BURGESS It you flnd the front door locked, Try the back door without shame. Both lead to the selfsame thing; All the difference is in name. lUbhit.

The only he can see for a door is a means of getting in or out, and he doean't care a hair of his funny little tail which door It IB 10 long as it is open. So Peter always has an eye open for buck doors as well as front doors. When Peter popped out of Johnny Chuck's house by the front door al- most into the mouth of Reddy Fox, and then popped back in again just in tho nick of time, he found himself in t. fa. He was foolishly afraid to stay in that house, because the feeling that Johnny and Polly Chuck might be dead down there in their beds fright- ened him. Why it should I don't know, for even had they been dead, which they -were not, there would hare been nothing to be afraid of. I sup- pose it was the mystery of it. Mystery frightens more people than real dang; er does. Hut if he was sfraid to stay in that house he was more afraid to go out, with Reddy Foi waiting outside.

FINLAY COMMITTED FOR TRIAL; TRIED TO PASS CHEQUE HERE The man Pinlay, who was arrested oil the charge of false pretences, in passing off worthless by Chief Faulds of Taber, and was wanted for the same offence at other places, appeared at the A.P.P. court, 011 Monday afternoon, before Mr. Humphries, J.P., and committed unless he had something else on his for trial.

But with the mystery of thoM two little friends, Johnny.and Polly Chuck, 10 still and cold down them in their beds, Peter wanted to get out of that house, and he wanted to get out right away.
