THE. OAK TREE
On' a mountain top has stood for centuries past,
An oak, with branches moaning to the blast,
And overlooking ,dells and vernal plains
Protected men from heat and Autumn rains.
Beneath the bark so smooth and milky white,
The woodsman seeks the heart with cruel' delight,
No conscious thought has he of doing wrong,
As he cuts the aged oak, so broad and strong,
Around whose spreading base weak vines have clung
Whose branches are with yellow mosses hung,
The ivy o'er the creeping babymine
With gorgeous mantle does the trunk entwine.
A mass of buttercups with hands of gold
Make bright the earth beneath the limbs so old,
And daisies white, that fringed with dainty pink,
Nod, as gradually the breezes sink.
This tree, that overhangs the blushing rose, i
More famous for majestic beauty grows
Each year, as on the lonely mountain wild,
It stands with leafy shade, dame Nature's child.
In March, the meadowlark with joyous song
Cheerfully helps to hurry Spring along,
And spiders' silvry tents upon the grass,
When filled with dew, a fairyland surpass.
The leaves, that green above, and white below,
Give shade, in Autumn fall before the snow-
The twisted branches are with acorns crowned,
Within whose walls the baby oaks are found.
If beauty cannot save the oak tree bough,
Some pleading words may help protect it now.
Must we watch the lifted axe and not defend
The one that is to us a helping friend,
That cheers the world, gives peace and quiet, when we
So tired rest beneath the old oak tree?

The school took one great step forward this year, for it grew one story taller.
This meant a great deal to every student who knew how we needed this im-
provement. The large Assembly Hall is perhaps, the most welcome addition, be-
cause now we are not forced to study in the room in which a recitation is being
conducted. Formerly our building was heated by stoves. which meant that it was
warm only in spots. Now we enjoy a modern heating system, with all the modern

And now come the changes in Student Activity. More school feeling has en-
tered into the life of every student. More interest is taken in Inter lligh School
Athletics. In past years when we were victorious. which really did happen once
in a while, the glory of victory was short lived. Now it is carried on through thc
weeks following, and helps to pave the way for future events- The Inter lligh

GEORGE HASKINGS, GENTLEMAN ADVENTURER
I ln Seven Pictures
The golden October sun was shining warmly down on the dry land. The per-
fume of tlowersand the scented breath of the forest lilled the air. For it was
Indian summer in Humboldt, rich mellow beautiful Indian summer, and all the
country was in its gala attire.
A little schooner, fresh from its long voyage over the ocean, was moored at
its dock at the Eureka Wharf, and was discharging passengers and cargo. Among
the people crowding down the gang-plank was a tall well-built fellow, who had
seen perhaps, some thirty summers. His clean-shaven well-cut face would have
been attractive, had it not been for the eyes, which were very small and close-set,
and were shaded by remarkably heavy eye-brows.
He apparently was one of the few who had planned his distination beforehand,
for without hesitation he made his way to a waiting buckboard and deposited his
luggage. ,He -stood a while eying the passing crowd with shifty glances- Then
he seated himself, spoke a few sharp words to his Indian driver, and was whirled
away down the dusty road.
Far up the coast in Northern Humboldt, the little Indian village of W'illiamatc
was nestled. On a warm sultry afternoon an Indian maiden was seated before
her Wigwam, weaving baskets. Winona the Winsome was she, the belle of Wil-
liamate. Her heavy dark braids bound with beads hung over her shoulders. Her
dark eyes were intent on her work. Her tiny moccasined feet peeped from be-
neath the beaded fringe of her garment, and her slender brown hands worked
busily among the willow twigs.
Very still it Was,-not a sound, save the droning of the bees, and the chirp of
the crickets. Suddenly Winona ceased working and appeared to be listening in-
tently. Then, in the distance, the sharp clatter of horses hoofs rang out, and a
moment later a buckboard white with dust, drew up at her side. The Indian driver
spoke a few gutteral words to her. She answered in clear even tones, though her
brown cheeks flushed uncomfortably, and her heart beat unusually fast, at the
shifty but admiring gaze of the white stranger. -
Such was the first meeting of George Haskings, gentleman adventurer, and
Winona the Winsome, Belle of Williamate.
Another golden Indian summer had lied, and winter was at hand. For one long,
happy year Winona had been the wife of George Haskings. But within the last
few weeks a strange, undefinable pain. a gnawing elusive something had crept
into her heart, caused, as she instinctively knew, by the fact that she and her hus-
band were growing further apart. Was the gentleman adventurer tiring of the
simple Indian maid?
Almost unconsciously her gaze wandered to her child, Little George-his fath-
er's pride and joy. I-le showed no traces of his Indian blood save in his big, black
eyes, and his black hair- As she looked, a sharp pain clutched the mother's heart,
and she turned abruptly into the cabin.
It was a dark cold night. The air was white with falling snow. The thunder
rumbled loudly, and the lightning flashed incessantly. A wild night for a drive,
yet apparently some one was going on a journey- A covered wagon drew up be-
fore George Hasking's cabin. A Figure muffled in furs carrying a bundle covered
in like manner, stepped into the vehicle and was whirled away into the night.
It was very dark in the cabin--very dark, and cold, and silent. Suddenly came
a low moan, and then a slight movement, as if someone were searching for some-
one. Later a light gleamed forth in the darkness. Then a sobbing terrified cry
rang out. That was all. A moment later the light disappeared and a figure
stepped out into the storm, and crept stealthily toward the stables- A soft whin-
ney of a horse, a low muttered command,-and a horse and rider appeared, and
faded wraith-like, into the night.
Two days had passed, when a tired traveller applied for shelter at the little
village of Arcata. Shortly after his arrival, a horse and rider swept into the town,
and made their way, through the mist and rain, to an Indian village on the out-
Again it was night. and still it was dark and cold, and an unusual thing for
Arcata, a heavy snow was falling. About ten o'clock, when all places, save the
lighted saloons, were dark, a Hgure clad in Indian garments made its way to a
home where the hanging latch law prevailed, noiselessly opened the door, and en-
tered the cabin. It did not stay long, but soon emerged, carrying a bundle en-
veloped in furs. After satisfying itself that it was unobserved, it made its way
softly down the street, and fled swiftly away toward the forest.
The next morning a great hue and cry was raised. A white child had been
stolen during the night. The village was in the wildest state of excitement.
Search parties were organized, and every available man joined them. But no
trace could be found. The soft, moccasined feet of the midnight intruder had left
Meanwhile, in the heart of the snow-covered forest. an Indian maid. clasping a
child close to her breast, was struggling on. For hours she had tramped through
the snow. At first-Ah! how bitter had been the cold,-but now. a drowsy
numbness, a strange, sweet warmth was stealing over her. How soft and warm
the snow was-a white bed, inviting and tempting! NVhy should she not lie down
and rest, and then continue her journey? Surely she was far enough into the
forest to elude all possible pursuers! She would lie down and rest, and--
The benumbed brain awoke, and with a low sob of horror. she elapsed the child
close and struggled on. How very tired she was. She could gn no further. Surely
it would not matter if she sat down. just for one little minute. She would not go
A big snow-covered log loomed up before her, offering a resting-place at its
side. With a tired sigh she sank into the wsnow, clasping the child close, as though
she would impart to it the warmth of her body. The babe awoke, stroked its
mother's face tenderly with its tiny hand, and settled back into its nest.
They found 'them there, half covered by fallen snow, the babe clasped close in
the mother's arms, its tiny blue lips close against her cheek.
One man in the party, choking back a sob, turned abruptly away. He alone
could have explained the tragedy, but he did not.
Blindly he made his way back to Arcata. And the next day George Haskings,
gentleman adventurer, left for parts unknown.
AN INDIAN TRAGEDY
On the brow of the Trinity a man stood solhouetted against the western skyg
a tall bronze figure, lithe and muscular, glistening with oil and paint, and be-
decked with beads. ln one hand he held a repeating rifle. The other was tightly
clenched by his side. His strong brown face was seared with pain. His eyes.
brightly alert, held at times a look pathetic in its sadness. but oftener they gleamed
with a baleful fire.
For Walama, chief of the Chocatins. outcast and fugitive, had at last reached
the end of his rope. And he realized the fact.
His enemies the Pale-faces, guided by Indian spies, were surrounding him.
He could flee no further. Before him raged a majestic mountain torrent, which
fell a frothing, foaming mass, sheer down over the edge of the precipice. Behind
him, unseen but seeing,'crouched his pursuers.
Walania experienced no fear as he stood there, straight and silent-a fine target
for any rifleman. He knew that they were trying to capture him alive-that they
might the better torment and persecute him. He would not be shot but as a
last resort. '
Deep down in his heart a plan formed. which soon became a fixed resolve.
Strong and brave, death held no fear for him. 'The thought of it caused neither
heart nor pulse to beat the faster.
Dispassionately, he reviewed the past. Scarcely a week ago, young, hopeful,
the idol of his people, he had been happy. But now-
His quick ears detected the crackling of brush a short distance away. But
he did not move. Again came the crackling of a twig, this time nearer.
Walama with a quick gesture threw his arms toward heaven. Then, still tight-
ly grasping his rifle, with a war-cry whose martial strains echoed over the moun-
tains, he plunged headlong into the torrent.
A cry of surprise and horror broke from his pursuers. With one accord they
rushed to the precipice. Nothing could be seen. The turbulent stream, gleaming
and flashing in the sun's rays, rushed onward. Once, far down below, a black
speck appeared for a moment, but it quickly disappeared- The deep roar of
falling water, like a solemn requiem alone broke the silence.
Walama, Chief of the Chocatins, had been gathered home to his fathers.

CSequel to My Nifty Camel in the Advance for 1909j
Come friends and fellow playmates dear
And join with me this day
In grief for my poor camel, who
Has lately passed away.
It is with grief I take my pen
To honor him that's deadg
And praise him for his services,
Although his life is sped.
'Twas but a year ago since I
Enjoyed with honest pride
The service of my camel true,
As on him I did ride.
But from that time he sickened. and
He shrank beneath my weight.
He could no longer climb that hill
With the selfsame steady gait.
And when I saw his life was slowly
Drawing to a close
I deemed it was my duty for
To give him quick repose.
So early one bright morning, e're
The sun rose in the sky.
Mid sounds of lamentations, then
I led him off to die.
VVith one shot from the rifle then
I solemnly did hack
The thread of brutal destiny
And killed him in his tracks.
Then, touched with pity and remorse,
I sorrowed o'er the expiring horse.
"Ol1! Cyclone dear, your work is o'er.
And you shall climb that hill no more.
I little thought, when Hrst astride
Thy back I did attempt to ride.
That crows and bnzzards e're should feed
On thy fleet limbs, my noble steed.
The falling leaves shall be thy bier,
So fare thee well. my camel dear."
Slowly and sadly I turned away,
Yet I felt no pang of sorrow,
For I knew he would be in a happier land
When he woke on the morrow.
But now each night, as I trudge home
From school all by my lonely,
I often sigh, and think of him
That I once loved so fondly.
Oh! friends, I've lost a noble steed
He was my joy and pride.
This world is ups and downs to me
Since my poor camel died.
THE IVIOCCASIN PLANT
In the spring and early summer, the grass is fresh and green, and the bees
buzz merrily as they Hit from flower to tlower. The birds sing and twitter in
every bush and tree, thrilling our hearts with joy.
The roadside and fields are dotted with white and pink daisies. Violets blue
and yellow cover the hillside, and the wild strawberry peeps from every rock and
tuft of grass. The wild currant, also, with its bunches of pink blossoms, abounds
throughout the woods, and along the fences the cherry with its delicate white
flowers grows in wild profusion.
In the woods under the stately redwoods, nod triliums, dainty little bluebells
Along the creeks, green mosses of varied hues cover the rocks and ground like
a velvet carpet, with here and there a cluster of gold or silver leaf fern. On the
banks, great bunches of five finger and sword fern grow, making a beautiful ar-
bor, suitable for any Fairy Queen. Then, in shady nooks, the little Lady Slipper
grows in delicate shades of pink and white. The Indians call it the "Moccasin
Plant" from the following pretty little legend:
Years ago, a tribe of Indians lived on the banks of a beautiful river. The
women used to sit by this river and chat. One young mother never took her eyes
off the cradle where her baby boy slept. She called him "Little Bravof ' Time
passed on, until Little Bravo was ten years old-
The little boy could hunt and fish. He was lithe and supple, and the pride
of his father and mother- His mother happily dreamed of the time when he
would be a young man. She was always making beautiful clothes for him, trim-
ming them with beads and porcupine quills. Little Bravo had the most beautiful
moccasins of all the boys in his tribe.
One summer night it grew very warm, and Little Bravo's father predicted a
storm. Missing the child, he anxiously inquired of his wife, "Where did Little
Bravo go P"
"He is down by the river asleep," she answered.
"I sat by him a long time, brushing away the insects that bothered him. His
little yellow moccasins are by him. He is very beautiful, our Little Bravo. I
will carry him in when the storm comes, without awakening him."
The storm soon broke with great violence. The mother hastened to the river,
and just as she was about to lift her boy, a vivid flash of lightning revealed the
two hands of the Spirit who lives in the water. They reached up and drew Little
Bravo into the waves. All the mother saw was the print of his body on the shore,
and his two yellow moccasins. Her screams brought the father to the shore. They
both rushed into the water, but could not find their son. They plead with the
Great Spirit to give him back to them again, but in vain, for he had been taken
to the Happy Hunting Grounds- The father turned sadly into the forest. The
mother would not be comforted, but sat by the river day after day, without food,
kissing and caressing the little moccasins.
One evening as she was by the river. she saw the pathway made of flower dust.
the milky way, which leads to the Spirit Land. How she would like to follow
that road! Suddenly, she felt some one touch her, and, turning around, met the
smiling gaze of her.son.
"Oh Great Spirit, I thank Thee! The dead is alive!"
The boy merely said, "Come, we are going to follow that pathway. I have
come for you because your weeping grieves the happy ones."
The mother eagerly clasped the small hand. "Here are your moccasins. You
might need them, for the way' may be long and rough."
The child showed her his feet, and on them were golden slippers.
"Lay down the moccasins. and you will see how a mother's love shall be re-
membered." he said.
The mother put the yellow moccasins on the ground, and a plant immediately
sprang up. It grew rapidly. On the highest branch the moccasins were fastened.
They shrunk in size and changed into flowers keeping their original shape and
Little Bravo said: "See! these Howes shall bloom forever by the shining river.
Long after the Redmen go, they shall bloom."
VVondering, but happy, the mother followed Little Bravo to the Happy Land.
Later, in the midst of a battle, the father joined them.
This occurred long ago- The Indians have left the banks of that river, but the
slipper flowers continue to bloom there- The white children gather them and call
them "Lady Slippers," but the Indians always call them by their real name. "In-

The High School student wandered home at last,
Took off his shoes as Father's room he passed,
And finally, got safely into bed
And thanked his stars that his folks slept so fast.
He had been out to an exclusive feed,
And there had gorged himself far past his need,
For scarcely had he touched the pillow white,
When came the prancing nightmare, fiery steed.
He dreamed that he'was dead Koh! dreadful fatelj
And rode the mare up to St. Peter's gate,
Dismounted, and for entrance there he knocked,
St. Peter came, and to him thus he spake:
Aha! what have we here? Lets have a look!
Methinks, from casual glance, you're not a crook
But wait my son, and I will soon find out
Your pedigree-it's in the Judgment Book."
St. Peter put his glasses on his nose,
"Hum, here we are, your crimes we'll now expose:
And as he read, his face much sterner grew,
At last he turned, his voice like thunder rose.
"Accursed wretch, unconscientious man,
You've kidnaped Sophs, and murdered one Freshman
You've stayed up nights when you should be in bed
And once, it says, away from home you ran,
"You've worried teachers till their hair is gray,
You've never done but mischief all your day,
And once, it reads, you smoked a cigarette."
St. Peter paused, then sentence did he say.
"In Hades you must spend a million years."
"Oh, Pete, have mercy!" cried he through his tears
"You shall endure the tortures of the damned
And ponder o'er the sins of your career."
"On pins you'll sit and study poetry,
Milton, Browning, and more picked out by me,
In Chemistry, you will cut oh' your toe,
Its composition you will try and see."
The student woke and fell out of his bed,
And wiped the sweat drops from his aching head,
But soon the horror died out in his eyes,
"I wonder what I ate last night F" he said.

A TRIP TO A DOCTOR
The old Doctor and I came out of the post-office and strolled down the main
street of the little mining town. The Doctor was an old friend of our family,
having known my parents when they lived in Clarksville, and after they had
moved to new fields to seek their fortune, the distance did not lessen that friend-
ship. Business called me to Clarksville, and I of course called upon the Doctor,
who insisted that I be his guest as long as I remained in town.
When we were a few steps from the Doctor's office, we passed a man whom he
greeted with a hearty "Howdy do, Bill.'
The fellow held my attention because of his physical appearance- It was plain
that he had at one time suffered a terrible accident, as he walked with the peculiar
stiff-legged movement of a man with a wooden leg, and his left arm ended just
below the wrist. He was built like an athlete and would have been a fine specimen
of physical manhood, were it not for his misfortune.
We entered the office, and I picked up a newspaper, while the Doctor tele-
phoned concerning one of his patients.
"I see by the paper," said I, when he again joined me, "that a young man in
New Hampshire has been granted a Carnegie medal for saving a girl from drown-
ing. It's a fine thing that some of our millionaires put their money to such good
Again I thought of the man we had met on the street, why, I do not know, ex-
cept for the fact that he had strangely attracted me.
"Yes,l' said the Doctor. "I read that too. But if every act of bravery were
rewarded in this country, it would take all of Carnegie's money and more ton,
to keep up the fund. By today nearly every newspaper reading person in the
United States has read of that act, and probably two out of every ten have com-
mented upon it- And yet in this very town there is one of the bravest men who
ever lived. and I don't believe there is a person outside of this state who has ever
even heard of himf'
He lighted a fresh cigar and settled down more comfortably in the large Morris
chair. I put aside my paper. for, from long acquaintance with the Doctor. I knew
that a story was coming.
He told the story in simple language. and I will try to tell it in his words, as I
"Two miles from here the Muddy River winds its way through the valley. It is
hardly an appropriate name for the peaceful, sun kissed stream, that now flows
quietly through the fields, or dashes down the rocky mountain gorges, but if you
could see it in the winter or during the spring freshets, you would hardly blame
the man who christened it. The Muddy River is now spanned by a strong steel
bridge, but at the time of this occurrence it could only be crossed in boats, or by
"On the other side of the river the country becomes mountainous and rocky.
with here and there stretches of scraggly pine. Fourteen miles from the river
is Dry Creek, now a prosperous mining camp. A wide wagon road now leads
from Clarksville to Dry Creek, but ten years ago there was only a narrow trail, up
which it was a hard struggle for a horse to climb.
"Three men, Joe Ball. William johnson and John Gaston, had claims on Dry
Creek, and all three lived together, finding it more convenient and companionable
to live in the same cabin. Their nearest neighbors were the people of Clarksville,
sixteen miles away.
"One cold winter day Ball was cutting wood for their fire, when his ax slipped,
and the sharp blade cut deeply into his leg, severing the arteries and smashing the
bone. He called for help and his companions came running. They quickly car-
ried him into the cabin and put him on a bed- It was easily apparent that if a
doctor were not summoned quickly Ball would soon bleed to death.
" '-Tack, you stay here with Joe, and I'll go' down and get a Doc,' said Johnson.
" 'How're you going to get across the Muddyf objected Jack. 'She must be
more'n bank full now and there ain't nary a boat on this side. I wouldn't give ten
cents for a fel1er's chances in swimming her.'
" 'We've got to chance it,' persisted Johnson- 'Old Baldy can swim it-he's
done it before. Anyway, we can't leave Joe here like this.'
"johnson was putting on his warmest clothes as he talked, getting ready for
the long, cold ride to Clarksville. Gaston poured him some hot coffee and then
went out to saddle their one horse. When he returned, johnson was waiting for
" fIf I ain'tfback with the doctor by noon tomorrow. you'll know I'm not com-
ing,' he said as he rode off.
"The first few miles he covered quickly, but soon it began to snow, and as
the dusk deepened into night the wind and storm increased in fury. VVhen he
reached the river he gazed on it in wonder and horror. He had expected to see
it high, but how was he to cross the raging flood which snarled and hissed before
him? When he thought of his comrade up in that lonely cabin he did not hesitate,
but spurred his horse into the water. The icy current bore horse and rider far
down the river, but at last, after what must have been a terrible struggle, they
reached the opposite shore. Luckily they did too, for had they gone another fifty
feet down the river they would never have been able to have climbed the steep
and treacherous bank.
"lint here another mishap befell him. VVhen he reached the bank he lay down,
exhausted, and his horse left him and ran off toward the town. When johnson
had recovered himself he struggled onward on foot. The snow was still falling
and his wet clothes soon froze to him- He began to get drowsy, and he said after-
ward that it was only by keeping the picture of Joe, suffering, perhaps dying, con-
stantly before him. that kept him from lying down and going to sleep. At last
he could stand it no louger,and with a contented sigh he sank to the snow and was
"VVhen the riderless horse came into the Clarksville livery stable, a search was
quickly organized. and less than an hour later Johnson was found about a mile
from the town. He was nearly dead- but when he had thawed out, and was able
to talk. his first words were to tell of his friend's plight.
"At daybreak I was off for Dry Creek with two companions. The storm had
let up. and we crossed the river easily in a boat, and after a toilsome journey
arrived at the cabin. joe Ball was nearly gone. but he pulled through and today
is as well as he ever was. Johnson, however, was not so fortunate, for he was
badly frozen, and was forced to lose part oflone leg and one of his hands. Per-
haps you noticed that man we passed just.as.we,came into the officef'
"The fellow who walked with a cane andhad only one hand. Was that-P
"Yes, that was William johnson," concluded the Doctor.

the school year, the foot ball dance. Colors of both Arcata and Ferndale were
lavishly used as decorations. The four schools of the county were well represent-
ed. The programs were in the shape of small foot halls, done in red and white.
Tun CHRISTMAS TREE
In December the Chemistry sections closed school festivities for 1910 with a
Xmas tree. One of the class rooms on the upper floor was the scene of much
gaiety. The room was darkened and a tree ablaze with light stood on the plat-
form. Gifts such as whistles, rattles and horns were distributed to all. Dainty
refreshments, consisting of cake, candy and ice cream were served. The entire
success of the affair was due to the efforts of the committee consisting of Eleanor
Dodge, Gwendolen Gaynor, May Seely, Verna Hanson, and James Anderson.

The Glee Club under the leadership of Professor Halle had a good beginning
but was rather short-lived. There are a number of musical students in school
who should take an interest in such a movement and help make it a success.
UPHIPPA DEBATING SOCIETY
Debating clubs are very beneficial to all students. Guided by this idea the
Sophomores and juniors have formed a club, calling themselves the "Uphippas."
Debates are held every other Tuesday afternoon.
PYTHAGOREAN DEBATING SOCIETY
The Seniors and Freshmen likewise formed a society. The club helps to bring
the students closer together and adds to the enjoyment of school work. The 'de-
bates are held in the morning of every other Tuesday.

The first event of importance for the past year in the Humboldt County High
School Athletic League, was the Track Meet, which was held at Eureka, October
Eureka won the meet and the Soule Cup. Our school does not take as much
interest in this event as it does in other branches of athletics. For some reason,
the number of men who are willing to prepare and qualify for entry, make but a
small squad. It is to be hoped that more students will be willing to go into train-
ing for the Track Team next year.
UA S KET HA LL
Un November 12th, the basket ball and football teams, with a number of
enthusiastic rooters. journeyed to Fortuna to meet the teams of the Fortuna High
The first event was the basket ball game, which was called in the forenoon.
Our girls put up a game fight. b11t were outclassed, and at the end of the game
were on the short end of a score of 26 to 8.
The lineup of the Arcata team was: Centers-Susie Anderson, Ceva Sapp.
Lois Trumbull. Forwards-Nell Barney, Jennie Matthews, Nellie Baldwin.
Guards-Loretta Barney, Effie Acorn. Gwendolen Gaynor. Substitutes-Gen
trude Logan and Ruth Kimball.
F OOTBALL-ARCATA VS. FORTUNA
The tables were turned with a vengeance on Fortuna at the football game,
played in the afternoon.
Fortuna kicked off and from the first it was apparent that the Fortuna team
had no chance against our heavier and faster team. The score stood, Arcata 28
Fortuna O at the end of firstihalf. During the last two quarters we slowed up
and annexed only six more points. The final score was Arcata 34, Fortuna 0.
The playing of Jasper of Fortuna alone prevented the -piling up of a much
larger score. He was the main stay of the Fortuna team. ,
The line-up of our team was: Center, Graeter: R. G., Mahoney, R. T., Cragen:
R. E., Carr: L. G., McKenzie: L. T., Hinckley and Carlson, L. E., Baldwin:
B., M. VVright: L. H., Vassaide: R. H., Anderson and Hinckley: F. B. Carroll.
ARCATA VS. FERNDALE
On November 26th the Ferndale for tball team came to Arcata to decide the
championship of Humboldt County. .
The game began with Arcata kicking off. From the first the game was fast
and hard fought. Now Ferndale would be within striking distance of our goal,
and again Arcata would fight her way within ten yards of Ferndale's goal line,
where she would lose the ball and Ferndale would punt it out of danger. At the
end of the third quarter, neithei side had scored. During the last quarter, with
only about five minutes more to play, Ferndale punted from their forty-yard line
and Wright, our quarter, received the kick on the five-yard line. He started
through the broken field, dodging one tackler after another, and carried the ball
through for a touchdown, making the most brilliant and sensational run seen in
Humboldt County football in many years. Arcata failed to kick the goal and the
game ended, Arcata 5, Ferndale 0. ig
The lineup of our team was: R. G., Mahoney: R. T., Cragen: R. E., Carr: L.
G., McKenzie: L. T., Hinckley: L. E., Baldwin: B., Milton VVright: R. H..
Anderson: L. H., Vassaide: F. R., Carroll : substitutes, Carlson and H. XVright.
ARCATA VS. EUREKA '
On Christmas Day a team composed of high school stars went to Eureka to
meet a similarly composed team from that city. The game was hard fought from
the first blow of the whistle to the last, lent Arcata finally triumphed by a score of
5 to 0.
ARCATA vs. FERNDALE

THE. SPECTATOR'S VISION OF SIR ROGER
Although the club is dissolved and Sir Roger ended in this world, I, in relating
my vision to some, last night at a coffee house, was requested to add it to the
papers, thus making a grand finale.
After everyone had left the spot where Sir Roger lay buried on his funeral day.
and everything was quiet save the weeping willows, I by chance happened to be
sadly strolling along a little brook some distance away, with thoughts of our
deceased companion. Suddenly my attention was drawn heavenward, for what
should I behold but a ray of blinding light rapidly approaching the earth. The
ray fell upon the good old knight's resting place, and in a twinkling appeared a
silver winged creature, in our language termed an angel. The vision immediately
by his silver wand caused the earth to open, and I again saw to wy delight the
dear old knight's face as cheerful as ever. A brief space of perfect stillness fol-
lowed, so that the knight could collect his wits after so much excitement and con-
fusion, caused him by his funeral, and could also become accustomed to the bright
light. Then a voice from the vision called forth, "Prepare yourself for admittance
to the Gate." NI am prepared." seriously replied Sir Roger.
"Indeed, nothing but yourself is allowed upon the golden stairs."
"But how can I part with this suit, which style has been so dear'to me F'
"Fie, fie, Sir Roger," and in a moment the angelic creature disappeared as
quickly as it came. Sir Roger, somewhat bewildered at such reprimands, finally
decided that he would give up the suit and chance finding the widow whom he had
vainly sought on earth, in heaven. So he made his way up the golden stairs and
safely arrived at the Great Gate. Serious-minded Saint Peter called out:
The answer came back to him. "Sir Roger de Coverleyf'
Queried again, "Afoot or mounted ?"
"Afoot, Saint Peter."
"No admittance unless mounted, Sir Roger."
The poor old knight with downcast spirits sadly began to retrace his steps.
Then suddenly I myself began to climb the golden stairs and in a few moments
came face to face with Sir Roger, who, observing me, exclaimed that there was
no use in my going further, being unmounted- I. however, responded that "much
might be said on both sides." Suddenly a happy thought came to Sir Roger. He
proposed that I act as his horse and in that way we could both enter. I readily
agreed, and so we hastened on to the Great Gate. Saint Peter again thundered
out, "WhoIs there P"
The answer, "Sir Roger de Coverleyf' was duly given.
Then as before, 'fAfoot or mounted ?"
"Mounted this time, Saint Peter-"
"Very well. Sir Roger. pass in, but hitch your horse outside."

The Blake Independent Telephone
ls Still On Deck
Contrary To All Expectations
When I started in 1901 to cut a swath through the brush and timber be-
tween Christmas Prairie and Blue Lake, a distance of about fifteen miles, people
laughed real loud and called me "Mr, Looney". I laughed a little to myself, of
course. Well, I got the line through and had three 'phones in operation on
Washington's Birthday, 1902, with Dr. W. L. Perrott of Blue Lake, John Mc-
Atee of Bald Mountain and the Blake log cabin home on Christmas Prairie
connected up. -
"Old Knocker" felt awfully sore because I had succeeded, and I laughed
a little more. But when I started to dig holes for a line from Blue Lake to
Arcata, then all the wise men from ,Podunk to Squedunk lit right on my back.
They told me that I was simply the grandfather of the whole Idiot family, that
the "Sun-Down" company would eat me up, body, soul and ranch too, so quickly
that I would not have time to say good-bye. Even the genial, sociable Master
of Ceremonies of this great county, made no bones in telling me in the plainest
American language that such was the case, and that I must quit. Now you
must all know by this time that I am not of the "quitter" breed, so I d1'dn't quit.
Now, you dear old Wise Man, cast your eagle eye over my territory and see
who is enjoying the "bestest" meal. Nine years and more of telephone progress,
and Fm able to look over the top of my glasses at you!
Mr. "Wise Man" is dead. I killed him and buried him without pomp or
ceremony. "Old Knocker" is still alive and knocking, and awfully sore. He's
the hardest proposition ever. Well, I don't know as we want to kill him off en-
tirely, for he is like the bad microbe, we have got to have him for the good mi-
crobes to feed on. He is quite stimulating at times.
To my old stand-by friends and patrons, l have the very kindliest feelings,
of which you are all aware. If it had not been for your loyalty and your love
for that which is right and honest, then long before this blessed day, your humble
servant would have been "down and out."
Very truly yours,
J. H. BLAKE.

lj w KI I the readers of The Advance in lieu of an acl. They are from the pen of a great philosopher
w n t dmit that they carry more real value for the young man or woman who may read them, than
d b h we or any other firm could possibly offer.
If you work for a man, in l-leaven's
name work for him. If he pays you
wages that supply you bread and butter,
work for himg speak well of him: stand
by him and stand by the institution he
represents. If put to a pinch an ounce
of loyalty is worth a pound of clever-
ness. If you must vilify, condemn and
eternally disparge, why, resign your posi-
tion, and when you are outside, damn to
your heart's content. But so long as
you are a part of the institution do not
condemn it. lf you do, you are loosen-
ing the tendrils that hold you to the in-
stitution, and the First high wind that
comes along' you will be uprooted and
blown away, and probably you will
never -lcnow why.
