Rev. F. M. Buker, Mrs. Lucy Redman, Mrs. Lucy Marston, and Mrs. Howard G. Lane went to Salem Depot on Thursday last to attend the county convention of the W. C. T. U. Mrs. Lane carried the party in her auto. It was a delightful trip and a pleasant convention. An amusing mistake made by the Salem people, who being near Mass., have daylight saving. They did not realize that other towns in New Hampshire had the old time and waited an hour for any one to appear before they discovered what the trouble was. Rev. F. M. Buker delivered a fine address on the influence of the home, particularly a mother's influence. Two pastors present had just come to the place, Revs. Crowder from Iowa and Mr. Merrill from the South, both wide awake men.
Buy a Bond:
The school bonds have begun to sell, and as only a portion have been reserved for the towns people they are advised to purchase or reserve theirs at once. It is hoped that every one who is interested in the new building will take a bond, even if it is a small one. Information may be obtained at Cole's paper store, or of members of the school board. Make a good investment for yourself, and at the same time show your interest in the children.

Now that cold weather is here the radio concerts are much better. Last Monday the Radio Station at Pittsburgh, Pa. (Westinghouse Electrical Manufacturing Co.) gave a very interesting program. It was started by several phonograph records, the farmers' bulletins followed, stock news, prices of grain, alfalfa, etc., were announced; after this several more of the popular pieces were played; then came the baseball reports of the day; then music again. Then they made an announcement about the Young Men's Christian Association Radio School in Pittsburgh; a violin solo followed and then a baritone solo by Mr. Whitmore. This completed the program for the evening. The voice and music were clearly heard all over the room. This is quite a record in receiving wireless telephone as Pittsburg is 500 miles from Hampton and over such long distances fading is usually noticed. There was very little of this fading noticed at this concert however. Amateurs notice the time schedule printed elsewhere in these columns.
The popularity of Cutler's Seaview House remains undiminished under the management of John B. Rich. Many banquets are being served.

Miss Ruth Hutchison, who was operated on about a month ago for appendicitis by Dr. Heffenger, is making excellent improvement at the Portsmouth hospital and expects to return home this week.
The churches cooperating in the union services are proving that it is not only possible but most enjoyable for folks who honestly differ to work together for ends about which they are agreed. They are fully agreed that Jesus deserves a larger place in human life. To promote this they are all working. For this the meetings are being held. The speakers from out of town have been greatly enjoyed. Rev. F. E. Banks has preached twice, Rev. E. S. Trasker once, Rev. E. F. Newell once, and Mrs. M. H. Wakefield, who spoke so hopefully Tuesday night, will speak again tonight at the Baptist church. Even in the rain of last evening the service of song and prayer and the open Word was much enjoyed. If the reader of this line has not attended any of these meetings won't you hear Mrs. Wakefield this Thursday night? If you have been coming you need no invitation. Meetings Friday and Sunday nights at the Baptist church.
Second Annual Banquet of the Hampton Beach Team:
The Hampton Beach Base Ball Team wish to extend their thanks to the Board of Trade and to Graves and Ramsdell of the casino, for their help in financing the team for this season.
They also wish to express their gratitude to any and all others who helped the team in any way.
On Saturday evening of last week the Second Annual Banquet of the baseball team was held at Cutler's Sea View House.
The food served by Mr. Rich, proprietor of the hotel, was of the highest quality and the keenest appetite of the hungry team and the invited guests was fully satisfied.
After the meal was over and the party had "lighted up" Toastmaster James Eastman called on different ones to speak and the remarks of all were much enjoyed. Mr. Carl Mitchell, who umpired several games this season, suggested that the team should be fully equipped with new uniforms. The cost of these was said to be about $175.00 to $200.00 and Mr. Rich immediately presented them a check of $25.00. Others of $10 and smaller denominations were soon forthcoming and it was found that around $90 was in the treasury toward the new equipment, including the balance of last year.
A committee was appointed with Mr. Carl Mitchell as chairman to get up an entertainment this coming winter to raise the rest of the money and all declared their willingness to help in any way.
A loud cheer was given Mr. Rich and several members of the team by those present, and the party left with the invitation to come again the next Wednesday to a banquet given to the employees of the Street Railway by Cutler's Hotel.
Any wishing to help the team financially may see Mr. James Eastman, Manager for 1922.
