THE LEGEND sf the
' cTVlORNING .-STARi
THE TWO PETS
X ClilrP" Iudlan Legend
fN ttit lone ( Umi before ths In
dia braves lived in the forest and
bunted and fished (or their rood,
the Manltou or ' "spirits ot the
Woods" made their homo amone the
tree and there rained their families.
On Lbs bank ot the shining OIK Sea
Water lived a very rood Manltou and
hie wife and hi aon and daughter.
Rvery day when the eun Rhone warmly
the aon and daughter played by the
aide of the Bit Sea 'Water; played
with boata of bark and wllh the gaily
colored atonea which they tossed Into
the water and wllh the flowers that
grew alonr the bank. . And every day
when the dark clouds p'.led up and the
rain came down, they played together
In the wigwam: played with atonea and
- moasea and sticks whtch the brother
i was skillful at carving.
And always ar they played, they
talked of the day when they should be
big enough to help In the work of the
world. For above all things else, the
Xlanltoa children long to help their
: fathers and mothers do the work that
' la theirs.
Finally the day came when the fath
er stood his son op by the side of the
wigwam and measured him and ttsted
his strength and decided that at last
the son was old enough to help in the
work all good Manltou do. And that
eame day the nrbther gave her daugh
ter a test of skill and strength and
measured her hair and found that it
waa long and beautiful and announced
that the daughter was now ready to do
the work of a woman Manltou.
So the father and mother took their
children and presented them .to the
King ot tie Manltou that he might
i'laod with Boats Of Bark And Gaily
Colored Stones !
a.svtgn to, them their porV
' The King of the )lani!o
leased with the niiranie f he
two children and praised ihe father
and mother for their k'ooI Care.
. "1 will give to your children." he an
nounced quickly, "the very hev work
that a good .Manltou may do. . You.
son. may be a pud wudjinnie. and
keeper of the trees of the forest.
Guard you well all travelers who 41 axis
your way snd care for every growing
thing." Then ha turned to the daugh
ter. "Tou. beautiful maiden, shall be
honored above all Manltoii. Tou shall
be carried up Into the heavens and
shall brighten the dawn of day."
The brother and sister Manltou
were very happy tiU they happened to
think that their duties were so far
spart as far apart as the earth and
the sky and that probably they
would never araln play together.
They wried slowly back- to their
home by the Bir Sea Water and there
they sat down and talked over' all the
soou times they had ever had. And
the more they talked, the sadder and
sadder they became at the thought of
parting; till the sister saw that. If they
were to part in happiness, they must
talk of aomethlng else. r. '
"Oh. my brother." she said with ja
quick smile, "think of the honor that
has been done me! Never before has
a Manltou been sent up 10 the m.
ens. I will live in a beautiful cloud,
the color of the morning sky-a-axe you
not glad and proud for nief ru
"That I am." replied the "brother,
"but alas! I know that Ju.it because
you will live In such a beautiful claad,
you will soon forget me your earthly
brother and playmate!" .Vf.jj
How can you say that!" ndsloMi)
the sister. - "Tou know 1 shill always
love you! . And to show jtou-thuL I
never forget you. each morning 1 will
smile at you Just before the. 4twD.
And 1 -will watch you work, here
among the 'trees and each .day.that
your work Is well done I wlll : swule
and send you my blessing just feeson
the sua comes over the rim o-che
world." - a
So the brother was much comforted
and played with his sister all that list
day. Just at night fall, the four winds
of the heavens carried the sister to the
sky and there she baa lived ver since.
Her brother waited Jby the Big 8ea
Water till morning-; and wUeD h aw

her new pet would feel happy and at
home with company "so near by. And
no doubt he did for he sang and sar.g
and gave Ruth the happiest kind of a
birthday g-.wtlng. '
After breakfast Ruth had her first
lesson In housekeeping for pets." She
learned to Rive Dicky ith.T was the
namehe had long ago derided to give
her bird If she ever hud one) hi tub.
to clean his cage and to fix his water
aird aeed and everything Just as he
would like tn have It. And - she
'bought it was all such Interesting
work. ' .
Ellen thought It was Interesting
work too and the had almost a. good
a time watching as Ruth did working.
'Ellen was three, far too young, of
course, to take care of a bird, so she
didn't "bare m. .
Every mortis Jfor a whole week
Ellen watched the process of cleaning
and feeding. She watched Girth's
care of -her -pet and she longed oh. so
very murti-for a- pet of 'her own.' And
-then she remembered 'that It was !
imost her birthday time. - i --
"Cant I have a pet tor my hlrth-
joay?" she asked. "I'd take such good
loare of 11 and feed it and I'd nver
forgot It never'.",
I "You dont know what this letter
! says." said mother as she Just at that
Iminute nnlhrd reading a letter the

postman had hunded her. "or you
wouldn't be worrying about a pet."
"Wouldn't- I?" exclaimed Ellen.
"Then am I going to get one?"
But her mother wouldn't tell a
single word and Ellen had to wait a
whole week till her birthday came
around. And then, at her birthday
fcoakfaat, not a thing happened. Oh,
ot course she got pretty gifts and her
favorite breakfast and all -that, but
not a sli;n of a new pet waa to ha
Seen. Ellen smiled and tried not fe
care but she couldn't help but wish'
Ing that something would come to her
something she wanted very much. "
And then. Just as Ruth wss ready
to fix Dicky for the day the door bell
rang. 4 '
Ellen, being the birthday girt, was
allowed to go to the door and what
do you suppose she sawf An express
man with a great big package that
looked Ilka a cage only 1t wasn't a
real cage. .. ; ' '
- The children' mother -came' and
signed the book and then expressman
helped them open the bog, and 'what
do you-, suppose ran out the minute
there was a crack to run through? A
tiny little Jet black klttyl And around
her neck was a ribbon and on the rib
bon was a card which sal. "Happy
birthday to Ellen Trom" Aunt Ellen."
You can guesa there was scamper
ing In the'house for a white, for Jet,
that waa the name Ellen gave the kit
ty, had to eealIover the place. But
the real excitement came when' Ruth
Anally started -to fix Dicky. Jet didn't
like Dicky! He humped up hid back
and made the- awfullest ace The min
ute' Ruth- took -the cage down. So
Ellen picked him up and carried him
out to the kitchen and there he had to
atay till Dicky was nxea ana num
