On tho 27th of November, 1878, a little

way to the homo of Mr. and Mrs, Lud

classmate, Pearl. Sho bears tho dis
fiction of being tho only ono in tho

tho ago of llvo sho entered school, and
has attended as regularly an her health
would permit. Whon eleven vearn old,
she went with her parents lo California,
where bhn expected to makn her fiiluie
home. Whila there, a (Jhinmnun fell i;
lovo with the little girl and became ver)
anxiotu to make her IiIb bride. In fact,
no much in earneat was he, that he of
fered her father ono hundred and lifty
dollars for tho covotod pri.-i. This, of

the poor Chinaman left, broken hearted.

to call .Mary. She has uhvava been of a

then, persisted in her ihiiiug deeds.

Our valedioiorian, Mamie K. Welde

moved to Knnaaa, and from there to Ne
braska when but a small child. Most of
her educatinu has been obtained in our

On tho t)th day of tho blustry month
of March, 1877, u weo chorub arrived in
Lincoln, Neb., tho chief possession of
Mr. and Mrs. O. O. Boll. Not many
dajs hud paeeed by whon tho name,
Jonnio Oortrude, was bestowed upon
tho first baby of that happy household.
At the ago of oightoon months, tho llrst
groat evont in Jennie's life took place.
Her proud and happy mamma took her
to tho baby show that wao held during
the fair, and, much to her delight, hor
darling baby carried olf tho llrst prize.
At tho ago of two yoara Jennie narrowly
escaped death from a Bovoro burn, but,
by tender nursing, alio wasBnvod to help
iiwell the number of tho Class of 'IK!,
When still email, sho went into tho
country to upend a few dajs, and, nB all
city-bred young ladies aro wont to do,
wnndoreiUabout to boo how thitigBiiro
conducted on a farm. Suddenly bIio

Whon asked tho ciiubo of her fright, bIio
Bidd, in a trembling voice: "Tho cow
looked croBB eyed at me!" At another
time alio saved a liltlo boy 'a life, and has
over sinco boon quite fond of that box.
At tho ago of fourtoon, she came to lire
in our midst and outored our schools,
Sho has complotod tho four years' course
in the high Bchool, nnd la now propared
to outer life'fl duties an I will leavothut
to our prophet.
Wo havo with ub, thia evening, the
proud piironts of two Bovonths of our
cae, and wo rejoico with them. Their
first child and oldest daughter, Lucy,
bears tho distinction of being our saint
atorian. Sho waa born in Sterling, Neb.,
Novomber f, 187(5, but, at an early nge,
had tho good sense to move to Rod
Cloud. Horo sho lino acquired hor on
tiro education. Tho record of horBchool
lifo might be summed up in tho two
words, " woll dono." Sho Into over os
caped tho toachors' reproving words,
and tins always boen vory studious,
Bpondiug her timo to her own profit.
When quite email, it was her delight to
commit voraesof pootry and repent them
to hor Boniorp, for which alio rocoivod
groat prniso. Lucy wub a great pot with
hor grnndparonts, and, on this account,
was called, by u jealous aunt, "The
(Jueon of tho House," and this waa
given hor na n pot nume. Whon only
four yenra old, eho wna oallod upon to
encounter with a raltlo snake, and, for a
time it beemed that the snake had got
the hotter of tho conflict, as hor lifo waa
dospaired of, but tlmtlly bIio rallied from
tho ell'ecte, and now recalls tho fact as
an unusual event. Aa Boon an sho ar
rived at an ago when oho could bo in
Kouiobodj'ri way, bIio took a great liking
to hour-e-keepitig, and Iiub not, ao yot
although it might bo expected taken a
diblike to it.
