On Monday evening last a very
pleasing entertainment was- given at
the Lewiston school in district No. 7,
cast of Murray, by the pupils of the
school, assisted by the teacher, Miss
Mabel Donat, who has just closed a
very successful term of school in that
district. The entertainment was given
for the benefit of the patrons of the
school and was quite largely attended
by the residents of that locality. The
program was one of more than usual
merit and consisted of a number of
musical selections by the young people
of the school, which were most tle
lightful in every way, while a num
ber of leadings and recitations by the
different scholars proved an enter
taining feature of the evening's en
tertainment. The program was quite
extensive and consumed a greater
part of the evening, but at the close
a most delightful ice cream and cake
social was held that was most thor
oughly enjoyed by the scholars and
the patrons of the district who were
in attendance at the pleasant event. To
add to the enjoyment of the occasion
the Victrola furnished a number of
selections that were thoroughly ap
preciated. The young people of the
school are deserving of much credit
credit for the splendid manner in
which the program was carried out.
Miss Donat, the teacher, is also well
pleased over the successful outcome
of the event.
