law, with the same success that has crowned
similar efforts in past years, so far as two of
these measures were concerned. Like one of
Dicken’s characters we “have formed and expressed
a variety of opinions” upon other subjects, -
the wanton destruction of shade trees along our
roads, by telephone and telegraph companies,

696th session with Sarah T. Miller who
was accused of trying to prove to her all-

Pattie T. Farquhar, Eliz. Tatum, Fanny L. Dickinson,
Mrs. Baynes, Ethel McKaye, Mary Moore Thomas,
Eliz. I. Scott and Elizabeth Moore.

28 such auxiliaries to be heard from now.

The Sec’y gave her long-enduring friends a
chance to elect a new officer in her stead, but as
some one frankly stated they still “preferred the ills
they had“ rather than “fly to those they knew not
of”, she consented to serve again.

Sarah T. Miller’s excellent sentiment was copied
of that we are sure, but must have been lost in
