"I can make It to rhyme or not. to rhyme. Whichever you like." "Let's vote ' rni it," suggested Mrs. John, "i never liked to vote but it seems to be Ihe only way to rind out just what people want." "it's a good idea." said Mrs. Mpratt, "Let's vote.'' So Ntincy and Nick took small pieces of paper and passed around to all tho people on Pippin Hill and they wrot» on them "yes" or "no" according to their views. The yes's had II, so the. Riddle.

Mrs. Cr»bshaw: "Does your father tako any Interest in your school work?" Willie: "Since I've been studying chemistry he sometimes asked me questions about the homebrew."—American Legion Weekly. "There Is a chap who bothers us a teasing, freezing fellow, j Ho comes late In the autumn and I mid turns tho leaves all yellow Shakes sugar on the pumpkin, anil sugar on the grape, But. leaves the corn and all the fiowcrs in dreadful shape. He nips the rose and dahlia, the golden-rod and phlox. And ruins all tho liny leaves of privet, hedge and box. He jumps upon tho rat-tails all sleek and velvet brown. And slits their jackets up the back and musses them with down. Ho dusts the fences, fields und trees with powder white as milk. And slyly cracks the milk-weed pods and spills out all the silk. Ho spends the winter braggiug about tho tilings he does. Ho paints designs on windows— great ferns of musty fuzz. He freezes hard the water in lily pond and puddle. And chuckles like a silly goose when things get in a muddle. And all the Utile turtles and fishes In the river, Turn slowly Into chunks of Ice and haven't room to shiver." "t.Uiodness! That's nn easy one," said Mister Hunting "It's Jack Frost I know That's why f go hunting for rabbit skins In the fall—to keep him from nipping my family" "Right."' said the Riddle Lady.
