High School Minstrels. One of the most successful events of the yea: and one which brought much glory to the high school, was the min- strel show given by the boys of the school on February 25th. The curtain rose hefore a crowded house, and the boys marched in. wear- ing the fOOt-bali sxx'ezlters of the high HARRY BROWN school and college PHANACEH MINSTREL SHOW :1 11 i1 singing t h e opening vhumx :lwumpzmied h-x' Duffy and Byersi or- vhwlm. uhich furnished the music for the evening.

Robert Si- mon and Pearl Byers, did exceptionally well, never cracking a stale joke throughout the evening. The hrst part of the program consisted of popular songs: ti iNeath the Old Cherry Tree, Sweet Marie," Harry Young ;ttI,m'Saving Up My Money for a Rainy Dayf, Harry Brown; itAll I Get Here Is tMuch Obliged to Youf ,, Calvin Bard; HWo-nit You Waltz tHome, Sweet Home, With Me," Ned Anderson; ttWhat the Rose Said to Me? Lester Null; HSweet- heart Days? Harold Bostick; tTm Afraid to Come Home in the Dark," Robert Simon; ttBrother Noah Gave Out Checks for Rain? Pearl Byers; tiYovu've Got to Be American to Feel That Way? Emmett Taylor. The second part consisted of a Cornet duet by Lester Null and Harold Sessions; songs by 'the Curb- stone Quartette, composed of Harry Young, Harvey Lowe, Ned Anderson and Lester Null, who received great applause from the audience for their clever sing- ing and acting; the skillful buck and wing dancing of Harry Brown and Pearl Byers; and acrobatic feats of Roy Montford, Guy Moats and Freddie Hoffman, which called forth enthusiastic praise. Thus ended one of the best amateur entertain- ments ever given in Benton Harbor, as everyone who saw the show will tell you. Much credit is to be given to Miss Clara Fields, who played the piano at all the rehearsals and helped the boys to success. Har- ry Brown, also, is not to be forgotten, for he success- fully managed the show and turned over a neat sum of money to the foot-bal'l boys for their Bis, Which they certainly deserved. 5.

If you ever are in need of anything, write to me and I will do all I can for you. Good-bye? Christmas vacation came and Mrs. Elliott thought of the Yule-tide of a year ago when they had lived in the big stone mansion on the hill in comfort and in the midst of plenty. XVhat a contrast! A poor little makeshift of a cottage, and a modern stone palace! At Christmas-time last year Mr. Ellliott had been alive and well, fully able to take care of his wife and daughter. He had owned the big stone house, and a good-sized and steadily increasing bank account was the result of his thrift and industry. One night when coming home from 'his ofhce he had been robbed, mur- dered, and left in the road where his body was found early the next morning by a passing pedestrian. Upon looking through some papers in Mr. Elliottis desk, an old mortgage was found. It was due in less than two weeks, and as Mrs. Elliott could not pay it, creditors took charge of the estate. Last year they had plenty of money to purchase presents for friends both far and near; this year no presents would leave the house excepting those which Gracels ingenuity could derive at an exceedingly small cost. She had considerable talent as an artist, but even this demands money. Christmas was to come on Tuesday. The pre- ceding Friday school had closed for a two weeks, va-
