Hon F. H. Wines gives the last lecture of the course next Tuesday night, March 10. Mr. Wines is the Secretary of the State Board of Charities. His lecture is upon the work of that institution in this State, and will be interesting to all. Representative Pollock says Mr. Wines is one of the best informed men he has met in the State.

The entertainment last week by Miss Hattie L. Brown, was almost more than was expected. It is perhaps safe to say that she gave as near perfect universal satisfaction as any individual or company that has ever been here. After giving Miss Brown fifty per cent, and paying her expenses here, the Sunday School cleared nearly nine dollars, which it invests in maps.

The Ladies Knitting Society enjoyed their monthly occasion at Mrs. G. L. Stewart's this week.

Grandma Stewart's children and grandchildren gathered about her last Saturday and gave her a most enjoyable visit, on the occasion of her seventy fourth birthday.

Mr. John Stewart and Mrs. Hockaday returned to Deerfield last Monday after a week's visit here.

The address by Mr. Wines, given under the auspices of our Lecture Committee, was the most interesting that has been given here this Winter, and should have drawn a larger audience than it did. Such addresses should be given in every town in the State, for the information of people.

Mrs. William Herr received the sad tidings last week of the death of her only brother, in Scotland. She was expecting to visit him the coming Summer.

On Friday afternoon of last week some of the ladies of Millburn, with picnic baskets under their arms, entered Mrs. Matthew's house, seized her carpet rags, and began to tear and tack. It was one of the most tearing, tacking times that has happened about here for a good while. The piety of the above deed might be questioned were it not for the good motive that prompted it. Mrs. Matthew's has been hindered by the accident to her husband, from doing this tedious piece of work, and the ladies kindly assisted her.

Mrs. Hoddell is still lying very low, and her decease seems near at hand.

Grandma Minto has been quite dangerously ill this Winter with heart disease.
