The many friends of Mrs. W. H. Sterns will be pleased to read the following article cut from the "Granite Falls Minn. News".

Saturday was a real autumn day, and Mrs. Sterns, wife of the Pastor of the Federated Churches wanted to take a guest who was staying with her for a canoe ride down the river where things are especially beautiful at this time. She had a great longing to go; in fact, had she not been blessed with the sunny nature she has, she probably would have raised a commotion when asked to forgo the trip and go instead to the church basement to help with some work which she had already considered finished. But she smilingly laid aside her own plans, and went to the church.

Opening the door of the parlor, she walked right into a good sized gathering of the mother, for whose children she had done so much. The surprise was complete, and the dear lady fairly radiated the happiness she felt at this mark of their esteem.

A little program was put on, consisting of pleasing numbers by Hilma Hove, piano; reading, Mrs. H. E. Peterson, and singing by Mrs. Stoppe. Each of these received an encore, and were very enjoyable.

Then Mrs. Peterson, in behalf of the ladies present, made a very neat little speech, and presented the honor guest with a ten dollar gold piece, as a slight token of their regard for her. There is nothing that could be given Mrs. Sterns to repay her for the wonderful interest, love and care she has bestowed upon the younger children, especially during her stay here. She has worked with them and taught them in many ways, and her unvarying sweet temper and sunny disposition have been a lesson, not only to the little ones, but to the older ones as well. She has won a warm place in the little hearts and endeared herself to all.

After a very good lunch, the party was over. But it was a great success, for all who were there enjoyed it highly, even if they did spoil a perfectly lovely canoe ride!
