Willard Intermediate High School, Berkeley VOL. II JUNE, 1917. NO. 2 Saved By Lightning The beating of the ’tom-toms an- nounced the arrival of the powerful chief, Smoky Face. Ordinarily his coming would have been an honor to the village, but today a decision was to be made. Smoky Face wished Chief Broken Branch’s beautiful daughter, Whispering Wind, and he had made it known to the other chief that he would go on the war path if he did not get her soon. At sunset he returned to his own village with the promise that Whisp- ering Wind should be sent to him in three days. This was rather an or- dinary occurrence and all of the In- dians, except the girl and one hand- some young brave, thought little of it. All the next day the warrior paced the shore of the placid river and pray- ed for some way to prevent Whisp- ering Wind’s departure. On the night of the second day he crept softly to the girl’s teepee and tapped on the side. She was awake and looked out to see what it was. When she saw Bending Bow she came out into the moonlight night and followed him to the river bank. “Whispering Wind,” said the brave, “you knaw that you do not wish to go to Smoky Face and that I do not wish you to. Come with me, and we shall fly far into the mountains where we may be happy together.” “Yes,” said the girl, “let us go now.” So they gathered together a few necessities, packed them into a canoe, and were soon paddling swiftly up the shining river. They paddled till daybreak, when they rested a little. Then the stream began to narrow and the water roared down the mountain side. They landed then, hid the canoe, and went on. They knew that by this time both Smoky Face and Broken Branch were following with all their braves. So they kept on into the heart of the mountains. Night came, and they turned their way from the course of the river and camped on a rocky ridge. When they awoke the next morning they saw far below them the pursuers, making a bright spot of color in the dull green of the trees. The smoke of their fire had been seen, so they knew there was no hope of escape, especially as the sky was overcast and a thunder storm was threatening. They hid and waited. The storm broke in great fury. The thunder crashed, the lightning flashed, and the rain poured down in torrents. , But when it was over they looked out upon a brilliant, twinkling world. “Hark!” said Bended Bow, as a wail floated below. “The death songs,” said the girl, “My father, have you been struck?” They cautiously crept thru the trees until they came near the In- dians. There they saw Smoky Face on the ground with his warriors about him. Just then Broken Branch caught a glimpse of his daughter. “The child!” he cried, and Whisper- ing Wind knew she was forgiven.

THE TARGET 3 A Modem Rose of the Alhambra For sometime the court of Spain had been at the Alhambra. One day Ruyz de Alcaron, one of the queen’s pages, was flying in his aeroplane, when the wing of his machine caught on the tower of the Infantas, once the home of the three beautiful Moor- ish Princesses. This was quite a predicament for the young page, and in his excitement he hurriedly blew his horn, as if crying for help. Presently his eyes were dazzled with the wondrous sight that ap- peared before him. He found him- self gazing into two of the most beautiful blue eyes in the world. They were wide with terror and seemed to hold great wells of sur- prise, for never had those big blue eyes seen such a great big bird. Where had this monster come from? What should she do? Quickly the owner of those marvelous eyes with- drew from the window. “Goodness what a beauty. I must see her again,” sighed young Ruyz. Loud and clear rang out the chal- lenge of his horn. Then shyly but with much less terror and surprise, the demure Jacinta reappeared. Off came Ruyz’s cap and, with pleasing voice, he begged Jacinta to allow him to go through the tower in search for help. She hesitated but finally granted the desired permission. Ruyz and Jacinta met several times after the accident. Their dream was soon interrupted, however, when the king decided to leave the Alhambra. When Ruyz left Jacinta, he told her he would come back for her. Ja- cinta cried so much when he left, that he felt he must give her some- thing to remember him by, so he presented her with one of the queen’s most precious perculators. Many years had passed, and Ruyz had not come for her. Jacinta mourned for him day and night. One night she was making coffee in her treasured perculator, when the steam made a rattling noise, and from the spout shot a black machine. Ja- cinta was very much frightened, but after she had overcome her terror, she looked on the front of it, and saw the name “Ford.” Then a deep voice way down in the bottom of the perculator said, “Wherever you go with this, you will make people happy.” About this time the king of Spain, who was a curious person, and occasionally had peculiar notions, decided that he was dead. He made the courtiers dress in black, and had himself put on a funeral bier in a room lined with black. When the queen heard of Jacinta and her wonderful machine, she sent for her. When Jacinta arrived, they put the king in the back seat with one of his courtiers. As they were riding on the boulevard, the attendant leaned forward and asked, “Are you not the little Rose of the Alhambra?” Jacinta turned and to her surprise, she saw her lover Ruyz de Alcaron, the page. Jacinta drove the machine in front of the palace. The king, who was thoroughly well by this time, jumped from the tonneau. Suddenly the page opened the throttle ,and Jacinta and he rode through life together. LILLIAN ST. JOHN.
