STANTON:  (Special Correspondence)
There was a school entertainment held in the school house in district No. 3 on Friday evening consisting of dialogues, recitations and music by the pupils.  They all played their part well, showing the skill and patience displayed by their teacher, Miss Alice Tovey, in instructing them.  The house was filled to its utmost capacity.  The best of order prevailed.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and all wished that another such entertainment would follow before long.
