- itself proud as entertainers. Last
I Thursday evening the young men and
L their guests danced out the old year and
- danced in the new to the delightful
music of Professor Shoemaker's orches
tra, consisting of violin, trombone,
piano and cornet.
The hall was in perfect condition
- and everybody seemed well primed to
make the occasion a .oyous cne. The
elegant costumes of the ladies. the uni
forms of the many cadets, and the full
evening dress suits of a number of the
young gentlemen was only the setting
to the picture of contentment, happi
ness and pleasure.
The dancing began about 9 o'clock
p. m. and did not cease until 3 o'clock
a. m. It is necessary to state there
were a few who did not dance. but
they enjoyed the occasion equally with

when our first child was a baby he was T
subject to croupy spells and we would
be very uneasy about him. We began
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in S
1887, and finding it such a reliable rem
edy for colds and croup. we have never
been without it in the house since that
time. We have five children and have
given it to all of thi:i with good re
sults. Oue good feature of this remedy ]o
is that it is not disagreeable to take aud al
our babies really like it. Another is
that it is not dangerous, and there is no
risk from giving an overdose. I con- J
gratulate you upon the success of your A
