"You had better take jour airship,"
said Mother Goose "A Jumping cow
would be found up In the air. I think"
"I think so myself," said Uncle Wig
gllj So he hurried back to the hollow
stump bungalow and got out his air
ship Tn that lie sailed over the woods
and fields, looking for the jumping cow
' Do. please ask lier to hurrj- back."
said Mother Goose "For she has all
the milk for supper, and Tommie
Tucker and the Children of the Old
Woman who Lives in a Shoe, are so
hungry thej- don't know what to do"
"I'll get her," promised Uncle Wiggily-
On and on he sailed In his airship.
But he could not see the jumping cow.
Up high he sailed and down low, and
finallv. when he came close to the
ground, near the place where Sammlo
Littletail. the buj rabbit lived with his
sister Susie and his father and mother.
Uncle Wiggily heard Jollie Longtail.

went like this
Hi diddle, diddle'
The cat's in the fiddle'
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed
To see so much sport
And the dish ran away with the
"Hello, what's that" cried Untie
Wiggily. bringing his airship to n stop
and sailing down to earth. "What cow
Is that Jollie, that jumped over the
"Oh. Mother Goose's cow," answered
the little mouse boy. "You see, Joie
Kat. tho little kitten boy. crawled in
side the fiddle, having a game of tag
with Tommie. his brother. And when
Jack Spratt tried to play music on the
fiddle it made such a funny noise that
tho cow, who was waiting for Little
Tlnv Blue to blow his horn. gave a big
jump, and away up over the moon sho
went That's the way It was," said
"I see," answered Uncle Wiggily,
"Well, In that case. I suppose I must go
sailing up to the moon to find the
jumping cow She is needed to bring
home the milk for Little Tommie
.lust then along came Mother Goose
"Oh, look'" she cried, pointing her
broom up to the sky "There's my nice
jumping cow now She's falling down
from over the moon. Oh. she'll break
her horns, surely. Oh, dear! What
shall I do""
"Do Do nothing," said Uncle Wig
gilv. kindly "I'll do it myself. See.
1 ha e my airship, I'll sail up and catch
the Jumping cow before she has time
to fall. Then everything will be all

Oh please do'" begged Mother
Up in his clothes basket airship went

gentleman. Up and up and up.
The cow was falling
"Oh. dear'" cried Mother Goose, on
the earth below "The cow should have
known better than to Jump over the
"I think so mvself," said the Man In
the Moon, "tried to stop her, but I
"eer mind." said Uncle Wiggily.
"It will be all right. I'm sure."
Then he steered his airship right
under the falling cow, who was no
longer jumping Instead, she was sail
ing toward the earth, with a piece of
reen cheese on one horn She reallv
hart jumped over the moon, but she
slipped and that's how the green cheese
got on h r horn
"Here ott are'" cried Uncle Wigghly,
in his Jollv oice Just like a trollev car

Then the jumping cow landed gentlv
in his airship and he brought her down
to earth as lightly as a feather and the
cow was just In time to bring the milk
for Little Tommie Tucker's supper.
So this teaches you that Uncle Wig

carrots and having the rheumtatism,
and if the egg beater doesn't skip out to
whip the carpets to earn five cents for

U. S. Women Organize
League for Selr-Derense
Guarantee That if Men of America Will Protect Their Country and Their
Homes From Oppression and Treachery They Will Look
After Their Own Safety.
by ui.Lt tm:ci.i:it wilcoX.
ANEW league has been organ
ized by American women. It
is called the American Wom
an's League for Self-Defence.
Its motto is: American Women First
Its object is to educate our women
to the highest standard of health,
purity, efficiencj-. proficiency, self
reliance, to take the place of husbands
and fatlini-R when necessity reauires
It Its platform Is non-polltlral, non-
racial, non-color and non-creeu.
Its founders are Miss Ida Lbsworth
Lowberand Mrs. H Vandercook-Browne
its adviser is Mrs Lee G. Boardman
and Its secretary Miss Ida Vera Slm
onton. Here IB what one of its members has
to say of the league, speaking of what
war has taught woman:
"It proves primarily that women
must depend largely upon themselves
for adequate protection. It shows con
clusively that governments, especially
in cases of invasion, are powerless to
protect their women while their fight
ing men are at the front
"It demonstrates that the women
themseles are no match for the un
healthy local rabble that unable to
enlist plunder and pillage when op
portunity offers. It is a well known
fact that weeks of prolonged hardships
foster a mental recklessness that de
stroj's all decent sense of consideration
and abnormalism precludes the bet
terminded in an Invading army from
shielding women from Its own rampant
tViiraim Cannot Ilely Upon "Hnn.
"Clearly woman cannot rely upon
man (o save her In war time, she must
find her defence, as she finds her dan
ger, solel within herself This em
phasizes the necessity for the 'weaker
sex' becoming, not the 'stronger.' but
a 'strong sex." Surel-. If it comes to
finalities, a quick, clean, honorable
death from n. well-aimed bullet is
preferable to the lingering horror
which comes of considering one's self
