purport but there was very much whispering among the men The pastor said that on the next evening there would be a meeting and an address upon the evils of intemperance in the use of He expressed himself ignorant of the object of the meeting and could not say what course it would be best to pursue in the matter The subject of the meeting came up at our table after the service I questioned my
