Many flowers do not have all the parts.
The reattlesnake is an American snake
that gives full warning to an enemy approach-
by vibrating the end of its tail. This
movement causes a set of hard rings to rat-
noisily and woe betide the animal or
son that disregards the sound. The rattle
snake h s deadly fangs,whose attack is fatal
if the venom is not removed from the wound
quickly. Whisky is the worst possible medi-
cine to give a person suffering from snake
bite because it stimulates the heart and
causes the heart to force the blood more
rapidly through he body.
Originally rattlesnnkes were found gen-
erally over North America,especially in
stony and barren places. There are two spoci
es in South America.They are thick heavy
reptiles. They usually are not more than
five feet long.
The rings at he end of the tail are
formed by the slipping off of the snake's
skin. As the snake gets older the skin rolls.

room are in the class. Mr.Sellers is our
In our study club we learn about the
things nature has put here in this land of
ours. There are the flowers,plnnts,trees,
grasses,and weeds. Recently we studied
about the planets.
Last fall when the weather was nice we
took hikes. On one hike we collected leaves
which were placed in leaf books. On another
we gathered weed seeds,and on another insects.
On this trip we saw several snakes. We caught
two of them and brought them to the school
building. We kept them for some time and
studied them. .
I think we have a very interesting and
worth while activity in our nature study
club. Billy Smith,8A.
Earwig is the name for an order of bee-
tle like insects that are active at night.
They received this name from n mistaken be-
lief of former times in isolated communiti-
es that they crept into the ears of sleep-
ing persons. Although the destruction of
fruits and flowers has been attributed to
earwigs they are an aid to-farmers in that
they feed on thrips,snails,nnd caterpillars
Their upper wings are short and leathery,
and the lower are gauze-like. Theirfanten-
naelfeelers are long and delicate. On the,
abdomen is a strong pair of pincers,the use
for which has never been discovered.Earwigs
are found under stones, in decayed bark of
trees, and in moist places in most arts of
European countries. A very small species is
found in the northern and eastern part of the
United States and larger.ones in California
and Florida. Practically all of the species
found in the United States-is harmless.

However the European variety has estab-
lished itself in several western sectioni

NATURE STUDY .
In our Nature Study class we are do-
ing a little bit of experimenting. We
have planted a number of different kinds
of seeds in large flower pots. Some of
them are beans,corn,and orange Seeds.
The beans and corn sprouted right
away and grew rapidly-fThey were water-
ed carefully each day so that the would
neither gett too little or too much.
The proper fertilizers were given each
one so that it would grow best.
The corn now is about knee high and
doing well. However the beans are of
most interest because they have grown as
well or better than they would out of '
doors and now have large full sized greet
beans on them.
It is all very interesting and shows
what can be done in minature gradening.

Each Tuesday morning the boys of the
seventh and eighth grades have nature n
study. We have studied trees,grasses,
weeds,plants,flowers, and many other int-
eresting things of nature.
An interesting thing about grasses
is that there are about 4700 different
kinds and about lOOO are found in the '
United States. We divided grasses into
two classes: useful and harmful. Some of
the different useful grasses are wheat,
