appeared and said, " Well done, you have earned a home in our city. Your sacrifice has been sufficient, your love has proved true enough, and your heart is kind enough to be one of us. " Billy was overjoyed. He had been put to a test and passed. His conscience was greater than his wishes, and by thinking more of others than himself he had gamed his long looked-for hope. As Billie stood in utter amazement and bewilderment, the sky opened, and there he saw his wonderful city as the lights flashed, and, lo and behold, he had been dreaming and the crackle of the bright fire in front had awakened him. Billie sat and wondered. What a wonderful dream! And how true it was. If he lived entirely for others while on this great earth, he could be- come a citizen in God ' s wonderful city, which was founded on love and peace. " Is it worth it? " thought Billie. Oh yes, a hundred times yes. Just think, to be able to live in the Great Golden City, all could be his for mere obedience and love and Willingness to do for others. BRUCE GEORGE. A SEAGULL If I had choice of bird or beast A seagull I would be, On worms and starfish I would feast, And I ' d float upon the sea. I ' d sit upon the dock and sun My feathers clean and neat, I would not like the folks who come And scared me from my seat. In the morning on the sea, On the rolloing waves I ' d rock, And when at last I tired would be I ' d find some wharf or dock. If I had choice of bird or beast A seagull I would be, On worms and starfish I would feast Instead of cake or tea. DORIS ROBRECHT.

Billie ' s Golden City BILLI E sat curled up in grandfather ' s big chair, in front of the fire- place, reading from his new story book of the princess and the dragon. How he wished some beautiful fairy would come to h.m and take him to visit wonderland. He wished not in vain, for out of the bright flame appeared a wonderful fairy with long golden hair and so radiant that it almost hurt Billie s eyes to look at her. Her dress was of flame color and she had large beautifully colored wings. " Billie, " she said, " what do you want? Where do you want to go? You have been such a good boy, I will repay you by taking you wherever you would like to go. " Her voice was so sweet and mellow that Billie v anted to hear her talk. " Oh, " said Billie, " take me to wonderland to see the little elves and all the pretty things. " The next moment he found himself with the fairy in a large city. The gates were of shining gold and shone radiantly. Billie and the fairy entered. The streets were of pure gold and every- thing was shining with diamonds and precious stones. The fairy took him to the palace of this wonderful city and the sight was so magnificent that he could hardly believe his eyes. The castle was as large as two city blocks. Billie entered and was taken to see the king of this wonderland. The king received him hospitably and told him about his wonderful city. He said, " Our city is run by love and justice, we have but one law and that is love. Everyone knows the other and helps the other. " " Oh, " cr ed Billie, " May I live here? " " Well, " said the king, " down where you live is some wonderful trailing arbutus and before anyone can live in this city he must bring some- thing which will benefit or beautify it. This arbutus is way out on the edge of a forest and on the brink of a great precipice. If you can get this you will be justly awarded and be one of us. " Billie was overjoyed and said, " I will try, " and he found himself back in his own land. Immediate- ly he began his search. Far out into the great forest he wandered. Through the great woods he followed the paths until he came to a great precipice and there, quite a way down, he sa w this wonderful arbutus. " Oh, I can get that, " said Billie, and so he tied a rope around his waist and then securely fastened the other to a tree near by. Just as he was about to grab the large bush of arbutus, he noticed that right in the center of it was a nest of beautifully colored eggs, and then he saw a bird above who seemed to be in deep distress. Billie stopped. This was the bird ' s nest; he couldn ' t take it. " No, " said Billie, " I would love to go to that wonderful city but I can ' t spoil the nest. " He pulled himself up, with great tears in his eyes and tried hard to be contented. Just then the fairy

Saved by a Mountain Lion ONE morning in their spring vacation Tom and Bill started on a hike. They had just come from the city to visit their uncle ' s ranch in the mountains, so this was their first hike. The trail they took was an old lumber road. Nobody ever used this road except occasionally to hunt, or to look for stray cattle. The boys had gone quite a way when suddenly Bill stopped, and exclaimed, " What was that noise? " " I didn ' t hear anything unusual, " said Tom. " No? I heard something. Listen, " said Bill. As the boys rounded a corner they saw, to their surprise and delight, two little bear cubs playing. The cubs would cuff each other and tumble over each other and yet hardly hurt themselves at all. The boys crept closer and closer, not seeing the mother bear, who was very anxious about her cubs. As soon as she saw them she started to chase them. She chased them until they were about ready to drop from exhaustion, when all at once one of her cubs gave a cry of distress. The bear immediately left the boys and ran to see what the matter was. A large mountain lion was about to spring on one of the cubs. Suddenly a large meteorite made of fur, claws and teeth landed on the back of the astonished lion. A long, hard fight ensued, in which the mother bear finally won. The boys, however, did not stay to see the fight, and it was a pair of tired, scared boys who reached home that night. STUART GRINNELL. UNDER THE SUMMER SKY How blithely the father sings ! As softly the brook does run ; What has the mother under her wings, As she sits in the summer sun? Oh, hush ! See what appears, As father spreads his wings to fly ! The fuzzy heads of five little dears Under the summer sky. ELEANOR CORBETT.
