  On Wednesday evening the Academic Department gave its regular monthly entertainment.  For the first one in the year, it was a good one.  The decorations of the platform in autumn leaves displayed genius on the part of the stage committee, for bringing artistic effect from very inexpensive material.  The numbers on program deserving of special mention in our limited space are the piano solo--"Polka Cosetts," played by Ida Swallow in charming touch; "The Treasure of the Golden Corn," by the little pupils of Miss Barclay's room; "Rip Van Winkle's Return," Miss Weekley's pupils; Juanita Bibanco's recitation on "September"; Emma Johnson's recitation, "Don't Crowd"; the Tableau, "Autumn;" John Morris' recitation, "Out to Old Aunt Mary's"; Sidney Burr's forcible declamation on "Concentration and Will Power," and David McFarland's earnest effort on "Through Intellect to Instinct."  While most of the speakers uttered their words too rapidly, David spoke deliberately, and distinctly, giving his audience a chance to hear what he had to say, notwithstanding his difficulty in pronouncing some of the English sounds correctly.  The great secret of good speaking is SLOWNESS and distinctness.  Watch Mr. Wile, when he gives out a hymn on Sunday!  We always hear him.  What would be the use of his giving it out if we did not?


   The new officers for the Susan Longstreth Literary Society for the second term are: President, Cynthia Webster; Vice-President, Dabney George; Recording Secretary, Martha Sickles; Treasurer, Cora Cornelius; Marshall, Ollie Choteau; Reporter, Minnie Finley; Critic, Pasquala Anderson; Assistant Critic, Sara Smith; Pianist, Ida Swallow.

   Music and song are woven in these programs where seemingly most needed for best effect.  Mabel Buck and Ida Swallow played "Sakontalas" - Bendel's beautiful Valse Brillante in a manner that showed skill.

  At the Saturday evening meeting last week there were present the visiting chiefs, whose names are given elsewhere.  Ida Swallow was called upon to play a piano solo for them, and her selection and skilful rendition pleased them greatly as was evidenced by the way they watched her fingers fly over the keys.  It was plain to be seen that the chiefs were proud that one of their race could produce sounds so charming....

  Ida Swallow who does the piano playing for the daily gymnastic drills deserves high credit for her remarkable patience and most excellent time.  No one knows what a strain it is to occupy the place of player when a mistake in time would throw hundreds out in their maneuvering of wand, dumbbell or Indian club.  The drill is very beautiful to look upon, and Mr. Thomspon does it all with no show of bluster.  The exercise is enjoyed by all who take part, and their health is correspondingly excellent.

  Miss Gertrude Simmons widely known by her Dakota name - Zitkala Sa, is with us, and will remain until the Band starts on its tour, when she will go along as violin soloist.  She is looking well and says that the people of Boston have treated her well.
  In the program of last Friday evening at the Susans, Ida Swallow gave a piano solo with her usual delicacy of style and Ada Smith shows marked improvement in execution.  Maud Snyder's vocal selection pleased all.  Margaret Scholder in "Behind the Scenes" was good as the unsmiling, severe type of "school ma'am" while Ida Griffin, Jennie DeRosier, Alice Powlas and Nora Denney also did well in the dialogue.  Lilly St. Cyr, Juliet Smith, Amelia Metoxen and Louisa Rogers appeared in appropriate costumes as "The Seasons" and showed careful study of their quotations.

  The school has been entertained times without number by superb Band concerts.  The Orchestra has given several performances and the Mandolin Club has dispersed music to cheer and entertain, but to Mrs. Sawyer's class do we owe an evening devoted principally to pinao playing.
  It was a Musicale in every sense of the word.  About two hundred neatly printed invitations were sent to as many music loving people, who gathered in the Girls' Society room, last Thursday night.
  Programs, giving the names of composers and performers were handed to the guests as they took their seats.  Two elegant pianos, one Mrs. Sawyer's own and the other secured from the music store in town, were used and were in perfect tune.  Eight hands on the two pianos produced thrilling results much enjoyed by all. The performers were Ida Swallow, Dolly Johnson, Bertha Pierce, Fannie Harris, Rose Poodre, Lillie Ferris, Lillian Brown, Grace Warren, Pearl Hartley, Nora Denny, Ada Smith, Ida Wheelock, Frank Mt. Pleasant, Nora Jamison, Alice Powlas, Alberta Gansworth, Pliga Nash, Celinda King, Eudocia Sedick, and they rendered music from Bendel, Streabbog, Kramer, Von Kornatzki, Lysbert, Leschetizky, Wilson G. Smith, Sodermann, Heller and Lavignac.
  Misses Senseney, and Stewart, and Mrs. Cook assisted, by way of beautifully rendered vocal selections, and the evening closed by the audience singing America.  The young ladies were dressed prettily, the room was decorated with the portraits of prominent composers, and the entire affair one long to be remembered, Mrs. Sawyer has reason to be proud of the results of her students.
