THE TARGET On the homeward voyage, they were wrecked on a great iceberg that moved about the sea hunting for ships. Fortunately Odysseus was adjusting the anti-wireless engine of submarine, which was propped up on the deck, at the time of the accident. As the submarine floated from the deck of the large ship, Odysseus was astonished and frightened to see the white mass approach him. Start- ing the engine he dived under the ice mountain, and two weeks later ar- rived safely home. CLARENCE MAYO. A DAY IN A COUNTRY SCHOOL (A True Story.) The teacher came out on the porch of a small country-school house. She rang a large bell. The children ran talking and laughing into two single lines. They marched in, to the music of an old organ. Eight grades were in one room. Then the whispering began, that lasted all day. While the eighth grade was laboring over hypo- tenuse, the first and second were learning a new song. Little Arthur cried out, “I bet I can lick you, George Haskins!” The teacher pulled her whip off of the organ. On the end dangled a dozen lizards, tied on with “lizard snares” as the boys call- ed them. The teacher screamed, which delighted the children. She angrily exclaimed, “You big boys shall remain after school to-night, and write your spelling lesson fifty times!” Arthur smiled to see she had forgotten to punish him. At noon when they had eaten their lunches from the red and yellow “cut plug” chewing tobacco lunch cans, the boys tried to play rugby, about which they didn’t know much. The girls wanted them to pl?y baseball with them, so at every chance, one would throw the ball over the fence or kick it away. But the boys soon found a remedy for this, by threaten- ing to kiss every girl that bothered them. Tlmre was a general restlessness in the ;oom when it was drawing near four o’clock. As the lessons were finished, there was a bustle, and the itobm was empty. The teacher had forgotten to keep the boys. The boys and girls with their lunch cans, all climbed into a large grape wagon filled half full of pomace coming from a nearby winery, and slowly they dis- appeared down the road. JANICE BARTLETT. BUM. My brother and I had been camp- ing out. One early morning we heard an animal howling, as though in pain. We hurried up the valley and were just in time to see a large herd of cattle charging down on a a dog caught in a steel cayote trap. I drove the cows away while my brother released the dog. He was a fine big brown animal with large in- telligent eyes. After returning to camp we fixed his foot. It had just been caught between the toes and he was well in a short time. We named him Bum. Several days later the three of us, my Brother, Bum and myself, started on a hike through the snow-covered mountains. It was a narrow path, with a straight wall above, and a sheer drop of several hundred feet below. Suddenly while on the worst part of the road we heard a rumbling roar that grew louder each moment. Looking above we were terrified to

12 THE TARGET wisely said that the greater the de- lay the more the suspicion. Mr. Wil- son was taken prisoner and would have been shot had he not been seen by a general who asked why it was being done. When the American said, “That’s what I would like to know,” he saw the injustice of it and thought it better to inquire. In the meantime Mrs. Wilson and the children were trying to convince the soldiers that they had no enemies hidden. The house was searched eight times because they were posi- tive they had seen some on the roof. It was done under this excuse, but it was also noticed that many things dis- appeared. Suddenly, in burst Manuel trembling as he said, “Senora, the men disobeyed, and they watched the Zapatistas’ victory. A few were shot before they could scramble down. The Senor was taken prisoner. I would have come sooner but the men would not let me knowing I would tell.” As Mrs. Wilson was .going to see the commander about her husband, he appeared. She explained about the soldiers, seen by them, who were really curious factory men. “He will have a fair chance, but it is really a very serious matter,” was his reply. The English consul worked as he had never done before, and it was through his efforts that Air. Wilson was proved innocent. The penalty was, however, a pass given to him, a sign that he must leave the country. As it was not posisble to travel with- out this necessary bit of paper, the Wilson family had not left before. When safely in the United States, Mr. Wilson said, “It was a pretty risky way of getting a pass, but cer- tainly more effective than our many other attempts. I wonder if they thought coming here, was a punish- ment.” THE ODYSSEUS OF TODAY. After the European war, Odysseus gathered the treasure belonging to him and sailed for home. His treas- ure consisted of one hundred and fifty tons of pigiron, fifty pounds of gold, two tons of copper, a Welsh rabbit, and a telephone with which to speak with Mars. Soon they arrived at the land of the Dough-eaters. Here they leveled the city to the ground with their large guns. Landing, Odysseus and his men divided the goods left in the city, and feasted until night on rarebit, chicken, doughnuts and wine. The Dough-eaters, who had escaped, went to their neighbors for help. In the morning when Odysseus and his crew awoke, they heard the throb of the motor trucks and air- ships bearing the friends of the van- quished Dough-eaters. In the battle which followed, Odysseus was de- feated and lost ten men from each shop. The rest of his men fled. A few days later, they sighted the Island of Batteries. The ships sailed into the harbor. Several went to Davy Jones’ locker on account of the electrified water. Those that had escaped, steamed away. One morning they arrived at the Island of the Meat Choppers. Here several men were killed by acci- dentally falling into the choppers. Having rested, the remainder sailed to Mars. Here Olysseus installed his telephone system, thereby con- necting Mars with Air. Edison. He left Alars and soon arrived at the cliff of the Talking Alachincs. Here Odysseus and his men, with the aid of their sound-proof suits, destroyed these wonderful instru- ments and used the steel from the machinery for a wireless tower. ELIZABETH JENKINS.

THE, TARGET sec a huge avalanche hurtling to- wards us. We ran and narrowly es- caped being caught in the snow slide. Failing to see Bum, we started in search of him, but were stopped by the end of the path. We went in the other direction but after a walk of several hundred feet, were stopped in the same way. The path had been carried down. Bum was probably dead, but we would die a worse death, that of starvation. At the end of the first day we were beginning to feel hungry. We ate sparingly, how- ever, for we did not know when we would get more. That night we slept restlessly. Next morning I said, “We have about one chance out of a thousand for release because there is not a settlement closer than twenty miles.” At the close of this second day of torture, for our water supply was gone now, my brother became delirious. As I woke next morning I was hor- rified to see something wriggling down the clifT above us. I thought at first it was a snake, but I soon saw it was a rope. Then a man above me shouted, “We’ll pull you up.” I tied my brother on, and soon followed him. On arriving at the top I was astonished to see Bum, alive and hap- py- Then the sopkesman said, “Yester- day a dog came into our burg and seemed anxious to have some one fol- low him. He looked fagged out so we knew he had come a long way. We got up a searching party and he led us here.” Bum in some miraculous way had escaped death in the snow-slide and had gone forty miles to save our lives. GORDON INGRAHAM. A MEETING OF HORATIUS AND MACAULAY. “Why, who is this I see? Can it be Horatius?” He was a new arrival in the Dream Land of Flowers. “Yes I am Horatius, but who art thou?” said a strong looking man, who had been in the Land of Flowers, long, and was tired of the quiet life. At present he was conversing with Ulysses. “I am Macaulay,” was the brief re- sponse. “Not he, who hast written of my d eed ifi the glorious Roman days, long since past?” “Yes, the same. ’Twas a glorious deed, Horatius. Many are the chil- dren who have learned the stanzas whitch tell of it, tho’ but feebly ex- pressed. “I owe you eternal thanks. But thou pratest like a woman. Bah! Such foolishness. Modesty is a woman’s virtue, unsuitable in a man. Those stanzas which thou hast written are glorious. Without them the deed would long have been for- gotten, though great in its day.” “Methinks that many days from now your noble deed will still be famous. But come, we must eat and drink or else grow feeble like chil- dren.” The speaker was Achilles, and they slowly wended their way to the river’s brink, where Macaulay taught them what a picnic was. MARY HUGGINS. Teacher: “My liege, I hie. Define ‘liege.’ ” Jose Makalalad: “A souvenir.” Mansie Soo-Hoo: “Our High Ninth class looks so small, doesn’t it?” Ellen Marsden: “Yes, Erie Fon- taine isn ' t in it.”
