Hurrah! Everyoue given " v a cheer. Vacation time will follow, and already the maids and matrons are planning where they will spend the summer months Everyone feels bright and happy, the flowers are bursting forth, the bees are beginning to buzz, tbe birds to sing and tlie butterflies to spread their pretty wings—and the butterfly maids are none the less enthusias tic over the jolly vacation time and the glorious frolicsome times it holds in store. Some are aglow with the prospect of travel and will revel in the sight of strange new scenes, others long for the seashore and cool sea breezes, a good book and a few companions. There are many who will seek the lake resorts, where they may row, swim and dance, ami glng by the-light of a booming camp fire.
