On Thursday of last week, a
number of pupils of the Training
Department accompained by Prin
cipal Traver and his corps of
teachers, represented District
No. 13 at the third annual school
children's fair held at Dallas.
After enjoying the exhibits,
which were displayed in the W.
0. W. hall, the pupils formed
in line at theschoolfewilding and
with other school , children from
all the districts in the county,
followed out the line of march as
blocked out by the fair officials.
Much to the delight of all con
cerned, the promised watermelon
ended the parade. Every child
was served; the affair being
quietly and nicely managed by
thje reception committee. Taken
all in all, the management is cer
tainly to be congratulated for
bringing forth such good efforts
of the children. Many results,
as shown in the domestic science
department, the agricultural de
partment and the manual train
ing department are nothing less
than remarkable for children of
grammar school age. Surely the
co-operation of parents and teach
ers during the coming year will
add materially to effective results
which county superintendent,
Seymour is striving very hard to
accomplish. It is hoped the
"fourth annual" will surpass
even the "third arnual."

his future life revealed by a clever
old witch. At length the witches
in order to partake of the pea
nut feast removed their masks.
The Society was pleased to
have Mr. Briggs Misses Shearer,
Whitehouse and Stafford present.
