The children on the A. B. Darling farm were entertained at New Years Party by Mrs. Darling in the hall next to the main house. The hall was decorated with Chinese lanterns, evergreens and a trimmed Christmas tree. Colored candles lighted the darkened room. Each child received several “useful gifts” as well as books, toys, organs, figs and candy.
