The Monkey That Would Not Kill

The day was not yet broken when the 'watch' of the ship Vulcan, lying becalmed off the ---- coast, was roused by a peculiar noise aft.

Joseph the Dreamer

Description: 

The chief baker's dream was a sad one. He had dreamt of three baskets which he carried on his head--baskets filled with the king's food--but the birds had come and eaten up all the food.

The Tale of Jimmy Rabbit

Description: 

Jimmy Rabbit wanted a new tail. To be sure, he already had a tail—but it was so short that he felt it was little better than none at all. Frisky Squirrel and Billy Woodchuck had fine, bushy tails; and so had all the other forest-people, except the Rabbit family. Jimmy had tried his hardest to get a handsome tail for himself. And once he had nearly succeeded. For he almost cut off Frisky Squirrel's big brush. But Mrs.p. 10 Squirrel had appeared just in time to save her son from so dreadful a mishap.

Roy Blakeley's Bee-line Hike

Description: 

The man laughed; he was a good-natured man. So we all climbed up on the ladder, one after another, and while we were waiting for the man to carry it around to the back of the sign we all sat in a row on top. Right underneath us were painted the words "Always on top." I made a picture of that sign with all of us sitting on the top of it.

The Boy Allies At Verdun

On the twenty-second of February, 1916, an automobile sped northward along the French battle line that for almost two years had held back the armies of the German emperor, strive as they would to win their way farther into the heart of France. For months the opposing forces had battled to a draw from the North Sea to the boundary of Switzerland, until now, as the day waned--it was almost six o'clock--the hands of time drew closer and closer to the hour that was to mark the opening of the most bitter and destructive battle of the war, up to this time.

Do and Dare

Description: 

You know how we are situated, continued Herbert, who thought it best to state his case as briefly as possible. "Father was unable to save anything, and we have no money ahead. If mother can keep the post office, we shall get along nicely, but if she loses it, we shall have a hard time."
