The Hodkinses are keeping geese this year. The Podkinses are not keeping geese--not if they know it. Now the lIodkins geese acquired the habit, when weary of disporting themselves in the "big i "" d tch, of resorting to the front lawn )f the Podkins demesne. These invasions the Podkinses resented. Their remonstrances failed of effect. A condition of strained relations ensued. Mrs. Podkins, kindly old soul, said she "didn't want ter git th' nen- folks a-scrappin' and a-mixin' things up over a passel o' geese." So she organizet a board of strategy, consisting of herself, her daughter "Sis" and her boy "Joe." The result of their deliberations and certain preparations, where figured needle and thread, some grains of corn and some bits of cardboard, became evident next morning. The Hodkins geese appeared as usual, but returned home quickly, squawking so nois- ily as to bring the lIodkinses in a body to the front door. What they saw paralyzed nem. escending from each fowl s bill was a hit of thread, the inner end anchored to a grain of corn in the bird's interior de- partment, while to the other end -of the string was attached a card bearing this in- scirption: "Plese Kepe Yur Durn Ole Goos- es Home."
