One of our chums  owned a bat and ball, consequently  we had to elect him captain,and  permit him to go to. bat twice as  often ai ^ny other member of the  Hickory Corners Nine. Things  went swimmingly until a home run  was disputed, and the captain informed the budding Ty Cobbs that  i( the run was not allowed he would  take his bat and ball and go home.  Boys we're boys those days, and  money was just as scarce as at the  present day.  This week Principal Barnes, with  the approval of the school board,  completed arrangements with the  moving picture theatre for the showing of an exceptionally instructive  program. Proceeds of the concert  and show will be used to defray the  cost of purchasing baseball and  football paraphernalia, and the  balance devoted to installing swings,  teeters and other amusement devices calculated to please the girls.  , The idea is " both bright and  timely' and worthy support of all.  It is conceeded that pupils attaining high marks in exams are those  who"engage in sports that call every  dormant muscle into ^ play and  quickens the intellect.

For the  first  time  since  last, .October   thej  market is  showing a   tendency  to  halt   and     rest.
