most successful picnics thal have ever
taken place ill this vicinity was that of
the Baptist Sunday School on Wednesday

outdoor [pastimes, and the spot selected
for the picnic-the Fishtrap-was refresh

was, besides the children, a large atten
dance of ladies and gentlemen, who were
apparently as much delighted with (be
sports as their juniors. The exercises
were opened willi prayer and the singing
ufa hymn hy the children so sweet thal
the hirds held their peace to listen. Then
followed a programme, most judiciously
varied, comprising addresses, hymus, re
lions, egg-hunting, crowning thc
