Mr. Dog is always ready la to listen if you approach him the. right way." Mr. Fox sat down again and was st In thought for some time. Then tan out of the Imuse straight rd tile farm on the ldll. and when came to a rock which was on the ot]Mer side of the fence from Mr. Dog's lkmme he jumped on It nnd sat down. Pretty soon along came Mr. Dog Jumlaing about and playing in the snow. *Mr. Dog Jumping About and Playing in the Snow." Lr. Fox Jumped down and by the time .

Fox was not JUst Jumped at Mr, if to tug him and then ran the woods and Mr. Dog after When they reached the woods Mr. ' turned around and began to dance out again and Mr. Dog forgot his to his master and began to play as Mr. Fox intended he should. By and by Mr. Fox sat down. "It ' ag to be a long winter, I think, I believe I shall rry Mr. Bear's ita" he said, "and go to sleep and -m wake up till springtime.

I fancy he ls not so considerate of you in the winter thne as he might be. "It Is a simms to make you sleep out, in that house, where it must be very cold, when he could Just as well let you sleep in the kitchen behind the stove, where it is nice and warm." This was a very anpleasant subject to Mr. Dog, for he had often thought the same thing about the kitchen stove and trled many times to hide and get a chance to sleep there. But every time his master had fonnd him and made.him go out in his house to spend the night. "Where could I find a nice place to sleep all winterY' lie inquired. "I guess master will wish he had let me sleep in the kitchen when he finds I am gone." Mr. Fox began to smile. He was thinking how easily it would be for him to get poultry all winter with Mr. Dog stored away somewhere asleep until spring. "You come with me. Mr. Dog," he said. "I will show ynu a place where you will be comfortable, for I do think your master Is most unfair to you and I should like to help you." Mr. Fox had noticed a place among some i;ocks that very morning where he was certain there must be a cave- like place, and here he led Mr. Dog. "There," he said when they reached lt, "you crawl in there. You will find dried leaves and other soft things and when the next snow comes it will cover these rocks and no one will ever find you. and when you go home In the spring I guess Mr. Man will be pretty glad to see you." Then off ran Mr. Fox for his home. But what he did not know was that he had taken Mr. Dog to the very place Mr. Porcupine had chosen for his winter bedroom and u'laen Mr. Dog crawled into the cave he came up against Mr. Porcupine's quills For he always sleeps with his hack to the opening of his cave.

Mr. Fox's ear was nipped but he managed to get away. "Now, how could he treat me in such an unkind manner?" mused Mr. Fox when he reached home. "Even if he did not sleep all winter he ought to re- monber tlmt I acted In a very friendly way toward him. But Mr. Dog of course thought Mr. Fox had taken him to the cave know- ing Just what. was to happen to him and he slept with one eye open and both ears listening all winter, and Mr. Fox did have a very hard winter, very hard indeed. I (. 1953, by McCluro Newspaper Syndicate,) GOLD BEADS AND SORE THROATS STttING of gold beads when worn around the neck is regarded in this country and Canada sometimes as a cure for sore throaL quinsy and scrofula but generally as a preventive of rhose diseases. Once universal, this superstition now flourishes mostly in the ruraV districts where it shows no sign of losing its ground. Apparently the source of the superstition is to be found in the cult of Minerva, the Ro- man"goddess identified with the Greek Athena Now Athena-Minerva wore, amon her other "ornaments, the Aegis of her father Zeus, or Jupiter. Anclen , statues of Athena-Minerva represem her as wearing the Aegt in dlfferen forms and ways. In several of th statuds which have been dug up---no- tably one in the gallery of the Louvre-- the Aegis is notidng more than a broml collar or necklace to whtcb Is attache(; by way of a pendant the Gorgon's head NO WONDER!

The Greeks, we know, painted their statues and sometim'es !gded parts of them. The celebrated ]statue of Athena by Phidtas in the : Parthenon was of ivory and gold aud the Aegis on it would naturally be ot the metal. Ifthe maidens who waited upon the goddess In the Parthenon ap- proaciled the statue wearing a gold ornament that ornament became sa- (,red. It would have been natural for ther to have adorned themselves in the manner of their goddess-and their golden necklaces would have become thereby sanctified.
