The unusually fine harvest weather ensured that

halls and Church for these Services. To the following,

who so kindly preached for us, we are deeply indebted: —

Drumgor, the Revs. G. Mann and T. H. Frizelle; at

Edenderry, the Revs. W. W. Nash, and R. Barnes.

In the Parish Church the Revs. T. Parr, R. H. White

and Canon Taylor were the preachers. It was

encouraging to see such fine attendances at all these

services and also at the Children's Service on Sunday


The full choir, under Mrs. Casey, led the singing

and were deservedly complimented by Canon Taylor

on their performance, in spite of the fact that owing

to the " black-out" it was possible only to hold two


To all those who sent material for decoration, and,

who helped in arranging it our best thanks are due.


Mrs. W H. Best has been the recipient of two

presentations from parochial organisations on the

occasion of her recent marriage. On Sunday, October

22nd, she received a fireside chair from the teachers and

pupils of Seagoe afternoon Sunday School; and at a

social evening organised by members of the choir in

the Parochial Hall, she received a clock as a token of

their esteem and good wishes. Mrs. Best has rendered

loyal service both as a Sunday School teacher and

choir member, and we are glad to know that she will

continue to help in these spheres. We wish both Mr. and

Mrs. Best much happiness and prosperity in their married life.
