A UNION OF SCHOOLS -JOIN
IN PICNICKING AT
THE RUMMELL GROVE
From Saturday's Dally.
Yesterlay, to celebrate tlie close
of the school year, the pupils of
the Jean, Horning, Taylor and
Snyder schools assembled to the
number of some 200 at the Rum
niell prove, just west of Mynard,
to enjoy the day in picnicking-, and
they certainly had one of the
finest limes imaginable in the en
joyment of the da and it was
only with the greatest of regret
that they departed for their homes
toward nightfall. As soon as the
scholars5, under the chaperonage
of their teachers, Elmer Frans,
Hoy Hull, Jennie Livingston and
Florence Richardson, arrived at
the picnic grounds they began to
enjoy themselves at different
frames suitable for such oc
casions, and the girls of the party
looked after the welfare of the
little folks, while Ihe boys of the
Jean and Horning school tangled
in a red-hot ball . game, which
was won by the Jean team by a
score of 7 to (. Races of various
kinds were enjoyed also by the
boys of the party. The real big
feature of the day, howover, was
the picnic dinner spread at noon
in the shade of the trees and
which had every dainty that- it
was possible to think f provided
by the ladies of the party, and
was lopped off with ice cream and
lemonade provided by the fam
ilies residing in the districts. The
eent was one filled with much
pleasure t all who were in at
tendance, and the young people
feel very grateful over the good
lime that was provided them and
for the (hoiightfulness of the
teachers in arranging the picnic.

can be occupied by the lodge as a
club house. The handsome front
porch is being finished up and Ihe
while stucco finish will be placed
