"Then per haps you would not mind going to the store for me." "Certainly not." spoke Unole Wlggily. What do you wish?" "A loaf of bread," replied Miss Fussy Wuazy, "also a box of matches and some sugar and crackers. But don't forget the matches whatever you do." "I won't," promised the bunny uncle, and soon he was hopping along through the woods wondering what sort of an adventure he would have this day. As he wan going along keeping a sharp lookout for the bad fox or the sklllery-scalery alligator with the double Jointed tall. Uncle Wlgglly heard a voice saying: "Oh, dear! I'll never be able to get out from under this stone and grow tall as I ought I've pushed and pushed on It, but I can't raise It. Oh, dear, what a heavy atone!" "Ha! Some one under a stone!" aald Uncle Wlggily to himself. "That cer tainly is bad trouble. I wonder If I cannot help?" The bunny uncle looked all around and down on the ground he saw a flat stone. Underenath It something green and brown was peeping out "Was that you who called T" asked Mr. Longears. "It was." came the answer. "I am a jacK-in-ine-i'uipii plant Villi BM ntlft I started to grow up, as ail plants and iiowers ao wnen summer comes. But when I had raised my head out of the earth I found a big stone over me and ow I can grow no more. I've pushed and pushed until my back aches, but I can't lift the stone." Til do It for you." said Uncle "Wlgglly kindly, and he did, taking It off the Pulpit-Jack. Then the Jack began growing up and he had been held down so long that he grew quite quickly, so that even wBUe Uncle Wlgglly was watching the Jack and his pulpit were almost regular size. A Jack-in-the-Pulplt, you know. Is a queer flower that grows In our woods iMrnieiimes n is canea an Indian turnip, but don't eat it for it Is very biting. The Jack is a tall, green chap, who stands in the middle of his pulpit, which Is like a little pitcher with a curved top to it A pulpit you know, is where some one preaches on Sunday. "Thank you very much for lifting the Btone off so I could grow," said the Jack to Uncle Wigglly. "If ever I can do ou a favor I will." "Oh. pray, don't mention It" i-anilui the rabbit gentleman, with a low bow. "It was a mere pleasure, I assure you." Then the rabbit gentleman hopped on to the store to get the Matches, the crackers, the bread and other things for Nurse Jane. "And I must be sure not to forget the matches." Uncle Wlgglly said to him Belf. "If I did Nurse Jane could not make a fire to cook supper." There was an April shower while Uncle Wlgglly was In the'store. and ho waited for the rain to stop falling be fore he started back to his hollow stump bungalow. Then the sun shone down through the wet leaves of the trees in the woods. Along hopped the bunny uncle and he was wondering what he would havt for supper that night "I hope It's something good," he said, "to make up for not having an adven ture." "Don't you call that an adventure lifting the stone off the Jack-ln-the-Pulplt go he could grow?" asked a bird. Bitting up in a tree. "Well, that was a little adventure," said Uncle Wlgglly. "but I want ons more exciting: a big one." And he Is going to have one In about a minute. Just you wait and you'll hear all about It The sun was shining hotter and hot ter and Uncle Wlgglly was thinking that It was about tune, to get out his extra-thin fur coat when all of a sud den he felt something very hot behind him. "Why, that sun Is really burning," cried the bunny. Then he heard a HtUs ant boy, who was crowllng on the ground, cry out: "Fire! Fire! Fire! Uncle Wlggily-s bundle of groceries Is on fire! FIrcl Fire! "Oh, my!" cried the bunny uncle, as h felt hotter and hotter. "The sun must have set fire to the box of matches. Oh, what shall I dor He dropped his bun dle of groceries and looking around at them he saw, ' surely enough, the matches were on fire. They were blaz ing "Call the fire department Get out the water bugs!" cried the little ant boy. "Fire! Water! Water! Fire!" "That's what I want water," cried the bunny uncle.

M YEARS Ago Today From The Tlerald of Tals Date. 1002. All of the city Is stirred up over the threatened water famine, and only one lonely sprinkler was used to keep down the dust on the streets of the business district today.

Oh, for some water!" Uncle Wlggily and the ant boy ran here and there in the woods looking for a spring of water. But they could find none, and the bread and crackers were Just beginning to burn when a voice cried: "Here is water, Unole WIggllyr "Where? Where?" asked the rabbit gentleman, all excited like. "Where?" "Inside my pulpit," was the answer, and Uncle Wlgglly saw, not far away, the Jack-plant he had helped from under the stone. "When it rained a while ago, my pltcher-pulplt became filled with water," went on Jack. "If you will Just tip mo over, Tsldeways. I'll splash the water on the blazing matches and put them out" "I'll do It!" cried Uncle Wlggily, and he quickly did. The pulpit held water as good as a milk pitcher could and when the water splashed on the fire that fire gave one hiss, like a goose, and went out "Oh, you certainly did me a favor, Mr. Pulpit-Jack," said Uncle Wlgglly. "Though the matches are. burned the bread and crackers are saved, and I can get more matches." which he did, so Nurse Jane could make a fire. So you see Uncle Wlggily had an ad venture after all, and quite an excit ing one, too, and if the lemon drop doesn't fall on the stick of peppermint candy and make It sneeze when It goes to the moving pictures, I'll tell yon next about Uncle Wlgglly nnd the violets Copyright 1916, by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.

AtlaM Addreases School. Atlas Peck, who ranks next to the Wild Onion school teacher in the way of brains, made a talk before the scholars at the Wild Onion school house Friday evening and dwelt at length on the possibilities of the imagi nation, which when anaylzed, means that when a person lets his Imagina tion run away with him he leaves the straight and narrow road of truth and Jumps the fence Into the field of doubt. During the course of his well chosen ) remarks. Atlas stated that his great grandfather used to tell of a man who was several hundred times larger than anybody else, and was Just Ms strong1 as he was large. There was no house big enough for him, so he slept In a large cave and then his feet stuck out and got cold. He said this man had a very bad temper at times and when he ate four or five steers for supper and they didn't agree with him during the night, he would get up next morn ing out of sorts, and would go out and pull up several trees by the roots, or upset a pond or two, and grab mules by the tall and slam them against tho ground. But. on the other hand, when he was feeling good he was in fine, humor and sometimes would laugh so loud all the neighbors thought Is was an earthquake. Now, according to Atlas, this man was a great hand to do anything In his power for his friends, and It so happened one day .L1 .e was an open air meeting of tho citizens to take up the project of straightening a very crooked creek; GERMANY MUST EVIDENCE VALUE OF HER PROMISES Washington.

And they all did as the big man suggested, and the big man went down to the mouth of the creek, caught hold of that end of it and gave it a big pull and the creek stretched out as straight as a string.
