Senior Clan Parly, The first event of the '98 Commence ment season was a reception given by Mr. and Mrs. Kiunison to the teachers of the high school and the class of '98, Friday evening, June 10. This party is always looked forward to with much pleasant anticipation by each class for the host and hostess have long enjoyed an enviable reputation as entertainers. There were games, music, charades and a fine supper, but the feature of the evening was a composite rehearsal. All the fourteen essaists and orators were drawn up in a line and at a given signal each, tired with all the enthusi asm, but none of the embarassment of the approaching graduation pluuged in to his piece. The result can better be imagined than described. From "The Birds of Killingworth" "Dustpans" and bacteria through the whole list of wit, pathos and oratory to 'His Soul goes Marching on," each member of '98 did his best declaiming and gesticulating as if alone before his prospective audience. The appreciative listeners declare it was the finest commencement ever giv en. After more music and games, the class bad their host and hostess good night and went home with many more pleasant things "to think on." Senior Concert Promenade. At an early hour last Saturday even ing it became evident that something unsual was going to happen on the school lawn. A tent was pitched near the school house with a long table in front covered with ferns and daisies, uiion which were placed great bowls full of most delicious fruit punch, while glasses aud ladles were suggestively near at hand and younx women ready to hand out the nectar. High over the tent on the school house front shown the blue and gold transpar aney of '98, proclaiming in whose honor these festivities were given. Quantities of Chinese lanterns lighted and decorated the front lawn, extending about its four sides in irregular lines among the trees. Torches were in plenti ful evidence also, stuck here and there into the ground, one torch being allow ed for each flowery letter of the words "Wellington Public Schools" which stretches across the middle lawn, while from the large flower bed rose a veritable tower of light illuminating the whole campus. As early as 7 o'clock members of the high school began to arrive with their friends who had been so fortunate as to secure an invitation; then teachers and finally members of the board of educa tion with their wives. Meanwhile the band had taken its place near the north entrance to the school house and shortly before eight o'clock began to play. People who had come into town either on business or to promenade in the park and hear the band as usual, soon found its whereabouts and followed to the school grounds, so there seemed literally "a cloud of witnesses" fringing the campus on all sides and even the street was crowded with carriages filled with people who had come to see a scene as novel as picturesque in our first Senior Concert Promenade. As the band struck up a march Mr. and Mrs. Kiunison fol lowed by the members of the board and high school promenaded about the lawn, around flower beds, torches and light tower winding in and out now a long line, now figures in graceful curves, until the music stopped, when the host and hostess invited their guests to go to the tent and have a drink, which invita tion was accepted and oft repeated for that "pink lemonade" was passing fine. The band began another march this time a bit livelier and now a regular grand march order was observed, march ing and countermarching, dividing and doubling, in single file, twos, fours, eights and sixteens to the gay music. What wonder it now and then some foot took a step extra or a toe lifted higher than strictest sobriety demanded! The long undulating lines of white gowned girls, moving on and about in the figures to time of distant music, the half lights of the Japanese lanterns and more than all the happy care-free hearts made the first Senior Promenade a thing of beauty and an event in our school history. Mr. Hollenbach and Miss Bates have established a precldent in their party, that the classes following will surely perpetuate for such a delightful feature of the commencement season conld never be passed over again. Our school campus is an ideal place for such a fete with only the one large building standing in the center of an entire square with its rods of lawn slop ing to the streets on every side and the winding walks, trees and flower beds about it. The weather was perfect for an out door party Saturday evening, old and young alike found it hard to say good night, but tarried to secure enough good time to last until another Senior Con cert Promenade in '99. Lat Day. Friday was last day in the grades and was appropriately observed. If Jhere is one thing our village glories in more than its electric conveniences und water supply it is our schools. Parents and friends turn out to hear the children and encourage the teachers. The rooms were resplendent with flags and bunting, even the sun shone through the windows in national colors. Patri otic recitations were given with a vim by many a would-be soldier boy and none were prouder than the fortunate lad who held high the flag for the school to stand and salute. - In addition to the usual class day ex ercises, two grades, B and C grammar had special flag responses. The teachers asking questions and some members of the school or often the whole school in unison replying, thus bringing the flag aud its history prominently to mind. The decorations of the B. grammar deserve special notice for their quantity and beauty. Ked, white aud blue were in evidence all about the room in flags and bunting draped about the walls. The floor of the rostrum was covered with rugs, and across its entire front were masses of ferns and ox-eyed daisies, giving a cool fresh and lovely effect to the whole. A Former Member of '08. Among the names of graduates from other schools this year is that of Miss Edna Lambert of Cleveland Central High-school. It not only bespeaks ex cellent scholarship on Miss Edna's part but the high rank of our own schools that a pupil can leave our high school and enter a corresponding grade in Cleveland and graduate at the same time as in Wellington. Miss Edna's record was an unusual one however, never in all her course did she receive other than a red card, 'OS Reception to '00. Once upon a time :iot long, long ago, it so turiMl out tha". two right valiant classes, one self samu day, chose the self same colors. And when they found what they had done, what, forsooth, did they more but try, to break each others heads! The juniors won, and " 'Twas a famous victory." And next they "kissed and made it up" so from that day since each year the seniors who are no more, give to the seuiors who are, a right royal spread. Upon the sloping lawp of Mistress Eidt was yester night one great and snowy tent wherein two class es met and played at games and feasted upon most proper nice sweet meats and other goodies of one Robinson's make. They toasted each other in fitting phrase and mingled colors, blue and gold of '98 and yellow and white of '91). At last from that portal fair and all bedecked with chinese,lanterus gay, from between the blazing transparencies on either side the entrance way, they betook them home, some happier, some sadder; for to some all is over, but 'twas a famous day, ""f '00 Reunion. Twenty-one members of the class of '9(5 assembled at the home of Harley M. Horr, Tuesday evening, it being the occasion of the fourth reunion of that class. Only five out af a class of twenty six, were absent. The tables were laid under a tent on the lawn, and after par taking of a bountiful repast some excel lent toasts were listened to, Miss Ethel Herrick acting as toastmistress. Ihe cool weatlier necessitated an early adjournment in-doors, where mus' ic, games, etc. helped pass the remainder of a very enjoyable evening. Ye Old Time Alumni Meeting. It may be of interest in connection with other Items concerning the schools to take a retrospect of the commencement and alumni meeting. The first one wag held in the school-house in the afternoon very much like any other last day. Then there came a lapse of a year or two be cause no class was ready to receive di plomas. The next class had so grown they ascended the pulpit stairs of the old white Congregational church and made the walls resound to their lofty flights of oratory. Hereafter the exer cises were held alternately in the Con gregational and M. E. churches, the class of '79 being the first to graduate in the new Congregational church. Now was built the opera house, spacious and beautiful and audiences filled to its greatest capacity. "Build tbou more stately mansions oh my soul. As the swift seasons roll." has-been the part of the graduates, The alumni meetings have now been gmmmmmmmimfflm I SPECIALS This is the place to buy your SPRING OUTFIT.

If your baby is delicate and sickly and its food does not nourish it, put fifteen or twenty drops of Scott's Emulsion in its bottle three or four times a day and. you will see a marked change. We have had abundant roof that they will thrive .in this emulsion when other ibo.l fails to nourish them. I: is the same with larger children that are delicate. Scott's Emulsion seems to be the element lacking in their food. Do not fail to try it if 'our children do not thrive. It is as useful for them in summer as in winter.

The home of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Under bill on South Main street, was the scene of a pretty but quiet home wedding, Wed nesday evening, June 15, when their daughter, Miss Harriet E. Underbill and Paul M. Johnson were united in mar riage. The house was beautifully decorated with palms and other tropical plants, while scattered here and there were bunches of fragrant roses. Promptly at 80'clock, Miss Edna Underbill played the Tauuhaenser wedding inarch, and the groom with his best man, Mr. Carl E. Underbill, brother of the bride, led the way to the parlor, one side of which was a floral bower, and it was beneath this bower that the happy young couple were united in the bonds of holy matrimony. Immediate'y behind them came the maid of honor, Miss Edith Randall, followed by the fair bride. Never was there a more impressive ceremony than that which was performed by Rev. M. W. Reece, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which the bride and groom are members. The bride, a handsome brunette, was beautifully attired in a gown of blue cheviot, trimmed with cream silk and point lace, and carried a cluster of American beauty roses. Miss Randall was gowned in white organdie over pink taffeta, and carried pink roses. Dainty refreshments were served immediately following the ceremony. The dining roomJwas especially attractive, each ta ble having a center-piece of pink roses and maiden-hair fern. Mrs. Johnston is a graduate of the La Grange high-school in the class of '95, and is one lot LaGrange's most popular young ladies. Mr. Johnson is a member of thejclass of '90 of the LaGrange high school. He is a gentleman of sterling worth and a capable business man.
