Joel Sutton Kendall.
Pnoiflssson j. S. KI5NDA1,1,, President of the North Texas
State Normal College since its establishment five years ago,
died October 7, 1906, at his home in Denton. Though for sev-
eral years he had been afflicted by that lingering malady, con-
sumption, his death was so sudden and unexpected that it
came as a great shock, not only to the students of the Normal,
but also to the citizens of Denton and innumerable friends
throughout the State.
Professor J. S. Kendall was born in Wilkes County,
Georgia, November 4, 1849, and was, when he died, about
fifty-seven years old. His early education was received in the
schools of Georgia. Later he was a student at the University
of Georgia and also at the University of Virginia.
His removal to Texas occurred in 1875, when he came to
Honey Grove, where he taught in the graded schools for nine
years. Later he went to Glasgow, Mo., where he for seven
years lilled the position of President of Pritchett College. On
his return to Texas, Professor Kendall became Superintendent
of the graded schools of Honey Grove, occupying that position
until elected Superintendent of Public Instruction in the State
of Texas. Resigning this office in 1899, he was appointed
President of the North Texas State Normal at Denton. Presi-
dent Kendall came to Denton during the year IQOI to take
up his work in this school, and to his untiring efforts is due in
a large measure the phenomenal success of this institution.
Throughout his life Mr. Kendall was a godly man and
took an active part in the affairs of his chosen Church, the
Methodist Episcopal Church. Besides his religious affiliation,
he was a member of three fraternal organizations, the Knights
of Pythias, the Masonic Lodge, and the Ancient Order of
United VVorkmen. '
President Kenda1l's high conceptions of the duties of his
position, his ardent work at all times, and his unceasing efforts
for the betterment of the North Texas State Normal have ac-
complished results almost without equal in the State. His
faith in humanity and his desire to uplift those with whom he
came in contact made for him hosts of friends, not only in
Texas, but also in almost every State of the Union.

In diligence to finclg a gift, that stands
In structure vowed to permanence.
' Lurk thou forever near our paths and speak
To us who wait for thy commands,
And leave us notg for thy defense
Is all we have. Although in spirit weak,
Yet with thy golden hilt within our reach
Our power will e'er withstand
That "namby-pamby " ignorance
Which our destruction of t hath planned 3
And wilt thou e'er protect us each
. ,When scattered o'er the wide expanse,
We teach the youth thy foe to shun.
Protect thou, ever, junior One.

A Legend of junior Two.
One moon-lit night on a lonely strand
That borders the shores of Normal "Land"
There paced with quick, impatient tread
A f'Wolfe," and thus to himself he said:
"To-night as I stole by yonder 'Kirk, '
To see what mischief I might work, .
I chanced to spy in the house of the 'Duke'-
At work in his kitchen--the fat chef, Luke.
And oh! some wonderful 'Roles' had he-
As light and 'Brown' as they could be.
Methinks, could I catch that cook away,
I 'd steal those 'Roles' ere the dawn of day."
just then a "Young" "Crabb" raised his head
From the regions of his sandy bed,
And softly laughed at the "Wolfe's" bold scheme,
But soon, however strange 't may seem,
The "Wolfe" and "Crabb" conceived a plan
More bold than many made by man.
And straightway in accordance then
The "Crabb " came quickly from his den,
Hopped on the back of the "VVolfe" so gay,
And both went laughing on their way.
Across the "Ford" and down the "Lane"
And by the waving fields of grain
They hurried till they reached the house
Of Mister "Duke" Then, like a mouse,
The "Crabb" into the kitchen crawled,
And pinched the cook until he bawled
Witl1 pain, and turned around to find
The cause. Then slyly from behind
The "Wolfe" appeared upon the scene,
Grabbed up the "Roles," and, with a mien
That beamed with triumph, cleared the gate
And left the poor "Crabb,' to his fate.
It is not certain just what end
Came to our thus deserted friend:
But rumor says a watching "Crow,"
Perched on a tree near the window low,
Beheld the baffled and angry cook---
Despite the pleading, plaintive look
Of little "Crabb"-take a frying-pan
And fry 'im from pink to a delicate tan.
And now, if you who chance to "Reade"
This legend suffer any need
Of extra facts, the thing to do
Is to ask a member of Junior Two.

THE BIG FOUR "WE.AKLY."
Yol. XX. REcEP'r1oN, HALL, MAy 2I,'I9I8. No. 138.
"H e fhat tootelh not his own horn gettelh it not looted."
This paper bows its coming into the literary, journalistic
iields, recognizing that efforts in this direction are continually
made. The fact that some are feeble and others strong has
not discouraged us in our preparation nor inllamed a desire to
cultivate journalistic plantations. N o paper has occupied the
scope surveyed or anticipated the plan to be pu'rsued.
BIG FoUR is devoted to unforeseen discoveries and inven-
tions. It will be issued just before the close and just after the
beginning of each century. It will furnish a special issue only
on the advent of some special occasions. If "old maid"
school-teachers are pleased, if heavenly bodies are displaced
from usual paths, or gravity loses its force, TI-IE BIG Form will
appear in its Sunday morning dress. It is not political,
though it may suggest the President of the United States when
the election occurs just after its regular mailing clay. On the
same principle, it may seat kings and emperors of other coun-
tries, plant Irish potatoes, set the old yellow hen, advertise use-
ful household remedies, and set in order fashionsg but its prime
mission is a discussion of inventions and discoveries yet un-
seen. Before seen, they will be discussed as though seen: the
discussion made when unforeseen will be fully conhrrned and
vindicated. Contributions on this line from a purely scientific
standpoint are solicited.

A Freshman' Une Party.
"Oh, do look here!,' cried Miss Miller, as she entered the
reception--room, holding up the daintiest invitation imaginable.
'LI-lave you received yours?"
"Yes! yes!" came the reply in chorus, "and it 's to be
given at the home of Miss Dunnegau.
"Where did you say it is to be?" asked Mr. Gray, a dig-
"At Miss Dunnegan's!" was thc reply.
Hlndced V' said Mr. Gray. "I do believe this is one time
I wish T were a 'Freshie' again. I happen to know something
of Miss .lJunnegan's ability as a hostess, and know she cannot
be excelled." ,
:la :5: 21: I :x :1: 1 21: :la :iz
There was great excitement at the home of Miss Dunnegan,
who, assisted by Miss Dicus, was to entertain Freshman Une.
The rooms were brilliantly lighted, and an air of expectancy
pervaded the whole house. By eight o'c1ock the guests began
Miss,Calfee declared there was no better way to begin than
by a vocal selection. Instantly all 'eyes were riveted upon Mr.
Mason. At, first he refused to sing, but finally, after much
persuasion, he consented. I-Ie selected that beautiful and
touching old ballad, "Be Careful of the Maben with the Dreamy
Eyes." His rich tenor voice floated out into the mght air.
just as he Hnished a loud noise was heard, and Miss Dunnegan
rushed to the window and looked out. "Compose yourselves,
girls! It 's just the Cannon come!" she cried.
As soon as the excitement was over, a Laughfljin' game
was proposed by Miss Blakely. "That 's Goodtwinj !" shouted
Mr. E. E. McCrary. "Get your partners, boys!" Of course,
the Martin immediately chose the Carpenter for his partner.
Miss Neely asked permission to choose her own partner. On
beingi granted her request, she made a dive for the Woods.
She was too late, however, for Miss Hibbitts had already
chosen him for her partner.
"I 'm just Aiki11 to get in that game with Miss Hardin,"
said Mr. Matthews, "but I 'll have to Settle with Mr. Elrod
if I do." .
Mr. J. A. McCrary won the prize, which was a beautiful
Mugg, because he had a Talley to begin wit.h.
After the game, refreshments were served. Mr. Barnett
and Miss Howard led the way into the dining-room, which was
tastefully decorated in Black and Green, the Class colors.
"Doesn't that fruit look like Graham bread?" asked
"Won't you have a slice?" inquired the hostess.
"No," replied Mr. Morrison, "I prefer a Vanderslice."
After returning- to the parlor, everybody made a rush for
the Couch. Mr. Embry and Miss Brashears reached it hrst.
"Aren't you afraid to be left alone with shears, Mr. Embry?"
asked Miss Kirk.
His answer was lost, for just at this time mutterings as of
distant thunder were heard, but, as they were accustomed to
such sounds in Mr. Sanders' room, no heed was paid to it.
But when the Cloud came up, they found that it was even more
serious than the thunder-storms in the arithmetic room, for,
as Mr. Clements declared, eve11 his Hood couldn't protect him
from the Hailfeyj. '
Miss Henfnenj declared that she must go, for all other
chickens were already in bed. Before the guests departed,
however, a vote of thanks was tendered the hostesscs by Miss
Bodovsky in behalf of the Class. ' ' '

KENDALL-BRUCE, LIYERARY SOCIETY
History of the Kendall-Bruce Literary Society.
The Kendall-Bruce Literary Society was organized on
September 30, 1901, taking its name from the two beloved
teachers, joel Sutton Kendall and William H. Bruce, the first
President and Vice-President of the North Texas State Normal.
From its organization to the present day it has had a life of un-
interrupted prosperity and usefulness, and has kept pace with
the steady advancement of the Normal. It has grown from
the little group of charter members until now there are names
of eighty-one members on the roll. 'On account of this large
membership, it has been the rule for the past three years to
divide the Society at every regular meeting into two debating
sections, and two debates are held in separate rooms at the
same time, in order that all members may appear on the pro-
gramme with beneiicial frequency.
The Kendall-Bruce Society has always won a generous
share of the honors to be gained in this school by the societies,
but, successful as it has been in gaining com petitive honois
its greatest pride has ever been in the very great benelit which
its members have derived from practice in public speaking
gained upon its floor. We very often have reminders of this
from the alumni, who occasionally wander back after winning
the smiles of Fortune in their chosen vocation, to tell us what a
help the K.-B. has been to them. A
The regular speeches on the programmes are of various
kinds. There are declamations, eloquent Websterian orations,
and debates, full of fire and facts. When these programmes
are carried out with earnest effort, as is usually the case, the
educative influence upon both participants and audience is
undisputable, and, in addition to this influence, we should not
fail to mention the genial good-fellowship which pervades these
gatherings of K.-B. men and rounds out and completes the
school life of all the members ol' the Society.

On the broadest of our prairies
By our students frequented,
There the fair and stately yucca-
Radiant flower--rears its head.
On the prairie it is monarch,
Growing lonely there.
Never student gazed in wonder
Stamens yellow, glorious, golden,
Hid beneath its bells of snow,
This, our chosen flower, the yucca,
Ever may it grow.
And every dagger-blade around it,
Guarding it each year
From the Vandals that have fou
Shields it e'er with tender care.
Upon flower half so fair.
Wandering students on that prairie
In the distance oft be-hold,
. Nodding faintly to the breezes,
Waxen bells all tipped with goldg
'Tis the yucca, and to them its meaning
Seems a surety:
As its yellow stands-so knowlcdgeg
As its white-so purity.
It is half-past nine, and I haven't looked at my History.
Oh, dear! Where is the book? It 's just awful to have such
a disorderly room-mate, who leaves her things lying around
and tears up yours. Oh, yes, I put it under the window to
keep the window partly open. I 'll just use one of hers to do
it with. They don't belong to her any way, and so it doesn't
make much difference. State's property is everyone's property.
"But I 'll declare! I wonder how long that room-mlte of
mine will stay down in the parlor talking to Mr. B---. It is
against the rules to have callers during the week, and I think.
the rules ought to be enforced. What is the use of having
rules if you do not intend to enforce them! Of course they say
they are studying. A great amount of studying they are doing,
I know! But oh my! I suppose I had better study this history,
or I shall not do more than they are doing. I don't see the use
of studying history so much any way. I am sure I don't care
what those old Egyptians did live thousand years before
Christ. I don't see why Athens and Sparta could not have
united instead of, having that terrible Peloponnesian War,
then the juniors of the Normal School would not have to learn
all those hard names and dates. But we never grumble-we
enjoy it immensely.
Who was it that built the Parthenon, any way? If I
haven't forgotten it already! But I am not surprised, for I
never could remember anything in history except that Socrates
drank the fatal hemlock, and our teacher doesn't want us to
There! I believe a norther has come. I am surely glad
it is not my week to make the fires. Perhaps it will be warm
by next week. Guess I had better close the window. There!
-that old book dropped down. Well, it is her English, and
she won't need it to-night, so I 'll just leave it until in the
morning. But I suppose it can stay out there for all she cares'
I am sure she never hurts herself studying it. I don't think
she knows that the verb be can't take an object- at least she
doesn't show it if she does, for she is always saying, "It is me."
And the time has come again when we poor juniors of the
Normal must try our skill in story-writing. Of course this is
no hard task, as all juniors were naturally born writers, poets,
or grammarians, or at least our teacher thinks so. Psycholo-
gists tell us that we have about seven million empty brain-cells,
but do you think a junior is to believe this after he sets every
cell into vibration trying to study out a complete plot of a
story with a subject that would frighten even Shakespeare?
For instance, here is a subject: "How Uncle Ned Won Mandy "
--just as if we knew how "Uncle Ned" did his love-making or
proposing. Now, anyone ought to know that a Normalite
knows 'nothing at all about love-making. How can we be ex-
pected to know anything about "Uncle Ned" or "Mandy"
either, when we have to read "Caesar's Gallic War," in which,
I am sure, there is no love-making?
Vlfhat is the use of having a regulation pin for the students
of the North Texas State Normal? Cannot anyone who has
ever been there tell any of his fellows by the lank, lean, longing
look on their faces? We work so hard and long, so earnestly,
to see "As" and not "Ds" on our report-cards that our very
faces tell we are Normalites. just think of the work we have
to do here! Besides English and History, there is Geometry,
with originals galore. just the other dziy Mr. Butler had us
construct a triangle with nothing given but the three medians.
Then there is Algebra, the delight of all juniors, and Physics,
which is impossible for girls to learn, and, besides, Psychology.
How can I describe it! We have only about one hundred
emotions to learn the definitions of-not many-but you just
try to learn them. Miss Hillyar has us do all kinds of drawing,
and Miss Boylan-just think of it !-actually had us 'write
original melodies CPD, and then she played them on the piano.
Now we do not grumble at all about this work, we enjoy itg it
will be the making of us.
What a time we do have with that Geology! What a host
of outlandish names Mr. Long has us put in the outline! such
as rhamphorliynchus phyllurus, archzeopteryx macroura, etc.
Mr. Long says, too, that We must learn all these names "ab
initio, all finem, ex catlzedra, in 11zcumriam."
I wish I were teaching now. I think I shall like it so much
better than going to school, at least I hope I shall. I Wonder
where I shall teach? I hope my uncle will get me a school near
him. Won't I be proud when I draw my first salary! I think
it is so nice for a girl to be independent and not have to depend
on her brothers and father for everything. Won't it be nice to
buy anything I want and not have to ask someone lox the
Dear me! if the town clock isn't striking ten, and she has
not come up yet. That must be she now coming up the steps.
She has gone in to talk to those girls across the hall. I-Iow they
are laughing! I wonder what she is telling them? I think
they had better get to studying instead of enjoying themselves
so much. I wonder who will do the laughing next May?

If I just knew how to listen to the songs that Nature sings,
To the leaves, the birds, the breezes, the innumerable things,
Perhaps I could rise above the sordid, common things of lifeg
Could lay down the many burdens, and forget about the strife,
And perchance my heart might overflow with the pure joy
And I 'd sing a song of gladness for the pure joy of giving.

If thedway were all lonely, the road a bit rough-
He had trust in his strength and that was enough.

Had come to the Normal, of knowledge in quest.
So boldly he entered the Normal School wall
ilffong teachers and scholars and visitors all.
lhen spoke the head teacher, his hand on his arm
CFor the poor festive cowboy stood still in alarmj:
"O come ye for work here, or come ye for joy, '
Or to idle your time, young festive cowboy?"
"I 'll stay here a while," the boy did reply,
"And for some of this larning I 'll just take a try."
so the young festive cowboy stayed out of the West,
'l hough.all through the Normal he his books did detest.
To skating his time he would often devote,
And go to his classes sans one English note.
One day, feeling sad, a maid he saw near.
Now she may have thought he looked rather queer 5
Hut, perceiving how lonely he seemed in that throng,
She sweetly inquired could she help him along.
just then sly Dan Cupid two arrows let fly,
And two tender hearts were pierced at one try.
But the cowboy in lessons no more did improve,
And all that he studied was poems of love.
"Can't you 'sabe' Physics?" the teacher would say,
"I try to explain it here day after day.
Your mind is unsteady and you are not wiseg
You 'll never win fame if you 11e'er try to rise."
"Well, so much for that, but I hope that some day
You 'll thank me for talking to you in this way."
Now the maid heard these words, and she said to the boy
"If you 'd show them a few, it would give me great joy."
So he went to his classes from then without doubt,
And he told everything that they asked him about.
Emotion, perception, thought-culture, and willg
Did algebra problems with ease and with skill.
He also could draw-his perspective was good,
And out in the ."Gym. " he would show that he could
Compose little melodies, sing, and beat time,
Draw staffs with four spaces, write poems with rhyme.
So all through the second and third busy terms
His mottoes were "Try" and also "Be Brin",
So the maiden rejoiced when instead of the "Ds"
Received in the hrst term he now had all HBS."
So you see now the uses of co-education,
Why this system is needed by every great nation.
And the cowboy, a graduate, one of our best,
Bore this maiden back home with him far in the West.
The Reformation of Nebuchadnezzar-Nehemiah.
, l-IE following story is told of an old negro by the
A name of Nebuchadnezzar Nehemiah, who lived
in East Texas shortly after the close of the
Civil War. Nehemiah usually worked for the
white people during the spring and fall, while
his summers were spent in conducting revival
One day about the time for the begin-
ning of the religious awakening, Mr. Terry, his
I former master, called him and said:
"Nehemiah, the people tell me that you
are a great preacher." I
'tYes, massa, de Lord do help me powerful sometimes."
t'Well, Nehemiah, don't you think the negroes steal little
things on the plantation sometimes?"
"I 's mighty feard dey does, massa."
"Then, Nehemiah, during every revival I want you to
deliver to the negroes a series of sermons about stealing."
After a brief reflection Nehemiah, replied: "I 's mighty
feared dat it 'll trow a col'ness ober de meetin', massa, but
I 'll do dc bes' I kin."
Nehemiah knew that he himself had never been able to
refrain from taking things which did not belong to him. And
then he had not saved up enough means to live on during the
summer without an occasional visit to his neighbor's orchard.
Besides, he did not think it a very great sin for a hungry
darkey to purloin little things to eat.
To attempt a reform on the subject of stealing was, under
these circumstances, a most hazardous undertaking, but he
had promised Mr. Terry that he would try, and he felt that he
could not afford to deceive Mr. Terry. Accordingly, when he
had begun his services, he gave his first public lecture on theft.
The discourse was as follows:
"My text, brudern and sistern, will be found in de fus'
chapter ob Genesis, 'De fall ob Adam! Now, my brudern,
you know dat in de beginnin' ob de worl' de Lord make Adam
an' Ebe, an' He sot dem in de Garden ob Eden, an' tole dem
to eat all de apples 'ceptin' dem in de middle ob de awcha'd-
dem His winter apples.
"One day de Lord go out visitin'. De debbil cum along.
He dress himself in de skin ob de snake, an' he find Ebe an'
tole her, 'Ebe, why fer you don't eat de apples in de middle ob
de awcha'd?' Ebe say, 'Dem de Lord's winter apples.' But
de debbil say, 'I tole you fore to eat dem, 'cause dey 's de bes'
apples in de awcha'd.' So Ebe eat de apples an' gib Adam a
bite, an' de debbil go away.
"By'n-by de Lord come home, an' He miss de winter
apples, an' He call: 'Adaml You, Adaml' Adam he lay
low, so de Lord call again: 'You, Adaml' Adam say:
'Heah, Lord.' An' de Lord say: 'Who stole de winter ap-
ples?' Adam tole him he dunno-llbe, he 'spect. So de
Lord call: 'Ebel' Ebe, she lay low. De Lord call again:
'You, Ebel' Ebe say: 'Heah, Lord! De Lord say: 'Who
stole de winter apples?' Ebe tole Him she dunno--Adam,
she 'spect. So de Lord cotch 'em bot? an' He trow dem ober
de fence, an' He tole 'emi 'Go wu'k for yo' libin'.'
"Now, brudern, de pint I 's gwine to make is dis: De
Lord am watchin' you, an' ef you don't obey His command
'bout stealin', He 's gwine to cotch you an' trow you outen'
As his last words died away into silence his congregation
looked wonderingly at each other-amazed that one of their
color should choose such a subject as that of the sermon to
which they had just listened.
A few weeks after the close of these services Nehemiah
found himself in very destitute circumstances. He was half
starved and had nothing to eat except a little dry bread, which
he had begged from the white people. He had no money with
which to buy supplies, and was not at all fond of working,
especially in the summer time.
One day as he was plodding his way along the little
winding path which led across Mr. Brandon's held to his
lonely cabin he began muttering: "Lord! Lord! dis yere
nigger gwine to starbe to death, hain't had a bite to eat dis
day." At this juncture the old darkey suddenly realized that
he was in Mr. Brandon's melon-patch and was surrounded by
a great many large ripe melons. He continued: "I know
Mr. Brandon don't care for dis poor old nigger habin' a Water-
milyang but, Lord, what will dem niggers say? I 'll des fump
dis one to see ef it 'll do." W'hen he reached the melon he
almost unconsciously dropped to his knees, broke open the
melon, and began eating.
A moment later he was hailed by a half-dozen of the same
negroes who only a few weeks before had been so much
startled by his words. One of them said: "VVhat you doin'
here, nigger?" The old culprit raised his eyes, clasped his
hands, and piously pleaded: "Good Lord! dis yere darkey
can't go nowhar to pray any mo' widout bein' 'sturbed."
The negroes were deceived for a moment, but they soon
detected the fraud, and one of them rebuked him thus: "Ne-
hemiah, you 's de meanest nigger in dis land. You 's a
thief an' a liar, too."
"Brudern, I ain't doin' nuflin'."
"Shut dat black mouth, you lyi11' nigger! Didn't I seed
you eat dat watermilyan?"
"I 'spects to pay Mr. Brandon fore dat."
"Yes, pay nufiini You 's no preacher. We 's gwine to
turn you outen' our chu'cl1."
After this Nehemiah strolled slowly down the path to-
wards his hut, wondering what the results of his action would
be and how he could ever redeem himself.
Next day the darkeys met at the church for the purpose
of denying him membership in their body. After much dis-
cussion, Nehemiah was asked if he had any excuse to offer for
his action, when he said: "Brurlern, I 's mighty sorry to be
1, , , xt--r,:.
humiliated dis way, but I hopes dat you 'll be satisfied when
I gib de explanation. It 's dis way: I seed dese gen'leman
comin', an' pull dat watermilyan to show dem how ugly it look
for a nigger to steal.'l
His explanation was accepted, and his brethren have
never since been known to pilfer.

The Things You I-ladn't Qrter Do.
Good people of the ,Normal School,
I 've this to say to you:
'Tis what I found in our new rules
You hadn't orter do.
On Sunday night if you should call,
Remember, half-past ten
Is time that you should find your hat
If you would come again.
And if a-driving you should go
And it should be at night,
You 'cl best not let it be found out--
'Twould get you in a plight.
For if they proved that this was true,
The consequence we know
'Twould be severe, for 'tis a time
You hadn't orter go.
The telephone 's for family use,
And you must have consent
Before you talk across the wire,
And on bus'ness then be bent.
Then all these rules you must obey,
Or you will e'er regret
You didn't when they say to you:
"You 've no 'eertifiketf "
It falls my lot to tell to you,
Although it makes nie sad,
The things you hadn't orter tlO'-f--
What makes you all so bad?
In great. big crowds you will collect
Out in the Normal Hall,
And Profs. they eye you through theii
You won't disperse at all.
You hadn't orter to amuse
Vourselves at the expense
Of classes that you do confuse
Vlfhen they need all their sense.
You hadn't orter to consent
To break a single rule
As given by the President
Of this here Normal School.
You hadn't orter stndyg sleep
The night before exams.,
For those no facts can e'er repeat
Who spend the night in eranis.
You hadn't orter take it hard,
And of the Profs. complain,
If a poor grade is on your card--W
just love them all the sgnne.

A Romance ofthe Texas Wild.
HERE from her bed of skins Opelika gazed
through an opening in the lodge upon the
harvest moon, hanging round and red
above the hill-tops. VVith trembling
hands she pushed the black braids from
her throbbing brow. In her veins ran
the fever-fire that had set at defiance all
the skill of Alikchi. Bravely he had
fought with this unseen enemy, untiringly struggling to win
her back from the evil spirits that build the fever-fires in mort.al
veins. But skill and zeal were alike unavailing. Day by day,
week by week, the unequal battle had gone on, and each day
scored a victory for the enemy.
. On the morrow the last stand was to be made. Alikchi.
having exhausted his knowledge of the virtues known in
Nature's pharmacy, had ordered the Transplchifah dance.
Throughout the tribe the messenger hastened, summoning the
friends of the broken lily to this, the dance of life or death. By
dawn they would begin coming in by twos and threes and make
ready with song and dance, with weird chanting and the din
of drums and cymbals, to frighten away the evil spirits that
tormented her. But to-night all is peace, she may be un-
disturbed, gazing on the sun of the night and re-living the
short span that had changed the laughing Indian maiden into
the woman who must needs suffer and endure. As she gazed
the scene changed--a trick common to fevered imagination-
twelve moons were obliterated, and, as care-free as the wild
things of the forest, she danced laughingly beneath the pines,
frolicking with her sisters. Growing tired at length, she
slipped away and wandered aimlessly still deeper into the
forest, crooning softly to herself. The flutter of wings and the
shrill cry of a bird brought her to a sudden halt. Glancing
upward, far above she beheld a great white bird, which in some
mysterious manner had become entangled in the swaying
branches. Moved with admiration for the beautiful captive,
and curious to find the peculiar manner in which it was fas-
tened, she loosened her moccasins and with surprising nim-
bleness climbed the tree. The great bird lay panting on the
end of the highest branch, seemingly exhausted. Now, that
she might better see it, she was bred with the ambition to
capture and carry it back to the tepee in triumph. Stealthily
one little brown hand reached forward, but at that moment
there was a shrill cry, a mighty fluttering of wings, and the
great bird, frightened at the approach of so unfamiliar an
enemy, made one last brave effort and wrenched itself loose
from the fibers which held it captive. This was so unexpected
that her foot slipped, and she could feel the green earth below
her rising swiftly, then darkness settled. Consciousness re-
turned with a knowledge that liquid fire was being poured
down her throat. Opening her eyes, she gazed with the
startled intentness of wild things into the face of a white man.
Seeing by the fear in her face that she had fully regained con-
sciousness, he took the flask from her lips and laid her gently
down. The moment his hand was removed from her head
she sprang up, intent on flightg but scarcely had she gained her
feet when, with a groan, she fell, face downward. The look of
pity on the n1an's face deepened. Reaching over, he picked
her up as one would a little child, and started through the
forest to the Indian camp down by the river. The great chief,
Assachile, advanced with the stateliness of a king to meet the
stranger who entered the camp bearing the apparently lifeless
body of Opelika, the Indian maiden. With grave courtesy he
listened to the stranger's explanation of how he had found her
insensible in the forest. He stood by quietly while the pale-
face cut away the beaded jacket and with skillful lingers found
and set the broken ribs.
Over and over again this scene revolved in Opelika's mind.
It had been only a year since the Fates had been unkind enough
to throw in her path this man whom she had learned to
love. Under his ministrations she had become much better,
and when she was free from the screaming demons that set her
brain on fire, he left, laughingly saying that he would return
some day. Opelika watched and talked with the wild things
about his return, imploring Kechumski's aid in bringing him
back: but every day was she disappointed, until, growing weary
from watching, her life seemed to decline with her spirits.

When the dance began at dawn, Alikchi, true to his charge,
took up his position within the lodge, and noted with some
satisfaction that the dull eye of the patient had grown bright.
Madder and madder whirled the dancers, until the hag that
presided over the pot announced that it was ready. Dancing
ceased 3 dancers and musicians partook of the feast. The eyes
of the maiden were fixed upon the moon instead of the dancers.
At a given signal they rushed to resume their places, but ere
the peace of the night could be shattered by the rattle of bells
and the music of the dancers, the Angel of Death laid his hands
over the aching ears of the girl, kissed to eternal slumber the
tired eyes, and, hand in hand, took the Indian maiden to the
land where dreams come true.

'Tis a place, and all around it each familiar
Reminiscences of school-days spent within these Normal walls.
Statelv walls that from the hillside overlook a pleasant groveg
Tennis courts, and walk to southward where at "offs" we

Many a morn along this very path that leads from yonder gate
Have I hurried with my stack of books at fully half-past eight.
Many a time on yonder rustic seat, in early fall or spring,
Have I sat and conned my lessons o'er and heard the jaybird
Then I dipt into the future far as human eye could reach,
And I saw myself a pedagogue just starting out to teach.

Oh, how sweet it is to be here !--just to gaze across the years,
See myself once more a school-girl with her petty doubts
How the many, many faces all come trooping back to me,
As I live the old days over in a sort of reverie!
Ah! my heart shall ever treasure-aye, whatever lot befalls-
All the memories that cluster 'round these dear old Normal

As, lost in reverie's fondest dream,
With longing, retrospective gaze
Fixed on the pale iire's iitful blaze,
I sit and fancy pictures rare

And while the embers slowly burn
My childhood's happy days return:
Sweet faces once again I know
That smile as in the long ago.
Thus floods of fondest hopes and fears

Forgotten is the day's dull task
As in the warmth I idly bask
And dream of sprites divinely fair,
Destined to phantom into airg
Bright scenes of F airyland pass through
The glowing coals in strange review.
But for the past why should I pine?
The future years I would divine.
Thou flickering firelight, tell me true,
Are they of bright or somber hue?
Shall sunshine bright o'erspread my way
Or must the darker shadows stay?
Will life's great struggles beat me down,
Or will Fate give to me the crown?
Or must I fall amid the strife
And forfeit all with this poor life?
Wouldst thou reveal the smiles and tears
That hidden mark the future years?
W. ARTHUR THURMAN.
DENTON, TEXAS, September 18, 1907.
DEAR OLD PAL,-At last I have arrived at this noted in-
stitution of learning, the North Texas Normal College, and,
after a whole day of sight-seeing-for it certainly can be
termed that--I can hardly wait to describe the various sights
to you. i
"Girls!,'--in all my short but useful life I never saw so
many. There are tall girls and small girls, slender girls and
stout girls, girls with black hair and girls with white hair-
in fact, the whole world seems to be bubbling over with girls.
Would I were a Shakespeare, that I might fittingly portray
them to you, but, as I am not, I shall try, in mine humble
way, to give you a brief sketch of the many types.
The first girl who attracted my attention, apart from the
general mass, was a little brunette. She was attired in a dress
which looked like a cross between an apron and a reception-
gown-those distinctly feminine creations which the girls at
home delight to wear and proclaim as having recently arrived
from the North. She advanced with a cautious air, never lifting
her eyes from the floor, and I, in my imagination, immediately
stamped her "Fresh." As I stood admiring this little piece of
humanity I heard a merry giggle behind me, and turning,
beheld type No. 2. She wore a simple white dress, which I
thought suited her exactly, and she was as pretty as a picture.
Her hair was chestnut brown and as kinky as Aunt Chloe's.
Her kissable lips were parted over her dainty white teeth, and
I really could not tell you what color her eyes were, for she
kept them squinted up like a Ching-ching's. I was compelled
to grab my heart to keep it from deserting me, and I live in
fear of having to put it in chains if perchance I should see her
again. Presently type No. 3 came under my worthy observa-
tion. Now, my dear boy, picture in your imagination one ol'
those super-intellectual beings who read Macaulay's Essays
for pastime and knows Webster's Unabridged Dictionary by
heart. She held her head high, and at equal intervals raised
her calm gray eyes upward, as if searching for some jewel
hidden away in those grim old walls. As she advanced I was
seized with a sudden desire to make my escape, and when I did
flee, I ran straight into the arms of type No. 4-and straight
out again Cnot without some assistance, howeverj. This fair
damsel possessed a wealth of glorious red hair. I should like
to enlighten you concerning its arrangement, but, not being
good at Chinese puzzles, must beg to be excused.
"Her eyes were as blue as the ocean,
And her cheeks were as red as a rose."
I-low 's that for poetry? and I have only been here a day, old
boy. I shudder when I think of what I shall be by next june.
But I am digressing from my subject. This fair miss assumed
an offended air and passed on, and poor I, unable to bear more,
took my leave.
And now, dear fellow, unite with me in a fervent prayer
for the rising young American who will come under the guidance
of these enterprising young women, for if he does not lose his
heart, he will certainly lose his mind.
Yours ever, JACK.
MARY LEE MATTHEWS.
.THE MORNING BELL.
ingle jangle, dingle dangleg hear the morning bell.
Dingle dangle, jingle jangleg Julius rings it well.
Early on a winter's morning, just before the dawn,
When old Morpheus has you--got you-yes, and goneg
When your bed feels like the divan ol' an Oriental king,
And your pillows--how enchanting !-then you hear that
How it echoes and re-echoes its insistent morning call! '
How you wish that it were tongueless, that it eouldn't ring
That some elf in playful humor, to the clapper holding tight,
Should repeat lor fun the story, l'Curlew shall not ring
F. P. BOWMAN
It Was Thus,
. HEN in the good old time, when the simple
life prevailed, the wood nymphs, fairies,
a.. and elves were still in full possession in
al l the forests and prairies of Texas. Now,
les!! QM when progress reached forward, civiliza-
inn if Qg tion encroached on their domain, and the
fairies went to regions which were not
disturbed by human beings. However,
in the broad expanse of Texas there was still room for the
fairies as well as for' men. What better home was there for
the sprites than the yucca tree? It was a well-fortified
castle, and yet its snowy flowers were beautiful enough to
please the most fastidious person.
When Texas kept growing famous, even the fairies caught
the contagion. The yucca sprites were filled with ambition.
They no longer held meetings simply for pleasure, but to de-
vise some plan by which the yucca might become known. It
was then known to the working class of people, but the sprites
wished it to be admired and loved by the intellectual circles.
They spoke with disgust of the prickly-pear cactus, with its
thorns and ungraceful branches, and yet they saw that that
same despised cactus was loved by every university man in
the Stnte, and why? It was merely because it had been
Written in a book and its ugly form was on the back of a book.
The yucca sprites determined to have their beloved tree in a
book. With its symmetrical form and shining swords, they
knew that it was more worthy of honor than the lowly cactus,
so in a short time a chosen band of yucca sprites journeyed to
a city in the North, which was becoming famous as a college
center. Immediately after their arrival the fairies knew that
the North Texas Normal was the point from which they wished
the fame of the yucca to go to all parts of the State.
Because of their skill in transferring thought, it was a
simple matter for the sprites to impress on the minds of those
in power that the name worthy of their love and worthy even
for their college annual was THE YUCCA. This name with
several others was submitted to the student-body for consid-
eration. The fairies, knowing that the majority of the students
were not acquainted with the yucca, and a.lso knowing that
they would not be able to visit each student during the night,
impressed upon the mind of each of the Faculty that it was his
duty to give a glowing description of this plant. This Faculty
was always noted for doing its duty, so each one, wishing to get
rid of his burden, put forth his most powerful effort to give the
best description possible. As soon as the sprites' thoughts
were transferred to the students, they readily adopted the
name "YUCCA" for their Annual, and the sprites returned to
their homes to tell the glad news-that the name of their tree
was to be written in a book.
MARY LEE BANDY.
A PEDAGOGICAL PROBLEM.
Miss Mollie Brown had been engaged to teach the Oak-
ville school. Miss Mollie was young, pretty, and enthusiastic.
She had not been a teacher many years-in fact, she had been
one of the graduating class of the Denton Normal School two
years before, and up to this time her work had, for the most
part, fallen along pleasant lines. She had never seen Oak-
ville, as her application and subsequent engagement had been
made by correspondence, so she knew nothing of the school
nor of the people until she arrived the Saturday before her
Oakville was a small village, and the greater number of
her pupils, she learned, would come from the surrounding
farms. She was favorably impressed with the School Board,
and soon secured a pleasant boarding-place, and though her
school, being ungraded, consisted of a miscellaneous assortment
of children of all sizes and ages, yet after the first day she felt
that everything pointed to a pleasant and profitable year's
The second morning when she arrived at the school-house
she found a woman awaiting her-a small woman, wearing a
very large hat that gave her the appearance of being top-heavy.
She had with her a small boy, who appeared at the first glance
to be about eight years old, but a closer observation showed
him to be older, for his face might have belonged to a boy of
twelve, though his body was so diminutive.
The woman came forward. "Miss Brown," she said, "I
am Mrs. Miller. I have brought you my little son." She
spoke with the air of one conferring a favor. "I did not bring
him yesterday, for I wished to avoid the confusion of the
opening day of school. Tommy is a delicate child, and any-
thing unusual makes him nervous. I have to be very care-
ful with him, Miss Brown. I want you to understand him.
T ommy's teachers in the past have not been as considerate of
him as I wished, and he has not done so well in school as he
should. The last teacher was so disagreeable I was forced to
take him out of school. She actually told me that Tommy
was bad and disturbed the school, and, Miss Brown, there
isn't a better child in the world t.han Tommy if he is understood
and properly managed, but he is so nervous I think it causes
him to do and say things that might be misconstrued if the
teacher did not understand him perfectly. It was very evident
that his last teacher did not understand him-she didn't like
children. I think she was too old to teach school any way. I
am glad you are young. I t.hink Tommy will like you. I don't
care to have him study hard, I think a child's health should be
considered before everything else."
This was all said with scarcely a pause and Tommy listening
with a shrewd look on his thin freckled little face. Miss Brown
grasped the situation at once, and divined that Tommy as he
appeared to his mother and Tommy in school were two dif-
ferent boys, and she had a misgiving that he might not be al-
together a harmonious element in her school. However, she
assured his mother that she would do everything possible for
Tonnny's welfare in school, and hoped there would be no
difficulty of any kind.
For a time everything went smoothly. Tommy was
placed in a class, but it was soon evident that his mother's
fears that his health might be injured by hard study were
groundless, for Tommy showed a strong aversion to study of
any kind, and all of Miss Brown's efforts to interest him in his
work were unsuccessful. But he was interested in the childreng
nothing that happened in the room escaped his notice, and
very soon, through his efforts, something was happening the
greater part of the time. In spite of everything Miss Brown
could do, he managed to keep the room in a constantly dis-
turbed state. He was not a favorite with the children, for he
never passed them without pulling their hair or annoying them
in some way. And Miss Brown soon discovered that he had
absolutely no regard for the truth. What to do with Tommy
was a problem.
Finally, one morning she had him remain in at recess, and
she talked to him, and tried to make him realize the trouble he
was making her and the children by his misbehavior, and the
harm he was doing himself. No one could have been sweet-
er or more patient than Miss Mollie, but it was all lost on
Tommy. All she could get from him was that he was nervous
and could not help doing as he did, and his mother did not
want him to study hard. That afternoon when he returned to
school he brought a note from his mother. It ran: "Dear
Bliss Brown,-'l'onimy tells me you kept him in at recess this
morning. VVhat had he done? I asked him, but the child
could not tell me. I do not think it is right to punish a child
without his knowing what he is punished for. I hope it will
not occur again. I cannot have Tommy lose his recesses, for
he is a delicate child and needs the fresh air."
That evening Miss Brown called on Mrs. Miller and ex-
plained what 'l'ommy's offense was, and she also made it clear
that he understood perfectly why he had lost his recess. Mrs.
Miller was sure there was a mistake, and she feared Miss Brown,
like the other teachers, did not understand Tommy.
After that Tommy was worse, if possible, than before.
He not only made trouble in the school, but everything that
occurred there he told to his mother with such variations as
added to its interestg these things she in turn told over the
neighborhood, and the most exaggerated accounts of trivial
school incidents reached Miss Mollie's ears. This state of af-
fairs continued for several months, and Miss Mollie began to
feel that life, from the view-point of a country teacher, was
hardly worth living when such people as Tommy and 'l'ommy's
mother had to be dealt With. A
At last, however, her difficulties were removed in rather a
sudden way. She had in her school-room a large old-fashioned
desk, open in front and closed on all the other sides. On the
days when Tommy was especially bad and prevented the
children near him from studying she had brought him up and
had him sit on the floor under her desk, where the children
, ea! it
could not see him. She had been doing this for some time,
and supposed 'l'ommy's mother knew it, but for some reason
he had not told hermhe probably rather enjoyed sitting under
the desk, at any rate, one morning, after he had spent a part
of it in this manner, he told his mother. She came imme-
diately to the school-house to see Miss Brown, so angry and
excited she could scarcely speak. "To think of treating a
delicate, nervous child in such a way-such a humiliation!
Only a very cruel IJCYSOII could think of doing such a thing!"
were some of the things she said.
Miss Brown stood calmly by until she stopped talking,
and then she told her that if she had quite finished, she advised
her to get 'l'ommy's books and take him home and keep him
there, where he could be properly understood and appreciated,
a public school was not the place for such a nervous and
Mrs. Miller took her advice, and for the remainder of the
term peace reigned in the Oakville school, and life once more
assumed the bright and joyous hue it had held for Miss Mollie
before the coming of Tommy.

An Apostrophe to Texas.
Ye Stars, that in your twinkling orbs have seen
Great empires rise and fall and pass away!
Thou Sun, that with thy shining shafts so keen
Hast rendered pleasant every harbored bay!
Thou Moon, that with thy mellow light serene
Lends rich enchantment to reposeful night!
Ye Southern Zephyrs, perfumed and marine,
That cheer with gentle kiss the heart aright!
Sing joyful praises to our land so free,
And tell to all oppressed by tyrant ban,
No happier land than Texas could there be
To make a home for man.
The Mistake of Hoo Lun.
Hoo Lun was homesick, there was no doubt about it.
Every evening his small black eyes followed the sun on its
westward journey until it had set far beyond the mountains
that lay between him and San Francisco. Then, after helping
the cook with the supper in stoical indifference, he would
throw himself on his hard bed behind the dining-room door
and cry himself to sleep. The dusk, the quietness, the awful
lonesomeness of space, the Nevada sun gazing down with al-
most intolerable heat on the ranch-house, were very different
from the surroundings of his father's laundry in Chinatown,
San Francisco. The cowboys of the ranch were jolly, good-
hearted fellows, but the cook, a testy Frenchman, was liked
by no one. Ever since .Hoo Lun had come to the ranch to
work as cook's helper or cookee a week before, this man had
made his life a terror. When the cowboys came in at noon
or night, they would joke with Hoo Lun and laugh at his
broken English, and he would laugh too 5 but when they joked
the cook, he would only give them surly glances and scowl at
Hoo Lun until he trembled in his wooden shoes. On this par-
ticular day, after the ranchmen had eaten their dinner and
joked the cook until he was almost ready to burst with anger,
they retired to the piazza to smoke before returning to work.
"Come on, Hoo Lun," said one of them, Han' talk to us.
'Y ou can help Pierre directly. Well, what particular mistake
have you made this morning?" he continued when Hoo Lun
was seated amongst them. "Old Pierre looks mad enough
to bite the horn off a steel-fork saddle to-day."
"Velly bad mistake," replied Hoo Lun. 'tBleakee glass,
put blaking powdee in wlong blead. Plierre mad."
"Poor booster!" said another. "I 'll bet Pierre rides him
high an' low when we 're gone."
"Never mind," said the first, "when Hoo Lun gets a little
bigger we 'll fire old Pierre, an' give him the job."
"Say, Jenimy,', said a man from the end of the porch,
rising into a sitting posture.
"Say what?" returned the foreman, blowing a wreath of
smoke out of his mouth.
"Did you know McLaughlin an' Risky Bill, the road-men
an' cattle-thieves, wus in these parts?"
'LNope," replied Jernmy. 'tl-low d' you know?"
"VV'y, I met Sheriff Barton an' a gang from Elko out
huntin' 'em this mornin'g says he 's sure to ketch 'emg says
they 'll have to show up somewhere fer grub soon. Right
smart reward out, too, I hear."
"VVell, they better not come here if they don't want Pierre
to bite their heads off," returned jemmy. "But come, boys,
git on yer willer-tails. We 've got a day's work before us
this evenin'." "Hey, Pierre!" he called to the cook, who ap-
peared scowling at the door, "you ornery French gentleman,
you, we 're goin' to Rock Bend to do some brandin' and won't
be in till late, so have supper fer us at about ten."
The cook gave a malignant grunt for answer, and the
cowboys rode away.
"You, Hoo Lun!" yelled Pierre, as soon as the men were
gone. "What you do? Come 'earl Wash these dishes
clean out! Lazy! shif'1ess! You make one meestake this
even' an' I will do you like a cow-like a beef cow!" and he
drew the back of the butcher-knife suggestively across his
Hoo Lun trembled and began to work with feverish haste.
He washed one panful of dishes and had started on the second
when Pierre stepped into the other room. Thinking that he
could do better with his pan down on a box, he started to set it
there, when his foot slippped and he fell sprawling. Dish-
water and dishes, some of them broken to fragments, covered
the floor. He sprang to his feet, but the cook was ahnost upon
him, brandishing the butcher-knife.
"You Chaney rascal !" he snarled. "This is one meestake
too much you have make! I will kill you!" As Hoo Lun
passed through the door he caught him by the queue and cut it
half in two. "Don' you never come back !" he screamed after
the fleeing Hoo Lun, "or I will kill you like one beef ! "
I-loo Lun ran until he was safely behind the stables, when,
seeing that he was not pursued, he fell panting to the ground
and tried to quiet his throbbing heart. He determined at once
to go back to Chinatown. There were no horses in the corral
gentle enough for him to ride, and, young as he was, he knew
that he could never walk the distance. There was only one
thing to do-wait for the returning ranchmen, when possibly
he could get one of them to take him home. With this idea in
view, he climbed into the loft of one ofthe shaekly stables, and,
after assuring himself that the cook was not coming, he mur-
mured to himself, "Velly bad mistake," lay down, and fell
When I-loo Lun awoke, it was dark. He sprang to his feet
and descended into the open air. Lights were shining from
the kitchen windows, and he heard voicesg so, thinking the n1en
had returned, he cautiously approached the door and looked in-
The sight that he saw there caused him to slink back into the
shadow in dismay. Firmly bound with a lariat in a chair by
the window sat Pierre, while two grimy, bearded men in Slouch
hats and high boots were sitting at the table gorging themselves
on his supper. Close at each man's hand lay a well-worn
.44 Colt's pistol.
"Whut er we goin' to do with the cook, Bill?" asked one
of the men, as he put a huge piece of steak into his mouth.
"Don' know, Mack," returned the other. "He 'll tell if
we leave 'im here, an' we can't take 'im along. Guess we 'll
have to set 'em up to 'im an' kiver 'im up somewheresf'
Pierre turned paler, if possible, and almost fell off his chair.
"See here, Frinchy," said the one addressed as Mack,
turning a threatening gaze on Pierre, "when er the boys
"Oh, immediate!" gasped Pierre, with a flicker of hope in
"You lie!" roared Bill. "VVhut did I see 'em over at
Rock Bend not more 'an two hours ago, an' them not more 'an
half through brandin' yet, fer?"
"You better be kinder truthful, Frinchy," said Mack, "er
,we '11 fix you so you won't hold water an' it froze. You know
they ain't comin' home before midnight, so just tell us where
they keep their whisk. We ain't had none since we left Elko.
Come, where is it?" and he arose and approached Pierre, who
could only manage to gasp out "Dug-out," and motion toward
the storm-cellar at the back of the house.
"All right, Bill," said Mack. "You stay here an' I 'll try
an' see if I can find the hot water. Frinchy 's too scared to
show me anything." So saying, hc slipped his revolver into
its holster, walked to the door, and stepped out.
Meanwhile I-loo Lun, who had rightly decided that these
were the robbers about whom he had heard at noon, was about
to turn and run away again, when the sight of Pierre's distress
appealed to his boyish heart. Then came the thought of what
the boys would do if these men killed Pierre, they would have
no cook and would, in his imagination, starve to death. He
must either free Pierre or manage to capture the outlaws.
With the latter end in view, he slipped around to the front of
the house and turned their horses loose. With the aid of a
few stones, he sent them off toward the corralg then hurrying
back, he came around the corner just as Mack stepped out of
the door. He shrank back into the shadow, and Mack passed
him and went on toward the dug-out. Mack approached the
cellar, and after fumbling with the lock a few minutes, he got the
door open, and, lighting a match, walked in. N o sooner had he
done so than Hoo Lun ran and closed the door and locked it
fast, then he ran back to the kitchen window where Pierre was
sitting, sprang lightly upon the sill, and with his knife cut the
cords that bound him.
As soon as Bill heard the noise without-for his com-
rade had begun shouting and shooting through the cellar door
-he sprang to his feet and ran to the door. As he turned be-
fore leaving he saw Hoo Lun cutting Pierre!s bonds, and, with
an oath, he exclaimed, "I 'll git you Frinchy, if it 's my last
shot!" raised his pistol, and fired.
Pierre sprang back, and Hoo Lun fell with the blood run-
ning from his side. Pierre picked him up as tenderly as he
could in his own fright, and as he did so Hoo Lun murmured:
"It was velly bad mistake, Plierre."
Meanwhile Bill ran rapidly toward the cellar. A bullet
from his enraged partnerls gun tore through the door and
grazed his cheek. "Keep still, Mack," he growled, "I'n1
tryin' to git you out." He fumbled vainly with the lock a few
minutes, and then jumped on the door with all his might. It
would not give. "just wait a minute, Mack," he called, "till
I git a' ax." He ran to the wood-pile and picked up the ax.
As he did so he heard the sound of galloping hoofs and the
voices of the returning cattlemen. He saw at once that he
could not save his partner, and so ran to where he had left his
horse, in order that he might escape himself. It was gone.
With an oath, he ran toward the corral, but it was too late,
The cowboys, who had heard the shooting from a distance and
surmised at once the state of affairs, were upon him. After a
few wild shots, he was captured and taken to the house, where
Pierre related to them as accurately as possible in his excited
state, the events that had occurred.
"Poor little kid !" said jemmy, the foreman, "is he hurt
much? Here, let me have 'im an' see. Good thing we decided
to leave our brandin' till mornin' an' come home, or them
gallowsatrimmin's would probably have doped both of you."
UNO! no!" cried Pierre, with tears in his eyes. f'Me, I
will care for him. He make one beeg meestake to save my
life. Me, what deserve to he kill. I will give him up never!"
After ascertaining that Hoo Lun was not fatally injured,
the men went to the cellar, and, after a great deal of trouble,
succeeded in getting the other desperado out.

Was dancing with Jennie, of "Rancha Mesquite." -

Extract From a Normal Note Book.
A student's note-book was found in the cloak-room a few
days ago, and as it contains some information unique in its
way, hoping to aid some struggling aspirant for a "pass," I
will give a few extracts:
"Narration is an account of events and takes the direction
from which the greater force is applied. We see this action
begin, we watch it run its course, and come to a conclusion-
writing stories is no easy task. ,
"Two triangles are equal when they have three angles of
one equal respectfully to three angles of the otherg when they
have two sides of one equal to the two homologous sides of the
other. Clntuitive knowledge.j Miss Moore says that intuit-
ive knowledge is pretty nearly always correct.
"The first fishes appeared during the Paleozoic era in the
age of invertebrates, and were called teleosts-at least, those
were the first that I remember. Q
"A percept is a mental picture of Dr. Bruce giving all of
junior Four a permanent certificate for six years. An illusion
is just the reverse of a percept.
"The primary law of association states the general rule
which girls should obey in selecting gentlemen associates
The secondary law of association states the specific rule which
designing mamas would have their daughters obey in selecting
young gentlemen associates, and why one should come in
preference to another.
"The battle' of Thermopylae was fought just as soon as the

The Legend ofthe Yucca.
Long time ago, before this country was a State, and when
there were few white people here and many wild Indians, there
came to the southwestern part of this State a band of good men
called Franciscan monks. The Indians had-no schools and
knew how to do little work, except to hunt. These devout
monks, with the aid of the converted Indians, built a Mission,
which they called "The Yucca."
Many Indians were converted and were called to worship
by the ringing of the bells which the monks had brought with
them. These bells gave forth beautiful mellow tones, and it
was believed that in their making large quantities of silver
and some gold had been mixed with the copper and alloy,
and this accounted for their richness of tone. This rumor
reached the ears of a band of marauders, and they determined
to secure the bells and melt them, that they might secure the
metals contained therein. So they laid their plans, and were
to attempt the assault before dawn one morning, but when
they awoke, their horses were gone and they did not lind them
until noon. The next attempt was made about a week later,
but the men at the Mission, having learned their plans from a
friendly guide, were able to defeat them. The third time they
came with a band of lierce Indians, who had not been in-
fluenced by the teachings of the monks. The men within the
Mission fought bravely. They used bayonets, on which were
long spears, but, despite their bravery and skill, all were killed.
The murderers and robbers then tried to lind the bells, but the
stairway that led to the tower was entered by a secret door,
and since it was by that time growing very dark, they gave up
the search, to return again. Upon their return, in the place of
the Mission there stood a tall green plant. The bayonets had
been changed into spears to guard the bells, which had become
a cluster of beautiful creamy blossoms, and is still called

A BROKEN RULE.
' 'Twelve o'clock! Twelve 0'clock!

This is too late for a

"Yet a-while, yet a-while,"
Answered the lad.

A SAD ACCIDENT.
On the night of the Seagle concert a young gentleman
prominent in Normal affairs was seen to make a sudden plunge
from the top of the front steps and roll gracefully down to the
bottom. The crowd surging by heard the young man's com-
panion ask sweetly: "Mr. Leggett, why do you roll down the
steps instead ,of walking down, as I do?"
Rising and looking about with a bewildered air, he an-
swered: "I don't know, but I will go and ask Prof. Borden."
Listen, my friends, and you shall hear
What we students do in our Freshman year.
There are outlines and note-books of all kinds' to keep,
And historical knowledge 1' rom volumes to seek.
Then, too, there is Latin we learn to translate,
And drawing-My goodness! I-Iow aches my poor pate!
The music and reading, they, too, require work,
LJ But what do wefcare? for no duty we shirk.
You may call us the "Freshies," but we 've got the "sand,
And if you should look all over this land,
You will, I am sure, Iind no better crowd
Than the dear Freshman Class ol' which we 're so proud.

Who thought that the Normal was "jolly."
She failed on exam.
And said, "What a sham!

There was a young man of Calais,
Who saw a soubrette at a plais.
Her beauty all llcd
When her make-up was shed,
And his idol proved nothing but clais.
There was a young man of the Normal,
Who tried when he came to be formal,
But returned to his father,
As he said he would rather
Do chores than the work of the Normal.
There was a young Freshman named Sandy,
Who thought he knew Latin quite "dandy" 5
But when l1e got "D"-
For that pesky young braggart named Sandy.

What is patience? A virtue practiced by pupils while

Editing an Annual is a nice thing. If we publish jokes,
people say we are rattle-brainedg if we do not, we are fossils.
If we publish original matter, they say we didn't give them
enough selectionsg if we give selections, they say we are too
lazy to write. If we copy a drawing, they say it 's done
poorly, if we do original drawing, it has no point at all. just

Viewing the western sky.

She was his new-found friend.
With wonder they gazed at the scene sublime
Vlfishing its glory might never end.

Turning enraptured to Meg.
Thrilled with the beauty, her soul replies:
"It 's just like a fine fried egg! "
