nate Friday afternoonat , 2:30 : o'clock. P.
M. All are cordially invited to attend.
Tho advanced class in reading has
read the following exercises : Extracts
from Shakespeare's plays ; Tennyson's
Enoch Arden ; Irving's Sketch Book ;
Longfellow's Miles Standish. After
reading a production of an author the
class is , asked to give a reproduction of
the same in his own language.
Following is Miles Standish repro
duced by one of our pupils :
The room in Miles Staudish's house was
small and built in the style of olden times.
There was a shelf hanging high up on the.
wall , on qneside of the room , filled with large ,
well-worn books. Near the centre of the
room was a table and on it a boquet of May
flowers and some books. On the walls were
lire-anus and armors , "Burnished as if in an
arsenal hanging. "
Miles Standish was the captain of Ply-
John Alden was a young man of the Saxon
type , having light hair and bine eyes. He
was the secretary of Miles Standish. Miles
told Alden that , when he got through writ-
inghe had something to tell him. A'ldenthcn
closed the book , saying that ho was always
ready to listen to anything he had to say.
The captain then told him that he was in love
with a Puritan maiden named Priscilla , and
that he wanted him to carry the message to
her. John was in love with her too , and did
not want to go. Ho told the captain to follow
his own adage , "If yon want a thing well
done , do it yourself. ' ' But the captain said
that it should be used with discretion , and
not waste powder and shot.
When John reached the home of Priscilla ,
she sat by the window spinning. She arose
as he entered , telling him how lonesome she
was , and that she almost wished herself back
He said that he did not blame her , for ,
"Stouter hearts than n woman's had quailed
in that terrible winter. " He then told her of
the offer of marriage he had brought her.
She asked him w'hy the captain did not come
and tell her himself. He told her the captain

was busy and had no time for such things ,
and went on praising his courage , telling how
he had been defrauded of a vast o.state , etc.
She said if he did not have time before mar
riage he would not be apt to have it after.
She said that men thought women would ac
cept the first ( ilfor , whether they had ever
surmised such a thing or not. Hut said she
would never marry the captain , anyway , and
ended by saying. "Why don't you ask for
yourself , John' ' "
He went to the captain and told him of the
interview. The captain was very angry and
said that he had betrayed him ; that hence
forth there should be nothing but war ami
Soon after thN , came a messenger saying
that the council was in session and needed
Miles. It seems that an Indian came from
their camp bearing the skin of a rattlesnake
filled with arrows , which was taken as a.sign
of hostility , and they wanted to know what
answer to send. Miles returned it filled with
ammunition ; telling him.that was his answer ,
to take it and go.
Miles went out to light with the Indians ,
and a man came to town saying lie had been
killed ; that the Indians had beguiled him in
to an ambush , and that the town would be
burned and the people murdered. Of coin-so
every one felt sorry over the dcafii of such a
1'riscilla and John were married ; and as
the ceremony was concluded , they saw Miles
Standish .standing in the doorway. He came
forward to congratulate them , saying he had
been angry long enough and he wished to be
\friendagain. He. also said that he should
lave remembered his favorite adage , and
that he ' 'Could not gather cherries in Kent at
Christmas/ ftcrward be was married to a
maiden named Barbara whose surname is
