a tenderness In his words and actions

I fancy she is some relation to the

"She is my sister." ,'

"Yes. It is a long story. We were

Class three waa open to members of

A iiilxliiko was make by iboae hav

placing In elan 2 several exercises
which belonged to class!. This left
lues 1 with but three eiitrles: mid
placed at a disadvantage those in class
, who had recitations, dialogues, songs
aud decleniatiotiH, as 'the prizes were
given only to those having In them
a number of scholars.
"I liree drills were given; a tamborlne
drill by the Monmouth school, a flag
drill by the Hvthel m-hool and a dumb
bell drill. The dumb bell drill waa ex
oocdl ugly good aud well merited the
piie It received; the other prlxe went
to the taiuborlne drill, whose quaint
costume made It etlcctlve.
Nearly every school of any size was
represented In the general exercises.
e roui the Independence school there
was a recitation, "The Power of Hab

Miss Maud Patterson, "The Owl Crit

clever and well executed dialogue, "An
Electrical Kplsode,". by Misses Pearl
ootHjr. Kfllle and Hose Richardson
utid Bertha Fryer. Two of the vounir
led lew took the parts ol men and acquit

awarded the prizes to a Flower Cantata

Hut three schools had representatives

because inuuy schools liave not yet bail
