The Target The Goddess of the Clouds 3 In a beautiful, secluded valley in China, beside a pretty little stream, stood a little thatched hut. In it lived Hopeful, who had been banished from the Emperor ' s court because he befriended an old woman who had been sentenced to death. The old woman escaped. She was the queen of the gods who came to the earth to see what it was to be a mortal. Hopeful lived here for two years and he grew to love the pretty green valley and the great tall mountains. As he was sitting on the bank of the stream one day thinking of the gay court life from which he had been banished, the beautiful goddess of the clouds, whose name was Faith, alighted from a little golden cloud chariot, drawn by two snow white lambs. Faith saw Hopeful and she fell in love with him. Faith had a guardian who loved her very much He was very selfish and he did not want her to be married. He had two of his servants take her away to a lonely island which was guarded by two fierce dragons. -One of them was on the northern side and one was on the southern side. The island had a spell over it and the spell could be broken only by killing the dragon on the southern side of the island. Hopeful set out to rescue Faith. On his way he met a very old woman who was trying to carry a heavy chest, and he offered to carry it for her. She was the queen of the gods whom he helped in the Emperor ' s court. When they got to the end of the valley the old woman said: " You have helped me very much, so I will reward you. " She gave him a ring set with a beautiful diamond, and a long sword and said: " This ring will make you invisible if you turn the stone three times to the right. To become visible again you must turn the stone the other way four times. This sword is very valuable and you must not let any one touch it. When you get to the ocean you will find a boat. Get into it and say, ' I want to get to the southern side of the island on which Faith is imprisoned. ' Kill the dragon you will find there and Faith will come to you. " Having said this, she vanished. Hopeful followed her directions and when he got there he turned the ring three times to the right. Fie went up to the dragon and killed it. He turned the ring back and Faith came to him and kissed him. Faith ' s guardian died when the dragon was killed. Faith and Hope- ful were soon married in the garden of the gods. The beautiful flowers sent out their sweetest fragrance and all the gods rejoiced. Faith did not want to live with the gods, so the gods made them a beautiful palace in the valley and there they lived hap- pily. MINNIE SOO-HOO. PERPETUAL Pauline Lemon ' s smiles.

2 The Target She heard the front door slam, and then she sank dejectedly into the nearest chair. Her pie was gone. An impertinent peddler had made a per- fect goose of her. Worst of all it was too late to send for more cher- ries. That meant she must explain her silly blunder to Professor Foster. How he would laugh! A tear of dis- appointment slipped down her cheek, and soon she was crying. The door- bell rang. She heard her brother rush to the door. " No, mother had to go down town, but sister is home, " came back in her brother ' s high-pitched voice. " Sister is in the kitchen. Walk right in. Say! are you Professor Foster? " " 1 am, sonny, " answered a deep voice. Mary gasped. Before she could escape, the door opened and there stood Professor Foster. He was tall and handsome. " I beg your pardon. Your brother told me to walk right in. " At once the humor of the situa- tion occurred to Mary. Between peals of laughter she explained her mistake. " But, I can ' t possibly miss that pie, " he declared. " Here, son, " (hand- ing Mary ' s brother a half dollar) " buy us enough cherries for a pie, and keep the change. " Professor Foster sat on the edge of the table, watching while Mary made the pastry for the pie. " Have you heard that song about Billy and the cherry pie? " he sud- denly asked. " Yes, indeed, " said Mary, with a sidewise glance. The Professor looked at her oddly. " Well, Pm Billy— understand? " ALICE ROSENBERRY. IN THE NEST " My goodness, " exclaimed Mr. Bird, " I really do believe spring is here. " He eyed proudly his mate who was sitting patiently on her eggs. After bringing in the evening worms he went happily to sleep. The next day he was awakened by a mysterious sound and looking into the nest he saw a head protrude from under Mrs. Bird ' s wing. An- other followed and soon four little heads were out and four little mouths opened wide. " I ' ll certainly be busy now, " said Mr. Bird. He flew around the gardens and caught several large worms. Then he went to call on Mrs. Wren, with a worm, because her husband had been hurt by a cat. Soon a little girl came out with some crumbs and Mr. Bird brought some to Mrs. Wren and took the rest home. After sing- ing a good-night song he went to sleep, feeling happy that all the babies had hatched out. JANE RICHARDSON. JUST A TREE When I approach my home I look up at my tree. This tree does not grow in my garden, but I call it mine because I enjoy it. I think it is a Chinese plum tree. Its blossoms are very pretty, being white with dashes of pink here and there. The branches are brown, making a good combination of colors. As I look into my tree I say, " It is doing its part in the world by making the world beautiful. " I go on my way full of happiness knowing my tree will make others happy also. WRIGHT MORTON.

4 The Target Dandy and His Double " Ah, at last, here comes Miss Kath- ryne, and I know she must have an apple or some sugar for me, " whin- nied Dandy, one of the most beautiful horses ever entered in a horse show, and a winner of many blue ribbons. Kathryne Cooper did have several lumps of sugar. She patted Dandy and talked a while to him, then went into the next room to find Mose, Dandy ' s special groom, who was cleaning some harness. With much delight Dandy heard this news: " Mose, father and I are going to Jacksonville for the winter, as you already know. We have de- cided to take you and Dandy, too. - You would better leave as soon as possible — sometime today. " Soon the two were on their way to the south and in due time reached their destination. The Coopers had gone on the " Limited " and, there- fore, arrived first. As Mose was riding Dandy from the station to the hotel stables, a man rushed from the side of the road and commanded them to stop. But Mose did not hasten to obey, so the man drew a revolver, and threatened to shoot. The man, who was a de- tective, thus addressed Mose: " You and your stolen horse are un- der arrest. " Mose gasped and replied, when he recovered his voice. " Arrest, — stolen hoss, — why man dis ain ' t no stolen hoss, he ' s ma own, or I mean I ' ve took care of him nigh on to two year and ain ' t no stolen hoss ' toll, no sah. " The officer not letting Mose finish, continued, — " Never mind any such lame excuses, you know you are one of that band that stole horses in New York, and have come here with this valuable one to dodge the detectives, but we have you now. Never mind any ' buts, ' you ' re under arrest, so march right along there to the court house with me. " What could Mose do now, but to follow, although he knew he was not guilty, as well as he knew his own name? When they were passing the hotel, Kathryne and her father were on the wide veranda. " Oh, there ' s Dandy and Mose, let ' s go to meet them, " exclaimed Kafhryn ' e. " They seem to be in some sort of trouble, we would better hurry, " re- plied her father. They did not catch up with the little party until they were in front of the court house. Kathryne and her father in amazement asked what it all meant. The chief soon came out and everyone seemed to be talk- ing at once. Both parties were equal- ly sure that they were right. Above the argument, Mose ' s voice was heard calling attention to two fast riding horsemen who were com- ing up the road at a fast pace. An- other detective, and a surly negro on a horse almost identical to Dandy, the same markings on the forehead and on the hind foot. The officers looked very sheepish over their mis- take. Dandy and Mose were allowed to return to the hotel with Miss Kathryne and her father. A day or two later Kathryne met the owner of Dandy ' s double. Paul Stanton, being notified of the finding
