KDWIN S. TUCKER,

And there was a great festival and minct-
pie at the house of Kappa Sigma: and little
Sir Tuck did eat thereof, and thereaftci-
dreamed a great dream. And it went after
this fashion— that he beheld himself trans-
form. -d. with his head grown bald, and liim-
.-^.If f:it. and his nose upturned and lifav\-
with fr.ckles. Then up he rose and g:r<)aned
a ffrizzly groan, and swore never more to
oome in peril of mince pie that might lose
him his beauty — even in a dream. (See foot
note on page 36).



NETTIE BURKHOLDER.

Likewise, the maiden Ida, had a sister, hight
Nettie, who was continually by her side.
And Nettie was like unto an angel in her
kindliness, and exceeding wise in all things.

Todd with cheer, and he received her not.
then did she not weep and wail, but cried
"Sir Todd, see if I care! I can scowl as
black as that myself!"

IRI. CLAYTON.

The earl of Clayton was a full duteous
knight, and there was no fault in his whole
nature save one. He bore a sore malady of
the head, which no leech could give remedy
unto. Nor was that his fault neither for
it is a sickness common unto the people of
the Great Bend, of whose tribe he came.



NARRA JONES.

In those days did the well famed lady Narra

cheek grew red. and she spake no word.



HARRISON I>. EULBR.

Among the knights there moved one knight
apart, yet ever an honorable knight, and a
brave knight, and well beseen in patience
and kindliness.



ARIE MILLER.
In those days sat the lady Marie upon a
high pavillion. with many great steps lead-
ing thereto. And there was a timorous
knight who feared to approach, but each day
advanced one step higher. But when he was
come to the top most one. Lo! the lady had
seen him afar off— and was not there!

words for swords, and words for a horse,
and words for a shield. And his name was
called Orator in the court of Womer.



MAJEL LANGHART.

Thp smallest and the winsomest maiden in
all the court was Majel. beloved by every
lord and lady and sought by many a gallant
knight. But she turned herself away from
tliem and fixed her heart privily upon one
mighty Peer.



iNGELI'S T. BL'RCH.

Our lord knight Angelas was the fairest
