THE REFORM CLUB.
MKETIMl LAST NKIIIT ADDKESSKJ) I1V HEV.
.11 li. nr." M.tr JIM liorol.is ONLY A KM II
The oppressive heat and threatening as
pect of the weather had doubtless much to
do with the attendance at the regular
weekly gathering of the club last
night. It wus the smallest in point
of numbers that has been held
for months. We do not take this
as any indication of a lack of interest on
the part of those devoted to temperance.
Any place in the city last night would
have been found very uncomfortable to
occupy a stationary position in, to sit
and listen to an address,
however able or instructive,
and the hall of the Reform Club being
neither cool nor possessed of extra ventila
tion, the wonder is not that so few were
present, but that anybody could be found
to muster courage enough to sit a meeting
through. It has been suggested, and we
think the suggestion a good one, that the
Club, to successfully tide over the hot season,
should limit the number of regular address
es to one Friday night in each month, or
two at the most if the occasion should seem
to demand it, filling up the other Friday
night meetings w ith musical exercises,
meetings of a sociable charac
ter, or such other entertainulents of a
varied and pleasing nature, as will suggest
themselves to the club: This will avoid
the necessity of being' rooted to one spot a
full hour or over on a hot night in a close
room, and would admit of moving alnmt
and taking a breath of fresh air without
interrupting or otherwise interfering with
the exercises of the evening.
