THE PINEHURST OUTLOOK
this was in order to frighten away the
devils and it was not cruelty to little
"Tung, tung!" shouted the neigh
bors, running out with pokers and tongs
. and beating them vigorously. Ling
Lee's father was so excited that he lost
his head while he was balancing three
oysters upon a jar of pickled oranges,
and dropped them down Mrs. Lee's
neck. " Tong, long ! " shouted Mr. Lee,
running twining his pigtail into a hoop
and leaping through it four times back
ward. 44 Tong, tong!" shouted Mrs.
Lee, running after Mr. Lee's head, which
he had lost, as mentioned above.
44 Tung, tung ! " sighed little Ling Lee.
The noise had stopped suddenly, and
Teng Moy lay quite still upon her bed.
The old physician was mixing her some
medicine. It was composed of chopped
up spinach and onions, the brains of a
cabbage head, beaten in milk, and two
. clammy claras taken from a plate of
clam chowder. When it was mixed
together it made a draught clearer than
water and sweeter than honey. It had
a slight flavor of catsup, but that was
because of the manner of mixing it.
Little Teng Moy opened her mouth and
drank it. Then she began to purr like a
little kitten, and sat up and smiled.
Everybody went away except the
doctor, and when he had received $5 he
went away, too.
This happened on New Year's Eve.
The streets were white with snow, the
lanterns were shining brightly across
the way, and in every house the pater
familias, or old man, was sitting outside
a dish of fragrant chop suey, while his
wife and children licked up everything
that fell from his spoon. When he was
a kind man he contrived to let a little
drop into somebody's mouth every time
he raised the spoon to his lips.
On the next morning Ling Lee looked
out of the window at the house opposite,
and there, sure enough, was little Teng
Moy. She was thin and lemon-colored
through illness, and her smile was wan.
But Ling Lee knew that she was going
to get well, and he was so glad that he
got out the caper bottle and cut capers
all over the room.
44 Why you cut all those capers?"' asked
Mr. Lee, coming in suddenly.
4 'It is very romantic, but your antic
will drive me frantic," added Mrs. Lee,
keeping one eye out of the window and
the other on Mr. Lee who was balancing
six pots of tea on top of the nut-crackers.
440 popper, Teng Moy is well," said
Ling Lee, clapping his hands.
Land, what a dinner they had in honor
of little Teng Moy's recovery ! In the
seat of honor sat the doctor, on his right
was Mandarin Moy and on his left Mrs.
Moy. Mr. and Mrs. Lee were seated on
either side of these, and Ling Lee and
Teng Moy were side by side at the bot
tom of the table. For a time they were
dumbfounded, so great was their love
for one another. At last Teng Moy
broke the silence.
44Do you like mouse pickled in honey?"
she asked, coyly.
"Not so much as bird's-nest soup,"
said little Ling Lee, yellowing.
The ice being now broken they fell
into conversation, and in the middle of
the meal there was a thunderous knock
at the door. 44Come in," said Mrs. Moy,
and a telegraph boy entered. He hand
ed a missive for Madarin Moy, whose
hand shook as he broke the big yellow
"Tung, tung ! tung, tung !" he shouted,
leaping into the air. "His Majesty the
Emperor has promoted me to the grade
of Tangerine and given me permission to
wear an orange button."
44Tung,tung !" shouted Mr. Lee, balanc
ing a bird's nest upon the fin of a shark.
"Tong, long," cried Mrs. Lee looking
proudly upon her husband.
"Tung, tung !" said Ling Lee, softly,
to little Teng Moy.
"Tong, long !" said Teng Moy, giving
Ling Lee a yard of spaghetti from her
And I think that was a New Year
worth having. Don't you?
The Vain Uon, Io.
44 I've just been told," said the lion to
his wife, 44 that I'm the king of beasts."
44 And so you are," replied his wife.
44 The only pity is that you do not con
duct yourself as a king should."
44 What shall I do? " asked the lordly
44 Well, in the first place you should
dress like a king," answered his wife.
Thereapon the lion went out and pro
ceeded to get what he thought would be
the proper clothes for a king. He
dressed himself up in the best he could
get and then went out to show himself
oft among the animals.
" Hallo, Leo ! " cried Mr. Hippo.
44 What does this mean? "
44 Why, I'm the king of beasts, and
these are my royal garments," answered
the lion, looking proudly down at his
Mr. Hippo leaned back and laughed
loud and long.
44 The king of beasts, indeed," ex
claimed he. 44 Well, you may have been
before you went crazy, but now that
you have dressed yourself up in those
things you are m more than a king's
fool. You are neither beast nor man.
My friend, you've made a mistake.
So the lion went home and thought it
all over and finally beat his wife for
giving him such bad advice.
1. Behead a part of a window and
leave a very hardy tree.
2. Behead a place where a
kind of animals are kept and
piece of dining-room furniture.
3. Behead a hard substance of which
houses are built and leave a stack of
4. Behead a word meaning a bird's
song and leave a small mountain stream.
I bear much, devour much and reach from
pole to pole.
Round aa an apple, deep as a cup,
And all the king's horses can't draw It up.
I've seen you where you never wai;
And where, you ne'er will be.
And yet witbln that very place
You shall be seen by me.
