The ball was a huge success In spite of the dark and stormy night which we are sorry to say compelled our worthy friends Mr. Lammlo and family to remain at home. The Limhurg Or chestra supplied the muslo for the evening and It Is needless to say the musle was of the very best obtain able, and all credit Is due to the mu sician's and their popular leader, Mr. Carl Llmberg. Tho special feature of the evening was the old time dance "The Grape Vine Twist," which was danced In good old fashioned Way by the old timers of the district and called by the "old time caller" Jack McMullen. The dancing program onded at 12 o'clock p. m., and was followed by a toast to our new neigh bor, J. C. Little, after which the Teacher and Pupils Have Wwk-r'.nrt Vacation.

Th Physical Culturo girls are onjoylni themselves jumping rooo. rlscli where the boys cun look out and see them.
