little into the an the constructed have is are by the PARISH HOUSE OPENING. Christ Church and its friends Enjoy a Very Pleasant Evening Thereat By invitation of the " Rector, Wardens and Vestrymen," friends and members of Christ Church gathered at the now parish house last evening by way of an old fashioned " house wanning." A program had been arranged for the occasion which was entitled Cubans Orange both all the as rascal. not. missing go the bed head foray the the Chenan any ver anc anc! he faithfullj carried ont, and gre tly en- joycd by the gathered guests. The house is a structure very fre- quonly discussed by many in the past who were anxious to see the interior. The front is not a strikingly beautiful specimen of architecture, suggesting as it does very forcibly, the front ele vation of an oil country product as f=ecn from the Allegany division car windows, but a glimpse of the interior dispels all such suggestions, and one is ushered into beautiful, spaci ouc rooms, done off in varnished woods, and glowing with the rich splendors of electricity that gives an air of cleanliness and comfort to all sections. Below is a spacious auditorium with a raised platform or stage in front, making an ideal place for entertainments and literary and elocutionary well for all eventsthat such a room is needed for by progressive societies of the church with movable will al low for speedy divisions into smaller rooms,or all can be opened up into one great and delightful room, as was the case last night. Above all was made into one great beautiful room, well ighted by numor ous windows and glowing electric jets, with many cosy, cheerful corners, making ideal lounging and " talking places." The front was especially used for this purpose last evening, while in the rear divisions beautifully decorated tables wcr; spread at which ladies presided, and the younger element waited upon the company later, after the program below was ended. It was a charming vista of comfort and elegance. In the rear is a well appointed kitchen with range nd all sorts of cooking com'cniences which will enable the faithful and hard working ladies of the church to get up their church suppers without inconvenience, and in the most appetizing manner. *We are especially glad on their account that they have such a charming and convenient place for their needs. They deserve it. The program opened with religious ceremonies and an address by the Rector, when Miss Grace Ilardengerg rendered her selection on the new piano which has been provided for he place, and forms part of the needed furniture. Her performance was a brilliant one, showing the results of her years of patient training, and was recen ed with applause by the audience. Mrs. O'Connor's paper on " The ICarly Hisaory of the Parish," was \ r ery intcresting.and will be \ a l u a b l e for future reference, dealing as it did with people and events of many years igo. and giving a succint account not July cf the foundation of the church nere, but of the privations and the unselfishness of the early pioneers in religious work in this mission, PP ;t was then. It showed a good deal jf hard work and research, and, inci dentally patience. The paper was written, and gave generous nraise to all deserving it in past 01 present, and was well received. Mr Don Sharp made shoit work ol his " Reminiscnces," confining them oarticularly to reading the list of contributors to the fund, on the ground .hat some day some body would be ·eading this list as .Mrs. O'Conno: read the list of long ago. Miss Raw son read a well prepared paper on " The Guild," giving a his .ory of that hard working young la organization, which was formed '0 vears ago and has done so much to lid the prosperity of the church. It was organized by Dr. Windsor, and Miss Jane Hart was the first Presi- lent, and Miss Rawson gavj an out '.ine of the results of its labors. Mrs. Greenhow gave a history of he Unity Society and its work, and ihe results thereof, which was well practical paper 1 , and deal with its sub- ectject in a. practical, and not a merely sentimental manner, and was very highly spoken of. Mr. Gilpin closed the regular program by telling all about the building of the house, who did it and how did it, and, as everybody who knows Mr. Gilpin knows that everybody does anything under his charge does it in the very best way, because like to work under his direction, also because they know that even if they were inclined to do different! they would not be allowed to, he ha a good report to make, and gave erous credit to all who had charge the different lines, and he was es pecially cordial in recognition of the taithfulness and efficiency of the con tractor, Mr. John Feehan, who, h said, allow ed the committee to ahange the plans in any way, anc was nxious to do tho work just as was wanted, and who, himself sug gested changes for the better al ..hough it might add to his work. Dr. Deems was then called upon he Rector, and cordially congratulated the people of the parish upon owning such a convenient and attrac- ive house. Such improvements, he said, were inspirations to all socie ies, to the Presbyterians, and Metho- lists and all others, and he was glad o see it. The Rector then said that as this ·A as '" the house that Jack built'" as Jack was in the house he asked Mr. Feehan to say something, which he did in a witty and appropriate manner, saying he only tried to carry out his contract as best he could, was glad to know that it w r as so satis factory. After this all went up stairs to visit and partake of the refreshments the ladies had so generously provided, while music was furnished by Mr. Edmund Nicholson's orchestra.
