In behalf of those present Rev.
Ray , in a very appropriate speech ,
presented the Prof , a pearl hand
le letter opener.
In speaking of the selection of
Valentine for the location of the
Junior Normal , Prof. Gregory
said : "I have attended summer
schools at many places , but never
before have I heard so many complementary G
plementary remarks by the teach Gai
es. They are all satisfied with ai
the treatment received and have A
lad a most enjoyable time. I fc
leartily concurr in their opinion w
and have spent one of the most st
pleasant summers of my life. " G
If you toot your little tooter , and
then lay aside your horn there's
not a soul in ten short days will
know that you were born. The C.
man who gathers pumpkins is the It
man who plows all day , the man ai
who keeps on humping is the man H
who makes it pay. The man who M
advertises , with a short and sudden TJ
erk , is the man who blames the tii
iditor if it didn't work. The man jo
yho gets the business makes a lonj.r se
and steady pull , and keeps the miltU
ing paper from year to year quite w
full. He plans the advertising in by
a careful , thoughtful way , and w
forever at it , until he makes oi
it pay. Ex. . .tl
