Holyoke, April 21. — The Delphian Society presented this week at their meeting at the Hotel Nonotuck a highly imaginative play or operetta entitled “In Mother Goose’s Garden.” The costumes were especially effective, that of Mrs. J. F. C. Forster as a pirate being very impressive with her arsenal of weapons.

Left to right (“S” means standing): Mrs. Edward McAuslin, Mrs. Ernest Boley (s), Mrs. Walter E. Thompson, Mrs. J.F.C. Forster (s), Mrs. Arthur Ryan (s), Mrs. B.F. Evarts, Mrs. Allen Chambers (s), Mrs. E.E. Humphries, Mrs. Frances Heywood (s), Wilhelmina Thompson (s).
