A stei^p hill on which grow a lol of low shrubs betted them very much, mid they put lllln behveell Ihe gy|ssi03 and themselves immediately. .Not a Hlnglo dog harked to give iim alarm. Perhaps they v. i-ru really glad, to sea 1honi go after the hooking and butting they h»d had. Not many milc-a past the gypsy camp Hilly and Nannie entered a auiall town, and on the oulnlilrtji limy wiw a man sprinkling his lawn. The water looked so cool and refresiliing to the tired, imj traveler;,- that they decided to urn a ili'liik then -and there.

They found a niifc place on the sideof a hill where the home could'be built. They drew a plan of the hrJTise and it was fine There was to be a tiny little room for each,little dog. There was to be a tiny cot and a little straw nialtress in each room. On each floor there was to he a bath. When the plans were completed one little Don Dad Mother said "Now that everything is arranged, where will we get the money?" Another little Don Dad lady said "Oh.-let's have a tag day, then everyone can give something- to help build the home," and it was decided. , Thedadies had little tags printed ami when the-day came, on every corner of every street was to be found a little iloot!,Dad lady with little red tags in one hand and a-coin box in the other. What a time' they are having! liefore Old Man Grouch left "home he .siren roc) ;i hajg-e chain and two big pad locks. He fastened both of his pockets with*the huge pad locks and left the keys in his bureau drawer. The poor little Don Dad lady doesn't knoxv what to do. Old Grouch is surely a stingy old rascal. Not so, Doctor Sawbones. Before he left home he filled both pockets with shiny new coppers; he has purchased a tag- from every little lady whom he has passed and he seems very well pleased with "himself. Old Sleepy Sam is almost as bad as }dr. Grouch. Four of the little Doo Dad.ladies have tried to awaken him but thcyTouJr] not. Sleepy Sam. snoo?.es away while the little Doocl Dads crawl to the top of the fence and ladel out his ice cream. Sam had better stay awake and watch his business if he expects to make any money. Nicholas Ntitt thought be would hitch Tiny to his wagon and rush through Ihe town. Jt might have worked, but a pleasant little lady smiled at Tiny. Tiny just had to stop to be tagged and now Nicholas will have to pay. In the hotel, the traveling men have been biding, and now, while the lady collects from the little chap with the cigar, one is making liis escape. He'll be caught at the next corner, though. Look at the big fat lady running affer the big fat salesman! She has forgotten about ( the hole in her coin box and iRoly and Poly will have a fine time. All day Flatmelfeet had avoided the ladies, but he couldn't know of the one that was waiting for him behind the board fence Klanuclfeet is iu for it now. It would have been much better if he had bought a tag early in the morning, then he could have tied it to one of the shiny buttons of his uniform and strutted aboukthe streets from morning until night. to ae.e hint before dinner. Wliou he came hack at 2 o'clock uftcr eating his <ltunor itho m»n was distil. That ovening at S o'clock In tho shadow of a very-fine moon, the lnau was placed on a plank anil tipped off into tho water. Tho captain read tho core- monlal which accompanied hurlalu at sea. The body was sowed In a -blanket and weighted down with old iron, as is Ihe cii'-'om. On a majority of ships, Mr. .Smith aayH, persons who din ar^ sea are buried at soa. On a few of tin* tho greater Bhlps facilities are available fur embalming bodieH. Tho dead man was on his way to Buenos Aires to visit his son. The pitiable side of this man's death, friendless and alone at sea, and unable to speak a word of English, Impressed Mr. Smith, and the memory BtlU la a melancholy one. Not Through Globe Trotting. Mr. Smith plana io start on another trip In the fall. Ho plans to visit Samoa, -the Hawaiian Islands, Fiji Islands, New Zealand, Australia, Borneo, Java. Sumatra and other cdiintrlos, returning via Chlua nnd Japan. Thin -was the* (rip lie. had planned when a chaneo copy of the Geographical nmg- aainu changed his plans.
