Continued. 2 Sometimes, too, there were moments of relaxation in her class, when she would stop the lesson and tell the children about Germany: What a beau tiful, good country it was, so trim and orderly, with such pleasant customs, and all the people sensible, energetic and healthy. There was "Music" again in the German class, which was an other alleviation; though It was the same old "Star Spangled Banner over again. Ramsey was tired of the song and tired of "My Country TIs of Thee"; they were bores, but it was amusing to sing them In German. In German they sounded "sort o' funny," so he didn't mind this bit of the day's work. Half an hour later there arrived his supreme trial of this particular morn ing. Arithmetic then being the order of business before the house he was sent alone to the blackboard, supposed ly to make lucid the proper reply to a fatal conundrum In decimals, and under the glare and focus of the whole room he breathed heavily and Itched everywhere; his brain at once became sheer hash. He consumed as much time as possible In getting the terms of the problem stated in chalk ; then, affecting to be critical of his own handiwork, erased what he had done and carefully wrote It again. After that be erased half Of it, slowly re traced figures, and stepped hack as If to see whether perspective improved their appearance. Again he lifted the eraser. "Ramsey MühoDandr "Ma'am?" "Put down that eraser!" "Yes'm. I Just thought" Sharply bidden to get forward with his task, he explained in a feeble voice that he had first to tie a shoestring and stooped to do so, but was not per mitted. Miss Bldgely tried to stimu late him with hints and suggestion; found him, so far as decimals went, mere protoplasm, and, wondering how so helpless a thing could live, sum moned to the board little Dora Tocum, the star of the class, whereupon Bam sey movea toward ms seat. "Stand still, Ramsey I tou stay right where yoc are and try to learn something from the way Dora does 1U" The class giggled, and Bamsey stood, but learned nothing. His conspicuous ness was unendurable, because all of his schoolmates naturally found more entertainment in watching him than In following the performance "of the capable Dora. Instructed to watch every figure chalked up by the mathematical won der, his eyes, grown sodden were un able to remove themsel ves , from the part In her hair at the back of her head, where two little braids began their separate careers to end in a cou ple of blue-and-red-checked bits of rib bon, one upon each of her thin shoul der blades. His sensations clogged his Intellect; he suffered from unsought notoriety, and ' hated Dora Tocum ; most of all he bated her busy little shoulder blades. He had to be "kept In" after school ; and when he was allowed to go home he averted his eyes as he went by the house where Dora lived. She was out in the yard, eating" a doughnut, and he knew it ; but he had passed the age when It Is Just as permissible to throw a rock at a girl as at a--boy; and stifling his normal Inclinations, he walked sturdily on, though he Indulged himself so far as to engage in a mur mured conversation with one of the familiar spirits dwellling somewhere within him. "Pfa!" said Bamsey to himself or himself to Ramsey, since it is difficult to say which was which. "Pfa! Thinks she's smart, don't she?" . . . Well, I guess she does, but she ain't 1" . . . "I hate her, don't you?" . . . "You bet your life I hate her !" . . . "Teacher's Pet, that's what I call herí" . . . "Well, that's what I call her, too, don't ir "Well, I do; that's all she is, anyway dirty ole Teacher's Pet!" CHAPTER III. He had not forgiven her four years later when he entered high school la her company, for somehow Ramsey managed to shovel his way through examinations and stayed with the class. He was unable to deny that she had become less awful lookln' than she used to be. At least, he was honest enough to make a partial re traction when his friend and class mate, Fred Mitchell, Insisted that an amelioration or Doras appearance could be actually proven. "Well, I'll take It back. I don't claim she's every last bit as awful lookln' as she always has been," said Ramsey, toward the conclusion of the argument "Pll say this for her, she's awful lookln', but she may not be as awful look in' as she was. She don't come to school with the edge of some of her underclo'es showln' below her dress any more,- about every other day. and her eyewlnkers have got to stick In' out some, and she may not be so abbasalootly skinny, but shell baf to wait a mighty long while before I want to look at her without gettln' sick !" The Implication that Miss Yocura cared to have Ramsey look at her, either with or without gettln' sick, was mere rhetoric, and recognized as such by the producer of it; she had never given the slightest evidence of any desire that his gaze be bent upon her. What truth lay underneath his flour ish rested "upon the fact that he could not look at her without some symp toms of the sort he had tersely sketched to his friend; and yet, so pungent Is the fascination of self-inflicted misery, he did look at her, dur ing periods of study, often for three or four minutes at a stretch. His ex pression at such times indeed resem bled that of one who has dined un wisely; but Dora Tocum was always too eagerly busy to notice It He was hi most never In her eye, but she was continually In his; moreover, as-the banner pupil she was with hourly fre quency an exhibit before the whole class. Ramsey found her worst of all when her turn came In "Declamation," on Friday afternoons. When she ascend- mm "'Most Pottent, Grave and Rev'" ed the platform, bobbed a little pre paratory bow and began, "Listen, my children, and you shall hear," Ram sey Included Paul Revere and the Old North church and the whole Revolu tionary war in his antipathy, since they somehow appeared to be the property of the Teacher's Pet For Dora held this post In "Declamation" as well as In everything else ; here, as elsewhere, the, hateful child's prowess surpassed that of all others ; and the teacher always entrusted her with the rendition of the "patriotic selections." Rumsey himself was In the same section of declalmers, and performed next a ghastly contrast. He gave a selection from Shakesneare." assigned by the teacher ; and he began this con tinuous misfortune by stumbling vio lently as he ascended the platform, which stimulated a general giggle al ready In being at the mere calling of his name. All of the class were bright with happy anticipation, for the mis erable Ramsey seldom failed their hopes, particularly In "Declamation." He faced them, his complexion wan, his expression both baleful and horri fied; and he began In a loud, hurried voice, from which every hint of Intel ligence was excluded: " "Most pottent grave and rev " The teacher tapped sharply on her desk, and stopped him. "Tou've for gotten to bow," she said. "And don't say pottent The word Is 'potent'." Ramsey flopped his head at the rear wall of the room, and began again : 'Most pottent potent grave and rev- enerd signers my very nobe and ap proved good masters that I have tan away this sole man's dutter It Is mose true true I have marry dur the very headan fran tuv my fending hath this extent no more rude am I in speech In speech rude am I in speech In speech In speech In speech " ' j He had stalled. Perhaps the futa! truth of that phrase, end some sense of Its applicability to the occasion had Interfered with the mechanism which he had set in operation to get rid of the "recitation" for him. At all events, the machine had to run oil Its Job all at once, or It wouldn't run at all. He gulped audibly. "Rude rude rude am I rude am I In speech in speech In speech. Rude ara I In speech" "Yes," the Irritated teacher said, as Ramsey's failing voice continued husk ily to Insist upon this point. "I think you are!" And her nerves were a lit tle soothed by the shout of laughter from the school it was never difficult for teachers to be witty. "Oo sit down. Ramsey, and do it after school." His ears roaring, the unfortunate went to his seat and, among all the hi larlous faces, one stood out Dora Yo- cum's. Her laughter was precocious; It was that of a confirmed superior, In sufferably adult she was laughing at him as a grown person laughs at a child. Conspicuously and unmistaka- bly, there was something Indulgent In ber amusement He choked. He didn't care for George Washington,, or Paul Revere, or the teacher, or the President of the United States, or Shakespeare, or any of 'em. They could all go to the dickens with Dora Yocum. They were all a lot of smart les anyway and he hated the wholo stew of 'em ! There was one, however, whom he somehow couldn't manage to hate, even though this one officially seemed to be as Intimately associated "with Dora Tocum and superiority as the others were. Ramsey couldn't bate Abraham Lincoln, . even when Dora was chosen to deliver the "Gettysburg Address," on the twelfth of February. Lincoln had said "Government of the people, by the people, for the people,' and that didn't mean government by the teacher and the Teacher's Pet and Paul Revere and Shakespeare and suchlike; it meant government by everybody, and therefore Ramsey had as much to do with it as anybody else had. Beyond a doubt, Dora and the teacher thought Lincoln belonged to them and their crowd of exclusives; they seemed to think they owned the whole United States ; but Ramsey was sure they were mistaken about Abra ham Lincoln. He felt that It was Just like this lit tle Yocum snippet to assume such a thing, and It made him sicker than ever to look at her. Then, one day, he noticed that her eye-winkers were stickin' out farther and farther. His discovery irritated him the more. Next thing, this ole Teacher's Pet would do she'd get to thlnkln' she was pretty! If that happened, well, nobody could stand her ! The long láshes made her eyes shadowy, and It was a fact that her shoulder blades ceased to Insist upon notoriety; you couldn't tell where they were at all, any more. A' contemptible thing happened. Wesley Bender was well known to be the most untltdy boy In the class, and had never shown any remorse for his reputation or made the slightest effort either to Improve or to dispute It. He was content: it failed to lower his standing with his fellows or to Im press them unfavorably. In fact, he was treated as one who has attained a slight distinction. It helped him to become better known, and boys liked to be seen with him. But one day, there was a rearrangement of the seating in the schoolroom: Wesley Bender was given a desk next in front of Dora Yocuni's; and within a week the whole room knew that Wesley had begun voluntarily to wash his neck the back of It, anyhow. This was at the bottom of the fight between Bamsey Mllholland and Wes ley Bender, and the diplomatic ex changes Immediately preceding hostili ties were charmingly frank and un- hypocrltical, although quite as mixed- up and off-the-issue as If they had been prepared by professional foreign office men. Ramsey and Fred Mitchell and four other boys waylaid young Bender on the street after school, In tending jocosities rather than violence, but the victim proved sensitive. "You take your ole hands off o' me!" he said fiercely, as they btgan to push him about among them. "Ole dirty Wes !" they hoarsely bel lowed and squawked, In their chang ing voices. "Washes his ears!" . . . "Washes his neck !" . . . Dora Yocura told his mama to turn the hose on him!" ' Wesley broke from them and backed away, swinging his strapped books In a dangerous circle. "You keep off!" he warned them. "I got as much right to my pers'nal appearance as anybody !" This richly fed their humor, and they rioted rond hlra, keeping outside the swinging books at the end of the strap. "Pers'nal appearance'!" . . . "Yow! Ole dirty Wes, he's got per s'nal appearance!" .. . . "Who went and bought It for you, Wes?" . . . "Nobody bought It for him. Dora Yocum took and give him one!" "You leave ladles' names alone!" cried the chivalrous Wesley. "Yon ought to know better, on the public street, you pups!"
