Little Women. My favorite book is "Little Women,' written by Louisa May Alcott many beginning because they always made the best of things. They had little to live on, but were always cheerful and happy. Another reason why I like this book is the sacrificing helpfulness of two of these girls when their father was away at war. He became very ill and a message was sent to Mrs Marsh to come at once All the girls except Jo helped to get things ready for Marmee, as they called their mother. Instead she went off down the street. The afternoon passed and Jo came in bringing her mother twenty-five dollars. They all asked her where she had gotten the money and the answer was taking off her hat. Joe had beautiful hair and she had gone to the barber shop and had " cut and had sold it for twenty-five dollars to send to her father. Beth x was always helping others When her mother was away with her father during the war, scarlet fever broke out , the commDnity and sns i u j rovc ueioeii tmu nine in iiursuiir me sick and a fever died b-by who had the scarlet in her arms. She went home and it was found that she had scarlet fever. When she got over this she wns never the same and two or three years later she quietly passed away. Later Jo became a great author and married a professor and then hal a school for boys. Meg; the eldest, was also a fine had two children. A 1 1 1 same talent. MARIETTA WAY. Sixth Grade. The Man Without a Country. The Man Without a Country is one of the best stories in American liter- tf,,! 8tory wi .hout valuing more highly the country in which he lives. The Man Without a Country tells about a young officer who was in dvced to turn traitor to his country and how he wished that he might duced him to turn traitor to his coun try. Nolan was brought before the courts in the great treason trial in Richmond and proved guilty enough. When the president of the court ask ed him if he had anything to say that Showed that he -had-Aeen faithful to the United States! I wish I may never hear the name again! The judge was terribly shocked. He called the court into a private room and returned in fifteen minutes with a face like a sheet to say "Pris oner, the court decides you shall never hear the name again." From that moment, Sept. 23, 1807, until the day he died, May 11, 1SC3, he never heard the name again. About the last words Philip Nolan said were "Remember, hnv tbnt h. hjnd officers and government and people even, there is the country her self, your country, and that you be long to her as you belong to your mother. The reason this story is called the Man Without a Country is because he was exiled from it and had no rela tions with it. I like this story because it teaches everyone to hdnor his coun try. HUGH STAMEY. ' Seventh Grade. The Man Without a Country. The Man Without a Country telis about a man who is a traitor to his country. It teaches one never to curse his country because it will not do any good. When Nolan came be fore the court for doing wrong he cried out: "Curse the United States! I wish I may never hear the name of the United States again!" He should hae taken his punish ment instead of cursing his country. No country likes a traitor whether it is for another country or not. Al most the same case happened to Benedict Arnold who turned traitor to America and helped England, but who lived to realize that even the country he helped had no respect for a traitor. I like this book because it is very interesting and about our own coun- try. When a man is sent awav from I Vila nAiintvif J- I .1 U . n t P-nisnment Presbyterian church gave a delight- than death. It the same as if one ful socia, at the church TueS(, Jhf were run away from home never to; Nnmer0U8 games and contes s return or hear of ,t. ;enjoyed durj tfc iuin was a nne young officer and he could have made good in the Amer ican Army if he hadn't lost his head. When he said he didn't want to hear of his country any more, his wish was granted and he was put on a ship and carried away where he could in vo his wishes. When he was getting old and h's time had almost come for him to die, he regretted that he couldn't take back everything he did. He knew after his punishment that if he had By A. B. CHAPIN I the chance he would live a better life and stick to his country und fight till he died for it. Nolan made a talk to a bov and told him to stick to his country n matter what happened to him.
