BURGESS Never wish an unkind thing Lest your wish misfortune taring, --Old Mother Nature. It happened that Peter Rabbit saw his old friend, Johnny Chuck, the very first day that Johnny came out after his long winter sleep. Peter had chanced to be passing within sight of Johnny Chuck's house and, glancing over there, discovered some one sitting on the doorstep. Peter stopped and sat up to stare long and hard. "It looks like Johnny Chuck. It certainly "does. I wonder if it can be," said Peter to himself. He turned and \began to slowly hop in that direction. He wasn't yet quite sure enough to hurry. As he drew nearer he became sure. Then he hurried. Lipperty-lipperty- lip, he scampered across the Green Meadows toward Johnny Chuck's house. "Hello, Johnny Chuck! When did you wake up?" cried Peter as soon as he was near enough. "What is it to you?" demanded Johnny Chuck rather crossly, for he was hardly thoroughly awake as yet. "Nothing. Nothing at all," declared Peter hastily. "I was just wondering if you had been out before and I had missed you. But it doesn't matter. I'm glad to see you. I certainly am glad to see you. My, how well you look! And how fat you are! I don't see how you do it." "Do what?" asked Johnny. "Keep fat without eating," replied Peter. "I can't. In fact, I can't get really fat at any time and, goodness knows, I eat enough when food is plentiful. I don't suppose you have eaten a mouthful since I last saw -you, and that was --why, that was way back last fall! Have you?" "Have I what?" grumbled Johnny Chuck. "Eaten a mouthful since last fall?" replied Peter. "Don't be silly. Of course I haven't eaten since then. What has there been for me to eat?" retorted Johnny Chuck. "I always manage to find something. It isn't always what I would like, but it keeps me going," said Peter. . "It wouldn't keep me going," replied Johnny Chuck. "I don't see why not. We eat the same things," said Peter. "In summer, yes," agreed Johnny Chuck. "But where is the sweet clover and green grass in winter?' "There isn't any. You know that," replied Peter. "It is mostly bark and tender twigs for me then." . \-^^^ f "ff' "Hello, Johnny Chuck, when did you wake up?" cried Peter "Just so, and on those I would starve," declared Johnny Chuck. "So I sleep," he added. "And stay fat," said Peter. "And stay fat," agreed Johnny. "And that is what I don't understand," said Peter. "How do you do it? Why, I never in all my life^was as fat as you are this very minute, yet all winter long you have meeting of the Railroad Signal as- eaten nothing. No, sir, I don't un- sociation.

Vernon Wood says the pheasent Â· cornes out of the woods and runs Yellow Corn May Replace White BERKELEY, Cal.-- (UP)--As the result of experiments being carried on by the University of California, it seems likely that popcorn will no longer be used in the decoration of Christmass trees. The reason is that the future popcorn will be yellow instead of white. The university experiments have demonstrated that the yellow popcorn is vastly superior to the white in nutritive and other qualities. University authorities believe that disappearance of the white popcorn the next few years will witness the corn from the market. along beside the truck's front wheel, jumping and spurring at it as it moves. After the truck has gone about an eighth of a mile, the bird returns to the woods. It seems that Pete, the name given the bird by Wood, likes only this truck because it doesn't bother with any of other trucks of the same color and size that use the same road.

"Perhaps not quite, but you're pretty near it. Anyway, you're fat' at a time when most folks are thin and have forgotten what it feels like to be comfortably fa You go to sleep when there is sti plenty to eat, and you continu to sleep while your friends an neighbors starve. You don't knov what real hunger is. Then when snow and ice have gone, you wake up, still fat. It isn't fair, if you ask me," declared Peter. "I didn't ask you," retorted Johnny Chuck. "If you can't get fa' and sleep through the winter, that's, your hard luck and no business o mine. I know how to get fat, bu keeping fat while I sleep all win- :er is Mother Nature's doing, no 1 mine. If you want' to know about it, go ask her. I'm satisfied with things as they are." "I wish you might know what il is like to be really hungry and have nothing to eat," said Peter maliciously. (Copyright, 1937, by T. W. Burgess) nuisance.-- George Bernard Shaw, English author.
