      Guiseley - On Whit-Tuesday.

The Ancient Shepherds of the Loyal Abel Lodge held their seventh anniversary at the house of Mr C Popplewell at Guiseley, when members sat down to a most excellent dinner.

      After the cloth was removed the doors of the "Lodge" were thrown open for the admission of strangers, when a number of the wives and sweethearts  and others made their appearance and contributed much to enliven the scene.

Several songs and duets were sung during the evening by the Messrs. Hudson and Booth &c and the comic entertainments of Mr Stead, of the Concert Rooms, Yeadon went off with great eclat and the company retired highly gratified with the hilarity and good feeling manifested on the occasion".
