given the iodine tablets weekly until
they reach adolescence.
This instructive talk by Dr. Else

W O M E N ’ S BIBLE CLASS
One o f the finest social gatherings
o f the season was the occasion of
the class party o f the Women’s Bible
Class of the Federated churches, held
on Monday evening o f this week, at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. B.
Harris. It will not possible fo r all
the members o f this large class to
be present: but the class was well
represented, and there were a few
other women o f the Sunday school
present. Twelve gentlemen also w%re
present. The large house was well
filled. The evening was spent in
games, social converse and music.
The old sajing that older people are
only grown up children was well
demonstrated. Mr. and Mrs. Harris
are splendid hosts. They made us
hope we may go out there again.
The “ eats” committee had found an
abundance o f the very best things.
These were also well received. Quite
a little zest was added to the occasion
when it was found that the day was 1
the thirty-sixth anniversary o f the [
graduation o f Mr. Harris from high
school, and was also the ninth anni
versary o f the wedding o f Mr. and ;
Mrs. Harris. We were really cele
brating. The affair was under the
direction o f the “ Look-out” commit
tee o f the Bible class. Mrs. Hub
bard and her helpers served well.
