Under most favourable circumstances the  Sunday School of Frizington Primitive Methodist Chapel celebrated its  anniversary on Sunday.

    During the day three services were held  in the spacious Sunday School, which has recently been thoroughly renovated. At  the morning service there was a good congregation. The Rev. P. S. CARDEN,  circuit minister, Cleator Moor,officiated, and preached an interesting sermon.  In the afternoon a children's service, at which the Rev. P. S. CARDEN presided  was held, when there was a
large attendance of young folks and adults, who thoroughly appreciated the efforts of the scholars. The admorable manner in  which the latter rendered
their dialogues and recitations reflected great credit on all concerned and showed that much time and care had been spent on their  training by Messrs. James EDWARDS and Joseph EDWARDS.

    The opening address was given by Mr. B. PEARCE, Dialogues were given by:

Mary E. QUAYLE and Annie SMITH (Cheerfulness)

Lottie WILLIAMSON and Christina EDWARDS, (collection  dialogue)

    In the evening another largely attended  service was held, Mr. CARDEN again officiated. The choir again rendered an  anthem, "Rejoice, O daughter of
Zion," in a praiseworthy manner. Mr. PEARCE sang the tenor solo in the anthem in good style. Theopening address was again entrusted to B.PEARCE, Maggie HARVEY, and C. RUDD, and LottieWILLIAMSONand ChristineEDWARDS gave dialogues, and the following contributed recitations  during the service:
