Montana, Montana Montana Normal College Montana Normal College Montana, MontanaHistorical
The act of Congress under which the state of Montana was admitted to the Union set aside one hundred thousand acres of the public domain for the establishment and support of a state normal school. In pursuance of the same plan the Legislative Assembly of Montana has passed acts establishing the State Normal School, locating it at Dillon, providing for the erection of buildings, and appropriating money to defray its expenses. The first building was completed and the school opened in 1897.
By an act of the eighth Legislative Assembly which became a law February 25, 1903, the name was changed to the Montana State Normal College.
By an act of the thirteenth Legislative Assembly, which was approved March 14, 1913, the State University at Missoula, the College of Agriculture and Mechanical Artsat Bozeman, the Schoolof Mines at Butte,and the State Normal College at Dillon, constitute the University of Montana. All the institutions are governed by the State Board of Education and the local affairs of each are administered by a local executive board. This law went into effect July 1, 1913.
In October, 1915, the State Board of Education in accordance with the provisions of the law, appointed a chancellor as the chief executive officer of the University of Montana and the duties of the office were taken up February 1, 1916.

In the beginning the State created the school and put over it certain rulers whose word was law.
Now it came to pass in the first year of the reign of Monroe, that some Preps came into Normal, flourishing their eighth grade diplomas, for there had been set judges in the land throughout all the grade schools of Montana; and it had been commanded by the judges, “Take heed what ye do, that ye judge not for merit’s sake, but for the examination questions answered.” So the Preps came to Normal; young and tender-hearted maidens with a fierce desire for a profession consuming them by daylight and by darkness.
And the fear of the law was on all these Preps, for they had heard that Monroe fought against the enemies of peace and ruled his kingdom with a high hand. So the Preps waxed great in knowledge during their first year.
Now in the next year twenty-five of these Preps again entered into the Normal, there to complete the work it was written that all Preps should do. And it came to pass that these Preps elected unto themselves a counselor and this counselor chanced to l e one Walter Scott. And so they were successfully led through the year.
Now by the third year, several of this tribe had vanished into a far country and their names became only a memory in the city of Dillon. Hut a few other maidens journeyed from other places and liecame members of this tril»e; and those that were assembled were seventeen in number and were called Freshmen. Now this small tribe waxed strong in mind and in body and Scott was coaching them daily in athletics and they could not find what they might do in basket ball until it came to pass on one of those days that the Juniors sought to defeat them and the Freshmen were sorely humiliated. It seemed that these tribes were nigh unto war. Hut there were two other tribes in the contest who were also not victorious, so the Freshmen were consoled and peace reigned again.
Now it came to pass in the fourth year, that a great multitude of people travelled from far and near and joined this tribe, and the name of the tribe became Juniors. Now among these peoples were two of mankind and seventy of the other kind. They were a sinless people and had great faith in their High School diplomas.
And now when these tribesmen had for the first time assembled together, one who had long followed this band arose and spoke forth words of praise for Scott and immediately the multitude, one bv one, hailed Scott as their leader into the land of Wisdom And so the Juniors l egan their journey. Hut they had not travelled far when they were led into a wilderness called Physics and there was great fear of rebellion against the rule of Scott. Other difficulties were also met with. As they passed through the realm of English, the Empress cried, “So shall
I'agt 44it l e with all the students who set their hearts against study, that they shall sojourn in the land of English,” and straightway many of them studied. As they entered a kingdom ruled by one Mosher, they had great fear that they would simmhI-ilv lx killed by some short method. As they journeyed into the fourteenth land, a land ruled by Clark, great doubt filled their minds and they knew not what they were. There was great depression among these people but they did not desert their leader; and, alas, he lead them through a great victory against an organized body of Senior ball-players and there swelled forth great rejoicing. Now the Juniors chose to make friendly relations with their conquered neighbors; so they set before them a great feast and immediately the Seniors brought forth a great peace pipe.
But it came to pass in the ninth month that the Juniors came to a great Head See and billows of examination rose before them. But. upon entering the See, a great dryness spread out before them, such a dryness as they had never seen. So it came to pass that the Juniors crossed into the land of Seniordom.
Now some of those who had crossed into the new land did not settle there, but departed from the Normal country entirely and went to dwell elsewhere. But people of other lands sought refuge in Seniordom and now the Seniors, for such were they now entitled, numbered from the age of eighteen upward and their number was about sixty females and four males. Concerning the size of the Seniors the sons were in height short of an average, while the daughters ranged from four to seven feet. And the number of the shoes of the young men was seven and one tenth and that of the maidens was four and one half. The weight of the young men was about a quarter of a ton and that of the maidens five tons. Now the most of these Seniors were Americans, but there were other tribes, to wit: Germans, Swedes, many Irish, an Assyrian, a Finlander, Missourians, and other war-like tribes.
Now the chief work of this year was the attack on a distant land called Training School. Now this proved a great work and thousands of plans were made and constant daily attacks were waged. At last the inhabitants of the besieged city dispersed and shut behind them their doors; so the campaign lasted no longer.
And at last after all these years, the Seniors pass out into the Promised Land. The rest of the acts of these sons and daughters are written in the archives of the proud hall of learning, the

l' W 47Class Prophecy
Nineveh, Asia, March 9, 1927.
My clear Laura:
I have tried my best to find out the fortune of those dear people of the class of ’17. I received most of this information from Jimmie Xcate’s detective agency in Scotland Yard, London. Of course you remember Jinunie. He surely had made Sherlock Holmes look like a Missouri town constable, when it comes to detective work.
He informs me that: Agnes Nevin is taking a course in home cooking and nursing in a little brown bungalow out on Texas Avenue, Butte, Montana.
Mabel Seidensticker has joined the Order of the Purple (Toss for the protection of Juniors during basket ball tournament at the College.
Ag Lowney, I know you will rejoice at this news, is joke editor for the New York Sun. She has kept the world laughing the last few years.
Kats O’Keefe, “Our girl with the voice,” is leading lady in the newest musical comedy, produced by Mae Ix retz, entitled "The Bird of Paradise Lost."
Frances Kennedy is now the wife of the author of all those strange boxes and long distance calls she used to receive during her sojourn at the Dorm.
Arabella McRae still teaches a primary class in the little, red school-house at Rocker. Frances Clague, now the noted suffrage leader, is running for mayoress of the thriving little town of Opportunity.
Strange to relate, the three Helena girls are joint owners of a fudge factory in Helena.
Kathryn Mullins and her friend and roommate Kathryn Naughten have both embarked on the sea of matrimony.
Edith II all id ay is the successor of Ruth Covington, while Henry Iloffland, our proficient yell leader, is now professor of mathematics in the University of Kalispell; and it is whispered that he and Yi Manuel are about to take up a new problem together.
Mabel Taylor and Jean Emerson have become prominent factors in the work of Christianizing the Fiji Islands. It is rumored that Jean and the Reverend Provow have united their efforts and leave next week for Kibosh to take up the good work together. Kate Scully and DeForest Graves are prominent ear and eye specialists, rivaling the great doctor Donovan in their home town.
Pearl Mathews and Mary Deeny are proprietors of a beauty parlor in Paris. “Pete” is drawing her way to fame in the same fair city and they often spend their evenings together as of vore.
Abbie Riley and Ann Rogers are walking the tight ro| e in Margaret Tow’s circus.
Our dear old “Cele” is a contented nun in a far away convent in Sweden. Treaty Rawlins, Agnes Bird, and May me Dowd are teaching in a college for refined young ladies in the Bitter Root Valley.
Naomi Lenox and Alpha Thompson are critic teachers in the training school of Columbia University.
Loretta MeGechan and Sadie Murphy are making themselves noted as daring auto-truck tourists. Cassie McGrady and Ann Mchan are “tangoing” through life on the Opfillum Vaudeville circuit, with Clair Reardon as director of their nifty act.
I am very glad, indeed, dear Laura, to know that you arc prospering in the real estate business in Iceland. I. too, am meeting with unexpected success. Today Rosa Drummond and I were digging in the ruins of the temple and, lo, I came upon the very blackboard on which the wicked king Nebuchadnezzar saw the hand writing on the wall. If such, indeed, has been my luck, I intend to send the trophy of my work to tin Natural Museum in Dillon and will rest with my great work completed.
As ever yours,
P.S.—I forgot to say that Murray is director of the Coyote Chorus at the Hippodrome, New York.

(To the luno of Old Mack Joe)
Wo re a band of pigs and we live on Normal Hill;
Our leader’s Clark and we try to do his will;
We’re organized as a nature lovers’ clan,
To root for birds and trees and flowers is our plan.
P. I. G. Ugh, ugh, ugh, How we love to hear that call, We'll always come to that old call, yes, one and all.
We love the flowers for to us they bring good cheer;
We plant some seed on the campus every year;
They are enjoyed by the students who live there;
To us their life is worth a thousand times their care.
Our hearts are thrilled when a birdie we behold;
His music charms more than any harp of gold;
W ee feathered friends, we're so glad to have you near, We'll do what e’er we can to have you every year.
Wealthy are we when we’re out among the trees;
Strong, grand, and true, who are better friends than these; They are our guides to an upward path in life,
And one who does not know the trees does not know lift .
When we no more in the Normal sty may stay,
We’ll not forget all the dear days passed away;

Page SiLiterary Societies
Several times before this year, literary societies have been started in this school, but they seem to have lacked the necessary persistence to put them on a firm footing, .lust who in particular deserves the most credit for the standing of the present societies it would be hard to say. To me it was a case of team work. We all know that team work will win when everything else has failed. Of course Dr. Carver and several other faculty members made some valuable suggestions, but it took a good representation from the student body to get things actually started. 1 won’t mention any names here; so that there will be no possibility of any one’s feeling slighted.
The matter of two societies was finally decided upon. One chose the name Othonian and the other Zetalethean. The Othonians chose as their officers Miss Florence Keniston, president; Miss Bessie Stone, vice-president; Miss Mayme Dowd, secretary; Mr. A. II. Xeate, sargent at arms. The Zetaletheans chose Mr.
H. II. HofTland, president ; Miss Jean Emerson, vice president ; Miss Loretto Kelly, secretary; and Agnes Lowney sargeant at arms. The officers were to be changed at the beginning of each quarter, but owing to the fact that the first quarter was nearly gone when the first election took place, the above mentioned officers, with the exception of Miss Keniston who was forced to leave school on account of illness, held over for the second quarter.
After the officers had been chosen and the two sides divided up, it took some time to get things going. Something seemed ti stand in the way every time we tried to arrange for a program. At last a date was arranged for and fine progress was made in preparing the entertainment. The eventful night finally did arrive and then lo and behold the juniors went and sprung the stunt. Our goose was cooked for that night, and some declared they were through with the whole business. But after readjusting our dates we succeeded in staging the first program and it certainly was a “hum-dinger”. The people that stayed in the dorm that night heard all about it from those that attended, and after that it was no great trouble to get a program prepared or an audience to attend.
As to the benefits derived therefrom, I know that every memtar will tell you that it has done him much good. It has brought out talent in this old institution that one would never have suspected present. Furthermore, it has developed in us an ability to express ourselves, and lastly it has promoted a fine social spirit. We, the seniors, are glad to have helped start such a fine work and hope that the lower classmen will see to it that it grows and flourishes during their remaining days in the M. S. X. (
Page 82Child Study Club
The Child Study Club, organized by Professor (Mark and composed of such members of the senior class as care to join, held weekly meeting in the parlors of the dormitory during the second and third quarters of the year. Interesting reports were given by Professor Clark and by various mem tiers of the ('tub. A new plan was tried this year: that of having a basic text in addition to reports. This enabled the Club to make a more systematic and intensive study of child life.

The Young Women’s Christian Association has been one of the most active of the student organizations this year. The membership consisted of forty-five members. At the beginning of the year a reception was given for the new students. During the year various social functions were held, including a breakfast on the morning of Election Day and an informal reception in October when Miss Hopkins, the Northwest Field Secretary, visited the organization. Miss Hopkins spent October 17-21 at the Normal, planning the work for the year. Mable Taylor, the president, attended the State Cabinet Conference at Missoula, November 10 18. Mrs. Carver has had charge of a very interesting Mission Study Class, which met every Tuesday evening. Besides studying Mission Work in South America, the class has taken a course in Parliamentary Law. During the year interesting talks have lx?en given by Professor Clark, Dr. Humphrey, Miss Jean Bishop, and Miss Bettes. One of the memlx»rs of the organization will attend the Annual Conference at Seabeck, Washington, June 23 to July 3.

If the weather man had only been a little more lenient during the fall of 1916, it is safe to say that we would have had the most successful tennis tournament that has ever been staged on the Normal courts. Conditions were such that most of tlie games had to lie played during or between snowfalls. The instability of the weather prevented us from having the students’ mixed doubles.
Of the matches that were played, all were hotly contested to the very end. Big Bill Uollwitz and Henderson won the boys' doubles from Iloffland and Provow in three sets. This match was not decided until forty-six games had lieen played. All students of the game know that this result indicates some playing. Big Bill also came in strong in the boys’ singles. After he had cleaned up Provow and Henderson, it lx gan to look doubtful for the seniors, but Hoffland came to the rescue and saved the bacon for the upper classmen. However, old Bill made him go to the very limit to do it.
In tin girls’ games, Angeline Maris again came to the front and captured the trophy. Miss Stark’s brilliant playing carried her to the front when the faculty women's singles were decided. She was also a big help to Mr. Cluley in tin capture of the faculty mixed doubles. Mr. Cluley’s victory over Mr. Mosher in the faculty men’s singles was somewhat of a surprise. Ex. Ray had lx»en the undefeated champion for a number of years.
Tagf 9 Men’s Basket Ball
Well, they can’t say we were not game enough to start a team, anyway. All things have to start sooner or later, and I think the Chinook ought to give us some recognition on these pages in view of the fact that we made such a fine start. Of course we didn’t make any phenomenal record; but we did learn that a dribble was not the same as a four-sacker, and that a foul was not a ball batted into the alley on the left or right of the diamond. In other words, we learned some of the inside dope on the game.
Now it so happened that four of our—I was goitig to say stars, but guess I had better modify the term to players—are seniors; so you see that next year’s outcome depends upon the fall enrollment of the stronger sex. To any man that happens to read this article, I will say that this is a brilliant opportunity to cover yourself with glory. So don’t overlook any chance.
Now as to honorable mention, or whatever you have a mind to call it, I’ll begin with the Kaiser, who is on the back end of the picture. I guess it will Ik all right to start there; we were usually backward in scoring anyhow. Well, the Kaiser had some difficu’ty in getting his submarines in motion, but he was always on hand for practise and was one of the best natured guys on the team. The next one in line was our coach. Jack certainly was faithful to his charges and I hope that he stays with the team next year and develops a winner. Then that tall blond next in line thought it would improve the looks of the picture if he were in it. So Spurgin had the good grace to pose with us. Of course Spurge was a mighty good sub and it was white of him to come out and let us practise up on him. Now just take a good look at that next fellow, and see if you couldn’t pick out that face in a thousand. He was our center and a good shot, H3 was a bear at caging them in practise, but when it came to a game he used to miss one once in a while. That next fellow in line was the captain, and I think they say his name is Jimmy. He usually played guard and assisted Cluley in coaching. That kinky haired boy, second from the front, is Provow. He was a regular Sampson at guarding and usually got his man. The fair faced, curly haired lad in front is Hendy. If we had called him Speed the title would have been more nearly correct. He went so fast that a streak was all that was visible. We tried to get Murray into the picture too, but he was afraid of breaking the camera.Senior Basket Ball Squad

Page e 7Basket Ball Tournament
The basketball tournament of 1917 is long past but not forgotten. The tournament is an event of importance in the college year at the Normal. Many of the pilgrims who started to practise at the beginning of the season fell by the wayside or were lost in the “Slough of Despond”; and only a chosen few of each team were left at the close of the three months spent in preparation for the event. During the entire season the coaches or guiding lights, worked faithfully with their teams.
Here-to-fore it has been the duty of the coaches to referee the tournament games, but this year that duty was admirably performed by Mr. MoCandless of the Beaverhead County High School. Class spirit always manifests itself most at a time like this, but this year unusual enthusiasm was shown. All the classes turned out in full force with yells and banners to boost for their players. The bulletin boards in those days were full of class spirit, in the way of basketball practise and yell practise notices.
As for the players, they all did their share, every one of them. They did more than play, they worked. The Prep team, although it was their first trial, showed the other classes that they must beware of them in the future. The Freshmen held their record for size and real pop; they wore partakers in some very exciting games, for when the Froshios played, they played hard. The Juniors held their ground and, like the rest of the teams, did some work. They were unfortunate in having had to change coaches in the midst of their training, but nevertheless their team was a strong one. The Seniors were a little out of the race because of their unusual ability due to their height and their might.
The teams were all much stronger than those of last year and the tournament was in all respects a success. It ended without serious physical injury to the players. Likewise there was no serious emotional injury, as the usual hostilities among the classes did not arise. In all the games, those that won were slow to boast, and all in all th(‘ spirit of real Normal sportsmanship was shown.

Tap 99Summer Baseball
“Hit it on the nose!” “Knock it over the fence!” “Touch all the sacks!" Yells of this nature were heard for blocks around when the men faculty played baseball against the men students during the summer of 1916.
On every Wednesday after convocation, except when the speaker was especially long winded, we staged a fray on the grounds back of the college. 'This word fray seems to be too tame an expression, for the games were more nearly like combats.
When I first took my position back of the plate, 1 didn’t think that bunch of stiffs could have caught a ball in a bushel basket or have hit one with a snow shovel. But they surely did surprise me. They cleaned up on us the first game by a few points. We came back more determined than ever and in the second game won by a narrow margin. I just forget whether we handed the third game to them or whether it was superior playing on their part. If Spencer had only made good his threat and tied Dick Price out to the fence, Dick might have got his paws on a few balls in that game. Dick had a habit of running clear into second and then trying to reach up in the clouds for them, but he was always too short on one end. The result was that our elders would romp all the way around.
Well, this went on until at the end of five games the faculty were in the lead by one. We right then and there made up our minds that we were going to win that series in seven games if we all had to hit home runs over the fence to do it. The sixth was ours without any dispute and then came that eventful seventh. It was the hardest fought game of the bunch. Spencer landed on Ex Hay for four home runs, and Dick, the hitless wonder, cracked out two baggers. We were all hitting the ball to all corners of the lot, but the faculty were also taking very kindly to the Kaiser’s offerings. Well, to make a long story short, the mighty Gronnert, like Casey, fanned out with the sacks choked, and wo had the game on ice. The faculty were good losers however, and whenever Doc. Finch was approached, he would say, “Wait until next summer.”
Page tooThe Mai) Dai) Festival
The May Day Festival is prominent among the spring activities of the school year. It is a day that is looked forward to by everyone in the College, Training School, and city. The students of the College especially anticipate great things for this day, as it is the last event of the year in which every class has an opportunity to work for the M. S. X. C. The physical culture instructor has charge of the program and the training is commenced in the early part of March. Upon the festal day the children of the Training School march with a display of pretty costumes and to the beat of a drum up to the College Campus, where they join the students in the activities. It is a pretty scene with the winding of the May poles, the dances, and the calisthenie drills. A large crowd assembles to enjoy the performance.
Page lotA Summer Camp
By Nan Mount joy “Well, where on earth shall wc go, girls?”
“I know a lovely spot. It is only thirty miles away. We can have someone take us and our belongings up, and it is near enough to civilization so that if anything happens we won’t be entirely stranded. My brother was up there last summer, and he came back with glowing tales of the scenery, fishing, and hunting.” A group of bright-eyed young girls came slowly up the street. They were going to the home of their advisor, chaperon, and chum to discuss final plans for their summer camping trip, which was to l egin the first of July anti end the first of August.
As soon as the twelve were settled in Miss Grey’s cozy room, they renewed their discussion about some suitable place for the camp. Marie’s description of the spot, some thirty miles distant seemed most enticing to all. Marie’s brother's enthusiastic reports had certainly not suffered any loss in vividness when Marie retold them. So it was decided that they should go to Silver Lake Canyon. Miss Grey was to “mother” the crowd, and she volunteered to see to the hiring of transportation and the purchase of supplies. Miss Grey was an experienced camper. She knew how to get a maximum enjoyment from a minimum equipment.
During the next two weeks the girls were busy arranging their affairs and getting their camping clothes ready. None had ever before gone on a “really-truly” camping trip, and it took Miss Grey’s constant vigilence to keep down their plans for outlandish clothes, wonderful walking-boots, khaki hiking clothes, sleeping-bags. everything that had ever been invented to catch the fancy of the uninitiated was submitted to her with enthusiasm, enthusiasm which she promptly checked.
“Do not bring any but simple sensible clothes and good serviceable shoes. 1 know you have those things already. Get nothing new, but be sure each of you brings plenty of wraps and bedding. No sleeping bags, mind you.”
The day of the departure seemed made expressly for them. It was perfect. By six o’clock the small caravan was well on the way toward Silver Gate. A large hay rack well padded with clean, bright straw held the thirteen happy people, who had been awake since early dawn. More laboriously came a wagon loaded with bedding, tenting, and food supplies.
“We shall not rush through our trip in automobiles!” Miss Grey had said. We shall go by wagon so that we may enjoy every inch of the way. No doubt we’ll need to go farther up the canyon than any automobile can go.”
The roads were good, the weather was perfect, and the girls were in the brightest mood. Only one, Ellen, a good-natured girl of the “comfortable” type, had
Pa%t 104dropped into a profound sleep. Nothing could awaken her. As Ruth, the life of the party, had once said: “There may lx noise that will arouse the dead, hut I defy any noise to awaken Ellen when she is sleeping to form.”
It seemed no time at all until they had reached the mouth of Silver Gate Canyon. As if by magic all chatting and laughter ceased as they drew near the magic beauty there. As though guarding the loveliness beyond them, two gigantic gray cliffs towered to the sky. As the sun shone down on their smooth sides, they shone like silver—the Silver Gates. Through the narrow cleft between these two guards could lx seen a wealth of green. The wagon wound slowly and solemnly through the gate. A hush had fallen; even the creak of the wagon and the beat of the horses' feet seemed to stop in awe. All this pleasure seemed so petty, trivial in the presence of these changeless cliffs!
As they moved on up the canyon beside the rushing foaming mountain creek, the world they had left that morning was completely forgotten. Upon entering the Silver Gate they had changed. They were now of the mountains and of the “forest primeval.”
The wagons moved on and up until the road ceased to lx a road, and was a dim rocky trail. They had all l een watching for a suitable camping place but, as yet, had not seen one that suited at all. Soon, however, at a sharp turn in the trail there was a unanimous cry of delight. Here was a s| ot just made for them. To the right was a field soft and green and starred with flowers. On every side the mountains towered above the garden sjx t as though to keep in tin peace that hovered there. Even the mountain stream paused and widened out to rest in this spot. A gentle breeze faintly stirred the silver-green leaves of the aspens that grew on the lower slopes. Higher the dark pines thickly covered the mountain-sales.
By one o’clock they were thoroughly settled in camp. The two drivers had pitched their tents in a thoroughly bored way. Indeed, the men seemed to view the whole affair with that amused tolerance which men often times affect with women and their activities. There were seven small tents, one for each two girls and one for Miss Grey. They were to eat out-of-doors. The men had constructed a table beneath one of the large pines near the creek. The “kitchen” was near the creek. All cooking was to he done by a camp-fire on an iron grate made steady on Hugh flat rocks. Miss Grey suggested that the girls lx divided into two squads of six each. One squad was to do the dishes and general camp-work; the other, the cooking. They were to take turns at the different work so that it would be fair for all. The cooks were to rustle the fire-wood and see that an abundant supply was kept in a dry spot in case of rain.
After general plans had been made, came the more pressing immediate affairs. The men were summarily dismissed with short rations, and the girls went about the making of their l eds. They climbed up the mountain-side to a fragrant grove of soft-needled fir. They broke off the end branches and piled them high in their
Page 105blankets. On the floor of each tent they put layer after layer of fragrant fir-branches. They used only the soft bushy ends, the stifTer thicker parts of which they thrust downward. At the end of an hour of enthusiastic work, each bed was an enticing fragrant heap. They rivaled the ancients’ Ixxl of rose-leaves, they were better, in fact, for there would be no crumpled leaves to mar these beds.
At the end of a long, busy afternoon, they ate their first real meal in camp. Such a meal! Never had there been such delicious coffee; the bread was perfect; the bacon they had roasted over the flames was too delicious to 1m» described by mere words; and the same could be said of the potatoes baked in the hot ashes. The girls ate ravenously of everything. The eyes of the three cooks were unusually red, but most certainly not from crying. They had seemed to have the misfortune to get exactly in line with the smoke of the fire, every time they went near the “stove.”
For an hour or more after dark had come, they sat around a huge bon-fire. They sang songs, told ghost stories, toasted marshmallows, or sat silently, at peace with themselves and all the world.
Finally, they went to their soft beds, to lie peacefully on the fragrant pine, close to the sweet, warm earth, surrounded by a thousand whispering noises of the night; they could hear the crooning of the wind in the pines far above them and the dull roar of the creek in the distance.
As their first day passed, so passed many more; days full of golden sunshine and joyful laughter. Every task was so easily and so gladly done. But one day the unexpected happened. It rained! The rain began in the morning l efore dawn. By six o’clock, everything was wet, especially the girls’ spirits. They huddled forlornly in their tents, fearing to move; one or two of them had carelessly brushed the soaked canvas and had been deluged immediately. All morning it rained; they grew stiff and hungry and cross. It seemed as though the sun never had shone and never would shine. But the rain finally stopped and the sun shone down, kindlier than ever. The whole world was refreshed; the green of trees and grass was sparkling; the color of the flowers more vivid. And owing to the forethought of Miss Grey, there was nothing even dampened by the rain, except the bedding.
When the girls had thoroughly explored the beauties of nature that were close at hand, they decided to venture farther afield. They had heard of a beautiful lake about ten miles up the canyon and decided to visit it. Their plan was to start in the early morning, walk to the lake with provisions and bedding, stay all night under the open sky, and be back to the camp by evening of the next day.
In the gray dawn the camp was astir. Most of the occupants had crawled out of lx?d with a reluctance which had soon vanished in the sparkling morning. Each girl made a roll of her bedding, which she fastened securely to her shoulders, leaving her hands free to carry her provisions. The scarcely marked trail led them through avenues of grand old pines, through groves of delicate aspens, over
Page 106rocky cliffs, over the creek and back again by precarious foot-logs, through desolate reaches of fire-ruined pine forests, finally to the lake. View’d from the higher country around it, the little lake shone like a precious jewel in the dark green setting.
As the girls were famishingly hungry by this time, the first thing to consider was breakfast. Coffee, bacon, apples, burned and smoked toast, and boiled eggs. What a breakfast! What though the coffee had tipped over and gotten full of ashes, or the smoke had filled their eyes and blackened the bread and bacon? Nothing in the world makes a meal so good as good-spirits and hunger.
After breakfast they embarked on the lake, three of them in a little clumsy boat and the rest on a hugh awkward raft. Those in the boat discovered that it leaked alarmingly, but they also discovered a tin bucket; so they stayed in the boat, taking turns at bailing, rowing, or fishing with their improvised rods. With proverbial beginner’s luck they had caught six fish by noon-time. The process of killing the poor dear things was so painful that they pulled ashore quite content with their catch. Those on the raft had caught thirteen beautiful trout; but had also been partially ducked, owing to the fact that the three heaviest girls had inconsiderately gotten on the same side of the raft and caused the rest to lose their balance.
At noon they cooked their trout. The fact that they had had to clean fish, and for the first time at that, did not in the least affect their appetites. Fresh trout, cooked without tlie slightest attempt at making them appetizing, have a way of tasting Iwtter than anything else on earth.
The afternoon was spent in a less strenuous fashion. Most of the girls lay under the trees reading or simply dreaming. Some of the more energetic gathered fir needles for making pillows.
As the night drew near they considered places for their l eds. Near the lake was a grove of stunted trees, whose lower branches brushed the ground and made a soft inviting cradle. As soon as the girls saw these natural beds, they were satisfied, and they started immediately to arrange their covers, happy in the thought that nature had so kindly solved their problem. Miss Grey however, made a deep trench in the soft sand near the lake for her bed and she advised them to do the same.
About midnight there was a general stir in the trees.
“() oh! I am nearly frozen. The wind comes right up underneath these old branches and is chilling me to death!”
“I’m too miserable to move.”
“I’m shaking like a leaf."
After an hour or more of misery they held a consultation and emerged in a body from the grove. They came out upon the soft sand and each dug her a pit. A weird, uncanny picture they made, twelve quiet figures working desperately in the moonlight. But for the rest of the night they slept in peace.
Page toyThe morning and most of the afternoon they spent in leisurely wanderings, gathering the lovely mountain flowers and in idling in the shade of the trees.
At four o’clock they started back to their camp. They went again through all the beauties of wood and stream and reached camp at twilight, a thoroughly, blissfully tired group.
So the days passed. Each day brought its joy; very few brought anything but joy. The month fairly flew by. They were absolutely undisturbed save for the drivers who brought them provisions twice during their stay. As the end drew near and they thought of their return home, it was with a strange mixture of reluctance and eagerness. They could live up in the se mountains forever, and yet—-.
“The first thing I do when I get home,” vowed Eileen, the beauty, “is to get rid of this awful coat of tan.”
“My, I’ll be so glad, to have some good ice-cream and some eggs that aren’t boild,” signed Ellen. Poor game Ellen! She hadn’t had enough to eat nor enough sleep for a whole month.
“I wonder how much the styles have changed.”
“I hope they have a swell dance right away.”
“Don’t ever mention trout to me. I am sick of them.”
“I have spoiled all of my clothes. I'll have to spend the rest of vacation making things to wear.”
Nevertheless they sighed with real regret as they drove out of the canyon at sunset, and the Silver Gates closed behind them, shutting in all the beauty that had given them so much pure joy.
On the “Go”“Go”
The clay in its dawning looked cold and bleak And the storm clouds hung quite low,
But old Father Sol let tin sunshine leak When he thought of the Normal “CIO.”
And just when the girls had decided to walk The hay racks came down the. road;
And they piled right in, never stopping to talk.
And quickly the hay racks did load.
But Scotty was dressed up and didn’t like hay,
So he rode in the tally-ho;
And some hungry girls, whose names 1 can't sav. Took the “Grub wagon” on that “GO.”
When they reached Sheep Canyon they all piled out How they longed for the coming treats.
They praised up the scenery all about But all they could see was “Eats.”
Then Monroe went hiking over the hills,
Whistling a faculty ballad,
While Mosher peddled hot coffee and dills And “Bobby” passed the salad.
Many hiked to the rye patch away out there,
And some got lost in the mountains.
Some, looking for nature’s beauties so rare, Discovered big fish in small fountains.
Then back to the Normal in hay racks again.
(They speak of those hay racks yet.)
And when they got soaked by the pouring rain They wondered that it was wet.
M. L. ’17.

One bright morning in early September, Merle Blake eamc skipping into the room which served as dining room and kitchen, where her invalid mother was busily knitting, and her elderly father was smoking his corn-cob pipe and reading the newspaper.
Merle was a bright rosy girl of about sixteen. Around her face, her soft brown hair curled in ringlets. Her brown eyes were sparkling with mischief, and one could tell at a glance that she had something which she could scarcely wait to tell.
The room which she entered was humbly furnished, the furniture consisting of an old-fashioned stove, an oil-cloth covered table, a home-made cupboard of pine boards, a wicker rocking chair, two straight-backed kitchen chairs, and a stool. The floor was of rough pine, and one braided rug lay before the stove. In spite of the poverty which one could see written so plainly on every object in this humble room, everything was spotlessly clean.
The father looked up from his paper, upon Merle’s hurried entrance, and frowned up at her over the rims of his spectacles. “Well.” he growled to the young manager, “what did Ferguson have to say about buyin’ that wheat?”
“Oh, just think, daddy, he says he wants it all, and it’s going up, and it’s worth two and a quarter to him. He’s coming for it to-morrow.” exclaimed Merle in her excitement. Her tanned face was all aglow, and for the moment her seven freckles were entirely forgotten.
“Child, can’t you never fergit this nonsense? And can’t you never talk sense? Now, how much did he offer you fer that wheat?”
“Now, Father,” interrupted Mrs. Blake, “don’t be too hard on the child. You’re always hasty. Come and tell mother about it. dear.”
Merle ran to her mother’s side, and insisted that it was two and a quarter a hundred, and she hadn't made a mistake. The father was finally convinced, and went out to sack the grain for delivery.
That night at the supper table, Mrs Blake enquired, “Father, how much do you think the grain will come to this fall? If it’s enough, now that the mortgage is paid off and we are once more square with the world, I'd like it ever so much if we could send our baby away to school this winter.”
Merle looked up eagerly.
“Nonsense,” retorted the father. “She’s got all the school in a gal of her age needs, and what’s more, we’ll need her at home.”
Pagf 112“Oh, daddy, do lot mo go. I’ll work ever so much harder, and you know how I’ve longed to go for over throe years now.” Her lips quivered, and a wistful look came into her eyes.
After much pleading on the part of Merle, and arguing on the part of Mrs. Blake, Mr. Blake consented to the “idiotic plan." Then followed two weeks of good hard work of preparation for school. W hen the time came to separate, Merle found it harder than she had thought and had it not been the thought of making her father triumphant, she would have remained. But greater than the child’s sacrifice was the mother’s upon giving up her one comfort. As the days passed slowly by she Ix'gan to look eagerly forward to the time when her child would return to her home in Montana from the academy in Michigan.
In the mean time, Merle found it hard to adjust herself to her surroundings, since she was so different from the other girls. Many times she soblxid herself to sleep on her pillow, as the result of some unkind word or action. At these times her roommate was her one comfort. However, after about a month's residence at the academy, if ever there was a second “Patty” Merle was she. This same quality, which afforded so much amusement to the girls at first, aroused interest in the teachers. They admired the way in which she applied herself to her studies; and her language teacher especially found herself becoming more attached to the girl every day.
“This language teacher, Annie Ferguson, was a sister of Jack Ferguson who had bought the wheat, and enabled Merle to go to school. When Anne wrote to him of her interest in the girl, he immediately asked her to find some way in which he could help Merle without her knowing it. because he knew that she was too proud to accept help from anyone. Anne suggested that he help the old folks in some way that would put them into a condition where they would Ik able to furnish Merle with sufficient money to complete her education.
It was upon the receipt of this letter, that Jack recalled a conversation which he had had with Mr. Blake nearly a year ago, in which he had mentioned an old prospect hole which lu did not have funds to develop. Immediately, Mr. Ferguson rode over to the Blake farm and introduced tin subject of mines. He made the proposition that Mr. Blake let him see what he could do with the old prospect upon the condition that if it turned out well, the two men would go into partnership. Reluctantly, Mr. Blake accepted the proposition and after a few days, real work was l egun. But the prospecting had not gone far when the men struck a vein of silver ore, which was apparently inexhaustible. More miners were employed and Blake and Ferguson made money “hand over fist.”
As a result of this gcKxl fortune. Merle found it possible to finish her course at the academy. During commencement week, she was pleasantly surprised to find that Mr. Ferguson was among the guests. She was still more surprised when he stated that since business was so prosperous, he had come to take her and Anne to Montana for a vacation. Merle was delighted and could hardly wait to get started. Once on the train, the friendship between them grew; and during the
Pagf i jhappy days that followed it grew still stronger. Everything that could afford the two girls amusement during that joyous summer was gladly procured by .Jack. And when the time came for the two to return to their duties, Jack found that Montana had never been so lonely before.
The next year Merle secured a position as teacher in a Michigan school. She worked faithfully and her school proved a great success. Early in the year she was asked to stay the next year.
Hut, in spite of her love for her work. Merle was more than glad when the beginning of a vacation found her once more at the old home, which she had left for the first time five years before.
To l)e sure, Jack Ferguson was a frequent caller at the Blake home; and he and Merle spent many pleasant hours together during that vacation. One evening near the close of those summer days, as the two were returning from a long horse-back ride, Jack told Merle that he thought she was needed more in Montana than in Michigan; and asked her if she did not think so too. Merle always had liked the West.

By Mabel Taylor
“Ting- a- ling- a- ling—ling! ” went the alarm clock. It was half past five and time for Mary Ryan to get up She lay still only an instant, and then arose and dressed hurriedly. As she dressed, she made plans for the day's work. “I shall hurry and get my sweeping done early this morning, for I must work on that debate for a few minutes before breakfast. I don't sec how 1 shall ever be able to debate by Friday night."
She left the room and began her daily tasks of cleaning the halls of the dormitory. As she worked her mind was busy. She had been in college since September; now it was April, and her dreams of college life had as yet failed to come true. She had dreamed of the many friends she would make, of the good times she would have. Why hadn’t she made friends? Why didn’t tin girls associate with her? Why couldn’t she have good times, too? She wondered if it was because she was poor, and had to work for an education. She did not know. Things were certainly different from what she had anticipated. She had planned so long for a college course and had been so pleased when it had actually become a reality. She turned these things over in her mind as her broom flew over the floors. When she returned to her room it was half past six. Only a half hour before breakfast! She stepped to the window to open it. What a beautiful sunrise! The eastern sky was one mass of shell-pink clouds. The girl stopped for a moment to look at them. “Oh, they make me think of home,” she said half aloud. “I wonder if mother is looking at the sunrise now. Dear little mother, what if she knew how lonely I am? I can’t bear to tell her that it isn’t what I thought it would lx -but this won’t do, I must get busy.”
She turned on the light and sat down beside her table and soon was busily studying. She was a small girl of about eighteen years. She had dark brown hair and large wistful brown eyes. Perhaps she hadn’t made friends, and perhaps she didn’t have good times, but no one could deny that she was one of the best, if not the best student of the freshmen class. Possibly this was why she hadn’t made friends. The girls were somewhat jealous of this plain little country girl who always knew her lessons.
For a month now she had been working on the affirmative side of the interclass debate. She and her colleague, Alice La moil t, had won in the preliminaries, and had been working long and faithfully ever since. Alice and Mary had nothing in common. They worked on the debate, but otherwise saw very little of each other. Their opponents, sophomore girls, Fannie Mayfield and Gertrude Brown, were also spending ever spare minute on their side of the debate. They, too, had left their cozy beds early on this bright April morning to work. They were arranging and rearranging their points.
“Won’t it lx a relief when this thing’s done?” said Fannie. “I suppose we’ll lose, but f shall be glad when it’s over.”
“Pessimist! Why, we’re not going to lose. Do you think the brilliant sophomores are going to let the freshmen win the laurels? I guess not! ’’
“That’s well enough to say, but I’m rather afraid of that little Mary Ryan. Still we have some | oints that are practically impossible to meet; some, too, that
Page nsI don’t believe they have even thought of. I must work on this last part, though, for I scarcely know what it’s about. I’d l e up against it if I lost these notes ’ “You won’t lose them. That pink paper will take care of that.”
“Well, it’s all I had at the time, so there.”
Just then the breakfast bell rang. Gertrude and Fannie laid down their papers and started for the dining-room. Mary, too, heard the bell, but decided that she could spend her time more profitably by studying than by eating: so she remained in her room.
Breakfast was soon over. Gertrude and Fannie went to their room and began to gather up their papers.
“Gertrude!” exclaimed Fannie in such a queer tone that Gertrude looked up in amazement.
“What’s the matter?”
“I can’t find the last two pages of those notes,” said Fannie, “and I left them right here. Where do you suppose they are? ”
“They must be here somewhere. They couldn’t get away.”
The girls looked and looked. They emptied the waste basket , shook the rugs, and went through the pa| ers again and again, but in vain. While they were busy turning things upside down, Grace Allerton and Helen Duncan came in.
“What are you girls doing? Not house-cleaning today, are----------” Helen
stopped short. She saw that something was wrong.
“Why, girls, what is the trouble?”
“We can’t find the last two pages of our notes for that debate, and they’re the ones that we especially need. We left them right here with the rest '
Helen and Grace exchanged glances. Fannie noticed this and said, “You girls didn’t take them, did you?"
“No indeed, we don’t know anything about them. I wish that we did.” “Why did you look at each other in that way? I thought surely you knew something about them.”
“We didn’t know, we just thought,” said Grace.
“Thought what? ”
“Well, you know Mary Ryan didn’t go down to breakfast this morning.” “What of it? ” But as she spoke, Fannie’s expression changed. “Oh, she wouldn’t, would she? What would be her object?”
“I don’t know. It looks rather suspicious. She’s such a queer little thing, anyhow. She never has had anything to do with any of us.”
“Well, girls, have we ever made it our business to be pleasant to her? Or has any one else, for that matter.” This from Gertrude.
“Oh, Gertrude, there you go again. You’re always sticking up for people, no matter what happens,” said Helen.
It was a sad group of sophomores who started to school that morning. It did not take long for the news to spread and bv noon everyone was positive that Mary had taken the papers. They did not stop to reason why she would take them.
Poor Mary had noticed that something was wrong. Knots of girls seemed to be taking about her, wherever she turned. At noon she went to talk with Alice about their debate. Alice just barely spoke to her, and that was all. Mary
Pagf u 6was dumfounded. “Alice, what on earth has happened? What have I done? Everyone acts so odd ’
“I should think you of all persons would lx the last to ask wlmt has happened. Why did you take Fannie’s notes? Everyone knows you did it. How can we win now?”
Mary opened her mouth as if to speak, then turned and left the room. So that was what they thought. The girl went to her own room and sat down to think. What could she do? It would do no good to deny it. No one would believe her. It would lx foolish to withdraw from the debate. There was nothing to do but go into it with all the vigor and vim she had. and win. She would do her best and hope for the best.
The next two days were exciting ones. Gertrude and Fannie determined to do their lx st with what they had. Alice decided to work up her part to the lx st of her ability. “We can’t give up the debate now." she thought, and“surely it will lx proved Friday night in Mary’s s|x ech whether or not she took those notes.” Friday night came at last. The students from not only the freshmen and sophomore classes but from the whole college were present. From the beginning, the debate was interesting, but the sophomore representatives did not put the spirit into it that the freshmen girls did.
The debate was over. The judges had retired to make their decision. The audience was anxiously waiting, but each one in that audience knew that Mary’s speech had won the debate for the freshmen.
As they sat waiting, Fannie Mayfield again stepped to the platform. Needless to say the audience was surprised. Fannie ap|x arcd embarrassed but began bravely, “Friends and classmates,” she said, “I have an apology to make. Most of you know that we have accused Mary Ryan of taking some of the notes which we had prepared. This noon I met little Nora Blake. Six had our notes in her hand. I was surprised, to say the least. I asked her where she got them. She said she found them on the campus. They must have blown out of the window, and in our excitement we never thought of that. The notes were written on pink paper, and Nora thought the blank side of the paper would do for paper doll dresses. She took them home, but her mother, knowing of the debate, told her she had lx tter bring them back.”
“I didn’t know what to do when I got them, and I really don’t know why I didn’t tell Mary at once. I take this opportunity to apologize for tlx miserable week I have caused her.”
She left the platform just as the judges appeared with their decision. “Affirm-tive, one; affirmative, two; affirmative, three,” was read.
At once the audience was on it’s feet. “Rah! Rah! Rah! Freshmen.” Rah! Rah! Rah! Freshmen." Then “Rah! Rah! Rah! Ryan! Ryan! Ryan! ”
The girls were crowded around Mary and offering congratulations and apologies. Mary could only gasp, “I'm so glad. I’m so glad.”
The girls took Mary to their room and made fudge in honor of the occasion. They discovered that she was worthy of their friendship, after all.
That night Mary wrote to her mother and told her the whole story. She finished by saying, “I’m really glad it happened, for now I have friends.”
Page 117Bell of Death Canyon
By Dorothy Williamson
Mr. Bonnet, a forest ranger, and his family were living in the Boulder River Mountains near a little town called Ruby City. Their home was located in a beau-tiful spot at the mouth of a grand deep canyon, which wound far hack into the depths of the mighty Rockies. People living in this vicinity called it “Death Canyon,” because so many accidents had taken place in it. These accidents were due to the fact that, on account of the canyon’s being so narrow and deep, the trail had been made around some exceedingly hazardous places.
Mr. Rennet’s daughter Bell, was home from Haverhill College spending the summer vacation. One day Bell was passing a few leisure moments sitting in the porch swing crocheting. Suddenly an unusually loud ring came from the telephone just inside the door, near Bell. She. being the only person at the house, answered the call.
It was from Mr. Harrington, superintendent of the Leadville mines, which were on the main divide of the Rockies.
“Is this Mrs. Bennet? ”
“No, it is Bell Bennet.”
“Miss Rennet, your father was thrown from his horse today and injured, but not seriously. We are caring for him here at the mine. He is very anxious to come home, where he can get medical treatment,” said Mr. Harrington.
“I will come at once, Mr. Harrington,” said Bell, “if I can possibly catch the saddle pony we have in the pasture.”
Mr. Harrington spoke hurriedly and told Bell that her father’s horse had gotten away from him and gone to the mountains. Bell was exceedingly nervous and excited, not knowing how seriously her father might be hurt. She ran to the garden to tell her mother about Mr. Bonnet’s misfortune and then on to the pasture to set if she could catch the saddle horse. The pony was not gentle and was rather shy of Bell at first. But by a little coaxing with a bucket of oats, she succeeded in getting the animal to follow her into the barn, where she and her mother managed to saddle him.
After several attempts, Bell mounted the steed and was dashing up the road. She waved a “Good bye” to her mother with her left hand while she had a firm hold on the reins with her right.
Upon entering Death Canyon, Bell noticed for some distance ahead of her the rugged trail she had to travel and realized her great danger. As she rode along one of the perilous places in the trail, she could look straight down for one hundred feet and see a roaring, dashing mountain stream. It seemed to Bell that she could hear her heart beat with fear and horror. She was expecting that any minute her pony would make a misstep and she would be thrown to the bottom of that mighty precipice. But she rode bravely on. Nearing the end of the cliff she looked up and saw her father’s horse coming toward her. As he was wild. Bell knew she could not walk up to him, so she turned around, rode back across the cliff, tied her horse, came back on foot, and met her father’s horse. The path was so narrow the horse
Page 118could not turn around, and Hell caught him. She led him down the trail to where her horse was tied, but decided to ride neither of them back across tin cliff. Being a good walker she was soon down in the canyon once more and once again she felt safe and resolved to ride.
Then, alas, Mr. Ben net’s horse suddenly refused to Ik led. But a happy thought came; Bell tied the lead rope around her saddle horn and started on. To her surprise the horse lunged, bucked, and pulled back with such force that the cinch of Bell’s saddle broke. As it was jerked from her pony’s back, Bell was thrown headfirst into a large pile of boulders, the fall rendering her unconscious.
Some few minutes later when Bell opened her eyes, she saw that she was lying in the shade of a big cottonwood tree, and her head was upon a coat, 'fuming her head, she saw a man bending over the brook which was close by. The man had the napkin in which Bell’s mother had wrapped her lunch, and was drenching it with water. Bell put her hand to her face and hair; both were wet and cool. She wondered who this kind man was and where she could have been going when he found her. When he started back to her. a look of relief and joy passed over the young man’s face, for he had had fears that she were dead.
Bell’s countenance wore a look of surprise and half fear when six raised herself up. “Where am I. and who are you? ” she asked in an astonished tone.
“You are in Death Canyon; I found you lying in a pile of rocks unconscious and I have been working with you for an hour trying to bring you to. My name is Ralph Hamilton. I am staying at the Leadville mine. An you not Mr. Bonnet’s daughter who started from home sometime ago to get him? "
“Yes. And I wish to thank you for being so kind to me. I know that I have put you to a great deal of trouble and delay. But it is all my own fault. I'll never do such a foolish trick again." Then six told him her experience in horse leading. “Have you seen anything of the horses? "
“Yes, Miss Bonnet, 1 saw one of them, your father’s, I presume; and as it seemed to me, something was dragging along behind. The horse was headed toward your home. If you are feeling better. I’ll go for a short distance down the road and see if 1 can overtake him.”
“Oh, I wish you would. Mr. Hamilton, for if tlx horse goes home,with the saddle dangling behind, mother will die of fright. And I feel much better now.” Mr. Hamilton left Bell sitting under the big shady cottonwood. Six watched him out of sight, and then turned her thoughts toward her father. Now they were both crippled. Bell’s ankle was burning and paining so badly, she decided to bathe it in the cool water. So she crawled to tlx bank of the little stream on her hands and knees. There she bathed the swollen and inflamed foot; six tore up a couple of handkerchiefs which she found in her sweater pocket and bound her ankle tightly.
She was almost back to the trees again when Mr. Hamilton rode into sight. He had failed to catch tlx vagabond. Immediately he said, “Miss Bennet, we will have to hurry if we make it to the mine before your father’s horse reaches home. Ye must try our utmost to save your mother from that scare . Bell, you ride my horse and I shall walk.” As Bell attempted to mount he noticed that six was holding her ankle. “Have you thrown your ankle out of place? " he asked, “or have you sprained it? ”
“Oh, it seems to 1m? bruised a little,” said Bell in a voice which told she was in terrible pain. As she stood up to get on the horse, a sharp pain went through her ankle and she would have fallen had not Mr. Hamilton supported her. He helped
I'agf noher into the saddle and soon they were on their way to the mine. As they rounded the point of a small hill, a whinny was heard in some willows not far from the trail. Mr. Hamilton went to see if it were Bell’s pony, and he soon returned leading the runaway.
They arrived at the mine about six that evening. Mr. Hamilton helped Bell from the horse into the tent where her father was, and then rushed to the telephone to call Mrs. Bennet.
“Oh, how severely are you hurt, daddy?” said Bell, kissing him tenderly.
“Well, Bell! ” said Mr. Bennet in alarm, “you are hurt; I was just afraid of that when mother told me you were coming on that horse.”
“But daddy, it was your horse that caused the trouble, not the one that I was riding.”
Bell told her father how it had all happened and then Mr. Hamilton’s mother bathed the injured ankle in water as hot as Bell could stand, applied some liniment to take out the swelling, and bound the foot up so it would not l e quite so painful. Mrs. Hamilton had a delicious supper for them, but Bell had been through so much worry and distress during the day that her appetite was small.
The next morning Mr. Hamilton gave Bell his horse to ride home and Mr. Bennet rode the other. They were riding along talking about how dangerous Death Canyon was, when they spied Mr.Bennet’s horse some distance ahead of them in the trail with the dragging saddle firmly caught between two large boulders. It was now a puzzle how to get the horse loose, since Mr. Bennet had a disabled arm an 1 Bell a crippled ankle. Mr. Bennet held the horse while Bell hobbled to the saddle and untied the rope from the horn. Then they turned the horse loose and started him down the trail toward home. Bell’s father dragged the saddle over to his horse, which he had ridden from the mine bareback, and then assisted Bell over to help put tin saddle on. Finally Bell got the horse saddled and the two were on their journey once more. They arrived home safely, and indeed it was a happy family reunion.
During that summer Bell and Mr. Hamilton were brought into each other’s company many times and they became very intimate friends l cfore Bell returned to college in the fall.
Upon her graduation from Haverhill College three years later, Bell secured a position as English teacher in the Columbia High School. After receiving her first month’s salary, Bell walked into the First National Bank one afternoon to deposit the larger part of her earnings. Just as she finished transacting business with the cashier, the president of the bank walked in. On looking up Bell was much astonished and confused, for she recognized her hero of Death Canyon.
“Bell,” he exclaimed.
“Ralph,” she replied, as they clasped hands in a hearty shake.
“If you have no other engagement for the afternoon, Bell, will you come and lunch with mother and me, for I am sure she would Ik delighted to see you.”
“I’d be over-joyed to dine with you, Ralph, as I haven’t forgotten that wonderful lunch your mother fixed for us two once long ago.”
The cashier stood with a puzzled look upon his face, as Bell and Ralph left the bank.
Bell was a frequent guest at the Hamilton home during her term of school and one Sunday afternoon in June as she and Ralph were gliding along on Lake Cottonwood in his gasoline launch, they were talking of the near future, when
Page uoBell would Ik leaving for home. Bell had been dabbling her hand in the water during the little pause that fell between them, and when she looked up, Ralph was leaning on the steering wheel, with an expression in his eyes that made her say hastily, merely for tin sake of saying something.
“You must Ik tired, let me guide the launch."
“I am not tired, but you may take the wheel if you like. There’s room enough on this seat for two.”
Bell felt that she had not remedied matters much, but took the offered seat and accepted the wheel.
“How much I have enjoyed these boatings," said Bell, who objected to silence just then, “and to think they will soon be ended."
“I wish we might always glide in the same boat," said Ralph tenderly.
“Bell, will you, for I love you dearly ? ”
“Yes, Ralph, always,” very low, and sweetly.

K.I.D.—What is the difference between Mr. Clark’s nose and Mr. Cluley’s ? About one foot.
P. U. K. Please tell me which Mosher has more hair, E. R. or P. R. ?
We cannot reply with certainty, for so far there has not been time for more than an estimation.
G.A.L. Did Mutt differ much from a Normal man ?
Which one do you mean ? We have both the Mutt and Jeff types.
X.Y.Z. Which is correct : The teacher will change her name or The teacher shall change her name ?
In most cases neither is correct.
K.I.T. Is it true that the study of English at Normal colors one’s appreciation of literature ?
Yes. Some of the students said that The Blue Bird was read in the literature class.
W.I.Z. Why do they have a domestic science department in the Normal? Dr. Finch says that a teacher will have a greater success if she lx a natural bred mixer.

N.I.P.—Is it true that Professor Mosher has become very religous of late?
Yes. He seems to be especially interested in The Ads of Paul.

It is some extra work that the Seniors have every spring.

P«g ;Looking at the Clock!
In the General Office of a well-known Company of New York is a large clock.
For some years it hung in an out of the way place, hard to read, difficult to consult by the scores of people who depended upon it.
It has just been moved to the most conspicuous place in the office.
On its face is painted a sign to catch the eye of everyone who is seeking to ascertain the time.
The sign reads— “Anything to do? Get busy!”
Those who look up the time are thus reminded of the fact that time flies and they get busy.
This is a good policy.
Time is precious. Its loss cannot be really made up. Its waste is criminal.
This store is filled with stocks from everywhere and for everylxxly. In every Department, on every floor, in every corner, on every counter, it is more than likely you will find just what YOU want.
TAKE TIME BY THE FORELOCK!
Shop NOW—shop by mail if you live away from Butte, but shop NOW and shop at Symons when the truth of this notice is on you. NOW IS THE TIME to purchase, while quality is at its highest mark and assortments at their best. Don’t put off till later what you have time to do NOW!
