Suddenly a cautiously, listening tflerce. terrible voice rang through Hooty and Mrs. Ilooty 1, He didn't out of his hiding sure Ilooty and Mrs. Hooty had re- j tired for the day. Then he moved very adventures of tbe north. Out of them came u series of stirring novels, such as "Pardners." "Tbe "The "The Auc- tion Block." "Tho Heart of the Sun- set" and life "Iron Trail." Several of! Ilex Beach's novels have bceu made i into photoplays-; I Mr. Beach lirst broke into playwrit-! ing in Alaska.

Peter cut a long hop f short right in the middle and stopped right where lie was, while chills ran all over him. After a while he very softly crawled under a thick hemlock [branch and sat down. f thought Peter, "that was a narrow escape! Hooty the Owl must have been sitting bn the top of xthat tall dead tree just ahead. If lie 'Imdn't hooted just when he did I would have hopped right into his claws. I must be more careful. I cer- tainly must be more careful." Just then Hooty's terrible voice rang out again. "Yes, continued Peter to himself, "that is just where he is. That is one his watch tow- I had forgotten all about it. Hello! There's the voice of Mrs. Hooty! I guess the Green Forest isn't a healthy place for a Rabbit to be roaming about iu tonight.

Nothing happened, and presently Peter came to Bobby Coon's bouse. At least it used to be Hobby Coon's j his rivals even catch uj) to him in bouse. Peter supposed tluit it still! his performances in the air was. but he couldn't bo sure. There; The aerial stunts he does in this' were no gigus of Bobby. There were no picture are almost past belief ami T signs that he had been out of that every moment he is before the camera house all winter. Peter knew that; is one filled with thrills and suspense i Bobby had lived there all through the j for the audience. Rising from "the1 fall, and until this minute it hadn't oc- aviation in :m ordinary plane--' cnrred to him that Bobby might have i not u stunt soars thous- chosen another house in which to ands of feet above the" ground ami i sleep through the winter.

So Peter made himself comfortable and iu two winks was asleep. Several times he was awakened by Hooty's terrible voice, for it was .a moonlight night and Hooty and Mrs. Hooiy could see to hunt all night.
