AND JUST what we would enjoy. OF TRIPS and sports. AND shows and all. THE MANY NEEDFUL things. We would do. FOR WHICH WE had alibls. THERE was no time. WHEN SCHOOL holds forth. YEA, Mother's garden. WOULD BE DUG. FATHER'S car ~olished. SISTER'S DOLL BUqGY ~xed. LITTLE brother's steam engine.repalred. THE YARD cleaned up. THE HOUSE scrubbed. THE curtains washed. THE SOX all darned. CLOTHES all n.atly pressed. A VISIT MADE,to,aunt_ and uncle. A TRIP to the mountains was planned. AND another to the city wild. OH! but for the p~ns OF mice and me,hi, AND THE short.span.. OF vacation. HOURS ! But what does the score card tell? A SAD, sad tale. OF well-meant intentions. AS SCHOOL again calls us. TO THE MAD and busy whirl. UNTIL EASTER vacation. WHEN hopeful dreams. OF WHAT MIGHT be done. WILL ever blossom anew. I THANK YOU. There was a school teacher---and there was a pupil--whose name was-- guess it yourself--.and the teacher said --to this pupil--the teacher said:-- "Neal."--she said--"Neal----write a puree --which has the name in it--of a noted author--besides yourselL" -- So the bright pupil--sometimes called a stu-. dent--wrote the following puree----or took it out of a book--or from a funny column--or the Islander --- or from somewhere. Anyway--hereis the pome --as it was turned in--by the pupil--z-" or student--or whatever he is: "There once was a dignified preacher Who said: 'The hen is a beautiful crea- ture." So the hen, just for that, Laid an egg in his hat-- And thus did the Hen-reward Beecher [" But that isn't much--when you stop --to think of it--in case you do--for there was another teacher--who asked a pupil--or student--or whatever he was--to name three authors--when he was watching-the fire fiend--destroy a house--or something-- so the boy-- or pupil--or whatever--be said: "Dickens---Howitt--Burns V' --H.S. Time and tide were waiting for no man--they were waiting for an Avalon bathing beauty. P, S.--The tide is still waiting! WHAT HAPPENED TO C. H. S. STUDENTS IN ROARING TOWN Helen McKclvey played "Dodge 'Era" with the street cars. Catching Island goats had made her nimble, so she is here to tell about the city's most thrilling game. Catherine MacKay spent all her time in a Main street freak show. She wanted to get first-hand information pertaining to her fellow classmates. Also inside dope on some examination questions which she believes are in the same category. The excitement of the great metrop- olis was too much for the gentle spirit of Fred McKelvey, accustomed to the simple Island pleasures. He was ill the night "before" his return to his beloved "Magic Isle." If you want to get along with Ar= thur Goulding, don't kick his goldfish around. Arthur got so lonesome for Catalina during his sojourn in the big town he wandered into a five and ten- cent store and there bought himself three shining goldfish to carry around in his pocket--and some cruel, hard- hearted person knocked them out of his hand. Poor Arthur scrambled all over the crowded store floor after the wiggley, squirming, gleaming little fish. Hither and yon they slithered, gasping and panting, in and out of the threat- ening stampede of feet. Arthur burst out crying at the sad plight of his be- loved pets--and, lo, a salt pool was fornied, and the little fish joyfully flap- ped their fins, and all was well that ended well. Arthur and his fish are safely back at Catalina. Miss Hahn and Herminie what the wild waves were whispering as they sat on the swaying deck of the good ship Avalon, as she rode in the teeth of a raging gale--until an in- quisitive breaker, without respect for faculty dignity, got a bit too familiar and dampened their ardor for "Marine Sports." Perhaps Herminie was the usual disturbing element--and aroused the ire of the sea. Mary had a little lamb; its fleece was white as snow, And everywhere that Mary went the lamb was sure to go. It followed her to school one day,x which was against the rule-- A flea got down the teacher's back-- and they had to close up school! "Prof. Goofus has the worst enunci- aticn--I can't understand half of what he says [" "It's not his fault, poor fellow. His father was a train announcer and his mother a telephone operator."--Brown Jug. It is reported by Patsy Lee that on last Wednesday she heard Arthur Goulding weeping, due to the storm which prevented Santa Claus from vis- iting his home until a day later than usual. Let's sing of Catalina goats, On crags that pierce the sky. There are no low-browed Island goats, Their browse are always high! --The Dash Hound. Flounders are the chameleons of the fish family, changing color to harmon- ize with their habitat. Subscribe now- per yeax. ii
