Throughout the evening the High School Orchestra filled in the gaps with mosic that wonld have been creditable for professionals. The audience that assembled at Academy Hall, Wednesday evening, December 18tb, was the largest and most appreciative that has been present at any entertainment given under the management of the High School lecture oourse for many years. The unusual number in attendance and the hearty applause that was given to each number in the program was proof tbat the substitution of a school entertainment for a lecture met with popular approval. The first part of the program was given over to the pupils of the grades and they fulfilled tbeir parts in a mauutr that reflected great credit upon the teachers who drilled them as well as upon themselves. The entertainment given by these pupils was entitled "Ghristmastide—Au Operetta." Miss Bernice Jones, the musioal director, was at the piano throughout the operetta and its success was largely due to her skill and patience. PITTS' NEW YEAR SALE PHONE NO. 80.

The first of these was the "Mistletoe and Holly." The leading part was ''Winter1' and was delightfully presented by Miss Clarice Falvay whose costume was very beautiful and typieal of the glitter of ice and snow. Paul Jones was the "North Wind" and a good one too. His voice is far more than ordinary in sweetness and strength.

The next in the series of tntersoholastic debates will take place at Westfield, on Friday, February 28th, when the home team, ehampions of the league, will debate Erie, Westfield's old time rival. This is the first time Westfield has debated Erie in four years, but the boys have not forgotten their defeat at that time and a fight to the finish is expected. The debate may determine the championship, as there are but six teams in the league this year. On the 13th of this month Westfield defeated Jamestown by a uoanious decision, while Erie won from Olean by a verdict of two out of three. The Westfield team has not yet been chosen, but the boys are working on their trial debates during the vacation. The team will be composed, in part at least, of new men, as Thompson and Belden, do not intend to try for the team. Hart and Buttery have each been in one interscholastio debate, and will probably make two of the three who will debate Erie. On the same date, Jamestown will debate at Niagara Falls aud Lockport will debate at Olean. Calendars tor the New Year with local scenes, 10c and 15c each. New Year postal cards 2 for 5c.

The drill for this chorus fell to Miss Douglas and the results were most creditable. Effective staging and costuming were essential in order that thought and spirit of the chorua might be properly portrayed. This work was well done by the teachers of the Union School, the Misses Phear, Jones, Morgenstern and Marshall. The hearty manner in which parents co operated with the teachers and the splendid liberality with which they Rpent time and money in providing new and beautiful costumes for their children were greatly appreciated. This spirit of helpfulness greatly lessened the difficulties of preparation. f The second chotus was as follows: SNOW FLAKE FAIRIBS. Did you get a copy of Button's Inn for Christmas ?

The contest wub began by Miss Flora Hall who recited "Mother and Poet" with sympathetic appreciation of its tragic pathos. Her rendition was fine. Then came Miss Nyda Keith in "The Shepherds of Jadea" so well given that this recitation gained the prize for the girls. Miss Alioe Willing followed with "A Legend of Bregarz." One judge was so impressed that he gave the first place to Miss Willing. The bo>s contest was opened by Granger Riagbauer withjan extract from Wendell Phillips' famons oration on Toassaint L' Ouverture. It was well done. Breakwater Work Stops. Court House Work. Repairs on the breakwater and beacons pier by the government has been discontinned for the winter and Superviser Fore* man Stephen Skinner and his men have begun the work of shipping tools and equipment to district headquarters at Buffalo.

It is intended that the partition brick walls will be completed. The outside walls will be protected with a covering of boards and heavy paper. During the early winter all kinds of material —stone, iron, fire proofing—will be shipped and brought to Mayville. Director F. E.

Ladies and young people are especially invited to take part in tne question box discussion at the opening of each session. Fredonia Masons. Fred Richardson told the pathetio story of "The Fall of Pemberton Mill" with so much earnestness that the audience listened with intense interest. "The Relief of Luoknow," by Ben Boult, was also pathetio in character and dramatic in denoument. It called for great flexibility of voice, ranging from a whisper to passionate appeal. The speaker was equal to the demands. William Weloh was the winner of the Shipments Commenced. At the regular election of Forest Lodge, F. & A. M., of Fredonia, Worshipful Master William J. Prish was re-elected for a third term. Other elective officers num. ed were: Senior warden, M. Glen Huntler; junior warden, George Banana; secretary, James M. Pettit; treasurer, Harry 'G. Dnnkley.
