Propagating the Gospel. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 29 December 1899

** ^Propagating lite ftospeï. iSiz good people of Quirindi have been giving thopeelv^s oonsuier ^e ^elf-edveáisenient lately. J|jir^^ jag to devise some means of "pat ting down gambling, drinking, and such youthful vices. U'his Wing interpreted meaus that,the soul cleansers, themselves were incom petent to perform the task allotted to them, and would be glad of ad vice and assistance from the public. Naturally this loud proclaiming of their many sins on any day than Sunday, or Anywhere than the Church roused " the ire of the Quirindi folk who protest, and no .doubt rightly, that ¿hey are no worse than other people, and that the clergy should confine them selves to rectifying these abuses in stead of publicly proclaiming their incompetence. However, the Quirindi people: need not be alarmed ; things H e these happeD in other towns sometimes, and no body seems to think any the leei of the towns whatever they migh think of the parsons who take par in the proceedings.
