warrant THE NORTH ADAMB EVENING TRANSCBIPT, FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 193X The Bedtime Story by Thornton W. Burgess Fun in a Tree Tht greater heights you can attain The more from life you will attain. —Old Mother Nature. Like all other little folk starting out In the Great World Betty Bear had so much to learn that It It not to be wondered at that sometimes she forgot things she should have remembered. It was well that she had Mother Bear to remind her ot these things and to do It In a way to make forgetting a second time wholly unlikely. It seemed to Betty Bear that there was something new to see and learn about every time she turned her head Gradually she made the acquaintance of other little people In the Green Forest and it didn't take her long to discover that all held Mother Bear in great respect. But lor her own small self some of them had no respect at all. One of these was Chatterer the Red Squirrel. He »'as Impudent to Mother Bear, but he took care to be at a safe distance when he was. *The first time Betty Boar saw him he dashed almost under her very nose and of course she dashed after him. Up a tree scampered Chatterer and then turned to look down at Betty Bear and scold her and make fun of her and'do everything he could to tease and anger her. Now up to the Instant Chatterer had taken to that tree Betty hadn't known that trees could be climbed. : Had Chatterer spread wings and flew away she wouldn't have been more .surprised. She sat up and stared at him ID wonder and admiration. Chatterer, came down the trunk until he Was just out of her reach and barked and scolded and snickered almost in her very face. Then when he saw Mother Bear coming to find out what all the fuss was about he scampered up well toward the top. "Why don't you climb up and drive that impudent scamp out of that tree?" growled Mother Bear. "What?" exclaimed Betty Bear In sheer astonishment. ~ "Why don't you climb up there?" repeated Mother Be.nr. Betty just stared at her In astonishment. Mother Bear grinned. She said nothing but walked over to the tree, stood up, hooked her great claws Into the trunk and up she went. Chatterer .gave a shriek of fright and away he went, jumping to the next tree and from that to the next. Mother Bear slid and scrambled down. "Now that you have seen how it is done you try It," said she, "but try a smaller tree." She led the way to a smaller tree with branches near the ground. Betty "Now you stay In that tree and, no matter what happens, don't come down," ordered Mother Bear Bear stood up, hesitated, then dug her claws Into the bark Just as she had seen Mother Bear do, and In a Jilfy she was up to the first branch. "Now you stay in that tree and no matter what happens, don't come down," ordered Mother Bear In the tone of voice that Betty Bear had learned meant obedience. Then Mother Bear shuffled off out of sight.: Betty Bear had rather a funny ; feeling as she watched her disappear. She felt alone, very much alone, and In a strange place, for it was a very strange feeling, indeed, to be up in a | tree. At first she wanted to get down ; and hurry after Mother Bear. But •• that would be disobedience and Betty j Bear knew just what would happen if she did that. Then she began to '. look around. It was queer to be look- Ing down. Never in her short life had she looked down before. She began to wonder how it would look from a little | higher up. The branches grew near enough together for her to reach' them. She climbed a little, and felt j the thrill of adventure. She felt she ! was doing something brave and dar- [ ing. I Then she saw Chatterer the Red Squirrel again. He was peering at her ; from high up In a neighboring tree, | and she began to wonder if she were I doing such a daring thing, after all j for he whisked about and seemed as ; much at home as she was on the i ground. She wanted to be as high as' iie was, and she began climbing | again. Every minute she gained confl- j dence. She found those sharp little claws of hers were to be trusted, ft was the most fun that ever she had had. Copt/right, /JIM. Tho next story: "Betty Bear Has a Pall."
