TARPORLEY. OXFORD LOCAL EXAMINATION SUCCESSES.— Miss S. A. Holland, of The Outsides, Little Budworth, has passed the Senior Oxford Local Examination held in July last, by which she obtains the title Associate in Arts. Miss S. A. Holland is the third daughter of Mr. John Holland. Miss J. Holland, a younger sister of the above, also passed the Preliminary Oxford Examination held at the same time. DEDICATION FESTIVAL OF THE PARISH CHURCH.—Wednesday being the festival of St. Helen, the patron saint of Tarporley Parish Church, the usual festival services took place. In the afternoon a parochial tea was to have been held in the Rectory grounds, but owing to the wet weather it was thought advisable to have it in the Town Hall. The tables were given and presided over by the Ladies Ruth and Cicely Bailie Hamilton, Mrs. H. Cooper, Mrs. Dixon, Mrs. Fraser, Mrs. Hewer, Mrs. Gordon Houghton, Mrs. Gordon, Mrs. Hall,' Mrs. Hughes, Mrs. Mann, Mrs. Linnel, Mrs. McCulloch, the Revs. E. W. Evans, F. Clifton Smith, and E. Mostyn Ellis. The hall was crowded to excess, but everyone had a most enjoyable tea. During tea the Tarporley Brass Band played outside the Hall, and after tea they adjourned to the Rectory grounds and played there while the people strolled about. Choral evensong was at seven, when the new chimes were dedicated. The chimes are the church's memorial in Tarporley of the 60 years of the Queen's regin and the progress of religion and morality. An excellent sermon was preached by the Rev. H. H. Wright, Pre- centor of Chester Cathedral. The other clergy present were the Revs. W. O. Hughes, E. W. Evans, F. Clifton Smith, and E. Mostyn Ellis. There was a crowded congregation. FLOWER SERVICE AND SUNDAY SCHOOL TREAT.—On Tuesday the annual flower service took place in St. Helen's Church. The weather was all that could be desired, and the church was crowded in every part. The special service was taken by the Rev. W. O. Hughes, assisted by the Revs. E. W. Evans, F. Clifton-Smith, and E. Mostyn Ellis. The Rev. A. T. Powley, vicar of Shenstone, preached, taking for his subject a Bunch of flowers.' Before the sermon the children walked in order up to the altar rails, and presented their floral offerings, which were received by the clergy and placed upon the altar and altar steps. After the service Mr. Grocott packed all the lovely flowers-404 bunches—in hampers, and sent them to the Convalescent Homes in Rhyl and New Brighton, the Northern Hospital, Liverpool; and the Clinical Hospital, Manchester. At the conclusion of the flower service all the children who belonged to the Church Sunday Schools were formed in a pro- cession at the church gate, and then marched up to Arderne Hall, where, by the kindness of the Earl of Haddington and the Lady Ruth, and Cecily Baillie Hamilton, an excellent tea had been prepared in a spacious tent, which was soon filled by the 430 happy children. After tea various sports were indulged in, and then all kinds of games and amusements. Before leav- ing, each child received a present.
