CORRESPONDENCE. PUBLIC! INSTITUTIONS. (To the Editor.) Sib,—It mast be only too patent to everyone that the affairs of most insti tutions in this town are at a very low ebb, both financially and owing to the small amount of interest taken in them by the bownfolfe. Strangely enough, almost everyone spoken to blames the town for " not supporting" these insti tutions, Having given the matter serious thought, 1 am persuaded to ask the members of thos° aforesaid insti tutions a question—What are you pre pared to do towards supporting your own clnb, or band or sooiety, or what ever your particular hobby may be ? The question usually put by the late Sir Thomas Bent appeals tome-" Well, what ore you prepared to do ?" To cite a couple of instances of this want of the spirit of independance, we have, firstly, the bond. I am certain that the towns people are willing to do their share of sappoit, bat it seems that the bandsmen are not prepared to do anything (or at least bat a little) towards t...

So Bings Kebie in his "Christian Year" in the Bpace he devotes to St Mark's Day. Tne great Evangelist from whom we de rive the second Gospel appears to have been a Hebrew, end was the son of a "cer tain Mary," living at Jerusalem. His Roman surname wbb Marcus—his Jewish name was John. The former name seems to have been derived from the Latin word "marcus," meaning a &lt;rong hammer It is thus indicative of > ho spv itual power wielded by the eva.-g-iist to break the stony hearts of th G-ntil-s, and to rouse them to penitenor and faith and a ho>y life For it was chiefly for the benefit of Gentiles, and not Jews, that he wrote his account of the life of Christ.
