HOWLER VISITS HIS OLD
Jay Bird is just about the best
helper that anybody ever heard of.
And he is an early riser. Many a
morning he had been all over the
woods, eating berries and other
things for breakfast, and was back
at Blackie's house before Blackie
was out of bed. That's just the
way it was on this morning that
we are talking about, only on this
morning ne nad been further away.
He had been over to Mr. Man's
house, and he had learned some
thing that he knew would please
Blackie. But there , wasn't any
hurry about it, and so he sat down
on the doorstep and waited for
uiacKie to nnish nis sleep, After
awhile, when he heard Blackie
stirring inside, he pecked on the
aoor. ciacKie knew that knock
mighty well, so he opened the
door, and told Jay Bird to come
in and nave some of his breakfast.
"It seems to me that you haven't
had a good goose in a long time,"
jay bird said, "and maybe you
would like to know where some
are getting good and fat. There
are two of them and their feet
are hailed down to the floor of
their pen to keep them from walk
ing about and eettinsr the fat. off.
They have been in there for about
a week, and if you had seen what
they have been eating you would
think tney are about fat enough
to eat. Anyway, that's what Mr.
Man thinks about it, and I know
he expects to kill one of these
geese tomorrow and the other one
for Sunday dinner. I heard Mrs.
Man say so this morning. This
must be what you were dreaming
about last night when you let your
pipe go out two or three times.
Mr. Man and his wife are both
going to town today, and if you
know what to do with Rover Dog
you might eat a nice goose."
. Blackie was gnawing a ham bone
right then, but he laid it down on
his plate and laughed. "If I know
what to do with Rover Dog! I
reckon if J don't know what to do
with him, Howler does. Wouldn't
it be just fun for Howler to come
back and spend the day with his old
neighbor that he hasn't seen since
that day when Uncle Joe hit him
so hard? And couldn't Howler
just tell Rover that he had been
living away up in the mountains,
where he had been running deer,
and that he had learned to run so
fast that he would bet just any
thing that he could outrun Rover
and catch a rabbit first ?, And then
couldn't they run off in the woods j
and lool about just as long as we
want them to 7 Here comes Howler
for his breakfast, and I will ask
him whut he thinks." Howler did
not see a thing the matter with the
plans, and he said he really would
like to see Rover Dog.
"I am afraid the other goose
would be lonesome if we should
leave her there by herself, and ro
you had better go and ask Jocko
to come over here, Jay Bird
You never saw plans work out
any better. Rover was just as
glad as he could be to see Howler,
and he listened, with his t
hanging out, to Howler's stories
about his mountain hunts. But
Rover just wouldn't believe that
Howler could outrun him, and they
were right off after rabbits. And
just that soon a big bear and
monkey were putting two i
geese in bags.

The people of Haywood have al

basis is meeting with much favor

theme of live and let live has pre

that is why so many people know
that they can get more for their
money plus the service which
means so much.
