The untidy conditiou of the

"if the wood, which is scattered

and if tbe dead leaves and grass
were raked off and the sunshine al
lowed to reach the new crop of
grass beneath, the spot would be
much more attractive.'

The entertainment Tuesday
night under the management of Mrs.
C. S. Ware, Mis. A. J. Coates and
Misses Dorion and Maddison was in
every way one of the successes jf
the winter. The old maids opened
the alTair and with their costumes
and manners of the girls of 50 re
ceived a hearty applause from the
audience. -The full urogram was
carried out in a most harmonious
manner. The tableaux vivants
were above the average amateur
work in that line. The hall was
packed by or:e of the largest crowds
it eer contained and the absorbing
interest given to every number from
liist to iai-t spoke in itself for the
high talent displayed by the per
formers. The proceeds were thiity
six dollars.
Nervous children are almost al
ways thin children. The "out-door-boy"

her classmates with a 'Valentine
Tea," on the 15th. Hearts were in

hidden titles had to be supplied.
Miss Lizzie Havenkolt aud Mr.
Minge Hardaway won the prizes,
the lady's being "two hearts that
beat as one," a pin, aud the gentle
man's a single heart pin. Original
valentines were read, Miss Pearl
Savage winning a heart-shaped box
of candy for her efforts .as a writer
of verse. It was discovered that
Mr. J. R. Cotes was more success
ful as a writer of sentimental
speeches than a speaker of the same,
a silver key-ring falling to him as a
prize for originality in that direc
tion. After such arduous labors,
su per wis gladly welcomed. Two
tibles firly groaned with hearts
of every conceivable delica
cy. The evening was one of great
pleasure and the popular hostess re
ceived the thauks of her guests.

When Cupid came as usual to take
possession of all creation upon his
natal day he was considerably non
plussed to find tliat several of his
arrows returned to him with their
points broken. At a Joss to know
the cau!e, he started over town to
investigate. When he reached Up
borne of Miss Ophelia Bills he kneu
what was the matter, for here wei
assembled the old maids of Bolivar,
against whose strong hearts his ar
rows were as nothing. Some of the
elaborate costumes caused him to
feel a giving way in the vital for
ces. Sinter Sophrouia Darrow fa
vored the company with some time
honored piano selections. Sister
Pegotty was voted by Cupid to be
the most decided spinster and Betsy
Trotwood the artistic old maid of
the occasion. A contest on age was
held anil Sisler Sophrouia Darrow,
being the best versed in age, was
awarded the prize, a copy of kThe
Four Kittens." The decorations
and refreshments were most charac
teristic and both displayed the ex
quisite taste of the hostess. The
spinsters charged the town late in
the evening, and having driven Cu
pid from the field, returned to their
homes well satisfied with them
selves and with many heartfelt
thanks to Sister Prudence for her
unique entertainment, which com
bined at once the perfection of el
