SäfAIRY IMJE ® ^ÎIART GRAHAM BONNER ! * V ' CJ*- M, AJJTHO*. N ! ; I CHILDREN POETS. "I want to tell you a story this eve ning," said Daddy, "of a big school in a big city v. in-re they do some very interesting and unusual things. And I want to toll you both about them, Nick ami N: ricy, and let your friends hear about them, too. "I told you once of how they make a game out of learning to be mannerly and of what fun they have acting the t rude and the polite parts. "But this time I want to tell you something of the poetry they write. Yes, real poetry. People often write poetry of children and about them, but It is not often that children them selves write poetry except in prize competitions. "But they do write it here, and they have lots of fun doing it. "This school is a public school and the principal there likes every one of the three thousand children who come each day to the school ! More than that, he Is devoted to them, so he thinks of all the things he can to make the school life more interesting and entertaining and better. "Every year the children get out a book which they write themselves, print themselves, and make the front page illustration and the decorations themselves. They have a print shop in the school, where not only do they print this hook, but they do all the school printing as well. "These books, however, are a collec tion of the best poems written by the children during the year. "There is a great competition, for there are three thousand children as I said before in the school." "What does competition mean. Dad dy?" Nancy asked. "I'm not sure myself," said Nick. "It means," Daddy answered, "when there are a lot of people working or striving to get on and each competes or tries to get ahead of tlie other. Just as if you and your friends might work for a prize! You would all be com peting for tlie prize or all would be in the competition. "So when there are many children who can all try to write poetry for the book and when, of course, only the best will be used fur the school book it makes every one try so hard to do the best possible. "They write poetry of all sorts of things, of things they see, of visits they make, of amusing things, of pret ty things, of jolly things. "Some of them write fairy poetry, and little plays and acts and such things in poetry, and then at times they act fhese out and dress up in the different parts. "Quite often they act out the poems at school entertainments and you can see how that would be. "For just suppose you wrote a poem about a dream, or about a game, or I "They Writ« Poetry. 99 about dressing up, or about trips to a zoo or a farm, what fun it would be to art it out. "The creatures one wrote about could be acted out, and the parts all taken. "It is so fine, too, to think that they get up the whole thing themselves, t The children hand in their poems and the best ones are chosen by the priu cipal for the book and the entertain ments, as I said before. "Then after these are chosen the boys in the print shop set up the poems themselves, so that everything is their own work. "They write in poetry what they think of different things and they write verses to help along all sorts of good work, such as when they're get ting up posters they write verses to go with the drawings. "For those who don't care to write little verses there is a competition to i draw the best picture which will be | chosen for the front of the book. And In thinking of what they, will draw and in trying a number of things they will 1 tell you what fun they've had, for they never know until they stopped to ! look, really how beautiful a tree, or a sunset or a park could be. "And," said Daddy, "after reading the poetry they write it makes oldei people quite ashamed to Think how bright children are!" Nick and Nancy laughed. "We'll write some verses, Daddy, and you will see that we are brightei than you ; I'm sure of that," ended Nancy. . . ; I *• Lucid. Little Roy had returned from a week's visit to his aunt, and was try ing to describe the folding bed he had been sleeping la. "It lays down at Bight,' mamma, and stands on Its hind legs la the daytime." ♦ » *.?■ i r' c 4 i* f h P — w i ey q O v* ""c. nd 1 I JK' u 0'pr ri . e £ fa. B. jSl A N *\ Driver: F. H.

FRANKLIN CAR Reliability and Air Cooling Superiority Again Demonstrated by a 98,2 Mile Non-Stop Low Gear Run Ending at Top of Famous Mt, Washington a m m a « u S3 $1 Rain soaked, slippery rosds; no chains; no stops per mitted—these were the added difficulties to a perform ance generally considered impossible even under the best conditions. But the Franklin reached the summit _ overcame the final obstacle of a 279& grade in perfect running shape and returned to Portland the same day. N August 17th, a Franklin stock model touring car ran all the way from Portland, Maine, to the top of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire on low gear without a stop. This remarkable feet is the latest public proof of the superi ority of Franklin Direct Air Cooling (no water to boiL cr freeze). This car, past such a one as thous ands of Franklin owners are driving all over the country, carried three official observers besides its driver and averaged 11.1 miles per hour —on low gear . The Franklin had already run ninety miles on low gear without a stop before reaching the base of Mt. Wash ington—in itself a test never duplicated by other cars. Then, without halt, came the real test the Franklin had set out to perform—a climb to the top of Mt. Washington, an elevation çf 6290 feet.
