Tho matter of deciding upon hours

Is a difficult ono as all poriods seem

aro 12:15 to 12:45 and IJ to 0:30. Some
ovening hour can probably bo arrangod

for thoso who aro interested in ath

THE GLEE CLU1J SERENADE.

met -Jn tho chapel to start out for n
serenading tour. Although it Is not
exactly tlio tlmo of year whon sere

ant enough tc make outdoor singing
enjoyable. The boys were all mou
singing on tho gleo club this year or
some previous year so it did not take
muoh tilmo to got a dozon or moro songs

hard to furnish a wnoot.li nnrrntlvo.
About tho third houso thoy struck wns
dnrk, but a reil-hondod servant sltiolc
hor bond out of tlio third story window
so tlio boys stopped and gavo hor a

of saving tho pieces.
A. J. Woavor was roposlng peace
fully at Falls City and denies tho alle

speech at 'tho tlmo.
