Baby Darling and the Kevvpies
And We Have With
Us the Kewpies
Most children have already met tho
"Kcwplcs," those droll creations of Itose
O'Neill, Children nro now nfforded a
more Intimate acquaintance In "The Kcw
plo Kutouts," Just published by Stokes.
Miss O'Neill, tho nrtlst, explains her
book, which Is replete with charmingly
colored "Kewples," which can be cut from
paper and clothed:
'This tells the Kewples latest caper.
With Kowple dolls cut out of paper
And how a sad affair was mended
And Baby Darling's sorrow ended."
In thi5 book Miss O'Neill recites tho ad
ventures of various children with the
"Kewples." She advises:
"When parents lean more than thej ought
To harsh censorious -forms of thought.
To systematic growls 'and gi'umbllng,
'TIs best to do a little tumbling.'
They rind themselveB fur leas sarcastic
When their habits nre gymnastic."
Then we see the Kewples and parents
doing most amazing acrobatic stunts on
horizontal bars nnd Jumping.
The Kewples exist tor the purpose of
malting peoplo happy. They are never
Batlsfled unless trooping off to kidnap a
poor little girl nnd tnke-hereto ''the-country,
or reforming tho .scolding aunt, or
helping poor Mrs. McGraw to take care
of her children nnd doing tho washing.
Their continual broad grins and mis
chievous eyes are Irresistibly contagious.
Miss O'Neill concludes truthfully:
"Thanks to goodness, children bad
.Arc very seldom to bo had.
At least, 'tis sure thoro nren't many
In fact, we don't believe there's any."

We learn from the historical note In the

these tales reached England. There were

kind to poor children and mice. For tho
children he built a factory for making

Adventures of Wee

First she faces all the terrors of the
darkness, ghosts nnd wild beasts nnd
birds of prey and then comes hunger,
which Is worse than fear. One night she
sleeps In a cave with wolf-cuba, nnd
coddles up to them for warmth. She kills
a rattlesnake Just In lime, narrowly
