school in the district school system
of Connecticut. It has now been in
operation for several years and has
passed the experimental stage. Mrs.
Smith, who has been for many years
dentilied with the board of charities
n her state, held the attention of her
audience to the last minute of the
three quarters of an hour she ad
dressed them. The genuineness of
the interest felt in this movement
was manifested by the election of of
ficers and the formation of a society

meeting between the present aad past

gown of Scotch cheviot, with a cape
of dark blue cloth, and a nobby
round hat with a light feather.
