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. 12 " '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!" ia, 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 and treasure. 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. 14 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 forgotten. 15 "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 to her. 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 song. "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 16 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 fb ,nl fi M ft i tt 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. 17 VICTORY COLUMNS Our Great General GENERAL DAVID M.

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 23 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 there. 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 24 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. Atfectionately, CONSTANCE HALLOCK. "We suggest a monument Io the ffl-537.65 who put lhe doughnuts in the doughboysf'-Exchange. 25 CLASS SONG Naomi A.

Stout 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 hostilities. 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. 28 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.

As a result, l1er l1ealtl1 suffered fllld a few n1ontl1s after becoming a member sl1e died, a true 111artyr to tl1e cause of fI'CCCl0lll. 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. 29 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 staff-ofiicers. 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 approached. 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. 30 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 this period. 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 ocie y. -31 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 care or. 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 gained. 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 women. 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 are doing. 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 their interests. The woman army has not fallen behind. Since 1776 it has filled its place, and it will march on forever. 32 Miss Edna Hain, R. N.

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 duty." 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.

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.

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. 8 ESCHEDOR MAKER OF W W 7? tiff fCii,,.A5 SY -U l21 XL O n 1 il :X 91 ta H i , e W o W M IQ!

I T iegel ina THE PRINCESS WHO LEARNED TO BE HAPPY Martha Dick 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 Rosalie! 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 22 For the Good of the HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS and may it prepare them for the best there is in life The READIZVG EAGLE 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 own sake." 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 was becoming. 24 You will neecl a talking machine this spring.

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 countenance." 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. W W W W im! inf lm! inf A DREAM Emily M. Derr Nearer and nearer it came, the faint buzzing sound of the revolving wheels growing in intensity until it became the distinct hum of perfectly running machinery. Grandma had read a great deal about the wonderful invention of the air- plane, and now her long desired dream had come true and she was at last gazing on the graceful, wing-like object. She awoke with a start and a cry of pain to Gnd her nose swelling alarm- ingly, and a large humble-bee sailing away in search of a new landing. 27 MY DREAMS Millicent Barton Rex 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, To gratify 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. 28 GILES RIGHT I :-: THAT'S OUR AIM :-: ' ' I M0llLER'S DRUG STORE "We Treat You Right" Q19 R You Secure the Best Workman- e Ship in I Awings, Flags, 123 S. 5th St. Decorations and Upholstering " ' I' :lv H -- AT -- YSvag1t111tl1.liln1uera W.

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 -ll 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. 0 giizlmglkill gfkminaxg READING'S JUNIOR COLLEGE READING, PENNA.

A MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE Stella Leiservitz 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.

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 bathing togs." 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 Bernice's mother. "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 sound asleep." 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 plate. 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 Q ...V N , eg. ., ,rv '11,-, . 52.

"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 one." 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 manner. Doris laughed and said, "Well, he gets away with it." At that Bernice laughed, too. 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 chorus: "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 her father. "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. 48 This Year As Never Before American Young Men will .

"LET US TAKE A WALK" Margaret Richards 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 to do. 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 disappeared. - 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 gloryti !! "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 hollow. 51 FARR5 Footwear for comfort and stylish appearance.

REA DING, PA. "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 the shack. 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 money. "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 deed. "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. . 63 BOTH PH ON ES l AUMAN l Zliunvral Eirertnr g and l Emhalntrr i ee--asa l The only Funeral Parlors inthe city adapted for Private and Public Services.

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? " . HYeS,77 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 55 NQ-10,072 xl ff kgw' f. A y it f 451 .U x "S ,LL I ' 97353 24 .

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, stuff-" 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 blizzard homeward. 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. 57 Ulldlellewslemule ln lhe Heart ol the Elly.
