MY FIRST ACCIDENT
Once upon a time, when I was a little girl, I lived on a farm. We
had horses and cows which we kept in the big barn-yard. This yard
long trough in it, so that the animals always had fresh water.
I often saw my father clean this trough. One day I decided I
do it for him. I got two boxes and stood on them.
I reached over and put
my hands into the water. Just then the boxes tipped over, Head first I
went into two and one-half feet of water. I kicked frantically. My broth
er came by and saw me. He laughed hard at me. Then he saw that he ought
to bring help, and so away he ran for my mother. She rescued me but I
was wet from head to foot.
D My father didn't laugh at me when they told him of my accident for he
knew that I was trying to help him,

A TERRIBLE SCARE
One evening while I was in town getting provisions that we needed for
our vacation, I chanced to hear a man say that two mountain lions had
been killed near town. It was pitch dark outside and I didn't like the
thought of mountain lions.
'However I took my packages and started out for
bout a mile away. When I had gone half way I heard
leaves in the bushes. I started to go faster. The

The spring time is here.
The flowers are hereg
The birds are singing,
In the tree-tops a-swinging.
The buttercups all in gold,
Look around very proud and bold.

MY PET SKUNK
When I lived in Wisconsin, my dad did a great deal of hunting. One
day he shot a mother skunk with five little ones. He brought them all
home. I especially liked one of the little ones as he was different from
the others. He was tame and gentle, while the others were wild.' When the
skunks grew up, dad killed the four wild ones and sold their skins. Then
I had the friendly skunk for a pet. He made his home under our house for
a year and a half, We fed him just like a cat, but we had to be careful
not to hurt him or he'd raise trouble. He behaved very wellg and did not
bother us much, but one day our cow scared him, and we never found him
again. We supposed he went to live in the woods with the rest of his
friends. A l

THE BRIDGE OF LATIN
This is a dialogue between two school boys who are going to try to
cross the narrow bridge of Latin. Under the bridge is the river of Fail-
ure. The two boys are Carefulness and Carelessness. lCarefulness speaks
first: " "
' HI am going to cross this bridge of Latin,step by step, as I have
heard that it has to be crossed carefully.n '
UI am going to rush across and get there quickly. If I only touch
the high steps, I shall be able to make it.U
UYes, but if you don't touch the low steps as well as the high ones,
you will find that when you are on the bridge, the steps get farther apart.
By the time you reach the middle, you will be exhausted, and,will have to
give it up, or fall into the river of Failure.H
NWell-l-a, I can see your point, and I think I had better follow your

' ALMOST AN ADVENTURE
One bright day in summer, Tom, a boy of thirteen years,decided that
he would go out for a trip in his new boat, NQueen.U
It happened that the wind was strong enough to make it sail at a fair
speed. After he had eaten his lunch on an island, he fell asleep. In a
few moments he was awakened by some talking. . I '
'He jumped up quickly, and quietly climbed a tree. He heard some one
say that he had hidden a treasure in a tree. Then to his surprise, he saw
a group of his own chums who had come there seeking adventure. He hailed
them and some of the boys rode home with him in his sail boat. '
Thus ended a perfect day as far as the boys were concerned in spite of
the fact that Tom had met with no real adventure.

. HISTORY LESSONS
The O7 girls have studied how the United States won the respect of
the world, and how the beautiful city of Washington grew. '
It is very interesting to study how the White House was built. It
was very miserable and uncomfortable at first, but now it is a beautiful
and comfortable home for the president and his family.
