By William Campbell of Pensacola
Yes Ill admit it was a case at
first sight In the first place red
hair pea green eyes abundant white
flashes just suited hIm In the second
blade hair blue eyes came up to her
every expectation It is said that
every one in love writes poetry and
they were no exceptions As he slip
ped a piece of crumpled paper into
her hand ihe glanced slyly at her now
fwd hen to see whether or no she
appreciated his efforts Lucille blush
ed as she read
Lucille when I look onto your eyes
Green so green
I often wish I could surmise
Why thyre serene
Lucille when I glance at your hair
Of reddish hue
Sunlight and shadows lurking there
Quite a few
I never wander why I care
So much for you
Why thats splendid she whisper
ed Onlyonlyhow many times
must I tell you miy hair dsnt red but
burnished gold
Oher I forgot he staanlmered
Well its not my fault your mem

dudgeon Im mad so there

bunch of pansies on LiucSlles desk
now pansies were her weak point
and he knew it but they were scorn
fully pushed aside The next day
there was even a larger bunch but
they were also rejected
The next day the next and even
the next the persisted until he had
the gratification of seeing her accept
them and smile sweetly at him And i
he knew peace wasdeclared I
It so filled him with joy that he sat
down at once to write an epitath to
be carved on their tomb1 > iite cheer
Four years have passed and still
they gaze at each other out of the
corners of their = eyes still write

No Ones Doll House
By Helena Roy and Hazel Jacoby of
The end of the year has come and
it had been decided that the grammar
grades of School No 1 should make
a model doll house so as to gat an
idea of theix future home The draw
ings of the pupils winch were consid
ered best during the year were on
exihflbition at the sametime
Speaking of artists why where
could any one find such talented pu
pils as No 1 boasts Straight lines
assume graceful farms ana squares
lose their hard apptarances and other
marvellous changes come to paSS un
der the skillful fingers of Pensacolas
future men and women
Any one who has the slightest doubt
In regard to this statement will he
entirely convinced by making a visit I
to School No 1 and take a single
glance at the art exhibit Why one
actually feels tempted to pick the
flowers off the papers
Who could look at the minature
house without feeling a keen desire I
to have A home on the same model
The parlor was prettily furnished
and the bedrooms doll princess
could wish for nothing more The
dining room was the most dainty
imaginable The wallpaper in this
roam Is green bordered with dainty
lowers outlined with a darker shade
of green and the background a light
er green Then there are two little
windows on each side in the back of
the room with little white curtains
bordered in green
A little table stands in the center
of the room very proud of itself and
as well as to say I am fit for a
icing with my four legs to hold me
up and a red leather table cover and
a bouquet of small white flowers
The mission chairs have green
leather seats
But dont let me forget the clock
i + fs a grandfather clock and stands
in the corner amusing Itself by its
ticktock tick took
The fire is roaring to attract the
attention to the white marble arouna
it and the niantle above where a mir
ror is hanging
The floors are cited in black a hand
woven rug is of green wiith a red
border snaking the room look very at

The Spider and the Fly
By Eva Berlin of Pensacola
A fly was > passing Iby a spiders
house one day and the spider called
to the fly and asked her to come in
The fly refused and told the spider
she had heard if anyone wont Into his
house they would never get out again
The spider then said ito the fly Oh
I am sure you mush be fared traveling
so far in the air wont etr come in
and rest upon my heauCffulbed And
the fly answered 0 no O no
Well said the spider I know
you will like some sweets do come
an and I will show them to you even
though yon do mot wish any
I have neiwd about them said
the fly and do not wish to see them
Oh you are so beautiful continu
ed the spider would you not like to
behold a visage of yourself
The fly seemed to be more con
genial now and the spider could plain
ly see that she liked to be flattered
She flew away and said she would
call again
The spider sang to her these
words Oh beautiful fly your wings
and face are so pretty and 1 am so
ugly wont you come overT
And what do you think she did
She flew right to the spider and he
grabbed her and took her into his
But alas the foolish fly never came
out again
Never listen to flattery
You will regret it if you do
And when your neighbor tries to
deceive you
Remember it is not true
The fly was just like a boy or girl
that is tempted to do wrong by people
flattering them This leads them into
the wrong path where some of them
stay forever

The curt old doctor who told a nerv

would get well was more truthful than
politic There is no doubt that con
