"But every night now for a week so soon as I place the stars---I mean the candles---all lighted In their places along come those bad little Rainclouds and put them out. "I know that all the earth children think I have forgotten to do my work and perhaps they will look for the lights to be placed in the sky again. Oh, dear, I am unhappy." "Well, well, dry your eyes, Twi- light," said Mr. Moon-man. "We will see what can be dose about those mischievous Rainclouds. I am rather tired of having them in my way, too. Now you run along home and get your candles lighted, and if I am not very much mistaken you will be able soon to place the candles in the sky, though it is too late for the earth children to watch you at your work." Mr. Moon-man went sailing along the sky and every Raincloud that he met went scudding away. For they knew Mr. Moon-man would call on old Wind Witch for help and she would come with her broom and sweep them all away if they did not run; and she wasn't very careful where she swept them, once she started clearing the sky. So off they ran to their home on the top of a high mountain and went to sleep, leaving the sky clear for Mr." Moon-man to shine In. Pretty soon along came Miss Twi- light, though of course she had changed her gown now, and no one could see her as she took the can- dles from the basket on her arm and tucked them in the deep blue sky until every star, as we call the candles down here on earth, was twinkling In its place.

MILDRED MARSHALL FACTS about #cu" name; it's istor; meaning; whence it as derie; sini- cance; your luck9 da9 and hch.:-' BETTINA ]IETTINA, curiousl agh, has no .11. etymological anection with Bet- ty, as is ...,ty supposed. It is an Italiv" emlnlne name which was de.  ed from the old verb be, to bless, and later, with the word benedlco (to speak Well). Beata and Bettrys were the early forms of fhe name and in Diocletian's persecutions, the Christian maiden who drew the bodies of her martyred brothers from the Tiber and buried them, afterward sharing their fate, was called Beatrix. Her relics were enshrined at Rome and her fame spread roadcast. Dante further con- trlbuted to the prevalence of the "blessed" names by making the love of his youth, Beatrice Portinari, the theme of his "Vlta Nuova" and his guide through Paradise. Bona, another form of the name, was used by the daughters of the Counts of Savoy, and in the House the Invitation was formal, and would then run like this: "Mr. John Smith regrets exceedingly that, owing to a not serious Injury In an automobile accident, he will be unable to be pre ent at dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Paul Jones." But usually it is more con- venient even if the Invitat!on came and was first accepted'in the third person to have the telegram written In the first person, as: "I regret ex- ceedlngly that. owing to an automo- bile accident, in which I received slight injuries, I will be unable to have the honor of dining with you this evening.'" For such a telegram one should not begrudge a few words over the ten allowed in order to make the wording polite. In making a last, minute regret, no matter how formal the Invitation, full explanation should be given as to the occasion for not being present. To accept an invitation and then not to be present without sending a speclat note of regret Is, of course, unpardonable. (( by Wheeler Syndicate. Inc.) Clean Creature the Snake.
