The annual meeting of the congregation ot St, Stephen's Church,.
East Delta, was held there on the
14th inst_ The Rev. J. H. White,
minister of the charge presided.
Excellent reports were presented by
the Session* Managing Board, W.
F. M. S. and Sabbath School. The
finances of the- congregation are in
a nourishing condition and an excellent spirit pervaded the meeting.
Tbe ladies of the church provided
light refreshments, and a pleasant
social time was passed,, after the

back to tbe old stage-coach days of
the eighteenth century?    Are  we
living   in   the   hustling,   bustling

away in the far backwoods of Mus-
koka?    We are certainly  not  alive
to our rights and  to  our interests,
and are the townspeople of I.adner
to sit quietly   still   ami   accept just
what   is   offered   them.    Are   our

o:te to stop her slio wa9 out of tbe car
liittl across the street Two Indies who
had sat next to ber looked with unx-
ious Indifference on tbe floor. Ono of
them leaned slightly forward, but said
nothing. Just as the conductor was
reaching for the bell rope si youirg rcau
spied tbo coin and dashed out of the
cnr. He caught the lady wbo bad left
the car, handed her the coin, ran back,
caught tbe step of tbe car as the motors began to sing In crescendo and sat
down breathless. One of the two ladies
opposite him leaned forward and said
coldly, "Young man, what did you do
with the nickel 1 droppedV" The pns-
seugers tittered. An old man at the
othor end of tbe car 'turned to his
neighbor. "That reminds mo," lie said,
"of something that happened to uiy

"It was before the days of conductors, when wo used to drop our nickels
