Last Saturday was a busy day
among the Redhillians. In the
morning there was preaching and
the usual monthly conference. In
the afternoon the Woodmen Circle
had their usual meeting at which
one candidate was initiated. The
Circle has about thirty-five mem
bers now and several applications
have recently been accepted.
After the Circle had its meeting
the W. O. W's. used the hall and,
let me tell you, they certainly used
that goat." Three young men
were introduced into the forest
of woodcraft and went through
well, taking their "medicine" like
men, and riding that mysterious an
imal like heroes. We are expecting
to have about three more to initiate
on the next meeting night, the
