12 THE TARGET TO A BUTTERCUP. Buttercup, buttercup, smiling to greet These soft, gentle breezes, whene’er you them meet. You bow, and you wave, and toss with delight, When along comes the breeze, and takes you to flight. You make us all happy, and cheer us when sad, And when children find you, they do seem so glad, That you ought to remember the good you can do, And bloom afresh next year with blos- soms anew. LADEANE SHATTUCK. SANDY. Sandy was a sandpiper. He was a very small bird and had a long black bill and tiny web feet as all sandpipers have. He lived on the beach with a flock of other sandpipers, flying close to the waves near the shore and hav- ing a very good time. But one day a dog running into the water frightened the flock and they, flying very near the shore were shot at by the boy who owned the dog. About twenty fell and Sandy was one of them. Some of the birds that fell were carried out by the waves, but Sandy who was only shot in one wing walked along the beach. And I walking by, saw him and finding his wing hurt, took him home. He ran about the floor catching a fly whenever he saw one and after a while became so tame that he would come to me whenever I called him. On cold nights when the fire-place was lighted Sandy would run in and stand by on the hearth on one leg, with his head under his wing. Other days in the summer Sandy was let out to run about the lawn. He would never run away and always came when you called him. But Sandy did not live long, for he missed the ocean and other birds of his own kind. He died one night, about two months after I found him and I buried my little friend under a poplar tree on the lawn. BEATRICE MILLER. A SPANISH LOVE STORY. Florita and Beebo were going to elope, so one morning before sunup. Beebo rode up to Florita’s house and called for her. She came up, mounted behind him, and they were off. But Florita’s father was on the track and he was much opposed to their mar- riage. They were in despair as they heard the pounding footsteps of his horse. But Beebo suddenly thought of a bright idea, — he would dismount, hide Florita and the horse, disguise himself as a caballero and waylay the old gentleman. This he did most succes- fully. After tying Florita’s father to a near-by tree, Beebo mounted and rode back to Florita. With the two horses they then galloped quickly to a neigh- boring Father and were married. On their return Beebo hid the stolen horse and mounted in front of Florita. When they arrived at the scene of the bloodless tragedy, they both dismount- ed. Beebo played the part of the gal- lant rescuer and set the old man free, after which he gave them both his blessing. THOMAS RICKARD. The boys always start their folly Of kicking Linden Naylor’s collie. If they don’t stop, by gollie, They’ll get a bite from Linden’s collie. Irma Bennett — “The consul killed himself and took his army.”

BASEBALL. The team, o n account of the splen- did support given by the boys, girls and teachers of McKinley School, has had one of the best years in our base- ball history. Out of 14 games play- ed ten have been won, one tied, and three lost. McKinley has defeated Franklin, Whittier, and Washington Schools, all of Berkeley. In G. Ward and L. Marsellis, we have two good pitchers, both having three-hit games to their credit. The team tenders its thanks to the boys, girls and teachers for the sup- port they have given us. MONTE HODGMAN (Captain). OUR SPIRIT. We ' ll shout for “Mckinley,” we’ll stand by her, too, To the dear school, you know, we’ll ever be true. We honor her colors, they ' re always ahead, There’s none that can beat them — the black and the red. Her teams are victorious wherever they play; Her loyal school spirit grows stronger each day; Her name stands for honor, her ban- ner for worth ; Hurrah for “McKinley,” the best school on earth! CHARLES HONEYWELL.
