AMUSING TOY FOR THE BOYS
Automatic Fighter* Pummel Each Oth-
er aa They Bounce About—Elastic
Band Doea Trick.
An amusing toy that can be made by
any bright boy at home la that shown
here. It was Invented by a Massa-
chusetts man, but Is not hard to con-
struct. Cut two men’s flgurea out of
heavy pasteboard, having one leg of
each advanced, as In the cut. Pivot
on each arm, bent at the elbow. The
pivoting can be dono with strong
thread, knotted on both sides of the
figure. Take two pieces of wood half
an Inch square, and three or four
Inches long and cut slits In the tops
to engage the feet of the manikins
that ars thrust forward. Connect these
two pieces of wood with a strong elas-
tic band and by means of a curved
piece of wire Inserted In the bottom
of each. To make the pugilists fight,
take both pieces of wood between' the
fingers and press down on the wire
spring . Then suddenly release the
toy and it will bounce up In the air
and the rubber band will bring the fig-
ures toward and away from each oth-
er in a series of contractoins and re-
coils, during which time their pivoted
arms will swing vigorously against
OLD-FASHIONED BOY PASSED
Youngster of Olden Days Has Perished
in Track of Modern Living—Small
Flats Driven Him Away.
What has become of the old-fash-
ioned boy who always had his pockets
full of the treasured loot of youth?
What has become of the lad who car-
ried a barlow knife, a couple of hun-
dred feet of kite string and fish line, a
dosen marbles, a piece of chalk and a
few washers and spike nails around
secreted in bis voluminous pockets?
No one ever sees him any more. He
does not inhabit the streets or the va-
cant lots. He doesn’t go to school, and
If be did the modern wiseacres would
hold him up at the entrance and re-
lieve him of his treasures. What then
has become of him? Where has he
Boy lovers say that the small flat
has driven him out and he has evolved
into something not nearly so whole-
some or else he has become extinct.
They claim that the passing of the real
homes has caused the normal boy to
become a tough little reprobate, who
oftentimes finds his way into the re-
form school or the home for yuvenile
delinquents, all because he has no
chance any more to do the things that
the young male human wants to do.
The cramped-up flats have no room in
them for the modern boy. There is
hardly enough room for sleeping and
eating and other absolutely necessary
things. Even the woodshed, the par-
ticular province of the small boy, has
vanished now that steam heat has be-
come the recognized method for keep-

Their Step-Sister’s Surprise

You look like a prlnceea a-altllng there.
With cheeks so red and eyes so blue,

With your golden hair.
With feet so tiny and sleppers blue.

MUSICAL TOY IS QUITE ODD
Air Pulsations Give Various Notes to
Blast From Whistle—Invented by
New York Man.
The New York man who invented
the Instrument shown here called It a
musical top. Whether It Is musical or
not may be a matter of opinion. A
rubber tube has a whistle at one end
and a bulb with a flat surface at the
other. An article reeembllng a short
drumstick, with a heavy head comes
with it. The whistle is placed at
the month and blown, and during this
operation the drumstick Is pounded at
Intervals on the bulb, sending pulsa-
tions of air through the tube and
breaking the blast from the whistle
Into various notes of length and vol-

Trying to Imagine What She Had
There had seemed nothing for her to
do but pick up tlfe fallen reins of do-
mestic government and handle them as
best she could. It was appalling how
unprepared she was, for she had
learned little save music. She had
meant to teach it, but, alas, her teach-
ing had begun and ended with the
family circle. As for practicing, she
never had time for it now. Staring
up at the moon, she wandered If she
had done all the duty required of her.
At least she had done as well as she
could. Her stepsisters, handsome,
too, with their red hair and glowing
complexions. To see them was to ad-
She had always divided the money
that came her way impartially among
the three. It went such a little way
after all. They were big and it took
so much cloth to clothe them. Then,
too, they had such a love for adorn-
ment. She was at her wits’ ends some-
times to supply their demands in
ways that would not distress her fa-
ther. It was a good thing that she
was small, for the best parts of the
girls’ discarded clothing made over
very nicely for her. Only in footgear
was she forced to be extravagant.
She wore out so many shoes walking
at her house work.
The girls did not help her very
much. They hated housework. She
could not blame them. She thought
she hated it herself sometimes. And
really it was as easy to do a task her-
self aB to coax somebody to do it for
one. The girls were young—Just In
the midst of their girlhood and wild
to have all the good times they could.
Youth came but once in a lifetime,
as Louise said.
It same to Ruth suddenly that she
had never had time to be young at
all. First she had worked so hard In
order to become self-supporting; then
she bad had to take charge of the
household. For eight years she had
played the part of a self-denying
house mother. She had been to no
parties, had no smart frocks. As for
beaus—why. she had had no time at
first and latterly the girls had won
all the attention Ixiutse was al-
ready engaged Siio looked upon Ruth
its an old maid. "You’ll never marry
now,” she said. No. she never would. I
The gills would go. but she would
stay. Her father and she would be j
old togetb r. For her It would be a
esse of "t. usts and leftovers" to the
Hark! The man next door was play-|
Ing and singing. She knew what he
was singing. It was "The Monotone ” i
What a strange man be was or, at
least, Helen said he was strange, and
she knew him better than any of
them, unless. Indeed, It was her ra-
ther. Ever stnie he bad come with
bis old sister to live In the beautiful
house next door bn had been klml to
them all, sharing his fruit and flow-
ers with them and lending the girls
books uml music. They were always
going to hts bouse on some mission
or other, and they were always wel-
come. Ruth had gone once decor-
ously to call, as befitted her position
aa nominal head of her father’s house-
hold. She hud been a little awed by
what she had seen. It must be so
nice to have mgs that had no worn
places and chairs whoso Interior
mechanism of springs was successful-
ly concealed by abundant stuffing.
Mrs. Fleet had been very sweet to
her, but Ruth had felt somehow that
she preferred the society of the girls.
And so she had not gone again.
The piano next door ceased. Mr.
Marr evidently did not Intend to sing
again. Ruth wished he would. When-
ever she heard him playing she felt
an Impulse to fly to the old piano In
the parlor and practice with might
and main. It was a pity that her
music had cost so much and had
come to nothing.
"Miss Ruth!’’ A man stood bare-
headed on the grass before her look-
ing at her, a kindly smile under bis
_ She brought her eyes down from
the moon to him with a start. "So
the youngsters have gone and left
you?” he said. “I heard a commo-
tion hero a little while ago and sus-
pected that the river had called them.
It has called me, too. I’ve got a new
boat down there under the bank—the
paint Is Just dry on It—oh,' a beautiful
boat—and as my sister is as afraid of
water as a hen I’ve come to see If
you won’t go with me for a little row.
"Oh, Mr. Marr!” Ruth gasped In de-
light and her face bloomed in shy
radiance. “Why, I’ve Just been dying
to go—and now I can! It’s so good
of you to ask me.”
Oh, the wonder of the river and the
moon and the boat’s motion and the
man at the oars, whose face looked
young enough and handsome enough
In the generous light! He sung to
her softly in his rich voice; he talked
to her; he told her amusing stories.
And Ruth forgot that she was timid
and forlorn and laughed and confided
In him until it seemed that she had
told him every secret of her poor lit-
“It is a pity that you have had to
neglect your music when you love It
so,” he said, “but I am sure that with
a few good lessons you could pick It
up again easily.”
"I suppose so,” Ruth sighed, "but
you see I haven't the time.”
“Take time. Give your housekeep-
ing over to your sisters.” As she
stared at him In surprise he leaned
forward resting upon the oars
"Ruth, tell me, if you could, wouldn’t
you emancipate yourself by marrying
somebody who had money and would
be good to you. Wouldn’t you, dear?’
“Yes, somebody would-^does. I,
Ruth. I must seem like a pretty old
fellow to you, but I believe I could
make you happy. I want you, dear.
And my sister is willing. We have
talked it over together. If you will
marry me I can promise that yen
shall never regret.”
An hour later Ruth, somewhat re-
covered from the excitement of re-
ceiving and accepting her first pro-
posal, stole upstairs. As she opened
the door of her room an unsual sight
greeted her. The girls were there
squatting on the floor about the opeu
“We couldn't see the moon any-

have you been, Ruth?”
‘Tve been on the river,” Rutb an-
swered, trying to kepp her happy
voice steady. “I went with Mr. Marr
In his new boat. And—and, oh, girls!
I may as well tell you. I'm—he—ITS
going to marry him!”
There was an aghast silence. Then
“Well,” she said, "of course it’s all
right If you love him.”
“Love him!” Ruth repeated, and
her voice rang. “I adore him, girls,"
