THE LIMIT. 9 faces of a smiling young French girl and another young girl with a very Grave coun-W tenance. The artist will refuse all offers for this picture and will keep it hung in a promi- nent place in his studio to remind him of thi happy days spent in Phelps. As the years pass on his fame as an artist will increase and his paintings will be eagerly sought after by all lovers of art. i NYell pleased with the future revealed by this page. I unrolled the next one. This bor. the name of Laura Durand. Miss Durant will enter Wellesley in a few weeks. XN'liili' in college she will be especially noted for hei fondness for theatricals. VVhen not arrang ing-for plays to be given by the students, she will most always be found at 'the theater I-Ier fondness for the stage will increase ti such a degree that she will finally leave co' lege and organize a company of her own They will make their first appearance in Vai Derveer's hall at Oaks Corners, presenting the well known play, 'fEast Lynnef, Miss Durand taking the part of Lady Isabel. Thi. venture will not be successful and aftei organizing several other companies and meet- ing with failures with all of them, she wil enter a dramatic school in Boston. There her talents for the stage will be recognized and after a careful course of study she will go to Berlin to complete her study for the stage She will make her first appearance as a star in London and will be greeted with the great- est applause. She will then tour Europe and America with a company of her own. In both of these countries she will be hailed as an actress who is destined to become noted throughout the world. Anxious to see whose future would next be revealed I unrolled another paper. This proved to be a sheet torn from a matrimonial paper, bearing the date of 1930.

Address Qvlarieslzouise Vosburgh Bussey, Phelps, N. Y." I paused here a long time wondering how -his could be so, butas I could reach no sat- sfactory conclusion I laid it aside and drew 'orth another. ' ' This bore the name of Gertrude Donley. lihe future of Miss Donley is very uncertain. Xs nearly as can be foreseen, however, she vill next year engage to teach' in a district ,chool. At the end of a few months she will esign her position to marry a young tele- jraph operator, formerly a popular 'newsboy if Phelps. She will then settle -down to Jedded life in a littgle village in Western New fork. 1 ' A Upon the fifth page was a picture which 'epresented the future of a classmate entirely lifferent from the rest. The picture was that Jf a lonely island in the Mid Pacific. The last rays of the setting sun were falling upon a group of savages gathered about a' young .nan, standing with an open Bible in his hands. In the face of this missionary who was giving his life to the noble work, I recognized Charles Benton. VVhen Ifremem- bered the saintly and dignified actions that had characterized his entire school life, I was not at all surprised by what this page revealed. I find that the class is to number an author among its members, for upon the next page was the picture of a book, handsomely bound, with its title and the author's name written upon it: 'fTeddy and If' a love story, by Frances Hariette Curry, Author of "The Art of Flirtationf' "Courtship Under Diffi- culties,', and other stories.
