Around the Dining Room Table By ANNE CAMPBELL A BOUND the dining room table. a (frown head and a fair Are bending above their school hooks. And doing a lesson there. And I remember another Hound table long ago. With a china lamp In the center And two dark beads bending low. We helped ourselves to the apples That lay on the copper plate. And we munched on a bowl of pop corn While we learned to conjugate. The old clock ticked on the mantle. A kitten lay on the rug. The stove burned wood In the cor ner. And the room was warm and snug. When the clock struck nine, our mother Smiled In her wise sweet way. And we climbed to the attic bed room To dream of another day. The crocheted spread and the bu reau. The pictures In rosewood frames. The books about Elsie Dlnsroore. The lamps’ uncertain flames; I see the whole humble picture. As, catching my daughter's eye Above the dining room table I dream of the days gone by.

How about the man who would have made a perfectly good carpenter who hypnotised himself Into confidence that he was cut out for the law—and lived the life of the "also rnn'* and the failure? How about the farm lad who found self-expression and joy in making things grow out of the earth, hut who hypnotised himself, or allowed a fond parent to hypnotise him.

Is one of the strangest of living mammals—extraordinary In appear- : nnce. In structure, and In habits, says the Chicago Field Museum News. 1 Aardvarks are common through out southeastern Africa, states I>r. * , Wilfred 11. Osgood, curator of zoology at the museum. They are about the size of a large fat hog, 1 weigh up to 1.10 pounds, and have a ! pig-like snout, which accounts for : the name given them by the early i I>utch colonists In South Afrit- 1 That they are so abundant over so wide a range of territory, can grow i to such large size as Individuals on a diet of ants exclusively, is eh* qtient evidence of the prevalence of ants in Africa, and the problem they , present to settlers. Being nocturnal In habits and liv ing In burrows, aardvarks are rarely seen, says Doctor Osgood. They j t-annot. therefore, be hunted like j most animals, hut instead by the tin- j usual method of seeking their bur- 1 rows nnd digging them out. How- j ' ever, this presents difficulties he-j cause nn nardvark can dig faster I than six men with shovels, and thus escape farther into the earth. The members of the White-Coats expedi tion. instead of digging directly after the aardvarks. pushed the earth J <lown behind them. This Interfered I with further digging by the nnimn .< ! and the men then dug in front of | them and shot them through Iho J ground as their movement In the ■ *arth became visible. Tin* teetli of the aardvark have a 1 peculiar tubular structure, most ; closely resembling those of certain j fishes. This would seem to indicate ' a very ancient ancestry for these 'janimals, which are probably the last remnant of an order of which all ! other species are now extinct, avers j Hoctor Osgood.
