Last month I went to the Indians
Fair. I saw a lot of Indians. One I
saw was Standing Deer shoot his
bow and arrow. He had been winning
for eight years. I saw the chief of
the Indians. Indian women was mak
ing pots and other things. When we
got back to Sy.lva, I went tc stay with
my daddy at Wittle. I played with the
boys around there. We were playing
and I fell off a wagon and stuck my
knife into ray leg.
had a dog and his name was
Jack.. One day when I was going to
town, mother said take your dog
with you. So I took him, when I got
over there he got away from me and
got into & fight with R. V. Galloway's
dog. Jack ran through R. V. Gal
loway's lags and knocked him down.
THE NINTH GRADE
The ninth grade entertained the
audience at Rosman Friday. The
characters were, Pauline Moore,
Beatrice Woodard and Leota Ran
dolph under the supervision of Mias
Minnie Jean Anderson. Leota Ran
dolph played the piano while Pauline
.Moore and Beatrice Woodard sang.
Eva Pharr did the announcing.
Teacher: What is growing in Ar
Johnny: Don't knew.
Teacher: What are your socks
Johnny: Pa's old sweater.
The seventh grade has been tak
ing agriculture. Mr. Corbin has been
teaching us. We have a little book
which is called, "Purina Poultry
Book." We take agriculture twice a
week, on Tuesday and Thursday. We
are studying about chickens. We
first took up about The Man, The
Hen and The Feed. We found that
The Man was the manager, The Hen
the factory, and The Feed was the
raw material. We then studied how
"much feed went for the egg and how
much feed went for the body weight.
We have since discussed the follow
ing topics: "How to get eggs in win
ter," and how much hens need to
eat." "How to keep their house warm
and comfortable." How much room j
the chickens should have. How much [
room for the mash hopper, and why
we keep electric lights in our hen
house. We see much interest in this
IMPROVEMENTS MADE AT
OUR BUILDING .
Some time ago some men began j
painting the windows, the doors, and j
other wood work of our building. |
They have also painted the black I
boards in every room. With as many !
children as there are in the Elerc-j
entary school, we should be able to
keep our building in good order. We
ought to feel "proud of our building
and help the janitor and teachers in
every way we can to keep our build
ing looking neat and attractive as
On every month the seventh gracfe
has to make booklets. We go to the
library on Tuesday's. We read the J
books through, then report on the
best story. We have to make a report
on every month for six months. We
have reported on two books , this
year so far. We have some real good '
books in our library. The first book
report I made was "The Girl Who
Heard Voices," it was a real good
book. It was a history story and we
all like history stories. The second
report I made was "The Magic
Flower." It was better than the
other. It was about a sick woman
and her little boy Arnold and how
he helped her.
A WALNUT TREE
The stories of trees are sometimes
aiike, but are expressed in d^erent
This certain tree stands by a
branch near the house of a old gray
headed man. The old man says that
he remembers when the large tree
was only a small plant. Some of the j
people say that the tree was brought
from England. No one knows what I
this tree has gone through. There j
have been many birds nests in the
top of the tree and many a storm i
has' she gone through.
JOAN OF ARC
When Joan of Are was a young
girl there wj>s constant warfare in
France. Battles were fought, towns
and cities were burned, and the peo
ple robbed. Joan, as she tended her
sheep, longed to save her country
from the soldiers of the enemy, who
were causing so much trouble. She
dreamed about savins: France and

Banner, and lead the French Army
to Victory." With this message in
her mind Joan went to the King and
said, "Gracious King, God has sent
me to deliver France from her ene
mies. I pray you, let me lead forth
the Army.': The King was amazed
at her request and refused to grant
it, but Joan persisted. Finally, after
she had visited him a second time,
the King believed that she had been
sent by God, so he gave her permis

?white armor and mounted on a
piancing white horse, Joan led the
soldiers forth. Because she was both
wife and brave and because the
soldiers had confidence in her, she

from her enemies. But Joan herself
was taken prisoner. She was accused
of witch craft by evil men and was

MY COW ?
I have a cow of my own. We have
] about eighteen acres af meadow for
our cows and she grazes on that eve
ry day. She is a yellow Jersey and she
gives almost three gallons of milk
which is very good, but the butter is
much better, I think. I feed and milk
try cow every night and morning.
OUR FIRST BASKETBALL GAME
Friday at noon, the ninth and tenth
grade boys played the first game of
our basketball tournament. It was a
very close game and unfortunately
they had time for but one half, the
ninth grade was a good match for the
tenth grade and the tenth won
by the small score of 10 to 12. Other
games of this tournament will be
scheduled this week.
I have a dear little pet
I haven't told you about yet.
It is a pretty kitty cat.
What do you think of that?
My kitten is black and gray.
It sleeps all night and plays all day.
It catches all the naughty mice.
Now don't you think that's very nice?
VISITING THE INDIANS
Last Sunday I took a trip with my i
uncle and aunt to the Indian Reser- ;
vation. We went by way of Cashiers, i
Highlands, Glenville, Cullowhee and j
Sylva. The scenery from the highway
was wonderful, for the trees were all
dressed in their beautiful autumn
The Indian children were amusing '
to me, as I had never been around
Indians. They dress just about as we
do. Some of the Indian bo>s sang for
us and of course we enjoyed that. |
I saw some baskets and bright col- i
ored beads which the Indians had i

Just across the hall from our room
is a room where old desks used to be
stored. That room looks much more
pleasant now, because the fourth
has moved into it. We are glad to
have them for our neighbors.
Fal! is my favorite season of the
year. We gather in good things to eat,
both vegetables and fruits. We also
harvest grain. Everything looks very
beautiful at this time, but nothing is
more beautiful than the leaves with
all their bright colors. Squirrels can
be found hiding nuts for the cold

HOW PEOPLE USED TO TRAVEL
Our great great grandfathers did
not have trains, automobiles and air
planes to ride in. Their roads were
narrow and muddy. Sometimes the
roads were so muddy that wagons,
stage coaches and horses could not
even travel them.
I We can travel very fast in the
train. The seats in the train are very
nice and soft. We can travel across
our country in the parlor car. We can
sleep and eat in the train and be as
comfortable as at home.
| Automobiles v.-ill go very fast .They
are run by gasoline. Our great great
grandfathers would have "been s'Jr- ;
prised to sec a car traveling over the j
road thirty or forty miles an hour
He would have been surprised for
they could only travel very -slowly in

THE STAGE COACH
Long ago, people used to travel in
stage coaches. A stage coach is a big
wagon drawn by six or eight hor3es.
It took the people three or four days
to make a long Journey of about for
THE EGYPTIAN WIZARD
I have often heard of people be
ing hypnotized but never saw any
one ever hypnotized, until about a
year ago. It was an "Egyptian Wiz
ard" who hpynotiz?d fcimse'f. It was
his 225 time that he had buried him
self alive and always came out
alive so far. HiB age was 43 years
but he looked like 26 instead. He was
buried in a grave 10 feet long by five
feet wide. There was boards put
crosswise so the dirt would not be
on his body, then they started
throwing dirt on at about 1:15
o'clock at 1:30 they had covered him
with dirt. Everbody left them to
come back at 6:80 to uncover h;ra.
When they uncovered him there was
an ambulance waiting to convert
him to the Theatre where he was to
perform various other feats. It took
two men to puil his hands from his
face. He came back to life. So ended
his 226th marvelous feat.

THE CARE OF OUR BODIES
The children in our room are try
ing to keep in good health. We must
remember to brush our teeth, comb
cur hair, wash our faces, hands and
bodies. We are going to make health
charts. If we keep the health rules
for a week we get a red star. When
I we get four red stars we get a gold
one. I am trying to keep clean and
healthy, I hope every one else will.
Hallowe'en is coming. The witches
will fly to the moon on brooms. They
will fly through the air like birds. It
is time to make Jack-O'-Lant era's for
Hallowe'en. We have had one draw
ing lesson for Hallowe'en.
We have been reading about In
dians. We are reading of Pocahontas
today. This lesson has many hard
words in it. We have read about Hia
watha. We all liked it very. much. In
dian stories are very interesting ones.
A LOST GIRL
Once a little girl went into the
woods to pick blackberries. Guess
what happened? She got lost. It was
nearly dark. She could not find her
way back home.
The little girl saw a car track and
followed it. Soon she reached home.
Her mother and father were glad to
see her back home.
Once I had a canary, bird. One
morning the cat came into the room.
It saw the bird and got it.
I miss my canary bird.
Mr. Reece's house burned down last
night. It made a great big blaze. My
daddy helped to get the things out
of the house. They had to bring them
out of the windows. The children had
to jump out of the windows, too.
