"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- morrow." A "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 not lfnow what prompted me to un- tle my shoelface, but I d'd, I-Ie was 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 embarrassment. hole in mother said, "I thought you werenlt going to take your shoes off in front one." "'VVe"l, I didn't," I answered, "he did.' 'Then they all laughed at my expense. This was my most em- barrassing experience, As if be ng' caught with a my stocking was not enough, of any- .imp-.i. TINY. Helen Garpenter, A-8. She was white: entirely white, ex- cept for her large brown eyes, pink, inrquisitive nose, 'black soft silky ears and one black foot. Her tail always wagging, her ears pricked up, her eyes keenly searching for any cat asleep or awake, at home or the impression -f astray. Tiny gave being "a live wire," "Every dog h-as certainly had hers the grass chewing content or d'igg'ng his day," and she as she romped in it to her fheart's after gophers and mice llmeneath the grass roots. She enjoyed snapping at the goats' heels and frightening the stupid creatures by 'barking when they went out to feed, But her chief. deight was--howl- ing at night at any hour of the n'ght, whenever 'her fancy inclned so ,She was, indeed, the pet and yet tlhe pest of the neighlborhood! .....1ei.... "JACK," 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 ankle. 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

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 morn. . 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 than himself, 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 kindness. i..iT-Q-.--.1 POOR SHOT? Leonard Thelste, 7-A. 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 up. 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, vv

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 tre-asures, 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 its help, --.-.Q....1... 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 laughing -over Penrod and Sam,
