12 TI1&TUEC? PITER IX.', ! 'J( Helping Jimmy Rabbit. . .Peter Mink was feeling even more peevish than usual. And this was the reason: Jimmy Rabbit bad a new sled. . Now, I'etcr had never owned ,a sled: and it made him envVnn to see Now you simply can't fall cB Peter said . ' i what a good time Jimmy was having, ! coasting down the skle of - Blue mountain., ' " t There was only one thing that Fimmy Rabbit did not like about his i sled. It went so fast that he always fell off long before he reached' the end of the -slide. "I can fix that." Peter Slink told liim.. "You go home and borrow your father's hammer and a few nails, and I'll show you how you can roast 'way down into Pleasant Val ley without once tumbling off. , Jimmy thanked him. And he, hur ried home at once.-'- He dragged his new slid after him, tool for he was afraid that if he left it behind he might not he able Jo find Peter Mink -r-or the sled, either when he came back aeain: ' . But Peter did not seem to ' care.a Perhaps he had something dn his mind. Anyhow, when Jimmy Rab bit returned'-with-the. hammer and nails, Peter . Mink, was wailing pa tently for him) '. 'Now, ; then," said Pclef, -as he took the nails and the hammer, :"you sit on the sled, Jimmy, and 111 fix you up in no time." . . So Jimmy Rabbit sat dowivon his new sled. -And in a few minutes Peter .'.Mink had nailel Jimmy's trousers fast to the sled.' . "Now. vou simplv can't fair off'! Peter said. , "111 give you a push? and the first thing you know, you 11 vi niMiivii vvvii vniki 11 .' j be down in the valley. Jimmy Rabbit said to himself that Peter Mink was very bright, to think of such a splendid plan as nailing his trousers to the sled. He thanked Peter: and he gripped the sled , tightly though he didn't need to while Peter gave him a push.' that .sent him flying down the mountain side. ! Though he went like the wind, he never fell off oijce. And soon he was down in Pleasant -Valley, skim ming over the fust which covered the drifts m Farmer Green's meadow. At last the sled stopped. And then Jimmy Rabbit decided that Peter Mink had forgotten something. How was he to. get off the sled with his trousers nailed fast to it? Atl what "would his mother say. when she saw .the nail-holes, in his, trousers? And vhat would his father do, 'when he saw the nails in Jimmy's new sled? Tt was not very pleasant for Jimmy Rabbit, sitting all alone in the meadow, with such thoughts running through diis head. After'e had sat .there; a "while Jimmy heard somethiqg that worried him even more. He heard, old dog Spot barking. -A-. d he saw that he would be in a good deal of a fix if Spot should happen to come along and find him. For he cqjuldu't stir from his sled. A- ; 'i ' Jimmy began to hate that sfed. He wished he had never seen it. . . And then he heard somebody scam pering over the crust. He was' al most too frightened to look around to see who it was. But he turned his head. And he was glad to find that it was' Peter Mink, .who had run all the way down from' Blue mountain. ''You had a fine ride, didn't. you?" sail' Peter Mink. " -'.' "Yes." Jimmy answered. '''But. I liked ttie beginning of it better tiian the end." : "Why. what's the matter?" Peter inquired. ' - . "I can't get off the sled," Jimmy aid. ' ' . . V ' 'v Peter Mink ' pretended to' be sur prised. And lie, said that he 'hadn't thought of that. ; "But 111 help you," he promised. -! Jimmv Rabbit thanked him. , ,. "But,", said Peter Mink. "I can't do all these things for you for noth ing, of course. I have too much else to do, to be wasting my time like this, without pay." . "What do you want?" Jimmy Rab- bit asked him. '. , " . ' "Give me the sled,"- said Peter link, "and I'll, help you to, get off . it.: ; j -,. . . . , ''All ' right, ' Jimmy agreed. -He .-would even have given1 ' PejWr his wheelbarrow', too, he was .so anxious to! be freed from his seat. ' "I think, though, that: you might, pull me up the mountain," Jimmy added;. "I don't , feel like, walking." And that was quite true, because he Jjad been so' frightened, when he heard old Spot barking, that his legs were still shaking. . "Well," said Peter Mink, "I'm pretty particular who rides on my sled. But I'll pull you up the moun ' tain, 'because I'm going that way myself, to -slide." ' - And he 1 started off, dragging Jimmy Rabbit behind him. . , EMJ0Y , -YOUR MEflLD Uk f ' ttmt ri ' BCrOfcK MKAL mm . More Truth i By JAMES J.

" This is an ancient Slavic supersti tion which spread to many lands,, but flourished chiefly among peoples who buried their dead instead of cremat1 tig them. Though much less com mon than formerly, the vampire su perstition is by no means extinct. In I 70 and 1871 there were many trials of people accused of disturbing dead oodles in Connection with vampire istn in Germany. there seemed to be ah epidemic of the superstition just then and in comparatively recent years at least two cases have come rc light in New England.. A vampire is supposed to be a dead person who comes forth from his crave to suck the blood of the living at night. The superstition is a bit ha2y as to the form in which the vam pire comes, whether as a ghost or in the actual buried body. An exami nation of the oldest and best authori ties would seem to indicate a sort of "astral body." Criminate and sufc cides turn into vampires, but a rabbit running 6ver, or a bird flying over, the grave of an innocent person may change him into a vampire. This superstition doubtless origi nated in the gloomy imagination of Slavs who'saw their loved ones dying froln some wasting disease for which they were unable to account. In a New England case of vampireism which 'the writer investigated about 30 years ago the family afflicted were found to be consumotive.

The process of re maining erect is due, not to any ac tion ot the lower part of the body, but to a portion of the .brain though it is true that this will .not suffice to support us without the as-sistance-of our feet and legs. In addition to this section of the train proper, there are three small passages or canals connected with the ear and filled with a thick heavy fluid. These canals communicate directly with the -.brain by means, of a complicated system of nerves, and until we learn "the .knack of '"keep ing our balance,", it is impossible for us to walk or even stand upright as it would be for a person to ride a bicycle or walk a tight rope the first time-he tried -it. Experience has t teach us the trick of .so balancing ourselves that the liquid in the aural csnals remains at a certain angle which is the reason that if we whirl around suddenly this fluid continues to turn even after, we have stopped and imparts the feeling of dizziness which causes us to fall over or "lose cur balance." , Copyright,' U20, by Wheeler Syndicate, Inc.
