(Continued from yesterday.)
Davie Dear’s seventh birthday
came at last. It was four days off,
and then three days off, and then
two, and then one, and then, one
sunshiny morning, Davie was
awakened by a soft kiss on his right
eye and a soft kiss on his left eye,
and a voice that cried merrily:
"Good morning-, son, and a happy
birthday!”
The word “birthday" made Davie
open his eyes very suddenly. Sit
ting up in bed and rubbing them
with his lists, he looked eagerly at
.Mother Dear and exclaimed:
gave an entertainment last night in
l tie parish hall. Frank A. Nenry and
John T. Burke, who coached the or
ganization in its recent minstrel,
were guests at the affair.
An entertaining program was of

"Is it really and truly here for
sure?’’
"Keally and truly for sure,” de
clared .Mother Dear, giving him an
other kiss. “Aren’t you going to
get up?”
Davie's eyes .sparkled. “I just
guess I am,” he cried. “Where
are my clothes, mother? Am 1
going to be all dressed up ’cause
it's my birthday?”
"Not right now," said Mother
Dear. “Here's Nellie! She'll help
you to bathe and dress.”
"No,” decided Davie; "I want to
do it all myself, even the hardest
buttons, ’cause I’m seven now, and
that’s very old, Isn’t it? Nellie,
you mustn't help me.” And he
sprang out of bed and scurried
across the hall to the bathroom,
with nurse Nellie following, to
make sure that he washed properly.
"You don’t have to watch me,” he
cried gaily. "I'm even washing be
hind my ears, so's I'll be as clean
as anything. I'm going to do it
every day, Nellie, and you won't
have to help me any more, ever.”
Nurse Nellie decided to accept
this statement, though she had her
doubts, for she knew very well that
small boys were never very fond of
■water—that is, bathroom water.
Water in a brook or river, in which
one could run and jump and learn
to swim, was quite different.
In a few moments Davie came
from the bathroom with face red
and shining. Proudly he put on his
clothes, and if he had trouble with
the buttons he never said a word,
because he was afraid that Nellie
would insist upon helping.
He sat on the floor and pulled on
his stockings, fastening his garters
and lacing his shoes, puffing
mightily during the process.
Nurse Nellie watched ills efforts
with ah amused smile. The tin cap
slipped from one of the strings, and
Davie's face grew very red as ho
kept moistening his finger and
twisting the fraying end to a point.
Ail things come to an end, how
ever, and at last the shoes were
laced and knotted securely, so se
curely that that night, when Davie
was going to bed, Nurse Nellie had
to cut the strings with the scissors.
“Now!” Davie jumped merrily
to his feet. “I’m ready! Did I get
a lot of presents, Nellie?’’
Nellie handed him the brush and
comb, and watched while he
smoothed his hair.
i am every single thing myself,
didn’t I?" Davie ran toward the
stairs, vastly excited. “Did I get
u lot, Nellie?” he repeated, but
Nurse Nellie only smiled wisely,
saying, “Wait and see.”
Down the stairs clumped Davie.
Behind him came Dorothy, who had
heard him talking to Nellie and
wildly scrambled out of bed and
into her clothes, all eagerness to
sec the birthday surprises.
Father and Mother Dear were at
the breakfast table. The children
slipped into their places and looked
anxiously about, but not a present
could they see.
Their faces were puzzled as they
began to eat their oranges. Doro
thy cautiously peeped under the ta
ble, but no gifts were there. Then
she glanced at the sideboard and
serving table. No lumpy packages
were in evidence.
Davie began to wriggle. lie
looked at Father and Mother Dear,
but they were eating their break
fasts as calmly as if tills was just
an ordinary day.
“Is this my birthday or not?” he
asked, at. last.
“Of course it Is,” said Father
Dca r.
“I’m seven, then," announced Da
vie. with shining eyes.
“Of course." said Mother Dear.
In a moment Davie's face grew
long again.
“Well, if it’s my birthday, and
I'm seven, where—where are the—
the things?”
“Things?” Father Dear elevated
his eyeshrows. “What tilings?”
Now Davie grew very red, in
deed. (
“Why, my birthday things—my
presents.’’
“Yes," chimed in Dorothy, lean
ing forward, “his presents! O’
course he's to have presents on his
birthday!”
Father Dear put down his coffee
cup.
“So?” said he, inquiringly, “how
interesting!”
Davie's eyes began to fill, and
when Mother Dear saw this she
leaned toward him.
“We're not going to tease any
more, sonny boy,” she declared,
“indeed you have some presents,
but. they’re all in the library, and
you’re not to see them until after
breakfast. Father and I thought
it best.”
Upon which Davie cheered up
amazingly, and began to eat quick
ly, so eager was he to discover Just
what the library contained.

PRIMITIVE STAGING.
Comparing the stage conveniences
of the present day with the make
shifts existing a generation ago,
Robert Mantcll tells of. the inconven
iences of his early experience as the
ghost in “Hamlet.”
"One night I was playing the part
of the ghost,” he says, “and as I was
not very certain of myself the stage
manager had the lamps turned down
unusually low. As a matter of fact
they were so low that while I was on
the stage they went out. Of course,
they had to be lighted again, and the
stage manager sent out a stage hand
to do it. I had to remain where I
was, and the ghost's funeral lines
were recited, while a man in civilian
clothes slowly and painstakingly
made his way across the darkened
stage, lighting the lamps as he went.”
HEARTH' AND HOME

Let me thank you for copying the
poem and sending it to me. It has
already been published.
Renovating a Baby Carriage
Dear Margery Boon:
Will you please tell me how I can
made an old reed Pullman baby
carriage look like new with little
expense? Will it be necessary for
me to remove the upholstering?
Thanking you in advance.
MRS. T. G. H.
First clean the carriage with a
lye solution, to remove the old var
nish and dirt. The best way to
apply It, I am told, is with a small
dish-mop. Do not get your hands
in the mixture. Rub the carriage
until It is perfectly clean. Let dry,
and apply one of the good shellacs
or enamels that may be found in
any reliable paint store.
It will be wise to remove the up
holstery before attempting to clean
the carriage.
A Note of Thanks
Dear Miss Doon:
X thank you for the information
about Bronx Park and for your help
In obtaining the poem I requested.
I also thank Bertha K. and Mary D.
P. H. E. G.
you’re very welcome.
On Massaging the Scalp
Dear Miss Margery Doon:
I am an interested reader of your
column and wish you would help
me.
Could you please tell me the
proper movements for massaging
the scalp? I do not wish to try this
without first consulting you. as my
hair is very thin and I would not
like to ruin it altogether. At my
forehead my hair Is like fine grass
coming out, but it never seems to
get any longer. My forehead is also
very high.
Thanking you in advance, -
IRENE.
Every night the scalp should be
massaged until it is ‘'loose” and
pliable. This is done by kneading It
with the tips of the fingers, letting
the motion come from the knuckles
and not from the tips, which are
worked back and forth in one spot,
and then in another, and another,
until the entire scalp has been thor
oughly gone over. Do not rub the
fingers over the scalp.
Here is a. tonic to use in connec
tion with the massage treatment:
One pint bay rum.
One-half pint clear alcohol.
One-half ounce castor oil.
One-half ounce tincture of can
th a rides.
Mix thoroughly and massage into
the scalp at night.
An Egg Shampoo
Dear Miss Doon:
Will you kindly tell me what part
of the. egg to use for a shampoo?

bo used for embroidering this design
on linen, lawn or any wash material,
as it launders better than silk.

Here are two egg shampoos.
Take your choice. I think you did
not rinse your hair thoroughly, or,
perhaps, the egg was not beaten
sufficiently before it was mixed with
the water. Either would make the
hair sticky:
Egg Shampoo—Use lemon juice
and the white of egg. Break the
white of egg into a wash bowl. Add
a pint of cold water and beat with
the hand until frothy. Add the
juice of a lemon. If you have much
hair two lemons and more water
may be used. Rub thoroughly into
the scalp and rinse twice in cold
water. This is particularly good for
an itching scalp, I am told.
Egg Shampoo No. 2—Beat the
yolks of two eggs in two cupfuls of
warm rain or distilled water: add
a teaspoonful of borax and apply
to the hair with warm water. Rinsa
three or four times.
Wolf Tone’s Grave
My dear Miss Boon:
In response to Mrs. S.'s request
for the words of “Wolf Tone’s
Grave,’’ I am sending them to you.
As yours is my favorite column, it
gives me great pleasure to do so.
If at any time I can help any of
your correspondents, I will be
pleased. JOSEPH. B.
WOLF TONE’S GRAVE.
In Bodenstown church yard
There Is a green grave;
And wildly around It
The winter winds rave.
Small shelter, I ween,
Have the ruined wall there.
When the storm sweeps down
On the plains of Kildaro.
Once I stood on the sod
That lies over Wolf Tone; .
And I thought how he perished
In prison alone.
His friends unavenged.
And Ills country unfreed.
“Oh, bitter,” I said
"Is the Patriot’s meed.”
For in him the heart
Of a woman combined,
A heroic life
And a governing mind.
A martyr for Ireland,
His grave has no stone.
His name seldom named,
And his virtues unknown.
As I stood there 1 heard
Both the voice and the tread,
Of a band that came into
The home of the dead.
They carried no corpse.
Nor they carried no stone,
But they stopped
When they came
To the grave of Wolf Tone.
There were studnts, and peasant*.
The wise and the brave,
And an old man who knew him,
From cradle to grave.
And children who thought me
Hard hearted, for they.
On that sanctilled soil.
Were forbidden to play.
But the old man who saw
I was mourning there said,
"We’ve come, sir, to weep
Where young Wolf Tone is laid.
And we’re going to build him
A monument too,
A plain one, yet lit for
The simple and true.”
My heart over-flower
As I grasped his old hand.
And I blessed him, and
Blessed every one of his band,
Sweet, sweet, ’tis to find.
That such faith can remain,
To the cause and the man, i
So long vanquished and slain.
In Bodenstown church yard
There is a green grave,
And wildly around it.
The winter winds rave,
Far better they suit him
The ruin and gloom,
Until Ireland, a nation,
Can .build him a tomb.
Scorch on Light Material
Dear Miss Doon:
Kindly inform me how to lighten
a scorched spot on a half-wool
material and win the thanks of,
HARRY K.
Mix Fuller's earth, powdered soap
and vinegar to a paste and spread
over the scorch. After drying the
plaster should be brushed away
and the application repeated if
necessary.

Happiness in the End
__ 11
One cold winter day in January a
little girl was walking along a dark
street in New York. She was about
eight years old. Her dress was torn
and she had no shoes on. As she
crossed the street an auto hit her and
she fell. A lady jumped out of the
auto and took her into it.
When the little girl awoke she was
In a beautiful room and a handsome
lady was standing over her. “Am l
in heaven, or are you my mother?”
she asked.
“I am your mother, dear: tell me
where you went that day I brought
you to the circus?” asked the mother.
"A lady came out of a tent and
took me with her. She learned me to
dance, and beat me when I did not do
it right,” said the girl. "Today is
your birthday, and 1 was looking for
It, so it is happiness in the end,” said
the mother.

Forgive and Forget
BY DANIEL IS. McKENNKY
(Continued from yesterday).
"Were you interested?”
"Very much," was the enthusiastic
reply.
"I’m glad of that," said Mr. Dean,
with an approving nod. “Now it will
ho a simple matter to make a fair
scholar of you. You must come here
every school day and pass the after
noon with ns. You appear to lie a
good sort of hoy and Lucy needs a
companion. She's an unselfish child
and doesn't complain; but I’m sure
she is lonely,’ nevertheless. You see,
my hoy, I was compelled to give up
business on account of my health and
come here to live among the pines.
Lucy Insisted upon coming with me.”
This was a red letter day in Tom
my’s calendar; for he had made
friends who were destined to have a
marked influence over his character.
Every afternoon during that fall and
winter lie could be found at the bun
galow, studying under Lucy’s gentle
tutelage and listening to her father’s
instructive reading. He looked for
ward to these hours with delight; but
there were times when he despaired
of himself. Although he made rapid
progress in reading, he found arithme
tic difficult. As for writing, he be
lieved that he would never be able to
train his clumsy hand to form a let
ter, his muscles were so cramped and
stiffs '
There were days, too, when he was
compelled to remain at homo on ac
count of the snow. When the criss
cross fences of the farmers were com
pletely buried under the white mantle,
his grandfather would send him forth
into the woods to draw firewood
home over the hard snow crust. But
the old man never guessed how the
ambitious boy prollted by these ex
Clintons, carrying a school book but
toned under his jacket to study when
he had a spare moment. It was ac
quiring knowledge under difficulties;
but Tommy persevered: and so, when
spring arrived and Miss Bushrod an
nounced one day that her father, the
Squire, was coming to examine her
pupils, he was prepared for the
ordeal.
Squire Bushrod was a tall, gaunt,
hardfeatured man of commanding
presence. He drove lip to the school
house about the noon hour, ^ied his
horse to a tree and entered.
“Good day, children!” he said, with
a nod.
"Good day, Squire!” echoed the chil
dren.
He lolled back in the chair Ills
daughter placed for him, crossed his
booted legs and looked around the
school room with a broad smile.
"Boys and gals,” he began, "lamin'
can only be got whilst we’re young.
l>on't forgit: that. When we grow up
our chanst to git book knowledge Is
over. Tlyi responsibilities of life has
to be tuk up and that’s an end on it.”
He paused a moment to regain his
breath and resumed:
“Now J’m going to ask ye a few
questions in 'rithmetlc—the most Im
portant branch of book lamin’, as it
be the science o’ flggerin’. Nobody
can git along In this world without
liggerin’, make a note on that. The
sailor has to ligger on the weather,
the farmer on his crops, and, when it
comes to us Harpsweil folks, why we
has to figger so close to make both
ends meet that we actually git down
to fractures. Now then, supposing
that ye had three eggs to feed nine
people on, how would ye do it?”
