were very successful in every par
ticular. In some rfspects it was
rather an unique aflair. The ladies
had prepared and procured a large
number of handkerchiefs, dust caps
of all sorts and sizes and colors,
aprons of the most improved and
unimproved patterns, cushions and
cushion covers of beautiful designs,
quills, etc. These were offered for
sale at very reduced rates. The
hall was neatly and con venieot'y
decorated and arranged for the oc
casion and everything contributed
to make it a pleasant social event.
In the evening an interesting pro
gram was presented, consisting of
music, an illustrated lecture, for
tune 'telling, refreshments, etc.
Despite the severe storm there were
many present, and the receipts
large and satisfactory.'
The lecture by Prof. French of
the State Normal school, deserves
npcciul mention. It was scholarly
and very interesting. The views
he presented of what ho had seen
in bis Kuropean travels were ex
ceedingly clear and beautiful and
were prepared by Mr." Lewis, of
Monmouth. The musical .iniin ber
presented by Mrs. Babbitt and
Miss liowden was great'y enjoyed
