The annual repcrt of Secretary A.

Besides a complete statement as to
finances, it took up the attendance of
the men1 and boys at the Sunday meet

has been an increase of 65 per cent
at the religious meetings of all kinds
this year. The to'al number for' the
year at the 33 Sunday men's meet
ings, 42 noon meetings at the plow J
shop and several meetings at the rink j
was 5,549, fully twice as large as last
year's total. The attendance at the

Christianity and joined churches as a
direct result of the Y. M. C. A. meet

boys enrolled as members of the as

over last year It is the desire of the
directors to double the membership
during the next few months.
