Well over one hundred Vermonters, resident in New York and vici nity, responded to, the invita tion of the Society on Saturday afternoon of last week for this enjoyable social meeting at the Hotel Plaza. Excellent music, abundant refreshments, cheer ful surroundings and the joy of Vermonters in meeting one an other encouraged the officers of the Society in the belief that a gathering of this sort should be given a place in the Vermont Society's calendar for eacfc year. Two direct reminders of Vermont marked the after noon ; first, a display of marvel lous "Mackintosh Red" apples from the Connecticut Valley Orchard Company of Westmin ster, and second, the circular announcement of the book re cently published by the Altru rian Club of Springfield. The Vermont Society of New York will welcome new mem bers among Vermont men and women who live in and about New York City and who wish to aid in cherishing Vermont sentiment there. The initiation fee and annual dues of the So ciety are not large. For appli cations for membership ad dress Joseph L. Barker, Secre tary, 154 Nassau Street, New York City.

"TEN NIGHTS" A WORLD FAMOUS DRAMA The producers of what is said to be one of the greatest motion pictures ever made se lected the town of Island Pond as the scene of its first local pre sentation to the public, and when "Ten Nights in a Bar room" is flashed on the screen of the Opera House Friday night, citizens of this town will have an opportunity of seeing one of the greatest of the fa mous old dramas in the history of the American stage trans ferred to the silver sheet. It is said to have. cost, a small fortune to produce and to have taken hundreds of people and used up miles of film, but those who have been fortunate enough to see it in the company projection room state that it is well worth all the trouble and expense. It is a story that thrilled theatregoers for the last fifty years and has been read by millions of people. The reason for its great success is at tributed to the wonderful hu man interest of the story. Sim pie in its theme but appealing to all, it has been (described as "The greatest heart interest drama the world, has ever known." Joe Morgan, Little Mary Morgan, Simon Slade and Harvey Green are characters that will live forever. In their recreation on the screen they are said to be even more power ful in their appeal than on the speaking stage. This picture will be shown at the Opera House on this week Friday. There, will also be shown Charlie Chaplin's latest comedy entitled "A Day's Plea sure" in three parts. Dance after show. Music ri'.'CTIKSJEdBLSS.'t all Chv iimas this week.

AN APPRECIATION To the Editor cf the Essex' County Herald, Dear Sir:- It came to me very much as a surprise, to learn through the medium of your paper of the death of Miss Annie Blake. She was one of those rare wo men whom it has been my pri vilege to meet in the ministry of the Christian Church. I can not therefore refrain from this word of appreciation of the sterling Christian character of this Godly woman rri -u- ; vviiu ju any wav tame,t into contact with her were en - nched by the inspiration of a' life that was the expression of. x viLtti yiiiiiaiiau tjApeiiencc. ; r ssHssn rT an nncnrnmnn in. , tvillgciivc 111 LX1C UCCJJCI umijis of religion, she was more than an appreciative listener, force fully thinking her way through to an intelligent understanding of the Faith. I am personally indebted to her for the demand made upon me as her former pastor by a mind such as she possessed for progressive and constructive thought. Perhaps it was this more than anything else, that led us to tear our selves away from what was proving to be a happy and suc cessful ministry in Island Pond to wander forth with sorrowful hearts in search of a greater preparation for the task to which we are called. The relatives and friends have suffered a distinct loss. Where ever she cast her lot in life it was to contribute sweet ness, purity ad true Christian nobleness and fortunate are those whose privilege it was to grow to maturity in intimate contact with a life so rich in E ternal values. I count it as one of the great est privileges, of my life, to have ministered to her in reli gious things. Signed, FRED WILCOCK.
