Several members of the company
which left here Tuesday, were for

indeed proud of them.
The general exercises in Hall No.
4 last Monday morning consisted of
patriotic songs, recitations, readings,
etc. "Dixie" was greeted with such
a round of applause as to call for a
repetition of it.
The pupils of the High School de
voted Friday afternoon of each
week to the discussion of current
topics. Last Friday the Belliger
ency Resolutions and the Carlists
Claims were discussed.
The seventh grade pupils are now
making a study of "The Merchant of
Venice," and the fifth grade has just
finished the study of Holmes'
The pupils of the sixth grade will
complete their course of study for
the year this week, and will then
have ample time for a careful re
view before the final examination.
The Salamagundi Society held its
regular meeting Wednesday after
noon. Burin was the subject for
discussion and study, and several

The fourth grade pupils are at

ar very good.

At the last meeting of the Faculty,
it was decided that one pupil from
each hall should recite at the com

the Opera House, and that the pupi!
of eah hall should select their
representative. The following pu

E tch hall is to have a special re
ception day at some time between
now and the close of school, when
patrons of the school will be invited
to examine the work of the children
for the year.
Which is better, to thoroughly
cleanse and purify the blood just
now, or make yourself liable to
the many dangerous ailments
which are so prevalent during
summer? Impurities have been
accumulating in the blood all
winter, and right now is the time
to get rid of them. A thorough
course of Swift's Specific is needed
to cleanse the blood and puri
fy the system, toning up and
strengthening it all over. Those
who take this precaution now are
comparatively safe all summer;
but to neglect it is to invite some
form of sickness which is so com
mon during the trying hot season.
It is now that a course of Swift's
will accomplish so much towarc
rendering the system capable q'
resisting the evil influences which
are so liable to attack it during
the summer when sickness is so
abundant. It is the best tonic
aud system-builder on the market,
because it is a real blood remedy
and is made solely to search out

supply an abundance of pure, rich

THE BOOV BEAUTIFUL.
Boone Voints on How to Obtain a Good
Figure and Graceful t'arrlutc
A thoroughly practical article on" Phyi
lonl Culture For Girls," by Knthnrine
Eggleston .lunkcriniuin, in The Woman's
Home Companion, contains these simple
directions for homo gymnastics:
"Systematic exorcise can accomplish so
much that it Is n iniirvcl to onjj who has
enjoyed its benefits that it is not moro
generally practiced. It is entirely unnec
essary to Iw mistress of a systi m of phys
ical culture. There are a few excrclsea
which, taken regularly and thoroughly,
will accomplish all that system would.
The tendency is, however, to ho unsys
tematic in taking these exercises and thus
lose their good effect. It is best to take
them at night. In t udroom slippers and
loose gown, with no bands to bind, no
collar to rub, a girl Is ready for the exer
cise that will miiko her rest ns tranquil
and sweet as a baby's. F.very muscle of
the hotly Is free to stretch, to stiffen with
effort or to rest itself in complete, relaxa
tion. "Clubs, dumbbells and othor gyinnnstlo
paraphernalia are unnecessary and really
are more harmful than bonellclnl. Grasp
ing the bells enlarges the knucklcF, the
friction of the clubs hardens the hands,
and ns It is quite as easy to do without
thorn they are better unused. After all
preparations for tied are made, even to ar
ranging the rather flat niul somewhat hard
pillow, stand before your glass and begin
your exercise. There Is a real delight In
WfiUihlng the strong, easy movements of a
healthful woman. And this easo and
strength are within the reach of nearly all
women. The Hat chests, shapeless waists
and badly formed hips limy be at least
partially remedied, and it requires only a
little cflort and persistence to Accomplish
It. Too many women luck crt.istcnce. In
stead of conscientiously Inking their exer
cise every day they skip a day when they
are feeling tired or lazy, thci two or three
days at a time, and eventually they learn
to forget it or decide that the. game is not
worth the candle.
"To develop breadth of chest plneo the
bands on the waist lino a little back of the
hips, the fingers pointing forward. From
this position move the elbows slowly back
toward lucb other, making them come as
nearly together as possible Do this sev
eral times, counting four us tho elbows ap
proach each other and two to recover Kisi
tlon. Dy counting to these movements a
harmony Is attained which will develop
the muscles evtnly."
