LITTLE DEERIE is a
frequent and welcome
visitor at the printing
of the heavy machines
turning out the OutlooTc,
and when he has had
his graham gems he
saunters down the road
to greet the children. Believing that
such a thing as the familiar spirits of
the forest appearing thus in the village
in this ominous hour of a world's cata
clysm bore some great portent for good
or evil, we repaired in haste to Frank
Butler, the sage of the wildwood, who
understands the language and customs
of all the inhabitants of the thickets and
fens. We asked him what it could mean,
this appearance of a stately buck in the
haunts of men, acting more like a book
agent or a government inspector than a
- "Oh him," said Butler, in the easy
and familiar way one might mention the
ice-man or his own brother-in-law, "why
that is Sears Eoebuck. Whether wood
sprite or fairy I cannot tell. But he has
made himself at home among the children
of men in a manner not written of any of
the wild pack since the days of Mowgli.
And he brings with him the manners and
he spin. The lion and the lamb and the
keeper at the kennels are all one to
We went, and there came upon a
strange sight. Sears and the dogs were
busily engaged supping out of the same
cup, and passing the most amenable
the gentle instincts of the forest people.
All day he plays with the children, who
understand his stories. He fears neither
man nor devil, nor dog. Come," he con
tinued "let me show you how he gets
his luncheon. He toils not neither does
comments upon the general cussedness of
the situation. Seeing us approach he
very courteously left the table, and came
out to greet us, apparently interested in
the sugar situation. He gently reproved
Butler for coming empty handed, but
seemed to understand the explanation
that lumps were no longer available.
Sears has a peculiarly frank and
friendly disposition. He plays no fav
orites. His afternoon calling list is the
most cosmopolitan in the town. He ar
rives with ceremony and makes himself
thoroughly at home in every cottage in
the village. He has tea every afternoon
with Mrs. Ormsbee and takes a neighbor
ly interest in the sox-machine. He at
tended the Christmas tree for the
Denham children and selected his own
present from the topmost bough. The
Hitchcocks are his particular favorites.
And he shows more facility in his method
of departure than many an old hand at
the calling game. The other afternoon,
after paying his respects and playing
with the children in the neighborhood, he
looked about up stairs a few minutes,
and then left without waste of time or
tedious fareAvell, by blithely springing
from the second story to the ground.
He has a distinct literary turn of mind,
and is a frequent caller upon Miss Lucy
Priest in the Library.
He runs with the fox and he hunts with
the hounds; he delights no less the grand
fathers than the children in the perambu
lators; he enjoys the landscape which he
adorns, and has made for himself many
mansions, and lived upon the fat of the
land. Truly he is wise beyond his years,
and brings with him a talisman to keep
U3 all from harm.
