A GLORIOUS PICNIC AT LAKESIDE.
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

In that I lev Mr Itirker had accepted the
call of the church and st ciety to become

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

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

FALL TERM BEGINS MONDAY, SEPl. 10.
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
