I COMPANY FOR LUNCH HE hOUM where Bob and Jack apead the' summer was on the edge of a beautiful bis woodi and a wide meadow, . The boy . thought that a moat convenient place for a summer home for. you see. when they wanted to play under tree or climb trees, there the trees were, right by the front door of their home. And when they wanted to fly kites or run races or anything like that, there was the flat, beautiful meadow, right at the back door. , . ' But there was one thing they eould da on the meadow that they never even thought of doing when they moved into the house. They could watch the aeroplanes sail by. Now when the boys and their parents moved Into this particular house, they didn't know that one of the U. S. aviation fields was only about ten miles away. 8o when they began to notice aeroplanes go by, two and three and sometimes ten a day. they began to -wonder and to Inquire. And then they found that those planes they saw were mall planes and practice planes and all sorts of planes from the field not so far away. ,, , Bob and Jack used to sit on the fence at the edge of the meadow and watch and wish that the planes would fly close enough and low enough for tbem to signal the men aboard but the planes never did. Always they went by so far over head that they looked like beautiful big birds only the noise they made was a . lot more than the noise any bird makes in fly ing, that was sure! "You boys stay out In that meadow so much," laughed their mother one day. "that t think I'll give you your lunch and let you stay out there all the time!" Of course, she meant it as a Joke, but her word. gave Bob an Idea. - ' - He thought and thought and finally decided he wouldn't tell anybody, not even Jack, till he had thought about parts and made everything Just in ship shape according to directions. And. of course, that was very interest ing work. Even theJoys' father Look! -Jack! Look his Idea long enough to know Just whether It would wlork. Instead of telling, be bagan to make an airship of his own. from a pattern he got in a book. He whittled the wooden parts, and glued the paper ltie joijiok toon STUFFED PRUNES y rolled in sugar, but they are every bit ..

If desired these prunes may thence Wrap each prune In a small piece of oiled paper and put four or Ave In the1 lunch box for a dessert. It's Coming Down thought it was, and he helped all Bob would let him which wasn't so very much, for Bob believed in doing everything himself if he could. One fine day the airship was finished and the family and the two or three boy friends near by. all went out to the edge of the meadow to see if it would really fly as Bob promised It would. The day was perfect wind enough to take it up. but not enough to make bad currents of air or tugging at the string. A little help from his friends, a couple .of bad starts and away the airship flew! Higher and higher as fact as Bob could let out the string she went till the little ship seemed like a bird Just as the bl! one had. Bob waa very proud. ' While the toy airship was high to the air. one of the really-truly air-, ships went sailing by. fast. oh. so very' fast, and lower than any aeroplane that Bob had ever seen pass their! meadow. Bob looked andllooked. and sure enough, he could actually tee the man driving the plane, actualljr see him looking over the edge! "Could the man see his own airship?" Bob wondered. ; - " ' And from that minute, the bis; idea grew and grew till it Just had to come true. Bob thought. Bo the very next morning he set to work. He gathered a lot of old newspapers and went out into the meadow. First he went alone, but Jack followed and Bob let him stay "though he didn't ex plain a bit what he was doing and Jack, for the life of him. couldnt make head nor tail of the funny busi ness. The day was hot and 'not a breath of air stirring. "Just perfect!" bod declared hanDilv. the Jack confessed that he liked a breeze better. Keeping hi eye on the sky all the wlule. Bob began to spread out the newspapers he had brought. One long line, then a funny curved lints such a crazy way to act Jack thought when he had that lovely new airship ne might be flying. "What you going to make now?" asked Jack finally, when he grew more and more puzzled." did mother say you had to spread "em all out to dry? They don't look wet. "They aren't, silly," laughed Bob. excitedly, "though wetting them would be a good idea for a windy day. This Isn't work and it isn't play. It's an in vitation' ' . ' . That puzzled little Jack more than ever and he decided he could find a pleasanter game for a hot day so he went up to the sand pile and left his industrious brother all alone with his papers. "That's all right." said Bob to him self approvingly as he looked at the spread out papers. Now I'll start the next. And if I don't get it all done today maybe he'll remember today when I finish the rest tomorrow." And then he worked away harder than ever, at the funny Job of spread ing papers in long, queer looking lines on that smooth meadow. . . . , . He was still hard at It when the whirr of a motor told him. that an aeroplane was. coming. He atopped his work and strained his eyes .to see the pilot, but though he looked hard and though the plane flew rather low. not a sign of anybody did he see. Never mind." he said comfortably. "it may take several days, "but I can do Itl know." So the next morning he1 worked at his papers till the plane went by, and the next and the next and still nothlrig happened and still he wouldn't explain to anybody what he was trying to do. The morning of the fourth day he finished his paper work early and was getting ready to fly the airship kite for Jack when the aeroplane motor sounded in the distance. Not so far away this time It was, and getting louder and nearer every minute. - -a ' "Kinda scares me, it does, when it comes so near,", said little Jack, and he stood close to his bigger brother. exclaimed Bob. ex Jack! Look! It's "It's a coming! cltedly. "Look! coming down!" And sure enough! The great bird like plane that for days had passed over the meadow, was circling lower and lower right over their own meadow! The boys could hardly be lieve their eyes. Lower. Lower. Still lower. They could see the lettering: they could see the patches on the wings; the man in the pit and every little part of the machine. And still It came lower, down till It came to a stop on the ground ia the middle of their very own meadow. The driver got out of the plane and called to the boys. "Tour father home?" he asked. i es, - replied bod and he was so excited he could hardly say the word. "Ask him if he 11 help me a bit." added the driver. "I need some help and' I don't believe I'll have to go clear back to the school. The boys' father iieard the talking and he and mother came hurrying out of the house to see If they were need ed.' The slight repair was easily made and the driver got ready to start again. "You're not going off right at lunch time without a bite, are you?" asked Boh's mother hospitably. "You know 5 VTs7 v ev 4 ls - -.- A U ' 1T9 REATHES there the man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said," I want to do whate'er I can To banish all the ills of man? We hope not many such exist; That none the impulse will resist To swat the Fly that insect dread That's always hovering round our head. See how, just come from dirty stable, He dances on our breakfast table ! how these two boys would like you to stay." "Well I don't care If I do," said the driver. "I'd been thinking I got to ac cept your invitation and to tell the truth, madam, that's partly why I stopped right here in this good meadow." "My invitation?" asked Mrs. Rey nolds much puzzled, "before. now do you mean?" f Bob flushed and said, "my invita tion, he means mother. Each day I've been asking him to come." "But I don't understand." said his mother. "Well, he's a smart chap If he's done it alone." said the aviator. "Every day he has bad letters spread out on the grass of the meadow. The first day or two I didn't think much of it, but as it went on I was sure he meant it for me. The letters spelled '"Please stop here for lunch. And so I did." And that's how it happened that Boh had such fine company for lunch.

Scaew 7b T . 5ee As A ttAKiNO Fon C. EVERY BOY is familiar with the Boy Scouts and very few boys do not at one time or other belong to a troop. One of the requirements to obtain a first class scout degree Is to be able to start a fire without matches. There are many different devices used. Some of them resemble the old Indian meth ods and require a great deal of phy sical strength and patience. . but with the equipment shown in the accom panying drawing after a little prac tice, a fire can be started very quickly. Outfits made from these plans have won several contests for speed In set ting fires. Begin work on the outfit by making the bow B. For this get a piece of oak wood x 1H 30. Lay out on the piece the pattern given on the detailed drawing of the bow. Bore a " hole to form the round part of the cutout just ahead of the hand hold, y VWt a coping, keyhole, or turning taw cut to line. Next make the holes for the leather or buckskin thong. These holes are bored with a 14 bit. After this flnkh t. k- k. ftrst scraping all corner round with pieces of broken window glass, and then smoothing with fine sandpaper. Spend plenty of time scraping and sanding, so the handle will be nicely rounded and all parts perfectly smooth and free from slivers. Rub the bow with linseed or other oil so if you are caught out in the rain with It the wood will not be affected. A leather thong can be bought at almost any hardware or snorting goods store. It Is to be threaded through the holes and held In place by a brad pushed through the leather KA It ra nnnr !ln back through the hole. The block D is also made of oak.

The tinder Is made by fraying a piece of manilla rope or twine. Other materials such as oiled cotton might be tried. To start a fire make some shavings from a dry piece of stick. Collect some dry grass and twigs. Place the board A on the ground and below one of the notches place a bunch of tinder. Wind the thong on the bow about the drill as shown ia the as sembled drawing.
