Mr. J1. WV. Henderson of Lauretns tells
rhe Advertiser that Februairy of this
year will have five Sundays and that
10 other February sInce 1870 has had
to many. Hie relatis that an evange-.
lst, -preachIng at Poplar Springs
shurch in that year, ealledl attention
to the circumstanice of five Sundays
in the month and requested the men
af ,thie congregation to pledge them
uolves not to take another dlrink of
wvh akey utntil another such February
ERrrlved, Iiat three men "stood lip,
rindi that, to the best of his ktnowledlge,
they kept the pledIge.' While three is
rnot a large number, we think it was
large enoutgh for the 'Lautrens congre
i~ttion of those days.
The aigns are that a great many
nien will wvait for another February of
five Sutndatys beforeo taking a todd~y,
whether they stand up or not.
In passing, It may be observed that
the Five Sunday Februar'y is not peen
