WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT A FOX?
Dear Children One of our members, Jack Burgess, of Cedar avenue,
wishes me to talk about a fox, and as I have not even a speaking: acquaint
ance with a live fox, I must needs go to my books about animals and learn
of this wonderful and crafty creature.
You have all heard of tho word "foxy," and it reminds us of the other
animals which serve us, by means of comparison. For instance, wo say
that some ono is as stubborn as a mule, or wise as an owl, or slippery as
The fox is hunted by a pack of dogs followed by hunters, and many
instances are recorded where the fox has led his pursuers a lively chase
nnd then suddenly disappeared. It is related that a hunting party invariably
lost a fox at a certain point and wero never able to locate him after he
disappeared, even by the scent of the dogs. Finally, ono of tho party hid
himself and noticed that the "foxy" animal would wait until the dogs were
running at full speed and then suddenly lie down and the Whole pack would
go over him and never see where he was.
Still another case is given by Wood of where a fox led those who were
chasing him to tho top of a high bluff and then suddenly disappeared. It
Wns plain enough, for the crafty fellow simply let himself down by his
claws until he landed on a small shelf under the edgo of tho cliff and then
disappeared into a hole mi the side of the hill.
We hope this helps our young members and if thero is any other animal
you would like to henr about, just write in. FARMER SMITH,
Children's Editor, Evening Ledger.

pursued nnd overtaken them.
At tho Intelligence my heart sprang
to my throat, for I was Buro that tho
two were of thoso who escaped In tho
dark grotto with Hoojn the Sly One,
and that Dlan must bo tho woman.
Qhak thought bo, too, as did Perry.
"Is thero naught that we may do to

"Naught," ho replied.
Along the crowded avenue we marched,
the guards showing unusual cruelty to
ward us, as though we, too, hnd been
Implicated In tho murder of their fellow.
Tho occasion was to serve as an object
lesson to nil other slaves of the danger
and futility of attempted escape, and
tho fatal consequences of taking tho life
of a superior being; nnd so I Imagine
tho Sagoths felt amply Justified In mak
ing tho entlro proceeding ns uncomfort
able and painful to us ns possible.
They Jabbed us with their Bpenrs, nnd
struck nt us with their hatchets at the
least provocation, and at no provocation
nt all. It was a most uncomfortable
half hour that wo spent beforo wo were
linaiiy herded through a low entrance
Into a huge building, tho centre of which
wns given up to a large arena. Benches
surrounded this opon spneo upon three
sides, nnd along tho fourth were heaped
hugo boulders which rose In receding
tiers toward tho roof.
At first I couldn't make out tho pur
pose of this mighty pllo of rock, unless
It wero Intended ns a rough nnd pic
turesque background for tho scenes which
were enacted In tho arena before It; but
presently, nftcr tho wooden benches hnd
been pretty well filled by slaves 'and
Sagoths, I discovered tho purposo of tho
boulders; for then tho Mahars com
menced to file Into tho Inclosuro.
They marched directly across the arena
toward tho rocks upon the opposite side,
where, spreading their bntltkc wings, they
roso nbovo tho high wall of tho pit, set
tling down upon the bouldera nbove.
These wore the reserved scats, tho boxes
of tho elect.
Hero they lolled, blinking their hideous
eyes, and doubtless conversing with ono
nnother In their slxth-sonse-fourth-dl-mcnslon
Kor tho first tlmo I beheld their queen.
She differed from tho others In no
feature that was appreciable to my earth
ly eyes; In fact, all JIaharn look nlIRo
to me; but when she crossed the arena,
nftcr tho balance of her femalo subjects
had found their boulders, bIio was pre
ceded by a scoro of hugo Sagoths, the
largest I had over seen, and on cither
sldo of her waddled a hugo thlpdar, while
behind came another scoro of Sagoth
At the barrier tho Sagoths clambered
up tho steep sldo with truly npcllko agil
ity, whllo behind them the haughty queen
roso upon her wings, with her two fright
ful dragons close bcsldo her, and settled
down upon the largest boulder of them
all. In tho exact centre of that side of
the amphitheatre which Is reserved for
tho dominant race.
Hero sho squatted, a most repulsive and
uninteresting queen; though doubtless
qulto as well assured of her beauty nnd
divine right to rule ns the proudest
monarch of tho outer world.
And then the music started muslo with
out sound! Tho Mahars cannot hear, so
tho drums nnd fifes nnd horns of earthly
bands are unknown among them. The
"band" consists of a score or more
Mahars. It filed out In tho centre of
the arena, where tho creatines upon tho
rocks might see It and thero It performed
for 15 or 20 minutes.

regular succession of measured move

dently plenscd the eye of the Mnhar as
tho cadenco of our own Instrumental
music pleases our ears.
Sometimes the hand took mensured steps
In unison to one side or tho other, or
backward and again forward; It all
seemed very silly and meaningless to
me; but nt tho end of the first ploco tho
Mahars upon the rocks showed tho first
Indications of enthusiasm that I had seen
displayed by tho dominant race of Pel
lucldar. They beat their great wings up and
down, nnd smoto their rocky perches
with their mighty tails until tho ground
shook. Then tho band started another
piece, nnd all was again ns silent ns tho
That was ono great beauty about Mahar
music If you didn't happon to llko a
pleco that was being played, nil you had
to do was to shut your eyes.
When tho band had exhausted Its
repertory It took wing and settled upon
rocks nbovo nnd behind tho queen. Then
tho business of tho day was on.
A man and woman were pushed Into
tho nrena by a couple of Sagoth guards
men. I leaned far forward In my sent to
scrutinize the female hoping against
hope thnt sho might prove to be another
than Dlan tho Beautiful.

"Ills kind roamed the outer crust with
tho cave bear and tho mammoth ages
and nges ago. Wo hnvo been carried
back n million years, David, to tho child

Hut I saw only the rnven hair of n half
naked girl, nnd my heart stood still In
dumb misery nt the sight of her, nor had
I any eyes for the wonders of natural
But for Perry and 3hnk. I Bhould
have leaped to tho floor of tho arena
nnd shared whatever fnto lay In storo
for this beauty of tho Stone Age.
With the advent of tho bos they call
tho thing a thng within Pellucldar two
spears wero tossed Into the nrenn at tho
feet of tho prisoners. It seemed to me
that a bean-shooter would havo been ns
offectlvo against tho mighty monster ns
these pitiful weapons.
An tho animal npproached tho two, bel
lowing and pawing tho ground with the
strength of many earthly bulls, nnother
door directly beneath us was opened, and
from It Issued tho most terrific roar that
had even fallen upon my outraged cars.
I could not nt first see tho beast from
which emanated this fearsomo challenge,
but the sound had tho effect of bringing
tho two victims round with a sudden
start, nnd then I saw the girl's face. She
was not Dlan!
AND now, ns the two stood frozen In
. terror. I saw tho author of that
fearsomo sound creeping steadily Into

to maintain their mighty thows.
Upon ono sldo of tho doomed pair the
thng bellowed and advanced, and upon
the other, tarag, tho frightful, crept
toward them with gaping mouth nnd
The mnn seized up tho spears, hnndlng
ono of them to tho woman. At tho
sound of tho roaring of the tiger tho bull's
bellowing became a Veritable frenzy of
rngeful nolac. Ncvor In my life had I
heard such nti Infernal din nfl tho two
brutes made, nnd to think It was all lost
upon tho hideous reptiles for whom tho
Bhow was being staged!
Tho thag wns charging now from one
sldo and tho tarng from the other. Tho
two puny things standing between them
seemed nlrcndy lost, but nt the very
moment that tho beasts seemed upon
them the man grasped his companion by
tho arm and togothcr they leaped to
one side, while the frenzied creatures
camo together llko locomotives In col
lision. Thero ensued a battlo royat which for
sustained nnd frightful ferocity trans
cends tho power of Imagination or
Time nnd again tho colossal bull tossed
tho enormous tiger high Into tho air,
but each tlmo that tho huge cat touched

with apparently undiminished strength
nnd seemingly Increased Ire.
For a while tho man nnd woman busied
themselves only with keeping out of tho
way of tho two creatures, but tlnnlly I
saw them separate and each creep
stealthily toward ono of the combatants.
The tiger was now upon the bull's broad
back, clinging to the hugo neck with
powerful fnngs, while Its long, strong
talons ripped the heavy hide Into shreds
For a moment tho bull stood bellowing
and quivering with pain and rngo, Its
cloven hoofs wide-spread. Its tall lashing
viciously from sldo to side, nnd then, In
a mad orgy of bucking. It went careening
about tho arena In a frenzied attempt to
unseat Its rending rider. It was with
difficulty that tho girl avoided tho first
mad rush of the wounded animal.
All Us crforts to rid Itself of the tiger
seemed futile, until In desperation It
throw Itself upon tho ground, rolling over
and over. A llttlo of this fo disconcerted
tho tiger, knocking Its breath from It,
I Imagine, that It lost Its hold, and then,
quick as a cat, tho great thng was up
again nnd hnd burled those mighty horns
deep In tho tarag's abdomen, pinning him
to the floor of tho arena.
The groat cat clawed nt the shaggy
head until eyes nnd cars were gone nnd
naught but n few strips of ragged, bloody
flesh remained upon the skull. Yet
through all the agony of that fearful
punishment the thng still stood motion

enemy, and ran his spear through tho
As the animal's flerco clawing ceased
tho bull raised his gory, sightless head
and, with a horrid roar, ran headlong

With great leaps and bounds he came

Owing to the fact that the Kvenlno
Ledger is conjfanflp aked questions
relating to mailer 0 tllqueitc, It has
been decided to open a column In
kohlch queries of this Mni may be an
tioered. The column t edited under a pjeu
donymi but It Is, nevertheless, edited
bu an authority on social conventions,
who is prepared to answer clearly,
carefully and conclusively any query
ohlch may be propounded.
Qood form queries should be ad'
dressed to Deborah Hush, written on
one side of the paper and signed with
full name and address, though Initials
OltTiY will be published upon request.
On the subject of Invitation-!, a ques
tion often asked Is Just whnt Invitations
require nnswers Immediately and Is It ever
permitted not to answer an Invitation.
The only Invitation which does not re
quire nn early answer Is tho tea card,
but It Is customary In this country to
leave or send cards on the day of tho
tea. If ono Is unable to nttend cards
should be Inclosed In nn envelope fitted
for tho purposo nnd should bo mailed so
ns to nrrlve on tho day of the tea. If,
however, ono has Intended going nnd Is
prevented, It Is polite to mall tho cards
that evening, so tho hoste.11 will know of
the good Intentions to nttend. Whether one
attends n tea or not cards should be left.
A tray Is always provldod at tho door on
which to place them when entering tho
house. Othor Invitations should bo an
swered as soon ns possible, with tho ex
ceptions of church wedding Invitations,
which do not require an answer.
Who Will Announce It?
Dear Deborah Hush I am an orphan
and havo only one brother, who Is 14 years
old. I nm engaged to bo married and
want to make tho announcement through
tho papers. Is it good rorm to announco
It myself. M. II. R.
If you havo no aunt, undo or cousin
who can announce it for you, tho only
thing to do Is to send the following form
to tho papers: The engagement of Miss
, dnughtor of tho late Mr. and
Mrs. , to Mr. Is announced.
How Soon Must I Answer?
Dear Deborah Hush I have received an
Invitation for a dinner and am not sure I
can ncccpt, ns a business engagement may
Interforo. Tho Invitation came yesterday.
How long could I wait to nnswer it? If
I could wait four days I might bo able to
nccept. J. M. G.
Etiquette demands nn answer ns speed
ily as possible, though It would not bo
considered rudo If the response came
within a week. In the case of a regret,
however, It Is bad form to let much tlmo
elapse, as the hostess will wish to Invito
nnother guest In your place.
Another Phase on tho Snndwlch
Dear Deborah Hush Perhaps you will
be Interested In another explanation of
tho reason why n man should not walk
between two women, ns tho phrase goes.
A man who walks In this way em
phasizes the opinion he holds of his own
Interest to tho two women with whom ho
happens to be walking. He should devote
himself to tho arduous duties of protect
ing the both of them Instead of Insisting
upon his neutrality, his ever so precious
and Impartial brilliance. What?
A lucid explanation, aside from tho
looks of the thing.
Dear Deborah Rush Is it necessary to
pay a call after attending a beefsteak
party at tho homo of friends?
It Is always correct to pay a call within
two weeks after attending a pnrty.
