added considerable in the performance

About eleven o'clock we heard the
distant muttering of thunder and it told
of the coming rain w hich made its ap

the school; it thwarted the plans to some
degree for a' out two hours.
In the meantime the ciowd gathered

Alter dinner the crack game of ball
took place between the Joe Parson Blues

hard to tell which side beat. The only
way I could tell was by paying attention
to Charlie Edwatds who seemed to be
