The Social recently held at the residence of Mr. John O'Callaghan, Osgoode, in aid of the Dawson Catholic church, of which Rev. W. T. McCauley is pastor, proved a most successful and enjoyable event in every way.
The night was a perfect one for out door amusements, and the crowd in attendance was composed of equal numbers of Catholics and Protestants, which shows that the community is very amiable and sociable.
Miss Esther O'Connor was the winner of the valuable quilt raffled on the occasion, her ticket, No. 760, being the one drawn from the basket by little Miss Mary McEwen, daughter of Mr. Thos. McEwen.
After the supper, which was a rather sumptuous affair, and excellently served, the pastor delivered a short lecture on the needs of society. In the course of his remarks, Rev. Father McCauley emphasized the desirability of tolerance, friendship, culture, refinement and loyalty and obedience to authority.
The large gathering listened with flattering wrapt attention. The Rev. lecturer was proud to say that all the things he emphasized were fast becoming the personal qualities and property of the people of North Gower.
The people of the parish with the pastor, keenly appreciated the generosity of their non-Catholic friends in attending in such large numbers to patronize the social.
