E. THE FEATHER COAT NCE there was a puss who had a coat of all white and it both ered him so much when he lay in wait for birds in the garden that he p. wished it was some other color. er "If I had a gray coat like Tabby 16b Grey's I should be better able to hide," he thought, "or if it even was a black I should not show up as I do - now in the grass." old One day when Puss was roaming ion around the farm he came to a place lily where there was a pile of feathers. 9 ' "Oh. if only I could have a coat of p feathers," thought l'uss, "I should never want for birds." S So Puss went to the barn and found of I at aiod r1 a pot of glue. This he tipped over la and rolled in It and off he ran to the pile of feathesn and rolled over and over until he was so thickly covered y,. his cost could not be seen. urN When he went to the kitchen for his saucer of milk, Cook, seeing this strange looking creature, screamed and ran after him with the broom. As be ran past Mr. Dog's house out be came barking and ehased Puss out of the yard and when the hens and Sluecks saw him they all began to make ' a terrible noise. But Puss was not discouraged. He thought more about catchlag birds 1. than be did about loslnlg his triends. So he went to the woods and hid un " der some bushes and waited. When the birds Sew down to the ground Puss came out, thinking be E YBY time I maka asstake een . a kas da Egash I lose da ask.

'Why don't you stay and play with me?" he asked in a soft tone. "Don't you see I am a bird like you? I have feathers." "Yes, we see your feathers." an swered the birds, "but we also see your feet and you have four. We do not play with four-footed animals." Puss had not thought about his feet. He thought all he needed was feathers. He was pretty hungry now, so he ran back home thinking he could get Tabby Grey to share her milk with him, but when she saw him she hump ed her back and looked very fierce. Puss tried to tell her who he was, but it was no use. She would not lis ten and there was nothing to do but go back to the woods. Just as he was running along the path a hunter, seeing the queer ani mal, raised his gun and fired, but Puss was lucky and ran behind a rock unharmed. There he stayed thinking over his sad plight. He was covered with feathers and still he was not a bird, and even his own kind would not have him around. "If I ever get rih of this coat I will Ie satisfied with what Nature gave tne," thought Puss, "and I will hunt mice and drink my saucer of milk and be thankful." It was a long time before Puss was rld of his feather coat and he looked anything but handsome for a long time, but when he did at last get back his soft white coat he was a wiser puss, you may be sure.

Line Commen Errers in angHd and How to Avoid Them 'OFTEN" AS AN ADJECTIVEL IN rA advertisement pubiished rs C ently to a New York newspaper, the writer spoke of "the often labs ratsoesa of the dress a in lasome groups of men." The use of the word "often" in this manner is incorrect; the dictionaries mantles It, but they call such use "arch " which means outworn, or antiquated. "Often" Is an adverb, or modifler o a verb, and means "on frequent or numerous o casions; many a time; frequently" (Standard Dictionary). It should not be used as an adjective, or a maodifer of a noun, a in the phrase quoted. For "often," as ued there, substitute "frequent," the only adjective that may be used correctly in this sense. In this connection it may be wel to note that the word "often" is fre quently--perhaps even generally mispronounced. The "t" should net be sounded; the correct pronunc·atism is not "of-ten." but "of'a."

During the calendar year 1919. 46 states of the Union expended over $400.000,000) on their rural roads and bridges, the bureau of public roads of the United States Department of Agri culture recently announced. This to tal is made up of the actual cash ex penditures for such items as labor, materials. suplrvision and administra tion. amounting to. $3R9.45l.931, and convict labor and statute labor, the value of which, not definitely known. is estimated at about $132.000,0I0. So far as posiblde, all expenditures on city streets within incorporated towns ia Building an Up-to-Date Highway. and cities and all items of sinking-fund payments or the redemption and inter est payments on road and bridge bonds have been excluded. The road and bridge expenditures for 1919 show an Increase of approxi ar, mately 33 1-3 per cent over those of a 1918 and 70 per cent over those of her 1914. More striking, however, is the ias ncrease in the proportion of the total the funds supervised by the several state is highway departments. In 1918 the ex de penditures by or under the supervision d '0 of the state highway departments ii- amounted to $117,285,268, while the Or- local road funds, over which they exer cised no control whatever, amounted to $168,812,925. In 1919, however, the state highway departments supervised e the expenditure of $200,292,094 as a against the total of $189,163,237 ex- an pended by the local road and bridge in authorities.
