The Baptist festival last night was a
grand success. The hall was crowded,
the supper was bounteous and good, and
everybody seemed to enjoj' the occasion
very much. The New England Dinner
was the great attraction not so much
on account of the dinner itself, which
varied but little from ordinary dinners,
as from the odd costumes and odder
manners of the representatives of that
region of sunrise. Mrs. Noble, as mat

ladies completed the female part of the
household, while C. W. Lyman (with
his hair parted in the middle iu true
