I THE ART EXHIBIT
I At the Woodruff a Thorough suc:
I cess and Well Patronized.
I Tlie exhibit at the Woodruff school
I last Friday was undoubtedly one of
the most successful affairs: of the kind
ever given In the State of Utah, and
B by competent critics Is said to have
B surpassed like exhibitions by schools
In the large cities of the cast.
B From the kindergarten loom to
that of the 8th grade the work shown
H v was of the highest quality and ar
Hv ,V ranged with such artistic skill that
B the result was highly pleasing and a
Bj source of surprise to the great num-
bcr of patrons and friends who thron
B ged the building during the afternoon.
All the more credit Is due to the pu-
plls and the corps of teachers, when It
B Is considered that until just thrco or
foiir weeks ago there had been no in-
tcntlon of making any grand display,
so that the work shownmust ncccs-
sarlly have been done In a very limited
In Miss Fisher's room, where the
little tots are, the feature was the
free hand cutting and tearing of pa-
per, although there were specimens of
H other work that brought smiles to the
faces of those who arc interested In
I the work of children. Although the
m woric was not of a nature to attract
the idle sight-seer, yet the same artis
I tic skill was as greatly In evidence
I here as in the work of the 8th grade,
I whose splendid work of art created
such favorable comment, and tho
parents enjoyed it fully as much.
B In room 2, where Miss Rose Jones
B holds forth, charcoal drawing oc-
B -kcnpled the greatest attention and
was truly worthy of the words of
H praise from the visitors. The young
H sters, though but slightly in advance
H of the kindergartners showed some re-
markablc specimens In this work, and
the room entire, with the other work,
H presented a very charming appcrance.
B Miss Eva McKay's little boys and
H girls in room 3, engaged in color dc
IjK signing, and what the average young
j stcr at the age of these pupils cannot
B conceive Is hardly worth dreaming
B about. By the direction of their efllc-
ent teacher tho little people were en-
abled to produce effects that were
H very pleasing.
In room 4, presided over by Miss
Eva Jones, the specialty was story Il
lustrations. By tho use of colored
crayons, cut paper and tho carefnl
guidance of Mis3 Jones, the children
produced some very artistic effects. A
closet in the room was utilized as a
sort of "Pandora's Box" although con
taining nothing quite as dreadful as
was said to have been released from
that receptacle. Everything in tho
corner was as pretty as could bo and
f ' Tfime In for a great sharo of commen
dation. A house built and furnished
bs these pupils attracted no littlo at
Miss Howell's room, the 5th, pre-
sented a charming appearance with
H Its profusion of color designs.
I Tho walls wero literally covered
I with Scotch plaids, brilliantly colored
butterllies and birds, aud the taste
B and harmony displayed In the use of
B colors was something remarkable.
M Specimens of other work in this room
were also truly excellent.
m Not the least pleasant of tho work
In tho dlllercnt rooms was that In the
Oth, where Mr. W. II. Appcrly Is the
H instructor. The work hero was draw
H lngs in physiology, and tho palnstak-
Ing care of tho pupils was plainly cvl
B denccd by the high grade work pro-
j duced. Tho walls wero covered with
Bj excellent Illustrations of tho nervous
Bj system, tho respiratory organs in fact
K all subjects incidental to a study of
S physiology. Illustrations on tho black
K board attracted some attention and
Vm led to the discovery that Prof. Apper
JB lv ls u vegetarian.
In Mr. Cole's room the work con
slsted largely of Illustrations ol
solids, and relief map work, and the
excellence of everything displayed
held the visitors' attention for a con
siderable length of time. Tho solid
work was all that could havo been
expected from pupils of greater age
and experience, and tho relief map
work could not be surpassed by any
class of pupils in any school In Cache
Valley. This statement is not made
ill-adviscdly, for that is the opinion of
the many who were free In express
ing themselves. The work was very
interesting in this room.
However it was In the work of tho
8th grade, under Miss Cassldy, that the
greater Interest centered, not neccs
sarily because the work was of higher
quality, but by reason of tho fact that
the style of work appealed with
greater force. Here it was the girls
and boys indulged in the use of tho
brush and pallette, and to say that
the work was surpassingly fine does
not convey any idea of tho true artis
tic ability displayed. The walls wero
covered with works that would at
tract attention and favorablo criticism
anywhere, and framed and set on
easels about the room were produc
tions that were beyond either praise
or criticism of tho slght-scers. It
was hard to believe that the pupils of
this grade were capable of doing the
work, yet. It was given out authora
tlvely that the pictures were the
result of Miss Cassidy's careful in
duction and not her personal assistance.
The entire affair was such a pro
nounced success that it was decided
to give a holiday on Monday and per
mit the teachers of the county In
attendance at the Clarke lectures, to
view the exhibit, which was done.
The Board of Education and Supt.
Merrill were especially well pleased
with the showing made.
The Newton Reservoir.
By hard work on the part of citizens
of Nowton, together with help re
ceived from tho O. S. L. people, the
reservoir is now In good shape, and
did not break, as was feared last
week. On Friday night, the 13th,
at 10 o'clock p. m., citizens of the
Newton locality wero called from
their beds and told that the dam was
about to give way. Such an accident
did not occur on that night nor the
day following, but the citizens were
arouse'd again on Saturday night with
the same cry. An inspection revealed
the fact that It was necessary to do
something promptly, and tho only
thing feasible at the time was the
hauling of manure, which seems to
have been plentiful, for the haullnir
was kept np all night and most of the
day following. This added great
strength to the banks, and tho affair
held safe until Monday. On Monday
morning Supt. Calvin of the O. S. L.,
and tho head engineer made a visit
and inspection. The engineer report
ed that the dam Itself was safe, and
that If the citizens would fix tho
wasto ditch, the railroad company
would repair tho Hume, providing the
Newtonltes would stand tho actual
expense In tho way of timber. Of
course everybody agreed and the work
went on. The O. S,. L. bridgo gang
arrived on the scene Tuesday morn
ing and In the meantime the citizens
hauled ten loads of shade trees and a
hundred loads of cable stone and rip
rapped the side of tho reservoir which
gave signs of breaking. By the uso of
more than COO sacks of burlap the
bridgo gang was able to repair the
Hume, and In a short time everything
was safe and sound. The citizens of
the community appreclato tho kind
ness of tho O. S. L. people, for with
out their aid the dam would have
probably been swept away.
For Teachers and Students.
Dr. Newman, tho European eye
specialist of Pocatello, will make a re
duction of 25 per cent for teachers and
students. Remember tho date at
Eaglo Hotel, March 27, 28, 20, and 30.
Reduction for those dates only. Con
sultation free. Dr. Newman Is well
known in this vicinity.
THE A. C. MINSTRELS FRIDAY NIGHT
A Splendid Snccess as an Entertainment, and financially as Well,
The Students Settle Ip Old Scores With Professors.
The minstrel performance given by
tho Athletic Association of tho A. C.
last Friday was a pronounced succes
although a little long and rather slow
In movement. Tho audience very
nearly filled the large chapel, and 'tis
said the boys cleared about $200.
It Is generally considered that the
faculty of any big institution is legit
imate prey at one time or another
during tho year, and Friday evening
was the time selected for the slaugh
ter at the A. C The usual pointed
Jokes, takcoffs, and coon songs were
forthcoming and the affair was full of
such originality and spico that tho
evening proved a most enjoyable one.
Naturally enough, those who were In
touch with the college, the professors,
students and the work, could appre
ciate the most but there was some
thing for all.
As the curtain rolled up on the first
scene, "The Company" was seen seat
ed In a scml-circlo across the stage,
arranged In all the glory of yellow tics
and hose, white gloves and black
faces. Tho tics wero of such flaring
design and the hose so conspicuous
that each man looked most like a
smallpox (lag, and the white gloves
gave the Impression that the Hag was
going to its own funeral as pallbearer.
The boys rendered a medly of popular
and unpopular songs in a manner that
would have brought tears (of laugh
ter) to the eyes of an Indian cigar
sign, after which the "much ado
about nothing" mentioned in tho
program, was indulged in at the ex
pense of tho different Profs.
Taylor, of family cow fame, and
Tarbcttsang "Ping-pong" and then
gave an imitation of how the popular
game might be played with the feet.
They did the skirt dance, with a cake
walk Interlude, and buck and wing
finale. The boys were recalled.
D. Tarbct then made his appearance
and rendered a local doggerel on
Kingsbury and the college situation.
He was ably assisted by tho dusky
beauties behind him who echoed the
sentiment that our friend of tho Uni
versity had struck a knot when he
ran against Wm. Jasper Kerr. Davis,
(who by the way, would probably
develop into a new Pattl, if he would
use a Dcering cultivator instead of
the one at Salt Lake) rendered some
thing that wasn't a "Red, Red Rose"
as on the program, and was followed
by Brer Hansen, a lineal decendant of
the great tenor Mario. As tho sweet
ness of his tones died away, tho cur
tain closed upon tho offenders and a
new scene was shortly (?) presented to
Prof. Dryden and Co., an aggrega
tion that consisted of two darkles, a
basket of eggs, and two coats.mado its
appearance and proceeded to try to do
something funny, and only succeeded
in getting mixed up with the eggs in
a most undesirable shape. To sit
down In a basket of eggs or to tip
them over is said to bo Prof. Dryden's
favorite pastime, hence the Joke.
F. Shclton & Co., an aggregation of
rags, bundles, musical instruments
etc., proved a popular diversion and
entertained tho audience with a little
of everything they carried In stock.
They furnished some very good music,
and two of tho gang did a stunt that
was encored to a tlnlsh.
The third part of tho programme,
"A Midsummer's Nluhtmare" was all
that its name might Indicate. If
there was one present who didn't have
a midwinter's night horse beforo morn
Ing It was no fault of tho performers
In this part of tho program, and no
doubt tho Hon. "Wm. Shapcipoke,"
author, has had at least three every
day sinco tho boys attempted to pro-
ducothls work. Edward Talamantcs
Kirk, the 250 pound quarter back,
full-back, pull-back, hunch-back of
this season's football team, as Hcrmla,
was about tho proper article, and In
this maiden's efforts to retain the
love of Lysander, outrivaled Clarke
in his lecture on "Macbeth." With
bare arms and shoulders tho fair
Hcrmla was an excellent representa
tion of what may be seen every day
on the door steps in the French quar
ter of New Orleans. A loose robe of
green possessing a train of greater
length than travels over the O. S. L.
at conference time, and once worn by
the famous Madame De Hoolahan,
completed the picture. The beauty
carried herself with such charming
grace, and Indulged In language of
such sweetness that Lysander was all
but won. In marked contrast to thn
immensity of nermia, her lover,
Lysander, as characterized by Frank
lin Peter Harris, probably tips tho
scale at 15 pounds, but though small
In stature and avordupols was the
"real it" when it came to voice and
acting. The fairy "Oberon" was per
sonated by Fred Dale Pylc, tho same
who made such a hit as Juliet In last
year's performance of the famous
balcony scene. This young man had
hisO feet ten Inches Incased In but
little more than a smile and a breadth
or two of gauze, but handled himself
In such a, fairy-like manner that even
his wings looked natural. The
unfortunate part of tho story
is that Lysander, Instead of
loving the fair Hcrmla, who adores
him, is in love with Helena. She, in a
gorgeous pink waist and with white
ribbons, was enough to captivate
Cupid, and Demetrius In tho latest
buckskin leggings, derby, and with
a Colt's revolver sticking from his
belt, looked anything but the doughty
Aqulla Chauncy Ntbekcr but he it
was, and the way he "picked on" the
midget Lysander and finally shot him,
seemed unworthy the captain of a
great and unsuccessful football team.
The affair wound up properly by the
curtain falling at the right time
amid much applause. This part of
the program was supposed to be a
take-off on tho coming performance of
the "Midsummer Night's Dream" by
the Sorosls society, but the girls say
it was not a success.
After the audience had been given
thirty-five minutes in which to
recover from the strain produced by
tho "Nightmare," tho curtain was
drawn again and what was probably
the best fun of tho evening was Intro
duced. This was an "Auction Sale."
at which the bachelor men of the
faculty wero sold to the bachelor
ladies of the same. The young men
dressed to represent the ladles were
strikingly costumed and resembled
their subjects to a marked degree.
Santscht was the auctloner and
in his glory. Tho result of the
auction was that Miss Irtish of the
B. Y. C. secured Prof. Upham for
$80; Mrs. Cook got a Huttand Hutt
a Cook for something llko $00; Miss
Moench in a desperate struggle to se
cure any old thing, bid in her horse
for 83, and yet got left; Miss Pike
finally camo to tho conclusion that
showas "Jack's Girl," and that she
couldn't Pray Tonight; an effort to
dispose of Prof. Hill met with a dis
mal failure, $1 being tho highest bid
offered. Tho auctioneer felt that
thero was a young lady "down town"
who would tako him at $1.07, and
closed tho sale. A request that Prof.
Stuttered bo offered, met with tho
statement that he was "too young
and innocent," and a flat refusal to
Another lapse of thlrty-two and
three-quarters minutes, and the last
scene "A Student's Saturday Night"
was brought forth. In the thirty
two minutes, tho stage had been
wonderfully transformed, and for tho
first time In tho history of the school
presented a really comfortable
A cheery fire-place was In evidence,
and window tapestry tastefully ar
ranged, fencing foils, boxing gloves, a
Iwok-ease, tables, chairs, rugs, etc.,
strewn around rather artistically com
plcted a very pleasant scene. On Sat
urday night, students are supposed to
be hard at woik, but on this Satur
day evening the boys had decided to
have agood time, and one by one gath
ered at this room and proceeded to In
dulge in tho pleasures Incident to a
students life. The climax camo when
the "chief push" of the establishment
makes a raid and refuses to lm mniii.
fled until requested to sing. The
"push" in this case happened to be
Dr. Moench, who was requested to
sing one of his old Irish songs. The
genial doctor Is a product of "Ould
OircIand(?)and a graduate of the Dub
lin conservatory of vocal gymnastics,
and those who havo heard him In his
character sketches at the piano can
understand tho pleasure afforded the
audience. The boys followed with
college songs, and an Imitation of tho
college choir was prcttygood. "My Cre
ole Sue" received a shaking up and
"Kentucky Babe"w as soothed to sleep,
as was tho audience. Tho falling of the
curtain awoke them and a grand rush
was made for the 12 o'clock car.
SOJIi: OF Till! JOKKS.
"Why arc Dr. Moench'sChapcl talks
like a bicycle tire."
"Because they are lllled with hot air
wind and smoke."
"Mr. Primrose, canyon tell me why
Prof Calne's Chapel talk are like pat
"No, I can't. Why arc they like
patent medicine, Mr. Johnson?"
"Oh, cause they contain a little of
everything aad ain't good for noth
Ing." "Say, Mr. Pilmrosc, did you know
those Salt Lakers seem to realize that
this Is a real seat of learning up hero?
"No, Mr. Johnson, I didn't. What
makes you believe such a thing as
"Oh well, haven't they been trying to
sit on us lately?"
"Say, do you know tho oldest book
that was ever written?"
"It was Genesis I think," replied
"I know an older book than that,"
Well, tell us what It is, then."
Oh, It's the song book used by the
A. C. choir.
This Joke can bo appreciated better
when it Is known that tho one now in
use Is the same that was used the first
year of school at tho A. C.
"Mr. Johnson. Can you tell me what
part of the face the Attendance Com
mittee reminds one of?"
"No, Bre'r Rastus, I can't. What
part of the face docs it remind you of?
"Oh, it reminds mo of the eye-lid."
"Why, how docs that come.
"Why don't It always have a pupil
"Say, you know Beers, commandant
of the awkward squad, don't you? Did
you hear what he received for Christ
mas presents a wife, baby buggyand
a ten pound can of yeast powder."
"Well, that was pretty nice, wasn't
It, but what on earth did anyone give
him 10 pounds of baking powder for?"
"Oli, that's to help raise the family."
"I know a better ono than that.
Prof. Clark feeds his cattle yeast cakes
"What's that for?
"So they'll bo better bred."
"A. C. Merrill has a very dear lady
friend, you know. The other day sho
asked him to show her the geometrica
shape of a kiss."
"What happened then?"
Well, 1 don't know, but fellows In
the next room got the Impression that
the ans.vcr was "Elyptlcal."
"Did you know Profs. Upham and
Stuttered are becoming fond of horti
culture. "No, Johnson, I didn't. How do you
figure that out?"
Well, don't they both sit up most
of Mio night watching the pretty lit
tle Bushes grow?"
SOLUTION OEEERED I
How An "Old Timer" would settle H
Tabernacle Qnestlon. H
Dear Sir There is a great deal
of discussion prevailing now In regard '
to selling a portion of tho Tabernaclo H
Square. It is not my Intention at H
this writing to take a part on cither jB
side of the question. 1 will say this, H
however, that no ono or two men H
should decide this question. For their
own good In the future, they should
not want to assume this responsibility. H
If they do, a restraining order may be !B
placed on tho transaction. In order !B
that no one or two men shall bo ccn- j
surcd, but that the body of the pcoplo jM
may bear tho responsibility, let thero jH
be a mass meeting held in the tabcr- ;H
naclc, of all the tax-payers of Logan H
City and there let tho proposition bo H
voted on, yes or no, and let tho ma- B
Jorlty vote rule. Tho meeting should B
be free from speeches cither for or ' H
against tho proposition. Merely an H
announcement of the object of tho B
gathering and then vote. Let the B
people be untrammclcd, and perfect- H
ly free, and then the responsibility will B
bo attached to the pcoplo and not to B
any particular two or three Individ- B
"ills. Yours etc., M
Old TiMicit. H
Dr. Karl Moench Resigns. B
It Is given out that Dr. Karl Moench
has tendered his resignation to Pros. B
Kerr, and that it Is his Intention to M
leave Logan at tho end of tho present B
school year. Last January tho genial B
Dr. was tendered a position In connec- ,B
tlon with a military school in Mis-
sourl, and after due consideration has jB
decided to accept. Ho goes as an jB
associate In tho work and not as jB
Instructor. The school is mentioned !B
as being of considerable importance, IB
ranking high among military schools. jB
Dr. Moench has held the chair of IB
Modern Language and Latin in tho jB
A.C. during the past two years and B
his work has been very successful. B
This change will take Mrs. Moench B
from tho dormitory which will bo B
much regretted by the students, who IB
regard her as being tho most satis- jB
factory matron tho dormitory has B
ever had. Both Dr. and Mrs. Moench jB
have a large circle of friends among B
tho townspeople who will regret to ' ii 1
have them leave tho city, but will rV'
wish them much happiness and sue- j "Vp-'., ' B

It was announced through tho B
papers of the city some two weeks ago B
that N. M. Hansen would retire from B
the position of miller at tho Dcscret B
Mills. Matters have assumed a differ- B
ent phase entirely in tho past few B
days. W. D. Hendricks and N. M.
Hansen have bought tho Central Mills. M
The prominent farmers in tho sur- B
rounding country will bo visited with M
the Idea of cntcrcstlng them as stock- M
holders In the new company, thereby iB
changing the Central Mills Into a M
genulno "Farmers Co-op Grist Mill." M
A move of this kind would certainly ;
bring prestige and custom to the new M
company. As far as Miller Hansen is M
concerned, who Is expected to run tho fl
mill, comments are unnecessary.
