The four lower rooms of the Third ward school, taught by the Misses Carrie P. Krause, Carrie Wheeler, Pauline Wurster and Mabel Benham, held their bnmaae day exercises at the school on Friday affcernoon last. The illness and death of Mrs. Kellogg, mother of Mrs. Edson, principal of the school, prevented the upper classes from joining the exercises. A number of visitors were present, among whom were Trustee Ottmar Eberbach, exinayor Walker, J. J. Goodyear, W. N. Brown, Prof. A. Ten Brook and L. J. Lisemer all of whom expressed themselves as highly pleased with the exercises, which ir. their variety and fitness showed that mncn care must have been bestowed on them by the teachers. A feature of the occasion was the address to the scholars by Mrs. Skinner, who as Miss Hattie Boyd, was at one time a teacher in the school and introduced this kind of teaching in it before there was any Humane Society in Ann Arbor. She forrned a Band of Mercy of which one young lady. now a teacher in the school was as a little girl a meinber.
