February first ushered in the eighty-seventh birthday of Rev. I. S. Jones, and throughout the day and evening, he had constant reminders of this fact in the form of telephone calls, postal cards and other communications; also remembrances of plants, flowers and candy. From the Friendly Class a very handsomely decorated basket of fruit was received. In the early evening fifteen of the near neighbors called in a body, and Mr. Jones, answering door, was taken very greatly by surprise, for a few seconds, it looked as though they were not to be invited in. When he recovered all were given a most cordial welcome. After some little time being spent on games, and anecdote relating, a very pretty birthday supper was served; an artistic birthday cake, with candles and other pretty decorating, being placed in front of Mr. Jones. After supper a short entertainment was given, closing with the following anniversary ode written by Mrs. Clara A. P. P. Miner:
To greet you, Mr. Jones, for a very good reason.
We all found out in a round-about way,
That Feb. 1st, was your anniversary day.
I know not the years you have rounded out,
But appearance show 65, or there-a-bout.
You're called the youngest in the neighborhood,
As you shovel much snow and cut your wood.
You are so nice and tall and straight,
you're the envy of many of younger date.
You're the best of neighbors, we all agree.
And mind your own affairs, and then if we
Should need any favor, and asked it of you,
You'd give us full measure, that's what you'd do.
Besides, you're a preacher, commanding and smart,
They're mighty scarce, so gifted, in that art.
But perhaps Feb. a reason may be,
As it's furnished other smart men, you see.
As Washington and Lincoln, whose births U. S. celebrates,
Their goodness and honesty, were like your traits.
So we come here to-night to show love and respect,
For you, on how years show little effect,
And present to you this little cyclamen.
May "God be with you till we meet again."
Mr. Jones made a very pleasing response. After singing one verse of "God be with you till we meet again" the company departed, feeling that they might all attend more surprise birthday parties, but never one where the surprise will be greater, or the pleasure of the celebrant more sincere. Mr. Jones takes this opportunity to thank all for their kind remembrances and thoughts.

All the towns people realize and a ppreciate what Mr. Moore is doing for the town by giving the splendid films every Saturday night at a very small admission. Do you, except those who have children in school, realize that the children are given splendid Educational Films which make their studies more interesting? There is one draw back in giving pictures in the day time. The curtains are not dark enough or heavy enough to keep out all the light and it has been necessary to use newspapers. On Saturday night Feb. 23, a Benefit Entertainment is to be given at the school instead of pictures. The tickets will be twenty-five cents. The proceeds are to help buy the much needed black curtains. The tickets will be sold by the school children. Let's all help: buy a ticket.
Miss A. Ellen Stanton:
Miss A. Ellen Stanton, 90, who died Monday at Pine Tree Lodge, Bride Hill, where she had lived for 15 years, had been connected for 25 years with Wheaton College, or seminary as it was in her day, most of which time she acted as its principal. She was born in Manchester, and was educated at Mt. Holyoke. She studied in London and Paris, specializing in French.
Miss Stanton first taught at Maplewood Institute, Pittsfield, following which she went to Wheaton. Relinquishing her connection with Wheaton she lived for 10 years on Westland avenue, Boston. Among distinguished persons who had been her pupils were Miss Mary Woolsey, head of Mt. Holyoke and Prof. Palmer of the Greek department at Vassar.
She is survived by a sister, Miss M. Annette Stanton, and two nephews, L. C. Stanton of Newton, Mass. and Dr. S. C. Stanton of Chicago.

The president Miss Akerman was in charge. Mrs. Alfie Godfrey had the devotions and Mrs. Lucy A. Marston had charge of an interesting program on Japan. It seems very fitting that Miss Anna M. Cole should fill the office of secretary as her mother was an officer for many years, her sister secretary for a long term, and her sister in law Mrs. Cole, came after her. A pleasing feature of the meeting was the singing of two selections by Mrs.Hamilton, accompanied by Mrs. Winchester. Mrs. Cash had charge of the music. A delicious supper of scalloped oysters, sandwiches, all kinds of cake, pickles, etc. was served by the hostess. Her mother, Mrs. Vianna Marston, is one of the oldest members of the society.
