Joint Meeting of Parents and
Grangers Entertaining and
The parents' meeting held in
the Grange Hall in connection
with Fairmount Grange last Sat
urday, was enjoyed by all pres
ent. ' The hall was well filled
with teschers, parents and gran
gers. Promptly at eleven o'clock
the exercises began with a fifteen
minute singing exercise. Every
teacher, with one exception, was
present frotn the north end of the
county. A fine literary program
was prepared by the adjacent
schools. It consisted of the fol
lowing recitations: "Dashing Ride
of Jennie McNeil," by Wave
Risley; "My Little Kittv," by
Phvllis Goius; "The Old Folks,"
bv Maud Armstrong; "What Bes-

o her selections by Mabel Jones,

ter and six will troni the Fair
mount school. Everyone seemed
to enjoy the selections on the
ph n igraph. Some of th-m were
"Roosevelt's Rough Riders,"
President McKinley's Buffalo
Speech and his funeral . exercises
The regular program brought
forth somey good, lively discus
sions. Many suggestions were
given that, were of practical bene
fit to all. Mr. Risley opened the
discussion 011 the subject, "Need
ed Apparatus in the School
Room." He contended that in
this age of progress the teacher
j j 1 1 1. . .1
neeaea me Desi apparatus 10 ue
had. He thought every school
should have a case of maps,
globe, dictionary and holder,
black boards, seats, etc., Mr.
Reese followed in the discussion.
We thought ttiat we needed a
good teacher and a hazel. These
went hand in hand. The teacher
: should not fail to employ this as
sistant ia order to obtain the best
results. He cited examples where
the use of the hazel brought forth
yestions on the subject. ,lrny
bhow.d careful preparatiou.
The account of the meeting
would be incomplete if we did
not compliment the good cooks
on the excellent dinner served.
The grangers, since the meeting
of a year ago, have made valu
able additions to their hall The
basement h.s been finished, and
now serves as a dining room.
The room is large and will he
very convenient fi r the many
good feasts that are to come
The dinner was set on three tab!es
and contained everything needed
tJ make the noon hour a period
or pleasure and sociability.
