n of the Tufts pictures, there was an attractive dramatic entertainment furnished, and it was at a late hour when the meeting 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

His death caused a vacancy in the ranks of the faithful workers which was hard to fill, and it is but just his name should appear in this history of the church. At Mr. Powers' suggestion, the church members adopted the individual communion cups in 1898. The Men's Club was also started during the same year. But 1898 will be chiefly remembered as the year in which the old debt was raised, and the parish was able
880, 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 schich have greatly added to its appearance. Mrs. A. H. Carvill's class gave the one in the infant class room, Mrs. G. D. Haven's class that which represents Jesus among the doctors, Mrs. S. W. Fuller's class the two on the opposite wall, and Mr. A. Hodgman's class the one of St. Cecilia. The good example set by these classes should be emulated by others, until our vestry walls are embellished by ten or more fine pictures. Our Sunday School may well take pride in the knowledge that at least
