social. The program consisted of an ad-

citations, declamations, singing and
instrumental music by the school.
Commissioner Lyster, made an address
on educational matters. Rev. Fr.
Goldrick also made a brief speech.
The auction sale of 85 boxes of good
things developed a lively contest. All
were sold at a good price, the sum

social part all that could be desired.
Everybody went home pleased with
the evening's entertainment.
