"Roll of Honor" of tho publle'schools
oLMar 3, 1887, revive soma lively
Tocollecllons ii tho mind of one of
toe "young kids" of that time who fig
ured In the aforesaid roll. Although
tho tlmo was nearly 37 years ago,
the writer easily recalls a. majority
of Uio names lu tiio partloular school
which lio attendcl, tho Contral, and
-troll romorabors tho characteristics,
tic., of thoso whoso name appear
m tho roll of honor. Thinking that
the old boys and girls of that period
might, perhaps, bo IntorcRted, Is my
ooxcuso for tills roferenco to somo of
Tho flint named, Orln Ilarkor, was
a good etudout, and qulto popular
with bis associates; I remoraber ho
