For some reason "Children's 3 )nj " \
at that place was postponed until

to bo present on that happy occat inn.
Having been delayed at home foi
some timo that morning, we wore
rather late getting to tho picnic.
When we arrived we found th?! thc
exercises had already begun,
house, which is above thc average
of country School houses, was crow i
ed, nud several were compelled to ro

however, toa window, and found timi
the Hon. J. M. Johnston, of Mt
C. H. was occupying thc floor, and
holding his audience spell-hound, .:.
it were, with his eloquent strain of
oratory. His theme was the Stn:' .
School, and in a vivid and striking
mannor he presented thc opportun it tes
afforded by, and benefits derived from
that noble institution.
After Mr. J. took his seat, M .
Marcus Stackhouse, their eflic? ni
Supt., introduced Rev. J. R. Li ti Itv.
thc worthy School Commissioner of
Marion Co., who made a very inti /
esting address, confining his disec
principally, to thc public sein .
showing tho workings and effect
thc prescht free school system, nod
explaining several points of law i
gard to it.
Other speakers were called for .

responded. Thc well trained chou
