A farewell reception was tendered
Rev. "tid Mrs. V. K. Davenport at the
nodding Methodist eliureh last evening,
where a largo number of the church
members and others had gathered to
entertain their pastor for the' last time.
The room was beautifully trimmed
and decorated. In the center nnd the
comers of the room tables were draped
with the American flag and on
the tables were potted plants. Rev,
and Mrs. Davenport stood in the
front part of the room where they re
ceived their friends. Anonjr the local
clergymen who were present were Rev.
J. K. Sherburne, Rev. II. V. 11. Staf
ford, Rev. Thomas Mitchell, Rev. M.
V. Fuller and Rev. Ellle K. M.Jones.
After a short reception, all adjourned
to the auditorium where a inusieI pro
gram was rendered, lie f ore the enter
tainment, Mr. Davenport made a few
remarks. He spoke briefly about the
people of Barre. Ho regarded them
as a stirring and ambitious set of people,
lie was proud of tliein and the city.
The members of the church the speaker
saiil had always worked in harmony

"The EvuxiMi ExTKUPMSfc" is not
yet a week old, yet during the first three
j'KKl'lsisn" lias issued three extras giving
full account of the ashington proceed
ings, last night the paper and sold like
hot cakes. This is an indication of the
manner in which the people of the city
are indorsing of the efforts of this paper
to give the latest news fron the seat of
government. If hustle and diligent ef
forts win we propose to be anion"; the
newspapers of Vermont at the end of
the year. The Associated Press Service
was able to furnish ijs with a report of
the "riot in Congress' last night which
enabled us to issue the extra which sold
at a rapid rate. One of the most im
portant occurrences of the present debate
over the matter, yet the Evexixc. Ex
tekphisk" was the only Bane paper
having a line on he event which the
people, judging by the way they bought
t'-e extra were anxious to read. If you
want the latest news buy Hie paper
which is connected with the clliciciit
Associated Press and not use the "lmli
tin board service".
