Mary Goldenstein of the Red side won the orize book this week. Harold
Towle of the Red side and Flora
By Mary B. Goldenstein, Aged 12,
Glenville. Neb. Red Side.
I am going to tell of an adventure
I had when I was about 6 years old.
I used to like to play with fire. One
day I found an old candle that my
brother had dropped. I picked it up
and got a match and took it upstairs
I lit the candle and set it on the floor.
I heard someone talking outdoors, so
I raised the window and looked out.
The candle was near the window,
and as I turned around my dress
caught afire. I hit it against the cur
tain and the curtain caught afire. 1
was very frightened, and I screamed,
bdt, as my parents were used to my
yelling around the house, they paid
no attention. I shuts-the door and
ran downstairs. I was afraid that I
would be severely punished, so I ran
into my mother's bedroom, and shut
the door, rearing that my mother
would come in and see me, I crawled
under the bedclothes.
My mother in the sitting room
thought she smelt fire. She went up
stairs and saw smoke coming from
under the door. She ran inside and
saw two curtains burning, and a cot
ton blanket, and the floor was begin
ning to burn. She smothered the
flames and brought the burnt things
downstairs. Then she came into the
bedroom. The sight of my frightened
face made her drop the little switch
she had intended to whip me with.
That experience Cured me of playing
with fire. One can still see the
marks of the fire on the window
casing and floor.

Fell Off Pony.
By Harold Towle, Aged 9 Years,
Weeping Water, Neb. Red Side.
Once noon a time I was riding my
pony. I went down after the cows.
As 1 was coming back 1 went under a
tree. Just as I was coming under it a
great big limb hit me in the face. It
knocked me off my pony. I took the
bridle off my pony and went to the
house. My nose was bleeding and so
was the rest of my face. My mamma
washed my face and put some listerine
on my face. It hurt and I jumped up
and down on the floor. It was a week
before my face was healed up. I have
a scar on my face yet. One time be
fore that, too, my papa had a runaway
with the pony and another horse.
They busted the double-trees and put
one of the wheels out of shape. He
tried to get out, but he tripped and fell

stick for about three or four days.

Little Ruth's Revenge.
By Dora Ossian. Stanton. Tnwo
Last summer while I was with my
wuunn a coupie .01 aays, her niece
came to visit also. My cousin was
12 and I was 14, and her little niece
was 5. One afternoon my aunt and
uncle went to town, leavinir ua throe
at home alone. They went about 2
ociocK and said that they would be
home around 6 o'clock. We tried to
amuse ourselves as best we could. We
cracked nuts and made candy. Popped
Eop corn and made some popcorn
alls which were not fit to eat. So
we had to eat more sweet apples to
make up for the popcorn balls. Then
we told Ruth that we would play
"Hide.., go and seek." And that she
should be it. She consented, and we
hid. Then hollered "ready." She
couldn't find us, so then she said she
wasn't going to play. Then we went
in to eat our candy, which was now
roclc hard. The candy was good and,
of course, very sweet. Then we told
Ruth to go and get us three lilies
apiece. As she went, we thought it
would be great fun to run and hide
again. We got in a closet and
slammed the door shut. There we
were, now, locked in for our own
smartness. We heard Ruth coming
into the house. We called to her and
asked her, in the sweetest tone, if
she wouldn't please open the door.
It was getting so hot we could hard
ly breathe. We thought we would
have to break open the door, when
Ruth said, "If I open the door, will
you promise not to hide again from

to do that. Then she opened the
closet door for us, and you never

. I suppose all the Busy Bees are
planning for Hallowe'en night. I hope
most of the Busy Bees will celebrate
Hallowe'en in fun and frolic, instead
of mischief. Hastings is going to let us
have a good time. We are going to
have our fun uptown. The street west
of the Brach theater is going to be
sprinkled with cornmeal for a big
dance. We are going to have a large
orchestra. The children will be
dressed in masks and in costumes. I
think this Hallowe'en will be appre
ciated by the people of this town. I
know of one little girl who is going
to be dressed up as a witch. She is
going to wear a black peaked hat
and a long black gown with round
circles or moons with black cats. She
is going to ride on a broomstick. I
think this will be very cunning, don't
you, Busy Bees? I haven't decided
how I am going to be dressed. I hope
we will all have a good time. My

I had so many things to pack and so
many things to think about that I
forgot my parasol.
When I got to my grandmother's I
told her about forgetting my parasol.
The next day she went up into the
attic and brought down an old faded
parasol, which she used when she
was a girl. She gave me the parasol
to use. This parasol was very beau
tiful. I thought very much of the
parasol, although mine was very
pretty. When I went home grand
mother gave me the old parasol to

I suppose there was more to me but
I don't remember anything until I
heard a lot of voices. I was in a little
dirty chubby fist. It was a little girl,
she was very poor. I could tell by
her clothes. She went into a store
and gave me to a man for a stick of
candy. Then I was thrown in among
other pennies and was just ready to
tell them my history though. It
wasn't very large when I was taken
out and given to a very rich little girl
who looked very unlike my other mis
tress did. She was' all bundled up.

She took me home and put me in
her bank with lots ot pennies,
quarters, half dollars and dollars. I
stayed here two days and a night.
One night she came and got me and
nine other pennies and went down
town. In the middle of the street
she lost me and five other pennies,
but she did not know it and a little
beggar girl came and picked me up.
She was a kind little girl and bought
a loaf of bread for her sick mother.
The other pennies were sleeping,
but I woke them up when I was with
them. Some of them recognized me
and began to talk. But I was taken
out again and handed to a young
lady who gave me to her sister. One
day the little girl went and got me
and went down town. Some one hit
her as they were walking along the
crowded Streets and she lost me. She
was in great distress, but it was all
of no use. I was lost. She told a
little boy. He is looking for me now,
but I am hid.

When I first started to write stories
it came by me in the form of an in
spiration. Where 1 got it. found it
or came by it I do not know. But it
makes no difference, for ever since
then I have written stories and had
pretty fair success. I suppose, all of
your Busy Bees have had the same
experience as I. Many things have
come up during school life which
gave others great inspirations,
but which, did not even give me a
thrill. Queer, isn't it? Once in a
while when I hear someone speak
very well or play beautiful music I
think I have an inspiration and for
the next one or two weeks I ponder
and talk and dream over it, but at
the end of that time I grow tired and
fish around for something new to put
or center my thoughts on. A little
girl once said to me:
"Glee, why don't you be a famous
After that I felt very proud
and my thinkers would often wan
der back to the incident, but I have
begun to think contrary to being fa
mous since I have grown older in
years. A missionary once gave me
an inspiration when she talked of the
need of money and Christian people
over in the heathen lands. But soon .
my instinct told me I was not yet fit
for missionary work and I longed to
dwell upon more common, ordinary
things of life.
Turtles of Florida.
By. Luella Gregerson, Aged 8 Years,
Box 137, Elba, Neb.
This is the first time I have written
to the Busy Bees' page. We love to
read the stories on the Busy Bees'
page. I have three sisters and two
brothers. We all go to school but
baby. She is 3 years old. I will tell
you a story about turtles.
A year ago last summer we all went
to Florida and lived in the big pine
woods one mile from Indian river,
which is a big bayou on the east coast
of Florida. There are many turtles in
Florida, big and small, but they are
not snapping turtles. We children
would stand on their backs and they '
would go very slow; but when they
got out in the sand then they could
not walk, but would sink in the sand.
Once mamma saw one and she was
afraid of it It was not like the others.
This is a true story.
Trip to Western Nebraska.
By Nola Kerns. Phillips, Neb.
This is the fourth time I have
written to you. I am going to tell
of our trip to western Nebraska. In
September papa, mamma, and I, start
ed for Ingham, a little station in the
western part of the state. I saw
many beautiful sights on the way.
When we got there our friends were
there to meet us. We had a very
good time while we were there. One
day we took our dinner and made a
camp. We stayed all day and went
home in the evening. We stayed out
there nearly a whole week and then
returned home. We surely had a
good time. As my story is getting
long I will have to close.
