ulterior, Alaren 16, SO. A large gathering took place last Wednesday evening, at the residence of Krank Bush, lo Superior, to partake of a free oyster supper, and to listen to the closing exercises of the A. S. F. Society. It liad been the intention ofthis society to give a public exhibition in the school house, but "circumstances alter caaes," consequeutly tlieír meetings closed with a few exercises and a supper, with which the most fastidious could liave found nof.iult. The program was the same as usual, varying only with an address f rom our president, Mr. T. B. Geer. It was wel] deliyered and showed that much care had been expended on its preparation. The reports of our secretary, Miss May Quackenbush, have shown throughout that she, for one, has taken a decided interest in the meetings of the club, and we hope she will be called upon to fill that office at our next organization. Much disappointment was feit in regard to the absence of some of the members, who were prevented from coming by sickness and other causes, but what "couldn't be cured had to bcendurcd," and after the inner man had been refreshed, the terminus of the society, which was organized with a view of self-improvement, was pronouuced a grand success. We had forgotten to mention the nicely bound book which was presented to our president, in behalf of the members, by the treasurer, Miss gbankland. It was riven with a few well chosen words, and was received with much surprise; but Taylor was cqual to the emergency and made appropriate remarks due the occasion. A vote of thanks was extended to Mr. and Mrs. Bush for their help during the arrangements, and also for the free use of their house.
