Society
---------------------
Oh, the happy days of boyhood
When we harvested the corn,
When the golden tinted maples
Blazed out at early morn,
When mother did the cooking,
While we were standing by;
And watched the rich crust rising
Round the luscious pumpkin pie.
--John McMaster.

Y. M. C. A. ANNOUNCES GYMNASTIC EXHIBITION
---------
Mr. V. G. Derryberry, the physical director of the Central Y. M. C. A., makes the announcement that he will present his first gymnastic exhibition in the Association gymnasium on the night of November 27th—Thanksgiving night.
This will afford the public an opportunity of witnessing the character of the work which is being carried on at the Central. All classes will participate in the exhibition, and all phases of the work will be shown. The public is cordially invited to be present at this entertainment, which will be free of all charges.
The Junior Class will present their percussion dumb-bell drill and elementary tumbling, featuring letter building and military marching. The Intermediate Class will present the Turner Wand Drill, Pyramid Building, as well as exercises on the Long Horse and the Horizontal Bar.
The younger girls’ class will be featured in free-hand exercises and recreational games. The ladies’ class will appear in the Lerverscevienne Waltz, both in class and couple formations, and will also __ in free hand work. The various classes are rounding up in fine shape and prospects point to their being in the best of form by the night of the 27th.
Mr. Derryberry will be seen in action also. He does not believe in entrusting the carrying on of his work to others, and he will personally lead and direct each class during the exhibition. In addition, he will be seen in action on the flying rings and the parallel bars, as well as in weight lifting and balance movements. He is endeavoring to secure for the exhibition Mr. Joe H. Wilson, of Jackson, Tennessee, his old tumbling partner, to assist him in the presentation of the more advanced ground and lofty tumbling work.
An earnest invitation is extended to the people of Huntsville to be present on that night, and Mr. Derryberry urges that all keep this date in their mind.

IN MEMORY LUCILE FISKE
---------------------
As the October days were drawing to a close the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Fiske, near the little village of Hazel Green, Ala., and took from them their youngest daughter, Lucile.
Lucile was a bright, sweet girl, loved by all. For some time she had been in ill health, but during bright summer days she seemed to gather strength and was able to visit her friends and play with her pets. This was a source of pleasure to her and to those who loved her. For a while their hopes were brightened. They thought Lucile might regain her health and be strong once more but the hopes passed with the setting sun and they looked forward into the loneliness of the coming night when the flower of the home would be transplanted in another soil. Lucile bore her suffering with patience beyond her age but the darkest and most dreaded of all nights followed when the dark angel of death blew his icy breath into the face of their loved one and her soul flew away.
