But if you do not understand a thing yoar imagination can make a terrible thins of it mid frighten you half to death. And somehow imagination deir- loves to do this vory thing. Once beforo Peter Rabbit had rall- ied Johnny Chuck In winter nnd had been unable to tell whether Johnny iras really asleep or was dea'd. The feeling that Johnny mtfibt be dead lad frightened Peter so that he had scampered out of. Johnny's house In a and he had never told anybody it In the spring Johnny Chuck had reappeared and Peter bad for- jctten all about It. Now Peter remembered it as he Mt down there in Johnny Chuck's house, Johnny still anil cold in one iedroom and Polly Chuck so still and cold In another bedroom, and. bad ranch Mine feeling that had that tint time. "Of eonrse, they are not dead; they jare simply said Fcter bravely to hlmwlf. hat all the time he conldn.t le jut eomldn't feel sure. "I tried to Taken Johnny that other time, but probably I didn't try hart enough. If they really are asleep, of course, they can be wakened, 111 try. Just to make snre. Of course, they ttmst te Mtoep. Nothing could hare happened en them here." Pint Peter thumped with his hind feet In hall Just oatside the door of Joknay Chick's bedroom. Ht thumped only. Peter can thump. Then be llitmed.

But ma no need. Johnny Chuck didn't stir. Peter couldn't be- lieve it. He jut couldn't. That bile bad been a hard one. Anyway, it had bun hard snongh tu hurt. Peter wan nn of that. But there lay Johnny Chock rollod up tightly In ball (tin and cold. must be dead." muttered Peter mournfully. H> malt be dead.. No could Tight on after nuch a bit. u that sir, It couldat be done. Johnny mttat be dead. Something hare happened to him down here. I wonder If Polly Chuck Is dead too. ni if I can nmken her." So Peter did the same thing! .to Polly Chuck that he had done to Johnny Chuck and Polly Chuck re- mained still and roil It mutt be that too, was dead. Peter began to be frightened. Really there was nothing to be afraid of. Bveo if they were dead there wag nothing to fear. But wzs frightened just the same. Something might kill him down there just as it had them. At least Peter thought that. He turned Gossip From the "Y" Then Peter poked his head hi Johney Chuck's bedroom and called. and hurried up the long hall to the doorway by which he bad entered. He was in a hurry to out o? that fear- some- place. And all the time it wasn't a fear- pome place at all. Nothing had happen- ed to Jobnny and Polly Chuck. They were not dead. Thay were asleep, truly asleep. But it was the strangest ot all sleeps, a sleep from which only warmth could awaken them until U should be time for them to wakea. It is called hibernation.

WHAT ABOUT POLL TAXESf 214 20th Street N., City. Editor Herald: would beg of a little space in your paper'to ask Mayor Hardle what is being done In the matter ot collecting the poll tax. A certain firm in the city were compelled to collect it from their employees. (Some of them girls earning about per week.) Other firms have never been approached. It Is a well known fact that a good many men earning good wages have never been asked for rnent. I would like to ask Mayor Hardie for the figures: (1) For those .who should the tax. (8) For those who heve paid the tai. There has been a lot ot talk recently about the city being short of money.

This flea, which comes from the Orient, usually the Egyptian flea, u this kind Is the most prone to infection. However, there is another carrinr which Is found In America and Europt, which lives upon squirrels as well its rats. Unfortunately, these small carriers of infection may be parasitic upon human as well as rats, and herein lies the danger of the existence of rats in the community, and above all nts wbicb have been brought in upon ships coming from Oriental countries. Bubonic plague has always been In- clined to appear along the trade routes and has plainly been carried from Asiatic seaports to European and Am- erican coast cities.

Eastern countries have liad plenty ot experience in dealing with the .problem, and their methods should be studied in any attempt to offset the plague in this country. It was found that the bred faster than they t could be killed, but that they could be exterminated through starvation and by destroying their nests. Another Important step toward as- suring safety from the menace would be to sterilize all goods carried {m in- coming ships which might be of nature adaptable to carrying these In- fected fleas from tho East.
