Perhaps more frequently it would send its monrnful cadence as tua moruu rc ,n.in. ntnna who had fouebt life' battle and was again called home would be borne over the threshold there to receive the last funeral rites , dpnarted. On Sundays it would call them to diviue service and its morning tone would at times recall mnny a wandering soul as the beacon light tends to guide tbe mar iner through the dangerous narrows and by the perilous rocks to a safo harbor beyond. Among the many things that the Bishop called their attention , to was that they should do all in their power to give tbeir children a good education. He closed' his remarks by hoping that in the near future No Walpole would be able to give some young men to the service of the church '" and the cause to which all belonged. The musical entertainment givon at Union hall Thursday evening was well attended. In addition to the local talent there were present Mr Pao:nd Miss George or Kutianu, miss van Buren of .boston ana Mrs Marls, wara oi us Vnt Territory.

Miss Van Burcn's ability is too well known to need any comment on our part. Mrs Ward has a very good voice and was well received. Miss Emma Lane of Westminster gave some very line selec tions on the piano showing excellent ability. Among our local may 9ingers we wouia men r tion the name of Miss Minnie Crossett. . This young lady has a very fine voice of good tone and depth. Taken all together it was a very en joyable lime. The only thing we did not ap prove of during the entertainment was the ap pearance of four colored street musicians who appeared four times during the entertainment.
