PAGE TWELVE THE CATALINA ISLAND g SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES It does no good to Just regret If your mistakes you coon forget. DANNY MEADOW MOUSE had learned this by hard experience. ~ow whenever he makes a mistake he wastes no time regretting that mistake, but neither does he forget It. He tucks it away in his memory so that he ,t~ever will do the same thing again, and then he puts his wits to Work to get him out of the trouble his mis- take has got him into. As he peeped out of the hole in the far bank of the Smiling Pool, where q ml Certainly Have Got Myself Into a Heap of Trouble This Time," Thought He. ~e had found safety, he wished with all his might that he had stayed at home. But he wasted little time that way. He hadn't stayed at home, so the thing to do was to try to find a way out of his present difficulties. His home was some distance away on the Green Meadows on the uther side of the Smiling Pool. On rho other hank he could see Reddy Fox. Down in the Smiling Pool he could see the Big Pickerel, who had so nearly caught him when he was swimming across. There also was Snapper the Snapping Turtle. To make ma~tters worse he caught a glimpse of Billy Mink swim- ning along closer to the opposite bank. A fa{iMeadow Mouse for dinner would tlckie any of these. Then to make matters worse he hap- pened to look up and there sailing round and round high overhead was Redtall the Hawk, and there is noth- ing In the world that Redtall likes bet- ter than Meadow Mouse for his meals. Danny sighed, but he took care that that sigh couldn't he heard more than a few inches away It was a very gentle sigh, a very gentle sigh indeed, but in it were expressed all Danny's feelings--fear, worry and vain regret. "I certainly have got myself inta a heap of trouble this time," thought ho. "I'm surrounded by enemies Yes, ~ir. :I'm simply surrounded by enemies, and, if I don't watch out there won't he any Danny Meadow Mouse. I had no busi- ness to come over here to the Smilin2 Pool, but here I am. 1 got myself into this trouble and now I've got to get myself out of it. Nobody else can or will. If a fellow didn't have to eat things would be easier. I could stay right here untll 1 could be sure of a safe trip home. But goodness knows when that time will come and I'm hun- gry this very minute." Then as once more he caught a glimpse of Billy Mink a dreadful thought came to him. Billy Mink might take it into his head to come over on that bank of the Smiling Pool and peep into all the holes there, a way he has of doing. "He would surely find me then," thought Danny, "and that would be the end of me. I don't dare go and I don't dare stay. Whatever shall I do?" ~). T. W. Burgess.---WNU Service.
