Owing to certain changes in

cord is two weeks late.
Punctuality is an old-fashioned
and unpopular virtue, and why?
It should by right rank with
truth and charity and love
and peace, for the violation of
it causes much sin. A wealthy
Christian family always took the;r
u,oSage m small trunks when
travelling, for they said the lifting
of huge Saratogas made the poor
feliows swear and almost "broke
their backs. How much swearin"-.
think you, has been caused by the
failure of somebody to keep an ap
pointment? How much valuable
time lost? How much chafing of
the spirit" and fretting of temper?
Many persons are habitually
tardy. It is with them a habit,
and a very bad one. They may
not miss the time lost, but to those
whom they have kept waiting the
"latter is serious. The consequence
. , 1
is that it has become customary
to say, "appoint the hour ahead so
astocatoh them at the right time."
You are asked to a reception from
five to seven, and some other
people are expected from seven to
nine. You go at six, somebody
else at half past five, and so on,
lagging in and lapping over the
hour and seriously incommoding
your hostess. Why should it be
considered elegant to keep people
waiting, and give unnecessary
trouble? And why should prompt-

was compelled to sit down to her

her departing guest, who hastily
"snatched a bite,'' and rushed out,
meeting the first batch of lag
gards on the steps.
Of course the hostess smilingly
served her tea without the the
intended Hamlet of the play, but
who can excuse such rudeness?
Where invitations are issued for
a whole evening, ad. libitum, a
wide margin might be forgiven,
but now-a-days you are told when
to come and when to go.
But society delinquents are tri
fles compared with people who
come late to church. At the
Episcopal Church all who are late
miss the General Confession and
Absolution which is the very ker
nel and essence of the service. At
other churches they carefully
avoid what they term the "open
ing exeiist s," as if singing, read
ing and praying were not praising
Shall we not i n all kindness

Broadway Christian Church
The Congregation of the Broad
way Christian Church hold their
meetings in Morrison Chapel of
Kentucky University at present.
Their church carpet was laid and
some of their pews placed there,
and it is very comfortable. There
are additions at nearly every sor
vice,and candidates for baptism use
the new baptistry at the Chestnut
Street Church. The work of
clearing away the rubbish at the
old church is progressing well and
the brick work on the parsonage
facing on Second street is begun.
The foundation of the church
building is nearly completed. An
efficient building committee watch
es every step.
A Friend ofTlie Itcrord.
"The March number of The
Record is here." writes a friend
in Kansas, and I read it through,
advertisements and all. It is
growing to be quite a paper. I
think the la3t two numbers are
most excellent specimens, and
such an enterprise to care for
the sick deserves the patronage,
not only of all the church people
in your community, but of all the
business men as well, for it speaks
well tor the citv of Lexington.
The business men ought to sub
scribe for it. and send it abroad
as an advertisement for the
town. It shows up the better na
ture of the citizens to good ad
vantage. A friend in a distant citv writes
"Received March number of The
Record. Send it on. I enclose one
dollar. It is a perfect little gem
