the financial condition of the people. This is what

scored distinctive hits. For luncheon,

candles with shades to match. In the
center was a huge pumpkin filled to
overflowing with the most luscioiib
fruits and surrounded by tiny black
cats with shining yellow eyes. Scat

DEATH OF MISS H. MYRA
A very sad accident happened at
the school Wednesday, October 16.
Miss H. Myra Norton, Instructor of
Domestic Economy, was standing in
tho salesroom with her back to the
stove, talking ito Miss Wallace. In
some unexplained manner her clothing
took fire and when noticed was burn
ing fiercely. Besides Miss Wallace
there was no one In there at the
tiiriA excent one of the girls. The
Kifht nf ithe fire rendered them so
j- p-5 vf
nervous and excitable and everything
happened so quickly, that she was
f.ntallv burned before they could ren
rfpr anv effective assistance or even
summon heln. After the fire was put
out she was carried to the Infirmary
an! evervthine possible that medical
skill and careful nursing could de
vise was done for her, but all to no
avail. She sank gradually and shortly
before supper expired. Over two
thirds of her body was burned and re
covery, of course, was a matter of Im
possibility. Her people were com
municated with by telegraph and at
their request it he body was buried
here. The floral offerings from the
school, the faculty and student body
were beautiful. Miss Norton was
held in high esteem by all and heT
iintimplv taklne off caused genuine
sorrow and regret. It threw the whole
-: school in gloom.
Tim funeral took place Friday. at 11
o'clock. Slowly and sadly the stu
dent body filed into the beautiful new
memorial chapel, a subdued quietness
prevailed. There was no hum as
usual, buit stillness. The beautiful
service of the Church was read ana
Archdeacon Russell n most feeling
and touching terms referred to the life
and character of the deceased, taking
occasion to press home in their rela

simple truths of the Bible in a most
impressive manner. The vested choir
sang two beautiful hymns and then
the remains, followed by the faculty,

of St. Paul Benevolent Society, were
taken to the cemetery. -The choir
