The effective thing j about the itgieement, nccoidlng lo D' I Smart, Is the provision prohibiting re- niai-rlngo for a year. Dr. Smait state 1 that be had quite a number of appli cations fiom persons who wished t.i re-marry, but that so far as his atti tude vvasi , oncerned the pt rsons might fiilllll nil the n qulri m.-nt.-i of the slgne,! iigriimciit and still he would lofuso to re-marrv them.

Heretofore, the pastors have had nothing but the marriage license Is sued at tlie city clerk's ollli e to guide them. Now the parties wishing to re-marry must produce an olllcial document showing the decree of the courts, and oven when this Is pio duceii, sold .Mr. niithrlc, Hie imstors may refuse to pcrfqrni the crremony. Mr. Outhrle said that olio result of tho ugl cement would be to cm tall long stories on the part of persons wishing to re-marry, as tho absence of documentary evidence would at once preclude nnv marriage ceremony.
