It was the first year of their married life, and Oirime waa quite In love with her husband. The winter that followed was a revelation. Nathaniel would descend Into the basement In high spirit*. select a Jar of peaches or pears or canned com and devonr Its contents with a relish that was remarkable to see. He Ignored the canned vegetahlea that t’arlene brought home from the local grocer’s and watched with a sort of condemning look In his eyes when Carlene ate them with apparently as much relish as he had displayed over their own pre sent e*. Thl* was the first year of their married life. Three summers later Carlene balked.

Their family had Increased by two. and the children needed atten tion. Reside*, canning wasn’t In her line. It was an old-fashioned Idea, out of date and not at all practical. Hut Nathaniel was stubborn. Canning wa* not only practical hut economical Why. right now he could buy any quantity of fresh fruit* and vege tables at half the regular retail price. If canned, they wonld prove not only a delectable and much en vied dish during the winter months, but economical as welL t'arlene was furious. She told Nathaniel he was silly and old-fashioned and selfish. She told him there wasn't another woman In town who ever thought of canning anything, that things were a lot different from what they were twenty years ago. All of which was lost on old fas!. loned Nat. The day following the first out break he announced that on the morrow he was planning to bring home a crate of strawberries, which he had been able to buy from n lo cal grocer at an extremely low j figure. He announced also that he exj*ected Carlene to begin canning at once, and that If she didn’t she could forget all about the white summer coat he had promised her for their trip to the Cape next month. Carlene lost control of her tem per. In rather a rage she Informed Nathaniel coldly that she didn't In tend to can any strawberries or raspberries or huckleberries ®r any other kind of berries. She told him that be could can his own strawberries If he wanted them canned, and In the meantime she was taking the children and going to visit her mother, and she ■ Intended t<» stay ;n*-re • is >*•»».

He stuck It out for two more ! dav* and then, finally convinced that t'arlene wa*n*t going to come home until he made some move to bring her hark, took hl« pride t«* tween hi* teeth and called her on the phone.

There be was |on the hank of the Smiling Pool with water In front of him and Reddy Fox creeping up right behind him. To try to run hark would be to run right Into Reddy’s mouth So Danny Swam With All His Might forth« Other Bank of the Smiling Pool. There wasn't a place for Danny to : hide. “I told Danny he was foolish to ! come over here,’’ muttered Grandfa ther Frog. “I'm rather fond of the little fellow, and I hate to think that I shall never see him again.” Step Back in the Car! THE POOLinc.E EXAMINER Grandfather Frog mw Reddy.start to spring on t>anny Meadow Mouse and closed his big. goggly eyes so that he would not see the dreadful end of [hinny. He expected to hear Danny's last desiwlrlng squeak, but Instead li« heard a splash. Grand father Frog’s big goggly eye* flew open, and then be gave a grunt of surprise, on the hank where Danny had been a second before waa Reddy Fox. and If ever there was an angry and disappointed Fox. that one was Reddy. And there in the Smiling Pool Itself was Danny Meadow Mouse swimming straight out to ward the middle as if be were quite as much at home tn the water as his big cousin Jerry Muskrat him self. From the way he was headed U waa quite clear that Danny Intended to swim across the Smiling Pool to the other bank "Chugarum!” ex claimed Grandfather Frog. •‘Chuga rum! Bravo, Danny Meadow Mouse! Bravo!” Danny made no reply. He was too busy. He couldn't waste bis breath talking. Besides, be was afraid he would swallow some wa ter and choke. So he kept right on swimming aa hard as ever he could The truth Is. Danny was In a hurry to reach the other bank. While he wasn't afraid of the water, he was afraid of certain folks who live In the water. He knew that Snapper, the great, big Snapping Turtle lives In the Smiling PnoL and that noth log would make him happier than « fat meadow mouse for his dlnuer Then Danny couldn't help hut think or Hilly Mink. If Hilly Mink should hap|ten along, well. Danny didn't like to think of It. Y’ou see. Hilly Mink Is also fond of fat meadow mice. So rmnny swam with a his might for the other hank of the Smiling Pool There were some little holes In that hank where he wonld feel quite safe. As for Iteddy Fox. he looked both foolish and angry. Y’ou see. Reddy had felt absolutely sure of that Meadow Mouse dinner. A# it wa* he wouldn't even get a frog dinner, for. at the warning of Red wing the Blackbird all the young frogs along the edge of the Smiling Pool had dived for safety. e.

Those words bring to my mind the case of a Qian who let bis “manliness" stand in the way of his happiness. It was a question of for giving his wife for a fault that had humiliated him, that had caused him to lose face with his friends The man wanted to forgive and forget, but he had his “self-respect" —he thought It wouldn’t be "man ly." So he sacrificed the happiness of himself and the woman who loved him. And don’t we women have the same fault?
