Thm Capuleta and Montagues,
mighty families of Verona, are
MMUy enemies, ttomeo, son oj
the House of Montagues, fails in
love with Juliet, daughter of the
Capuleta. They marry in secret.
The afternoon of their icedding
day, Romeo meets Tybalt,
Julie fs cousin, and leader of the
Capulet henchmen. Tybalt tries
to force a duel upon Borneo who
will have none of it because of
his marriage to Juliet; Tybalt is
now his kinsman as well as hers.
The latter then turns to duel
with Mercutio, friend of Borneo,'
and kills him. Borneo avenges
Mercutio's death by duelling Ty-
bolt whom he kills. The Prince
of Verona banishes Romeo, exil
ing him forever from the city.

Romeo aped through the darkness
to Juliet's garden. By a rope ladder
hung therefrom he ascended the
balcony and called to her.
She raised her weeping face from
the bed and listened, with a cry
she arose and ran to meet him.
They held each other close, and
then, with a long drawn sigh, she
led the way Into her chamber.
And the hours which had made
the day too long, now sped on
wings. Too soon the early morning
light filtered through the drawn
curtains. Romeo knew he must obey
the Friar's warning or all would
be lost Tenderly he released him
self from Juliet's embrace.
"And wilt thou be gone?" she
asked. "It is not yet near day."
A bird sang outside her window.

pleaded "and not the lark that

"More light and light it grows! '
"Madame!" called her nurse soft

The day is broke. Be wary."
The lovers clasped each other In
a last embrace. "Window," cried
Juliet, "let day In and let life out."
"Farewell, farewell," murmured
Romeo and kissed her long.
With arms entwined they walked
out onto the balcony. And then
quickly, as if to tear himself away

question was addressed to Mr. Ruten

her way to the postoffice." "That is
Miss Pique", answered Mr." Ruten
berg. ."And", he volunteered, "she is
a very. fine young woman", "Pique?"
questioned a woman standing near.
"I didn't know that was her name."
Somebody wanted . to know at this
point whether or not the young lady
was a visitor in town, and so on.
"No"," explained -Mr. ' Rutenberg,
"Miss Pique, is the young'' lady who
has charge of the vacation Bible
School around at the Baptist Church."
- "Well", remarked the questioner,
"that certainly does not sound like
the name I -read in the Perquimans
Weekly, which carried some stories
about the young lady's work Miss
Poplin was the name."
There was a general laugh as Mr.
Rutenberg, somewhat chagrinned,
admitted the name was Poplin and
