as a oharity game of ball was to be
played m tho evening for tho benefit
of a desorving young man who
had been afflicted with typhoid fever
for more than SO days, that it
would be proper to have no school
in tho evening in order that all
might have a chance to aid in swelling
the fund. Hov. Dr. Johnson
said that was right and that he
thought the children should have
also a half holiday on Friday for the
big show, which met with hearty
applause from every one of the five
hundred children present.
Tho deep interest shown in tho
school was the great number of the
patrons present and all in a cheerful
mood. Prof. King has tho school
well organized and in good working
order with efficient teacher and
every teacher at his or her place.
