ln this, the third issue of the "Cauldron," the Senior Class of
nineteen-fourteen makes its bow to the Frankfort High School and
ln the preparation of this book, the members of the Senior
Class have not striven to reach any unattainable heights bait have
sought to give a true expression of our high school lifesits teach-
ers, pupils, spirit, and present interests. llie are not intending it
to be a textfbook altho it may be instructive in that it will instruct
many of our outside friends as to what "is and isn't" in the Franke
fort High School. lt is all that its name suggests--fa miscellany-H
what is best and happiest in our high school, little scraps of sune
shine. and bits of wit. tossed into the "Cauldron", As the witches
in 'Macbethl' with solemn chants,,cast their gruesome offerings
into their cauldron, so the witches of our various departments have
thrown their attractive offerings into ours. There they have been
spiced and stirred. and have simmered and fused over a tire of en-
thusiasm, and, as a result-HThe Cauldron". This annual is the
house of our High School Pastg to its picture galleries we can go
to refresh our memories concerning days of the past, some gray,
some bright. To each one of us this volume is "our yesterdays"-
where the days that have past liveg and to which, when the days
that are, seem cold and forbidding, we can go confident that the
warmth of the bubbling "Cauldron" will cheer our drooping spirits.
The Practical Benefits of a High School Education.
There are many practical benefits which one may receive from a
high school education. The high school is organized to provide for
instructing the child in a knowledge of people, institutions, things
and ideas, and for preparing every child to do his work in life. Al-
though most high school pupils are past the age at which they are
legally compelled to attend school, after eight years spent in ac-
quiring the knowledge of our graded schools. they realize the value
and necessity of an education. and are willing and anxious to con-
tinue their work. High school is a continuation of the elementary
school. Here the student may be given the opportunity to com-
plete and intensify the education which the elementary school
started. In the high school the children move naturally from the
studies of the elementary grades to more advanced studies, but the
purpose of both elementary and high schools is the preparation of
children for living.
In our first days outside of school, we may regard the time spent
in high school as so many years of useless labor. But as the time
passes, we shall see that the years spent here have given us not
-only knowledge and intellectual stimulas but moral and spiritual
growth as well. The true student is he who attempts to prepare
himself to enter into the practical world. It is often said that
many students do not attend school with this purpose in mind.
Some seemingly have no interest in their school work, and no am-
hition. NVC cannot understand their purpose in attending school.
They not only neglect the regular school work, but also all other
school activities. Such a life does not lead to development. Other
students spend all their time in preparation for the work required
to finish the course. They have no interest in other work, in school
society, or in outside societyg high scholarship is their only ambi-
tion. Narrow-mindedness and lack of development is the result of
such a life. The true high school student is the one who is inter-
ested in all activities of school. He will reap a rich return, for he
will have something of the breadth that is required to meet his
work in the world.
The work in each of the departments of the high school aids in
the developement of the students. The English course acquaints
us with the great men of the world and develops an appreciation
ot our best literature. The history and civics departments famil-
ia rize the students not only with the framework of our government
hut also with the actual problems of civic and political life. One
of the chief duties of society is to insure health. This training is
included in the study of chemistry and hygiene. From the study
of Latin and German we are able to appreciate the classics and
add to our knowledge of English.
Next to the regular work come other school interests of vast
important in the student's advancement. Such interests include
the debate, oratory, music, art, literary work, and athletics. The
literary work broadens those who take part in it and those who
listen to the discussions, it accustoms the students to appear before
an audience and interest them in the topics of the day. The orator-
ical work brings the students before the public, and gives them
ease and power in public speaking. The debate work does this and
more,, in that it develops the ,power to concentrate, to reason, and
to have self-control. The music and art develop the artistic taste. The
athletics furnish much needed exercise and recreation, which de-
velops all the muscles of the body. It also inoculates self-reliance,
manliness, fairness, and a love of clean sportsmanship. Also, they
create an interest in the school life and increase school patriotism.
VV hen we had completed our high school course, we felt that we
had gained much from The Frankfort High School, and we felt
that we had done much to add to its pleasure and success. Here
we have built our characters, and here we have laid the foundation
upon which weishall build our lives.
The Value of a High School Education for Entering a Practical
Education in the broad sense consists of the broadening or the
uplifting of the individual in all of the three phases of education,
which make or destroy a man's chance of success, namely the de-
velopment of the mind, the body, and the morals. It is difficult to
set out one of these phases as being of more importance than the
rest of a man's welfare. One is just as important as the other. If
one is undeveloped or neglected, the man must suffer. It is the
purpose of a high school education to develop the student, as far
as possible, along all of these lines.
The development of the mind is of predominance in the school.
The student's powers of concentration, self-reliance, and perception
are quickened. He learns to see things in their proper perspective,
and in their relation to one another. just thesame as athletics
strengthen the body, so does the pursuance of suitable studies de-
velopthe mind. The school becomes the mental play ground or
gymnasium. Each particular line of work is an education in itself,
and the lield the student covers is large. He is taken from the cul-
tivation of the aesthetic through music, art and letters, from the
study of the mysteries and wonders of science on to the more prac-
tical to be found in the vocational departments.
In connection with some high schools there is a gymnasium,
the benefits of which cannot be overestimated when the health of
the pupil is taken into consideration. Together with this, the ath-
letic department, as a side affair in the high school, tends to fur-
ther strengthen the body and maintain a proper school spirit. The
health of the mind and that of the body are intimately related. The
highest degree of mental efficiency can never be reached and main-
tained if the health of the body is not at its maximum. Many go
through life half alive, accepting positions of minor importance
when they have the talent for leadership, because of a half-well,
half developed body. Concentration, a perquisite for success in
all lines of human endeavor, especially mental, is necessarily les-
sened by ill health. Thus, the gymnasium, or athletics, by bringing
into fit action all the organs and muscles vitally necessary for good
health, naturaly makes the student a. better thinker, more active
and, to a large degree, more moral. '
The health of the student, or any individual, undoubtedly has
an influence over his morals. This opinion has become so preva-
lent that the attention of medical scientists has been attracted to it
in the treatment and the prevention of crime. Thus, the growth
morally, as the last but not least phase of education here dealt with,
is essentially necessary for the welfare of the pupil. It is, however,
something that is often overlooked or undervalued. In the school.
the environment of the pupil, the incentive to greater efforts, the
acquisition of companionship and literature worth while, are all of
the highest importance, especially in the case of the student whose
training of a more religious nature is more or less neglected.
Man, in the scale of progress, must either advance or recede.
He may not or cannot remain as he is. Events occur 'and are for-
gotten, days come and vanish in the past, which make for the per-
son concerned a higher or lower standard of culture. The youth
at the threshold of life must choose for himself either avenue on
life's highway. The high school course has the tendency to make
a man-a man in the truest sense of the word-of the student.
Back of the knowledge acquired in the trades, professions, and
other walks of life, must be the man or personality. Thus it can
be seen that the development of the student through the three
phases of education, already mentioned, is essentially necessary to'
him who is to cope with the problems of a practical world.
Proper High School Spirit.
Epidemics in school are usually considered a great calamity, and'
the health authorities and school authorities use every effort to pre-
vent such. Yet there is one epidemic that attacks every person'
who is, or has been, in any way connected with the Frankfort High
School. The little germ that causes this epidemic, first pierces the
heart of its victim and then the disease spreads through his sys-
tem. For the last thirty-seven years not one member of the faculty,
the school board, or the student body has been immune from it.
T hey all fall into the clutches of this tiny bacterial organism. The
peculiar feature of this germ is, that not one victim ever recovers
from it. But, strange to say, instead of causing distress and misery
as all other maladies do, this causes happiness and joy. This small:
but mighty germ which causes this unusual disease is commonly
called proper high school spirit.
The True High School Spirit.
Perhaps in every high school, there is no subject that is discussed
more frequently than the one-true high school spirit. This dis-
cussion is not to be wondered at, however, since the reputation of
of the school depends largely upon its spirit. The students of a
school may be ever so brilliant and studious, but if they lack true
school spirit, the school will fail to do its best work. True school
spirit is evidenced when the pupils loyally support the school en-
tertainments, plays, basket-ball, football, games, and contests of all
kinds, and when the students display the right attitude toward their
studies, their fellow-students, and their instructors. Strange to
say, the pupils of almost every school complain that there is no
spirit in their school. This complaint is heard in the Frankfort
Some people in the Frankfort High School think that the school
lacks spirit because the students do not carry out the color scheme
of the class colors in their article of clothingg because color Fights
and tank scraps are not indulged in. However, the faculty and
the people of sound minds see the fallacy of such practices, for,
instead of stimulating true high school spirit, they kill the true
spirit, and arouse a feeling of class distinction, enmity, and bitter-
ness. This false idea of what encourages the true school spirit is
obtained from such practices in colleges, but many of these colleges
have seen, or are beginning to see, the wantonness of such practices
and are discarding them. ln our own state. Purdue has abolished
tank scraps, and NVabash College and lndiana University have cur-
tailed the most dangerous sports connected with their annual
The pupils of the Frankfort High School do have the right kind
of spirit. liach student seems to realize that he is a part of
the school as much as he is a part of his own family, and that the
school serves him as much as the home does. The students show
the right attitude to their teachers, and vice versa. W'hen school
events take place. the students usually loyally patronize them.
l"rankfort's delegation to oratorical contests is always the largest
delegation. When class plays take place, there is always a crowded
house. Chesterfield says, "Spirit is now a very fashionable wordg
to act with spirit, to speak with spirit means only to act rashly, and
to talk indiscreetly. An able man shows his spirit by gentle words
and resolute actionfi This is the kind of spirit the students of the
Frankfort High School possess, the commendable spirit. VVhy not
leave well enough alone?
NVe, the members of KUFHE CAUI.ukoN" staff, desire to thank those
who have in any way assisted in the publication of "THE CAULDRON."
VV e appreciate the kindness of the subscribers and of the merch-
ants who advertised in "THE CAULDRON,u thus making its publica-
tion possible. Many of the pupils and members of the faculty have
willingly given their time and assistance. Especially do we desire
to thank Miss Boyd, our art instructor, and her class, for they have
worked faithfully in order that our Annual may be a success.

Except for an occasional reprimand for misdirected energy,
Peace reigned supreme in the Frankfort High School Assembly on
Monday morning, October twenty-seventh, nineteen hundred and
thirteen. The pupils came into the room quietly, took their ac-
customed places and went quickly to work. r
Suddenly, in the north hallway a loud commotion was heard.
liumpety-bump ! Bump !-Thump !
"Yaa! Boo-hoo-hoo!-I've lost my stick o' candy," roared a
Peace pricked up her ears and seemed uneasy. The students,
ever ready to desert their books for abit of fun, looked toward
the door expectantly.
"Oh! owoooh l"
Bang! The swinging doors at the front of the room swung back
with accelerated vigor, and Ralph VVhitford, one of our largest sen-
iors, fell sprawling across the threshold.
Peace, thoroughly frightened, lied and Confusion entered.
Ralph picked himself up and gazed innocently, blankly, around
the assembly. As he slowly regained his full height, the inquisitive
eyes of the lower classmen, traveled curiously from his tousled head
to his blue shirt and broken suspenders, from the stick of candy
and the lunch box to the patched, three-quarter length trousers, and
from them to the very conspicuous, colored stockings. It was quite
unnecessary to announce that it was Senior-Freshman Day. .
On this particular day, the other Seniors came in twos and
threes, bashful, awkward boys, and shy, frightened girls. They did
everything noisily and clumsily. The assembly was in a continuous
state of merriment over their foolish blunders until Mr. Stubbs was
obliged to call for order.
All the teachers tried to hold recitations with the usual order,
but general attention was directed toward some Senior-Freshman
who had drifted into the class. The climax came during the last
period in the morning. All the Seniors in the assembly collected
around the tables on the platform and started to amuse themselves,
as well as any one who should be looking. They ate candy, played
with dolls, banged lunch boxes around, dropped with a loud clatter,
pencils and pencil boxes, and even started to chase one another. A
ripple of laughter flowed across the assembly at each new flourish
on the stage. Mr. Stubbs added to the fun by threatening to use a
nicely whittled paddle. However, as the hilarity increased, he be-
gan to get nervous. A final noisy demonstration exhausted his pa-
tience, and he sent them all to their seats just a few minutes before
the dismissal bell rang. And thus ended one more celebration of
In order that my readers may better appreciate the full meaning
of Senior-Freshman Day, I shall explain briefly what it signifies.
Seniors, as you know, are supreme in their austerity, wisdom and
dignity. They live in a region far above the common lower class-
men. They are old,-so old, sad to say, that a few, especially
among the feminine half of the class, refuse to disclose their exact
number of years. Because of their age, but chiefly because of their
great, dignity and high rank, it would be most bold and dangerous
creatures who would not humbly extend to them, all due respect
However, the Seniors do not always live above the common
classes. Like the gods they, too, sometimes visit those who are in-
ferior. That they do this, came about in the following way:
Many years ago, so long I cannot tell the exact time, a Grand
Past Body of Seniors decreed that one day of each term should be
set aside to commemorate their early trials and struggles as under-
classmen. This day should be observed as each generation of Sen-
iors saw fit. Since the hardest steps to climb, on their way to the
Heights of,Dignity, was the freshman step, it was further decreed
that the Seniors, on the appointed day should return to the lower
plain and, disguised as freshmen, again climb that step and brighten
the dreary life of the lower classmen, by making it a day of fun at
the Seniors' expense. And from that time to this, the Seniors have
rigidly and faithfully performed the task which they set out for
themselves -LUCILE STAIR.

History of the january Section of the Class of 1914.
In january, 1910, sixty-four freshmen entered the high school.
lVe spent the first year in acquiring high school ways by imitating
the upper classmen, gaining a reputation for ourselves in our stud-
ies, and giving our loyal support to all of the high school activities
in some of which we were participants.
Nineteen eleven found the class almost unchanged in number. XVe
were no longer imitators but original and self-reliant. In class
work we were alertg in football, baeball, track work, and debate,
we were active. In the September term we gave a little farce en-
titled, "A Quiet Family," which proved a success. Although we
had few social affairs that year, we gave one dance for our own en-
tertainment during the spring vacation.
Juniors! How our hearts swelled when we entered the third
year of our high school life. But we soon found that, although
this year was the most pleasant, it also brought the most work.
However, with all the burdens of a Junior, some of our number
found time to enter the debate Class, the Apollo Club, the Boys'
and Girls' Chorus, and the Orchestra. NVe also took prominent
parts in the operetta, "The Mikado." The most pretentious social
affair of the year was the Junior reception in honor of the Seniors
at the beautiful home of Mrs. E. Benjeman. The grounds were
lighted with japanese lanterns, and several girls, dressed in japan-
ese costumes, served lunch. The Byrely and Dembo orchestra of
Logansport furnished music for the dancing and the entertainer of
the evening was Mr. Peter B. Trone of Indianapolis.
The Senior year has been, as it should be, the pleasantest year
of all. Although We were too busy for any social life during the
first term, we "made up for lost time" the second term by giving
three class parties,Ruth Stone, Esther Kramer and Edith Coulter
entertaining us. During the year members of our class took promi-
nent parts in "Mice and Men," a play presented by both Senior
classes. XVe are now eagerly looking forward to the Senior Recep-
tion and Graduation, the two events which will close our high
SCh0l life- -MARY MORRISON..
History of the May Section of the Class of 1914.
The history of this class is not an unusual one, but we can truly
say that we have had an unusually good time together, especially
in our senior year. There were sixty-two students in our class who
entered high school in the fall of 1910, out of which number more
than half failed to complete the course. But, during the four years,
a number of students from other schools have been added until now
the final number in our class is thirty-four. Vtlhile we have not been
a brilliant class, our work has been above the average, and we have
done our part in making the school a success.
There have been many distinguished ones in our class who de-
serve mention in this brief history. Basil lfValters, president of our
class in the senior year, was a debater and orator from the very be-
ginning, and it was partly through his efforts that we won the medal
that hangs on the walls of old F. H. S. In the 1913 ortorical con-
test he won third place for us at Lebanon. Letha Irwin deserves
much praise for her good work as president of the Sunshine So-
ciety, for her success as winner of the Sally May Byers contest, and
for her interest in the oratoricals. Wilmina Hillis was also winner
in the Sally May Byers contest, there being a close race between
Wilmina and Lucile Stair, also of our class.
At least eight of our boys have taken part in athletics. Claude Sheets
was sent to the State Meet three times and last year he made an un-
usually good record, coming within two seconds of breaking the
state high school record. Horace Freas was captain of the Basket-
ball Team this year. Many times have I held my breath watching
"Pony" throw the ball through the hoop. In the work of the girls
in basket-ball, Dorothea Hemelgarn and Lucile Stair have been the
chief spirits. "Dorothy" has given me many a bump, and I often
wished she would not be so rough. But she is the kind the high
school needs, and she has done much for the girls in athletics. We
even have a newspaper man among our number. Horace Freas ad-
ded to his honors and ours by being editor of the high school notes
in the "Times", and, although he did use "did" for "done" some-
times, he was forgiven and his good work appreciated.
ln music our class has not gained much prominence. Gail Cave
belonged to the boy's chorus, and frequently sang solos, also VVil-
mina Hillis and Ruth Noble have sung solos before the assembly.
But, perhaps, Paris Stockdale is the best musician in our class. He
plays on the violin unusually well for a youth of his years, and his
loss will be keenly felt by the orchestra next year. Thirteen of our
number took part in the class play. The leading roles were taken
by two from our class, Gail Cave, and Letha Irwin.
During our high school life our class has had many delightful so-
cial affairs. Last year we gave the junior Reception at the Conley
home, and it was one of the most enjoyable high school parties ever
given. Our first class social at the befginning of our senior year
was held at my home. Doris Wilson was then president, and she
was very successful in arousing an interest in social life. The next
social, called a chicken-supper, was held, at the country home of
Clare Goff. On the day of the party it rained all day, causing the
roads to be in a very bad condition, but, as we went in an automo-
bile truck, we suffered little inconvenience except an occasional
bump of our heads on the top of the truck when the truck went
down into some deep rut. Every senior had a delightful time toast-
ing marshmallows and playing the organ, to say nothing of the joy
of the delicious supper. The last class social was held at the home
of VVilmina Hillis. The girls provided for all the supper other than
the ice-cream, this being furnished iby the boys. All of our class
but three were there, and such a picnic I never expect to enjoy
One thing which cast a gloom over our Christmas vacation was
the death of our little school-comlrade, Helen Sheridan. None real-
ized that she could be taken away from us, so busy were we with
our own pleasures and duties. So happy, cheerful, and sweet was
Helen that, when she was gone, each one missed her in her accus-
tomed places more than he ever dared to express. As time goes on
we are prone to forget those who have left us, but I am sure not
one senior of the class of 1914 will ever forget Helen, or ever cease
to think of her as she was in her old school-days.
The time is going fast, and I cannot realize the fact that my high
school days are over. It seems but about two short years since I
entered high school, but, instead, it has been twice that long. I
often dream in my idle moments what the future has in store for
each one of us, but, no matter what we do or where we go, it is my
earnest wish that we may always remain true friends.

Orphans- .Mice and .Men
F o r t y - f o u r
Gbe Glass llblag
The class play, which was produced by the January and May
sections of the Senior Class of 1914, was entitled "Mice and Men."
The play, a romantic comedy in four acts by Madeleine Lucette
Ryley, receives its name from that portion of Robert Burn's poem,
"To a Mouse," which reads:
g The best laid schemes 0' mice an' men
Gang aft a-gleyg
And leave us nought but grief an' pain
For promised joy."
The scene of the story was laid in Harnstead, England, and the
time of action was about 1785. Gail Cave, as Mark Embury, a
philosopher and scientist, mild and good, planned, considering it his
duty to perpetuate his race, to rear an orphan, according to his
idea of perfect womanhood, who should be schooled in simplicity
and thrift, and upon maturity, to marry her. Accordingly, he se-
lected from a number of orphan girls his ward, Little Britain, or
as he chose to call her, "Peggy." Fancying after a period of two
years, that he had been progressing in his "avowed intentions,"
since Peggy loved Dame Nature and had developed a liking for
Botany, Embury decided to tell his "dream-child," for he had never
revealed his plans to her, how he had once laid plans for the train-
ing of a girl, an orphan, how he had wandered sometimes from
his plans, but, how he had preserved the spirit of his former ideas.
All these things he told Peggy and others yet: how those plans
were incomplete "so long as the maid was not a wife," so long as
she had not entered that circle which makes life complete.
In the meantime, Embury had bought the "little south cottage
on the other side of the hill," had it furnished anew from cellar
to garret, andlhad its garden fashioned in a way which he hoped
would suit Peggy's liking.
But the phi1osopher's mind became overcast with doubts. He
felt that in that previous planning he had overlooked that part
which would be for Peggy's good. This wise philosopher dreamed
and saw, saw that his plans had failed. She, Peggy, was Nature's
product and not his, he had attempted to mold her career, and Na-
ture had outdone him. And more still, Peggy was not intended for
him. He had passed his youth and she was just blooming into
fresh womanhood, He was not the "man whom she loved, only
the man who loved her." Then Embury, at the cost of a great sac-
rifice, gave, on the day before the expected wedding day, which he
had eagerly looked forward to a life-time, to his nephew, Captain
Lovell, who had long loved Peggy, his "pretty one" with the home
and the little fortune she brought with her. Itiwas Embury's earn-
est desire' that in their new home they let no thought of him cloud
their happiness, since all the pleasure he had had in this world had
been brought by Peggy.
Excellent taste and judgment were displayed when this play was
selected for presentation. The play seemed singularly well adapted
to the talent of the individual members, and, consequently, the per-
formance was one of the most successful ever given by a gradua-
ting class. The interpretation of Mark Embury by Gail Cave
would demand favorable criticism from a professional. Letha Ir-
win, as Peggy, the timid orphan girl, won the admiration of the
audience: as did Ralph Whitford. Marybelle Temple, the finance
of Goodlake, Lucy Scripture, Willard Thurman, Embury's nephew,
Russel Pence, and Horace Freas, Embury's servant, are all de-
serving of special mention. The clever antics of Herman Hertz,
the fiddler and professor of deportment, created no end of amuse-
ment. The play would be incomplete without the mention of Ur-
sula Gernon, as Matron of the Foundling Hospitalg Basil Walters
as Beadle, and the orphans. The cast as well- as Miss Howard.
the instructor, deserves generous praise for their splendid work.
The music for the evening was furnished by the High School
Orchestra, under the direction of Miss Bell. The music, which
was highly appreciated by the audience, reflected much credit upon
the instructor. The scenery and settings, which were furnished by
the Blinn Theatre and the patrons of the school, were in keeping
with the picturesque settings in which the comedy abounds. In
short- every detail of the play showed so much careful considera-
tion that the performance as a whole has rightfully earned a place
among HF. H. S.'s" most successful productions.
"The stage is a powerful force for good or evil. When
the power is thrown to the right side of the good, it becomes what
one has labored to make it, a success, commercially, intellectually
and morally." In this view of the real success of a play, we be-
lieve that "Mice and Men" may be classed as a success, since it
portrayed not tl1e degrading side of life but the moral, elevating,
and uplifting side. Although Embury's plans failed like Hamlet's,
although carefully and well laid, it was in the goodness, purity, un-
sellishness, and strength of the wise philosopher that the noble
theory of the drama was contained.

"The Great Pumpkin Case."
Judge F0bb ,-,---------AA-..V...............A.AAA..............4............................ Arthur Kramer
On the night of December 5, 1913, the High School gave an en-
tertainment consisting of two farces, one, "Gertrude Mason, M. D."
by an all-girl cast, the other, "The Great Pumpkin Case,-" by an
all-boy cast. f f
The evening's entertainment was opened by the following musi-
cal numbers: "The Spinning VVheel," by the Girl's Chorus,
"Over the Ocean Blue," by the Boys' Glee Club, "The Vesper
Hymn," by the Quartetteg "Until the Dawn," by the Boys"Octet,
and "Sunrise Overture," by the School Orchestra. f.Each of these
numbers was loudly applauded. The Boys' Octet,-and the Qual--
tette responded with encores which were well received. Dur-
ing a short intermission between the farces the Orchestra played
"Brisk and Breezy," and the evening's program concluded by an-
other selection by the Orchestra entitled "Maurice Tangs." '
The first farce presented was "Gertrude Mason, M. D." The
plot of the farce is as follows: Dr. Gertrude Mason. an ambi-
tious, unsuspecting woman doctor, who is very anxious to be in-
dependent of all men, is made the victim of a practical joke. Eer-
tha Lawrence and Ella Gray, both friends of the doctor, have con-

spired to disgust the doctor with her chosen profession so that they
can more easily induce her to marry Miss Lawrence's brothe'r jack,
who is desperately in lovevwith her. .It is known that the doctor
will marry no one so long as she has any chance of obtaininga
medical practice. s
In the furtherance of their plans, the Misses Lawrence and Gray
have stationed a man in the corridor outside the doctor's suit with
instructions to admit only those who will discourage the doctor
with her profession and to tell other prospective patients that the
doctor is out. As a result, the doctor is disappointed in each of
three callers who visit her in the course of the day. Mary, a
lady's maid, merely wishes to inquire for the address of the doc-
tor's tailor, Mrs. Van Style, one of the n4OOH, has mistaken the
doctor's office for a pawn shop, Miss jane Simpkins, a spinster of
uncertain age, has bought her lap dog to be treated by the doctor.
At this- opportune moment the Misses Lawrence and Gray visit
the doctor to endeavor to induce her to lay aside her pride and am-
bition and become engaged to jack. The doctor secretly entertains
a love for jack, which, up to this time, she has sacrificed on the
altar of ambition. Now, however, wearied with the disappoint-
ments of the three weeks during which she has tried to obtain a
practice, she acknowledges her love, and accepts Jack's indirect
proposal. She never learns of the man in the corridor.
The plot was made very interesting by the effective manner in
in which the farce was presented.- Nora, the doctor's cook, amused
the audience with her well affected, "almost real," Irish brogue.
The entire role of characters was excellently portrayed by the cast.
A short selection by the orchestra, mentioned above, was then
followed by the second farce, entitled, "The Great Pumpkin Case."
"The Great Pumpkin Case" was a mock court trial. Lawyer Foo-
zle, counsel for Hi. Guff, the plaintiff, averred that Ab. Muff, de-
fendant, represented by Lawyer Squibbs, did, "feloniously, malic-
iously and with malice aforethought, pull, purloin, abstract, with-
draw, secrete, steal, embezzle, pinch and convert, for the benefit of
himself and his cows, a prize pumpkin, which, having been planted
in the pumpkin patch of Hi. Guff, and, "having grown in a direc-
tion about twenty degrees south of west, sinuously and capriciously
did grow, meander and extend itself through the crack of the line
fence and proceed to bloom and fruit in the cornlield of Ab. Muff."
The "intelligent jury" found Pike VVhiffles and cow guilty. Pike
was a witness for the plaintiff. XVhen informed by the judge that
Nllhiffles was not in the case at all, the jury "reckoned that he was
in the muss deeper'n any. He sorter egged it on." Upon the
judge's further objection that a cow can not be fined, the jury re-
plied, "But we hev done it, jedgef'
The play was chock-full of humor and kept the audience contin-
ually in an uproar.
Much credit for the success of the entertainment is due Miss
Bell, who directed the musical numbers, and the Messrs. Stubbs,
and Clark under whose direction the farces were pesented.

Culture in the High School.
Two students were graduated from high school, they were equally
industrous, equally zealous. They were graduated with the same
number of credits and equally good grades. But, somehow, one re-
membered what our "Declaration of Independence" says about the
"pursuit of happiness" being among "our inalienable rights", and be-
ing far-sighted, he chose, in his course of studies, art, music, and de-
bate as well as the essentials. The other forgot, or did not appre-
ciate this philosophy, and hence took only the required work.
Years passed, success came to both. But, along with it, came dis-
content to one. Wliile young it did not matter that rag-time was
more pleasing than Boch, musical comedy than opera, and that he
preferred his room "done" in bright red instead of a more soothing
artistic color. Youth forgives and forgets such things.
Yet, after success came and the years passed and he had time to
look at his red walls, he wondered why every thing palled upon him.
Rag-time and musical comedy had lost their charm, yet nocturnes
and grand opera meant nothing to him. Light literature that
pleased him in his youth, now brought no pleasure, but better books
were beyond his grasp. He had put down his "The Cloister and the
Hearth" because he had not taken Latin in high school. Every-
where he found illusions to Bacchus, Aeneas, Diana, and so forth.
lt was so tiresome to "look them up" every time. Why was rag-
time and musical comedy so irritating? NVhy was opera and Boch
so tiresome? Because now he had reached the age that calls for
things with strength and Worth in them, the real beauties of life,
and his heart yearned for them, yet, because he had not learned to
appreciate them in his youth and early life, he could not now. And
even work, his last hope, was becoming tiresome, because in youth
in high school he had not laid a firm foundation. In age we reap
what in youth we sow. He sowed indiscretion in youth and in age
But as age came with its success upon his more far-seeing class-
mate, it found him prepared for it. In his leisure hours, he read his
Victor Hugo, Dickens, Eliot, and Reade, listened to Beethoven,
went to operas, visited art galleries, and enjoyed them all. He did
his full share of work in the business world and never became weary
of it, because the joy he gained from the many other fields in which
he was interested, gave him the required change from the monotony
of business life.
Now of course in these days of the "high cost of living" We must
be practical, we must have our commercial arithmetic and our man-
ual training. But must we have them at a sacrifice of our culture?
Youth must prepare for age. Money and physical well being are
not sufficient preparation. They are of course necessary. They
help to make life in old age more easily borne. But work and money
do not spell life. There is a discontent, a yearning after something'
indefinite, and should work become impossible, there is a vast emp-
tiness. What is more pathetic than an old man wasting away, rest-
lessly, because success having come he has nothing else to live for?
On the other hand, what is more pleasing than an old man enjoying
life and throwing out his radiating philosophy to the younger gen-
eration? The last picture is of one who, in youth, combined culture
with the required studies in high school. Thus we see that only a
combination of those studies that bring an appreciation of culture
with those that teach the practical will bring to the high school
student the ability to make the best of life.
I -MABEL LEWIS, '14.
What High School Has Meant to Me.
Many people say that a high school education is worthless and
that a student only fills, after graduation, some inferior position
that he might have filled before. It generally happens, however,
that the people who say this have never gone beyond the grades in
school, and they have no proof for their statement. For my part,
it has only been in the last year or two that I have come to realize
what a high school education means. Even at this time, I never re-
gret the time I have spent in schoolg I would follow the same course
in case I had my life to live over. According to statistics given by
a lecturer before our school, the average value of each day spent in
school is ten dollars. VVould it be wise, therefore, to quit school in
the grades, and start into work at one dollar and fifty cents a day
at the most, when four years spent in high school would mean eight
dollars and fifty cents a day to you in later life? It is unnecessary
to say what the answer should be.
High school has well proved its worth to me educationally. I
am hereby enabled to enter any college, if I choose to do so, without
examination, I am better able to go into the world and begin my life
work. I have already had it proved to me that a high school educa-
tion increases one's earning capacity. It has helped me to gain and
hold a position in an office. VV hen I applied for the position, one of
the first questions the superintendent asked me was concerning my
high school education. By having the choice in several subjects, I
have been able to select my favorite one and improve upon' it. I
have been able to follow subjects that interest me, such as the sci-
ences. It has always been through the high school that I have found
a vocation that pleases me. Although this course is not connected
with the high school, my first interest in the course was aroused in
school. The high school has given me a different attitude toward
life. I have more self confidence, and, when different problems arise,
I can meet them better. The more I see of life and the disability of
other people, through the lack of education, the more l desire an
The high school has also been a benefit to me socially. Since en-
tering high school, I have gained a much wider acquaintance. I have
known the majority of the students that have been in high school
during the last four years. During that time I have attended many
socials and receptions given by different classes, which have made
me better able to meet people socially when I go ont into the world.
Also, since entering high school, I have associated with a better class
of companions. While in the grades my companions were not al-
ways of the best, but they have entirely passed from my life.
The high school has only benefitted me to a limited extent physi-
cally. My enthusiam in athletics was aroused in high school, but I
never took an active part because I did not have the time to devote
to them. Although this was the case, I have had some training, and
am, therefore, benefitted to a certain degree. From my own exper-
ience as a high school student, I am fully convinced that the high
school brings to any boy or girl, who makes an effort, a return that
is to him of inestimable value. -PAUL DREYER, '14.
The Kidnapping of Chester, junior.
It was late in the afternoon when Chester Ainsworth, Senior, with
his little son in his arms, and encumbered with a suit case and a
leather bag full of milk bottles, entered the south bound train for
Cedarsville. I-Ie seated himself in the day coach, and after a short
conference with the porter in regard to the arrangement of berths,
settled the baby in his arms and gave himself over to the dutiful
care of his child.
The train sped swiftly over the ground, covered with a deep
mantle of snow. Ainsworth grinned as he muttered to himself:
"NVell, I wish Katherine could see me now!"
Katherine, his wife, had gone to her old home on the farm near
Cedarsville several weeks ago, in order that she might have a much
needed rest, and regain in some measure at least, her wonted
strength. Norah, the faithful servant, had insisted that the baby
be left in her charge during the time, and when Ainsworth had add-
ed his entreaties to Norah's Katherine had not had the strength
to refuse. It was ageed that Norah and Ainsworth with the child,
should join her at her old home on Christmas. But when Norah
hadiat the last moment begged Ainsworth to allow her to spend the
holidays with her own kin, he had given his permission, and set out
for the country alone. '
Chester Junior was asleep when they started, and he remained
so until the train was well on its way. But it could not be expected
of any child, no matter how angelic itsdisposition, to slumber in
that crowded, noisy car. And no one, save Katherine, attributed
any such virtue as an angelic disposition to Chester Junior. Ac-
cordingly, in due time, he awoke, fisted his eyes, wrinkled up his
tiny red nose, gurgled coherently, gasped, gurgled again, and burst
into deafening shrieks.
'Ainsworth shifted him into his other arm, dandled him, petted
him, cooed at him, whistled to him, played "bow-wow", "peek-a-
lQoo", and "paddy-cake", all to no avail. "Papa.'s precious Baby
Bye," continued to scream and kick, and the minutes dragged on
while the poor parent broke into a cold, agonizing sweat, and
the passengers scowled at the disturbance. Seemingly hours of
this slow torment had elapsed, when Ainsworth looked up to be
'greeted by the cool voice of a charming maid in brown.
"Is this seat occupied ?"
Ainsworth merely shook his head, and the girl dropped into the
chair opposite, removed her perfectly fitting brown kid gloves, and
drew back the brown veil from her face.
Her presence was very disconcerting to the father, who, under
the cool, searching gaze of her deep. brown eyes, felt it exceedingly
foolish to cluck and "bow-wow" at the baby. As the only alterna-
tive, he attempted to stand up and pace the aisle, but a lurch of the
car sent him suddenly and not very gracefully to his seat, and there
he helplessly remained.
Suddenly, the girl said sweetly, holding out her hands, "Let me
try to quiet himl, sir. I am used to children. I know what it is to
have a little brother-I have one of my own."
Ainsworth blushed. Evidently the girl thought him too young to
be a father. In spite of his twenty-four years, he was exceedingly
boyish in appearance.
Willingly enough he relinquished his charge with a sigh of re-
lief as Chester Junior settled snugly down in the young lady's arms,
and almost instantly grew quiet. Then the girl smiled.
Perhaps you would like to spend a While in the smoking car, sir.
If you wish, I will care for Baby Bye while you go."
Ainsworth smiled appreciatively. "I should not like to impose
"It will be no imposition, sir. Indeed I shall really enjoy it,"
she interrupted. V
"Well-, I'd like to go! I won't stay long, and Ir shall be ever
so much obliged to you. You are not leaving the train soon F" he
Oh, no, I am to remain all night."
"All right. I'll soon be back." And thanking his lucky stars for
this wonderful deliverance, he hurried away. Seated in the com-
fortable smoking car, with a good cigar in his mouth, and an in-
teresting paper before him, he was soon absorbed in far away
thoughts, and an hour passed before he realized it. Then springing
up, he threw away the end of his cigar, and hurried back to the
coach. The girl and the baby were nowhere to be seen.
Startled and alarmed, Ainsworth turned quickly to find the con-
ductor. An old woman in the seat behind him aroused herself from
a doze, and, seeing his perplexed look, exclaimed:
"Is it your wife and baby you're looking for, sir? VVhy, bless
your soul, I seen her go across the station platform with the baby
in her arms, myself."
"I've been asleep off an' on all evenin' ", she added, "but I was
awake long enough to see her go."
The conductor could throw no light on the situation, and the
frightened and frantic parent finally dashed from the train, panic-
"Good Heavens", he muttered. "VVhat will Katherine say--it'll
kill her! I've heard of such things in fiction, but in real life, never!
I must arouse the police in every town in the state.
Ten minutes after Ainsworth left the train, the girl in brown
emerged from the Pullman with Baby Bye in her arms and re-
turned to the seat she and Ainsworth had occupied. The baggage
was there undisturbed. The girl consulted a little gold watch and
"VVhy, Baby Bye, I knew you were tired, but just to think-we
went into the sleeping car and slept nearly an hour.. I wonder
where your big brother is, anyway. I don't know what to do. He
said he wouldn't stay long. Here, boy-no, I don't want a paper-
go into the smoking car and tell the maniwho belongs to this baby
that I want him."
VV hen the boy returned to say that Ainsworth was not there, the
girl's face turned pale.
"Why, he must be," she insisted desperately.
But Ainsworth, or anyone answering to his description, was not
on the train. When this intelligence reached her, the girl burst in-
"Whoever heard of suchia thing? Oh, what a rogue he must be
--and he looked so nice! Poor little baby-to have such a brother!
Oh, dear-what shall I do? Oh, what shall I do !"
The noise once again awakened the old lady in the seat in the
rear. She rubbed her eyes and stared.
"Oh, it's you, is it?" VVhy, I seen you leave a long time ago, an'
I told your husband-" Qshe did not notice the girl's blush at these
wordsj-"an' he purty nigh had a lit, and jumped off the train like
"Oh dear," cried the girl, sobbing anew, "I never left' the train,
except for a little walk on the platform in the fresh air, when we-
stopped at North Wood for twenty minutes. Oh, oh! oh dear! oh
And as no other course presented itself, she at last retired to her'
berth, but not to sleep. Long before daylight she was summoned
by the porter, and left the train at a small country station. She-
carried Chester junior asleep in her arms.
"Hello, June. How are you, little wife of mine?" I've been
waiting an hour for your train-it was late. Good gracious, Girlie.
what have you there ?"
"Oh Bob, it's a baby, "the girl in brown answered tremulously-
"A baby,-a real one I"
A baby,-do you say? Where in the world, june-"
"l'll tell you all' about it. But come on,-I'm freezing. It's all
right,-I guess." June shivered and held Chester Junior a little
"VV ell, just a minute. I was expecting another passenger, but no
---no one here. Come on. Mother is anxious to see my bride, and
I am anxious to have you see her. She is waiting for you. None
of the others are up yet. We're going to have a ripping good time.
Here, let me hold the kid while you get into the buggy. There,
now, june, confess."
Manwhile, Ainsworth telegraphed to one town after another, not-
ifying all the policel forces to be on the lookout for the abductor.
And after a weary night he turned his weary steps toward Cedar-
'It was noon when he arrivedg at the farm. Pale, haggard, and
with great circles under his eyes, he staggered up to the door and
into the hall. In a room at the further end he saw Katherine seated
before the fire. She was smiling. How he pitied her. Tremblingly
he wondered how he would break the news to her, and what she
would say when she heard it.
Suddenly he gave a start. What was it that Katherine held in
her arms? Surely it could not be-yet it was-Baby Bye! And
impossible thought it seemed,-bending over them was the girl in
brown. Gasping for breath and wondering if he were really sane,
Ainsworth hurried toward the room. A shout greeted his entrance.
Rising and placing Chester Junior in his arms, Katherine kissed
him and said:
"I want you to meet my brother Robert's wife-june, Chester
dear." -FRANCES HAUCK, ,I5.
Stories jfrom 1Real life
No Liquor-No Breakfast.
On returning from a trip in Europe, Father told us a rather com-
ical experience he had in Germany in a dining car.
When he was seated at a table a waiter came, took his order for
breakfast, and asked what he wished to drink. Father said he would
take coffee. A look of surprise passed over the man's dirty, bony
face, and he went out. '
Shortly after a young and exceedingly homely English lady came
in and sat down at the table. The waiter appeared, took her order,
and again asked Father what he wanted to drink. Thinking that
perhaps they had no coffee, Father answered, "Milk." Complete
astonishment shone on the man's face, but still he went out without
ln a very short time the man brought in the lady's breakfast,
and with provoking persistency asked his usual question. In des-
peration Father answered, "Water". There was a world of silent
scorn and contempt in the look which Father received, as, with a
shrug which affected his whole skinny, loosely-jointed body, the man
raised his hands, palms upward and retreated.
When after another long wait, his breakfast was still not forth-
coming, the English lady, with a smile, perhaps of pity, said, "I sus-
pect if you want any breakfast, you had better order some liquor
whether you drink it or not. They won't serve you any meal
until you dof'
Wlhen the waiter came in to remove the lady's dishes, he re-
ceived the desired answer to his oft repeated question, and immed-
iately brought the long delayed breakfast.
Father learned afterward from the English lady, who relieved
him of the liquor, that the reason for this queer custom was that the
only profit the waiter makes is through the sale of strong drinks,
'consequently he loses no opportunity to serve them. -M. F.
An All-Knowing Scotchman.
Our washerwoman told me the following amusing incident the
" 'Miss Jane, you know that old red haired Scotchman who is al-
ways goin' to have the law on ye or forclosin' or somethin'? Well,
sir, bright and early yesterday morning, I heard someone at the
door, and when I looks out, I sees that Scotchman. VV ell, I says to
myself, says I, I wonder what he wants here. I opens the door and
stands with my arms akimbo and I looks at him. He says, says he:
'I've come to turn off the water.' '
'Turn off the water? says I.
'Yes,' he says, says he, 'You hae nae paid your water rent, so I'm
going to turn off the water.'
I looks at him bewildered like, and I says, says I, 'I guess I don't
owe you or any other dum fool any water rent.'
He gets as red in the face as his hair, and he says, says he:
'I'm sorry, lady, but I kin, and I hae nae time to waste here.'
I says, says I, 'I guess I know, and I ain't got any time to waste
on you either, but I guess if you've got it in that red head of yours
to cut off the water, you'll do it. The devil hisself couldn't stop
I steps aside and lets him in. He looks around and says, says he:
'NVhere is your water?'
I points across the room to the pump and says real big like.
'That's all there is and all there ever was. I just guess you've got
the wrong place, and you'd better get out before I gits you.' XVell,
I wish you could have seen his face. He sure did look dead beat.

The Farmer's Pet Pig.
A certain industrious tiller of the soil had a Fine drove of shoats.
Among them was one which was puny and sicikly when quite young,
and, for this reason, was made a pet by the whole family. There
xx as nothing too good for this pig to have. The richest milk, the
best grain, and the choicest of everything was given to him. He
literally feasted on the fat of the land. If the weather were cold or
stormy, the cleanest straw was used, and the warmest place selected
to make a bed for the lucky pig.
The rugged nature of the species, aided by such favorable care
and attention, soon began to show most gratifying results. The runt
developed with marvelous strides. He became the largest of the
drove. His body became plump and round. His short, fat legs
could hardly carry the enormous weight they had to bear, and when
he would run-which never happened except when he saw the
farmer coming to feed him-his legs would tremble and bend as
though they would give way under the weight.
One winter morning the farmer went out as usual with a large
bag of corn on his shoulder to give his hogs their regular supply.
It happened that the place where he stopped to empty the sack of
corn was very close to the brow of a hill, a very high one, and, it
also happened, that at that particular place the ground was icy and
very slippery. As might be expected, the pet pig was there, and, if
possible, a little more hungry and demonstrative than usual. In fact,
so terribly hungry was the darling pet that he could not wait without
protest for the farmer to empty the sack of corn. He ran up to the
man, squealed louder than ever, and the corn, not coming out to his
entire satisfaction, he pushed his big, fat, round body between the
farmer's feet, causing the man to slip on the ice, and down he came,
sack and man in a heap, on the back of the pig, and all three rolled
over the precipice. So steep and wet was the hill, so round and
heavy was the pig, and so helpless the man, that away they rolled
all three together, over and over, down the hill. One good turn de-
serves anotherg so they took it by turns on the way down. First the
sack of corn would go under, then the pig, and then the man.
XVhen the man had to go under he swore, when the pig was under,
it squealed. the sack was the only one of the three that kept quiet,
for when it was under, it made no complaint. VVhen the three
reached the bottom of the hill, the man and the pig had lost their
breath, while the sack had lost its contents. -li. ct
A Good 'joke on One of Our Seniors as Told by Himself.
Last winter I received an invitation from one of my girl friends
to accompany her to a Christmas dance, which was to be given by
her club. I read the invitation hurriedly, and wrote my acceptance
at once. Finally, the day on which I thought the dance was to oc--
cur, arrived, and I went to the barber shop "to get dolled up". I
arrived home late, and fairly had everybody hopping around to help
me dress. It was a cold and snowy night, consequently, I ordered a.
cab, and by eight o'clock I was on my way rejoicing. I was quite
excited over the coming dance, for I was wearing my First dress suit.
I fairly stood in the cab so as not to crease my pants or muss my
coat-tails. Finally the cab drew up to her home, and I leaped gal-
lantly out and rushed to the door. I gave the bell a good, long ring 3
fixed my tie, and put a pleasant smile on my face to greet her
mother, whom I saw coming hurriedly to answer my ring. She
opened the door.
I said, "Good evening," and stepped into the hall. The parlor
was well lighted. There on the davenport sat my lady friend, very
much interested in a gentleman caller, who sat opposite her. Of
course she jumped up, and came into the hall wearing a very blank
expression of surprise.
Before she had time to speak, I said, "Isn't this the night of the
dance ?" l
At lirst she looked amazed, and then she burst out laughing and
said, "Why, no, that's a week off yet."
I turned quickly and said, "Good-night", and ran and jumped
into the cab which soon landed me home. I now read my invitations
with the greatest of care. +R. G.
The "Sally Lunn" Cake.
Many years ago when our fathers and mothers were boys and
girls, this incident happened:
One day Mr. and Mrs. Marshall left early in the morning for
town, leaving their children in charge of the farm. As they were
not expected to return until evening, the children thought that it
would be so nice to do some baking during their parent's absence.
As the girls had never cooked very much, they knew very little
about the culinary art, but the boys persuaded them to try it, and
they set about linding receipts.
They finally decided to make a cake, the name of which was
"Sally Lunn" The receipt called for yeast, after the addition of
which, the dough was to be left to rise. Thinking that the addition
of more yeast than the receipt called for would be a great improve-
ment, for it would hurry the process and the cake would probably
be better, they added nearly twice as much as was called for.
The ingredients were put together, and the dough was put aside
to rise. The children, hastening out to play forgot about the cake
for a while, but, suddenly remembering it, they hastily returned to
the house. An unexpected sight met their horrified gaze. The
dough had risen over the edge of the vessel, the table was covered
with it, and some was on the floor.
"Chl what can be done with it?", the perplexed children asked
one another as, with doughy hands and clothes, they cleaned up the
dough, and poured part of what was still in the vessel into another.
But soon both vessels were full, and the dough was poured into other
vessels. When these were full the children decided that something
would have to be done immediately.
"Oh! we should never have tried it if we had known this would
happen! XfVhat do you suppose the folks will say ?", wailed the chil-
The dough continued to rise until several vessels were full. At
last one of the boys suggested that they dig a hole and bury "the
stuff". This was agreed to be the best plan, and the boys
promptly got spades, and commenced to work. The girls busied
themselves with carrying the dough to the grave where, with due
solemnity, it was deposited. The boys finished filling the hole with
dirt, and the girls returned to the house where they washed' the many
pans and crocks which had been filled with the dough.
Not a word was said about the cake when their parents returned
home that night, and it wasn't until many years afterward that the
parents learned of the incident. -M. D.
Only a Crust of Bread.
NVhen I was about four, and my sister Ella was three, we were
very particular about what we ate. One thing which we particu-
larly disliked was the crust of bread, although we could never get
enough of the soft, inner part of the loaf. Father, however, always
insisted that we eat every crumb of the first slice before we could
have a second. XVe considered this a severe punishment, and would
leave the crust whenever possible. I remember that on one occasion
I even took the crust of my bread out into the front yard after sup-
per. dug a small hole, and buried it.
One day my mother baked a large baking of bread, and put it in
the pantry. Then she went in next door to sit with a sick girl for
half an hour, leaving us alone. XYe played about with our dolls for
a while, until I suggested:
"Let's see whatlwe can find to eat !"
Ella, of course, agreed, and, entering the pantry, we found the
fresh bread. It smelled good. and we determined to sample it. We
were too small to cut it, and, as usual, we had no desire for the
crust. Each of us took one of the small loaves. and dug into it with
our little lists. The bread was still warm, and oh, how good! To-
gether we ate the third and last of the little round loaves, having
only the empty shell of each crust!
XYe knew that Mother did not allow us to lunch between meals,
and that of course she did not want us to eat her fresh bread in that
style. It never occurred to us that she would miss the three little
loaves, as there were four or five large ones left. But we did know
that if she found those crusts, she would whip us.
bread, and pointing to the crusts. XVe both realized that they must
be disposed of.
"I know !" I answered. "I'll twrap them up in paper, and hide
them under the shelf."
I found some old newspapers and made up a large bundle which
I awkwardly tied with string, and deposited as far under the pantry
shelves as I could.
Shortly after, Mother arrived and began to prepare dinner.
Father came home, and Mother went into the pantry to get the
bread. Ella and I heard her utter a low exclamation and say:
"Hell, where did those small loaves go?"
About that time Ella and I made a hurried exit from the kitchen.
and Father -followed Mother into the pantry.
In a few moments he called to us, and very timidly we came out.
Mother was holding the crusts in one hand, and the string and news-
paper in the other. I think she was trying hard not to smile.
But Ifather was very stern. 'Tome into the bed room." he sand.
We knew what that meant, and followed, trembling.
The greater punishment, however, was yet to follow. NYhen we
came to the dinner table, we found those crusts on our plates, and
Mother said: A
"Until you have eaten every crumb, you cannot taste another
"Where shall we put them?" Ella said, stuffing her mouth with thing." -F. 1-1.

In order to raise money for our work this year, we gave a Hal-
lOXYCiL'll Party in the high school assembly hall, charging a small fee
for admission. and also for the apples, popcorn. candy. and pumpkin
pies, which were sold at different booths.
At Thanksgiving and Christmas, we packed baskets, and, with
the aid of some of the boys, delivered them to some of
the needy families throughout the city, and many times during the
year, we have sent Howers to the sick and bereaved members of the
The Sunshine Society Party.
At three o'clock on the dismissal of school Friday, October
thirty-first, the high school building became a scene of confusion
and excitement in preparation for the Holloweien party to be given
that evening by the Sunshine Society. Loads of corn stalks and
dozens of pumpkin-faces appeared like magic and were set up i11
various nooks and corners, transferring the staid, commonplace
school room into a happy scene of joyful festivity and mirth.
Booths, arranged on the second floor of the building, gave the
high school the appearance of a fancy bazaar. There was the pie
booth, decked in yellow and black, displaying rows upon rows of
tempting pumpkin piesg the popcorn booth, with its decorations of
fodder and strings of pop-corn, piled high with sacks giving a
glimpse of snowy grains withing the candy booth, trimmed in orange
and black, exhibiting plates and plates of delicious candyg and the
apple booth, decked in red and yellow, showing heaps and baskets-
of polished, rosy-cheeked apples.
The fun began at seven-thirty o'clock, when the boys and girls,
en masque, began to arrive. ln the Grand March it was fortunate
that some did not have the often longed for
'fPower some giftie gie us,
To see ourselves as others see us,"
for most assuredly some of the dignified seniors and important
freshmen would never have allowed themselves to become partici-
pants in such a ludicrous procession. Dignitied beauties of the Co-
lonial period with up-to-date sports, gaudily dressed dancing girls
with sedate Puritansg pretty milk-maids with frolicsome bell-boysg
laughing Spanish girls with ludicrous clowns, calm japanese
girls with grotesque farmersg jolly Irish cooks with perfumed dan-
diesg stalking Indians with complacent Dutchmen,fall took their
place in line.
After the Grand March the masks were removed, and then fol-
lowed the very entertaining program of instrumental music, songs
and stories appropriate to the occasion. Prizes were then awarded,
one to the guest having the most picturesque and one to the guest
having the most grotesque costume. Lucy Scripture and Fred
Scripture, dressed as Lady Rowena and Ivanhoe, received the prize
for being the most picturesquely dressed, while Otis Stair, as a
did go! l'ies vanished like magicg popcorn disappeared in a twink-
lingg candy simply melted away, and the apples quickly became
nothing but cores. Big people, little people, old people, young peo-
ple. gay people, sad people-all mingled together eating, laughing
and chatting,-thoroughly enjoying themselves.
At last, all refreshments having mysteriously disappeared, the
fortune-tellers having amassed a comfortable fortune, and the hour
suffragette, won the prize for the most ridiculously dressed.
Then followed a general rush for the boothsg and how the "eats"
of eleven approaching, the guests in couples and groups left the
building which had never before been the scene of so much gaiety
The Sunshine Society is indebted to Miss Claybaugh whose or-
iginal ideas and valuable assistance were the chief factors in mak-
ing the entertainment a success.

lfriday, May the 9th, IQI3, was co11sidered by tl1e students of
several high schools to be one of the most important dates in their
school year. For then was held the annual oratorical contest at
Lebanon among the representatives of Frankfort, Crawfordsville,
Lebanon, Rushville, Noblesville and LaFayette. Accordingly. on
the eve of that eventful day, at about six thirty o'clock, the various
entrances of the Lebanon Higl1 School were guarded by groups
of eager students from the different schools. Hut, in about half an
hour, the large crowd, which had vigorously pushed and shoved
its way through the doors was seated in the spacious assembly
room. And, as soon as the ligl1ts were dashed, thus signalling the
time for the "rooting" of the different schools, the large room was
literally filled with voices. After the various schools had yelled and
sung to their heart's content and their throat's permission, and si-
lence was for the first time obtained, the Apollo Club of Frank-
fort High School sang two delightful selections.
At last, with every heart anxiously awaiting the one event of the
evening, the speakers from tl1e respective schools came on the plat-
form accompanied by Miss Letl1a Irwin of the Frankfort school,
who was the presiding officer. The first speaker announced by
Miss lrwin was XVilden Braun of Rushville, who had chosen fox
his oration the f'Affairs of Cuba' Mr, Braun was followed by
Robert Howe of Noblesville, who spoke 'fThe Turk Must tio", by
Alva Vycoop of Lebanon, who delivered the oration entitled
"Brutus", by Charles Downs of LaFayette whose oration was en-
titled "The Hero of Com.promises", by Basil Walters of Frankfort.
who delivered 'fThe Battle of Gettysburg", and lastly by Lael Ua-
vis of Crawfordsville, wl1ose speech was entitled, "Cuba Must lie
Ifreef' Each and every speaker did credit to himself and to his
school although all could not be winners.
To lessen the suspense felt by everyone, while the judges were
coming to a decision, tl1e jefferson Glee Club of LaFayette sang a
beautiful selection wl1ich was greatly appreciated by everyone.
Soon Mr. Stubbs, principal of the Frankfort High School, appeared
and announced that Crawfordsville was tl1e victor, much to the
pleasure of Crawfordsville and to the disappointment of the other
schools. The other high schools came as follows: LaFayette, sec-
ond, Frankfort, third, Lebanon, fourth, Rushville, fifth, and N0-
blesville, sixth. So ended the eventful day of May the 9th, IQI3.

Zibe literary Society
The F. H. S. Literary Society was founded in 1907. Since then,
the plan for holding meetings has changed almost yearly. For the
year 1913-1914 it was decided to have but four programs. These
were given by different departments of the school and were longer
and more elaborate than the more numerous ones of previous years.
About one hundred thirty-four fl34D pupils appeared in the three
programs, which consisted of music, recitations, papers on many
topics of interest, and stereoptican views. The first program was
held November 14, 1913. The Mathematics and Science Depart-
ments combined in furnishing the numbers. The beginning and the
end of the earth, modern inventions, notions and definition of num-
bers and the life of Luther Burbank were taken as subjects for dis-
cussion in the papers. A debate, "Resolved that more knowledge
is required to pursue a business profession than-is required to pur-
sue scientific farming," set forth splendidly both sides of the .pres-
ent perplexing question. On December 12, 1913, occurred the sec--
ond program. This was in charge of the History Department and
dealt with the subject of International Peace. The topics, "Those
who have aided in the Peace Movement," "The cost of VVar and
and Armamentf' "Heroes of Peace" and "Forces that make for
Peace" were chosen for discussion.
The third program took place on March 27, IQI4. The entire
afternoon was devoted to the enjoyment of the splendid program
arranged by the united efforts of the Latin and German depart-
ments. The two large choruses, one selected from the German stu-
dents and the other from the Latin, furnished the music. The
songs were given in the language which the students study in their
respective departments and in so far as it was possible native folk-
songs and national hymns were chosen from the German and the
Latin. An imaginary trip through Germany and Italy, aided by ster-
eoptican views was the principal feature. The views of Germany
represented, chieflly, some of the more important sights one would
see on a trip down the Rhine, and the Roman views dealt with
buildings and places of interest in and about Rome. The fourth lit-
erary program was under the direction of the English department,
but it was given after our Annual had gone to press.

During the spring term of 1913 an organization was started in
the high school with the prime purpose of promoting an interest in
the German language and the German people. That organization
has since been christened "The German Club," its work has been
diversifiedg its organization has been developed. Because of the
large amount of work required, and the comparatively small
amount of time available for such work, the original, fixed literary
purpose of the club has been merged into one of social as well as
The club meets fortnightly at the home of one of its members.
The business session, of course, occupies but a small portion of
each meeting. It is followed by an interesting and instructive pro-
gram of numbers by members of the club, and after this a purely
social hour is enjoyed. The literary programs are made up of Ger-
man musical numbers, recitations and short stories in simple Ger-
man, impersonations of familiar characters of German literature,
reports on the customs of the German people, and studies in the
government of the Germany of today. Occasionally some extem-
poraneous work is done in this hour, as, for instance, the telling
progressively of an original story. Frequently, in order that all

each member is required to present an anecdote in German as a
part of the program. The programs for the literary hour are se-

A large number of new members was admitted into the club at
the beginning of the spring semester 1914. As a reception to these,
the senior members gave a Wagner program, consisting of the stor-
ies upon which are based the operas, "Lohengrin", "Tannhauser",
"Parzifal", and "The Meistersingern, after each of which, a vic-

The club has done much to establish a friendship between the
pupils of the school who comprise its membership. It has afforded
its members hours of wholesome entertainment. Through the prac-

members have acquired a self-confidence in addressing a body of
friends, which is very desirable. It has stimulated an interest in
the German people, their life, customs, and government, and
through' this, an interest in all foreign peoples.

Un Friday night, March 6, IQI4, occured the fifth annual Tri-
angular Debate among the Frankfort, Lebanon, and Crawfordsville
High School teams. The affirmative team of Frankfort, andthe
negative team of Crawfordsville, debated in the Frankfort High
School assembly room before one of the largest crowds ever as-
sembled in that room. The question debated was, "Resolved, that
the State of Indiana should require that all laborers receiving less
than S800 per annum, be insured against sickness, accident, and
death, the expense to be borne by both employer and employe.
Ctfonstitutionality of this question is waivedjf' Frankfort's speak-
ers were Basil Walters, Carl Reed, and VValter Horlacher, while
the Crawfordsville speakers were Byrl Enoch, Harvey Breaks,
and Walter Remley. The presiding officer for the evening was Judge
The first affirmative speaker for the evening, Basil Walters, gave
a strong opening speech which showed that our present system for
providing payments for industrial accidents is inadequate. Carl
Reed, the second afflrmative speaker, pointed out the many ways
in which compulsory industrial insurance would remedy the exist-
Immediately after the clock in the Lebanon High School assem-
hly room had struck eight, Friday night, March 6, the members of
the atiirmative debating team of the Lebanon High School marched
upon the platform to the opposite side of the room, and took their
respective places. The members of the negative team, which was
from Frankfort, seated themselves calmly and confidently upon the
other side of the platform. The confusing noise of conversation in
ing evils. NValter Horlacher, the third affirmative speaker, gave
the reasons why compulsory industrial insurance would be prac-
tical, and why it would be a practical solution of society's duty to
injured and sick workmen and their families. His speech drew gen-
erous applause from the audience because of the forceful way in
which it was put. The affirmative rebuttal, which was given by
Basil VV alters, showed the ability of that young man as an extem-
The first two speakers for the negative, Beryl Enoch and Harvey
Breaks, proved that such a plan as the affirmative proposed was
unnecessary because of the existing conditions in Indiana. Walter
Remley, the third speaker, pointed out the defects in the proposed
plan. The rebuttal which was given by Beryl Enoch, was good and
showed the careful training which he had had.
The three judges of the debate, Professors H. F. Fore, A. H.
Daehler, and A. M. Kenyon, were from Purdue. A. H. Daehler
was the only judge who voted for Frankfort, thus giving the de-
cision to Crawfordsville.
JAMES OSTLER, '15.
the audience came to a dead silence and all faces turned towards
the -debators. Then'the chairman announced the question,--"Re-
solved: that the state of Indiana should require that all laborers
receiving less than S800 per annum be insured against sickness, ac-
cident, and death, the expense of such insurance to be borne by
both employer and employe. QThe constitutionality of this question
Mr. Herschel Richardson was the first speaker of the affirmative.
His speech was devoted mostly to the history and development of
industrial insurance in foreign countries and the United States. He
gave an outline of Indianafs present situation in reference to com-
pensation for industrial accidents and deaths, and stated the main
issues of the question. The second speaker, Mr. Frank Beck, out-
lined the plan of the affirmative in regard to industrial insurance.
It was necessary to do this in order to explain the question, and in
order to satisfy Dan Buck, the first negative speaker, who had de-
manded it. Mr. Beck could not proceed far toward the proof.
However, the third affirmative speaker, who was Mr. Herbert
Rensdall, dwelt entirely upon' the proof with which this team ex-
pected to win the debate. The third affirmative made a good ap-
pearance and a good speech. Mr. Farr afterwards said that he ex-
pected "that third affirmative speaker to take the judges just
Dan Buck, the first negative speaker, proved that compulsory in-
dustrial insurance is unnecessary, for he showed that 99M'7v of the
350,000 workmen in Indiana did not need it and could not use it.
He proved that the employer's liability law properly amended,
with more stringent laws, safe-guarding the workmen, will serve
our means. Dan's speech was excellent. His delivery, and his per-
sonality commanded the attention of the whole audience. Ralph
Vencill, the second negative speaker delivered his argument with
strength and force. The main issues that he handled were:
I. .Compulsory Industrial Insurance is impractical and is de-
moralizing to society.
He supported his contentions with evidence which showed that
financial burden and loss, it cannot be successfully put into opera-
tion, it does not accomplish its purpose. In his second main issue,
he showed that compulsory industrial insurance, where it is put
into operation, causes physical and mental deterioration to society,
increases dependency, and weakens the morals of people. Sylvester
Mersch, the third negative speaker, delivered his speech like a
vertiable Daniel VVebster. He defended the two last main issues,
The necessary features of compulsory industrial insurance as re-
quired under the terms of the question, are unjust.
Now followed the speakers of the rebuttal: Dan Buck, first, for
the negative, Herschel Richardson, second, for the affirmative.
Dan proceeded to destroy the affirmative's argument in whatever
points it had not already been destroyed. His rebuttal speech was
excellent and full of "pep". It was a model example of modern de-
bate. Herschel Richardson's rebuttal was very good also, and it is
safe to say that, if the first three affirmative speeches had been as
good as the rebuttal, the affirmative team might have won.
The decision, after a moment of suspense to all concerned, was
returned unanimously in favor of Frankfort.
The chief causes for this victory were: first, Mr. Farr's un-
selfish giving of himself, second, his ability to manufacture debat-
orsg third, the quality of the manufactured product, fourth, accord-
ing to the judges, the debators' ability to keep their important points
before the audience.
Lebanon had never been defeated at home before, but of course
they could not expect to win every debate at home any more than
Napoleon could win every battle he fought. So, like Napoleon, they

A Down'-But Not a Touch-down.
There is a grey sky above and the cold ground beneath, no sun-
shine, yet it is not cold, a soft field, yet it is not wet. It is just that
sort of weather that makes late fall and early winter endurable, just
those conditions for which the heart of every true foot-ball enthusi-
ast yearns, but that heart is seldom satisfied so completely as it is
on this day, the day of the great game of the season, that of F. H. S.
vs. R. H. S.
The game is called early, but the bleachers and side lines are
packed earlier. From the time of the starting whistle, it is a battle-
royal. Each eleven has found its equal, but neither will claim the
other to be superior. Not a foot is gained by either team without a
Fight, not a foot is lost without a struggle. The wild surging masses
on the side lines betray the fact that there is no lack of interest.
Thus the game continues through the first half, without any ma-
terial results on either side, and without either team scoring a touch-
lf the first half closed with vim, then the second half opens with
greater spirit. In the first half, the game had been chiefly one of
forceand straight playing, but the second half begins with a trick
play on the part of our boys, and continues, one trick after another,
wheeling and passing, a plunge or a glorious run around end, and
an occasional punt, such tactics and judgment as even the great Cae-
sar might have envied, were here. And so the game progresses, see-
sawing back and forth across the field, and from end to end, until
with only two minutes to play, the ball is in our possession and only
ten feet from the chalk line which means victory for the F. H. S.
Now, indeed, the game is interesting. Only three downs, and two
minutes in which to gain ten feet, against a formidable foe, which,
crouched there on the defensive, looks to be impenetrable. No time
now for the uncertain kick. Force alone will win for the blue and
The first down carries us forward four feet against that wall of
human shoulders. Only one-half minute and six feet to gain. Again
the captain lines up his men, this time in the form of a phalanx,
aimed directly at the enemies center. The ball is snapped, and the
two walls meet. The result cannot be seen immediately, for under
that stack of writhing bodies, is the ball. But whose arm is it un-
der? How near to that chalk line upon which these bodies of mus-
cle are stacked, is it? '
The whistle of the time-keeper proclaims that time is up and that
the game is either lost or won, as a result of that play.
The bodies begin to resume the upright position of men again,
and amid straining eyes, the referee bends over a limp form in
whose hands is clasped the ball, just six inches from the chalk. One
minute more would have meant victory for F. H. S. '
Thus ended a great game and a great day, a game with a score
of o-0 and a day with a score of exciting but happy hours for F.

The Track Meet at Lebanon. A
ln spite of the cold, drizzling rain on May 16, IQI3, athletics in
their various colors were to be seen, running to and fro in an effort
to "warm up". The large amphitheater overlooking the track was
crowded with rooters from the six different schools: Rushville,
Lfrawfordsville, Lafayette, Noblesville, Frankfort, and the home
school, Lebanon. Each school seemed confident of victory.
The meet began with the hundred yard dash and the discus hurl.
Here XValton, the Noblesville star, won the dash as usual. Lebanon
easily won the discus throw by hurling it over a hundred-six feet.
As the afternoon passed, the events proved Noblesville to be far
superior to the other schools. lts Cottingham and VValton were the
individual stars. The former proved to be a "dark horse", winning
in four events and breaking four association records, namely, the
high jump, the pole vault, the half and quarter mile dashes.. Wal-
ton came off with the hundred yard dash, and the shot put. Other
events were: the mile run, won by Lafayetteg the two-twenty yard
hurdles, won by Crawfordsvilleg the broad jump, won by Nobles-
ville. The relay race was won by Crawfordsville.
As the winner of each event was announced, the winning school
went wild. However, Frankfort's rooters did not often go wild.
ln fact, only once did "Yea, F. H. S." come faintly to me over the
track, half drowned by Noblesville's "Yea, Cottinghamf The only
three points won by Frankfort were those taken by Sheets, in the
half mile. Yet we did not get last place, and that was some con-
The meet was won by Noblesville by the narrow margin of two
points over Fairmount Academy, which came second with fourteen
and one half points.
Earlham College, situated at Richmond, managed the Meet splen-
didly, and should be congratulated for the manner in which she en-
tertained her visitors. The contestants were showed over the cam-
pus and college buildings and in the evening were served an excel-
lent lunch by the girls of the college. After lunch the President of
the College made a speech in behalf of Earlham, which was fol-
lowed by songs sung by the glee clubs, and quartette. The day
closed with the awarding of medals and cups to winners of the
events. GAIL CAVE.
The State Track Meet.
At Richmond on May 17, 1913, the tenth annual Track and Field
Meet of tl1e I. H. S. A. A. took place. One hundred and ninety-
seven entries represented the 39 schools. This great number of
entries made the meet very interesting and kept the enthusiasm at
a high pitch until the last event was decided.
The weather was line and the track in good condition. After sev-
eral trial heats in the hundred and two-twenty yard dashes, Vtlalton
of Noblesville qualified for the finals and won both events. His
time in the hundred yard dash was 10:3-5 seconds and in the two-
twenty yard dash was 24 flat. The four-forty yard dash was won
by D. Sims of Bloomfield, his time being 54:2-5 seconds. Cotting-
ham won third place for Noblesville.
ln the half-mile dash, Milholland of M. T. H. S. led the group of
twenty runners within one hundred yards of the tape, when Sheets
of Frankfort passed him, winning first honors. The race was close
from start to finish, the runners sparring for every inch of ground
gained, and all finishing within a few yards of the winners.. Sheets'
time was 2:09, only two seconds under the state record. In an
easier fashion, Brown of M. T. H. S. took the mile run in 4:4814-5.
The low hurdles were won by McAlvey of Crawfordsville, who
made the race in 28:2-5 seconds. The high hurdles was won by
Vermillion of Anderson, time I7 :2- 5 seconds.
NVhile these events were going on, the following Field events
took place. The pole vault was won by Gaddis of Fairmount Acad-
emy, height ten feet, high jump by Monahan of Fairmount, height
five feet six inches ,the broad jump by W'alton of Noblesville, dis-
tance 19. 5 feet, the shot put by Morrison of Fairmount, who broke
the state record by puttingthe shot 44 feet 2 inches. The discus
hurl was won by Gaddis of Fairmount, distance 107 feet.
The relay was won by Crawfordsville a few inches ahead of the
Evansville team. CLAUDE SHEETS,
Although F. H. S.'s basket-ball record for this past winter's sea-
son was not high, we are proud of the ever hopeful five, the subs,
and Coach Turley, for, considering the little experience the team
has had and the difficulties encountered by the crudity of the gym-
nasium, we may say our team did very good work. Also, other
teams were formed ,by active members of the high school and these
teams played curtain-raisers to the big games. This was good
practice for the boys, and with the training under Coach Turley,
whose patient, untiring work cannot be overestimated, several of
these men will be "in trim", and ready to fill the vacancies on the
high school team next year. In addition to the work this year of
laying a foundation for a strong team., we have been the proud vic-
tors in several games. Next year the team will have the advantage
of a new gymnasium with a first-class basket-ball fioor and equip-
ments. Not only are the teams looking forward with great interest
to the completion of the "gym',, but also the faculty, the student
body, and the public. Previously they have not been enthusiastic
about the games played, largely because of the unfavorable condi-
tions found in the "gym." Now' that these difficulties will soon be
overcome, and there is every prospect for a good team, we hope to
have a better season next year.
For the year 1913, the old football "pep" came back to F. H. S.
with the season. There was plenty of material for two efficient
teams. As a result, the boys in the Senior class united with those
in the Freshman class, and formed a team to go against a combina-
tion team of junior and Sophomore boys. A series of three games
were to have been played to decide the championship of the school.
However, it was unnecessary to play the third game.
In the first game, played in October, the Junior-Sophomore team
started like a house afire, but it was soon extinguished. The Senior-
Freshman team won with a score standing I7 to 6. Joe Stafford
and Caroll Shaw were the stars for the junior-Sophomore team.
On the other team, "Brick" Pence, "Irish" Corbett, and "Pony"
Freas were the mainstays.
The next game, played two or three weeks later, was more easily
won by the Senior-Freshman team. The score was I3 to 0. The
head work of Freas, the defense of the line, particularly Faust's,
and the spectacular gains of Corbett and Pence made it possible to
win the second game. Moreover, the Senior girls had promised the
Senior boys a chicken-supper, provided they won the championship.
That promised chicken-supper played no little part in winning the
victory. Thus ended football for the season of 1913 in the Frank-
fort High School. PRENTICE COAPSTICK.

Christmas time to the poor. The
practice was carried on this year
as before, but in the Presbyterian
church, it was changed slightly.
As usual the gifts were collected
and sent to the poor and needy of
the city, but, in addition, each per-
son who belonged to the Sunday
School or the church was to give
a "NVhite Gift to the King." The
plan was taken from an old Chi-
nese tradition. This says that one
year an ancient king of the Chi-
nese required each of his subjects
to make him a white gift because
white: was symbolic of purity. So
it was decided that each person
was to give something of his own
self to God. To further this plan.
lists and envelopes were sent out to
the members and they were re-
quested to indicate their gifts on
the lists, and, after enclosing the
lists in the envelopes, hand the en-
xelopes into the officers of the Sun-
One of these lists found its way
into a home in the northern part
of the city where there was a little
boy and two little girls. VVhen the
youngest girl, whom everyone
called "Bobby" started to mark off
the list the gift she intended to
make to God that Christmas, she
told her father that she would
study her Sunday School lesson,
study hard at school, and would
not quarrel with her brother.
Now "Bobby" was very high
tempered and when she lost con--
trol of herself, she made everyone
around her miserable. So her
father suggested that in addition
to her other promises, that she
would promise to try to control her
"Bobby" thought on this a few
minutes and then said:
"XX'ell, papa, I'll just do that. I'll
be a good girl until I have to put
on clean underwear and clean hose,
and then I'll get mad. -L. A.

The First Scratch.
One day when baby was sick,
Mother brought her a little kitten.
Much pleased with this new play-
thing, Baby turned it up-side down,
tried its tail to see whether it would
come off, and by many other
pranks excited it. Later in the day,
Mother heard a cry, and rushed
headlong up-stairs only to find Ba-

"The First Experience of the Bell
At 5 :40 P. M. the Lake Erie pas-
senger train whistled for Frank-
fort. From every direction the
members of the Bell Glee Club
came running with coats thrown
on, and hats on one side, greatly
excited for fear of missing the
train. But by the time the train
had started, each girl was in her
place, her hat on straight, the shine
on her nose gone, and her hand-
satchel in the rack, prepared for
the twenty minute journey to Scir-
cleville for the purpose of making
money to buy new music for the
Frankfort High School.
XVhen they reached Scircleville,
they got off on the muddy highway
and went to the church, the place
of the entertainment.
About 6:30 people began to
come, and in half an hour there
were. at least, twenty-five people.
The girls marched out, when they
saw no one else was coming, terri-
fied and shaking for fear of not
making a good impression.
During the long program, the
people became weary, and one or
two fell asleep. The girls were

A young lady attending one of
the well known colleges of this
state entered a class in horticul-
ture. She had never interested
herself before in the work, b11t now
she determined to make a good
grade, if possible. Therefore she
listened attentively to the lectures,
and made copious notes.
After a certain length of time,
notebooks were to be handed in.
One of the topics which she was to
write about was, "How the rows of
vegetables in the garden should be
planted." She worked studiously
on the manuscript, and handed it
in with pride.
The instructor was surprised and
amused to find the following state-
ment about the rows of vegetables
in the garden: "Vegetables should
be planted in rows running north
and south, so the sun can shine on
the east side in the morning, and
the west side in the afternoon."

"The Cerise Hat."
One day Miss H went to
Madame's exclusive shop to look
at hats. Some were pretty, some
otherwise, some impossible. Some
were of good shape, but of bad
color. There was one in particular
she liked very much, but it was of
vivid cerise. She tried it on, she
turned this way and thatg she liked
its size, the front, the back, the
straw-everything, in fact, but the
color. She could not imagine her-
self wearing a cerise hat. The
obliging Madame suggested that
she might have a hat made after
the model in any color she liked.
She took a soft straw and fash-
ioned it into the desired shape,
brought out suitable trimmings,
and in a very short time. the hat
was all planned to Miss H--'s en-
XYith final instructions as to
when the hat should be ready and
delivered, Miss H -- gathered
up her belongings and moved to-

when she saw a puzzled look on the
Madame's face. She asked if there
was anything else to be talked over,

The Little Mail-Man.
jimmy O'Moore, aged four and
one-half years, was sitting on the
front steps amusing himself with a
rubber ball. The mail-man passed
and left a letter in the O'Moore
mail-box. jimmy, who had never
seen a post-man before, rushed out
to the gate and watched him dis-
tribute his letters with great inter-
est. While hanging on he gate,
jimmy was "struck" with a bright
idea. He hurried into the house,
put on one of his father's caps, and
rushed up stairs to his mother's
room. After pulling everything
out of her bureau drawers, he
found a package of old letters.
Mischievous Tommy was delighted
and he hurried out into the street.
A half hour later, jimmy returned
looking very happy and innocent,
but not a letter was to be seen.
After lunch jimmy and Mrs.
O'Moore went to the thimble party
at a neighbor's house. It was
rather late when they arrived, and
the lawn was strewn with busy
women sewing and chatting. When
the ladies spied Mrs. O'Mo0re
coming up the walk, they began to
whisper and smile knowingly to
each other. liven the hostess
looked as though she were trying
to suppress a giggle. Mrs. O'Moore
felt very much offended indeed,
but the hostess soon came up, and
after speaking with her for a few
minutes, handed her a package.
Mrs. O'Moore opened the package
wonderingly, and to her great mor-
tilication and anger, she found all
her old love-letters which James
O'Moore, Senior, had sent to her
before their marriage.
"VVhat is the meaning of this?"
she cried with great heat and an-
just then Jimmy, who had been
playing with a large dog, came up
and spied the letters.

great wonder, "Why, those is the

houses this morning like the mail-
man. Does the mail-man always

butes 'em?" -M. M.

An Observant Young Lady.
One day, when a little friend and
I were coming home from the city
on the street car, she chanced to
notice the lady in front of us. She
was a very observant miss of four
and, if she saw anything out of the
ordinary, she would draw her own
conclusions. This lady had on a
turban with a very small brim,
which gave it a rather odd ap-
pearance. I noticed Ruby was
very quiet, but I said nothing to
her. VVhen we got off the car,
Ruby turned to me and said:
"Did you see that hobble-hat?"

Uncle Frank was an old man
from the plains of Kansas. He was
visiting relatives in Indianapolis.
The city had furnished many
things of interest to the old man,
and he had spent the whole day
and most of the evening in seeing
them. At last, about half past ten
o'clock, he paused in front of a
cigar store. There was a large
electric sign in front of the store,
made in such a manner that the
lights flashed on and off at regular
intervals. For a few seconds the
old man watched this sign with
amazement. Then a broad smile
crossed his face, and, just as the
lights went out, he exclaimed, "B .t

with mischief. His little imagina-

Fighting implements with whom he,
the young brave, was expected to
conquer these dreaded animals.
Sometimes he carried this play too
far, and then Milly was always ea-
ger to tell mother that Teddy had
injured one of the domestic fowls.
But one day Milly told too soon.
Little Brother, as usual, was fight-
ing his imaginary foes, the chick-
ens being the foes and a stick his
sword. He struck one of his foes
too hard and stunned it. Milly,
thinking the chicken was dead, be-
gan to tell her mother, but before
she could finish her sentence, the
chicken had run away. Not to be
outdone, she finished her sentence
by saying, HO mamma, Teddy
killed a chicken, but didn't kill it
dead." -c. G.

A High School Love Story.
In a certain small high school a
young girl and a young boy were
very much in love with each other.
They were in the habit of writing
love-notes and placing them in the
dictionary at the front of the as-
sembly for each other.
One morning the love-sick girl
wrote to the boy: "George, I shall
never cease to love you, never, no
never." She then placed the note
in the dictionary. A mischievous
boy, seeing the girl take the note.
walked to the book before the one
for whom it was intended could go,
slipped the note into his pocket,
and returned to his seat.
At the end of the next intermis-
sion the mischievous boy, intent on
teasing the love-sick girl, and not
realizing that the bell had rung
and that everything was quiet,
called out in a loud tone of voice
to the girl across the aisle, "Hat-
tie, I shall never cease to love you,
never, no never."
The amazed teacher in charge,
not knowing about the note, spoke
sharply to the boy, saying, "Don't
be so loud about your love-making,
