“ ' es, I know. You thought you had diangcd the address. Ikit I’m up to you, young lady, ’ou see, 1 phoned Miss Perry l)efore she left home this noon and tokl her the eorreet a ldress.” “So that was why she looked so (jueerly at me. I wondered.’’ “Now, Jo, you thought she was going to make a complaint against your eonduet, didn’t you?’’ her mother asked. “ ' -yes’m,’’ Jo admitted. “In fact’’ her mother went on, “she did make a remark about how mischie ' ous you are in school but that wasn’t the main thing. She really came to arrange the details of the play — ’’ “ ' Fhc play!’’ shouted Jo; “Oh, mother what did she say about the play?’’ “She said that you were chosen for the chief part in the play and that — ’’ Hut she could get no further, for Jo was jumjiing up and down with joy. “d ' he play. Pm to be in the play,’’ she cried. “Oh Pm so glad. If I was any gladder I’d bust.’’ “( ' aim down, dear,’’ her mother reproached her, “you realh’ must be more cpiiet.’’ “ ' ell, I will, mother; I promise you this is my last prank.’’ But, she added, “I just knew that gypsies didn’t have long yellow curls.’’ Dorothy Wallner, ' j2. •4 117 Jh-

On tlie way back to school Jo was seized with a brilliant idea. Why not change the address? Without e ’en stopi)ing to consider she caught up with Miss Perry who was walking a few yards ahead, and greeted her. “Mother said to tell ou,’’ she said, “that she’d be at home this afternoon and to cpme right out to the house. We li e at 45 Elm Street,’’ she added and could hardly resist chuckling as she thought of the surprise Miss Perry was going to get. She wondered why Miss Perry looked at her so (pieerh’, but as the bell was ringing for the pupils to form in line just then, she did not hnd out. 4 ' hat afternoon Jo loitered at her friend Ruth’s house until Mrs. Morris, her mother, droi)ped a polite hint al)out “neighbors’ children being out so late.’’ As Jo slowly valked home she wondered what her mother had thought when Mis. Perry had failed to appear. She had not thought of that side of the case before, and she realized that it was a pretty mean trick to play. After all her mother must hnd out some day. Why hadn’t she thought of that before? As she came within view of her home she droi)ped in astonish- ment. Who was that coming out of her own front gate? Surely it couldn’t be — but it was! It was Miss Perry! As she closed the gate, Jo could hear her say to her mother, who stood in the shadow of the porch, “I have had such a kwely time, Mrs. Miller, but really I should- n’t ha e stayed so la te.’’ “I’m so sorry you ha e to leave. Miss Perr ' , but do come again. I will tell Jo what you said when she comes home. Goodbye.’’ Jo stopped in dismay. Surely Miss Perry would see her. But to her relief the teacher turned the opposite way and walked up the street. Jo raced up to her mother. “Wh}’, Joan,’’ her mother exclaimed, “whatever is the matter? You’re all out of breath” “Mother, what did Miss Perry want? How did she get here?” Jo asked, unconsciously admitting her guilt, “ thought I changed — I mean — I-er — ” 4 116 Ih-

VERY PERSON at some time of his life has attempted to write his diary. Not many, howev er, have ever been finished. A note-book is first used and you write with great enthusiasm the history of the day you begin. As a rule this first entry recei es at least five pages, but by the end of the week you are writing one page and finally, at the end of the next week, one-half page. The two following weeks you probably skip every other day. You think that by this time, since nothing very exciting has happen- ed, that the coming generation will not be interested if you have gone down town to buy some buttons, eggs, and get a haircut and a shoe- shine. The note-book diary was begun in December; now it is April. The summer has passed, yet only a few weeks during that time have you written in your diary. It is now lying in the attic with a fuzzy cover of dust adorning it, but hidden so that no prying hands will find and read the secret history of your past. Christmas again, and though you have thought you never wanted to see a diary again, there is a beautiful book with “A Thought for Each Day” inscribed upon the cover, addressed to you. Then mak- ing a solemn vow that you will fill the diary and publish it, you start writing. You think that there is not enough room in the allotted space to W ' rite the story of your career, and find you are in a terrible predica- ment because you have not thought of one special thought the whole day. You therefore, write in the space for December the twenty- fifth: “Today I received my diary.” Though faithfully w riting just one thought a day for two months, you still are sadly thinking that a line a day is not enough to accjuaint people with the inside matters of your life, but you submit and still write. February has arrived and you still write spasmodically, but finally throw ' your pen down saying that you will write again when something really exciting happens — though you secretly hope nothing will happen as you are completely sick of the w ' hole affair. This sum- mer the diary shows the same fate as the note book diary. -4 118 Jh-
