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.

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
'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
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

inertial education that

"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

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-
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
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
