He likened It to a darkened cathedral: then as candle after candle la lighted by the sexton, the cathedral grows lighter and lighter until the whole Interior Is clearly illumined. This he applied to the individual, saying that after a man once grasps the safety Idea It is not hard to keep him interested. Another reward of safety, according to Mr. Murphy, Is the reward of happiness and worth all the effort expended, because so much suffering Is spared the safe man as well as his family.

"I haven't had a meal In so long 1 can't remember." went on the Wolf, "so why should 1 want to pick my teeth" "Well, you needn't be so cross about It." spoke the Pox with a smile. "I only thought if you had a toothpick for me, and one for yourself, we might use them later, because today I am going-to catch Uncle Wlgglly and nibble his ears. We are going to eat. my dear. Mr. Wolf!" 'Bah! I have heard that story before!" snarled the other bad chap. "1 will wait about getting a toothpick until--"and then, all of a sudden the Wolf looked down the woodland path toward Uncle Wiggily's hollow stump bungalow, and the Wolf went on: "But. speaking of toothpicks, there goes somebody we could get one off.''
