'omition decency suggests order at
any public gathering and especially at
a school entertainment, where the
audience Is largely made up of parents,
whose children are on the program,
and who are easily emburraxsed by
such conduct. To young bloods whose
brains are in their heels, it is little use
to Ulk, but as a newagntherer, the
publlo will be Informed concerning
such matters. However, we trust it
will not be necessary to speak of such
a matter again. "A hint to tbe wise,"

III case he ever wants to sell, or, If not,
