which testilled to the carcful traiuing to
which the members of the clubs had suh
jected themselves. The efforts of tho latter
were rewarded with liberal applause, and
the extreme satisfaction of everyoua pres
ent was evident. The whistling of Mr.
Taylor and the yodling of Mr. Llewellyn
were particularly ploasing, but it is hard to
dlaorlmlnate when every selectiou was so
good. The club on Sunday took chnrgo of

from the text, " Couie ye yourselves

The sermon was upou "The Beuerits, Dan

tits of the auuual OUttng. aml urgedthata
man should not leave his religiou or his
mauners hehiud hlm when he goes upon his
suminer vacation. He also urged a better
! ohservance of Sunday as a day of rest, and
paid the followiug deserved tribute to the
fouuder and proprietor of Camp Watson:
" It was to ald iu ratifying this auuual neeil
of 'a desert place to rest awhile,' that this
camp was projected and titted up by its
large-hearted fouuder. All cannotgetaway
from thelr homea and busiuess; but here is
a spot so near that those who are tied up to
their daily duties can visit it daily or
weeklv, witbout 1-iaving home for a pro
longeii abseuce. I cougratulate the genial
proprietor of this camp upon the actpiisition
of this beautiful summer-home, to which
both he and his frieuds cau ' come ajiart
aml rest awhile.' I cougratulate hlm upon
the wonderful suceess which has atteuded
his enterprise. But most of all 1 cougratu
late hhu upon his praisoworthy provision
fur the rellglOUi ohservance of the Ijord's
day, a provision which is too often neg
lected iu estahlisaing summer resorts. We
have a right, therefore, to ask aud expect
God's blessiug upon this place, which has
beeu so notably improved aud beautified.
We have a right to hope for the permanent
suceess and prosperity of Camp Watsou.
The services have all beeu well atteuded.
