“Well, thank goodness we have started at last,” said June; “Goodness knows, we have had excitement enough for one night.” “Amen!” — from John. “What!” she exclaimed. “1 forgot to put on the right cuff-links after all!” The little brook glides gently on, Laughing and murmuring as it goes, As swift and determined as a young faun Dancing gaily along on its wee silvery toes. Like a jewel it sparkles a nd glows, When covered with shining sun rays; When over its white sandy bottom it flows, ’ Tis the prettiest treasurer of summer days. “Oh, June!” Virginia Wood, ' 29.

“Open the door and let yourself in,” she rather sharply answers. “I can’t” he replies. “For heaven’s sakes what is the matter now?” this to herself, and as she opens the door, nearly faints in astonishment. There was John — yes, it undoubtedly was John — but such a change. “His hat is gone, his hands and feet muddy and clothes just about like them, and, horrors, he has on hand-cuffs! Who is that strange man with him? He is as big as a giant.” All of this passed through June’s mind in a matter of a few seconds of silence, while she stood spell- bound. “Why, what’s the matter, John?” she asks. “This man doesn’t believe these cuff-links are mine.” “Why the idea!” “Well, I know it sounds funny to you and him, both, but I will explain that later.” “Tell these ‘gentlemen’ who I am and that these cuff-links are mine.” “Gentlemen, these cuff-links are my husband’s,” as they were handed to her. “I gave them to him on our first anniversary two months ago. He broke them and I sent them to the jeweler’s. Not getting them this afternoon, I made him go for them tonight, as we are going out.” After telling them their names and age and ancestors, and so forth, and after calling the jeweler and having him affirm their state- ments, the policemen finally left with the parting remark, “Better be more careful next time, young man.” “Now, will you please explain all of this?” — this in the course of a hurried dressing of John. “Sure,” he grinned. “I ran out of here pellmell, because you were in such a hurry. The man that just left looked at me ‘kinda funny’ but I ran on into the jeweler’s; he gave it to me, the cuff-links, I mean- — a nd 1 didn’t hand over any money — merely winked and said you were waiting and that I would pay him later for fixing them. That crazy policeman saw all of this and as I was hurrying out I bumped right into him.” “You would!” broke in June. “And, as I was saying — ahem! — we both fell — I on my hands and knees. I dropped the cuff-links, he grabbed them and looked at them. I, of course, got mad and started to take them when sud- denly I had hand-cuffs on and was being marched up to the police station. He called me “Blake, the Society Youngster.” It seems I look like a particularly well known society thief. So, I told him to drop in here on the way to the police station. The old fool wouldn’t go back to the jeweler’s — said he was going there alone and catch them at it, I hope he enjoys it!” he concluded.

0 irginia s S. art in the uilJing the 0 J ahon Prize Essay FTER making a study of history and of that outstand- ing and all important part Virginia played in opening up and establishing this nation of ours, as one, if not the greatest, of the world powers today, we cannot help but feel a deeper love and respect for our beloved State, Virginia — the State which has proudly given her sons, her daughters, and her resources to every noble and righteous cause, the State which rightly deserves those immortal and endearing terms “Mother State” and “The Old Diminion.” In order that we may better understand the subject let us make a brief survey of the different fields through which Virginia and Virginians have exerted their influence and treat of each separately. The first of these which we would naturally think of would probably be the period of colonization. Here we find Virginia leading- all the other colonies; in fact it was on Virginia soil that the first per- manent English colony, Jamestown, was founded in 1607. The success of that colony may be said to be due largely to that dynamic and courageous character, Captain John Smith. Smith, facing great difficulties and with keen foresight and strict discipline, enforced law and order in the small colony. We find that one of the greatest dangers that the earlier colonists faced was the attacks of the Indians. At one time when Smith was away the Indians raided the colony and might have killed all the settlers had it not been for the protection of the ships on the bay. Finally, by means of kindness and diplomacy, Smith befriended the Indians and we find that they became so loyal to him and to the colonists that they brought them food when the colonists were near starvation. No sooner was the Indian question settled than we find other troubles with which Smith had to cope, the greatest of these being an insurrection among the colonists themselves, led by President Wingfield, who, being jealous of Smith, wanted all the power for himself. All of these troubles and man},- others we find Smith settling in a satisfactory way, being at all times a brave and valiant soldier and at the same time a perfect gentleman. 127
