The members of the class are request ed to meet at the opera house at 5 o’clock Thursday afternoon June 15. Graduating exercise in the evening at 8:30. Baptist Entertainment Mrs. Zimmer’s company presenting Little Lord Fauntleroy, at the opera house Saturday night, scored a triumph, age considered, from the very beginning. In fact the play has been presented by grown-ups and professionals with far less talent and understanding than that shown by the young people Saturday night. Mrs. Zimmer is deserving of much praise and credit, for it is due to her careful and intelligent training that the play achieved success. Gladys Janes wno assumed the title role exhibited real talent and endeared herself to the whole audience by her natural acting. Her sympathetic and loving attentions to “Dearest’’ won the admiration of all. Eva Towers who took the part of Mrs. Errol, Lord Fauntleroy'n mother, dis played unusual charm and magnetism. The whole character is o'erspread with the beauty of maternal love and tender ness which lost nothing in the treat ment given by Eva, whose musical voice was an added charm to her acting. The part of the handsome dashihg Mina, was well taken by Ellen Bannist er who possesses the charm, vim and go necessary to make such a character vivid and alive. Edith Church played the pretty, faithful maid in a manner permitting no criticism. Carl Hasty covered himself with glory by his intrepretation of the crusty Earl of Dorin Court. The dignity, pride of race and intolerance of the character, the gradual unbending and final sub mission to the loving advances of little Lord Fauntleroy were all brought out in an admirable degree by Carl. The acting of Major Towers as Mr. Barishan the family friend and lawyer was incomparable. Mr. Hobbs the grocer and Dick the boot black,' Mr. Will Mourning and Clyde Church added much to the performance by their act ing and make-up. Much credit is due Miss Hasty, who took a minor part in a most creditable manner with only a few hours notice. Will Hover essayed the part of the butler in an acceptable manner. Miss Doughty’s piano playing during the in termission was a treat and much en- The play was given under the auspices of the Ladies Aid Society of the Bap tist church who are much indebted to the public for their liberal patronage, to Mrs. Zimmer, those taking part in the play. Miss Doughty, Prof. Jones who held the unenviable position of prompt er and Mr. Maxwell who furnished the stage settings, as well as the band who volunteered to play in front of the opera house before the performance.

May 14. J. E. Hurley, General Manager. Possibly More Truth in Speech Than He Intended. There was an excellent man who. af ter serving his fellow citizens in Glas gow as a councillor, at length was promoted to the dignity of bailie, or alderman, as the rank Is < lied lb England. Though he was 1 >no the worse on that account. It Is the simple fact that his education had been neg lected. This he proceeded to prove— himself happily unconscious—ln his speech of thanks: “I canna but say. my friends, that I am proud of the honor of being made a bailie of this great city; and I am even, I think, entitled to the honor, for I have gone through a’ the various stages o' degradation that a bailie has to do to reach It!” This recalls the famous story of the councillor who objected to a pro )Osal to place a candelabra In the council chamber on the gronnd that they would need to pay some one to play It! Her Transformation. She drank quantities of water, ate a lot of starchy foods. Abstained from exercising every day; She assimilated lactic and a case of malt ed goods. But It seemed her fate to have to fade away. She so mourned attenuation, with a vis age like an owl's. That a smile upon her face was never seen; While below her mouth were wrinkles, and above her eyea were scowls. And her nose was Ilka a hatchet In be tween. But one day she fell to laughing In • strange, hysteric way. Juat In thinking how ridiculous It proved; And it mellowed to a cackle that was sane enough, they say. Till at last she giggled every time she moved. Why. she chuckled out her wrinkles, and she snickered off her frowns. And then took to all the things she shouldn't do; Now she's grown an fat as butter, and has outgrown all her gowns; But she laughs away at that disaster, teo. —Elliot Walker in the Woman's Home Companion. Turquoise the Stone of the East. | The best turquolges are found in thg celebrated Nlshapur mines In Persia, In which district are two whole vil lages Inhabited by turquoise miners, , who work at a depth of eighty or r ninety feet below the ground, breaking the rock with hammers. Upon a tur -1 quoise being discovered. It Is laid 1 aside in its rough state, and after -1 wards extracted from Its matrix by an | elaborate method. Besides these mines, there are others known as khaki (earth) mines, In which • the gems are found In loose soil, two or three feet below the surface. No Oriental, however poor, but manages to become possessed of a turquoise, even If It Is only In a tin setting. Spaniels Always on Duty. Spaniels are full of resource, and their exploits In retrieving wounded birds are wonderful. A small brown and white spaniel broke Its foreleg, which was set in stiff bandages hard ened with some preparation. It could only go on three legs, but hopped out after *ts master with the other dogs when these were taken for a walk. There had been a pheasant shoot, and the could not resist slip ping off to smell down the side of a small belt. It discovered a winged cock pheasant, dashed after it on l three legs and caught and retrieved It, j hopping Into the road with the big bird In Its mouth. —County Gentleman (London). Cultivate the Memory. Many people complain of having a poor memory, and yet that faculty can bo developed as easily as can the biceps muscle. Nor Is It necessary to go to any professor of memory or to master any elaborate system In order to accomplish this result. One does not have to go to a gymnasium to strengthen the arm or back. Chopping wood or rowing a boat will do It. Similarly, memory may be cultivated by an effort and amid ordinary pur suits. First Life Insurance Policy.
