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.
