THE next morning was so love ly that many of the little animals who had been up all night waited around the beautiful Mur muring Brook and around Mirror Pond. The porcupines were eating alders along the bank of the brook and as many lillypads' as the could reach. Jimmie Coon andd Teddy Possum were eating fresh water mussels. There was no wind and there were many smooth places in the hrook and dragon flies were darting here and there. Now and then a fish made a rip ple in the smooth surface of the water. You would love to have Keen there. The tall pine trees made shadows so deep that the brown por cupine could hardly be seen, but the white porcupine, Alphonsus, made a great white place in the woods. His white spears seemed td catch all the rays of the sun. If he had any enemy, he had bet ter look out for there was no hiding Alphonse anywhere. But he was not afraid for his sharp spears were al ways ready for an enemy and he shone like,sparkling snow. . Part of the brook had no trees near it but green grass almost to the edge and high clay banks. The overturned canoe lay on the grass at the edge of the woods and BRAGG’S BRAGG’S MARKET. MARKET. GEE!

These old time parties were resources of lotsof fun. Can’t you recall the eager crowd that gathered about the door, . guessing just what each package con tained as the next arrival drove up?

Ranger could sit as still in a canoe as you could yourself. Now you konw how touchy canoes are, you have to sit tight and part your hair in the middle. As soon as Jimmy Coon and Ted dy Possum saw Ranger, and even when they heard little W’illiam’s whistling, • they made themselves scarce and climbed the first tree. Ranger always made them nervous. Ranger made lots of the little peo . pie of the Great Forest nervous, of course there wasn’t a bit of harm in Ranger and Teddy Possum and Jim mie Coon didn’t mind him at all, but they always climbed a tree, the near est one —Jimmy Coon always anx ious for a good view and he could see Ranger better from a high place, you see. - As they came along the edge of the brook little William stopped short and watched the water. : “Gee W’hiz,” Fred, did you see that Pickerel jump?” “Where- where?” said Fred, look ing everywhere but the right place. “Stupid, in the water! where would a fish jump?
