Mr. Blair looked across the table at his wife. His face showed affectionate concern, yet his words, when thCy came, gave evidence of the unveneered truthfulness of a husband of 15 years' duration. "Maria," he said calmly, "}'ou look like a picked gull." His wife's face registered a Just in- dlgnatlon. "A what?  she gasped. Her fiusband's explanation carried an apologetic tone. "Now, don't rdffle up your feathers, dear. I didn't mean anything, dear. Just an old saying we had down home when anyone was tired. And you are tired, aren't you, Maria' rs. Blair sighed. *'I'll say I am," he agreed, in up-to,late vernacular. "Do you wonder, Bob?" Mr. Blair [olded his napkin slowly. Then, in the pq.rt2nqu s manner of a an tating a fact hitherto unknown in this _whirling world, an especially allze, Maria, that for the last 15 years, with the exception of a few miserly weeks, you have been 'on the Job' every morning, sending me away with a smile?" Who knew better? Mrs. Blair smiled. =Here is my suggestion. Every morning, during the summer months, as you know, I eat only uncooked breakfast foods. There is absolutely no need of your rising Just to sit at the opposite side of the table to see that I Fletcherize. Get me, Maria?" Maria dll. He continued: "I have decided at the best remedy in the world for you is sleep--nature's sweet restorer. So tomorrow morning we will begin. Impresg on your suhcon- scious mind, tonight, the fact that it is going on vacation, and believe me,: Maria, this rest will do you more good than all the seaside resorts he world--eaten up with mosquls, and lacking the comforts of a home. What do you say?". Maria, from force of habit, and also to keep the peace consented. The next morning Mr. Blair Jumped blithely out of bed. He meant welL Oh! ye.s" he was a good man. But man proposes, and so on. You doubtless have heard this remark of ancient vintage. His foot came in contact with a pin dropped on the floor by some emissary of the evll one. He emitted a howl that would have awak- ened the dead. Mrs. Blair sat bolt up- right_ Her husband was nursing his foot, but immediately soothed her. "It's nothing, Maria--eothing. Just knocked my foot a little. Relax F' And Mrs. Blair "relaxed." aria!" Out of nowhere into the now l Her husband's voice broke in upon dreams. "The milk I Which bot- tle is ours?" She told him, sleepily. Anythin else you want to know" "No, nothing. Sh! Go to sleep." And so weary was she, and so strong the influence of the dream, that nature again Won. For a few minutes, however. Once again a realistic voice woke-her. "Maria, where do you keep the evap- orated milk? Sorry to wake you, butI can't find IL" "On the second shelf, dear, with the caned goods. Do yott believe you can find it, or shall I get up?" Again the negative answer, the softly spoken "Sh" and the exhortation to sleep. But this dream was horrlfyingo pen(tousl She was falling--falling. Would no one save her? Then she sat bolt upright in bed, her sub-conscious mind registering disaster. She heard the clatter and bang of many "remark in her husband's voice not tol- erated in polite society. What would the people in the lower suite think? Bob always gave way to moods, as if he lived In the wilderness. She reached the door, when she was confronted by her husband. back to bed, dear---you prom- Ised. I only knocked down a can or two. Please. Maria In And Maria wearily consented. This time, however, she barely reached the bed when a terrifying hiu and an explosive remark in her hus- band's voice reached her eeething )raln. She fairly flew to the kitchen. In the corner, his huge yellow sides fairly bristling with anger0 sat om- pen, the beloved cat. Never having been subject to the slightest unkind touch, his humiliation  all the more poignant now. Her husband looked somewhat frightened as he aed on the indignant felin "That fool cat,  he raged, $an n_..._u  me when I tried tllft !he Rettle. A little drop of hot water fell on his paw. You would think I tried to kill him. Bah l What a demon !" That's what comes of your making such an idiot of him. Who runs this house? That cat or me?" Ie became slightly confused. Pompon, his rage still unabated, crouched as if to spring. To comfort both was the work of a moment. Another, and she was back In the kitchen, in slippers and kimono. "Don't you think I had better stay up now, dear, it is so lateT" she asked. Isn'tthere something I can do for yOU ?" Mr. Blair, propitiated, smiled. "I'm sorry, dear, things went so badly thls morning. But as long as you're up, and I've made coffee., I think I'll have a piece of that steak we had la night. It was extra good. Is there any left?" This, on her day of restl Her sub-conscious mind registered Work I PELICANS' WAYS 'Tve been given permission to tell the story," said Master Brown Pelican. "There's my cousin, Master White Pelican, and he'd like to tell it too, but the keeper said it was fair to let me tell it. I'm smaller and not quite so beautiful so I have been granted his ab.  ' /: : -:i  .' i': "Fair enough, fair enough," sald  Master White Pelican. "Tell the story, cousin. I'd be glad to hear of myself, too, for you'll tell of me when you're telling of pelicans and their ways, won't you ?" "Of course, of course," said Master Brown Pelican. "There have been so many silly rhymes made up about us. People don't half take us seriously enough. Now they're so apt to laugh the min- ute they see us," complained Master White Pelican. "That is all very true," said Ma tee Brown Pelican. "But still I would rather have rhymes made up about me even If they weren't very good than not to he noticed at all. "And, dear me, I'd much rather people laughed when they saw-am than to have them weep at the sight of/me." "Yes, I'd rather have that, too," said Master White Pelican. "I like to think I'm so cheerful L appearance that they feel like laugh- ing." 'Well," said Master White Pelican, "I suppose it is because of our great long bills or beaks that they laugh. They are very long.  "It is good to have them long," said Master Brown Pelican. "Besides It is well to be generous in things especial- ly in our bills. That is well, indeed." "Well, indeed," repeated Master Whlte Pelican. "Now, Master Brown Pelican,  he added after a momont, "do tell your story of the ways of Pelicans." "You know It "all, Master White PeN iceD." "Ah, yea," said Master White Pel- Ican. 'But I think the next best thing to talking about one's self is to lis- ten to some one else talking about one. If I am not to talk about myself I look forward eagerly to hearing you talk about me--and about yourself, too," he added. "Do begin." "WeLl, I will," said Master Brown Pelican. "And as you have allowed me / "W'm Good Fish Eaters." to tell the story I will tell about you first_" "Kind of you, kind of you," said Master White Pelican. "Well," said Master Brown Pelican, "I think it iS fair that I should be allowed to tell the story because I'm smaller, but I don't believe in the smaller person always having every- thing their own way. h bl creature has rights, too."
