It is suggested that all assemble between 10 and 11 o'clock at the lake.

The annual picnic of the Congregation al Sunday school at Lakeside, Taunton, on Tuesday afternoon, will go down la history as the most- enjoyable and suc cessful gathering of the kind this school has ever held. I'rovMon was made for seating about 125 at tli tables, but the number present exceeded 225. An or chestra from Mt Pleasant added to the pleasure of the gathering. Dinner was served at 1 o'clock, and utter the blessiog was asked by Rev Mr Uarker, the long line of people were soon at work. There were some brief after-dinner speeches, interspersed with singing. Superintend ent Smith presided and culled first on Dea Henry Falrchild, who indulged In remlnl'i'enfipA. M i). HtiHirur hn.fl a pleasing announcement for the company In that I lev Mr Itirker had accepted the call of the church and st ciety to become Its regularly installed pastor. A com mittee consisting of M. C. Rodger, W. M. Reynold and A. P. Smith, represent ing the church and society, bad been ap pointed previously to wait on him, and Mr Rodgers happy announcement was the result. Mr Rodgers spoke of the sat isfaction of the people in Mr Barker's decision. Rev Mr Barker, next called for, referred in a titling manner to his connection with the Newtown church, and got even with the toastruaster by tel ling a little story at his expense. Wil liam Falrchild aW spoke briefly. Then followed some race;) at the lake side. An amusing contest was the foot race be tween ItO of the men of the parish. Dea Henry Falrchild entered the lists, and was given a handicap. lie proved a winner. Rev Mr Harker was badly dis tanced. There was also a potato race, which was won by K. S. Lovell, a three legged race, won by Fred Hubbell and Henry Moore, and a sack race for the boys. The boats were in demand. The oorter would not forget to mention the call game, the most remarkable play be ing the three-bagger of Ilervey Wheeler, who sent the ball a quarter-mile or more Into the lake. The company consumed about three -10-quart cans of lemonade. No one was allowed to go away thirsty. been quite sick for several week", and does not seem to gain. - OUR SUMMER VISITORS.

THE ORGAN RECITAL TO-NIGHT At the Congregational church, this (Friday) evening, an organ recital will be given that should not fail of drawing a large audience. While the principal fea ture of the evening's entertainment will be the rendering of music from the new Vocallon organ recently put in -the church, the other numbers of the pro gram cannot fall to be of musical inter est, comprising as they do vocal solos and duets and violin and .cornet solos with the organ accompaniment. A vo calist of note from out-of-town will as sist In the evening's entertainment and the members of the choir will also be heard in pleasing selections. As Is well known, tbo proceeds are to go toward wiping out a small balance still due on the organ, which should bean additional incentive to attend, though this induce ment is not at all necessary, for the pro gram will stand on its merits and furnish a very enjoyable musical evening to those who attend. Tickets for the entertain ment are on sale at the stores in the Street and at Warner, Taylor & Curtis Sandy Hook. THE SCHOOLMASTER ABROAD- On Long Hill, with Its McAdam of the bet road in the state, we notice this unique advertisment, Earley appels For sail." Now the capital F was put In probably because of some extra "Red Astrakhan" "appel" that took the eye. If the apples were as bad as the spelling, they must have been very wormy. Long Hill Is too beautiful, too classical, to be dis figured In such a way. G. W. B. CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH TOPICS. "THE ISLES SHALL WAIT FOR HIS LAW." For centuries the islands that thickly dot the southern Pacific had been waiting for some influence to be brought to them from Christian lands that would throw some little light on their dark night of gross heathenism. This light came in the early part of this century through the labors of some heroic men and women who gave up their homes more complete ly and severed their relations with all they held dear more thoroughly than did Abraham when he left Ur of the Chal dees for a country that he knew not. The story of these heroic lives will be told next Sunday evening, August 19, at the missionary meeting to be held in the Congregational church at 7.30 o'clock. The exercise of the children will be pret ty and instructive and the paper read by Miss Scudder will briefly tell of a most wonderful life. Following is the pro gram : Opening hymn. Congregation realm. Prayer. Selection, Choir Scripture. "The Lite ot John G. 1'aton, missionary hero to the New Hebrides," Paper reail by Miss Susie J. 8culler "The Mission Ships, Evangels ot Comfort and Peace," Exercise by the children Address, "A sketch ot missions in the South Seas," The Pastor Selection, Choir Hymn.

The coming year will again be marked by a number of new departures and increased facilities for betterwork. lhe tuition remains at the same low rate, notwithstanding all the advantages offered. The Classical course prepares for college, but the Regular or Academic course is adapted to the wants of a large class of young men and women who desire a preparation for teaching and for the actual business of life, but do not expect to enjoy further school advantages. btudents wno enter the school late in life or for other reasons do not wish to take up the full course may select for themselves what studies they wish to pursue. Several of the studies in the regular courses are elective. The school has recently been equipped with much new apparatus, including some laboratory supplies, and experimental teaching of the physical sciences will henceforth be a prominent feature of the school. The class in Physics, this year, shonld be even larger than last. Six recitation hours a week, or more, will be given for Book-keeping, Business Forms and Commercial Arithmetic to those members of the Academic course who wish to make their course largely a business one. Instruction in Vocal Music (Charts), Drawing and Painting and Physical Cul ture (including Delsarte) will be continued, this year. The study of English, its grammar and its literature, has been given a promi nent position in the school. Rhetorical exercises will, this year, be held each week, consisting of orations, declamations, essays and recitations. The progressive new education ideas permeate the work in all the departments. In order to secure the best results it is only necessary that the attendance shall be regular. Want of success in the studies is usually traced to absence from recita tion. The parents are asked to aid the teachers, so that there may be no absences, tardinesses or dismissals except in cases of necessity. There is need of study out of school by all the pupils in any full course. If there is no study at home the parent may be sure that there is a want of faithfulness. The Preparatory Department The pupils in this department enjoy mani fold advantages by being connected with the academic work. They all receive Instruction from the special teacher-: and marked success has crowned the efforts put forth in behalf of the very youngest classes in physical training, singing and drawing, as well as in the regular work. Few schools offer the advantages to the pupils of the lower grade that are given here. Considerable apparatus and many choice supplementary reading books have lately been put in the rooms upstairs. More definite announcement will be made later. For further information address, PRINCIPAL NEWTOWN ACADEMY, NEWTOWN, CONN. THE SQUARE USE OF PLAIN ENGLISH. V - WE SHOW WHAT WE ADVERTISE.
