PAGE FOUR ANIMAL STORIES Continued from iast week Written by children of the primary grade, Avalon public school: ---MY LITTLE DOG AND CAT-- I had a little white dog named "Fluf- fy," and a cat named "Snowball." My cat one day crawled in my fath- er's shoe. FlulTy never hurts Snowball. They would play together. They would never fight nor quarrel. They would play together on the grass in front of the house. When any other dog would come around, Fluffy would chase him away. One day some cruel person gave Snowball poison, and she died. Mary Virginia Hey. April 21, 1924. MY KITTEN At home I have a kitten named "Daisy." 'It is black and white. I have had my kitten since I was born. It goes up to Mrs. Rowley's house every night. I feed Daisy bones and bread. "I love little pussy, her coat is so warm, And if I don't hurt her she will do me no harm ; So I will sit by the fire and give her some food, And pussy will love me because I am good." Marion Johnson. 21 April, 1924. LITTLE BLUE PIGEONS My Aunty has some blue pigeons which came from eggs. If we go to see them their mother tries to bite us. The father pigeon brings the little ones something to eat. They are very small now. I have four pigeons. They live in a pigeon-house. We buy seeds for thenl at the grocery store. Martin Eldon. April 21, 1924. OUR GOATS A man at ,Xliddle Ranch gave my brother Philip two wild goats. They are tame now, and they eat out of our hands. Their names are "Trixy" and "Spike." They jump up on us after food. People like them very much. The biggest one has horns and likes to buck. When they are eating the bigger one bucks the older one. We take them up to the nursery to let them eat green grass. They wake up at the same time every morning. They are always trying to get in the house. One day Trixy got up on the table and broke some of mother's dishes. When we take one away for a walk, the other one cries until we bring the other goat back. Agnes Catherine Conrad. April 21, 1923. MY CAT My little cat has five kittens. She washes them. She plays with the kit- tens. They sleep on my bed. \Vhen they are naughty the mother taps them with her paws. Margaret Machado. April 21, 1924. MY PARROT I have a parrot named "Loreta." She talks Spanish and swings around on her swing. Any time my cat, "Kit- ty-Boy," comes near her, Loreta swings around very hard and says "Ff-ff-ffff" at him. When anyone knocks at our door, Loreta says "Come in." People do not know it is a parrot speaking. She cries and laughs, too. Clyde Earl Gibson. April 21, 1924. PRINCE My brother went hiking one day, and caught a dear little goat. He feeds it from a bottle three times a day. When it gets older it will pull a wa- gon and take us for a ride. Virginia Feltrop. April 21, 1924. TOPSY I have a little mother cat, and she has five babies. Her name is "Topsy." I give her milk to drink. Three of her babies are yellow and two are black. I love little pussy, her coat is so warm, And if I don't hurt her, she'll do me no harm. She'll sit by the fire, and I'll give her some food ; And pussy will love me because I am good. Adele Machado. April 21, 1924. CRAG I once had a dog. His name was "Crag." One day I left my Teddybear outside. Crag tore him up. He scat- tered the cotton around the yard. One time Crag climbed through the fence to the neighbor's yard. Then he went to the chicken pen and barked at Magazines Newspapers Stationery Windle's News-Stand, Opposite Boos Bros. What Is vertising? Advertising is nothing more or less than salesmanship. By advertising you sell to several hundred people at one time instead of to the single individual. Advertising does not belong to the realm of magic. It is ability to talk of the product in plain, honest and straightforward terms that ap- peal to the reason and desires of the people whose trade is sought. How do you advertise? There are no end of ways in which you may advertise; there is the hill-board, the circular, the poster, the window display, the circular letter, the personal letter, by word of mouth, and the newspaper, the best method of them all. What does advertising do for you?---All advertising is in- tended to create good will for the product or service adver- tised. Your advertising should create good will for yea. store throughout your trading aera and thereby increase the volume of your business or your annual turn-ovor. THE CATALINA ISLAN DER "For Catalina and Cataliua's People All the Time" AVALON, CATALINA ISLAND, CALIFORNIA them. The neighbors did not like it and they spanked him. But we sold Crag when we moved. Crag's new master liked him. But one night his collar was not there. Some one had stolen it. The next night Crag was stolen too. Crag's new mas- ter was very sad. He put it in the paper and went through the country hunting for him. But he did not find him. We have never heard any more of Crag. David Sloane. 21 April, 1924. "PRINCE" My grandfather ha~d a horse named "Prince." He let me ride him every day. My grandfather would saddle Prince, and I would ride him. I had a little twig from a tree, and I used to touch Prince with it. He would run through a ditch and stop. One night another horse kicked Prince into a fence, and in four days he died. 1 loved Prince, and 1 could not eat my dinner when he died. LaRane Spencer. April 21, 1924. "NELLIE" My goat is named "Nellie." She eats grass. I take her up the hill to get the grass. She runs around. I love Nellie very much. John Rogers. April 21, 1924. ALLIGATORS One day I went to see the alligators. They were under the water, but I could see their eyes open in the water. Lloyd Thomas. April 21, 1924. TWO LITTLE DOGS Two little dogs went in the ocean to swim. Suddenly a big wave came and frightened the poor little dogs. Gladys Hobbs. April 21, 1924. MY CATS My cat is yellow. Virginia's cat is gray. We like to pet them. My cat is named "Yellow-Ball," and Virginia's cat is called "Gray-Ball." I ca!l them kitty. The kitties like to play with a spool or a button. They sleep togeth- er. Mycat looks like a tiger, and the other cat looks like an ordinary cat. Ezmyrl Knopf. DO YOU PRIZE THAT MAGAZINE OR BOOK? They will last much longer if they are bound in a neat cover; and that Radio Journal, or record, can be pre- served for future reference. How about that old prayer book or Bible ? Does it need a new eover? Let the Islander do it for you.
