That is the way it is in this world. Things that niiiko some- people happy make other people sad. You i'.i-ver IMII teli. No, f-ir. you never cun tell. Yuu never win It'll at all.-You know hmv i it is with food: you like eertain Uiiuss, and cannot bear other tilings; other i people like those things and caunot bear the things you like. It is just like that with fears and worries. When I'eter Rabbit found iliat Jim- my Skunk and bis family were through with their winter sleep and I had come forth to onee more have a part in the doings of the Green Mea-1 dows, the Old Orchard and the Green I Forest he was delighted. Jimmy was) an old friend and it was good to see Jiiin about again. The tact that Old fc Mother Nature had awakened liim a sure sign that sweet Mistress Spring would soon arrive and with ner the gladdest, happiest time of ail the year. The snow was melting and SIAVEIY DECLARES 'RELENTLESS WAR "What do you he cried. That means that the snow and ice will already the ground was bare in many Sijon otherwise GUI Mo- places: The very sight of Jimmy ther Nature wouldn't havo wakened Skunk hunting fur something to eat filled Peter with joy. As usual was fairly bursting Tvlth desire to spread tho news. He felt sure that every one who heard it would feel as glad as he did. So when on his way home to the dear Old Briar Patch he spied Danny Meadow Mouse he hurried over to pay his respects and tell him the news. "Wnat do you 'know, he cried, 'Jimmy Skunk is out and about! It certainly is good to see him again. 'vmm SALT for Insomnia him. He's the same old Jimmy, only he isn't. He has lost all his fat and he movers about so spryly that I wouldn't believe it to" be Jimmy if I didn't know it was. Never saw stich a change in a felow in my life. And Mrs. Skunk and their children arc him. It certainly is groat to seu tnem around again. Why, Danny Meadow Mouse, you don't look glad. Aren't you glad, Peter had sudden- ly noticed that instead of a glad look Danny's face wore a worried look. "No, jkn not replied Danuy shortiy Tn his funny squeaky voice. "Why should I be" bcL-ause it is good to see an old neighbor and friend about replied Peter. "He's no friend of mine, not at this season of the year, anyway." retorted Danny Meadow Mouse. "When I saw you coming I thought you were bring- ing good news. Instead -frou have brought about as bad news as I have heard for many a day. How big n, family has Jimmy "Why, there are Mrs. Skunk and seven fine bis nice a fam- ily as you'll in u long said Peter. "That makes nine." squeaked Dan- ny and looked more, worried than ever. "Jimmy and Mrs. Skunk would bavo been bud enough, but seven fully grown children niuc altogether: Just as if I haven't worries enough as it is without having.nine more added all at once! Excuse nie, Peter, I must go warn Nanny Meadow Mouge right away. I hate to add to her worries, but Yl have to. Nine Skunks! Nine hungry Skunks! Nine! What chance a poor little Meadow Mouse these days tu brintc up a Before Peter could-stop him Danny had darted away along one of .his private little paths through tho brown grass: Peter sat staring after him rather -stupidly. He Hud thought to j bring good news and apparently he had added to Danny's worries. He didn't understand it at all. (Copyright 1921, by T. W. Burgess) Tho nest story: "Danny Meadow Mouse Explains."

"For several months I suffered from a serious stomach disorder. I i had no appetite and couldn't eat I enough to keep up my strength.

"Tlio first bottle of Tanlac -didn't help me much, but I made up my mind to give it a fair trial. After Btarting on tlio second bottle I-began to feel bettor.

Co, Has Municipality Secretary Who Works Overtime to Jteul x Pest (By u Staff Reporter! STAVELY, Mar. good [work in combatting the grasshoppers hist year, tliu most effective work done by any community in thn pro- vinces. lauded by K. H. .Strickland, 01 i ho Lethbridye experimental sta- tion, in his this morning be- fore an audience that packed the lec- ture tar of the Interprovlnekil Weed Special. Stavuly is already preparing to light the- hoppers this yoar for iney iire determined to seo that their dis- trict is free from this pest. Mr. Strickland said that Stavely would likely see a great number ol hoppers this year. They were moving north. By next year or perhaps the year after the hoppers hero would be a thins of the past. We may never sea another outbreak In our lifetime, was the cheering announcement. Stavely is fortunate in having Mr. Skelborno as secretary of its rural municipality. Skelborue has declared relentless warfare on the hoppers. Last year he placed his district in the front lank in. the grasshopper war. I Stavely does it by community effort. The work is thorough, and Stavely reaped tens of thousands of dollars In consequence last year. The rural municipality levied a two cents an acre tax to defray the ex- I pense of the grasshopper This was enough to meet the expense and it was equally divided. This pol- icy will be followed again this year. j Already straw is being placed around j the fields. This Is a sort of trap for j the baby hoppers who have a Uablt of coming home to sleep at night. Hoppers are hatched in the grass and weeds around the fields and along the roadsides, and they return from the fields every night for two weeks to sleep in their old home. The idea is to set fire to the weeds and straw at I night. This Is an effective if not a I kind way of destroying the little fcl- lows on a wholesale scale. It was j recommended by Mr. Strickland. Better Livestock Essential O. McConkie, B.S.A.. gave" a good speech on the new agricultural era. He made a plea for better livestock. Mr. McConkie was for a time connect- ed with the British Food Board and while in that work in England learned that Canada must produce better beef and bacon if she is to be a successful competitor for the British trade. There was no country in the world that could produce better root crops than Alberta, yet how many farmers raised them? The speakers mane some pertinent remarks about noxious weeds here, some of them being as follows: Weed Hints A perennial sow thistle "plant may produce 2000 seeds each year for 50 years. Weeds crowd and shade the grain crop. "Wandering the Russian thistle, won't stay put. A big weed will pump a barrel of water from the soil in a season. Plow under no seeds bearing ripe seedri. Bum them. Weeds lessen the value of your farm. Every man his own weed inspector. Cattle will thrive on young sow thistles. Only the best, grain is good enough j to sow. The lowest priced is most costly. To kill sow" thistlt by suramerfal- lowing keep thy ground black until fall frosts. Thft Good RELIEF NIID IN OVER SASKATOON.
