Helping Jimmy Rabbit. .
.Peter Mink was feeling even more
peevish than usual. And this was the
reason: Jimmy Rabbit bad a new
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

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
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

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
"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.

. More Truth
i By JAMES J.
THE AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE
I stood beside the 'phone one day,
And thought up bitter words and strong;
Which I proposed, forthwith, to say -
If Central got my number wrong.
I hoped, in this untoward event, ,
Her ladyship's replies to me
Would be extremely impudent
And wake my powers of repartee.
For when one gets a busy line (
, In answer to a casual call,
Or when by obvious design
He doesn't get a line at all,
It's consolation to invoke
Profanity's explosive art.
' - A few rough words in anger spoke,
X ...... Pour balm upon a troubled heart.
. I got a line I didn't call
V Which nine times out of ten I do), -
And eagerly I thought of all . .
The hard and cruel words I knew.
But wh4n I'd built them, Word on word-' '
In one intense and savage swear,
An awful thought to me occurred : ,
There wasn't any Central there.
An objurgation will suffice.:
- To move a maid to much disquiet, -'
But a mechanical device
Is wholly unaffected by it. ' '
No matter what wild words you fling . - . .
It just resumes its dreary droning,
And so this automatic thing
Takes half the pleasure out of 'phoning!

" 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. Burnine
