THE NIGHT SCHOOL
Will begin in October, by the Clergy and Mr Carey. No boys will be taken under 9 years old; nor unless they regularly attend Sunday School or Bible Class. The night school was originally started for the members of the Bible Class; as anyone may become a member, the Night School may be said to be open to all. The attendance charge is one penny per night, which includes lights, fire, use of books &c. from seven o'clock to nine on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

YORKLEY WOOD
It is not possible to fix in the almanac page of this month's magazine the Sunday on which Holy Communion will be administered.

Mr. Adams has begun his night school.

On Sunday October 4, there will be a Litany and Catechizing in Bream Church at 3 o'clock; and evening service at 6.30. If this change seems to fall in with the views of the greater portion of the regular attendants at Church, it will be continued through the winter, on the first Sunday in each month. There will be no christenings on these Sundays and the Psalms will be chanted.
