"Oh!", said the Wizard, much interest- Are we going there? Tnen 1 m id T furyt far I'v aIwsvi wanted to eet the Cuttencllps.'1 Who are they? inquired Aunt Km. "Walt till we "ft there," replied Dor hy, with a laugh "then you'll see r yourself. I've never seen the Cut nclips. you know, so I can't 'zactly ilain em to you." ' Once free of the Emerald City the whorse daphed away at tremendous eed. Indeed, he went go fast that mt Em had hard work to catch her eath. and Uncle Henry held fast to e seat of the red wagon. "Gently gently, my boy!" called the izard, and at this the Sawhorse slack ed hig speed. "What's wrong?" asked the animal, prlitly turning his wooden head to -)k at the party with one eye. which is a knot of wood. "Why, we wish to admire the tfienery, at's all," answered the Wizard. ' "Some of your pasengers," added the aggy Man, "have never been out of e Rmerald City before, and the coun- y is all new to them." If you (to ton fast you 11 spoil all a fun," said Dorothy. "There's no irry." "Very well; It is all the same to me," served the ISawhorse, and after that went at a more moderate rate. Uncle Henry was astonished, i "How can a wooden thing me so ln llicent?" he asked. "Why, I gave him some sawdust aina the last time I fitted hi head 'th new ears." explained the Wizard. I'he sawdust was made from hard lots, and, now the Sawhorse is able to ink out any knotty problem he meets th." "I see,""sald Uncle Henry. "I don't," remarked Aunt Em;, but no e .paid any attention to this state- ent. ' Before long they came to a stately illding that stood upon a green, plain th handsome shade trees grouped here id there. . "What is that?" asked Uncle Henry. "That." reDlled the Wizard, "is the foyal Athletic College of Oz, which is rented by I'rofessor H. M. togglebug, , K. "Ivfs stop and make a call," sug sted Dorothy. So the Sawhorse drew up in front of e great building and they were met at e door by the learned Wogglebug h'im lf. He seemed fully as tall as the Izard, and was dressed in a red and hite vest and a blue swallow-tailed at, and had vellow knee hrewhp anil Nrple silk stockings upon his slender ss. a tan nat was jauntily set upon s head and he wore spectacles over his g bright eyes. "Welcome, Dorothy," i said the Wog ebug; "and welcome to all your iends. We are Indeed pleased to re ive you at this great Temple of earning." ' ' .. . ' "I , thought it was an- Athletic Col ge," said the Shaggy Man. "It is. mv dear airJ" nwm4 the ogglebug, proudly. "Here It Is that e leacn tne youth of our great land ientiftc College Athltlraln uii hi nritv." . " " clse?' asked Kirotljy. "Don't .they get any reading, writing and, rlthmetfc?" "Oh, yes; of course.' They get all: those, and more," returiied the pro fessor. "But suclf things occupy little of their time, please follow ,me and I will show you how mj scholars are usually occupied. This is a class hour and they are all busy." They followed, him to a big field back of the' college building, where several hundred young Ozites were at. their classes. In one place they played foot ba'l, in another baseball. Some played .tftrtnift. HOmD frntf nnm A wpm Kwlinnilncr Hn a big pool. Upon a river which wound through the grounds several crews in racing boats were rowing with great en thusiasm. Other groups of student played basketball and cricket, while in one placet a ring was roped in to per mit boxing and wrestling by the ener getic youthsi All the collegians seemed busy and there was much laughter and shouting. "This collepfe," said Professor Wog glebug, complacently, "is a great suc cess. It's educational value is undis puted," and we are turning out many great and valuable citizens every year. "But when do they study?" asked Dorothy. t "Study?" said the Wogglebug, look ing perplexed at the question. yes. when" do thev get their 'rithme tic, iogerfy, and such things?" "Oh, they take doses of those every night and morning," was the reply. "What do you mean by doses?" Doro thy inquired, wonderlngly. " "Why, we use the newly invented School Pills, made by" your friend the Wizard. , These pills we have found to be very effective, and they save a lot of time. . Please step this way and I will show you our Laboratory of Xearn ing." He led them to a room in the build ing where many large bottles were standing in rows upon shelves. , "These are the Algebra Pills," said the Professor taking down one of the bottles. "One at night on retiring, is equal to four hours of study. Here are the Geography Pills one at night and one in the morning. In this next bot tle are the Latin Pills one three times a '.ayi Then we have the Grammar Pills one before each meal and the Spelling Pills, which are taken when ever needed." "Your scholars must have to take a lot of pills," remarked Dorothy, thought fully. "How do they take 'em, in apple sauce?" ; . , : , No, my dear. They are sugar-coated to acquire the lesser branches of learn ing r: . - ,. "It's a great invention, I'm sure, said Dorothy, looking adrrtirlnglyi at the Wizard, who blushed modestly at this praise. i j . "We live" in an age or progress." an nounced Prof. . Wogglebug, pompous ly. "It is easier -to swallow knowledge than to acquire it laboriously from books. Is It not so. my friends?" "Some folks can ewajlow anything,' ald Aunt Em. "but, to me this seems too much like taking medicine., "Young men In college always have to take their medicine, one way or an other," observed- the Wizard, with a smile; and, as our Professpr says, these School Pills have proved to ba great success. One day while I was making , Vi..m T llnnnanarl trt Arnn nriA fit them. and one of Bllllna's chickens gobbled it up. A few minutes afterward tma cnicK got upon a roost and recited The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck' without making a single mistake.. Then it re cited "The Charge of the Light Brigade and afterward 'Excelsior.' You see. the chicken had eaten an 'Elocution Pill.'" . They now bade good-bye to the Pro fessor, and thanking him for his kind reception mounted again into the red wagon and continued their Journey. . The travelers had taken no provisions with them because they knew that thay would be welcomed wherever they might go in the Land of Oz, and that the peo ple would feed and lodge them with genuine hospitality. So about noon they stopped at a farmhouse and were given a delicious luncheon of bread and milk, fruits and wheat cakes with maple syrup. After resting a while and stroll ing through the orchards with their host a "round, jolly farmer they got Into the wagon and again Btanled the Saw horse along the pretty, winding road. There were sign posts jat all the cor ners, and finally they came to one which TAKE THIS ROAD TO THE CUTTEN- v CLIPS. . , '- There was also a hand pointing in the right direction, so they turned the i Sawhorse that way and found it a very good road, but seemingly little traveled. "I've nevef been to see the Cutten clfps before," remarked Dorothy. "Nor I," said the Captain General. "Nor I." said he Wizard. "Nor I," said Blllina. "I've hardly been out of the Emerald City since I arrived in this country, added the Shaggy Man. "Why, none of us has been there, then," exclaimed the little girl.

You see, until these School Pills were In vented we wasted a lot of time in study that may now be better employed in practicing: athletics." "Seems to me th. pills are a good thing," said Omby Amby, who remem bered how it UBed to make his head ache as a boy to study arithmetic. "They are, sir,," declared tile Wog glebug, earnestly. "They give us an ad vantage over all other colleges, because at no loss of time our boys become thor oughly conversant with Greek and Lat in, Mathematics and Rfnmnhv rii-am.
