OF COURSE Peter Rabbit had no
business in Farmer Brown’s gar
den. He knew it. He knew that the
delicious plants growing there were
not meant for him. For a long, long
time after he had been made so ill
by eating cabbage leaves on which
poison had been put to kill hugs he
had kept away from that tempting
garden. In fact, for some time he
hadn’t wanted to go near it. Rut time
changes one's feelings just as it changes
everything else. It was so with I’eter.
It was so long since he had been so
ill that he had half forgotten how ter
rihly he had felt.
So sometimes when he passed that
garden on his way to the Old Orchard
he would pause and stare at It long
ingly. He would sit up and work his
wabbly little nose, and the- delicious
odors whicii tickled it would make his
mouth water so that sometimes he
would have to run his very hardest to
keep from yielding to the temptation
to visit that garde){ and try some of
those plants growing there.
As time went on he got in the habit
of sitting a little longer each night
to stare through the fence into the
garden and to sniff the delicious
smells. Each night it was a little hard
er to go on. The longer he looked and
the more he smelled the less danger
there seemed. Until he had eaten that
poison, which hadn’t been meant for
him at all, no harm had ever come
to him in that garden.
“I ktjow enough now,” thought
Peter, “not to eat poisoned leaves.
It is safe, perfectly' safe, for me to
go there. I wouldn’t eat a thing. I
Just want to see whnt it is like over
there, and if things have changed
much since I was there.”
s “Fie, Peter, fie!” whispered a small
voice Inside. “You know very well
that you are safer outside that garden.
You know you couldn’t resist stuffing
yourself with the things growing
“I could, too!” protested Peter. “1
could go all through that garden and
not taste a single thing.”
“You couldn’t do anything of the
kind. You know you couldn’t Better
keep out of temptation. If I were you
I wouldn’t ever come so near the gar
den," whispered the small voice.
Peter scowled. He didn’t like that
small voice. It was forever telling him
not to do things that he very much
wanted to do. “I’m going over there
just once, so there!” declared Peter.
“If you go once and nothing hap
pens you’ll go every night, and then
something may happen. Keep away,''
warned the little voice.
But Peter tried not to hear that
small voice. He hopped a few steps
nearer the fence on the edge of the
garden. He looked and listened. It
was very, very quiet over In there.
Peter hopped a few steps nearer. “I’ll
just stick ray head inside and see how
It looks,” said he to himself, “then
I’ll go on to the Old Orchard.”
So Peter poked his head through
an opening In the fence. My, how good
it did smell in there! Peter’s wabbly
little nose wabbled faster than ever.
“Cabbages!” muttered Peter. “And
beets! Turnips, ns I live! Oh, m.v
goodness, I certainly smell carrots!”
Peter really didn't know just when
his body did follow his head through
thnt opening in the fence. But it did,
, for here he was right in the middle
of Farmer Brown’s garden. My, how
things had grown since he had been
there! He hopped this way and he
hopped that way. He took a nip here
and a bite there. The little voice in
side was still now. It had given up.
So presently Peter came to the far
corner where Farmer Brown’s Boy
had dug that deep pit. Peter stared
at the great pile of sand on one side.
He didn’t see the great hole; all he
saw was the pile of sand. “Now what
can that be for?” thought Peter, and
went a little nearer. At first he was
suspicious of it. After a little he made
up his mind that It was perfectly
harmless. It was nothing but a pile
of sand. He would climb up to the
top. It would be a splendid place from
which to look all over the garden.
Up Peter scrambled and sat down on
the very top. Then for the first time
he saw the black pit below him. He
stared down Into it wondering what
it could be for. Suddenly the sand un
der him began to slide. Hastily Peter
turned to get back. The sand slid
faster and Peter felt himself slipping
down, down toward that black pit
With all his might he scrambled up,
for he was right on the very edge of
that pit. It was a narrow escape, a
very narrow escape.

WE SEEK so much for sympathy,
And some receive—yet presently
We find that we must take our cares,
Our sudden griefs, our own affairs,
Some other place a bit apart,
Some sanctuary of the heart,
Some private place to men unknown,
And fight the battle out alone.
■Only alone we dare to tell
Ourselves the truth, and measure well
The reason and the circumstance—
For few misfortunes come by chance
Only alone we dare to name
The culprit. If ourselves to blame,
Or tench our better selves to plead
Forgiveness for another's deed.
We try our cases in the court
Of friends, and there the truth dis
But when we stand before the bar
Of conscience, speak things as they
Oft sympathy is hard to find.
Or, found, is often far too kind.
The care is ours, the cure our own,
And we shall find it, but alone.

THE making of a good cup of tea,
which is such a simple and easy
thing to do, is often spoiled by stand
ing. The best pot for tea is of earth
en ware. It should be scalded and hot
and when the tea (a teaspoonful. for
each person) is put into the hot pot,
pour freshly boiled water over it and
allow it to stand three to five minutes
to draw, then serve at once. For those
who do not care for the tea so strong
the freshly boiled water should be pro

these days for the tea. Jams, citrus

o into Ball when putting. a a
Tales of Walter Travis’ ability
with a putter have become legen
dary. His methods, however, are as
efficacious today as then. In lining
up the putt Travis invariably picked
out a spot in front of the ball In line
with the hole, over which to putt He
would then relegate this point to his
subconscious mind and promptly de
vote his attention to stroking the ball
with the necessary power to reach
the hole. Travis' actual stroke In put
ting showed his painstaking attention
to the game. He used to imagine
he was driving a tack into the ball on
each stroke, a process calling for ex
treme accuracy. The blow, In effect
not unlike the blow of a hammer,
would follow through on line.
His judgment on greens was most
uncanny. On the sloping greens, with
the hole placed on the incline, he
would gauge the barrow accurately.
Here a fast ball was needed in pref
erence to a slow putt, for the latter
was certain to be more affected by
the roll nnd harder to Judge. Hit
straight at the cup with little momen
tum, it was almost certain to roll off
line downhill.

Glimpsing through the State Reg
ister for 1868 the other day we came
across an Item which recorded the
adoption of the McGutfey Readers in
the Springfield public schools. As
we recall It, these famous readers
were retained in the schools here
until the late nineties and possibly
a few years later. In any event,
they are held in affectionate mem
ory by whole generations of former
school children, although the young
er element today knows almost noth
ing about them, due to the vast
changes which have occurred in the
system of elementary education In
the last quarter century.
Now. we rend, Dr. William Holmes
McGuffey, the noted American edu
cator who was the author of this
famous series, is to have a monu

number of the books were prepared.

The first McGuffey Readers made
their appearance in 1836, a series of
six being published a few years
later. They '-were revised five
tinges, the last revision being copy
righted In 1903. Up until a few
years ago they were still being sold
in certain sections of the country,
but the main period of their popular
use extended from the time of Mar

that 00-year period they attained

Bronchial Troubles
Need Creomulsion
Bronchial troubles may lead to some
thing serious. You can stop them now
with Creomulsion, an emulsified creosote
that is pleasant to take. Creomulsion is a
new medical discovery with two-fold ac
tion; it soothes and heals the inflamed
membranes and inhibits germ growth.
.Of all known drugs, creosote is recog
nized by high medical authorities as one
of the greatest healing agencies for per
sistent coughs and colds and other forms
of throat troubles. Creomulsion contains,
in addition to creosote, other healing ele
ments which soothe and heal the infected
membranes and stop the irritation and in
flammation, while the creosote goes on to
the stomach, is absorbed into the blood,
attacks the seat of the trouble and checks
the growth of the germs.
Creomulsion is guaranteed satisfactory
in the treatment of persistent coughs and
colds, bronchial asthma, bronchitis and
other forms of respiratory diseases, and
is excellent for building up the system
after colds or flu. Money refunded if any
coughorcold, no matter of howlongstand
ing, is not relieved after taking according
todirections. Askyourdruggist. (Adv.)
