FIERY HEARTS a Hll MY CONCEITED ROOSTER By .Mary Gibson. The otber (lay I happened to t~e out in the yard when a neighbor's rooster flew over the fence and alighted in my chicken yard, and of course a battle between the feathered-leg old [ord of the harem and the intruder began. \Vith bills held close to the ground, and with neck rafts standing the wrong way, they (lanced around each other, while sparring for an opening. Then they closed, and the fight was On, They had hardly made a dozen passes before two blue jays settled on the fence just above the combatants, and with shrieks of approval and chuckles of delight proceeded to re- feree the bout. This old rooster of mine never for- gets the role he is expected to play. He is always ready to show off before the hens, or anyone else who happens to be around. His swagger, the way he throws back his shouhters and puffs out his chest, and his conceited air when speaking to the hens--all ad- ertise his self-esteem. He takes credit for everything that happens in the yard, and when one of the hens lays an egg, he takes the words out of her mouth, and in hoarse JUST A MUTT By Edward Van Aelstyn, Junior English He is a little rag terrier pup, white, with a' brown spot~ on either flank; two brown ears, * and an irregular brown splotch at the base of his tail. Short; fat, squat, and bow-legged, he is surely not the most graceful or b6atitiful fiound that ever made rags of a perfectly new pair of slippers. His awkwardness makes h,im funny. He is just about the cutest, little wretch that ever tracked newly-laid cement. Ahvays into mischief, he is the cause of more annoyance than an approved edition of dog meat ought to be. No- thing is safe with him around. His sharp little teeth lnake quick work of anything earelessb' left where he can reach it. Still, with all his mischiev- ousness, he is a wonderful pet, for most of his pranks are comical. It is \cry amusing to sue him try to run. His legs are so short it is hard- ly possible fo, him to make any head- ~vay. He has the poorest excuse for a bark that ever howled for a bone. High pitched, shrill, thin, ~nd still liable to "break," his bark scares no one hut himself. Eat?
