The first banquet At Darri'*
When a proud ocean steamer
is launched the enterprise is
usually accompanied with a least
of good tbiugrs; when a wedding
is solemnized the occasion is
made eminent with a joliete—
with good things to hear and
good things to eat.

Darrow Bank must have kad a

kindness of Messrs McCaull and

this object in view, every person

The committee was wisely cho-

promptly and exercised splendid
judgment in selecting gifts that
Messrs McCaull and Underwood
can keep for many years to come.
The committee waited on
Messrs McCaull and Underwood

well to explain that the vocal school at

match is fixed by unwritten law fold-

i*roxc time beyond reckoning the lin-
net's sitigJmg vocabulary has been fixed
and bet into the two divisions known
as ' pleasant song" and ' rough song."
The first consists of a list of retrains,
each of whieh contains more than four J
notes or syllables. If a match is made 1
for "pleasant song." then the contest- !
ing birds mjust stick to their more '
complicated strains, else they ere I

can be t-jcked to sing only "pleasant
