The club members received the
year books at this meeting for the

Mrs. Williams was leader for
the club lesson and had skillfully
prepared her questions bringing
out the closely allied plot and the
authenic history of the play. Mrs.
Gex bad a most interesting paper
on the character of Octavia and
the Roman Nation of that day
which was very instructive.
Mrs. Job cleverly assisted by her
niece. Miss Harris served to her
club members a most delectab'e

tea. This combined with the pleas-
