Victoria Harbor:

Mrs. Fred Wagstaff is on our sick list this week. Our other members are, as a rule, improving.

Sabbath sleighing was so extra that we had the honor of having a goodly number of ladies and gentlemen from other localities attend our little church Sabbath afternoon. Among those we noticed were Capt. and Mrs. Curry (the contracting parties at a pretty home wedding at Harborville recently) of Harborville and Miss. Cora Clem recently returned from Sommerville Mass. Mrs. Curry, it will be remembered, was the eldest daughter of Capt. Lockhart Morris of Harborville and Capt. Curry is one of the most stirring captains and is well known in this community having purchased our wood and apples last summer and autumn.

 Our holiday season is over at length but if the recent snow stays with us the young people anticipate a pleasant time coasting these moonlight evenings.

Our school has reopened with more than an average attendance. Our teacher, Miss Young, has more than ordinary ability and it is needless to say that our school is progressing favorably under her instruction.

Miss Josie Orpin has been visiting friends at Bridgetown and Tupperville.

We were threatened with a January thaw on Monday but it proved only a false alarm and we are having at length some genuine January winter weather.

Mr. Millage Wagstaff of Granville is spending the winter with his brother Fred of this place.

Mr. Joshua Ogilvie had the misfortune to cut his foot quite badly recently. We are pleased to state it is improving.

Mr. Daniel Ogilvie, our oldest resident was severely injured one day last week by falling. His daughter Lizzie has the charge of the aged parent, who is over fourscore years old.

Mrs. Lonie Parks has returned to her home in Boston, Mass. She was accompanied by her infant daughter. Her husband will remain here till spring.

George Maplebeck of Margaretville spent a few days with Mr. John McKinlay lately.

Capt. Stephen Wagstaff of Schr. Josephine is with us again and, we are pleased to state, will remain with us the winter.

Victoria Harbor:

Our evenings are spent in a most pleasant manner. We have singing school two evenings in the week, held in the new hall at Pleasant St.; the I.O.G.T. holds its Lodge one night in the week, and prayer meeting is held one night, so our evenings are spent in a manner both useful and edifying. Mr. Andrew McBride is our singing school teacher and his genial manner attracts a large number of spectators. He has a school of about twenty-five pupils.

Messrs Congdon Brothers have arrived from Newfoundland where they have secured their timber limits. They have bought another track of timber near Victoria Harbor from Mr. Charles O. Ogilvie, of Aylesford.
