The Canal Zoiie High School is of peculiar
interest in that it is the only high school directly
o\nned and controlled by the Government of the
unitedd State'. The schools were organized in
i4t'5 under the direction of the Collector of Rev-
iuues. and in January 1yo6, the Division of
'Schoolr waas created with D. C. O'Connor as
Superintendent. The first High School was
established in i,,o',. It was not until the next
year that there was organized departmental work.
Rapid ha, been the progress made in the high
Thi- year has brought changes that add much
to the prestige of the school. The long felt need
of Mechanical Drawing has been satisfied. Phys-
ical culture and Spelling have become part of the
daily program. More interest is shown in ath-
letics with the result that a Field Meet washeld.
It was :o successful that plans are afoot to make
it an annual affair.
Each year there has been an increase in the
enrollment. The present Freshman Class are
more than fifty in number, and this year's grad-
tating class includes eleven members, an increase

prides itself especially in the fact that it receives
its diplomas from such an institution, having
finished the course in the same year that has
witnessed the opening of the Panama Canal, the
greatest engineering feat and greatest aid for the
advancement of commerce and civilization of the
world. In this class there are five young women
and six young men, who start forth to face re-
sponsibilities. and to gain a broader knowledge
of the world from the greatest of all teachers,
This year marks the seventh publication of the
"Zonian," our High School paper. We take
special interest in this little paper, as it is the
only means of exchange between the high schools
of the States and ourselves.
It is with mingled feelings that we send out
this little book to our friends, with pleasure,
because we shall be brought into closer relation
with each other through the exchanges. We
have given our best and hope that you may be
kind in your criticisms.

The Senior's Farewell
RICHMOND HUNTER '15.
Farewell ye stately halls ofschool
With glory never waning,
Of fleeting joys and sorrows past
Our thoughts thereon are d 'Iellin:-z.
The goal of twelve long years is won,
But 'twas a varied ilay,
For many comrades at the start
Were lost within the fray.
But now the (qutj-ti Ir oft repeated
To be or not to be-
Confronts now in earnest mood
Of calm tranquility.
Our hopes, ambitions, castles airy,
Of future life scorns time.
While thoughts of our late victories
Awaken hopes sublime.
A last farewell good comrades all,
Ye faculty and friends,
As is the help of rain to flowers,
So has your kindness been.
Though far we go o'er land or water
And to the four winds scatter,
Think'st thou forget we our best friend,
Our only Alma Mater?
Dorothy Wonson '15
After I left school, I received a position as
physical instructor in a Girls' High School.
Very often I had wondered what had been
the fate of the members of my graduating
class. One morning as I sat resting after
my classes had been finished, and pondering
over the past. I was overwhelmed with the
desire to know just what had become of my
classmates at the Canal Zone High School.
Suddenly I thought of a medium, who had
established a parlor a few blocks away. That
same afternoon I went to her. At first she
demurred, saying it would be most difficult to
summon so many people at one sitting, but
finally, after much persuasion, she agreed.
We sat down opposite each other, with our
hands together. She commanded me to con-
centrate my thoughts on my wish. She sat
motionless with her body rigid, staring fixed-
ly into space, and muttering to herself.
, Suddenly across the dark curtain in front
of me appeared a tall dark form, most gaudi-
ly clad. With much difficulty, when the
face was turned my way, I recognized Rich-
mond Hunter. our most quiet and dignified
Senior. He disappeared before I could col-
lect my scattered wits.
In his place came Esther Francis, whom I
scarcely recognized on account of her slender-
ness. Busy as a Red Cross nurse, she tar-
ried but a moment. A most ministerial
figure next appeared in a black frock coat. I
was able to recognize him, only by the faint
traces of the once-merry twinkle of his eye.
I knew it was Fred. the happy-go-lucky fel-
low of school days. After the shock of know-
ing that he had chosen such a serious work,
I awaited breathlessly other visions. Lo, it
Simple, demure little Josephine was now a
mighty leader with her suffragette banner,
struggling for the rights of women. Then,
can it be possible that the following soberly
clad vision, with his yet more sombre colored
socks, is Paul Warner, who prized his gaily
matched set of tie, socks and kerchief more
than an exemption?i He looked rather
crushed and dispirited, as if the world had
not treated him tairly.
The next moment 1 .saw Ethel Gowan, and
horrors! She was dressed in a ballet dancer's
costume. Our dignified Ethel, a dancer! Who
could ever have dreamed it! I was so dazed
at this revelation that it was some time be-
fore I could look again.
Even more astonished did I become when
I saw tall and stately Andrew Fraser in danc-
ing pumps, and evening suit, going through
the latest steps.
Will surprise never cease? There were
Lewis Moore and Franke Reisner luxuriously
dlad for the opera, happy and thoroughly
satisfied with each other, and their lots in
Last of all came John Loulan, wearing a
pair of spectacles, bent over a table, littered
with paper-e. He was industriously writing,
and the frown on his face reminded me of the
time when he used to argue against every-
thing that was proposed, whether he was in,
favor of it or not.
As soon as I returned to consciousness bf
the present, it all seemed a hazy dream, but
I went home happy at having had a glimpse
of the lives of my former classmates.
Last Will and Testament of
The Class of 1915.
Note: We, the Senior Class of 1915. hav-
ing reached that point in our noble and glori-
ous career, where there are no more worlds
to conquer, have decided to put on the lights
and retire from this earth forever. It is
due to our natural love of work that we take
this great step; we feel that we could not
exist without it. We ne\er boast, but feel-
ing ourselves far above all others, we fear
that. being idle, we would become drawn to
the level of those poor, but earnest, workers
who dwell in three dimensions. We have,
therefore, decided to retire to Mt. Olympus
with the other gods and goddesses, who, 'e
feel sure, will appreciate us far more than
the deluded mortals of this earth who refuse
to be guided by our shiningg light.
The Clas.- of 1916 has always appeared to
us a rather promising group of young inno-
cents, who, in spite of their many drawbacks,
might some day hope to approach -a close
proximity to our present position of worldly
prominence. To help them toward this end,
xw. hereby make our last will and testament
in favor of the young hopefuls, and there-

hope, are pleasant memories, also their seats
in the rear of the Assembly Hall, with the
caution to behave and not let themselves be
caught in any misdemeanor whatsoever, lest
they be moved to the very front seats.
In witness whereof, we have hereby signed
and sealed and published this instrument,

The White Tiger
Parul '. Hunter '16
Terror reigned in the little village of San
Juan, situated near the headwaters of the
Rio Boqueron. .\len with bows and poisoned
arrows glided, like shadows, from place to
place, while women and children with fright-
ened faces glanced occasionally through the
openings of their bamboo dwellings.
The "Evil One", the white tiger, was
abroad. Daily his victims had increased un-
til every family of the village mourned some
dear one. Again and again unsuccessful at-
tempts had been made to overcome this king
of the jungle, until the fear of the evil one
seized them, causing riot throughout the
town. He never clawed his victims, this
white demon of the thicknesses, but broke
necks and limbs. Day by day he grew bolder,
even d.iring at last to enter the village, seize
upon the inhabitants and drag them into the
jungle. One time some little children were
playing at the edge of the town, when a
great, white shadow glided noiselessly
through the bushes near at hand. Suddenly,
before any warning could be given, a white
streak passing through the air described a
graceful arc and landed in the center of the
group. Seizing a child, it disappeared with
one bound into the bushes. The news spread
like wildfire, causing much lamenting in the
village, for the child was the good headman's
Calling together his warriors at the gather-
ing place under the palms, the headman
picked fifty loyal youths. Soon the flower of
the warriors, led by their brave chieftain,
entered the jungle, with the solemn determi-
nation never to return until they accom-
plished their purpose. All day they beat the
trail back and forth, every inch covered and
recovered, without a sign of the beast.
With the coming of the night they .iini.!,-
in'a small clearing beside a swift-flowing
stream. The shadows drew closer and the
light disappeared. Gradually the night grew
older, the shadows darkened, the jungle
noises increased until with the coming of the
moon a great tumult ensued. A solitary sen-
tinel sat leaning against a tree, with his com-
panions lying in a large circle at his feet.
Like a statue he sat, staring straight ahead.
Slowly his head drooped lower and lower.
The solitary guard of the night was asleep.
In the clearing over by the stream mules
and oxen were grazing contentedly in the
moonlight. Now and then a horse neighed
or an ox grunted. Without the circle of the
clearing the jungle noises ensued. Suddenly
the noises stopped, even the frogs ceased
their melodies. Intense, nerve-racking si-
lence prevailed. Then, faintly in the dis-
tance, a cry was heard, a cry for help, in this
vast region, a human cry. It ceased, and
was heard no more. Slowly, like the winding
of an organ, the noises began afresh. The
jungle knew when man was to die. The
night grew older, the moon traveled.
Suddenly, without apparent cause, the
stock became restless and all noses were
pointed windward. Something was in the air
and coming nearer. The mules walked ex-
citedly around and the oxen stood, like
statutes, looking intently. The moon, then
high in the sky, showered its light upon the
sleeping forms of the warriors and upon the
unfaithful sentinel. The jungle noises again
softened until the same intense, painful si-
lence prevailed. "Crack," the silence was in-
terrupted by the breaking of a twig near at
hand. The mules were now running the
length of their halters and the oxen pulled
at their ropes, but the men slept on.
Two green spots appeared in the under-
growth near at hand on the opposite side of
the stream. Nearer and nearer, like the com-
ing of the stars at evening, they drew. Not
a sound was heard except the trampling of
the mules and oxen. The moon then passing
over the opposite trees fell upon the stream
and beyond. There, crouching on the ground,
with the blood of the last man-kill dripping
from his jaws, law the silver tiger, the evil
one. The well-poised body, the graceful
limbs, the large cruel jaws. the waving tail,
the silvery hide and the glaring eyes all told
too plainly the strength, the determination
and the cruelty of this lord. Surprised by
the light, it bounded with a roar upon the
sleeping warriors, dealing death at every
Grasping the situation, the chieftain, who
had been injured himself, bid the remainder
of his men to spread out around the animal.
"Zing! Zing! Zing!" the arrows were flying
fast. The great beast, bleeding and torn,
bounded around and around the clearing,
striking death on every hand. Seeing the
frightful losses of his warriors, the headman
grabbed a spear and springing to the center
of the clearing posed ready for the thrust.
The great tiger whirled around and stopped,
crouching ready for the spring. Something
in the man's eye detained him. Quick as
lightning, taking advantage of the pause, the
deadly spear went home. With an unearthly
roar of thunder the mighty animal made his
last great effort, a bound, a blow, and rolled
Rushing to their leader, the warriors lifted
him from the ground where he had fallen.
To their surprise he was yet alive. The tiger,
in his unsteady leap, had missed the neck,
striking low at the stomach. Again the evel
one had not clawed his victim.
On examining the body of the beast the
mystery was easily solved. Being so old, the
once sharp claws had become dull and worn,
thus making them useless in combat. As to
the color of the hide, it was not white, but
an aged gray.
What was that! A cry! A human cry!
Some one was calling not far away. Spring-
ing through the bushes in the direction of
the sound, the men discovered a well beaten
trail which they followed, running. Again
they heard the voice, now just ahead in the
thickest of the jungle. Whose voice was
that? It was familiar to their leader, who,
outdistancing his followers, soon reached a
den. There, playing on the ground, a ward of
the white tiger, was his daughter.
Old Panama City
Josephine Prochaska '15
To enter Old Panama city you pass over an
old stone arch bridge. Over this bridge ran
the historic royal trade road, the first trans-
continental highway in the western hemi-
sphere and once the richest in the world. One
can still catch a glimpse of it, but it is over-
grown with vegetation and is soon lost in the
Old Panama, nestling in her peaceful bay,.
with all her picturesque old ruins, makes a
beautiful picture, for which the rolling,
grassy plains furnish a splendid background.
The most pretentious of the ruins is the"
cathedral of St. Anastasius, whose tower is a.
silent reminder of the beauty of a former age,
Sticking out from every crag and nook in the
walls are all kinds of plants-even at the
very top of the tower immense trees, with
their gnarly, old trunks, are growing within
the walls and sometimes jut out through the
doors or windows. These walls, especially
in the corners, are broken away in such a
manner as to show that Father Time has
been aided in his work of transformation by
the energetic efforts of treasure seekers. The
walls are very thick, and at short distance
apart are pierced through by square open-
ings; t these were probably used either to hold
their crude cannons or the flaming knots
,which gave them their light.
Judging from the windows, which have
-well kept their shape, the tower must have
been tiur stories high. How the top was
reached is a puzzle until you discover just
outside the tower a much smaller tower,
cylindri_",l in shape and close against the out-
side wll. Its diameter is not more than a
yard. Very high up can be seen a few steps
supported by a single timber which looks on
the verge of falling any minute. Here, then,
was a spiral staircase down whose steep steps
.and around whose sharp curves probably
many an excited Spaniard had dashed to
warn his fellowmen of the approach of pi-.
From the ruin a magnificent view of the
ocean is obtained. The harbor is spacious
and the mountains seem defiant giants placed
out in the water to guard zealously the en-
trance. Also, large, flat boulders, well weath-
ered, lie scattered about, and here and there
are many dlirt't-ent kinds of wild fruit trees,
such as plum, mango, banana, cocoanut and
There are several other ruins, all of which
testify elftertit'ly to the careful masonry
practiced by the Spaniards. The most inter-
esting of these are the dungeons, with their
grated windows and doors, the shackles re-
maining to give evidence of the method of
keeping prisoners from eSci;Iping. There is
also the half-underground cemented cell, so
small that the unfortunate victim could not
lie down with ease. A small grated door is
the only opening. This dark, gloomy cell was
used to wrest the truth from helpless culprits.
Over the walls of all these ruins are
carved names and symbols which lend to the
enchantment and add to the ancient appear-

"Lorna Doone" was captured by the "Pi-
rates of Penance" and kept a prisoner in
"King Solomon's Mines." "The Pirate King"
"Ivanhoe" loved her, even though her face
was covered with "Freckles," but her true
lover, "The Harvester," came and rescued
her. They sailed "Westward Ho" to "Treas-
ure Island," where they found the "Water
Babies" playing with a "Little Buttercup."
From thence they went home. One day when
"Lorna" was walking out alone, "Ivanhoe."
who was something of a "Sorcerer," stirred
up a great "Tempest." She was knocked to
the ground and was only saved because the
"Merchant of Venice" happened to be riding
by on "Black Beauty." He carried her as far
as "The Crossing," where she fell off. Be-
cause of a wound which covered her "Pina-
fore" with blood, he though she was dead,
and so turned "Deserter." "Old Black Joe"
saw her "Old Gray Bonnet" floating down the
"Suwanee River." He found her and carried
her to "Uncle Tom's Cabin," where she was
visited by "The Slim Princess." "Lorna"
gave her a "Rosary," which she said "The
Harvester" would recognize. The "Princess"
went for help to "The Merry Widow," who
knew all the men thereabouts. "The Merry'
Widow" said that "The Lady of the Lake"
had seen a "Ne'er-Do-Well" sort of a man
about her home. It so happened that "Lorna"
had heard "The Call of the wild" and had
wandered toward the lake. "Ivanhoe" saw
her from "The Circular Staircase" and re-
sorted to his old plan of a "Tempest." But
the wind blew the two lovers together and
they jumped into the lake and sank "Below

For hours had I been nodding over a seem-
ingly impossible problem of Calculus. Slowly
my weary head sank to the paper-strewn
desk before me. Suddenly without any noise
or warning there stood before me a small,
unnatural being. His hair was white and he
was scarcely four feet tall, while over his
tanned face played a jolly smile.
"Who are you?" I cried, upstarting.
"You don't know me, then." he said glee-
fully, advancing across the room, and de-
positing himself in an arm-chair.
"Do have a seat," I begged, somewhat ruf-
fled but more calm. "Who or what are you?"
"I," said the visitor, "am your spirit of
"Nineteen fifteen," said I thoughtfully.
"Ah, yes, I was but a lad of seventeen then,
in Panana attending high school."
"You were .indeed," said my spirit glee-
fully; "you were indeed."
"I wonder what has become of all my
friends there," I mused aloud.
"It was this that I came to see you about,"
said my spirit, jumping up. "How would you
like to go with me tonight and see your old
classmates as they are?"
"Great!" I cried. "Have you the power,
"Are you ready?"
"Who first?" queried my guest.
"Let's see first what became of that poor.
helpless body of students that we out of pity
"Place your hand on my belt."
This I did and no sooner accomplished than
we stood in the midst of a busy street of the
great metropolis. On our left a motley
crowd was gathered around a man on a box,
in his hand a bottle, and his voice ran some-
thing like this: "Gents, 1 have here in my
hand the only pure and ab-so-lute-ly success-
ful cure for spring fever. I am selling this
wonderful remedy at the ridiculously small
price of ."
Something in this man's voice caused me
to look again, just as I was about to tell the
spirit that I knew no one there, but that
second look revealed to me the care-worn fea-
tures of poor old Fred Whiston. No longer
did his broad smile so well known among his
classmates play over his wrinkled face.
Heartily saddened by such a revelation, I
begged the spirit to take me away.
The scene shifts and we find ourselves in a
pretty little glade near one of New York's
famous State Highways. A whir is heard
in the distance and with an inarticulate cry
of warning, my spiritual companion half
pushes and half drags me from the road in
time to miss being run over by a speeding
ten-cylinder "Chalmers". "Spirit," I panted,
"in spite of the eighty-mile clip and a dense
cloud of dust I distinctly recognized the occu-
pants of that car. The lady driver was the
identical Esther Francis that I used to know
and the tall gentleman in the back seat
was W- ."
"Hush," said the spirit sternly, "we speak
only of Seniors tonight."
"Well," I sighed, "I am glad to find one soul
is made happy; Esther always was fond of
Again the scene changes. We are some-
where in the West, and directly before us,
march ing slowly over the waterless wastes of
the bad lands of Arizona, we see the small re-
mainder of a regiment of infantry. The
small handful of ragged men toil painfully
up one of the numerous hills. The sun grows
hotter and with their canteens emptied, many
are leaving the little column only to fall in
the sand exhausted. At their head a young
officer marches, treading the slippery sand
with tireless gait, and from time to time en-
couraging the ever decreasing and thorough-
ly discouraged column. Who was the hero?
Ah, gladly will I break the news: It was big
"Rich" Hunter. Another, then, has gained
his dearest wishes, and turning to the spirit,
I asked for the next.
As the last trace of the sandy desert fades,
we find ourselves in a small, badly lighted
garret. In the corner by a break in the wall,
probably meant for a window, stands a three-
legged chair, fighting desperately to maintain
its equilibrium against the allied forces of
gravity and of, four extremely large rats.
But listen, someone is mounting the stairs.
Then with a crash the door opens, and in
walks a tall, thin, neglected specimen of the
human race, under his arm he carries a large
black portfolio. This he throws wearily at
the busy rats and sinks slowly into the
"No use," he mutters dully, "they don't ap-
Glancing at the half-opened portfolio, I see
that it is filled with cartoons of the day's
latest topics. But alas no mask of anguish
or grief can hide that face from me, for this
undiscovered and unhappy genius is no other
than the world-famed high jumper, John
Loulan. Sorrowfully we leave the "studio."
Guided by the spirit, we are making our
way through the dense crowds of a major
league ball game. Invisible, of course, we
glide out over the field, finding that the gar.n
is about to begin. The players have all taken
their places with the exception of the pitcher,
whom I see now leaving the bench amid the
cheers of the fans. The crowds are wild and
the cheers shake the grandstand to its very
foundation. The umpire stands forth with a
huge megaphone and gradually the thrinri.
"Batteries for today," roars the umlpir',
"Moore and ," but the catcher's name
is drowned by the outburst of applause.
"Can that be the Lewis M.nr- that I used
to know ?" I muttered.
"Yes," answered the iiirit. "he is quite a
favorite, you see."
The spirit hurries me away before I am
able to see the utter and inevitable defeat of
Back to the great Metropolis we go, down
to the wharves this time. On each side w'
the street solid ranks of Suffragette infantry
are drawn up. Farther down one may see
the greater part of the cavalry and one or
two batteries of artillery. I learn from pass-
ing remarks that this General Prochaska,
with her invincible armyette and its intelli-
gence and bravery, has conquered all of the
United States. I learn further that she is on
her way with a picked body of nurses frin.,
her famous '~Al.a- Red Cross Society" to
Germany to assist the suffrage movement
there. The step from "Josephine the Senior"
to "General Prochaska the (h.il i.r-.iite of
SiilT'aFi-"' is marked Ith'ir...llghlit by her cool,
(;.i1:1.iting and far-sighted brain, so fre-
q(IueLntly exhibited in her Senior year.
In due time we leave the wharves and find
ourselves in a Flat, through which echoed
sharps from a large piano, delicately mixed
with a series of high falsetto flats of a femi-
nine voice. Softly we crept in and beheld-
you could never guess-seated at the nI I Iiri -
cent piano, Ethel Gowan, her fairy -ini'-..r
running lightly over those ivory keys. But
wait, we behld more than this, oh, yes! Be-
fore a large mirror danced Little Franke
Reisner, the mirror probably representing a
crowded theatre and Ethel the orchestra.
Dancing before the crowded balconies with
stage-fright fartherest from her thoughts,
Franke sang. sang for all she was worth. We
didn't know how much that was, but judging
from the noise, it was way up in the millions.
Owing most to Franke's wealth, we were
forced to leave and soon found ourselves in
sunny California. Let us enter this peach
orchard. Down at the far end four men are
crating peaches. Such gigantic peaches I
have never seen before, two men to lift one
of them and only two in a crate. Surely no
average farmer nor fruit-grower has grown
such prize specimens. There, if I mistake
not, is the agriculturist himself. Wo should
walk down between the rows of great trees
but Paul Warner. Going up to the men, he
watched them awhile, and then overhauling
the pile of fruit, he singles out an extra large
peach. then lifting it up alone, with apparent
ease, carries it up to his magnificent resi-
dence. Here we leave the happy Paul and
search out the remaining two of that motley
crowd of Seniors.
Andrew Fraser we find busily engaged in
teaching a bevy of girls to swim. Here at
last "Andy" shines, and had there been any
doubt in the beginning as to his identity, it
was blown to the four winds when we saw
him, a modern Apollo, posing gracefully on

one of the number.

We leave only to find Dorothy Wonson in
a little country school-house in the wilds of
Wyoming, seated at a large oaken desk. Is
this not a beautiful occupation, this work of
drilling into the solid ivory craniums of the
little Indian boys and girls the difference be-
tween right and wrong, when to say "thank
you" and "if you please"? When we enter,
as usual invisible, she is reading to the school
Tennyson's "Brook". Slowly the little heads
sink to their hardwood desks as:
"And out again I curve and flow,
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on forever."
Evidenly she did, for just as the last little
woolly head started on its downward path, I
awoke with a start to find either a terrible

Two Hours in a Haunted
Phylhs Kelly '15
Stories of the spirit world always held for
me a fascination hardly less than supersti-
tion. I heard many stories of such mani-
festations but never, of course, was fortunate
enough to be singled out for any attentions
from the great unknown. However, one of
my most intimate friends was a man who
owned a beautiful house which was supposed
to be haunted, although he himself scoffed at
When, accordingly, he went to Europe on
one of his numerous tours he left the key to
this charming house with me. He had many
beautiful antiques and exquisite curios which
he had brought from the old world on his
rambles, and as he left suddenly and knew no
one whom he could trust to as caretaker, he
asked me to look in on his treasures occa-
Soon after his departure, the numerous ru-
mors and stories which were continually cir-
culating concerning the supposed ghost, be-
gan with renewed vigor. My interest was
aroused and I resolved to spend an evening in
the house for my own satisfaction.
The night I decided upon was not the kind
of a night on which one expects to see ghosts,
for it was brilliant with the glory of a full
moon. I stealthily approached the house and
unlocked the side door, for which I had the
key. I opened it and, entering the library
which was just across the hall, I settled my-
self for a quiet vigil in an easy chair in the
I must have fallen asleep, for when I awoke
the moon was obscured by a cloud and all was
quite dark. As I realized once more where I
was, I fancied that I could hear noises in the
hall between the library and the side door-
Before I could investigate further I observed
that a small light was being flashed about in
the hall and I quickly stepped behind a chair.
From here I saw that instead of a ghost I was
going to be confronted by a burglar.
But no! He turned away and I heard him
"The dining room silver first-and then
some of this antique stuff."
I then realized that my friend's house was
about to be plundered unless I could act, and
act quickly-but what could I do? Here was
a burglar armed and ready for fight at a mo-
mnent's notice. How could I circumvent him ?
As I pondered for a fraction of a minute, I
suddenly received an inspiration. I knew it
-would be several minutes at least before he
could secure the silver, as it was all packed
away in the chests. Quickly passing to the
library table, I opened the little drawer, in
-which I knew my friend had left the keys to
the cabinets wherein he kept his most
precious treasures. I drew them out and,
cra-issing the room, I paused before a deep
closet which some former owner had put just
tIx.ide the library door.
This I unlocked with one of the keys in my
Iand and then turned to the library, and
hnstily gathered as many of the most at-
tra,:tive curios and placed them in plain sight
on the floor of the little closet, leaving the
door wide open.
Then I again put myself in concealment be-
hind the chair and trcmbnlingl. and fear-
funly awaited his return. What if he should
-miss some object he had noticed on his first
visit here, or what if he had observed on his
first visit that the door of the closet was
closed and so suspect my ruse? These thin i
nade the suspense so terrible to me that I
'was tempted to try the telephone-even
though I was sure he would hear my voice
and escape, probably carrying with him my
frend's family silver.
As I was crouching thus in an agony of
fear I heard him again approach the library.
Quickly crossing to the closet, I secreted my-
self behind a thick velvet curtain just behind
the open door of the closet and waited. I
found a small hole in the curtain, through
which I could see him standing in the door-
way. The moment had come-would he fall
into my trap or not?
Fortunately he crossed the room and, paus-
ing a moment before the door of the closet, he
-fe completely into my trap, by going into
the closet to examine the curios with which
I had baited him so feaifully.
Quickly picking out the key to the closet,
I -pushed, aside the curtain, and quickly
slammed the door, at the same time fitted the
key in the lock, and so secured my prisoner
before he had time to realize what had hap-
Then I paused and from the closet could
hear pouring forth maledictions such as one
The matter was soon disposed of. I tele-
phoned to the station and soon my IPri-o1'r

As I locked the house securely, I wondered
how I could have been so careless as to leave
the door, by which I had entered, unlocked
and thus provide an entrance for the burIm'l.i ..
It was an hour after when I was safe in
bed that I realized that I had completely for-
gotten to look for the ghost.

The Convict Ship "Success"
Mincr Cotton '18.
The convict ship "Success," which passed
through the Panama Canal on January 4,
1915, is probably the only convict ship left
on the seas today. This ship is built of teak-
wood and is, therefore, very strong. In the
olden times the "Success" was used in the
transportation of convicts from England to
Australia. It remained in this service for
many years. Later, it was used as a training
ship. a prison, and a storeship for explosives.
it ;s fiUnally engaged again in carrying pris-
One time when the ship was lying off Syd-
ne'. Australia, the pul.lic became so ashamed
to think that thl-ir Government used such a
:hip that they tried to sink it. They: made
several attempts to get po- s-rion of the
ship, and on one dairk night the'. got on
b_'arl. got p'.- es.-ion. scuttlL ii and sank it.
How-I.r. ..il, alter I. ing on the ocean bottom for
years, she was raised and taken back to
Englaiiil. Thpr-. she was fitted out for a voy-
:i. across the Atlantic Ocean. For ninety-
:-i< cl.-' she breasted the wind and waves
lif the Atlanti- and finally reached America
in safet'.. She has been on exhibition at the
l.:o'ling seaports in the United Si;tt,.-' for the
last three years, and is to be a feature of the
great Exposition at San Francisco.
A charge of twenty-five cents is made to
go on board. All the implements of torture
used years ago may still be seen. Bullet holes
from engagements the ship was evidently in,
are still plainly discernible near the water
line. The decks are badly grooved, having
Been made that way by the continuous roll-
ing of iron balls tied to prisoners' feet. Whip-
ping posts can still be seen. One of the most
awful implements of torture is the "Iron
Maiden." This cage of steel has the form of
a woman. Prisoners who would not give up
a confession were put in the "Iron Maiden"
and sharp steel prongs that are inset in the
walls forced a confession from them.
This ship is unique. It has all the things
that prolong death and make agony. The
fighting ships of today are also dealers in
death, but in another way. The modern war-
dhil.s convey a quick death, with little tor-
ture attached. The "Succe-." is entirely dif-
ferent from other classes of ships. It is use-
ful only as a relic of the barbarous past and
as an indication of the advanced present. To-
1. our ships have advanced very far over
tli,. old "uxies:," whereas centuries from
,,1;hl our present ships v.ill be as the "Suc-
cess" is to us now.
The Opening of The Panama
Late in July, 1914, the officials of the Pan-
ama Canal decided that the opening of the
Canal would be possible by the middle of
August. Therefore, the date set was August
15th. The steamer that was to have the
honor of being the ship that opened the
great waterway to the commerce of the world
was the American steamer "Ancon." She ar-
rived from New York on August 9th, and on
the morning of August 15th she was cleaned
and decked for the occasion. Those who were
invited to be on the "Ancon" during the voy-
age through the Canal had received their in-
vitations through Secretary of War Garrison.
Promptly at 8:00 A. M. the big steamer
slipped out of her dock and, because the
people present were conscious that one of
the most stupendous undertakings of the hu-
man intellect was about to be accomplished,
she steamed away without a bit of ceremony
and started on a voyage that had been waited
for the world over, for four centuries. She
moved slowly toward Gatun, where she was
locked through without any trouble, and
about 1:00 o'clock was nearing the great Cut
at Culebra. She passed safely through the
Cut and was at Pedro Miguel lock when the
first accident occurred. The electric mule
that was towing the boat snapped a cable,
which delayed the trip for a short period.
Upon leaving Pedro Miguel she started for
Nariilores, where the same accident occurred.
After she had completed the lockage at Mira-
flores, she started on the last lap of the jour-
ney. Upon arrival at Balboa, the Pacific end
of the Canal, she did not stop, but continued,
before turning, two miles out to sea. She
had completed the trip from deep water in
the Atlantic to deep water in the Pacific, and
the Canal was now open to the commerce of
The same day an American steamer, the
"Pleiades", started from Balboa, but only
reached Gatun before evening. Since that
day hundreds of ships have gone through the

Nov'enimb:r 11th is a memorable 1.Li to all
the boys and girls of the Cristobal school.
That day was set aside as tag day. All the
pupils received tags, which were to be sold
for ten cents, or as much more as the pur-
chaser wished to pay. The proceeds were
sent to the sufferers in Europe. The Red
Cross Society supplied the tags. The Y. M.
C. A. at Cristobal, or rather Secretary Page,
said that the grade that brought in the most
money in proportion to the number of pupils
would be suitably rewarded for its efforts.
All the pupils worked with great zest. One
would have thought the honor of the room
depended upon getting that reward. It was
fun, too. Colon was crowded with boys and
girls carrying tags. The pedestrians were
literally covered with tags. It was like a car-
nival. Everyone was laughing and joking,
and all were willing to help.
The entire school brought in $144.00. The
high school department brought in $5.1.0(i,
thus winning the prize-a picture.
A few days later a poster appeared on the
billboard of the Y. M. C. A. stating that mov-
ing pictures would be held that night for the
school children and their guardians. After
the moving pictures were over Mr. Page
made a speech, in which he presented them
with a beautiful picture of Glen Cairn Castle,
Ireland. Miss Ethel Turner, the member of
the school that had brought in the largest
amount of money-$15.00-represented the
room and received the picture for them.
The picture now hangs over the desk in the
high school room and is the pride of every one
in the room, for it belongs to all and was
earned by hard, though pleasant work.
Listen, Look, Stop.

Canal Zone High School are grateful to the
Division of Schools for the complete and up-
to-date equipment with which our l1. 't
lighted and well ventilated P1i -I. Labora-

The furniture consists of a long table of
the latest kindergarten type and six beauti-
I nily upholstered red plush chairs. The ir-
struments are of the best which modern -
chanics can produce and are made of the ie,
grade of tin, beautifully enameled with :
double coat of red rust. The scales and Ti!-

ductions and can weigh very small objects
with an error no greater than two pounds.
The pupils have taken great pride in their
laboratory and have succeeded in discover-
ing new laws governing the universe, which
have made the greatest of modern scientists

Jack, Harry and Elizabeth Walton lived in
the country. Their father had moved to the
country one year before. His city profes-
sions, which were doctoring and auctioneer-
ing, would not keep him and his family in
food and clothes, so he was forced to take up

a successful farmer, and a small fortune,
which came from the death of a rich uncle,
in the shape of $511,~0i0. come to him at the
When "Bob" Walton came to the farm, he
was surprised at the lack of experience a..ii
slackness shown by his brother in the man-
agement of the farm, and decided to stay a,'
set things straight as best he could.
The three children were very fond of their
uncle, for he was a handsome, stalwart and
generous man, and, when told that he was to
stay for a time, were very much pleased.
Before the fortune came to them, the Wal-
ton family lived without the luxuries of life,
as all spare money was spent on the farm.
Therefore, the boys had few books. When
"Uncle Bob" came, bringing his belongings
with him, the boys eagerly read all the books
that constituted his library. One book they
were especially delighted with, "Two Little
Savages." which told of two boys who lived
as Indians in the woods. One chapter very
much interested them, and this chapter de-
scribed the making of an Indian wigwam,
On Monday afternoon Jack and Harry were
-itting in the orchard, Jack reading one of
Uncle Bob's books, and Harry eating apples.
It would be well to describe the two boys
now, and I shall attempt to do so. Jack was
quick, impetuous and rather careless, but he
was good-natured to an extreme and very
bold and strong. He was a very poor stu-
dent. To other boys Jack was a first-class
model. He could run, jump, swim, play base-
ball, and climb better than any of them, and
he was always chosen as leader. He was
freckled and had a big. determined jaw,
which was not very attractive, yet somehow
he was always in favor with the girls, which
fact nobody could explain.
Harry, though a brother, had a very differ-
ent nature from Jack's. He was a deep
thinker and a fine student. He was not so
strong as Jack, but made up in determina-
tion what he lacked in strength, and came a
close second to Jack in all phy iical exploits.
He was handsome and good-natured, but was
somewhat of a dreamer and liked to be by
himself. Con-equiently, he was not such a fa-
vorite with the girls.
Ha\ ing des.cribedl the boys, we will now go
back to the story. When we left them the
boys were .ii loving themselves in the or-
chard. As Harry ate his apple he was evi-
dently in a brown study. All of a sudden he
exclaimed. "Say, Jack, don't you think that we
could play 'li i ii:' and li,-- in the woods like
Yan and Dan did in 'Two Little Savaye.'!?"
"Sure," .-aii .Ta..k. "I wonder why we didn't
think of that before."
That very day the boys went to their
father for pernli-i-ii to stay out one week.
"Well, 1i.vs. what do you want?" said Mr.
\'alton, gt-niall., as they came to him.
They told him, Harry acting as spokesman.
Uncle Bob. who was standing near, burst into
a loud laugh.
"Why," he said, "you'll come running back
at the end of one (iay."
Jack was net tled at his uncle's jesting tone,
and said hotly, "I'll bet I don't come home for
food once, and I'lll stay out a week. If you

ceed we'll come back to the farm as prison-
"Alright," said Mr. Walton, taking his son
at his word, "I'll notify the farm hands to
So it was settled, and by eight o'clock the
next morning they had gone out into the
woods to search for a suitable place on which
to erect their wigwam. They followed the
creek that ran through the farm and after a
while came across a high. grassy plain
through which the river flowed. Jack was de-
lighted at the fine location, and Harry pro-
nounced the trees to be oak and cedar.
Yan and Dan used elm bark for their wig-
wam, so the two boys stole back to the farm
and took some of the elm logs from the store-
house. Six logs of seven feet in length and
four feet in circumference gave them some
fine rolls of bark. The bark was then trans-
ported to the chosen spot and four poles cut,
about nine feet long.
Jack then went back to the farm house
and sneaked some hay wire. This procured,
the four poles were tied together and the
skeleton of a wigwam was made. The strips
of bark were then laid around the poles. Then
the dlitficlty of fastening them together
arose. Harry was for using a sharp oak stick.
as Yan and Dan had done, but Jack reminded
llHarry that that method had split the bark,
so he went home for a gimlet. But the gimlet
was little better than an oak stick and, when
the boys left their work to get dinner they
left the v.i.-.;iam nearly finished, but full of
holes and seams. After dinner they plugged
up the worst of the seams and cut a doorway
out of the bark. Over this they fastened a
piece of canvas so as to foi m a door.
They had brought food enough for only one
meal, so the next thing to do \%as to provision
the wigwam. So the boys .et out on their
quest, Harry to the kitchen andl Jack to the
Harry left his brother when in sight of the
farmhouse, and, avoiding the laborers, slipped
around the carriage house and got to the
kitchen door. Someone was inside: very like-
ly it was his mother, and Hirry crouched be-
hind the woodpile till his limb-s were numb.
After a while his mother left the room and
he cautiously tiptoed acro s the kitchen,
down the steps and into the cellar. He found
a pail and quickly filled it with the first things
he laid his hands on. Two pies, one bottle of
milk. a loaf, a small bottle of pickles, half a
glass of jelly, some eggs, and a newly baked
cake were all squashed in together, and the
adventurous 'Injun' started on his return
journey. He had climbed the steps, avoid-
ing all the creaking ones, and was just about
to open the door when he heard footsteps. It
was his mother coming back. Harry in-
stantly froze to the ground. He was as still
as a wax figure and kept so till his mother
left. He then quickly made his exit, not for-
getting to close the cellar door. But in his
haste he forgot to be careful, and ran plum)
into a farm laborer, knocking that worthy
head over heels. The shock threw Harry in
one direction and the pail in another. Pat
got up, dazed and angry, and Harry dived
into his pockets to find a coin to soothe the
Irishman's anger, but could not find a red
cent. Unable to parley, Harry decided on
the next best thing, which was to run and
this he did with great vigor. Pat made a
grab for him, but he slipped out of the fel-
low's grasp, and, sticking one leg behind him,
gave him a push back, which sent him on the
ground. Harry then made good his escape,
not forgetting the pail. Pat jumped up and
yelled, "Hey, come back here, ye spalpeen,
else begorra, I'll get the whip after ye." But
Harry only ran the faster, and, when he ar-
rived breathless at the wigwam, he found
Jack already there, sitting on the grass de-
vouring his spoils.
Harry showed Jack the contents of the pail,
but, alas, what was left in the pail was an
unrecognizable mass of cake, pie, eggs, milk,
jelly, pickles and glass. It was now supper
time, and the boys managed to eat a little of
the mixture found in the pail. They also
finished the fruit which Jack had procured.
Jack then proposed going to bed, and they
spread out the blankets they had brought
along. It was now about dark, so they lit the
"Hm, very un-Indian-like," said Harry,
"Well, go ahead and make one by your own
method," said Jack, dryly.
Harry was silent, but he was resolved that
some day he would make a fire by rul.lbing
sticks, as all good Indians did.
It was now getting cold, and the boys hud-
dled around their fire. But very soon the
wigwam began to fill with smoke. It refused
to go out of the hole meant for it, but was
content with staying inside. Soon tears
streamed down their cheeks, they began to
choke, and Jack made a dash for the outside,
with Harry a close second.
Once outside, the mosquitoes began to at-
tack them, and it was a question which they
preferred, the smoke or the insects, the
mosquitoes or the cold.
"I move we go inside ag.iin." said Harry,
as he slapped a mosquito on his arm.
So they crawled inside the i. ;ni again.
The smoke had partly left, some out of the
doorway, and some through the many cracks
in the bark. So they kicked out the fire and
huddled up in their blankets.
But their misfortunes had only begun.
They had just given up fighting the insects
and mosquitoes when it suddenly began to
rain and blow. The wind whistled in the
trees, strange cries were heard, and the rain
came through the igwa;m with increased
force. It was pitch dark, and the strangr.
weird cries which came from the woods sent
chills down their backs. The storm increased
in violence, the lightning flashed brilliantly,
and the thunder was terrific. The climax
came when the frail wigwam was blown
down and the boys were nearly smothered by
One of the logs hit Harry on the head, and,
putting up his hand, he felt a great, bleeding
lump. He went down to the creek, which was
now a swirling, rushing flood of water, and
bathed his head.
It went against the grain to go home and
be jeered at by Uncle Bob, but there was
nothing else to do, so they gathered up what
was left of their belongings and turned their
steps homeward. The path lay alongside the
river and was very muddy and slippery, and
Jack suddenly slipped and fell into the waters.
Harry was frightened, as he thought that
Jack would surely drown, but Jack called out
to his brother and told him that he would let
the river carry him down to the farm. Harry
ran along the bank and, when he came to the
farm, helped Jack ashore.
The two drenched, dejected boys then
turned towards home and were met on the
way by their Uncle Bob, sent out by an anxi-
ous mother to look for them. Thus, the two
little "Injun" boys, sadder but wiser, were es-
corted home by him, and here ends the ad-
ventures of the Two Little Indians, having
agreed that it was much plai-:,iil.'.l- to read of
their experiences than to put them into actual

reputation tor interesting stories, I eagerly
acquiescedd, and this is what he told me.
Many years ago there lived in Westburg a
Piper by the name of Davis. Close by dwelt
two men who were always known as the
"Christians" on account of their great piety.
One was a wool comber, the other a weaver.
The piper had been a native of Holland and
played the most entrancing music on his
flageolet, often beguiling children from their
paths as they went to school, maidens from
their accustomed duties, and even the men
from their labors. Such music was accounted
wicked and imiiin articles of the Penman
Cnme out agd inst the innocent piper.
One f .rening a he wandered aimlessly on
the More. playing his flute and listening to
the song of the nightbirds as they trilled
"C(arkeet." "Carkeet." suddenly he heard (or
vz a- it imagination ?) a sound as of rapid foot-
step-. Looking behind, he spied two forms
gliding toward. hiim. He was rooted to the

"\here are those whom you beguiled with
your music?" sail the same sepulchral voice.
"Thi Kim-belle and many others whom you
spirited away .'" "En-sey." said the other,
"give me that Engel-ke which is supposed to
unlock the iail where you have them con-
fined." At this the Piper, who could Hollo-

of terror, ran, never stopping until he
reached the town of Trask, in the district of

On Friday, February 26, the members of
the Car al Zone High School had their annual
outing at T',ago Island, twelve miles from
Panama. The launch "Grace" w\is etgagel
by the boys to carry the merry cr',l'. i tn a:nt
fro. It was a most happy dy. spent in swim-
ming and dancing. A most delicious picnic
lunch was provided by the girls of the school.
It was a tired, but merry group of boys and
girls that reached their homes about eighty-
thirty that evening.
This year's class has chosen ring. instead
of pins. The rings of their choice are of the
signet style, heavy, with a plain shank and
with the top done in a special design. The
words. "Canal Zone High School" and.their,
"Perseverantia vincit" are done in relief let-
ters. I'hey have chosen a most attractive de-
sign. which was made by Warren & Co. of
New York City.
At three o'clock on the ;ft'tr:-rnioi of Fri-
day, March nineteenth, the Senior Class gave
a farewell spread in the Ph.-i,; Lazoratory
for Esther Francis. who -ailell for the States
on the next day. IMuh distress was felt at
her departure, for she was a most popular
member of the class. she had many frienlkl
and her work was alN.ay-s well done. Th.-
Seniors are especially glad that she will
receive her diploma frmni the Canal Zone
High School, as she had already secured her
thirty-two credits at the end of the tl -i
semester of the present year.
"The Strange Adventures of .:\l s Brown"
was the play chosen and presented by the
High School last year. '.i. pirt'ormances
were given, five of which were held at the
Y. M. C. A. Clubhouses on the Canal Zone,
and one at the N.atinial Theatre in Panama.
Tl'~ efforts of the boys and girls were quite
worth while, for the play was a success both
from a dramatic and a financial point of view.
