  There's a little Browe schoolhouse
  Standing on a lonely hill
  Where we've passed many happy hours away
  And often in my memory I'm roaming around it still
  Though our heads long ago have turned to Grey.

    Oh the happy childhood days,
    You are in the far, far away,
    And you'll never come back to us any more.
    But we'll gather at the schoolhouse
    On the glad Reunion Day
    With the friends that we used to know of your.

  Tho some have climbed mountain
  On the way to wealth and fame
  And others still are struggling on the way,
  Our hearts, in love united, will ever be the same
  As when we sang our 'Darling Nellie Gray'.
The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President - C. T. Heydecker of Waukegan, Ill., Vice President - Frank L. Wells. of Kenosha; Executive Committee - F. q. Dietmeyer, Emma Heydecker, Edgar Ames.
