The Junior Kormal Picnic.
The picnic toward which we
looked forward to with anxious
eyes materialized last Saturday.
The sun arose that morning bright
and fair and the picnickers' hearts
were filled with joy. Indeed some
were so happy that they forgot all
about bringing rain coats , and ev
en led iu giving three cheers for
the weather man.
At about eight o'clock four large
hay racks and numerous buggies
left the dining hall for the picnic
grounds. They reached Perry
Falls about 11 o'clock and at once
everyone scattered through the
hills , trying to get their fill of
some of the most beautiful scenery
in Nebraska. But when dinner
was announced no one was laggard
in trying to get their fill also.
About two o'clock it began to
rain and everyone sought what
shelter they could. Strangely ,
though several persons were
cheered , we did not hear , "what's
the matter with the weather man ? "
and the answer , k he's all right. "
However , it wouldn't have been
a picnic if it had not rained. Af
ter the rain cQased everyone was
willing to come home and left
earlier than was intended. When
they reached the fort a stop was
made and some made an inspection
of the barracks and listened to re
treat. All reached home feeling
fine and let the town know that
they were still alive by giving
normal yells and singing several
songs. If you want to know who
' 'bested" someone for their ice
cream , ask "Afer. " If you want
to know who had to seek shelter
in a claim shanty" ask the "Col
onel. " If you want to know who
had a good time , ask everyone who
