TODAY'S SHETLAND PONY STORY ;
A story written by a child who won a Shetland pony in a former pony contest
Dear Editor You asked me to tell you how I
came to enter the contest, and some of my experi
ences during it. For over a year I was wishing
for a pony, and when the snow was going away in
the spring I made up my mind to work and earn
either a bicycle or some kind of a pony. We boys
took Jobs of sawing wood for the neighbors, and I
earned the price of a second-hand bicycle, and my
brother repaired it for me. When the Ninth Shet
land Pony Contest was announced, we saw the pic
tures of the five ponies to be given away as prizes,
and also pictures of many other ponies you had
given away before. With my father's consent I
entered the contest, sent in my name to you, and
received a button to wear, also 5.000 votes for nom
ination, and 25,000 free votes Tor promptness. I
canvassed all I could around home and intended
to use the bicycle to go out Into the country, but
there had been so much rain it made the roads bad,
and I could not get out very much. My father
helped me a great deal by asking many who came
to the mill to subscribe, but we were not getting
along nearly as well as we would have liked. 1
lost a few days from school, but was there for ex
aminations, and was promoted. During the holi
days I did very little but canvass, and found! that
the people tftemd more 'willing to listen to me
near the close or the contest; but stilt I was- afraid
I wouldinot tfe able to win a pony. We mailed let
ters to a great many people at a distance,; telling
them about toe contest, and I always felt so happy
when they answered me by subscribing. My. father
drove with' tn to fdur other towns, and w! met
with fair-sureess. My last list was a good targe
one. Still. w were very amlons lest yre hud. failed
in winning trie pony. However, we bad done our
best. After; waiting anxiously, Our station agent
brought around the telegram telling us that I! had
fifth pony, Wasn't I glad to hear it! Almost all
the people ia town were at the station when the
pony arrived. I was-never bo pleased in'Tnytlife
before as when I saw the pony, cart and harness.
It seemed almost too good to be true. People said
they believed it would be a blessing to all the chil
dren of the town. They all feel as though they! had
a share n it, and want to do something for It, -I
am enclosing a picture of myself and FroMe,Thank
ing you again, dear Editor, for the way yon direct
ed and encouraged me throughout the. 'contest,
yours gratefully.- SHIRLEY HODGSON. :
