MY MO-.ST EMBARVASSING
Mary Costa, TA.
"Mary, have you darned your
stocking yet," said mother just as I
started to read the evening papers.
"Oh, I forgot -to," I answered, "bu:
I'll darn i-t before I go to school to-
"You h-ad better darn it now,"
said mama, "It seems as if you
always forget." '
"'But I'm so interested right now,'I
l answered, "1 swont lake my shoes
off n front of anyone," I continued,
Mother left the room and after
finishing the paper, I commenced to
read a story book, A gen-tleman came
down to visit us afterwards-. I do

just quick enough to grab my foot
and although I tugged and pushed,
he took my shoe clear off. Oh, how
he laughed when he saw that hole
in my stocking! 'He said, "You're a
nice one, you are. You fdon't even
know how to darn your stockings."
"I do so," I answered. "Just be-
cause it W-asnit darn-ed th-is time, you
comeand take my shoe off." More
said, "I thought you werenlt going to
take your shoes off in front

expense. This was my most em-

She was white: entirely white, ex-

inrquisitive nose, 'black soft silky
ears and one black foot. Her tail

her eyes keenly searching for any

Wallace Hill, B8.
Jfacfk was a good natured dog, but
he disliked tiramps. One morning
a tramp knocked at our door for
something to eat. I could hardly
refuse, as he was ragged and look-
ed as if he were hungry.
When Jack saw him he growled,
This should have been a warning
to the tr-a-inp, but he deliberately
turned on the faucet, when much to
his sunprise, Ja-ck sailed out and
fastened his teeth on the tramp's
The tramp kicked the dog in the
ribs. This made me angry, so I
told the dog to "go to ft,"
The tramp made a hasty retreat
to the railroad station, but when
he got there he found the dog
waiting for him. Jack had gone
the shortest way. Again the teeth
came down upon the man's leg.
With a yell, he wrenched his foot
loose and exceeded the speed limit.
I would venture to say that that
hobo told the rest of the g-ang to
stay away from our house, because
none of them ever visited our house

Beryl llauiel SA.
Sir Launi'-al, a haughty young
l'nig'ht who was proud of his lineage
and his large estates vowed to do
what was believed to be the noblest
thing a knight could do. to go in
search of the Holy Grail. For this
holy search he had his "golden
spurs" and "richest ma'l" brought
to him and prepared to travel far
over I-and and sea,
He slept in the courtyard among
the rushes. By doing so he hoped
he might be granted a vision which
would direct him in finding the
Grail, He fell aseep and in the
hoped for vision saw himself r'de out
through castle gate in gilded mail
and brilliant trappings.
But there in the shadowy gate-
way, he saw a crouching, moaning
leper begging for alms. A feeling of
loathing came over Sir Launfal and
he tcsses him a piece of gold in
. Grieved and hurt, the leper did
not touch the gold. He needed lt
badly enough but would not take it
without sympathy from the giver,
Years passed by and finally Sir
Launfal came back to his castle, a
feble, gray-hair-ed, old man. As he
tried to take refuge in the court-
yard, he was driven away. Another
Earl rules in his stead. He was now
a beggar, miserable and po-or.
Ag-ain S-'r Launfal heard the voice
of the leper asking alms. This time
he saw not the loathsome outside
but a fellow being more miserable
He shares with the leper his crust
of brown bread and gives him water
to drink out olf a wooden bowl. A
marvelous thing happened, Instead
of the crouching leper a glorified
Image stood there and told him the
Grail for which he had been looking:
all his life, without avail, was T.116l'6.
The Holy Slipper is kept, indeed,
when we lovingly share what we
have with another's need.
Sir Launfal awoke and called to
his retainers that the Grail was
found in his castle. The vfsion had
worked its magic,
The castle was opened to the F1011
and poor allke, His vision has
taught hizn brotherly-love and

One day my father and I went
hunting down the bay. My father
said, "I hope we kill a couple of
ducks." "iSu1'e, I do too," I replied
with the thought olf how a good duck
supper would taste.
It was our lucky fortune to come
upon two ducks lying in the water
about firteen feet away.
My father said, "Let's each kill
one." My gun was a 22 calibre and
we had bought those 22 scatter bul-
lets. My father shot at the ducks
and I guessed he hit one of them
'because it didn'-t seem possible that
he could miss at such close range.
Then I took a shot but dlon't know
whether I hit them or not.
We fired two more shots apiece.
Father said, "Go out and pick them
Just as I got out where the ducks
Were, they awoke.
They had 'been asleep and the shots
had not even disturbed them.
"'Ilhat's what we got for not buying
good lbxlletsf' my father said.
But I couldn't help wondering if all
the fault lay with the ammunition,

THE PLAN THAT BACK-FIREU.
It was nearing the Fourth of July
and Tommy, Billy, and I went to
Ohinatowrn to' get some fireworks.
When we came home we took our
1:-ackages to Tommy's house to leave
'till the Fourth. Of course, we had
to exam-'ne our supplies, so we
opened each package and in one we
found some fuses.
Then Tommy lit a punk just to
See if it was any good, Immediately
it began to sputter. Siame of the
sparks flew into the pile of fire-
works, and off went all our
To say the least, it 'was the most
unusual display of fireworks I have
ever witnessed. Fire crackers were
bursting to right and left, pinwh-els
spun h'ther and thither across the
floor, skyrockets played tag under
and on the couch, and some made a
bee-line for the curtains. Then, oh
dear, the bombs caught fire and
burst with la dull boom, sparklers
were showering stars, while the Ro-
man canfdles splendidly sent up their
balls of red, green and gold light,
I rushed to the garden and w'th-
out ceremony dragged the hose into
the house, while -at the doors and
windows, the amazed neighbors stood
looking in. Fortunately no serious
harm was done to the house and
furniture. We had enaugh Hre-
works for one week so when Fourth
of July actually came we spent a
quiet day. Gigli
AN ENTERTAINING INVENTION
Patricia Stanley A-8.
To my mind a very great and bene-
ficial invent'on is the diving suit.
Wihe-n we -think of all the things
we can learn and gain -by it, we can
appreciate its value. Through it mil-
lions -of do'lars of treasure lost
by early Splanish and English adven-
turers have been located. We can
locate and recover valuable cargoes
of sunken ships, The fines-t pearls
and coral and also best sponges can
be secured and important repairs on
cables can be done with much less
trouble and expense than otherwise.
Strangest and most wonderful sea
cre.a.ures and sea plants can be
brought to lght and given over to
science. lnclced, 'there are sfo many
wonderful things that can 'be done
by the diving suit that we can not
name them all. -Some day we may
know the ocean as we.l as the land,
Wlho knows? Anyway, we are ap-
parently coming to it 'by the aid of
the diving suit and are grateful for
A BOY'S DAY
Sigmund Kurtz, SA,
When a boy reaches the age of
thirteen or fourteen his lheafd is in
a wh rl wiith wireless, school, base-
ball, Boy S-couts, parties, hikes and
a hundred things more.
As soon as he arises in the morn-
ing he hears the strident call of the
woodpile, Then there are a long
string of errands which allows him
just fifteen minutes to get to school
where he spends five hours at the
rockpile of knowledge.
After school comes more errands
and jobs from which he is at Last re-
l'eved by the c-all of supper, When
the dishes are cleared away then
comes the best time of the boy's day.
He draws up a nice easy chair by the
warm cheerful fire, and down from
the shelf comes a boy's book, On,
Joy! he may travel with Jimmy May
to Florida, or dig buried treasures
with Tom lSawyer, or tramlps the
snow covered regions with Connie
Morgan or go up' the Amazon with
"High Benton" or split h"s sides
