f yAGE TWELVE THE LETHBRIPOE DAILY THURSDAY, JANUARY PRICKLY NO THANKS BY THORNTON W. BURGESS Some people are such iwful cranks You cannot even give them thanks. Peter Rabbit. It suouied to Peter lUbbit a wholt1 lifetime before he heard Shallow the Weasel reply to Prickly Porky's stale that that hollow log was his and that he hud been in it all through the great "That belus go, and I guess it is, for 1 don't see any of yoar tracks around here, that ohl log doesn't interest me.

He saw where Shadow had sat while he talked with Prickly 1'orky and thun where he had gone off j in long bounds. lie knew by those bounds that Shadow probably had gone far away and was not hanging i around. That was a great relief. Then Peter turned to look for Prickly 1'orky the Porcupine. He had reached (lie big hemlock i (reo wlvich lie had half stripped of bark and before tho storm, and was sitting iti the crotch made by the branch. IVtfir hurried over. i "You saved my life.

This takes the form of four charts in circular-form; in the way of blue prints, where the most inquisitive ratepayer can bo quickly and easily satisfied in his search for information.
