The Band of Hope was to have met at tlu
Baptist Church last Sunday at 3 o’clock,
which is the usual hour, and as usual a
large crowd gathered and waited for half an

this confusion ? It was given out by the
SuperiineudenC and also the one that has—
or did have—the church in charge, at the
last meeting that we would meet c n the next
Sunday. For reasons we will not mention
the man’s name, but will expect him to ex
plain wby he did not open the church doors,
as he agreed to—or at any late bv left that
impression upon the minds of said Band.—

explanation, we will say nothing further

of startling incidents, m fact, beyond a few
visitors from other parts of tho county, wo
