Akers I On Thursday evening, not? withstanding the downpour of I rain, a large audience was pres.. eut at the very delightful and I entertaining recital given by Mrs. Bailey's music pupile. I Owing to the inclemency of the weather several of her most ail vat.cod pupils wore unable to be present. Notwithstanding this the program rendered was ex-\ COlletlt. The pieces were all rendered; especially tllOSO of the younger children who had only taken 111IIdie for the pa?l session. All of her older pupils showed j marked improvement over last year. The Milk Maid Drill and i hinese Umbrella Drill were es? pecially enjoyable! The parents of all of the chil? dren were very much pleased and grntilied at the progress made during the past session und feel that great credit is due to the indefatigable industry and untiring energy of their teacher, Mrs. Bailey. Mrs. Bailey has taught with splendld success here for a number of years, the past year being one of the most successful of her teaching. Both parents and children are very fortunate in having the services of one who is so capable, thorough, ener? getic and industrious. Music Recital Sensational Flying ^ Dip of Death War Maneuvers ?
