12 TVESTFIELD NORMAL. 190.9 her had so grown that she had finally set up a restaurant, where the girls might have luncheons at any time. This, of course, served the girls to a very great extent after the new rule of "Get down to the dining room ten minutes after the gong, or go with- out your meal" was established. r And what had become of Tessie Tucker, the girl of so many whims and fancies '? Strange enough, she was in Paris, reveling in the art of painting, though never with extreme success, for al- though slie was now free to give vent to her sentiments with the brush, yet she had so many ideas constantly seeking for an out- let, that she did not have the time to see to the completion of any one, as she would have liked to in her own quaint way. As this was a well known trait in Tessie's character, we were not at all taken back with her fortune. Charlotte Richardson had invented a new soap which ex- celled Bon Ami, for from chemistry experiments, she had found the harm of adulteratious, and so eliminated them. Charlotte was always bright, so no wonder the soap had the quality of brightness. Marcella Carmody had gone XVest to Montana. where she was enjoying herself immensely, teaching the little rustics and play- ing the part of a Shy Anne in her life on a fine ranch which she now possessed. Then we learned that Ottilie Ludwig had become a. poetess shortly after finishing her course at Xvestfield Normal School. Ottilie was always fond of romance and spent many happy hours in 'tdreamland" surrounded by her countless fairies, but the strange fact about her now, was that she had suddenly turned to adventure and was always composing blood-curdling tales. Our attention was next called to Clara Harrington, who had done so well while at school that we all expected great things of her. But Clara had after a few years' teaching given it up as something too hard, for she never liked anything but easy work, so was content to remain at home in idleness, dreaming ever of "what might have been." ' And Dollie Allaire,-why Dollie was a 'demonstrator and "American, Ladies" were her specialty. Dollie was always good in this line, and her gestures and fantastic movements aroused great interest and admiration in all her audiences.

Alma Root had become a tiorist. taking roses as her specialty, and met with great success in their method of tzrining. This was not surprising' for Alma was always good at twining.- whether roses. baskets or hearts. After hearing Alma's fate. we were ready for that of an- other diminutive person in our class-none other than Abbie Johnson. Xvhile at school, she was always so near the sky that she became interested in the stars. so she was now an astronomer, and one who could be relied upon forthe truth of a statement, because what others saw through telescopes Abbie could perceive with her naked eye. Two more Springfield girls now claimed our attention- Beulah and Ruth Randall who were famous chemists. They had analyzed so many foods that they found the adulterations of all, and were having great success in making the public use only pure foods. A fact which added to their renown was that they used a picture of themselves as an advertisement of the effect of pure foods. One 1l12.911lbG1' of our class had especially profited by their labors. for Tessie Barry would never be now recognized as a large woman of innneasurable width and height who lived at last in peace and happiness in a distant land where she was never called to account for things she might but I1 ad not done. Monica Roche who. as everyone knows. has always dearly loved babies. was in France where she was at the head of a day nursery. Here she was ill her element. and was never content except when helping in this fine educational work of France. and she could ever be seen. surrounded by myriads of babes who were always happy in her presence. Now we found the whereabouts of Lena XVells. She had be- come a missionary among the natives of the Figi islands. where the men especially tlocked about her. for she won as many con- verts just through her beauty and her pleasant manner as through her preaching. Next the old man told us of Jessie Hildreth. She. as every- one knows. was always ready to help the girls in any way possi- ble and they had many a good feed at Jessie 's. The custom with

1.909 WESTFIELD NORJIAL. 13 Louise Bush had gone to Porto Rico for the purpose of teaching, but the life' and customs were too slow for her, Cas she was, as everyone knows, accustomed to swift actions,D so she be- came an auctioneer in a second-hand bookstore, where her quick speech and knowledge of books were important factors in bring- ing about her quick success. But Mary Cronin was a basket weaver. Think of it! First she wanted to become a. music teacher, then she took a course to become a school teacher, and she was now at the North Pole weav- ing ffpeaeh baskets" to protect the natives' heads from the ex- treme heat. Even at school, Mary showed her love for weaving When' she exclaimed, "If baskets are made in heaven. I refuse to go there," but evidently she was not looking forward to a very warm future, when she sought to acclimate herself to the North Pole where the fashions and seasons had preceded her. Olive Starkweather and Eva Moynihan had started a teach- ers' agency for the purpose of aiding the graduates of XVesttield Normal. They would accept other graduates but paid special at- tention to our girls and now many of them are dispersed through- out Becket. Chester, Feeding Hills, Tatam and NVoronoeo. thus sending throughout the universe the broad methods of teaching in which they excelled. Contrary to all our expectations, Ruth Taylor, having be- come so interested in mathematics while at NVesttield Xormal School was devoting her entire life to geometry, and had sue- ceeded in giving to the public another new proof for the theorem of Pathogoras. Her demonstration was so si111ple that it imme- diately displaced all those which heretofore had been used. The foundation for her proof as all must be interested to know-lay in the word "Guess" Dora Powers who was always ready to lend a helping hand whenever she could. had kept up the good work after putting school duties aside by forming a club known as the "Helpers" wherein information on every conceivable subject was easily and quickly obtained. There is no need to say that the fame of the club spread with great rapidity and finally embraced the whole nation. Miss Alice Johnston had founded an orphan asylum where she could tell stories to her heart content. and it must follow
