But will you run to my house, and tell them what has bappened?. Don't trouble to come back yourself, but come and see me tomorrow at four, and don't forget to bring Angelina-Rose with you. Hurry as fast as you can, dear,\ and he closed his eyes as if he was tired. It did not take Betty long to run to the big house and tell the frightened maid of the accident. \Oh dear, oh dear, I must tell Miss Alice at once,\ and she hurried away, and Betty obeying orders scampered home, e & + Next day, punctually at four, Betty stood, bugging Angelina-Rose very tight, at the door of the big house. \Come right in.

She called toher aid a help- er or nurse, who took great pride in her young charge and formed for him a great attachment. This nurse was a . wise woman, and she must have real- ized that the litte fellow had in him the makings of a great man. So great was her love for the boy that when she was called to her home, she would turn with his nurse to her home in Whitehaven. 'There she kept him for three years and taught him the earli- est rules of life and living. Can you imagine the surprise of his mother when, on his return, three years later, the little four-year-old Jonathan read for her any chapter of the Bible, to which she turned. We are told that he- was a very clever little fellow, and that he applied to studying the hab!'s and manners of the people about him. Some rich relatives of his mother sent him to college, where he won fame as a bad student and a satirical fellow. To be satirical means that one is al- ways looking for the faults of others and. overlooking the good points which mot leave the child, and finally his mother consented that Johnathan re- are always to be found if searched for lonw _anonch.

PaRTI WiTm RM . Ano Wiasmens Excerr Tan-Fom Thar Use A FHM Screw in working. Lay out your patterns on cardboard If it is desired to make several toy® and remember you can carry on the operations of several with little more difficulty than for only one. Lay out the squares as suggested in the draw- Ing, then trace through them so the lines pass through your squares in the same relative position as they do in the drawing. Careful work will produce a good job, but remember you cannot expect to hurry through It carelessly and have something that you will be proud of, Anything that is worth doing at all is worth doing aswell as you can. Having made your patterns, get out the stock for the various pieces. No edges need be squared when the pat- terns are made from cardboard, though two adjacent edges would have to be- square-with each- other if the patterns were to be laid out directly on the wood. Trace your patterns on the wood just as carefully as you lald them out on the cardboard, then saw them to shape, first boring the various holes for the screws. The body will probably be too heavy for the ordi- nary coping saw, though you can use It if you do not want to work too fast. The turning saw. beinw stroneer. may have to be used. If you should be fortunate enough to have the use of a power band saw, your work would be very easy, but as most boys will not have this tool at hand, they will have to content themselves with the other tools, Saw the patterns with the same de- gree of care as the other work has been performed, then sandpaper them, Assembling is to be done by means of screws, ropnd head except for the tail, which should be fastened with a fat head screw, Use washers between the legs and the body and also be- tween the head of the screw and the legs. 'This will give you a better op- crating toy and will also prevent the legs from marring the paint. After the toy is assembled, meas- urements can be made for putting the grooves in the cart,. It is easy to un- derstand Why dimensions have not been made for them on the drawing. Be particular about the wheels. | If they are not round, your toy will not operate easily. Round wheels can be made if only care is exercised. Place a scrow eye on the cart to draw it by, Paint according to the suggestion on the drawing. These colors were used on the toy the drawing was made from and it was very attractive, WEENTYS ADVENTURE WITH HER BALLOON rommac EENTY had gone to the Fair, and what a great place It was to be sure! There were POD corn stands and ice-cream, y- '# horses and all sorts of things to c and try! My! but it was a fine orning Weenty spent at the Fair! There was the Balloon Man, too, vith his gay balloons tugging and tug- ging to be off and away. They tugged so hard at their strings Weenty won- dered that they didn't carry the Bal- loon Man right off his feet all to- gether, 'They might have, too. if he hadn't a strong leather bag tled to his side. - Weenty saw it was full of shiny nickels and dimes when the Balloonl ' Man opened it to put in her nickel that | Nursle handed to him in exchange for (a balloon. What a time the little girl had in teclding just what color her balloon ould be! - There were so many gay olors and they looked brighter with he bits of sky that the balloons re« lected on their round cheeks. - It was a delicious problem to choose and finally she walked away with a great [pinkey balloon tugging away at the m string she held in her chubby little |\ hand. Once home again, Weenty had wreat fun with her pretty balloon and when nap-time came you may be sure «he tled it to the foot of her little orib, where she could see it just as long ms she could keep awake. There it bobbed with two shiney spots on its round pinkey cheeks that were little pictures of Weenty's own windows though they looked quite like bright eyes, Weenty began to think she 'had looked at them long q0ugh. \Why they are eyes!\ Weenty. said i1denly and then she noticed the,bal- won bad a small round nose and a; ide smiling moutht \Ha!\ the Balloon observed.

The bright sun makes the Man in the Moon's house look quite dull, but just walt tll It grofvs dark.\ \Is there really a Man Moon?\ asked Weenty eagerly. \Why yes. Shall we peck in to see him?\ the Balloon replied. They didn't have to do that, how- ever, for the Man in the Moon peeked out, \Good-day Folk,\ he said quite cor- dially. | \\Won't you come in ? It isn't often we have company up here. I am just about to have tea. Come in and have some.\ He opened his little gate and Weenty went into the most curious little room all furnished with mother-of-pearl, crystal and jowels. 'The balloons pre- ferred to frisk about outside as they didn't care for tea, so Weenty and the little man sat down together at a 1it- tle table. \Will you have cream?\ the Man in the Moon asked, \It it nice new cream and far superior to the Milky Way milk, you know.\ You see, now that J have my cow, I am independent of the Milky.A¥ay Dairy fairies.\ \Your cow?\ asked Weenty, \Have you a cow ?\ \Yes It is rather a new institution,\ in the | c o wink ate A The La \ms Moon agreed.. \I've first million. yours I; lived up bere 1 only nad nor a tew hundred ages.

Imever knew what happened to her, It doesn't tell in Mother Goose.\ \So you do know about her. I'll call her,\ the Man in the Moon said and stuck his head out of the window to call, \Molly Moll-ee!\ Presently a cow came to the window. She looked a bit cross but when she heard all about how she was made into a verse she wins quite proud. \Say it to me,\ she demanded, So Weenty repeated \. tle in her best style. \Hey diddle-diddle, The cat and the Fiddie- The cow jumped over the Mo The little dog laughed to see suci sport And the dish ran away with the spoon t\\ Molly Cow's face was wreathed in smiles. \That's ft,\ she sald. \Historical facts, And pray have you see any of my old friends?

You must admit, though, I was cleverer than them all for see how far I jumped, and you will have to travel far to find another cow who lives in a Moon, Fh, Master?\ ‘ Weenty was sorry she could not tell anything further about.

When she opened them again, it was to find herself in her own little crib. There was her friend the Balloon at the foot of the crib just as he was before with no bright eyes or little nose nor big, smiling mouth and when whe tried to ask him about the other balloons he simply nodded and awayed 1 y balloon might.
