PAGE TEN THE LETHBRTDGE DAILY TT3RAIJH MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7, tWt Peter Tells Spooky the Screech Owl AH About It BY THORNTON W. BURGESS One purpose of your tongue you'll find Is to relieve a troubled mind. Rabbit. Somehow, when you have some- thing on your mind, something you cannot understand, or something that troubles you, or something that you you must believe, yet somehow caiubot bolieve, it is a relicff to jtut tell one else about it. even though he may not able to help, you or to understand any better thah you do. After Rabbit popped out of Johnny Skunk's houae in the fir cor- ner of the Old Orchard ii such a hur- ry, he knew that the wtceat thing for. him to do would be to go home to the dwr Old Briar-patch. But he didn't go. No, sir, he didn't go. He didn't start. Somehow he couldn't leave the far corner of the Old Orchard. Pater's curiosity had bwn quite iified for the time being when he had discovered that Jimmy Skunk, or Mrs. Skunk, or whoever it was down there in- that house, was not such a sound sleeper as Johnny Chuck. His one thoufht had been to out of that ttoiiM aa fast as ever he could, and he bad done just that thing. he two or three good jumps away from the doorstep he bad turned and footed back. No one had followed him. Tfcere wasn't a sign of anybody down thtt long hall. Peter waited and wait- ed, but no one appeared. Once more curiosity took possession of Peter Rabbit. There was a mys- tery in that house of Jimmy Skunk's, It lie hadn't been down in there discovered it for himself he couldn't and wouldn't hare believed it. But he had been down in there and dis- coTftrtd it and he had to believe it. Bill eren though he had to believe it, he couldn't understand it. And some- how lie couldn't leare the far corner of'tha Old Orchard, because he hoped that comething -would happen that would explain that mystery. Late that afternoon, when it was beginning to grow dusk, Peter aat at the doorway to Jimmy Skunk's home, aa if he thought by long enough and Blaring hard enough he might understand ttet myttary. A voice startled bim. you planning to ait there all micht. aaked the voice. It came trtm tbe next tree. 'Peter turned startled eyes that way. There In an opening to a hollow in trunk of the tree aai little Spooky Screech Owl, blinking sleepily, hia fABthera fluffed out until he looked a great deal bigger than be really was. "Wnat are you so interested in Jim- my Skink's houae for? You look aa if Ton never had seen it con- "What are you so interested Jimmy Skunk's house tinued Spooky. "I never seen before anything lik> what I discovered down in that hotiae this replied Peter. "Do you mean to say that you have been down in there to call on Jimmy demanded Spooky, opening hii eyes a little wider. Peter nodded. "And was Jimmy at Inquired Spooky, and his eyes opened still wider. Again Peter nodded. said he. "At least if Jimmy wasn't. Mrs. Skunk was. Perhaps both were there. I didn't wait to find out. Do you know, Spooky, something very strange has happened down in there." "Tou don't exclaimed Spooky, and now his eyes were wide open. said "something hsa happened down in there. If Jimmy Skunk Is alone down there he hai grown to be a giant. If Mrs. Skunk is with him, both have grown to be giants." "I want to know! Tell me about cried Spooky. So Peter told Spooky the Screech Owl all about that big room down in Jimmy Skunk's house and how there wai hardly room in it tor Mm to get his nose in. "Only a. giant or two giants could possibly fill a room like con- cluded Peter. And somehow now that he had told some one about it he felt better. (Copyright 1921, by T. W. Burgess.)
