JUBILEE CELEBRATION AT INCE. + The Jubilee year has far advanced, neverthe- less its celebration was well maintained at Ince on Tuesday, through the kindness of Mrs. Park-Yates. At an early hour the inhabitants of Ince were astir making preparations for the festivities. The Misses Hutchinson, Mr. C. E. Cullum, Mrs. Mates, Miss Proffit, Mr. C. Ellis, and Mr. Newstead added materially to the appearance of the cheerful square by floating bunting. The church flag was hoisted, and the grounds of the hall presented a pretty appear- ance. The celebration commenced with a ser- vice in church in the afternoon. The Frodsham Brass Band played the introductory voluntary. The officiating clergy were, the Rev. C. Prichard (Thornton-le-Moors), the Rev. E. Charley (vicar), and the Rev. W. J. Armitstead. The sermon was preached by the vicar. A feature of the service was the manner in which the beautiful hymn, 0 King of Kings, of the late Bishop of Wakefield, was rendered. After the Benediction the band played the National Anthem. The following was the order of procession from the church through the park by the newly-made route to the hall:—The banners of the benevo- lent societies, the band, Mrs. Park-Yates and party, including the Dowager Lady Egerton, Mrs. Charley, Mr. E. Griffiths, Mr. C. E. Linaker, and Mr. C. Linaker, the clergy, the Revs. E. Charley, W. J. Armitstead, and C. Prichard, the churchwardens, Messrs. John Warburton and Walter Greenway, the choir boys with flags, choir girls with flags, choir men, Messrs. J. Hughes, E. White, and G. Hale, teachers, Mr. C. E. Cullum, Miss S. Cullum, and Mr. W. Brown, with about a hundred scholars, the churchwardens' wives, the principal tenants, cottagers, and visitors. This formed a very pretty spectacle as it wended its way through the well wooded grounds to the ball. The whole party were invited by Mrs. Park-Yates, and were admitted by ticket. The wants of the children were first supplied. The cottagers were entertained in a large marquee to a meat tea, while the principal tenantry were provided with an excellent repast in the dining-room of the hall, among those present being Mr. W. J. Lee and family (Thornton Hall), Mr. Richard Lloyd and family, Mr. T. Darlington and family, Mr. Robert Smith and family, Mr. and Mrs. Warburton, Mrs. G. H. Dean, Mr. T. Ellams and family. After dinner the Rev. E. Charley made an excellent speech, referring to the occasion which had brought so many together and Mrs. Park-Yates' generosity. —Mr. E. Griffiths, in a neat speech, proposed the health of the Queen. This was heartily drunk, with lusty cheers.—Mr. W. J. Lee (Thornton Hall) then spoke of the pleasure it gave the tenantry to have their good landlady, Mrs. Park-Yates, to live among them. Her presence stimulated them under adverse circum- stances, and they hoped she might be spared many years to live among them. He then pro- posed the health of Mrs. Yates, which was drunk with enthusiastic cheers.—Mr. C. Linaker, in responding on behalf of Mrs. Park Yates, spoke of the good feeling which had always existed between the lamented Capt. Park Yates and the tenantry, and said Mrs. Park Yates hoped that this good feeling would continue. (Hear, hear.) After tea there was a variety of amusements. The proceedings opened with an entertainment on the lawn by the school children. Mrs. Charley has worked very hard for this. The children looked very pretty, being tastefully dressed, and reflected great credit on their instructor. The programme was Country dance,' 'The miller and the maid,' The gipsies and the bogie-man.' The band played the accompaniments. Then followed an enjoyable programme of old English sports, the entries being limited to residents and tenants of the estate.
