Skating on Hinton’s Lake
Hundreds Taking Advantage of These
Fine Moonlight Nights.
You old fossils who sit over
the register, or near the radi
ator, or with your feet in the
oven of the kitchen stove and
grouch about the cold weather
—come out of it. The world is
still young if you will but look,
and happy, too, if you only
knew it.
Pull your old sweater on and
get out in this bracing air and
walk a mile briskly. TJreath
deeply and open up the dust
clogged air cells of your lungs.
Get the blood to bounding
through your veins again, and
you will be slapping somebody
on the shoulder and saying,
“line weather, old man, Merry
Christinas,” or something
equally as indicative of feeling
tine. You can't heat the inside
by getting hot on the outside.
There’s nothing to that system.
For some reason, the Lord
only knows what, a lot of old
folks concluded to take a lot of
young folks skating Monday
night. ”1 know I’ll freeze to
death,” said one of the old ones
as they put blankets and robes
and furs into the spring wagon
and started for Hinton’s lake.
What a night it was! The ice
was like the proverbial glass.
The shadows of the skaters in
the moonlight were black
against the smooth surface as
the shadows of the trees are
black upon the snow. There
must have been two hundred
skaters gliding over the lake.
The air was filled with the
shout of the youngsters and the
merry laugh of the many who
enjoyed the discomfiture of those
whose feet ascended and whose
bodies descended with a thud.
A long string of high school
students came swinging across
the lake, the ring of their skates
keeping time to ‘‘The Good Old
Summer time" that they were
singing. But it wasn’t the good
old summer time. It was a win
ter's night, 'tis true, and the
moonlight awoke thousands of
glistening diamonds on the ice
and the frosy banks, but it was
springtime, nevertheless, for the
rosy cheeked boys and girls
who care free and happy and
hand in hand glided across the
surface of the lake.
“Just listen to those kids
singing about the summer time
on a cold December night,” said
one ot the old ones in partial
disgust. “Forget it, ’’ said the
lady who knew. “Just put on
your skates and run a race with
that 12 year old boy of yours.
I'll bet he can beat you around
the lake.” This started the boy
and there was nothing to it but
the race. Around the lake they
went, tue night wind whipping
the blood to their faces and the
exertion sending the blood
racing through their veins. The
boy was ahead a little as they
swung panting to the starting
place. “How about it?” asked
the one who knew. ‘‘F i n e,
splendid," was the reply. “Get
on your skates and come out
here. This is the best fun ever.”
And as long as the kids wanted
to skate, until the moon was
dropping towards the west they
skated and forgot all about
freezing, forgot all about reg
isters and radiators and kitchen
stoves. In fact were just hap
py and young again.
Of course, wnen they started
home they were tired and hot
and bundled up again in robes,
and furs and blankets. The
brown fields of the valley were
a fairyland in the moonlight.
The lights of the city shone
clear and cold in the distance.
The old ones were quiet, but
the youngsters were prattling
and bragging about their prow,
ess as skaters. And so they
neared home. “We always sang
when we came home this way in
the years gone,’’ said the one
I who knew. “Let’s sing now,’’
said the children. “All right.”
said everybody, “you start it,’’
speaking to one of the old ones.
He waited a moment, and, with
out knowing that the one who
knew was smiling, started to
sing. “ n the Good Old Summer
A little sore in the morning?
No, not very. Anyhow they
went again the next night.
You Know Bill
Bill had a billboard. Bill also
had a hoard hill. Bill’s hoard bill
bored Hill so much that he sold
his billboard to pay his board bill,
and then Bill’s board bill no long
er bored Bill. Bill’s pjirI said she
coni In t see how Bill could have
a board bill and a billboard at the
same time. So she bored Bill so
much about his billboard and his
board bill that Bill finally had to
skip his board bill in order to keep
bis billboard.—Ex.

EDGAR W. COOK, Tecumseh, Nebr.
“When I enrolled in the Complete Architectural Course I was employed as a carpenter.
At present I am employed as a contractor and builder. My salary has increased from 17c to
<>0c per hour. I cannot speak too highly of the school and of the opportunity offered to every
one wishing to advance themselves.”
J. W. WICKLINS, Nebraska City, Neb., Chief Engineer.
“I enrolled for the Stationary Engineer’s Course while employed as an oiler for the
Great Western Cereal Co., at Nebraska City. At present I am employed as chief engineer by
the same company. It was the knowledge that I derived from the course that put me in this
position. I am very thankful to your agent who enrolled me as a student. My education being
limited, I made up my mind to climb a few steps higher and leave the oil can.
