was heard directly above their heads, and they all stood frozen in their tracks. " What was that? " whispered Tom. " Somebody said, ' Whooo ' , " answered Joe. " Gee, Joe, wish I wasn ' t blindfolded, " said Ted. When Joe came to the exact spot and found the rock marked with a white X, he could have shouted for joy. In his excitement he rolled the rock away and began to dig, forgetting all about the two boys with him. " Say, Joe, what are we waiting for? " asked Tom. " Why this is the spot, " cried Joe. " You can take off the blindfold now. " The two boys obeyed, and after a while each took a turn at digging. " My, but it is dark, " said Ted. " If it wasn ' t for that flash light, we would be almost lost. I never knew the woods were so spooky at night. " Then there was a clinking sound as Joe ' s shovel hit a tin object. He threw away his shovel and kneeling removed a small, tin box. Tom and Ted were so surprised that they were speechless. Then as Joe opened the box and viewed the remains of poor Greenback, Tom and Ted rolled on the ground and laughed until they cried. Marion Tor pen. Aunt .tone ' s Itulc Qne day Aunt Jane came for a visit. Upon arriving, she saw my brother Tom ' s motorcycle in front of the house. She asked Tom what that " newfangled contraption " was. He explained as best he could. When he had finished his explanation, Aunt Jane announced to a very astonished family that she wished to take a ride on the motorcycle. Fin- ally Aunt Jane and Tom were off. Tom went very slowly at first for fear of shocking Aunt Jane. They had no sooner gotten out of sight of the house than Aunt Jane told Tom she would like to go faster. He went a little faster, but that wasn ' t fast enough. Tom increased the speed until finally they were really going fast. Once Aunt Jane got a little too con- fident when they went around a corner, and she was nearly dumped onto the ground. Her legs went up in the air, and her hat fell off. At home a neighbor came running up the walk. She told mother that Aunt Jane would be dead by the time she got home because Tom was going so fast. Mother hurried through the house gathering all the things that " poor Aunt Jane " might need for her nervous breakdown that she was surely going to have. When they finally reached home, we were all lined up in front of the house, each holding something that Aunt Jane might need. We rushed down to the motorcycle and started helping her out, but to our surprise she pushed us off and told us she could get out of that " con- traption " alone. Mother told her that she must go to bed at once. Aunt Jane said she would not put a foot in bed. " In fact, " she said, " I am taking Tom with me to help me pick out a motorcycle. " Aunt Jane did buy a motorcycle. When she got home, she hired a chauffeur to drive around in her motorcycle. Marian Fisher.

9 A Treasure Hunt " PJey, Tom! " called Ted. " What ' s the matter? " asked Tom. " Look! Our frog is dead. " " Gee, what happened to it? " " I think it was run over by a car, " replied Ted. " Poor old Greenback. Well, let ' s get a box and bury him. " " That is a good idea, but where shall we get a box? " " Perhaps Mother has one. You hold the frog, and I ' ll go and ask her, " said Ted. Ted went into the house and found his mother in the kitchen. " Mother, have you a small, tin box that we can have? " asked Ted. " I think so, Ted, but what do you want it for? " " Our frog just died, and we want to bury him. " " Where do you intend to bury him, son? " asked his mother. " In the back yard, I suppose, " answered Ted. " Oh, no, you ' re not, " warned his mother. " You take him out to the woods along the lake and bury him there. " " O. K., Mom., " replied Ted as she gave him a small, tin box. That afternoon the two boys went out into the woods and buried the frog in a well hidden spot at the roots of an old tree. When they had covered the little grave with vines and leaves, they placed a large stone on top of it and put a small X in chalk on the stone to mark the spot. They walked slowly back home. On the way Tom remarked, " What if we forget where he is buried? Don ' t you think we should have a map? " To this Ted readily agreed and a map was made which looked when finished very much like a pirate ' s map. This turned out to be wasted effort for the map was soon lost, and even Greenback was forgotten. About four weeks later Joe Brent, who lived next door, came rush- ing over to tell Tom and Ted that he knew where some hidden treasure was buried and he was going to let them in on the secret on one condi- tion, a promise to be taken to the spot blindfolded. " What is the big idea? " asked Ted. " Well, you can help me dig, " replied Joe, " but the chest may be too big to bring back, and it ' s just as well you don ' t know too much about it. " " Oh, all right, " agreed Ted. " When do we start? " " Tonight, " replied Joe. " But why dig for it at night? " asked Tom. " Well, who ever heard of anyone ' s digging for buried treasure in the daytime? " exclaimed Joe. " O. K., Joe, " agreed Tom. " We ' ll meet you by your front gate at midnight. " That night the boys met by the front gate as planned. Ted and Tom were blindfolded and led along by Joe over road and path out into the woods. Several times Joe stopped and flashed his light on a small map he was carrying, and then the march proceeded. Suddenly a mysterious noise

The Adventure of n Squire John Moreland was a squire in the immense castle of the Earl of Tun- bridge. The Earl of Tunbridge had gai ned his power through the death of Richard II and was now one of the most powerful earls in the land. About the time John Moreland had been a squire eight months, the Earl of Tunbridge had a bitter quarrel with his neighbor, the Earl of Southmore, whose castle was about fifty miles away. The Earl of South- more was also very powerful and owned much land. The two lords had never been very friendly, and now they were the bitterest of enemies. There had always been a dispute over who should control a certain road between their castles, and at last the matter had become serious. The Earl of Southmore stationed his men around and began to besiege Tun- bridge Castle. The people in Tunbridge Castle were not very much wor- ried because they had a good supply of food and two wells where they could get water. One night John was instructed to take some armor to the smithy for repairs, and, as he was crossing the great quadrangle quite close to the huge, stone wall, he discovered several objects that seemed to be stealthily moving on top of the wall. John finally recognized them as the heads and shoulders of men. They could not be the guards because the guards would be pacing up and down. Then like a flash John realized what was hap- pening. All the guards along this part of the wall had been captured and the Earl of Southmore ' s men were making a surprise attack! Before he could sound the alarm, several dark forms had dropped on him and had bound and gagged him. He heard one of the soldiers say in a whisper, " Take him back with the others and send them all to Southmore Castle. They will give us all the information we need or wish they had never been born. " John could feel himself being lifted over the wall, and on the other side he was put into a small, wooden cart. The poor guards had evidently been sent on ahead. John was thinking fast now. He knew that if he could only get free he could go to the Earl of Tunbridge ' s friend, the Earl of Salisbury, who would surely come to the rescue. The soldier who had tied John up in the dark evidently had made a poor job of it for in a little less than an hour John had his left hand free. In a minute he had untied his other hand and his feet and was out of the cart. After a two hours ' grueling journey, John arrived at the gates of the castle of the Earl of Salisbury. He had a hard time gaining admittance because he looked like a beggar after his journey. When he had finally gotten in and had told his story to the Earl, within twenty minutes the Earl of Salisbury and all his men were on the march for Tunbridge Castle. The suprise attack of the Earl of Southmore had completely routed the Earl of Tunbridge ' s men and they were on the verge of surrender when the timely arrival of the Earl of Salisbury and his men saved the day. The combined forces of the Earl of Tunbridge and the Earl of Salisbury immediately made a counter attack which resulted in the utter defeat and surrender of the Earl of Southmore.
