JK-Ca THE PINEHURST OUTLOOK IfiBPSfiSiS 9
Once we went down to the place whero the
colored women were feeding the caddies, and
another negro woman came along to the colored
woman we were talking to, and said: "I see you
are obtaining white guests" meaning entertain
ing. The place was very sooty and smoky
and the woman said: "You never could get the
colic here"; and she went on telling how when
any of her grandmothn's children were sick,
her grandmother used lo put a Utile water in an
old kettle and smoke a saucer over the lire, and
pour the water into the sauce r;toen light her pipe
and blow the smoke in the saucer for the chil
dren to drink, whenever they had the colic.
THE CKOW FAMILY
By Albert Tufts
Once upon a time a mother crow and her mate
were making a nest. When they had made it,
the father ilew away to get something for her to
eat, He came back soon and in his beak, he bad
an egg for her to eat. ile gave it to her and she
ate it up. As it was almost night-time the father
sat on the tree beside her and went to sleep.
When the mother bird called the father to her
and showed him an egg; he flew away again to
get her something to eat. As he flew along, he
heard a bang, a shot hit him on the wing, and he
fell down to itie ground. A man picked him up
and carried him away to his house, put him in
a cage and shut the door. The next morning the
man gave him some water and corn to eat. He
waited ten days and on tiie tenth day the man
opened the cage and he flew away to the nest
on the tree, and saw his mate was almost dead.
He flew to a brook and got her some water, and
then got an egg and gave it to her.
The mother then showed him five baby crows,
and one of them was stronger than the others.
The father crow flew away for something to
eat, and when he came back he gave the mother
an egg, and she gave it to all of the little ones,
and i hen the little ones went to sleep. The next
mornin, when the little ones awoke, they called
for food, then the father and mother flew away
to get it. They got an egg and a fish for the lit
tle ones. The next day the mother called the
little ones to her on the limb beside her, and
then the father flew away and the mother show
ed the little ones how to sit on the limb.
When the father came back he had an egg.
He sat on another limb and called them, and
the strongest of them flew to father crow, and
he gave the egg to the little crow. The crow
then flew to another tree, and then to the nest, and
got an egg out of the nest and ate it and went to
sleep. The next day he flew away and away,
until he came to a lake and then he sat down on
a pine tree. As he was sitting on the tree, he
heard a loud bang, and he saw a man, and then
another bang, and a shot hit the limb on which
he eat, and he fell to the ground.
The man picked him up and carried him away
and when he got home the man put him in a
cage and left him there until next day. On the
next day the man came 'and picked the crow
up, and he pecked him so hard that the man let
him go, aud the crow flew back and sat on a
rock in the lake.
There he saw a iUh and caught it in his beak
and ate it. Then a duck came down into the
water. The duck sat down on the water, and the
crow thought he would try it. As soon as he
hopped in and found it was cold, he tried and
tried to fly out, but he could not. He soon saw
that if he tried hard he would get to the land.and
he did, After he got out he saw another hen
crow sitting on the top of a tree and he flew to

Of all the pleasant days I have spent since I
came south, I enjoyed blackberrying the most.
We used to start early in the morning before it
got too hot. The berries get ripe about the first
of July. Sometimes we would not go far from
the house, and sometimes we would go about
three miles. We generally go berrying about
seven miles from Pinchurst. We find the best
berries near the swamps.
One day we went down by the depot, as there
were some blackberry bushes down there. There
is a lake near, so when we were tired we went
over by the lake to rest. One time we saw a lot
of turtles in the water. We used to get our arms
scratched so badly, that we used to wind cloth
around them, to protect them. When we were
out in the woods, and wanted a drink, we could
always find a brook where we could quench our
AN EXOITING BALL GAME

j cam ago was tne nrst time lever went

naturally for them. My brother who is a great

attending. The players practiced for one hour
before the game. New York had their first bat
because they were the visiting team. The first

the plate before the side was retired.
Then Cleveland 'came up, but they could not

pitcher, all three men striking out. The inning
euuea two to nothing, in New York's favor
The score remained the same until the end of
the eighth when with two men out the Cleve
land men rallied. Hlnchman was. given his
base on balls then Flick doubled and Hlnchman
went to third. Then Stovall was passed and the
bases were full. The grandstand was made of
wood and when thousands of people stamped it

Then the mighty Larry Lajoie stepped to the
plate and cleaned the bases with a three-bagger,
making the score three to two in favor of
Cleveland, and thus the game ended and I went
home very happy.
THE SONG THE WIND SINGS TO ME
By Esther Tufts
Oh wind ablowing all day long,
Oh w ind that sings so sweet a song I
Does the wind seem to you to have a song It
sings? To me it sings a sweet song. So sweet,
so sweet, it sings away. It sings a song about
the birds, the rivers, the rain, and all things It
sees. I cannot give you the real words, but it is
"Oh, sweet little child do listen to me, you are
so small. I see as I go along my road, the sea;
I pass over and help the boats sail, then I let go
their sails and they cannot move. Then4:j see
the tall trees and force them to bend to me.
When they refuse I break them down. Then I
come to a city. I sweep it clean, throwing the
dust around. Then an old maid I meet. Off
comes her hat for the fun of it; and you ought
to see her run. My l My !
"Come with me my pretty maid cornel Come!
Come sweet little bird, I love you so. Thou
shouldn't' have wings for thouj aren't an
That is what it said, sweet wind !
LOST IN THE MOUNTAINS
By Stacy Robeson
When I was up in the mountains I had lots of
sport. Once when I was hunting with Rudolf
Day, we were coming home after a hard after
noon hunt. When we got ba ck to the house we
found that Rudolf had lost his mitten so we
went back to find it. We were so intent on find
ing it that we didn't know just where we were
in the forest. If you once get lost it is hard to
find your way back. Finally we found the mit
ten, but we knew we would have quite a time
getting back again and at that minute it began
to snow and to get dark.
We tried to follow our tracks back, but they
were covered up with snow. Pretty soon we
heard somebody calling to us. We went to a
tree and climbed it, but we could not see any
thing. I came down and went on a little farther
and we saw the clearing and the house, but
when I was lost I never thought I would get
THE FIRST TIME I EVER WENT SKATING
By Cabot J, Morse, J r.
It was a very cold day in February that we
were all going skating after school. I could not
skate and I was not going, but George said he
could not go because he bad a cold, and I bor
rowed his skates for the afternoon. When I got
in the middle of the pond the ice broke and I
went in. All the other boys came to help me
out, but the ice broke again and they went in
too. I was the first one to get out for I was
lucky enough to have a hockey stick. I went
home and my clothes nearly froze on me on the
way. That was the first time I ever went, and
I now go every winter.
