vcuat Grove school Happenings.
Our school at this place was never in
a more flourishing condition, under the
skillful management of Prof. R. Lee
Banders. He hos entwined himself
around the hearts of our people and
children in a noble manner. And we.
hope that through his influence our
people may be iedto change our school
into a graded one.
It had been circMated by the pupils,
that, on Friday evening last, they were
to have holiday with some amusements.
About noon the good people of our
community began gathering in from
every corner and nook. By 8 o'clock
there waBqoitea crowd of both old
and young, gaily chattering in the grove
around the school-house.
But soon all was quieted when Mr.
Sanders called for the boys with the
blue uniforms to come and prepare for
their part of the program. The boys
have only been drilling for a short
while, but looked and steped very much
like soldiers. They have a company'
of twelve, and show that their leader
has given them special training.
Then came the following beautiful
and appropriate recitations. They
were full of mirth and laughter:
1st. "Mamma's Writing at Letter,"
2nd. "Little Paul in Mischief," Miss
> 3rd. "Me and Bettie done this," Miss
4th. MBill in Trouble," John LrUis.
4th. "Socrates Snooks," ??rover
The next port of, the program was
looked for by all the fleet-footed boys,
for it was to show who waa the fastest
runner in school. There was a thirty
yard race between the least boys in
school. Little Jim Scott won the
8rise. As one little boy expressed it,
ejust "flew." 1
The last part was the time when all
hnliowed at times. The bine boys
(school. boys) crossed bats with the
young men of the community. The
seora was in favor of the blue boys,
but I don't think they deserve all the
credit, for mest of our girls went home
with sore throats.
But, alas, the shades of night -ere
coming and all must hurry home, itlr
many fond recollections of the pleas
ant afternoon, ali hoping soon to have
the pleasure of such on occurrence, and
feeling that they co cid not have spent
the time more enjoyable elsewhere.
