My Dear Mr. Haupt: My attention has been called to à copy of the Newark Post in which there is an account of the St. Thomas Guild entertainment held in your Parish House, March 3rd. I also heard spmedndependent expressions about the good use you are making of the Parish House as i ers a social centre for the community, and I hope you won't think I am she intruding in sending a work of ! congratulation. try I have always felt that the church, should be an active factor in m maintaining community good an d in small places like New-'though M k ' nk such agencies as you j have inaugurated are very much needed and are calculated to do a great deal of good. I congratulate you on having the , fund for the church bell already raised. An object like this in con-, nection with Guild work gives : added zest to the pleasures they, 0 enjoy. I notice that you allowed ing at your recent entertainment. T'vas interested in that because we bave done the same both here and ; at Old Swedes, in a limited way ! „ and under careful restrictions,— and I think it has had at both places a distinctly good effect. The j more the Church shows sympathy "'th the young in their innocent, CU J pastimes, the more likely we are ; b n d 4hem seeking the Church's : ministrations in regard to higher things. | With all good wishes believe me Sincerely yours a ed ; Frederick M.

Not to belong is to lack standing a mong the youngsters. One small lg' r l wbo wished to be among the e i ect saw the coveted membership escaping her when the club leader told her there were no more set tings of ben's eggs procurable in that locality. Undiscouraged, the would-be member scoured the neighborhood, and later came back with four turkey eggs, all the em bryo poultry material she could locate. She was admitted to the club. Her difficulties had only begun. In the excitement of locating the eggs she had forgotten until she reached home that the sole îti cubator which she could use was its the nor ergency. By fluffing up her feath i ers well she managed to cover the turkey eggs, and so faithfully did she do her duty that all four eggs ! hatched, to the delight of the poul try club member and herself. The four turks were brought up in quite proper turkey fashion by their foster mother and owner, al New-'though the amount of feed they j managed to consume kept the pro yiders busy. Later in the summer one of the four met with an un timely end, and "so there wrnre , three . 99 These three big, bronze beauties with their tiny .foster another, to whom they were ap : parently much attached, were one 0 f the popular exhibits at the county fair this fall. danc-_ BAGGAGE POOLERS ; ! „ , ^ , , , J k' • Cologne Gatnedral and txais er's Bathtub Now Safe The plan of the sergeant who intended to have the Army of Oc CU p a ti 0n pool its baggage allow ance and ship one of the German cas tles back to Hoboken has been frustrated.
