us and to 83y that we love her
would fail to give full expresi?n to
this sentence. She is strict in schoo.
giving her full time ko the advance
ment of her pupils. Out of school
you would scarcely know her from
one of the pubils ts she co-operates
with us in all of our play?. We now
have a splendid new building built
on the modern style site SO by 32
feet, 12 feet between joint, eight
windows, four doors with two beau

made us a deed of titles.
We have a fine neighborhood
settled up with good people and the
prospects bids fair to be one of the
best schools in this section. We
also have a fine Sunday Behool at
Vernon and we attend every Sun
day. Some of us have made a two
year's record without a miss and

for regular attendance.
Mr?. J. J. Mayson has been on
the bed of affliction for a long time

Spring bas opened up and the
snow and ice will soon be a dream
of the past and the sweet songs of
the birds and the beautiful flowers
will soon emerge from their winter
quarters to gladden ?our hearts and
make life more cheerful.
Mr. Editor I guess I bwe worried
your patience with this poor com
positiou as. I am a little girl with
little experience therefore you will
not expect much of me.
