Prince Sleet smiled a snowy, wet,
icy smile, which they all thought was
very sweet and nice, and then he made
a low bow.
"Well. old Wind, what do you say to
The wind gave a long whistle, "I

After they had sung this song they
all started to play gamnes, to rush this

they tried to catch each other. They

NEEDFIRE OLD FOLK CUSTOM
Part of the Ritual of Purification That
Has Survived in Scotland Until
In folk custom, needflre is fire kin
riled by friction of two sticks of wood
or of a rope on a wooden stake to
ward off demons of disease. Among the'
many customs and beliefs connected
with fire one of the most important is
that of ritual purification. The new
fire is supposed to regenerate, as fire
sacrifice is designed to sustain, the
Invisible beings. Needflre is a prac
tice, usually, of shepherd peoples to
ward off disease from the flocks. In
historic times the sparks for kindling
the needfire were obtained by twirling
a wooden peg around a wooden post.
As in the case of new fire, the need
fire was almost always accompanied
with the extinguishing of the fires of
the locality, and the neighbors also
rekindled their fires from it as in the
new fire ceremony. In practice, the
people passed, or the herds were driv

the needfire for purification. The need
fire custom survived in the highlands
of Scotlanl until recent date, and
probably traces of this superstition
still exist In parts of Europe.

TIRED OF HIS LITTLE SPR

Mrs. RIobert Tonlinsin of Muitl

Immediately the whole town

Woody. He was reported here sat.
there, feeding with the town sparrows,
Mrs. B. would call up and say that she
had seen him, but by the time bin
owner came he was gone.
For a whole month Woody cavorted
around with the pests of the neigheboe
hood. Then dark, rainy days begat
to dawn. Still Woody stayed with the
sparrows. A neighbor called :ip from
the other side of the town one day
and said that Woody was sitting
around in her trees, the very picture
of despair. There is little doubt that
he was thinking of his wara cage
at home. So his owner hldl herself
over to the spot and hung his cage
in one of the trees. Then shoe went
in to gossip. The rain cntinued to
fall and presently Woody hopped into
his cage and the tragedy was over,
for that night he had his regular warm
spot in the dining room.
