Secretly, she had resented her rela

FARM EH BROWN'S BOY gave a long
whistle of surprise as he stared at
an opening undr the stack of straw In
the barnyard. The hanging straw partly
bid It. but plainly it was the entrance
to a hidlns Mace under the stack. Had
he found a small opening he wouldn't
have been surprised, for bs knew that
a strawstack Is often made use of by
some of the smaller peopls wbo wear
fur. But this opening wss big enough
for a Dog.
Farmer Brown's Boy knelt down and
rweoed in. but it was too dark under
that stack for him to see anything.
Mailt awey he thought of Reddy Fox,
-I wondr." said he. "if that sly scamp
has been making his home here right
In our very barnyard. And I wonder
If he Is In here now. Bowser will soon
He stood up and whistled for Bowser
the Hound, wbo was up by the house.
Bowser came at once, wagging his tail

"llere. Bowser: see If anybody la m

Key as be pointed down to the opening
under the stafk. Obediently Bowser

only one good sniff and then backed

In his throat. The hair along bis back

He was Just In time to catch
glimpse of a gray form before
it disappeared back of
Skunk la under there. Both Black Pussy
and Bowser have learned to respect
Jimmy Skunk. That must be who it is,
though Jimmy never in the world made
this big hole under the straw, f Any way,
we'll soon find out"
He started for the barn to get a pitch
fork to tear open that stack. Just as he
reached the barn he looked back. He
was Just in time to catch a glimpse of a
gray form before it disappeared back of
the barn. He ran around behind the
barn. Running across the snow-covered
Green Meadows as only he can run was
Old Man Coyote. He waa heading tor
the Old Pasture. Too surprised to do
anything but stare after him. Farmer
Brown's Boy watched him out of sight.
"Well. I never I" he' exclaimed as Old
Man Coyote disappeared In the Old Pas

how long be has been living under that
