BACKFORD. SALE OF WORK.—On Thursday afternoon the annual parish sale of work was held in the Baok- ford Schoolrooms. Stalls containing a varied, useful, and pretty assortment of plain and fancy needlework, etc., were set out in the main room, and were presided over by Mrs. New, and the Misses Dutton, F. Williams, E. and M. Jones and B. Cummings, while Mr. and Mrs. Teare were in charge of an immense bran pie and a sweet and toy stall in the class-room. The sale was opened at half-past two by Mrs. Swetenham, Moston Hall, who was suitably thanked by the vioar, the Rev. J. M. New, for her kindness on that par- ticular occasion and .her general interest in parish work. Business proceeded very briskly during the afternoon, with satisfactory financial results. The class-room was the centre of attraction to the juvenile parishioners, the bran pie being speedily emptied of its contents and the stock of sweet- meats bought up. Among those who visited the school and patronised the stalls were, in addition to Mrs. Swetenham, the Misses Fairclough, Mrs. B. U. Roberts and Miss Roberts, Mrs. Nicholson (Mollington), Mrs. R. Potts, Mrs. Gibbons Frost, Mrs. J. G. Johnston and the Misses Johnston, Alletson (Stanziey), Misses Joyoe and Miss A. Birley (Sutton). Mrs. Pritchard, Mrs. T. R. Shall- cross and Miss Shallcross (Chester), Mrs. Samuel Holme (Chester), eto. The pro- ceeds of the sale are for the Sunday School and choir funds. A picture postcard of Backford Church, prepared by Messrs. Phillipson and Golder from a photograph taken by Mre. New, met with a great sale. -+-
