M. Walters offered three, prizes, one
for punctuality, which was won by
Henry Jordan Mcln'vale; the second for
deportment, which was won by Miss
Millie Butler; the third for orthogra

between Misses Mollie Butler and
Anri* Clara Lilly; Mollie having gained

proud of his school; If the patrons ^
succeed in keeping Mr. Walters for
another term, may it be as pleasant
