building to North Main street. The

alt the front of the Hale auction market
on North Main street, where the lunch
business will cater to the public during
the construction of a new building on
the old lunch room site. Immediately
after the building is placed on rollers
and moved from the present site a force
of workmen will begin the construction
of a new building that will meet the
demands of the lunch business. The new
building will be a much larger affair than
the old structure. The old eatinghouse
will be razed within 30 days after the
placing on the North Main street lot,
according to the decree of the city fa
thers. William Duff, the well known artist
and decorator, has completed two at
tractive paintings of the Garble farms
at Turriff, Aberd eenshire, Scotland. The
pictures are exhibited in the window at
Hooker & Co.'s store. Each canvas re
veals a fine regard for detail and reflects
the artist's fidelity to the picture which
the mind's eye of an Aberdonian paints
as he recalls the familiar scenes of other
days. The colorings are remarkably well
done and people who are acquainted with
Scottish rural scenes are enthusiastic
in pronouncing the pictures excellent.
Two views of the Garble farms at Tur
riff are reproduced by the artist's brush.
Both are enclosed in harmonious frames
and many people have stopped already
to admire them. The paintings are to
be sent to James B. Grant of Wells Riv
er, a former Barre man, who spent his
boyhood at Garble farms. The work was
done in Mr. Duff's studio in the Aldrich

was carried out, consisting of solos bv
Mrs. D. H. Cutler and Miss Inglis and

in the evening, a $10 gold piece was
presented Mrs. F. G. Rogers, as a slight
testimonial from the ladies present in
consideration of the 10 years of faithful
service which she has just completed
as teacher of the class. This came as a
complete surprise to Mrs. Rogers, but
she was equal to the occasion and feel
ingly responded. Refreshments of ice
cream and cake were then served and
after a social half hour, the company
dispersed with the thought that the
honds of friendship between teacher and
class had been strengthened by one more
pleasant evening.
