didn't soothe Piggy's feelings one bit
that he whipped the new boy, for
the new boy was smaller than Piggy.
And he dared not turn his Bfushed face
I toward's his Heart's Desire. It was
almost four o'clock when Piggy Pen
nlngton walked to the master's desk
to get him to work out a problem,
and as he passed the desk of Heart's
Desire he dropped a note in her lap.
"Are you mad?"
But he dared not look for the an

so he contented himself with punch.

and stepping on his heels, when they
were in the back part of the room,
where the teacher would not see him.
The King of Boyville walked home
that evening. The courtiers saw plain
ly that his majesty was troubled.
After this feat the king was quiet.
At dusk, when the evening chores
were done, Pllgy Pennington walked
past the home of his Heart's Desire
and howled out a doleful ballad which
"You ask what makes this darkey
Why he like others am not gay."
But a man on the sidewalk passing,
said: "Well, son, that's pretty good,
but wouldn't you just as lief sing as
to make that noise?" So the king
went to bed with a heavy heart.
He took that heart to school with
him the next mornlnt, and dragged It
over the school ground, playing crack
the whip and "stink-base." But when
he saw Heart's Desire wearing in her
hair one of the white roses from his
mother's garden-the Pennington's
had the only white roses in the little
town-he knew it was from the wreath
which he had given her, and so light
was his boyish heart that it was with
an effort that he kept It out of his
thrat. There were smiles and smiles
that day. During the singing they
began, and every time she came past

Forecast of the Congressional Elections
WASHINGTON.-The last of the
primaries In the West for the
nomination of candidates for United
States senators and representatives
has been held and the election cam

the senate to be elected the Republl

are assured of continued control of
that body in the next congress, though
possibly by a reduced majority, and
the principal question the election will
answer is whether the Republicans
are to retain control of the house also.
The Harding landslide of 1920 gave
the Republicans the unusual and whol
ly abnormal majority of 169 in the
house, too unwieldy and unmanage
able a majority, say the party leaders,
