Recital at the Convent

A highly enjoyable recital was given by Miss Jeannette G. Sickle's class in elocution at the Academy of the Visitation last evening when the following program was presented to an appreciative audience and each number called for well earned applause:

"The High Tide," Senior Class.
"Seein' Things at Night," Miss M. Miller.
"Twickenham Ferry," Senior Class.
Waltz, Mandolin Club.
"Man in the Moon," Junior Class
"What an Old Spinning Wheel Said to Me," Miss M. Summers.
"Hieronymus Pop," Miss M. McGuire.
"Piano Solo," Miss E. Pampel
Scene, "Miss Ruggles and the Xmas Dinner," Junior Class

A fitting close to the evening's program was the presentation of a handsome gold pin to Miss Sickle by Miss Marie Harbin, who addressed her in the following words: "My dear Miss Sickle: It is my great pleasure today to offer you in the name of my loved companions a little memento of our sincere affection as also a tangible proof of our gratitude for your untiring efforts in our behalf. Being fully aware of our inability to render you a fitting offering, we will beg the all wise Providence who so tenderly placed you among us as one much beloved teacher, to reward you from the abundance of His treasury with peace, prosperity and happiness." By request, Miss Sickle then gratified her friends and pupils by the recital of "My Kentucky Bell," in her usual happy style, forming a perfect picture of grace, modesty, and ease.
