of the ferries about the first of Jan

about the trastfer.
It is naderstood that some im

almost at once. Strengthening the
vehicle approaches in Algiers is im
perative and new ferry houses on both
sides of the river stand out as a necee

on Wednesday at the close of the
noon recess, the talented members of
our faculty. Miss L. Averill, pianist.
Mr. Harrison clarlonetist, Mr.
Mahoney and Miss Voestlln. violin
ists, gave a musical treat which was
enjoyed by pupils and teachers.
An air of subdued excitement was
noticeable from First Grade through
Eighth during the week. The cause
was explained in elaborately colored
posters around halls and basement,
which heralded the coming of a circus
to our school. Tents were pitched in
the basement on Friday and the per
formance began at 3:30 p. m., with
a parade of animals and performers.
What thrills were experienced by
watching tight rope walkers, whose
feats at dizzy heights made one's
head whirl, beautiful snake charm
ers and bareback riders whose man
agement of their steeds won the ad
miration of the onlookers; fancy
dancers who rivaled Pavalora by
their charm and grace, while the
ridiculous antics of the clowns and
the elephant stunts delighted young
The strong man amazed the aud
ience not only by lifting a 2000
pound weight. but also by eating Iron.
The ringmaster showed he was no
novice in the business by his skill
ful management of animals and actors.
Music was furnished by the Junior
Jazz Band which made a hit with
the little folks.
The following were the circus
Tight Rope Walkers--Gee. Zat
arain, Marcel Roth and Edward
Dancers-Oliver Sutherland and
lowns--Chas Ruckett and Ernest
Strong Man-Bernard Covell.
Elephants-Jas. Higgius - Eugene
The Civic League of the Eighth A
worked hard to make the circus a
financial success and succeeded far
beyond their expctations.
Leagues in other grades are now
anxious to display their talent, so
another performance can be looked
for in the near future.
