Granger's Academy, on Saturday ev nlng presented a gay and animated scène when the little folks who had grathered at the juveniles' fancy dress dancing party given by Mr. and Mrs. Oranger to their present and former pupils appeared on the floor in the grand march and polka. Headed by little three years old Teddy Granger, they went through the intricate movements with surprising gracefulness and ease. Bach one carried a gaily decorated hoop, and the different shades and colors used in trimming them served only to further brighten the pretty scène. Following the grand march was a solo dance, the "Highland Fling," by Miss Jean Ostrander, whieh was excellently dawced and called forth rounds of applause The "Gavotte and Maypole" dance by Winifred Clark, Ila Weaver, Millie Waite, Lena Sorg, Elsa Plstorius, Emma Dieterle, Lois Campbell, Cora Minks, Cortland Marsh, Lillian Cousins, and .lay Ferguson, George Kemp, Arnold Blitz, Willie McLean, DeHull Travis, Clinton Millen, Richard dePont, Willie Dieterle and Southard Cutting was very prettily danced and much praise was accorded the little dancers.

On its conclusión a solo not on the program was danced by little Teddy Granger, who danced portions of the "Hornpipe" in a style that caused unbounded amusement to the spectators.

Farhan, Cecil James, Harry Scott, Bradley Granger and Southard Cutting, and the "Wreath Dance" by Sarah Hardy, Louise Hennequin, Beatrice Yale, Lulu Liesemer, Pauline Hayes, Jean Ostrander, Clementine Yale, Flossie Adams, Annie Foster, Luella Granger, Bessie Stafford, Cortland Marsh, Lillian Cousins Cora Minks, Winifred Clark and Lois Campbell were both pretty dances in which the little ones "did themselves proud." The program of the fancy dances was concluded with the "Tamborine Dance," by little Miss Morton and Bradley Granger, which was very pleasingly rendered. A society program of ten -numbers interspersed with light refreshments wound up an evening's entertainment which will live in the minds of the little folks - and of older people ulso - for many a day to come.
