It was already past his. bed- time. Spooky blinked. He blinked again. It was hard work to keep his eyes open. Ho was sleeps. Ho was very sleepy. But Spooky was not yet ready to go to bed. There was some- thins he wanted to and the only way to find it out was to tit right there and keep watch. Between blinks he kept his eyes on the 'doorway of Jimmy Skunk's house. It was between the roots the very next appio tree, the last one in the far corner of Old Orchard. Nearly all winter Jimmy and Mrs. Skunk and their seven children hail slept Sown In that house.

Spooky Had not seen them come out but he had seen them return just be- fora daylight'the viext morning. He had counted them as ihev went in and they were, all there, nine of them. A week later he hail seen them return again, but this time they were not fat and they no longer waddled. Xor had they come home together. They had come straggling in one at a time. And that night Spooky had harder work to catch a dinner. He had.'huntod and hunted before he -found a sinsle Mouse.

The committee began hero fliree-day session at which plans fo tho campaign were to be furthered and a movement iu opposition to tli open shop to be advanced. Tho committee also has before 1 preparation for the national conven tion to be held at Detroit in May o June, of subjects for consideration suggested by local unions. Tho inos important Hem of business bct'ore the national convention, it was said i would he action on tho proposal t j affiliate with tho Communist (third i Internationale. The 21 stipulation j laid down by the Moscow body for United States affiliation are to be con sidered. according to William Feigen baum, director of publicity, who said alternative propositions of accept ance or rejection of all the condi ESTABLISHED 17SO don't ranch care which, so long as they stay away from here." Of course Spooky didn't realiy meau that. He would have been sorry to leani that anything had happened to those youngsters of Jimmy Skunk. It was just because he was feeling so bitter and upset. He was no lomjer blinking. He was wide awake now. Presently he saw two of Jimmy's chil- dren return and enter tho house. A _ little later one, dressed all iu black, i a handsome fellow, returned. Spooky continued to sit there in his doorway until the Jolly Littlo Sunbeams hurt his eyes, but not another young Skunk did he see. Then he went to bed feeling better. It looked to him as i if Jimmy Skunk's family was growing smaller. The next morning only Jimmy and Mrs. Skunk and the handsome young- ster all in black returned. Spooky slept even better that day. Two morn- ings after Jimmy and Mrs. Skunk were the only ones who returned. Then Spooky knev.- that Jimmy Skunk's children had at last gono out I into the Great World to make homos for themselves, and that day he had the bust sleep he had had for two weeks. There would bo better hunting now around tlio Old Orchard. As for Jimmy and Mrs. Skunk, they dfdn't appear to miss their big family at all. Perhaps that was because now they found it easier to get a living. As Spooky had said, those' youngsters were big enough io take care of them- i selves.
