direction is of the highest order and her
selection was greatly ap preciated.
The bovs of the brigade furnished
perhaps the most pleasing datum of the
program by a drill. The perfect maimer
in which they performed the various
evolutions was a p'casing surprise to
nearly every one present and the boys
covered themselves with glory. Ralph
Berry advanced his alieady well
established reputation as a baton t wirier
of ability, his performance in this line
being decidedly brilliant. Elmer Werlz
officiated as bugler in an admirable
After the program refreshments were
served, then the comp iny entertained
themselves w ith games ami other social
amusements until the hour arrived lor
Tbe object of the social was to ad
vance the interests of the Boys' Brigade,
aud it li awakened a more general
interest in that organization, and a
better appreciation of its possibility of
gXd results, both present and future.
The boys receive an appreciable benefit
from the drills and the qualifications
for membership are such as to place the
qualities of good citizenship at a pre
mium in the minds of the boys.
