IA3 es Texas IT Something LittieOnes HOW BILLY FOX TRICKED MR. WOLF By CALEB B. WHITFORD. One frosty morning, just about sun- rise, old Billy Fox was trotting home after having been out all night, when he heard the hounds on his trail. "1 declare," said the fox, "I don't feel much like having a race with the hounds this morning, because 1 have been working all night, and had such a big late breakfast 1 don't believe 1 could keep very far ahead of them. This is what 1 get for staying out so late. 1 ought to have been at home an hour ago. But it won't do to be loafing around here. 1 must get buBy \ and fool those hounds Bome way." And the fox jumped up on an old stone wall and ran a little way on the stones, then he jumped away off to one side as far as he could leap out into a pasture where there was a flock of sheep. He ran as fast as he could to the sheep. Of course they ran away, but the fox overtook them, and, get- ting right in the middle of the flock, ran with them to the other...

Washington, May 20.—Defec- tive railroad equipment and tracks were responsible for 68 per cent of all derailments in the United States during July, August and September, 1912, and during those three months there were 985 more train acci- dents, including 901 more col- lisions and derailments, than there were during the same months of 1911.

The queBtlon of divorce could be •olved If tho more Important ques- tion of marriage were properly settled first. There would be as few divorces In the United States as there are In Europe If the same safeguards which protect marriage In the older coun- tries were thrown around marriage In this country. A uniform marriage law Is more needed In the United States than a uniform divorce law. It la the essential preliminary to any effective handling of the divorce prob- lem. Divorces In this country would be reduced In number by two-thirds if, as 1s the law In England, no mar- riage could take place until the banns have been published for throe weeks —If no girl could marry without her parent*' consent until she was twen- ty-one years old.

The more fault a man finds the more expert he becomes at it. To believe a thing is possible, is the surest way to make it so, says one of our philosophers.

Let's all pull together and make Chil- licothe the ideal town. About the only man in this country who can get what he wants without advertising for it is the one who goes out looking for trouble.
