured Bub
Hawkins, rather sullenly, ignoring the
elevated hand. “Uncle Hiram’s got
the rheumatiz twitches and sent me
to meet you.”
As they sped in Deacon Berry’s new
buckboard along the splendid, meadow
lined road, Virginia Berry made con
tfhital observations. “What a pastoral
scene the lowing kine present, Bub.”
“Them Jerseys is sure for. the blue
ribbon at the fair this year,” assented
Mr. Hawkins.
“How the old homestead will bring
back childhood’s golden fancies! ” mur
mured the girl.
“They’ve painted tho barn sky
blue,” commented Bub.
A little further on Virginia Berry
turned to the rather dogged young man.
“Why don’t you devote more time to
• self-ornamentation and to the acquir
ing of the arts and graces, Bub? You
have the making of a handsome young

Tho girl clapped her hands in unaf
fected glee. “Oh, Buo, I’m so glad.
You’re going, of course?”
Bub slowly nodded his head, and al
lowed the subject to drop. The girl
sighed and looked at him with sidelong
glances. Always he had taken her to
1 these rollicking gatherings, and always
i she had enjoyed them to the utmost.
As they drove through the wagon gate
at home, she sighed again.
“Ah, the air is filled with nature’s

“Yes,” answered Bub, dryly, “that's
Willie’s pet pink pig under the gate.

Hawkins was the leading spirit.
“Swing corners!” his eheery voice re
sounded; and the merry rompers spun
giddily around.* “Change partners!”
| he cried; and there was a general, ju
bilant shuffle. Virginia Berry, usually
the belle of the ball, sat in a corner
with a young professor from the city.
The young beaux of the dance were in
awe of her new speech and gestures

toward agricultural betterment?”
“Yes, indeed,” answered Miss Bery

After they had tired of dancing, some

the pillow was Betty Canby and Bub

log under some tall cattails that grew
' beside a beauiful lake, watching a
proud crane splash about in the water.
“It must be nice to spread one’s wings,

j to see everything on earth that is

l I am small and can only hop around
i through the swamps and dive under

his cheeks.
As he sat there bemoaning his fate
an idea suddenly came to him. He
sprang from the log into the water,
and swam until he reached the crane.
' He could see her web feet and part of
her long, slender legs in the water.
He chuckled gayly to himself as he
broke some strong seagrass and twisted
it into a rope. He tied an end firmly
around each leg of tho crane, so it
made a seat like a swing. Then he sat
on it and clasped each of the bird’s
legs with his hands. The fish hovered
around aud watched him curiously. One

him what he was going to do.
