LENOX TIME TAPLK. LENOX. IOWA 1 BEDTIME STORY By THORNTON W. BURGESS THE HUNTING SEASON ENDS T HE very worst things come to. an end at last. No matter how bad a thing Is, It cannot last forever. So it was with the hunting season for Llghtfoot the Deer. There came a day when the law once more protected all deer, a day when the hunters could no longer go search- 'tig for Llghtfoot. Usually there 'was great rejolc- ,ag among the little people of the Green Forest and the Green Meadows when the hunting season ended and they knew that Llghtfoot "\ Tell You What It Is," Said Sammy Jay to Bobby Coon, "Something Has Happened to Lightfoot." would be In no more danger until the' next hunting season. But this year there was no rejoicing. You see, no one could find Llghtfoot. The last seen of him was when he was running for his life with two hounds baying on his trail and the Green Forest filled with hunters watching for a chance to shoot him. Sammy Jay had hunted everywhere through the Green Forest. Blacky the Crow, whose eyes are quite as sharp as those of Sammy Jay, had joined In the search. They had found no trace of Llghtfoot. Paddy the Beaver said that for three days Llghtfoot had not visited his pond for a drink. Billy Mink, who travels up and down the Laughing Brook, had looked for Llghtfoot's footprints in the soft earth along the banks and had found only old ones. Jumper the Hare had visited Llghtfoot's favorite eating places at night, but Llghtfoot had not been In any of them. "I tell yon what It Is," said Sammy Jay to Bobby Coon, "something has happened to Llghtfoot. Either those hounds caught him and killed him or he was shot by one of those hunters. The Green Forest will never be the same without him. I don't think I shall wo.ntv to come over 'here very much. There Isn't one of all the other people who live In the Green Forest who would be missed ns Llghtfoot will be." Bobby Coon nodded. "That's true, Sammy," said he. "Without Lightfoot the Green Forest will never be the same. He never harmed anybody. Why those hunters should hnve boen so anxious to kill one so beautiful Is something I cannot understand. For that mat- ANNABELLE'S ANSWERS II>- RAV THOMPSON DEAR ANNABELLEi CAN YOU TELL ME OF ANY REAL TEST OF VIRTUE? SUE. Dear Sue: WOULD YOU BE ASHAMED TO SELL THE OLD FAMILY PARROT TO THE TOWN GOSSIP? Annabellt ter, I don't understand why they want to kill any of us. If they really needed us for food It would be a different matter, but they don't. Have you been up In the Old Pasture and asked Old Man Coyote If he has seen anything of Llghtfoot?" Samtny nodded. "I've been up there twice," said he. "Old Man Coyote has been lying very low during the days, but nights he has done a lot of traveling. You know, Old Man Coyote has a mighty good nose, but not once since the day those hounds chased Llghtfoot has he found so much as a tiny whiff of Llghtfoot's scent. I thought he might have found the place where Llghtfoot was killed, but he hasn't, although he has looked for It. Well, the hunting season for Llghtfoot Is over, but I am afraid It has ended too late." © T. W. Burgess.—WNU Service.

Chicken Is the one meat that is not hard to serve In left-over dishes. A cupful will make a delightful salad mixed with tender celery, and less than a cupful, mixed with crumbs and seasoning, will stuff tomatoes or peppers. The following is a good recipe to keep on hand: Stuffed Peppers. Slice from the stem end of each pepper, making a cup, removing the seeds and white fiber. Parboil the peppers In boiling water five minutes, then drain and chill. For six peppers use the following: Two tablespoonfuls of minced onion cooked In three tablespoonfuls of oil, add one and one-half cupfuls of bread crumbs and one-fourth of a cupful of minced chicken. Season with salt and pepper and add one- half cupful of stock. Mix well, stuff the peppers, place them in a little water In gem pans to bake. RY THIS TRICK By PONJAY HARRAH Copyright by Public Ledger, Inc. ROLY POLY GOLF BALL T HIS Is u dinner table trick that will startle all who witness it. The feat is performed with an ordinary golf ball, which the magician places on the table.. Making mysterious passes, he causes the ball to roll along the tablecloth, traveling In a most uncanny fashion. Anyone may lift the ball and examine It. The motive power Is furnished by a strong thread that runs beneath the tablecloth. On the end of the thread Is a small metal ring, which the tablecloth hides. It Is upon this hidden ring that the wizard places the golf ball. While his right hand makes Its mystic passes, the magician uses his left to draw the thread, which makes the ball roll In a most natural fushlon. The trick Is made most effective by having a confederate pull the thread from the opposite side of the table. In this case the ball will roll away from the magician. WNU Service. Cover the tops with buttered crumbs and when they are well browned the peppers will be ready to serve. Creamed Chicken.

The Luxury of Crime By DOUGLAS MALLOCH T HE tuxblll's here (it comes each year along about this time), A bill for what? Well, quite a lot will go to pay for crime. No goods we take, no laws we break, no evil path pursue, We tote no guns—we're just the ones who pay for those who do. We need no ball, police or Jail, no courthouse on the square Where men are tried, but those outside must pay for people there. In cells they sit and do their bit and think It quite a chore, And put away three meals a day that we are paying for. We're just the great (In ev'ry state) majority of men Who day and night live fairly right, without police or pen. We need no laws or courts, because we never climb a wall— We could go on from dawn to dawn without a law at all. In mills we toll, or plow the soil, a living try to win, Give little time to thoughts of crime —and then the bill comes In. I sometimes think that those who wink at crime have failed to , see, To folks like us who labor thus, it's Just a luxury. © Douclaa Malloch.—WNU Service.

W ELL sir, we've got a detective story to tell today—and a real detective to tell it. He is Richard D. Smith, and he spins us a swell yarn of how he went out looking for clues— and found Adventure instead. Or maybe I should say that Dick Smith found Adventure, too—for he found the clues he was looking for. Dick says he's fifty-one, and feels just ns fit as he ever did. He's a magician now—not a detective. Today he goes around to clubs and parties, giving other people mysteries to think over, Instead of solving them himself. But not so many years ago he was one of the trusted operatives of an Internationally known detective agency. And according to some of the newspaper clippings, Dick must have been a wonder. Remember all those detective stories you've ever read? Most of them start off: "The telephone rang In the office of the detective bureau." Well, this one Is no exception to that rule. The cnly difference Is that this story Is a true one—and the telephone rang In Dick's home, one night In August, 1923, while he sat there listening to the radio. Dick answered that phone. It was the office. The office told Dick to take the night train. for Ogdensburg, N. Y,., way up on the St. Lawrence river, report to the general manager of the Rutland railroad, and see If he could find out anything about 300 bags of sugar that had been stolen from the railroad's warehouse on the waterfront. This Was a Sweet Case—Looking for Stolen Sugar. Dick arrived In Ogdensburg on the following day. He talked to the railroad cops and the local police—he looked the scene of the robbery over. The police knew nothing definite and the scene of the crime yielded In this afternoon ensemble In green, a woolen swagger coat with three-quarter length sleeves edged with natural lynx Is combined with a print silk crepe dress having an unusual scarf-like neckline.

Suppose They Fill? Bunny Groves of New York city is here seen as the Sponge Queen at an aquatic carnival in the British Colonial hotel at Nassau, Bermuda. "It Turned and Rammed Us Directly in the Center." no clues. Then Dick went and looked up a friend In the U. S. customs service whose job was to wntch the river for smugglers trying to run liquor In from Canada. Dick knew that the men of the underworld have very few secrets among themselves, and he had a notion that if he could get the customs men to co-operate by capturing a crew of rumrunners, he could learn something from those rum-runners about the sugar theft. The customs men fell in with his Idea, and that same night, five of them—and Dick along with them—went out in a government launch and hid in a cove a little way up the river. The first night they spent—well—just waiting. Nothing happened. But the second night they spied n dark object out In the middle of the river and waited until It had come across to the American side. Then they sot out full speed ahead after their quarry, and the next 10 minute? were the most exciting of Dick's life. First Blood in Battle of Boats. Says Dick: "When the other boat saw It could not got away, It turned and rammed us directly in the center. The other boat was heavier than ours. Our bout was cut clean In two, and I, with my five friends, was thrown Into the river. Then, not satisfied with having disabled us and thrown us In the water, the rum-runners came back—circled around us— trying to brain each of us as we were trying to got our bearings In the water." There followed the fight of Dick's life. The customs men's guns were behind them In 'the ".recked boat. Dick was the only one who had a revolver on him. "I drew It out and tried to shoot It out with the rum-runners," he says, "but a piece of iron pipe came down from a boat and knocked the gun out of my hand. "The man who was yielding that piece of pipe could work a lot faster than I could In the water. The blow that knocked the gun from my hand also broke the hand Itself. The pipe went up and came down again, this time hitting me a hard clout on the head. I could feel my senses slipping iiwuy from me. Then, for once In my life, I thought my time had coma Dick Learns Why It Pays to Buy Life Insurance. ".My last thought was the satisfying one that I had paid my life Insurance premium for a month. I said to myself that the folks back home would have a house to live In, and n live thousand dollar Insurance policy to live on. Then I felt myself going down under the surface of the water." When Dick came to, they told him that he had gone down a second and was going down for the third time before help came to him. In the meantime an approaching boat had frightened off the rum-runners and one of the customs men managed to reach him with part of the wrecked boat. He held Dick up until the rest of the men could get there. Then, somehow, they all managed to get to the shore. All that trouble for u clue—and still no clue In sight. But after Dick had spent a few days in bed resting up, he went out again with the same crew of men—and another boat. They were after rum-runners, and no fooling this time. They caught them—four of them—and Dick talked to them something like this. You're In a tougU spot now—but It might be worse. Give me a tip on who copped that sagur, and—well—we'll forget we ever saw you. That's the way a lot of crimes are solved. And on the tip-off those birds gave him, Dick got the men he was after. g>—WNU Service. Is Dependent Upon Style of Our Faculties All I have seen teaches me to rust the Creator for all I have not een.

Goose Was Established in Europe Ahead of Man The goose goes far back Into antiquity as a provider of food as well as feathers. It was already established In ICurope before man came along, and with the possible exception of the common hen, was probably the first bird domesticated, four thousand years ago It was regarded as a sacred bird in Egypt, though In so fur as that may translate Into tribute It must be discounted by the fact that the Egyptians early made.lt a habit to multiply their stock by sacred birds In species. There are references to geese In some of the Sanskrit writings, and in the tombs of Luxor figures of geese are Included among the decorations. The Honmus considered goose liver a great delicacy, and enormous numbers of the birds were placed In pens and forcibly fattened by cramming. It was probably some of these geese whose loud alarm saved the lloman capital from the attack of the Gauls in the Fourth century, B. C. In Pliny's time.geese were driven across Europe In flocks from France and Belgium into Italy. And Pliny adds, "Alessalinus Cotta, the son of Messala, the orator, dlscov ered the method of cooking the webs of the goose's feet, and frlcas seeing them In small dishes along with cocks' combs." The Celts are reputed to have the largest responsibility for pop ulurlzlng the goose; from them the Uornans learned the art of rilling cushions and mattresses with the feathers to make luxurious couches wa Old Chiiholm Trail The old Chlsholm trail named after a half-breed Cherokee Indian by the name of Jesse Chls holm, who first used the trail in th 1800s to transport supplies for trad Ing with the Indians.
