Pull I the curtains please, and make irk." Miss Fuzzy Wuzzy pulled down curtains and" made it dark, ter a while, when it was really t. Uncle Wiggily went to sleep perhaps it was the mystie hour elve when he awoke'and sat up ed for he heard a noise at the ow. h, I think the little elf is coming play more white marbles witn thought Mr. LongearS. And, y enough, jn through the open ow leaped the queer tittle sprite. :a!" cried the rabbit. "I knew would come! Now I will show ;e Jane you are not a dream. II give me some more white les; won't you, little elf?" : you beat me playinij the game 11," said the queer little chap he jumped up and sat crossed like a tailor on the foot of e Wiggily's bed. Reaching into pocket, the elf took out some d, white balls and he and Uncle ;ily began to play a game using of the red rings embroidered on bedquilt in silk. icle Wiggily was a good marble ;r and he had no trouble, in ng the little elf at the game so . iLU i j - i. soon mi raooic . naa quite a.

Then es the little elf waved farewell. Uncle Wi&gily went to sleep. Pretty soon it was morning. Eagerly Uncle Wiggily sat up in bed and called: "Nurse Jane! The little elf came! I played a game with him. I have more white marbles! Come and see it was no dream!". As Nurse Jane came in Uncle Wiggily put his paw. under his pillow, but all he found was a puddle of water. "Oh, "my goodness!" he cried. in surprise. "What happened?" "Just as I thought!" laughed Nurse Jane. "It wasn't exactly a dream, but Jack Frost has been coming into your room these last two nights. He made some round, white marbles out of ice and you played with them. When you put them under the bed and under your pillow the warm room melted them so that, by morning, there was only water. The little elf was Jack Frost and his white marbles were chunks of ice." "Ha! Ha!" laughed Uncle Wiggily. "I guess yoi're right, Nurse Jane. Anyhow my cold is all better!" And so it was, in .spite of the puddle of water under his pillow. For the bunny no longer coughed: "Hoch! Heck! Hick!" Nor did he sneeze: "Ker choo! Ker chow! Ke chee!"
