THE MANZANITA The Frost llpon my little window glass Tl1e frost has etched a thousand things, Designs of wonder that surpass The master works ol' fairy kings. Beneath a eloudless silver sky A wintry world with many charms, All wrapped in fleeey drifts, doth lie Asleep in VVinter's ehilly arms. l see a crystal castle there, With diamond domes and sparkling spires That point up high into the air, Like sentinels in jew'l'd attires. And silent imitations fair, Of Nature's beauties he had drawn, With dexterous skill and wondrous care, Retwixt the sunset and the dawn. Majestic oaks and pointed pines Created in a single night, And Howers, ferns, and trailing vines, Are clothed alike in raiment white. Alas! Great NViza1'd, oh, alas! The beauties, which thou left with me Have heen expunged from my small glass By one who is thine enemy. Ah! far away in Heaven's sky With glee the guilty golden Sun Doth like a truant kite sail high, In vain pursued, yea, never won. 0 sweet recalling Memory! VVithin n1y musing halls l'll store These visions dearly prized hy me, Till mine own Temple is no more. -LARS BENNETT, '17

10 THE MANZANTTA over the Window sill and drop to the ground three feet below, and she did this as softly as a cat might have done. Outside in the soft night air she breathed easier and with a glance at the moon and her star angels she started on a run. Down the quiet street she ran, past dark- ened houses and shops-on and on -straight toward the green field where the circus te11t was. Suddenly she stopped short. She had reached the place but the tent was down! VVhere were the booths -the horses-and the ticket sellers!! Several big black objects loomed up in the darkness ahead of her. These she soon saw to be loaded wagons. A11d then she saw a group of men who were rolling up the tents. The circus was moving already! It was a good thing she had come early. 4'Are you taking the circus a- way?" she questioned. The man approached, whirled around. 'tWhy, where on earth did you come from, chick? Sure, we're moving. NVhat's your business here, anyway?" he asked grutfly. "Oh! Why-l-I-where is Tiny Tad?" she managed to say between 0llEl'tl',9Y'll1g' teeth. 'tWhy, sure he's here. That,s him over there at that wagon tieing the boxes on. But what do you want with him? Gee, you're a queer duck, anyway." And he laughed a coarse, harsh laugh. Azalia looked in the direction in- dicated but she saw 110 little clown, clad in a red and white suit. Slow- ly she walked over toward the wagons. A number of men were working herefwhich one did that man say? That small one, there? VVell, that surely was not Tiny Tad! Pondering the questions over in her confused mind she timidly ap- proached the small man. VVith fear in her breast she asked, t'Are- are you Tiny Tad? The figure turned around. Aza- lia stood and stared. A small dwarfed man stood facing her-no young, handsome, smiling face was his-but old-ugly and wrinkled. "Yes, l'm he," he announced with a snarl. "What'll you have, miss?" 'LOh! I-I-just wanted to-to know who you-who you+were- goodbyef, she stuttered and turned on her heel and started home on a run. On-on-and on she hurried through the dark, once she fell but she staggered on. Vtlith each step she mumbled, "Oh! Oh! and he was so handsome today! NVhy did l go? Why did I go'?,' lt seemed that she had been run- ning for miles when she finally reached home. Pale dawn was just showing in the East as she crawled back into the little bed. When she awoke, the sun was shining and her mother was smiling down at her. "Get up, Zaly. You are missing the best of the day. Sadie is wait- ing outside for you." Flinging her arms about her mother's neck, Azalia sobbed out, L'Oh! Mother, last night l forgot to kiss you good-night!',

12 THE MANZANITA Some Business Requisiies MR. G, O. MUNSON. inertial education that ,v seem the most 1ll1pO1taI1if "aim to the business man ap- pear t.l1e most trivial to the student. For instance, spelling is usually con- sidered something that must be 'ttaken" in order to procure a di- ploma of graduation. The business man, on the other hand, considers spelling one of the most important qualifications of his stenographers FTEN the features of com- ing!! ill - ,fx I I 1 . and clerks. True, he may not, him- self, be able to spell the ordinary words of business, but he is gener- ally able to detect a misspelled word in l1is letters and so demands accuracy on the part of his steno- grapher in that regard. And he is amply justified in requiring his letters to be free from errors in this respect as a carelessly written let- ter does not receive the careful con- sideration 'that the Well-written let- ter receives. Closely related to spelling is the use of words. Every stenographer should have a generous vocabulary. This is necessary for the proper ex- pression of what is desired to he communicated, bo-th in regard to meaning and to cuphony. It is of- ten impossible for the dictator to avoid repetition of certain words while framing a reply to a letter re- quiring considerable thought. That is left for the stenographer to rect- ify later in the preparation of the letter for the mail. Every steno- grapher should have a good diction- ary ill a convenient place, but that does not mean that it should be necessary to use it for the spelling or the meaning of the Words com- monly used in business phraseology. Another matter that is general- ly viewed very lightly by the stu- d611t is the ability to write iiuently and legibly. Any sort of penman- ship seems to answer for the require- ments of the student-until he seeks a position. Then he finds that one of the first qualifications demanded by the business man is good penmanship, written at a fair rate of speed. That is the reason Why so many of the advertisements for stenographers and other clerks call for replies in the handwriting of the applicant, and at the same time explains why so many of the applicants never receive a favorable reply. The business world, as a general rule, does not demand extensive lfnowledge in mathematics, but it does require intensive knowledge of the branches connected with any particular business. The ability of accurately use the four fundament- als is absolute. The student is very likely to consider that adding simple numbers, performing rapid calcula- tions in multiplication and division, estimating common percentages, and seeking to become proficient in short methods used in mathematical calculations is of very little practi- cal worth. But the business man who has to do with accounts will tell him that not only are they great time savers, but that they are also, effective cheeks against errors. In fact, there are numerous com- plaints from business men in all lines of business that too many of
