Rosman Elementary School News A SKUNK HUNT Cne night J. B. Whitmirs, L. C. Whitmire and I decided to go opos sum hunting. We left the house and went up a hollow about a 100 yards, when we hoard the dogs barking. We ran to them but they had already run in the direction of the house. We went after tfcem. When we got there the member.3 of the house were alarm ed. They said that there was an awful scent under the house. We knew what was up. The dog had run a polecat under the floor and were tiying to get to skunk. In the meantime the scen&wjras growing worse. We knew that something had to be done quick. We grabed an ax and knocked a plank loose and thinking we could kill it easy then. When we got tho plank loose the skunk jumped out and van to a topstack. We followed it up, turned the topstack over and the cogs killed it. QU1NTON CRANE, ** """ Seventh grade. THE SMOKING HABIT It has been proved that ninety boy's ?ut of every one hundred who fail'in school smoke tobacco. Smoking not only hurts a boys mind but his mor als also. Ono reason boys take up smoking is not because they like it, but because their schoomlates do it, or else he hasn't courage to stand alone and not smoke: If once the hab it is formed it seems impossible to break it. Boys who are athletes are not allowed to smoke. Why? Because it makes them nervous and the body cannot be strong and smoke. If smok ing is started before you are twenty one years of age the body is stunted of its growth. We should all try to build strong bodies and avoid the smoking habit. EARL DUNCAN, Seventh grade WINTER Winter brings us two of the great est days of joy And then you will hear the cheeTS ox every girl and boy. Thanksgiving, which we share, For the Pilgrims that stood there. With a table loaded with all it could bear, I Christmas carrys us back to a lit tle manger. Where was once a little stranger. But was found by the wise man and whose word is spread in all the land Whck is now well known in every place and home. ANNICE WHITMIRE, Seventh grade. THE FIRST THANKSGIVING White people came to our land and lived among the Indians. Some of these were called Pilgrims. The Pil grims crossed the ocean in a ship called the "Mayflower". It took them a long time to crcss the ocean. There were boys and girls on this ship. And two little babys were born on it. The little girls liked to play with the babys. It was winter when the Pilgrims landed, and they had no home. The men went to work to build log houses. The oeople had to sleep on the ship until the men could build the houses. Often the Pilgrims had not enough food. The food that they brought with them had given out. At last spring came and warm sun shine. One day an Indian came to see the Pilgrims. He came again and brought other Indians with him. The Indians in many ways they gave the white men corn and meat. And they showed them how to plant corn, beans and pumpkins. Fall came and the Pil grims had a good harvest. They were very happy and very thankful. They said, "let us have a Thanksgiving xlay." So they set a day for a Thanks givmg feast: They asked the Indians to come to this feast. The Indians brought deer meat, wild turkeys and nuts. The Pilgrim women backed turkeys, cooked fish and made pumpkin pies and cake. They set the table under the trees. The white men and the Indians ate together. This was our first Thanks giving. CAROLYN GARREN, Seventh grade. MY DOG My dog's name is Spot. I namot him this because of a spot of black which he has on his back. This win ter I am going to take him hunting ?with me and train him.

RAY WINCHESTER, j Sixth grade. ' OCTOBER I think that in many ways October is the loveliest month in the year.: Fro?t comes about the first of the month and the leaves turn red, yellow, ors.nge, and brown. The mountains are at their prettiest. The chestnuts and chinquapins, walnuts and hick orys are dropping their nuts, and as we walk through the weeds we see the , squirrels running to arid fro gather ing food for the winter. The asters and goldenrods are in bloom, the last flowers of the year. The red and yel low apples are hanging on the trees. ? There are so many beautiful things j to see and enjoy in October that {everyone should be happy. LUCILLE GALLOWAY, Sixth grade. THANKSGIVING When Ma begins to whistle And size the chicken up, And feed the biggest turkey; Why, even the little pup Knows it's most Thanksgiving. You fsel it in the air And smell it in the kitchen Arid cellar, everywhere; You take your other seasons And go your joyous way, But leave me in Ma's kitchen, around Thanksgiving. GENEVA PETIT Sixth grade. AN ACCIDENT Last Friday afternoon my dog was struck by a car that was passing the house. He was hit by the axle and 'knocked unconscious for a while. My| brother saw the accident happen and j ' ran out and picked him up. In a lit- ) tie while he came to himself and be- j 'gan to wag his tail and play. I cer-j ? tainly hope he has learned a lesson and will stop running after cars. | RAY WINCHESTER, 1 Sixth grade. I j " FATHER , WE THANK THEE" ' We are thankful for father and : mother. To us they are kind and good. ? We should love them well and obey them. We are thankful for brothers and sisters, for friends, food and clothing for health through all the year, and for schools and churches. For all these blessings we are very ; thankful today. EVA ISRAEL, Fifth grade. THANKSGIVING | i Once more the harvesting sea?on has passed, bins and shelves are filled with an assortment of foods for win-' ter use and we are turning our thoughts to Thanksgiving day. Some no doubt, look forward to the turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pies, which are usually prepared on that day; but we should think of it as a day in which tc really thank God for his many blessings to us. ; On Dec. 21, 1620 the Pilgrims land- , ed at Plymouth. The colonists suffer- i jred much from cold and hunger be-j ! fore they could get their houses built. 'Many of them died but the survivors kept stout hearts and worked faith . fully. The Indians were very kind to t them and taught them how to plant j 'corn. ! By autumn the health of the col onists had been restored, a good sup- 1 ply of wild turkeys, deers, and fish (had been secured; and enough food' 'for the coming winter had been laid ?by. 1 Then William Bradford, governor 'of the colony, set a day for Thanks j giving to God for his blessings to the .colonists. This is why we have one . day in each year set aside as Thanks- . giving day. D. H. WINCHESTER, Fifth grade.

THE STORY A TURKEY TOLD \\ I was once a big fat turkey at'.] farmer Green's farm. _ On the day before Thanksgiving,] day a man came to the farm to buy a turkey for his Thanksgiving dinner. He picked me out of course for I was the largest one in the lot. After chasing me around for awhile they caught me and put me in a box". But I did get to peck the man on the hand to show him that I didn't j like him. When he got home be took' me out of the box and started to kill me. I gave a big flutter and was scon out of his hands running through the fields as fast as I could go. I looked back and the man was coming after me, so I hid in some bushes and weeds. He hunted for me until dark and then went home. 1 stayed in the bushes until early next morning, then started for home. I wandered through fields and woods all day. I arrived at my home just at dark and crept in my old roosting place to go to sleep, wondering what ' a certain man and his wife had for Thanksgiving dinner. RUTH RICE, Fourth grade. WHY WE CELEBRATE THANKS GIVING The first year the Pilgrims carne to America they planted corn and nyuie a good crop. After their crops were gathered and stored away forf winter use then gave a great feast, j They gave this feast because they ' were thankful for their great harvest, j This was our first Thanksgiving day 1 and we should always celebrate this day and give thanks for the many things we have received during the past year.

Colds first day, Headaches or Neuralgia in 30 minutes. 666 SALVE for HEAD COLDS. Most Speedy Remedies Known l THE PRAYER CORNER (From the filet of long ago ) YOU ? Who ere you anyway? "You are a ghost," Br. Crane says. "No man ever saw you, ever will see you, even as no man hath seen God at any time." "You are a FORCE, as perplexing as electricity, as actual yet as baff ling a? gravitation, as potent arid as ur.definable as heat" While you dwell itt with this body it digests, assimilates, exercises, is pleased and pained. When you go away it rots, or decays. "While you are with this brain it thinks, remembers, imagines. When you go away it operates no more, it is no better than putty." "Where did you come from? No- ' body knows, though some guess. Out of the vast nowhere, hidden realms of the unborn, all about us as the circumambient ether, the encompass ing air." "Where are you going to? Nobody ' knows, though many guess. Back to that infinite nowhere, into which lives power dailv, hourly, as an un ceasing cataract." A PRAYER Gracious Father, Thou hast reveal ed Thy self gloriously in Jesus Christ, the son of Thy Love. In Him we have found Thee- or rather are found of Thee. By His life, by His words and deeds, by His trials and sufferings: we are cleansed from Sin and rise in- i to holiness. For in Him , Thou hast made discolsures of Thine Inmost Be ing, and art drawing us i::to fellow ship with Thy Life. As '.ve stand be- 1 neath His cross or pass with Him into the Garden of His Agony, it is Thy Heart that we see unveiled, it is the! passion of Thy Love yearning over the sinful the wandering, seeking that it may save them. No man hath seen Thee at any timev but out of the unknown has come the Son of man to declare Thee, and now we know Thy Name. When we call Thee Father the mysteries of existence are not so terrible, our burdens weigh less heavily upon 'JS, cur sorrows ore touched with joy. Thy son has brought the comfort that we need, the comfort of know ing that in all our afflictions Thoa are afflicted, that in Thy grief our lesser griefs arc all contained. Let the light which shines in His Face, shine into our hearts to give us the knowledge of Thy glory, to scatter the darkness of fear, of wrong, it remorse, of foreboding, and tc con strain our lives to finer issues of peace and power and spiritual aer vice. And this prayer we offer in Christ's name, Amen. ? C. D. C.
