LOYALTY. Fight ior the Red, the White, and Blue, Live for all that it means to you, Give for its strong- support abroad, Work for its cause, help lift War ' s load. Then when sweet Peace shall reign once more, Proudly will come our Flag to the fore, To stand for all that ' s right and good, In just the way it ' s always stood. ELIZABETH MUNSON. OUR GUIDE. Oh flag that floats in sky of blue, Our hearts to thee shall e ' er be true; Thy colors bright our guide shall be, To fight the foe across the sea! And when our boys will aid the French, And join our friends in hut or trench, n The Allies all will bless thy stars; And we ' ll thank God that you are ours. MARY PARHAM.

THE TARGET 21 Jimmie and Murphy were tender- feet in rank but not in spirit and thought. All day they had tramped from door to door only to be met with a curt, " We have all we can afford, " or a short " Don ' t care for any more. " The patriotic little fel- low ' s idea that everyone was just like his own dear daddy and mother was rudly shattered. His hand thoughtfully stroked his fur coated friend ' s back. " Murphy, old pay, " he wailed, " Jack has sold six bonds an ' he ' ll getta go on the hike next week. " Murphy ' s tail wagged and his soft nose buried itself comfortingly in Jimmie ' s hand. " Just wait and we ' ll see what will happen, " he seemed to say. Next day a sad Jimmie started on his campaign again; Murphy had dis- appeared in the night. Jimmie wan- dered disconsolately through the streets until he came to old man Streeter ' s home. Streeter was the most close-fisted man in town with his money. He cared for no one but his taciturn housekeeper. As Jimmie resentfully peered through the iron-railings of the fence surrounding the garden he saw Murphy calmly strolling by old Streeter ' s side. Streeter ' s low- spoken words just reached Jimmie. " Murphy, you ' re only a dog but you are a better citizen than I am — or was, " he corrected. " This will be our little secret, won ' t it? " he chuckled, " of how you brought that poster to me last evening and plead- ed with your soft brown eyes with me. Here just take this $10,000 bond back to that little master of yours and we will see who gets to go on a hike. " PEARL JOHNSON. A DREAM. The morning sun was filtering through the high trees and the wild flowers were just lifting up their drowsy heads. Among them were beautiful Fritillarias and shy Mist Maidens, also the sweet Hairbells and Shooting Stars. Softly to the tune of tinkling bells, the fairies came winding through the trees. They formed a circle about their queen who stood in the center. She softly waved her tiny wand, and as she did so, from out of the shy wild flowers came fairies, and from the trees, dryads. Then as these new fairies joined the ring, they lightly danced round and round their queen. The vision grew fainter and fain- ter and suddenly, I awoke finding my beautiful adventure, nothing but a dream. KATHERINE COLE. THE BIRTH OF A NEW DAY. Slowly the glittering stars winked, blinked and went out. Tile east grew light; first a dull red, then pink, then gold, as the sun rose. The soft tiny clouds turned a golden color. As the sky grew bluer and the horizon lighter the clouds turned pure white again. The tip of the sun peeped over the crest of a pine-covered mountain, flooding the earth with a golden light, causing the dewdrops hanging like jewels from the faces of the delicate spring flowers, to sparkle and shine. Suddenly all the birds of the woods burst into joyous song, their notes floating far on the gentle breeze. A new flay had been born. ROSALIE LOUBENS.

THE TARGET 23 An Exempted Man ' s Reward " Rejected. Tuberculosis, " said the examining physician. The waiting room was filled with recruits and every minute counted. Nevertheless the look of bitter dis- appointment in Harry Wellman ' s eyes aroused a feeling of sympathy and he added, " I am sorry, my boy, that one who is so eager to go to the front has to be disappointed. " Harry ' s eyes snapped and his voice said huskily, " Do you mean I am not to go? " " Yes, " said the physician. As Harry passed out of the office, a flash of bright color at the City Hall caught his eye. Pausing to look he read, " Food will win the war. " Harry ' s father owned large wheat fields in Montana, but Harry had never wished to spend much time there. But as he passed out of the office and saw the poster he thought, " Why not raise wheat for the gov- ernment since I can ' t go myself to war? " " I am leaving for the farm, father, " announced Harry when he reached home. Harry left as soon as he was able, as the sight of the boys in khaki and blue made him downcast. Not long after he reached the farm, he noticed a young man hang- ing over the fence and looking around. As the man looked suspic- ious, Harry walked over and asked him what he wished. " Work, " said the man looking Harry up and down. As Harry was short of hands, he said, " Very well, report at 5:30 in the morning, and we will see about some. " Next morning the young man ap- peared and Harry gave him work. He sent him out to a large granary on the edge of the farm to sack grain. Looking around to see if anyone was watching him, he struck a match to set the place on fire. But more quickly still a revolver was pointed at his head. " I though you looked suspicious so I decided to follow you and see what kind of work you really would do, you sneak! You are another one of these men the government is itching to get a hold of, " said Harry. " Follow me to the house. " With a sneer on his face he turned and followed. Then Harry tied him to a tree till help came. Soon he was taken to prison and was found to be guilty of burning wheat fields in the south. He was sent there, tried, and shot as a spy. i£ % % % % % ifr i£ % % % Men of the third draft were be- ing examined. Harry Wellman again stood in line. After two years on the farm, he was now a strong sun- burnt man. " Accepted, " announced the physi- cian. Harry hurried home to tell his people the news, and to make pre- parations to leave for camp. MARY MANSELL. Fight the Kaiser, Fight him hard; Plant a war garden in your yard. Let Parsnip the Kaiser, Let Artichoke the Hun, Lettuce all turn up the soil Until the war is won.
