LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA Bedtime $tor ton WBwr^ess ' cX.-A'&lA^ MR. AND MRS. QUACK ARE STARTLED I T WAS the evening of the day after the closing of the bunting season of Llghtfoot the Deer. Jolly, round, red Mr. Sun had gone to bed behind the Purple Hills and the Black Shadows had crept out across the Big River. Mr. and Mrs. Quack were getting their evening meal among the brown stalks of the wild rice along the edge of the Big River. They took turns In searching for Suddenly a Little Splash Out In the Big River Caught Mr. Quack's At- tentlon. the rice grains In the mud. While Mrs. Quack tipped up and seemed to stand on her head as she searched In the mud for rice, Mr. Quack kept watch for possible danger. Then Mrs. Quack took her turn at keeping watch while Mrs. Quack stood on her head and hunted for rice. It was wonderfully quiet and peaceful. There was not even a ripple on the Big River. It was so quiet that they could hear the bark- Ing of a dog at the farmhouse a mile away. They were far enough out from the bank to have nothing to fear from Reddy Fox or Old Man Coyote. So they had nothing to fear from anyone save Hooty the Owl. It was for Hooty that they took turns In watching. It was just the hour when Hooty likes best to hunt. By and by they heard Booty's hunting call. It was far away iri the Green Forest. Then' Mr. and Mrs. Quack felt easier and they talked In low, contented voices. They felt that for a while at least there was nothing to fear. Suddenly a little splash out In the Big Elver «aught Mr. .Quack's.-attention. As Mrs. Quack brought .her head out of the water Mr. Quack warned her ,to keep quiet. Noiselessly they Swam among the brown stalks until they could see out across the Bis River. There was another little splash out there In the middle. It wasn't the splash made by a fish; It was a splash made by some one much bigger than any flsh. Presently they made out a sliver line moving toward them from the Black Shadows They knew exactly what It meant. It meant that someone was out there In the Big River moving toward them. Could It be a boat containing a hunter? With their necks stretched high Mr. and Mrs. Quack watched. They were ready to take to their strong wings the Instant they discovered danger. But they did not want to fly until they were sure that It was danger approaching. They were startled, very much startled. Presently they made out what looked like the branch of a tree moving over the water toward them That was queer, very queer. Mr Quack said so. Mrs. Quack said so. Both were growing more and more suspicious. They couldn't understand it at all, and It Is always best to be suspicious of things we cannot understand. Mr. and Mrs Quack half lifted their wings to fly! © T. W. Burnesa.—W1TO Service. Animal Suicide The question of animal suicide has been much debated. It seems more or less clear, however, that the actual Intention of self-destruction Is absent and that It Is merely circumstances beyond the animal's control which cause the apparent deliberate death. One example Is the lemming, the small Norwegian rodent, which appears in countless numbers every few years and marches steadily westward, eating everything in Its way and finally plunges Into the Atlantic to perish. The cause of this Is evidently some primeval Instinct which is connected with the well-known natural law of overproduction In order to perpetuate the species.

ANNABELLE'S ANSWERS By HAY THOMPSON DEAR ANNABELLE: DO YOU BE LIEVE THAT A GIRL SHOULD USE PERFUME TO MATCH HER MOODS AND EMOTIONS?

And so in the kitchen each day we Intern us, Or sit by the fireplace and pile on the splinters, Not much like the cordwood of old fashioned winters. Three days without heat, and the family shivers. Or late In the morning still clings to the klvers, And all because something un known, unsuspected. Went wrong—that n gleeful young salesman detected. And yet the unfortunate, woe at IU summit, Are those who have trouble and learn nothing from It. The greatest misfortune, whatever our sorrow, Is, having it, not to be wiser to morrow. When furnaces fall, or when an.v thing falters. Let's hope that our viewpoint ac cordlngly alters, Experience teaches us, children or father, Some truth that repays us for nil of our bother. Three days without heat, but again when we get It In living room, dining room, bed room, I bet It Will make us appreciate that slm pie blessing We took without thinking or doubting or guessing.

At tnat time, a bunch of American cowboys were staging a rodeo at the Crystal Palace In London, and they had the whole doggone conservative town talking about the capers they cut up and the monkeyshining they did, at hours when the show was all over and they were supposed to be in bed for the night. hn , 11 '° s . e cow l'"nchers rode down the husiest streets in London, on horseback at full gallop, letting out "yips" and "whoopees" until the Londoners' fnrlnfc, n f, * f^ thG hnt3 0fC ° f L ° D(lon CO P S ' anu " (lr <H>P«l their ini « « , ,? n<3 ° f L ° ndon Sentlemen, wrinkling their Immaculate collars and discomposing them most horribly, bah Jove I Winifred McEvoy thought they were a bunch of roughnecks-and so they were. I mean It takes a roughneck to reason with a regiment of cows. Few college professors have ever made a success of It. Cowboys Were Wild and Fearful Creatures to Her. Winifred never expected to meet one of these cowboys face to face, ir one of them had come up and rung her front door bell, she'd have run screaming for the police. That's how scnrod she was of those wild and woolly westerners. Hut one day she did meet one-nnd she has never had any cause to regret It. Now it so happened that the whole McEvoy family were pretty keen on aviation. Winifred's husband had been an officer n the Royal Air Force and had flown a sky buggy all through the World war. And after this thing I'm going to tell you about had happened, he said that he'd often been scared during the war but he'd never run across anything In the line of fright like the terror he felt just a second or two before that big Texas cowboy went Into action. i.,o, Th T , wns " hlg neronniitlcnl exhibition singed at llendon, In July, U24. and the McLvoys went up to see It.

BALANCED MAICH I ilti feat of balancing a large •»• wooden match would appear to be a bit of clever Juggling, it makes an excellent impromptu trick. Particularly because the match is balanced on the back of the left thumb. This makes It seem more difficult, and people will talk about the skill and practice that they think has been required. Actually the balanced match depends upon a clever bit of deception, and anyone can do It, once the secret has been learned. Set the match upon the Joint ot the left thumb. Bend the thumb Inward as you do so; then straighten It. The base of the match rests In the deep crease that lg formed. You will have to use a bit of care to keep the match upright. But the real work is done by the crease and the slight wavering of the match will make the stunt look llkr an actual feat of Juggling.

He kept saying: "Want to sit down," and after n while Winl fred's husband set him on the ground between him and bis wife Then he bemiiie absorbed In the exhibition again. Winifred was absorbed in that exhibition, too. She, herself, had been attached to a flying unit during the war, and she was as interested In aviation as her husband. Planes were zooming and stunting all over the field, landing and taking off so fast you could hardly keep count of them. And the next thing Winifred knew, she looked down to where her baby should have been— where she could have sworn he was—and—well—he Just wasn't there. Frightened, Winifred cast a quick glance out across the field And there she saw something that fairly made her heart stop beating. A plane hud Just landed and was taxiing to n stop fifteen or twenty feet nway from the ropes behind which she wns standing. And toddling across the field right Into the path of the plane was—her little hoy. Youngster Wanders Into Jaws of Sudden Death. Says Winifred: "1 was ten-Hied.

"Crying my husband's name, I attempted to clamber under the ropes, when I heard a quietly compelling voice that even reached my hysterical understanding. The voice said: 'Don't get excited, Ma'am,' and then I saw something happen that I didn't think possible. "I felt a Jerking movement beside me, heard a swishing sound and saw n rope settle down around that bnby form. In a fraction of a second he was pulled to the ground and drugged to safety, out from under the whirling blades of the propeller. A Life-Line Floats in From Heaven. "It all happened so swiftly that the crowd (who were craning their necks at a particularly daring exhibition up above) didn't realize what had occurred. As I reached for my baby, the rope was deftly flicked from around his body. He was slightly disheveled, but quite unhurt And by the time my husband and I realized that we really had a son' our cowboy friend was gone. "I had a hazy recollection of a very large Stetson, strong hands on a rope, and a wonderful voice—but we were never able to find our baby's rescuer. I hope—If this story is ever published —that that quiet voiced man will see It, and I know that he has the constant prayers and gratitude of a widowed mother who has now only the son he saved for her."

Its colors present a strong contrast. The head, neck, breast, buck and thighs are deep black, the top of the head green-glossed; wings and tail glossy, with violet and other metallic reflections; shoulders of the wings and under parts pure white. This striking anjj, jiandsome bird, says a writer In the Montreal Her- aid, is seen everywhere from the Plains to the Pacific coast, from the borders of Mexico to northern Alaska, and it breeds wherever It lives, not being migratory, though wandering about In winter In small troops, whlph keep In the shelter of timber for the most part. Its original and proper place is In the mountains, where it makes Its home In wooded valleys.
