ed to tlu taste or all. young and old.

of the experience of last year, it will
help us greatly in the work of this
year. The election of nfticers will
take place this evening, and the per
sons present will express their views
as to the best plan to be followed this
season in awarding prizes. The offi
cers of the association urge the citi
