"I've been to a meeting: of the Circle."
Ma answered calmly, as she removed her
bonnet and folded her shawl. .
"Umph," T. Psr minted, " 'nd I spose

T. Paer asVd.- diplomatically shifting
the conversation, "take out its phone or

"We're going to protect the state
seal?" Ma answered enthusiastically.
"We ain't going to : let people tramp
around on it any longer. '
"The sfate. seal?" T. Paer puzzled.
"When'd the state get into the zoo busi

"in the middle of the floor up at the
State House nd everybody walking on
It all day long." ,
"Where's the fish: commission V -T.

"Well 111 be ; tig swiazled," T. Paer
muttered. "What do you want to pro

So people won't walk on It," Ma told J
nun. "it s a shame to let 'em do that."
"Why?" T. Paer asked her. "They've
been doin' it for 15 years ain't they?"
The state seal is sacred." Ma contend

"We're going to put a ornamental Iron
fence around it?" Ma told him.
"That'll be all right if you put spikes

It Does Seem Possiblo
Mrs. Bear, Changes Her MJnd
By Thornton W. Bsrgess
Th point of iew, it mmi to mi,
- Impends en whs it tip the tre. "
" Firmer Browo'l Boy.
WAS Krm"r Brown's Boy scared ?
' Ask Sammy Jay he saw. Ask
Chatterer the Red Squirrel he saw. Auk
Blacky the Crow he saw. Ask Peter
Rabbit he wss there. Ask Reddy Fox
-he waa watching.
Farmer Brown's Boy was as badly
scared a boy as ever drew breath. Never
was timid little Whitefoot the Wood
Mouse. . whose daily life is one scare
-after another, worse scared.- Never was
Peter Rabbit more thoroughly fright
ened. If he hadn't known before. Farmer
Brown's Boy knew now exactly how the
little people of the Green Forest and the
Green MeadowS feel when cornered by
an enemy from whom they, can expect
no mercy " ' ' ' "
You see. Farmer" Brown's Boy was up
-a tree and at the foot of it, looking up
at him with wicked-looking little eyes,
red with anger, was a great Brown Bear.
It was Mrs. Buster Bear. It had been
a lucky thing for him that Farmer
Brown's boy had been near a tree which
he cowld climb. : As it was, he had
reached it none too soon. Not even Chat
terer the' Red Squirrel could have scram
bled up that tree much faster than did
Farmer Brown's Boy.
- He didn't even rook down until he was
half way up. Every second he expected
to feel the claws of Mrs. Bear. Half way
up he looked down, Mrs. Bear was stand
ing up at the foot of that tree as if try
ing to make up her mind whether or not
to climb up aftejr him. She was growl
ing way down deep in her throat, .Those
growls were deep, grumbly, ruinbly
growls,' and they' gave Farmer Brown's
Boy a prickly feeling all over. 1;. u
He yelled at Mrs. Bear, for somewhere
he had read that most wild animals are
- frightened by the sound of the human
voice. Mrs. Bear simply growled more
than ever and he little eyes snapped. It
was clear to her that this two-legged
creature was afraid of' her, very much
afraid. - If he was afraid, there waa-. no
reason - for her to be afraid, and . she
wasn't. Those yells didn't frighten her
a bit ' i .: . ; - . :' .
Only for a few minutes 'did Mrs. Bear
Jieeitate.- Then she started to climb that
tree. Big 1 and- clumsy looking as she
was, she climbed fast. ' So did Farmer
Brown's Boy. My goodness, 1 should say
he did ! Up he went as near the top of
that tall tree as he could get His ne
hope was that Mrs. Bear was so big and
. heavy that she would not dare climb way .
up there where the trunk of the tree
Big and clumsy-looking as she was;
she climbed fast.:
was so small that it was U- he could
do to cling to it. ' , f V - " ''
When she reached the place half way
trp where Farmer Brown s ;Boy .had
stopped Mrs. Bear stopped. All the time
she was growling way down deep in her
throat, as if talking to herself. She
seemed to be trying to make up .her
mind, again whether or not this two
legged creature was worth keeping on
after. Her ; wicked-looking little eyes
were still red with anger. It seemed to
Farmer Brown's Boy that never had he
seen such wicked-looking little eyes.
Probably he never had. ;
, Once Mrs. Bear made a move as if to
keep on up and Farmer Brown's boy
yelled again, t Then ' Mrs. Bear looked
over to the great windfall where she
made her home. : Old Man Coyote had
Just arrived. He had heard the excited
screaming of Sammy Jay and Blacky the
Crow and had come over to see what was
going on. He was standing near the en
trance to Mrs. Bear's bedroom under the
great windfall. ' i .:- I
Suddenly Mrs. Bear changed her mind.
With another look up at Farmer Brown's
Boy and a deeper.' uglier-sounding growl,
she"- began to ' climb - down. Farmer
Brown's boy gave a great sigh of relief..
He would stay .nip there in that tree until
Mrs. Bear grew tired of waiting for him
to come down 'and went off about her
business.-' ' i H
