Naturally, she se- cured leave of absence and accepted the invitation. On Monday she sailed for the mainland to join her parents and a cousin for the trip. Previously her teacher friends gave her a series of farewell parties. As she was about to step upon the gangplank of the S. S. Catalina a .courtly gentleman pre- sented the young lady with what ap- peared to be an elegant basket of flow- ers. A peek at the contents of the bffsketl however, revealed that some one was playing a joke upon the young lady, or--was afraid that she might become hungry on her journey--for it was filled with fresh vegetables of various colors. However, Miss Hutch- kiss knows how to take a joke, and we believe she will appreciate it. All her friends unite in wishing her a pleasant journey and a safe return.
