BAPTIST S. S. PICNIC-One of thc
most, successful picnics that have ever
taken place in this vicinity was that of
the Baptist Sunday School ou Wednesday
last. The day was a channing one for
outdoor (pastimes, and the spot selected
for the picnic-the Fishtrap-was refresh
ingly green, shady and inviting. There
was, besides thc children, a large atten
dance of ladies and gentlemen, who were
apparently ns much delighted with the
sports ns their juniors. The exercises
were opened with prayer and the singing
of a hymn b}'thc children so sweet that
the birds held their peaee to listen. Then
followed a programme, most judiciously
varied, comprising addresses, hymns, re
citations, egg-hunting, crowning the
queen (Mhss p. Whitmore) and proclaim
ing thecoy?l captain ("Master Henry Liv
ingston), m oslo by thc band, running and
Mig mutches, archery," sack race?,
poll i'll?. Ling, base ball.'around the May
pole ani' several other iimusements.'all
of which followed each other in snell
1 welforde. ed succession as to keep up an
I unflagging interest throughout Hie entire
day. A bountiful collation was served
?diorUif ,'ifriT noon, to which full justice
was mme. hy young and old.
