I call my mother "Mudgic."
My father is just "Daddy."
And nursies always "Kudgie,"
But Katie is her name.
And Theodore is "Teddy."
And every little laddie.
When called for short, is ready
To answer just the same.
And though my name is "Edward,"
They do not use it often:
'Less I cry at going bedward
Or show my spunky B"'M.
But when I'm nice and sunny.
Their faces quickly soften;
Then mother calls me "Honey,"
And daddy calls me "Bill."

BEFORE THE SANDMAN COMES
NCE upon a time some fairies remarkable part is that you don't
"lived in a birr cornfield how
does anybody know they lived
there you ask? Wait and seel
They started living there in the
ummer when the corn stalks were
fresh and green.
Then dainty little daisies and
'lovers strayed among the cornstalks
"hugs and beetles crawled over the
corn roots, and many interesting
things happened every day.
Altogether, the fairies considered
'hat, next to the forest, a cornfield
was the very nicest place to live, and
they decided to live there forever.
Then came the frosts, the cold
inds and the snows anj tne poor lit
tle fairies, taken unawares, hardly
knew what to do they weren't used
to cold and snow and ice and they
didn't like them a bit.
"Let's ask the beetle," said one

So they hunted up their friend the

"We lived in the Southland." an
swered one fairy, "and we have never
even heard of winter."
"Well, welll" pondered the beetle,
"I have never been out of this corn
field, yet I know all about winter."
"Then maybe you can tell us if it is
always cold like this?" asked a fairy.
"Yes, it is," answered the beetle.
"It's cold and windy and stormy and
snowy and oh! everything," he add
"That doesn't sound very pleas
ant," said a fairy.
"Oh, it's not so bad," comforted the
beetle, "not so bad you find a snug
comfortable home. I go down into
the ground down to where it is nice
and warm and I don't mind the cold
winter a bit."
"I wish we had a warm home," said
"Wishing don't get one. Why don't
you hunt5" asked the beetle.
"We will!" said the fairies.
They set to work and found a snug
little home under the stiff corn roots
and there they hid all winter.
And on warm days when the winds
from the Southland blow, they slip
out from their shelter and frolic and
sing among the big corn stalks.
Some day when you pass a corn
field and a breeze is blowing, stop and
listen to the rustle rustle swishl
That's the sound of the fairies talk
