over our broad land? With deepest
sense of insignificance all knelt and
to the beat of their own hearts com
muned with infinity. The atoms
of life were in the presence of a
measure of time beyond their limita
tions. The bell was swaying in the
telfrey and from its brazen throat
sounded requiem of the dying cen
tury, but in the reverberation of its
hollow chamber ran airy messages of
hope, things to . be and things to
come, like shadows thrown across
a quiet lake by aspen ' trees. The
bell tolled on, but at the stroke of

advantages of organisation. Among
other things be said that the intention
ot the labor orgaitatlon was not to stir
up strife between employer and em

It is a remarkable fact that during
Mr. Vasey 's career as an organizer in

strike while there bave been chances
for dozens to have been commenced.
It is to be regretted that the gentle
men who were desirous of a union
should not bave completed the idea af
ter inviting Mr. Vasey bere to organise
a uuion, but perhaps it is owing to a
misunderstanding that it occurred. Mr.

Loudly rang the joyous bell and
rising to their feet the people sung
that grand hymnal prayer of Charles
Wesley's, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul."
Benediction closed the service,
which was a marked success. The
singing by a volunteer choir was ex
cellent, and the audience retired to
their home with the parting wish,
