B. Nearly all the world over the hare
is associated mythically with the
e. moon, and it is on this account that
to the rabbit has so much to do with
le Easter. There has been much dis
pute as to why the hare should have
anything to do with the moon, but no
body has arrived at any satisfactory
conclusion on the subject. It is evi
dently a folklore notion of extreme
antiquity, which partly accounts for
re its wide distribution. The rabbit is
nocturnal in habit, coming out at
night to feed, and that might have
or started the idea. It is asserted by
students of such matters that the left
hind foot of a graveyard rabbit, killed
in the dark of the moon, represents
the last quarter of the moon, and fir
that reason is lucky.

MISS SILVER LINING
By MOLLIE MATHER
Copyright. 1931, Westers Newspaper Union
Rain, rain, and sombre clouds, an
unfamiliar village street. and a man
trudging along, gloomily. At the
farthest end of the street, a weather
beaten house, its faded green blinds
closed against possible sunshine, its
verandas bleak, and wind-swept.
To this uncomfortable goal, the
stranger forced his way. He
questioned a passer-by as to where en
tertainment might be found, and was
directed uncertainly, to the shabby
house at the end of the street.
"Mebbe Miss Perkins will take you
in" offered the passer-by.
When Philip Clogston agreed to run
out to the country to look over the
farm his elderly sister anticipated
buying, he expected to drive the fifty
odd miles in his car. Minerva was
imperative that he should go no later
than Wednesday. and on this
Wednesday afternoon of stormy
weather, roads leading to the ua
frequented country were almost Im
passable. So Philip, impatient with
this new whim of his whimsical sister,
boarded the train.
Upon his arrival at Lynden village,
he found that the next returning train
would not leave until eight o'clock that
evening, the farm which he was to pass -
judgment upon, was four miles up an
isolated road. He decided, still TI
angrily, to go back at eight o'clock
without fulfilling his errand.
What did Minerva want with a farm
any way? But then why did Minerva
enter into any of the foolish business
ventures which claimed her purse and

"I kin give you some ham an' home- a

offered laconically, "If you want to it

"Thanks," Philip returned drily, "I at
will wait here." He settled down In
his overcoat frowning. "Woman are m
queer," he reflected. "wherever you
happen to meet them." His memory bi
of his own mother was that of an ex- ol
acting invalid. Minerva, with whom m
he made his home was a creature of III
changing, unreasoning mood. Then al

a a silver lining." "Great promise that, st
in this tomb of a room," he meditated. fj
Then across the rattle of wind and rI
lng rain outside came a ripple of soft c'
e laughter. I
It "Well, that's my last splashing I
hope." called a girlish voice. Philip
looking through the window saw a
young woman turn to wave to an old
heman who had evidently brought her 1i
ow to the shabby house In his buggy. He E
heard her explaining to Miss Perkins. O
"I came out from the city as a s- tl
her prise to visit Aunt Ellen, and I find
do- that Aunt Ellen has gone away shop- tl
ping until tomorrow. Will you take w
me in for the night, please Hannah." "
"Well, mobbe," Hannah graciously a
the complied, "They's a man In there, h
our come to supper," she added. tl
"Good afternoon," she greeted d
Philip pleasantly, and turned quickly ti
to light the forbidden fire. "
"We are going to be cheererful" she I
told Hannah firmly. s

magnetic waves in the ether. But what
are electro-magnetic waves? Briefly.
they are disturbances traveling
through ether or space, writes French
Strother in the World's Work. When
you see sunlight, you see electro-mag
netic waves, at such a number of vi
brations per second that they are per
ceptible to your senses through your
sense of feeling or touch. But both
light and heat are exactly the same
thing, namely, electro-magnetlc waves.
The only difference between them Is
that the lngths of the waves are dif-"
ferein. T'hewiave-length of light is al
most Inconceivably short-about one
fifty-thousandth of an inch. The wave
length of heat iS longer-about one
ten-thousandth of an Inch. Now, wire
less is exactly the same thing as light
and beat, except that its wave-length
is Immensely longer-anywhere fros
200 feet to 20 miles.
