Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEN THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HBRALD TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 15, TO21 PETER SPIES HAPPY JACK SQUIRREL BY THORNTON W. BURGESS The really clover folks aro those "U'hoVet their friends fur them to ih> The things they i-aimot o'o Tho whole world o'er vuii'll find this true. Rabbit. Peter Rabbit sat at tin: 01 a tree hi the Green Forc-st staring up ut Bobby Coon's doorwuy high above his head and wondering hr-'.v vnuler thu Bun he could find out the things he wanted to know. You know Peter can- not climb at all, and it v.-euld take a very good climber to reach that door- way. "It was silly of me to think I could find out anything by coming over thought Peter. "I don't see any signs that Bobby Coon has been out this winter, and if I had stopped to think, I would have.known that there wasn't a chance In the" world that he would happen to coirffe out at just tho time T came over'hero. I wonder if Bobby really is in there asleep. If I could know that I .would be satisfied." Just then Peter spied an old friend. It was Happy Jack the Gray Squir- rel. He was digginc down tiir, Know for a fat nut he bad buried in the fall. He hadn t seen rtic. i Peter had been sitting very still. Peter opened his mouth to speak to Happy Jack, but closed it again without say- ing a. word. An idea had popped into Peter's head. It ho couldn't climb Sappy Jack could. It would be no trick at all for Happy Jack to run up that tree to Bobby Coon's doorway. He would try to get Hanyy Jack to find out if Bobby Coon was asleep in that hollow tree. It wouldn't do to ask Happy Jack to do it. It would be just 'What are you staring at, he demanded. like Happy Jack to tell Mm that it was none of his .business. He must think of soine other way. Presently Happy Jack Squirrel found the nut he was digging for and up to eat it. It was then that he saw Peter. Peter was sitting at the foot of Bobby Coon's hollow tree with his head tipped back staring up at Bobby's doorway. Happy Jack grew curious. While he ate the nut he star- it. It looked just as it always had. When he hud finished the nut he scampered over to Peter, "What are you staring at, ho demanded. :'Bobby Coon's replied Peter. Happy Jack sat down beside Peter and stared, too. "Well, what's the matter with that be asked finally. replied Reter. "Nothing.

Schwartz's store, to which he, in company with Harry Boyce, had gone. Tho receipt, he stated, was written on Schwartz's ypewriter by Boyce and handed, to er spoke mournfully. Happy Jack looked startled. "Who says Bobby Coon will never poke his head out of that doorway he demanded. "N'obody says replied Peter. "But how do we know he ever will? How do we know be is even inside there? How do wo know where he is or what may have happened to him? ed up at Bobby Coon's doorway. He II, for one, certainly .would miss Bobby couldn't see anything unusual about Coon." "But what makes you think any- thing has happened to Bobby persisted Happy Jack, staring up at that doorway harder than ever. "I didn't say I do replied Peter, still in a mournful sounding voice. "I was simply thinking how sad it would be il anything had. You don't suppose anything has, do "Xo, I retorted Happy Jack. "But it is easy enough to find out whether or not he ia in there. I could find out in two minutes. It wouldn't take me that long to climb up' there." "I wish I sighed Peter. "All right, I'll find said Happy Jack and started up the tree. Peter turned his head to hide a smile. (Copyright, 1921, by T. Vf. Burgess) The next story: "Happy Jack Changes His Mind.''

He absolutely denied that :he words, "if loan not obtainable, :ho mortgages to be returned to the were on the original re- ceipt. The plaintiff contends that these words were there as testified to by the receipt he holds. Mn. Guerin Not Present Guerin denied, as tho plaintiff makes out, that his wife was present when the receipt was signed fact that the receipt was given at Milk River is not denied by either party, but plaintiff contends that it was at a date prior to August 25th, and that the mortgages were signed also at that prior date, but at Milk River and not at Sweet Grass. His understanding, he claims, according to the receipt he bokls, is that the mortgages were to be returned if the Iran of was not obtained. He avers that this loan was for the purpose of paying off his creditors, in an undertaking given by Guerin, but that Guerin-applied it, as he claims, for paying off an indebt- edness of Schwartz to the bank.

Boils are simply caused by the bad blood bursting out; and the bad blood must be made pure before the boils will disappear.

It purifies the blood by removing every particle of foul matter from tiie system, and when this Is done tho boils vanish, and you chould never be troubled again. Mr. James Fahey, Newport Island, Que., "I was troubled with boils on my back and neck, so bad that I was obliged to give up work. I tried several remedies, but got BO relief. Finally I went to a doctor, and he treated me for several weeks, all without benefit. At last a friend told me of Burdock Blood Btttera, to I decided to give It a trial.
