Rev. Father Brazil said he felt satisfied that this gathoring of old pupils after an interval of many years was a great compliment and consola tion to their olt preceptor. Teaching was a sacred and noble profession, and, next to the parent, he know of no other who exorcised a greater influence over the young mind, He was not in Williamstown during Mr Rico's term of oflico, but he had abundant evi dence of his successful work in the many sterling members of his pre...

OPEN-SEA BAT'IIING. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." S,--If there is any great desire to see progress in this town, then let attention be directed to the most urgont require mcents. A probllem that sooner or later will require some attention, is open-sea bathing, a thing fromn a health point of view-that ought to Ihe encouraged instead of otherwise, So why not deal with the matter in its in fancy and provide some facilities for bathers to undress and dress. It is beyond reason to expect our women folk (who are so fond of the water) after bathing to walk perhaps 2 or more miles to their homes in wet clothes On the other hand it is not in accord ance with decency, to have men .tand ing about with leoss on than a shirt, Now, Sir, I do not think that the Council need go to any great expense by providing sheds.
