Jl I II I II I Ill - C BREWSTER HERALD Cheerio Chapters run for A. the Children Edited by DOROTHY EDMONDS PEGGY'S TREASURE HUNT There are six errors in the draw- Ing of this lighthouse and fisher- man. See if you can locate them all putting everything neatly, search- Ing everywhere for the possible aidden treasure that Uncle Ned seemed so sure they would find. After a while though, she began to get discouraged. She had almost cleaned the whole house and noth- Ing exciting had been found. "Keo, looking," said Uncle Ned. "When the pirates were most discouraged was when they usually found their richest treasures." Suddenly, in a back closet, under the back stairs, Peggy touched something In the floor that felt loose. "Uncle Ned, come quick, here's e secret cupboard." She pushed a little, and sure enough s board In the floor came loose, but Instead of there being s Peggy was one of four children who were all younger than herself. She was a great help to her moth- er but she did the housework more to help her mother than because she liked to do it. She was par- tlcularly fond of adventure. "Oh, dear," she sighed one day, "l wish somethlng would happen. Or I wish I could go on a treas- ure hunt." Her uncle was In the room, Un- cle Ned of whom all the children were so fond. "Why don't you?" sa/d he. '*Here you live In a big old house that must be Just full of hidden treasure." "Oh, no," said Peggy. "I've swept and dusted every few days and I know there is no hidden treasure here." "You bare to hunt for treasure, you know," said Uncle Ned. "And you have to be like the old time pirates, Just out looking for it to find It. Now let's see, there's the attic, and the cellar, and the clos- ets. Are you sure you've cleaned thoroughly In all those places?" "Well, there's some closets 1 guess I haven't cleaned so thorough- ly, Uncle Ned." "Fine, then we'll go on our treas- ure hunt' right away." This was certainly an exciting change from housework. Peggy worked diligently, cleaning every corner, looking under everything, [I00gh .... .... II By WALTER ts of Ne00v York ii i t i You can talk about game boxers and game ball players, but often I think about tim gamest sportsmen I know are old-timers in the theatrical profession. Through the depression, you might have seen them walking along the streets, coming out of em- ployment ol1%es, actint as waiters or at any other Job they could get, a lit- tle thinner, their clothes a little more W'orn fr0m brushing, but always calm and courteolm, and never a whine out of them. I know of one old actor who must be close to seventy. He never was really a star, but he played prom. lnent parts in roll)port of stars and made good money. During these days, he bought a little place down by the shore. Now he lives there, tie speaks of it as his country home; says be is staying there until he ac- cepts a part again. * $ S Actually, it is a small two-room shack, unpainted and forlorn, in one room Is an old four-post bed, an an- tique table, and a chair of good de- sign which needs repairs. On the walls are signed theatrical photo- graphs, old programs, a stage dag- ger. The table holds a book in soft leather binding, the last relic of a library. The back room has a sink, an oil stove, and s round iron stove fitted for coal, If there Is any, but which also can be made to burn drift. wood. There is one old china cup, saucer, and plate; a tin cup; a fry- Ing pan; a coffee-pot. There are two up-to-date appliances In evidence. One Is an electric light bulb, suspend- ed from the ceiling by an insulated wire; the other Is a telephone. e 15 t Except on the occasions wimn he c-ars In town, that telephone Is the old actor's chief link with the outside world, Its number Is in the book. If you call IL the owner will answer in his polished, courtly voice. He will explain that, from motives of economy, he has had to let "his man" go. Hearing that voice, you will vision the owner as speaking from some large and paneled room, with a deep rug on the polished foot and draperies at the windows. You will vision him so---if you don't know het- ter, Never s whimper, never a eom- plalnL But the chances are that some day a friend will call that hum- bar, and the telephone will ring and this.

In m0sf ,of the oRI. ing time leases tltot is a clause veltaino t'6wner's box." This clause, In +'e original leases and therefore hi,cling In any sublease, provides that a box shall be set aside hole under there, there was still another board with a tiny keyhole in It. "Let's see," said Uncle Ned. "Let's find an old bunch o keys." They found several of those and tried each one. Most of them seemed too large, but one tiny key was Just right. They unlocked the secret cupboard and Inside was a small box, but alas another key hole was In that and this key would not fit, Another one must be found. Mother had a bunch of keys In her room that fitted silver trunks and Jewelry boxes. That was the one to get. And much to Peggy's Joy one of the keys unlocked the box. Peggy could scarcely hold herself with excitement and when the lid of the box was lifted there rested a very old gold piece, and a very old letter. She picked up the letter to read it. 'o the person who finds this hidden treasure: Good luck l Keep this gold piece and find five others hidden In the house. A treasure is only something which one person finds who hunts longer and more thoroughly than some one else. Be thorough in all that you do, and many hidden treasures will be yours." "Uncle Ned, Uncle Ned," cried Peggy. 'here are treasures In this house after all. Oh, how exciting." And you may be sure Peggy started very soon in search of the others to be found. (. *95|.

Twentieth-cen- tury Californians pattern their homes after the houses of France, Spain or Great Britain, but In the days of California's post-Spanish glory an aristocrat who wished to build himself an attractive new es- tate frequently imported the very buildings from afar. Thus In 1850 Gen. Marlano Gua- dalupe ValleJo Imported a hous from New York and another from Switzerland. About a mile from Sonoma they stand today. The first was made to order In Switzerland. Dismantled, It was loaded piece by piece into a sailing vessel. From Europe It made the many weeks' Jonrney to Callfornla around the Horn. Carried by ox-drawn carts to the Intended site, the pieces were put together by Indians. Each piece. numbered, was carefully laid In Its proper place. No nails or screws were used In the building. It was ghled and bound together. The second house was construct- ed in New York, taken apart and packed by wagon over prairies and mountains.

IT I How It started T[ A "Jovial" Nature HERE are many of us who are In. .'lined to be sceptical of the science --pseudo or otherwise--known as as. trology. And yet, those amongst us who are the most hardened unbellev. ers, would have no hesitation at all In saying about a man "he tins a Jovial dlsposltion"thus unconsciously confirming the old Idea. that the stars and planets have au influence upon our nature and constitution. For tim word ."Jovial" In the phrase under consideration, comes to us from Jove, In turn derived from Jupiter, which planet was supposed to govern man's constitution to the extent of making him happy and cheerful--JusT as our word "lunatic" Is a throw-back to tim days when Too much contempla tion of tim moon (Luna) made a man insane. Science is dead--long live science So it has always been down through the centuries. And wblle astrology may have died. It Ires not quite heen buried.

Silver Foxes Tattooed to Help Identification Stuart, Neb.--Breeders of sliver foxes at the Stuart fur farms, north of here, have devised a way of keep. InS straight on the family trees of each fox. A black Ink pigment is tattooed with an electric needle Into each ear of the fox. This serves as a breeding record guide and also to identity the fox if It escapes from the pens. The Ink never fades or wears out. On one ear the letters "S S" are tat. tooed, and on the other a number and the year the fox was born are tat. tooed. To do the tattooing, the fox Is cap. tured, his mouth tied shut so he can. not nip the tattoo man, and the anl. real is stretched out on a flat topped table. 193.
