The Cat "Write-Up."
Thursday morning a picture of a cat
smoking a cigarette and riding a bi
cycle was hung up in the first grade
of the Corinth Graded School,
and the pupils were asked to write
about it. llelow is one of the stories,
given exactly as it was written, by
Earnest Ellis. Earnest, began the term
without the knowledge of a letter in
the alphabet, and this composition is
printed from his own handwriting and
composition :
Once there was a queer little eat.

very pretty cat i think,
riding on a bicycle. The eat bas a cap
on his head. He is also smoking a
eegar. He lias five cegars with him,
but whop he dropped four of Jiis
gars, and lie will cry about it. The
cat did not go to school where they
teaehed them to not to smoke. Don't
you wish the poor cat would stop
smoking cegars? It will kill him.
And it will make his lungs blak as they
can be. And it makes him not notice
his teacher in school when he goes.
And it will help him not to grow big
and fat like all the other cats,
