THE POWER OF LOVE Xinth Grade Prize Story ' ' Thomas! Thomas! " called an imperative voice, " where is Miss Florence? It is time for her music lesson. " ' " Sure. Marm. and I can ' t say. " " All right. Thomas, that do. ' " and the figure vanished into the house again. The old man heaved a patient sigh, and turned back to his work again. A little while after this conversation Thomas was again called from his labors by a sweet voice calling anxiously. " Thomas, has mother called me? " " Yes, little Missy, and sure ye better be fer hun -in ' . " At his words the little girl ran into the house and soon the nerve-racking sound of a child playing a piece of music which she had not practiced ven,- carefully reached the ears of old Thomas, the gardener. Florence Courtney was the only child of ]Mr. and Mrs. Edward Courtney. The Courtney mansion was famed all over for its beautiful garden. lagnificent trees shaded hidden nooks. Precious ferns and flowers grew there, and emerald lawns stretched from one end of the grounds to the other. " ' hen this sound was heard by Thomas, a loving smile crossed his face and he whispered to himself. " I Iy little missy is as sweet and happy as the day is long. WTiat would we do " " ithout her? " But alas! There came a day when the little one did not pay her daily visit to Thomas, when she lay in her small bed still and pale, while doctors and nurses hurried back and forth with grave faces. There came a night when all present knew that the illness had reached a crisis. Outside the door, waiting anxiously for news, stood Mr. Courtney and his wife, their faces pale and grief-stricken. As they waited the door was opened, and the doctor came out of the room. His face was alight T " ith gladness, for he was the carrier of good news that little Florence would recover. Great was the joy throughout the household, for the child, though only eight years of age, was a favorite with all. But they rejoiced too soon, for the small invalid rested on her couch day after day, pale and languid. The doctor ' s face became graver each day, and he said, " Can ' t something be done to rouse that child? " oMrs. Courtney shook her head with weary despair, for her patience was almost at an end. The next morning when she entered the sick room, she was greeted by this statement: " Mother, when that rose outside my window dies, I shall die too. " At first this seemed onh- a joke, but Florence, with a sick child ' s fancy, became almost obsessed with the idea, and she really came to believe that when the rose died, she would die also. After a few days the rose rilted. until finally Thomas, who had heard the stor} ' , conceived of the idea of each night plucking off the old rose and placing a new one in its place. One night a terrible storm arose, the wind blowing such a gale that it was almost impossible to rithstand it. Thomas, however, as ever - night before, climbed his ladder and replaced the rose. But tonight Thomas, in his haste to be through with his labor of love, failed to place the ladder securely against the house. In descend-

YE SCHOOLE GOSSIPE With Apologies to K. C. B. It surely is A problem to get By one ' s locker In the Girls ' locker room Because all the girls Are standing in front Of their own lockers 5 And taking the shine From their noses ■ Or combing their hair And one has to squeeze And push and elbow To get by at all. And the very best thing It seems to me Would be to invent f: Some " contraption " ❖ By which each one Could be suspended if; In the air long enough 4; To powder her nose Or else have elevated Walks for the ones =i: 4; Who deem their studies More important. I thank you. — Frances Merrill, H9. WHEN FRIDAY COMES When Friday comes what joy you see! We leave our books right willingly. The teachers are as glad as we, They ' re just as pleasant as can be, When Friday comes. We do not heed the teachers ' calls, " Go softly, students, down the halls. " We never study late that day. We hasten home to rest or play, When Friday comes. All week the children toil away. They work by night as well as day, Though wrinkled is each thoughtful brow, The wrinkles fade away somehow, When Friday comes. — Dorothy Logan, L8. " DETENTION, SIR " With Apologies to Longfellow The classes were exchanging rooms; The sewing class was at its looms; When through the hall did rush a youth Whose ears were ringing with this truth, " Detention, sir. " His class around the comer swerved; He tried to join it unobserved; In hope he might escape the word His conscience had already heard, " Detention, sir. " But suddenly there struck his ear A voice that filled his soul with fear; A voice of deep and solemn tones That chilled the marrow of his bones, " Detention, sir. " — Stuart Mc-Whood, L8.

ing, the ladder fell, pinning the gardener beneath it. The next morning the maid, taking in the milk, discovered Thomas, stiff and cold, but with a smile upon his lips which seemed to say: " I am happy; grieve not. " Gradually Florence was made to see the foolishness of her idea, and as she grew stronger was told of the death of Thomas. Now the little girl plays in the garden again, and as she comes to the place where Thomas worked, her eyes fill with tears, and she thinks of the humble old man, who loved her better than life itself. — Carolyn Cook, H9.
