The third anniversary of the Loyal Hearts of Oak female lodge, of the Manchester Unity, was held in the Victoria Hall on. Wednesday evening, 23rd rust., and proved to be a great success. The committee arrangements were well carried out, and everything went as •■'merry as marriage bells.
His Worship the Mayor (Mr W. B. Scandrett) and Mrs Scandrelt were present, and heartily welcomed by the Sisters of the Lodge. Bro. IT Miller, Master of Ceremonies, opened the social with a grand march, which was led off by the Mayor and his lady, which was quite a feature of the evening . During the evening His Worship addressed the company on the success of the Hearts ox Oak Lodge, and the advantages of girls making themselves independent by joining a benefit society. .During the evening songs were rendered by Miss Shea and Miss Stead, who are both possessors of good voices, and sing in a very pleasing manner. Miss Ray also danced the Highland Fling. Tea was laid at 11 p.m.. a very tasteful effect being given by 'using the euchre tables decorated with fancy table cloths, some of which were real works of art, and provided by the sisters of (he Lodge. The catering was done by Mrs d. Miller, of the A.M.C. refreshment rooms, the tea being breweft by the girls, as only they know how to do, one young man saying there was no boarding-house stuff about it. The company broke up at 2 o’clock a.m., over one hundred couples hieing present. During the evening the music was supplied by Messrs Harvey and Humphries’ orchestra, with Miss Harvey at the piano. Miss Eva Brass and Mr Gardiner also played during the evening. The suitability of the Victoria Hall for such gatherings was very favourably commented upon during the progress of the social.
