iMSBT, July 2;. The 27th was a great
and glorious dav for Sandy and for the
teachers and their seholurs. Five teachers
and about one hundred children took a deep
interest in making the school picnic all that
could be desired. They made a grand sues
cess of it in every way. An immense crowd
of people gathered in the park to hear the
exersises, which consisted of songs, ilia-
logues, recitations, etc., and whicu were
rendered in a pleasant and able manner.
To give the entire program would occupy
too much space. We can give a portion
only, as follows:
The exercises were opened by a song.
My Country," by all the schools, followed
with a prayer by Rev. Kith.
Next was a geography song by Bertha
Rich, Pearl Birdsall and Sophia lVterson.
Kecitations Jenny XlcXeal, Alice Mc
Song "To be a Farmer's Boy," Mamie
Kopper and Mary Mitchell.
Kecitation " Kate Malone," by Miss Min
The exercises closed for one hour for din
ner, alter which they were duly opened, as
Song By High Forest school.
Recitation (Title unknown), by Clarence
Song" Oren tne Gate as high as the
Sky," Celia Winker.
Recitation " Kate Sheely," Minta Bird
sail. Recitation' Asleep at the Switch," Mol
8ong " Poor Old Joe." Nancy McAdams.
Recitation, by Will Barlow.
Recitation" Curfew Must Sot RingTo
Nigbt," Tillie bruns.
Numerous other recitations, songs and
acts were very nicely rendered.
Other enjoyments of the day were a big
Merry Go 'Round which cameout from Ore-
gon City and pitched their big tent in our ;
town. They did a lively business.
Other features of the day were foot races
and base ball. Some lioodlums had a tent
pitched up in the county road. As they
were rather saucy about the objections made
to their obstructing the highway a crowd of
boys went and removed the chebang.
A Mr. Van Wagner, who was running
around here, was captured by two police
officers on a charge of having robbed a jew
elry store in Salem.
Veterans and Sons of Veterans are mak
ing great preparations for the soldiers' re
union which will take place 011 the 18th of
August at Pleasant Home grove, and which
will no doubt be one of the greatest re
unions ever had at that place. Some of the
best speakers of the state have been secured,
among whom are Hon. George C. Brownell
of Oregon City, Rev. J. H. Skidmore and
Bey. Gue, two veteran patriotic speakers,
Col. E. Hofer of Salem, and Gen. S. B.
Ormsby of Silverton. A ball will be given
on the platform in the afternoon. Base ball,
foot races, and other sport will be bad. It
will be a great day for old soldiers and their
friends. Come one and all and have a real
good time with the boys. Reader.
