"'H. M.' means Highly Magnified," returned the Woggle-Bug, proudly.

"Do not apologize, I beg of you" returned the Woggle-Bug, earnestly. "It affords me great pleasure to surprise people; for surely I cannot be classed with ordinary insects and am entitled to both curiosity and admiration from those I meet."

"Oh, I see." The Scarecrow viewed the stranger critically. "And are you, in truth, highly magnified?"

"You are, indeed," agreed his Majesty.

Tip had not yet taken his eyes off this wonderful personage. What he saw was a great, round, buglike body supported upon two slender legs which ended in delicate feet - the toes curling upward. The body of the Woggle-Bug was rather flat, and judging from what could be seen of it was of a glistening dark brown color upon the back, while the front was striped with alternate bands of light brown and white, blending together at the edges. Its arms were fully as slender as its legs, and upon a rather long neck was perched its head - not unlike the head of a man, except that its nose ended in a curling antenna, or "feeler," and its ears from the upper points bore antennae that decorated the sides of its head like two miniature, curling pig tails. It must be admitted that the round, black eyes were rather bulging in appearance; but the expression upon the Woggle-Bug's face was by no means unpleasant.

"Most certainly, my dear sir" answered the stranger, briskly. "Is not my name upon the card?"

"You are, indeed," agreed his Majesty.

"Are you really a Woggle-Bug?" enquired the Scarecrow.

The boy read aloud: "MR. H. M. WOGGLE-BUG, T. E."

"You are, indeed," agreed his Majesty.

"I confess," said the Scarecrow, "that your abrupt appearance has caused me surprise, and no doubt has startled my companions. I hope, however, that this circumstance will not distress you. We shall probably get used to you in time."

The stranger removed his hat with a flourish, bowed very low, and then responded: "Good morning, one and all. I hope you are, as an aggregation, enjoying excellent health. Permit me to present my card." With this courteous speech it extended a card toward the Scarecrow, who accepted it, turned it over and over, and handed it with a shake of his head to Tip.

"You are, indeed," agreed his Majesty.

"If you will permit me to seat myself in your august company," continued the stranger, "I will gladly relate my history, so that you will be better able to comprehend my unusual - may I say remarkable? -appearance."

"Are you really a Woggle-Bug?" enquired the Scarecrow.

"Those letters express my degree," answered the Woggle-Bug, with a condescending smile. "To be more explicit, the initials mean that I am Thoroughly Educated."

"You may say what you please," answered the Tin Woodman, briefly.

"Do not apologize, I beg of you" returned the Woggle-Bug, earnestly. "It affords me great pleasure to surprise people; for surely I cannot be classed with ordinary insects and am entitled to both curiosity and admiration from those I meet."

"'H. M.' means Highly Magnified," returned the Woggle-Bug, proudly.

So the Woggle-Bug sat down upon the grass, facing the little group of wanderers, and told them the following story:

"You are, indeed," agreed his Majesty.

"Dear me" ejaculated the Pumpkinhead, staring somewhat intently.

The boy read aloud: "MR. H. M. WOGGLE-BUG, T. E."

The boy read aloud: "MR. H. M. WOGGLE-BUG, T. E."

"You are, indeed," agreed his Majesty.
