CHRISTMAS TREE AT
THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL
The spirit of Yuletide was beauti
fully expressed at the industrial
school for girls at 8 o'clock, Tuesday
morning, by appropriate 4 exercises
and a huge Christmas ;tree, r which
was made possible by the -untiring
efforts of the superintendent Mrs.
Range, assisted by Miss Davis and
Mrs. Partridge. The hall and recep
tion room were beautifully, decorated
with holly- and "mistletoe and on the
easterly side of the reception' room
was pJaced the large Christmas tree
which wr.s tastefully decorated with
tinsel, candles and ornaments of all
kinds and loaded down by its numer numerous
ous numerous presents presented a beautiful
picture. The candles were lighted,
room darkened, the reception room
dpors were thrown open and the girls
entered the room to a march played
upon the piano" Toy Miss Partridge. A
hush of awe and silence came upon
the girls as they gazed upon the tree.
The exercises were opened by Mrs.
Range reciting the Lord's prayer,
the girls joining in unison, followed
by the singing of the girls of that
wondrous hymn, Silent Night. All
stood with bared, heads while tears
streamed down the cheeks of some
of the mothers who had come to visit
their girls and be with them on that
day. One, mother said to the writer,
"It is wonderful." Presents were
then taken and distributed from the
tree by Miss Davis, assisted by Miss
Bittinger. Then their joy knew no
bounds? such smiles, such shouts of
laughter and joy burst upon the
scene and such a tree, laden with
presents for everyone; presents to
each other, presents to pupils from
teacher, from pupil to teacher, gifts
from home, from father, mother,
brother and sister, brothers in camp,
fathers in France, consisting of mon.
ey, clothing, shoes, 'stockings, per perfume,
fume, perfume, stationery, dainty negligee,
aprons, haiF ribbons, riflgs none had
been forgotten, showing that love
was hovering around about them.
A beautiful Victrola with records
had been received that morning, a
gift from various women s clubs of
the state. A large box of books had
also been received; oranges, nuts,
candies were given by Mrs. Range.
A couple of hours were spentf in
examining and exchanging views on
the beauty and value of the gifts.
THe strains of a waltz were heard on
the Victrola and as by magic each girl
found a partner and was soon gliding
over the floor, dancing until tired.
Dinner was announced, a line of
marchwas formed by superintendent
and teachers and guests filed into the
dining room, to be confronted with
tables containing two huge turkeys
and all the delicacies for a fine
Christmas dinner. After the blessing
their young appetites needed no urg urging
ing urging nothing was needed but capacity

in just then to play a joke; he took
away the sugar for, the cranberries,
but they all went down with a laugh
and after dinner the fun and pleas pleasure

mantle, and so ended a perfect

school.

No matter1 if 'hearts grow cold,
I know a spot that is my dream
Where the roses their leaves un unfold,
fold, unfold, t
Just a cottage that is small to view,
Half hid 'with its wealth of' bloom,
But some one there has a heart so

And a smile to dispel life's gloom.
Oh, somewhere are mansions big and

' And somewhere are moneyed kings,
But give me a cot in the dear South South-land,

Where the graceful rose vine

Where the honey-freighted hours are

And heart but gladness knows,
Where the moqking bird pours his
soul in song
In time to the swaying rose.

A ROOKIE'S DREAM

A sleeping rookie dreamed a dream
And dreaming dreamed he died.
And straightway to the pearly gates
His bean-stained spirit hied.
What wish you? asked Saint Peter,
As he rapped upon the door.
"To have a home in heaven, sir,
And never drill no more.
"I am tired of squads and right about,
I'm sick of column right;
I'm weary of fixing bayonets
From morning until night.
"I'm tired o work and squilgels,
And scrubbin', washing clothes,
And darning sections of my socks
Where they let out my toes.
"Of roostin' in a hammock, sir,
A mile above the deck,
Where if you tumble out 'tis like
You will break your bloomin' neck.
"I want to leave off drilling
In the beatin', burnin' sun,"
The pipin' and the marchin'
And the totin' of the gun.
"I want to rest forever
In a land of liberty.
Where they never heard of muster
Or wake to reveille.
Where mortals are all equal
Ah'- there ain't no C. P. O's..
And a pair of wings for duty
In the place of summer clothes.
x nom w utc ixi ucaicu, six,
And be among the blest;
Where they don't unlash a hammock
When they go to take a rest.
"I want to be in heaven, there
Among my kith and kin,
So have a heart, St. Peter, sir,
And let a rookie in."
St. Peter paid attention, -Although
he shook his head;s
He thought the matter over
And then he softly said:
"Nay, nay, my son, you ask too much.
You'll find this place too slow,
So try your friend at the other end,
And beat it down below."
