Till: DEKltV SCHOOLS.
To t'io Editorof the Eagle.
A very pleasant and profitable school
entertainment was held at Derby. Friday
evening, April Villi, the occasion being the
graduating exercises at the close of the
term. There were three recipients of the
h jnors conferred: IUfs Bertha Cole, John
Murray and Thomas Blaise. The first two
received diplomas certifying that they
completed the common school course, and
the last a certificate ot good scholarship.
A large and appreciative audience testified
to the iuteret taken in educational mat
ters by the people of this community.
The papers lead bv the graduates were
quite creditable, and show what can be
accomplished by the pupils of the com
mon schools with a fair degiee of energy
and perseverance properly directed.
Charles E. Corfin delivered the address
and his eloquent and able remarks were
well received. His arguments in favor of
character building rather than the mem
acquisition of knowledge are quite m
harmony with the aims and purposes of
the present management of school affairs.
Prof. I ,ightfoot, with a neat little speech,
presented the diplomas. His earnest words
,of advice and bympatlry for tne graduates
were an index to his character as an edu
tioiiist. He has conducted the schools of
Derby for the yunl year with marked suc
cess, always working for the best interests
of his pupil.
Dr. Tucker made some very appropriate
remarks relative to the work that should
be accomplished bv the public schools,
particularly that bearing upon the ques
tion ot morality.
Rev. jsymuies followed, and in a happy
vein of humor presented some of the ad
vantages ot thoroughness and hard study.
All tne speakers heartily commended the
use of the course of study prepared, recog
nizing the necessity of system in shcool

One of the mo-t enjoyable events of the
week was that of F iday evening last at
Mr. Stover's, on Fourth' avenue. The oc
casion was a surprise p.irtv to Miss Etta
Stover, acting matron of News-boys' home.
Knowing that her duties would detain her
until a late hour at the home, a party of
young friends. ;about thirty in number,
took possession of the panors aud house
in general, preparatory to her arrival. A
young friend was then seut to accompany
her home. The surprise was complete.
On entering the parlors she found her
self besieged by a group of hand
shaking associates and friends.
She sooti regained her composure, howev
er, and entertained the callers right roy
ally. In this she was ably assisted by her
sister, Miss May. Near 11 o'clock the
guests were treated to a lunch of flue cake,
fruits, etc. After various games, music,
and an enjoyable time generally the guests
began to leave, with many expressions of
pleasure and wishes for the trequent re
turn of a like event. Among those pres
ent were the following: Messrs. Charlie
Martin, Chas. Vosburgh, Chas. Koetsch.
Fred Sparling, Chas. Wallace, James

Friday evening the teachers and pupils
of the Irying public school gave an enter
tainment of select songs, recitations, farces
and tableauxs of more than ordinary
merit. The program was rendered on the
boards of the Garfield opera house to a
full and select audience, and from the free
flow of applause it was evident to even the
mind of a critic of some experience
that the presentations as a whole was a
satisfactory aud high order for children
The Eagle regrets that through the
rush of business on that occasion that no
rppcrt of this interesting rendition of tne
Irving school was published in yesterday
The chorus "America." by the whole
school, was rendered with fine effect.
Then fallowed various pieces which elicit
ed hearty applause, until the exhibition of
the Amazon drill, under the leadership of
Miss Minnie Eller, was put on. This con
sisted of various tactical evolutions by a
full number of little 7 and 10-year old
girls aud boys, which carried the mind
back to the days of women warriors, hel
mets, shields and swords. A song render
ed by the Irving Glee club next received a
burst of applause. Then came the Kinder
Symphony, with fine effect. The presen
tation was concluded by the tableau
"America" in fine statuesque style and
order of arrangement. Among the per
sonel Mr. J. S. Curson, principal; Miss
leida H. Mills, Miss Jessie
L. Clark, Miss Gussie L Hoyt,
Miss Louie Chamberlain and Miss Minna
Eller deserve great credit for forming a
cast of such clever character from the raw
material in a school of children. Among
the pupils it is impossible to mention every
one deserving it if we could do so. But
little Florence Anderson, Pearl Finney,
Horace Hutchison, who beat the bass drum,
Ida Magee, Miss Chambers aud Lydia
Haines may be mentioned for proper de
portment in many respects while playing
their parts. The recitation of "Sparticus"
by John Rutlidge, was very cleverly done.
Altogether, for a juvenile rendition, the
performance was a success.
The Ancient Greeks were- noted for their
