Originally printed in the Colby Phonograph, June 24, 1886

The high school closed last Friday, and on Saturday, Prof. Sims treated his scholars, their parents and several other teachers to a picnic on the banks of the raging Eau Pleine (although it does not rage much at this time) which was hugely enjoyed by all participants until just before time to return home, when Miss Georgine Englehard had the misfortune to badly sprain her right ankle.

She was brought home in advance of the balance of the picnickers, by Prof. Sims, and at this writing is unable to use the injured member.

With the exception of this one accident and one custard pie that disappeared, as the ladies avow, through the instrumentally (that’s what they call it now) of Prof. Sims, the picnic was a grand success.
