To hfiar poor Bowaer yell.
- It wawn't nice, of him at all,
Nor Is It nice to tell.
-And yet Old Man Coyote Isn't to toe
wholly rblamod for laughing when
liowecr the Hound run straight Into
trouble. Of course, it wasn't a bit

ho much at Bowser
g an at Bowser's
master, who, you know. Is Farmer
Brjpwn's Hoy. Old Man Coyote was
laughing to think how he had been
mart enough to outwit Farmer
Brown's Boy and lead Bowser right
Into the trouble which had been in
tended for him.
W'liun Farmer Brown's Boy had
started out that morning to look at
the trapa he had set' for Old'Man Coy
ote, there had ben a great cackling
and squawking of fright among the
tluks and-chickens, and Bowsep ha,
started right away, to find out what H
meant. ' Right away lie had found the
fresh1 "tratkH of Old Man Coyote, Just
as tMj latter had meant that he should.
In- fart. Old Mkn Coyote had fright
ened the ducks and chickens just so
that Bowser would - try to find out
what the matter was. Off Bowser
had Marled on Old Man Coyote's trail.
Marking at the. top of his lungs. Old
Man Coyote kept Just far enough
ant-ad of Dowser to make him think
that he would catch up in a few mln
VteH. Straight away across the Green
il"u(liw went. Old Man Coyote toward
the fir corner, where his home ( was.
Old Cranny Fox and Reddy Fox
heard Bowwer's voice and they knew
what It meant. They hadrheard It so
often behind them that now they
looked at each other and grinned to
think thut it meant trouble for some
one ele, and particularly because it
meant that Old .Man Coyote was hav-
-ing to run for his life. At least they
supposed- that dial was what he wad
doing.- you know, they have no love
for Old Man Coyote, old Grunny Fox
was very much nurpritted when she
fcaw that he wan running straight for
Ms home. She turned up her nose".
"I always supposed that Old Man
Coyoto was risnably smart," said
the, but I wax mistaken. A 6 months'
old Fox would know better than to go
to his home until he Just had to and
Was sure that he couldn't fool the dog.
Hello, what's that? What's happened
to that silly dog?"
"I always supposed that Old Man
Coyote was reasonably smart,"
Both she and Reddy pricked up their
ears. They heard just what Farmer
Brown's Boy- heard and which set him
to running as fasf as he could yelps
and howls of pain and fright from
Bowser- the Hound, you see. Old Man
Coyote hadn't ueen stupid at all, as
Granny supposed. He had gone
straight home for a purpose, and that
purpose was to get Bowser the Hound
into the very trouble which was mak
ing him howl so now. As he drew near
his home Old Man Coyote had allowed
Bowser to almost catch up with him,
and Bowser had grown so excited that
he couldn't think of anything else.
Now, Old Man Coyote knew just ex
actly where each trap was that Farm
er Brown's Boy had set for him, and
when he reached the first of these he
lightly jumped over it. '
But Bowser wasn't thinking of traps.
He could think of nothing but catching
Old Man Coyote. When he reached the
trap, which, you know, was hidden, he
didn't see or smell, It. He. put one
foot squarely into It. Snap! Two
cruel steel jawa seized Bowser's leg,
and he was a prisoner! He was caught
in the very way that Farmer Brown's
Boy had meant that Old Man Coyote
should be caught. And. sitting down
just a" little way off and laughing at
him, was Old Man, Coyote himself.

"Poor Dorothy!" sighed the hostess
to her out-of-town visitor, when the
last of her luncheon guests had de
parted. "Did you notice how jolly she tried
to be, trying to hide the hurt in her
"1 noticed ehe ate vet-y little, ' spoke
the visitor, "and there seemed to be
something strained about her. She's
changed awfully since we went to
school together." -
"It's that husband of hers. My dear,
if my Will wasn't - such la wonde
among men I'd advise evey girl no
to marry, for I've seen so ipuch mar
ried unhappiness just amorffj the girls
I grew up with. And then, when I
begin-thinking that all men are selfish
and inconsiderate, 1 bring myself up
with a jerk, . because there's Will
and there must be some more like him,
and 1 certainly wouldn't want to keep
any girl from a marriage like mine."
"But Dorothy's husband seemed such
a good sort," said the visitor. "He's
the last man 1 would have expected
to see neglecting his wife for an
pther woman. Why, he positively dot
ed on Dorothy, and he was perfectly
foolish over the babies. I neve: saw
a happier man than Joe was simply
wrapped up in his home and family.
He never looked at another girl till
he-, began going wfth Dorothy; You
know, we girls were all kind'of smit
ten with him, but he never seemed to
care a snap for "any of us until he
'Everybody, is blaming Joe' now;'
said the hostess, ' and pitying In's poor
wire. tsut IT I could get up a tar-
and-feather party, it's the 'other wo
man who Would cet a surprise visit
from some of us wives.
"Joe never- riieant to do anything
wrong. I believe that this minute he
thinks more of his wife and familv
than anything else on earth. But this
woman she isn't even divorced
simply laid her eyeotj him and marked
him for her own. He didn't run after
Tier. He didn't know !- ran aftor
him. But she never let the man get
away from her hypnotic influence from
me rirst moment. It was a little
party here, a cosy tea chat there,
something she must have advice about,
a motor outing that wouldn't be per
fect without him, et cetera. At first
there were a few others invited, but
after a' while be was the only 'one
and the time came when Joe was in
her apartment more than he was home.
"She is a regular vampire woman.
She has done the same thing with
other men. It makes no diffeience
whether they are married or not. She
can wean a man away from everything
that Is good and sweet and who.usorae.
There are some women like tlwt. you
know. They have a peculiar fascina
tion for men. And somehow the men
never seem to realize U. Now you
couldn't tell Joe anything about this
woman. He'd lr.ugh at ;ou and say
you were prejudiced. He believes his
wife is Jealous and trying to hamper
his freedom, because she is fighting to
keep him loyal as a father and hus
band. I believe he sometimes hates
her because she gets in the way of
his championship of the woman who
"I wonder why it is that a man never
recognizes danger in such a woman,"
mused the visitor. "Coming her in the
train there jwas a girl of that type.
All she had to do was to "raise her
heavy-lidded eyea and. look at a man.
and he was immediately her slave.
Even th old men fell all over them
selves to get her attention."
"I presume It's masculine vanity In
the beginning." again sighed the hos
tess. "No man thinks he can be a
lave to any woman, and so he neglects
to fight shy of the temptress before It
Is too late."

"Most everybody has a grouch in
our place." said the dark haired girl.
"We've got a pretty good boss, too,
when it comes to that. He pays as
good wages as anybody, and we're
fixed pretty comfortable. But he's
such an old grouch. He's nice enough
to any of his own women folks when
they come down to the office, or to
any visitors; but he seems to think
the folks that work for- him . aren't
worth treating with politeness. Ar.u
no matter how well anybody does, he
never gives praise. But Just make a
mistake! Wow! He lands on your
neck with both feet and then some.
He calls you down before the whole
office.' Honest, I can't blame every
body for being sore. The people in
our place are just working for tht
money they get that's all. I wish
you could get me a place in your office."
"Our office wasn't always like It
is," declared the older girl. "We used
to have a manager who didn't think
women counted, at all. There aren't
many women in our place, anyway,
and he used to huddle us in out-of-the-way
dark corners, where we never
got a 'breath of air and scarcely had
room to turn around. The men got all
the nice, light places by the windows,
even If their work wasn't as important
as ours. There wasn't even a wash
room In the building for the women!
We had to go to the public toilet in
the office building next door. It's no
wonder the, girls were homesick half
the time, but our manager said that
was the trouble with women in busi
ness they were always sick and you
couldn't depend on them.
"Then the management changed. The
first thing we knew there was an army
of workmen cleaning up the place. My,
how the cockroaches did scatter! And
the mouse nests they found under old
desks that hadn't been moved In years!
And when we girls saw a little pri
vate room just for us being built at
one end of the hall we could hardly
believe our eyes.
"The new manager did away with
the artificial lights and moved all the
desks neaEdfelBwtndows. My eyes got
better right away': He went down the
line, weeded out the incompetents, and
raised salaries that ought to have. been
raised ages ago. And the best of all
was that he always came in mornings
with a chuckle and a 'Good morning
to the whole bunch. Say there wasn't
a face that didn't light up when that
man came around.
"It just seemed like a fresh breeze
went right through that old place and
chirked us all up. We buckled down
to our work and did twice as much
as we ever did. We didn't have to
stay home sick so much. Headaches
are a rarity now. And our business

Carameled Nuts. Boll a cupful of
sugar to the caramel stage, add a few
drops of lemon juic. Blanch some
nuts and drop one at a time into the
sugar, turn each nut well until it is

lift it carefully out with a spoon and

drain the nuts while lifting them out
and enough sugar will remain to form

A decided change in the lines of
dresses always means a change In
the fashioning of undergarments, for
the latter must always coincide with
the former. Up to the present we
have lor some time had only the
smoothest fitting underclothes, with
the minimum of bulk or fulness, that
they would in no way interfere with
close lines of outside clothing. But
now come fuller skirts and, to keep
them company, fuller underskirts. That
does not mean bulk, of course, for
they are made only in thin and supple
stuffs. However, some interestingly
new designs are appearing, and lovers
of dainty lingerie will surely find
pleasure in reproducing them.
In the accompanying cut is shown
a corset cover and petticoat to match

waist The material used is white
crepe de chine, though fine nainsook
or handkerchief linen will work up
The interesting feature of the corset
cover is the double strap arrangement
over the shoulder the second one
forming a sort of shield. The front
closing is cut in square tabs and the
edges of the entire cover are button
holed while a simple design in English
eyelet work adorns the body portion.
The petticoat consists of straight
breadths of material laid about the
waist in flat box folds, run through
with ribbon-strung eyelets and leaving
a self heading. Maybe you will think
this cumbersome, but it will not be so
made up in thin material.

The common hickory nut is espe
cially plentiful and while they are
small, they have a great deal of
flavor and are well worth gathering
to use in cooking and also for salting.
Here is a good recipe for salting
Pour a tablespoonf ul of oil over
every cupful of nuts. Let them stand
in the oil for an hour, and then add
a tablespoonful of fine salt to each
cupful. Stir them well, place them in
a shallow pan and set in the oven
until they are colored a light brown.
Stir them occasionally while they are
in the oven, so that they will be even
ly colored. Turn them into a paper
to dry and shake off the loose salt
before serving. It is not necessary to
use the oil, a small piece of butter
put into the pan is the most usual
way. If desired, the walnuts may be
blanched before salting, by immersing
them in boiling water for a few min
utes and then rubbing off the skins.
