They were all ill during the night except the oldest daugh ter and the baby, who had eaten none of the poisoned food. As the hours advanced all grew worse and sometime Monday fore noon Mrs. Ginn went into convulsions. Physicians were hastily summond and for a time it was feared she would not survive but by the close of the day all were out of danger and are now completely recovered. Elect City Teachers. The schsol board held a session Monday night and re-elected the following teachers: Misses Susie Frazier, Inice McCorkle, Lulu Duncan, Katherine Duffield, Bess and Fay VanBoskirk, and Messrs Carson and Hayes. Five more are to be elected. Another meeting will be held tonight. Salary Should be Increased. Postmaster Tash has submitted to the Department an exhibit of the volume of business transacted in the office for the month of April. It shows the approxi mate population supplied by the office to be 8,ooo and that he is handling the business of a second-class office with 'third-class facilties and compensation. Nearly eight hundred mail sacks were received and dis tributed, made up and dispatched during the past month. Mr. Tash and his assis tants are obliged to work from twelve to fourteen hours per day and the present compensation is certainly inadequate. The Maypole Party. Much praise has been bestowed upon the Maypole party given, by the younger pupils of Miss Minnie Morris' dancing classes at the opera house last Friday even ing, many declaring it the best entertain ment of the season. It certainly reflects much credit upon Miss Morris' ability as an instructor and upon her pupils ability to interpret the Terpsichorean art It had a very good attendance. Moore's orchestra furnished music for. all the dances by the class, Miss Mcrris plajing for the others We give the program: Song "I Got Mine, Boys." Minuet Virginia Broome. Wirth Helen Broome, Leota Mollring, Gwendolin Johnson. Alice Morris. Two-step Class, Varsouvaiana Glide Nellie Elmore, Vir ginia Broome. Spanish Yorke Francis Lockwood, Gwen dolin Johnson. Tambourine Dance Virginia Broome, Ruth Morris. Song and Dance "Won't You Play House With Me?" Larnia Johnson. Waltz Class. Fisher Maiden Josie Hampton, Butterfly Dance Alice Morris. Manitou Class. Cream City Minuet Kate Feather, Lar- ma Johnson. Umbrella Dance Helen Broome. Mirror Dance Leota Mollring, Alice Morris, Double Skirt Dance Helen Broome, Leota Mollring, Alice Morris, Gwendolin Johnson. Maypole Dance Class. Each number is deserving of special mention but space forbids. The umbrella, mirror and double skirt dances were es pecially beautiful. The mirror dance is Miss Morris own production and is quite ingenuous. A frame was draped at top and sides, the two girls were much alike in appearance and were dressed so that one dancing back of the frame facing the audience and the other dancing in front with her back to the audience gave the impression that the one in front was danc ing before a mirror, their movements be ing in perfect unison. The song, "Won't You Play House With Me?" was heartily enjoyed and the young singer understands well the art of "singing to' her audience. One little tot, LaVaughn Moulton, who is scarce three years old, waltzes and two-steps in a manner that grown folks might congratulate themselves upon. After the conclusion of the program many of those present spent two or three hours in dancing. Eight Pages Home Print.

Commcndflblo Changes. Tho action of the city council in separat ing the office of water and street commis sioner and appointing a night policeman is of apparent benefit to the city Tho duties of the water commissioner are sufficient to occupy the entire attention of one man. Tho salary is $65 per month. The marshal will also bo obliged to act as street commissioner. His salary is fixed at $75 per month nnd nil fines collected shall be turned into tho city treasury. It has frequently been said that whenever you want tho marshal he cennot bo found. When there is only one marshnl you can not expect him to bo on duty twenty-four hours iu a day, hence tho need of a night policeman. His salary will bo fifty-five per month. Thissorvicc will cost the city but little morn than heretofore nnd the ad- vantngos to bo derived therefrom arc many. 'I he appointment of R. C. Nolemnn as city attorney, M, A. Shay, marshal and street commissioner, Albert Wiker, night police man and A. F. Mollring as water commis sioner, shows good judginent on the part tho mayor.
