"Oh" said the Scarecrow, much relieved.

"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."

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

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

"The chill nights rendered me stiff and motionless, for I wore no clothing, but each morning the warm rays of the sun gave me new life and restored me to activity. A horrible existence is this, but you must remember it is the regular ordained existence of Woggle-Bugs, as well as of many other tiny creatures that inhabit the earth.

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

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

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

"Pardon me," returned the Scarecrow. "My brains are slightly mixed since I was last laundered. Would it be improper for me to ask, also, what the 'T.E.' at the end of your name stands for?"

Tip's eyes were round and wondering, and the Saw-Horse uttered a sigh and turned away its head.

"You are, indeed," agreed his Majesty.

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

"Oh" said the Scarecrow, much relieved.

"It is," said the Scarecrow. "But may I ask what 'H. M.' stands for?"

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

"How very peculiar" said the Tin Woodman.

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

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

"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."

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.

"How very peculiar" said the Tin Woodman.

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

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

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.
