We ohiic before you to night,
dear friends, not as tin- Seven Won
ders of the world, the Seven Sacs
of Greece, or even the Seven
Sleepers, hut as the Seven Sis'trrs of
modern history.
Vou are all familiar with the
mythological story of the Pleiades,
and we claim a peculiar and fitting
resemhlance to tho.-e Seven Sisters.
Not on account of otir reat bcau'y.

never marry a inoiial. Neither do

mutual uhect ion, and each one lias

C.r.i we claim reseinhlance to a
hetter object in nature than the
constellation of the Pleiades, which
twiuldes constantly in the Tent
dome of the sky Idled, with myriads
of -littcnnr stars?
As we t;az,e on those far off lights
the teudcrest seiitimeuls of the
heart are aroused a feeling of re
spect ;inl admiration, of softened
melancholy, mingled with the
thought of God awakens within us.
In life we will not fear the dark
ness of adversity, but we will re
member that the stars shine bright
est on the darkest niht. Although
clouds hide the stars from our view,
yet they constantly shine as bright
as ever, so we will endeavor to make
life's pathway bright, even if the
clouds of misfortune compel us to
live in obscurity. We remember

The first number on the program,

dozen of the cutest, sweetest little
tots to be found in the town. They
all came onto the stae, twelve little
iris with ossamcs on and carry

was in accord with their dress and
was more than ood.
The wand drill, by- pupils from
Miss Searle's room, was very tine
and showed much patient trainim
"A Play of the Seasons," by pupils
from First and Second wards, was a
rollicking dancing party with
sprightly music. Much training
had been lavished upon them,
winch the actions ot the little mites
showed had not been in vain.
A dumb-bell drill by a lare class
of iirls from Miss Wilson's and
Mrs. Halsey's rooms was the next
production and showed a wonderful
proficiency in the drill. Tin-;

The last number on the program
was "Cobwebs." the juvenile ope

children took part. The Kini and

sweetly and in the proper spirit.
Little Kdna Petersen as Princess
Firefly was very cute and sanjr
better than many of the older ones.
Prince Grasshopper, a lover of
Princess J'irefly, was represented by
Leon Pepperberi; a diminutive
little man dressed in a suutr fitting
suit of bright ireen of the most
fashionable cut. Leon carried him
self like an old hand at the busi
ness and brought down the house
with his method of love-making.
Spidero, the enchanter, was enacted
very creditably by Georyre Sher

CAN the character be read from
the- handwriting-? Most assuredly
it can. Charactcr-readinn' from
handwriting is a fascinating study;
and if you wish to learn all about it
you must read the excellent and
profusely illustrated article, "How
to Read Character by Handwriting."
by Prof. Nelson Thorpe, published
in the July number of Demorest's
Family Magazine, and you will be
still more interested in the subject.
In the same number is a splendid
article on "Chili," which is particu
larly apropos at present; "Foes
Afield: Plants Poisonous to the
Stomach" is quite asseasonable,
and everyone can recognize the
j plants from the accurate illustra-
tions; in "Summer Outdoor Games:
Lawn Tennis, Badminton, Colors,"
they are clearly described; and the
amateur china-painter may rival
the professional by following the!
until j directions riven in "The Use of'
! Matt Colors." Besides, there are ,
stories am; poems, and over two
hundred illustrations, including a
superb water-color, a French cos
tume study under the empire, and
the numerous departments are full
to overflowing with valuable matter.
Briefly, this number fully main
