Presbyterian Sunday School Anniversary. The Presbyterian Sunday School Anniversary was held on "?'linday. The School -was very unfortunate in striking such a day, a* rain was falling copiously at frequent intervals. Under the circumstances, nobody could expect anything else than moderate attendances a- d reduced finances, which, lnv.u i>r, w-re bit- ter than one would anti. ¡pate. Rev. A. G. Roy conducted a l three services. His morning text wa* "In quietness and confid nee shall be your Strength" and lie described how a Christian life did not show itself by developing a continual state of bustle and tun.ult, but rather by a calm and untrnublc' mirri even under trying condition-. In thc even- ing his subject was "Go Forward'' when he set forth that quietness did not involve laziness and that true Christian life was only fully sh iwn by Christian service, and that the call was ever onward to higher attainments of character and exper- ience.

Much and Nothing Much. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 December 1910
Much arid Nothing: Much. [By "BEN BOLT"] Brother "Putitnn" of 'he Clitic bumped up against some of the Fed lat Ministers over the recent note issue nf one .£1 note and one fiver. The Single was presented to Andy Fisher Our brother laments thus by. ' It is not, I believe, a plank^of the platform that Labour menbers should is- sue notes presentation among themselves. Of course the face raine of the notes is a trifle, but to collectors of postage stamps, bottles, etc., they, as a first issue are very valuable indeed, although, of course, the Ministers who holds them haven't considered this beastly sordid side of the matter." That old chap in Adelaide that didn't know who he had married was pretty lucky. Some men reckon they know too well, but oí course that's when they arrive home after a evening down town on business or been detained at the office. He mast hare been an obliging sort of customer. Anyway, may he lire long to enjoy his fortune. Talk about our Mr. Census man want- ing to ...

THE DELORAINE COUNCIL AND THE FRIENDLY SOCIETIES' SPORTS COMMMITTEE. (To THE EDITOR) [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 December 1910
THE DELORAINE COUNCIL AND THE' FRIENDLY SOCIETIES' SPORTS ? COMMMITTiiE. (To TUB EDITOR) Sir,- In your issue of the 3rd. inst. I notice a few notes re the above by "Ben Bolt". In his notes he says don't blame the Friendly Societies Who llieii, Mr. Editor, is to blame? Not the Council surely, at least that is my humble opinion. I am convin- ced that the Deloraine Council were studying the society's interests by charging them the 15 per cent tariff for it gave the committee sole right to the ground for the day. If the Council had fixed the tariff at 10 per cent, the tennis players &c had as' much right to the ground as the Friendly Societies people, and all one had to do would be to carry a tennis racquet and pass in. Of course I do not say that the tennis people would resort to anything like this but still the game could be worked that way and no one be any the wiser. I think .myself that the Council treated the Friendly Socie- ties people very fairly and if all one hears is ...
