On Thursday evening quite a splen
did audience enjoyed the Christmas
recital given by the pupils of Mrs. ly
Capers' class. The program was vari
ed with piano and vocal selections,
readings, and lastly the beautiful cc
pantomime, Holy City. The pretty
evening costumes worn by the girls
were quite appropriate to the occasion.
The color scheme in decoration was
red and green, which carried out per
fectly the Christmas spirit.
School closed Friday afternoon with
appropriate exercises for each grade
and each room, in which there was oI
either a Christmas box or a Christ
mas tree. There was the exchange of
many useful gifts and then a general is
feast of nuts, fruits, and candies.
Everyone enjoyed the good tmies and 3
appreciated the giving as well as the
receiving of the gifts.

in the oratorical contest. This cup
was sent with the best wishes of the

Arcadia high school welcomes back
at holidays the former students. As i
they come in for the little visits there
is always the feelings that they are
glad to be home again and enjoy com- C
ing to school. They say, without an d
exception, that "there is no place like o
home" after all.
We regret very much the fact that t
Miss Conger has been out of school
thi- whole week becautse of illness. \Ve a
hope that the New Year will find her
quite restored to perfect health. Her t
work was carried on by Mrs. Jack t
Davis part of the time and the last
tNo days by Miss Martha Fisher.

a beautiful lesson from the highly
