PAGE FOURTEEN LKTHBRIDGB DAILY HBTtAlJ SATURDAY, FEBRUARY PETER GETS A SHOCK BY THORNTON W. BURGESS Just as ha had stolen down tup long fuill of Johnny Chuck's house on the edge ot Farmer Brown's cornfield down on the Green Meadows, so Peter Eabbit stole down the hall of the houso uudcr tho old apple tree in the far corner of tho Old Orchard. He would take a stop, then stop to listen He would take another stept then stop to listen. Peter had felt very uncertain Johnny Chuck's house, because he know lie had no right in there if John- ny still lived there. He felt even more uncertain in this house. You see, it had been Jimmy Skunk's house, and it might still be his house. That was what Peter was in there to find out. If Jimmy still lived there and was at home and awake he might resent caller, and when Peter thought of .what might happen he was tempted to turn back. But Peter's curiosity was too much for him, and ho kept on very, very slowly, very, very quietly. Just ns in Johnny Chuck's house, the further in he got the warmer it became. Peter had been in this house before. He had heen in it before ever Jimmy Skunk had taken possession of it. So the long hall was familiar to him. There was no change in that. It was Just as he icmembered it. But when at last he reached the end of the long hall he found a decided change. Instead of the snug bedroom Johnny Chuck had had when ho lived there, Peter came to a very much larger room. It was quite clear that Skunk had "wanted more room she moved into this house. Per- haps you remember that she moved an before Jimmy did. Then Peter re- membered the big family Mrs. Skunk tbad had, seven children, and he under- stood the need of that big room. So far there had been nothing to suggest that any one was at home. But neither .had. there been in Jofanitjr Chuck's feou9evPeter hesitated before' poking his head into that big But curiosity had driven him aoVfay and curiosity- wouldn't let him back ofct now. Very carefully, holding-his breath, and with his heart beating fast: .with eicitement, he' poked his head in. There was a good bed there, juit ae there had been in John- ny Chuck's house, a very good bed. It was made of grass and leaves. There was Mme one in that bed. For an instant Peter wondered whether it was Jimmy or Mrs. Skunk. And then Peter got a Yes, sir, he got a shock. That big room was simply filled with a great maas of black and white fur! It that was Just Jimmy, then Jimmy had grown to be a giant! Even if Jimmy and Hn. Skunk were togeth- or had grown to be giants! They completely filled that room, big as it was. Hs had :just time to dlicover this the.t great maia of black and white fur stirred just a lltfle and Peter got another shock. It was evident, vary evident, that Jimmy Skunk was- n't aa sound a.sleeper aa Johnny He'll often pay with sudden fright Who enters where ho has no right. Kabbit. GIRLS! GIRLS!

Absolutely noth ing better, purer, sweeter it any price, mrCo6an ToOet Cttfcm Otatmnl to Talcn to That big room was simply rilled with a great mass of black and white ftm Chuck. He heard a faint, sleepy-sound- ing growl. He didn't wait for anything more. He started back up that long hall as fast as his legs conld take him, ami lie didn't stop on the way. He wanted to get outside more, much more, than he had wanted to find ont what was inside. For the time being his curiosity was satisfied. So it was with a feeling of relief that Peier popped out of that doorway between the roots of the old apple tree m the far corner of the Old Orchard. He took two or three long jumps, then .urned to look Ijaclc. (Copyright, 1921, by T. W. Burgees') The next story: "Peter Tells Spooky :he Screech Owl AH About It."
