THE HARVEST THANKSGIVING SERVICE
This Service seems to gain greater favour with our people every year; at least it must be so, if so much interest is taken in decorating the Church, and so many come to join in the thanksgiving at Evening Prayer. On the evening of Wednesday, October 11, the Church presented a beautiful appearance with its lights and corn and fruit and flowers, and with a larger congregation of worshippers than we have noticed there on previous festivals--may we not take it for a sign that our people are year by year more sensible of God’s kindness in providing for their bodily and spiritual wants. The Psalms were chanted, and Hymns sung by the choir with spirit and care; the Hymns were "Come to thy Temple. Lord;" "Guide us, O thou great Jehovah;" "Come ye thankful people, come;" "God of mercy and of grace;" “ and "Through the day Thy love has spared us." The first lesson was read by the Rev. B. F. Turner, and the second by the Rev. — Morris; the Sermon was preached by the Rev. D. Davies, Rector of Dixton. The collection amounted to £2..8s..7d., and was devoted to the sufferers in the War in the East.

SCHOOL REGISTER.
Quarter ending October 31.
.............On Books...........................Average Attendance
Boys..........114.............................................60
Girls...........103.............................................67
Infants........145.............................................93
In comparing the number on the Books with the average attendance, it must be remembered that, while the average is taken for the whole of the last three months, the number on the Books takes in many children who have only just joined. Still even with this allowance there is much room for improvement in be matter of regular attendance of children, which it is the duty of Parents to look to.

FIRS SCHOOL.
Infants ........32 .............................................21
