      Miss Nellie Merritt, principal of the Lowell school, was the delighted recipient of a pleasant surprise on Wednesday afternoon after the close of school. The teachers who are employed in the building have greatly appreciated Miss Merritt's unvarying courtesy and kindness to them, and to give expression to their feelings they arranged a surprise for her. She was called from the room for a few moments and while absent a table was spread and ladened with toothsome delicacies and ornamented with masses of beautiful cut flowers. Miss Merritt was then called in and luncheon was served with Miss Merritt as the guest of honor. She was greatly pleased at this expression of their regard and esteem.
