TOOLERN VALb. fVrnm Our Own Correspondent.) Tuesday. On Saturday evening last the loolern Tale Progress Association wound up a Very successful $ months' season by hold ing a - euchre party and dance. It i% many years now since a euchre party had been held here, and it was a great success, The ball was, as usual, very enjoyable. Besides having established, this season, the telephone and daily mail, two dozen trees were planted on the road, and a movement is now on foot to secure the open piece of laud in front of Mr Wynne's store for a park. The idea is to securely enclose the space, put seats round the trees already growing, lay out flower plots and a rookery or two. Of the remaining portion, a plantation will be made, witn a nursery to supply the road wants, and perhaps some for distribution among local residents interested in thiB arbor work.
