The ladies' society of the Unitarian church gave a most pleasant sociable at the parsonage last Wednesday evening. In spite of the rain a large and happy company assembled. The occasion had been secretly planned to come on the birthday of the minister, Rev. George W. Solley. After supper a large oil paining in gilt frame of the old brick parish church on meeting house hill, which is the work of Artist George Spencer Fuller, was presented to Mr. Solley. A graceful presentation speech was made by Rev. H. E. Morrow of the Congregational church which was responded to by Mr. Solley. The sociable was also a particularly enjoyable one because of the presence of visitors and friends.

The Saturday club has voted itself a vacation and will assemble at the call of the officers.
