a pastor, many candidates were heard, but not till December, 1877, did the parish decide upon a successor, when the standing committee was authorized to invite the Rev. W. S. Ralph to become the pastor, a position which he held until the summer of 1880. It was during the pastorate of Mr. Ralph, January 21, 1879, that the parish received a bequest of $5,000 from Mrs. Hannah Tufts, widow of the late Charles Tufts, and she provided that a portion of the amount should be used to purchase and put inew society united with it; this at a time when we could ill afford any depletion of our ranks, and the loss of these families was seriously felt at the time. Another season of unrest while candidates were being heard occurred from the summer of 1880 to March, 1881, when the society extended a call to the late Rev. Charles H. Eaton to become its pastor. Mr. Eaton was then settled in Palmer, Mass. He, however, declined the invitation; possibly he had at this time a similar proposition under c
ry walls. These mottoes, after a long and meritorious service, have lately been retired, and the members of the school can devote more time to the spirit of the law in the absence of these embellishing letters. Rev. W. S. Ralph, then the pastor of the church, acted as superintendent during 1878-1879; and while under his administration, in January, 1879, the school celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary with appropriate exercises. Fred Farnsworth was elected superintendent in January, 1880, but resigned in September of the same year, being succeeded by Mr. Murch, who merely filled out the unexpired term. At the annual meeting on January 5, 1881, Irving Smith was elected to the position, and served two years; after which Augustus Hodgman occupied the place with marked success for five years, followed by George M. Stevens, who served during 1888-1889; Seth Mason in 1890; Arthur W. Glines, 1891 to 1895, inclusive; and A. A. Wyman from 1895 to the present time. In 1895 the scho
