One of the most enjoyable social
events connected with the history
of Claud was enjoyed at Lake
View Academy Saturday,, March
l8t,when and where about 40 pat
rons and pupils with their teachers
assembled for the purpose of par- j
ticipating in a fish fry. At about,
12:80 the good ladies announced 1
dinner ready, and we know no one
ever ate better fried fish, which
was abundant. After dinner all,
old and young,enjoyed themselves
at games of various kinds, the
most interesting being a game of
base ball, the champion players
being Messrs. Jas. Smith, R. W.
Hartley and R. R. Smith. The
weather was the only thing to mar
the pleasure of the occasion and
that only by preventing the at
tendance of more patrons and pu
pils. We anticipate having an
other in the near future, at which
we hope to see all.
