the eiceptlon of the first walter,
who was in yellow, were In white
lingerie dresses with broad yellow
girdles, and the same shade of rib?
bons for the hair. Each carried tri?
angles made of ferns and chrysan?
themums tied with ribbons. Miss
Grace E. Garnett was the manager,
and Mr. J. C. Garnett was the mas?
ter of ceremony.
Mrs. Elisha Madison played Men
delssohn'8 wedding march while the
party entered single file, one com?
ing up the left aisle and one up th.*

"t>??nlwel|. I Charge Thete, Fling
Away Ambition; By Thju Sta

80 the Immortal bard wrote, and
. recently one of the m?st gifted
teachers of the Normsl has repeat?
ed the injunction to members of
one of her classes. And ts there
no such thing as laudable ambition?
The word simply means "going
around," hustling ss lt would be
said now-a-days. And may not wo?
men and men too, go around, hus?
tle about, accomplish things and j
do no wrong?
Cowper links study and ambition:
together in thus using studious of
soi.?, an I et ambitious not to
siiii -a vain, bttily may be abused,
and ambition become a sin, and so
may sleep, work eating exercise,
etc.
