Matter.

tion of the Episcopal diocese of Vermont
was held in this city today, the work be-

the name of the church the convention
does not deem it advisible at this time."
The resolution was laid on the table.

ports and routine work. The report of

invested funds and everything in excellent
condition. 't

Fr Sutton Telia of Tliluc That Are llend
In People Down.
The fourth in the series of lectures to
non Catholics for the second week was
given at St. Monica's Church last evening
to a large and much interested audience.
The subject was "Four Gates of Hell."
On the first road we find a violent mob,
we hear their curses, blaspheming, wran
gling and quarreling. Over the entrance
of that gate we read, "Entrance into hell
for the curser and blasphemer." One of
the first commandments that God gave
on Mt. Sinai, when he proclaimed the
law to Moses as follows, "Thou shalt not
take the name of the Lord thy God in
vain."
At the entrance of the second gate is
written overhead: "Entrance into lfell for
all those breaking the Sabbath Day." For
God's commandment is: "Remember thou
keep holy the Sabbath Day." God it is
true has a right to every day, we should
worship him every day, for he is onr Su
preme Lord and Master. But God knows
the need we have to provide for the
body. He has limited ns to one day. We
then wish to rob God of this one "day of
worship.
Written over the third gate is: "En
trance into Hell for the Impure.'" God's
law says: "Thou shalt not commit Adult
ery." Unfortunate as it is it is a common
thing, the fornicator, the adulterer.
As the entrauce of the fourth gate we
find written overhead "Entrance into Hell
for the Drunkard." St. Paul says, "The
drunkard shall not enter the Kingdom of
Heaven." Drunkenness is a crime which
includes all others. The drunkard com
mits almost every crime. He does not
worship God; curses and blasphemes; ne
glects his family: guilty of Impurity -,steals,
will take things that are not always his
own ; robs from his own faintly what be
longs to them. He is guilty of almost ev
ery crime,
The subject of tonight lecture is "Is One
Religion as Good as Another?"

added milk to its business when the milk
dealers raised the price from five to six;
cents, will on Monday next branch out
intoa much larger undertaking, that of
furnishing meats, groceries, provisions
and bread to its now large number of

TROUBLE WAS ADJUSTED.
Fred Ilruce Speaka ef Ilrewer Worker'
Union Trouble,
Mr. Editor: I wish to speak of a mat
tor which is of interest to all union men in
Barre and vicinity. There were circulars
sent to Barre by an agent of the Brewer
Work's Union during their strike in Bos
ton last year. Some of these circulars are
being distributed now, which is a rank
injustice not only to tbe Brewery Work
er's union but the handlers of these goods.
