8 The Target enough a great black object was ramming the side of the house. He then thrust the pitchfork into the object ' s back. ' With a howl of pain it turned around! What he saw was not Ferdinand; but a huge bear. Grandpa gave one astonished glance and flew into the house. All night the house shook and the next morning the bear was found dead a little way off. Ferdinand was found peacefully reposing in the barn. ELEANOR NOTEWWARE. JOE ' S LUCK Joe Mason lived in New York. He was eighteen years old and was strong and tall. His mother and father were dead and he had no sisters or brothers. Joe was on his way to the depot to inquire if his fifty dollars would take him to California for he had heard of the discovery of gold at Sutter ' s mill. When Joe arrived at the depot the clerk told him that his fifty dollars would not buy a ticket to California. As Joe was turning away a man came up to him and said he knew where he could buy a ticket for that amount. Joe was so excited that he gave him the money and told him to meet him there the next day as the boat was to leave then. When Joe arrived at the depot on the following day he did not find the man. He waited till the boat was about to leave. As he was passing the gangplank, he head two men talking. They were two friends and Joe heard that one of them had bought a ticket to California but found later that he could not go with his friend. Joe told them about the thief and promised to pay the man that was going for the ticket to San Francisco. He gave Joe the ticket, but refused the money, but he would pay for it anyway. Four months later Joe was in San Francisco. His friend had to remain there so he went to the diggings with another man. They dug for weeks without any luck but finally found a large pocket of gold. With the money he paid his friend for the ticket. He then started a real estate company. Later he took in a part- ner named McDuffie and so you can still find the Mason and McDuffie Real Estate Company. MORRIS BROWNING. THE QUEER NOISE R-r-r-r! R-r-r-r! What noise was that? Hear it?

" They looked, and lo! An aeroplane. ' Twas the first ever seen In the country lane. MARGARET FISH.

The Target 7 gathered around us and after a con- sultation placed us on top of a high hill. Then one of the men took a box of matches from his pocket and lighted a long string-like object at the bottom of the tube. Suddenly we all shot towards the moon. When we reached a few hundred miles up in the air another explosion took place and we shot ahead still faster. Explosions kept up till finally we saw a great round ball all white and full of holes. The next moment we hit this round object and sent out a large flash of light. I saw where I was but only for a min- ute. The light went out and I was lost. Undertaking to walk around, I fell into a hole about four feet deep, to get out of which I had to do some work. Finally I succeeded after falling back about three times. Start- ing to walk around again, suddenly, I fell into a lot of soft white snow. A lot of little things began to run all over me and call me names be- cause, they said, I was trying to in- troduce the high cost of living up there. Finally I got up and made friends with as many as I could. They then started to show me around and I fell into more mysterious soft- ness. I kept going deeper and deeper until I found myself completely sur- rounded b} ' a great mass of green cheese. This was the " straw that broke the camel ' s back. " I was good and ready to return to earth. There is no longer doubt that the moon is made of green cheese be- cause I ' ve been there to see. EDWARD PLATE ALL MINE! One day, when I was out hunting, I saw thirty-nine quail perched on the limb of a tree. I had been hunt- ing all da}-, and was on my way home. There was only one bullet left in my hunting bag, so as you might guess I was trying to contrive a way to get more than one bird. After thinking for a while I suddenly struck upon a good plan. I put the bullet in my gun, and shot at the limb, close to the place were it was joined to the tree-trunk. Before the birds could fly away, the limb had split out to the end. Their toes fell into the crack, then the split closed up again, and I had them all. I then took out my jack- knife and cut off the limb, slung it over my shoulder, and went home with thirty-nine quail in my pos- session. MARGARET PRICE. A MISTAKE It was a snowy, blowy evening late in December. Grandpa had just locked up and was preparing to go to bed, when grandma asked him if he had locked the barn door, which contained Ferdinand, a ferocious bull that was brought across the plains with the household goods. Grandpa said he reckoned he had locked that door good and tight as he was not going to take any chances with Fer- dinand. About three o ' clock the next morn- ing the house began to shake, and grandpa, upon awakening, immediate- ly thought of Ferdinand. He was sure he had bolted the barn door! Grandpa jumped out of bed and taking pitchfork in hand went out to settle that colsarned bull. Sure

The Target 9 A Flower Fantasy Scene I — A beautiful shady garden in which many wonderful flowers are growing. At first only the tinkling of a brook and the soft rustling of the trees may be heard. Time — After the creation of Man. Prologue. (Enter fairy, singing.) Fairy: " Beautiful flowers, have you heard it, heard the news? " Tulip: " News? And pray what news could there be? Is there a new flower? " Fair} r : " Flower! Indeed, no! It is a thing called Man. A being so superior that he will rule us all. " Rose (scornfully): " Indeed! " (A babel of voices follow 7 . Ques- tions and criticisms falling pell-mell.) [Curtain.] Scene II — Same as first. Time — Two days later. (Enter a man and woman. The flowers all look eagerly forward. A rose is seen to whisper something to a sweet-pea.) Woman: " See, they all seem eager to do something for us. Look how thick and green the grass is. It makes a carpet for our feet. How beautiful the flowers are. H o w brightly the sun shines. " Man: " Yes, it is true. We must do something to repay them. " Woman: " They need care, poor things! Look, these violets are quite crushed. " (Bending down she kisses them softly.) Man: " Come, we must go on now; there are other gardens that need our care. " (They walk out slowly, arm in arm.) Rose (rather grudgingly) : " They are not so bad, after all. However, I can ' t see as they are so very su- perior. " Grass: " If they like to feel me soft and green under their feet, I will grow my very best, for I love them. " Tree: " And I will furnish them with cool shade. " Violet (softly): " She kissed me. I — I will do everything I can for her. " Rose (still rather grudgingly) : " Well, I can give them great beauty and sweet perfume. " (They talk on and on, each flower offering its best. Twilight begins to gather. The flowers soon sleep. The full moon rises, casting its silvery glow over all. Peace reigns supreme.) ELEANOR EVANS. TRAPPING IN ALBERTA. While Mrs. Perkins and her daugh- ter were clearing up the dinner dishes, Harry and Will climbed upon their Uncle Ned ' s knee and begged for a story. Uncle Ned had just returned from Alberta, Canada, where he had been trapping furs. " So you want a story. Well, I will tell you of my exciting adven- tures when I left my cabin to go over the mountains to trap. Good fur animals were getting scarce near my cabin. " I started on my trip early in the morning with my team of faith- ful dogs. It was very hard climb- ing and we could not go fast on
