to his great joy he found almost
exactlv what he wanted. Lying
near a heap of chips was a:

with a black tip. That was thej
only drawback about it. j
" This tail, however, was so:
handsome that Jimmy made up'
his mind that he would wear it,
anyhow, even though it did not'
match his coat. So with a bit of
string which he had carried with!
him for weeks for that very pur-i
pose, he tied the red tau to nis

There was great excitement
among the forest-people when
Jimmy appeared among them.

his head, and muttered some

the disease is now prevalent over
many sections of the country.
It has baffled the medical skill to

that the best cure Is prevention.
The surest prevention Is to build
up the bodily powers of resistance,
and to get the system into the best
