Miss Virginia Allen, principal of the South school, was director of the operetta with Mrs. R. 5. Brown as musical director and Miss Oneita Miller director of the speaking parts. They were given able assistance by the teachers of the South school. The execellency of the training that the young people received was evidenced in the fine manner in which the operetta was given an the histororion ie ability of the young people them selves was remarkable and the audi ence manifested their1 approval of the entertainment and their enjoyment of it by round after round of ap plause. Much honor is due the teach ers and the pupils for such a credit able entertainment. The proceeds amounted to $315.85. The scene was surpassingly beauti ful with pretty children in gorgeous and colorful array weaving grace fully in and out in light, airy dances. The singing parts were well taken and the lines were spoken with ease and anility. Music was furnished before and after the performance by the high school orchestra. This was the second of the com mencement plavs of the spring", Ihe North school pupils having given an entertainment last Friday night.

Then com?:; the North Wind, with Jack Frost and the Snowflakes to say that no flower has been seen in the great white spaces by frozen seas. The Fast Wind, accompanied by Autumn Leaves and Indian Fays, have also sought in vain every stream and in every woodsy dell. When the West Wind and the Chrysanthemums ad mit they cannot find the Flower Queen, Johnny Jdmp-Up again has to raise the drooping spirits of the Flowers. When all seems hopeless, a trumpet i heard, and the Boy Scouts appear, bringing the Flower Queen whom they have rescued, and the Weed lving, bound as a prisoner. The Flower Queen, restored to her Kingdom, leaves the iate oi the King of Weeds to her resources, the Bov Scouts. They decide to send the Weed King to the Wizard of the West who will transform him into a wonderful and useful plant. In .gratitude for her release and re turn to her dominions, the Flower Queen commands the Fairies to weave a spell of fertile fields and o-cnerous harvests and bestows this gift upon the Boy Scouts.
