The Scarecrow Plans An Escape
Tip slipped away from the girls
and followed swiftly after Ihe soldier
with the green wrflskers. The invad

out of the walls and paving stones
with the points of their knitting
needles. Bo the soldier and the boy

The Scarecrow and Jack Pump
kinhead were still playing at quoits
in the courtyard when the game was
interrupted by the abrupt entrance
of the Royal Army of Oz, who came
flying in without his hat or gun, his
clothes in sad array and his long
board floating a yard behind him
as he ran.
"Tally one for me," said the
Scarecrow, calmly. "What's wrong,
my man " he adtled, addressing the
"Oh! your majesty—your majesty,
the city is conquered!" gasped tlie
Royal Army, who was all out of
"This is quite sudden," said the
Scarecrow. "But please go and bar
ull the doors and windows of the
palace, while I show this Pumpkin
head how to throw a quoit."
The soldier hastened to do this,
while Tip, who had arrived at his
heels, remained in the courtyard to
look at tlie Scarecrow with wonder
ing eyes. ,
His Majesty continued lo throw
the quoits as coolly as if no danger
threatened his throne, bu the Pump
kinhead, having caught sight of Tip,
ambled toward the boy as fast as his
wooden legs would go.
"Good afternoon, noble parent!"
he cried, delightedly. "I'm glad to
see you are here. Ti;at terrible Saw-
Hore ran away wlt'i me."
"I suspected it," iid Tip. "Did you
get hurt? Are you cracked at all?"
"No, I arrived safely," answered
Jack, "and his Majesty has been very
kind indeed to me.

Green Whiskers returned, and the

with fear.
"But where . was my Standing

jesty, looking at tlie Soldier, grdvely.
'iYour Standing Army was run

"for no man could face tlie terrible

"Well." said the Scarecrow, after
a moment's thought. "I don't mind
much the loss of niy throne, for it's a
tiresome job to rule over the Emer

that it makes my head ache. But I

"In an emergency," he announced,
"it is always a good thing to pause
and reflect. Please excuse me while
I pause and reflect."
"But we also are in danger,"
said the Pumpkinhead, anxious
lj*. "If any of these girls understand
cooking, my end is not far oft!"
"Nonsense!" exclaimed the Scare
crow; "they're too busy to cook,
even if they know how!"
"But should I remain here a
prisoner for any length of time,"
protested Jack. "I'm liable to spoil."
"Ah! then yd# would not he fit
to associate with," returned the
Scarecrow. "The matter is more
serious than 1 suspected."
"You," said the Pumpkinhead,
gloomily, "are liable to live for many
years. My life is necessarily short.
So 1 must take advantage of the
few days that remain to me."
"There, there! Don't worry,"
answered tlie Scarecrow, soothing
ly; "if you'll keep quiet long enough
for me to think, I'll try to find some
way for us all to escape."
So the others waited in patient
silence while the Scarecrow walked
to a corner and stood with his face
to the wall for a good five minutes.
At the end of that time he faced
them with a more cheerful expres
sion upon his painted face.
"Where is the Saw-Horse you rode
here?" he asked the Pumpkinhead.
"Why, I said he was a jewel, and
so your man locked him up in the
royal treasury," said Jack.
"It was tlie only place R could
think of, your Majesty," added the
Soldier, fearing he had made u
blunder. i
"It pleases me very much," said)
the Scarecrow. "Has Ihe animal
been fed?"
"Oh, yes; I gave him a heaping
peck of sawdust."
"Excellent!" cried the Scarecrow.
"Bring the horse here at once."

"Like as the Hart Desireth the
Water Brook," one of H. J. Storer's
tuneful works, has been widely used
by choirs of protestant churches.
Storer has been most fortunte in
meeting the needs of the average
choir. "The Day Is Past and Over"
is another beautiful authem number
by the same composer. Storer is a
Syracuse, N. Y., musician and has
written many beautiful hymn tunes, a
number of which appear both in the
Protestant Kpiscopal and Methodist
Kpiscopal hymnals.
H. C. MacDougall, widely known or
ganist and choirmaster, recommends
the changing ot key in quite a num
ber of hymns, in which the compos

ordinary choir voice in their desire to
accomplish something harmonically

Tip climbed quickly to Ills place,
and the Soldier and the Scarecrow

that he was liable to fall off as soon
as the horse started.

King to his Army, "and He us all

Police are inclined to disbelieve

victim of a kidnaper last night, when
she apparently disappeared from

Is likely that the man who walked
away with the girl when he met her
and her companions at Sixth and
Forster streets about S o'clock, knew
her and intended taking her home.
According to word received last
night he accompanied her only
about a block and she reached her
home about 10.30 o'clock, after her
father had come to Harrisburg to
search for her.
According to W. E. Marshall. 629

came Into his store about 9.30 and
had a prescription filled, as she has
done repeatedly, her mother being

said, and said nothing about being

together, also lashing them to the
body of the Saw-Horse; so- there
seemed little danger of their tumb

Several of the girls, who stood
outside guarding tne palace, were
knocked over by the Saw-Horse's
mad rush. Others run screaming out
of the way, and only one or two
jabbed their knitting-needles' fran
tically at the escaping prisoners.
Tip got one small prick in his left
arm, which smarted for an hour
afterward; but the needles had no
effect upon the Scarecrow or Jack
I'umpkinhead, who never even sus
pected they were being prodded.
As for the Saw-llorse, he made a
wonderful record, upsetting a fruit
curb overturning several meek look
ing men, and iinally bowling over
the new Guardian of the Gate—a
fussy little fat woman appointed by
General J injur.
Nor did the impetuous charger
stop then. Once outside the walls
of the Emerald City he dashed
along the rad to the West with fast
and violent leaps that shook the
breath out of the boy and tilled the
Scarecrow with wonder.

once before, so he devoted every
effort to holding, with both hands,
his pumpkin head upon its stick, en

shouted the Scarcrow. "My straw is
all shaking down into my legs."
But Tip had no breath to speak,
so the Saw-llorse continued his wi'd
career unchecked and with un
abated speed.
Presently they came to the banks
of a wide river, and without a pause
the wooden steed gave one final leap
and launched them all in mid-air.
A second later they were rolling,
splashing and bobbtng about in the
water, the horse struggling franti

its riders being first plunged be
neath the ranid current and then
floating upon the surface like corks.

for cancelling the contract they held
for Miss Stewart's services.
