City Man’s Oraam at the Country.
By 8. W. Foss .
I would flee from the city’s rule and
From its fashion and form cut loose.
And go where the strawberry grows
on Its straw,
f And the gooseberry grows on its
Where the catnip tree is climbed
by the cat
As she crouches for her prey—
The guileless and unsuspecting rat
On the rattan bush at play.
I will watch at ease the safron cow;
And her cowlet in their glee.
As they leap in Joy from bough to
On the top of the cowslip tree;
Where the musical partridge drums
on his drum.
And the woodchuck chucks bis
And the dog devours the dogwood
In the primitive solitude.

Miss Bennett fully appreciates this
token of loving welcome from those
she tried to help as a teacher and
Oh let me drink from the mossgrown
That was hewn from the pumpkin
Eat mush and milk from a rural
From form and fashion free.
New gathered mush from the mush-
And milk from the milkweed sweet.
With luscious pineapple from the pine,
Such food as the gods might eat!
And theg to the whitewashed dairy
Where the dairy maid hastening
Her ruddy and golden red butter to
From the milk of her butterflies!
And I’ll rise at the morn with the

Tuesday the ladles of the W. C. T. U.
planned a pleasant surprise for Mrs.
Laaley, in the shape of an exquisite
handbag, with all the dainty articles
for traveling. This was only a very
slight token of the love, respect and
appreciation of her untiring labor In
this great cause.
Mrs. Lesley was much loved in Or-
ange and many will regret her leaving
and look forward with a hope of her
return at some future time.
We who have known her so well
and been closely associated with her
In various ways, know she will be
Just as busy trying to be a blessing
to those around her in her new home
as she was In Orange.

A moat pleasant and successful sur-

Mrs. T. J. Davis on the evening of
September 22nd, when quite a num-
ber of their descendants gathered at
their home on Front street. At this
very enjoyable affair quite an unusual
thing happened, four generations were
present to help in the celebration of
Captain Davis' seventy-fourth birth-
During the evening vocal and Instru-
mental music was much enjoyed, old
fashioned games were played by the

being thoroughly enjoyed by the Cap-

On Wednesday at noon. Mias Lucia
Sellers was delightfully surprised with
• fruit shower. This is Miss Sellers
first term as s teacher in Orange and
this charming courtesy extended her
by her new pupils was much appre-
All sorts of lovely fruit was brought
and temptingly arranged on her desk.
This was a very sweet way for the
pupils in her room to show their ap-
preciation of her and shows also that
she baa won their hearts.
When teacher and pupile become
friends at once It bespeaks a pleasant
and profitable year for both.
Complimentary to Teacher—
A very sweet tribute was paid to
Miss Viola Bonnet's faithfulness as a
teacher last year. On Wednesday sev-
eral of her last year pupils and of the
pretest class planned a surprise for
her. On oeaning to her room Wenet
A most beautiful and impressive
service was that of the installation
of the officers of the Junior and Sen-
ior Leagues, Sunday night at the
Methodist church. The dainty League
colors of white and gold were taste-
fully carried out In the pretty decora-
tions of cut flowers and ferns. Im-
mense clusters of gtfid and whJte
chrysanthemums and ferns and white
snowdrops were arranged artistically
on the table and pulpit.
After an opening song and prayer
Mr. Oxley made a very helpful and
interesting talk on "Why Am I a
Leaguer?" At the close of hla ad-
dress the officers were called upon to
take their places at the altar. It
was quite a pretty sight when a Senior
and Junior officer together took their
places, thus linking the Juniors Into
the Senior chain, which will give them
strength and courage, and increasing
the responsibility and love of the Sen-
iors for the little links, frail now, but
who shall one day take their respon-
sibilities. After each officer had taken
the oath of office, Misses Helen Ford
and Constance Oxley pinned a beauti-
ful badge of office on each. These were
of dainty white ribbon over gold and
the name of office hand painted on
each. The badges were made by Mr*.
Will Smith'and her little son Willard.
During the enthusiastic singing of
a song the Leaguera and friends came
and gave the officers a hearty hand-
shake. The entire service was one
of beauty and Impressiveness.
The service wae closed by the

WITH THE CLUBS
The greatest need of a growing city
like Orange is level-headed men and
women who are willing to sacrifice
selfish Interests for the public good.
The problem that confronts ua to-
day is the awakening of civic inter-
eat and the responsibility that rests
upon every individual as a citizen to
do bis best for cleanliness, beauty and
A city holds all kinds of interests
and all kinds of people. The uplifting
of the masses comes first from tak-
ing In what the eyes see. The child
is made from Infancy a part of its In-
viron. To create high Ideals, the love
of the beautiful, the pure and the true
muat be his daily education through
More parks, more playgrounds, more
free music, modern improvements,
modern methods In public life, as well
as In private homes, is the crying need
of the community as it grows from
year to year toward* a great city.
Sanitary supervision over school
buildings, halls, churches, theaters,
street cars, pure food regulation#, es-
pecially milk, the lifting up of the
Individual as a unit is requisite to the
well-being of a municipality and to
the healthy development of our city
and its people.
Miss Mabie Shingle was elected presi-
dent and Mias Mattie Baker secre-
tary and treasurer. The following
young ladies compose the dub at
present: Misses Sallie Foreman. Bell
Pevoto, Margaret Davidson, Enla Ort-
meyer, Helen Achenbach, Mantle Stew-
art, Mabie Shingle, Mattie Baker, and
Leola Edwards; Mesdamea Sidney
Collins, Archie Slmma. and Walace
Many people stumble through the
world gazing about them. A beautiful
horizon is only the sky to them; a
towering mountain is just s pile of
rocks; the sea has no meanings in
whisperings. Such people may go
from country to country, seeing people
and nations in a visible sense. Even
the mighty roar of Niagara is merely
the noise of water dashing over a
cliff in a confused mass. It does not
appeal to the sublime sense of their
minds. Fact remains fact.

With Our Teachers.—
Thin is the second week of school
and everybody is settling down to
hard work. We have an excellent
corps of teachers in our schools this
year. Some we know are charming
and helpful because of our pleasant
relations with them last year, and
the new teachers come to us highly
recommended and already we are feel-
ing their iterest and Influence in Or-
ange. Some very nice courtesies have
been shown the various teachers and
more are sure to follow as the season
advances and the weather settles.

the "stranger” period of aa short dura-
tion as possible and help our teachers

The Circle prayers »ert blessed >n

thee." "Feed my sheep." What Is

Nervll Prejean told the society how
to supply more teachers for the Run
day school. This Is a problem that
confronts ail Sunday school superin-
tendents. The speaker's solution was
along this line: Use the Endeavor
Society as a training school for chnrcb
workers. Every Senior Endeavorer
should be a regular or substitute
teacher in the Sunday school They
should exhibit a more vital interest
In these little boys and gtrls; the En
deavoreis of tomorrow.
Aa the summer passes, with It goes
many of our means for social gather-
ings. The pleasant boat saila, lawn
parties and tallabo ride* all have to
be done away with aa the winter ad-
vances. This leaves oar social world
ft little dull until we get adjusted.
A few of the young ladies realising
this fact have met together and form-
ed a "500” Club. This elub will meat
each Saturday afternoon at t:2ft
o’clock and spend • few hours playlag
the very Interesting game of "900."

ing will also he found In this column.

body participated in the open perita-
meat on the Sunday school question
and many ways to Interest the little
ones were revealed. The president
told how we may commend our society
by suppiyisg church workers:
"Church work la world-wide. There
