wasp's nests before. He knew all about the hot tempered little people that built them. He knew that In winter there was nothing to fear from them. "I believed I'll climb up there and have a look at that nest," said Chatterer to himself. "I'd like to see what it is like inside. There is nothing to be afraid of now. If any wasps stayed in that nest an winter they are either dead by this time or asleep, and I had Just as soon have two or three to eat." So Chatterer started to climb up to the nest. But he had hardly left the ground when another thought came to him and he stopped to consider u. "It is pretty warm today." thought he, "and somo insects get to stirring around on a warm day like this. I wouldn't like to find n wasp that had come to life. They certainly can, sting. Yes, sir, they certainly can sting. One stung me once and I don't want to be stung again. Of course, there may not be any wasps In there. I don't suppose there are. It Is better to play safe than to be sorry, however. We shall have some more cold days yet and a cold day Is the kind of day to poke around in a wasp's nest. I'll wait for a cold day." So Chatterer Jumped down to the ground and once more began poking around under the leaves, searching for htizel nuts. He didn't give that nest another thought. Ho didn't even look up at it. All the time a pair of black, bright eyes were watching Th«vT B ™£ watchln * tin w H V° Cy * 8 of tofoot w« T v,, M ° U ? e< InBlde ' Jft!

But now that Chatterer was no longer even looking at the nest, Whltefoot felt that his secret was still safe ' "Wouldn't he be surprised.' thought Whltefoot, "to find out that I am here? He hasn't the least Idea that I am watching him. That reminds me that be as careful as we may, we are never absolutely sure that we are unseen. The Next Story: "The Tclltal Xail.
