Infirmary Director Elmoro Andor- son had au experience Saturday night that lio is not anxious to repeat. He was driving homo in a buggy with bis good wife when EOUIO distance cut on the Princeton pike they were overtaken by the storm. It was dark as pitch and the lightning blinded tha horse. ThorcBult was that the animal lost the road, Elmora conld 120 more sea where he was driving and presently over went buggy into a gully at tho side OL (ho road, upsetting iia occupants into a pond of water und scattering crackers, cheese nnd general line of fancy and staple groceries promiscuously around. The horse stripped itself of the har- ness and started lickety-eplit up ihe pilie for home. Drenched aud soaked, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson pulled out of the pond aud after a rough woary walk of it managed to get home themselves. Tho buggywas recovered next morning.

G. M. Nelson Williams, nnd a more eloquent effort was seldom heaid. The doxology and benediction closed the exercises. The building is a most connuodione one and admirably cjapted for its pur- pose.
