The fact remains, however, that m any parents give these beverages to
their little folks and allow their use in older children at a time when physical

The drug, caffeine, in coffee and tea retards growth and interferes with
school progress. Disturbances of eyesight, headaches, nervousness, irritabil

the damage often occurs at the most impressionable period of life.

A total stranger passed through Hog
wallow yesterday tacking up some soap
advertisements. Several of our leading
citizens. Including the postmaster, took
exceptions to this suggestion and or
dered the man to move on.
The mail carrier left the postoffice
this morning bound for Tlckville. By
pushing on the lines he believes he can
make the run in a couple of days.
One of the wheels ran off of Tobe
Moseley's wagon while he was coming
down Musket Ridge yesterday. It rolled
on ahead and when he got home it was
leaning against the stable.
A crow has been setting on the hav

"If you think I ought to have one, why
I'll get It"
"Oh, all right." said Billie, sort of
funny-like. "Do jou know how to spin
a top. Uncle Wiggily!"
"Well, I used to when l was a young
rabbit, and I guess I can remember a
little about it. Come alone and help
me pick out a nice one."
So the bunny uncle and the squirrel
boy went on and on through the woods
to the top store kept by Mrs. Spin
Spider, who had a little toy shop in
which she worked when she was not
spinning silk for tho animal ladies'
"One of your best tops for myself,
if you please,? said Uncle Wiggily, as
he and Billie went into the toy store.
Mrs. Spin Spider put a number of tops
on the counter.
"That's the kind jou want!" cried
Billie. as he saw a big red one. and
poimee nis paw at It.
"Try it and see how It spins," said
the bunny man.
Billie wound the string on the top.
and then, giving It a throw, while he
kept hold of one end of the cord, he
made the top spin as fast as anything
on the floor of the store. Around and
around whizzed the top. like the electric
fan on Uncle Wlggily's airship.
"Is that a good top for me. BUlleT"
asked Mr. Longears.
"A very good top," said the squirrel
bo v. "Fine!"
"Then I'll take it." said Uncle Wie
gily, and he paid for It and walked
out Billie following.
If the little chattery squirrel chap
was disappointed at not getting a top
for himself, he said nothing about It
which rag very brave and good. I
think. He Just walked along until
they came to a nice smooth dirt place
in the woods, and Uncle Wiggily said:
"Let me see you spin my top, Billie
I want to watch you and see how it's
done how you wind the string on, how
you throw It down to the ground and
all that Tou Just give me some les

So, while the top was spinning i-ery

it on his paw. quickly put it over on
"Ouch'" It tickles'" cried the bunny
uncle, sort of giggling like.
"Yes, a little," laughed Billie, "but
I don't mind that Now I'll show jou
now to pick It up."
Once more he spun the top. and ha
was just going to pick It up when, all
of a sudden, a growling voice cried:
"Ah. ha' Again I am in luck! A
rabbit and a squirrel ! Ist me see;
which shall I take first?" And out
from behind a stump popped a big bear.
It was the same one that Uncle Wig
gllv had hit on the nose with Johnnie's
marble, about a week before.
"Oh, my!" said the bunny man.
"Oh. dear!' chattered Billie.
"Surprised to see me, aren't you?"
asked the bear sticking out hla tongue.
"A little." answered Uncle Wiggily,
"but I guess we'd better be getting
along. Billie. rick up my top and coma
"Oh. -h' Not so fait'" growled he

me. You'll be going off with mo to

grabbed hold of Uncle WlEglly and
Billie. Tbev tried to get away, but
could not. and the bear was Just going
to carry them off. when he saw the
spinning top whizzing on the ground.
"What's that red thing?" h asked.
"X top Billie just picked out for mc,"
said Uncle Wiggily.
"Would vou like to have It spin on
your paw?" asked Billie. blinking his
eyes at Uncle Wiggily. funny like.
"Oh. I might as well, before I carry
vou off to mv den," said the bear, sort
of careless like and indifferent. "Spin
the top on my pav "
So Billie picked up the spinning ton
and put It on the bear's broad, flat paw.
And no aooncr was it there, whizzing
around, than the bear cried:
"Ouch' Oh. dear' How it tickles.
Ha! Ha' Ha1 Ho' Ho! Ho! It makes
me laugh. It makes me laugh. It
makes me giggle! Oouch! Oh. dear!"
And then he laughed so hard that he
dropped the top and turned a somer

woods, leaving Billie and Uncle Wig

said the bunny uncle as the bear ran

ground where the bear had dropped it.
"My top' No that's sours." said tho
