The pirate had disarmed his opponent! Certain victory was his! Maynard did the only thing he could do.
The pirate did not even wince. Maynard drew out his pistol and shot the cutthroat in the shoulder. Maynard leaped for a nearby rapier but slipped on the bloody deck. He took a few moments to gloat over certain victory. Suddenly a huge, heavy pike came crashing down upon his shoulder blades. All the sailors now were attacking this cruel pirate. Sailors shct him with pistols or either stabbed him with their rapiers.
Finally, Maynard thrust his rapier threw the pirate's stomach. Even though he had tv;enty sword wounds and five gunshot wounds, the moment of death came while he was still standing. The worst and cruelest pirate on the Atlantic was finally silenced. Maynard boarded the pirate ship and found none of the loot from the recent Charleston raid. However, he did find letters from the governor of North Carolina. Tobias Knight.
Maynard was tired of fighting and the North Carolina coast. He had pirates to bring to justice and do! He was showing the world that he and his brave sailors had just silenced the most notorious pirate ont the Atlantic. The April, issue of Organic Gardening claims that rice is not that hard to grow.
Perhaps you could use a planter or tub to grow a very small amount, outside your Library. During colonial days, rice was one of the two big money makers for South Carolina. Today it is being grown near Hardeeville by Dr. Richard and Patricia Schulze. They are using the original "Carolina Gold" strain that was brought from Madagascar in the late 's by a sea captain named Thurber, whose boat was forced to lad in Charleston Harbor.
The Schulzes use antique machinery to mill their rice and sell it to benefit the Savannah Association for the Blind. Idea 2 - Make paper. The manufacture of paper products is now the second largest industry in South Carolina Use lawn clippings, small plants and paper scraps. See books on paper making, or experiment with using a kitchen blender for about 5 minutes to make a pulp with some extra water, a wire screen to pour your mash into, and lots of newspapers to roll the excess water out of your paper put a piece of wax paper over the pulp and wire first.
Concoctions by Lowi Price and Marilyn Wronsky out of print, unfortunately is a good instruction source. The second big money maker for South Carolina during colonial days was Indigo. Indigo is a plant used to make a blue dye. The first denim blue jeans were made with indigo. Now synthetics are used. Today, most dyes are synthetic, rather than made from plants like indigo. Production of chemicals like synthetic dyes is South Carolina's second largest industry, after the textile industry.
They said that they do not always have the natural indigo in stock, but if they can't get it, then they carry a synthetic indigo instead. They would be willing to handle small orders by telephone or mail. Ask for Cheryl Pressley at For your program, you could have each child tye die a scarf or handkerchief, or if budget allows, a T-shirt. Let children guess how many examples: have a tomato and ask how many seeds are in it; have a watermelon and ask how many ounces it weighs; have ajar of peanuts and ask how many are in the iar sheUed or unsheUed!
Examples: spoonbread, shoo fly pie, jambalaya; hoppin'john. Idea 6 - Make peach ice cream. Seive it with peach cobbler, of course. Todag, South Carolina is the onlg place in the United States ujhere tea is grouin commerciallg! Look for someone mith an English background in your community and ask them to stage an authsntic English tea. If you can't find someone in your community, one South Carolina library resource person mho mill be glad to give you some hints by phone is Jodie. She has given several Tivorably received programs in her area.
Here is mhat she suggests, if you're having to improvise: "The secret to making good tea is to make sure mater is boiling , then pour onto tea bags and steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve it English style mith milk or American style mith lemon. Illilk, a small amount, is usually poured into the cup first. I almays suggest that students at least try tea mith milk, then if they don't like it, they don't need to finish it - many love it. Serve cucumber sandmiches, mhite or bromn bread, mith butter, cucumbers sliced very thin - cut off all the crust and cut into triangles. Serve trifle - recipe is available in most intemiitional cookbooks.
Depending on the number of participants, try lo use china cups and saucers. Tnj having a conversation using some English expressions and see mho can guess mhat you mean: examples: "smeets " for candy, "sGviette" fornapkin, "nappy" for diaper, etc. Idea 3 Do gou have a communitg "gypsg" mho could perform some creative tea leaf fortune telling? You'll need a tea bag, some steel mool from the hardmare store don't improvise mith an SOS pad that has soap in it, unless you're milling to rinse It all out first.
Boil a small amount of mater, tmo or three tablespoons, then pour it over the tea bag and the steel mool, that gou have put in an old tin can. Let it all sit overnight. Cut the end, using a very sharp knife, at a steep angle. Then put a slit running to the pomt. The slit alloms the ink to be dramn up to the hollom quill.

The windowbox will allow a wonderful close-up view of the birds' activity! Your windowbox planting will not serve as permanent cover, but it will give some temporary protection to the biids as they feed. The supplies you will need are a windowbox, soil, two shallow bowls or dishes, small shrub or flowers, water, and bird seed or bread crumbs. Instructions: Fill the windowbox with soil and plant a small shnab or flowers at the ends of the box, leaving enoiigh room to place a bowl for water and a bowl for seed on top of the soil in the middle of the box.
Keep the water fresh and seed or bread cnimbs in the seed bowl. Don't be suprised if the squirrels join in the feast! Setting up a feeding station is a great way to watch birds. Here are a few ideas for how to make some simple feeders using inexpensive materials you can find around the house.
Once you set up a feeding station, itll take the birds a little while to know it's there.
Use sharp scissors to cut out the circles. Insert the dowel so that it passes through one hole, though the jug, and out the hole on the other side. Poke severed small holes in the bottom of the jug so rainwater will drain out. Cut a clothes hanger in two places with the wire cutters see diagram A. Each cut should be at least 4" 10cm from the base of the hook. Bend the hanger so it looks like diagram B. Use the nail to poke a hole about 1" 2.
Push the ends of the hanger into the holes. A4ju8t the hanger so that the feeder hangs evenly and the ends of the hanger don't slip out of the holes. Then fill your feeder and hang it up. Wash the bottle and remove the label and colored base. To make a perch, use a nail to pimch 2 holes in the bottle opposite each other. Insert a dowel so that it passes through one hole, through the bottle, and out the hole on the other side.
Make 3 or 4 such perches, alternating the positions so that all sides of the bottle are used. Now you're ready to cut the feeding holes. Remember that the finished feeder will hang with the bottle's neck facing down. Keep in mind that the seeds will IGbJI out if the holes are too big. Bend the hanger so it looks like diagram B above. Do the same on the other side of the bottle, opposite the first hole. Push the ends of the clothes hanger into the holes. Adjust the hanger so that the feeder hangs evenly and the ends of the hanger don't slip out of the holes. Fill the feeder with thistle seeds and replace the cap.
Invert it, and hang it from a tree. Fill the spaces in the pine cone with suet, peanut butter, or a mixture of suet, peanut butter and birdseed. Hang your pine cone feeder by tying the string to a branch. Use wire or string to hang the feeders from a tree. Hang the log from a tree with wire or string. Throughout history, we've worshiped them, condemned them, studied them, and feared them. Try this survey with your kids to help them explore their own feelings about herps and to make them aware of some common misconceptions about these animals.
Afterward the kids can put together a booklet that focuses on some historical aspects of people's relationships with herps. After they finish, tally the answers and talk about each one. Then let the kids get started on the next part of the activity. Draw a picture of some or all of the facts listed below. Fold several pieces of colored construction paper in half widthvsdse and staple them together. Tape or glue each picture onto one of the construction paper pages. His idea was to fill pots with snakes and throw them onto enemy ships. Some people also thought that salamanders could put the fires out as they crawled through them.
Saint Patrick drove all of the snakes out of Ireland. People who supported this idea thought the rattlesnake would be a good symbol for several reasons. For example, the snake's segmented tail was thought to be like the colonies: Each ptji is independent of the others, but all are part of the whole. Ifyou wore a ring made fit m one of these jewels, you'd be protected from poison. According to their legends. Frog Woman created Earth. Reptiles and amphibians are scary and creepy.
There's no right or wrong response to this one. Many people do think that snakes, frogs, lizards, and others herps are tigly, frightening, weird, and so on. But explain to the kids that, in general, negative feeling about herbs-or about others animals, for that matter-tend to subside as people learn more about the animals and the fascinating ways they are adapted to surviving. All turtles are slow. Many ttirtles are slow.
Some of the big tortoises, for example, walk at a pace of only about one-eighth of a mile [. People, on the other hand, can stroll along at about three miles [5 km] an hour. But a few turtles can really move. For example, green sea turtles can swim through the sea at nearly 20 miles [32 km] per hour. Lizards and snakes are slimy. Like all reptiles, snakes and lizards have dry skin.
Their skin contains glands that produce mucus, which helps to keep the animals from drying out. Most snakes are poisonous to people. Some turtles can live tor more than years. Box turtles can live to be more than a century old, and so can some other kinds of turtles. The oldest-known turtle was thought to be at least years old when it died. This ancient animal , a captive Marion's tortoise, might have h ved a lot longer if it hadn't accidentally taken a fatal fall. Some frogs produce a more powerful poison than some snakes. A few fit gs produce very potent poisons from special skin glands.
In some cases these poisons are more potent than those of the most poisonous snakes. Native people often coat their darts with the powerful poisons of certain frogs. Farmers should get rid of all snakes from their bams. Just as with the first sentence, there's no right or wrong answer to this one. The snakes eat rats and mice, which can gobble up a lot of the grain that the farmers have stored away.
Certain snakes may eat some chicken eggs and young, but the benefits of having non-poisonous snakes around the barnyard often outweigh the disadvantages. If you handle a toad, youU get warts. This misconception has persisted for a long time, but it's not true. A toad's ''warty skin isn't contagious. The U. Fish and Wildlife Service's List of Endangered and Threatened midlife and Plants lists more than species endangered or threatened.

And several herp species are currently being reviewed for possible listing in the future. Most kinds of reptiles and amphibians become endangered because people kill them for food and other products. Many herps are killed for food and other products such as leather. Some poisonous snakes have several distinctive featvires that make them easier to recognize than other poisonous snakes. For example, pit vipers in North America have flat, triangular heads, thick bodies, vertical eye-pupils, and a series of single belly scales from head to tail.
And there are also some non- poisonous snakes that have heads and bodies that look like those of some poisonous snakes. The best way to know whether a snake is poisonous or not is to learn to recognize the poisonous snakes that live in your area.
