The Mystic Whisk- Broom
Millicent B. Rex
IIEN I was last in the South, I heard a most amazing story from a young
lawyer who was staying at my boarding-honse. It was one of those
cold winter evenings in Georgia when one sadly misses the warmly built
houses of the North and every one hovers about the open Ere.
Certainly it was a strange tale. He told it as if he believed it himself, and
gave the addresses of the people who had seen the events he described, but I
have never taken the trouble to write to them, so I do not vouch for the truth
of the narrative, but simply tell it as he told it that evening.
'tl don't expect you to believe this story," he began. "lf anybody told
it to me, I wouldn't believe him either. It sounds like the biggest lie you ever
heard. But here it is, anyway.
"I was boarding with a doctor's family one winter in the little Georgia
town of --. At Christmas they gave me a handsome silver whisk-broom,
which I kept hanging on the wall by my dresser. As time went on, I noticed
when I came home every evening that the whisk-broom seemed to have been
disturbed-invariably I found it lying on the floor in front of the bureau, each
day in precisely the same place. l thought maybe some one had been in the
habit of using it-perhaps the maid-and gave the matter no more considera-
tion outside of a slight annoyance at their carelessness in leaving it on the floor.
Some time later, however, one night about one or two o'clock, I suddenly
became wide awake, almost as if some one had roused me, and yet apparently
from no particular cause. Presently I discovered an astonishing fact. The
whisk-broom, which I distinctly remembered having hung up before I retired,
was lying in its usual spot before the dresser in a little circle of strange, white
light. The glow was not being cast upon the brush from any point in the room,
but seemed rather to radiate from the brush itself. As I watched it, the broom
rose from the floor and was drawn up into the air several feet, the halo of light
moving about it. There it hung, seemingly without any support. At this
point the brush began to cavort madly, then its antics settled into a slow,
rhythmical dance, still hanging in the air in the weirdest manner possible. I
observed all this in blank amazement for a few seconds, then suddenly sprang
out of bed and touched the broom. The light went out, and the brush dropped
to its accustomed place upon the floor. I picked it up, and laid it on the bureau.
Then I returned to bed.
"The next morning at breakfast I told the doctor and his family about my
experiences. I confess they had a good deal of amusement at my expense,
the only thing that stood in my favor was that where the broom had come in
contact with my hand a welt, or blister, had arisen, somewhat like a burn. The
medical man shook his head over it.
" 'Never saw a burn like that before, Fletcher,' he said, and he looked at
me queerly. 'But, just the same, I can't believe that Hsh story.' A ,
" 'But I saw it,' I protested.
" 'I'm afraid there's something the matter with you, young man,' said the
doctor. 'I'll tell you what I'll dog I'll sleep with you to-night myself, and if I
see it, by Jane, I'll believe it, for there's nothing wrong with me, I know.'
"I agreed, and so it was arranged. At about the same time as on the
preceding night, I was awakened in the same peculiar way. Sure enough, there
was the whisk-broom gaily prancing as before. I woke the doctor, and, much
to my relief, for I was beginning to have an uneasy feeling that perhaps the
trouble was with me, and not with the brush after all, he saw it also, with how
much perplexity you can guess. While we were looking at it, the light went
out, and the brush fell to the floor as it had previously done. It was there in
the morning when we arose.
"The doctor at last believed my story. Together we investigated every
possible place from which a practical joke could have been played upon us, and,
after a long search, reluctantly gave up that idea. For a week or more, I saw
the whisk-broom perform its peculiar rites every night, and each evening found
it oft' its peg and lying on the rug.
"The news of my adventure by this time was being noised about the little
town, and at length I was approached by one of the residents, though a stranger
to me-a Spiritualist-who said that his wife had died in the room I was now
occupying, and that he believed she was trying to communicate with him
through the extraordinary manifestations of my whisk-broom-though why she
should choose so ridiculous a medium as a whisk-broom is beyond my under-
standing, especially since he said whisk-brooms had never had any particular
significance in her life. He asked to spend the night with me to see if further
demonstrations would develop, and I consented. He, too, saw the singular
display, but, in spite of his presence, nothing more than usual happened.
"Then the professor ol: science at the college desired to get a glimpse of
this 'remarkable phenomenium,l and he, too, went away battled, and so time
went on. I was becoming quite used to my whisk-broom's actions after this
interval, but, nevertheless, I admit they did bother me.
"A few months later I chanced to attend the St. Louis Exposition, and as
I was passing through the midway in the midst of a crowd, a Hindoo fortune--
teller ran out from her booth, and cried for me to stay. Somewhat annoyed,
I tried to pass on.
" 'Stop, sir! I have a message for you. I have seen your face for days.
Sir, I must tell you,' she persisted. 'Comet'
" 'It is this, sir,' she continued, as I yielded, 'only this. You are worried
about something. It is a matter connected with something you use-a toilet
article-a hair-brush-No! A button hook-No! Wait-a whisk-broom-
Yes! A whisk-broom. Don't let this worry you, it will come out all right at
last. lt will bring you good fortune, as long as you keep it.'
" 'A strange thing, wasn't it?' said the young lawyer. Well, my course
at the college was finished in the spring, and I left the town, carrying my whisk-
broom with me. But, do you know, it never danced in the night after I left
that room, and never has yet, although every time I travel anywhere, and pack
that brush in the bottom of my bag, to this very day when I open the valise the
whisk-broom is always lying on top, no matter how deep I pack it, or what I
put over it. Otherwise the Hindoo was right, it has ceased to bother me. But
I have ye to see the promised good fortune. There, I told you you wouldn't
believe it," as incredulous glances passed around, "and I don't wonder!"
The Spirit of 191 7
Alumni Prize Essay Isabel K. Strawbridge
N the seventh of April, 1917, the United States declared war on
Germany. The Stars and Stripes waved from every window.
Patriotism was at flood-tide. Everywhere men were leaving their own
affairs and enlisting to serve their country. The same spirit was mani-
fested by old and young: to put down the Kaiser, cost what it might of blood
Following this declaration of war, the nation set forth a loud call for
volunteers. The call was quickly responded to, and training camps were soon
Glled with men, willing to give their lives for a noble and just cause. Also the
National Guardsmen, who had been in training on the Mexican border, were
speedily equipped and sent across to join the Allied troops. Then came the
selective draft. All men between the ages of twenty-one and thirty-one years
were called to aid their country, and, after a few months' training, transport
after transport filled with American troops sailed out of the Atlantic ports in
the dead of night to join the forces already over seas.
- And later, when the American boys had been fighting a month or two,
the casualty lists came pouring in. The death toll grew larger day after day,
and the American people began to realize, more than ever, that we were in a
great conflict and that many sacrifices would have to be made in order to make
the world again safe for democracy.
And now, after four years of a terrible war, all Europe will rest in peace.
The tyrant has been put down, forced to acknowledge his own defeat, and
recognize the power and authority of the Allied nations. It has been a conflict
for the sake of democracy. Great battles have been fought. There have been
deeds of sublimest heroism and exhibitions of patriotism which shall stir the
hearts of those who are to live in the coming ages. Men, who at the beginning
of this war were scarcely known beyond their homes, are now numbered among
those names which will never die.
But as we look back over those four years and think of the numberless
hardships, our boys have endured, we wonder at their marvelous spirit. Do you
realize, my friends, the rough road they have traveled, sacrincing all the com-
forts of home, facing the most disheartening circumstances, and, at the same
time running the risk of their lives? Can you picture their life in the trenches
and their struggle on the battlefield?
Let us take a trip over that same road and see their spirit in its true light.
We will let our imagination carry us across the briny deep, thence through the
English Channel to Northern France. This country was, but five years ago,
inhabited by a happy, peace-loving people. lts beautiful historical buildings
were the pride of its citizens. But it is uninhabited now and everything is in
ruins. Things are gone which can never be replaced. Everywhere can be
seen finger prints of the destructive hand of the Hun.
Now we will rnove a little south-east toward the battle front. Many miles
behind the lines can be seen numberless rows of crosses and various other
markers. Thousands who have made the supreme sacrihce are here sleeping
under French skies. They have been laid here by their more fortunate com-
rades, who vowed to take revenge for their deaths.
Further on we can see huts of various kinds, rudely constructed and float-
ing that wonderful flag of mercy-the Red Cross. The first sight which greets
our eyes on entering the hut is a band of queenly figures dressed in the costume
of the "Mothers of the World." They move back and forth so quickly that
one might mistake them for an apparitioii. They are the well-known Red
Cross nurses and a God-send to our boys over there.
Next in view is a crowd of "Yanks," playing their favorite game of "Swat
the Kaiser." Every one seems extremely excited, and those poor unfortunates
who are unable to sit up are greatly amused by this little vaudeville show.
Their smiling faces tell us how happy they are, but behind each smile gleams a
ray of hope. Their main ambition is to get on the Hring line once again in
order to take revenge for their comrades who have fallen. Does this not show
wonderful spirit? Could you be happy after going through the hardships of
the battlefield and being brought back, minus an arm or leg or with a partly
shattered face? Could you smile after having seen your comrades fall beside
you and pass into the 'Great Beyond?" Could you go back and suffer the
same hardships all over again?
A few more miles of imaginary travel brings us to the trenches. The
sights we see here do not bring to our minds memories of the dead or wounded,
or of the devastation of the soil, but of mud-everlasting mud. lt is not the
kind the American children use in playing "bakers," but is a greenish, yellowish
slimy mixture. ln these trenches our boys have lived and fought for one or
two months at a time, in mud. There seemed to be no escape from it, no
corner where they could be free of the oozy horror. But months of 'troughing
it" are easily borne, when, after that, if only for a few days, one can return to
civilized life and all that it meansg just as the crossing of a desert is rendered
tolerable by the oases that break its barren solitude. This was the feeling of
every American boy who fought in our trenches since 1917. The dreams of a
little hut, where they would be sent after the battle, enabled them to bear their
sufferings without complaint. Even the thoughts of a removal, no matter
where, were enough to enable them to go through the hardships which might
have otherwise eventually crushed their spirit.
Everywhere along the front, a few miles behind the trenches, thousands
of delightful shelters have sprung up against the mud like so many oases, and in
the midst of all the ruins and desolation of nature numbers of small huts are
to be seen bearing the familiar letters of Y. M. C. A.
Great shouts and applauses from within tell us that our boys are having a
good time and are happy, that their spirits have not been crushed, that they
are recovering from the great nervous strain of the battlefield, and that they
are once again enjoying a few of the many home comforts. The "Y" huts, as
the Yanks call them, are homes for the time being, and are the places which
make them think they are again back in the good old U. S. A.
lt is while in these huts that those long, interesting letters are written to
home folk and friends, which show the unselfisli and modest motives our boys
have. Their spirit is one to be admired, for it is not to themselves that they
give the credit of victory, but rather to the French and English. ln a letter to
his home folks one Yank writes: "We men have been disappointed in the forte
of the home letters that have recently come. They strike the note as if the
Yanks are doing all the fighting, as if the Americans were winning the warg as
though the tremendous sacrifices of the past four years of the Allies are all to be
"There's a little too much of the 'We'lI show you how. We'll win this little
war for you.' The part that we have so far taken in the actual battles has not
been overplayed by the newspapers so far as we have seen those accounts, but
you folks have exaggerated them. For instance, we are given credit for win-
ning the great victory on the line from Soissons to Rheims. Now, on that
whole front the troops that took actual part in the battles, that did the fighting,
that won those great scraps, were divided fairly, and only fifteen per cent. were
Yanks. Eight-tive per cent. of the lighting was not done by us. We boys are
making good as well as we know how, but we know too well how really small
an actual share we have, how much belongs to those glorious French and the
others. But don't you folks back home get too chesty and let the notion run
away with you that America is doing it. She is doing some, a little, yes, but
our Allies are taking the brunt of it. Our losses are nothing in comparison
wth theirs. We shall probably take a greater part in it later and will have to
supply the balance that will tip the scales, but even then, when we do that, don't
let us forget what has gone before in those awful four years."
This is only one of many thousands of letters of this kind, sent to America
during the last four years. Although our boys are too proud to admit it, we
know only too well the long months of hardships through which they have
fought. Not only is their unselfishness shown by the tone of their letters, but
also by their actions.
Their thoughts are not of themselves, and the great opportunities they are
sacrificing, but of those at home, especially mother. They think only of her
sacrifices, and are happy in their thoughts that some day they will go back
A very pathetic story, which brings out clearly the unselfish spirit of our
Yanks is told by Stephane Lauzanne, a member of the French Commission to
the United States: "It was in 1915, near Verdun. Overlooking the entire plain
of Woevre was a terrible hill, the name of which will always be spelled in blood-
red letters in this war's history. It was the Eparges hill, where a heroic
hand-to-hand struggle had been progressing for one year. The right side of
the hill belonged to the Germans, who held on to it, the left side was held by the
French and Americans, and the top belonged to no one, or rather it belonged
to the dead who covered il, and whom it had not even been possible to bury.
That hill was the terror of all who had to go up. One evening, a few miles from
there, I met a young soldier walking along, a flower in his buttonhole, gayly
singing a song. He seemed so happy that I could not help stopping him.
'Why are you so cheerful?' I asked. 'Next week, sir,' was the answer, 'I am
going home to my mother in America. I have been assigned to train some of my
countrymen to fight, and the camp to which I have been commissioned happens
to be on the outskirts of my home town. Probably you think I am a slacker
for being so happy to get home, but I assure you, sir, such is not the case. I
am happy, but it is because of mother. I know it will cheer her good heart to
see me once again and know that I am well and happy. But for her, I should
have declined the appointment and stayed on this side to fight with my com-
rades. Tomorrow I shall spend another forty-eight hours taking the Eparges
trench, and then I shall go.' He gave me his name and the name of his cap-
tain, who happened to be a friend of mine, and off he went lightly singing his
"By chance I met his captain a week later, and, as the lad with his song
and cheerfulness had awakened my interest and sympathy, I asked about him.
I told the captain the story I had heard and then asked, 'How is he? Has he
gone hom yet?' 'Yes,l replied the captain, sadly. 'He has gone home. He
went West the day before yesterday at Eparges? He then told me the sad
story of how a shot had caught the boy full in the chest. He fell and death
came almost immediately. His captain was beside him, trying, as he lay there
moaning, to soothe and comfort. 'Be brave, my boy,' he said. And the
answer came in short breaths, 'l am brave, but would be still braver if I could
have made mother happy by a visit before I died.' "
- Although we can never forget the spirit shown by our boys, we are ready,
now that the cannons have ceased roaring and some of our boys are coming
home, to forget the horrors of this war. But some we can never blot out.
Sweet memories of the heroic dead will forever be in our minds.
"Song of peace, nor battle's roar,
Ne'er shall break their slumbers more,
Death shall keep his solemn trust,
Earth to earth, and dust to dust."
Dear, yet living, their patriotism, sacrifice, endurance, patience, faith and
hope can never die. Loved and lamented, but immortal! Paeans for the
living, dirges for the dead! Their work is done, not for an hour, a day, a
year, but for all timeg not for fame or ambition, but for the oppressed of all
lands, for civilization and Christianity, for the welfare of the human race
through time and eternity.
RED CROSS CHRISTMAS DRIVE
4 ttf 'til
In the Red Cross Christmas Roll Call drive the girls of the High School
took an active part, and in so doing helped to make the drive a great success.
They went to work with a will and made success their goal.
The drive was carried on one week from December 16 to 23. The girls
of the High School were made official collectors, wearing a red hat, on the front
of which was a red cross on a white circle, and an arm band on which "Xmas
Roll Call" was printed. '
Through the kindness and patriotism of the principal, the girls were
allowed to go out to canvass during study periods. In this way they accom-
plished a great deal of work during school hours. The girls were given half
of the city to canvass, and before the week was up had succeeded in canvass-
ing the entire district and had realized a good total.

A Letter from France
ISS CONSTANCE HALLOCK, teacher of French and history in our
, school, left last year to enter the Canteen Service of the Y. M. C. A.
She is now working in France and sends very interesting letters to the
teachers of the High School. The following is one of her letters:-
Dear Miss ........ :-
The mail service seems to be improving so much that I hope the enclosed
bit of native workmanship will reach you in time for Christmas. If it doesn't,
please consider it a valentine or a St. Patrick's Day present, or whatever may
happen to be the nearest holiday. I am at St. Nazaire, on the coast of Brittany,
right where the Loire flows into the sea. This is perhaps not the picturesque
heart of Brittany that you read about in story-books, but it is so old-world, just
the same, that I haven't yet got over my delight at some of the things I see on
the streets. It is a gray little stone town right on the edge of the water, with
little black-sailed fishing-boats tipping along beside big blue and white
camouflaged ocean-going vessels, sisters from the convent school, in gray
Quaker-like costumes, shepherding a double row of girls in blue dresses and
blue sailor hats to church ibut you notice that the blue orphans get a look now
and then to and from the swarming American soldiers and sailorsj. The school
boys and older men almost all wear the omnipresent blue caps with a hood,
wooden shoes go clattering along the streets, and all the women of thirty or
over wear white head-dresses of their particular locality. The woman who
delivered the coal briquettes for my fireplace tin a push cartj had something
like a stulied Tam-O'-Shanter on her head, covered with white lace, the little
chubby old country woman who peels potatoes all day long in the canteen
kitchen wears a cap with the stiii' strings looped up beside her ears, and another
woman who works in the kitchen, whom everyone calls Finisterre because she
comes from there, wears a peaked cap of white embroidery like a teacup bottom
side up on top of her head. 1 want to get several of the different kinds before
I go home, also some wooden shoes and some more lace. The lace is simply
wonderful, not only the Brittany net work such as I send you, but Cluny and
Venise, Valenciennes and Beaunais-I saw a little Alencon handkerchief today
that cost Eve hundred francs-a hundred dollars. Imagine a little city the
size of Pottsville having shops with such things as that! But, on the other
hand, truth compels me to state that ,though Pottsville may not have four or
tive shops at which you can procure priceless Alencon lace, still its streets are
not six inches deep in liquid mud all time, and it has at least heard of modern
plumbing and furnace-heated houses. If they would only combine the pictur-
esque with the sanitary, how happy we all should be!
Paris was wonderful, and in the eight days that I was there I managed to
squeeze in considerable poking about the city, between lectures and conferences
and office appointments which were necessary before the General Headuarters
would send us out. I never had so many dealings with the police before in my
life, nor left my photograph in so many rogues' galleries, either. There are
half a dozen cards and papers which they tell you to guard as your lite, and
carry them with you all the time, so that even the voluminous pockets of our
uniforms are bulging with otticial documents and certificates. Police head-
quarters are right up back of Notre Dame, so I took in the cathedral, the Hotel
de Ville, the Saint-Chapelle and the Conciergerie that one afternoon. I don't
see why the pictures can't show lots of other things about Notre Dame-the
lovely little grayish-green garden at the back, with the delicate stone-work of
the apse and its slender flying buttresses projecting out into it, and the fact that
the top of every projection is very light gray and the side dark, on acocunt of
the way the rain washes the dust down, I suppose, so that it isn't all one color
by a good deal. The carvings around the doors were all covered by sand-bags,
and the big colored windows all boarded up, to protect them from air raids, so
the interior was very dark, and I didn't have time to go up on the roof, but I'll
probably get back there sometime.
One day we went out to St. Germain-des-Pres, the church from which the
signal was rung for the massacre of St. Bartholomew. It is a grim, worn old
place, with a square plain tower capped with a pyramid-shaped short steeple,
one or two little windows deep in the stone at regular intervals up the tower, and
no windows for lighting visible from the street. It looks its part, all right! In
America we have no conception of what old, old stone is like, nor how it seems
to take on the character of things that have passed there. On the main streets
of Paris nobody pays any attention to Americans, for there are more of them
than there are of the French, I do believe, but in these out of the way parts of
the city every one is interested. The little old women in black who take the
part of sextons tfor men, old or young, are too valuable elsewhere, wanted to
tell me all about it, and as the other girl with me stopped to make a little sketch
outside, the policeman came up with more tales of the old abbey that used to
stand beside it, destroyed in the Revolution, and of the secret passage under the
fields tpre means held, though it's now in the midst of Parisj which used to run
to another monastery a mile away. They used the passage as a burial place
also, and when in modern times they took it over for part of the city sewage
system they found the skeletons of dozens of the monks who had been buried
We hadn't time to go out to Versailles, but, anyway, after twelfth century
abbeys and sixteenth century Huguenots and Notre Dame and Henry of
Navarre, Versailles seemed hopelessly modern and commonplace. I think we
two, my hotel room mate and I, saw more of Paris than all the rest of the
Y. M. C. A. people put together who were there for the same length of time, for
through my school combination of history and French I already knew what the
most interesting things about Paris were, and also by diligent study of a map
of the city I also knew where most of them were too. So every morning when
we started out for the office we'd map out a route that took in at least a peek
at something interesting, and then walk. The others didn't know Paris and
were afraid of getting lost, so they would go in taxis, but we had lots more fun
our way. We came through the Invalides grounds that way once, and I hereby
state that my rather lukewarm opinion of Napoleon went up at least forty-Eve
per cent. after that. l had crossed the Pont Alexander lll before, and as it
was too misty then to see the Invalides, l just put it down as a sort of blaring
piece of bragging, with those great golden-winged statues on top of tall pillars.
But when you stand in the middle of the great open space before the old build-
ing, with the dome of the Invalides rising into the mist behind it, and the golden
wings glittering above the river away oti' in front of it, you feel that it's alto-
gether suitable as a whole, though you may not like parts of it separately.
When you go along the streets in Paris and an American soldier salutes
you tfor they almost always do salute the "Y" and the Red Cross girls, though,
of course, there's no regulation that they musty, you feel quite chesty and set
up, but when you go to the lnvalides and a crippled soldier in a faded sky-blue
coat chirks up and salutes on seeing you, you have only one thought, and that
is that nobody alive at the present time is going to live long enough to see
America make up her arrears for not having entered the war long before she
did. And, as so often has happened, England has done more than her share of
tighting and working, and isn't getting the credit at all. There is no lack of
food in France that l can see, excepting of sugar and dairy products, whereas
everyone who came to France via England, or has been in England for any
reason, speaks of how much worse ofi' they are there than here. They have
such a way of putting their worst foot forward that the average Frenchman
doesn't half appreciate them, and as for the Americans, if there's one country
in the world they know less about than France, it's England! And as the
bloomin' Britisher can't dissociate himself from his tight little island, even after
having been trench companion to almost every nationality in creation for four
years, things don't seem to progress very rapidly.
The trip from Paris here I made, unfortunately, on a rainy, foggy day, so
although l passed through the "Chateau country," l couldn't see those that
stood back from the river any distance. l saw Amboise, however, and Samur,
and an old, old tower in Nantes called Anne of l3rittany's chateau. A French-
man in the train pointed them out to me as we passed, I hope l can come back
in better weather and when not on business bent. lt's all very well to be a
'tmilitaire" and have every one on the jump to do things for you because you're
an American and in uniform, but civilian life has its advantages in the way of
leisure. One thing-among many-that l am delighted with is to find that my
American-made French simply works beautifully. I talk to any one and every
one and we all Gnd ourselves perfectly well understood.
A merry Christmas, and remembrances to every one.

The armistice, a truce preparatory to a permanent peace, was signed at
Eve o'clock, Paris time, on the eleventh day of November, nineteen hundred
and eighteen. Six hours after German envoys had signed the terms im-
posed by the Allied and American governments, hostilities ceased and the World
War was over.
For four terrible years almost all of Europe was engaged in the most
horrible and destructive war ever waged in all the thousands of years of the
world's history, a war started, by a fanatical and ambitious despot in a vain
attempt to conquer the world and to force upon its people the propaganda of
German "Kultur," It is well known how his Prussian Guards made way into
Belgium, crushing as they went overy object of beauty which came across their
path. Ever since August fourth, nineteen hundred and fourteen, the quiet vil-
rages and farm lands of France have furnished the battle-ground for the op-
posing forces and the turmoil and destruction which accompanies these
However, at eleven o'clock, Paris time, or six o'clock, Washington time,
the last shot of the Great World War was fired. The troops of both armies
came from out the trenches and dug-outs, and gathered together rejoicing, the
allied army rejoicing in salvation and freedom, for which they had sacrificed so
much, and those who had been our enemy rejoicing in the cessation of hostili-
ties and the hope of returning home.
The lighting forces were not the only ones who celebrated this event.
The news reached Washington just after midnight. In turn, every city, town
and village was notified as soon as possible. Many places, expecting the glad
news, had arranged a system of bells by which they might arouse the inhab-
itants. As soon as the bells announced its arrival, the people, aroused from
their slumber, congregated in the streets and public places. All were eager to
show their pariotism. Throughout the country there were patriotic demon-
strations of all kinds, parades formed of all societies, of people in all walks of
life, regardless of creed or nationality, public sings and exhibitions of fireworks.
The whole day was a gala day for America. No one worked, all factories,
schools, omces and stores were closed. The one ambition in the minds of the
American people was to show their thankfulness for freedom and peace and to
give tribute to those who had won it.
Women's Place in War Since 1776
D. A. R. PRIZE ESSAY b Emily M. Derr
MERICAN WO1llCll of tl1e year 1919 are no braver, no n1ore patriotic
than women have ll6Cll in wars of all tin1es. "Earth's wome11 of every
generatio11 have faced suffering and deatl1 with a11 equanimity that no
soldier on a battlefield 11215 ever surpassed," says Oliver Schreiner, "and
wl1ere war l1as bee11 to preserve life or lalld or freedo111, rather tl1a11 for tl1e
2lCCLllllLll2lllOll of power, noble wome11 of all ages l1ave known l1ow to bear an
active part a11d eve11 suffer death."
Tl1e won1e11 ZtlllOllg tl1e early settlers of An1erica were of a truly heroic
breed. lt was spiritual as well as bodily courage tl1ey displayed, suffering tl1e
assaults of tl1e savage lllCllftllS, a11d, i11 tl1e abse11ce of their husbands, frequently
using tirearms to protect their cl1ildre11 and their llOlllCS. Shoulder to sl1oulder
witl1 tl1e llltlll tl1ese Wtlllltill worked, Zllld fron1 tl1e struggle was evolved a 11ew
type-the W0lll?lll of 1776, without wl1ose assistance tl1e Revolutionary War
could scarcely have succeeded.
There sta11ds out pron1i11e11tly 0116 of these won1e11, wl1o might l1ave lived
ill luxury, aloof fron1 scenes of sutfering, l1ad she so wished. This was Martha
Washington, the wife of the COlll1llZ1llClCl'-ill-Cllldf of tl1e Continental Arn1y,
who gathered tl1e wives of tl1e officers around l1er at Valley Forge, during the
severe wi11ter of 1777 to 1778, a11d witl1 tl1en1 undertook tl1e work of relieving
the needs of tl1e soldiers.
But the distress of tl1e army continued to be very great because of tl1e
need of Cltltlllllg, a11d i11 tl1e next year it was the generous women of Phila-
delphia who Cltllld to tl1e relief of tl1e soldiers.
Forming a11 association, tl1ey sold tl1eir tri11kets a11d jewelry to buy tl1e
needed n1ateria1s for garn1e11ts. Mrs. ESlll6l' Reed becan1e their leader. Though
frail i11 body, sl1e el1eerfully gave l1er llllld and e11ergies to the good cause. As
a result, l1er l1ealtl1 suffered fllld a few n1ontl1s after becoming a member sl1e

But her work continued under tl1e leadersl1ip of Mrs. Sarah Bache, tl1e
daughter of Benjamin Franklin. Tl1e extremes i11 this Association of Women
are shown by Pl1illis, a colored won1en, Wilt? gave seven sl1illi11gs, a11d tl1e
Marchioness de Lafayette, who co11tributed a hundred gui11eas in specie.
A ditlerent type of won1an, one wl1o showed her courage in quite 2ll'lOlhCl'
way, was Molly Pitcher. At that time, a few W01llCll, wl1o found it easier to
sta11d tl1e fearful strain of battle tl1a11 to re111ai11 at home in suspe11se, were
allowed to accompa11y tl1eir husbands to tl1e battlefields-not to fight, but to
wash, mend a11d cook for the IllCll.
Molly, tl1e wife of John Hayes, a gunner, was one of these. To all of us
is known the tale of l1er husband's fall a11d l1er brave sta11d bel1i11d l1is gun,
which she saved fro111 capture. Sl1e was given a sergeantls con1n1ission and
half pay for life, but a far greater reward is tl1e place sl1e llOldS in tl1e hearts
of all for who111 sl1e helped to secure freedom.
The story of Emily Geiger's bravery has been told in prose and poetry
many times. It takes us to the year 1781, when General Green was in dire
need of General Sumter's reinforcements, fifty miles away. When Emily heard
that the General needed a messenger for the dangerous journey, she immedi-
ately offered her services, knowing that, if discovered, she would meet the
death of a spy. General Green entrusted the letter to her, telling her its con-
tents, in case it should be lost.
On a fleet horse she dashed away, but was captured by Tory spies on the
second day, and imprisoned in a room of an old farm house. Left alone for a
moment, she tore up the letter and heroically swallowed the pieces. This was
done none too soon, for immediately afterward a woman entered, and Emily had
to submit to being searched.
Nothing suspicious was found, and the British allowed her to go on. Be-
fore sundown Emily reached General Sumter's camp an ddelivered the message.
lt is to her that we owe the outcome of that hard fought battle at Eutaw Springs,
when the British were defeated by General Green.
But as we look back to this period of colonial struggle, we find numberless
women whose names are associated with deeds of bravery and patriotism.
From this endless line of heroines who cannot be mentioned, two stand out
prominently if only for the distinctiveness of their brave deeds.
One of thetse is Lydia Darrah, who sacrihced her religious principles for
the cause of freedom. Lydia was a strict Quaker whosetfaith barred her from
taking sides, in the war. Because of this, the British commander, General
Howe, frequently used a large, rear room in her house for conferences with the
One evening General Howe told Lydia that they would be there until late,
but that he wished the family to retire early, and would call her when the con-
ference was over. Lydia obeyed, but could not sleep. Her intuition told her
that something of importance to Washington was being discussed, and try as
she might to be neutral, her sympathies were with the great General.
At last she slipped from her bed, crept to the door of the meeting room,
and, listening at the keyhole, heard the order to capture Washington's army at
Whitemarsh, on December 4th.
Some tim e later, as the officers were leaving, General Howe had to knock
repeatedly at her door, until she sleepily returned his good night.
The next morning she obtained permission to go to the mill at Franklin
for flour, and, hurrying to the American outposts, she told her secret. On
December 4th the American Army was drawn up in battle line when the British
The enemy returned to Philadelphia as quickly as possible, and when Lydia
was questioned she said that the members of her family were all in bed by eight
o'clock on the night of the conference.
"lt is strange," said General Howe, "I know that you were sound asleep,
for I had to knock several times to awaken you."
So the matter was dropped, and nobody knows to this day whether the
British ever learned the truth or not.
It is certain that at least one woman enlisted in the Continental Army and
fought as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. This woman was Deborah
Samson, who adopted mate attire and enlisted under the name of Robert
Shirtliffe. At White Plains she received bullet holes in her coat and cap.
Once she was shot in the thigh, but fear of discovery exceeded the pain of the
wound, and she refused to go to the hospital. Later she fell ill of brain fever,
and her sex was discovered by the doctor. She was pensioned for life for the
services rendered to her country.
During this period in the history of America, women indeed occupied a
place in war which has been unsurpassed, even in the twentieth century. We
cannot regret that the number of these women soldiers, who bravely served on
the field of battle, was small.
3113 ETH? nobler service of those countless women, who with white faces and
breaking hearts, sent to the front their husbands, fathers and sons, can never
be properly estimated nor sufficiently honored. Their place was on the lofty
field of sacrifice, and no heroism was greater than that which they displayed.
Looking ahead, to about the middle of the nineteenth century, we find the
colonies joined to form one growing nation, the United States of America. But
at this time, in the year 1861, a civil war bursts upon the nation with a fierce-
ness that threatens the union and strength of the states.
Again women resume their place in the struggle, and the world thrills at
the tales of their bravery and sacrifice. Two writers figured prominently during
Julia Ward Howe's beautiful "Battle Hymn of the Republic" was received
with enthusiasm everywhere, and it soon became the battle cry of the Union
Army. lt was sung by the men as they marched into action then even as it
was sung in the last few years by the millions cheering the heroes of to-day.
At the outbreak of the Civil War, Louisa Alcott left for the Union hospital
at Georgetown to nurse the wounded. Her heart was equal to the task, but
her strength was not. After six weeks of nursing she fell seriously ill with
typhoid-pneumonia. She never recovered her health entirely, but all her life
she labored for the happiness of others.
At this time a large number of women formed the United States Sanitary
Commission. lts objective was to provide bedding, clothing, food and com-
forts for the soldiers in camp and supplies for the wounded in the hospitals.
Mary Livermore entered heart and soul into this work of relief. There
was a great deal to do besides nursing and cheering the wounded. The
Sanitary Commission was permitted in time of battle to keep in the rear of the
army wagons, from which hot soup and coffee were served.
Besides helping in these duties, Mrs. Livermore used her remarkable gift
of public speaking to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the hospital
work. She was received everywhere with enthusiasm, and people were
thrilled by her tales of the suffering and needs of the soldiers.
Another woman, one who never took a holiday during the four years of
the war, is Dorothea Dix. She was appointed Superintendent of Women
Nurses, and her remarkable executive ability soon brought order and system out
of the confusion which existed. Everything she possessed-fortune, time,
strength-she gave to her country in its time of need. At the close of the war,
when Edwin M. Stanton, then Secretary of War, asked her how the nation could
best thank her for her services, she answered:
"I would like a flag."
Two beautiful flags were given to her, together with the gratitude of the
nation she had so nobly served.
At this time there was laboring in the hospital, in the camp, and on the
battlefields, a woman who was to render an unappreciable service to America.
This was Clara Barton, who persisted in aiding the wounded of both armies-
a practice which shocked many people and caused them to protest. But she
paid no attention to the protests, nor are any such heard to-dayg for Clara
Barton's way of helping the suffering, regardless of the uniform they wore, is
gow ftollowed over the civilized world. It is the very heart of the Red Cross
Q After her duties in the Civil War were performed, Clara Barton went to
Europe, and in Switzerland she first heard of the Red Cross Society. During
the Franco-Prussian War she devoted herself to this relief work.
ln 1873, on her return to America, she asked Congress to join in a treaty
with the European powers to establish the Red Cross Society here. It took a
long time to secure this legislation, and it was not until 1881 that the
American National Red Cross was organized. She was chosen as the first
president of the society.
During the Spanish-American War she brought the aid of the Red Cross
to Ciupa. The starving inhabitants were fed, the destitute, sheltered and
Clara Barton ranks as one of the greatest heroines the world has ever
known. Her name is known and loved throughout Europe and America for
unselfish devotion to a great cause. Her spirit lives to-day in the Red Cross,
kindled into a flame of love that warms the heart of the world.
From 1861 to the present day women have held a place in war, which
makes them as deserving of praise and honor as soldiers, whose place was on
the field of battle. Not only have they fought and suffered death with men,
but they have nobly borne the harder part-that of sacrifice.
And now we find that during the last and most horrible struggle for
freedom-the struggle known as the World War-history has repeated itself,
and women have again taken the place which they only could Hll. Some
women, such as belonged to Russia's "Battalion of Death," have bravely faced
the enemy, but the greater and more necessary service has come from those who
undertook to relieve suffering and carry on the interests of the soldiers who
had gone to fight.
Enough cannot be said in gratitude and admiration for our Army, Navy,
and Red Cross nurses. Their place was withlthe wounded-relieving suffer-
ing, and fighting death. Without them, freedom could never have been
Other women, such as the members of the National League for Woman's
Service, found the answer to "Women's Place in War" in taking the place of
men in industry and business. Many associations were in co-operation with
this league. They undertook drudgery such as had never been performed by
Every state in the Union was calling for workers, and the women imme-
diately responded. ln the agricultural districts they took up farming. Fac-
tories needed millions to carry on manufacturing. Women appeared in the
railroad industries and as drivers of trolley cars and elevators. Some became
radio operators. One might write many pages about the work these women
An unknown writer has said that in war there are two armies marching-
a man army and a woman army. To the woman army falls the sacrifice of
dear ones, the relief work for their comfort and care, and the carrying on of
The woman army has not fallen behind. Since 1776 it has filled its place,
and it will march on forever.

TIME AND ETERNITY
Dropping down the troubled river
To the distant, tranquil shoreg
Dropping Clown the misty river
To the spring-embosomed shore'
Where the sweet light shineth ever,
And the sun goes down no more.
Where the glory hrightly dwelleih,
Where the new song sweetly swelleth
And the discord never eomesg
Where Life's stream is ever laving,
And the palm is ever waving, '
That must be the Home of homes.

Chamber of Commerce Essay Contest
May 14, 1919
Interesting exercises marked the presentation of prizes to the winners of
the Chamber of Commerce essay contest on the subject, "Shop in Reading."
Isabel K. Strawbridge, the successful contestant in the Senior-Junior group, re-
ceived the handsome silver cup presented by the Merchants' Association, Emily
L. Bradshaw, the successful contestant of the Sophomore-Freshman group, re-
ceived a beautiful edition of Kipling's "Kim" from the same source.
Even before the announcement of winners the contest had borne fruit in
the school among the Juniors, who, urged by a strong civic pride, ordered their
very handsome class pins and rings from a Reading tirm.
Shop in Reading
Isabel K. Strawbridge
ln this city, during the past tive years, tl1ere has been a good deal of thrift
preaching. Every day the public is being instructed on these two world-wide
essentials, economy and thrift. lt is all very well--as far as it goes-it does
good, certainly, in stimulating individuals to be saving. But what we seem to
need most at the present time is preaching on "Home Shopping," which will
eventually lead to the promotion of thrift.
This is an automatic age. ln the United States especially the more nearly
automatic you can make anything, the better results seem to be. Saving
money certainly ought to be automatic. Every person feels that thrift is com-
mendable, but with most people it involves a weekly struggle to purchase in
tl1eir home town, thus saving both time and money.
It has to be made clear to the thousands of people in this city earning
salaries and wages in factories, shops and offices, that money is valuable and
moments are as precious as gold, and that both should be expended with the
greatest care. 1
To make thrift practical one must make it automatic so that there will be
none of this weekly struggling between desire and conscience. Some women's
greatest desire is to visit out-of-town stores to purchase for the needs of their
family, but they should be so instructed that conscience will conquer desire and
cry out "Shop at home, it is your best saving proposition and also your civic
Women-the majority of them-will not become good housekeepers until
they realize that they are a vital part to the economy of the world. To make a
success of housekeeping, a woman must undertake it with a distinct purpose,
the idea of running her home so systematically and judiciously that each mem-
ber will be happier and more comfortable. Does not the family shopping
stand out vividly as the most important feature in producing comfort and happi-
ness? When will the women of Reading comprehend the reasonableness of
home shopping and realize that it is their most economical and convenient form
of buying? When will they admit that it is their duty to their city to support
its manufacturing functions?
But the question naturally arises, "Why should we buy in Reading when
we can purchase better quality for less money elsewhere? tl But can we? Let
us look into the manufacturing interests of our city and decide for ourselves.

WHO'S WHO MINSTRELS
Nineteen minstels in a row,
O, what don't those minstrels know!
First came lanky Spider Fry,
All dressed up in a big red tie.
Next came spry Bones Edelman,
With his face and hands all tan.
Then that Mose Hunter, with patent shoes,
Danced a jig that drove away blues.
Kenney, Hintz, Hafer, Marberger and Haines
Did some singing that caused us pains.
Marse Johnson, alias Fichthorn,
Stood beside Himmelberger, tall and worn.
Johnson, with that monocle and muzzy of his,
For every one made a great big quiz.
Tub Reitz, singing of Homeland and Roses,
Caused every one to wipe their noses,
While Smith, Walker, Dietrick, Trout, Hippie
Made all the audience go 'round in a whirr.
And Tambo Koch, only three feet six,
Who was always getting his tricks mixed,
Shocked that audience unaware
When he did the Hula Hula, like a bear.
And last, but not least, Nigger Sterline,
With his lips painted as red as wine,
And a little hat kept on his head with a pin,
Got up and sang, "Can You Tame Wild Women?
And then the whole company, in a good vfoice,.,
Stood up and sang about the good Red Cross.
All knew that under our wigs were our curls,
'l'hat's how they knew that we were girls.
When asked how we did so fine, we reply,
Darling Miss Mattern coached us, that's why!

WHAT I WOULD DO WITH A MILLION DOLLARS
Esther Angstadt V ' Q
A million dollars! It is a huge sum. At last this miniature gold mine
belongs to me. I am now the possessor of many bags of glittering gold that
would be the envy of even Croesus, if he were here to see my gold pieces. To
some it might seem an innnite task to dispose of one million gleaming, glitter-
ing gold pieces. I've dreamed of that gold since that golden day in my remote
childhood when I held the Erst ruddy Indian-head in my hand, and l've spent
millions and millions of dollars in my golden dreams.
Part of that vast sum I shall give to some Orphans' Home. What girl
has not suffered many a heartache when she has read those sorrowful tales of
orphans, with their two little pig-tails, turned-up, freckled noses and plain
gingham dresses. Five hundred thousand dollars those little orphans shall get
or I'm a veritable miser.
Many years ago, when I studied geography from a large, dirty, battered
hook, which seemed as heavy to me as the earth to Atlas, I learned that in the
state of New York were the Catskill Mountains. I had a pitiful impression of
that place as being a sort of region full of howling, me-owing cats. But now
I know what a wonderful spot that country is. There I shall buy many acres
of mountain-land, and in a cozy log-cabin I'll live as true Americans did a
century or more ago. I'll canoe on the long, meandering lakes like the Indians,
and my food will be obtained as the pioneers obtained theirs.
Of course, with a few remaining thousand dollars on hand I'd frequently
return to civilization, and in my snorting, puffing racer, which would also be
purchased with this fortune, I'd travel this dear old land of our from one corner
to another. I'd ascend the lofty peaks of the Rockies and experiment with
life on a ranch, including, of course, some attempts at mastering a broncho.
But not even that would devour the last gold piece of my wealth. I would
still have enough to travel to the ends of the world and visit especially the
famous battle-fields of war-torn France and see the "fields of Flanders" where
"red poppies grow." Oh! what delights could not one experience with only
one million gold pieces.

THE PRINCESS WHO LEARNED TO BE HAPPY
Once upon a time there lived in a beautiful southern kingdom a king and
queen, who were greatly beloved by their people, for they ruled wisely and well.
When a daughter was born to them there was great rejoicing over the whole
land, and there was a universal period of feasting and merry-making.
The little baby princess, young as she was, was remarkably good to look
at, and the whole court, nay, every one who behld her, was ready to become
her slave! And so, as she grew older, the Princess Rosalie, as she was called,
was petted and spoiled to such a degree by every one that she soon became
quite a little tyrant. But a lovely tyrant she was with her golden curls and
shining blue eyes and enchanting smile! But alas, that smile was no where to
be found if anything perchance did not suit the Princess. Therefore, her
slightest whim or fancy was always granted by her devoted parents, just that
she might be pleased. Naturally, as she grew older and was becoming quite a
young lady, growing more beautiful day by day, her wishes became larger and
larger and her dissatisfaction greater and greater, so that scarcely ever did she
smile. Such a state of attairs greatly troubled and grieved the good king and
queen, Rosalie's parents, for they gave her everything within their power to
give, and still the Princess remained unhappy.
At length Rosalie's twelfth birthday arrived, and there was to be a great
celebration at the palace. Princes and princesses from kingdoms far and near
were to be present at the celebration. Naturally, each princess wanted to be
the most beautiful and popular one there, and strove with all her might and
main to surpass every other princess by her loveliness. But the like of the
dresses and frills and tinery that were to be worn by Rosalie on this illustrious
occasion you never saw! There were pink gowns and blue gowns and yellow
gowns, gowns of white and gows embroidered in gold and trimmed with rare
laces, and of every variety of fashion that all the dressmakers in the kingdom
could devise. Finally even Rosalie's extensive demands were fulfilled and she
herself rested content, after trying on all her tinery and surveying herself at
every imaginable angle before the glass, that she would surely be the most
beautiful of all the princesses. Z1
Then her guests began to arrive, and such an amount of luggage as they
brought with them! At last the queen began to be worried as to whether
there would be room enough in the palace for all of it! But, alas, it was time
for the ball to begin, and there was one princess who had not yet arrived. Her
name was Helena, and she came from a far northern kingdom. The other
princes and princesses were rapidly assembling in the ball room, awaiting the
entrance of Rosalie, for that was to be a great event of the evening, as none of
them had yet seen her and were burning with curiosity as to how she would
look and what she would say. Indeed, there were many arguments on the
subject going on at the very moment, when, all of a sudden, the heavy tapes-
tries at the doorway were thrown open, and there stood before them the most
beautiful being they had ever laid eyes on.
"lt is the Princess Rosalie!" they all exclaimed, in awed voices. "But,"
added one prince, "l never expected to see such a beauty!"
What they saw was a regal little figure, clad in the purest of white gowns,
of a flimsy, fairy-like material. She wore no ornaments, but over her shoulders
a white scarf was draped, which was really not a scarf at all, but a silvery cob-
web. And she carried a wand, such as fairies are said to carry. Her short
black curls danced merrily about her white neck, and her roguish brown eyes
skipped joyously from face to face as she advanced across the room, without
saying a word.
All the princes, and even the princesses, in spite of a a least tinge of
jealousy, flocked about this fairy-like newcomer, thinking her to be the Princess
Rosalie. Just that moment the tapestries were again drawn aside, and there
stood Rosalie herself. She looked beautiful indeed, until her smile vanished
and her habitual frown of discontent took its place on her face. For when
she appeared no one heard or saw her at all, as there was such a din and com-
motion in the vicinity of Princess Helena. Then Rosalie approached her guests,
and when they looked around at her, doubtless thinking her to be the late-
comer, she exclaimed in a haughty little voice: "I am Princess Rosalie. l hope
you are all having a pleasant time. You seem to be enjoying yourselves, at
any rate!" and with that she threw the blackest of looks at Princess Helena and
walked stiffly away.
But that young lady merely gave her head a little toss, and in a moment
was busy arranging her partners for the dances, as the music had already started
off at a lively clip. After the first dance, however, Rosalie was nowhere to be
found! The alarm was spread, and a great search at once began throughout
the palace gardens, and even over the whole kingdom. But, alas! There
was no Rosalie anywhere! The ball went on to its finish, but the next morning
all of Rosalie's guests departed sadly for their homes. And still no signs of
Let us see what really did happen to her. At the end of the first dance
she decided to escape from the room, as she was angry and hated everybody
so passionately, because they didn't make a fuss over her as they did over
Princess Helena that she could bear it no longer. She managed to steal secretly
to her apartments, and there she burst into a storm of angry tears. All of a
sudden she heard a little voice at her side, and, looking up through her tears,
she saw there the tiniest fairy imaginable.
The fairy spoke: "Ah, Rosalie, Rosalie!" she said. "l have been watch-
ing you for a long time, and I am greatly grieved that you have proved yourself

unworthy of such a home, such parents, and such beauty. Therefore l have
decided that this night l shall carry you away to a far country, where you will
learn to be patient, kind and good, and where the people shall love you for your
Then Rosalie felt herself whizzed away through the air, and finally she
awoke on a level plain near a town, for she saw its houses in the distance. She
looked down at herself as she arose, and with horrer found that her feet were
bare, and her clothing, of the coarsest material, was in rags, and her head with-
out covering. lt was growing dusk, Rosalie noticed, so she decided that she
would have to proceed to the village and seek shelter somewhere. She was
footsore and tired when she reached the town, and indeed felt very much like
crying, for she realized that she was very far from home and friendless.
All of a sudden a tear trickled down her nose and she put up her hand to
rub it away, when lo! what was the matter with her nose! How could any one
like such a hideous creature as she was? How strangely crooked and rough it
seemed! She feverishly passed her hands over the rest of her face and found
it rough with pimples and moles, her cheeks hollow and her chin peaked. She
gave at cry of despair.
Suddenly there was a small, familiar voice at her side, which said:
"Rosalie, do not despair, for you shall be given shelter, and from this time on
every truly kind deed you do will remove one of the hideous defects of your
face. But you must do the deeds from the kindness of your heart, and not to
become beautiful again." Then the fairy disappeared. Rosalie then, taking
courage, walked up to one of the humble huts and knocked at the door. ' lt
was opened by a little shriveled-up old woman, who looked as cross as a bear,
but, upon looking at her, Rosalie saw that there was a tiny twinkle in her eyes.
"Oh, good dame!" Rosalie cried, "can't you take me into your house?
l am poor, alone and friendless, and l am willing to do anything by which to
earn food and shelter."
"Come in, my dear," replied the old woman. "l have been looking for
such a girl as you, for 1 too am alone."
Rosalie entered and the old woman closed the door. "What a homely
place it is!" thought Rosalie, "but still it is a shelter, and I shall make my home
here." The old woman put her to work at once to get the supper and tidy
the room, for there was only one. Rosalie tried to do it cheerfully, hard a task
as it was to her, but she did her best, and said nothing. When the simple meal
was finished and the dishes were put away, Rosalie had to make herself a bed,
for the woman possessed only one cot, on which she herself slept.
And so, day after day, Rosalie worked continually at the orders of the old
woman, who was always wanting an errand run, or something sewed, or
scrubbed, or made. Rosalie learned rapidly and did her work so well that the
good woman praised her skill. But as yet only two of the worst moles had
vanished from Rosalie's ugly face!
After she had been there for some time, Rosalie began to become well ac-
quainted with the townspeople, who were all poor in money but rich in children
Seeing their needs, she volunteered to help them, by tending sick babies, by
doing Dame Wade's washing, when she was ill with the rheumatism, by sewing
for Dame Wendall, who was nearly blind, by nursing the sick and cheering the
discouraged. And one by one her distigurements disappeared, until the vil-
lagers began to note the change, and remarked how really pretty their Rosalie

So Rosalie continued on her errands of love, and was beloved in turn by
every one in the whole village before six months had passed, and soon her fame
spread through the entire countryside. One day as she was walking homeward,
wondering sadly if she would ever be permitted to return home, for, in spite of
her love for the villagers, she was becoming a wee bit homesick for her mother
and father. Then she heard the familiar voice of the fairy at her side, and it
said to her, "This evening shall you go home to your parents, who have
mourned you as dead, for you have just completed the last task which has re-
stored your former beauty. Nay, more, for you know the joy of doing good
unto others, and that has added a new and unsurpassed beauty to your
Rosalie implored of the fairy that she might be permitted to say farewell
to the whole village before she went, promising to come and visit soon again.
The fairy granted her this request, and when the god-byes had been said Rosalie
was whisked through the air and set down in her own lovely bed-room in her
fatherls palace, wearing a glorious gown of snow white.
Rosalie went joyfully to seek her parents and take them by surprise. At
last she found them in the throne-room, sitting sadly alone. She ran up to
them and kissed and hugged them both rapturously before either had a chance
to see who she was. When they recognized her they went nearly wild with
joy and ordered a great celebration over the whole realm, for their lost daughter
had returned. And, so far as l know, they are celebrating Rosalie's return to
this very day.

The distant :nountains that I dream of in my dreams-
O, where are they?
The silent, sfretching marsh that to me hideous seems-
How far away?
The towering' crags-the chasms deep--the spring-touched wood
Where do they lie?
To all of these I'd go, awakened, if I could,
Such longing in me stirred that on each night,
And o'er and o'er, '
I dream of each again. And each time long to sight
Some distant shore
Where wait these visions of my dreams, unnamed, unknown.
For often have I really gone awake somewhere
That natural seems,
And said, "I have been here before-and also there-"
But all in dreams,
I only recognize what I have seen sometime before
When fast asleep.
I x '.f' onder, then, where are the other spots that I, of yore,
In slumber deep
Have seen and still see oft. From sights like these I rise-
Yes, o'er and o'erg
Beside the blue far-reaching water sheet there lies
The yellow shore,
And dotted dark float green isles on the waves.
Light, timid, trembling winds, all sweet with scents of spring,
That, stirring soft,
Cares: me where I stand and perfumes fling,
' Come touching oft,
Where aIl's a tender, fluffy green and shadows blend..
Upon a mound
Where quivering' grasses wave, and tall, lithe poplars bend,
With sea around
And ocean-smelling breezes blowing into land,
Far out to sea
I look, and on the lofty pinnacle I stand.

C Corfimzed from page 69, foreparl of baokl
The close proximity of Reading to the vast coal fields of the state of
Pennsylvania, the superior local resources, and its location near the great marts
of trade and commerce of the seaboard states induced enterprising business men
here to establish manufacturing works. Manufactures have been the main
cause of rapid growth and substantial prosperity to this city, and have given
Reading a name and a fame which extends throughout our entire country and
into every other country of the civilized world.
Do its citizens realize that Reading, with a population of 110,000, stands
third in the whole state of Pennsylvania in manufactures? Do they know that
in their city there are over 500 manufacturing plants, and that the annual pro-
ductions from these factories total over 5458,ooo,ooo? Can they comprehend
that their city contains the largest children's shoe factory in the world, and one
of the largest spectacle factories in America, and is America's second largest
center both of hosiery and of builders' hardware?
The innumerable manufacturing plants and the great variety of articles
produced here, give to our stores an advantage which is superior to that of any
other city in the United States. When it is possible for merchants to buy their
wares from mills in their own home town, it is only natural that they are able
to sell at cheaper rates than if purchasing from factories far off. Thus the
people of Reading cannot possibly purchase articles of the same quality at
better bargains than our stores offer, from the out-of-town stores.
Then, too, our factories sell to out-of-town stores, and quite often, while
shopping in aneighboring city, one may buy articles which have been manu-
factured in the mills at home. For instance, there was a certain woman in
Reading who prided herself on purchasing for the wants and needs of her little
daughter in New York. Reading had only inferior goods-so she thought-
and, besides, it was quite stylish to boast that her child's clothing was bought
from a store in that enormous metropolis. Her husband was holding one of
the highest positions in Curtis 8a Jones' shoe factory, but she would never think
of putting a shoe on her child's foot that was manufactured in this dull old
town. But, like many others of her kind, she had a glorious awakening.
For a short time she found it vastly necessary to visit New York every
time her daughter's shoe supply needed re-enforcement. But upon one occa-
sion, after she had been on a very tiresome shopping tour in that famous city,
her husband, knowing the class and quality of the articles manufactured at the
factory, at once recognized one of his wife's purchases to be a pair of shoes
which had been sent with hundreds of others from his mill a few days previous.
When he told his wife, her anger knew no bounds. She had plenty of
cause for anger and disgust, for had she not tried to satisfy her desire to buy
in New York, and in the end purchased an article manufactured in her own
home town which could have been bought here for less money minus her fare
to and from that city? And besides all this, she had an unusually fatiguing trip.
The art of shopping should be considered as seriously by the women of
Reading as the business propositions are considered by the men. When the
clever woman shops, she makes her head save her heels. Instead of fluttering
to another city where she is not acquainted, and rushing in one store and out
another, tiring herself unnecessarily, she stays at home and shops with great
ease and comfort in the places which she is so accustomed to visiting that it is
very easy to find what she wishes immediately.
Then, too, after purchasing the articles desired, the clever woman has a
great feeling of satisfaction, and prides herself on the fact that she has been
loyal to her city. 'Tis one's duty to one's city to shop at home, and any person,
be it man or woman, boy or girl, who is gaining a livelihood in Reading and who
is not concerned with or has not interest enough to uphold its commercial wel-
fare, is not worthy of the privileges of citizenship.
lf your city furnishes many ways by which you yourself and thousands of
others may earn an honest wage, if it offers to all its citizens equal rights and
protection, if it gives the right of citizenship to all who desire it, is it not worthy
of your patronage? Concentrate your thoughts on that new question, and,
while thinking, remember that every dollar you spend in Reading leads your
city on to progress.

A MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE
One mid-summer afternoon three girls were gathered on the porch of a
large Colonial homestead. One was a, tall, slim maiden, with dark hair and
eyes. This was Bernice Sumners, just seventeen. The second girl was about
the same age, with large blue eyes and golden hair. Betty Minton was this fair
maiden's name. And the third was a dumpy little girl, with beautiful auburn
hair and brown eyes. She looked just what she was, sweet sixteen. This was
Doris Burke, the daughter of Judge Burke, of Humting, the town where the
three girls lived.
The three girls were busily talking about the weather. Doris and Betty
were sitting on the swing and Bernice was sitting on a chair nearby, vigorously
fanning herself. "Goodness, but it is hot," said the latter. "There is hardly
a breath of air stirring, except that which I make with the fan."
"Yes, and I do believe it is going to be still warmer," replied Betty.
"Let us go picnicking to-morrow," said Doris, "just the three of us. We
can go down in my canoe to Princess Island. We'll take our lunch along and
some good books."
"That will be fine," agreed Betty and Bernice.
"Well, then, be over at my house at 7 tomorrow. And don't forget to
bring your bathing suits. The swimming down there is fine, you know?
The three girls were so interested discussing the plans for the morrow that
no one discovered a small, dark head half hidden behind a pillar of the porch.
"I'll fix them," whispered Tommy Sumners, mischievously, to himself.
"They won't go in a hurry if I can help it."
Entirely unaware of this small frustrator of plans, the three girls prepared
to part. Soon Doris and Betty sauntered down the street, and Bernice went
into the house. In the hall she met her mother. t'Oh, mother, Doris, Betty
and I would like to go picnicking to-morrow at Princess Island."
"Do you wish to go early, Bernice? " said her mother.
"About seven o'clock in the morning," replied Bernice.
"Very well, l'll get your lunch ready in the morning," said Mrs. Sumners.
It is now about four o'clock of the next morning. The sun was just be-
ginning to peep over the distant mountains, but the greater part of Bernice's
room lay in deep shadows. She lay sleeping in her bed in the corner of the
room. Soon the door opened and a little person, with bright, mischievous
eyes, crept stealthily into the room and walked over to the clothes closet, every
now and then glancing over towards the bed. When he reached the closet, he
fumbled around until he brought out what looked very much like a girl's bathing
suit. Bending down, he picked up one low-heeled oxford and one low-heeled
shoe. Then, after another stealthy glance towards the unsuspecting sleeper,
he hurried silently away. ,
Now the sun was shining brightly into the room, and some of the rays
finally alighted on the sleeper's face. She jumped out of bed and looked out
through the window. The sky was a deep blue and the leaves on a neighboring
tree were stirring faintly. Hurriedly glancing at the clock on the dresser, she
saw it was three minutes past six.
"Bernice, it is time to get up," said a voice outside the door.
"Coming, mother," replied she. '
But when she went to put on her shoes, only one shoe could be found.
After hunting around, she decided to put on her oxfords. She, therefore, put
one on, but when she went for the other, she could not find it. By this time
Bernice had grown impatient.
. "Well, that is strange," she said to herself. ""Both my shoes and my

oxford gone. I haven't anything but my high-heeled shoes, and I surely will
not wear those."
Running downstairs with one oxford and one bed-room slipper, she asked
her mother where the other two shoes were. Mrs. Sumners, of course, knew
nothing about them, and so together they went up and began a search for the
missing articles. But it proved unsuccessful.
"Now I have nothing to wear but those old shoes which I was about to dis-
card," said Bernice, "and they do look a sight."
"They will do to go down to the Island," replied her mother, and went
downstairs to prepare lunch for her daughter. Then she went over to get the
bread for the sandwiches, and to her dismay there was not a crumb of bread
to be seen. -
"Bernice," called she, "come down a minute."
Bernice entered the room and her mother said: "All the bread is gone, and
there were three loaves here last night. It seems the bread as well as your
shoes has disapepared. You can't go without sandwiches, and there is no baker
here until after seven. It is now twenty-five minutes of seven."
"Well, I will do without sandwiches," said Bernice.
"Here is a box of crackers," cried Mrs. Sumners, "and it is full."
"That will be finef' replied Bernice. "Now l'll run upstairs and get my
But soon a voice floated down the stairs: "Mother, I can't Gnd my bathing
suit, and it was here yesterday, for I saw it. This surely is mysterious. By
the way, where is Tom? I wonder if he knows anything about it."
"Tommy is sleeping, and he surely didn't take the things," replied
"Well, I haven't got my suit, and I don't know what to do."
"Run down to Betty's. Perhaps you can borrow one of her's."
"All right, mother," and out she ran.
"This certainly is peculiar," said Mrs. Sumners to herself. "lf Tom were
awake, I would think he did have something to do with this mystery, but he is
Pretty soon Bernice came running in, followed by Doris and Betty.
"I got a suit from Betty," cried Bernice, snatching her lunch from the
table. "Good-bye, mother."
"Good-bye, and take good care of yourselves, girls," said the latter, and
began preparing breakfast for the rest of the family.
At the breakfast table Mrs. Sumners told her husband about the strange
disappearance of bread and shoes. Tommy sat taking it all in. Several times
his mother glanced at him curiously, but he kept on eating with his eyes on his
At six o'clock in the evening of that same day Bernice returned.
"Hello, folks," cried she, bursting into the dining room where the family
were eating their evening meal. "My goodness, but I am hungry." She ran
upstairs, washed, combed and dressed and then came down again. While eat-
ing she told how they spent the day. In the morning they were in swimming.
After lunch they sat around, read and talked and then went in swimming again,
and then it was time to come home. She concluded with, "You should have
been on the lake. The sky was such a deep blue and the sun was likea big ball
of tire. This was reflected in the the water, and it certainly was a beautiful
sight." After several minutes of silence, she said, "By the way, mother, have
you come across the bread and my shoes and bathing suit?"
At that Tommy suddenly choked and hurriedly left the table with a mut-
tered "Excuse me."
"I'll bet a cooky Tom knows more than you think he does," said Mr.
Sumners, and started to laugh. 46

"I'll tell you something funny," said his wife. "This morning, about ten
o'clock, I went over to see Mrs. Montgomery, who is ill, and when I came back,
there on the pantry lay my three loaves of bread which had disappeared this
morning. l've been waiting to see if Bernice's clothes would turn up in the
same manner, but they haven't as yet."
At eight o'clock that evening a number of boys and girls were gathered on
the veranda of Bernice's home. A victrola was playing and some of the boys
and girls were dancing.
Doris and Bernice were standing together when Bernice whispered to
Doris, "I lost my handkerchief. Come up to my room while I get another
So together they went into the house and up to Bernice's room. As
they were leaving the room, they heard footsteps outside the door, and then
the door was slowly pushed open by an unseen hand.
"Quick, get through that door,'t whispered Bernice to Doris. Looking
through a crack in the door, the girls saw Tom come marching in with a shoe
in one hand, an oxford in the other, and something which looked ssupiciously
like a bathing suit slung over one arm. As he bent over to put it on the bed,
Bernice jumped into the room with a yell,closely followed by Doris. Tommy
made a dash for the door, but Bernice caught his blouse and marched him back
into the room. Then she said: "Oh, so now I know where my things disap-
peared, and now, Master Sumners, will you please explain how you got them? "
He looked from Bernice to Doris and said nothing.
"Well, I am waiting," declared Bernice.
Tommy burst out laughing. "I'll tell you," he cried, "if you promise not
to tell mother."
"I'll promise nothing," replied Bernice.
"Well, then, I wonlt tell you."
"Indeed you will," said Bernice, "I won't let you go until you do tell me."
"All right," said Tom, "I'll tell you. I took your bathing suit and shoes
early this morning while you were asleep, and then I went-and then I went
down and took the bread, and then-" and with that last "and then" he jerked
loose from Bernice's grasp and sped down the stairs.
"He certainly is a mischievous kid," said Bernice in an exasperated
Doris laughed and said, "Well, he gets away with it." At that Bernice
When they got downstairs they found Mrs. Sumners handing out lemonade
and cake to the young people. As the girls approached, they all cried out in
"Where have you been, girls? "
"We just ran into the house for a minute," said Doris, and then all began
talking and dancing again, Doris and Bernice joining in with the rest. As soon
as Bernice saw Betty she explained the mystery of the morning to her.
After the young people had departed, Bernice found her mother and
father sitting in a secluded corner of the porch. She told them how she caught
Tommy putting back the things in her room, and how she made him explain
how he got them.
She said, "He took the bread, too."
"We as much as knew that from his action at the table this evening," said
"He ought to be punished," said Mrs. Sumners.
"Oh, that was only a joke," said her husband. "You know boys will be
boys, and they wouldn't be boys if they didn't play tricks some time."
"Yes, you always take Tom's part," said Bernice.

"LET US TAKE A WALK"
l.ast summer my cousin Geraldine and I went a-visiting in the country at
the large farm-house near the little village of M---. For the first few days
enjoyment reigned supreme. Of course we milked the cows, fed the chickens,
rode on top ot the hay-wagon, in fact, did everything a city-bred girl loves
But after a week or two had passed our interest began to lag, and we
were beginning to become just the least bit bored, when one morning we heard
the startling news that Farmer Griscom, the richest man in that section of the
country had been robbed. He had received over s5,ooo that day in payment
of a debt, and all this money, in addition to some valuable silverware, had
- The whole country-side was in a state of upheaval. Groups of people
gathered by the road-side and spoke in tones of fear and wonder at this strange
news. Others mounted their horses and followed Farmer Griscom to the
nearest town to report the robbery to the police, while others went so far as to
make their houses more secure against that dreaded nuisance, the thief.
For several days excitement never ceased. Detectives came from the
city, but not a trace of the thieves could be found. Farmer Griscom was almost
in a state of nervous prostration, and offered a reward of s5oo to any one who
could capture the thieves or get the money. Of course, every one was ready
to help. People ran hither and thither, looking in every imaginable hole and
corner for suspicious looking people.
"Oh, they make me tired with their old robbery," I said one afternoon,
'tlet us take a walk."
"But I'm afraid it is going to rain," added Geraldine, not being very
anxious to get her new serge skirt spotted with rain and mud. '
"Oh, no, it isn't, either," I returned, Ufor the sun again 'shineth in all his
"Very well," she said, and away we went. Surely the weather was per-
fect, and we walked and walked and walked, but suddenly the sun became
hidden behind a cloud, and before long large drops of rain began to fall.
She hurried me along with an HI told you sol' expression on her face. 'tl
wonder where we are," I finally had courage to ask.
"I don't know, but I certainly wish I hadn't come," she snapped.
Finally it began to rain very fast, and we were obliged to stop for shelter
inui:r some large trees. ' It also began to thunder and lightning, and we .were
almost frightened to death, when I suddenly espied a little shack down in a

"Oh, do let us g-go down th-there," I stammered, my knees shaking and
my teeth chattering.
"All right," she finally consented, and away we ran, drenched to the skin,
and mud from head to foot.
This shack proved to be a two-story house, very weather-beaten and
dilapidated. Some of the shutters were off, and the window-panes were broken
and very dirty.
We timidly knocked at the door, but as no one answered, we tried the door
and found that it was unlocked. Jerry pushed the door open and we stepped
inside. The room was exceedingly dark and dingy, and the only furniture it
contained was a table, two soap-boxes and an oil-stove.
We sat down dejectedly on the soap-boxes, and waited for the storm to
pass. The shutters banged, the boards creaked, the thunder roared, and there
we sat all alone in this God-forsaken spot.
ln about half an hour the storm abated, and we were thinking of leaving,
when we heard foot-steps approaching. Glancing out of the window, we found
them to come from two city "dudes" dressed in large check suits, brilliant neck-
ties, and carrying walking sticks. Sure enough, they weie making straight for
We rushed as fast as we could into the next room, and crouched in the
darkest corner just as they entered the door. They looked cautiously about,
tirst out of the window and then around the room, but, seeing nothing, they sat
down at the table.
"Get her out, Bill," said the one, "and let's look her over."
The other man went to the other side of the room and removed a board.
He pulled out a fairly large box and a money bag and brought them over to the
table. They emptied the contents on the table and commenced counting the
"Five thousand two hundred and thirty dollars," muttered the former.
"Old man Griscom is certainly a rich old bird."
"Yes, and look at the spiffy silverware," added the other. "Put it back,
Bill, and we'll come for it to-night."
We sat as if in a trance, our hearts in our mouths. Yes, there was no
doubt about it, these were the thieves. Waiting a few minutes after they left,
we crept silently back into the room and secured the stolen goods.
Then we tiptoed to the door and looked out. The men had disappeared,
and we hurried down the road. A farm-wagon was approaching, driven by an
old lady, who told us the way back to the farm and oifered to give us a lift.
We arrived home shortly after dark, so excited and so elated we could
scarcely talk. We delivered the goods to Farmer Griscom ourselves, and that
good old man was so happy he danced a jig right then and there.
He sent several men to the shack to watch for the return of the crooks.
Jerry and I were put immediately to bed, but bright and early the next
morning we received five crisp one hundred dollar bills as a reward for our
"Now aren't you glad you took that walk, Jerry? " I asked, merrily.
'Well, I should say so, let's take another," she replied with a grin.

1: PLUMBING AND HEATING :I
THE WHITE GLOVE
Anna B. Kenney
lt was after midnight. The telephone bell jangled loudly on the desk in
the spacious oftice of Dr. Jacques. The doctor himself was sitting in bath-
robe and slippers in his great arm-chair, with his head leaning back. His eyes
were closed, but he was not asleep. He raised the receiver to his ear.
"Hello? " .
t'This is the doctor speaking." A short silence at the doctor's end.
"You say at the 'Jacqueline?' Ump--"'
"Very well, tell her l'll be there shortly."
The receiver was again on its hook. The doctor hurriedly changed bath-
robe for coat and slippers for shoes. Picking up his small medicine case, he
switched oti' the lights and passed through his outer door into the cold night.
Snow had again begun to fall, and already a tine white shimmering
gleamed on the tops of the huge piles of snow along the path. The doctor
turned toward the garage, but halted half way. Driving would be bad, and,
if he had to stay any time, his engine would most likely freeze-no, the house
was but a few squares, he would walk.
With collar turned up and hat pulled well down over his face, he plunged
forward and breasted the stiff wind and fast falling flakes. He covered the
distance in a comparatively short time, and a few minutes later the broad,
handsome steps of a very good-looking house, leading to a still broader and
still handsomer entrance. The house was not a new one, but its age seemed to
make it appear grander and more dignified than a new house could have looked.
Being quite familiar with the house, the doctor ran up the steps and
pressed the small nickel bell. While waiting for on answer to his ring, his
thoughts strayed to the last time he had been there. His patient had been the
very last tenant the house had for some years. All these intervening years the
house had stood empty and desolate. Standing well in from the street, with
the rear portion enclosed with a high brick wall, it was easily forgotten and
neglected. Even the boys of the neighborhood kept away from its walls, for
among themselves they termed it "spooky" and "haunted," The doctor
musingly told himself he did not know it had an occupant, but-yes-he re-
called that very same day some one--he could not remember who-had passed
the remark that the Jacqueline was now tenanted by a very beautiful woman,
who lived alone, attended only by an extremely tall, well-built Hindoo, a few
pets such as no other woman was known to keep, and two or three servant
women in the kitchen.
He wondered-but his musings were suddenly interrupted by a tall Hindoo,
in his native dress--the very man the doctor must have heard about-who
opened the door and ushered the doctor into the lower hall of the house. He
relieved the doctor of his outer coats and, without a word, motioned for him to
follow up the curved broad staircase. At the top of the stairs he turned
abruptly to the right and entered a room separated from the hall only by heavy
drapings of thick curtains. These he held aside for the doctor to pass through
and, upon dropping them, shut out the only bit of bright light which for the
minute had flooded the room. To the doctorls unaccustomed eyes the room
seemed to be in almost comparative darkness, with but a single candle standing
in the four most remote corners of the room. His eyes soon accustomed them-
selves to the dimness, and he discerned, lying in the surroundings of a princess,
a woman's beautiful figure, with dark hair falling gracefully over her shoulders,
her body half-lying, half-sitting on the richest of oriental couches. This evi-
dently was the person who had brought him out in such a night. The Hindoo

ofiered him a chair conveniently close to his patient and silently withdrew, after
arranging his mistress' cushions. During these moments of silence, the doctor
readily observed the room he was in. lt apparently was in the front of the
house, but the shutters and windows were closed and the shades tightly drawn.
The ceiling was high and the room unusually large, but, it seemed to the doctor,
very stuffy, and there was a strange odor of burning incense, evidently the
oriental odor to blend with the rest of the room.
Though the lady was a stranger, the doctor wasted no time, but began
conversation in a courteous, business-like manner.
"Whatever the matter is, you cannot expect to improve in such a room,
The lady for the first time spoke.
'tl called you in to attend me, not to comment on my apartment."
"But, my dear madam, that is part of my profession. l cannot hope to
help you if you remain in such an air."
The lady was silent with but a nod or a shake of the head occasionally,
while the doctor resumed his speaking and was very much to the point. The
visit was soon ended, and the doctor again plodded through the snow-heightened
The next day proved a hard one for the doctor, and he had little time to
think of his very unusual night patient. lt was not till again very late that
night as he sat in his office, in his own great chair, with a cigarette between his
lips, that he had time to recall his mystic patient. He wondered whether she
had obeyed him, and whether she would call him again if need be, when,
searching for his match-box, his fingers felt something soft. Slowly he pulled
forth his kid gloves-no, not his-his were in their accustomed pocket in his
overcoat-but a lady's white kid glove. He turned it over and over and
slowly determined that it must belong to the lady of the oriental room, when
the phone bell rang again and the call was from the same patient.
The visit of the preceding night was repeated and covered practically the
same length of time. The doctor had intended returning the glove to its owner,
politely explaining that he knew not how it had come to be in his pocket, but
for some reason, which the doctor would not account for to himself, he had
neglected doing so. On his homeward walk he had decided to call the next
morning, thinking the day would, anyway, be the best time to return such an
article to a lady.
The morning dawned gloriously, and Dr. Jacques, before starting on his
morning calls, stopped first at the Jacqueline. The house was closed as it
had been for so many years, and to all appearances seemed untenanted. The
doctor wonderingly lifted the latch and went in. Inside all was still and the
dust of years covered the floors and stairs. The doctor passed up the stairs
to the room in which his patient had been, but all was silent, and only the doc-
torfs own footprints disturbed the dust of years. Dazedly the doctor walked
down the stairs and out to the street again, holding the white glove in his left
hand. lt alone was all that remained.

lt's the name of a college boy.
We took a bit of rosy red
Down from the sky so far,
And mixed it with a silver thread,
Stole from a shining star.
A twinkling star to a sunbeam said,
"O dear, l've lost my way,
. My sisters all have gone to bed,
And here alone I stay.
t'Won't you a mite, dear SLll1l7CZlll1, turn
Your bright and gleaming ray-
A wee bit-for my eyes they burn,
And may go out, they say."
The sunbeam then, a kindly miss,
ln motherly tones so dear:
"Just step behind this cloud ,
Until the night is here."
