It in only of lateyoara that thn Importamw of preferring roeor.Js of Western life in tho early days has i.-wsn recognised.

The I horses ware then wraiked toward the hard and had coma wtttv In VOO varus before the buffefta WWW aware uf danger.

Tho pastor. Rev. .1. K. Ibighson, also made a happy and good-natured s|>wch. which aided In keeping the audience in the best of humor. After refreshment* were serwnd, the audience lingered and sang many more of tho old Scottish songs, closing with tho National Anthem 'Aold Lung Syne."
