A M erry C h ristm a s a t th e County Dome..-All I n m a te s :!Remem.berea, It wa's a happy thought of Super­ visor Charles Fellows that the in­ mates Of the county home be given gifts on Ohristmas mprning to glad­ den their hearts. Acting upon th is suggestion, at the recent visit of the Board of Supervisors at the home a fund was placed in the hands of MrS| Frank Zoller for the purpose of mak­ ing pniChaSCSj and the reports we get from there is that Ohristmas time at the Oonnty Home was tha most enjoyable • for many years. Every inmate was the recipient of a box of candies and oranges, and besides, Mrs. Zoller gave the women ft nice apron and tho men a pair of gloves. Mrs. MeOlenthen, wife of Presiding Elder McOlsnhen, suggest­ ed to several ladies in -Herkimer to mako au apron for the women' there so they had an additional apron, and the women at tbe home greatly appreciated the thonghtfuliness of the Herkimer ladies. Then Mrs, Zoller had an excellent dinner for them, in which a nice hot oyster staw was provided, and which so many are very fond of. Altogether the Ohristmas time at the County Home was one of the merriest ever had there. \ Superintendent and Mrs, Zoller certainly try to make those people happy aud comfortahlo, aud evidently no criticism can ho made hy any one,of the present management. P i l g r i m P i iw ie r . A charm ing event took place a t the home of Mr. and Mrs. O. E, Snyder last Wednesday, when they enteriiainetl the Social Tea Giuh at thfeix Bemi-monthly m eeting.

The repast was a Pilgrim’s turkey dinner following which a delightfnl social time was enjoyed. As a reminder of the Paritan days, the ladies wore ’kerchiefs and w h ite caps.
