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

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.

The Target of his horse had come post haste to get him. Upon looking up the pedigree of the horses it was found they were brothers. Of course each wanted to buy the other ' s horse, but naturally neither one would sell. There was only one satisfactory way to settle such a dif- ficulty. One day while Paul and Kathryne were out riding, the problem was solved. The two horses are now always together, as are Mr. and Mrs. Stan- ton. GRACE RICHARDSON. TO A DOG As I walked by a school, at the close of the day, A little black dog, I passed by the way. With ears pricked up. and expectant eye Without offer of friendship, he passed each one by; Till at last came a laddie, all freckles and tan, To whom all unmindful and joyous he ran. Oh, blest is the boy who may own such a friend And tenderly love him, until life ' s end. I, too, was a child, with freckles and tan, And to me as to him, a little dog ran, But the years passed by and I wan- dered far From the childhood scenes that nothing can mar. FLORENCE BULLARD CURIOSITY WINS One summer Joe Samson and his friend, Bob Riley, were camping in the high Sierras. Upon finishing their lunch of fresh trout and bacon, one da3 r , Joe suggested reaching a certain point that night. Bob, however, was of a different opinion and he answered, " No, thank you. I ' m about dead and I ' m going to take a nice long nap right here. " " All right, " was the reply; " have it your own way! " And the two exhaused boys lay down and went to sleep. All of a sudden Joe, for some unknown rea- son, woke up. He looked where his companion was resting and he saw a huge rattlesnake coiled on Bob ' s chest. " Oh, what shall I do? " he thought. " If I shoot it I might shoot Bob! If I disturb the snake it will be sure to strike at him. " Then a brilliant thought came to him. Knowing that rattlesnakes are curious animals, he went off a short distance and rustled some leaves with a twig. The sleep} ' snake raised its head, opened one eye, slowly un- coiled and came over to see what was happening. As soon as the snake was at a safe distance from the sleeping boy Joe raised his rifle and shot it. " Whew! " breathed Joe, " that sure was a close call. Wake up, Bob, old top and hear a great story!

Serve with white sauce. "
