HAT "war is degrading to the human
- racen I was now fully convinced. I had
sailed on a tramp steamer, been jolted in
jinriksha's and carried across streams by
little brown men whose bareness embarrassed me
at first-to marry Harry, my Harry, only to hear
that a detestable Russian army lay between Pekin
and Qiharo and would delay us for a month or
I can remember yet how I had to bite my lip
tm lteep from crying before those curious slant-
I secured comfortable quarters in one of those
little Japanese houses-"play housesu-I call
them, and had blubbered for perhaps two days
when a dignified little Japanese entered and to my
astonishment requested, nay ordered, that the
most gracious Emperor of Japan requested my
honorable presence at once.
Not being so important yet "having some
spice of honorw in my own work. a newspaper wo-
man, I was delighted at the opportunity to see a
really, truly, Emperor. Dressing hurriedly I fol-
lowed my pompous, little guide, who provoked
my inward mirth by his unfailing dignity. In a
short time we entered the beautiful grounds of the
most holy Emperor of Japan. Entering the pal-
ace and passing through innumerable, thick car-
peted rooms, whose walls rolled back at the touch
and the air seemed heavy with some pungent
I presently entered the ante-chamber of the
Emperor of Japan. ' e i
I remember thinking with a little thrill how
perfectly happy I would be if only Harry were
with me. I recalled myself with a start and turn-
ed to meet my Jap guide coming softly toward
me. I drew back, startled, but he merely motion-
ed toward a little entry, though still "sizing me
upl' as I thought.
I entered, and walked in apparently calmly,
tho' really my bones were knocking, made a low
obeyance to the little brown man on the "high
chair," as it looked to me, and inquired what was
his will with me. He did not answer immediate-
ly, but on looking around and seeing my guide
and another man near harshly ordered them from
the room--the went-tho' sullenl , it seemed to
Then his little slant eyes regarded me curious-
ly-4'You Helen Lenoldsl Come to meet Mr.
Hallery Lice ?"
Astonishment at his knowlezlge of my affairs
werha as showed itself in m face, for he smiled
hugely. "Are vou not the ath-el-atic ffirl who
G .f . I - 25
shoot, swim ?" tl had won a medal in a wo-
men's swimj. '
"And are you not the girl-el who wrote Q
newspaper article on the pl-easant war P"
To all these rapid-fire questions I merely nod-
ded and he made a queer little gesture of satisfac-
tion and struck a queer dragon shaped gong
which nearly frightened the wits out of nie.
Immediately came a soft shuffling of feet
from somewhere to my left and a servant entered
and bowed low to the Emperor.
They conversed rapidly for some minutes and
as I looked curiously around it seemed to me as
if the reed walls on the left bulged inward as if
someone were pushing against themithere.
"Miss Leynolds-this man talk to you l" The
servant bowed courteously to my gaze and mo-
tioned toward a low divan. I seated myself and
watched interestedly the short, erratic, walk of
the little Emperor. Then the interpreter: "Miss
Reynolds, you are aware that the two Japanese
parties, the Okai and the Shumari are in deadly
enmity over the policy followed by the Emperor
in the presentiwar ?" QThis in the most perfect
Englishgatiny nod he continuedj. "The Em-
peror has long wanted to culminate this unhappy
war by negotiation with the Czar of Russia-this
the Shumari are aware of and have killed each of
the three messengers we have dispatched, sending
us a hideous remembrance, two human fingers,
the sign of the party." Vtfhat this was leading
up to I was perfectly unaware, but in any event I
was intensely interested.
Then the interpreter: "Miss Reynolds, for
the sake of humanity, for the sake of Japan's
homeless and destitute, the Emperor begs you
carry an important paper, in fact, peace negotia-
tions to the Czar of Russian I sprang to my feet
in asonishment, perhaps my firm determination

to do nothing of the sort showed itself in my face,
for he tried artifice. "As I understand, Miss
Reynolds, you are to have a happy event in your
life in the near future and the Emperor has laid
aside 350,000 in English curency for you on the
culmination of your services."
I wavered, Harry and I were so poor, and the
poor boy had worked so hard to scrape our piti-
fully small nest egg together.
That interpreter knew his business all right
for he artfully added: "Your route will take
you past Oiharo-maybe you could see Mr.
Rice there and he could accompany you from
there to the headquarters of the Czar"- and I
assented as he knew I would.
Then my instructions: First of all, I was to
regard my papers as myself. But as to my route.
I was to go from Pekin to Bangai--by boat, I
chose mentally, as I had experienced Jap jinrik-
shas. From there, if successful, overland to the
Czar's headquarters. They especially warned me,
and the Emperor was intensely earnest, to beware
of any men the lobes of whose ears had two min-
utes punctures. These, he said, were men of a
strong organization, descendents of the old jap-
anese robbers and pirates, who had murdered the
other three messengers.
I left the palace, my precious document clasp-
ed closely to my breast, and seeing punctures in
the lobes of all the palace servants' ears, big
enough to see a house through. I happened to
half turn and saw my guide of the palace follow-
ing me, tho' when he saw that I noticed him he
pretended to be buying some cakes from one of
the small shops. I went forward for perhaps two
English blocks then turned swiftly, sure enough
there was my man. I realized, heart-sick, that I
was followed even now. Then I went rapidly
through a maze of street and crowds and finally
arrived at my quarters breathless and triumphant,
for it seemed I had shaken my persistent shadow.
I immediately began to make preparations tb
go to the boat and taking my .38 Smith 81 XVes-
son revolver, lay it on the dresser in front of me.
Then I thanked my stars I had been so raised,
particularly in regard to my skill in shooting and
gymnasium work. Then I thought that perhaps
I might meet Harry and prayed, ohl so strongly
that I might. There was a bare possible chance
that I might, for the last time I had heard from
him he was preparing for a cruise against the
pirates in the vicinity of Bangla.
Then I ended my "day-dreaming" or rather
''evening-dreaming'I and taking only my neces-
sary belongings and strapping my Smith 81 W'es-
son in a suitable place I left for the water front
and the junk the Emperor had designated as my
Finally finding my destination among the di-
lapidated and nondescript junks along the harbor,
I walked up the gangplank of a villianous looking
junk and handed the note the Emperor had given
me to the old japanese who was smoking on the
hatchway. Ile read the note and toddled, beck-
oning to a little room that was so neat and de-
cidedly japanese that I voluntarily gave a little
gurgle of delight. As the Emperor had told me
that the junk would sail the next day, I opened
the port window and began a letter to Harry and
became so interested in it that I forgot the dan-
gerous position I was even now in. The sound of
muffled oarlocks aroused me and I leaned out
of the window to see six villianous looking laps
come quietly over the side of the junk-this was
not so unusual but. with a start, I thought I re-
cognized the square shoulders of my palace guide.
As the sputter of the wood torch brightened it
threw a weird scene in relief against the dark
background of the night. The litter of coiled
rope, rotten sails, thrown against the sides of the
junk would come into view, then were blackened
by the deceptive light. The light lit fitfully on
the japs in the prow.
They were in a close group, conversing in
low tones with every now and then a glance to-
ward my room. Then they dispersed quietly and
soon I heard the soft shuffle of bare feet, the
creaking of ropes., . 'Soon my. suspicions and
alarms were thoroughly aroused, for the junk was
I lay tense in the bed for hours it seemed to
me, every muscle flexed. and praying that some
power would send strong, dependable Harry to
my aid. Then echoing, eeirly up the passage
came the soft pat, pat, of bare feet. My limbs re-
fusing to move I grasped my revolver and strained
myself against the wall. I
Presently the door began to slowly open, and
I could discern the cunning features of my crafty
guide of' the--palace. I-Ie cautiously approached

the bed, then-I must have made some sound, for
he was on me like a flash before I could fire. He
evidently intended to choke me for he made sev-
eral attempts to reach my throat-but as I have
said, I am very strong and was nearly his equal
VVe wrestled in silence for a space of time,
then I felt a tightening of his muscles and he
threw me on the floor. I felt a stinging sensation
on my wrist and grabbed the revolver I had drop-
ped in the fight. He was reaching for my throat
now, and the smell of his clothes, the touch of his
body to mine maddened me and I thrust the bar-
rel of the revolver against his body and angrily
ordered him up. He slowly arose, his mouth
twiching with rage, and his slant eyes like green
slits of fire. I was horribly frightened and had
a fear that the other murderers might have heard
the noise made by our fight. The cords of my
bathrobe gave me an idea how to do away with
my captive and covering him with the revolver
I tied him to the bed as best I might.
For some moments I lay in the corner farth-
est from the door, moaning in terror and pain,for
the brute had bruised me horribly, and satisfied
that the next few minutes would witness my
death. Presently I decided that I would carry
the war into the enemy's camp and crept softly to
the door. There was no sign of life in the pas-
sageway and I shivered as a blast of cold, salt air
struck my bare shoulder, for the Jap mad torn off
the sleeve of my negligee in our fight.
Then the sound of the Shumari conversing in
low modified voices from somewhere in the re-
gion of the prow came to me and I proceeded
Flickers of light through the porthole at the
end of the passageway warned me that the Shu-
mari were on the deck outside the deckhouse and
I cautiously glanced through the porthole and on
the ghostly scene outside. The men were in a
semi-circle and I was directly above them. They
were sewing upon some canvas and as I watched
I recognized it as being those in which they bu-
ried the dead at sea. They I shuddered-they
were making that bag to encompass my body and
so certain were they of the little jap's ability to
do away with m that they had begun work on my
I debated rapidly upon my immediate course
of action-if only Harry were there to judge for
me-and decided as the men appeared to be with-
out revolvers, but had their murderous looking
knives, I would stand more chance of success if I
could get them before they could separate.
My plans worked beautifully, without a word
of warning I stepped out and tried to say calmly,
'fHands up l" in English, of which they would not
have understood a word. But my throat seemed
to be stopped and I gave an insane sort of yell
which served the purpose admirably, for they
sprang to their feet and huddled in the stern, a
frightened, chattering group of laps, with no
thought of attacking me.
And it must have been a picture to frighten
anyone, there I was to all appearance a chatter-
ing maniac with a revolver that might do damage
at any time and they showed their respect for my
revolver by keeping where I motioned. The
ghostly yellow of the torch light threw only the
stern of the boat in relief and I imagined I heard
a noise in the prow, but dared not turn my head
for the ,laps were becoming bolder and showed
signs of attacking. I noticed particularly the ac-
tions of one fellow whose arms hung long, gor-
illa-like and I thought once or twice he glanced
past me. but when he saw that I noticed he tried
to act unconcerned.
The soft pad of bare feet back of me made me
wheel suddendly. I saw nothing in the blackness
and I turned just in time to stop the swift attack
of the Japs with threatening motions of my re-
volver. I was certain that there was someone
in the darkness back of me and I realized that I
was at a terrible disadvantage. If I turned my
head for the fraction of a minute, the 'Iaps in the
stern would attack me and at any minute a shot
or blow from the something back of me would
spell my "finis."
I tried stratagem and began to slowly back
toward the right side of the junk, watching both
the stern and the prow as best I might, but I had
miscalculated and stumbled over a loose rope end
and lowered my revolver in trying to regain my
There was a cat-like rush from behind and I
clenched and fought desperately with my palace
guide who had somehow released himself from
my insecure fastenings. He secured a hold on mv
upraised wrist and slowly bore it downward by

main strength-the other men were near waiting
to deal me a finishing blow and as I felt 1ny
strength going I desperately pulled the trigger
and screamed to the one who had always helped
me out of all troubles--"Harry! Oh Harry!"

Lord! just wait you devils. You"-it seemed
he was crying with rage. At the sound of his voice
the murderers stopped aghast but before they
could fly a blue cyclone swept over the side and
Harry followed by a boatload of blue jackets
from his cruiser were cutting and slashing my
Harry was unarmed, having dropped his
sword in his haste to get over the side of the
junk, he told me afterward. As I lay still too
dazed to move I saw he and my guide in a des-
perate struggle-the guide trying with all his
might to kill him with his murderous knife. In
their contest they took no notice of where they
were stepping and the guide began backing in my
direction. I glanced at Harry and motioned to-
ward the man's ankle-then suddenly when he
was within my reach I grabbed his ankle and he
dropped instantly. Harry was upon him and had
him by the throat. Then when he had choked
him into submission he was put into irons and
taken to the government cruiser for trial.
As I was incoherent in my joy and could
do nothing but sob on Harry's shoulder we were
rowed to the cruiser, there I told my story, and
Harry alternately stormed, praised my courage
and strength and stamped up and down in his
rage. He vowed if a single hair of my head had
been injured he would have blown japan off the
map, and knowing him I believed it. I
As I am writing this Harry, my Harry is
holding one hand while I am ineffectually trying
to write with the other. Harry punctuates the
sentences with-well you know we are to be mar-
ried as soon as we reach Zona, then we are to de-
liver our negotiation papers to the Czar's head-
quarters three miles inland and our journey will
be done. Harry says he won't touch a cent of
my 550,000 and I have earned 3300.000 but it's
our nest egg and he must.
He has finished telling a beautiful little japan-
ese legend which ends, "And they lived happy
ever after" and I can think of no better way to
end this tale and I am sure we will, aren't you?

Spring has come. It's really here!
Dad's expected it all year.
Ma's took down a window curtain
Goin' to house-clean soon, that's certain.
Other signs of Spring's about,
Dinky flowers a-shootin' out,
Birdies sing to beat the band
XVhile the farmers plow their land.
Springtime freshets, flowing hard,
Float the walks in our back yard,
And the wind feels kinder cool
Blowing down your neck at school.
And the sunshine, after rain,
Beaming through the window pane
Gives you creepy sorts of thrills,
Makes you want to climb the hills.
Ramble round. or hunt spring flowers,
lYhile away the study hours,
Hunt for pussy willows, poke
Fingers into poison oak.
Spring is sure a dandy season
And I guess I know the reason.
Summertime is coming soon
And I'll be a Soph in june.

THE SONG THE HAIRPSTERS SANG
Two children, Arthur and his sister Hellas.
Once started on a journey long, to find
Out freedom in a far and distant land.
They rode upon a ram with Golden Fleece,
Although the worth of it would please a king.
And thus they fled for many days and nights,
Between the deep blue sky and earth so dark,
XVith lover waging war. But ere the land
To both, so blessed, was reached, a thing both
And sad had come to pass: for while in flight
Above the great and mighty waters of earth,
The little maiden, Hellas. looking back,
Fell downward into the sea and met her doom.
And thus for her the Hellspont was named.
Her brother, tho, with deepest sorrow, trav-
Until he reached that land where all was bright,
And sorrows fade away, and then he took
The fleece from the ram. and placed it on
A tree g and over it, a dragon, meant
To guard it from all harm.
Some say kissin's ae sin,
But I say, not at a'g
For it's been in the warld
Ever sin' there were twa.
If it werena lawful,'
Lawyers wadna' 'low itg
If it werna haly,
Meenisters wadnal doe itg
If it werena modest,
Maidens wadna' taste ity
If it werena plenty,
Puir folk couldna' hae it.

Georgius Carolus Geuillimus Stein. .
Early and late
Studying studies too many to state.
All that he studied, it went to his head,
All that he held,
Diminished his legs while his cajnut it swelled
Till one day,
To his dismay
He found that his body had vanished away.
And thus he remained,
So to speak, brained.
His head having nothing beneath it sustained,
Rolled to the floor,
Out of the door,
Away down the street and was seen nevermore.
Here is a warning
Clear as the morning,
To the students who prudence and exercise
To studies inclined,
Like drunkards to wine,
They'll depart in the same geometric design

And his breeches, and all of that,
Are so queer.
His nose is very thin,
And it rests upon-the evening clouds,
Like the last rose of summer

All its lovely companions
Are faded and gone.
O, why should the spirit of mortal be proud!

And inquired his way to Norwich.
He went to the south and burned his mouth

Holds communion with her visible forms,
She speaks a various language.
Not far advanced was morning day,
lVhen-Clangl Clangl the massive anvils rang,
Like the shaking and the quaking of-
Two little lnjuns sitting in the sun,

rom Four to Six in Adirondacks
HE UB Quartetf, consisting of Betty Bur-
ton, janet Bandon, Mildred Burner and
Margaret Benshay had been at the Burtonls
summer home in the Adirondack Moun-
tains, and were now in camp, a few miles farther
up in the mountains at "Big Lake,', where they
were planning to spend most of their vacation
with chaperone, Miss Brohman, who had been a
teacher at "Braermoute," a boarding school where
the girls had just completed their junior year.
About four o'clock onemorning in june, Betty
awakened and, jumping up quickly, after a few
minutes strenuous work had the other three girls
on the floor of the cabin, and the woods rang with
their shouts of laughter.
f'Come on, girls, let's go out around the lake-
we haven't been yet, and you said you wanted to
go and see fOld Miriam,' the fortune teller,', said
Betty, when the girls had dressed and were in
front of the camp. "janet, you and Margaret
go around on the right side of the lake and Mil-
dred and I will go on the left. The first couple
to get back after three o'clock will be treated by
the other side."
"Alright, and who will be here to see who
gets back first PM asked all the girls at once.
"Mother will be here," replied Betty, "and we
will start at six o'clock."
'IBravo! Come on janet and let's get our
'duds' on and be ready to start before the other
girls,', said Margaret, and the girls rushed off
to the "Gute Nacht Cabin" hand in hand.
'fCome on Mildred, jane has breakfast ready
and we mustn't let the other girls beat us," and
they ran off to the "Brot Cabin,'y or dining cabin.
IVith cautious steps, about quarter of six,
janet and Margaret came through the trees from
"Cute Nacht" and were surprised to find Betty
and Mildred sitting calmly at the foot of a tree,
watching some birds on the lake.
"XVell, I guess you girls had better give in
and say your beaten in getting here first," Mil-
dred replied to their crys of surprise. "VVe've
been here hours, it seems like, waiting for you
girls. Canit we start right away Metty ?',
"VVait till I tell 'Mutter' we're goingf, from
Betty as she ran off through the trees to Mr. and
Mrs. Burton's cabin, but was back in a minute
calling: "All aboard for the lake trip."
"Aye! Aye!" responded the girls, and when
Mrs. Burton's shrill whistle broke the morning
stillness the two couples, with many good bye
calls, went in opposite directions into the forest.
After having walked for about an hour and a
half, which had been spent in pleasant conversa-
tion, Mildred remarked to Betty as they were
resting by the lake:
"Doesn't it seem as if Nat and Bill ought to
be here-but then I suppose they are having a
better time in townf,
"In town," broke in Betty, "why didn't you
know they had gone camping somewhere near
Malone. Didn't Nat tell you-but that's right,
they didn't know they were going when we left.
Bill wrote just last Monday and said the crowd
were to start on a camping trip Tuesday. Come
on, we must go on."
They set out and, as they were descending a
small rise, noticed in front of them a large camp.
"VVhy, whose camp can that be PM exclaimed
Mildred as they stopped in surprise.
"I don't know and didn't know there were
any camps between here and Roger's camp. I
wonder"-Betty paused as they heard footsteps
behind her and turned to see who was coming.
Then, "Bill and Nat," as the two boys advanced.
"Hoho! Bet-we surprised you girls, didnit
we," said Bill. 'iIVell, you girls are going to be
our guests for today and be prisoners while we
boys have some fun with the other girls." And
he sent the club call which brought several other
boys from the tents below.
"But Bill, Margaret and janet are on the
other side of the lake and we are having a contest
with them,', exclaimed Betty, as thee boy's pur-
pose dawned on her, "and we have to go on or
we will have to treat them."
'fIVhat of it,', replied one of the boys who
had come up. "Your father and 'chap' are here
and we are to go after your mother and Marg.
and janet at six o'clock. Your father knew we

were coming here and said we could play a joke
on you girls, so you see the result."
"Mr Burton and 'Chappie' here," exclaimed
Mildred when she had a chance to speak.
"Yes, and listen to our plan," replied Nat.
f'W'e will fix up some kind of a scary note and one
of us take Ioe's pony and sneak up to camp and
pin it on the cabin door. Wfe will say you are
a prisoner and demand so much money, etc. Do
you get ine? Oh, we fellows are pretty smart
By this time they were among the numerous
tents which comprised the boys' camp. Mr. Bur-
ton and Miss Brohman had come up and were
laughing heartily at the girls predicament.
f'Here's some red ink and some old wrapping
paper," called Joe, and the boys with the girls
in their midst followed him to the table which
had been placed under the trees.
They all offered suggestions and finally the
missive was written and one of the younger boys
had been dispatched on Joe's pony to pin it on the
"VVhat will the girls think?,' said Mildred.
"XYhat if they should be able to scrape together
ten dollars and leave it at the "Bear's Head."
"Don't you worry about them leaving the
money there," broke in Bill. "VVe won't give
them a chance."

"It doesnlt look as if Betty and Mildred are
back yet," said Janet when she and Margaret had
come in sight of camp from their trip to Mirianfs.
'fXVhy look, there's something on the door of
the cabin. Itls probably a note from the girls
but what a horrible looking thing for them to
Indeed it was horrible, as the brown paper
had given the red ink an unusual color and the
boys had taken care that it was well decorated
with spots of the ink.
l'XVhy, look here Marg"-and Janet read:
" 'To the Misses Bandon and Benshay:
" fMiss Burton and Miss Burmer are here in
our keeping and unless you girls leave ten dollars
in the hollow tree at the Bear's Head at five
o'clock, your honored hostess and her guest, com-
monly known as Mildred, who have been taken
to a dense part of the woods, will be started in a
direction, not the one in which your camp lies and
then we will desert them.
NO MANS CRONVD., "
"janet, do you suppose it's true F" asked Mar-
garet. Hjust think, Betty and Mildred lost in
these woods at night and no place to stop. Itys
three o'clock and we must be at that tree at quar-
ter to five at least. NVhere's Mrs. Burton and
where's some money,', and the girls rushed off
to find the desired.
At five o'clock the two girls with but six dol-
lars and a half in Janetys coat pocket, were sitting
at the foot of a tree at Bear's Head, discussing
whether the "No Man's Crowd" would be satis-
fied with six and a half dollars, when they saw a
canoe landing at the head of the inlet known as
the Bear's Head.
"Those must be the members of the No Man's
Crowd who are coming for their moneyf' whis-
pered Janet as the persons advanced. 6'Aren't
they awful looking people. H wish we didn't
have to stay and explain about the money."
The girls, shaking with fright, barely heard
the gruff voice of one of them ask:
"XVhere is the money ?"
Janet, in a trembling voice, said they had only
six and a half and was starting to explain when
she was interrupted by a chuckle from one of the
men. Then came a burst of laughter from an-
other and then the boys pulled down the black
cloths with which they had hidden their faces.
Before the girls had in the least recovered
from their surprise, five other canoes had ap-
peared around the bend and soon the girls were
surrounded by Mr. and Mrs. Burton, Miss Broh-
nian, Betty and Mildred and the remainder of
the crowd at XVill's camp.
"Come! Come! We must get back to the boys'
camp in a hurry or James will be having a terrible
time. VVe niustn't be late for that delicious din-
ner he has prepared for us," Mr. Burton called.
"Yes, back to the camp we go," cried the
boys in unison and in a few minutes the deep
silence of the Bear's Head was distrubed only by
the faint echo of the boys' merry college song,
"Now for some eats, letis go."

This didn't have much effect on the two chaps
to whom I was speaking, for all each did was just
grunt. But l thought I knew what I was saying.
so I wound the clock up to the last notch and set
the alarm at four o'clock. For once I was going
to show those boys that I was an early riser.
Three other boys and myself had been camp-
ing out and working for some little time, and this
incident, which I am about to describe, was one of
our many experiences, Que of the boys, how-
ever, was away at the time this accident occurred.
"XVell, hurry up and douse the glim," sput-
tered some one from under the bed covers. "I'm
I doused the glim, as we termed it, and went
scrambling and feeling for the bed, when-Ouch!
I broke my toe against that post, and hopping
on one foot I stumbled and fell on to the bed.
"It's too bad you can't get in bed like you were
civilized," growled Iieopke.
"Yes, and this hill I am sleeping on keeps me
sliding all over the tent, I don't like your fir
bough bed," spoke out jesse Black.
"If you fellows don't like it. you can lump it."
I answered, and at the same time I was feeling for
a decent place to sleep on. But sleep was out of
the question for a while, XVe made up our bed
about three times, and every one of us had to fight
At last we settled down and went to sleep.
There was nothing to break the silence but the
moaning of the wind through the trees, and our
snores. But nothing more was needed. Wie were
enough to wake the dead.
The next morning I heard a loud alarm bell
under my ear and on opening my eyes I saw that
I was crosswise the bed, and Keopke-well he
had taken a blanket and crawled off by himself.
jesse Black was huddled up on a pillow in one
corner of the tent.
I glanced at the clock-five o'clock and no
mistake. I rubbed my eyes and looked again.
Hjxlll I bughouse F" I said to myself.
I got up and examined that clock. "That cer-
tainly is five o'clock, and I'd swear I set it at
four,', I said.
"Gee Crickets! fellows, crawl out. Here it
is, five o'clock and I thought I set that crazy-
Now laugh, will you? IVhat is wrong with you

"Ch, nothing,'I said Black, "you look so
He said I looked funny because he had noth-
ing else to say, and I made up my mind that one
of them had changed that alarm. There was
something wrong or they wouldn't have laughed
XVhile I was working with breakfast, jesse
took his fishing rod and went fishing in spite of
my protests. He knew he cOuldn't catch any
fish but he went because I didn't want him to.
That was the way they both did, and if I said,
"two and two equals four,'I they would say it
After a few minutes everything was running
smoothly around camp with the exception of
"Pat" He spent his spare time putting soap or
butter or something else into the coffee pot or
mixing salt with sugar. That is the way he al-
ways did when he had nothing else to do. so I
asked him to fry the bacon.
I had learned enough to keep him busy.
The bacon seemed to be unusually greasy and
a large amount of grease was in the frying pan.
"Pat" took the pan and held it over the fire
as I had been doing, while I went into the tent
after some eggs. I turned around just in time to
see the grease in the pan catch on fire.
"Pat" jerked the pan out and started to blow
out the flame, then he stood up straight and
turned as white as a sheet and began to breathe
quick short breaths.
Then all at once he let a yell out 'of him that
shook the very tree tops, and whirling the pan
around his head, he threw it at a tree, and started
to run and dance. Qf all the Indian war dances
ever heard of, his could not be beaten. He kicked

the fire all over the caiup and let out moans and
howls that would almost frighten the very trees
In my excitement I dropped the eggs and ran to
capture him. but he ran at me like a mad man
and I got out of the way.
Black came running
who had gone crazy.
XYhat's the matter, is he mad?" he said, half
out of breath, and at the same time bugging out
his eyes until they were like teacups.
"Hot grease." l exclaimed, "but what will we
do, we haven't got a thing to stop the pain."
Wie didn't have soda or anything else and
there he was, in there on the bed moaning and
groaning like a horse with the colic. There was
very little time to think what to do.
"Let's try flour," said Black running into the
without his rod to see
"And mud," I exclaimed. "lt helps bee stings
and might cool this off a little."
VVe soon had a mix-up of flour, water and
mud made into a plaster and ready to put on.
'fXVhere is your burn,Pat," I asked him.
"Alldover," he said between groans.
We simply tore his shirt off of him and found
that his chest and right arm and hand were
burned black. He made an awful fuss when we
put on our plaster, but we put it'on anyway.
In about half an hour we got him cool enough
to talk and not groan.
"Well take you over to the boss's house and
send you to town in a buggy. How will that suit
you?' I asked him.
'fAnything, but get me to town or I'll die,"
XVe wrapped him up in dish towels and assist-
ed him to the cabin.
It was a beautiful morning and we tried to
cheer Pat up with jokes and other merriment.
VVhen we reached the house, we were met at
the door by Zeak, one of the orchard bosses.
He was fat and short and when he saw Pat
all wrapped up he started to laugh. The looks of
Zeak was enough to make Pat laugh in spite of
XYhen Zeak learned the facts he ran around
the farm like a boy. In a few minutes he had a
horse and buggy ready and was at the door.
As they went round a turn in the road we
saw that the old horse fcrippled though he wasj,
was on the run and Zeak was pounding him with
a whip. XYe heard one groan and knew where
it came from.

'I' was the day before he was to be married
and little Professor Spicrick was naturally
a trifle nervous. He was a fussy little
old man, but a great favorite among the
students. They came to him with all their
troubles and if there were any new schemes or
plans it was always Prof. Spicrick who headed the
procession to the presidents office. As he had
been a little absent minded for the last week, he
was the center of several quite clever jokes.

o But this morning, he appeared outwardly to
be quite composed. He came in at chapel and
took his accustomed seat with a very grave look
on his chubby face. It had been comparatively
silent until the moment of his appearance and then
such a buzzing and humming of voices was rather
disconcerting at the least.
After a surprisingly long ten minutes the
Professor heard his name called from the rear of
"Professor Spicrickl Professor Spicrickln
He turned and saw the president motioning
from the door. He got up and went to see what
was wanted-would he please take the table from
the corner of the rostrum and place it in the cen-
ter, ready for the scripture reading?
"XVhy, of course! How very stupid of me not
to notice that it was not ready."
He went back and very deliberately took
hold of the table firmly with both hands and
started for the front. A giggle came from the
girl's section followed by a snicker from another
corner. He got safely to the front but when he
tried to set the table down, it did not stop where
he thought it would but kept going down, down,
down. By that time, there was more than a
giggle for everyone was enjoying the joke.
"XVhat can be the matter now P" thought the
professor. He looked wildly around and there
in the corner still sat the legs of his table!

"I dunno but what l can. They was the

feet high and the water fell in one straight sheet
clean across the river without a single break,"
avowed the old man.

There was some gold on the -- river then and
I had come there with a feller named jud Splan-

funny as his name. He said he was a English-
man. I guess he was sort of a Quaker because he
didn't believe in guns and tried to make me do
away with mine. I had a good old gun then. I
could stand fifty yards away and hit a nail on

"But what about the falls."
"XVell, me and him was campin' just below the
falls about a half mile. lVe had been there about
three weeks and we had been getting quite a bit
of gold. Une afternoon, I think it was Friday.
we had had poor luck and so we quit work about
two hours before sundown and came up from the
river. Splandern set at makin' some biscits for
supper. He was some cook and he sure could eat
as well as cook. I guess that was why he was so
XVell, I went down to the river for some water
when all at once l heard a whoop and I turned
around in time to see Splandern shot through by
an arrow from a bunch of lnjuns who had just
come from behind a bunch of jack pines, .Xs soon
as they saw me they came running down towards
the river. They didn't have horses because hors-
es were kind of scarce those days but they could
run like greased lightninf I tried to keep them
away by shootin' at them with my pistol but I
found I couldn't load fast enough so I started
runnin'. I ran and the Injuns ran after. They
had started me upstream because the shore was
open clear up to the cliff by the falls and they
thought they could corner me there more easier.
XVell, I ran and ran CI certainly was glad I wasnot
as fat as Splandernj, the falls growing closer ln'

to escape and finally they had me almost to the

lots of times there is a hollow place behind the
sheet of water. I thought that I couldn't escape
no other way I might as well try to get behind the
falls as be killed by the Injuns. The falls fell right
down alongside the cliff but running out into the
water in front of the falls about six feet was a
rock. It was about four feet above the water.
Taking a last look I ran out on the rock and
jumped right into the falls. Next thing I knew
I was sprawling on the damp rocky floor of a
sort of cave. There was such aroarinl that I don't
think I could have heard a cannon go off. After
a little while it got dark and I went to sleep.
XVhen I woke up it was sort of half light. I
was hungry and still stiff from myqrun. The cave
where I was in was almost high enough so I could
stand up and it seemed to run all the way under
the falls. I started to explore it and found that
it had nothiul in it and the farther back from the
water the lower the top of it got. -Xll the time l
was hungrier and hungrier and I couldn't find
no way to get out. At last I thought I would go
out the way I come in. It happened that the
water was thinner there than any other place. I

jumped through and although the water sucked
me down quite a bit I finally reached shore.
XYhen I got back to our camp I found that
the Injuns had scalped Splandern but they hadn't
taken nothing from the camp. I thought they
would have took my gun but I guessthey didn't
because they were afraid of it.
I stayed in the same camp all summer until
late in August when I decided to pull up stakes
and go over the Cascades into the XVillamette
valley to winter. Me and Splandern had cleaned
about 320,000 between us and I thought I would
hide it, where nobody could find it, until I could
take it away. So I hid it in some little bags in
a little hollow under the falls.
During the winter I heard from someone that
there was lots of snow in the - river country
and I Become kind of scared about the money.
Sure enough when I got back next spring there
was a rapids in place of a falls because the flood
had broken off the ledge. My money is still in

the ureli Yard
EV. Smith, rector of Episcopal church,
- murdered. Found dead in churchyard
with his head crushed."
My interest was at once aroused by the
news of the crime. I had plenty of time at my dis-
posal having but recently been admitted to the bar
and, with my inquisitive turn of mind it was na-
tural for me to investigate the matter further.
The neswaper account of the affair was as fol-
"Soon after midnight a man was seen running
along Ferry street, He was promptly arrested by
an officer. The man who is a prominent citi-
zen of this section of the city, upon inquiry said
he was going for a doctor and that somebody was
hurt. No amount of questioning could draw any
further information from him.
H.-Xfter a lengthy search it was found that
Rev. Smith lay in the churchyard next to his
church. His skull had been crushed causing
instantaneous death. Vtfhat perplexed the cor-
oner's jury was how any ordinary person could
inflict such a wound.
"The especially peculiar part of the mystery is
that Rev. Smith had the robes of the church over
his night clothes. The rector's room was in con-
fusion as if a burglar had rifled it. On the floor
the police found an old style revolver, probably a
'KEarly this morning the arrseted man
was released. The police are at a loss
to determine how such a crime could be
committed seemingly under their very noses.
This promises to be the most interesting case that
has occurred for several yearsu
My mind was now fully made up. I would
see the 'very place where the crime had been com-
mitted and offer my assistance to the officers. As
my case at court was set for ten and it was now
eight, I had two hours to look over the grounds
of the old Episcopal church and I determined to
use the time well.
The church was built on the corner of Ferry
street and Edward's avenue, even with the side-
walk. Next to it the rector lived in an L shaped
house, the short leg of which was horizontal with
the street. The long side on the back pointed to-
wards the church. On the long wing of the house
opened a small window from the gable. The
rector slept in the short wing just over the street.
Between the two buildings was an open court
which was bounded on two sides by a tall iron
picket fence and on the others by the church and
house respectively. VValks were laid out and
stone benches placed under the old shade trees.
Gnly two doors led into this inclosure, one from
each of the buildings.
Being known by all the officers, I readily
obtained permission to enter the house. I ex-
amined first the doors and the room. All showed
that some persons new at the art had been at
work. The lock to the door on the street had
been picked. The room was turned topsy-turvey
as if one had searched for something. The re-
volver was found on the floor where it had fallen.
VVhen the police came, the door to the room was
found locked on the inside with the key in the
The place and position where the body had
fallen were marked out in chalk, for the police
of this town take every possible precaution. Blood
was all over the stone bench and had trickled
down forming a minature pool underneath.

a flash it came to me. Yesterday afternoon while
passing through the street on my way to my
office I had seen a cowboy struggling with an
officer. At the policeman's foot was the
I now had the man placed, a marked man at
that. with a nasty cut across his lip causing sev-
eral teeth to show. I figured it out this way:
The man had come to St. Louis for the ex-
press purpose of robbing Rev. Smith who, it
was rumored, was a miser. Arriving at night he
had picked the locks and ransacked the house, at
the same time making enough noise to awaken the
rector who had come up behind him and knocked
the revolver out of his handi
I got no further. The door of my office
was thrown open and a man of perhaps fifty
years of age with perfectly white hair, entered.
He had a hunted look about him and with a
feeble voice began, almost with a whisper.

COUNTY OF ST. LOUIS. j
I, Richard Day, being duly sworn. depose and
say, that I am either wholly or partially respon-
sible for the death of the late Rev. Smith. You
persons who hear this read will understand better
the events of last night, the tenth of March, 1908,
if I give you an account of Rev. Smith's past
Ten years ago Smith and I went to the same
training school. XVe two friends were both try-
ing to become preachers. During that term of
1898 a young lady, the sheriff's daughter, re-
turned from college. Wfe both loved her the first
moment we saw her and each of us being of
jealous disposition began to hate the other.
He won the girl and became a rector, while
I went into an active business life. My career
was unsuccessful for the simple reason that I fell
in with bad company and became mixed up in
some fraud and embezzlement cases. I then wrote
a letter to the leader of the gang, I told him all
about my plans and how I had worked them out.
In some way or other Rev. Smith got hold of the
letter and has extracted money from me ever
since to keep from making the matter public.
All these last eight years, I have lived on pins
and needles until the last year being unable to
raise the money, I resolved to destroy the paper. I
had no revolver so I procured one last night from
a cowboy and went on my way. A little before
midnight I crept up, picked the lock to the front
door, then the one to his room and began to
search for the paper. I had just begun to look
for secret places when I was startled by the Rev.
Smith knocking the revolver from my hand. I
shook him off and ran at full speed down the steps
and out doors.
For some reason never to be known I lingered.
In about fifteen or twenty minutes, I saw some-
body clothed in black rise from the room and
walk along the edge of it to the gable window,
pry it open and put something white in, then
start to return. About half way back the Rev.
Smith gave a muffled cry and pitched down
headlong onto a stone bench. I, as you probably
have guessed. ran for a doctor but was caught by
a policeman who took me to the station. I was
released this morning, because my reputation was
good, and allowed to return home.
I, as you can plainly see, will not live long.
My senses are weakening and my strength is
The paper will never be found for the reason
that the house, God knows why, went up in flames
this afternoon. At my trial this paper is to be
read, for I am now going to surrender myself to
the police and serve the term which is destined to
be mine and which I pray will be a short one.

ARMION High School was very exclusive
owing to its location in the more aristo-
2.651 cratic part of St. Louis. Life was usu-
ally made so unpleasant for undesirables
that they did not remain long. It came as nearly
being a private school as it could be, without
really being one, and there was certainly never
a more snobbish crowd of youngsters.

Cecile Dale walked in upon them one morning and
took a seat in assembly. She looked about her
politely but coolly, and being a good character
reader, asked her information from professors
rathers than pupils. She was unusually beauti-

had a way of quietly ignoring those about l1er

Cecile's grades were irreproachable and she
spoke German and French fluently and English
with such an accent that it was easy to see that
she was a foreigner. Further than this the Mar-
mion pupils knew nothing about her excepting
that she wore queer but elegant clothes and lived
in a most modern little bungalow in a rather
modern part of town.

and Nellie Stuart and Gordon Dean both reported
having seen her. The one at Newport and the
other camping in the Adirondacks.

queerest foreign looking uniform. Daddy said it

her. One morning Pauline came into the library
with a newspaper in her hand and a queer smile

HREE Sisters is the name given to the three
- mountain peaks which one may see far to
the northeast, on a clear day. In the days
of long ago, when Indians were numerous
in the western states, a certain chief Eagle Foot
was honored by three daughters. The father and
they became greatly devoted to each other.
A great plague started in his tribe and all
perished but his three daughters and himself.
They were superstitious about staying in the
country where the plague played havoc with his
tribe, so he took them to the mountains to live
the remainder of their days.
One day while he was hunting in the foot
hills of Three Sisters a stray arrow from an un-
known source, pierced his heart and he fell pros-
trate down a huge cliff. On the morning of the
third day of his absence, they set out to search for
him, for they became thoroughly alarmed. They
took three hunting knives and two dogs, but they
had no thought of taking food with them. Ali
day they tramped without results, and late in
the evening, on the edge of the snow line they
Next morning they set out. Finally they
struck a trail which was nearly covered with fresh
snow which had fallen the preceding night. A
man had evidently been on this path. There were
his tracks deeply impressed in the soft, light snow.
'fOh! cried the oldest of the three sisters, "let us
ascend this mountain quickly and overtake this
man whoever he might be. "W'ell said' respond-
ed the other two simultaneously. This incident
seemed to put new zeal in the sisters and the
blood flowed in their veins more hotly than ever
before since they set out. Each, in her own
heart, was full of emotion and each had hopeful
All day they traced it until about four o'clock
in the evening. Snow was already falling so
thickly that the trail was covered, and the tracks
were quickly becoming extinct. It had grown so
dark lately, and with the aid of the falling snow,
they soon lost the trail and were wandering over
a field of desert, or icy plain. guided by no
human or beast. for the dogs had long since gone
ahead and were probably five miles away. A cold
wind caused an exceedingly biting, piercing bliz-
zard to blow. They soon became fatigued through
hunger and cold. They sat down to rest in the
snow, for they were already so sleepy that they
staggered, when they walked. In a few minutes
all three were asleep and they dreamed of nothing
but their father. Soon they were paralyzed by
the cold. O, God only knows how these pure
hearted sisters were to perish so peacefully after
their long struggle to save their father. Yes. in
a few minutes they were frozen to death. They
became stiff, snow gathered over their bodies.
Their bodies were found two months later by a
hunter just the way in which they died, with
arms locked around each other seemingly in
prayer for the life of their father. Ever after this,
the peaks were known as "Three Sistersf,

fBy CH.Yf1Ic'1ZI't'.S'4, '14j
Seated at a table in a corner of an old attic in which there
were chests and trunks, and a great number of trinkets and
what-nots common to all old attics. was a young man. perhaps
twenty or twenty-one years of age. with a pencil in his hand.
tracing and retracing by the aid of the light of a candle, the
lines of a geometric figure consisting of a star pentagon in-
scribed in a regular pentagon. The figure was drawn in ink
upon a large piece of Chamois skin. .Xt the top of the figure
were written these words: "Get right at Very edge, yet at
round dome." -Xt the bottom: "Carry this with you always
and be rewarded."
.-X spider dropped on the figure and attracted the young
man's attention. lt crawled along one of the lines of the fig-
ure. across the Chamois skin to the word 'frewarded" and
stopped as if it were reading the word.
HI wonder if you are looking for a reward too," said the
young man. "If you're hard up as I am you would surely need
it. Gracious! I'm tired. it must be late." Ile looked at his

Hyder left without another word. He didn't
like the idea of going into a house which might have
a ghost in it.
At the noon hour, Dunnerschmitt went home as
usual to dinner. His house was at the very edge
of Punkville and ust beyond his house was a small
creek six or seven feet wide. After the captain had
eaten his dinner and was leaving the house, he saw
a man coming along the other side of the creek
with a gun in one hand and a string of birds in the
other. Thought the captain: 'KI wonder me if he
has a license. I vill find oudt." So he walked across
the bridge spanning the creek and as the hunter
"Mine friendt, I vould like to see your license."
The man looked at Dunnerschmitt a moment, then
turned and ran along the edge of the creek. The
Dutchman followed after him, calling upon him to
stop. "In der name off der law,', but all the hunter
did was to jump across the creek and run as fast
as he could. Dunnerschmitt jumped too, but he
didn't jump across. He fell kersplash, right in the
middle of the stream. Generally cold water will
cool a man off, but it didn't cool the captain--in-
deed, when he stood up in the middle of the stream,
he was very hot under the collar, and began saying
some things in Dutch, which, if translated might
not be very nice to read. After a minuate or so
of such expostulating Dunnerschmitt started the
chase again. The man ran towards the main street
of the town Ca strange course for a man fleeing a
policeman to takej. Dunnerschmitt came puffing
up just in time to see the hunter go into an ice cream
Said the captain, "I must cotch dot feller before
he goes avay der back door oudtf' So he put on a
new burst of speed, and after a short run reached
ithe confectionery, where he saw the hunter inside,
drinking a glass of soda-water. Dunnerschmitt
rushed in aid said: "Now Iive got you, mine friendt.
You vill kindly aggompany me to der nice little chail
vot ve got."
"VVhat are you going to take me to jail for?,'
asked the hunter, holding the glass near his lips.
f'Because you vos hunting mitoudt a licensef'
The hunter put his glass down, stared at his
would-be captor, then, noticing the condition of
Dunnerschmitt's clothes, he began to laugh loudly.
This made the captain angry, and, taking the hunter
by the arm, began to pull him from his chair.
"Ach! Dot is sufficient from you. You vill
come along mit me now, or maype somedings vill
"lVait a minute, Mr. Cop," said the hunter,
"you donlt want to take me." I He took a bit of
colored paper from his pocket. "See this paper ?l'
he said. "just put your peepers on that. Now
are you going to take me ?',
But Dunnerschmitt just turned around on his
heel and walked away without another word. After
Dunnerschmitt was gone, the hunter laughed again,
long and loud.
"The old dub asked me for my license," he said
to the clerk," andEI thought I would have some fun
with him. So I ran away, with him after me. Gee!
He got some sold! Ho! ha! haw !"
All the rest of the day and during his waking
hous at night, Dunnerschmitt was grouchy, and be-
fore morning he had a very nice cold, caused by
his involuntary ducking. But he had a surprise
in store for him when he reached the police station,
which made him forget, for a while at least, that
there was ever a hunter or stream in the world.
XVhen he took out his key to unlock the door,
he found that the door was already unlockedf,
Dot's funnyf, said he, "maybe one of dose goot for
nodding scared of every tings, is here before time."
He opened the door and beheld Hyder standing
in the center of the room, holding the arm of a
"Vere did you vas got dot feller?" asked the
f'He's the ghost," replied Hyder.
"You see," he continued, "I went by the house
last night about eleven an' saw the light in the win-
dow again. So I sez to myself, Ilm goin' to see if
there is a ghost there or not. Well, I sneaked in
the house, and clumb up the stairs on my tiptoes,
soze whatever it was up there wouldn't hear me.
VVhen I got up to the top of the stairs by the garret
door,I peeked through the key-hole and saw this
guy herefy and he-looked at the man beside him,
this guy here, lookin' at this." Here he pulled the
Chamois skin with the pentagon upon it from his
pocket. The prisoner reached out his hand to take
it away from Hyder. but was not quick enough, and
he only received a hard squeeze upon his arm.
"I thought I'd bring him here and let you take
a peek at 'im,', ended Hyder, "so I arrested him and
kept him in jail till about five thirty any then I
brought him here."

HIV. Oscar Ragdalef' replied the prisoner.
"Vere do you liff, XV. Oscar Raggydaly ?l'
"My name is Ragdale, not Raggydaly, if you
please," said Oscar.
"Vell, vot ever it iss, vere do you liff?'l
'fNowhere in particular. I've bee nsleeping in
that house where this officer arrested me for the
"Vhy do you stay up so late ?"
"l've been studying that figure which this of-
ficer took from me, said Ragdale.
"Vere did you get dot figures ?" asked Dunner-
"I picked it up out of a dirty corner of the attic,"
"Hyder," said the captain, "gift me dot fig-
ures. I wish to examine itf'
Hyder handed the skin to Dunnerschmitt rather
reluctantly, for he would have liked to have kept
it himself, but he knew that once Dunnerchmitt had
it, he QHyde:j would never have it again.
"Carry dis with you always und be rewarded,"
"Hum, dot sounds like treasure," and he put
the skin in his pocket while Hyder looked longingly
at it and made a wry face. "Take der prisoner to
der judge und charge him mit vagerazy,', Dunner-
schmitt directed Hyder.
Poor XV. Oscar was sentenced to four days in
jail. As soon as he was placed in his cell, which,
in fact, was the only cell in the jail, he took a pencil
and a small piece of paper from his pocket and began
to draw the star and pentagon. Then he wrote the
initial letters of the words at the top of the figure
in order to get the words as near in place as possible.
After he had written the letters this is what he saw:
G r a v e y a r d. "Graveyardl" he exclaimed.
"The intial letters spell graveyard and all the
letters say 'get right at very edge. yet at round
dome. Now I've got the clue. I remember passing
a graveyard when I came to this town and I believe
there was a round dome, although I don't see how
anybody in this burg could be rich enough to afford
such a thing in a graveyard. Now it's up to me to
get out of here. No, I guess I'll wait till my ti1ne's
out. Those fool cops couldn't work that business
out in a hundred years. It was just luck that I
found the key to it."
During nearly all the time that IV. Oscar Rag-
dale was in jail, Dunnerschmitt pored over the
Chamois skin and the drawing and writing upon
it. The night that Ragdale was released found
Dunnerschmitt in nearly the same position that
Ragdale had been when first introduced. He was
still studying the figure when Hyder came running
t ohis house and pounded on the door with all his
"Dunner?blazes, vos iss das?" exclaimed the
captain when he heard the noise. He went to the
door to see what had caused the trouble and be-
held Ilyder standing at his door all out of breath.
Before Dunnerschmitt had time to inquire as to
the reason of his haste and as to the reason for his
calling at such an hour as eleven o'clock at night.
Ilyder said in a rather excited tone of voice:
'fThere's somebody robbin' the graveyardl Any-
way I saw a light in the graveyard." .
"Vell, vhy didn't you go und see aboudt it ?"
"To tell you the truth, Cap., I was scared to go
there by myselffl replied Hyder.
"Humbug," said the Dutchman. "Come on mit
me und ve vill get him. Chust vait till I gets me
my gunf' i
So off they went, after a walk of a few minutes
were near enough to the cemetery to see a light at
one corner of it. At the corner where the light was
seen was a tomb having a round dome. The two
policemen hurried around to that corner so that they
could. approach the light in such a direction as to
keep the tomb between them and whoever was near
the iight. They reached the tomb, got down on
their hands and knees, and crawled around just far
enough to see who was the owner of the light. They
were so surprised at what they saw that neither
could move for fully two minutes. for down upon
his knees, was IV. Oscar Ragdale running his fingers
through a pile of gold coins.
Dunnerschmitt was the first to recover. He
pulled out a pistol and yelled at XV. Oscar to hold up
his hands. Of course XV. Oscar was taken by sur
prise, and all he could do was to give himself up
The policemen were going to take him to jail again,
and turn the money over to the heirs of the person
who had buried the money if they could find out
who had buried it, but Ragdale was pretty good at
argument, and persuaded them to let him have a
third and each of them take a third and then forget
all about the graveyard episode.
I may say, in conclusion, that the people of
Punkville found out about it six months later, and
Hyder and Dunnerschmitt had just time enough to
get out of town, leaving Runner to havethe position
of police captain ofiPunkville.' I

Spring had set in. The violets and spring
beauties filled the minds of the "Villa" girls, for
they were permitted to go on long walks to hunt
flowers and rumor has it that more than one for-
mer "Villa', girl has met her f'fate" while hunt-
ing for wild flowers, in the vicinity of the Acad-
emy, though it was five miles from town there
are many summer homes of eastern families, some
of whom are known to the "Villain girls. Down
the ravine and across the creek which marks the
"Villal' boundary line, is one of the most beau-
tiful of these homes. It is an old southern estate,
the summer home of an old "Villa" grad who has
a son preparing for Princeton "Spider" had met
him at Richmond during the Xmas vacation and
she had told us that he was very good looking,
rather wealthy, but had no strong proclivity for
the gentler sex. None of the other girls knew
him, for he never came to the "Cegars" except for
his summer vacation.
There were about twenty girls who lived so
far away from the "Villa', that they did not go
home for Easter and "Spider,'l "Francois," "Tot"
and 6'Rabbitt" were among this number. By
Saturday the so had exhausted their store of
amusements and the whole day stretched before
them with nothing to do, so they asked permis-
sion to go and hunt wild flowers "out of bounds"
which was granted, Miss Cardell going along as
chaperone. The old golf links, two miles from
the school buildings, were unanimously conceded
to yield "the most beautiful violets in the worldf'
so it was decided to go there and the party set
out immediately after breakfast, "Spider," "Tot"
and "Rabbitt" had an attack of homesickness and
decided to stay at school and write letters, so
"Francois" remained behind too but after she had
written a card or two, she jumped up. slammed
her portfolio sheet, and said "I don't feel like
writing today. I'm going to ask "Noddy', the
dignified president of the school, Miss XVade-
man if I can't go down the ravine and hunt for
trilliums-won't you girls come along-or some
of you, at least? None of us wanted to go just
then, so she started out alone, telling us that if
we decided to change our minds we'd find her
"either in the ravine or on the flats along the
Two hours later, "Spider" glanced out of the
window and saw Francois-but stay, Iyll tell you
first what happened to Francois in those two
hours, she told us all about it that evening, but if
I should add a few little flattering things about
her, don't blame her, for we all know she's the
beauty of the "bunch', and we aren5t a bit jeal-
ous of her either.
"Francois'l had gone down the "Ravine" and
wandered around quite a bit without finding
trilliiims so she had gone on, 'way over to the
boundaries on the other side of the "Villa"
grounds, where there was a small woods, and still
had been unable to get any more-but just as she
was about to turn back, she saw a big clump of
trilliums over on the next estate, she said that
since she had gone so far without getting any-
thing it wouldn't hurt to go a little farther and
she hated to go back empty-handed so she went
on. She soon found that it wasn't nearly as easy
as it looked for she had to climb over a good
deal of underbrush, but the harder it seemed to
get there, the worse Francois wanted those tril-
liums, so she kept on until she only had one tall
tree trunk to climb over to reach them. Then she
slipped and little needley pains shot up and down
her foot. Wihat she was going to do so far away
from anywhere, she didn't know-and there were
the flowers, just out of her reach. She tried to
get them but she was lying so she couldn't move
the tiniest bit further and the best she could do
was prop herself up on the other side of the tree
trunk and look at them. a thing which was 11ot
very consoling to say the least.
She had been sitting there about fifteen min-
utes when a dog came running by. She knew then
that someone must be near and so she wistled to
the dog and he came over to her. She patted him
on the head and he stayed with her. In a little
while she saw a couple of young men in hunting
suits away back in the woods. They stood there
a minute and then one of them struck off in the
other direction-the second one whistled for the

dog. The dog jumped up and would have gone
to the man but Francois held his collar, so he
barked for his master. Francois called to him
and then the fellow looked their way-a puzzled
look came into his face, but he turned and came
"XVhat are you doing with my dog P" he said
not seeing that she was hurt. "IV ejust now spied
a big rabbit but f'Dix" wasn't there, so I'm afraid
we've lost him." Francois could see he was an-
noyed and put out though he did speak civilly
enough. so she flared up quick and said:
"Go on then an dtake your old dog and catch
the old rabbit. I slipped and hurt my.foot and I
thought that since I was so far from a house, I'd
ask assistance from the first person who came
by, but if I'm interrupting your sport. I'm sorry,
I didn't mean to be so thoughtless. ,Ill wait until
the next hunter comes along-maybe he won't be
in such a hurryf,
"I beg your pardon!" he interrupted, and all
the annoyance left his face. "I didn't know you
were hurt, let me see if I can't fix it-I've had lots
of experience fixing sprained ankles-in football.
He came over and knelt down bv the log and
took her foot in his hand. "Francois" face
cleared, too and she said impulsively-"I'm sorry
I spoke so harply. but I was afraid no one would
COINS. and it docs hurt sof'
NVell, to make a long story short, he fixed her
foot and bandaged it with his handkerchief. She
told him that she was going to the "Villa," and
explained how she happened to be there alone.
He said that he would have to carry her back,
but she said that he mustn't do that. He told her
that he didn't know what else to do-unless jack.
his chum. hadn't gone home right away, as he
said he would and was still chasing the rabbit.
If he was still in the woods, they might make a
litter and carry her back that way. A'Then go
into the woods and hunt for him," Francois said,
and he did. After calling a couple of times. he
heard a faint haloo in the distance. He called
Jack back and they made a littre out of their guns
and a coat-and so carried her back to the "Villa"
This is why "Spider" jumped and ran when
she looked out and saw this queer procession
coming, for Jack was her brother, and the other
fellow was Jean Race, the boy who lives at the
"Cedars.H They both go to the same school and
were too far away from home to spend Easter
there, so jean decided to have a house party at
the 'fCedars," and invite some of his school
friends. Jack had not planned to go until the last
minute, and so had not written "Spider" about it.
Of course there was quite a time. for it is
against the "Villa" rules for the girls to have
gentlemen visitors outside of their immediate
family, except in special cases-and then only
with the written consent of the parents and
"Noddy," so the teachers did not know what to
do. "Noddy,' came down in a few minutes and
saw the whole situation at a glance! And tno
one knows why, except that "Noddy" and Pean's
mother had been school matesl, asked the boys
to take Francois up to the infirmary, instead of
getting some of the servants to do it. W'e girls
were so surprised that we stood theer and stared
a minute, before we had sense enough to follow
them and see the rest of it.
The other girls had not returned from the
links, or I don't suppose it would have turned out
the way it did, for "Noddy" was very careful of
her brood and we barely ever saw a man unless we
went "to town." Anyway, we all went into
4'Noddy's" private sitting room and talked while
the infirmarian was fixing."Francois" foot.
"Spider" told me afterwards that she never before
in her life saw such a difference in any one as she
noticed in Jean, for always before. he had been
so indifferent wherever girls were concerned.
Now he asked the president if they couldn't come
tomorrow to see how "Francois, was-but
f'Noddy" said it was against the rules, and be-
sides, even though she might stretch a point on
account of it being vacation, it would not be fair
to the other girls, andythey might not like it.
Jean thought a little and then asked if we girls
might not come over for Easter dinner, and spend
the day if "Francois" could be moved. He said
that he was sure his mother would be glad to have
us, and that they would take the best care of
"Francois', and the rest of us. NVell. you can
imagine ho wwe girls felt.-"Noddy" had never
done a thing like this before. and we hadnit the
slightest idea that she ever would. VVe were sur-
prised at Jean's audacity. But we were more sur-
prised than ever when "Noddy" said: "XVell,

cerning those whose names and faces are found
in public places. Do not misinterpret this-I do
not mean that we were idle, or that we added
nothing to the activities of the school--far from
it! ln that year the class of ,IS made a distinct
place for itself in the E. H. S. l
The first event of any importance in our high
school career was the class meeting at which we
elected our first officers. XVith a great deal of
turmoil and confusion, we finally succeeded in
choosing Edward Gray as president, Edna Ball,
vice president, Frank Scaiefe, secretaryg Harold
XVe,lls, treasurer, Clarence Bell, sergeant-at-arms,
and Juanita XVilkins, editor. At this meeting we
also decided upon our class colors, purple and
gold. Our first appearance in society was the
Freshmen Reception, where we were royally en-
tertained by the old students. Our appreciation
would have expressed itself in the form of a re-
turn reception, had not the plan been nipped in
the bud by a stern edict of the faculty.

the best patronized attractions, and, still later in
the year, we gave both time and enthusiasm to the
Sidney Terrill Declamation Contest, for which
we felt fully repaid upon finding that a member
of our class had won the girls, contest.
Much of our success was due to the energy
and efficiency of our officers, who were: Virgil
Vickers, president: Lois Green, vice presidentg
Harold Sexton, secretaryg juanita XYilkins, treas-
urer, Clinton Godlove, sergeant-at-arms, Truman
Chase, editor. 1
However, it was as juniors that we began to
shine in all our glory. XVe organized early in the
year with the following officers: President,
Paul Greeng vice president, Ruth Roche, secre-
tary, Eunice Foster, treasurer, Roy XVestg editor,
Jessie Dobie. The juniors were much in evi-
dence in athletics, especially in football, where
we won the inter-class championship. In debate,
too, we were prominent, the success of two junior
girls in making the teams being particularly worth
notice, as they were the first girls to represent
Eugene High in a period of several years. An-
other junior girl won first place in the decliima-
tion contest, and we figured largely in the vari-
ous school organizations, always keeping our
high standard of scholarship, and not neglecting
basketball, track, or baseball. XVe also contribut-
ed to the News.
One great event of the year was the pub'ica-
tion of the March issue of the News by the lun-
iors, in accordance with an established custom of
the school. This was quite remarkable, owing to
the fact that not only the staff, but practically all
the contributors as well, were members of the
junior class. One laughable feature was the fail-
ure of the staff, after three attempts, to secure
a creditable picture. Another source of pride to
the junior class was the banquet given the Seniors
by the class of '13, at the Osburn hotel. A fitting
end to the year was found in the junior picnic
at Seavey's Ferry, long to be remembered by the
class of ,13 as one of the most enjoyable affairs
of our high school course.
As Seniors, we determined that our numerals
should prove not bad, but good luck, to the class
of '13, and that we would outdo our brilliant rec-
ord of the past three years. Hugh Ford was
chosen class president, Eunice Foster, vice presi-
dent g Ruth Roche, secretary, Harold Turner,
treasurer, and Harmon Northrup, editor.
Vyle again won the inter-class football cham-
pionship in a close game between the Sopho-
mores and Seniors, and proved our further inter-
est in the game by appearing in force at Salem to
help cheer on our team to victory. XVhen the
Dramatic Club was organized, the majority of
the places were filled by Seniors, and in the re-
organization of the literary societies, the Seniors
were conspicious for their numbers and enthus-
iasm. Also, three of the Senior girls won dis-
tinction in debate. NVith very little disagreement,
the class succeeded in choosing the Senior pins,
of which we are very proud, and which were or-
dered in time to be worn during the entire sec-
NYe came off with flying colors in the exam-
inations, keeping up our consistently high schol-
arship record, and now are midway through our
last semester in the dear old Eugene High. Not-
withstanding the work 'entailed by Senior theses
and other forms of torture, several Senior took
leading parts in "Sylvia,'l the operetta given on
March 8 by the Glee Club, assisted by the Boys,
Chorus and Orchestra. On March 14, a masque
party was held by the Senior class at the home of
Dorothy XYheeler. XVith the exception of those
few who were so unfortunate as to be absent,
the class spent a most delightful evening, under
the efficient chaperonage of Miss Dinsmore and
XVe all succeeded in posing satisfactorily for
our pictures, so much of the interest in that sub-
ject has died out and we turn our thoughts else-
where. Some of the class of ,Ig are training daily
on the cinder path, others are planning for a final
season in baseball. Still others are aspiring to
the path of.glory by way of the Senior play, "The
Fifteenth of january," which will be produced
under the direction of Mr. Curtis. Later come
the graduation festivities, then-the end.
Wie will have become part of the past, not of
the present, of the Eugene High School, and We
will look back, fondly remembering those pleas-
ures so dear to us now, which will seem so doubly
dear in the future, so that

enior Class Prop ecy
june 1, 2013
Being now at the age of I25 years and feeling
that I should like to see some of my former class-
mates of IQI3, I secured permission of jupiter last
week to visit the Infernal Regions of Pluto for a
Accordingly I set out for the abode of the Oracle
of Delphi to secure the pass-word by which I was
to enter the gates of Hades for my most immemor-
ial visit. I found that theposition of the ancient
oracle had, upon her death been ably filled by Eliza-
beth Hales, on account of her ability to talk without
betraying any hint of her meaning. I was delighted
to see her and after a short chat, she gave me the
As I was about to cross the Styx I noticed some-
thing familiar in the attitude of Old Charon, the
ferryman. On close examination I found him to be
lno other than 'fDoc" Kellems, who had been given
Charon's place on account of his ability as an oars-
man, gained by frequent practice on the mill race
in Eugene. just as we were leaving the shore three
dishevelled figures ran down to us and implored
"Doc" to allow them to pass over-these figures
I scarcely recognized, but Charon told me they were
Paul Green, Harold Wells and Hugh Ford, who
were to be detained on this side of the Styx for
loo years from their death because they did not have
the price of the ferry fare across the Styx. Gut of
compassion for them, I gave them three Lincoln
pennies-the fare for the trip-and Charon grud-
ingly gave them a place in his boat.
On reaching the other side, I met the Fruies,
Arlie Matlock, Ruth Pierce and Mildred Meresdorf.
Passing on further, I beheld the Fates, Martha
and Dorothy Andrews and Frances Shoemaker.
just before reaching Pluto's throne, I passed Blind
justice, Zetta Mitchell. Pluto afterwards told me
in confidence that these women performed their
tasks much more satisfactorily than the original
goddesses had done.
On approaching the throne room, I heard two
hearty laughs and looked round to see "Pat" Koepke
and George Morehouse, attired in foolis costumes,
coming towards me. They were Pluto's court jest-
ers and many a happy hour they succeeded in giving
the King of the Underworld. Pluto received me
very kindly but told me that since the advent of the
class of IQI3, his arduous duties had been telling on
his health and he had been forced to secure an assist-
ant who now did practically all his work for him.
He had selected Kate Flegal for this responsible
position at the suggestion of Tanjor Black, the gen-
eral manager of Tartarous and the chief advisor of
his majesty. Pluto also told me that as many of
the old gods and goddesses had succumbed under
their heavy duties, he had been obliged to put others
in their places. Floyd Ross, Otto Ross, Carson Big-
bee and Roy West were the attendants and advisors
of his majesty, Roy Vifest being his treasurer and
special messenger. These men were chosen on ac-
count oif their athletic prowess. Persephone, I found
had chosen Marjory Williaiiis, Margaret Spangler
and Frances Mann as her ladies in waiting. e
I was next conducted to the Elysian Fields,
which was presided over by Ruth Vtfestfall. The first
sight which met my eyes was an old man running
after butterflies. It was Harold Turner. To the
left I noticed a Beauty Parlor and on entering I
found it to be under the management of Blanche
Roylance and Vivien Mesenger. Besides this busi-
ness, they were also the designers of the court cos-
tumes of her majesty and her ladies in waiting.
Vivien informed me of the fact that her majesty was
a frequent visitor at the parlor and that her ever
blooming beauty was largely due to a patent pre-
paration of hers, "Peroxide" After bidding adieu
to these ladies and wishing them all my good luck,
I passed on with my guide till I came to a beautiful
grove. In the distance I heard strains of heavenly
msuic and on approaching nearer I found it to be
a celestial choir led by Jessie Dobie. The accompani-
ment was played by Miriam Tinker, on the harp,
and by Margaret Pratt, on the violin. The members
of the choir were Dorothy W'heeler, Vera Der,
flinger, Zona Vernon, Dorothy Prairie, Willette
Moore, Reigh Ernst, Neil Ford, Harold Sexton,
Ray Vlfells and Neil Purkeson. Passing on, I met
a group of children laughing and dancing under the
trees. They were attended by Gladys Asher, Velma
Cook and Cecile McAlister, who had received their
training for this work in the public schools of Ore-
gon. As I passed them I came upon two lovers
strolling along near the banks of the Lethe-F rank
Scaiefe and Ruth Roche. My first impulse was to

hide, for I feared Frank would ask me for a write-
up for the f'Hades Herald," but when I stopped for
a word with them. he told me that he had resigned
and given his position to Flora Hansel, whom I
met shortly afterwards, sauntering down a shady
lane with Rev. Gaunt, whom I remembered as a
studious junior, who was in the habit of spending
his spare time asking Miss Kinsey if slang expres-
sions were classical allusions. VValking farther, I
came to a candy store and ice cream parlor, presided
over by Eileen Dill, Ethel Purdy and Myra McFar-
land. At the soda counter, I saw jim Faubian and
Eunice Foster. They told me that after long de-
liberation on the subject they had decided that they
I had now reached the river which separates
Paradise from Tartarus, and as I crossed the bridge
into the region of eternal punishment, I took a last
look at the beautiful land I was leaving. Standing
on the bank with their arms intertwined were Lu-
cile Cook and Gladys Fisher, the two inseparables,
who had lived and died together, and were now en-
As I passed into the realm of torture, my ears
were greeted by fearful wails and moans. My cour-
age forsook me at first, but gritting my teeth and
clenching my fists, I went on, determining to "see
Hades" to the bitter end. First I saw "jim" Furrow
and Ellwyn Rutherford trying to fill a bottomless
cask with water. XVhen I asked their crime I was
told that while in the Elysian fields they had la-
mented their lot, preferring hard work on earth to
idleness in Paradise. Since it was impossible to
send them back to earth. Manager Black had done
the next best thing and had assigned them an end-
less task. Mary O'Farrel and jessie Hartley were
in Tartarus, too, but as visiting missionaries among
the stricken sinners. Next I came to a steep hill.
Here I saw Harmon Northrup busily engaged in
rolling stones up the hill. On earth he had been a
politician and had robbed so many widows and or-
phans that Pluto had decreed that he should be as-
signed the job formerly held by Sisyphus. Farther
up the hill my eyes beheld a horrible sight. XVayne
Barbour was chained, and over his head was a huge
rock which threatened to fall at any moment. This
punislnnent was meted out to him because at one
time he thought he was President of Mexico and
tried to get tl1e people to bow down to him. After
having witnessed these terrible sights I thought I
had seen everything that was to be seen in Hades.
but I was mistaken. just at the boundary between
'Ilartarus and the castle grounds of Pluto, CI had
been traveling in a circlej. was a stalwart figure
standing in chin-deep in budweiser. Above his
head and just out of his reach was the branch of a
tree bearing pretzels, dill pickles and limburger
cheese. From the famished look on his face and the
valiant but vain eforts to drink the budweiser and
grasp the pretzels, it was plain to all beholders that
the poor fellow was dying of hunger and thirst with
the means of appeasing them under his very nose,
as it were, and yet unable to gratify his desire.
Readers, it grieves me to tell you, but the victim of
this terrible fate was Walter Carl, our well-known
story-teller, who was sentenced to this punishment
for flirting with two girls at once. I never found
out who the girls were.
This last horrible scene had made me thirsty
so my guide led me back to the castle where her
majesty. Persephone, ordered her cup-bearers, Mary
Borin, Grace Neff and Naomi Hoskins, to serve us
with ambrosia made from, rose-petals and water
from the river Lethep My journey had taken sev-
eral hours, and it was now growing dark so I bade
my host and hostess goodby after thanking them
heartily for their kindness to me. I was ferried back
to earth again by "Charon" Kellems, and I thought
as I left him that it would not be many more years
until I should make Hades my own dwelling place.
On looking back over my trip I though that even
if our class has not all attained to the ranks of the
blessed, at least we have succeeded in gaining fame,
if not for our goodness, at least for our misdeeds.

A Senior s Lament
Wk en you see your class a, leaving
And you yourself must stay-
XVhen you see the joyful faces
And the happy-hearted way,
Of those who've been your class mates,
Since you entered nineteen-nine.
Is it wonder you are saddened
And just sit around and pine?
Yes, at last I've come to realize
That I'm in the flunker's row,
And may only sit and watch you
As from this old school you go.
Yet, I hope you'll be unconscious,
Of the heart aches that I feel,
My regrets and lamentations
I will try hard to conceal.
Yet I know 'twould make things brighter
On your graduation night,
VV hen the way ahead looks sunny
And the world seems to delight-
If yould whisper just a message
Of regret, to such as I-
XVl1o would surely be where you are,
But Dame Fortune passed us by.

The remarkable success of the operetta
'ASylvia" was one of the events of the year IQIZ-
IQIS. Its success speaks well for Miss Sullivan.
The play itself is a delightful little pastoral-
Sylvia, tired of her betrothed. wanders into a hay-
field and meeting a farmer's daughter they mas-
querade one for the other.
The companions of Betty. the farmer's daugh-
ter, try to find her and meet with the farm lads
and half-promise to meet them later in the even-
ing. The girls meet Prince Tohhytum and be-
seige him to know what the weather will be. He
indignantly refuses and informs them who he is
and they apologize. Ile accepts their apology
and offers to allow them to kiss him on the cheek.
They pretend to accept hut instead pelt him with
flowers until he escapes.
Sylvia and Betty return and successfully fool
their new lovers-their adventures with their ex-
changed lovers soon tire them and they decide
to resume their real characters.
This simple plot, with its many musical num-
bers and solos, gave the Girl's Glee Club, assist-
ed by the Boys' Glee Cluh, an excellent oppor-
tunity to display their talent.

Looking back over the past year we find that
the Sophomores have held a very important place
in school life. lYe have taken a leading part in
all school activities and our men were well rep-
resented in basket-ball, football and track. We
are proud to claim such noteworthy men as
Bounds, Broder and Barclay. Our girls also have
manifested an unusual interest in the gym work
and that their efforts were not in vain was clearly
shown by the gymnastic demonstration.
Along musical lines the Sophoinores, as usual,
have come to the front. Our president, Albert
Gillette, took one of the leading roles in the op-
eretta "Sylvia,' as De Lacy. He impersonated
the part well and the audience was not slow in
showing appreciation of his excellent solo work.
Nlany of the Sophomore girls also. were promin-
ent in the chorus work.
.Xgain along intellectual lines we have fea-
tured in the literary work. lValdo Seman, one
of the most prominent members of the boys lit-
erary society, carried off the honors in a debate
with the upper classnien. Mr. Sen1an's excellent
work in this debate promises, for him, a grand
career along this line.
XYe feel that our work, as a class, has been
very successful, and that under the following of-
ficers we have succeeded in helping to uphold the
high standard of our school:
President ............... . . Albert Gillette
Vice President . . , .... Cleone Carroll
Secretary ..... . . Florence Sherman
'llreasurer . .... Mary Gillette
Editor ......... . . Genevieve Dickey
Sergeant-at-Arms . . ..... Paul Dimm

Lives of Seniors all remind us,
That we're still a little, f'green,',
But our tint is swiftly fading,
As, perhaps, you may have seen.
It has always been the idea in the Eugene
High School to make sport of the Freshmen.
They have always been laughed at and pushed
around in corners or anywhere else. just to keep
them out of the way. Just why, no one knows
or no one cares.
Of course the Freshmen take all of this as
part of their learning. and think very little of it.
But as to our real learning, we know that we have
accomplished all that can be expected of any
XVe have kept our eyes open and have seen
all that the upper classmen of this year have
done, and we feel that we will stand in their
places without fail, when our time comes.
This year the Freshmen have stepped to the
front more than any other Freshmen class in the
history of the Eugene High School. NYe have
learned much more than the things which we
ground out of books. We organized our class,
entered into the societies and took part in many
other High School activities, which has been a
pleasure to us.
And now, that summer is here, we are sorry
to have to stop our interests in the High School
and to bid farewell to the Seniors who depart

The first literary society in the Eugene High
School was a mixed society founded when school
was held in the old Court House. In 1900 the
Amicitians organized with Alla hlosier as presi-
dent. This society was for boys only, A feel-
ing of intense rivalry soon grew up through the
holding of joint debates. The Hypatian as the
girls' society was known, opposed the Amicitians
solidly but the Amicitians dominated after a
struggle covering a number of years. The Pro-
sonians came into existence during this time but
their aim was more for the culture of social
rather than literary arts. After a few years this
society died a quiet death, most of its leading
members having graduated.
The Amicitians continued growing steadily in
numbers and influence, its membership consisting
of many of the most prominent students and ath-
letes. The Amicitians stands for fellowship
among the students through the interesting and
educative weekly programs, An awkward and
unsophisticated recruit after a year or so in the
society is able to talk before an audience with
comparative ease and comfort. Many of the
schools debaters received their first training in
the Amicitians. The :Xmicitians is the best lit-
erary society in Eugene High as is shown by its
long existencegand the good work it is doing at
the present time.

The past school year has been one of triumph
and progress in all High School activities. Many
new enterprises have been taken up and several
old ones reviewed and given new life. One of
these. and the one that has gained the greatest
increase of interest and prominence. is the very
important but sadly neglected. literary work.
One of the first groups to respond to the ur-
gent call for increased literary activity, was the
Sfiphoinore-Freshmen boys. XYith great zeal
and entliusiasm they entered into this new under-
taking determined to make it a success.

The outcome of the contest was that the girls

Nothing more of any importance happened

and are rightly proud of it.
Since, in former years, there has been only
one literary society, you can easily see the enor-
mous progress that has been made along this line
in the past few months. It is certainly encourag-
ing to those who realize the vast importance of
this activity, to see it so rapidly taken up and
pushed ahead by the student body as a whole.
Great efficiency is being attained by many of our
members and we expect Eugene High School to
turn out some of the best debaters and speakers of
the times, who in latter years can look back and
say that they had received their start from the

The Eugene High School Y. XV. C. QX. is one
of the three high school HY. VV.'s" in Qregon.
The object of the association is to promote a
spirit of frienrlliness and fellowship among the
memhers and to make the Christian spirit an

pose this year-the weekly meetings have heen

speakers for some of our meetings this year.
Among these was Mrs. lilteher, general secretary
of the lvniversity Y. XY. C. AX.. who spoke to us
on the observance of Christmas in Germanymthis
was thoroughly enjoyecl by all present. Another
very interesting speaker whom we had with us
was Kliss Deyoe, a returnefl missionary from
China, who spoke to us ahout the gi rls' college in
Fow Chow, China, where she had been a teach-
er. She mafle her talk especially interesting by
telling us all about Moo Uwan, the Chinese girl
who hail helpecl her to learn the Chinese lan-
guage. ln .Xpril the time of our weekly meetings
was ehangetl from 3 :45 to the noon hour and this
arrangement proyecl to he so satisfactory that
from then on, we have brought our lunches on
Y. XY. clay and have had lunch together. followed
hy our regular meeting. :Xt our first micl-clay
meeting we hacl the goocl fortune to have with
us Miss Meyher, a former missionary from China,
who is now at the mission heaflrluarters in Seattle.
She was flresserl in a Chinese costume and gave
us an impersonation of a real Chinese girl whom
she hail known. Xliss Xlevher was so interesting

Chinese girl herself, but by a charming American.
The Y. W. C. A. is sorry that theientire school
could not have heard Miss Meyher, for she is a
splendid elocutionist and would have delighted
The activity of the the Y. VV .C. A. has not,
however been confined to our weekly meetings
alone-at the first of the year, a reception was
held for all of the high school girls, in Miss
Comings, room. Punch and wafers were served,
several speeches were given by different faculty
members and a general good time was had by all.
This was the beginning of a membership contest
led by XVilletta Moore, Gladys Rugh and Frances
Shoemaker. At the close of the contest, the win-
ning side, Frances Shoemaker's, was banqueted
by the losers at the Presbyterian church. The
girls have also given several candy sales during
the year which were enjoyed by the whole school.
At the end of the first semester, a Valentine Party
was given to the Y. VV. by the retiring cabinet
at the home of Kate Flegal. A most enjoyable
time was had by all present, especially at the close
of the party when "pink ice cream," cooky
hearts and punch were served.
The Y. VV. C. A. play also, is a function
which is looked forward to by the entire High
School. Last year the Y. W. C. A. play was a
great success and we hope this year that we shall
have even greater success. Departing from our
usual plan the Y. VV. C. A. decided that instead of
giving one long play, we should give two short
ones. The plays. "A Man's Coiceu and "Miss
Parkington," were selected by our coach, Miss
Comings, because they are interesting and catchy.
The casts for the plays are as follows.
For "A Man,s Voice:', Helen Hall, Lois
Green, Clara Doughty, Jeanette Kletzing, Anna
Taylor and Lucile Cook, and for "Miss Parking-
ton:" Gladys Fisher, Frances Shoemaker, joy
Iudkins and Henry Howe. VVe were very for-
tunate in securing Miss Comings as our coach.
She is a very able one, as was shown by her
splendid work in the Y. XV. play last year.
The Y. VV. officers for the past year have been

On looking over our achievements of the past
year, we do not feel boastful in saying that the
Y. VV. C. A. has accomplished more in different
lines than any other high school organization
has. VV e have combined the dramatic, the social,
the culinary and the spiritual phases of our life
under one society and our one hope is that the
Y. XV. C. A. will continue to be as beneficial to
the high school and as important a factor in the
high school life in years to come as it has been in
the past year.

The years of 1912-13 have been most pros-
perous and enjoyable for the Mendellsohn Glee
In place of the cantata usually given by the
club, the girls put on a little musicale comedy or
operetta entitled 'iSylviaf' It was entirely new
work for most of the members of the cast but
under the direction of Miss Sullivan and with the
help of the E. H. S. orchestra, also under Miss
Sullivan's management. "Sylvia" was very suc-
cessful both dramatically and financially.
VVith a part of the proceeds from the play the
Glee Club gave a banquet followed by a dance
for the boys and orchestra, who helped in "Syl-
via." The rest of the money is being kept for
new music and for furnishing the music room in
the new high school.
At the present time the girls are practicing
some music for the public school concert which
Miss Sullivan is undertaking. After this concert
the club will begin work on Commencement
But the most important of all accomplished
is that the club through Miss Sullivan, has taught
the girls to love, appreciate and read better music.

EDITORIAL I I
It is with mixed feelings we realize that our
High School life is rapidly drawing to a close-
partly of joy, for it marks an era of accomplish-
ment, and partly of sorrow, for'it means the
breaking of old associations, for some the sepa-
rating of classmates, perhaps never to meet again.
Only a Senior can best understand his feelings
for E. H. S.-he has entered as a meek little
Freshman, gazed awe-struck at the "mighty
Seniors' who stuttered, stage-struck though an
ardous speech-became imbued with that true
HT willn Eugene High School spirit and has
boosted with all his-might for his school. :Xll
through his four years of toil and play the hazy.
meshy cords of school associations have strength-
ened and tightened until their sudden severing
brings 'us up to a realization that is bitter-sweet.
Some of us must go from our preliminary
work to fight the 'lhard fight"--to strive for our
assigned positions in life's play. May all the
gods of luck, and their like. be especially helpful
to the class of IQI2-IQTS-110i that we especially
need help-look at our High School record-
but that we may reach success as quickly as pos-
sible. Life is too short to delav.
Some of us will continue our studies, bound
still closer by our long continued companionship.
And, "in fi11iSU when we are old and Udream
dreams" and our class of IQI2-IQI3 is scattered
and thinned, remember, with a satisfaction that
is old age's privilege, your class of 1913.
The New High School
That educational Eugene is slowly but surely
recovering from the blow dealt her by the defeat
of the school bonds bill at last year's election, is
self-evident-the movement on foot to secure the
new school site is the first material step.
The reaction is a healthy one and the people
are considering the question in a fair and un-
prejudiced manner, and the subject is not one to
moralize over, it is an actual necessity brought
on by the rapid growth of a young city, and the
building of the school must be done with a far-
seeing eye towards Eugene's future.
The present building is not satisfactory, for.
in the first place, and this reason alone should be
enough-if is Weitz nom' 1110! large enough for its
fvzrjvils. The schedule had to be rearranged and
shortened, for the classes were too big to accom-
modate in one room even with pupils sitting on
the window sills.
All available space for recitation rooms has
been enlisted, even the reception and the confer-
The heating and Ventilating are unsatisfac-
tory-the school resembling a globe in its range
of heat, ranging anywhere from 55 degree to 85
degrees Fahrenheit and upon this injury is added
the insult of poor ventilation-freeze us if you
wish but at least give us pure air-the only
method by which some rooms may keep any heat
whatever is to keep all the doors and windows
closed-this with a faulty Ventilating system and
30 to 40 pupils per room.
And if these are a few of the conditions, and
I might add-sometimes stray bits of plaster il-
lustrate Newton's law of universal gravitation-
what will be the condition next year to teach and
house them will be an impossibility-a new high
school can be the only solution of the question.
The Year in RBVTCW
The year of IQI2-1913 is a banner year in the
history of Eugene High School in every respect.
The enrollment has grown out of all proportion
to that of the preceding years and the enthusiasm
with which the students, new and old, took up
their studies and enterprises from thefirst betok-
ened success. The curriculum of the school has
been enlarged and many new departments have
been added and the scope of the old ones enlarged
through necessity. The percentage of "Hunks"

has diminished in the same proportion that the
school has grown, The teachers are the best pos-
sible in their work. the courses taught are the
practical and desirable ones and the only draw-
back on the fullest growth and development of the
school was the school building itself, which is
small and unsuitable to the needs of the school.
This one drawback we trust will be remedied in
the near future.

ed have shown exceedingly good records and

To the ignoramous there appears to be a
waste of timber that is positively sinful. Oregon.
it is true, has a seemingly unending supply of
timber, but it is not late enough even at the pres-
ent time to take strenuous means to preserve
timber. Ninety percent. of Oregon's wealth is in
her timber and the reckless waste of a country's
resources is bound to bring want in a future time.
The cutting away of valuable timber and
simply burning for the opening thus gained is
an old-fashioned practice even yet practiced in
some localities. The value of timber in saving
a country from floods as now demonstrated by
science is simple to everyone. lt is no uncommon
sight even in the near locality of Eugene to see

February, 1912, marked the introduction of
the Domestic Science course in the Eugene High
School. Owing to the crowded conditions of the
high school building, occasioned by the registra-
tion of 6oo students, it was necessary to erect a
two-roomed building adjacent to the main struc-
Here the classes began with an enrollment of
about ninety girls. As this was the first school

and friends of the school offered encouragement
In September classes in Domestic Art were
organized, and a second instructor elected to aid
in the Domestic Science and Art departments.
At present there are 160 girls enrolled in the
cookery, sewing and home problems classes. The
cookery and sewing classes meet twice a week
for double periods, additional time being spent in
reference reading, available through selected list

The work in cookery comprises a study of the
five food groups, including source, manufacture,
relative food value, digestibility and preparation,
for the table.
During the second year emphasis is laid on
the planning of menus and the serving of meals.
The work is facilitated by a cozy dining room
thoroughly equipped with linen, silver, glass and
china. This together with the equipment for the
cookery laboratory was a gift to the school, the
donor being Mr. F. L. Chambers, a leading hard-
ware man of Eugene.
Occasions for experience of a practical na-
ture has been afforded the students by the prepar-
ation and serving of banquets to the Commercial
Club, Y. M. C. A. and smaller organizations.
Invalid cookery, infant diet and simple bac-
teriology are also included in the course.
The oak-topped tables of the cookery labora-
tory accommodate twenty pupils with gas jets
for each, together with other individual equip-
ment. No fee is required, students furnishing

"ln the spring ai ymmf mm's fancy--
The above happy scene strikingly illustrates
the climax of a period of self denial by one of the
most popular of Eugene High School's faculty.
For lo! these many years, in fact, ever since the
publication of Dr. Yak and his famous automo-
bile, R. D. Fisher felt a strange stirring in his
heart, at first slight, but as time passed by and
the Sundays passed with their supplements, the
yearning grew to a great and powerful desire to
own a really truly automobile. He dreamed
dreams of honking past terrified women who
would gaze in horror at this speed demon. But
soon a gradual change took place-his air castles
softened and he saw his likeness seated beside
his dream ideal-one hand on his trusty wheel,
the other-well anyway he would have his feet
on the excelerator and brake. They would first
parade the beautiful streets of Eugene before an
admiring crowd then would hie to the highways
and byways of the country, and glide swiftly and
quickly over miles and miles of scenery. So he
quit his dreaming and came to the practical-
from the bountiful salary given he laid aside a
monthly mite which grew and prospered in
the wonderful fashion until, Gadzooks! his ideal
was in his grasp. Vtlhen news of this historical
event reached the ears of the students and faculty
it was a subject of much discussion. Bought an
auto! XVho, R. D? Aw, giwan! This type of
English or words to its effect, were even ex-
pressed by the faculty and a flittering of excite-
ment and a 'lblossoming outl' of the feminine
faculty was especially evident.
One aspect of this happy event gives a sor-
rowful future-it is destroying the peace and
quiet which has hitherto existed with the faculty.
The favored ones are causing pang's in the hearts
of the others that they cannot help but show. But
another and far more important event is looked
forward to by the students as a fitting climax to
a life of self-denial. lt is-well-the News will
shortly open a "Marriage Column."

"Best play this winter!" As good as any
,the University has givenf' and similar expressions
iwere those heard the evening the Dramatic Club
,presented our play, "A Scrap of Paper." This is
'the first year of the Dramatic Club and we have
,covered ourselves with glory.
Last semester, as a trial to see what we could do,
we gave a farce, "Obstinacy" in the High School
Assembly. Those who took part in this were XValter
Carl, Margaret Spangler, Jessie Dobie, Henry
Howe, Juanita VVilkins and Paul Dimm. lt was a
success in every way and so we decided to go on
with our work. Miss Janet Young, our coach, se-
lected the French comedy-drama, of Palgrave
Simpson, "A Scrap of Paperf' for our big play. lt
is a very mature play, all of the .characters except
two being represented as over 25 years of age.
However, with the able assistance of Miss Young
and Professor Reddie, of the University department
of public speaking, we were able to present the play
creditably. The cast for the play consisted of Jessie
Dabie, XValter Carl, Juanita XVilkins, Tanjor Black,
Martha Beer, Paul Dimm, Margaret Pratt, Harold
Turner, Vera Derflinger, Howard Merriam, Vivien
Kellems and Karl Keopke.
The members of the Dramatic Club are: Juanita
VVilkins, Jessie Dobie, Margaret Spangler, Marjory
Williams, Margaret Pratt, Vera Derflinger, Vivien
Kellems, Martha Beer, XValter Carl, Henry Howe,
Cachet Thurklesen, Virgil Vickers, Paul Dimm,
Harold Turner, Tanjor Black, Karl Keopke and
Howard Merriam, regular members, and Grace
Bingham, Frances Mann and Dora Francis, asso-l
ciate members. The faculty member is Mr. Curtis.
The officers for the past year have been:

Margaret Spangler . . . . . . Secretary
Paul Dinim ........ . . . . . . Treasurer
Martha Beer ......................... Editor
XYhile we have broken into a new field among
the high school activities, we have shown that it has
not been in vain. lVe have given histrionics a start
this year which we hope will gain impetus as the
years go on, until it becomes the principal high
school activity. We have brought to light undis-
covered talent which otherwise might have never
been found out.
Although we have spent many weary hours in
study and practice for our productions, it has been
worth while, and we feel that all our work would
have been useless had it not been for the untiring
efforts of our coach, Miss Young.
I might go on to tell of our party at the Alpha
Tau Omega house in honor of Miss Young, but
this event will be found under its proper heading.
'Twas only a gracious "Thank youf'
That she said to me that morn,
Yet somehow it brightened up the day
As jewels do a maid adorn.
After that most every morning
I'd pass her on my way,
And always her pleasant 'fThank you,"
Seemed to drive my care's away.
Do you think she was very youthful
NVith beauty, and strong and fair.
With eyes of the light of the morning,
And a heavenly crown of hair?
Oh no-she was plain and crippled,
And a. vender of flowers was she,
Yet the light on her face was heaven
NVhen she said "Thank you" to me.

. High School Music
One of the important questions that is brought
to the attention of the teaching force today is
music in our High Schools.
VV e measure our lives too much from a com-
mercial standpoint. Are history and literature
taught as stepping-stones to better living or are
they taught as college entrance requirements? XV6:
all have dreams of attaining a certain stand-
ard and our natural impulse is to reach it by
means of tl1e shortest route and least time ex-
pended. lf these subjects are taught as college
entrance requirements, then we blind ourselves
to the true worth of living. VVe gain our goal
but the aesthetic and love of the beautiful have
been stunted and cramped, we have lost the
greatest of all arts that of making others happy.
lf, however, we find the aesthetic in history
and literature how much more, and to a greater
degree, will it be found in music, art and physical
training. All must admit that life, in order to be
well spent, must be supported.by the sublime and
ethical, Can we then satisfy our inherent long-
ings with the limited amount of aesthetic tem-
perament culled from such subjects that border
only on the ethical?
Dignity will be added to music in our High
Schools when placed on the same credit system
as history and the Sciences. School men of to-
day must admit that heretofore music has been ne-
glected. In order to bring about ideal condi-
tions there must be some definite courses offered
students whereby they may become proficient.
Such courses consisting of sight reading classes,
choruses, musical appreciation, history of music
Music is one of the most social of all arts.
XV hen studied in school, all have the same oppor-
tunity. Is there a grander or nobler sight than
to see or hear our young people adding his or her
share to entertainments, or listening to three or
four hundred voices in one grand chorus?
It is the aim of our present High School sys-
tem to give to music a standing in our curricu-
lum. A standard which will be the means of
bringing to our boys and girls, music not only
from a technical standpoint, but music for the
deeper inspirations and joys.

The Senior Play, 6'The Fifteenth of January,"
bids fair to go down in the history of the school's
successful enterprises. XV ith its accustomed
energy and enthusiasm the Class of 1913 selected
the manager and the coach of the play. Two bet-
ter men for the positions could not have been se-
lected. Mr. Bigbee has already shown his ability
to cope with his duties, and Mr. Curtis, the coach,
deserves great credit for the results he has ac-
complished. Having one of the largest casts
that the school has ever staged, it has required a
large amount of work to give the individual
members the points in which they require help.
No one except the members of the cast can realize
just how much patience and time is required in
coaching a play. The members of the cast are:
Lieut. Jack Wilson, army officer on fur-
lough .............. Ellwyn Rutherford
Ted Allen, an assistant professor . .Frank Scaiefe

EBATE during the past season of IQI3-I3
was not successful as far as state cham-
pionship was concerned. Qwing to the
failure of the Student Body to call an
election, the manager was not elected until late in
the season. On account of this, the teams were
not chosen until a short time before the first de-
bate, in which they were barely defeated by the
team from Springfield High School.
In all probability, the teams would have
climbed to the state championship this year, be-
ing composed of some of the best debaters the
Eugene High School has ever had, if they had
had the necessary time for proper preparation of
Miss Ruth Westfall, the leader of the affirm-
aftive team has splendid ability as a speaker, and
as for convincing argument, she has no equal in
any class in the school. She has taken a great
interest in debating this year, and we are sure
that a better leader than Miss XVestfall, could not
have been found. g
Margaret Pratt, the leader of the negative
team, is a student from East Side High School
llll1116fl17OllS. Although a new students, Bliss
Pratt, upon her entrance here, imineliately ab-
sorbed a very large amount of E. H. S. spirit
and became an enthusiastic debater. Judging the
past by the present, Miss Pratt must have had
quite a lot of experience in debate work before
coming to dear old Eugene High School.
Miss Martha Beer, the colleague of the nega-
tive team is a brilliant sepaker. Miss Beer, who
is one of three Seniors on the teams, has taken a
great amount of time from her other work and
worked hard gathering material and preparing
it for the debates. Those who know Miss Beer
will agree with me when I say that this is one
time that you can not judge a person's work by
"Shels small, but Oh! Mylu VVe hope that
she will keep up her interest in debate when she
enters the State University and that she will do
the E. H. S. credit by helping win debates for
the Lf. of O.

e Sidney errill Cup ontest
ln 1911 Mr. Terrill, in honor of his wife, who
had introduced sewing into the Eugene public
schools, presented a silver cup to Eugene High
School. This cup is a silver loving cup and is to be
kept on the high school records and the names of
the winning contestants engraved upon it each year.
Mr. Terril in doing this hoped to incite among the
high school students an interest in oratory. This is
a contest for both boys and girls and everyone in
high school may participate except those who have
won the contest. Since IQI3 all Freshmen are coin-
pelled to take part in the big try outs. Two are then
chosen to represent each class. The conditions are
that tl1e selection, memorized, must be in prose and
there must be nothing of a humorous nature. This
is quite a11 advantage over many such contests in
which the contestants are required to write their own
ln 191 1 the first contest took place. There was
not as much interest shown in the first contest as in
later ones. because it was a new activity.
' The speakers this year were Jessie Dobie, Gladys
Fisher, Bernice Holmes, Amy Hurlburt, Vivien
Kellenis, Vera Moffat, Merle Stearns and Ruth Til-
Miss Dobie won the first honors, Miss Tilmont
second and Miss Kellenis third. In the boys' con-
test were ,Xrthur Moses, Henry Howe, Paul Dimm,

out. However, the ones taking part were: James

A jolly crowd of the younger high school girls compliment to Miss janet Young, who successfully
gave a very attractive dance on the night of Friday
April 18. The home of Mr. and Mrs. C. S. iVil-
-liams was prettily decorated for the occasion.
Boughs of Oregon grape were banked in the fire
places and corners of the room which were bright-
ened by clusters of spring blossoms. Large buter-
flies of various hues were suspended from the ceil-
ing, and teh whole softened by light shades of pink
produced an effect in pretty harmony with the first
days of spring. The guests of the evening were
the Misses Ruth Roche, Eunice Foster, Nella King,
Katherine Dobie, jeanette Calkins, Florence Sher-
man, Genevieve Dickey, Dorothy Dunn, Mamie
Gilette, Melba XVilliams, Mildred Bagley, and the

A jolly afternoon of the historionic triumph re-
- cently scored by the High School Dramatic club in
its presentation of "A Scrap of Paper" was the sur-
prise event staged by the club members as a fitting
piloted the aspiring thespians through the laby-
rinths of cues and stage business. The surprise
production was the offering of Thursday night,
April 17, at the Alpha Tau Qmega chapter house.
The members of the cast were all properly rehearsed
in the respective roles and the impromptu climax
came off without a hitch. Miss Young was SL1111-
moned to the scene on some pretext and when she
arrived the stage was in total darkness. But sud-
denly the switch was turned on and the central
figure of the serio-comic conspiracy apepared in the
spot-light with the talent enacting their respective
roles as merry jesters. It was a complete surprise
and the ensuing merriment and pleasure was un-
bounded. The rooms were profusely adorned with
purple and white streamers. The fire place was
banked in ivy intermingled with wild Easter lilies.
In a neat speech Miss juanita VVilkins thanked the
members of the cast for their clever portraitures of
the roles assigned them in the production, the many
people outside of the club who aided in so many
ways. and closed by presenting Miss Young with a
box of candy with a check for twenty-five dollars
neatly folded in with the morsals of sweet-meats in
recognition of the recipient. The evening was whiled
away in tripping the mystic measures of the dance.
The committee in charge of the arrangements of
this charming affair consisted of Miss juanita
lVilkins, Miss jessie Dobie, Mr. Paul Dimm and
Mr. Harold Turner. Following were the partici-
pants of the affair: Mr. and Mrs. Frederic Thorne,

The football team this season was the best
that the liugene lligh School has developed in
many years. The team won every game in which
it engaged by large scores totaling 204 points to
6 against us. XYe defeated Salem, the first time
a victory has been wrested from either team on
their own field. Due praise must be accorded
Mr. ,lohnson for the sacrifice of time and energy
he has given to the coaching of the players. Per-
sisting i11 his efforts. zealously he has devoted
himself to teaching green-horns the rudiments of'
football and perfecting the finer points of a vet-
eran. Anyone who knows the twists and turns
of a good team will say that Mr. Johnston as
coach is the best yet.
On election day. lfugene met the heretofore
invincible Astoria eleven whose title was undisa
puted having defeated both Lincoln and Jefferson
Highs of Portland. The field was wet and slip-
pery which did not hinder the boys from running
up a score of zo to o.
The team took passage for Salem on Neveni-
ber 16, accompanied by many enthusiastic root-
ers. The Salem lads put up a strong fight as
tradition was not to be broken on their gridiron
at least if they could help it. It was a "survival
of the fittest' and we won I3 to O, after the hard-
est game of the season. The Salem High School
tendered us a most enjoyable reception in the
evening and we arrived home a tired but happy
crowd after a memorable day in the history of
athletics between the Salem and Eugene High
The last contest of the season was with Van-
couver, who had played a tie game with Astoria
earlier in the month. Vancouver has most al-
ways defeated Eugene in past years and they
were confident of doing it again. The first half
was very uninteresting and with neither side
able to score. After the intermission our boys
went in the game with a determination to uphold

The Eugene High School was represented
this year in track by one of the best teams in its
history. Mr. Johnston has again acted in the
capacity of coach and well has he filled the posi-
tion. The success of the team was largely due to
him and witlr his thorough knowledge of track
training and his faculty of handling men, he has
brought the team far above the usual standard.
Captain Bounds made some records for the
school, winning second place in the broad jump at
the Pacific Coast Tntersdiolastic Meet. first in
broad jump, open, at the Columbia Indoor meet
and the initial position at the University of Ore-
gon Interscholastic meet. Manager Titus han-

ln the state meet on the University of Oregon
campus May IO, Eugene won third place with I4
points. The track was wet and slippery, and in
so bad shape in fact that the 100 yard dash and
high hurdles were run on the center of the grid-
iron to make better time. Captain Bounds, Ross,
Tluirkelsen, VVest and Skipworth qualified in the
preliniinaries of the morning. In the afternoon
the track had become worse due to a drizzle of
rain that fell during the entire morning. The
events of the meet were carried on in good order
with so'nethinQ' doing all the time. The most
interesting race of the track meet proper, except-
ing the relay, was the 440 yard dash in which
Ross and Thurkelsen took second and third. Ross
Malarkey, the winner, to the tape and Thurkel-
sen coming down the straight away a close third
made a sensational impression on the Eugene fol-
lowers of the Qlympic sport. XVith Captain
Bounds first in the broad jump the Eugene High
School spectators could hardly restrain their en-
thusiasm and lVest's victory in the javelin came
as a fitting climax to a successful day. '4Brick"
hurled the spear 142 feet 412 inches, establishing
a new record in that event, and well has he earned
the golden medal. bv his consistent training and
perseverence. NVe all regret that the relay cup
could not be in the Eugene High School trophy
case but our boys ran a wonderful race even
though handicapped by loss of one of the regular
men. Skipworth started the relay but Malarkey
of Columbia succeeded in getting a 5 yard lead
of him, Ross and Thurkelsen narrowed down the
distance consistently and Bounds in the finish
gave Goreczky of Columbia a hard race, finish-
ing hardly a foot behind him.
Hurrah for our IQI3 Track Team.

Q apartment of Pnysical Training
'i he object of gymnastics in our schools is
primarily a hygienic oneg it is an effort to mgtin-
tain the health of the pupils at the highest possible
level, in spite of the evil influences of a too one-
sidegl mental training coupled with the sedentary
habits which usually accompany a students life.
Gymnastics do not labor merely for the future,
by enlarging and strengthening the chest, by fa-
cilitating the performance of every function, and
otherwise contributing to the general health.
Exercise acts immediately upon the state of the
body, which force it renews, and upon the nerv-
ous system, which it tempers. It has a happy
effect upon studies, because it reestablishes the
mental equilibrium and at the same time gives
the mind more vigor and elasticity.
The aim of any system of gymnastics is nec-
essarily to improve the condition of the individual
in a physical, mental and moral sense. The
German system, with its emphasis upon muscular
strength, and the Delsarle Culture, with its em-
phosies upon psychology and the training of the
will, judgment and character, are two of the
various systems taught in the schools of this
country. The Swedish system of pedagogical
gymnastics aims to harmoniously train and de-
velop all parts of the body in order that it may
be an efficient servant of the will. lt does not
propose to create great muscular strength, but
but only tends to correct faulty and incorrect
positions, the results of bad habits of standing,
sitting, or walking, so common during the grow-
ing age and in school desk life. Besides these
elements, there is a faulty educational feature-
a training of the nervous system for the exercises
used are such as the demand exactness of mus-
cular co-ordination, each movement and posi-
tion being defined in every detail. If to these we
add that most of the positions are taken in re-
sponse to a command requiring an instantaneous
execution, and when the exercises are serial, the
rhythm is kept up by the girls, own sense of
rhythm, it must follow that alertness of percep-
tion, quickness of action, a keep posture sense, a
light degree of co-ordination and power of in-
hibition-in a word, a greater volitional con-
trol will be the result of the training.
The Swedish system is in vogue, in most of
the colleges and High Schools in the United
States. The aesthetic element in the Swedish
system has not been fully developed, but essen-
tially the aim is to foster a sense of rhythm and

On leaking' over our exchange list of the past
year we find that we have a large number of high
schools represented, among them some of the best
in the lvnited States. There are many high schools
which have tleir papers in the field for the first
time and to them we extend our wishes for success
in their work.
lfxchanges are a part of a paper which is not
only a pleasure to a school but also a help. An
exchange sometimes helps to raise the standard of
a school paper where something else will not. Many
times high schools are judged by the kind of work
appearing in their papers. Thus we can see that we
should work each time to put out a better paper than
the time before. Our athletic strength and also our
literary ability is shown in a paper. As a matter
of fact many high schools which we thought little
about have made us take notice of their work
through their splendid papers.
Our exchange list has papers this year from
many of the leading states of the Lvnion, and some
from foreign countries, as. HBellerivian,,' Vevey,
Switzerland: " Boone Review," China, and one
from Juneau, Alaska, "The Totem."
In mentioning the different ones, we are bound
to put those of our own state first and we have a
greater number from Oregon than from any other

THE HIT OF THE SEASON
Three Thousand Nights in Punkville
Harry Titus, Leading Man
Why Is A Rally?"
Stage settingfAssembly Room, Eugene High School.
Time-1:30 VVednesday afternoon.
Occasion-Corvallis track meet.
Scene-Mrg Hug, seated, smiling benignantly at tableg
rises. "iVe are gathered this afternoon on a great occa-
sion, etc., etc., but tmodestlyj, other greater orators can
tell you about the meet to.norrow-1 now call on Harry
Harry goes clumping up the aisle, grinning, at the snick-
ering pupilsgstumbles on the stairs, snickering breaks into
a bawling laugh. Faces the audience, weight on one foot-
"I 'spose you-all know there's a-gon' to be a track
Speech peters out-decides to jump on the brow-beaten
"Freshmen-now is the time to show your class spirut.
-go to the game! Don't stop at buying one ticketg buy
two and take your girl"- After this usual joke, loud ap-
plause breaks forth, pupils stamp, pound their desks.
Harry smiles on in perspiring embarrassment-reaches
for his handkerchief4gives a vigorous jerk-it comes out
but also a package of Duke's Mixture, which reclines on
the floor. Harry gazes ainazedlygturns slowly to meet
the struggling smile of Mr. Hug, and walks with downcast
mien to his seat amid the joyous uproar of applause.
Soft Music-Preferably "Pipe Dreams."
. QUERY BOX
Editor's Note: Owing to our large correspondence,
there have been many queries unanswered, but to all these
we answer "Ye-sl it is quite true."
Mr. Francis Curtis: ..
My Dear Sir: I sincerely agree with you on your prob-
lem. The dam wall should not have collapsed under that
Miss Margaret Spangler:
Certainly! It is quite proper to begin a telephonic
conversation with "Hello" instead of the reverse, which in
some localities is considered quite rude.
Yes, "dear" can be subscribed if the letter is to an
Illuicfllllll-'tt l'owrie"fuI. friend.
Mr. George XY. Hug:
My Dear Sir: Yes, Morehouse is needed in the Eugene
High School-let George do it. I
Mr. Tubby XVheeler:
Yes. Dickey Birds are to be found in your locality.
Probably thc one you saw is a young one.
Miss Kathleen Fraley:
Yes. On a play like that Clubbs are always trumps.
Miss Nell Sullivan:
No. The Armstrong method has proved a positive fail-
ure in cleaning skirts.
Mr. YVallace fjanitorlz
My Dear Sir: It is quite true. janitor work is harmful
to hair growth. I recommend "Faubian's Physical Exer-
eir-s" for your case.
Edward Gray will demonstrate the swiftness and accu-
racy of the one-finger method on Slim Koch's typewriter
in the New Office, 2 P. M., Jan 89.

T0 DER VALKING PUBLIC
Meine Lieber Freunden:
I saw py der Eugene High School Buzzer last time yet
das der was a Speed King py der name of R. D. Fisher who
was making some fast time yet. but efery day you read
it in der Newspapers how der valking public vas chased
und persechuited. und beaten, und chumped upon, und
bruised, und battered, und vipt, und slapped in der face
py der treacherous devil vagons.
Now dis R. D. Fisher is a special friend of mine und
der vay der automobilious fever broke oud in him makes
der pestilence look like a mild case of measles.
In public life you know Mr. Fisher is a teacher but
avay from der glare of der feetlights he is known as Ray
D. der Speed King.
At der breakfast table formerly he vould say, Mrs.
Hug vill you please gif me a leedle more shredded sawdust
and anudder cup of coffee? but since der automobilious
fever grabbed him he now says:
"Mrs, Hugahle, turn der accelerator into der incendiary
vare der spark coil abrogates der cormucopia, und let me
haf anudder cup of gasolenef'
I vent up to der Mozack Garbage mit him der uder
day. Der garbage you know is der place ver der automo-
bubbles is kept in captifity.
YVe peeped in der door und dare snortin' mit der smell
of battle in der nost1'iIs stood "Der Red Devil" "Der Crim-
son Crusher." "Der Blue Death." f'Der Gravedigger's Joy,"
"Der Pink Peril" and "Der Rainbow Roughhousef'
Ray just vanted to hang arount dat garbage all day
und vatcli dem mankillers get fed. He said py me vun
"l+'ritz. I haf a runaboud, will you bc my guest in der
"No Ray." I sedt. "but I vill be your guest in a run-
aboud of mein own." Den I left him und I run aboud two
miles mitoud stopping. das is all I half to say aboud der
automobuckboard at present. und I hope dat Ray vill get
der medles for fastness yet.
Your lofing friendt.
