The most striking and enjoyable event of this week was a delightful launch ride and oyster roast. The participants were: Misses Nettie, Della and Lucy Bell Powell, and Messrs. Wm. M.

The boat left Cricket Hill about 3 o’clock in the afternoon for the home of Mr. Saunders, of Middlesex, where his three daughters, Misses Levanda, Ola and Nannie Saunders, and his son, Mr. John Saunders, joined the merry party making the event gayer and happier. The party left the Saunders shore about 5:30 and reached Cherry Point shortly afterwards where a good many oysters were purchased.
