THE FOX'S STORY.

_ TELL you a story, little chap?
Well, what do you suppose an old



3 â„¢ fellow like grandfather can tell to
please you and Bushy? It’s something that happened when
I was.young, you want? Well, let me think. So many
things happened theu, for grandfather was agay young fox.
‘I guess I'll tell you first about the great fox hunt from the .
castle. The castle stood high upon a hill, and one fine
day, the lords and ladies met there, and mounted upon
their beautiful horses, started through the forest, the
henge dashing back of them, in front of them, and all

- around them, for: the hounds go along to scent the fox,
you know. I was young then, and the sight was new to
me, and very dazzling, and although I had heard ae the
danger, I liked the excitement and noise. It was a beau-
tiful sight, for the men wore bright scarlet jackets, which

the dark dresses of the ladies made lookstill brighter. My



* i
curiosity came near putting an end to me that day, for

watched and waited almost too long, and only the greatest



_ cunning on my part made the hounds lose the scent, and
then the fun was spoiled.

Tell you some more? I'll give you some advice this



time. Bewareof traps. Many a handsome, brave young
fox has been too curious, and has poked his paw intosome
queer looking object which he has discovered, only to have
his little paw caught and has so lost his freedom forever. —
There is something else you must remember, and it is
to have lots of patience. One time when your father and
uncle were little chaps, I took them out to get our Thanks-
giving dinner. I had seen
some fat, young turkeys
roosting ina pear tree, and I
wanted one of them very
badly. The moon rose early
that night, and when we
reached the tree, there sat
five as pretty birds as Iever

saw but Ihad not been sharp



in measuring my distance,
and they were far beyond our reach. So there we stood,
and waited and waited, not knowing what to do. “Let’s
go home,” said. your father. “Not without our dinner,”

said I. “But we can’t reach them,” he replied. “Boys,” I



said, “we can wait,” and we did wait. We hid back of the
barn until moraine dawned, and when the turkeys flew
down to hunt for some breakfast, one of them was doubt-
less very anaes surprised to find himself stowed away in
a bag preparatory to taking a ride on

my shoulder. It was patience that won





the turkey, boys, for had we grown



ul tired and gone away, wecertainly would
’ vi have lost our fine dinner.

: ’ The farmer is no friend of ours,
| you know, and the farmer who lived at
Hillside was very hard on us. He and his boys were al-
ways setting traps to capture some venturesome fellow.
One day during harvest time, when the fields were bright
with golden grain, I started off in search of something to
eat. I crept along cautiously until I espied a duck so
round and fat that it made my mouth water to look at her. °
I tried to plan some way to capture her. This seemed al-
most impossible for the farmer was close by, and right by
his side, 1 could see the shining barrel of his trusty old

gun, and I knew, if he caught sight of me, he would cer-



tainly kill me. But the temptation was so great that 1
ventured closer and closer, grabbed the duck, stuffed her
into the bag, and scampered away across the fields as
fastas I couldrun. It isnot wise to be so daring, caution is
always better and it was only luck that saved me that time.

Lwant you to be brave, boys, but I want you to be
careful, as well. Don’t

creep too far |\

the tree,



watchful as =~ any fox l
ever knew, and I have known a great many. And now I
think you have had stories enough for one day, and I
want my afternoon nap. | picked up a delicious fat goose
this morning, and if you are good boys you can haveit all
before you creep into your piney beds, and fall asleep to
dream sweet dreams of the jolly times that arein store for

all happy young foxes, and here we see them fast asleep

in their beds, the bones of the goose scattered all around.

THE FOX HUNT.

LittLE Topsy TROTTER




| came home from school on
im Friday night, threw his books
fe on the very top shelf of the
cupboard and exclaimed, “ You canrest there my friend, for
two whole days. I have seen all 1 want of you for this
week, and haven't I pegged at you these last five days
harder than I ever did in all my life?”

To be sure Toby had a good reason for his hard work,
which of course you would like to know. While Toby
was finishing his bowl of porridge and milk at breakfast
Monday morning, his big brother Bill came into the room,
“Toby,” said he, “if you'll come home on Friday night,
and tell me you are head of your class, I’ll take you for a
fox hunt on Saturday.”

To say Toby was pleased does not begin to express

his feelings, he was wild with delight. “T’'ll do it Billy,”



- gaid he, “you see if I don’t. I'll work




at day and night before I will miss
ft that fox hunt.” Bill chuckled to
himself to see little Toby so wrapt up in his studies. sa
like the youngster’s determination at any rate,” thought
he. Toby’s hard work gained the day, and he could hard-
ly wait until Bill came home to tell him he had kept his |
part of the contract. Bill was ready to do his part also,
so they started from home the next morning, followed by
old Bowser, the dog. Bill carried a gun. “Toby would
have liked to carry one also, but Bill thought he was bet-
ter off without it. The woods where the fox lived was some
little distance from the boy’s home, and Toby ran along
by Billy’s side chattering as merrily as a magpie. A neigh-
bor’s dog seeing old Bowser joined the party, but he soon -

grew tired and left them. If Bowser had SA



grown old he had not forgotten his early
training as a hunter, and he went straight

to work to discover the whereabouts of Mr. *



satisfied and Billy who had watched him followed care-
fully. It was just outside the woods that Bowser came
upon the fox. The fox saw the dog at about the same

time the dog saw him. With one great leap Mr. Fox

bounded over the fence, Bowser after



him. Onthey flew leav-

ing Bill and poor little

Toby far behind them.

Bowser did his best,
and just as he thought
the ie was his, the sly g ZZ
old fellow gave one swift
turn, darted into a deep hole in the
ground and left poor old Bowser

looking the picture of sorrowful de-



feat. The fox was lost, but Toby

still thought he had never known |
such sport in his life, and he coaxed
his brother to take him again the next week. Bill said
that just as long as Toby would stand at the head of his

class, he would take him every Saturday.



THE RIDE IN THE BALLOON.

Fourtu of July dawned bright and smiling




upon the little village of Browmew. Every-
where the flags were flying in honor of the glad
day, and long streamers of red, white and blue
-y bunting floated gaily to the breeze. The young
people roused from their slumbers by the bang-
ing of the cannon, hurried into the streets to
celebrate this glorious day. The youths had
donned their best suits, and all the happy
young girls had bedecked themselves in the
most charming style. Miss Kitty
Stripe, the belle of the village
won the admiration of all, for
where could one find a sweeter

creature than she? Her soft |

pretty ears were tied with the loveliest [|



pink ribbon, and the waving plume in her }



hat exactly matched the ribbon in color. Quite proud
Foxy Terry felt as fie walked by her side that fine morn-
ing. |

Fire-works blazed all day. It is true that Spitzy
White burnt all the hair off his pretty little face, and little
Mattie Gray had her ear shot off by a pistol, but they did



not mind such little accidents, and all agreed that the
fire-works were quite a success.

| The great event of the day, however, was to be the

balloon ascension. Never had such an event been heard

_ of in Browmew. All the folks turned out to see it. Old



Tortoise Shell came, although he was as






blind as a bat, for he declared that it
made him feel young again to hear
the cheering. Foxy Terry

and Kitty Stripe had
agreed to take
the ride.

four o'clock the balloon was brought out, and ere long all
was in tend mess and they had stepped into the basket
and were rising from the earth. Cheer after cheer went
up as they left the ground. Up, up they sailed. Over
roofs and steeples they rose, until it seemed to the crowd
below that they would never stop. They rose so eh,
that the ropes got tangled on the horn of the moon, which
they had not been able to avoid, since they could not see
it on account of the bright sunshine. Poor Pussy was —
greatly terrified, but brave Foxy bids her ie patient, and
he will set matters right. He soon manages to get the
balloon free, and slowly they begin to descend. The ride
isa short one, but it satisfies Miss Kitty, and she is glad to
come down: When they necch the ground, they are greet-
- ed with outstretched arms and praised for their bravery.
So the day ends amid general rejoicing, and at a late hour
all the sleepy young folks coal into bed to dream of the
ener of the day, and to look forward with pleasureto the
next year, when they should be able to have another good

time together on the green.



LESSONS FOR YOUNG FOXES.

Mrs. Rusy Busu







was really a very hand-
some young fox—the
handsomest in the whole
neighborhood, so it was

said, and they said too



7 | how good and gentle she
was, which was lots better than being called beautiful,
for kindness goes a great deal farther than goog looks:

She and her husband and her two little ones lived in
the “Tall Tree” forest as happy and loving a family as
the sun ever shone upon. The two little foxes Vic and
Vim played together all day. They had the finest games
of hide and go seck, the great holes in the trunk of the old
oak tree making the jolliest kind of hiding places. They

" pulled the tiny flowers that grew in the woods and made

wreaths and bouquets to carry home to Mother Bush.



Life was just one long play day to them. Ruby Bush
was a good little mother and she wanted to see her boys
well brought up, so the time came when she thought it
best to give them a lesson in hunting.

The moon was new, but the night was clear and the
qstars twinkled
brightly. Vic had
his turn first and
he and his mother
started off to the
nearest —_ poultry
yard,each cartying
a long white bag.
- The turkeys were

roosting on the



top of a rail fence
not dreaming of any danger, and Mother Fox and Vic
had little trouble to fill their bags. Vic was much pleased
Sen his success and thought it almost as much fun as
playing with Vim. |

Father Bush had seen a trap in the forest and had

wr es



told his good wife about it. “Now” thought sie “is the
time to teach my boys of the danger of traps.” So when
the boys started off to play, as usual, she called them back,
telling them she wanted them to go with her as she had
something to show them. The trap was near their home,
and the boys gazed in wonder at this strange object, and
listened with interest to the tales their mother told of its _
great dangers. A delicious piece of meat had been used for
bait and Vic and Vim and Mother Bushroe wished they
might have it. To wish meant to try with Mother Bush;
so she got a long
‘stick and telling
- her boysgto keep
away, carefully
pried open’ the
trap and drew out

the . treasure.

they had eating it?s

and wishing they .



| could findanother!

Whata fine time.

THE FOX'S STORY.

_ TELL you a story, little chap?
Well, what do you suppose an old



3 â„¢ fellow like grandfather can tell to
please you and Bushy? It’s something that happened when
I was.young, you want? Well, let me think. So many
things happened theu, for grandfather was agay young fox.
‘I guess I'll tell you first about the great fox hunt from the .
castle. The castle stood high upon a hill, and one fine
day, the lords and ladies met there, and mounted upon
their beautiful horses, started through the forest, the
henge dashing back of them, in front of them, and all

- around them, for: the hounds go along to scent the fox,
you know. I was young then, and the sight was new to
me, and very dazzling, and although I had heard ae the
danger, I liked the excitement and noise. It was a beau-
tiful sight, for the men wore bright scarlet jackets, which

the dark dresses of the ladies made lookstill brighter. My
* i
curiosity came near putting an end to me that day, for

watched and waited almost too long, and only the greatest



_ cunning on my part made the hounds lose the scent, and
then the fun was spoiled.

Tell you some more? I'll give you some advice this
time. Bewareof traps. Many a handsome, brave young
fox has been too curious, and has poked his paw intosome
queer looking object which he has discovered, only to have
his little paw caught and has so lost his freedom forever. —
There is something else you must remember, and it is
to have lots of patience. One time when your father and
uncle were little chaps, I took them out to get our Thanks-
giving dinner. I had seen
some fat, young turkeys
roosting ina pear tree, and I
wanted one of them very
badly. The moon rose early
that night, and when we
reached the tree, there sat
five as pretty birds as Iever

saw but Ihad not been sharp



in measuring my distance,
and they were far beyond our reach. So there we stood,
and waited and waited, not knowing what to do. “Let’s
go home,” said. your father. “Not without our dinner,”

said I. “But we can’t reach them,” he replied. “Boys,” I
said, “we can wait,” and we did wait. We hid back of the
barn until moraine dawned, and when the turkeys flew
down to hunt for some breakfast, one of them was doubt-
less very anaes surprised to find himself stowed away in
a bag preparatory to taking a ride on

my shoulder. It was patience that won





the turkey, boys, for had we grown



ul tired and gone away, wecertainly would
’ vi have lost our fine dinner.

: ’ The farmer is no friend of ours,
| you know, and the farmer who lived at
Hillside was very hard on us. He and his boys were al-
ways setting traps to capture some venturesome fellow.
One day during harvest time, when the fields were bright
with golden grain, I started off in search of something to
eat. I crept along cautiously until I espied a duck so
round and fat that it made my mouth water to look at her. °
I tried to plan some way to capture her. This seemed al-
most impossible for the farmer was close by, and right by
his side, 1 could see the shining barrel of his trusty old

gun, and I knew, if he caught sight of me, he would cer-
tainly kill me. But the temptation was so great that 1
ventured closer and closer, grabbed the duck, stuffed her
into the bag, and scampered away across the fields as
fastas I couldrun. It isnot wise to be so daring, caution is
always better and it was only luck that saved me that time.

Lwant you to be brave, boys, but I want you to be
careful, as well. Don’t

creep too far |\

the tree,



watchful as =~ any fox l
ever knew, and I have known a great many. And now I
think you have had stories enough for one day, and I
want my afternoon nap. | picked up a delicious fat goose
this morning, and if you are good boys you can haveit all
before you creep into your piney beds, and fall asleep to
dream sweet dreams of the jolly times that arein store for

all happy young foxes, and here we see them fast asleep

in their beds, the bones of the goose scattered all around.

¢
THE FOX HUNT.

LittLE Topsy TROTTER




| came home from school on
im Friday night, threw his books
fe on the very top shelf of the
cupboard and exclaimed, “ You canrest there my friend, for
two whole days. I have seen all 1 want of you for this
week, and haven't I pegged at you these last five days
harder than I ever did in all my life?”

To be sure Toby had a good reason for his hard work,
which of course you would like to know. While Toby
was finishing his bowl of porridge and milk at breakfast
Monday morning, his big brother Bill came into the room,
“Toby,” said he, “if you'll come home on Friday night,
and tell me you are head of your class, I’ll take you for a
fox hunt on Saturday.”

To say Toby was pleased does not begin to express

his feelings, he was wild with delight. “T’'ll do it Billy,”
- gaid he, “you see if I don’t. I'll work




at day and night before I will miss
ft that fox hunt.” Bill chuckled to
himself to see little Toby so wrapt up in his studies. sa
like the youngster’s determination at any rate,” thought
he. Toby’s hard work gained the day, and he could hard-
ly wait until Bill came home to tell him he had kept his |
part of the contract. Bill was ready to do his part also,
so they started from home the next morning, followed by
old Bowser, the dog. Bill carried a gun. “Toby would
have liked to carry one also, but Bill thought he was bet-
ter off without it. The woods where the fox lived was some
little distance from the boy’s home, and Toby ran along
by Billy’s side chattering as merrily as a magpie. A neigh-
bor’s dog seeing old Bowser joined the party, but he soon -

grew tired and left them. If Bowser had SA



grown old he had not forgotten his early
training as a hunter, and he went straight

to work to discover the whereabouts of Mr. *
satisfied and Billy who had watched him followed care-
fully. It was just outside the woods that Bowser came
upon the fox. The fox saw the dog at about the same

time the dog saw him. With one great leap Mr. Fox

bounded over the fence, Bowser after



him. Onthey flew leav-

ing Bill and poor little

Toby far behind them.

Bowser did his best,
and just as he thought
the ie was his, the sly g ZZ
old fellow gave one swift
turn, darted into a deep hole in the
ground and left poor old Bowser

looking the picture of sorrowful de-



feat. The fox was lost, but Toby

still thought he had never known |
such sport in his life, and he coaxed
his brother to take him again the next week. Bill said
that just as long as Toby would stand at the head of his

class, he would take him every Saturday.
THE RIDE IN THE BALLOON.

Fourtu of July dawned bright and smiling




upon the little village of Browmew. Every-
where the flags were flying in honor of the glad
day, and long streamers of red, white and blue
-y bunting floated gaily to the breeze. The young
people roused from their slumbers by the bang-
ing of the cannon, hurried into the streets to
celebrate this glorious day. The youths had
donned their best suits, and all the happy
young girls had bedecked themselves in the
most charming style. Miss Kitty
Stripe, the belle of the village
won the admiration of all, for
where could one find a sweeter

creature than she? Her soft |

pretty ears were tied with the loveliest [|



pink ribbon, and the waving plume in her }
hat exactly matched the ribbon in color. Quite proud
Foxy Terry felt as fie walked by her side that fine morn-
ing. |

Fire-works blazed all day. It is true that Spitzy
White burnt all the hair off his pretty little face, and little
Mattie Gray had her ear shot off by a pistol, but they did



not mind such little accidents, and all agreed that the
fire-works were quite a success.

| The great event of the day, however, was to be the

balloon ascension. Never had such an event been heard

_ of in Browmew. All the folks turned out to see it. Old
Tortoise Shell came, although he was as






blind as a bat, for he declared that it
made him feel young again to hear
the cheering. Foxy Terry

and Kitty Stripe had
agreed to take
the ride.

four o'clock the balloon was brought out, and ere long all
was in tend mess and they had stepped into the basket
and were rising from the earth. Cheer after cheer went
up as they left the ground. Up, up they sailed. Over
roofs and steeples they rose, until it seemed to the crowd
below that they would never stop. They rose so eh,
that the ropes got tangled on the horn of the moon, which
they had not been able to avoid, since they could not see
it on account of the bright sunshine. Poor Pussy was —
greatly terrified, but brave Foxy bids her ie patient, and
he will set matters right. He soon manages to get the
balloon free, and slowly they begin to descend. The ride
isa short one, but it satisfies Miss Kitty, and she is glad to
come down: When they necch the ground, they are greet-
- ed with outstretched arms and praised for their bravery.
So the day ends amid general rejoicing, and at a late hour
all the sleepy young folks coal into bed to dream of the
ener of the day, and to look forward with pleasureto the
next year, when they should be able to have another good

time together on the green.
LESSONS FOR YOUNG FOXES.

Mrs. Rusy Busu







was really a very hand-
some young fox—the
handsomest in the whole
neighborhood, so it was

said, and they said too



7 | how good and gentle she
was, which was lots better than being called beautiful,
for kindness goes a great deal farther than goog looks:

She and her husband and her two little ones lived in
the “Tall Tree” forest as happy and loving a family as
the sun ever shone upon. The two little foxes Vic and
Vim played together all day. They had the finest games
of hide and go seck, the great holes in the trunk of the old
oak tree making the jolliest kind of hiding places. They

" pulled the tiny flowers that grew in the woods and made

wreaths and bouquets to carry home to Mother Bush.
Life was just one long play day to them. Ruby Bush
was a good little mother and she wanted to see her boys
well brought up, so the time came when she thought it
best to give them a lesson in hunting.

The moon was new, but the night was clear and the
qstars twinkled
brightly. Vic had
his turn first and
he and his mother
started off to the
nearest —_ poultry
yard,each cartying
a long white bag.
- The turkeys were

roosting on the



top of a rail fence
not dreaming of any danger, and Mother Fox and Vic
had little trouble to fill their bags. Vic was much pleased
Sen his success and thought it almost as much fun as
playing with Vim. |

Father Bush had seen a trap in the forest and had

wr es
told his good wife about it. “Now” thought sie “is the
time to teach my boys of the danger of traps.” So when
the boys started off to play, as usual, she called them back,
telling them she wanted them to go with her as she had
something to show them. The trap was near their home,
and the boys gazed in wonder at this strange object, and
listened with interest to the tales their mother told of its _
great dangers. A delicious piece of meat had been used for
bait and Vic and Vim and Mother Bushroe wished they
might have it. To wish meant to try with Mother Bush;
so she got a long
‘stick and telling
- her boysgto keep
away, carefully
pried open’ the
trap and drew out

the . treasure.

they had eating it?s

and wishing they .



| could findanother!

Whata fine time.
