memory of her multitude of past lovers, as she remained an old maid until her death at the age of ninety-seven.” ‘‘Yes, that’s right, I thought you knew it all along.” “Now who will volunteer to tell me of the noted inventor or the ‘later Edison.’ A small hand arose hesitatingly in the rear of the room. “Well, Marshall, you must like to tell about people for whom you were named.” “Yes’m. His most noted invention was a pair of bow-leg- ged crutches for knock-kneed men.” “Well, that’s not all by a long ways, but I suppose that will do.” “Now, who wants to tell me about the modern Helen ofTroy and Cleopatra? All right, Thracine.” “Oh, they were the most beautiful ladies of their time. They vamped everything going and coming. Many hearts were broken and many wars fought between the different planets on their account. They were Sena Thompson and Anna Allison.” Hitherto I had remained unnoticed, but suddenly the teacher turned to me and asked — “Can you tell me about Robert Bunts, young man?” It was then that I awoke.

“We have a very interesting group for our consideration today —the Pulaski group. This group, with a few exceptions, started their wonderful careers at P. H. S. A notable fact indeed, as it was one of the best schools of its day, being classed along with Dublin Institute, Wurno Academy, and other noted seats of learning.” Two of the most noted were Minnie Cannaday and Mamie Russell, noted musicians of their time. They traveled together making many tours of the world and Mars, winning fame every- where. Others of special note were the nurses Lillian Pack, Dorothy Jameson, and Minnie Peirce.

But the most noteworthy service to humanity during her career was teaching Henry Foglesong how to be a good husband. “That’s good — now, Mary, tell me about the actor of this group.” “Oh, that was Beveridge Roberts. She became famous as a female Charlie Chaplin and Rodolph Valentino combined. She entered the New York Tribune ' s funny pictures, making a name for herself at the early age of ninety-eight.” “Good, now, Katherine — the lawyers.” “Were they Gerard Southern and Ernest Lewey?” “Yes. But I am asking you.” “Well, they practiced law for a while at Macadam and were then elected to the town council on ‘No work — all play’ plat- form. Their greatest bill was the ‘Curly-Spain Bill.’ “Correct. Now, Harold, tell me about Alice Lowman.” “I don’t think I know that.” “Stay in for an hour this afternoon.” “Oh, yes, she was the teacher of expression at the Stuart School for girls established by Aline Stuart in New York in 31
