The Teacher's Choice.
By James Wengert Bluo Side. Maple
"I don't seo why teacher chose Ruth
Mooro to play the piano for our drills,
"No," Kitty shook hor head thought
fully. "I can't see why she did," she
said, puckering her forehead. Ruth don't
play nearly so well as Mae Smith or Nell
Allen. "Well of, course, they are a Bood
deal older than she Is." said Grace hur
riedly. ''You wouldn't expect her to
play so well." "No," agreed Kittle.
"Ruth keeps good time but she does not
know nearly so many pretty pieces as
tho other girls. Mae plays a good many
beautiful marches." "Yes, I know," said
Grace, "but I can't see why teacher
chose Ruth to play the piano.. Then
there Is little Caroline Peck to lead the
drill. I think Mao Smith Bhould have
played the piano and Nell Allen lead the
drills," said Kittle. But hero tho conver
sation broko up and the little girls went
to their homes. About three weeks later
when tho classes wore studying their les
sons quietly, Nell Allen raised her head
from her book and gave a prolonged
sniff. At the sound all tho children
raised their heads and soon sniffs were
heard all over the room. Soon the
teacher raised her head and went to the
door, a puff of smoke greeted tho open
ing, she closed It quickly and went bask
to her pupils. She raised her pencil tor
the drill and Ruth came quickly and
started out on a simple march. Tho
children arose and started towards the
door. As little Caroline Peck passed
through the door the teacher leaned over
and whispered to her, "Are you afraid
Caroline?" "No, ma'am." said Caroline
quietly. Just then the children from tho
lower hall wero heard rushing out doors.
This was too much for somo of the chil
dren and half a dozen- of them, led by
Mae Smith and Nell Allen, broke out of
line and started running down stairs.
"Mae, Nell, stop where you are," called
the teacher catching hold 6"f Nell. "I
won'tl I won't!" screamed Nell and i
twisting herself free, she rushed down
stairs folowed by Mae and a few others.
Just then Ruth started "Tramp! Tramp!"
and the remaining children fell Into line
and led by Caroline they marched down
stairs and out of tho building singing'
lustily. As the last children filed out of
tho room the teacher turned. She
could scarcely se"b Ruth because of the
smoke. "Come, dearie," she called. Ruth
played the last of the strain then came
quickly across the room. The teacher
took her hand and they hurried after tho
others. When they came out of the
building Ruth saw Caroline standing
alone and she hurried across the lawn
and started home with her. As they
ncared the pavement a gentle arm stole
around them and the teacher said, kiss
ing first ono and then the other. "I
knew you wero brave enough to do It."

"We will grow."
Tho sun warmed them and the rain

with them came green leaves.
Bye and byo children came. One of
them saw the violets and said, "These
are Just what I wanted." The children
gathered many flowers and took them
home. They had pretty baskets and they
filled them with flowers. That night after

doors, rang the door bell and ran.
Tho violets wore put at a little girl's

Edna had to work very hard. She had
to do the dishes every morning, noon and
evening, while her elder brothers and
filters sat In the parlor.
One night as she was at work, she
could hear the merry voices of her play
mates playing out side. This made her
very angry, and she threw down her dish
cloth and went to the back door. As
she stood there thinking what to do, she
made up her mind to run away.
So she went to the lake and got into
her small row boat and rowed to the
other side of the lake. When she got
there she tied up her boat and began
to walk around.
Finally she came to a small shanty
that was vacant, She went Inside and
found some dry stale bread and some
dirty bacon In a skillet She did not
like the looks of things there so she went
She sat down on one side of the house,
thinking what to do next; she now wished
she was home again, for it began to
get dark. Just as she turned to the
lake, she saw two figures coming towards
her. This frightened her very much,
and her knees began to tremble with
fear. Just as they got to the shanty
they went In and she heard them talk
about there good luck and what they had
A few minutes later th turn
back towards tho direction fron) which
they came from.
Kdna had by this tlmo made up her
mind to go back home, so she started
towards tho lake, but when she got there
her boat was gone. Tho two men had
taken it, and they were now out of sight
Of course thero, was nothing to be done,
and Edna had to stay over night out
Tho next day the whole town was in
search for LMnn, and the parents had
hunted all night for her. In the after
noon she saw a boat coming, sailing
town tho lake, and to tho great relief
of Kdna, It was her parents.
They quickly took her home, for she
was nearly starved to death. Ever after
that. Edna would only be to glad to
wash the dishes every night without
thinking of running away.

The Day Mildred Played Hookey.
By Alta Dickover. Aged 12 Years, Atkin
Mildred was a little girl of about 10
years old. She had been going to school
very regularly all through the winter, but
now when spring was here and it was
getting so warm, she began to dislike
going to school. '
One bright, warm afternoon, a few
of the pupils suggested, she play hookey
with them that afternoon and go for a
nice walk. This sounded very fine to
Mildred. All morning she was thinking
of the fun they would have.
In the afternoon sho was with the rest
Soul Escaped Its Bonds
"X was deaf, and I hear; I was blind,
and I seer I was dumb, -and I speak,"
The words were the oratorical climax In
one of tho most remarkable addresses
thatvan American or any other audience
has ever been privileged to hear. They
were spoken by Miss Helen Keller In her
first address beforo a New York City
audience, In the Forty-eighth Street the
ater, Sunday night, March 80. Soma of
the speaker's previous words had not been
easily understood by her hearers, though
their attention was almost painfully alert
to catch every syllable that fell from
the speaker's lips; but these words rant;
out with a clearness that made them un
derstood by the remotest listener: There
was an unmistakable note of triumph In
them; and the realization of the years of
patletjt struggle that their utterance hod
cost brought tears to many eyes.
It was In the answering of questions,
however, at tho conclusion of the ad
dress, that the most dramatics Incidents
of the evening occurred. Miss Keller, re
moving one of her gloves, placed the
fingers of her right hand on her teach
er's face tho little' finger on the throat,
the other fingers on the lips, and the
thumb on the side of the nose.
In thus Interpreting speech, Mrs. Maey
explained, her pupil had a alight advan

speech by Hp reading which, she said,
"Is to a considerable extent guesswork,
for the Hp reader cannot get the guttural
sounds or the nasal tones," as Miss Keller
can by the touch method. The questions
asked by the audience were repeated by
the teacher, and almost Instantly grasped
by her pupil, who answered them, facing
the audiece, with quick wit and with an
engaging smile that fairly lit up her face
as a humorous fancy passed through her

John was walking' to the store one
day when he' saw a boy going through

In the desert Ho was whipping his
horse as hard as he could. John went
up to him and said, "Do yoa not see It
Is dark In here and the horeo cannot see
where to go? Let him go slowly and
can play on the harp and even on the
organ. Is this truo?"
With her 'Illuminating smile the answer
came, "If I can play on an organ, It must
be a hand organ."
"Is your sense of touch abnormally
koen?" was another question.
"It Is the same as yours, but It has
been developed more thoroughly."
"How about the sense of taste?"
With another laugh came the answer,
"I like good things to eat."
Someone asked, "Do you practice men
tal healing?" There was here' a moment's
confusion between the words "feeling"
and "healing," but when "healing" was
finally understood the reply came like a
"I'm no doctor!"
The Joy of hearing this part of Miss
Keller's talk was that It gave one the
sense ot listening to a bright, happy.
normal girl, who loved her friends, her
home, her work In life and her hooks.
As to her books, one question brought
out her Interest In current literature.
The Spectator bogan by saying that tho
climax of Helen Keller's address was in
tho words cited In the first of these para
graphs. But on reflection he thinks that
the real climax of the occasion was when
a hearer asked, "Do you know when we
applaud?" Pupil and teacher came td Mm

Miss Keller's face assumed an Intent ex

had voiced a message of love and Inspira
