Mr. Gifford, made the large vestry look the finest it ever did with their twinings of greenery. The effect was heightened by many ferns, palms, potted plants, and cut flowers from Holmes' Somerville nurseries. Shortly after 8 o'clock a reception was held by Rev. H. D. Maxwell and Mrs. Maxwell, Mrs. Lydia A. Shaw, Mrs. L. H. Brown, John F. Mills, A. A. Wyman and wife, Miss Angie Williams, George D. Haven, David Horton, and C. A. Kirkpatrick. The guests were presented by W. E. Bolton, A. W. Glines, G. F. Horton, J. W. Mess, Warren Baldwin, R. K. Goodil, R. Y. Gifford, E. M. Hill, Harry Daniels, James Daniels, Oliver Wyman, Lyle Hersey, Mesdames A. W. Glines, R. Y. Gifford, F. M. Burrows, A. K. Spratt, J. W. Mess, Carrie D. Coulter, and Misses A. D. Southworth, Minnie Flagg, Fannie M. Glines, Willa Johnson, and Nellie Saben. In the small vestries and about the right-hand side of the vestry were six handsomely arranged and decorated tables, lighted with candelabra. The many pret
served, and but few societies have as fine a reputation. Mrs. Lyman H. Brown, Mrs. George D. Haven, and Mrs. I. H. Wiley had charge of the supplies in the kitchen, and the guests were served by Mesdames E. C. Hall, Fannie Shaw Graves, J. W. Peak, Ida Smith, Mabelle H. Gooding, J. E. Kelley, Henry S. Barron, A. E. Southworth, W. J. Pingree, R. M. Richardson, P. B. S. Thayer, Frank M. Lowell, Frank Thomas, F. L. Pingree, Robert Hayes, Joseph W. Mess, Edward H. Bolton, Carrie D. Coulter, Arthur W. Glines, Mattie S. Rines, Misses Ella Freeman, Helen J. Whipple, Mary C. Mills, Ida R. Smith, Abbie L. Day, Annie G. Stover, Mary F. Freeman, Estella M. Royal, Alice M. Nickerson, Fannie M. Glines, Mabel G. Delano, Emily Poor, under the direction of Mrs. R. Y. Gifford, head waiter, and Mrs. William Taylor, assistant. During the supper M. J. Messer and his wife and Miss Nettie Coburn gave the following musical selections: Mendelssohn's Festival March; Schlepegrell's overture, Narcissus; a sel
eeting broke up. Altogether it, also, was a very enjoyable occasion, and one long to be remembered by all so fortunate as to be present. In 1890 the interior of the church was re-decorated, and a general brightening of the auditorium took place, at a cost of about $2,100. In 1891 William P. Mitchell, who had been treasurer for fourteen years, declined a re-election. A. Hodgman was elected to succeed Mr. Mitchell, serving with great credit up to the time of his death in 1898, when Arthur W. Glines became treasurer. At the time of the raising of the grade of Cross street and the putting in place of the present steel bridge by the Boston & Maine railroad, the parish claimed damages to the amount of $4,000. A long legal conflict was the result, the final decision being that the society property was not injured, and therefore no damages could be collected. But it cost the society $720 to find this out. Here, again, the women of the parish contributed,—the Sewing Society, $150; th
History of the church (Supplementary.) Arthur W. Glines Eleven months elapsed between the time that Mr. Skinner left us and Mr. Powers came. In that long, weary period the parish went through an inquisitorial experience of occasional candidates and numerous supplies. We listened to a superannuated clergyman one Sunday, with his seventhlies and eighthlies, his lastly, and his word to close; to a young theological student the next Sunday, who gave us vivid descriptions of the Holy Land—wan. May its stout walls, and the hearts of its people, resist the storms of adversity for another five decades, at least, that future generations may enjoy the privileges of its teachings as have those of the past.

nd helped the young men to acquire ease in extemporaneous speaking. Up to January 1, 1889, eight meetings were held, with an average attendance of 9.8, with A. W. Glines, H. M. Haven, S. C. Earle present at each meeting, William Moore absent once, William T. Hayes absent twice, etc. The meeting of February 9, 1889, was a soc, and Edward Southworth, treasurer. A constitution was adopted October 26, 1889, and that evening the first number of the C. C. C. Journal appeared, edited by A. W. Glines. This was a unique affair. Probably copies of the Journal are still in existence among the relics of past members. From January, 1889, to January, 1890, egene Fuller treasurer. The feasibility of the club's printing a fortnightly paper in the interests of the Cross-street Society was presented to the members by A. W. Glines at the meeting of November 4. Christmas eve, December 24, an entertainment was given in the vestry, the shadow pantomime of Puss in Boots, and tableau from
History of the Sunday school Arthur W. Glines As a schoolboy, my favorite study was history, my leisure moments were spent in reading history, and my ideal successful man was one who could write history. Thus it was, when invited to write the history of the Sunday School, I inwardly congratulated myself, and said, Now is my time; at last the long-sought — for opportunity has come. Alas! I little realized, to use a Gilbertian phrase, that an historian's lot is not a happy one. Withuary 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 school reached high-water mark in membership, as the report shows a total of 453 active members in attendance. Friday night was decided upon as the regu
them into the Busy Bees. Later the older members were organized into the Merry Workers. On January 25, 1902, it was decided to reorganize these two societies into one, to be known as the Mission Workers. It was also voted that the new organization should work under the auspices of the Mission Circle. Mrs. Haven, who has been in charge since the beginning, has had several earnest and faithful helpers at various times during the twenty years, among them being Mrs. H. Williams, Mrs. Arthur W. Glines, Mrs. William Wilkins, Mrs. J. F. Mills, Mrs. R. Y. Gifford, Miss Alice Nickerson, and Miss Abbie Southworth. Since 1888 these young misses have raised and contributed about $1,000 to the church, and to other parish and denominational interests nearly $300 more. At every fair they have had a table. They have gone into the houses of the poor and given food and clothing, and gladdened homes with well-laden Christmas trees. To-day this band of young workers is as useful and as f
