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

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?

IO The Target account of the deep snow. I ex- pected to get to the other side of the mountains before night but it was impossible because a terrible storm came up. Having decided to camp on the side of the mountains, 1 built a small shelter and after cooking supper and feeding my dogs, I rolled up in my blankets, close to the fire, and went to sleep. My camp fire had burned low when I was awakened by the loud barking of my dogs. As I sat up, rubbing my eyes, I heard the distant howl of hungry wolves. Reaching for my rifle, I quieted my dogs, which were whining at my feet. I thought for a few seconds and decided that the best thing to do was to meet the wolves half way, as I wanted to save some of my provisions. I started out with my dogs at my heels. In my haste I did not notice that I had not fastened my cartridge belt on tight. When I ran down the mountain it fell off. " The dogs jumped at the throats of the wolves and I shot as fast as I could. You can imagine my sur- prise and dismay on reaching for more shells to discover that I did not have my belt. I used the butt of my rifle for a club and my dogs fought bravely many of which were killed. After a couple of strenuous hours of fighting, the dogs and I had killed so man}- wolves that the rest gave up the fight, and went back into the woods. " I took the wounded dogs back to camp and there discovered that my favorite dog, that was also the leader of my team, was severely torn and crippled. The only thing that could be done was to put him out of his misery. After I had tended to my other dogs, I crawled into my blan- kets to try to sleep the rest of the night. Morning revealed the fact that during the night several of the severely wounded dogs had died. " While I was getting breakfast I decided that I would go back to my cabin. I reached it by nightfall and in the morning set my traps on the old trapping grounds. " Much to my surprise and joy, when I went to visit the traps, I discovered that I had the best ' catch ' of the season. " YUKONIA YOUNKINS. THE KID MINER Stanley, a fourteen-year-old boy, lived with his father in Xew York. His mother had died the previous year, so when the " Gold Rush " started the} ' decided to try their luck at mining in California. On their way across the Isthmus Stanley ' s father died of yellow fever. Having completed his lonely trip to the Pacific, he found a ship ready to sail for San Francisco. He asked for passage, but the captain refused, saying he was too young to make the voyage. Having learned from one of the crew that the ship was to sail on the morrow, he waited until nightfall, when, unseen, he climbed on board and concealed himself under some of the deck cargo. After making sure that his pres- ence was still unknown, he crawled out in search of food and water. To his great joy he found some sup-
