'-"fl-'I . , The Yucca 1916 Editor's Foreword IN PRlQs1CN'r1No this issue of our Annual, we have endeavored to include between its covers a record of the year's happenings, as Well as such matter as will give the general public an idea of the work we do in our College. VVe have labored earnestly to make this volume as attractive and representative as possibleg to present something that will, in after years, recall to the mind of the alumnus the scenes of his college life. XVith all its faults, this book represents much work and care, and its compilation and arrangement have been to us a real joy and pride. lf, at some time in the future, when you turn from your busy and fruitful life, you are made to feel better by turning the pages of the 1916 YUCCA and if you recall pleas- ant memories of your past college days at the North Texas State Normal College, we shall feel fully repaid for our efforts. lfVe hope that you will give credit to whatever merit you may find herein and will cover the defects with a mantle of charity. Our sincere thanks are extended to the many without whose cordial and unselfish co-operation this Annual could never have been edited. 6 ""l' -4. ,,,. ., , ,, , A V WY W Y YW 1 '1 lr .i.i - -,--- r""" 4, 4 t Q T- The Yucca 1916 T, jx Q E 41? 6' f lil 7.- I llumn mf Rl-:m':N'1's fm.

The position was so comfortable that I soon fell asleep and dreamed a dream. . It seemed that I was making a tour of the United States. VVhen I got off the train at New Orleans. imagine my surprise at meeting Mr. L. M. Cook. at that time the leading physician of New Orleans. It began to rain, and so I walked into a dry goods store to buy an umbrella. There I met Mr. C. M. McI'herson, who was proprietor of the store. From New Orleans I took a steamship to St. Louis. WVhi1e here I came upon a beautiful sign, on which were the familiar names, "Cook Sz Davis, Attorneys at Law." I hurried into the office, and sure enough, there were my old classmates. NV. S. Cook and V. G. Davis. I went from St. Louis to Chicago. On the train I met R. M. McElya, who was chief cook for the International K Great Northern Rail- way Company. It was in this town. too, that I accidentally met a beautiful young lady who said she was the wife of V. T. Adrian and her husband was the principal of the Manual Training Department of the Central Ward School. While in Philadelphia, I met DI. I.. Bower, leader of the Grand Har monie Orchestra. In New York I ran across C. VV. Crockett in a large touring car. He said he was proprietor of the Crockett Garage on Broadway. Mr. Crockett invited me to take a ride with him in the country, and I was indeed delighted. W'hile in the country we came upon a one-teacher school, where R. L. Yarbrough was teaching. A few days later I walked into the Senate Chamber at Washington. I found the Speaker of the House to be Mr. C. C. NVhite. From VVashington I took a trans-continental car to San Francisco. On the train I met Miss Ruthelle Elliott, who had become a great suffra- gette leader and was on her way to Texas to take part in the work there. In San Francisco, I came upon Mr. C. I.. XVilkinson, who told me he was to leave the next day as foreign missionary to India. I was awakened from my pleasant dream by the ringing of the curfew. I was very sorry, but was also glad to get back to the dear old N. T. S. N. C. 105 VL Bl OI ffl The Yucca 1916 Tru' Row: I... M, Cook. XVilliZlI'l1 Hrune. Y. 'l'. .'Xlll'iZlI'I, il. I.. Bower. R. M.

Here, from the North and South and East, All plowing through the foamy yeast, Fast come the ships, with treasures bright, With cargoes rich, of maid and knight. This school comprises all the isle, l-'or entrance-nothing but a smile. Teachers are versed in every art, Ot' teaching youths to win the heart, Of shy coquettes. The president, Francisco-e'er on pleasure bent, Cares not for rules-no loud curfew Shall make his pupils fret and stew. Here naught is said of hard exams, No days of study, nights of crams. Of tinal tests they have no fear, Vacation lasts throughout the year. The secretary of our school, Miss Leonard-to be sure's no fool: Yet she, indeed, with thoughts of play, Forgets her work from day to day. In truth, the faculty as a whole, Is seeking that felicitous goal, Where pleasure only can be had: For there none ever dare be sad. There White's so happy that he's meek, And even Burden's forced to speak. And Magers with an orator's zest, Declares he'll win who works the least. Then Sllls is caused perforce to smile. Which gives new light to all the isle. Inspired by this, with one consent, The entire school, on pleasure bent, Starts for a picnic on the beach, Along the shell-strewn glimmering reach Of golden sand. Far in the West Pauses the Evening Star, to rest, Upon the green wave's misty crest, And smiles upon the truly blest. My song is sung-my harp is still, All things that must be, surely will. This school, indeed, shall be alive, For every member of Soph'more Five, The gibes of teachers shall survive, To found this school in '25. CLAUDE H.

T' The Yucca 1916 Class History of Freshman One September the fifteenth. nineteen hundred and lifteen, marks an epoch in the annals of The North Texas State Normal. Un that day there gathered from the four corners of the compass the best collection of raw, unsophisticated greenness that ever sought admission to the classic halls of this or any other institution of higher learning. Those who managed either to pass or to elude the entrance examinations. constitute this well known and worthily renowned 'lfreshman class. On October the seventh we met lirst as a class, and after electing officers. came out with a growing sense of our importance and a deeper appreciation of the grave responsibilities that devolve upon us. "l.iish," we were dubbed. But "XVhat's in a name?', lVho of them. let us ask, did more for the band than Fish Gains? As a class we pride ourselves not only upon athletic achievements, but upon our mental prowess as well. NVhile as yet none of us has developed into an intellectual whatnot, some have made themselves eminently conspicuous with members of the Faculty on account of undue exercise, one way or another, of the intricate mechanism of their fertile brains. Here our interesting history ends-for the time, at least-but we have lost no courage: we are always on the go. 'llhough just starting, we expect to write our names high on the pillar of fame. XVe might drop a helping hint to the classes that follow us, to consider well our example, for we intend to go on "still achieving, still pursuing"' the rules and maxims set forth by our worthy predecessors--'llhe Sophs.

'lf S. C.. having been drawn back by a longing to see once more the old familiar sights of my school days. The greatest change that had taken place was the erection, on the only vacant corner on the campus, of a new building for a Model Train-- ing School. XVhile walking around the campus, I chanced to come upon Kathleen Zumwalt. our class president. 'llo my surprise, she informed me that she was teacher of the second grade in the training school. XVhile I was talking to her, she told me that Elaine Porter and Murial Allgood were teachers in the ward schools of Denton. l-laving spent three days at the College, I resumed my journey to Austin. While at that place, I listened to a forceful lecture on woman suffrage, given by Miss lVilliams. 'llhis was not a surprise for me, as I had often heard Viola express her opinion about this matter. WVhile I was talking to Miss W'i1liams, she told me that I. V. Taylor, Genevieve Garnett, and Alma l-lolt were married. I left this place for Groesbeck. There 1 found Betty NVard and Irene Brooks teaching in the Groesbeck I-ligh School. Having come so near, I thought I would spend a few days with home folks. Imagine my surprise when Myrtle C. Carradine, my beloved roommate, blushi-ugly asked me to be best maid at her wedding. I could not be at home long, and so l was denied the pleasure. After learning that a well known former student of the Normal was to be the lucky man, I departed, knowing that all would be well. lVhile in llarrison County, I heard that Nellie Richardson, after having taught a year, had drifted out on the sea of matrimony. I went to see her and, while talking with her, learned that Elmo Reed, her chum and companion during normal days, had also married. lfrom this place l came back to Dallas and thence to Mesquite, where 1 found Ruby Mcl'herson principal of the one-teacher school. She told me she had "got her dip" and was doing well linancially. She seemed to know all about the members of olr old class of 1916, for she told me "the German Twins" were in Germany, studying music. the johnson sisters were in Austin taking State work, and lvan Coleman, May llarkley and Clara llrann were in 'lf N. C. taking a special course in music and expression. Armour llrown, XVillie Day and Miss lfritts were teachers, while Mrytle lflerschi, Lola Nlay lloward and Mamie llendrix were successful housewives for three happy men. llaving tired of my tour of our broad State, l turned toward the little town of Otto, where dwelt my chum, Theo Unercash, the queen of the house of a former graduate of the normal. Here I knew I had a wel- come that would last, and an opportunity to think and talk of those of the Freshman Two Class of 1916. iKA'l'lC BROWN, Fresh. 2 126 0 ni Ol I0 The Yucca 1916 Freshman Three Manual Training 01" FICE RS l'rcsiclent--..--- --..-.-- ...... ..... l 2. l,.

Having been absent from my natixe land three years. l returned to America on the White Steamer. After the ship left the harbor and l saw that my luggage had been taken to my room. l went upon declc. 'llo my surprise, I met Mr. linox. a classmate in our lireslnnan year of 1916, at the Normal, who introduced me to his bride, and informed me that they had bee11 touring the Orient on their honeymoon. As we talked, our minds naturally went back to our old school days and to the other six members of our class. l. learned that Mr. Knox had become a renowned singer and had traveled through the most import- ant parts of the United States with Mr. .l,assiter, who had become a great evangelistg thus he had met the other members of the class from time to time. Q ,llc informed me that Mr. Storey and Mr. lleters had been gradu- ated from llarvard with high honors, and that Mr. Storey was now teaching Manual 'llraining in the Texas University and Mr. Peters was teaching Mathematics in the Southwestern University. Mr. Roberts had become a doctor and was in a medical university in England, where he was soon to be graduated and was later to have charge of the .l,ondon llospital. Mr. lloon had become a great ball player, had joined the New York Giants, and was "making good" there. Mr. XValker was teaching in one of the colleges of Oxford University. Of course 1 was delighted to hear of the great success and good fortune of each member of the old class. lVlAYMlC l4lCALTll. 128 V51 ul 0 on 471 The Yucca 1916 Freshman Four Language Ul9I'xlCl.fRS Prcsiclcnt .............. -- ...............

'l'he new aeroplane was of the modern type. having a cabin of sufficient capacity to hold a small sized family, but, as l am a confirmed old bachelor, I invited Dr. Sims and his wife, formerly Miss Ellis to accompany me. They lived in NVhitesboro, where he was the most important physician. All of his patients seemed to be in the best of health, so he accepted my invitation. VVC decided that our first tlight should be to XVacog however, we had hardly reached Dallas when my machine began to show signs of engine trouble. 'llhere was nothing to do but to stop for some minor repairs. All over the city we saw bill boards announcing the world's most famous soprano, Miss Florence Hunter, who was to make her first appearance in Grand Opera during the coming week. While strolling around, we noticed on a side street a large and excited crowd of people. As we drew nearer, whom should we see causing so much excitement? No one but Miss Key, who was delivering a "scorching" speech on the proposed amendments of the Dallas Charter. She closed her discourse by saying, "I beg of you all to think twice before casting your vote for our next mayor for Dallas, and then to cast it for me." As it was about time for the mechanics to have our machine in order again and we were making our way back, suddenly we saw a drunken man stagger in the path of a fast moving trolley car and fall to the pavement. At the same time a tall man rushed across to the track and snatched the drunken wretch clear of the rails, just in time to let the fast moving car pass. "Bravo!" exclaimed Dr. Sims: "I wonder who that handsome man could be. By jove! If it isn't 1. C. Maniref' Congratu- lations were soon in order, Mr. Manire said that he was doing well in the practice of law and that his brother, E., had secured the principalship of a one-teacher school near Fulton, Texas. After bidding Mr. Manire good-bye we left Dallas. Having no further trouble, we arrived in XVaco just about dinner time. Our thoughts were naturally upon some good cafe. Upon inquiring, we learned that .I-latley's Cafe was the best in town. lndeed it was. That wasn't all, either, George would take us out to his new home that he had recently completed. As we drove up to the gate of the beautiful grounds of the mansion, I saw and at once recognized Aletha Amis, now a stately matron and the wife of this happy man. MVC left them wishing us a merry time, and arrived in Galveston late in the afternoon of the same day. XVe immediately made our way to the wharves, for we heard that the big ship, which had been chartered by the New York Giants for a cruise around the world, would leave in an hour. We walked up just in time to see the famous pitcher, Mr. Owens, lead the champions on board. After two days ol' pleasure at the seashore. we decided to go home by way of Austin, for we wanted to see our old schoolmate. Claude Carter. Governor of the Lone Star State. 'He and his brother, Shelby. entertained us royally during our short visit at Austin. , U. lk.

Class History We can conceive of our college existing without the Sophomore, the Junior and the Senior, but the I:l'CSi'llllZlll is an essential. especially the class of Freshman Five for ,15-'l6. No one would attempt to compare any other Freshman class with this one, because it is the largest of its kind in the history of the school. It is large in many ways. In the First place, its members are affected with a well developed case of enlargement of the upper extremity of their anatomyg but, being inlormecl that most of our predecessors have been so aftiicted, we are constrained to believe that this will prove neither serious nor detrimental to our progress and our longevity. In the second place, we are large ill achievements. NVe have been represented in all the atheltics of the school, from football to baseball, and we claim. with pride, one of the best basketball players, not only in the Normal, but also in Texas. In our ranks are many literary geniuses, to say nothing ol' orators and debators of no mean ability. INC are also distinguished by the intelligence ol the girls and the beauty of the boys. In the third place, we are large in numbers. Yet every one is very congenial and is happily looking forward to catch a glimpse of himself in the important role of Sophomore, NVQ genuinely hope you will follow us there. so that you may'read the second installment of our history, which will be published in the next volume of the Yuccix. 1 y 4 - XV.

This was the realization ol the long cherished dream to be big enough to go away to college, although during the first few days there were a few who had a battle to light to keep the tears back and to learn not to call lor nlVl2ll'l111lll.H Yale advanced rapidly, and before the lirst term was up, we were well acquainted and prided ourselves on being one of the largest classes in school, On the thirteenth of last September, when we lirst entered the No1'mal, we did not know much about the doings oi real college students, but again we showed our ability to learn, and before many days we could do almost anything that we were called upon to do. XVC have learned all the rules, and obey them: that is, we have never been called to visit the Discipline Committee-Oh, horrors!! Wfe have learned to sit up in Chapel with an intelligent look ou our faces, even if things are a little vague. 'Doubtless the future will lead some of us over prosperous paths and even up the VVhite llouse steps. Oh, no, we are not suffragists, but we mean, perhaps one of us will be lucky enough to be the President's wife. Others may lead the more settled life of the country school teacher. llut, wherever we may go, we will always look back on these past days of College life as the most pleasant of all, and join in the glad refrain of: "School days. dear old golden rule days." .lo'1rNNili 'll.fxvLoR, Fresh. 6 iss W I I The Yucca 1916 Top Row: Josie Bell, Eva Hul'l'zxher, Alma Howe, Vera Hemphill, Olivia Pickle Pearl Bryant.

On raising my eyes, I found the person to be Alta Cole. She told me she had tinished her course in the Normal in 1920 and had since been teaching in the I-ligh School of Houston, and was now on her way to North Dakota to visit. After arriving at Denton, I met Fred Gaines, who had been in school here ever since I left in 1916 and was only in the junior class. I asked him what was his trouble, and this was his reply. "VVell, just can't get otli English 1 and 2 under Miss Blantong and besides I have been so busy going with the girls, I haven't had time to study." I-Ie also told me that Lizzie Kate Lovelace graduated in 1919, and now belongs to the Red Socks, a famous girls' basket ball team of New York, which was touring the lrVest. As I walked into Miss Atwell's room, I found Maude Reeves. She had finished at the Normal and also the State University, with high honors, and was preparing to teach English in the High School of Fort IVortli. She said she had visited Frances Foreacre recently. After she told me where Frances was, I went out to see her, and found that she lived all alone in a pretty little bungalow, covered with Flowers. I-Ter main fad seemed to be to have plenty of pets. After my stay in Denton, I decided to make a visit to Galveston. As the train stopped at a small station, T looked out the window and saw two women sitting in a little hack, with a big white umbrella over it. I thought I recognized the red hair of one of them, and, upon seeing their faces, I knew it was Mae Nance and Mary Snow. They said they were trying to make housework easier for the women. 'llhey were peddling mops, vacuum cleaners, washing machines and bath tubs. Wfhen I got to Austin, I missed my train, and while waiting here, I went to the capitol. As I was going up the steps. I met VV. L. Andrews, dressed in a high topped hat and a frock coat. I-Ie was representing his home countv in the Senate. He told me that Edith VVindsor's husband was Speaker of the House: so T went in and met him. He took me out to see Edith. They lived in a beautiful home and entertained me royally. I learned while here that Ethel Bennett was in Chicago University. 1 now went on my way to Galveston and as it was Sunday when I got there. I went to church. To my surprise, C. I. Rogers was the preacher. T-Te had been pastor here for two years. From Galveston I boarded a steamer for New Orleans and was sur- prised to see Eva Rita Mills on board. She had been to Paris studying art. and had been very successful. but was back in .America on a visit Eva Rita and I snent several days together in New Orleans. We had many pleasant talks of the year 1016 which we spent in the North Texas State Normal. Zona Lim COOPER, Fresh. 7 136 IT!

However, even though such progress has already been made, neither organization has yet realized the fullness of its expectations in ways of usefulness. Each association has conducted membership campaigns: has sent dele- gates to the State Convention: has organized Mission Study Classesg and. at some time during the year, has been visited by both State and National officials. Besides regular weekly meetings, one of the chief features of the worlc done by the Y. M. C. A. has been the evangelistic campaigns held at some convenient time during the regular session. llowever, the association this year also entertained the men of the college with a social, the first of its kind in the history of the school. A This year the Y. NV. C. has celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the organization in the United States with a jubilee programg has contrib- uted to the support of the Y. XV. C. A. missionary in Chinag and has endeared itself to the hearts of the faculty and the student body by raising one thousand dollars with which to employ a student secretary for the girls. Such a secretary will greatly strengthen the efforts now being made to attain the highest possible social and moral standards, and will also mean much in the development of religious life among the students. The membership of the two organizations totals about three hundred and seventy-tive persons, two hundred of whom are members of the Y. XV. C. A. 'llhesc organizations purpose to unite our men and women in loyalty to the Great Teacher, and to lead them to accept Him as their personal Friend and Saviorg to build them up in the knowledge of His tC2lClllllgQ and to associate them with the students of the world for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. 162 on ug on 'il -- The Yucca 1916 The Young Men's Christian Association R.

'l' never would carry itll umbrella when l was a kid. f thought it was 'sissy'D." Three days later lX'lr. Cordon got a letter from jack, telling of his room-mate, his studies, etc., but mostly begging him to 1'econsider his decision about fraternities. "VVhy, Dadfl Mr. Gordon read. "some of the nicest boys I've met belong to fraternities and they're crazy for me to join. Can't T?" In ZIHSXVCI' to this Mr. Cordon sent the following emphatic telegram: "Don,t write another word about fraternities. Still stick to my 'first decision." Mr. Gordon went home that night highly elated, for he knew his son would not join a fraternity without his permission. Mrs. Gordon and Katherine. her daughte1', had always taken Iack's I3Z'll't in his arguments about fraternities, for fllflllyt Rex. flillie, and all the other boys Katherine had met belong to one fraternity or the other? And "Daddy knew they were perfectly lovely." A week passed and lVfr. Gordon was just congratulating himself on having a son who would obey his father's wishes so implicitity, when his secretary handed him a letter, addressed in his son's well-known hand, T-Tastily tearing open the envelope. he found this letter: College Station, Nov. 3, 1911. "Dear Dad: "fAfomesick? T bet no girl was ever so homesick as T am right now. That may sound 'sissyf but, Dad, Vve been 'dropped,' 'ostracized,' or anything you want to call it. As soon as the boys 'found out T couldn't go into any fraternities, I was immediately exiled and left out of all the bunches. 215 I7 I IU The Yucca 1916 "1 may pack up for home pretty soon, unless you could come down here and investigate matters. Can't you? l'd jolly well like to see you. and tl1Cl'C,S nothing' like being' right on the field and seeing for yourself what's up. "Say, Dad, my room-mate belongs to a dandy club, and he wants me to be a member. You don't object lo clubs, do you? XVhat do you say to 1ny going into that? "Guess llll see you at the end of this wcek, for if you don't come down here. l'm certainly going to leave for home. "Give my love to mother and Sis. "Remember, 'l'm expecting' you and don't fail. "Your son. "jACK." Mrs. Gordon read it that night and she began at once-"Now, lfenry. there is no excuse for you not going: You wouldn't let the boy have any fun and l don't wonder he's homesick. You owe it to him to go down and investigate things in general and fraternities in particular." "Dad, you must go," Katherine joined in. "Oh, there's no use making sucb a to-do about it! l had already decided to go anyhow." Mr. Gordon said, as he crossed his fingers behind his back. 'Two days later, Mr. Gordon's arm was being pumped up and down as lack almost shouted. "Dad, I knew you'd come! T'fow's mother and 'Kat'? Come on out of the car, liather. T want you to meet my room-mate, Dan Dix. All right, Dan, crank her up!" Mr. Gordon didn't get his breath for the next fifteen minutes. for Dan drove through the town about sixty miles per. "This car is our club's special property," -lack told his father. "Oh, 'l forgot to tell you l joined the club, XVC spin around in this a good deal. l'faven't been hned for speeding but four times this week!" "Is that all?" gasped Mr. Cordon. "For goodness sake. how far is it to the college?" "Oh, we passed the building some time ago. T thought you'd like to sec some of Dan's expert driving: Vfe are on our way to a little inn that our club patronizes exclusively. illere we are. Dan. bring us three 'Blue Ribbonsf will you ?" , "lack, you don't mean your club allows you to drink, and chase around in a car?" ' "W'hy, sure, Dad. lt's true the 'Frats' wouldn't stand for anything like that. but our club does. You don't object to clubs. you know. Dan, run cancel the order, then, and we'll take Dad up to our room." 216 lil nfl or lgj The Yucca 1916 "NVho are those boys going into that building, son?,' "Oh, those are the E. B. lf. 'Frat fellows going to Chapel 'llhe Dean found a case of 'Sehlitz' with the club's name on it in the pulpit the other day and since then we've been under lock and key-not even allowed to go to Chapel." Mr. Gordon was hurried into the dormitory and up a long flight of stairs, to a door marked "l3." jack threw open the door. 'lille air in the room was heavy with stale tobacco smoke and Mr. Cordon coughed. "Dan, sail up those windows. llerc, Till just chuck these things in the drawer. You see, Dad," explained lack, "a bunch of the club members were here till pretty late last night and we didn't have time to clean up this morning." "W7ere any of them fraternity men?" asked Mr. Gordon. "XVell, hardly. They were all attending the lecture last night. lfour of us pretended sickness and so spent a jolly night here." Things went on like this for about two days. Every day Mr. Gordon discovered new evils in the club to which his son belonged and failed absolutely to End anything wrong with any of the fraternities. He was sincerely sorry he had been so unreliably informed. XN7hat on earth did anybody mean by letting his son belong to a club and keeping him out of a fraternity? Mr. Gordon couldn't understand. At the end of the second day he called .lack to him and said, "Look here, jack, l'm tired of all this tomfoolery. T want you to send in your resignation to that club this very night and join the best fraternity you can. VVhy. they are ten times more benehcial to your health, intellect, and everything else, than this good-for-nothing club. Somebody must have gotten their words mixed when they were running down fraternities. I always did believe they were pretty good things, and now f know it. You be sure and join one tomorrow, and don't ever tell me I advised you to keep out of a fraternity. You understand ?" "Yes, Dad, and you can just bet Till join in a hurry, too." 'flhe next afternoon Dan and jack were carefully studying a sheet of paper with figures on it. "Let's see, jack was saying, "here's hve dollars for the automobile. Tfow much did you have to pay those fellows for walking across the campus into the Chapel? Who did you borrow that deck of cards from? Pete Smith? VV'ell, be sure and get'em out of our room. You certainly smoked up our room, all right.: and you carried out your part of the program simply dandy! Poor old Dad. ft's a shame to work him so, but he never would have let me join a fraternity if we hadn't pretended the members were regular Sunday School people." 217 lil LI 0 The Yucca 1916 -T To-Day QAlumni Poemj Let the yesterdays sleep. lfor today is thine own!

"Lemme ont! l,emme out!" She screamed the louder. Hut no one came near the door. At last she sank, almost exhausted. to the floor, sobbing' quietly. Soon her sobs lessened and she gradually became quiet. But her little brain was active. "Mamma hadn't orter locked me in this nasty old cellar. 1 never done nothin' 'cept wring them ehieken's necks off. I heard her say she wished Uncle llenry'd kill her some for dinner. lle ain't at home: so l done it in place o' him. 1 had a hard time doin' it.

"P'raps they's one under that great big old lump under the window." Her eyes grew blacker and rounder. "l 'spect he's a mean old brownie what'll git me if l rlon't git out o' here!" She looked around wildly for some means of escape. 'l'he sunlight poured in at the little window. Maybe she could climb out there. She approached it tremulously. She raised one foot to step on the lump of coal. "l"r'aps l'll make the brownie mad if I mash him, and he'll git me!" She shivered slightly. 'l'hen a happy thought struck her. "l'll step hard and smash him all to jelly." She set her foot flown with all her strength on the big lump and stood there for a moment. lsler heart pounded violently, and she held her breath. Suddenly, with a spring, she landed in the window and jumped out. Summoning all her courage. she cautiously peeped in the window. All was still. She had smashed the mean old brownie dead. 'llurning away. she thoughtfully brushed the coal dust from her dress. She must go somewhere where mamma could not see her. 220 Fil Ill The Yucca 1916 Hut where should it be? Still undecided, she cautiously crossed tl1e yard. and climbed over the lence. Hy this tin1e she had determined to go "clear oft where 111211111118 wouldn't IICVCI' lind l1er no more and 'nd be so sorry she locked her up." Shaking out l1er curls, sl1e darted oft down tl1e dusty road as last as her legs could carry her. She soon became tired. however, and slackened her pace. Still the sun streamed down on l1er bare head, and her feet grew weary and heavy. yet she trudged on. Hut suddenly all her troubles were forgotten in the discovery of a new object of interest. Sitting' on a stile nearby was a 1112111 whose clothes were greatly soiled and torn. 'l'hroug'h the l1oles i11 l1is hat locks of hair stuck out. Drawing 1lCZlI'Cl', she gazed curiously at l1i1n. From beneath all tl1e dirt Zlllll beard on his face, a pair of kind eyes shone. Advancing slowly, she stuck out her hand and said boldly, "Good eveninf sir. .l.,1TI awful glad to see you. X1Vhere do you live?,' "Nowhere in particular,,' was the reply, in somewhat gruil tones. "W'hy ain't you at home, milkin' the cows for Lizbeth Ann?', she inquired. A puzzled look stole over thc manls face. Drawing her 11ear hint, l1e asked gently, "XN'ho is Lizbeth Ann? XfVho do you think I am ?" "XV'y, ainlt you the 11ice old raggedy 111an lTlZlI111112l reads to me about? lle knocks green apples outer the tree for l1is children and n1ilks the cows for Lizbeth Ann. "l'le's a 11ice old raggedy 111a11. Ain't you him?" sl1e asked i11 disappointn1ent. Hastily wiping away a tear, the man replied, "Yes, 1,111 tl1e old raggedy man."

But l1is thoughts turned lar away, to a home of his own, where l1is wife a11d little daughter lived in poverty and want. Occasionally a tear rolled dow11 his cheek.

'llhe old man linished his tale and sat silently gazing into space. Suddenly little Mary jumped 'l.l'Ul11 his knee and looked arou11d. It was 2lll'llUSt dark. lfler niannna would wonder where sl1e was. She clasped the old I1l2l11'S llllllil in hers and said, piteously, "Uh, thank you, 221 IT1 171 The Yucca 1916 11ice raggedy man, but now won't you please take 111e home to my l11Z1l11IllZl.?,' She l3CQ'2ll1 to sob. 'l'he 1111111 11rose and. l1a11d i11 hand, they walked up the road together. "Have you got 21 little girl like 111e at home?" asked tl1e child, calmed again by l1er perfect conlidcnce i11 the raggedy 111811. "Yes, just abo11t your size." was tl1e broken reply.

Ilgl on I7l The Yucca 1916 A French Hop Emile stood in the door of the tumble-down barn near the bayou. fingering a worn out saddle girth. wondering whether it would stand one more using without having to be mended. At the sharp "put-put" of a motor boat, he looked up quickly, in time to see the boat, with a skiff trailing behind, skimming along the sunlit water. He saluted the man at the eiiine. who was a tall, unkempt fellow with a very dirty and vaguely unpleasant countenance, but received no reply. Emile shrugged his shoulders, with the thought: l'Mus' be huntin' a place to hide, if his business is as ugly as his face," and promptly forgot the matter. There was a sound of hoofbeats from the road on the other side and a slim youth galloped up to the barnyard gate, on a wiry little pony. and flung himself from the saddle with a merry "Bon jour, jolie, petite Emile!" W'ith a mocking glint in his eyes, Emile smiled back. "Ha, why such a hurry, Gaston? lt is not night yet and no wolves howl that 1 hearf, Gaston reddened at this reference to his well-known cowarclice in crossing the marsh prairie after dark, but hastened to say: "But it is to hurry. I have to make the engagement with your sistair for Eluse. You are not going to the danse tonight, is it?" "No, my saddle-you see. ls it not sorrow? And walk-no! I can not," replied Emile, with mock sadness. "But the petite Letrice? Her jolie white dress? Is it to be all for nothing that she await your coming?" protested Gaston, with wailing despair and a laughing twinkle. "For shame to spoil the dance for Letriee! To me she will say, 'Dance wit' you? XfVell, no, clubfoot, it was only las' week that you tear the yards and yards of lace from off my newest dress wit' your clumsy stumping. lla! I'll guess nol' To Eluse she will say, wit' head toss-'Dance? Stupid! Cannot you see that I am all breathing an' ver' tire'? But to Emile she bow wit' dimple an' say, 'Ah oui, Monsieur, this lovely music, is it not mos' grande? 'Tis all my pleasure, not yours,' and putting his hand over his heart, Gaston, with a grandiose sweep of his hat, bowed low to the grinning Emile. "Eef you want to see my sistair you will have to 'dance Jim Crowf for she's nearly to Legair's by this time," said Emile carelessly, as he turned to his saddle again. Gaston turned in dismay and saw a pink sunbonnet just disappearing over the top of a low hill in the road beyond. lVith a rush he mounted his pony and went flying after the vanishing sunbonnet to make the coveted engagement with Emile's "sistair." That night the old warehouse on the bayou was crowded with merry-- makers from a.ll over the little French settlement. 'llhe big, barnlike room 225 QI I0 on IU The Yucca 1916 had been converted into a ballroom by the industrious efforts of a few gallants, who never exerted themselves except for pleasure. 'lfhe floor was given a highly satisfactory waxing by a liberal sprinkling on of corn meal and candle shavings. Hcnches were placed around the sides of the room for the convenience ol' the grandfathcrs and mothers who did not care to dance. At one end hung a quilt, behind which were pallet beds for the sleepy babies, and here also hung the inevitable mirror for the use of the fair coquettes who needed comb or poudre. Emile entered the room with the smiling Letrice and joining Eluse and the black-eyed sister, Celevonee, in the chatting group, added his teasing wit and ready laughter to the general merriment. "Ah, Monsieur Legair an' where is the Madame? 'Foo busy! Ah, yes, it is to be busy to cut cane the entire day, as I saw her this morning. Perchance you lei' her still cutting. No? 'llhen wood, perhaps, for the morrow's dejeuner? No? Eef she be half so cutting in her stroke as you in your glance, hlessieur. it is a sharp blade she haf. Hello, Eluse, has not Gaston come yet? lt is time we should beging surely it is more than the howl of a wolf that would make him late now, for nex' to Anna, Gaston loves -the dansef, As Emile spoke. the sole musician of the occasion gave a few vigorous and warning pulls at the accordian which he held on his knees and the dance was on. Flickering shadows raced up and down the shining boards as the smoky lamps shivered in their brackets, keeping time to the slip and slide of joyous feet. XYith the grace of old-time courtiers, the men whi1'lcd their sparkling-eyed partners through the many mazes of the old time figures. llere glided a mother and father, tripping and heeling with the airy lightness of long practice in the dizzy turns of "Dance 'lim Crow." There, a young brother and sister clumsily stumped along, the latter punctuating every whirl with the tap-tap of a loose dancing pump that refused to stay on her tiny foot. Emile and Letrice were watched with glowing pride, by their mothers in the corner, as the lissoine figures, like feathers in the wind, swayed and skimmed in rythmic motion to the beat of the music. Babies clapped their chubby hands in glee at the wailing of the accordian as it spasmodically inhaled and exhaled in the nimble hands of the red-lippcd, dark haired boy near the door. lfaster and faster he pushed and pulled at the complaining instrument, madder and madder grew the pat of twinkling feet. Shriller and louder grew the tinkle of teasing laughter as the fun loving devotees of the dance answered the call of the wild. wierd melody. At last. with a gasp for- breath the perspiring musician stopped the cries of the "push-fiddle," the breathless crowd on the floor came to an 226 -f 1. C Wil TI Wi -pu The Yucca 1916 abrupt halt, and with racing blood and Hashing smiles gaily called out, "Saud bon oui!" "Emile, your toes are as light as your heart," laughed Eluse, as the chatter broke forth again, but Emile had walked to the door for a breath of air. At a loud ery from the outside, everybody turned with startled looks toward the door and for a moment nothing could be heard in the tense silence but the soft lap-lap of the water against the piling of the warehouse. Emile had disappeared. Eluse leaped to the door and out into the darkness, stumbling blindly as he did so over a body that lay a few feet from the steps. "Holy Mary !" he gasped. making the sign of the cross, f'W'hat is it?" The dancers had crowded about him and in the light of a lamp held by old Monsieur Croutin, they beheld the missing Gaston, with a long, livid mark across his upturned face. "VVho has done this?" cried M. Croutin, as he bent anxiously over Gaston and scanned the sinister wound. Hlfle has only friends and none others have been here tonight. l'Vhat does it mean?" , "Where is Emile?', asked one youth. "Emilei Respondez, Emile!" called Eluse out into the night, but no reply came and a murmur of dismay and suspicion passed through the white-faced group. - Anna knelt by the unconscious Gaston and with trembling hands made a pillow of her wraps and pushed it under the dark head. "Ah, Monsieur, what shall we do? How awful to be so far away from a doctor." As she took the limp hand of Gaston in her own, she exclaimed, "My ring! It is gone! Gaston was wearing it. Emile has done this, for yesterday it was that he ask for it 'from Gaston. 1s not Emile beset that he should so treat Gaston, when there is nothing but a paltry ring for gain? To think that he should prove so false an' then run, the coward!" 'fAh oui, petite lille, it is of a sadness to think it of Emile." replied Monsieur Croutin, as he chafed the hands and bathed the face of the unconscious boy. "l:'oor Gaston, it is fear that he cannot be move' yet for long but we mus' only stay wit' him and do the bes' we knowf' "jus' wait!" interrupted Letrice, with a fierce little sob, "it will be prove' that Emile did not so. 1 am dusgusting wit' you, Anna, that for any moment you believe it of him. He did not soln She ended with a stamp of her foot and a flash of black eyes that dried the tears. But Letrice was the only one loyal to the absent Emile. lflis erstwhile friends stood with hearts hot against him and spoke grimly of the swift punish-- ment that should be meted out to him at the Erst opportunity. In the meantime, Emile was in the boat he had found at the little wharf and was slipping swiftly along with the current, farther and farther 227 LQ: lil on V51 The Yucca 1916 away from thc scene of excitement. 'I'hcre was a star light retlected from the water and barely enabled him to avoid the ugly snags and out- standing cypress roots along the sides of the narrow stream. The shadows loomed black and gloomy among the trees on the bank, softened here and there to a velvety grayness by the drooping festoons of Spanish moss that hung over the water's edge. Iflere and there a fringed spider lily gleamed faintly white in the star glow from out the marsh reeds, and the stillness was unbroken save by the drip of the water from the sweeping oars, as Emile cautiously made his way along, peering into the shadows on every side and listening intently for any sound. At last, with a quick intake of breath, he stopped rowing and shifted around toward the right bank into a great d1'ift of shadows where he had sighted a faint gleam of light. lt was as he had expected. The gleam came from a lantern and he could now plainly see the outlined bulk of a man in its light. Keeping in the shadows he went up a few yards above the other boat, turned and came creeping silently back, cutting off escape from that direction. Drawing his revolver, the constant companion at every dance, he called out peremptorily, 'Yllands up, there!" lfVith a start and frightened exclamation, the figure grabbed for his gun in the bow of the boat, but a shot from the revolver brought forth a cry of pain and one arm dropped, limp and useless, the man finally falling in a crumpled heap to the bottom of the boat. Emile -quickly brought his craft alongside the other, took out the gun, and by the light of the lantern, lashed the two together by their dock chains. Then with his eyes still on the groaning man in the other boat, he took the way back upstream, with quick, light strokes. ' "Ah, Monsieur," said Emile, mockingly, "you nevair looked back to see if you were followed. lt was well that l saw you this morning when so courteously you answer my greeting, and again tonight when you take so quick farewell of my friend. Eef you haf keel him!" he gritted. "I will-" but the thought silenced him and he spoke no more to the prostrate figure until he reached the warehouse landing. llere he fastened his craft and with impatient jerks got his wounded and almost unconscious passenger out upon the bank. Then, half-support- ing the heavy form with one hand and holding the revolver against his side with the other, Emile came slowly into view of the group which was silently preparing to leave for home with Gaston, who had at last recovered sufficiently to sit up. "Mon Dieu!" shrieked Madame Croutin, with staring eyes. "It is Emile! VVhere is it, Emile, that you have been hidden, and what is it you have there? Oh, the fear we have had over the poor Gaston. Po' you, po' you," she moaned as the others gathered around, exclaiming and wondering. 228 O IT i IZ! 7- The Yucca 19 "lt is the great capture," explainecl lfmile. "I saw him run when he hit Gaston wit' the gun stock an' l nevair stop to see how harrl, but follow in the boat when he strike out up the lmayou. an' here it is, all an, every thing," he linishecl prouflly. Stepping' tothe other sifle of the captive, liluse, with a sly movement ran his hancl into the flirty coat pocket ancl clrew forth the missing ring. Unohservecl hy Emile. he gave the company a signilieant look, pleclging' eternal silence concerning' events, and slipped the ring' to Gaston.
