Yes, indeed. Shadow had as nar row an escape as you can well im agine. There was just one thing that saved Shadow and that was his tail. Shadow ought to think a great deal of that tail. E’robably he does. And yet it is quite likely that Shadow doesn’t know to this When Shadow Was Near Enough, Hooty Swooped Swiftly and Si lently. day that it was his tail that saved him that night But Llooty the Owl knows. You see Shadow’s winter coat is pure white, just as white as the snow, but the tip of his tail is black. It looks for all the world as if Old Mother Nature had been in a hurry when she changed Shadow’s coat and forgot the end of his tail. But she didn’t. Oh, my, no, no!

You see, when he came jumping along in the snow Hooty the Owl saw him. That is, he saw something moving. But Shadow was so white and the snow was so white that it was very hard indeed to tell them apart. Still, it is probable that Shadow would have been caught but for one thing. The black tip of his tail was very easy to see. Os course. Against that white snow it stood right out as black as black can be. llooty couldn’t help seeing that. It was such hard work to see Shadow him self and so easy to see that black end of Shadow’s tail that llooty kept his eyes fixed on that. When Shadow was near enough, llooty swooped swiftly and silently, but his eyes being fixed on that moving black spot, he grabbed at that with his great claws instead of at Shadow himself, and that tail be ing too small for him to get hold of he simply plunged his great claws into the snow and got nothing at all. Shadow dodged like a flash. No one can dodge quicker than Shadow the Weasel, lie can move so quickly that it would have been hard work to follow him even if he had been wearing his summer coat of brown, but in that white coat —well, it just couldn’t be done. The best llooty could do was to keep his eyes on that black rip of Shadow’s tail. So, of course, every time he swooped he missed Shadow. It made him terribly angry, because each time he would think that sure ly he had Shadow and each time he missed. As for Shadow, lie quite forgot Peter Rabbit. The instant he had j dodged the first time his sharp lit- j tie eyes had looked all about for a hiding place, and they had seen an j old log with a hole in it. It was nearer than the brush pile where j Peter was hiding. Right away ne j of lemon Juice, adding more if need ed to give the right consistency and flavor.

Your Home and You By Betsy Callister CAN YOU MAKE GOOD TOAST? IT IS a rare cook who takes the trouble, or knows how, to make really good toast, yet a slice or two of toast that has been browned to a turn and buttered to perfection ' served hot and tempting with your breakfast coffee Is as good In warm I weather as in cold. There are many other sorts of toast worth mastering. To make oven toast you may use up any stale white bread you have on hand —or fresh bread may be used. How ever, it is an excellent way to use up bread no longer fresh enough to be eaten plain. Spread each slice evenly and sparingly with butter ; and arrange them on a flat baking dish in the oven. Watch so as to see that they dry evenly and turn a golden brown. The pieces of bread should be turned occasion ally if you are to have them brown evenly. Serve piping hot. An easy way to make cinnamon The Fill toast is to make a mixture of three parts of sugar to one of cinnamon and put it in a shaker. An alu minum sugar shaker is good for this purpose. Make your toast in the broiler of your oven or over j the coals of your fire. Butter even-1 !y and shake over each slice some! of the sugar mixture. Now pile up \ and place in the oven for a few min-1 utes to allow the sugar to melt a little. Then there is the french toast made by soaking slices of bread in a mixture of egg and milk and j browning them in a hot butteredj frying pan; cream toast made by j pouring medium thick cream sauce over slightly buttered toast; cheese toast made by adding grated cheese to the white sauce and tomato toast made by pouring tomato cream sauce over the toast.

I have seen a number of these ! things and have never become panic stricken when near them. So I did not lose my head now, though the approaching tornado was indeed an impressive sight, Will Keller writes, in a report to the weather office at ; Dodge City, Kan. The surrounding country is level and there was nothing to obstruct the view. There was little or no rain | falling from the cloud. Two of tile tornadoes were some : distance away, and looked to me like ! groat ropes dangling from the clouds, ; but the near one was shaped more like a funnel, with ragged clouds surrounding it. It appeared to be much larger and more energetic than the others, and it occupied the cen tral position of the cloud, the great cumulus dome being directly over it. Steadily the tornado came on, the end gradually rising above the ground. I could have stood there ! only a few seconds, hut so im pressed was I with what was going on that it seemed a long time. At last the great shaggy end of the funnel hung directly overhead. Everything was as still as death. There was a strong gassy odor, and It seemed that I could not breathe. There was a screaming, hissing sound coming directly from the end ; of the funnel. I looked up. and to ! my astonishment I saw right into | the heart of the tornado. There was a circular opening in the center of| ! the funnel, about 50 or 100 feet in diameter, and extending straight upward for a distance of at least one-half mile, as best I could judge | under the The walls of this opening were of j rotating clouds, and the whole was I made brilliantly visible by constant flashes of lightning which zigzagged from side to side. Had it not been for the lightning, I could not have seen the opening, not any distance up into it, anyway. Around the lower rim of the great vortex small tornadoes were con stantly forming and breaking away. These looked like tails as they writhed their way around the end of the funnel. It was these that made the hissing noise. I noticed that the direction of ro tation of the great whirl was anti clockwise, hut the small twisters ro tated both ways—some one way and some another. The opening was entirely hollow, except for something which I could not exactly make out, hut suppose that it was a detached wind cloud. This tiling was in the center, and was moving up and down. The tornado was not traveling at a great speed. I had plenty of time to get a g»od view of the whole tiling, inside and out. It came from the direction of Greensburg, which town is three miles west and one miles north of my place. Its course was not in a straight line, but it zigzagged across the country in a general northeasterly direction. After it passed my place it again dipped and struck and demolished the house and barn of a farmer by the name of Evans. The Evans family, like ourselves, had been out looking over their hailed-out wheat, and saw the tornado coming. Not having time to reach their cellar, they took refuge under a small bluff that faced to the lee ward of the approaching tornado. They lay down flat on the ground, A Protective Pood fTHB importance of cod liver oil of high vitamin test was recently stressed in a Government pamphlet, Emergency Food Relief and Child Health. “An indispensable food for young children,” it characterized this valuable oil, rich in Vitamins A and D.
