The v:hooIs-. as told about by our fathers, were rude and impracti:al. The building " irj v, ' hi::h school was held was made of logs and mud. What would happen if we would have to go to school in the same kind of buildings in vvdiich they v-erc taught? Fuppose we had rone to school for eight years in a modern school building and then we were changtd and placed in one of those log ;l-, ol houses, what wculd happ ' cn? Answer that for yourself. Then there- is an. improvement in the building. An.othtr improvement is in the methods of teaching. In the earlv da s, ' .e are told, the school master was guarded by a " ' big, heavy, birch rod and a long, slim, pointed, dunce cap, " but now he is fortified by the good will and hiyalty of the pupils. W ' c can also remember that not long ago " Dont ' s " were used profusely. As we pupils entered the school room, a large, staring an(l glaring " DOX " T " was the first word w e read upon the board. It was the first word that we heard the first day we entered a school room. As wt can recall, this " drm ' t " was followed by a great number of articles stating whcit we could not do. In fact, l)y so many that we hardlv knew wdiat wc cinld do. IJut now as we enter the school room we see the " DOX ' T " has, been erased and with it went the restrictions, and in its place we see, " DO KlTiHT. " If this is not a sign of improvement, there is no such word in the dictionary. jfi i t " i OUR BOYS O muse, inspire my lips with pra:s3 As I reflect on virtues seen So plainly — as their heads they raise — Our own dear boys of seventeen. Twenty-two Freshmen, perfect all, In the play of life will soon appear; Each possessing a fortliead tall — Each filling his place without a fear. Boys of whom we ' re justly proud. Of whom trite sayings are not allowed: For whom we ' ll fight and honor too — Yes, boys, we ' re truly proud of you. L. T. PLATT 1898-1903 Teacher of English and Mathemat- ics at Red Key H.

S. (Uoursr nf tit g Since I he new laws regulating Industrial Education were enacted by the General . ssembly in 1913, the course of study for the Angola High School has been in a state of transition. 3i[arked changes are being made to have the course comply with these laws and State Board requirements whicli are flex- ible enough to permit adjustment to local conditions. As the predominant interests of this community are agricultural, the course is designed with such ' interests in mind. Hie greatest change will occur in the ninth year from which Latin and Algebra will be transferred to tenth year. But with all the clianges contemplated, the rec|uirements will remain just as rigorous as heretofore. Thirty-two credits will still be recpiired for graduation from the Angola High School. Of these thirty-two credits, at present eighteen are re- quired. A credit means satisfactory work in one subject recited five periods per week for one semester. The course in force at present, and under which me class of 1914 is graduating, is outlined below. ENGLISH Language is fundamentally the basis of all education. W ithout a fair knowledge of his mother tongue, it is impossible for any person to become a clear think er or to make himself understood. Hence the work in English is emphasized in the High School course. Eour years are offered, three years of which are required for graduation. Eor those wdio take a minimum of the foreign language requirement, four years of English are necessary to graduate. The work in English consists of the study of composition and rhetoric and the reading of English classics together with the history of American ' and English literatures in the fourth year. In addition to the critical study of classics in class, a number of books are required for home reading, upon- which the pupils are examined. Memorizing choice selections and class de- bates are features of the English course. Beyond the regular work in Eng-- lish, a course of technical English Grammar is offered during the last semes- ter of the Senior year. HISTORY For the enrichment of the student ' s life and the development of his moral nature, no better subject is found than History. Besides giving one a picture of the progress of the human race. History affords the best basis for development of the reasoning powers. A further reason why it should ' claim a prominent place in the school program, is the basis it furnishes for tlie solution of governmental problems with which the student must come iit contact. In the Angola high school three years of history are offered, one- year of which is required for graduation. The history work consists of one- year in Greek and Roman History, one year in Modern, one-half year of United States History and one-half year of Civics. The work is given in thc order jnst indicated. The work in Civics is studied from the standpoint of present day governmental problems. To make it as practical as possible, the 5tndents use the Chicago Record Herald and Literary Digest in addition lo the regular text. LANGUAGE In this age of demands for practical results we tend to measure every- -Ihirig bv a commercial standard. AVe ask what it will yield in dollars and cents. Xow, material results are not always the most practical, for they may 15C too transitorv. On the other hand, therefore, permanent qualities of mind ;and character must be considered. For this reason foreign languages are ■given a prominent place in the course of study. The foreign languages, when seriouslv considered, give discipline of mind and thought, power of expres- sion, information, outlook, the sense of the noble and beautiful in literature. Two languages, Latin and German, are offered in the Angola High School. Pupils on entering have the option of either language, which must be pursued two years for graduation. The first year ' s work in Latin consists of a studv of -forms, derivatives and constructions; in the second year, ' Caesars Commentaries are studied ; the third year is spent in Cicero ' s Ora- lions. Composition is given one day each week in the second and third year. The first vear of German is devoted to the study of declensions and con- ingations together with reading of easy prose. The direct method is used. In the second vear, the work is the reading of a number of German classics together with composition. The recitation work of this year is conducted in German. There is no third year class this year, but a course is outlined in Avhich the language is studied from a literary point of view. Li addition to tiie above work a German club meets one hour each week from 7 o ' clock to 8 o ' clock. The purpose of the clul) is to develop the ability to speak the lan- _£ ' aage. The program is given in German. SCIENCE In order to meet the demands of the world successfully, one must be -aisle to cope intelligently with his physical environment. A knowledge of ■ lrious ])hases of nature is essential to give man this ability. To wait until one has reached the High School to begin his or her study of natural ])hennmena, is ])utting the work too late in tlie student ' s life. Such sciences as Nature Studv. ( Geography and Physiology are given in the grades. On 1I1C r)ther han.d, to stop science study with the grades, is giving the child too neager knowledge of his surroundings. The course of Science in this school IS intended to broaden the child ' s view and to make his environment his £cr ant. ] " our years of Science are oft " ered, of which two years are recjuired. The Science offered is one year each of Physiography, P)Otany. Physics and Chem- istry. Df these either Physiography or Potany fills one year ' s requirement and I ' hysics or Chemistry makes out the second year ' s work. The majority of the students elect i ' hysiography and Chemistry. The Botany is largely agricultural; and the other sciences are applied to problems of home, farm and shop. MATHEMATICS Probably the only real test of formal log ic that the majority of people get is from the study of Mathematics. A ' hile there are some other branches- of study that furnish more wholesome means for the development of the reasoning powers in general, there is no high school subject Avhich demands :-uch exactitude and logical arrangement of statements to reach conclusions as Mathematics. Again, by its use of symbolism. Mathematics lays the foundation for a higher ] lane of thinking. Whenever the mind is able ta reason readily with symbols, it is then capable of doing logical thinkings And logical thinking is only common sense organized. In Mathematics the course covers three years of work, of which one year each is given to Algebra, Plane Geometry and Commercial Arithmetic. Two years of Mathematics are refjuired of all students for graduation. MANUAL TRAINING Alanual Training has gained a permanent place in public school work Both from psychological and commercial reasons it is a necessary part of cs ' ory child ' s training. It makes a strong appeal to the boys because of its mechanical and practical nature. From a psychological standpoint it is valued because it furnishes an opportunity for the training of the hand_ Again, the muscles are the great clarifiers of thought. have heretofore offered training for the heart and head but neglected the hand. The training of the three is the modern educational ideal. Three years ' work is outlined : two being given in the seventh and eighth grades and one year in the high school. In the high school wood work only- is given ; in the grades both wood work and sewing are given. In the seventh; and eighth grades the work is required ; in the high school it is elective, [it the high school the wood work is open to both boys and girls. In additioi? two years of cooking will be offered next year. The sewing is outlined in accordance with the National System of Domestic Science ; the wood w ork. in accordance with the Progressive System of Manual Training. MUSIC Since the ideals of education have risen to the height that calls for the development of the Avhole individual, any course of study that ignores or- neglects the emotional life of the child, is seriously defective. No one can- deny that the emotions do form a large factor in determining the conduct of man ; and that unless the emotions are properly directed they become a damaging force in societv. It is onlv when the emotions are centralized into pure sentiments that they become positive forces for good. Music has that power of centralization of emotions about pure sentiments, for which reasorD it naturally becomes a fundamental part of a course of study. In the High School the work in Music is fitted to the different stages of advancement of the students. " To those who have never pursued a sys- tematic study of music in the grades, an elementary course comprised of the rudiments is planned and required. In addition two other courses are given t: riC in fundamentals, the other in chorus work. Admission to the chorus work presupposes alMHty to read music readily. For studying- the master- pieces from an interpretative point of view and for developing an apprecia- tion for them, a X ' ictrola has lieen added to the department. DRAWING Drawing comes into courses of study for various reasons. Among these iwo reasons justifv its presence in a public school course. It is a means of pression that has been employed time out of mind ; and it is a valuable aid in the cultivation of the aesthetic sense in man and woman. At no time does this aesthetic sense de ' el( p so rapidly as in the high school period of child- Ln. -d. It is the time when the child is grasping for every means of expres- sing itself; it is also the time when beautiful " aircastles " " are built and the lrcams of future glor}- assert themslves. Drawing is one means affording -an opportunity to ])ul these in tangible form. While it is not the aim of the course in Drawing in this High School to make artists, yet it is one intention of this department to give the pupil a knowledge of the means by which an artist portrays his meaning in pencil a;i ' l color. The permanent object is to teach the student to see and to ex- press what he sees. The course includes lettering, perspective and landscape Work. The media used are pencil, charcoal, crayon and paint. The work is -Tcqiiired in the first year and is elective in the other years.

ZEMA CRAMPTON. utnr QIlaBB tstorg The Senior Class of 1914 is composed of nineteen members, eight of Avhom started together in the first grade under Miss Parish. The original eight are, Agness Pollock, Blanche Co_y, Bernice Ramsay, Frances Junod, (lenevra Bixler, Eber Jeft ' ery, Alan Parsell and Donald Sheldon. We were joined in the third grade by Samuel Pence; in the fourth by Harry ( " lilmore; in the sixth bv Ruth Miller; in the seventh by Florence Dy- gert and Adabelle W ' alcott, and in the eighth grade by Zema Crampton. In the first year of High School our number was increased to fifty-four , .As Freshmen we were very industrious, and had the honor of being called t! " ,e smartest Freshmen class that every entered the A. H. S. In the Sophomore year our troubles began, and many of our number dropped out. After overcoming our Freshman timidity, we began to write notes and whisper. As a result of our hilarity, our deportment dropped and we Avere given the pleasure of taking all the examinations. We had grown wiser by the time we reached our Junior year, and we worked more diligently, since we were nearing the goal of our desire. Ouv Senior year has been a veiy busy one. A ' e have accomplished much in our school work, and aside from this we have found time to engage in many social functions. We are sure that this has added much to the pleasure of our school year. ' ithout the constant help and interest of our teachers, we could never haA ' c been successful in graduating. They have ever been ready to help us over the difficult places. We appreciate this friendly care and watchfulness and feel sure that their influence will go with us through life. ■■aa REVELATIONS Xow it came to pass in the fourteenth }-ear of the twentieth century, the third month, and twenty-fourth day, during the reign of Luther, son of Martin, in the house of Piatt, in the town of Angola, as we, Ruth, the daugh.- ter of A ' illiam, and Agness, the daughter of Morton, were among the captives of the Senior class, that visions- of the future were revealed to us through an open.ing of the mist w hich separates the Present and Future. And a brightness was about it and out of the midst thereof came the likenesses of seventeen living creatures : and this was their appearance : Like unto the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the likeness of Gencvra Bixler as she appeared as Leonora in ' erdi ' s " II Trova- tore. " And lo. another figure came out of the midst, and we beheld Blanche Coy. " ably " performing the duties of a housewife in a small mining town in A " ashington. And it came to pass as we gazed on this scene that the picture dimmed and another appeared in which we beheld the senate chamber with all the coiigressmen gathered therein, barkening to a great oration by the presiden.t of the senate, Eber Jefifery. And lo. as we sat spellbound, staring at the wonders wdiich were being ' .vrought, behold there was a commotion in the crowd and Zema Crampton came forth followed by Helen Rummel whom she introduced as her private secretary. " ' erily, I say unto you, women shall have equal rights witli men, " she spake, and was again lost in the midst thereof. Then behold there came forth from their midst, two people and took their places in the opening between Present and Future. Thus it was that we perceived Donald Sheldon, who sitteth with his pallette and brushes, painting a picture of his charming model, Esther Chard. Thus it Avas these great revelations came to us and we sank into our chairs and sighed heavily, but lo, we were aroused by the sound of beautiful music from the direction of our vision. We gazed, and lo, out of the group beheld the slender figure of a maiden playing the sweet strains of Wilhelm Tell upon a violin. Behold this was Adabelle A ' alcott. the class violinist. And lo, we heard a voice in the wilderness, saying, " Hasten thee into the nearby village and there ye will find a beloved one, Florence Garrett, and a crowd of pupils shall be round about her barkening to the words which she imparts to them. And again we looked and saw a great and golden light in the distance, and as we drew near we beheld a grove of oranges, and in the midst was Alan Parsell directing the plucking of the fruit. And there was at that time another figure wdio appeared and spake: " Lo, I, Samuel A. Pence, am editor of the San Francisco Call, and it has come to pass that Bernice Ramsay, the well known illustrator, is holding forth in our Art Department. " And it came to pass while we were gazing we discerned a ship niid-way of the sea, and lo, we beheld thereon onr classmate, Florence Dygert, o: her way to the Philippines, being still in quest of the one of her choice. Now once again there came forth ont of the mist a familiar figure in the person of Harry Ciilmore, who being of a mechanical turn of mind, had found a position as chauffeur for A incent Astor. Farther on we beheld a home wdierein cur friend, Frau ' es Junod, went hap])ily about her domestic duties. And lo, as these visions were slowdy fading f rom our memories, v.e could dimly discern the faces of Lloyd Wilson and Rose Kohi. quietly settled down- at their beautiful country home. At this time the opening in the mist closed and we were permitted to see no further into the future. SENIOR CLASS POEM Years have come and years departed, Since we first as classmates met; Years of toil, but years of pleasure- Pleasure we can ne ' er forget. While the dear old days recalling Memory weaves a magic spell, May it never be unbroken, But our future joys foretell. Tou, O future, art uncertain. But our God, who reigns above, Watching o ' er us, still will lead us; Trust we now his power and love. CLASS WILL Know all men by these presents, That we, the undersigned, the Class ol.

Suninr (Claaa IftBtorg 20 3014 History, broadly speakinj , concerns itself with only the most important. events of the human race. The history of the world is largely that of its battles, since might still makes right, and the triumphs of the conqueror prove the survival of the fittest. The class of 191 5 has been truly militant, having waged three years of civil war, the ammunition being chiefly B. B. shot, paper wads and erasers.. Let us rapidly pass over this period of our existence, when we were all monkeys, and also the semi-barbaric age, when we were enveloped in the darkness of the grades to the beginning of the Renaissance period which began on the fourth day of September, nineteen hundred and eleven. On that day the green grocer ' s wagon delivered at the door of the High School, fifty-five bewildered freshmen, no cold storage products, but the real thing " , all green and guaranteed not to fade. Although a large number of our class have fallen by the wayside, we we have inherited six heirlooms, chiefly from former classes, so that we now muster eighteen. In our Freshman year we organized our class after many embarrassing situations. We also established a successful postoffice, but that was soon discovered by some of the faculty and was annihilated to our great sorrow. The next year we felt more dignified and watched with pleasure the mistakes of the Freshmen. By this time we had realized that there was something else to do besides gaze around, so we began studying. This year our weakest point has been deportment, as we all have been inclined to whisper. Although we sufifered those few days of examination, we enjoyed ourselves the other part of the year. Our greatest aim now is to become Seniors, and although our class is small, we ar e determined to be the best class of all.. VICTROLA MORNING ] Ir. Letts: ' ' All take yonr seats for chorus! " (Everybody moves very quietly.) Miss Steva enters upon the scene. " This is Victrola Morning ! You may all go back to your own seats. Dean, will you and Ralph act as pall bearers? " (Grand shuffle.) After a few mild moments of anxious waiting, the procession moves slo-wly up the hall with liss Steva as the only mourner. We all remain silent and sit with bowed heads while the trio enter and place the dark, dismal box upon the groaning table. Aliss Steva slams back the roof, puts on a black wheel and turns to the solemn gathering. At this pitiful point she gives us a short, snappy synopsis of some sad, sentimental story. Then, after several minutes of continuous cranking, she releases the creaking clutch, slams down the large lid and away we go. The orchestra grinds off several mad measures of melodious, mystifying music and the sweet soprano soloist steps spasmodically upon the scene. She softly sings several sentimental strains in German, hesitates for an inspiring instant and then pours forth a cloud-burst of irritative Italian or something sadly similar. Everyone leans forward in sickening suspense. Ir. A " itsaman ' s hair mounts to erect position, (mirabile dictu.) But still she soars on louder and higher. The terrified top flies furiously from the miserable machine and she gains her freedom in a frenzy. Up! Up! Up! Piercing . But have a heart ! Mr. Letts heroically rushes to the rescue, pushes the electric bell and all is ofif. SOPHOMORES (ni|p nrjl|omarp (ElaBa, ' 10 ' .

EDNA SPADE, Poet. iffrrfllimau Qllass l tstary In the fall of 1906, sixty happy children entered the primary grades of the Angola Pnblic Schools, as pupils of Miss Parish. After a struggle that has lasted nine years, Ave find only seven of the original number in the Freshman class: Carlton Smith, DeLoss Goodale, Virgil Kundard, Letha Rozell, Edna Spade, Martha Kankamp and Emily Waugh. Of this number, only the three boys have remained continuously in the Angola schools. The girls have spent a part of the time in various other places, but, like " bad pennies, " have returned to complete the course in Old A. H. S. At present the Freshman Class numbers forty-four — twenty-six boys and eighteen girls. As a class we do not boast of achievements " ] linervian, Thespian or Euterpean : " we do not pretend to be txen a " pretty pert set of youngsters. " We are just a plain, ordinary lot, but we are daily striving to attain success with our motto, " Perseverance Conquers All, " as our guide. —HISTORIAN.

Humphreys. f S33-Xca;y E. L. DodgG Treasurer Atlibltrfi Athletics is very essential to a complete education. Without it Higfh School life is comparatively dead to the majority of boys and girls. Many students who would not otherwise finish the High School course are urged on by athletics. The bodv exerts a strong influence over the mind. AX ' hile now and then Ave find a brilliant intellect associated with a weak and sickly body, in general, health and vigor of the body lead to a clear intellect. If athletics is properly conducted it not only promotes physical development and good morals, but it also creates enthusiasm in the school work. A school without its athletic teams has no means of associating with the adjoining schools and of becoming acquainted with the students. The Athletic Association of the A. H. S. was not organized until late in September. Se eral previous attempts had been made but the eligible miem- bers failed to secure support and abandoned the idea. Later the Faculty strong! V encouraged organization and an athletic meeting was called. The following officers were elected : President Ir. George Letts Mce-President }.I r. Llarry Gilmore Secretarv 3. ' iss Marjorie Kunkle Treasurer }ilr. Donald Sheldon Student [Manager ]Mr. Alan Parsell The Athletic Association grew until it finallv consisted of fiftv or more members. As the basket ball season was at hand, another meeting was soon called for the purpose of securing the College gymnasium. A committee was appointed for the purpose. The T. S. C. gA mnasium was rented and practice began. After some training, the first team was selected and played its opening game with All:)ion. Xot being accustomed to such a slippery flooj- as tiie . lbion gymnasium had, they could not play l( any advantage. Besides, it was the first game for the A. H. S. team, ?nd none of its memljers had ■practiced any during the- pre dous year. Althcugh Angola did not win, th.e game proved to be an interesting and " slij pery " " one. At tlie end of the first semester, some of the members did not have the standard grades nece ' a;y 1o permit their staving on the team. This lueant that no more inter-SLdiolastic games could be played, as there were not enough players in ])raetice t( fill the vacancies. However, the practice was continued at the gymnasium. At the end of the school year every one thought that we had had a -ery profitable ai-id cnje vable season of basket ball practice. Tennis This year the first tennis court was brilt en the school grounds by the A. H. S. boys. Needless to ray tennis was a ]:( ])ular game with everybody. Outside of school hours, hen tlie weather ])ermitte(l, the courts w ere alive with enthusiastic ]dayers. Many good games were enjoyed. When the tennis season closed it was with deep regret that the nets were taken down and the rackets and l)alls were laid aside. HEARD IN THE HALLS A have been constantly reminded that the halls are no place to carry on c, conversation, bnt where is there an A. H. S. student who can refrain from talking? Members of the S])ectator Staff have heard, amons; other things: That Stanley Castell really looked at a girl this semester; that Mr, Letts thinks some of joining the Odd Fellows ; that Eber Jeffrey broke only two beakers, a graduate and four test tulles in the experiment last week; that Hale Miller expects to put on long trousers soon ; that if all the sleep lost on bob-load parties could be collected. Rip ' an Winkle might return and pull off another double decade snooze ; that Lee Hirsch expects to become an as- sociate member of the Class of 1914; that if the disinfectant (sheep-dip) used in the school house is as good a germicide as the odor indicates, all germs are a thing of the past; that the girls taking manual training have learned the dift ' erence between a hammer and a saw ; that the Assembly room floor should take the Keeley cure ; that Lois Redding and Sam Brooks occasionally chew gum ; that the School Board is thinking of buying electric fans to keep the ice in the radiators from thawing next winter; that Ruth Masters wears hair ribbons; that Augustine Williamson visits school once in a while; that George Hendry, under the instruction of Miss Powell, is learning to keep step to the music from the " Baby Grand ; " that ] Ir.

Although the High School has no literary organization, considerable literary talent has been displayed this year. It was our desire to revive the former custom of giving programs at regular intervals, at the High School, but on account of the special work involved in putting out a Spectator, the plan was abandoned. However, we hope that some form of literary work will find a permanent place in the school curriculum. The High School gave excellent programs at Thanksgiving and Christ- mas, which were held in the Assembly room. On February 13th, a patriotic entertainment was given by the High School and Grades, at the Opera House. Two cantatas entitled, " A Aleeting of Nations, " and " Our Flag, ' ' and an operetta entitled, " The Origin of Our Mag, " were given. An excel- lent feature of the program was a flag drill by the students of the Seventh and Eighth grades. The program was under the able supervision of Miss Steva, our director in music, assisted by Gertrude Ingalls at the piano. The proceeds, which were about ninety dollars, will go to the library fund. MUSIC Since the ideals of education have risen to the height that calls for the development of the whole individual, any course of study that ignores or neglects the emotional life of the child, is seriously defective. No one can dcnv that the emotions do form a large factor in determining the conduct of man; and that unless the emotions are properly directed they become a damaging- force in society. It is only when the emotions are centralized into pure sentiments that they become positive forces for good. lusic has that power of centralization of emotions about pure sentiments, for which reason it naturally becomes a fundamental part of a course of study. In the ' High School the work in lusic is fitted to the different stages of advancement of the students. To those who have never pursued a sys- tematic study of music in the grades, an elementary course comprised of the rudiments is planned and required. In addition two other courses are given, one in fundamentals, the other in chorus work. Admission to the chorus work presupposes ability to read music readily. For studying the master- pieces from an interpretative point of view and for developing an apprecia- tion for them, a A ictrola has been added to the department. ®l|r Sobbrrs By St. Clair ' anAuken, ' l8. On a bright summer ' s afternocm in the year of 19 — , two boys, Andy and Billy Wildwood, aged sixteen and thirteen respectively, were walking to- ward their home in Fairview, Mass. The two brothers had been to the town of CenterA ' ille to see a large circus which was exhibiting there that day. On account of the small size of Fairview, amusements of this kind never visited it. so when the boys had seen the advertisements in the Centerville paper, and the lurid posters, they decided to see that show at any cost. So on the day of the event, they got up early, and after a hasty breakfast, started on their walk to the town of Centerville. for the Wildwoods did not own a horse. They arrived there in time to see the parade, and in the afternoon they went to see the show- After it was oe ■r at fi e o ' clock they started to walk home, and here we will now leave them to take up another part of the story. Afr. A ' il(lwood, the boys ' father, was the cashier in the only bank that Fairview had. At four o ' clock he started to walk home as was his custom, stopping at the postoflice to get his mail. He received one letter which he opened and read. The writing, which was disguised, ran thus: ' Tf you will come to the old log house on the island in the haunted swamp you will learn something that will interest you. ' ' Signed, ' " A FRIEND. " Interested and puzzled, he went home, changed his coat, and told his wife that he was going for a walk, llien he walked swiftly to the spot men- tioned which was called " the haunted swamp " by the natives because of the murders on this road which ran through a swamp. Mr. Wildwood made his way along a rc ad that was overgrown with grass, on account of its desertion, till he came to an island of solid ground on which stood a vine covered log house. This log house had belonged to a miser who owned the land and who had been murdered and robbed manv years before. It was a very dreary and lonely spot, but Mr. Wildwood walked up to the door and knocked. At that moment a large man jumped from behind a tree and grabbed Mr. Wildwood by the arms. Instantly more men came from the cabin and grabbed him and dragged him into it. " Search him, " said a man with a large beard. They did this and in one of his coat pockets, found a note book, which he had forgotten he had. He had not worn the coat since he had obtained his position in the bank. He had then written down the combination to the safe but had forgotten about it. " Give that here, " the man with the beard demanded. He opened it and found on a page the thing which he sought, the combination! " Here it is! " the man shouted. " It will save us a lot of trouble, to get it so easily, " he said. ' AMiat does this mean? " angrily demanded Mr. Wildwood. " It means, " said the man, that we are going to borrow all the money that the Fairview bank has on hand and without interest. " " Do you mean that you are going to rob the Fairview bank? ' ' said Mr. Wildwood. " It does, and vou are saving us the trouble of blowing off the safe doots bv giving us the combination, " ' replied the leader. Returning to the two boys, we find that in an hour ' s time they had traveled three miles and were at the forks of the road where the new road branches off from the old haunted road. " Let us go through the old haunted swamp, " said Andy to Billy. " We will save a mile or two if we do, " was liilly ' s repl} ' . At this they started down the left fork of the road that led through the haunted swamp. This swamp was about one and one-half miles in diameter and the island was about rn the center of the swamp. The swamp was a very wet one, water actually covering most of the land so the small plat of dry land was called " the island. " by the natives. The road the boys vv-ere walk— ing on was a corduroy and the water had, in places, washed most of the dirt off the logs, hence it was very rough traveling. }.Iany times the boys stum- bled, because it was now getting dark. They finally began talking about the mystery of the swamp, and Andy said : " They say in the village that people wdio are here after dark can hear the men that killed the old miser, riding on this road. " " Nonsense, " replied Billy, who did riot like the subject that his brother had brought up. Billy ' s contempt for ghosts was soon to be tested, for as they neared the old log house they heard the sounds of galloping horses. In ordinary life,. Andy and Billy were brave enough but when they were concerned with things supernatural they were like the woman who said: " I do not believe in ghosts of course, but I am dreadfully afraid of them. " As the sound grew nearer,. the boys went behind a neglected hedge to wait. Returning to Mr. Wildwood : Soon after the robbers had received the combination to the safe, the bearded man went over to an old washstand and did something to his beard. He then turned around, with the beard 1:1 hi hand and as his face came into the circle of light, Mr. Wildwood gave a cr ' that brought all the gang to their feet. " Jim! " he cried in tone of voice that was sad yet joyous. " I see that you recognize me, " he said with a smile. To make this part of the story clearer, we will tell of Mr. A ' ildwnod ' s early life. T his man that he called Jim was a twin brother of his. Thev w ere born and reared in Maine till they reached the age of sixteen. Then Jim, who was an adventure-loving boy, was expelled from school. Their father wdio w ' as a Puritan in religion and manner, at this seeming disgrace, drove the boy from home. As his home town was an Atlantic seaport, Jim shipped on a vessel bound for the West Indies. After this his brother heard no more of him until the Spanish-American war. Among the list of dead in an im- portant battle was the name of James Wildwood, so the family gave him np until the moment he revealed himself to his brother. As Mr. Wildwood had been released on his promise not to try to escape, lie arose and embraced his brother with true afifection. " I thoup ht you were killed in the battle of . " he said. " I was only wounded, but as the reports w ere often mixed, I was put down for dead. " he said. " I suppose the family mourned me for dead, but I don ' t suppose that father wasted many tears over me, " he said with a touch of his boyish manner. In a few minutes Tr. AVildwood spoke again. " This is certainly too bad. As soon as vou rob the bank and set me free, I shall have to give evidence that will convict you. " " Xot so, mv dear brother; as soon as we rob the Fairview bank we are all going to take a ride to Canada, and you are going with us and have a share of the loot. " " But think of my family, my reputation, and my disgrace, " said Air. Wild wood. ' Too bad, too bad ; but it is the decree of fate, " grimly returned his •brother. Then Jim sent the men after the horses, and it was their return that the boys heard. From their hiding place the boys saw a man come from the cabin with a lantern in his hand. In unison the boys gasped, " Father, " for the man with the lantern in his hand was surely their father, but why he was there was more than the boys could imagine. Speaking to one of the men, he said zsomething in a language the boys had never heard. " Negro et bianco, " the man replied. (The Spanish for black and wdiite, ' which was the color of the horse that Air. Wildwood was to ride.) " All right, we go at twelve, " the man with the lantern said. ' T did not know that father could speak any foreign language except his school German, " said Andy. " What he can be doing here with this gang gets me, " replied Billy. As soon as the men had gone into the cabin, the boys crawled out from ttheir hiding place and started to run home. When they reached there they were met by their mother who anxiously asked them about their father. Then they told her all that they had seen. " Never, " she said. " He would never desert his family and stoop to as- sociate with such men. " " It is very mysterious, " said Andy. " Father never had any relatives that looked like him that I know of. " " That is true, " his mother replied. Although the boys tried hard to get their mother to go to bed, she in- sisted on staying up through the night. After the day ' s fun and their long ■walk, the boys were very tired, so they retired for the night. At the log cabin, Air. Wildwood pleaded long and earnestly with his brother to abandon the robbery, but to no avail. At twelve o ' clock after a simple lunch, the men tied Air. Wildwood to a couch and rode off. He tried to remove the cords but to no purpose. After a time, that seemed hours to him, the robbers returned and has- tily untied him. They made him walk out of the cabin to a horse upon which they tied him. and then they all rode off. They took many side roads ta keep from going through the towns, and after several hours riding, Jim said that they had crossed the state line over into New Hampshire. As the eastern sky began to be tinged with gray, they turned into ac large woods, and after riding into it for some distance they made a camp_ They then tied Mr. Wildwood securely, fed their horses and went to sleep. The next morning in Fairview, the boys arose early and went to the log house but found no sign of their father. A ' hen they returned home the whole town was talking about the bank robbery. The boys went to the bank president, who was a kind man and a great friend of Mr. Wildwood, and told their story in a straightforward manner. The banker told them it seem- ed impossible that their father would do a thing like that and that he might- be the victim of a plot. There was a great hue and cry about the robbery; detectives were - summoned and a description of the men the boys had seen, was printed and sent all over the New England states. The enemies of the family, of course, . sneered at the idea that Mr. Wildwood was not the robber chief, but theit " friends were all very sorry and shook their heads. One friend of the family offered help in a very substantial way. His name was Joe Lockwood, a very clever man and a hunter. He told the boys t hat the robbers would probably go to Canada and by going on the only road that ran north they would stand some chance of finding them. The boys went to the kind banker and told him of Joe ' s plan, and he thought that it was reasonable and offered to furnish help for the trip. About dark the men in the camp arose and cooked a meal. I ' or the ' - first time Jim had a chance to look at the booty. He found several packages- of bills of large denomination and many small ones. In two sacks were.: coins, the whole amounting to about $18,000. " Not as big a haul as we had in ■ . Ohio, " said one of the merr. " No, but it will last you until you can get back to New York, " was Jim ' s- reply. " As for me I am going to set up in business and reform, " he said. Then as evening came on, they all got on their horses and moved north- ward, on to Canada. In the afternoon of the day the robbery had been discovered, the boys Joe, the constable of Fairview, and a detective drove out of Fairview in the banker ' s automobile. About four o ' clock they reached the little town of — ■ , New Hampshire. Here they stopped for Joe said that the robbers- would keep under cover in the day time. As they were going into the small general store to get some crackers- and cheese for their lunch they heard one of the men, who are always hang- ing around a store, say to a friend : " Something funny happened down our way last night. One of my horses took sick and as I was going to the bant with some medicine I heard some horses trotting, and after I waited a: minute I saw six men riding horseback, go lickety-split past our place. The funny part of it is why six men were riding on that lonely road after tw o o ' clock at night. " " Yep, it is funny, " said another, " don ' t look good to me. " The partv all stopped and listened to this with great interest. Then the detective spoke to the man : " Say, do you know that the Fairview bank was robbed last night? " This brought all the loungers to their feet. " What! " they all said in chorus. " Like as not it was them that I saw last night, " said the man. " Likelv it was, " replied the detective. " There ' s a reward of five hur.- dred dollars out for the capture of the gang. We were wondering if we could get any help to capture them, if need be. " T will for one, " shouted the man who had first spoken. ' T will, too, " yelled the other man. ' ' Have you two any firearms? " incpiired the detective. They both answered in the affirmative, and other arrangements were made. As soon as it was dark, the robbers and Mr. Wildwood rode oft. His horse was led by a strap which another man held. They would have gone many miles farther on that night if one of the horses had not become lame, and of course, the party had to stop to examine -the horse ' s foot. It was found that one of its shoes had become loose and a small stone had lodged under the shoe. Some time was lost in trying to dislodge the stone and fix the shoe, during which Jim smoked a cigar, fumed and swore at the luck that compelled the loss of so much time. fter considerable toil, the horse ' s fcjot was in a condition to travel, and the party rode ofif. Our pursuing party, which now numbered seven, got into the automo- bile, and as evening grew near, rode ofif at high speed. After they had passed the house in which the man who had seen the robbers, lived, they came to a crossroads. Joe got out of the automobile and looked at the dust in the road. " They took the right fork, because I can see the horses ' track? in the dust, " was his comment. Then they lighted one of their lamps and rode on. As they were speed- ing along, Joe yelled, " W ' hoa, quick ! " and the detective stopped the machine with a lurch. Joe jumped out and ran to the front of the machine and with the aid of a flashlight examined the road with great interest. " I guess we won ' t have to go much farther, " he said. ' ' WHiy not? " incpured the party. " Because, " said Joe, " I can see that they had to stop and fix a hoise- slioe. It must have taken some time, because some one smoked a cigar and left the ashes scattered around. " " Quite a Sherlock Holmes, " said the detective with a laugh. " I ain ' t trapped and hunted twenty years for nothin ' , " replied the clever old hunter. " And say, we had better put out that lamp because you can see it a mile and those fellows ain ' t goin ' to stand still and let us ride right up to them, " he continued. " A wise statement, " said the detective with a smile. " You certainly missed your calling. " Following Joe ' s advice, they extinguished the lamp and started on, slowly at first for fear of striking something in the dark. After a time thev became accustomed to the darkness, and put on more speed, when Joe. who sat on the front seat beside the driver, suddenly told him to slow down. " A ' hat is it? " inquired the detective. " I think I heard horses, " replied old Joe. The detective stopped the machine and listened. " Sure enough, " he said, " I can hear them, too. " Then our party " sat up and took notice, " for they could hear, instead of retreating sounds, sounds that came nearer. The explanation for this was that the escaping party started in such haste after the adventure with th.e horse that Jim had lost one of the money bags which was contained in a large leather bag tied to his saddle. The flap on the bag had been un- fastened by the movements of the horse and one bag of bills was lost. " We will not go any farther till we get that bag back if we never get to Canada. " he said. " That top bag had $2,000 in it, " he continued, so the party went back toward the spot where it had been lost. " ' e will have to get this auto out o f sight before they come, ' said Andy- As the country through which they were passing was not very well farmed, there were not many fences along the road. It w as an easy thing to back the automobile into the woods which lined the road. They all got out of the machine and taking their firearms, separated. The farmer, Jos and Andy went to the opposite side of the road, and the detective, the other farmer and Billy stayed on the side of the road that the machine was on. The constable went out into the middle of the road with a flashlight and a revolver. The detective also had a flashlight and a revolver ; the rest of the men had rifles. They did not have to wait long because Jim and his party were riding fast. As they approached, the constable uttered a shrill whistle. " What ' s that? " yelled Jim. Only one in his party knew what it was. He had on an- other occasion been on a hunting expedition and had heard the constable whistle, the same as this time. The horses moved a few steps farther on and then the pursuing party all yelled, " Hands up ! " as loudly as they could, and the flashlights were thrown on the horsemen. The woods magnified the sound many times and Jim ' s party thought there were seventy men instead of seven commanding them to throw up their hands. As the flashlights were not thrown on until the party surrendered, the robbers saw their mistake too late to rectify it. After handcuffing the gang, the detective took them in the auto to Centerville. Here they were sen- tenced to five years in the penitentiary. Jim got out in four years as the result of good behavior. The horses were sold and the money given to Jim when he was free. He went West, homesteaded a claim and now owns the land. Soon after the adventure, Ir. Wildwood was appointed president of the bank. The boys are still living and working in Fairview, and here we will leave them in their prosperity. ®I| pmt rr rljonla of Angnk By A. W. LONG The real wealth of Ano ola does not consist entirely in the railroads centering here — in the number of pounds of beef, pork and poultry shipped to eastern markets ; in her great department stores, filled with every thing that heart could wish or money buy ; nor in the miles of paved streets lined with magnificent buildings — but rather in the intelligence of her citizens and in the general diffusion of useful knowledge. In the latter things, Angola is. rich indeed ! ' ' For can the wiles of Art, the grasp of Power. Snatch the rich relics of a well spent hour. These — when the trembling spirit takes its flight — Pour round its path a stream of livi-ng light. " With imcovered head I go back in memory to the sturdy pioneers of Angola, to whose early struggles and devotion to the cause of education wc owe the privileges we now enjoy — to the devoted men and women who fairly worked their finger nails oft " , in order to secure to their children the discipline of mind which they had, in many cases, been deprived of by force of circumstances. All honor to those heroic pioneers who made these things, possible to the present generation. From the schools which their patient foresight established have gone forth into the world about us, men and Momen, so well trained and disciplined that they have become well known state wide, nation wide and even world wide ! So inadequate were the pub- lic funds to equip the needed schools that the pioneers eagerly subscribed and paid for private or " select " schools as they were generallv called, located in various public or private buildings, viz: the Eagle hotel; in the " Buck- eye " building where the Work block now stands ; in the Darrah home on West Maumee street : in the house where Will Elston now lives ; in a house on the Felah Parish lot, and in the old Ben l)rown building on the north side of the public square where now stands the Williamson Hardware store. The first public school building was a typical log structure on the spot where the Joseph Sowle residence now stands, erected in 1840. But the- ] nblic school building of that time, around which most memories cluster — v ' hich so many of the aged people of Angola kindly remember as their only " Alma Mater " — was a frame structure built about 1853, on the top of the- hill which has since been graded down and carted away to accommodate the building used by the Angola Wood Manufacturing Co.. and other struc- tures, northwest of the public square. In the foregoing public and private schools, the boys and girls of the period were educated. Here taught with more or less patience and varying success, Miss Lucy Jackson. Miss Hendry., (a sister of A. W. Hendry.) Miss McKinstre, Miss Faxton, the Misses Maria, Sophia and Cynthia Kitridge, Miss Spaulding, ]Mrs. Asa Tinker, Miss Felah Parish, Miss Carl, Miss Woodworth, Mr. Blake. Mr. Eagles. Fredrick Ncwbauer, Johnathan Dudley. Lyman Heath, (afterward County Auditor,) Addison lilass, benjamin Saylor, J. Wesley Thomas, James Scoville and ntJiers whose names and ser -ices l a ■e l)een forgotten. In this little, old, weather-beaten and boy-battered " school honse on the hill " was born our splendid graded system of schools! The building- fronted to the southward, r.nd at the north end an addition was built in i860 to accommodate the little " Lots " of the first " Primary Department " of the Angola schools. J. Wesley Thomas was teaching the " High school. " and INIiss Cynthia Kitridge the I ' rimary when the building burned in February, 1864. Evans lathews, sent out after wood to replenish the big box stove, discovered that the roof as on fire and gave the alarm. Those boys and girls had never been taught a " Fire Drill. " They simply " got out " through windows and doors and no one was hurt. Miss May Weicht, a child of five years, forgot, in her haste, a dear little red woolen bonnet and when the building was about ready to collapse, dashed back into the flames and rescued it. No " Siren ' shrieked its " wild alarm " and no magnificent fire brigade would have re- sponded if it had, but the whole town turned out with brimming pails of water and valiently guarded the Bob Squiers livery barn across the street. And now I come to (for me) the pleasant part of this sketch — the visits I iiave enjoyed with, and the stories told me by, the " boys and girls " of that period. Most of those fun loving boys are now found in the ranks of our " old soldier boys, " the heroes of man} ' - a bloody battle for the Union. A few ' of the girls still live as the aged mothers of a rapidly growing city. All for- get, for a moment, the roar of battle and the sorrows and trials of life and ' Aithi kindly faces wreathed in smiles or chuckling with the joy of memory they recount to me the " good times " they had in those pioneer schools of Angola. Alost of the incidents related to me w ere luminous and pleasant ill character, but some, alas! were tragic, for some of those pioneer teachers evidently believed with " Bill Jones " of the " Hoosier Schoolmaster, " that " Lickin ' and Larnin ' go together. " One of these teachers, forwearned con- cerning the husky bad boys of the school, was seen approaching the school house on the morning of the first session of a certain term with a bundle of whips under one arm and a few books under the other. " Mister, " inquired a philosophic resident of the neighborhood, " do ye ' low to tote them gads into that school? " " Certainly. " responded the teacher, " and I shall use them, too, if necessary. " " Wall, stranger, ye ' ll last about as long as a snow ball in H ! I know them boys and gals, " the old resident replied. The prediction was verified. That bundle of wdiips became a standing challenge to the boys of the school and were soon w orn out. Then a large rawhide took their place, coiled up like a snake on the teacher ' s desk when not in action. During the afternoon recess of the first day of its appearance it was stolen. And by a girl pupil ! Then the teacher delivered a stern ultimatum. " Every pupil in the school will receive a whipping, on general principles, unless the culprit is exposed or the whip returned by tomorrow morning! " It was returned within the time limit, but was cut into pieces one inch in length by James Carpenter and Oscar Carver. Then war began at once, and the big boys, led by Dell Day, drove the teacher from the room, but he locked the door from the outside and w ent after help, determined to con- ([uer or die. At Ed Freygang ' s suggestion the imprisoned pupils threw up or broke out the windows and fled to the protection of " Home and Mother. " A " !ien the irate teacher returned w ith his " posse " there was no one left to lick. (leorge Young was easily his mother ' s favorite boy, and while a mus- cular teacher was giving George a severe " scutching " for some misde- nicauor, James Weaver sprang out of an open window and notified Mrs. " ■nmg. It took her but a moment to reach the school house and snatching the whip from the teacher ' s hand she laid it about his legs in a way that iiidicated both faith and practice. Another teacher with more muscle thari sense, iDCcoming incensed at some mischievous act of fat, rosy-cheeked, good natured Ed Fitch, caught the lad up in his brawny arms and threw him up to the ceiling of the room several times, allowing him to fall sprawling to the floor each time, bruising the boy badly. lUit the father of the boy, one of the most powerful men in town, rolled uj) his sleeves and left his work lor.g enough to prove himself als o an adept in the new game of " pitch and loss " to the complete discomfiture of the schoolmaster! Orville Carver, the first mayor of Angola, naively confesses to a severe application of the ruler io Geo. Orton, Carl Gale and himself bv teacher Addison Blass, because of imperfect lessons, and Heman Carpenter is still chuckling about a pocket- ful of hollow reeds gathered down northeast of the square near the flowing ])rings, fifty years ago, and distributed among the pupils of James Scovilie. Then, when the teacher ' s attention was drawn elsewhere, with unerring aim and a quick impulse of breath through these improvised air guns, the teacher received a " spat " of still warm and moist paperwad on some part of his face. The best marksmen could hit the side of his nose. Happy, lOiicking, care free, fun loving boys and girls, God bless them, for there could be no school without them, and the only reason that we have better boys and girls now in our public schools, lies in the fact that teachers are learning how to appeal to the better natures of the lads and lassies in their charge and thereby win the respect and affection of their pupils. In the year 1802, George W. McConnell, A. AW Hendry and Thos. B. Morse — three ol the most public-spirited men that Angola has ever known — secured the ser vices of John W. Cowen, a graduate of Waynesburg College, Pennsyh ' ania, and ? iiss Mary A. Cooley, graduate of Oberlin College, and organized a sciiool in the old " Bee Hive " building which stood on the spot where now we have the Hendry Hotel, and called it the " Union Seminary. " iM ' om this ]i int on there has been a steady advance in the excellence of our public schools, and they will now compare very favorablv — teachers, pupils, build- ings and equipment — with any in the state. A urprtB EBER JEFFERY. ' 14 " ■A ' ell. Chuck, I enjoy this sort of life and I don ' t suppose I will change my manner for some little time. But say, by the way, Old Man, we ' ve be lb stuck right here in town, drudging away all summer, and I propose that we seek some little diversion before we become a pair of physical wrecks and have to he shipped to the mountains to spend the winter in a freeze-out shack. " " I rather approve of your suggestion, although I have no apprehen- sion of becoming an invalid inside of the next few weeks. " This conversation took place between two young men walking along a main thoroughfare of Chicago, one day late in the summer of 1906. The previous conversation had been a discussion as to wdiether or not the young nian, who speaks first in the story, should turn away from the sordid ] k ' asures afforded him by a life of moderate dissipation. This young man. known to his friends as Cap. was Casper Sebright, a University graduate of the class of ' 04. He was now the head office man of a large wholesale firm, and for his services received a very good salary which was spent very largely for unseemly amusements and clothes. Often he was tempted to s])end his time at the roidette wheels of the city ' s gambling resorts, or stake his all on a favorite at the races. But usually he had just enough sense to " ithstand these temptations. He appeared to be a very attractive young man. The other man. Gordon Young, by name, but familiarly known as " Chuck. " was inclined to be slightly more conservative than his friend, al- though he was just as enthusiastic a lover of good sport. He also held a lucrative position as a department superintendent in a large manufacturing establishment. " I have an idea. " exclaimed Cap as the conversation continued. ' I ' xe got a good friend who is out West now wdio is the best dopester on the scrap game or base ball in the country. His tips and inside dope never fail. 1 propose that we go to Goldfield next week and accept the ' kid ' s " judgment as gospel and accordingly place most of our surplus cash on the big scrap. " " Xow. see here Cap. you know I never was much of a hand at the betting game, and it ' s too late to start in now . " " Better late than never. " interrupte l Sebright. " But you know that I always was the unluckiest chap alive. " " That kind of luck is impossible in this case because the Kid is right on the ground at the training quarters every day and is able to form uner- ring conclusions as to the condition of both men. ' e can relv with absolute certainty upon what he tells us. Xow don ' t say. ' where is the monev coni- ing from? ' because I know what an old miser you are: and Em just lucky enough to have received last week a himk of cash for insurance on a little place in the country for which Dad gave me the deed when I was a kid. A shon time ago a couple of toughs did me a favor by setting tire to it. " In the faee of these eonvineing arguments it was decided that these two men should spend their vacation on a trip to Goldfield, Nevada, to see Joe Gans defend his lightweight title against the onslaught of Battling Nelson. Thev were to arrive in Goldfield on the day of the big battle. " Idiere he is now! Come here. Spi ke, and meet my friend, known in the higher circles by a more stately title, but to us as ' Chuck. " Chuck this is the " Kid. " Now out with the dope. Spike, and we ' ll go to the nearest pool room and place all we have but the admission fee, on the man yon name. " The person whom Cap thus addressed as Spike was a small, weil- dressed, sporty-looking man. He appeared to be younger than he was. His. face was rather boyish and the big, blue eyes had a rather innocent look. From under his cap slunved a mass of wavy brown hair. In general his appearance was not that of the usual ringside or race track " swdpe. " " IJoys, " he replied, " I don ' t like to say it, " but you have got to bet on the colored man if you want to win. I ' ve watched him a long time and he ' s got a defense that the ' boring in ' tactics of the Dane can never batter down. Besides, the man doesn ' t live that can stand up long against that terrible jaw-breakin ' wallop or kidney punch of his. " A rather discouraged trio of young men sat at the ringside at the close of the twenty-sixth round. Time and again the clever negro had landed that famous jaw-breaker, but the Durable Dane always came back the ag- gressor. Gans had abandoned his wonderful defense and was slugijing it out with the Battler. This disheartened the Chicago men, for it w as well known throughout sporting circles that no man could last long in a slug- ging match with the Hegewisch lad. At last, after hours of fierce fighting, in that far-famed forty-second round. Nelson landed just below the belt a. terrific body ])unch and the negro sank slowly to the mat. The gallant little Battler hung his head and crawled slowlv through the ropes, a loser oii a foul. The next morning on an east-bound train. Cap said to his friend:, " Well, cheer up. did man; Aou ' ve seen a great fight and w ' on a little mone_ ' . AX ' e ' ve not been to a funeral. " " Cap, I was just thinking what we are doing. The Avay we spend our time and monev renders us of no use. AA don ' t amount to anvthingf and — " " Well, now, " retorted Cap, " don ' t moralize. AVe may be in need of a sermon l)ut 1 don ' t believe you ' re in condition to deliver it. " " I ' m not going to ])reach but I am going to tell you how we can pull off a deal and go into business with success just running after us. " I he subject of money interested young Sebright, and he began to. listen attentively. " lUit, " continued Gordon, " it can never catch us if we keep chasing- cigarettes, booze and the fighting game- We hardly realize without thought on the matter that we should be of value to the world, but surely there is something- ])etter in us than continuous association with booze — fighterS; gamblers and the class of people that usually attend such events as we have just witnessed. You say, ' Oh, they are all good fellows, ' but how would you like to take one of these associates, such as this Spike, home with you to your sister ' s party and have him accompany her regularly to the ball room -or the theatre? " Oh ! So it ' s Irene that you ' re worrying about. I thought you must have a lady on your mind. Well, I ' ll admit, Gord, that I wouldn ' t feel ex- actly happy if that little girl were in the parlor with the Kid. No, Chuck, I guess he ' s not exactly our kind and I guess he probably won ' t ruin your •chances with Irene, and yet . " " No. " said a voice from behind, " I ' m not your kind, but what I have to say I tell a fellow to his face. " Spike stepped in iront of the two aston- ished 3 ' oung men, anger and emotion showing on his usually expressionless face. " Fellows, I w as going to get sore. " he said hesitatingly, " but I guess you ' re right. I suppose I ain ' t exactly your kind. But I once had a father and mother, a sister and a start towards an education. But father and I had ■a disagreement about the class of social affairs I attended. We quarreled: I left home and have never returned. The first job I had was helping the ground keeper over at the West Side ball park. I became pretty well posted on the game, seeing both games and practice, and I also got a pretty goo:! line on all of the players. I was then able to pick up a little change by betting and advising others how to bet. Using my knowledge of players and a little judgment, things usually came my way. There came to be many sporting men among my friends. In fact it was not long until most ■of my associates were of this class. Through their influence I became in- terested in the fight game that fall. I followed this pretty closely and soon began to make a little money in the same way I did at the ball park. Again, through the influence of friends. I became an ardent follower of the racing game. You see I ' ve secured my money always by gambling. But, boys. I ' m done. All you won yesterday and all I won was won on a fluke. The little Dane had the colored gent out-fought and put him away with that last punch, which was misjudged and landed a trifle low. I ' ve had my luck g-o against me and lose for me, but to win on a fluke is a bad sign. It shows poor judgment. As you say. I can ' t go among respectable people of a higher class and hold up my head because of my profession if my occupa- tion may be known by that term. I reckon I ' ll try to make different use of the money I have now. I believe I can do something else. " The Kid arose and left the two young men alone again. " That Spike. " said Sebright, " will make something of himself yet. A man that ' s got the stuiif in him to succeed as a gambler, can succeed in hon- orable business if he applies himself. I tell you that Kid has ability. 1 wish I knew his name. I don ' t suppose he knows mine, though. But you watch and some time you ' ll hear of him again. " Chuck laughed and said: " There ' s just about one in ten thousand of those fellows that ever reforms. ' ' " Well, then. Spike is just that one of the ten thousand, for when iie says he ' ll do a thing, he -will do il. But how about that plan of yours for making money? " " I figure just this wav. Cap. If I could get into some substantial busi- ness for myself I could perhaps make a little more money and possibly if I were not where that pretty sister of yours saw me so often she would tliink of me in a more serious light. Xow I know of a first-class hardware in a small down-state town that can be bought right. There is already a good business there and you know that the public patronizes young people in preference to the old timers, if the management is good. People here wi:) sav we ' re too young for business, but I don ' t see how we will improve our business al)ilities by sticking aroung here and blowing our salaries for a few more years. " " If vou ' re sure that this is a good thing and money in it. I ' m on. I ' d like to show the old folks I ' ve got some ambition, anyway. " " Good thing! " exclaimed Gordon. " Why it ' s just like getting money frv m home " " When they don ' t send it, " Cap added. " But I guess the money might as well go into the hardware as into the tailors ' and saloon-keepers ' pockets. ' ] ' " our years had passed. The two young men had prospered in the hard- ware business, which had l een enlarged and improved since it became the firm of Young iS: Sebright. Although Gordon had failed to make his de- sii ' ed serious impression upon liss Sebright, he was still an intimate fnend of the family. A steady correspondence was carried on between Young an ' d. Sebright and the family in Chicago. One afternoon in June, Kjfc. Casper said to his partner, " Chuck, I re- cened a letter irom my mother this morning and she has news for us. Irene is to be nnarried next A ' ednesday . " " We ' ; I can ' t help it, " interrupted Gordon, soberly. Cap laughed and continued: " It ' s to be a quiet little wedding at our home: but acc( idling to the import of the letter an event to which we are absolutely essential. Something indefinite but terrible will happen to me if I do not l)ring you home with me next Tuesday night. " Young thought it was not a good plan for both of them to leave the Inisiness at one time, but after some urging he said: " Rather than lose my ])artner or have him permanently disabled, I suppose I had better go, but it ' s mighty poor business policy. By the way, who ' s to be the bridegroom? " " O, the same fellow she ' s been corresponding with for the last year. He ' s the new partner to the Coombs Kilrain Company, wholesalers of heavy hardware, of whom we buy all of our iron and steel. The last time I was up to the city, ' George ' was the only subject of Irene ' s conversation. T wanted to meet him but my train left before he could possibly get arounri. Probably he ' s a young ' swell ' whose ' papa " has bought and runs for him a share in a business while he loafs at the club or takes exercise in the park. " This was spoken in the usual attitude of brothers wdio, when it comes to marriage, think that no fellow in the world is good enough for their respective sisters. A lien Gordon and his friend arri " ed in the city Tuesday nii ht. Casper said: " Mother told me Kilrain ' s address. Let ' s look him up, approacl him from a business standpoint and find out what sort of a chap he is. " " All rig ht. " Chuck answered, " I should like to see him before tomorrow anywa} ' . " Kilrain ' s address was found at a small but respectable hotel. As the two men entered the office a familiar face caught Cap ' s eve and he rushed across the room and shook hands with a rather young looking man with big blue e} " es and brown wavv hair. " Well, how ' s the (_)ld Timer anyway? " exclaimed Chuck as he al ' o came up. " Doing fine. " answered the young man, " but perhaps changed a little along tlie line of business since we last met. " " Xow, see here Spike, you don ' t mean to hand it to us that you ' ve gone to work? " said Cap. ■ ' Yes, fellows, I ' ll have to admit it. I ' m actually in business: that, is I ' m in partnership with a fellow in a small wholesale house. " " Why don ' t you give us your card and we ' ll drop in tomorrow and have a little talk, " said Chuck. " Well, the truth is, boys, I have a little engagement outside of business that will require most of my time tomorrow but here ' s our business card Drop in some other time. " Cap read with bewildering astonishment: . COOMBS KILRAIX, ' holesalers of Heavy Hardware, St., Chicago. THE A. H. S. AS A SOCIAL CENTER Progressive communities are opening their school houses for social ac- tivities, thus giving parents and pupils of all classes an opportunity to meet on a common level. It has proved so successful in both city and countrAr ihat it might be well worth trying in Angola. The school building belong-? to the people who are taxed for its maintenance. A ' hv are they not entitled T3 use it for other than school purposes? The past year school has Ijeen held for one hundred eighty days of six hours each, and the remaining one hundred eighty-five days of the three hun- dred sixty-five it has been idle. Why not open the door evenings and pro- vide a profitable and pleasant entertainment for young and old? Whv nor make the school house, under the direction of chaperons, more attractive than the streets? AA ' hy not make it a social center that will be as popular i.;s the pool rooms and bowling alley? Why not give the boys and girls of Angola what a little boy in Rochester calls " a party in the school house Vx ' here you can get something for nothing? ' ' " Where there is a will, there i» a way. " Organize, then ways and means may be devised to make at small cost the Angola High School a delightful social center. One cold mornino- early in March, all was (jniet and peaceful in the As- :scnd)]y room. Every one was in deep thought over lessons, and even the notes had ceased to buzz around. A faint stir was heard in the lower caverns, then a door-slam, followed by some one rushing up the creaking stairs. Like a flash the form of a Ts. ' oman appeared. Our blood curdled as she shouted: " Help! A man! A anan! Oh do find me a man! Quick, I must have him!

This class has now been in the school for a period of fonr years and has proven to be one of the most popular and profitable classes. The work is outlined as follows : The first part of the year is given over, to a thorough study of the text, while the last part of the year is devoted to practice work. The workings of the State and National legislatures are also studied. Two lectures are also given by the instructor, explaining the methods of the English Parliament. All class officers are required to either be in this class or to have had the work. One-half of a credit is given upon a successfu ' completion of the course. SOCIETY jp lTTXj This year more than an}- previous year has been one of unusual social pleasure for the whole High School. The Seniors have enjoyed more par- ties than any other class, although the Sophomores have proved that they iiave a vague idea of how to enjoy themselves, and the Freshmen have been .-■triving manfully to keep up the record. The Juniors, however, have alm.ost given up hope on account of lack of sut cient members of the sterner sex. The Freshmen, usually •ery shy, this } ' ear have discarded a consider- able amount of their bashfulness and have entered society to a limited ex- rent. Although they have had but one social function, which was a sleigh- ing partv to the home of Robert Cole, we hope the}- have had enough en- joyment to make their first year in H. S. one never to be forgotten. The Sophomores, however, have proved themselves one of our promi- nent societv classes. Late in the fall, Gertrude Ingalls entertained at a 1)onfire party. Later on. Fern Cole was a charming hostess to the class at a farewell party for their classmate, A ' eir Morse, who left for Oklahoma to l)e gone indefinitely. Hallowe ' en was duly celebrated by the Sophs and a few invited friends, when Jeanette Pollock and Lois Redding entertained at a iiiascpierade party at the latter ' s home. The class, not readv to give up their good time for a while, planned a neat surprise on their friend, Mildred Flanselman, at the invitation of her mother. Everyone will remember that evening as one of great enjoyment. The Juniors have been in school long enough to know how mucii so.:ial functions add to their daily life, but on account of having only three bovs in the class, they have had but one party which was at the home of Irs. John Castell. ' e arc in hope that next year a reinforcement of the masculu.iC gender will enter the class and spare them the sorrow of going through thei ' - last year of High School without any social life to make it more pleasant. The Seniors seem to realize how much pleasure a class can get out of s ' diool life Avhen it does not stop at bad weather and poor sleighing. Early in the fall, the class enjoyed a straw ride to the country home of Helen l .umme!. During the winter they had nothing much but sleighing parties. Rose Kohl was a delightful hostess to the class at her home in the country . A ' ( ' are uncertain whether it was the long distance or the good time which nia !e them get home so late (or early). The class with a few invited friends also enjoyed a sleigh ride to Mr. and Mrs. John Smith ' s, near Ashley. This ride vvdl not be forgotten for two reasons: the gran.l time, and the ti];ping o er of the bob when they came home. It was several minutes before the members of the crowd could be located and repla .cd in the bob. Llo d. ' - son was a pleasing host, also, to the class one night during sleighing tim.f " , at his country home near Flint. On this occasion. Prof, and Mrs. George Letts were invited as chaperons. ( )n March 17, the Senior girls proved themselves delightful hostesses to the Senior boys at a Progressive St. Patrick ' s party, which began at the home of Agness Pollock and ended in an enjoyable finale at the home of Zema Crampton. There has been a great number of inter-class parties, at the homes of • hfi ' erent individuals, along with the many distinct class functions. On the wiiole the High School has not lacked social ])leasure, and we hope that the same good s])iiit may jirevail throughout the coming years.
