ONE of the interesting and attractive features of the

celebration was the display of historical relics.  It was a

matter of great regret to the Committee that a list and

catalogue of the articles, with the names of owners and ex-

hibitors could not be prepared before the celebration.

The following is a complete list of articles displayed.

The value of the list would be greatly enhanced could the

name of the owner of each of the articles be given, but this

is impossible.
