Harriet ioked her head aruud th-?

excitement and exertion, and her
thoughtful brown eyes were unnatural
ly large and br.itut.
"I'm looking for pails." she replied.
"We used ti have a lot of them."
'Tails:" echoed Polly. In amazement.
"What do you want with palls? The
big eight-quart is up In the garret. I
filled it with water and put it there for
tire extinguisher. The s:x-iuan is
down in the cellar, full of tomatoes."
A few moments later a loud swash of
water from the attic was followed by
a howl of Indignation underneath the
parlor window, and a small boy. wrath
ful and dripping, tore into the kitchen.
"Who done It '?' he yelled. Jumpir.g up

more cheerful: "three, maybe," he add

"Well, you may have two small ones.

The abused one presently sneaked out
of the woodshed, tightly clutching the
two largest cake the pan had con
tained. "1 wasn't goin" to pick 'em over
to hnd the linle ones." he remarked to
easily soothed conscience.
"What is the matter with that boy?'

Polly's mild blue eyes, so like her
mother's, opened wide as she looked
earchingly at her sister.
"You crazy thing!" she said. "Go up
