Some of the liabilities, in fact, are “of sue* a pressing nature, that immediate, -hearty, and united co-operation is absolutely imperative if the church is to be kept open,” we are told. The Sunday attendance averages 1,150 ■ persons, morning and; evening, and the offertory is by no means liberally contributed to. “ The average morning offertory is L 5 2a 6d; and the evening L 7. The average coins are 4 half-crowns, 6 florins, 80 shillings, 200 sixpences. S fourpencea, ■ 145 threepences, and'9 coppers, ora total of 447 coins.” This reminds us of what a London clergyman) once'! remarked to ns. “ Until I heoame-incumbent of St. Givlittle’s,” said .the reverend gentleman, “I had no idea there wore so many three-penny pieces in -mxcQlation.t!'! f; : : Hoixoway’S ’ Ointment and Pllls.
